    @madamfireblade I really can't give credit for off screen events in a story. If it's not included, I can't see if its done well or not, so no credit can be given. It's like grading a paper: I grade...

    I don't give credit for off-screen events. If it's not included in the actual story, I can't give it credit. It also helps invalidate any supposed meaning Mettle's death had. It was a pretty short ti...

    Waid alone, for me, is a reason to at least give it a look.

    I'm quite surprised to see so many behind this series. I mean, for me, it's the ultimate compilation of failure. We have Jessica Drew, a character who has a glut of clunky back story and minimal cha...

    As much as I want there to be a Runaways movie, I think a few more characters under their belt are needed before they can get off the ground. But it would be nice if one of them was . . .

    Land is something that normally repulses me, but the writing has won me over. And the fill in artist, Valerio Schiti, was amazing.

    @leokearon: Who says the thing there is even Alex? With the way he's voiced, it could very well be some entity masquerading as him and given how much his characterization differs from how he was when...

    That hollow feeling you're getting, I think, is from the fact that this is a shanghai plot. The character's decisions don't actually matter as the plot forces them down a path they can't really escap...

    @yfnjman said:if they're going to kill characters, only to bring them back after a short amount of time, it's just pointless and a stunt. I agree in part, but sometimes the deaths are done as pointle...

    Thank you -- and that definitely could be read as a petty metatextual jab. We may never know if it is or not, but it definitely could be read as such, but I lean towards the unintentional end of thin...

    How to Kill a Character 101

    The Death of Gwen Stacy is one of the most iconic moments in comics because primarily of its shock value and how it has been remembered. Personally, I don't think the story as originally told was al...
