July 12, 2016 7:21 pm You guys should do a Reign of Fire Minute. I trust no one else with the task!
May 10, 2016 1:23 am Did either of you read Cinema Purgatorio or Renato Jones? I'm guessing both didn't make much of an impact if you did, but I'd still like to hear you guys' thoughts on them, regardless.
July 26, 2015 11:19 pm I think you could make a case for the Fraction/Aja Hawkeye being the defining work of this decade, although perhaps it's too early to tell. I don't know if it's the art or the writing specifically, but both Marvel and DC seem to want that type of book at the moment--that quirky, indie sensibility married to superhero comics.
August 27, 2013 12:42 am Well, considering his last collaboration with Bodenheim (Red Mass for Mars) was also beset by year-long delays, and Hickman's other Image books come out more or less on time, I'd have to say it's probably not his fault. As for SHIELD, both Hickman and Weaver kind of blew up on that series (which I don't believe was selling particularly well as of the last published issue), so it's easy to assume that Marvel wanted them on higher-profile projects before they finish up those last two issues. Hickman said in an interview a while back that it will be finished, they just have find the time in Weaver's schedule for him to draw it. Of course, Feel Better Now (the one-shot that was expanded to an OGN) was originally solicited for Sept 2011 and still has set release date - and Hickman's writing and drawing that. But I can't really fault the dude - he's a busy man these days!
May 18, 2013 3:11 am There's been way more than three people - pretty much all of the creative teams on the Green Lantern books were gone before they even started. There were also a whole bunch of "new" (to DC, at least) creators who just sort of quietly disappeared: Duane Swierczynski, Mike Costa, Ivan Brandon, etc. DC literally has no idea how to manage their talent, unless they're named Johns, Morrison, Snyder and Azzarello.

May 4, 2013 12:23 am I'd like for everyone complaining about the Mandarin's treatment in this film to name one memorable story featuring the character... The only one I can think of is Joe Casey's Enter the Mandarin, which was all right, but hardly a classic. I'm a pretty massive Iron Man fan - I loved the cartoon as a kid, and bought nearly every book featuring the character for a while there. But even though he's always been Iron Man's arch-nemesis, there's just not a whole lot to his character. His early appearances were rather racist, and everything creators have tried with him over the years hasn't really stuck.
