Name: Matthew Swanson

Bio: I'm a 28 year old guy from Connecticut. I'm currently a high school history teacher.  I also run the school comic book club. lol I got into comics through the Ultimate line after seeing X-Men The Movie and I haven't looked back since. I started out as an X-Men fan but have fallen in love with the Avengers since Bendis took over. I'm primarily a Marvel fan but do read a few DC books every month. My favorite writer is Brian K Vaughan and I really like Steve McNiven and Michael Gaydos' art.   I hope to make some new friends since I dont know anyone who reads comics in my real life.

    January 19, 2013 5:40 pm Love lying cat and there is something about the stalk that is just awesome. The design is amazing. Fiona Staples is god. I didn't get one of her prints at NYCC this year but I that she's there next year so I can. The cover to this issue is great.
    August 26, 2012 3:45 pm I agree they should cancel Green Arrow and Hawkman and let John's really tell their story here. Those books are near unreadable.
    August 21, 2012 12:25 pm Love Immonen's art. Looks interesting.
    August 15, 2012 5:42 pm Id'd also love to see Majorie Liu take X-23 back since Academy is ending. She did a great job with the character in her solo series. Astonishing X-Men would be a good place for her.
    August 15, 2012 5:36 pm I think Age of Ultron is going to be a separate event. I began reading Avengers with Bendis. Before him I was an X-Men only guy. His departure is definately the end of an era. If it wasn't Hickman and Remender taking over I would probably be seriously consider cutting the titles from my pull list. Hickman has not disappointed me yet and since Uncanny X-Force neither has Remender. I'll be sad to see Avengers Academy go but I won't mind not spending the 4 or 8 bucks a month. I definately dont like what looks to be a dead Jessica Jones on the cover of NA. Boo to that!
    July 16, 2012 10:48 am I really like this cast. Its amazing how much Olivia kind of looks like Gamora already just paint her green. For Rocket I love the idea of Dinklage he is so good on Game of Thrones. I wonder if they aren't going to try a costume for Rocket since Groot will likely be motion capture. I just hope they keep the "I AM GROOT!" I don't know how you have this team take on Thanos and win if you are going to put him in opposition to the Avengers next unless this is about him collecting the infinity gems and they prevent him from getting the last one which ends up on earth and he goes after it there?
    July 2, 2012 12:27 pm I hope this is true!!!!!! Been missing her for so long.
