    How was the Bendis Iron Man run, say, in comparison to his 616 “Spider-Man” run? That was a book I wanted to love based on my history with Ultimate Spider-Man, as well as the gorgeous art by Sara...

    Ultimates is a mixed bag with a lot going for it, especially visually. What's more, it is probably one of the most interesting Marvel books in tone and execution.

    This is entirely anecdotal, but does anyone else feel like Astonishing X-men is rarely talked about anymore?

    Probably not. It is, after all, one of the most praised books in the industry, but the...

    Is CGN the best/cheapest place to order Astonishing X-Men right now?
    I'm not seeing any trace of the book on IST and Amazon is charging $90.

    I'm feeling overwhelmed by collecting lately. It's an odd thing.

    I had slimmed down my collection to under 100 single issues and about 8 hardcovers, because as many books as there are to love, I...

    Sorry if I'm out of the loop, but do we know if IST is shipping new releases still? I planned on ordering the Astonishing X-Men hardcover today.

    I suffer from a disability known as "fatigue". If someone could just throw in a Spider-Man 2099 Omnibus vote...that'd be great. Thaaaanks.

    Is there a nuanced answer to the question of why Marvel doesn't reprint these books immediately after they sell out? Why wait years?

    If y’all were to choose one event book from the big 2 that released within within the last decade, what would it be?

    Without too much thought, Infinity by Hickman comes to mind. Despite the flimsy...

    I'm currently reading through the Bendis Daredevil Omnibus and it's my first time reading this story in nearly a decade.

    It absolutely floored me back in 2012, but I've found it a bit of a slog to...

    Question for myself and anyone like me:

    Why haven't we bought The Killing Joke Absolute Edition? It's an absolute steal at its current price. Shelf space? Love of expensive dining? I can't say.

    The more time that goes by, the more I appreciate Absolute: Batman Incorporated. It's one of my favorite books.
    Burnham's art, the colors, more blisteringly cool Morrison concepts and dialogue.

    Todd McFarlane still has some of the very best Marvel covers under his belt, IMO. To the point, I bet even the collected department is aware of demand.

    Yep! Can't believe it's been almost a decade since I first read it. It was one of my favorite runs back then, but it has been so long since I've ready it, due to the slow-burn style of storytelling...

    What do y'all think of Absolute V for Vendetta?

    I love the story, but would you say the art benefits from being enlarged or is deluxe hardcover just a good an option?

    They've gotten unbearably slow. Takes me over two weeks to get my books now.

    May go back to Cheapgraphicnovels. Although their customer service is bad, shipping is faster.

    Do you guys and girls order pretty much anything you can afford that slightly appeals to you or do you curate your collection?

    I'd say I curate heavily, and perhaps to a fault. I get rid of books...

    Do a YouTube search and you’ll see recent reviews discussing the issue. Many copies appear to be fine, but apparently there are some binding issues out there.

    It's hard for me to rank the 60's among the others. It deserves the #1 spot, of course. Everything else is just striving to live up to it's legacy. That said, it's probably the last one I'd pick up...
