    What is the word for "QFT times infinity"?

    When I started reading message boards, I was shocked at how much the opinions/reviews differed from real life. It's almost inverse. I expect this issue...

    Internet comicbook forums have become a place where this:

    "It wasn't what I expected"

    somehow equals this:

    "It wasn't good".

    Reading previews, scouring solicits, and dissecting every word...

    ...Thank you, I guess?

    I kept waiting for the deluge of hate, and am so glad it never came. I frequent the Marvel boards more than the DC, mainly because I run into more negativity on the DC...

    I think it sounds great, but that was my secondary reaction upon reading this thread.

    My main reaction was joy at seeing a DC decision be so well received. I'm so glad to see positivity, to see...

    I sometimes wonder if Marvel would be better off by just writing off the part of their readership that is unwilling/unable to spend 3.99 on a book. It may be that they would be better off embracing...

    The Margurite Bennett one-shot was much better. She presented a deeper, more interesting take on the character. I'm choosing to ignore all of Nocenti's work on her and look at Bennett's version as...

    Hah... good stuff. It also brings to mind the "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" episode in which Frank is brought in to save a struggling business. Charlie has questions: "What do we make?" Frank:...

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. They are attempting to make more money from the book. I am not trying to sound snarky, but... of course they are.Why wouldn't they? Making money is their reason...

    That makes a lot of sense. I would speculate that Marvel treats these books, to an extent, as "see what sticks". By that I mean, when putting out lesser known or higher-risk titles, they may go into...

    That's a really good way of looking at it. To paraphrase a previous poster, continuity should serve the stories, but the stories should not serve continuity. I think it was Grant Morrison who said,...

    Completely agree with your "evolve or die" points. Luckily, I have a well-run shop in my neighborhood, owned by a hard-working and adventurous owner. He tries new things all the time... selling...

    And the people who own LCSs lose. A lot of people who own comic book shops don't make a lot of money. Some of them do it partly for the love of the medium. They are running a for-profit business, for...

    He's not basically a god; he's a member of one of the many ancient, powerful alien races populating the Marvel universe. Plus, gods can die in the Marvel universe. And why can't his eye store...

    I never thought about that... I guess it just provides more interesting stories if you can have an absolute leader calling the shots... "Because Black Bolt commands it!" is way more dramatic than...

    Green Arrow has been great since Lemire took over. The first trade is out now.

    I love the lengthy storyline... I think it was a strength of Remender's Uncanny X-Force that the whole thing can be read as individual arcs or one long, connected story. I think that may end up being...

    Interesting, one of the things I like about a new creative team is seeing what they keep and what they ditch. I think it keeps it interesting. I am a fan of changing and evolving characters,...
