Re: North Carolina Comic Shop To Boycott Action Comics

Pretend you're a member of ANY group and check out websites supporting that group. It will be filled with haters. There's nothing to conclude from any of it, except that the internet is full of people either actually in or just mentally equal to junior high school. I wish it was that easy. It seems...

Re: North Carolina Comic Shop To Boycott Action Comics

Well, if GD was exactly what the owner thought it was, I'd say his reaction was just fine. I completely agree that Superman saying 'God D#$m' would've been totally out of character and inflammatory. Superman was raised by good, farm folk that are mostly Christian. If nothing else, he'd have respect ...

Re: What other things do you collect ?

Still collecting Dukes of Hazzard General Lees. I got another plastic one that came only in a mail away playset. Been looking for it for a while. Now I'm prowling for a Romper Stomper General Lee. They're rare, but I'll find one. Also looking for a Corgi General Lee with Bo and Luke figurines. Not t...

Re: What happened to Alex Ross?

I liked Marvels. I was never big on Kingdom Come. Ross is a good artist. He had potential to become a great one. He never improved or tried new things. That, to me, is his failure. I will treasure his early work and, if he ever again produces on that scale or beyond, I will be there. Until then, hi...

added penciller and inker John Lucas to the guest list. Johnny's work is stellar, IMO.

Has anyone at DC admitted they're changing Supes to get out of paying the Siegel/Shuster families royalties? How is that possible when Superman is a national, extremely well known trademark, that hasn't hardly changed since he was created? Sure, his marital status changed and his powers changed som...

I believe if comics are going to survive in the future they'll have to go digital in some way. LCS's are disappearing for a reason and we all know what that reason is: it's because the comic industry isn't promoting and distributing comics they way they need to. They've cannibalized their market by ...

The only comic I'm reading right now is with the Red Hulk. Thunderbolt Ross as a Hulk is actually pretty cool!

Staples does an excellent job of scanning art. Just hand them a thumbdrive and tell them the resolution you want and they'll do it for ya for cheap. At least the cute girl over here did mine for cheap. You can then run it through photoshop or GIMP to fix anything you like.
