    December 21, 2012 2:34 pm That He-Man cover belongs on the side of my sweet 1970's van.
    September 13, 2012 11:16 pm Gimmick aside, they had me at Kev Walker. Not to mention Avengers Academy was one of the only Marvel titles I read that introduced new characters I actually cared about. I'll give it a shot.
    March 2, 2012 1:59 pm I think the issue with Uncanny X-Men is not the line-up of the team or content of the book--it's the art. I was sold on having Pacheco do interiors but Greg Land killed it for me and I dropped it cold. Surprising how any writer comes off as dull without a great artist holding it down.
    September 13, 2011 4:13 pm I didn't think I would be into Superman/Batman or Red Hulk, but I can't deny me some McGuiness. Should be fun.
    September 9, 2011 4:41 pm Something that I think gets left out of the conversation in talking about your LCS or comics retailer in general is the price of everything these days. I was on a strictly Trade-waiting/online ordering kick until I started to get into the iFanboy community and buying single issue comics again, just to stay current and in the conversation. The LCS in my area is great and pretty typical in terms of service and environment--great guys, great store. But as someone with a limited disposable income, I couldn't afford to drop the kind of cash single issue comics go for. Why would I pay full price for something I can get a reasonable discount for on a site like DCBS? I had to make the switch just to keep things affordable. Maybe it's an age thing, but I get enough community on sites like this one--I don't need to hang out at my LCS and spend way more money than I need to. The digital aspect can only bring comics to a broader audience. I've downloaded more comics from an array of publishers I never would've known about because of having to pre-order. DC has definitely got me to try out some #1 issues digitally that I may never have had access to under the current system. I think everyone should realize that comics will probably always be a niche market and that's ok.
    August 26, 2011 5:28 pm Better yet, if you're having trouble finding something new and exciting out there, check out the quarter bins. There is some seriously crazy and nutty things that were published not too long ago that fell through the cracks. Seriously. Crazy (and sometimes great) stuff. And not always from publishers you've ever heard of.
    August 26, 2011 5:25 pm Just put the gun down Josh. Step. Away. From the gun. Good stuff.
    August 22, 2011 9:45 am Please oh please let him be part of the regular art rotation. I can't take any more of these fill-ins. Opena & Rodriguez to close 2011 and beyond.
    August 18, 2011 1:18 pm You can tell when he's got a lot going on project-wise. This looks like someone dropped it in his lap last minute. I am interested in Disco Hulk back there though.
    August 17, 2011 3:38 pm Wow. Marvel really put a ton of thought into these. Looks like someone half-assed it on their lunch break.
