    I'd Like To Be First To Say,,

    by pr1c3y

    I jerked it and came hard to the Kristen Stewart preview.

  • June 28, 2010, 9 a.m. CST

    Another D&D comic, huh?

    by letsfightinglove

    I like the callback to the old AD&D Player's Handbook cover. But, wouldn't a gnoll know what an elf looks like?

  • June 28, 2010, 9:18 a.m. CST

    It's Schwarzenegger, not Schwartzeneggar

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    I know, it's a complicated name, but it's even spelled in huge letters on the comic you are previewing!

  • June 28, 2010, 9:44 a.m. CST

    does anyone read comics anymore

    by sith_rising

    that's under the age of 35? as far as I can tell, they just read manga

    OT: Thanks for I Kill Giants!

    by Dave I

    This has nothing to do with the comics in THIS review, but I recall reading about I Kill Giants from this site, checked it out, and found it great! It is a title I would never have been aware of, and the cover art would probably not have caught my eye nor revealed how powerful a story was inside. Just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the heads up. It was SUCH a great comic, and without gushing too much really a better story and much more moving than I expected. Flat out awesome! A bit late to the party, but belated or not thanks for the review even if it did take me a while to get around to checking it out. <p><p>-Cheers

  • June 28, 2010, 9:54 a.m. CST

    sith_rising; I'm 32

    by Dave I

    I read comics, usually graphic novels or TPBs, but yeah I try to. It's sporadic, sometimes selective, but yeah I still love the medium. <p><p>-Cheers

    Quick question for any wandering @$$holes..

    by Thalya

    Anyone been reviewing Giffen's Doom Patrol - particularly #6 (the Larry ish)? Just curious whether it's futile to go archive-searching back 6 months or not.

  • June 28, 2010, 10:46 a.m. CST

    Dave I: Same here

    by Mr_Sinister

    I thought I Kill Giants was excellent! Gotta read it again soon...

    sith_rising

    by The Penultimate Gunslinger

    I'm in my mid-twenties and read comics, but my 16 year-old bro and my step bro are both Manga-addicts, so I see your point. Apparently Captain America just isn't "cool" enough for the youth of today. Those fools!

  • June 28, 2010, 12:30 p.m. CST

    what?

    by IAmLegolas

    They made a comic about that TWILIGHT chick and her uncomfortablity with the limelight?

  • June 28, 2010, 12:56 p.m. CST

    Only small children and hipsters read mangas.

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    Not saying they all suck, but it's true.

  • June 28, 2010, 1:17 p.m. CST

    sith_rising and RedEgiraahgnal

    by Kontarsky

    RedEgiraahgnal - Otakus too. Wankers sit in the middle of aisles at bookstores almost tripping people, because they're too lazy to find a chair to sit in. Some were even wearing cat ears.<p>sith_rising - In my 20s. Read comics quite a bit in my early years, late teens, and early 20s, but recent shoddy writing has turned me off to most of the series I liked reading (Thor, Captain America, Starman, Batman stuff).

  • June 28, 2010, 1:23 p.m. CST

    Siekiewicz should do every cover for...

    by Jaka

    ...Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep? And why hell can't somebody make a good D&D comic? It's so open, with so many possibilities, it should be incredibly easy. Oh well. Maybe next time.

  • June 28, 2010, 1:57 p.m. CST

    Fareal

    by kungfuhustler84

    Because if everybody had that attitude, I'm not sure comic creators could make enough money to continue making those comics you so readily read for free. I myself have realized I couldn't possibly pay for all the comics I want to read, but I think it's rude to go into a store, sit around for an hour or two, and then just not buy anything. If you really enjoy reading all those comics weekly, finding one book and supporting it financially wouldn't be that hard would it?

    Wizard

    by hallmitchell

    I heard Wizard are having a revamp. I hope that gets previewed. Mark Millar as guest editor.

  • June 28, 2010, 2:51 p.m. CST

    While I don't agree with Fareal...

    by Jaka

    ...I don't think the blame is his. No, the blame rests squarely on whatever store is allowing that behavior to happen. They need to train their employees to have an understanding of the situation and the balls to take care of it. But that's not the world we live in anymore. Customer service in those bigger stores consists of apathy towards the consumer because they're interrupting a conversation that was taking place with a co-worker. I can assure you most LCS don't let that kind of mess take place.

    D&D looks pretty good!

    by Spacelab

    nice to see this title focused on gameplay ideas. Have a rotating cast of characters and creators, and it could be awesome. one idea for that title: Just like marvel's recent Iron Fist title, have the names of the attacks appear, so people can use those in tabletop gameplay. (ex: "bull rush attack," "sword dancing" etc.)

    The Origin of Arnold Schwarzenegger!

    by Amazing Maurice

    Fucking brilliant idea!<P>Someone buy the movie rights!

  • June 28, 2010, 6:46 p.m. CST

    The D&D looks pretty good? Really?!

    by Jaka

    I respect your opinion - to each their own. But I think it looks about four steps past completely awful.

  • June 28, 2010, 7:57 p.m. CST

    velocity...

    by sonnyhooper

    ....is a fine piece of comic book ass. <p> what? <p> she is. you just can't go wrong with a green outfit on a red-head.

    Baron Von Shock

    by v1cious

    Issue 1 was surprisingly good. A lot better than one would expect.
