    September 13, 2013 12:07 pm I can't begin to calculate how much you knuckleheads have enriched my comics enjoyment over the last few years, so please accept my heartfelt thanks for ALL your efforts. As I am obviously late to this goodbye party, I can relate to the life changes that have led to your mothballing of the ol' clubhouse here. It's a little less fun now, but my paycheck and professional fulfillment make up for it! Since Wizard World Chicago 2006 (I estimate) you guys have been my valuable, unknowing companions on a wonderful journey into this current Golden Age of the medium. I still hope to hang out with some or all of you iFanboys at a future con for comics talk, B.S. and some adult beverages. I know you're not disappearing completely, but this is kind of a big deal, and a great opportunity to again say THANK YOU! Mark Petz
    May 25, 2011 9:58 pm I'm glad Seth is getting some much-deserved love these days with the re-release of GL: Willworld. His art just blew my mind from the moment I first saw it in the amazing Vertigo Pop! Tokyo mini and the couple of issues of Doom Patrol that he did (2002). Soon after that I hunted down copies of GL:Willworld and Flash: Time Flies on eBay.

    I still pull out his work from time to time and just shake my head in disbelief. He definitely had that classic Moebius vibe -- and so much more.

    I was very shaken when I heard that he had died. @halik, I thought his fall was accidental.
    March 25, 2011 11:24 am Aaagh!!! And there are childrenn invovled - somebody call Protective Services!
    March 23, 2011 10:25 pm If it's a Showcase, here's my vote for Kamandi.
    And Swamp Thing.
    And The Creeper.
    And more Spectre.
    Ooh, and Doom Patrol and Sgt. Rock and Atom and Jonah Hex and...(ad infanboyitum)
    March 10, 2011 9:03 pm I love you, Tony Moore, but this book looked like crap.  I don't know if he tried to do final finishes after some of the pages were stolen, or if somebody else got their mitts on them (the credits are not very clear). Either way, somebody at the end of the pre-press process should have hit the brakes.

    Two things I am certain of: 1) the problem is not with Tony's pencil work and 2) the default Marvel puke-dark color pallette ruined these pages.

    Shame on Marvel for letting this go to press when the price was set at $4.
    March 9, 2011 4:19 pm @cskilpatrick I do remember the discussion of DP #1, now that you mention it. But you and/or Josh should have stuck with it. There were some standout issues that focused on individal team members, sorting out their convoluted continuity. I'd encourage you to track down some of the issues and read them in chunks. Or maybe it's more of a Josh book, since it had echoes of the Vertigo days.
    March 9, 2011 3:59 pm Somehow, I missed the February announcement of the Doom Patrol cancellation. I thought it was highly entertaining and Clark's art was beautiful. But, I'm not surprised, because I never heard it mentioned on the iFanboy or EOCC podcasts, so there wasn't even a buzz among the intelligentsia to boost sales by a few hundred copies.
    March 9, 2011 3:49 pm I'm a life-long Doc Savage fan and was really excited when I heard that DC had acquired the rights for reviving the character. Then I tried to read the comic.

    Now, the flagship book, First Wave, started strong. But I recently grabbed #5 off my stack and couldn't remember anything that had happened in #4.

    To quote Huey Lewis, "Sometimes bad is bad."
    January 26, 2011 9:04 am T-shirt please! I love how these iFanboy comedy memes have blown up today, with this drawing and Paul's showdown.
    January 24, 2011 10:14 am Old timers like me will insist that such a team be lead by Baron Winters, from Marv Wolfman's NIGHT FORCE (1982-1983). He's due for a revival, which may be on the horizon as DC just solicited a TPB of the first several issues (although I'm sure you can find back issues easily enough).
