    I was disappointed to see John Layman and Jason Fabok leave this title despite the underwhelming send-off of Gothtopia; the unassuming tone of their work made it all too easy to overlook the...

    Ain't that the truth. He even lets creator-owned projects drift into limbo, such as Fell or the second volume of Desolation Jones. But Marvel has been smart about giving Ellis short runs that clear...

    I like the way that we meet the latest incarnation of Moon Knight in a limousine that appears to be modeled on David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis. And the tone is about the same. Declan Shalvey did some...

    You know, I'll stick up for Paul W.S. Anderson. He takes on the kind of projects that are never going to be taken seriously, even when the execution is basically good, and then approaches them with...

    I saw Pompeii today, preceded by the trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, and the differences jump out (so to speak) when you see the 3D effects. The trailer for Empire has the same stylized lighting...

    It seems like only yesterday that Bruce was dead and Dick was wearing his cape, so perhaps it's too soon to run the same plot again, even if it would give the title "Batman Eternal" an ironic edge....

    Why would they want to go back? The surprise identity of the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 was the funniest and ballsiest thing in that movie, and probably in any of Marvel's movies to date. It was a sign...

    I love the way that Dan Slott is pacing his finale like a screwball comedy, with endless callbacks and asides that tug the action in unexpected directions. Whether or not the remaining surprises turn...

    That is some solid C-List lore you're rocking. I recognized about half that many of those guys.

    The fact that there is no fixed standard for the arts does not make criticism worthless; that's why it's worth reading. We wouldn't need to keep writing about art if everyone agreed about what makes...

    Those might be startling numbers if both issues were part of the same series, crossovers can make for funny numbers. Completists might buy their regular title without touching the other, even if it...

    Seriously. The cartoonish figures might be a tough sell for the super-hero audience, but storytelling shows a lot of wit. The first two pages make nice use of elliptical transitions, with a fair...

    The idea that Stephen Wacker intruded on some kind of innocent pastoral sheepfold is totally absurd. These forums may not be designed as a place for personal attacks, but the average day around here...

    The last page surprised me. Up to that point it seemed like the book was playing it very safe; the lead character wavers between cultures while some of the supporting characters have a stronger...

    That figures. And it's only fitting that the latest round of complaints about Ramos would arrive at the same time as some of his best pages to date on Spider-Man. I admire the way that he has turned...

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the pleasant surprise of new pages from Marcos Martin. His rendition of Spidey mindscape is brief but yet again seems just pitch-perfect.

    Do you mean that the actual wording is similar or that the dramatic situation is roughly the same? The scenario of established heroes or authorities confronted with an unknown force of utopian...

    All-Star Western has been my favorite title of the New 52. The book has more than enough personality to compensate for those occasional issues that suffer from genre auto-pilot. And Moritat was an...

    No, they're not important. They preserved the numbering of a short-lived Image series from the 90s but retooled virtually everything.

    His wording offers a clue: "It's not a continuation of my mythology, it's not. It takes a turn left." The inclusion of vampires (and not the hypochondriac variety seen in Romero's Martin) changes the...

    The last few years of Amazing and Superior Spider-Man show affection for Spider-Man stories and (I think) for Spider-Man himself, but what's starting to irk me is this idea that the writer must first...

    An explicit retcon would mean acknowledging and revisiting a story that no one has seemed eager to touch. Even the writer has distanced himself from the story with a public explanation of the...

    I agree with many of the recommendations that have turned up in this thread, but let me put in a word for Prophet. Brandon Graham and his rotating team of artists have created an unpredictable and...

    Say it ain't so! Have you given it a second try lately? I know that many folks have a hard time getting past the many chapters of whaling lore and whale anatomy, and that others have a hard time with...
