    I like "The Magic Wars", but I don't think it informs very much of the Giffen 5YG. The dissolution of the Legion had more to do with the internal politics of the United Planets, something that's...

    The Granny Goodness story was from Secret Origins of the Super Villians 80-Page Giant, and there's a Scott Free story from Legends of the DCU 80-Page Giant #2. That Scott Free story plays a big role...

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    Read it.

    I don't know, but we're getting an omnibus of Walt Simonson's Orion and his back-ups for JK4F, so I'm happy.

    My first exposure to the Legion outside of event comics was the DnA series, and I had no trouble getting into the 5YG. The 5YG Legion is my favorite incarnation of the Legion, mostly because I...

    I was speaking about the period in general, not specifically the moment when Lobdell was hired. Marvel was considered very unfriendly to creators from '90-'96. The bankruptcy becomes a bigger...

    White Death is good. My only complaint is that I felt it sorta ended abruptly, but a good story overall.

    The truth is that Marvel was in its nadir as far as creator relations at the time. The brass had decreed that it was solely the characters that mattered, and talent was essentially interchangable...

    That Walt's the only guy who came into the industry around the same time as him whose work hasn't turned into a parody of itself.

    Walt's art is always evolving, and he's always trying new things...

    Peter David actually had a few things bought at that time, inventory stories and a run on a Spider-Man book. It was Jim Owlsley (Priest) who opened the door for him to write at Marvel. Before that,...

    Charley's War, in my opinion, is the finest war comic ever produced, and I'd rank it pretty high among the finest comics of all time. Tardi's books are up there, too.

    Not really, or a half-hearted one at best. I mean, it's clear that Geoff Johns has interest in the character, but I don't see that interest translating to much. I suspect it's a case where Johns...

    The Furies, the three witches/Fates, the Graces, and Eve are all different aspects of the same thing. Basically, you're looking at one concept from different perspectives/points of view. It's Fate...

    I think the problem for most of these idiots is that he's appearing in Teen Titans, not that he's appearing at all. For example, the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle was a character in the same Threshold...

    Well, Byrne leaving Marvel really left the book in a mess pre-David. I really liked the Mantlo/Buscema/Mignola stories that preceded the Byrne run. (Basically what happened was that the Hulk and...

    I actually don't want to read this story because the CCA stamp guarantees it's in no way going to be as wild, crazy, or good as the one that formed in my head when I first saw the cover.

    You've got to be kidding me. These people are being "trained" by paid models to consider all women in costumes as objects? I'm sorry, but unless these people are mentally ill, they should be able...

    To add to my previous point, people who are reading Warren Ellis' Supreme are most likely doing so because they are familiar with Alan Moore's run, which explains that Supreme periodically goes...

    Honestly, I think this has nothing to do with race, but ignorance of good books in general. Xombi and Resurrection Man in their original incarnations were both great books that were nothing like one...

    Yeah, by that definition, you want Cradlegrave. It may define the genre in comics.

    I also thinking Gary Milledge's sadly unfinished Strangehaven may fit the bill.

    I found both a hell of a lot...

    I'm not sure what you mean by "suburban gothic"? Do you mean a more lighthearted take on horror tropes like iZombie or something that deals with horror in a suburban context? If it's the second, I...

    He also wrote a section in X-Men: Heroes 4 Hope for charity in the '80s. Plus, some stuff for Epic as he considered Archie Goodwin a man of his word and not a representative of Marvel.
