    Long gone are the days when it was nice site. Period.

    For god's sake, they're running articles on the top 15 superhero memes now!

    Indeed, I was one of the original posters here (went by the name Jeeb) and man it was THE site to go to back in the day. No click bait garbage, great columns. Was an absolute gem amongst all the comic sites at the time. Now I just go here for the comic previews.

    I think Brian Cronin is the last of the regular columnists here. But I still have a hard time pulling up the archive so I can find older columns. I can't find Brian Hibbs input from the viewpoint of an comic shop owner. It's like a new article must appear every 10 minutes and push everything down.

    I think a lot of the regular columnists left for other venues or maybe weren't invited to contribute.

    I'm drawing a blank at the moment, but Hibbs' "Tilting at Windmills" is still running on another site somewhere.

    I haven't read the 'Buy Pile' in months. Every Thursday I would check it out.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    I hate how readily they post spoilers without warning. Sometimes even spoiling stuff before an episode of a TV show they cover airs on the West Coast.

    Some of the "top 10" style lists are funny. But, most of them are pretty tedious and rely on over-selling a point ("this toy would be banned!!!").

    Beyond the content, another problem is that the page is bogged down with intrusive advertising that often interrupts the articles.
    Current pull-file:
    -Fantastic Four
    -Mega Man: Master Mix
    -Tony Stark: Iron Man
    -Transformers: Unicron
    -WWE

    Tell me about it. I foolishly opened an article and had season 3 of The Flash spoiled for me (I'm only on episode 10). Thanks, CBR.

    This deserves it's own thread, but could they stop posting items on the Home Page THAT SPOIL THE MOVIE!!! on the day it comes out!!
    Not everyone sees the movie the first day. Articles that start "Did Thanos...." can give away major events in the movie.
    ...just stop!!
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Wow. It's already hinting at the general "How" of Deadpool 2's ending.

    Is it even officially out in the States yet?

    I hate the movie articles, they clog up the front page, screaming at you "There's a movie out, have you seen it? No, well screw you, here are about 10 articles which will spoil it for you!"

    "Did Thanos" what? Wipe? Flush? Wash his hands after using the bathroom?
