    Hi guys!
    I already commended you on your facebook group, but it seems you no longer check it out. Anyway, I wanted to see if you share my opinion on a certain subject. It has recently occured to me that we are at the doorstep of a new era in the ongoing development of mainstream comics. The 90’s were the age of the artist, the early 2000s were the Age of the writer, and if things go the way they are now, the 2010s are going to be the Age of the Editor.
    Seeing how something that began as a once-in-a-lifetime thing then became a yearly tradition (the summer event), and now it is no longer an extraordinary thing but like the permanent status of mainstream titles, with one event tying into the next with little to none intervals (they sometimes even overlap) I wonder how much control of the books is left in the writers’ hands. One is hard pressed to find an issue of an iconic superhero book that is not tied with the current “world-shaking event”, so it becomes kinda like anime, where what you are getting are not individual episodes but a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong story that has been cut into 22-minute (or page) clips for the public’s and the distributor’s convenience. Every title has a subtitle and it seems every story arc of any particular book has a logo and an advertising campaign. And the reader/viewer is left with the feeling that the story could have been told in much fewer panels.
    I blame this on decompression.
    Well guys, tell me what you think and best of luck!

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but…Just want to say hi and introduce myself as afan of your Youtube videos. I came across you guys when searching for fan’s video reviews of Final Crisis #7 a while back (which I personally loved, but people’s extreme reactions to the series have been fairly hilarious!).

    This Friday just gone I was waiting for a pal to turn up at mine before we went on to a party down the road – I was getting pretty tanked up on beers and for some reason remembered you guys and decided to check out your reviews of books since then… My friend didn’t show ’till midnight but watching you guys steam-off about Brevoort, Bendis, Loeb and Quesada etc killed the time for me very nicely. You guys rock. I found myself trying to high-five you through the screen many times. It’s nice to see people as pissed about the Deadpool variant issue as I was – I even showed the video to my girlfriend to prove that I was not totally losing it over nothing a few weeks back! Your channel justifies my hatred. All is one under CCW…Heh.

    Aaanyway, despite my Marvel rage I thinkg you guys play it quite objectively and have a good sense of quality – I don’t see a DC bias, or a hate-for-hate’s-sake towards what Marvel are doing thesedays. I too thought GL 50/51 was the kind of needles event-padding that we saw a lot of during Secret Invasion, for example…And it’s nice to see you guys give props to the REALLY GOOD Marvel stuff coming out today like Fraction’s Invincible Iron Man, Hickman’s Fantastic Four, Diggle’s Daredevil and Aaron’s Wolverine: Weapon X to name a few.

    It’s not about hating Marvel, it’s about being frustrated at a handful of people who are sitting on some of the greatest comic characters in history with all this hackety-hack writing and overdone marketing crapola.

    Will try and pop in here a lot more often, If I’m welcome.

    • Thanks for the very kind words. Seems like you know exactly where we are coming from and that is very good to hear. We like good comics no matter who is publishing them and also feel the need to call BS on those individuals who are hurting this industry more than they are helping it.

      I look forward to seeing more of your comments on our videos and on here as well.
