Re: What comics are you reading now?

Still reading and enjoying Birthright (sadly it's coming to an end), Savage Avengers featuring Conan continues to just be a fun read, and I just read Nocterra which was a really well done first issue. Nocterra had a glow in the dark cover which brought back some 90s nostalgia. I do need to find some...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Reading the Paul Dini Batman Omnibus. Excellent self contained stories that include enough to contribute to a larger story arc. So far the only bad issues are the ones which were part of the "Resurrection of Ras Al Ghul." It is very apparent how "forced" the crossover detracted from Dini's writing.

Re: (Re-)Reading Acclaim

One general acclaim item I am interested about is the Turok TPB advertised (not the acclaim adventure zone issues). Did it ever get released? Besides the Q&W trades that had been published, all other Acclaim trades were only solicited but never released (Solar, Turok, XO). The Turok trade would hav...

Re: (Re-)Reading Acclaim

Magnus Robot Fighter – The first issue was a bit confusing regarding timelines and it seems like they tried to correct that by retelling the whole first issue in the first few pages of the second. After that it was mostly just a big ol’ pile of fine. The individual issues were engaging enough, but ...

Re: another unseen VH1 item..

I've always been a big VH1 Ninjak fan. I remember getting excited about the series solely from the Quesada/Palmiotti advertisement artwork in Previews, Wizard, etc.

I guess we will see if there is a big Q/P fan out there.

Re: Just read Trinity Angels 1-12

Ya those books were eyecandy to an extent. I've got the whole run in the boxes, but honestly I don't know that I ever read a single issue cover-to-cover. I've got so much back reading to do that it's entirely probable that I never will read Trinity Angels all the way through. I just recently replie...

1/5 - Very poor book, put this alongside Bloodshot as more examples of the current editors ineptitude in how to run the company from a creative perspective.
With all of the delays in comics, I am impressed you waited for this one.
