    Like a number of fellow members in this board, I'm rereading the Lee/Ditko Spidey omnibus. Romita was always my favorite Spidey artist since it's his look what got me into the character. But it's undeniable how much concept, dynamism and sheer creativity Ditko brought to the table. In his run, you find all of the basic Spider-Man mythos for the first time. All the classic villains appear within those first issues. Is it too wordy, or is the art too clunky? For audiences not used to the Silver Age charm, maybe. But it still holds up.

    His work in Creepy or Eerie written by Archie Goodwin is my favorite by him on all levels, but as far as Marvel goes, in my opinion Amazing Spider-Man 31-33 is peak Steve Ditko, *SPOILER* the machinery lifting and the swinging arms after defeating Ock's henchmen sequences being my highlights.

    Moore's Swamp Thing is sensational. Every few months or even years, you come across comics which 'defy' the genre and are simply fantastic stories. Swamp Thing fits thisc ategory. The horror aspects are powerful and even knowing it is a comic and only fiction, the fear you feel is genuine. I also love the oddity of it all, but how the book takes itself seriously.

    One of the best comics that I have ever read, possibly the best.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    Started reading Multiversity OHC, the last new 52-era book I have to read before I can finally get to the Rebirth deluxe editions. The first issue was excellent, and I think I'm actually going to read it again before moving on to the next one...something that definitely doesn't happen in collected editions.

    I didn't start yet, but I just got my Miles Morales Omnibus and the Runaways omnibus. I'm super excited to get started.

    Hellblazer vol 9 has picked up a bit but that may be to do with Sean Phillips art more than anything else, can’t tell you how disappointing it is rereading these

    Just finished the Miles Morales omnibus. Bendis' dialogue gets a bit weird towards the end. Starting Morrison's Batman.

    I really think you should just end your agony and sell the lot.

I haven't been around comics in a long time and only recently got back into them about a few months ago so I didn't know much about the characters the story revolved around like Ralph, Ollie, Sue and Zatanna. Thought the dialogue was pretty good and flowed well, and the whole mindwipes thing was pretty wild.

    That Alan Moore Swamp Thing has crept into everything. I think the director of Ex-Machina and Annihilation was talking about how the look of the book influenced his movie.

    I read Infinity Hardcover. Its a comic that desperately wants to be a movie. It was a quick read, and i was a bit surprised that it seemed so superficial given that I often hear how great Hickman is supposed to be.

    I struggled to get into Hickman's Fantastic Four; should I go back to that run or is it going to be the same as Infinity?
