July 28, 2011 10:56 am I'm not crazy about any of them. The (colored) one on the right is OK, but it's a little busy. I personally wish they had stuck with the 70s "new direction" Wonder Woman where they ditched the costume altogether, and just had her kick ass while wearing awesome (but normal) clothes.

June 30, 2011 12:21 pm Patterson's sketches of Tyrion and Jon Snow are on ComicsAlliance. I'm glad that he's going with his own interpretation of what the characters look like and not the actors' likenesses.
April 8, 2011 12:01 pm I was fooled for a moment, but only because I'm reading this on April 8, and this article showed up on the "Recommended" list on some other article....whew.

Was the most recent Cloak & Dagger mini good? I always liked them when they would pop up in the Spider-books in the early 80s (I'm thinking the Silvermane arc in PPTSSM), and I was hoping they'd stick around on Utopia for a while. But every time I've read them on their own, I've been underwhelmed.

I'd like to see them as a part of Spidey's supporting cast. Maybe Peter, Tandy & Ty can bring back that old "Amazing Friends" vibe.

Why did the Bendis/Maleev Spider-Woman series end so quickly? I would've thought that the combination of semi-hot character (from her Avengers exposure) and hot creative team would have given us a hot title.

My interest in comics news ebbs and flows, so I wasn't paying attention at the time. Wikipedia says something about there being too much work in producing both the motion comic and the normal comic. So why not just scrap the motion comic, or was it a combination of that and low sales?

November 16, 2010 11:36 am It's really hard for any second- or third-tier character to have a long-lasting book these days. If you look at the Top 300 list, and you cut out the long-lived "legacy" titles (Action, Detective), there aren't all that many books that are numbered past issue #60. Plus, a lot of the high-numbered books are relaunches that have been renumbered (Cap, Amazing, Adventure, WW, Thunderbolts, etc...)

For Zod comics: one of my favorite (but seemingly forgotten) Bronze Age comics was Superman Presents: The Phantom Zone, which is about all the Phantom Zone villains breaking out, trapping Superman and Quex-Ul in the Zone, then going on a mad Kryptonian rampage all over Earth.

Did I mention that it's by Steve Gerber and has really awesome & atmospheric Gene Colan art? Also, I love how it takes the Silver Age backstories of those Phantom Zone villains, fleshes them out and makes them a lot darker. Definitely worth checking out if you're a Superman fan.
