  The title is self-explanatory. How do you feel about them? I dislike them for the most part-- I teeter between not minding and actually liking the Green Lantern uniforms, Supes' less flashy Man of…Continue

Disregarding the actual comic book "series", who are your favorite characters?  My favorite comic book character of all time is Benjamin J. Grimm a.k.a The Thing.

Excluding Action Comics, I am generally within 10 issues of completing every DC "legacy" superhero title back to each run's first 15-cent issue.

Marvel, I collect more sporadically. I have the big Bronze Age books - Hulk 181, GS X-Men 1, X-men 94, ASM 129, etc. But Marvel is more a "collect-just-the-runs-that-I-like," as opposed to DC, where I'm a completist.

Lately, my interests have turned to Bronze Age horror. I'm working on high-grade runs of House of Mystery, House of Secrets, The Witching Hour and Ghosts. And I'm a handful of issues away from completing the mid-70s Marvel horror titles. (Gee, guess which issue of Werewolf by Night I'm missing?)

Chaplain Dan, you remember Creepy and Eerie, products of Warren Publishing?  That was the company that published reprints of Will Eisner's The Spirit, one of my all time favorites.  I even have a personalized sketch of the Spirit drawn by Will Eisner in which said character speaks directly to me in a word balloon.

Good to see some 2000AD fans here. That reminds me, I have to resubscribe to 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine - I dropped my sub in December and keep forgetting to renew.

I'll have to sort out my comic collection one of these days. I have every 2000AD since issue 1, back in 1977. Good times!

Do you remember the original universal soldier? The guy with the chip in his head? Or the Maniac for hire, who was sent out to save the potato king and ended up making fries out of him?

What about a movie of some of the future shocks? The platinum hoard? The taxi driver from planet Deniro? Pure gold.

A Time To Kill

     For some reason - perhaps it's just the years stacking up on me - when I look at world news lately as presented online and on television I have a hard time understanding the motives behind a good chunk of the killing and dieing going on, and more troubling to me is the cheering from the sidelines.    In Syria, a revolution started when police tortured and killed children just because they'd spray-painted some words on a wall. When a father went to the police to ask about his son, the…See More
