    Looks like Absolute Carnage is an unqualified success, sales-wise. Good on Marvel for that.

    Probably need at least one more month (probably two) to figure out Black Cat's level. If it's anywhere...

    I thought Clone Conspiracy pretty well sucked, and nothing about the Grim Hunt spoke to me, but Hunted pretty well rocked in large parts due to Billy and Kraven being alive.

    No, this way creates maximum incoherence in a WW shelf. Perez in omni, WML in tpb, Byrne in HC, gap, Jimenez omni, Rucka in tpb. Maybe they'll publish the Luke run in some sort of mini-sized format
  4. Help/Recommendations for Cosmic Marvel

    I'm a Marvel trade/omni reader, and when I jump into something, I jump kind of hard. I've ordered the GotG by Duggan omnibus, Thanos by Cates, and Infinity Wars by Duggan collections, and I've...

    It's not the nothing carries on from run to run - it's that only the parts the creator wants to play with move on. Snyder mostly ignored Damian, King uses him sparingly, but to good effect. Tomasi...

    I don't want to come off as overly antagonistic here, but what in the world makes you think anything from this run will necessarily be retained? Everything Morrison wrote un-did what came before it...

    I feel like the emotional and story plots were more aligned in the first quarter of the run (and I think it's a correct framing to discuss the emotional and plot arcs separately), and something like...

    The back half of King's run is full of issues like this - the individual issue is beautiful and has a specific point of view that's obviously part of the whole run, but they just KILL the momentum...

    It's decent. Like any year long story, it's a bit bloated in places. Continuity wise, it takes place during when the Zero Year issues were published. I forget the trade names, but after the one...

    The three issues prior to Fresh Blood are in the Batman: War Games collections. No luck on the other issues, though. It's been wildly frustrating - I had really high hopes they'd get all of it...

    Dark Days is probably required reading (it's insane it's not in the main collection) - at least the two issues called Dark Days (The Forge and The Casting). Snyder's run (especially Court of Owls...

    *I Am Suicide

    They're really great. The duology (Killing Moon and Shadowed Sun) is probably her weakest work and it's still pretty awesome. Her work is definitely not cookie cutter (swords and sorcery) fantasy -...

    I wonder if they couldn't have their cake and eat it to by using the legacy numbering concept. Basically, sub-number every 12-issue mini (number 1-12) as part of whatever comic (e.g. SSM 314-325,...

    I kind of doubt that BC rumor has anything to do with King's run. I'd say it's 50/50 on being a Snyder idea (spinning out of JL) or a Bendis/new Batman writer idea (that's part of the pitch to take...

    I base my reading order on writers - a tie-in by the event writer gets read interweaved with the main story. Same thing if I get the impression from interviews and other comments if the writer in...

    Glad you liked it. V2 is definitely a bit different from V1 so far (I'm reading it in floppies). It's hard to find a point of comparison for the run - it's not like Johns' run, or Green Lanterns by...

    No. I'd guess if we see one at all it'll be next spring - I wonder if the Savage Velocity took Waid v7's place (that is, if they hadn't done the Baron collection, they'd have done Waid v7 instead).

    It is nothing like Johns' run on GL (which is not a criticism of either run, to be very very clear - I mostly enjoyed Johns and am loving Morrison's so far). The first volume by Morrison is pretty...
