    August 29, 2013 12:45 pm In no particular order 1. Avengers Arena 2. Locke and Key 3. Saga 4. Batman 5. Daredevil I hate to be THAT guy, but I'll be THAT guy. No Locke and Key in the iFanyboy staff top 5?
    August 13, 2013 12:43 pm I think I liked this better when it was called "Who wants to be a Superhero?"
    July 1, 2013 1:53 pm I can't even get myself psyched up for Emerald City ComicCon and I live in Seattle. Gotta buy the tickets way early, no parking anywhere close to the venue unless you show up 2 hours before open. You can take the bus pretty easily, but that means if you pick up anything, and you're going to pick up something, you have to haul it back home on the bus. The buses don't run efficiently on the weekends anyway. Then you get there, and they've been sold out for months but people still wait in line to try to buy tickets. Even if you have tickets, you can't get in because of the fire code. Luckily its lightly raining outside so you stay cool, but now all the cosplayers smell like wet dog and clown makeup. Heck, even some attendees who aren't cosplaying smell like wet dog. What I'd like to see is separate venues for separate areas of interest. Yes Hollywood fanboys and fangirls, you are over in this other building to see the Twighlight/Thor/Spider-Man teaser. Comics and Graphic Novels are over in this other venue. Video gamers over there, board/RPG gamers over there. Big cosplay "look at me, look at me" ball and contest over there. Done! It would really be nice to have a kids comic-con too. One just for families & kids under 15 maybe. Emerald City CC had a nice family area outside of the main con a couple of years ago. Balloon animals, coloring, etc... Maybe have Pixar animators, Tiny Titans artists, character cosplay.
    June 26, 2013 2:23 pm This was amazing. The only thing I wonder about is the timeline in this issue as it relates to Punisher Max. Not a big deal, just curious. In a really, really good week, this is the first one I picked up and read before all of the others.
    February 28, 2013 2:40 pm I didn't read B&R much after the new 52 relaunch, but I never got a father-son vibe from Damian and Bruce. It seems to me that Dick and Damian were much closer than Bruce and Damian. I think Dick will be affected much more by Damian's death than Bruce, hopefully the next few bat issues will reflect that, at least in the Nightwing book if no where else.
    May 3, 2012 3:14 pm True, this may not be my cup of tea, but someone may enjoy it. It's much better to leaf through it at the store and decide whether or not to pick it up. It does indeed capture the feel of the show. Unfortunately, it captures the feel of the show at it's worst rather than best in my opinion.
    May 3, 2012 3:12 pm I'm pretty sure I agree with this statement.
    April 30, 2012 3:34 pm I've read 1,2, and 3 of the digital versions. I don't know if they are different from the print version, but they are really really bad. Not just the story, the art is pretty bad. Like 8th grade art class bad. They kind of TRY to make the characters look like the actors and actresses from the show, but then they just end up looking like doofy versions of the real people. But the dialog is really bland and uninspiring. And I had the bar set LOW for this too.

    I think this is when we'll see Clark fly under his own control. Jor-El telling him he couldn't fly because of a mental block. Getting a big blue kryptonite spike stuck in you and falling off of a building might be enough to break that block. Jor-El also said he was "too attached" to things on Earth and needed to let go of them before he could fly. Clark was ready to be transported off the planet with the Kandorians if need be to save Earth and has said all his goodbyes.

     

    My guess is he flies during the season opener after pulling out the blue kryptonite. 

    April 28, 2010 12:15 pm Loved this issue. I picked it up after reading this post. One thing that went through my head while reading: I'd love to see this issue drawn by Jamie McKelvie of Phonogram/Rue Britannia fame.
