I'm not reading a single DC book right now (I gave it a shot a few months ago again and petered out). But maybe we can give this another shot together when they rebirth. I'll probably look at most...

In case any of you guys are wondering, I loved Secret Wars #2. It's this massive love letter for everything outlandish and BIG about the MU. It's amazing that in less than ten years we went from the...

In this case, it was actually a pop culture reference. It's one thing for Surfer to show off his love of Earth by using a three stooges attack, even with the Nyuk, Nyuk. That was sort of charming,...

I didn't get one up this week (we're prepping for the baby's 2nd birthday party) but I'll chip in here. I think I'll let you do them from here on in instead of stealing a good job you're doing. I'll...

I did make it through a few more comics.

Secret Avengers 4: This is sort of a tale of two comics as the MODOK bits feel sort of disjointed with everything else. It's fun but past some of the...

I missed that She-Hulk came out. Soule's been great on the book. I'll have to double back and get it later, bad fill in art or not.

Quick thoughts for the week of 6/11

I feel like I'm stepping on Matches toes a bit with this, but man, if you're reading this, post your own weekly comics thing for Marvel or whatever else if you want to. I can't promise to do one of...

Moon Knight is a tricky case. He's enough like Batman that you wonder how Marvel might want to market him outside of comics. If they're committed to this take, could it be a sort of Wave 2 of the...

I don't think there's any shame in that. I know when I was younger it was very important to me. As a 17 year old, around 15 years ago, I'd be vehement about anime being better than most western TV...

The rebooted Bru run is sort of weird to me. I get that it was kind of time to reexamine the madbomb Kirby era of Cap and build off of that, but if Remender's Kirby-tastic run was coming, you think...

I'll be honest. I get my Cap stories a little confused, but I thought that this was playing on some thing that was brought up during the later Brubaker run where whenever he was having doubts about...

Day in the Life is so iconic and this wasn't quite so, but it still was a good "Take a breather" issue. I feel like, given the way comics were paced, the Titans were so much more established than...

Quick Thoughts for the Week of 6/4

Part of the reason why I'm not so active now is that I have a big backlog and it takes me a while to get to everything. I'm MOSTLY caught up right now so I'm going to shoot out a few quick thoughts...

I think some people just want a shared universe. And they want good comics WITHIN that universe, but good comics for the sake of good comics doesn't do it for them because it doesn't tap into the...

Frankly, I think that we'd have to find a new central focus for the board, because there just aren't enough of the people that this place catered to even reading DC anymore. There are places on the...

I wouldn't go that far. I'm pretty neutral on the guy but my gut is that this will be bad for retailers in the same way Levitz going was bad for creators.

The audience is just so split. You can't please even a third of them at this point and it's not the sort of book that can exist without them.

I have really fond memories of the old DeFalco bullpen bulletins comic strips, and he's someone with a good sense of things. I think in some ways he's almost an heir to Mort Weisinger.

But frankly,...

I'm glad this show got good. I felt like a jerk being so positive about it when it was announced.

So far, Venom feels a little bit like Jack Flagg did in the DnA Guardians run. The slackjawed human who gets to be out in space. I'm not sure it totally syncs with what we'd seen him like in his own...

Original Sin, especially, feels like its tie ins are going to be stand-alone. They're more of a shared theme than a shared event, it seems, something like a 0 or -1 issue month or a Villains month.
