Bio: Professional writer alter-ego. Life's ambition is to go to Comic-Con. If you don't know who Steven Moffat is... yeah, well, we probably won't get along.


Having been away from comics for a looooong time, I returned just after the release of the new 52. So…

June 18, 2012 11:57 pm I saved them all up and read them in one sitting this weekend, plus the relevant Wolvering and the X-Men issues. Loved it! Looking forward to this one. Yes some of the art could have been better, but the story was well-balanced between action and characters in my opinion.
May 23, 2012 1:10 am This is my absolute favorite book, primarily for the concepts. I agree there is a lot that can be done with the characters, but nearly every week this book opens up new questions, explores new possibilities, new powers, new dangers because of those powers... and all of it with some basis in science. We have a character who can see every possibility in the blink of an eye and who now can seemingly move freely through time and space and into new dimensions and is at the heart of it all, yeah a decent guy. Personally, I think of the Flash as the new Superman
May 23, 2012 12:45 am I was going to ask a question about this issue but by the time I got to the bottom of this page, I'd forgotten what it was now. I find Morrison's work spotty (at best) and derivative, but this gay insight is pretty interesting. And the art looks good so I'll give this a shot.
April 23, 2012 8:42 pm I'm dropping this one. If it does pick up, I'll grab the trade but I'm not holding my breath. It's just so sad.
April 19, 2012 10:50 pm Oh crap. That's what that meant. I read went back to that panel three times and still didn't get it. I blame it on a bit of sensory overload with this book, so much going on in the writing and art. Great review btw.
April 19, 2012 10:46 pm Excellent news. I've been holding back on reading AvX until I can sit with several all at once. I'll put this issue on top of the stack. Thanks.
April 9, 2012 9:54 pm Last month's was excellent. I've started picking it up because this is a slow week for me. Not much else to get me to the store.
March 22, 2012 12:59 am Great review! I just finished the book and came online to write my own review, but all I need to say now is "ditto."
March 19, 2012 11:38 pm Before lightsabers? I have a bad feeling about this...
March 16, 2012 11:31 pm My 12-year-old snapped it up today. So that's good enough for me.
