    and once again, it's time for me to move on from CBR. if the repressed individuals here apparently agree with statements and mindsets like this, I have no desire to associate with you in any...
  5. McFarlane, Conway, and Wein "Superhero comics are not for women"

    It wasn't possible for me to have less of an opinion about McFarlane as a person, but Wein and Conway's shocking lack of self-awareness is disappointing, to say the least.

    so, you'd rather read over and over about pretenders to the throne who (by your own admission) don't measure up, versus the actual original Goblin that is the only one besides Kingsley that doesn't...

    why does credibility matter?



    petulant child struggling to live up to his abusive father's legacy has just as much potential to get played out, if not more so. it's only because it didn't, and...

    Slott does a very good job of making people speculate that any twist is not the most obvious answer, and then giving us the most obvious answer. I'd be surprised if it was anyone other than Norman....
