    I'm transferring to a mid-level state school, and it's 10x that per credit hour.

    Fuck, even my community college is around $55 per.

    I think this is a fair question and deserves our attention. Excuse me while I prepare a Powerpoint... if anyone wants to field this in the meantime, I'll bow out.

    I don't mind hardcovers for old stuff and the occasional mini-series but ongoing series only need to be released in trade format.

    I assume you mean the premier hardcovers, and not the oversized collections... because the oversized hardcovers that collect a few trades at a time are awesome.

    I believe the reason for the premier hardcovers was to mollify vendors, because Marvel were bringing out trades so quickly that there was concern it encouraged trade waiting over buying floppies. So they introduced the prem hardcovers that come out first and cost more for the people who just cannot wait, and then bring the trades out a few months later.

    You're right about the over-sized hardcovers Virral, I don't mind those. I collect Powers, Gotham Central, and probably Preacher in that format, even if the wait between volumes is sometimes ridiculous. But from a business point of view I guess I get it.

    I just read through the "No Fear" GL trade and he's in it being all weird out of nowhere.

    Black Hand used to be a horrible GL villain tracing back to the early days of Hal as GL.

    He used to quip commonplace "cliches" while pulling off his nefarious plans, suggesting that cliches held vast amounts of wisdom or something I don't know.

    Johns reinvented him to have an obsession with death (starting in "No Fear" but more clearly expressed in "Secret Origin"). He also tied Black Hand into the death of Abin Sur, sort of (also in "Secret Origin") and retroactively added his obsession with death.

    In DC UNIVERSE ZERO, just before Final Crisis, Black Hand was contacted by the mysterious power that created the Black Lantern out of the Anti-Monitor and has basically become that power's herald/chief lantern/head ballwacker/whatever

    in Blackest Night Zero he appears wearing a Black Lantern ring, which suggests he might be the only person who is still alive that can wear one, given his connection to death. Or it's a swerve and he's actually dead now too, who knows.

    It's worth pointing out that he was abducted by ALIENZ who experimented on him, giving him the ability to suck out other people's life-force in order to rejuvenate his body (i.e. the hand that Hal the Jolly Green Spectre lopped off). Kinda ties him into death a little bit more.

    I doubt they can fit the whole thing in one omnibus since it's currently around issue 70 and still going on. If you mean the Garth Ennis run I don't think that's possible either since it's 60 issues total.

    The other Raptor basically said that the gem was slowly driving Chris crazy because it's incompatible with human physiology, and thus all of the stuff that he thought he knew about the gem's history was basically made up by his deteriorating mind.

    that's a good point. at the time, the aliens never made sense. looking back... they still don't make sense. were completely random and i guess were an attempt to tie together a few of hal's villains? (hammond, shark, and black hand)

    but Johns seem to veer away from them, even though it sounded like he was setting them up to mean SOMETHING at the end of Rebirth with Hammond's cryptic remarks.

    i really hope he ties them into Blackest Night somehow. Make them, like, uh, Nekron's demon minions or something. Make it connect somehow.

    Are the Marvel Adventures books as fun as they look?

    Now that I've realized that Jeff Parker and Fred Van Lente did some work in the line early on (and then carried a similar style to their 616 stuff), and seeing Skottie Young's covers and Paul Tobin's blogs, I'm really, really curious about these books. They look hella rad.

    Yes, they are very good. S_D has them every now and then and are just fun, especially against the dark backdrop of regular Marvel.

    The early Spider-Man issues weren't good, as they were just modern retellings of old Lee stories, but now they're good.

    Question: Is the guy who does Word Balloon a bit of an ass?

    His most recent one is with Jeph Loeb, which of course brings out people commenting why he isn't a good writer, yet the WB guy posted a comment (since deleted, Matt seems to delete stuff a lot more these days to save face) about how everyone's just haters and that they're only 1% of the comics fans and how he's gotten thousands of downloads now and e-mails saying how great it is, really stroking his own ego.

    I've only ever paid attention to the one he did about the late Wieringo, and one with Winick after that crap Green Arrow/Black Canary wedding one-shot. The guy says "yeah" a lot from what I remember and really walks on eggshells with his guests.

    I'm the same way, which is why I don't really know about the guy.

    This is why those Newsarama video things done during conventions are annoying as well, especially when they're still running them weeks after the convention ended instead of just giving us transcripts (which would take just as long to transcribe).
