March 25, 2021 5:54 pm Conor, I had given up on readying Nightwing a long time ago, and I thought the shot in the head a few years back put the nail in the coffin. But thanks to your review last week I gave it a read and was very happy to have been steered in the right direction. I am a fan of Tom Taylor and shouldn't have been surprised. I listen to iFanboy because you and Josh often highlight books that I would take a pass on. Thanks for work you guys do. Best, Chris McClelland
March 26, 2018 3:41 pm So if you like Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw you should pick up their Image story God Country. Great book, more along the lines of Thor than Cates horror stuff. And the two of them only started on Thanos at issue 13 so you don't have much to catch up on. And you'll love who their version of Ghost Rider is. Trust me.
November 18, 2011 9:23 am DC is about to reprint the Fourth World omnibuses as trade paperbacks. They'll be much more affordable then.
November 4, 2011 1:54 pm I would give the thumbs up for Buddha. The only problem I had with it was occasionally the translation would put in modern slang which really didn't seem to work with the period of time in which the story took place.
November 3, 2011 11:18 am Been enjoying the podcasts for a year now. Decided to create an account and join in the fun. Comics storage. A problem for the ages. I have been trying to pare down my comics collection for the past several years due to storage concerns. If I have a run in a book then the single issues go. DC did me a big favor with the reboot as I no longer felt I needed to keep my 20+ year runs of the Superman and Batman titles, so I just kept the stories I liked and the rest went. I do keep comics with the thought that I would read them again someday if time permitted. (Maybe when I retire, because the stack of unread books still continues to grow!) However, I have been moving more towards viewing comics as disposable entertainment. A lot of the new stuff that I am reading these days is going to go back to my store in a year. I might enjoy reading the new OMAC but don't think that I need to keep it forever. I do like the idea of digital comics in order to remove the storage issue but I like the idea of supporting my local store better. Plus I still have a problem with not owning the digital file of the comic I would purchase from digital comics vendors. If they go out of business I still want to be able to read my comic again. The best of both worlds would be a free digital copy for every physical copy I buy but I don't think that will ever happen.
