    Damian. Mostly for his attitude, but also because something about the Robin concept always bothered me. It's the weird projection of Bruce Wayne's psychological pathology on to minors disregarding...

    Hip Hop Family Tree should be everyone's favorite. It's fantastic.
  3. It's hard to tell when the books haven't appeared...

    It's hard to tell when the books haven't appeared yet, but I do like that the new mandate is to let books develop on their own rather than throw them into a micro-managed larger universe right off...
  4. I haven't, but there are certain comic book cover...

    I haven't, but there are certain comic book cover artists that will automatically make me want to check out a book. Brian Bolland is the most prominant as I find the books that he chooses to work on...

    Well, AC has been a perennial Eisner nominee, so that's nothing new. I think part of the problem is that a lot of former readers don't realize it's coming out monthly these days. I told a few fans...

    I love Michael Golden's art in the early issues of The 'Nam, but Vietnam Journal is the superior book in pretty much every other way. Really powerful stuff.

    I've actually re-read it lately, and I find that most of it stands up quite well. But that was the era when I first started reading comics, so I may have a little rose colored nostalgic reaction to...

    Did they actually use the TB Grover pseudonym for their American work? I thought the cat was out of the bag by then. I vaguely remember their actual names on the covers for their DC work, but I'm...

    Best: Andrew Bennett, a mostly forgotten '80s DC horror protagonist who starred in one of the New 52's best series. (Runner-up: Dick Grayson with the start of the Grayson series.)

    Worst: John...

    To each their own, but I thought the New 52 Madame Xanadu was a real step backwards after Matt Wagner's brilliant Madame Xanadu series. Turned her into a more generic action hero rather than the...

    Wow, this is just kinda sad. I know there's been some really strange petitions that demean the whole process before-- some even less important than this topic-- but this one features the bonus of...

    Easily Morrison for me. I can't say that I always like Grant's regular superhero work, but I respect that he's usually trying to do something different with them. Johns is just boilerplate to me.
  13. Sticky: Poll: I don't know. I'll grant the sales argument--...

    I don't know. I'll grant the sales argument-- which is probably the one that really matters to DC-- but as far as quality, I think we're slightly better off with the New 52. The thing is, though,...

    Milligan's always been like that for most of his work-for-hire. Give him a book to develop on his own and he's generally great, but otherwise, he's going to phone in it. I've really enjoyed both...

    I remember a comment in passing after his DH Conan run was panned (unfairly, in my opinion) that Roy had little interest in contemporary comics and preferred to work on Alter Ego.

    Could be interesting. It would be a different kind of voice than we've seen on Batman for awhile.

    There were a lot of covers I thought about, including some real classics, but for some reason, Cam Stewart's covers for The Other Side were the ones I couldn't get out of my mind. So powerful.

    Eh, I wouldn't say Doug Wheeler's or Jerry Prosser's respective ST and AM comics are amazing.

    It's really good. Neck and neck with Robinson's The Shade mini for best book for the n52. I'm betting they went with Dial H for a Deluxe Edition on the strength of China Mieville's name for the...

    Etrigan was supposed to be one of the characters for Seven Soldiers, but the Byrne Blood of the Demon series was already in development, so it was nixed in favor of Frankenstein.

    Thunderbolts 1 is a great one. I was amazed when I read that issue. I was a huge Avengers fan, particularly Stern's version, but I still didn't seem it coming.

    A fairly recent one was the fate...

    It's okay. Not great, not terrible, but also not near the standards of Gaiman's work. The Gaiman Tekno comic you want is Neil Gaiman's Teknophage by Rick Veitch and Bryan Talbot, which is being...

    Oddly enough, though, DnA were the first writers to really get US Agent after Gruenwald. Say what you will about Force Works, but their John Walker was a highlight of the series, beak-nose and all. ...
