Name: Clayton Gumbert

Bio: I've been reading comics off and on for about 20 years and I'm currently on again. I'm mostly a Marvel Zombie, but pick up a few DC and Indie titles. Some of my all time favorite comics and runs are: Starman (James Robinson series, of course), Shade The Changing Man (the first baker's dozen or so), The Giffen-Dematteis JLA (including FKAJL and ICBINJL), Gruenwald's Captain America Run (until Armor Cap! I draw the line somewhere!) Waid-Garneys Cap, Brubakers Cap (That first issue brought me back to comics.), Milligan's X-Force, Gruenwald's Quasar, Byrne's West Coast Avengers, The first 25 issues of The New Warriors, SUICIDE SQUAD!, The Tick, Milk & Cheese, Dark Knight Returns and All-Star Superman. That's only a few. Oh, and Marshal Law. And the first Lobo mini. Right now I read all the Avengers titles, Incredible Herc, NOVA!, Walking Dead, Ghost Rider, Spidey, T-Bolts, Booster Gold, Cap, X-Men Legacy and a few others. Also, ask me about the status quo of any major Marvel hero between the years of 1989 and 1991 and you will never shut me up. Generally, people who don't understand the genius of MST3K or Calvin & Hobbes make me not believe in God. That and the fact that he doesn't exist. I only tolerate beautiful people who believe in God, because they have a reason to. And The British Office owns the American Office. Don't front.

    June 29, 2009 6:45 pm The premise seems very 90's. "Force Works" anyone?

    Who says a costumer needs to be well-read? As long as they have good taste in fabric and can use a sewing machine, they should be good to go!

    June 13, 2009 1:40 pm Oh, and by the by, did anyone else think the cover, and especially the corner box with the Jim Lee artwork, made this look like a comic you would get free after sending in candy wrappers or something? I could imagine myself as a kid looking at this cover and going, "These characters don't belong together!"
    May 28, 2009 11:52 pm Great review! It did seem like the tentative, more human Hood we met in the first mini-series was replaced by some super confident bad ass once Bendis started using the character. It was awesome to see that Jeff Parker is splitting the difference with his portrayal. And I also loved seeing Kyle Holtz back drawing this character. I'm excited for next issue.
    May 26, 2009 11:47 am I just realized how many times I used the word "really" in my Punisher #5 review. I'm really sorry.
    May 22, 2009 3:22 am Why isn't Marvel going the whole way with X-Men Forever and enlisting a bunch of hot 90's talents to do arcs on this book? It would crank the nostalgia factor up a couple more notches. I'm sure they could get a lot of them for cheap. What is Stephen Platt doing nowadays?

    April 30, 2009 12:24 am So was the Worldmind we got to know in this book ALWAYS Ego, or was he replaced at some point by Ego? And if so, has the Worldmind been destroyed? I'd assume he's not, but with Abnett and Lanning you never know!
