  1. I think I’d like this reviews slightly better if they were a bit shorter, just a little nugget to fit into a work break (lately been doing a lot of writing, so podcasts during work doesn’t really work at the moment).

  2. You made a good point about the price of comics. I had to drop a lot of titles last year because I just couldn’t afford them all anymore, and eventually I had to drop all of them. I’d always hoped I’d be able to start buying comics again, but if the publishers’ goal is to try getting $4.99 or $5.99 an issue, I’m out; I just can’t afford that.

    If the prices keep going up like this, do you think we’ll see the end of printed single issue comics in the near future? Can super heroes survive without comics to keep the characters alive between movies (or between cartoons that get cancelled after a season or two?)
