    But they were never particularly useful terms to begin with. When the idea of a "middle class" began to lose its ideological value-- as filtered through through pre-'50s social theory and...

    Right, but Loren already ruled out gods/cosmic beings and accounted for the Eternals.

    Agatha Harkness is about 400 years old. Grew up in Salem during the witch trials. Ancient One, according to his short-lived Epic series, is about 500 years old.

    Yeah, but it wasn't very good on top of that.

    Hell, Walt Simonson's Orion, which was, in many ways, the best New Gods book ever, limped along until issue 25.

    That's just the comic book world...

    The original Vibe was an absolute mess, but his recreation was something the New 52 did right. I don't his series was great, but it was pretty good, which is something you can't say for most of the...

    I'm guessing you haven't actually read Preacher?

    It would still be DC, though, but no one counts Vertigo when putting down the Big Two. More diverse books from Vertigo right now than anywhere...

    Jonah Hex for sure. All-Star Western was a good book, but it really suffered from the immediate comparison to JH. Plus, Jordi Bernet was the regular artist!
  8. Now that I think about it, Agamemnon of The...

    Now that I think about it, Agamemnon of The Pantheon (Hulk's old team with Greek myth themed codenames) would have been alive back then. He's an immortal, but not a god, although sometimes confused...

    Loren, I don't know if you've ever checked out "The Appendix to the Marvel Universe" website, but it's a great resource for stuff like this. It's only for more obscure characters, but it's very...

    IDW has been reprinting the Tim Truman/Chuck Dixon Airboy series from Eclipse.

    Haha. That would make another DC vs Marvel mini almost worth it.

    Yes, it gives a lot of the background for the entire in its story as well as the info pages. Really a good story. Takes off from Thunderworld in an interesting directing.

    Varnae, Lord of the Vampires, who had been active from pre-Cataclysm Atlantis until the the 15th Century when he ceded his power to Dracula.

    For me, I'm going to put Thunderworld first as it was the only one that felt like a complete story with a satisfying conclusion instead of jumping into the universal threat. That's not the intent of...

    I love the Showcase Presents... line. (And I loved Marvel's Essentials, too.) I like those massive amounts of comics at an affordable price, and to be quite frank, in many cases, I prefer the art...

    I don't deny that aspect of it, but there wasn't a fervent need to have anything in its proper place within the universe until Roy got involved. It was a loose universe-- everything was connected,...

    Haha. It's a lot better than The Happening. I actually saw that piece of crap in the movie theatre. I'd say I still want my money back, but I think I'd rather have the time I wasted back and a...

    It's losing to Walt's current Ragnarok run, too, in my opinion. Again, if you're not cool with what Marvel is doing with Thor, Walt Simonson has a Thor series with IDW that you should check out.

    Their respective episodes are considered amongst the better ones of the new Dr Who, which is hit or miss even if you're not a fan of the old series. (Which I am not.)

    I think Valiant's strength is that they seem invested in keeping their universe managable. They seek out appropriate creative teams for their characters, and they let those books develop instead of...

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that you were. For some reason, this little mystery has piqued my interest.

    No, I don't, and I think that's probably a good thing for both reasons of content and creator rights. I do think we'll see smaller scale universes like Valiant and Mike Mignola's Hellboy/BPRD...

    Going to be honest: most comics, especially those of the corporate superhero variety, tend to be "all derivative, all rehashed" comics. It's rare that we get a truly original concept with a novel...

    Count me in with the disappointed bunch. The book never really came together, and I disliked that they were rolling with some of the dumbest additions to the New Gods mythos. Also, Giffen on art...
