May 14, 2013 2:59 pm I picked up Strange Attractors last month at MOCCA Fest and loved it. It's probably Soule's best work so far. I can't believe it's only $20, because the presentation is really nice.
May 10, 2013 1:03 pm I feel like I should be cynical about the DC/He-Man crossover, but it actually sounds fun.
May 3, 2013 12:56 am I'm glad to see all the disappointment, because I thought I'd be in the minority, after all the praise this movie's been getting. A lot of the humor fell flat, the action was largely boring, and that twist was utter poop. And some people dare say this is better than Avengers.
April 21, 2013 2:46 pm I read The Dark Knight Strikes Again for the first time in preparation for this podcast. I tried to read it two times before, but I didn't get far, because I thought the art and coloring were hideous. But reading it this time, years later and as a more experienced comic reader, I absolutely loved it, and it's largely because of what Josh said: This book has personality. DC has been dull of late and this book is a display of how fun these characters can be. Miller stripped everything down to its essence here. The art, the coloring, I think it was all intentional. It took me a while to realize that not all the art and coloring were crappy. It seems more selective, depending on the scene in question. For the most part, the gritty, textured coloring of DKR was stripped down to mostly flatness here. Even the characters are stripped down to their pure essence, from Captain Marvel being a separate being from Billy Batson, Superman being stripped of his humanity and reaching Godhood with his daughter, Batman being pure, determined vengeance, Green Lantern being pure will incarnate. I loved this book, I had a grin on my face the entire way through, and I look forward to reading it again to glean more from it. It's definitely a better paced book than DKR, too, which again, has to do with stripping everything down to its basic elements and presenting it in as raw a fashion as possible. We are the 20%!
March 21, 2013 4:12 pm I'm excited for this. Astro City is one of the comics I've come to love thanks to iFanboy and I'm glad there's more coming.
March 21, 2013 11:26 am It would be nice if heading into the future more titles not distributed by Diamond are added to the pull list (print or digital), making them eligible for reviews, ratings, and POW. Leave it to BKV to break the mold.
March 19, 2013 12:53 pm Re: the release of the next installment, Vaughan says in the Afterword that it'll be in a month. Let's hope all ten issues are released as regularly.
March 19, 2013 12:52 pm Will the pull list option eventually be available for other digital first comics?
March 15, 2013 12:06 am Her was fine in The Man with the Iron Fists, and like in that movie, I doubt he'll be required to do much acting.
March 8, 2013 10:00 am I think this is a record for number of covers ever featured here.
