LOL it shows years ago as a child my father made me choose between Marvel and DC because he didn't think I should be trying to get everything under the sun. And of course I went with DC. But like you also said, the Marvel Universe overall just doesn't thrill me. But I make sure to get the stuff that does.
But yeah, DC 4 LIFE!

I don't know if you got to read my opinion abot Saga.
You can do it here:

And I need to ask you a favor. Could you please click on the ad that is being displayed right under the followers box? I need to make sure if it's working properly. Just click on it and that's it.
I've never tried those bundles. Usually I'm interested in 2 or 3 books tops, I don't know what would I do with all that extra stuff...
by Midas » Thu Feb 13, 2014 9:06 pmSorry! I'm using my work computer. It's bad enough I come to this sight but I can't be clicking on random ads...
But I did read your review. Great review, as usual. While the depth you discuss (social commentary and allegory and all) is absolutely in the story, I like it because it's just fun. The characters introduced the the first trade are all likeable and easy to root for. I was put off by the preview art, and agree with you that it looks "rushed" or "stylized" but I've grown accustomed to it and now can't imagine the book being drawn by anyone else. Hopefully it stays strong into Volume 2 and beyond. I'm definitely looking forward to reading it.

You truly are a tolerant man. I couldn't get used to the art and after a couple of issues I stopped buying Saga. I loved the story but I didn't like the art.
by Midas » Sun Feb 16, 2014 12:30 amHah! Me and all the other thousands that buy this, apparently. I call the art an acquired taste. Now I can't imagine any other art working for this story...

Indeed. At least over 50,000 readers are faithfully following Saga.

Realized I never did respond to this (cause it was hidden in the Saga talk).....Yeah in my case with the bundles its only the 2 or 3 books that I didn't want, where the majority are ones I do. So it works for me in that sense. So for now, I'll have issues of Scooby Doo, Minimum Wage, and Stray Bullets issues that I won't know what to do with that I'll just take in to the store. LOL oh and copies of Dead Boy Detectives and American Vampire.
Actually I read Minimum Wage. I thought it wasn't bad. Not enough to want to continue buying it, but I'll read em as they come in, then put them in the "take em to the store" pile.
by Midas » Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:54 amWhat!!! Stray Bullets is worthless to you!?! You philistine! How dare you!
Not your thing, huh? Different strokes I guess... I'm not saying it's "fun" or anything. In fact, reading the good issues of SB is like getting punched in the gut. But it makes me think and the stories linger in my mind. I find it powerful stuff.
by Arion » Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:20 pm
I want Dead Boy Detectives and American Vampire ! Now you know what so send me as a birthday present.
But seriously, like I said before, I prefer individual discounts, and if it's 75% off that's even better.
