    icctrombone. I wish I could blame my terrible basketball skills on the Flash.
  2. It's part of the conversation about comics. Just...

    It's part of the conversation about comics. Just like comics as a medium shouldn't be limited to fights between muscle bound characters, discussions about them shouldn't be limited to who wins in...
  3. Right, and no one is saying that the cause of...

    Right, and no one is saying that the cause of that outrage shouldn't exist, but that it will be recognized as outrageous.
  4. Or do the same thing they've always done, like...

    Or do the same thing they've always done, like artists have always done. Do we treasure every book every written? Every painting ever painted?

    I mean, c'mon!

    Criticism has always existed. ...

    I disagree. A true artist does not cave to social convention. Now, we can debate whether art done for commercial purposes is true art, but in my personal opinion, the commercial intent brings with...

    The point about no bad publicity is well taken. I don't think most Manara fans really give a toss about Spider-Woman, as you pointed out, but I also think most people in this thread already realized...
  7. It's not. No one is saying that it can't or...

    It's not. No one is saying that it can't or shouldn't be done. We are saying that it can and should be criticized, which isn't the same thing. The idea is to raise awareness that these depictions...

    Had you been reading the thread, you would understand that we already know what that is. Like Zenescope books....

    The problem is with books that are ostensibly aimed at all-ages, yet persist in...

    But I think we can all agree that those are terrible songs.
  10. If we're going all-time Fraction, I'd have to...

    If we're going all-time Fraction, I'd have to throw The Order on the list, too. (And Mantooth, of course.)
  11. I don't think it was that it was a rare variant...

    I don't think it was that it was a rare variant so much as both covers were not particularly sensitive to the issue. If they had added a Skottie Young variant and a few other choices, it wouldn't...

    Isn't the point of Bomb Queen to deconstruct and satirize the inherent sexism in a superhero comic? Much like Empowered?

    For me, it's Satellite Sam. Great to see Chaykin doing what Chaykin does best.
  14. That's a great honor. Dwayne will always be...

    That's a great honor. Dwayne will always be missed, but it's nice to see that those who carry in his spirit will be honored in his name.
  15. No. Never heard of it. Just kidding. It's a...

    No. Never heard of it.

    Just kidding. It's a wonderful series, and it's essential reading for any fan of the Marvel universe. The sequel, Eye of the Camera, is very good, too.

    Also, if you...

    Well, Jeff's always been a workhorse. He does have three creator-owned books in the works (one at Image, one at DH, and one through Scholatic, I believe), so that part isn't a lie. I'm guessing...

    Personally, I kinda like the idea, if only to see the Blood Syndicate and Legion try to co-exist.

    I would just have some kind of massive threat that makes all the Milestone characters need to band...

    Haha. Too right.

    I'd probably say he was ripping off Teddy Kristiansen or Marc Hempl, then feel stupid when I was told it's a Picasso cover.

    Fantastic Four was disappointing, but FF was great.
  20. I hope it is. I re-read it last night, and I...

    I hope it is. I re-read it last night, and I think I liked it even more. The art is something else.
  21. The thing is that I would classify Zenescope as ...

    The thing is that I would classify Zenescope as "softcore porn" comics. That's what their mission seems to be. I wouldn't even lump them in with the rest of the fantasy genre. Porn comics have...

    I'd say it's probably three reasons:

    1) Matt Kindt, his good friend, invited him to collaborate on The Valiant, and he liked the environment at Valiant.

    2) Since the Valiant universe is less...

    I believe it's a Philippino reprint of AC's Crimebuster revamp from the 1980's. The original Crimebuster was a character created by Charles Biro who appeared in Boy Comics. AC revamped a lot of...

    This is my only problem with the article, which I think is well presented and argued. It's all too common to equate comics with superheroes, but the reality is that there are far more genres within...

    Technically, Dr. Fate has nothing to do with the Egyptian gods. He was an agent of the Lords of Order and spent some time in Egypt working to create an empire to bring order to mankind. Nabu wasn't...
