Still not reading it, but it's interesting to hear the discussion! I especially like hearing the questions from Pants about Marvel history and Murd and Jamie's answers. Flying car: hmm....so, I guess that's why I only heard a FEW geeks laugh during a Drunk Cap call when he got Sharon Carter angry because he called her Peggy so " he saiid: "She got upset, got into her car, and flew away!" So, I'm still not convinced enough to get the trade, but I'll keep listening.
Savage Wolverine: Wha--?!? Matt gave it a BUY? Awesome! Yeah, I noticed that Man-Thing likeness on the island, too! It's a BUY for me, too! Uncanny X-Force: Well, I liked it a LOT better than Cable and X-Force, but I wonder what will be the difference between this one and X-Men 1. Like Pants, I loved the artwork. BUY! Young Avengers: I thought the issue overall was so-so. The art: so-so. There were some good moments, but I miss Jim Cheung art on the Young Avengers. And where did Speed go? Like Jamie I didn't like the added characters. I also didn't like the two-page credits. I prefer substance over style. Heh-heh...BORROW! DRUNK CAP! YAY! Have a happy 1943!!
I'd have to say it was a combination of things, mostly because I don't remember what happened first: the black-and-white Superman TV show, the 1966 Batman TV, and my dad bought me a few comics before I started buying them on my own.
