    I'm in a no-buy situation for a while, but I might give Fangs a read. I also mean to read some holiday related comics, but it never happens!
    Haha yeah it was time for an avatar change
    Also I'm not super active here (posting wise) just like I'm not reading much (completely out of the superhero stuff and barely reading any image too ).
    Fangs is a good quick read and also free. If you want a cheap buy Pumpkinheads was like 7 on eBay, and I have no regrets buying it (but I'm a fan of Rainbow Rowell and romcoms to begin with)

    Hi, is Cruel Summer stand-alone or do I need to read Deluxe Edition 3 first? I have read Criminal Deluxe Editions 1 and 2 but nothing else so far.

    Thank you

    I just finished cruel summer and I haven’t read the 3rd volume of criminal, it uses characters from Criminal I think, but I’ll be damned if I can remember any, cruel summer works well as just a stand alone

    I didn't know there is a colored version! Is it good?

    Also wanted to ask - I've watched the movie with Johnny Depp (I know the graphic novel is supposed to be much better), is the graphic novel different from the story in the movie? As in: I already know the plot and the identity of Jack from the movie, is it exactly the same in the novel?

    Im not a fan of black and white work so I much prefer the coloured version, it’s been a while since I watched the film but I’m pretty sure the killer is the same, but apart from that the book and the film are nothing alike, for one thing Heather Graham is far too attractive to be a Victorian whore

    I'm FINALLY reading my Fantastic Four vol 1 (Silver Age) omnibus!! My plan is to read a few issues each night and churn through this to get to vols 2+3.
    I'm a little over 1/3rd through it. I have to admit, while silver age can be a 'chore' to get through sometimes, this stuff is great.

    The non-stop bickering gets on your nerves after awhile. And I thought it was interesting at the beginning, first 8ish issues, where everyone called Ben "Thing". I mean, c'mon, you've all known him for years, especially Reed, call him BEN. They obviously all do this now and have for a long time. One of those "get your footing" things from Stan's writing, I'm sure. And remember this was written for kids, hence calling him by his "super hero name" I suppose.

    As with all silver age, especially Marvel, it's interesting the pandering about women and (of course) Communism!! Specifically here related to the Red Ghost, but really it's all over the place in early Iron Man stories.

    Anyways, I'm enjoying things. And as time permits, which for me is about an hourish every night, I'm reading. I can't read for hours on end silver age stuff, it gets to be too much for me, but an hour or so is fine. And these stories are fun. But I'm really waiting to get to OMni vol 2 so I can read the initial Coming of Galactus story which I've never read, and all the Inhumans stuff. So great stuff ahead!

    I like to think of it like Star Trek TNG. The first season is rough but it makes you appreciate season 2 and on more. Same thing with that limbo period between FF 20 and the galactus saga.

    I do love FF annual #1

    Question for those who know a lot about comics history and creation. IN the earlier FF issues, there's quite a few panels where everything is colored in one color. The entire image is orange, or purple, etc... I've seen Atlas stories like this, too.
    My guess is this was used for expediency for the colorist - just color the entire man purple and move on. It adds a certain "mood" I suppose. Am I correct in that? Was there any other reason? When most panels are colored as you'd expect and then you have a random panel that's just ONE color, it's a little shocking. (I realize I'm nitpicking here)

    I recieved my copy of this last week but haven't started it yet. Good to hear that the stories are still enjoyable to read in modern times. Like you I am really curious to eventually get to the Galactus saga and introduction of Silver Surfer.
    I am currently working through vol 1 of Uncanny X-Men Omni, so I'll need to finish that before starting on the FF one.

    yeah, I'm trying to get through some of the big series I've been meaning to forever. I'll wait until 2021 until I have UNcanny 1-4 and then read that. I'm focusing on FF now, then probably head to Iron Man. I've read OMni vol 1 (which was a chore), but will re-read it, and then I have omni 2 and all MMWs to present-released, so I'll read that. I read both Cap omnis last year (which were good!) I also need to to a read through of all my Avengers omnis, which I haven't done in forever.
