Re: What comics are you reading now?

Still madly obsessed with Immortal Hulk. Simply the most rewarding read for a long time Hulk fan like me. I also just got a second fan letter printed in issue #42!!! I thought the first time I got one in Immortal Hulk #35 was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill to achieve - a second one in such a short time...

Re: Iron Man #1 1968

Congrats on that, nycjadie! I love that issue for its cover just as much as IMJ. I recently got a limited edition screenprint poster of the cover that is approximately 16x24 in size - the image really is so iconic and looks fantastic as a large print! I have owned a copy twice in my lifetime - got a...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

I picked up some of the TMNT trades from IDW on Comixology. And those books are actually really good. Probably gonna follow the series in trade now. That series is quite good! I have read up to around issue #25 or so to date. I was a tad too old for the era of TMNT cartoons and toys etc, but I have...

The X-O armor "upgrade" of DNA produced a new armor, so to speak, with an immense power shock.

"Produced a new..." = Birth

Re: G.I. Joe art recommendation

Jason Edmiston is a pretty great pro commercial artist who has done spoof card art before in the flavour of GI Joe - I have a print lying around somewhere of Jason Voorhees done up as a GI Joe card back figure. He does a lot of package artwork for collectible toys these days. Not sure if he’d take o...

Impressive price on the Magnus cover - I was watching that and the two BWS Solar pages in that auction. I didn't really expect to be able to afford either of the BWS Solar pages, but I was honestly surprised they both went that high! Also, super glad to hear that Dino got both of them - they couldn...

Re: Done with comics

Bad Idea is something I want to get behind, but I still don't see any easy way to get the books. Right now I'd have to drive about 5 hours round-trip for the nearest shop and I'm definitely not doing that. Maybe Ed will offer some more ... that I can do. Stuff like the Hero Trade is pretty unobtain...

Re: New Ninjak series by Jeff Parker and Javier Pulido

Maybe they are doing something different because there is a dearth of creators that will work with Valiant after cutting out the original creators of VEI.

I'm curious if you're into the alternative movie poster scene at all, IMJ... there is a pretty dedicated collector-fan base for it. If not familiar, its basically modern artists doing very limited run screen prints featuring new artwork that is officially licensed by the film studios. They typically...
