    Social Thread: Invigorating your insides

    I wouldn't have thought there were more than one nuclear DNA recomberination jobs out there, No one who saw you with my kids at WW2 in Chicago believes that.

    State of Comic Industry

    Rising prices killed it once and it doesn't look like anyone learned that lesson. I think we even have an old thread about rising prices in comics in here somewhere. One might argue that given the age of that discussion alone it's not a valid concern but I don't know. Thinking back to when the...

    James Gunn is back on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 It's hard to talk about this without courting controversy, but this is great news. He was essentially forced out thanks to the work of alt-right trolls, and it was largely retaliatory. His...

    Are you overall satisfied with how the MCU is?

    Jessica Alba is not a great actress, and her performance in Fantastic Four was pretty terrible. I don't know what to call what she it overacting? My kids used to watch the Spy Kids movies and she is in at least one of those and it's the same thing - she is trying so hard to act that it...

    Hi there!

    I started collecting around age 12 I think; early-90s when comics really started exploding in popularity and even small towns had 2 or even 3 comic shops. I drifted away after the excesses of the later 90s made it almost impossible for a Jr. High-aged kid to collect comics. I got back into...

    Pick your team...

    Not much of a DC guy but if you can add Green Lantern for $3 AND Captain Marvel for $1 a piece it makes it hard to pass up. Superman (5) Batman (4) Green Lantern (3) Shazam (1) Wonder Woman (2) <- agreed - major value there

    Are you overall satisfied with how the MCU is?

    X-Men 3 - that was rough. I would never have thought we could get something as good as Iron Man after that stinker. Or the first Fantastic Four. I couldn't even attempt the second one.

    Best tablet?

    I'd say it's worth looking into, for sure. But ultimately you have to decide if - beyond reading comics - you need the PC functionality that the Surface offers, or if the iPad is better. I replaced my MacBook Pro AND iPad Mini with the Surface, so it was for more than just reading comics. I...
