"Yeah, kryptonite was rare in the radio show but the sequence that introduced it was 76 episodes long! It started with "The Meteor from Krypton" (June 1943), where Lois reveals the existence of the mineral and its properties, and it is…"
"I've read that if Sony fails to make a Spider-Man standalone movie in a six-year period, the rights will revert to Marvel/Disney. I don't know if it's true, but it would explain the rush to make Amazing Spider-Man so quickly after…"
"Read the penultimate Eerie this week. I was surprised at how many artists I could name before checking the credits. These books are where I first saw Rudy Nebres, E.R. Cruz, Estaban Maroto and many others, and the Li'l Capn's brain…"
"Which era of Superman? Luthor used it first in the Golden Age, I think. I vaguely recall Professor Lang finding it in an issue of Superboy in the Silver Age, where Clark added it to his rock collection, and got sick at night since he was sleeping…"
"Turns out I really need these summaries, because my comics shop sold out of Powers of X #1-2, while having tons of House of X #1-2. That makes no sense to me. Why would so many people buy half the story? Anyway, that means I have to order Powers of…"

"It seems to follow a pattern on the show that I don't know to be deliberate, but appears to my eye. And that is the elimination of super-powered characters -- or at least ones requiring F/X. Firestorm, the Hawks, now Atom, all gone. And even…"
"I had the same experience with a Showcase Presents: World's Finest volume, where important text on the cover of one issue was in red ink on the original, and was simply a white space in the B&W collection. I went online to mycomicshop.com…"
"You know, I'd sure like to see Spidey stay with Marvel Films, but Sony is a business and Spider-Man is their biggest property. They're not about to hand him/it over. Maybe something will materialize down the road, but I'm not counting…"
Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.
