    Crecy is my favourite thing from Ellis. I'm really in to that time period and further back anyway but it really is an exceptional short graphic novel. I think you probably have to be English or...

    Don't get me wrong, definitely not ideal.

    Depending on price it's probably the only way I'll ever read Death Note because I don't have much interest in it but the chance to own a complete series...

    It's like three Lone Wolf omnibuses in one. I think it'd be alright. Probably last longer than a DC omnibus too!

    The Dark Horse volumes just seemed to have a special feeling about the stories that held it all together that the slipcase set didn't for me. It's hard to describe.

    Each to their own but after about 11 issues Hawkeye seems like nothing more than cheap novelties to me. Iron Fist has a cohesive, great story that expands a whole new area of the Marvel universe. I...

    I often find the 'student=poor' thing to usually be a load of crap. I'm sure there are students who really struggle with money and I'm not implying you aren't one but most spend a considerably amount...

    First volume was great. Obviously nothing will compare to the original series but it doesn't try to compete. It's just telling a story in that world with that character without any pretence.

    I don't think it sounds weird. It's supposed to be a kind of dark comedy. If everything is shied away from you wouldn't get things like the story with the man hiring Torpedo to kill his ex-girlfriend...

    I've only read the first volume but Torpedo is great. It's a free for all as far as humour and doesn't shy away from anything good or bad.

    Awesome. Haven't been buying Marvel for a while so am out of the loop. Shame they couldn't just collect 7-35 and be done with it though unless the solicitation on Amazon is wrong.

    Wait until you finish book 2 before ordering any more. Opinion varies of course but book 1 is especially good and the first half of book 2 is fun but then the usual Fraction decline kicks in hard....
