"I recently finished Rage by Zygmunt Miłoszewski. A Polish crime novel, that was pretty good. Unsurprisingly a little depressing. It stars a Polish prosecutor named Teodor Szacki, who gets involved in a case when a skeleton is…"

"Well, Priest will still be writing Deathstroke as a monthly, so I'll still likely be buying it.  There's a chance I'll pull back from Wonder Woman for a few issues, during the 5-issue interim between Rucka and the next permanent…"

"Oh, good -- I'm glad you enjoyed it!The scene with Jughead eating that massive all-you-can-eat sandwich was my favorite part of it. I guess the thing that disappointed me the most is the Walsh art -- it looked fine, but I'd have much…"

"I think I did like it more than you did, somewhat. Yes, it seems to be trying to fill in the inexplicable gap between issues of Afterlife With Archie and Sabrina, but I thought it looked good and the story was decent. When I bought it, I thought it…"

Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"Well...I hope you like it more than I did. It's not horrible or anything -- it just feels like a space-filler and a cash grab to me. I think I would've been better off just buying a hamburger and thinking about Jughead as I ate it."

"I recently dropped all f the Archie titles. Oddly (and I know this is a bad reason), I made this decision based on the 10 minutes of Riverdale that I saw. I think I had planed to continue the Mark Waid one, but when the last issue shipped I forgot.…"
