    Wow, the reviews of this have been very harsh.  Like many others I used to like everything Kevin Smith touched…

    September 4, 2013 8:35 am Just as the iFanboy team has scaled back, I have too. I used to visit regularly and be a member but I definitely understand changing priorities. I got into this site back in 2006 during a time when I was changing jobs and had a lot of stress. I listened to the podcasts going back many tears. I remember the Frapp'r map and heck I got into social media because of you guys promoting twitter, Facebook and others. Sorry I haven't been around as much. I am sad to see the site change but am happy for everyone to get some free time. I did the same as you.
    June 12, 2013 9:53 pm I am not sure why this message is so snarky. It might be good, it looks interesting. You just seem to be very negative on it.
    July 15, 2012 9:25 am The tone of this piece is a little harsh. Perhaps since Smallville went beyond just comic fans and is offered digitally it is being geared to try to bring in a new breed of fan who isn't as well versed in canon. So that would make Babs a better choice. I like it however they decide to do it and wouldn't bash them for it
    April 25, 2012 4:26 pm I may get blasted by everyone for this opinion but I struggle so much with the "creator's rights" arguments. If you want sole possession of your creations (or even joint) then write a contract that gives you that right. It will usually mean more risk for you though. If you do work for hire and agree to the terms you were hired under, then deal with it. I am not creative. I don't write and I don't draw. However, I work in IT and there are many systems I have written that have made many companies millions and millions of dollars but I have no claim to. I was paid to write that software and the company took it from there. I see no difference between that work and creating Superman or The Watchmen. And if I had created the same software on my own, without large capital behind me and corporate momentum it would have been worthless. The same is possibly true for Superman and Watchmen. Moore could have done Watchmen and self published or back then he could have gone to maybe Dark Horse (it was before Image) and maybe struck a deal to publish it with him retaining the rights. He didn't do that, he took the paycheck and created something that has become huge. However, there is a guy who retired a few years ago who created CTRL-ALT-DELETE as the sequences of keys to "soft-reboot" an IBM PC. That three fingered salute has been used for years and still is used today but he received nothing other than a paycheck. He doesn't get a penny every time someone uses it (if so Windows would have made him an incredibly rich man). Now, I love creators and I love these characters, but if you want the rights then take the risks. I respect Roberson's stand but I disagree with all the issues over the Superman rights and Before Watchmen.

    January 12, 2012 1:20 pm I have close to 20,000 comics in my basement but my new comics have all been digital for the last 3-4 months and I love it. I am a collector so I still spend money on older comics and so forth, but I love the quality and convenience. as for the price point, i wish they were a little cheaper but i love the lack of adds. it just works well for me.
    October 31, 2011 3:40 pm Just sounds like Marvel hedged too much. they didn't take the big risk and missed on the big reward. may not mean a lot in the long run, but their conservative approach didn't pay off as well as the brash approach DC did.

    July 28, 2011 3:35 pm @MikeFarley I think this meant on spinner racks.  Are you saying you bought is at a comic shop (direct market)? If so, I agree becauset was definitely sold there.  But I don't think you could get it on shelves at groceries, drug stores, book stores like Waldenbooks and others back in the day.

    WheelHands there were only 1,200 subscriptions but a great many more sold on the direct market through comic shops.
    June 6, 2011 4:20 pm I love "Downfall" great film and this clip is amazing.  I've seen it used for NCAA brackets and other catastrophic events.  However, this was the best and it kind of mimics my own feelings ...
