  1. I’ve never had any kind of fondness for Captain America. To me, he’s always been a giant, walking endorsement of performance enhancing drugs. A less monstrous version of Lance Armstrong. There was nothing special about him, so he had to cheat to become special. “Super Soldier Serum”? Bah! That’s just fancy talk for anabolic steroids. He didn’t have to work for what he got, he was simply given it.

    And don’t get me started on his whole ra ra America angle, and that whole schtick. Just remember what John Mason, a man of actual skill and talent pointed out in The Rock: “Patriotishm ish the virtue of the vicious, according to Oshcar Wilde.”

  2. WHAT?! PDFs SUCK for reading digital comics you guys! it reinterprets the colors from the original art desaturating it, PLUS that format rasterizes the hell out of those pages and you get all this digital artifacting, like it was a JPEG, that you’re probably not noticing because your not zooming really close to the pages. even when they’re supposed to be high quality they’re still poor quality in contrast to a CBZ or CBR because those come straight from the original art files with only compression to make them into a single file. no artifacting no rasterizing no color degradation. just saying, if you love the art, treat it right.

  3. Ask Hank: Hank, have you ever read The Boys by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson? If so, what is your opinion on the book’s take on Supes (super heroes)?

  4. Looking forward to your take on Civil War. It was weird seeing so much of it set in Berlin and right outside my house. Fun movie though!

  5. Ask Hank: I just recently finished Star Trek TNG for the first time and loved it. Are there any Star Trek comics you’d recommend?

  6. Back around 2010 I bought the first Brubaker Cap omnibus and my love for the character grew by leaps and bounds. I’ve since read through almost his entire run (on the final omnibus presently), and devoured a Avengers books starring the Star Spangled Man with a Plan. I couldn’t be happier with his movie series and I am beyond excited for Civil War.

  7. Ask Hank: If/when you guys read comics digitally, do you prefer guided view or full page layouts? Personally I usually like to see the full page to emulate what a real comic is like but I’d be lying if I said sometimes the guided view can make a book more engaging and cinematic. This is especially true for books with beautiful art.
