Name: Adam Cowell

Bio: I have been collecting and reading comics since I was 8 years old. Amazing Spiderman # 269 was my first comic book. From there I have been entranced by the likes of the X-Men, X-Force, Fantastic Four, Fear Agent, Y the Last Man, Invincible, Spiderman, Walking Dead and anything Batman. I will read anything by Snyder, Kirkman, Vaughan, or Remender.

July 12, 2012 8:34 pm I completely agree, this was emotionally a kick in the nuts. I had chills after the initial crack of the bat. I thought to myself " oh shit Glen is gonna be okay, he might just make it".... and then his hat fell off and i nearly shit myself. I thought a lot about what disturbed me most about this scene and i have come to the conclusion that it was him calling out to maggie. I will admit i actually had to take a minute to put the book down and gather myself. It was gut renching to know that glenn was going to be a father and that he begged for his life and it was still snuffed out....

February 14, 2012 8:08 pm Uncanny X men Daredevil Batman BQ: watched about 10 min. of it. what i saw was decent.
February 3, 2012 12:05 pm @ blargo. I completely agree. I seems as if buddy has a closer relationship with his daughter than his son. if this is the case Cliff watching the movie to glean a better understanding of his fathers life as a super hero ties nicely into the story and provides a backdrop to the rot story line. Must me hard on Cliff knowing his sister and dad have super powers and he does not.
February 1, 2012 7:46 pm If you dropped this book i would be really interested in what you are actually keeping. This book in my opinion is top notch.
January 28, 2012 9:48 am I was thinking the same exact thing. A cross between Javier Bardem's character in No Country For Old Men and Samurai Jack... Now that is one serious dude.
January 25, 2012 8:01 pm @ flapjaxx. I do think some of your points are well founded but the crux of your argument is flawed. You say you rarely frequent this site any more; i believe if you did you would glean the scope of just how insightful and often brutally honest some of the critics are about the comics that frequent these pages. Yes i agree in your judgement of Scott being the “It guy that we are all in love with" It is sometimes over the top? yes; but frankly the guy deserves the credit and i am as guilty as the next man in singing his praises. But who else has put out material the likes of Swamp Thing, American Vampire, Severed, and Batman. Take a moment and think about the last time a writer has put out that amount consistently solid material. Lastly i must disagree with your assumption that this current arc in Batman is simply "look for the owls" If you have read these books than you know it has explored much more than the simple facade of a man named Talon hunting down Batman. This book is coated with an aura of suspense and mystery that begs to be solved. Sure we know of the Court of Owls but we know very little about who they are and why they have remained hidden for so long. You may just say i am another fanboy of Scott's and that may be a fair assessment but i believe you are wrong in your critique of this site as a global entity. There are plenty of folks on this site not shy about letting their feelings fly, but its hard to criticize something that is so well written.
January 25, 2012 7:19 pm I just picked up all the trades this past weekend. I am on book 3 and loving this story. I feel like it gets better with every turn of the page. This book has a lot of crass but at times also displays a sensitivity to its characters that is rarely felt in other stories. Simply a great read.
