Re: Crossgen Comics appreciation and memories thread.

I am doing what may be unthinkable for some, but binding my CrossGen books to make reading easier. they will be going onto shelves in my man cave as i begin to get rid of single bagged and boarded issues as far as is possible over the next few years. Ruse, Rout 666, Solus and Crux are in the pipelin...

I never really got into CrossGen but my wife read Ruse #1 a few years ago and asked me to track down the rest of the run. :thumb:
Sorry for the threadomancy, but your wife has good taste. :)

Re: What comics are you reading now?

My recent reading has been collected editions (with a lot of it stuff i had in singles but hadn't yet found time to read). I have just finished Jonathan Hickman's avnegres and new avengers runs, with Infinity as part of that, and Secret Wars. His plotting and milieu building are great stuff to me, h...

Re: Heather Antos leaving Valiant for IDW!

I can't imagine any of these folks are working full time. These are PT gigs, probably on a freelance basis. Honestly, I think Heather is better off without Valiant. Who would want to work somewhere that isn't publishing your projects? I would find that endlessly frustrating. At least IDW pushes out...

Re: Bad Idea rubbing people wrong?

They underestimated how many people would be interested in this first print run of ENIAC and said it's going to be corrected for future books. It was too far in progress to change, from what Dinesh told me on stream. It's FOMO I think but they'll make up for it. Heck, just the quality of stories th...

Re: Milestone Returns

Huh? So DC is laying off a bunch of staff, canceling a bunch of books and moving a bunch more to digital only yet they are bringing Milestone back? :-? I thought Milestone didn't sell that round the first go around. Other than Static Shock does anyone even know any of the characters? I would think ...

Sounds good :clap: .They kind of wrapped up the original storylines a few years back.
I was happy to hear of their return back in 2017, then things got derailed by the lawsuit. I hope we finally see the fruits of their labours soon.

Re: Milestone Returns

Icon & Rocket - I think Kirkman's Invincible's dad's story shares some similarities with Icon. I enjoyed the relationship between Icon and Rocket. I probably liked this book better than Static Shock. Hardware - I thought this was a poorly done Iron Man ripoff but I may need to give it a reread. I c...

Re: DU binding projects

I don’t mind the clean spine look at all. Love the all black. Think this looks pretty solid. I’d love to do something like this for my Harbinger V1 floppies. I know folks on this board have done great bindings. Wish there was some way to share binding files and printers to mass produce the best loo...

Cheers; I will learn as I go for sure, e.g. in hindsight I wish I had put the Wildtsorm logo at the top of the spine. thinking about offsetting cover art more etc.

DU binding projects

I am becoming less and less a fan of dragging books out of comic boxes then bags with boards for re=reading. I prefer re-reading in collected editions, which is why I have so many tpbs and HCs that duplicate single issues that I have. Late last year I started my first binding project, and despite my...

Re: The Final Witness

Most of those quotes look to me like she’s being acerbic or speaking in hyperbole to get noticed among the chatter that is social media or more specifically Twitter, and not exclusively statements that would come from a place of dislike of different races just because of their race. That being said...
