    Talkative?
  1. This board has all types of problems, but it is policed albeit some think too much and other think too little. Its a work in progress. We regulate sellers, we out con artists, we have kudos threads, we do great work for board members when they have traumatic life events.(Death, cancer, fires, floods, etc....) I've been fortunate to be a part of several. We share ideas, we send an action figure around all over the country, we help to raise money for events and so on... We had writers on here, artists and publishers. A large amount of money changes hands on this board weekly and for the most part most transactions go well. Love it or hate it its the model for most boards in the comic hobby.(Whether they admit it or not.) Well said

  5. This book someday will be regarded as one of the best written of the time. If you aren't reading this you are seriously missing out
  6. Motor Girl # 1 is sold out at Diamond. Can't wait for Moore's new book tomorrow
  7. List of why Marvel books are loosing readership, My opin Rehashing the same old story lines. Completely changing the characters we grew up reading. Attempting to sell books based on events rather than good story. Forcing readers to buy multiple books just to follow a story line Basically ignoring what made them successful to start with, providing their customer with a well written story based on characters we love
  8. Ok Here's one coming first week of November, really looking forward to this with Rachel Rising ending Terry Moore will be putting all his efforts into this , and it sounds like it could be fun. Coming from Abstract Studio, not sure how easy it will be to find at LCs so you may want to look early. Was told not much left at diamond. comicbook.com BCool
  9. Lost Boys #1 DC Comics: October 12, 2016 Writer: Tim Seeley Art: Scott Godlewski Cover: Tony Harris The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the '80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys. Veteran horror writers Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, NIGHTWING, Hack/Slash), and Scott Godlewski (THE DARK & BLOODY, Copperhead) deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987! Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to 'normal' after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven's head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael's love interest and their lost sister, Star.

  12. Some big names here, unfortunately its a mini Frostbite #1 DC Comics: September 28, 2016 Writer: Joshua Williamson Art: Jason Shawn Alexander Cover: Jason Shawn Alexander Cover Price: $3.99 UPC: 76194133988700111 Diamond ID: JUL160428 GCIN: 959320 Long after Earth has entered its second ice age, humanity has learned to cope with the frozen elements. In this cold and bleak future, heat is power, and brutal gangs roam the icy wasteland looking for it. If that wasn't enough, a terrible disease nicknamed 'frostbite' is literally freezing people from the inside out. Once you catch it, the effect is instantaneous. There is no immunity, there is no cure. Until now. Doctor Henry Bonham and his daughter Victoria have found the key to ending frostbite. If they can get from Mexico City to a secret government outpost in Alcatraz, they could stabilize life across the globe. But to do that they'll need to stay alive. That's where Keaton comes in. She and her crew have faced worse journeys before, but never with the potential consequences this one poses if they fail. A new miniseries from acclaimed writer Joshua Williamson (The Flash: Rebirth; Nailbiter) and artist Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone; BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY), FROSTBITE is a science-fiction action miniseries unlike any other.
