    Got it, thanks. Yes, unclear if it's special issues only, since every issue seems to have that option?

    So, if they released something with like a chromium cover, that would be explicitly called...

    Yeah, I saw it was an extra $. I'm just asking what those are. Is it just a thicker cover?

    What are 'card stock variants'?

    As someone who mostly buys older comics on ebay, and new comics just digitally... I was wondering what the card stock variant covers are? I'm just looking at the month's solicitations for DC and that...

    Sorry, not sure if we are not supposed/allowed to respond here (feel free to remove the message if so!) but, I wanted to suggest to perhaps move the appreciation threads to their own sub-forum? It...

    I have not read Spider-man in a while.. I tried picking it up after the Peter Parker millionaire seasons, and it just seemed to me like it just went back to the old 60s and 70s plotlines - Peter...
  10. Where do you go to check for new enhanced comic releases?

    Hi there,

    I'm a sucker for things like chromium covers. However I never really know when they come out until they've been out already for a couple of months and scalpers have driven the prices...
  11. What was the Harry Matthews figure from 'The Demon' in the 90s?

    I've recently acquired the old Demon v2 series and, a bit over a dozen issues in, the letter columns start mentioning a 'Harry Matthews pillow/figure', gifted to one letter writer each month (similar...

    DC Boutique?

    Hey folks,

    Just wondering what these 'DC boutique' editions are?

    Like this one: ...

    Thanks. Yes, it looks that way indeed - I just read them and that's how they fit in, story wise. ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN 586, ▽52 in fact looks like it should be ▽3(2001), since that issue also seems...
  14. Anyone knows which comic was Superman 'triangle number' 51 in year 2000?

    I've been re-reading all post-Crisis Superman lately. I love the triangle number ideas they had running for a bunch of years, but I can't find the specific title that had triangle number 51 in the...

    That's debatable. The movie, TV series, insertion of Watchmen characters into DC's main continuity, with all the merchandising that's going to generate... I don't think anything else Moore may have...

    Why a hypocrite?

    That's a recent interview. When he wrote Swamp thing, Batman, Superman.. he was fairly young. You are a young comicbook writer, you take what you can get.

    I'm ambivalent about past stories by Tom King, but it's hard to condone in any way the constant F-U to Alan Moore and comicbook creators here.. Same as with Doomsday clock, I might read it out of...

    So what happened to WW? Not that familiar with the character.
    After reading crisis my understanding was.. earth 2 WW just vanished up in smoke (joined the gods, or whatever); earth 1 WW in theory...

    This is such a convoluted mess... I don't mind a good solid reboot, but just commit to it, don't to a half ass version of it then half-backpedal all the time. I can't understand who is who : )

    Thanks for the reply.

    So then, post Crisis would be a different earth 1 altogether then (whether you call it earth 1 or something else)? Simply because the pre-crisis earth 1 superman history is...
