Whether you read webcomics, ongoings, or even if you just stick to trades-- everyone is welcome to post their thoughts here. Unless you are a Valiant fan, if you are a Valiant fan please find somewhere else to talk about their comics, thank you for understanding.

Members in ComicsGAF are expected to follow the NeoGAF TOS just like everyone else. I know it can be hard, but try and be excellent to your fellow members guys (Except Zombine, he deserves the shit he gets).


We've been having some talk of spoilers a lot lately, so I figured it's a good idea to have a section for it.
-If you must post a spoilery panel or a page from a comic (recent or otherwise), please link to them with a proper spoiler warning.
-Please at least allow one week before posting unmarked spoilers.
-Think about whether or not you would have liked to have a moment spoiled on you before reading it. Use discretion when posting spoilers. You know people love Saga/Deadly Class try not to openly post huge spoilers even if they are months old. Link to them and tag them properly.
-Announcements/Solicitations are not spoiler worthy, no need to tag
- Don't spoiler tag images, it doesn't work on mobile so its not reliable.
-MARK YOUR SPOILERS

Here is a bit of how the sausage is made. This is a message I got from freeza.

*FYI, I swapped out Transformers-whatever-it-was for the Rom annual.
**Are we doing a Valiant section next month or no?

I am not taking the blame for this one.

Jim "James" McLauchlin, formerly of Wizard: The Comics Magazine, has done this neat extended feature titled 100 Little Known Facts About Comics

http://www.newsarama.com/32561-100-little-known-facts-about-comic-books-part-1.html

http://www.newsarama.com/32571-100-little-known-facts-about-comic-books-part-2.html

My favorite fact: "Steve Ditko was slated to draw a “Batman: Black and White” back-up story in Batman: Gotham Knights #7 written by John Arcudi. But when he got the script, which featured Batman fighting a motorcycle gang, he refused, stating only, 'Bikers are a negative element in society.' John Buscema eventually drew the story. "

You know I don't think anybody did much for comic reviews and summaries this week. She hulk and some other marvel titles but that was it.


I still gotta read monstress, cap, and infamous for this week
 
Hey Messi, that Divinity III Stalinverse book in the OT should be marked as #2. I don't know what Lunchbox was thinking leaving that out.
