    This is a goofy little diversion from the book’s main story, and as such it works very well. There’s a…

    February 5, 2013 8:23 am Wow, I'm surprised at the number of very serious, and even irate, responses to what I read as a clever and somewhat tongue-in-check article. Anyway, with regard to all the goings on at DC, I'm reminded of the old adage that one should never ascribe to conspiracy what can more easily be ascribed to incompetence. In DC's case, I suspect the latter.
    February 1, 2013 7:03 am I agree with Fraction, I love what he's doing with Hawkeye, and I understand the reasons why the comics business is the way it is. But let's face it: as long as the only way for most people to get comics is by crawling into some dark nerd hole and forking over 3 or 4 dollars for 20 pages of story, you're not going to sell very many of them no matter what you put between the covers.
    July 4, 2012 8:03 am You are not the only one. It's very polished and professional with terrific art, but the story seems more and more cliched to me each issue. The last one particularly so. I've read or heard that "why didn't you tell me about" sequence too many times before. I wonder if this was written under a pseudonym if it would be getting the same reaction from the iFanboy community?
    March 21, 2012 9:03 am @ScorpianMasada: Thanks for posting this. The wild "WTF" swings in characterization really took me out of the show at times this season and I'm glad I'm not the only one. That scene with Lori telling Rick how he needed to kill Shane seemed totally out of left field and I didn't understand Dale's sudden and violent antipathy toward Shane either. I thought they were doing a good job of growing Daryl early, but then he was just all over the place. On the plus side, I did enjoy seeing Andrea go from suicidal to bad ass and in general I thought Herschel's character transformation was believable. His "whatever" attitude about Randall was an off key moment, but then I thought that whole sub-plot was contrived and read silly to me at times. Of course, it's still a great show and I look forward to next season, but I don't agree with Conor that this season was superior to the first one.

    Lots of people talk about how the distribution system is broken, and the market needs to expand, and obviously that's all true. But even if you could somehow magically drop the price point and make comics available to the general public in drug stores or as digital downloads or whatever, still you have to have content that appeals beyond the "fanbase" or it's pointless.  People will just pick up or download an issue and say "WTF?" and they won't come back.
