Name: C.J. Sloan

Bio: Civil Engineer.  I do my (fairly) boring day job so that I can collect all the comics I want, play all the videos games I can, and generally just be a big nerd. My biggest hobby is modifying and racing my sports sedan (2004 Cadillac CTS-V), which is a super-expensive black hole for my discretionary income, but I love it anyway. I love a wide variety of comics, but recently I read mostly DC stuff (about 30 New52 books), but my first love was Image/Wildstorm comics.  To this day some of my favorite characters date back to the glory days of Wildstorm (Grifter, Wildcats, Stormwatch, Backlash, Deathblow, etc.).That's everything you need to know about me, for now.

    September 14, 2011 12:07 pm I look at this comment and I just hate everything about you.
    September 13, 2011 5:45 pm I don't love the fact that the writer has some definite reservations about whether CAFU will be able to stay on schedule past issue 4-5. I would just hate for a fill-in artist, or a new one altogether, to get put on the book and have some of the creative synergy go away right when it's getting started. I'm going to stay positive that we'll have a nice, long, stable run of this title.
    August 11, 2011 6:44 pm @ericmci:  I think MG was trying to be funny, but the reference was a little obscure and a litte off.  Dr. Fate's helmet is inhabited by a spirit called NABU.  So I guess CAFU is kinda like NABU...

    And if he really doesn't know who Grifter is, I feel sorry for him, because he has missed out on a little of great Wildstorm stories then. 
    August 10, 2011 11:41 am I agree completely with Crucio's post above.  That is where the character currently stands in the grand scheme of things.

    I hope he gets much more popular. 
    August 9, 2011 5:53 pm @froggulper:  Do you understand that Exclusive means that iFanboy was able to beat every other comic book website out there to the chase an reveal this cover FIRST.  I, for one, really like it, but even if I didn't, it is cool to see any news items here first.  It could be a picture of Grant Morrison's last bowel movement, but as long is it is exclusive, iFanboy and its followers win!

    Also, I love how you are SO sure this book is going to be the least popular new DC title.  I would really like to hear your reasoning behind that statement, or possibly be let in on your all-seeing, all-knowing, magical insight that allows you to pick sales winners before they are released.

    I think this title has a good chance because a huge majority of the DC readers probably don't know the character, so they will be starting from scratch, but if the story is great and the art looks pretty, word of mouth with allow this book to gain a foothold in the new DC. 
    August 9, 2011 1:36 pm Nice...and getting very, very stoked for this!!!
    July 25, 2011 12:26 pm Very cool that you stopped by Nathan.  I look forward to experiencing your storytelling for the first time, on my favorite character...btw, no pressure, lol!

    It sounds like you are really taking the character and world of Grifter seriously, which is great.  He has always been kindof a "go to" badass character that a lot of writers actually did justice to in the old Wildstorm stories.  Here's hoping that he gets to that level in the new DCU.
    July 14, 2011 1:50 pm This is so awesome.  Grifter is my favorite anti-hero, and my life had an empty feeling when there was no chance for monthly comic book appearances from this badass character.

    Man, I really hope this series takes off and we get years of a GRIFTER ongoing!!!

    Ron, it is also great that you really happen to love Grifter, because you are able to get the word out and drum up excitement for the book like no other.  Kudos. 
    November 19, 2010 2:34 pm Wow!  Reis's artwork is looking extra slick these days!

    Thanks, you two, for backing me up.  I know my comments came on kinda strong,  (tact has never been my strong-suit), but I get a really bad (and sad) vibe when I read some of the garbage that the modern-day pirates are posting.  Its just like people deciding not to stop at stop signs or signals, deciding not to pay their income taxes, taking video of people dying in the street rather than lift a finger to help them, etc.  When we, as a society, get to a point where the majority of the people don't follow the rules, then we will have a complete breakdown of society (Walking Dead-style, but without the zombies...hopefully).  This piracy thing is just a harbinger of what is to come.

    @wally - I totally agree with your take on digital pirates (fake revolutionaries - right on!) thinking they are somehow entitled and justified in their actions, "because everyone else is doin' it..."
