Alot of comic book collectors like myself have stories about how they got introduced to the fun world of comic books whether they were introduced to the world of comic books by a family member/relative or they were in a place that sold comic books and made a curiosity driven purchase that got them hooked into the world of comic books. But what was your first comic book "love"? What was the first comic book series you started collecting once the world of comic books had you in its clutch (and its fingers in your wallet). For me, my first comic book love was the short lived comic book series "Go Boy 7". What was yours?
Just discovered the biography of Bor, father of Odin on comicvine. very fascinating character. i hope Marvel Now! brings back this character if he hasnt already been back yet. In the hands of an most excellent writer, this character could be very interesting. It would be interesting to see what affect the return of Bor to Asgard would have politically. would Asgard suffer a splitting into factions that want and don't want Bor back as ruler, whether he wants it or not? How would odin or thor react if they found out (if they havent yet) who really banished Bor. It would be great to see the trio, Bor+Odin+Thor take on a celestial or two. what do my fellow comic book readers think?
I'm excited about the new directions this new dark spiderman will go but i must admit i am worried that doc ock will not take peter parkers life lessons to heart and become that masked menace that jonah jameson always said that spiderman was. what do you think about the new "superior" spiderman?
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS Picked this up yesterday at the local comic book store. Wasn't going to pick it up originally but with its flashy cover i thought "oooh shiny" and just couldn't resist picking it up. I don't regret doing so. The art was good and satisfied me and the colors were great in my opinion. As for the story and plotline, nothing major happened but certain small events hinted at big things to come in the comic book such a possible robot revolution and the appearance of a lone unseen gunman who i speculate may or may not be a rogue judge but its too early to tell. Although the art and color was great and the storyline had hints, it wasnt an exceptional comic book and i personally think that the new Judge Dredd series could go both ways in term of good and bad and as for the cover that attracted me to it, the shield on it is really awesome, demanding your attention and drawing your focus. The material it was made of was unusual too as it was thicker than most comic book covers and felt more durable as well. If you have some spare pocket change, pick this comic book up although it is 3.99, a dollar more than the usual comic book.
I was in a pawn shop store, looking around while i waited for the comic book store a couple of blocks down to open up their mail and set out the new comic books. While i was looking around, i see a tote full of comic books. 1 dollar for 1 comic book or 7 comic books for 5. great deal right? I went through the totes and looked through them all. i had a pile of about 10 comic books picked out but i was force to pick just one in the light of my recently lost work study. the one i chose? the one that was most interesting. 1995 Batman/Judge Dredd: The Ultimate Riddle. I thought that i had found a diamond in the rough but i was sort of let down. The artwork was great and amazing but the comic book most overpowering flaw that overwhelmed the quality of the comic book was how short it was. The fight scenes felt rushed and i feel like that i barely got to feel any of the characters, even the most prolific ones like batman and judge dredd. it just felt so shallow. I feel that this comic book would have done better if it had been stretched. its a crying shame. but then again the art is great and it makes an interesting read but i just dont see myself wanting to read this again and again. But if you see it in a store somewhere, dont be afraid to pick it up if its really cheap. nuff said.
Probably one of the best single issue of Star Wars that i have ever seen. The art was great and the storyline and writing is so awesomely epic that you will want to read it again and again. Doesn't hurt that this issue has an great fight sequence with darth vader and a certain unexpected cool appearance of one of the baddest dudes in the galaxy. pick this ish up if you can, you definitely will not regret it.
