    Two ways to take it.....

    I get the context thing. It's supposed to be ironically funny. But it's not funny to me, and this goes beyond personal taste.

    There is another way to take it, even with the given context: "Buy...

    Savage Avengers Annual Solicit

    The Savage Avengers Annual Solicit on Page 63 of the Marvels Previews August for October ends with this sentence, "Pre-order this or go to hell."

    I recognize the intended irony of the statement,...

    There were no comics shops, so when you went to the local Rexall you got what was ever on the comics rack. Avengers #80 First Red Wolf was there, so begged my sister for some change. I figured out...

    I loved this story when I first read it. And it exists because I can pull the books back out and read them again, and I love it just as much! Crisis didn't ruin anything, this happens in the future,...

    I actually believe the fact that DC keeps changing the "norm" is more of a problem that just picking something and sticking with it.

    What eternally dumbfounds me is that fans don't think about context, what was published, when it was published and how it affected the current market.

    Frank Miller's stock has gone down in some...

    The execution of any idea is huge! Good point. I have seen authors like Alan Moore take ideas that I originally thought were "dopey" and made them cool. I have seen what started as a great idea turn...

    I don't think that because they updated characters it was an admission that they screwed up. I actually think it was part of the plan all along. Go back and read the last Supergirl story in Superman....

    I see your point, and I can see how the situation would work if they were deceased. But there is another thing going on, for me, one of the most dramatic moments in Superman (vol2) #75 was the page...

    I accept that, but I was objecting to the phrase "it wasn't long before" when in reality.....it was quite 17 years of consistency with some minor changes along the way. It just wasn't the way the...

    First, the continuity was set up by a post Crisis team, yes team of which John Byrne was one of the important contributors, but not the only one, to be honest, my research suggests Dick Giordano had...

    I don't see the way Bendis is handling the character the same as the way you characterize it. My suggestion is to stop trying to "fix" anything. We have had nothing but a constant stream of reboots,...

    The poll looks like its swinging in your favor. I am with you, so at least you are not alone on that "hill".

    My reason? The dynamic you suggest is the reason, plus, it keeps Kal El human, and...

    Superman 233 (1971)

    Superman #233 was on the rack at the drug store I bought comics, so I bought it. I was 10 years old and it's funny how there are things that you remember vividly. This was one of those memories for...

    This is Aaron's pattern.

    I have stayed with Thor because I love the character and the art was good (not Ribic, he has trouble telling the story in my opinion).
    I will stay with Avengers because I love the characters, and...

    Hawkeye, Black Knight, Sersi, Photon, Finesse, Wasp(Janet Van Dyne), Blue Marvel and in some arcs, Thor and Dr. Strange.

    I would try to keep the story lines down to three issues arcs.

    If I were to nitpick, Lois called Clark "Baby" too much this issue.

    It's not the lineup. It's the writer. The last story arc was a shotgun blast of scenes that were poorly tied together. I think one of the things the writer should do is make sure the point of a scene...
