    April 25, 2011 5:12 pm Five copies of Amazing Spider-Man #2?  There are 866 graded copies in the CGC census alone.  And at least a dozen on ebay right now.
    March 22, 2011 1:30 pm It is a crazy amount of money, but it is not out of line with what any 900 number would have cost at the time.

    I'm sure I would have gotten the crap kicked out of me if I'd been stupid enough to call it.
    February 18, 2011 1:44 pm One of the bigger reasons that they are using all the space at the back for previews is that comic pages have to be laid out and printed in multpiples of eight pages at a time. So the reduction in stories from 22 to 20 pages didn't actually shrink the physical book. They'd need to remove another six pages of ads to actually use less paper.

    These comics don't exactly track with the Zahn trilogy because they were developed independently at the same time. Shortly after the first six-issue series, they were retconned to take place in the same universe. Some contradictory plot points had to be explained later (like why Coruscant is abandoned in DE when it was intact in the first Zahn trilogy.)

    Both are consistent with the West End Games source material from the time, so it didn't take much twisting to get them to go together.

    March 29, 2010 2:38 pm Pretty much has everything to do with marketing. Does the artist want more money? Make the more famous person's name bigger. I've never heard of Michael Lark, although I love the art in that book. But I bought it only because I knew I'd like the writing. It's not about credit, it's about sales.
    January 8, 2010 8:03 am So was that a paid segment from drawerboxes or an actual review?  I think you mentioned that you paid for them, but it's tough to picture you trashing a sponsor if they don't work as advertised.
    January 4, 2010 2:26 pm From the image on previewsworld.com it looks like the cover won't resemble the comics of the era. That's disapointing.
    December 14, 2009 4:04 pm The Dec. 30 comic from DC is Blackest Night #6. It's listed on their web site.

    What does the name of a comic matter at all?  Superman is still about him, it's just taking a look at why he's important by showing how many people it takes to pick up his slack and how they learn to be like him.  If you don't like Robinson's story, that's fine, but what does it matter what the title or issue number is?  You'd have no real complaint if it was Metropolis #5 or something. You'd just drop it and move on. So basically you've fallen for their trick to get a few extra sales from people who just need to keep buying the same high-numbered comic.

     

    February 6, 2009 9:57 am But isn't Thor coming out soon with #600? I would assume that's the same kind of marketing ploy, suggesting some value to keeping the numbering going. Also, the new Justice League is a separate series, not a reboot with a new #1.
