    Martian Manhunter doesn't need a new book. It just needs more people to read the current book, which is both crazy and awesome. It's the gonzo imaginative comic that people often say they want, but...

    My controversial opinion:

    Even though I rarely agree with him and find him far too cocksure in his opinions, I actually like what Trey Stains brings to the table. He's developed some interesting...

    Etrigan's been rhyming for far longer than you'd think. I want to say it started in 1979. It developed a few years after the Kirby comic. It was actually Len Wein who started the rhyming stuff...
  4. I don't believe that the Demon was a bad...

    I don't believe that the Demon was a bad creation, but it's certainly second tier Kirby. The original series was pretty good and solid entertainment, but it certainly doesn't compare to the Fourth...

    Yeah, they do, but mostly to cater to vinyl afficionados. I actually have three within walking distance, but outside of the vinyl, their selection tends to be older, more obscure stuff or deeper...

    It was really a side effect of the speculator's bubble bursting rather than any comment on quality. It was poor timing on the part of DC. Can't fault the effort, though.

    Oddly enough, Transmet...

    I can speak to what happened with Minx-- certain WB/DC elements did not like the format, and Vertigo spent beyond their means on advertising placement in other media. The hope was that these books...

    I'm always saying that they've aren't enough Nimrods around.

    The only problem I had with Priest's Steel is that Denys Cowan was often dogging it, especially as the book progressed. He pretty much threw the book on Sal Buscema's inks, figuring Our Pal Sal...

    Love The Crew, but there's more than a few production problems with Xero-- pages printed out of order, word balloons for the wrong characters, omnipresent coloring mistakes, which are kind of...

    My personal opinion is that most of them are a bunch of goofs. Unless it's a volunteer effort for younger kids, it's a waste of time. If you actually think you're fighting crime, then I think you...

    Transmet began with Helix, which was Stuart Moore's attempt to launch a sci-fi line out of Vertigo. Helix folded early in Transmet's run-- I think around issue three-- and Transmet was Vertigo for...

    Massively excited for this. I have scattered issues of the series, mostly from the Gulacy years, but I've never invested in completing a set. The Moench/Gulacy era is an important stage in the...

    There is a tendency among younger Irish-Americans to reclaim using Gaelic forms of names for their children. "Padriag" instead of Patrick, etc. In some ways, it's an effort towards a reclamation of...

    There's a character from the Warren Ellis/Leo Manco run on Hellstorm called the Bailiff of Madness. It is essentially Hell's concierge (with all the warped functions you'd think would apply.) Its...

    Is Chaykin going to be the regular artist, or was this just a one-off?

    Good ol' Anton Arcane. Brings creepy to a whole new level with the sexual interest in Abby.

    Actually, I think Birds of Prey was an inspired idea. Unfortunately, I don't think it works without Oracle as the central character. Also, I don't think many actual BoP issues truly rose up to the...

    Twilight Children was definitely the best of the bunch. It wasn't a perfect first issue, but it certainly provided enough hook to bring me back. Like a lot of Beto's work, it will build over the...

    Yeah, really a mixed bag as far as content. The Gibbons/Sook Kamandi and Paul Pope Adam Strange are the two best strips, the Gaiman/Allred Metamorpho strip does some interesting tricks with the...

    Count me in with the disappointed readers. Barberi has shown himself capable of breathing new life into hoary old pulp cliches and themes in Five Ghosts, so I expected something less generic here. ...

    All Star Section Eight has definitely been my favorite. The latest issue shows that there's some sentiment under all that skewering.

    Prez would be second. It's definitely a good mini, but I felt...

    Because he's Marvel's most popular character, and using him means that people who normally wouldn't pick up the first few issues of a book will pick it up because he's in it. Hopefully, those...

    It hasn't got that yet. I have it on good authority that the series takes an unexpected turn in issue eight when Ash Williams and his hooptie fall out of a time portal into the 1920s, and all sorts...
