September 18, 2013 2:21 pm The first thing I thought about with regards to the "villain cross-over" question was the Acts of Vengeance storyline from the late '80s/early 90s, not sure how many people read it, but the whole point was that villains would fight heroes they never fought before. Haven't read it since then, but I'm kind of surprised marvel's never done Act of Vengeance 2 (or Atlantic Attacks 2, for that matter).
September 1, 2013 9:56 pm Wow, I'm sad to see the daily updates go, this was literally my first stop online once my lunch break started at work every single day. I understand how much work it must have been and I'm glad that the podcast will continue, but I will definitely miss everything on the site. The strange thing about podcasts is that listeners do create a bond (admittedly one-sided) with the hosts. I've listened to every single episode and I was genuinely excited when I met Conor and Ron at the Boston Comic Con a few years ago. I was thrilled when one of my reviews made the show (Ruse, by Mark Waid). I was sad when Ron left. I know that it was a ton of work, but I can't reiterate enough how much I appreciate and enjoyed everything that this website brought to my life. Finally, I'd like to thank the entire iFanbase. This is literally the only website that I will read the comments section. I have gotten into, and simply observed, many interesting debates and discussions with people on this site and it has remained incredibly civil, interesting, and lively. Kudos to all of you, I wish I could have met some of you in person, it was fun while it lasted.
August 15, 2013 1:06 pm Add me to the list of Dr. Dinosaur fans. His first appearance (which I think was in a Free Comic Book Day issue) was one of the few comics that made me laugh out loud multiple times. I joined twitter just to follow him.
August 9, 2013 2:20 pm Jordie Bellaire might be the best in business at setting the mood with color. That Robocop is amazing.
July 3, 2013 1:28 pm That's really cool, I can't wait to start seeing those on the road.
July 2, 2013 12:52 pm I know I'm really beating a dead horse here, but this series was awesome from start to finish and definitely worth checking out when they release it in trade. I'm really glad that Ennis has the clout to get something like this off the ground, even if it's only for a little while.
July 1, 2013 1:24 pm Sleeper is defnitely worth checking out. I just re-read it a few weeks ago and it's still some of the best Brubaker stuff I've read (and he's one of my favorites, so that's saying a lot).
July 1, 2013 1:13 pm I look at San Diego the same way I look at the Super Bowl. I suppose I should go at some point just so I can appreciate the spectacle and say I've been there, but ultimately it just seems like too much of a hassle, too many lines, and way to expensive to ever actually do it. I always used to say that my local con (Boston) was just the right size, big enough to get some great comic guests, but not so big that it ever seemed to attract actors and actresses (until this year), so it was always just about comics and I liked that. I don't begrudge the film industry for "taking over" the con, but all I'm interested in doing is meeting comic book creators I like and finding deals on trades that I want, so San Diego seems like a bit much for me.
June 10, 2013 9:12 pm I remember really liking that Titans run, District X, and that Punisher run. I enjoyed Identity Crisis quite a bit too. Whenever I see his work now, I'm always surprised at how good Michael Turner was, definitely sad that he passed away so young. I hear a lot of people complaining about Chuck Austen (I haven't read much of his stuff, so I'm not prepared to make a judgement either way just yet), but MAN that guy has written EVERYTHING!
June 4, 2013 12:52 pm Any of these would be awesome. Add me to the list of folks who want to see Kirby's New Gods (or really any of his Fourth World stuff) get this treatment. I'd also love to see a Ditko Artist Edition of the Action Heroes line at Charleton and a Gene Colan Tomb of Dracula edition.
