• akbogert posted a message in the forum topic Top Selling Comics & Publisher Market Share: January 2016. on the Gen. Discussion board

    @abdullahzubair: Now I'm kinda curious. Because 1/2 of their top books (and 4 of their 9 top trades -- including top 2) were Star Wars. Depending on how many units, I'm tempted to say having such a hi...

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic Top Selling Comics & Publisher Market Share: January 2016. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Has anyone done any sort of breakdown (not necessarily for January, but for any recent stretch of time) of how Marvel is doing outside of its Star Wars books? Obviously those are popular, and provide ...

    I can't handle this many events at once. Standoff, Apocalypse Wars, and Scorpio Rising?

    I was positively grinning at Ryan's role. I guess I could see how it'd have been pretty jarring if you didn't know who Constantine was or that he was coming to this episode, but as others have said t...

    I'm definitely planning to give this venture a shot (assuming they do digital, and do it right). As for whether anything is going on my pull list, I reserve that for when I have more than a title to g...

    Do we know whether the Point One stories are standalone prequels to their respective titles (versus actually just the beginning of those titles)?

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic The 'Arrow' Season 4 Trailer Has Arrived. on the Arrow board

    This was, for me, a bad trailer for a potentially good season. It lacked cohesion and any real narrative thread -- just a bunch of quick cuts -- but many of the things in those cuts have potential. I'...

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic SECRET WARS Expands an Extra Issue. on the Comic Book Preview board

    @drellassassin: For a regular ongoing, I'd anticipate that. But for something literally resetting the entire continuity of the company I'd have expected it to be a little more tamped down, is all.

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic SECRET WARS Expands an Extra Issue. on the Comic Book Preview board

    I'm perfectly fine with seeing the series extended but:1- unless all this delaying is art-related, I'm a little uncomfortable with the implication that such a crucial story hasn't even finished being ...

    So I'm not 100% clear on whether Staples will be returning after #6, or whether we only get three issues with her. Sadly sounds like the latter though.
