    Well, I've been a little confused as to what's going on with ol' web-head lately, just from browsing the forum, but I'll check out this new series when it begins. I was not so sure what to make of what I heard -- "dark" is usually not my cup of tea, and is really what led me to lose touch with things back in the late 80s -- but I'll give it a peek in the store and see if I'm able to follow it, and then we'll see! A small stroke a while back knocked my ability to process visual information down a little bit, which is why I tend to stick with square panels and such.

    While it may seem to come out of left field, a tablet displaying digital comics using 'panel view' might be of interest and help to you.

    'Panel view' is where it's at. Very cinematic.

    Thanks! I'll ask my daughter about that. (This is her account, too, by the way!) I'm always late to the party when it comes to new toys.

    It's still pretty rare to see the costume. Might as well be nonexistent, though I like Aja's design because it's less Ultimates uniform and more cool t-shirt and pants.

    I have to say, as somebody who remembers Hawkeye from the old "West Coast Avengers" days, his old mask probably would look silly to kids today. And the fact that he spends all his time in civvies in his book makes it feel like one of the fabulous indie books my daughter reads, very fresh and cutting-edge! We could use more books like that!

    His best costume is a brown suit and one shoe.

    It's not even up for discussion.

    His bare sock reminds him too much of that ninja.

    The pain is too fresh.

    It definitely adds to the tension when he's not looking superheroic. Just a dude with a bow.

    Very everyman.

    ~ Why has Hawkeye only got one shoe, mommy?

    ~ Because that ninja had to die.

    As soon as I read the article I knew the Wacker/Fan interactions here would be golden.

    Thank you all for the entertainment.

    Also, a big welcome to spaceglaciers! Always nice to see Rochester represented by someone other than me.

    Yeah but Stan was more fun IMO. Bill Mantlo even sent me a nice postcard once when I wrote a letter to SVTU.

    The Alpha art looks fine to me. It's a cartoony style with a bit of grain to the lines -- somewhere between Ramos and Allred -- but that sounds about right for a teen hero without the budding idealism of early Spidey. But then I've also seen a fair number of gripes about both Ramos and Allred around here lately, so maybe this board can't stand for cartoons to look cartoony.
