Reasons to read "Manhunter" #9

I love witty repartee in comics. And deep symbolism and iconic conflict and complex characterization. And yet...

those can never fully replace sheer over the top wacky hyperaction, now can they?

Not enough of this in "Sandman", if ya ask me...

I don't know why I love that stuff; must be because guys are biologically predisposed toward it, I guess!

Buy Manhunter.

Oh Scipio, you're my favourite fanboy sleuth.

Why the hell couldn't we comment on the last Manhunter reason?

Scipio, you're totally selling me on this book. But --- and I'm being serious here --- I'm one of those guys killing the industry, because I only buy trades. I'll buy an issue one or two, to see if I like it, and if I do, I wait for the TPB.

So... Am I helping to cause Manhunter's cancellation?

Scipio said...

Good, Chance! The book's not perfect or the Greatest Comic Mag of All Time or anything. But it is fun and interesting.

And, you know, there IS a Manhunter trade, so you could buy that, then go to the Ask the Editor thing on the DC website and request that they produce more Manhunter trades. The long-term "trade-ability" of a title surely must figure in to the company's estimates on its profitability.

Marionette;

I'm having new business cards made that say "Scipio Garling, Fanboy Sleuth".
