    April 30, 2012 7:57 pm I'm one of those "tradewaiters" and I have been dying for this to come out! I tend to read the first issue of a series digitally and then wait for the trade. The wait for this, Swamp Thing and Batman have been excruciating!
    April 6, 2012 8:16 pm I personally loved the new Infinite format. I have been enjoying digit comics for a while now, but it has always felt a little odd/forced to read something created for paper in digital. Not horrible mind you, just slightly "off". The Infinite format felt awesome! I especially liked how the panels background wouldn't change sometimes and the action just moved through it. I'm very excited to read more!
    March 28, 2012 11:47 pm This article hammers the nail right on the head. For me, I had felt like I was slowly starting to drown in the stacks of unread single issues piling up around my apartment. It had pretty much gotten to the point where I was just buying comics because that's what I had always done. One day I realized that this sense of "obligation" had completely killed my desire to read comics... not just the superhero stuff I was primarily bored with, but everything! Even books I really loved! So I did the most drastic thing I could see myself doing: I switched to trades. For me, this fixed almost all my problems. I no longer had weekly purchases to make, plus trades are a little cheaper (especially at the big "A"), so my finances thanked me as well as my floor space. Also, somehow, it seems easier to keep up on the release of trades from companies other than Marvel and DC, so those pesky superhero titles that were weighing me down were automatically cut out of the equation. Also, it's far more convenient to share a trade with a friend than to hand them a stack of issues. Bottom line: I'll never go back to issues (or read as many titles again). I do have an iPad, so I'll occasionally download a single issue to checkout a new series, but then I wait for the trade to actually read more if I liked it (aka Saga). I am a far happier comic book reader and I don't feel stressed about keeping up pace. Comics are fun again! Who knew? Now, if only iFanboy could get the comic shipping list to optionally sort/show only trades... :)
    November 4, 2011 10:10 pm These are awesome! I forgot to take a picture and send in my version of Rick Grimes. I was able to find an airsoft chrome .357 magnum with 6" barrel, looks just like Rick's. So much fun. :)
    September 26, 2011 11:21 pm When I picked up my copy of Hellblazer I immediately turn to my girlfriend and said "God... I freaking love these Hellblazer covers!" She was also impressed. :)
    April 19, 2011 1:08 am I say PLEASE keep the  top 5 community picks. I really enjoy hearing a little recap of what the most popular POW books from the week are. Like you said Josh, it doesn't take away from anything else in the show at all. I think it's been a great addition. 
    April 14, 2011 6:51 pm I will only be buying the 7 actual issues of Fear Itself. I quit buying tie in books (unless I happen to already be reading a title that then ties in) back after Civil War. I just couldn't keep up nor had the money. So I stopped. And you know what? It's been great. I actually enjoy events again! I get a nice story with a bunch of heroes and it doesn't break the bank.
    April 11, 2011 12:19 am The back page of the issue took me by surprise! A full size ad for iFanboy. Nice!
    April 9, 2011 1:07 am I just ran across this photo while browsing C2E2 coverage and I was like, "There's Ron!! ... and, oh yeah, Robert Kirkman." :)

    March 10, 2011 12:39 am I'll just say this: After 10 minutes of watching it on HBO, I decided to see what was on HGTV.
