With all due respect to Joe Mad, I think Ryan Stegman is way better suited to this. I enjoyed the first issue well enough, but didn't pick up the second or third; I think I'll be back on board for this.

I appreciate that ComicVine never mentions Harper is handicapped, in the headline of the article or the content. Like, "Archie Comics announces a new character" as opposed to "Archie Comics announces a new disabled character", which is how most news sites seem to be writing their headlines.

But yeah, as someone in a wheelchair, the picture of Archie sitting in her lap strikes me as bewilderingly tone deaf. That's... not okay. Super disrespectful. They get points for trying, I guess.

Mike McKone's a super cool dude, met him at this year's Wizard World. Even got him to do a super awesome Adam Strange sketch that hangs above my computer!

@humanrocket: Ah, whoops! It's late, I guess; too tired to notice it was a joke. =P

The art here looks super cool. It kind of reminds me of Katsuhiro Otomo, in a weird way. Very 80's anime sci-fi. I dig it.

The "adult onesie" bit seems to be lost. It was just a black screen. Intentional, or... ?

Kind of seemed like Marc had other places to be...

@transformers1024: It's explained in (the currently ongoing?) opening arc of Amazing X-Men.

Really surprised by the results. Nightcrawler will always be #1 in my heart though.

Real talk: when I was a small baby child, I spent a lot of time in the hospital and stuff, had a ton of surgeries, and nearly died a lot. But one very vivid memory I have is spending an entire day doing nothing but thinking about getting out so I could go buy a Nightcrawler action figure. And of course that is exactly what I did.

I've never been one to give too much thought to escapism or anything, despite loving comics and video games and stuff, but that is one specific situation where I am pretty sure Nightcrawler, a fictional superhero, made a very real impact on my young self.
