Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Though The Doctor has been through a number of incarnations since the television show debuted 50 years ago, the announcement that Matt Smith is stepping down, once again has the Intardwebz in a kerfuffle. But the prospect of the How and Why and What Happens Next should be a bigger draw than that bemoan the fact that change is occurring…right?

    Cat mentioned discussing the best runs in comics after mentioning Geoff Johns ending on Green Lantern. That would be an excellent poll of the week!

    The 70s were the peak of my comic buying years and I loved Power Man and Iron Fist. Because I loved Blaxploitation and Kung Fu movies. This comic was made for me.

    And I love Luke’s original costume, so much so that I actually cosplayed it at a convention, even though I’m a ginger.
