My Uncle commited suicide when I was 9. I was there watching him spasm and flop on the floor. I'd been to funerals before that. But seeing that happen kinda drove the concept home for me.

@fallschirmjager: I'm reading Mark Millar's Swamp Thing run right now. He plays with different parliaments too. Alec becomes the avatar of stones, waves, vapors and fire and eventually becomes the most powerful being on earth.

I'm of two minds here. I think the humor in Guardians of the Galaxy and the first Iron Man worked incredibly well. So much so that they are the bench marks of CBMs for me. But I've always thought that after Iron Man's success Marvel tried shoehorning humor in where it didn't belong. Up until Winter Soldier I assumed this was going to be a constant across the brand. As of now Marvel seems to have found a good balance, realizing different stories require different tones. That's what DC/Warner needs to do. No, I don't want a funny Batman movie. But I also don't want an overly dark Flash movie either. Read the books, get a feel and let that set the tone for the movie. How hard is that?

@allstarsuperman: I don't have a Facebook or a Twitter account. Comicvine is my only online presence. That being said I don't think I'll leave completely.

@AssertingValor: I'm having a bit of the same problem. I've had a profile since '09 and find my interest dwindling. Personally, I'm going to checkout Panels.net when it launches.

On single issues? Around a $100 a month.

I'm really happy and a little surprised to see And Then Emily Was Gone on this list. I loved the first issue. Looking forward to the second. Other than that I've got.

Black Science #8

COWL #4

Outcast #3

Saga #22

Uncanny Avengers #23

Possibly All Star Western #34. Hard to pass up Darwyn Cooke art.

Hard to choose. Both were favorites of mine long before Jeff Lemire wrote them.
