There were probably hundreds of clues, but I never guessed that X was Tamox and Xamot. Perhaps that is because…

This was an immensely enjoyable issue and not simply as an example of comic book storytelling. The story tells a…

September 2, 2013 1:34 pm If I may suggest, a quick tweet would be cool. Would love to pick up the POTW a couple days before the show comes out if it looks interesting. That said, with you trying to shed burdens, I don't want to create one. So I'll understand if you don't want o o th and need to wait for show to come out.
September 2, 2013 12:07 am Thanks for te great site. I'm pleased to see the podcast continue. That remains my favorite part. If you don't write a pick of the week review, do we have to wait until Sunday when the podcast comes out to hear what was the pick?
September 26, 2012 11:03 am The Escapists. I would put it at the top of the list. :-)
May 2, 2012 5:29 pm This is a first isn’t it? I know there have been back-to-back issues of a comic selected, but never in back-to-back weeks, correct?
March 28, 2012 9:28 pm Is there another industry that works this way? Where the customer is to blame for not ordering the product in advance? Crazy making. So glad I’m 100% digital now.
January 19, 2012 11:03 am One of these days I’d like to know what Alan Moore likes. :-)
November 10, 2011 3:29 pm Marvel seems to be quietly moving to day and date digital. The new X-Men books, top-selling and important books, are all day and date. Amazing and Avenging Spider-man are as well. I haven't run the numbers, but it seems like a high percentage of the new titles from Marvel have been day and date digital since DC made the switch.
September 26, 2011 12:31 pm I’m going entirely digital comics now. I started thinking this way earlier this year when our second child was born. The addition of another person in the house made the burden on space more pressing. The idea of having a lot of comic available to me digitally instead of taking up a ton of space had tremendous appeal to me. DC going digital has reinforced my belief that this is the best way for me to get my books. That combined with the fact that I’m moving across town which will make it inconvenient to go to my favorite comic book store has caused me to decide now is the right time to make the switch. We’ll see how it goes. There are still some books that I love that aren’t day and date digital. But they will get there eventually and if I really miss them, I can find a way to get them. So like you, I feel that the digital age has finally come and I’m ecstatic.
August 16, 2011 2:27 am There are elements of the redesign I like and in particular I’m excited about the infrastructure improvements that have been done. Looks like the articles are now being served from Wordpress which should make the lives of authors easier. That said, my number one beef with the old site was the small type, tight leading, and poor readability. The redesign doesn’t address these problems and in some cases makes it worse (the home page has a lot of things competing for attention). As others have mentioned, using overflow:scroll on the middle column of the home page is a bit of a pain—especially on touch devices. All of this plus some other nits (the LOGIN TO REPLY and REPLY buttons seem too big to my eye and a tad distracting) compelled me to develop my first Userstyles.org stylesheet: http://userstyles.org/styles/52495/ifanboy-readability-responsive-web-design I built it in Chrome on a Mac. I took a peak at it in Firefox and it doesn’t work there yet, but it shouldn’t be too hard to fix. I don’t think userstyles are supported by IE, but even if they are, I’m not going to work on IE. If you’re interested in using this style, you’ll need to install the Google Chrome Stylish extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fjnbnpbmkenffdnngjfgmeleoegfcffe No guarantees your taste in aesthetics will match mine. I did this for myself primarily, but if others get utility out of it, awesome.
January 28, 2011 3:10 pm I guess the Marvel exclusive contract that Abnett and Lanning signed in 2008 is over now, eh? Did I miss news about that? Are they DC exclusive now or working for both companies?
