Re: Which character has had the best run (reply)
Hey Banky,Like what you like, that's cool. Its all personal preference anyway.You ignored everything prior to Miller and then skipped to Bendis. What about prior to Miller? What about between Miller and Bendis? At least I cited every...

GI JOE SNAKE EYES AGENT OF COBRA TPB - Thanks to spotty distribution I had to switch from the monthly issues to the trade. A good story all around. I liked the subtly at the end which revealed which side Snake Eyes is really on. This...

Re: Which character has had the best run (reply)
Looking strictly at the first three volumes of AVENGERS, I would say that, on the whole, it had more good than bad compared to any other "character or team book" during that same time frame.

Re: How about Wonder Woman by Perez?  (reply)
Got mine today. It looks great! Highly recommended! I am not bothered by the lack of Action 600; Perez did not pencil it, so to include it would be a bonus, not a necessity. If you are on the fence about buying this omnibus, get off the...

Re: Onslaught Omnibus (reply)
I must admit that I am tempted to by this omnibus, but I keep thinking that I gave all those issues away for a reason. I think it was the whole "Xavier's dark side" concept that bothered me. Still might buy this if the price drops below...
