And what about that Spider-Man graphic novel? The price is so good for that much comic that I am very tempted. $3.99 for a 389 page comic seems good - as long as it is not utter poo poo.
To clarify, it's not one comic, it's a chunk of Amazing Spider-Man plus some Venom, so 13 single issues. That is a good price, though.

I would agree with the Silver Age article on wikipedia that basically says the end began with the O'Neil/Adams run on Green Lantern, but definitely finished with the murder of Gwen.

I saw a thing today about how Storm's upcoming series is the first time she's ever had an ongoing solo book and I was wondering, how many other X-Men have gotten their own ongoing? There's obviously Wolverine and the current Magneto series but I couldn't really think of anyone else.
Cable, Emma Frost, Gambit, Havok, Mystique, Nightcrawler, Rogue, X-23...and then there's been a whole assload of 4-issue minis for almost everyone.

Some of it was really interesting like the issue about Element Girl.

Mr. Mxyzptlk
nosyarG ciD/Larry
Superman Prime
The First Lantern/Volthoom

Keep in mind that nearly all of that is bad.
Gillen's Uncanny AvX issues were fantastic and were better than the event deserved.

Schism is worth checking out if only for the art at least (and it's short, so no commitment). It wasn't a bad read, either!, I thought.

I think I kind of enjoyed Consequences as I was reading it, but I honestly don't remember any of it now. I was also distracted by Cyclops' Lecter goggles.

The ROM thing is a good example of something that baffles me about fandom. There's no chance a new ROM book would be anything like the old ROM book. Neither of the original creators would be working on it, which you think would be the draw for people nostalgic about the old book. But apparently that doesn't matter; just having the property back gets them all excited. It's weird.
I agree completely. The original series was obviously a passion project of Mantlo and Buscema's. I think people really just want easy-to-buy Ultimate Editions of the original run.

- Couldn't tell you

- Kind of? They're nerfed, alternate versions of their original WS characters (Apollo and Midnighter started off in the DCNu not even knowing each other, Midnighter had/has? a spike chinstrap...it's all dumb.)

DC's Stormwatch was a terrible comic and I stopped reading like 3 issues in, so if anything eventually interesting happened, beats me.
