    As a 30-something, I'm used to thinking of myself as one of the callow youths on the Classics board. Now, I know how I'm one of the old fogeys. A couple of months ago I was marveling to myself that...

    I have the whole Byrne run. I enjoy it a lot (although the inking for some of the later issues of the run is not as good). Because the characters weren't firmly established icons, there's a sense...

    Skipping over the rescue itself was certainly intentional. Waid and Samnee start with Matt Murdock, consulting detective (very much in the spirit of Sherlock Holmes). Then, they literally cut to the...

    The Trial of Barry Allen was the storyline going on when I first got into comics. I had a couple of issues which I enjoyed, so I decided to pick up the Showcase Presents volume of the run when it...

    I agree. I'm still reading Essential Daredevil vol. 6. I recently finished the Jester arc. I think the pre-Miller DD gets a bad rap. I read the previous five Essentials and find most of it to be...

    Yup, you remember correctly. The boyfriend was Franky. And yes, the art team of Bob Brown and Klaus Janson is awesome. They were the team at the start of this Essential volume (#126). I think they...

    I'd guess it's just the Wolverine/Sabretooth cover and their brief confrontation in the Marauders vs. X-Men battle. The reveal of their past connection was rolled out pretty slowly, so I think any...

    I actually didn't know it until I looked it up today. It's volume 7 and 8 of the Marvel Masterworks. It looks like it has more of guest appearances than the Essential TPB does. For instance, the MMW...

    Yes, it is. In fact, it appears that the whole run is cheaper softcover MMWs. I got most of it in hardcover before there was a softcover version of the MMW line. In fact, there are even a couple MMW...
