  1. Uh, no, both nostalgize and romanticize poverty....

    Uh, no, both nostalgize and romanticize poverty. Noonan directly says she liked remembering it.

    Ernst is not digging at wastefulness, she's in fact wasting a chance to actually reply to the state...

    I think bigger is better when it comes to screens. I remember reading comics on my original Kindle Fire was hard without guided view.

    If they'd release an iPad big enough to show a full-size...

    I didn't really see any anti-theism or preaching in what I've seen of The Boys so far, but the superheroes are the bad guys, and not just misunderstood or something, they're actively perverted and...

    I haven't forgotten. I grew up in the Reagan years, just like Ernst. We lived in an Appalachian "hollow," in grinding poverty, poor health, inadequate housing, food insecurity and bad sanitation that...
  5. That is weird. Ellis is Ennis with less heart,...

    That is weird. Ellis is Ennis with less heart, harder atheism and weird sex stuff. I think the message that comes through with Ennis's atheism is, boiled down, sort of an affectionate humanism. Ellis...

    I really doubt any staff members went through with this. What a horrible position to put someone in.

    Probably an old issue of Spider-Man when I was a kid. I read and reread my little hoard. Don't do a lot of re-reading now.
  8. I think you can only say it's not a reboot yet....

    I think you can only say it's not a reboot yet. No one seriously believes it'll stay Battleworld forever. There'll be some kind of return to something like the old status quo after and that might be...

    Madefire does the background audio thing and does it really well, you should look into that.

    I don't think I, personally, would be too into read-along dialogue. That's good for teaching small...

    My condolences. It's sad, but at least she's not suffering any longer. Focus on positive memories and keep your mind busy so you don't dwell on negativity.

    You mean the best comics ever.

    Actually, Superbaby is cringeworthy. That's not how kids talk. It's like the dialogue was written by someone who had not only never encountered a child but had also...

    I don't have a Fire HD, so I'm not sure about it. have an iPad Air 2 and an iPad 3 and have never had any eyestrain reading comics on it. They have nice high-resolution screens, very natural and easy...
  13. Poll: Easily. The Surfer and Galactus are mostly...

    Easily. The Surfer and Galactus are mostly irrelevant to the story, anyway. It's an Adam Warlock story.
  14. Eat whatever you want, but don't watch football....

    Eat whatever you want, but don't watch football. Football is dumb.
  15. Poll: I'm not sure how well it would work if the Surfer...

    I'm not sure how well it would work if the Surfer and Galactus just showed up for an Infinity Gauntlet movie. General audiences would be baffled. Better to intro the Surfer in his own film.
  16. Is Anyone Using Secret Wars as a Jumping Off Point?

    I know that a lot of us get to a point where we're buying books out of inertia. Buying it not because we're passionate about it, but because we've got a long, unbroken run and we don't want to stop....

    It'll go right back to the pre-New 52, right where it left off.

    The Koch Brothers and allies plan to spend nearly $900 million to buy the next presidential election. That's about what the Republican Party itself plans to spend, and also about what the Democrats...

    I use it on iPad. Works fine for me. Once in a while there will be a broken book. And there are some baffling issue gaps that make no sense. But it's a good value for the money.

    The reason they moved away from in-app purchases...

    The reason they moved away from in-app purchases was to avoid Apple taking a big cut. Maybe the stores that still use it are just factoring that into the price?

    Your best bet if you want the best quality is to inspect the comics yourself first. You can find lots of comic book stores that are selling unwanted old books cheap and in bulk. There's one...

    Mitt Romney was caught on video straight up saying he didn't give a fuck about half of America. Still got pretty much the same percentage of those people's votes he would have gotten anyway. Michael...
