    The more I read this ... really looking forward to it. If this is their idea instead of Vertigo then I'm up for it. Short seasons of different themes ran by one writer is great idea. I still dont...

    I ve only ever bought records, floppies and trades and the downside is accumulation of stuff. However, when I helped a more tech embracing friend move house we set up his living room and it was...

    I can see why they might want to clean up their act, get away from controversy, and reposition themselves as "safe" entertainment to chase the $$$.

    At least GL/GA put people centre stage and made heroes actually look at what they were doing and whether they were just stooges for the status quo or if they were actually doing anything. It was over...

    Yes the comic shop or traded in the bookshop. All that stuff is gone now when I go into comic shop and that's the readers fault because the books all existed at one time

    In the 80s you could pick up comics that had the full spectrum of sexuality in graphic detail. Then they slowly starting disappearing from the shelves and new titles stopped appearing. People talk...

    Seems very odd to relaunch it alongside black label (or after?) then say.. oh we are cancelling it to sort branding and age limits out. Hmmm... quite the u-turn.

    Had to Google this. Now that is a proper comic book concept - that could be genuinely funny and cutting if done properly / or a complete car crash. Either way it's a win though.

    I just find Marvel to be a very cynical, exploitative company.

    I'm sure others feel that way about DC but since the 90s my own feeling is that Marvel take no pride in their work.

    Compare the price of say a copy of Nexus in the early 80s to price of book now. It's pretty much inline with inflation.

    It was $1.50 in 1983 which is about $4 today.
