Bio: It all started when my mom had two comics waiting for me in the car when she picked me up from day care... they were Wolverine 49 and Spider-Man 17 ... since then I have spent incalculable amounts of money on piles of paper with words and pictures on them.



Wolverine and the X-Men has really catapulted me back into the X-Universe. I stayed away for years because I felt…

September 4, 2013 1:40 pm Thanks for all the hard work guys and gals. I ran across one of the podcasts when I was just getting back into comics and have basically gone to no other website since (why would you need to?). One time I emailed you guys about making an Inhumans: Where to start? and Josh answered back and told me maybe and then gave me some pretty high quality suggestions about where to start ... I read them, they were great. The personal touch and the obvious enthusiasm put into this were certainly tangible. Thanks again... that being said... Anyone know where else to go for comic info on the web???
November 1, 2012 7:42 pm Totally agree on Manhattan Projects. The art uniquely fits the story, the story is great, all one-shots that somehow are starting to fit together and the characters are fabulous. I find myself looking up the different scientists with each issue, so I'm getting an education in the process. Thanks Hickman!
October 11, 2012 8:51 am I do enjoy a well written JIm Gordon, yes sir.
September 12, 2012 10:34 am I know it's been said before, but I LOVE these covers!

September 1, 2012 9:45 am I have been reading this month to month and its been a bit confusing. If I have time I would like to go back and read in one sitting. I was confused by the ending but maybe if my reading isn't spread out over 9 months it will make more sense ... I hope.
September 1, 2012 9:40 am Agreed.
September 1, 2012 9:34 am Loved Stan's cameo! One of the better ones I thought. I can see why it got cut but great scenes anyway!
August 16, 2012 11:39 am Check out the interview with Allred about this issue on the "Don't Miss" Podcast ... really cool! Personally, I thought this was a great issue. Always like to see Allred's art and I thought the flashback was a nice aside to the story and also brought in the current conflict with Matt's dad (or what's left of him) and Foggy in a touching way. POTW for me. I'm trade-waiting Saga ;)
