    I'm really surprised that Marvel keeps so many of the omnibus out of print. I'd think some of the titles they have done would be evergreen sellers, but they don't really do a back list that way.

    Marvel may not be phasing the Essentials out, but a ton of them are long out of print. The one I can't find and hasn't been reprinted in the new cover scheme is Essential Thor Vol. 4. I don't...

    I think it always comes down do they make good comics off the continuity. If you pull it off, you can do all sorts of things based off of previous stories, but if you fail, it can be a total drag...

    New Mutants and the Invaders are two other titles I am surprised never ended up in Marvel Essentials. Those seem like ones that would have been more popular but they decided to just go color...

    I don't really mind the black and white on the Essentials. I got into them to be able to read so many of the series from the start, as so many of those comics were just not feasible when I was...
  6. One thing I like about the Marvel Essentials is...

    One thing I like about the Marvel Essentials is that it often prints in key appearances of character in other titles where stories tied in with the main title.

    I think they could have done a...

    You could have done almost all the Ka-Zar comics in two Essentials. Sgt. Fury would have been cool to have all in black and white and so would have Nick Fury Agent of Shield. There was a ton of...

    It seems at one point a while back there was talk that they might re-draw the Alan Moore issues with different artists from the original scripts. It's never happened, but I always thought that was...

    There is a bit of Marvel Universe logic that considering Tony Stark and Bruce Banner were both making weapons for the US Government that they could somewhat know each other. I'd think at some...

    I'm not so sure that DC Animations take on Batman for the past 20 years or so might really just be the best take on the character they ever did. It's the one place where they have been able to...

    I'm not so sure, the character has silver white hair so I was thinking it might be Silver St. Cloud, which would be a nod back to one of the other big Hugo Strange stories.

    I kind of tend to think the gadgets were fairly present from the start of the Batman series. The Bat Gyro, utility belt, Bat Boomerang and a recognizable Batmobile all show up really early in the...

    The Project Pegasus Saga in Marvel Two In One was one of the stories that really got me hooked on comics in general.

    I got to say he did tie up much of the dangling plot points in his F4 run, which I thought was pretty good. I don't know how much all of the work he did with the kids is going to hang around and...

    Al Williamson's artwork on the Empire Strikes Back adaptation is really beautiful. I absolutely loved that series as a kid and the Blade Runner adaptation Williamson did around the same time. ...

    I don't know, to me, I thought DC put out quite a few cool comics 1986-89. They tried a whole lot of different stuff, some of it laid the ground work for first Piranha Press then the Vertigo...

    This type of continuity is just a story puzzle. If you try to re-write it you better write a good story as it is awful when it is gotten wrong and a big waste of everyone's time. I think...

    I think part of Young All-Stars problems was just like the other Thomas series in that after the Crisis, they got really messed up and seemed to lose something that the earlier All Star Squadron and...

    I finished Slaine "Warrior's Dawn" yesterday. That was a good comic. Mike McMahon's artwork is a bit dirtier than some of his other comics. It has almost a woodcut look on some of the pages,...

    I think stating it up front when a title is going to skip a month or two is pretty smart business. I'd imagine having these months are pretty much just a reality of scheduling. It's worth the...

    The trades on many series are pretty easy to get. A good portion of Judge Dredd is in print now, in order with the Case Files. Almost all of the Strontium Dog, Slaine, Nemesis the Warlock and...

    There is a whole lot of competition out there. Long term it is hard to grow a comic line without a couple core titles to work around. I'd think for Dynamite when The Boys finished up, that was a...
