    This is also where I was. Dropped after issue 3. Too many other things to occupy the time.

    Don't know. I think at one point a recap page meant taking away 1 page of story (?), but I don't believe that's been the case for a long time. I think this is why JMS' Spidey didn't do recaps.

    All publishers should have recap pages, like Marvel started decades ago.

    On a roll today haha...

    I don't get the point of opera, like as an entertainment medium.

    I once bought a ticket to an opera thinking it was a regular musical. So then I'm sitting there and...

    Tom King is an amazing writer.

    He's like Brad Meltzer in that he comes from the "heroes have feet of clay" school of writing, which for me works more often than not. Identity Crisis is fantastic...

    I have that same Sandman box set. Just finished the Death deluxe edition today. Pretty good.

    Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites- I'm a sucker for anthropomorphic stories like this and Wild's End, Mouse Guard, and Blacksad. Liked it a lot. 10/10

    I can't sit through those older war films. Ryan in this way serves as a demarcation between the old school war films and new ones where things are a lot grittier and thanks to technology and money...

    When it comes to WWII films, I prefer the Brad Pitt tankies film Fury over Saving Private Ryan and Inglorious Basterds. They're all good films, but I greatly enjoy the warts n all camaraderie of...

    I have the Massacre OHC and will be buying the Prologue omni. After that, with the Claremont/Lee omnis, I'm caught up all the way up to Bishop's arrival, and that's an era I don't care for really...

    For a lot of the X-men crossovers I just have the Milestones editions, as they cut out a lot of chaffe. For Inferno I could not in good conscience buy the latest omni as it just had sooooo much stuff...

    I read the first two issues and frankly stepped away. Not because it was bad, but because like with Gideon Falls this book seems to be full of characters that keep alluding to mysteries and never...

    Clearly several of these dates have shifted though. Are you able to provide an updated list perhaps?

    You need to have read House of X/Powers of X beforehand (available as OHC and tpb). There were a couple crossovers during the actual series (X of Swords, Hellfire Gala) and they're frankly skippable....

    Yes but if/when they do the 3rd omni, you'll buy that and be stuck with these 7 orphan issues. And by that time, this v2 will be OOP. I don't think they're ever going to finish the series in complete...
