    I had posted in the past about an overview/review of the John Byrne Fantastic Four volume 1 and finally finished up a similar look at volume 2.

    Nutshell: The content and...

    I have #40 and it is a similar thiner/slicker paper. As you pointed out, the paper went to a notably thicker version so thereafter for a bit. I'd read the complete rundown of this history over the...

    The debate about the particular condition on that listing aside, I've always had great luck with Pondview in the past. My greatest score was their randomly listing a mint "Tomb of Dracula" v1 for...
  4. I'd agree that the ASM work is a bit more...

    I'd agree that the ASM work is a bit more 'accessible,' perhaps by virtue of the Marvel style having been better defined by that later point of time. The tone and concept is also generally lighter...

    I've had various positive remarks to make about the John Byrne "Fantastic Four" run in the past and finally sat down to do an arc-by-arc look at the story material in the first omnibus volume:

    I'd spent a couple of decades building up the idea of a 'Neal Adam-drawn space epic' in my mind, so it didn't quite live up to what I had in my head when I read the masterworks. The space battle...
  7. It's not 'mature readers' like Watchmen was... it...

    It's not 'mature readers' like Watchmen was... it was released under the comics code, so not nudity/swearing. Granted, it has a little darker thematic edge to it, in terms of the conflicts within...

    I like that IDW had made slight variations to give each printing a uniqueness... it has been a nice bonus for those of us who bought the books when the program first started. I remember when the...

    All three are great works... what a fantastic collection.
  10. My main concern with re-using the factoring...

    My main concern with re-using the factoring packaging would be the long-term effects. Much like how 'bagged' comics back in the day weren't made to keep the bag on them (under heat/humidity they can...

    I wrote a few quick paragraphs on it a while back, having enjoyed it. There were some interesting ideas at play for sure... it isn't as sophisticated as "Watchmen" but onecan tell that it was a...

    I'm optimistic that Marvel will eventually sort things out with the Fu Manchu license in order to get "Master of Kung-Fu" reprinted, but who knows when that'll be. There doesn't seem to be the...

    I mentioned a while back that I felt like the new matte finish scuffed/left marks easily, although there wasn't much opinion on it at the time. I fond that I could somewhat 'buff out' the marks with...

    After reading "Lives," I was eager for what came next. However, I've since read the material and much of it ended up being a letdown. In particular, the 19 issues that Brubaker did with the latest...

    Veterans of the great Amazon glitch of 2010 would recall that most of us received $25 vouchers as 'sorry' prizes. Some lucky folks did receive items, but those seemed to be the few who got in early...

    A quick followup to an issue that I'd had with one of the Marvel GI Joe Collections (from their 'limited' line)... the exchanged copy arrived today and was in perfect condition. Customer service was...

    The sales have been documented to be on a general downward track for quite some time, with the books only selling around 1000 copies of the variant versions (and presumably a similar amount of the...

    Given that we're entering Halloween week, I spent some time doing a lengthy write-up on the "Tomb of Dracula" Omnibus volume 1.

    There was some recent discussion on the...

    This was an sensational enough question that I Googled a bit and didn't see any mentions. Sounds to me like a wishful fanboy rumor making the rounds.

    >> 1.) In lieu of something like a Silver Age Dr. Strange Omnibus: which 1 or 2 Marvel Masterworks volumes would you recommend?

    We'll probably get a Silver Age Nick Fury/SHIELD omnibus at some...

    Did anyone ever look into the page counts for a complete volume?

    This would have been an ideal candidate for a slipcased all-at-once release like the Stephen King books.
  22. A lot of the seemingly unconnected pieces in the...

    A lot of the seemingly unconnected pieces in the 580s will get sorted out in the second volume. You make a good point about the overwhelming number of characters, as that adds to a steep hill of...

    At the risk of derailing the topic, I'll suggest that I'd rather read digital in color on an iPad than go with an essential. In order to avoid stuffing my home wall-to-wall with books, I've...

    I agree that the Gaiman was not as good.. so far. I wrote a lengthy article on Miracleman last spring ( http://bit.ly/15Slx1w ) and found the Gaiman issues to be a bit of a letdown. That said, I...
  25. I've been working on a lengthy article on volume...

    I've been working on a lengthy article on volume 1 that should be ready next week (just before Halloween... of course). The short answer is that it was surprisingly ahead of its time. It doesn't...
