    April 17, 2012 9:36 pm I agree that this show isn't for me, which is OK because there need to be shows out there geared toward kids -- that's how I got into Batman, Spider-Man and the X-Men during the 90s. What I will say is that my favorite part of this show are the "Amazing friends." It's great to see Luke Cage and Iron Fist up front and center, even if these versions are very different than the Heroes for Hire.

    August 9, 2011 12:46 pm No Power Man and Iron Fist? I would have considered them for the top spot...
    August 9, 2011 12:40 pm I was reading Marvels, another Kurt Busiek classic, the other day and thinking the same thing. It's such an interesting book to see what people in those worlds experience and just how that might affect a person, especially a journalist who puts themselves out there in the middle of the action.
    March 1, 2011 12:59 pm As a fan of the Fantastic Four, I've been on pins and needles over the last few months with the death and then the final issue of the series. But I'll admit, it's not often that this happens. While there are books I look forward to reading every month, by and large, I sometimes feel the pains of 'obligation' more than 'anticipation' as well. However, as my cash flow got a little tight I started to cut back and really, I think in buying less, I'm enjoying the experience a little more.

    I will put out the biggest killer of anticipation for me is waiting. When the final issue of Planetary came out, yeah, I was excited because I loved that book, but I had to wait, what, two years? With War Heroes, I don't even know that I care to read the new one, as much as I remember enjoying the series when it first came out. Even those books which haven't kept me waiting too long, like Young Avengers or Chew, I know that I want to check them out, but the wait has not really added to my anticipation level -- it's actually hurt it quite a bit. Perhaps I'm being a little cynical, and I can admit to that, but the wait just kills my desire most of the time.
    February 22, 2011 2:34 pm Every book of his is something special. Hopefully there is a truth to the rumors that he has something in the works.
    February 17, 2011 2:28 pm Even though he was mentioned, I think Mark Millar has had some great people work with him. Almost every up-and-coming artist has worked with him, and they only make each other better.

    Others that haven't been mentioned are Warren Ellis and Brian K. Vaughan. These guys have written some of my favorite books, but what I love is not just the many names they get to work with them, but how those different artists work with the writers. With Ellis and Vaughan having works that differ from the next to such a degree, they really have a knack for picking people who not only do fantastic work, but people that they can play off of, who really add something special to each product.

    I got really heavy into reading comics again during the height of Civil War, but since then I've been feeling a little underwhelmed -- espeically with the Heroic Age stuff which seemed like a bit of a step backward. It's disapointing when there is a team like the Secret Avengers staring some of my favorite characters (Steve Rogers, Beast, Moon Knight and War Machine on the same team?! Awesome) written by one of the best in the business isn't catching my attention.

     

    I will say that Chew and the Greg Ruka/JH Williams run on Detective had both been keeping my attention. I just wish there was more out there that was.
