Re: What comics are you reading now?

Reading the Paul Dini Batman Omnibus. Excellent self contained stories that include enough to contribute to a larger story arc. So far the only bad issues are the ones which were part of the "Resurrection of Ras Al Ghul." It is very apparent how "forced" the crossover detracted from Dini's writing.

Re: (Re-)Reading Acclaim

One general acclaim item I am interested about is the Turok TPB advertised (not the acclaim adventure zone issues). Did it ever get released? Besides the Q&W trades that had been published, all other Acclaim trades were only solicited but never released (Solar, Turok, XO). The Turok trade would hav...

Re: (Re-)Reading Acclaim

After that it was mostly just a big ol’ pile of fine. The individual issues were engaging enough, but ...

Re: another unseen VH1 item..

I've always been a big VH1 Ninjak fan. I remember getting excited about the series solely from the Quesada/Palmiotti advertisement artwork in Previews, Wizard, etc.

I guess we will see if there is a big Q/P fan out there.

I've got so much back reading to do that it's entirely probable that I never will read Trinity Angels all the way through. I just recently replie...

1/5 - Very poor book, put this alongside Bloodshot as more examples of the current editors ineptitude in how to run the company from a creative perspective.
With all of the delays in comics, I am impressed you waited for this one.

Anyone else reading The Three Jokers? Being in Japan, I have only received the first two issues and am waiting for issue three. The first two issues kept me entertained both had a nice shocker at the end of each issue.
