    I kinda disagree with this. In his classic works, Miller had a very pro-labor message, something that bore out in his attacks on the comics industry in general, be that the Words and Pictures...

    There's been comics that have tackled events like Ferguson before. (I'm thinking specifically of a John Ostrander story, probably from The Spectre. Can't place it, though.) It all depends on how...

    I have it, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I think it would be disingenuous if Brubaker didn't have racist and misogynist characters and moments in a noir story set in '40s Hollywood. ...

    Having finally read this, it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Dreamer's Anti-Life moments were vague enough that I don't see it necessarily as the return of the Anti-Life Entity, and I...

    I'm sure there will be complaints. Especially when people start to realize that the enemies in the story are essentially fans and trolls who pick through everything with their negativity, and...

    Oh, anyone can do that. As long as the character is just in background and has no role in the development of the story, it's just a background gag/homage. Actually, Enemy Ace's appearance in...

    Jamie Delano and David Lloyd's The Territory from Dark Horse sounds like the first one.

    It's an interesting idea told in a so-so story, but if you like Corben, it's worth picking up just for the art. You can find copies quite cheaply as it was one of those books that Marvel burned off...

    Thematically, though, I'd still qualify Gotham by Midnight as a Dark book. I'm sure the Bat- connection will help sales, but it's a Spectre book and it's got Ben Templesmith's art.

    MAX, in my opinion, actually got off to a great start with Alias, which was its first book. Then they published Apache Skies, which was a great Western by John Ostrander and Leo Manco, and Supreme...

    As far as Spider-Man, to combine your love of superheroes with your degree pursuit, I'd recommend Kraven's Last Hunt by JM DeMatteis and Mike Zeck. It deals with some major themes like mortality,...

    I think that the Gotham After Midnight Spectre book, despite the Bat-reference, gives us a book that might have a chance. (At least for as long as Templesmith hangs around.) There's Klarion, too. ...

    Multiversity is off to a very, very good start, but I'm going to wait until we get another issue or two.

    It depends. Bringing the character into an in-universe book would require some legal arrangments that might not be worth the time or effort to DC. We'd have to know the terms of the original...

    I'd argue that even if an editorial mandate is stifling to creativity, it's still part of working for the company. It's not like there hasn't always been editorial mandates. Creators have walked...

    Yeah. I had red flags go up when I heard that Starlin was involved so early in the series-- love Starlin's work in general, just not his New Gods stuff-- but I will stick around for Giffen's return.

    Yes, it was, and it was a terrible idea that missed the point of the New Gods altogether.

    I haven't read the issue yet, but it sounds like this series has stumbled.

    It's the old maxim that destruction leads to creation. For artistic endeveavors, the folklore is that self-destruction leads to creative insight, "to bleed for one's art", so to speak. (It also...

    I think the standard response would be the '80s, but I think it can be pushed it back even further to the '70s. Marvel wasn't publishing color comics as graphic as the Fleisher/Aparo Spectre in...
