    Wrong kind of comics, but whatever floats your boat. [​IMG]

    I wish Amazing Spider-Man Brand New Day would have more of Mister Negative and less Freak and Menace (or yet another Green Goblin clone).

    Also...Kick Ass rules.

    Garfield is overrated.
    The Family Circus will always be my fav.

    I like Menace, though I agree with you on Freak. Though it's not the character's fault, it was the writer. Bob Gale's arc on Brand New Day was AWFUL. It read like a book that wouldn't even have been good back in the 80s. The rest, I loved, but Bob Gale needs to be taken off that book NOW.

    Has anyone read Archie & The Punisher aka The Punisher goes to Riverdale?

    Most surreal crossover ever ...

    Yeah, I remember the comic crash of 1997 ... comics had gotten so out of control, and were truly taking the piss outta the fans ... up to 6 variant covers per issue, with some comics ... money, money, money ...

    It's much like that these days, lots of crossovers, lots of variants, but there's a difference... this time the writing is actually good. I've never seen an era like this in comics; an era where I could officially say there are more A-list excellent titles at Marvel than there are poor and mediocre ones.

    Freak is just "oh shit we need to be edgy, lets have a drug addicted baddie". No need for Spider-Man to be edgy, though I did like "The Evil That Men Do".

    The only comics I've read are the ones through Civil War and up to volume 3 of The Ultimates. I don't know why I stopped.. They were pretty good.

    Oh man, Evil That Men Do. SO GOOD. Shame it took Kevin Smith literally 3 years to do the last 3 issues.

    The writing is better, thank god ... it's the only thing keeping Chapter 11 away from the door for many publishers ...

    A lot of it comes from the fact that the writers no longer feel that they ae writing for a young audience ... they are embracing the fact that most comic book readers are 21+ ...

    I was, and then I stopped when there was talk of cancellation. Did it ever move publishers?

    Another thing, what the fuck was up with Amazing Spider-Man and the whole "he did reveal himself in Civil War but erm nobody saw who was under the mask, even though his fucking enemies did and went after Aunt May & Mary Jane and all that shit." That was annoying.

    No, that's incorrect. Everything that happened in continuity happened. What happened at the end of One More Day was a memory erasing. Everyone simply forgot his identity. Everything that happened with Aunt May and Mary Jane still happened (except he and MJ were longterm dating instead of married in their memories).
