  1. All of Silver/Bronze Age X-Men in Hardcover - for $350

    Well my love for the X-Men got the better of me again, and I ended up purchasing the Children of the Atom box set - because it's 30% off if you preorder it on Amazon. With the discount, it's about...

    Wow, we have the exact same rating! :D

    Cyclops was amazing in this. He was diplomatic and friendly but low-key dangerous and committed. His interaction with the FF was probably his best scene...

    So I was thinking about the NXM (from any squad/team), and who'd be considered as the top 20 members. Not necessarily my favorites, but those of the fourth generation of teenage x-students who've...

    Iron Man 3 is a great film. I really enjoyed it. I didn't mind the Mandarin twist at all (and I'm a huge Iron Man fan).


    And count me among those who really like 2003's Hulk. Maybe the most...

    I get that, and I appreciate that. However, personally I think that mourning needs to be explicitly acknowledged by Thor at some point - he doesn't have to go on about it, but I'd love if he...

    If you like the Silver Age, check out Archie Goodwin's run #1-28.

    I recommend the whole Micheline/Layton/Romita Jr run, which includes Demon in a Bottle (I'd start at #117 and go to #156); if you...

    I've enjoyed all of the MCU films, to varying degrees. I'm going off memory, because I've only re-watched 4 or 5 of them.

    Fun but not great:

    Ah, NOW I remember that book!





    Kaminski was great - actually, from Mantlo through Kaminski (#95-#313, 1977-1995) the Iron Man book was solid, ranging from good to great

    Stan Lee and Don Heck did solid stuff and built Iron Man's foundation. It's not on the level of SA Spider-Man or FF, but I definitely recommend a read.

    However, the Silver Age run I absolutely...

    Favorite Iron Man Runs

    I've been reading the classic Micheline/Layton/JRJR run from back in the day and absolutely loving it. I read bits and pieces of it growing up from my dad's back issues, but I'm giving it my first...

    Frankly, I don't think DiDio has done a great job overall. It's not simply that I don't agree with his creative choices - which I often don't, but those are his decisions to make - it's that I don't...

    Sgt. Rock needs 56 more issues to reach 500, and Adventure Comics 71 for 600 - that’d be pretty cool indeed!

    Yeah, I'd definitely follow Marvel's lead on legacy numbering if I was in charge of DC. No question.
