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.

    March 7, 2012 5:01 pm Sorry I didn't mean to give it a 1 on art. the art was awesome. I'd say its 2 writing wise and 5 on art.
    January 27, 2012 5:00 pm I agree too. McKelvie and Pichelli are far more similar and would compliment each other well. I love Samnee but he just isn't a perfect match.
    January 3, 2012 7:32 pm Amazing what a colorist can do for art. This looks so much better than when he was on Cap. Bettie Breitweiser is amazing. Marvel has some of the best colorists around
    September 28, 2011 4:47 pm While I still want Jean back, this is a great idea. She was supposed to be headmistress right before she was killed so naming the school after her is a fitting tribute.
    July 19, 2011 10:17 am Don't mind Garfield at all but I dont really like this idea of first person webslinging.  Kind of nauseating.  Hopefully they wrap up the origin stuff quickly.  I agree this made me think about the Raimi films alot.
    July 14, 2011 9:13 am @misterckent I'd say the girl in pages 1-2 is Karen based on the Green eyes and the fact she is meeting an older woman with red hair who I would assume to be Jean's mom.
    July 12, 2011 1:25 pm I think Jean is the top one personally.  I hope when she finally does return she goes to Logan's side.  I think that would make for interesting dynamics.
    June 29, 2011 3:36 pm Can't wait for this! Sad to see it pushed into August though.
