This entire book – story, art, and back materials is an A class presentation. It doesn’t feel like a 2.99…

August 8, 2011 3:03 pm I'm dropping Fantastic Four. Which is sad for me because I thought it would be my book, the book I collected through thick and thin. I just can't behind a lot of the artists recently and it has lost a kind of cohesion from when it was Fantastic Four.
August 7, 2011 8:55 am This review was really entertaining. You definitely captured the feel of your points, nice job.
August 3, 2011 7:41 pm They look like that initiative DC did a while ago with the white covers + single image + logos. 
August 3, 2011 1:34 pm I hope they add more diversity to the cast. In a major metropolitan newspaper that's going to be actual truth of the staff. Besides Superman loves all people, right? There's that line in all the Geoff Johns Superman-Legion stories "the earth belongs to everyone - So Says Superman." This is perfect. Maybe they'll add a female-version of Jimmy Olsen? That'd be really cool. Especially as a nice balance to Lois.
August 1, 2011 4:42 pm I only buy one Marvel book because the comments that Bendis and Brevoort make in regards to DC's relaunch truly bothered me. That book is FF.
I wanted to collect FF until the day I die, I am in love with the characters since the Millar run, and have purchased a significant amount of trades.  I love Hickman and what he's trying to do to make comics better, but I know for a fact that he will find work other places, and actually, I'd kind of him rather work on his indie stuff.
I was going to get the new Hulk book with Jason Aaron, who I truly love and think he's the best writer in comics.
I certainly won't be picking up the Hulk book now.
I don't know if I'll drop FF since there is so much emotional connection for me, but I'm honestly thinking about it due to Mr. Bissette's post.

All this "what can we buy at our store's if we don't buy Jack Kirby stuff?" How about the indie books that all aspire to be Kirby-like? Savage Dragon, Invincible, Walking Dead, Scalped, Fables, Hellboy - it may not seem like it, but everyone wishes they could be like Kirby, in their own ways. Every indie book wants to be great, a lot are, I think this is a perfect oppurtunity to support that.
August 1, 2011 2:55 pm I dropped this book on Issue 2, was it ever worth picking back up?
July 19, 2011 8:05 pm Hopefully they sell as well as the DC Superman book, it'll be nice if they release more stuff like this.
July 19, 2011 12:47 pm It's going to be sloppy seconds. Everything he has ever quickly drawn and sketched quickly will be printed. 
July 11, 2011 1:07 pm Either Jason Aaron is typing on a typewriter in the background, or he is loading a gun ala "Forrest Gump".
June 30, 2011 3:05 pm @MadMartigan, I'm right there with you. I'm so stoked and proud of comics, and being a fan.
They make me feel that even with my lack of funds to buy books, I can still get a great value of buying these comics, even just the few I will be able to buy. Also, the digital discount thing? Hugely excited, because I will be able to follow a few more books that I don't need to own.
