  1. Is this place deader than ever?

    Yup. It's been much too dry and intellectual, and could do with an infusion of random drivel. I'll get to work.
  2. Is this place deader than ever?

    I don't blame you. That was one of Andy Goldust's favourites too. Many an appearance in the Water Cooler. Great choice !
  3. Is this place deader than ever?

    Loquacious is a great word, which I like as much as ubiquitous.
  4. Is this place deader than ever?

    You beat me to it. I was going for the down-to-Earth, blue-collar, northern coal miners’ alternative of ‘Pip Pip, Old Bean !’
  5. Cloned Books

    It would be disappointing to lose that aspect, but lack of monetary value wouldn’t stop me collecting if it brought books back to real-world, ordinary, generally-affordable prices. I still care enough about the stories and art to believe I’d continue on at that modest price point. Although, there are many remastered comics I’d read preferentially, which are far superior-looking to the originals, but lacking in that aged, newsprint, old-school feel and odour. There would still be interesting choices to be made.
  6. Cloned Books

    I'm happy reading digital comics, and so if I could own one of every book I'm interested in, from GA onwards, I would also be happy with a cloned physical copy, especially from an ultra high grade source. As said, the only way it's feasible for those of us with extremely-limited budgets. I look forward to the development and perfection of replicator technology, and no longer being one bit in thrall to an inflated, monopolistic back issue market.
  7. Is this place deader than ever?

    And Viz Comic, especially for the Brits. For mockery and innuendo, on another level entirely to Mad magazine.
  8. Is this place deader than ever?

    Yup. As soon as I read that, I was alerted to the presence of a Brit. A newbie, I thought at first, but even better, a rare Gav sighting.
  9. I can relate to that. Exactly the same effect for me with the first two Lee / Ditko Amazing Spider-Man Pocket Books, as shown in the Comic Related Paperbacks thread.
  10. Actually didn't see that. Apologies for my lack of observation.
  11. Too many great Eisner Spirit covers in the Warren and Kitchen Sink runs.
  12. Comic Related Paperbacks

    I only had this pair. Mid-seventies, IIRC, and the first time I read the early Lee / Ditko Spideys in colour. Possibly a British copy, although this kind of book did get imported here. Fond memories - I recall how much I enjoyed the stories, and thanks for posting.
  13. If you were to write a comic... your go-to artist(s)

    Frazetta cover + Joe Kubert interior art would be a good choice for a wide range of genres; super-hero, western, war, horror, science-fiction, crime, sword-and-sorcery.

    One of the first to PM me, as well, soon after I joined.
