    And this is what creates the problem. Once you establish who the most powerful character is (Character X, for lack of a better term), any loss to another character on the list is jobbing, because...

    Early April is time for the annual anniversary sale at the big LCS in downtown Pittsburgh, so I headed down there last weekend armed with a fair amount of cash and a couple of hours to kill before...

    The last 10-12 issues are fairly expensive as well, as there were declining print runs due to decreased readership. I see a lot of these in the $7+ range, with the last half-dozen issues all going...

    Read 120 books this month, which was a huge jump up from the 70 in February. I am back within single digits on keeping pace to reach my goal of 1200 books read this year after starting the month...

    Nice pickups! I have #2 already and #1 is on my Want list (not terribly high up, mind you, but on it all the same), so I 'd be interested in knowing what you think of them after you get a chance to...

    IRT the underlined part, I thank you for being honest. I don't understand threads like "Marvel needs more XXXX characters", because that smacks of number-counting and tokenism. I'll disagree with...

    So, to go back to my previous question, is it his skin color that makes him worthy of resurrection?


    If serving as an Avenger is valid criteria, I will argue that Doctor Druid should be...

    I'll ask you "why", although I probably already know the answer.

    I read Nextwave by Warren Ellis at least once per year, but other than that, I can't think of any comics that I read over and over. Of course, that might be because I have a few thousand comics in...

    I'll respectfully disagree with you on the statement that it is worse today than it was back then.

    In the 80's (going back to the Inferno storyline that ran through Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor, and...

    I've been wrestling with asking this question for the past hour and have gone back and forth on it, but I am going to take the plunge, because I feel it is an important discussion to have.

    I'm sure it is, but those are the type of people my mother told me never to talk to.

    As far as actual incest, it has been intimated that Andrea & Andreas von Strucker had an inappropriate familial...

    Sorry to be blunt, but why bother? He was a barely-used character after his creation, he had few appearances between the late 1970s and his death in Civil War, and even if they brought him back,...

    Can anyone speak to the quality of the Iron Man HC Masterworks, volumes 4 - 7? I have nearly all of the series in floppies, going back to issue #40, but rather than try to hunt down (and pay top...

    I don't have the Magik mini, but I do have the New Mutants and X-Factor issues that lead into and tie into the event, and while it is not my usual practice to read out of order, particularly if I...

    Been on a reading binge so far this month, as I've already exceeded my entire February total and it's only the middle of March. Main area of focus continues to be Uncanny X-Men; I just finished the...

    They had me at "Warren Ellis writing", so having Shalvey on art is just a bonus, although I did request the Sienkiewicz variant at the LCS the day it was announced.
