Clone Saga: Part 2

The Clone Saga gets more complicated in this issue of Ultimate Spider-Man, but is this a good thing? The 90’s Clone Saga turned many readers off because, well… it was complicated. However, Bendis seems hell bent on fixing the story and making it intriguing, exciting, and fun.

Batman 655: Does Morrison Pull It Off?

I’m not a huge Grant Morrison fan, but I don’t hate him either. To me if you can tell a good story that has me eagerly turning from one page to the next in anticipation, then the writer has done a great job. But in the case of Morrison’s debut on the Batman title, I have to say I’m truly conflicted.

ComicBase Express Reviewed

Inexpensive way to organize your collection –by Stephen Schleicher If you have a large number of comics you need to keep track of, but don’t have a lot of money to spend, check out ComicBase Express. This entry level program gives you access to titles and helps you organize your comic book collection. I’ve previously raved about the ComicBase Archive edition on this site, but I think the $250 price tag caused a lot of people to shy away – instead spending their valuable money on new issues and titles.

Through the Bins

A guide to NE Kansas comic shops –by Stephen Schleicher I spent the weekend going to several comic book shops in the Kansas City, Lawrence, and Topeka areas. I scored quite a load of comics, filled many holes in my ever growing collection, and picked up a few extras along the way. There are some good shops, some bad shops, and a few really great shops for you to snag your favorite current and back issues.

Clone Saga Part 1

–by Stephen Schleicher Love it or hate it, the Clone Saga has made its way to the Ultimate universe. The controversial series from the mid 90s (or 70s depending on which one you think of first), turned the industry upside down and had many fans decrying and cheering at the same time. Well true believers, it looks like it is back in Ultimate Spider-Man #97.
