Hello Midtown Blogger League of America! (or wherever you’re from!), Raph here this week and I got some twee views as well as something different. I thought I’d get into a little something we fanboys (and girls) like to do: talk about our favorite things in comics. This time, I want to take a look at some alternate realities, particularly with the Ultimate Universe going through major upheaval and the DCU being re-written in Flashpoint… I wanted to look at some universes and tales that I’ve enjoyed in the four color founts of fun that are comics… gotta get this Stan Lee Alliteration bug out of my system…
Another star spotted at Midtown Comics! This time it was Andrew Garfield who will be playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Garfield was spotted at Midtown’s Time Square location shopping for Spider-Man back issues! Could this be more research for the role? The Amazing Spider-Man will hit theaters July 3rd 2012 and stars along side Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Irrfan Khan, and C. Thomas Howell.

Hello Midtown Bloggerines, I’m back this week to give you some Twee-views (Comic Reviews in 140 characters or less), and talk about something near and dear to most of our hearts: characters we love that no one else does. Read the rest of this entry »
In my 14 years of reading and collecting comics, as well as work in a comic book store, one of the most common complaints I’ve heard (and sometimes delivered myself) is lateness in comics. Whether it’s an intentional pushing back of the title, a late page, a late script or a last second disaster, comic book fans deal with lateness all of the time, yet still the clarion call is delivered “OFF WITH (Enter Creator’s Name)’S HEAD!” “THEY SHOULDN’T DO COMICS!” “THEY SHOULD WRITE/DRAW FASTER!” This debate could rage on for days, weeks even. What I’d like to do, is just draw your attention to some books that have been late, have had huge names work on them, and decide for yourself if the wait was worth it.
