    I can agree with pretty much everything MRP is saying here, but I snipped out the part about the "sandbox" analogy, because it works with my viewpoint. Maintaining a shared sandbox gives writers a...

    Well, that sounds awful. Please tell me that at least she wasn't frying it.

    Shoot me again! I love the smell of burnt feathers! And gunpowder! And cordite! I'm a fiddler crab! Why don't you shoot me, it's fiddler crab season!!

    But seriously, I have no animosity towards...

    I haven't seen many (if any) of the Chan movies (though I've enjoyed your reviews), so I don't know if I've ever seen Mantan Moreland in anything. That being said, I'd take him, sight unseen, over...

    Wait, what? Are you equating me with some sort of shill for Marvel? Considering it's was a couple of decades during which I bought basically no Marvel titles, and only recently reached a new high...

    Marvel? Honest? Perish the thought. Even if I did believe in their honesty, I wouldn't inflict nasty bananas on you. I just find it amusing how many people are throwing dirt on the corpse based on...

    During the funeral ceremony, the copy of the Essential that was lying in state sits up and exclaims, "I'm not dead yet!" Then the editor of Comic Shop News bashes it in the head and the ceremony...

    The sky is falling! The sky is falling!



    Could be either one. But either way, it seems the report of their demise may be greatly exagerated.

    Now that we've had several eulogies for the Essentials, did anyone go back and actually read the article? They added an update/retraction that Marvel says they were misquoted by Comic Shop News and...

    There's an update posted at the top of the article:

    UPDATE: Marvel’s David Gabriel gets in touch to tell us that Comic Shop News misquoted him, and that he never said that the Essentials program...

    If you read through the whole thread, you'll see as Dan says, it's not the "real" Archie you remember. These were "alternate versions" of the gang from Riverdale that grew up, got married (Archie...

    Technically, I don't pay cover price either. My LCS has a rewards program that gives $1 of in-store credit for every $10 spent (sometimes more depending on who's working). The only limitations are...

    Some is, some isn't. I'm not interested in excessively grim'n'gritty, but neither am I that interested in some of the way too goofy Silver Age stuff. Silver/Bronze age Marvel, like what is likely...

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand the reasoning here. If I didn't like it, I'd stop buying it and figure $16 was enough to spend on something I didn't like. If you complete the series for $36,...

    Because some of the new stuff is good? Because getting deals like this is exceptional and not the norm?

    I really enjoyed what little we got of the Futurians. I spent years looking for the next issue, which never came out (this was years before the internet and widespread information on series and...

    From what I've read, yes he's dying in both timelines. And the timelines will be somehow "merged" for the final issue.

    I'll try not to pounce, but while some elements from Tower were derivative, I think they brought elements of their own to the party that were fairly innovative for the time: a traitor in their midst...

    Apparently, according to this cover, there was a change in Deadman's back story I wasn't aware of. It appears instead of being shot, he died from being stretched on the rack.

    Giant space whale Xavier? My Little Pony Xavier? It seems like it would be a bad idea to invite a drug sniffing dog to the Marvel offices. Or maybe it's past time they did.
