    I dunno reading summaries is akin to reading an article of
    Said posted is banned from commenting in Arena threads. I made the mistake of replying before remembering.

    I stand corrected, again:

    If they keep that up I'll gladly spend 3.99 on each issue.

    It's a $2.99 title.

    Also, you're now being a proxy mouthpiece for someone barred from posting in here. It's a little weird.

    You should totally change your avatar while you do it.

    So just because I share an opinion with someone makes me a mouthpiece?

    I'm talking to Klinton. Quite obviously.

    Can we talk about the about the book again ? Instead of other posters.
    I miss S/D to but you have to respect the House Rules.

    How do you think arena will deal with not having the opportunity to do crossovers ?

    What saved academy from getting axed to sone where the tie in issues ( Fear itself, Spiderman) and guest appearance( Capitan America , Taskmaster)
    It even had two members on 2 different ongoing cartoons(Rerptil , White Tiger).
    And it still was not a big seller.
    How is Arena supposed to survive?

    I think it's unique enough to hold it's own. Not even Tigra and Pietro could keep me interested in Acad, but I'm actually enjoying this book.

    In all honesty, I'm super curious to know more about the new students and their connection (or lack thereof) to Brian and Betsy. That's the biggest draw for me, personally.

    Agreed. Arena as a book is instantly more compelling than the latter half of Academy, and as such doesn't need "saving". The Braddock Academy characters are some of the most interesting and intriguing teen characters to be introduced in the last decade, with Ryker as the cherry on top.

    People were worried that these would be cardboard cut-out throwaway fodder, but after just a couple of issues we're invested in them and they're already the story favourites of many readers and posters.

    EDIT: Except for a certain god-awful panel in that issue.

    Really? I didn't think so. Maybe because I found that villain to be insufferable. I think I also thought the book got really watered down after they added all those other kids. White Tiger was particularly annoying.

    The Acad issues for AvX were brilliant fun! Sadly, it was Emma who made them interesting. I enjoyed her in those books, not the regular cast.

    Don't even get me started on that awful Stiker panel.
