May 13, 2013 9:37 pm Earth One is a different universe so basically he'd be starting over again with the character. Also, Azzarello's run has been pretty boring as far as WW goes so I'm glad Grant's giving it a go.
October 9, 2012 12:36 am Nah, you're good. I like reading about Peter not being a failure. Slott's made Amazing Spider-Man the most consistently good book on the stands for like, a year. He's got a ridiculously long run that's just enjoyable to read month in and month out. If you don't like that, its on you.
September 29, 2012 3:22 pm Nah. Just know there was a multiverse introduced in 2006, and nothing of any substance was EVER done with it. Mainly because they were waiting on this book. And here it is, and it looks and sounds amazing IMO.
August 9, 2012 12:17 pm I actually bet there wouldn't be any yuri on this list. Glad to see I was wrong. Pretty good list overall, though I'll admit I'm one of the people who doesn't personally agree with Kashimashi being a yuri series, I'm not going to argue with someone for including it.
June 11, 2012 2:52 pm The only title I'll miss is JLI. Can Dan Jurgens go do Booster Gold again now? That was getting rather good. Also, Scott Lobdell on Superman? I guess.
June 5, 2012 12:19 pm I finally understand why Marvel has, and will continue to, stomp DC. Despite the fact that I think DC has the superior universe and characters, they don't believe so. They're ashamed of their characters--so we get silly shit like Green Arrow in jail when nobody even knows who Green Arrow is, and a Kryptonian Lex Luthor. Marvel, when they finally got control of their characters, made them all look JUST like their comic versions. They're direct adaptations. They put Captain America on the big screen wearing the flag as a costume and a giant star on his chest and an A on his forehead, and they've made hundreds of millions of dollars in profit off that and other characters. But DC is ashamed of every character except Batman, so we can't go a full decade without a new Batman film, and Batman's had a cartoon on almost every year since 1992. Brilliant.
April 30, 2012 10:21 pm Yeah, because clearly people are asking for that. Not like, accessible shows that can be for everyone like Avatar, JLU, Young Justice, or Avengers: EHM. Because it's not like those series are popular at all, right?
April 30, 2012 8:57 pm Okay. For the record, I don't have much of a problem with Ultimate Spider-Man.* It doesn't TOUCH Spectacular Spider-Man, but then after that series it was done so well the same approach would have been (and is) a little silly to try in the first place. A few things though: Man, kids will watch anyhing. Second: The idea was put forward, for some reason I cannot fathom, that some things SHOULD be made just for kids. ....Why? Don't get me wrong, there should be cartoons for like, 2-5 year olds to watch. But once my child is going to first grade, it's time for Avatar. I just don't see giving a child something that's both entertaining and mentally stimulating as a bad thing. It would be one thing for fans to ask for something like The Ultimates to be made into a cartoon and put on Saturday Mornings. But, to my knowledge, no one's asking for that. We're just asking for series of the same quality as Avatar: TLA and TLK, Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice, and even Batman: Brave and the Bold (it was funny, light-hearted, and very well-done). This idea that there need to be things that are juvenile in nature to appeal to kids "even more" than what's out there that appeals to just seems a little toxic to me. That said, I would never insult a parent for enjoying watching a show like this with their children. At least they're monitoring what their children watch and spending time with them--that makes them heroes of a different sort, in my eyes.
February 28, 2012 1:30 pm Personally I'm still culling the 30+ comics I picked up at the start of this. Either that or natural culling (I was reading Static and OMAC) has lead to me not having to worry about certain titles. Still, with the mini-series included I'm up to something like 23 titles, which is still over half the line if you cut the eight titles that just got canceled. It's definitely worth it, though I concur that it would've been better to have more arcs ending at different times.
