    As others have pointed out, diamond shipping numbers are meaningless aside giving a rough indication of what comics are doing relative to each other. As for your other question, are comics viewed as...

    Mockingbird is a non-linear puzzle-box, so we don't know how "serious" the story is yet, but the tone has been deliberately very comedic and light-hearted from #1. But even if the resolution is of...

    This is fine, but successfully intetegrated minorities don't separate our clubs & institutions - so you'd have to introduce non-mutant characters into the X-Men for the metaphor to hold. They could...

    So please explain the reason d'Ítre of the X-Men if mutants are allowed to successfully integrate into society. I can't see one; it would feel retrograde to have a racially segregated team.

    Yes, individual mutants, but the whole "mutants a metaphor" doesn't really work to tell model minority stories.

    Don't you come in here being all sensible & level headed. You're a comicbook fan, so start panicking and hating any change ever ;)

    I bought issue #1, but as it got both basic geography & history very wrong I dropped it immediately.

    *dons monocle* It's your fault Frenchman - you supported their revolution despite seeing that they were barbarous enough to waste damn fine tea in Boston harbour. ;)

    Thanks for the heads-up about the new Giant-man, I'll check him out. I'd forgotten about the new Inhumans (I love the Inhumans comics but somehow they slipped my mind). Didn't know about the others,...

    One of the most underrated events Marvel published, and it was totally possible to skip it entirely by not buying #number.AU comics, which I really wish was done more often so I cold choose between...

    What's with that, anyway? Why did they choose to move to limbo? Or give me the comic & issue number, so I can find out.

    Really? I loved it, combined with Uncanny, has thrown out a bunch of plot seeds everywhere whist being a solid story in it's own right. Just what you want from a first arc.
