    Sorry for the delay. As far as I can tell, restrictions on the number of links isn't something we've set vBulletin to automatically enforce. Rules regarding the number of links are purely forum...

    It's hard to examine skill in a vacuum, especially when so many top Marvel martial artists have enhancements of one sort or another. The super-soldier serum, the heart-shaped herb, various chi...

    Honestly, as someone who only ever encountered this series in TPB form, I wasn't even aware it'd had a cover gimmick.

    Hi, I'm your new moderator.

    Hi folks,

    thwhtGuardian, after moderating this forum well for several years, has decided to step down. I'll be his replacement. This forum is running pretty smoothly, and I don't see the need to...

    The "Ultimate" line is a separate universe, dating back to 1999/2000. It was originally a place to do modern refreshes of Marvel comics by top talent without forty years of backstory. Now, with...

    With Serpents of Venice coming out in a week or two, I've been bingeing on Christopher Moore. The Bloodsucking Fiends sort-of-a-trilogy, Dirty Job, Coyote Blue, and Fool.

    If you need an in-story reason for the various contrivances and coincidences of the Marvel Universe, blaming everything on Franklin works as well as anything else.

    That said, creating elaborate...

    I liked Crooked Little Vein, but it often felt like a slightly episodic catalog of his usual preoccupations and it was narrated in a very familiar voice. In a lot of ways, it's a prose extension of...

    The first few Atticus Kodiac books are decent enough, for action thrillers. They become a little more interesting when he starts to focus on the supporting cast, but they're never really more than...

    I thought it was gorgeous, but it didn't really hook me. I don't have an idea of what the book's about, beyond Danny himself.

    Given 451's track record, I wouldn't take anything he said at face value.

    I'd say Arno is at least as smart as Tony, but we'll have to wait and see where it goes from here.

    Or they don't trust American audiences to recognize the post-USSR acronyms.

    The implication seems to be that he's going to be cycling through several different costumes. Although I could be wrong about that.

    There're already two wikis for all the connections and allusions (Coppermind and Stormlight Archive Wiki), if that's your thing. I wouldn't search them out until you're finished with Words, though. ...

    It's pretty blatant, so that bare minimum should be enough to clue you in.

    There's one tiny thing you might miss, although I think it was from Way of Kings rather than Words of Radiance. Perfect...

    I thought Words of Radiance had some excellent action. Sanderson ability to land the big moments remains strong enough to compensate for some of his more irritating tendencies.

    I actually don't think we'll be getting a third Marvel NOW! wave. Not so much that they'll stop doing it, just that they'll name it something else.

    You take a picture of the page with your phone, and you get bonus content. Sketches, interviews, character profiles, etc. It's nothing terribly significant, most of the...

    Cap's origin has been tweaked a few times by retcon in recent years. Protocide, Ice, The Truth, The Winter Soldier . . . but none of it really alters the fundamentals. Well, maybe Ice does, but I...

    I got a big chunk of Kindle credit from the Amazon antitrust settlement, so I picked up a bunch of books. Mostly stuff I'd read before that I wanted in electronic format, but some new stuff.
