This is honestly the worst experience I’ve ever had reading a comic. It was brutally awful. I’m not normally a…

September 2, 2013 11:17 pm Since everyone else is doing it, I'll give my iFanboy testimony as well. Growing up, I bought the occasional random Batman issue or trade, but never read any other comics really. Around 6 years ago, I was just out of college and wanted to get my foot in the door of the tech industry. I ended up taking a contract job where I had to review terrible content such as graphic violence and child abuse for 40 hours a week plus lots of over time. As you may imagine, this was really emotionally straining, and I needed a way to keep my sanity. I always kind of dug those occasional Batman comics but wanted more, though I was afraid to walk into a comic shop without knowing what series were available and which were any good. While googling, I stumbled across iFanboy and started reading articles. Soon I was listening to all the podcasts and videos on iFanboy while working that terrible job, and it really kept my mind off all the terribleness. I soon found a local comic shop and some series that really hit home with me, and now I'm a regular $30 per week spender at my local shop going on 5 and a half years (with a better job, by the way). So, thanks for helping me keep my sanity. Thanks for helping me find so many of my favorite series, writers, and artists. Thanks for Local, Scott Pilgrim, Sweet Tooth, Saga, Greg Rucka, Darwyn Cooke, Jeff Lemire, and all the other greatness you guys opened up to me with your articles and podcasts over the years at iFanboy.
August 27, 2013 12:22 pm Scott Pilgrim :-( I really wish it was way up high on that list.
July 28, 2013 11:36 am I agree the first two of the arc weren't the best issues but I liked them okay. However, this issue -- both art and story -- was one of my favorites of the series.
June 25, 2013 12:26 pm Really enjoyed the first 2 issues so much, I hope more people catch on.
May 28, 2013 3:36 pm Really looking forward to the new artist -- his work on the last miniseries was absolutely my favorite.
April 15, 2013 10:23 am To me Marko is James McAvoy but JGL would be excellent as well!
March 24, 2013 2:55 pm Wow this book has been consistently well done in both art and story. I hope Santolouco joins the main series on art and cowriting duties.
March 24, 2013 2:53 pm My shop didn't get this either (nor Saga). They also forgot to save the previous issue for me and ran out. Grrr. Really behind now. Thank goodness they've been constant with the Footclan mini though. My favorite arc of the entire series for sure.
March 23, 2013 12:23 pm Took a few pages to get used to the new art but I really enjoyed this fun little one shot. I think I read a couple months back that Niles may be done with Mystery Society but I hope that's not the case!
August 25, 2012 3:22 pm Never disappoints!
