    I think the problem here was a matter of escalation. If you recall, initially the anti-registration side were not thinking in terms of being purposely antagonistic towards the pro-SHRA side, as in...

    Yeah, okay, you do have a point there. The fight with Stark at the end, before Steve stopped and surrendered, did take things too far. Would never claim that Steve, once he gets worked up, doesn't...

    Very true.



    Love that storyline. Roger Stern was a gift.

    ...as for Civil War. Never faulted Steve his stubbornness there. He saw signs early on as to how that unconstitutional law was going to be enforced, and those signs weren't good. First Hill has...

    Yes. AvX was one of the worst written events in the past decade, and considering that Civil War 2 exists, that is saying something. On a more personal note, it's one of the reasons I can barely...

    On the contrary, CGers, rude store owners, nostalgic readers, all of these things fall under the header of one term: gatekeeping. And if readers, in ANY form of sales, including bookstores, are...

    I have read that certain shop owners have been less than welcoming with their business practices. It's horrible. I've been lucky in that regard, the two shops I frequent most are fantastic and...

    Yes. I know exactly the group you are referring to. If you ever have a spare moment, you should check out Gail Simone's twitter feed, it's very entertaining watching her tear into that particular...

    Rosenberg did Steve dirty in his Uncanny X-Men run (Kirby and Simon are probably turning over in their graves) and I'd hate to see his horrible take on Steve Rogers revisited for an entire run. But...

    I don't know about the kids noping out entirely. My 12-year-old loves superhero comics. I mean, I've tried to get her into them her whole life, but it's just this past year, since Into the...

    Dear god, no. Please for the love of all that is holy keep this one AWAY from Steve.

    That sucks about Dallas. Really unfortunate to hear. But that still doesn't give anyone the right to steal. Fans aren't entitled to books or characters at zero cost, I'm sorry for the harsh...

    Unless I'm misunderstanding you, the original was bought, then resold. So the creators re: writer/artists/etc. made some form of residual off the original buyer. That is the difference between...

    Depends. Several of the replies indicate that people steal because they love the characters but can't afford the comics. So there does seem to be character/brand affiliation involved as a motivating...

    The amount of people actually arguing with Gail Simone and Donny Cates on Twitter trying to justify piracy is blowing my mind. It's really sad. And they seemingly have zero remorse for what they're...

    Pretty sure there are more people illegally downloading monthly serial comics than there are those illegally downloading Raina Telgemeier graphic novels, but I don't actually have any actual...

    Oh I know, I was just kidding. I'm of the firm belief that one person's garbage is another person's treasure. That's why I really dislike character bashing (of ANY character, I will defend even the...

    Erik Larsen just provided interesting insight into why Gruenwald created Scourge. Guess Gruenwald wasn't a pacifist after all, lol (though I still side-eye the whole 'a WW2 soldier has never killed...

    I definitely don't think that this is the last we've seen of John Walker. The character is just too tenacious for that to be it. Plus, in the February 2020 solicitations Marvel released today, he's...
