Bio: Lapsed comics reader. Who returned with the New 52 and same-day-as-print digital releases. I have too many boxes of comics as it is. Now I just want to read, not collect.



I hate it but I think I’m done with Hawkman, at least until they change up the creatives. I really,…

May 1, 2012 10:24 am I've been burned by Krul too many times. Give the whole book over the Palmiotti and Gray, and I'll gladly fork over the money. But until Krul is gone, I'll find other ways to spend my money. Seriously, why do they keep giving that guy books to ruin?
February 3, 2012 1:15 pm My standard response to the hater is, 'Don't like it, don't buy it." It's that simple. DC publishing these books in no way impacts your love of the original, other than in your mind.
December 29, 2011 10:32 am All Star Western has been the surprise hit of DC's New 52. I'm totally loving the interplay between Hex and Arkham. The art is a bit loose for my tastes, but not to the point of being distracting. I want more of the Religion of Crime, but I feel certain that we'll be seeing them again. My big complaint is with the backup stories. I wish DC would scrap them.
December 21, 2011 3:13 pm Way of the Rat was an awesome title also. I just couldn't seem to get into Brath though.
December 21, 2011 3:11 pm I would freaking LOVE to have Sojourn back. I really enjoyed the series and thought Greg Land's art was sensational back then. So much so that I was surprised when I came back to comics to discover that he now seems to be reviled by most fans.
December 20, 2011 8:40 am I'm talking about passive attention: looking, staring, even ogling. I'm not saying that it's not necessarily rude, just that it is something that has to be expected. People look, stare, and even ogle without even realizing that they are doing it. And people will disagree on at what point a glance or innocent look becomes a stare or an ogle. Again, I have never, and would never, advocate verbal abuse or groping. In fact, I would be inclined to intercede to stop such behavior.
December 20, 2011 8:31 am @Maty "So it’s the passive observer getting to control, judge and condemn (or ogle, stare or pinch, or verbally abuse) all participants in exterior stimulus." A passive observer isn't going to pinch or verbally abuse. I have not, and would not, advocate anyone behaving that way. In fact, I would be inclined to intercede to stop such behavior. However, staring or ogling is rather subjective and often unintentional behavior. People certainly deserve to be treated with civility. I'm not arguing that hurtful comments or uninvited physical contact is appropriate. All I'm saying is that if you're doing something to draw attention to yourself, you have no right to be offended when people look at you.
December 19, 2011 10:32 pm @Maty So instead, people should held to your definition of what is acceptable behavior? How long is the difference between a glance and a stare? Who gets to define what is an acceptable level of attention and what isn't? To what extent is that person responsible for communicating it to the rest of us, and through which channels? If the stimulus wasn't there, the reaction to that stimulus wouldn't be an issue.
December 19, 2011 10:17 pm It's not about punishing anyone. It's about unrealistic expectations. You have every right to dress as you wish. However, you have to be prepared to accept the consequence of your actions. If you deviate too far from the norm, you have to expect attention. If I went to a Goth club dressed like a hippy, I should expect a certain about of attention. In that instance I would be the one violating the folkways, and should not expect everyone else to moderate their reactions because they *might* make me uncomfortable.
