just about everything spider-man after OMD. That story line has destroyed the character for me.

I'd love to see Azarello and Risso take a crack at him.

Over the years I've realized that comic books don't have that many prominent reviewers as far as the medium is concerned- especially when you think of the number of reviewers that video games and movies have.

So I've decided to post about some of my favorite comic book reviewers and I'd love to see your picks as well if you have any.

1. Blowshimselfupdude/Browncoat Eric

- He doesn't make as many videos as he used to, but Browncoat Eric is my go to reviewer when it comes to comic trades. He's very opinionated, but his opinions are always fun to listen to.

2. Geekvolution

- Geekvolution does single issues more than trades, but if you're looking a channel with a great variety of videos and intelligent discussions than look no further

3. Real Manos

Like Browncoat Eric, The Real Manos hasn't made as many videos as he used to. With that said, Manos does have a nice backlog of older single issue reviews, along with insightful comments on various comic book related issues.

It does for me, but I agree- it depends on the person.

@project_worm: Indeed it used to be, feels like a lifetime ago though. Thanks, I really appreciate that.

@iragexcudder

Yeah, google maps has helped me a bit. I'm looking into Comix Revolution, Challengers Comics and Keith's Comics at the moment. Was just hoping to hear some overwhelming praise towards one particular comic shop, though knowing my luck it probably would be toward Graham Cracker....

I'm not sure if that was meant to be a joke or not, but I'm not much of a fisher lol. Not above giving it a shot though.

@The_Deathstroker

Gotcha, well that stinks especially.

Wow this thread blew up, kind of reminds me of the old days again.

@capfanboy

lol well I appreciate that Cap, I'll figure out something to do with this site soon enough

@wolverine08

Thanks for the heads up on Challengers Comics. That shop looks pretty cool, I'll definitely check it out.

@iragexcudder

I wish I could go to Graham Cracker Comics all the time, but the transit cost would be too much to make it worth it.

@The_Deathstroker

What kind of issues? Do you use Comixology?

@capfanboy:

I've been doing pretty well. I graduated college in May, so I'm looking for real world job and such (real fun stuff). As for your other question, I think I will. I've certainly missed the site, though I'll have to figure out what to do here at some point.

@The_Deathstroker:

How's Magneto? I checked out the first two issues of Moon Knight and dug it, though I'm primarily a trade buyer so I decided to finish the rest up when it hits trade.

@The_Deathstroker:

Fair enough, what books do you pick up digitally?

@capfanboy:

Hey man, long time no see! I just popped back on yesterday so you didn't miss me for long. How have you been?

@darthaznable:

Hyde park sounds pretty awesome regardless. I may have to check that one out when I'm around that area. I've been looking into some stores through google maps and such, just figured I'd see if any of the more frequent viners knew of one in particular that's better than the others.

I'm considering giving this one called Keith's comics a shot.

@The_Deathstroker: Either way I appreciate the welcoming. I checked one store downtown called Graham Cracker Comics, they were awesome but sadly I need to find a place that's a bit closer.
