    I think Slott's run has been a good mix of darker and lighter moments, but I'd have to say that it skews lighter, especially issues #648-700 of ASM. I'd agree that SSM has been darker, mostly due to...

    While I'm not a fan of the "party line" at Marvel, I don't think it's completely fair to describe them as being just as dour and depressing as DC. There are actually quite a few titles there that...

    As a kid who saw mostly white faces play the heroes (heck, play practically ALL the characters) on TV and movies, I would have loved, LOVED to see a hero or main character who shared my ethnicity. I...

    Am I the only one who is a little amused by the fact that they proposed Mahershala Ali, an African-American actor, to play an Irish Catholic character, but then turn around and say that Jesse Plemons...

    It's not to the degree as things were going on in the 90s, sure... but it's exploiting a similar speculator mentality. It creates an artificially high demand via manufactured rarity. I don't...

    Ah, modern day variant covers... it's nice to see the speculator mentality of the 90s is still alive and well.

    Good things I hope will come from this:

    1) Amazon-purchased comics will now use Guided View.

    2) Comixology will offer better prices -- Amazon routinely underprices them on digital collected...

    Whoa, wait.... what? Why is Batman Annual #1 going for over $20? I have it and I enjoyed the story, but I don't remember it being such a landmark issue that is should be selling for that high.

    I initially didn't like the new 52 suit either, but it grew on me a lot. That said, I think the best "modern revised" Superman costume is the one they used in Smallville season 11:

    Thanks for that reply. There are some other non-CBR forums that I read and they can vary on the level of how on-topic you have to be. I'm not so concerned that I'll "get in trouble" -- I just don't...

    Question about forum "etiquette"

    I tend peruse a lot of the forums here on CBR, but usually end up mostly reading this forum because most of the regular posters here tend to be a bit more thoughtful and intelligent in their...

    Used copies for under $10 maybe, but I prefer to get new if possible. That said I am eyeing a few auctions to see if I can score used copies.

    I also wish streaming versions of these movies were a...

    Ah, thanks for reminding me about the Disney connection. I didn't realize Disney charged so much for blu ray. I just went back to Amazon and price checked a bunch of Disney and Pixar blu ray...
  14. Why are prices for Marvel Studios blu rays so high?

    Has anyone noticed that prices for Marvel Studios movies in Blu Ray are relatively high, even for older movies? I checked several websites (Amazon, Best Buy, Overstock) and nothing was priced lower...

    I feel bad for the artist that has to draw the webbing on all those spider-costumes.

    I enjoy Scott Snyder's other work, but I think Superman Unchained is a bit of a miss -- at least in monthly comic form. I have a feeling it will read better in its complete form. The main problem...

    Big Waid fan here, and loving his stuff on Daredevil. However, I dropped Indestructible Hulk after the time travel arc. It started out with some promise, but just got too wacky for me right around...

    That's understood, but then by that logic there's no reason for any superhero to look muscular, since most of them are strong by virtue of their superpowers and not natural muscle strength. We don't...

    You have to consider the actor in the suit as well. Grant Gustin is pretty skinny looking, in a non-athletic kind of way. Even if the suit was more form-fitting, it would not be flattering at all. ...

    I think it was two-issue story by Gerry Conway and Alex Saviuk. Some crazy scientist builds a machine that steals energy from the Hulk and accidentally transfers it to Spider-Man. Spidey has a few...

    I don't necessarily mind if there's political content, so long as it feels like it's driving the story in a natural manner and doesn't feel forced or preachy. For a character like Oliver Queen, I...
