    December 31, 2012 2:37 pm Conor & Josh: not that it sounds like you're particularly looking for new podcasts, but I have one that is right up your alley: the Pritzker Military Library Podcast (http://www.pritzkermilitarylibrary.org/Home/Podcasts.aspx) Tons of great content from authors and veterans. Really enjoyed the shows with the guys who wrote "We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young," Nathaniel Fick from "Generation Kill," James Megellas (504th PIR vet from WWII), and the Tuskegee Airmen.
    February 5, 2010 8:29 am Bendis did have Sentry rip someone in half before: Venom in New Avengers.  Just didn't take.  Great issue and great review!

    It's kind of funny that in the last two months we've had two WWII movies come out and both take a beating by the critics and have fairly average boxoffice takes (3, if you count the British film "The Boy in Striped Pajamas").  Personally, I thought both movies were great and the critics' were a little hypercritical.  We also have several three series coming out from WWII right now: Battlefields, Sgt. Rock, and Storming Paradise (I think, I haven't seen an issue lately).  And unfortunately, despite these all being quality series, none of them are selling that great either from what I can tell.  But the really cool thing is, out of these 3 movies and 3 comics, only one is about American troops in the ETO.  So, even if no one's reading them, at least some of the stories from other parts of WWII are getting out there.  Ennis has amazing skill to be able to pull stories from all over and make them convincing.  It would really be something to hear him talk about WWII since his research covers the entire length of the war and the entire globe as well.

    Great review and great book.  I really hope this one succeeds.  

    January 29, 2009 7:24 am Did anyone notice in the scene with Natasha and Sims that Natasha grows and shrinks about a foot in each panel?
    January 28, 2009 8:25 pm Great issue, but it was 22 pages of story.  Is $3.99 really going to be the new price point for New Avengers?  'Cause that's just depressing.
    March 20, 2008 10:07 pm Picked this up and I'm halfway through and I can tell I'm going to love it.  However, I'm a bit confused as to the order since I remember hearing that there are prose novels as well as spin-off series that all tie in.  Is there a definitive order to read the series in?
