February 20, 2012 2:03 pm oh no, the comic book industry collapsed, theres no comics on Wednesday!
January 19, 2012 6:48 pm i stared at the Prophet page for 20mins without realizing I had been staring at a page for 20 mins. That shit was so goood
January 18, 2012 11:15 pm i'm loving these reviews lately of more indie books ive never heard of, its good to know that i could read comics all day for the rest of my life and still not get to all the good stuff out there
January 7, 2012 11:36 pm this is not the thing the comics industry needs, this is really embarrassing for marvel.
September 17, 2011 3:48 pm sometimes i just want to scream to the world: YOU DON"T HAVE TO BUY ALL THE COMICS!! JUST THE ONES YOU"LL LIKE!
June 16, 2011 11:55 am people act like the line-ups they announced are for a permanent on-going team, but i don't feel like they have given any indication to these creators being a fixed part of the title, just as it is with 50% of books out there for the big two. i think theyre saving norton for when they need somebody to save another persons ass when they can't meet the bottom line. i honestly think theyre using this reboot to test out new blood, searching for a couple diamond new creators, and hopefully getting some old creators back on there feet.
June 8, 2011 3:57 am Vertigo dissolving would be a major blow to the long term health of comics. Vertigo serves as a perfect bridge between indie comics Marvel/DC and traditional literture that gives substantial weight to the story content. It would be difficult for a new/different publisher to garner the quality of product and respect of the legcacy Vertigo has if the line ended.

P.S. when i say quality i'm talking about creatively. The printing has always left me wanting, especially the quality of the trades. 
March 28, 2011 9:41 pm Just wanted to take this chance to thank you for all your great work, and I also wanted to let you know that for every person out there who frets about continuity and accessibility there's a guy out there like my buddy who saw Secret Warriors 1 sitting in my room read it 5 times over, having never read a comic before. I gave him all my issues for his birthday cause he loved it so much, so i just wanted to thank you for proving to me any book can be somebody's first, and its quality that matters over anything else.  
March 15, 2011 11:49 am Book is SO MUCH pure unadulterated FUN! read it and pour over the pages for hours! Surprisingly adept storytelling for how busy the panels are too.
February 15, 2011 10:17 am @WeaklyRoll  Whenever i think of how little Superman's changed over the years, i just stop and think how the superman paralells have changed over the years to judge what he'd be like untampered with. Right now Superman would be a big old dick of a dick.
