April 15, 2013 12:08 pm This would explain the Superman in chains posters. I'm betting her turns himself over to the US Military after Zod threatens to destroy the Earth if "the fugitive" isn't returned.
April 4, 2013 10:31 pm He wasn't the first to illustrate Star Wars in comic form, but he was one of the first to bring it alive. I didn't appreciate his work as a kid, but I grew to enjoy it as an adult.
March 16, 2013 6:49 pm I am so sad to see this go, and GL, too. Bruce Timm and company got it the DCU right with JLU, and although it was sorely missed they jumped right back into the fray with more stories and animation in the form of World's Finest, GL, and YJ. But I"m sorry, I can't get down with this silly Teen Titans, Go! It was awful in the shorts - it can't possibly be anybody in an expanded form. Let's hope the yet to materialize Beware the Batman is satisfying.
January 17, 2013 12:21 pm There is an article on Wookipedia about the "Take the Tarkin' issues where Simonson and his co-horts wrote that the Empire built a second Death Star. When the submitted the script for those issues to Lucasfilm for approval, they would not approve them. Marvel surmised that a 2nd Death Star must feature in what would become ROTJ. They resubmitted as it as a giant laser gun called the Tarking. Lucasfilm approved. This implies that Marvel comics inadvertently stumbled on a plot line from ROTJ.
December 3, 2012 12:28 pm I love the Big Bang Theory! And one of the reasons is b/c the the things they geek out on are the same things I geek out on! It's authentic!. They remind me of me, and I can laugh at myself.
November 19, 2012 12:19 pm I am very price conscious, to the point where I've quit buying books again after being excited by the New 52 for about 6 months. Between the debt I've racked up, either from stupid choice or economic downfalls beyond my control, my every dollar is precious. The 4000 or so books I've accumlated since age 7 aren't going to be do me any good if I don't have a roof over my head. Thank God for sites like this - intellgent about comics. I come to hear to remember why I like them, and to see what's new. I can always read my old books, and I do, to enjoy the art of reading comics.
October 19, 2012 12:06 pm Dark Horse did this with almost of all it's very Star Wars titles. I didn't like it at first. I couldn't understand why Rogue Squadron:Insert Title Here had 4 issue arc's that re-started with issue #1 for every arc. But after a while it made sense. As an adult with a dwindling disposable income, I tend to read mini-series and collect trades more than the monthlies. Running comics like TV seasons just makes sense.
October 3, 2012 12:40 pm I registered to leave a comment, I was so moved. I had been reading comic books in one for or another since about age 5 (Archie, Superman, Uncle Scrooge) and then after age 7 with Marvel's Star Wars series. Perhaps in part b/c I didn't have a disposable income at age 7, I didn't read Star Wars consistently until I was 9, when I was allowed to get a mail in subscriptions. Although I remember several books prior to issues #51 and #52, it was those two issues that drew me to collecting. In these issues, the Empire has a new super laser called the Tarkin. Issue #51 our heroes must infiltrate the station, the next issue the battle inside the station, have a space battle, and eventually destroy. All wonderfully rendered by Walt Simsonson. But, I continued with just Star Wars, and many many animated heroes on TV, until age 13 when I discovered Secret Wars #3. All the cool Marvel heroes and villians in one place. And the HULK holds up a mountain!. I've been hooked on comic books ever since.
