    January 5, 2012 12:00 am I also really enjoyed the series based on the Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon.
    January 4, 2012 11:51 pm CGW was fun for what it was, I think the major problem being too much happening too fast with not enough time to dig into the characters. It actually DID start out as an extended miniseries featuring all the characters divided up into four 4-issue arcs each focusing on a specific city. Dark Horse recently released the whole thing as a digest-sized omibus for those curious to check it out.
    December 20, 2011 12:03 am Gorgeous art aside, may I take a moment to cheer the return of the editor's asterisk!
    November 2, 2011 12:17 pm My day job is as a choir director, singer and teacher but my other passion outside of comics is Disney - especially the parks - and believe me, that sub-culture has its own set of jargon, podcasts, conventions, celebrity and nerd-rage.
    November 2, 2011 12:00 pm If I remember correctly, there was also a run of "Dial H" in another DC series, possibly Adventure or Action Weekly where part of the gimmick was that all the heroes created by the dial were actually sent in by readers.
    October 27, 2011 11:15 am I'm all for it. I don't even mind a word balloon or two.
    October 27, 2011 11:13 am I love the black dress shoes with white ankle socks. That's a look.
    October 25, 2011 1:03 am Whew! I'm a mere 46. You win. Been reading since the mid 70s and I have the longboxes to prove it. Oy my achin' back. Lots of great books this week PLUS i'm still catching up with all the stuff I bought at NYCC. Loved the first issue of the new Star Trek series - I hope that book sticks around.
    October 19, 2011 12:19 pm I recently came across this series in my longboxes while cataloging comics. I remember how with each issue I'd almost be afraid to turn the pages in fear of a favorite character biting the dust. It was great to read a series where "No One Is Safe" was actually a true statement! I think that is also a sticking point in making the book into a TV series since you would never be able to keep a lead actor in the show to draw viewers.
    October 11, 2011 11:22 am Haven't bought an Absolute since New Frontier. This definitely goes on my shelf.
