Yeah, I'm sure they've got access to that in the staff writer's forum here too, Boom isn't shy about sending stuff out. Of course, the second they get a vaginal flatulence reference in their Mickey Mouse kids book review from Yoni they might wise up.

I know the site has access to it, but I might be able to help out folks that can't obtain it. We'll see. That's all I can do, if I can make it so one of those two books can be read by everyone, I would rather go with them. BJ is a gn so I won't bother putting in effort with a company I have not been kind to.

Amazing Spider-man #615 is the start of A Sandman story written by Fred Van Lente and drawn by Javier Pulido.

X-Factor #200 is the start of a kinda new direction for the book (though it is $4.99)

To paraphrase the old Oldsmobile commercial: This is not you grandfather's WDC&S.

If it gets picked, I have no problem with that, but it is not the anthology it used to be. As best as I can see, it is a continuing story of the Disney superheroes. And I may be wrong about it being continued stories. It might be 1 story per issue.

You knew he was coming back... you don't yet know how... so it is anti-climatic to see him even though you knew it?


Hey that is just my opinion yo, I am not losing sleep over it and I will still read Reborn but the fact that Cap is showing up in other books makes me a little less excited about it :smt102

Iron Man review

I've enjoyed IIM since issue one but it's not without it's faults. I do feel like the arcs are a bit long and very drawn out. Specifically the Most Wanted arc felt like it's been going on forever with only a handful of big things happening. The art also can be hit or miss at times but overall it brings a unique feel to the book which is a good thing imo. I will also echo the sentiment that although seeing Steve back was awesome, it just felt weird. I had been hoping for some epic return before seeing him interact with everyone but I feel cheated on that.

Also, there was a lot of dialogue in this book that got a little boring at times. Fraction did this in last months issue as well with those panels with Tony speaking to the camera. It almost feels like Fractions using dialogue for the sake of using dialogue and not with the intent of moving things along.

Overall I felt this was a weaker issue when compared to the rest of the run but it was still good enough to keep me interested.

Story 6.5
Art 7
Overall 6.75
