And his brother is Larry Lieber, different names.

Or just made up out of whole cloth during immigration. I remember my friend from Hong Kong trying to explain why his name became "Nicholas" and not his Chinese name.

Remember Ernie Chan? He used to have to call himself Ernie Chua in his early career Stateside due to a spelling error by an immigration official!

I have been enjoying The Unwritten, but I couldn't tell you the ongoing story and name characters or whats going on if I had to. It's odd.

Tom is doing his best to figure out his past and exactly what his father has left behind for him and whether or not his past is a lie.

See? Not that hard to remember. Great fucking book.

So...um the thread title was Review Group Week 183 - ULTIMATE COMICS AVENGERS #1. So where's the review? All I see on the first page is a summary blurb.
