Do you mean the current Mark Waid run? If so, agreed. Might just be the single best title that Marvel's putting out right now.

Yeah, Comixology had to end the sale early as their servers were crippled - people couldn't even access existing non-Marvel sale content that they'd already bought.

I still think Comixology is a...

Which day of the week does your comic shop receive new issues?

I'm specifically talking about the latest, weekly US deliveries (Marvel, DC, Image etc).

I know some UK comic shops get them on Wednesdays but other are still Thursday or Friday.

Yes, I know what you mean. It somewhat diminished the significance of what happened at the end of Amazing #700. I would have preferred it if Dan Slott had waited a few issues before revealing the...

Dan Slott's She Hulk was one of my favourite titles of all time. But you are right, I guess he has been pulled back a bit on Spider-Man. He's still the best thing to happen to the title in years...
