Name: Paul Dinger

Bio: I am fifty, single, and live in Ione California.  I have been a comics fan forever, I can't think of a time when I didn't have at least a huge stack in my room of comics that I love.  Now, I have a whole room full of a growing collection.  I can't imagine a life without them.  I am a teacher, have been for twelve years.  Recently, I was a victim of the Republican war on public servants and was laid off and demoted.  Now I am an office worker, something I hope will change but that hasn't happened yet.  I have had to cut back on comic buying, but I still go nearly every week to my comic store to buy what's new.  I don't buy as much, but I still buy.

    January 13, 2013 8:47 pm This is really becoming a rather sad trend at Marvel, put out an issue hinting at a real change, like Thor's 'death' in Fear Itself, Captain America's 'death' in Civil War, or basically any change in status quo, and then go back on it. This one is sensless and pointless. Did DC's 52 really freak out Quesada? Why because they are doing stuff you have done hundreds of times. Marvel has gone to the reboot well so often, that even that is a cliche. I love great stories, and I wish Marvel would stop the gimmicks and give them back to us, free from a heavy hand of cliche.
    January 3, 2013 1:16 pm This is turning out to be really good. They took a crappy idea and made something okay out of it. Now stop imitating one of the worst ideas DC ever did and have Peter Parker wake up saying "It was only a dream."
    January 3, 2013 1:14 pm Spider man is the one comic that everytime they do something to 'fix it' it blows up in Marvel's face. Not only wasn't this book good melodrama, but it flies in the face of everything that came before it. Doc Ock is a mass murderer, a true psycho. This isn't quite as bad as the clone saga, but I can see it is not going to have a pleasent effect on sales. Didn't Marvel learn from sticking others in the main role, has that ever worked out? How are they going to undo this without it making no sense. Readers stuck with the mess of "One More Day" and it's equally horrible followup because what came after was good. Are they going to be so willing the next time? I just have this to say again, This has NEVER worked out.
    July 3, 2012 11:47 pm Despite very appealing performances, this movie did suck. Come on, how many high school girls can whip up a cure for reptileism, and is it a virus that causes it, and then would there be a 'cure?' It was just too stupid for me to buy. Further, why did they need to do a reboot? They have had several Bonds and they didn't recreate the story for them. Further, where was J. Jonah Jameson? And for crying out loud, why is it Spiderman kept his mask on for thousands of comics and can't keep it on for a single movie?
    May 6, 2012 10:32 pm I am really loving this series. I am not ready to forgive Marvel for One More Day or One Day More or any of that other crap, but I still buy these things because they are good. Now part of the world is catching on fire? Oh my gosh, what is going to happen next? How long do I have to wait for the next issue?
    May 6, 2012 10:29 pm Can the Avengers really win without Wolverine? I don't think trashing Logan was such a great idea. Captain America has never been a fan of Wolverine, check out the 'team up' in one of CA's annuals, and this time he is letting his hatred get the better of him. This is really turning into an anti mutant moment here which could backfire. I can't wait to see what happens next.
    May 6, 2012 10:26 pm I really liked the movie. There is a reason Marvel's movies are awesome, for the most part, and a lot of DC's aren't. Marvel had it right the first time. This is The Avengers as they were in the comic, if anything this movie is faithful to the spirit of Marvel comics, the emphasis on character and action as opposed to other things. The Avengers were nothing like the Justice League. They were togather because why wouldn't they? Wheras the Avengers were togather because someone had to do something, and they didn't always like each other. This has held through out the years. Even now DC can't get the Justice League to work and Marvel can invent Avenger title after Avenger title without running out of steam.
    July 26, 2011 9:26 pm Comic Con this year was mainly about waiting in line.  The only thing that really changed is that now they had lines for everything.  I couldn't get into Cup of Joe and several comic presentations because of those long, long, long lines.
    June 18, 2011 2:47 pm Yet another attempt by Dan Didio to 'shake things up' by alienating longtime fans.   I start thinking it is safe to buy some titles again after leaving DC in the wake of Final Crisis and RIP, and DC cancels the very titles that brought me back.  How does this make sense?
    June 10, 2011 6:35 pm Yeah, let's put Grant Morrison on Superman.  He after all only almost destroyed Batman, so let's let him go on Superman, this time he might succeed.
