I'm forever indebted and grateful to Mr Claremont for, among other things, Uncanny X-Men 96-200 and for him being a genuine and affable person at conventions the couple times I met him briefly as Anonymous Fan #207,356. Also, he gave you a great interview, much better than you deserve. :P

Did you see my passive aggressive thinly-veiled gibes to him in my review? I am like the Super-Skrull, implanted with the powers of my foes. But I could tell it hurt, maybe he will quit the review group.

Spicy Dick wrote:izombie #1

Still sad about Old Man being bugled off to Jesus, but it was great to see how many people around the world will remember him. I also took it as a reminder that the words you say to someone might be more important than you think at the time, because you never know when someone may come down with a fatal case of mowing the grass, or something equally dire and unexpected. R.I.P. Alan Coil

So, that izombie, eh? Is it a contrivance of kewl thematic material (zombies, hawt vampires gone wild, rhubarb pie) crassly assembled to appeal to an "indie" comics reader, or is it a promising debut for a new Vertigo series by fan-favorite Mike Allred and less well-known (to comics fans) writer Chris Roberson?

Hard to say how the book will hold up if it goes in the direction of the crime-solving mystery like it seems to be, but I think Chris Roberson doesn't deserve the "hipster douchebag" sort of invective that gets thrown around all too often by insecure comics readers, and a lot of craft and hard work went into making the book look so damn good.

This is the writer of among other things, Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love and he and his wife run Monkeybrain Press, specializing in genre fiction and nonfiction genre studies. This isn't some guy who racked up a bunch of student loans for a useless liberal arts degree and then slacked upwards--and for those detractors, one in particular, he also wrote X-Men: The Return for Pocket Books in 2007. He is a well-respected science fiction author whose work has been nominated for many awards, and we are lucky to have him working in comics today.

So kudos to Vertigo for getting such a talent on a monthly book--hell, two talents counting Mike Allred! I don't know if the book is for me or not in the long term, but I'll give the creators the benefit of not pretentiously declaring it a fraud after one issue.

7.5

so Roberson is established huh? cool, this I did not know... anything in particular that I should read by him? I would especially be interested in anything that is as fun as this or Cinderella!

Ok, I will make another attempt to navigate the template tomorrow. I'll try to pretend it's an eBay listing.
