Indeed. I still enjoy looking through his FF back issues.

I think that nowadays his art looks dated, and his work on Star Trek looks good because it can't look dated there.

I have a question to those reading Buffy and Angel. Does Spike come out in any of those titles?

Spike appears in Angel, and he's in a dream sequence in Buffy. But remember that Buffy takes place at the same time as Angel TV season 4, so there probably won't be any real Spike appearances in Buffy SEason 8.

It doesn't! It takes place after Season 5 of Angel. (Remember, Seaon 5 of Angel begins two weeks after Sunnydale's collapse).

Well, darnit, I got my nummers wrong. Yes, Angel had 5 seasons. But are yo usure that Buffy season 8 takes place AFTER Angel Season 5? Seems we'd have some reference to what happened the LA if that were the case.

I'm pretty sure that Buffy 8 takes place alongside Angel 5, and that Buffy 8 in fact begins before episode 520, where Spike and Angel visit Rome.

IIRC, Whedon has said that Season 8 happens a year and a half after the fall of Sunnydale...

Am I gonna enjoy it as much as I did the Waid\Ringo stuff? Until then I had pretty much no time at all for the F4 but I've kept an open mind about them since.

Maybe if I gte real bored in 'nam I'll fire up a download. No need to give Marvel any reason to think the asshat's profitable...
As for Angel, I'm on the threshold of dropping it anyway, because it's been too much fanservice and not enough interesting. Oh and the art! :roll:

I agree with nieto. Nobody, but nobody, did a better Doctor Doom than Byrne.

Probably because they have so much in common. :smt081
