    Amazon has a history of acquiring companies like Zappo and Woot and Audible and then leaving them alone to run as they have already. I prefer the Comixology versions of comics to the Kindle versions...

    Accident Man was great, especially the early stories from Toxic! - They deserve kudos for finally getting The First Kingdom back in print as well.

    longtime SLG supporter. I have to admit that while I appreciate DRM free, it's simply easier to add a Slave Labor book to my Comixology cart than to go to a separate website, then download, then...

    welcome back - your column was one that I always made time for back in the day. I too have had a couple of times in my life where I simply stopped reading comics cold, only to drift back after a...

    I will begin caring about DC's "digital initiatives" when they come up with their own version of Marvel Unlimited. Give me access to READ your library - I don't necessarily want or need to OWN (or...

    one of the better short-run publishers over the years, and they understood comics on the web from the get-go - people forget that about CrossGen. if they just hadn't overshipped those anthology...

    Starlin came out of the fanzine world. he had created some characters on his own prior to working for Marvel (one of whom even resembled Drax a little). Have you ever heard of those characters? it's...

    Maybe it's my age and how long i've been reading comics, but those examples, to me, are relatively recent. there were decades of Thanos stories being done by Jim Starlin. Thanos stories not by Jim...

    why now? maybe because prior to this, almost all use of Thanos has included Starlin's participation, so that he was profiting (at least in wages) from the use of his creation. As far as I know,...

    Supernatural paves the way

    I realize that it's Deadman at the CW, but Supernatural has been pretty blunt in their depiction of an absent God, rebel angels, and the supernatural effects of the fight between heaven and hell. As...
  11. interesting choice

    this title was one of the last gasps right before Crossgen died, and I don't remember much about it, except that it had promise. If I remember correctly, it had almost nothing to do with the sigils...
  12. very surprised

    I did not expect to see these two titles brought back, since they were so late in the Crossgen timeline, especially KKBB. Route 666 was pretty much my favorite Crossgen title at the time, and I'm...

    misogyny

    just because you have characters acting misogynistic or a misogynistic society doesn't make the work itself misogynistic. those early volumes of Cerebus clearly show the male characters as WRONG in...

    I see someone else already pointed out that Chandler was the third (and last in the regular sequence) published in the Fiction Illustrated series. The first was published in January, with Chandler in...

    I remember the first version

    Back when Austen was mainly known for his porn comics (primarily "Strips," which should be reprinted by someone), he did a series called "Hardball" that was a porn comic about baseball players.

    digital is rental

    The comic publishers will get my digital business when a "digital sale" means that they've actually sold me a file, not just rental on a "cloud file" that they can revoke whenever they wish or that I...

    poor trade publishing

    There's an even bigger issue when it comes to trade publishing: they publish seemingly anything and everything, but don't act like a real publisher when something actually takes.

    I ignored the new...

    I would argue that the Grant Morrison Doom Patrol was an Invasion spinoff - yeah the book was already around, but the metagene bomb gave them the perfect way to write off the characters they didn't...

    this is a really big task. As mentioned by an earlier poster, he's got to fit the story around the current songs and big stunts. But then again, that's kind of like the old "Marvel-style" writing...

    Boom! still has to work with Disney on their current licenses - they're not going to say anything too negative or controversial. The fact that only the Pixar were pulled would seem to indicate that...

    Big Nate

    The Big Nate books by Lincoln Peirce are like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books in being a hybrid of comic and traditional prose book. But there's a stronger comics connection. "Big Nate" is an actual...

    This will be something like the fifth time I've bought those first few issues, but I don't care. I liked this series and stuck with it to the end (a satisfying conclusion too). I even bought the Fish...
  24. comic-movie

    the article indicates that the scripts were in play before the graphic novel and are "legally connected" to what became the comic. So Rosenberg would be connected to this legally, as he would be the...

    Given that Hollywood has taken great comics and made horrible movies from them, maybe they'll do the opposite with what was a horrible, horrible graphic novel. Men In Black was not that good as a...
