    Very excited to see the upcoming Epic Collections video.

    Of the 15 he listed, I'll probably pick up at least three - Thanos, Cates, and Hulk, and I might get Infinity Crusade . . . maybe. ...

    I like mob boss, but only if he's not running the top mob in town. He's never struck me as sufficiently capable to be the top dog, but he's really good as "guy feuding with another mobster."

    Rules of Engagement came close, both with the opening where Alfred tells everyone and then the Dick/Damian scene waiting on the steps. But yes, it'd have been nice to see some more King banter...

    I found big lots of the trades on eBay. That ended up being the most practical way for me coming in late to the game. It's annoying, of course, but with a little patience I got 1-150 in tpb for...

    I'm very excited about the omnibus in August. I didn't pick up the Absolute w/the new Burnham pages, so it'll be quite a treat to get to read them for the first time.

    At a guess, I'd think that your mapping will happen, but probably later than sooner. The second Thor by Aaron Complete Collection comes out next week (the first of three(?) that'll focus on Jane...

    I really wish DC would get it together on their collected editions. Didio's version of the market suggests that Marvel's material is just better than DC's, since they have no problems selling plenty...

    I enjoyed Rooftops. It's probably the high point (or low point, depending on your feelings about these things) of "what the hell is still in continuity w/Batman" for King's run. Holly Robinson...

    Seeing them omit #65 is a bit disappointing from a completionist standpoint - I think it's fair to guess that if/when we get to Flash by Waid v8 (or maybe they'll call it Flash: The Second True Hero...

    We might be slightly far afield, but it maps much better from Selina's POV (even though it's not her book). Selina is the lower class woman who catches the eye of a prince/duke/nobleman, he's willing...

    I read it . . . oh, maybe around 2001-2002 (whenever the trade came out in that range). Maybe a bit after when DC started the prelude to IC stuff? I'd been reading DC since 1991 or so and read Zero...

    Honestly, it has all the hallmarks of a certain type of romance story (you see it a bit in steampunk, regency romances, and I'm sure other places) - man and woman from different upbringings, fierce...

    Welcome and way to come in hot on your first post!

    I'll repeat myself, but how can you look at Epic Collections sales and not just do the same thing? Maybe don't go as bold as Marvel and just...

    Don't forget Robin v6, Azrael v2, Kyle Rayner v2/3 (I forget which was cancelled), and the high likelihood that Shadow of the Bat is ending at v4

    The nightmare Wonder Women being under-utilized was my biggest (only) complaint about Metal, so hopefully this fulfills the promise of those brief appearances. I assume Death Metal is whatever will...

    Are you saying I should stop waiting for Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) v4?

    Didio's comments seem tone deaf, or at least suggest that they don't understand the most ardent section of their fan base....

    It would be kind of funny if the new Gwen mini actually establishes her having a bit of an evil streak to justify her having gone to Hell to become Kindred. That's be an all-time bait-and-switch by...

    I would assume it's Helena, their child, but also possibly the inspiration for the name (e.g. Helena was someone at the orphanage). No real reason, other than that King's couple has a real...

    This is mostly suggested tongue-in-cheek, but what about the actress that played Aunt May during the Clone Saga? She was hired by Norman, she's been basically forgotten ("barely remembered"), she'd...

    I think if Anakin had appeared (as was rumored) behind Rey while she was fighting Palpatine, it'd have made more sense for him to appear w/his kids. It's a bit of a non sequitur if he only appears...

    My pitch for Traveller would be a sort of Watcher-type figure for the less cosmically inclined Marvel characters - as a student of human behavior and emotion, he appears at times of great upheaval...

    On a completely different note, am I the only one that wants to see someone do a new spin on Judas Traveller and (the) Scrier(s)? Maybe a "Geoff Johns on Green Lantern" style pulling all the pieces...

    It's not that I can't imagine how it might have happened, it's that the way they talk about it strongly suggests there is more to the story than just what is shown in TLJ. Snoke (somehow puppetted...
