    I'd say that an American tracking down FOREIGN publications--even in the age of the internet--very much fits my characterization of being "hard to find." (Notably harder than finding American...

    They're hit and miss for me. Didn't like their Buck Rogers but do like their Flash Gordon. I didn't like Kevin Smith's Bionic Man, but I really enjoy SMDM Season Six.

    I never thought the...
  3. I can't recall for certain, but I think I read...

    I can't recall for certain, but I think I read that "Kings Watch" began the cross-continuity, and that the new FG series is connected to that. Plus, this new "King" thing will be connected.

    I...

    Normally, this would be enough for me to avoid a series. But since changing identities is part of the character, it can still work as a story.

    Of course, this must be addressed in the story. ...

    Savage Sword of Conan (1970s) and Conan the Barbarian.

    Cerebus (first two volumes).

    Groo the Wanderer (Pacific Comics is more PG; the Marvel Epic and later stuff is closer to G).

    It's hard...

    I love Flash Gordon. This series is decent. I hate that he was turned into a douchebag (like the new Trek movies did to Kirk). If the rest of the stories weren't good, I'd have dropped it for that...
  7. Sticky: I dropped Solar because the character was...

    I dropped Solar because the character was switched to a female. I don't buy these kinds of books just for the logo--I want the character.

    I dropped Magnus because it wasn't very good. Didn't...

    The "Death of Superman" storyline is a classic, but it was the worst Superman story ever told IMO. Suddenly Superman became a stupid fighter (punching what can't be hurt; fighting inside Metropolis...

    Consume... the verb base of "consumer."

    I buy trades almost entirely from Amazon because of the very high price differential. If the price is close, I just go to a LCS or bookstore.

    There are lots of good ones. I want to elaborate on one... GEOFF JOHNS.

    Johns doesn't just respect the characters he works on. He rehabilitates characters. He brings them back to greatness or...

    Read Superman BEFORE December, 1941. Not conservative at all. He fought the powerful in favor of the weak, took on crooked businessmen and their crooked crony politicians.

    Superheroes got...

    Dixon is just being reactionary.

    KIDS DON'T READ COMICS, CHUCK! They're bought and read by adults... and guess what: WE ARE INTERESTED IN POLITICS.

    America has become so politicized that we...

    Maybe Dixon should be targeting the children's books industry.... particularly the publisher of "Help, Mom! There are liberals under my bed!"

    And it's not a "liberal" idea for kids shows to be...

    At this point, it's just good business to eschew current social conservative agendas from any entertainment venture. Politics of exclusion = fewer customers. Politics of inclusion = more customers....

    From the comments quoted in the OP, the instances of rejection seem to be about childish editors and not any real political differences at all.

    If you're a conservative and you're being looked...

    Why I love the Bronze Age of Batman the best...

    1. No Robin. I hate sidekicks as a concept, and kid sidekicks on moral grounds. In Dec 1969, Robin grew up, became the Teen Wonder, and left for...

    Nobody idol-worships Neal Adams and Denny O'Neil more than me. But...

    FRANK ROBBINS does not get his fair share of the credit for this. (Nor do Irv Novick or Bob Brown.)

    Go back to the...

    It has started already with Batman Showcase v5. And v6 is available for pre-order on Amazon. So maybe we'll get this done over the next 10-15 years. :(

    I'd also prefer DC to jump the Batman...

    Marvel won't necessarily cancel a series doing 20k. But they might end that run of numbers to start up another #1.

    I've never been convinced that the Star Wars adaptation "saved" Marvel. It...

    I feel your pain. Some good stories are getting tossed into the dumpster. I have been enjoying the Wood series very much. I understand we all have specific wants and can't seem to get them, but I...

    Well said!

    When Marvel spent 3 years making post-Empire comics they all seemed a bit sad in that our great heroes had no clue where Han was. Seemed obvious where he was going (Tatooine and...

    There's not much that hasn't been done already.

    What's cheap is doing pretty much exactly what DH was doing.

    Yep. Doing the same stuff.

    1. DH was publishing a popular ongoing series set right after Ep4. What's Marvel's big idea? An ongoing set right after Ep4.

    2. DH's regular series was focused on...

    The art is a deal breaker for me. Very amateurish, especially the humans. No way I buy this based on the preview art.

    I think Kirby is so far beyond most other creators that they should really...
