    Don't think of it as "they never did", think of is as "they haven't YET". They'll get around to it.

    It kills me that most comic book readers want nothing but the next "Wolverine & 6-10 Other Characters You Don't Really Care About" or "The Mediocre Adventures of Batman's 7th Robin & His Irrelevant Friends" titles.

    There is a whole world of great comics out there that don't contain a single cape, cowl, or mustache-twirling would-be conqueror of worlds. As cool as both Batman and Wolverine are as characters, it gets to a point where they become the comic book equivalent of Justin Bieber (sic?) or the Spice Girls.

    C'mon people. Try something different. Please.
    Current DE pull list: Red Sonja; The Shadow; The Shadow:Year One; The Spider; Kings Watch; The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights; Lone Ranger; Pathfinder:Goblins; Mark Waid's Green Hornet; The Shadow Year One; Miss Fury; Miss Fury: Digital First; Lords of Mars; Pathfinder; The Owl; The Black Bat; Warlord of Mars; Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris; Dejah Thoris & The Green Men of Mars; Red Team; Codename Action; Lady Rawhide; Uncanny; Lord of the Jungle (?)

    That's kind of the point of "Free Comicbook Day". To get people to try different things. By the way, I'm pretty sure it isn't free to the retailers who have to buy the books to give away.

    They sure do have to pay for them, and they've been getting more and more expensive each year since FCBD started.

    I will say that I wasn't a fan of Crossgen other than ABADAZAD (which was fantastic and went on to be published as prose/graphic novel hybrids, the third of which, sadly, was not released here in the states and is out of print in Britian) and what little I saw of the Sherlock Holmes-esque RUSE.

    I've never been a fan of Marvel either as a source of entertainment (the characters just don't interest me) or as a publisher (short of when EPIC was running back in the 80's). They don't take the type of chances that DC has or continues to do. Think of the top five most influential graphic novels/collections ever published...Chances are they were all DC books. I have enjoyed some Marvel comics in the past...NEXTWAVE...Ed Brubaker's run on CAPTAIN AMERICA...Bendis and Maleev's DAREDEVIL (and the Brubaker/Lark run after that) and some others but, generally speaking, I have found more pleasure from DC/VERTIGO books.

    Marvel fans aren't, generally, open to change and/or anything different. Always exceptions to the rule, though, of course, but generally they like where they are and don't want to stray too far from it. Classic licensed characters like FLASH GORDON or the ilk A) don't concern Marvel. They have their own licenses that have become Hollywood juggernauts and B) Don't do very well, sales wise (even the classic DOC SAVAGE and JOHN CARTER Marvel books were very short-lived).

    So, I'm really REALLY glad that Dynamite is in the biz.

    With all of two people clamoring for this, it's not likely, but still one can imagine....

Followed by inevitable Year Ones for all of them.

    And that's just the big three. The stable of Universal Monsters is large enough to support a reasonably large line, with the Invisible Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Mole People, and others who could make the world that much larger, if not necessarily carry their own books.
    I'd totally buy Monsters. Strangely I don't think I'd be that interested in some of them individually, but as a bizzare monster "team" I would so get it.

    Similar to the way Masks teamed up. And although the very idea would probably piss off or offend all the "purists", the pottential idea of Masks vs. Monsters would be freakin incredible!

    Yes!

    I'd so snag the Universal Monster black & White variants.

    Moonstone already did this one (albeit with PD versions of the monsters, rather than Universal's), as pretty much the last gasp of their abortive Return of the Originals pulp line. There were 4 one-shots: The Spider vs. Werewolf, The Phantom Detective vs. Frankenstein, Domino Lady vs. The Mummy, and The Black Bat vs. Dracula.

    5 http://assets.catawiki.nl/assets/2/1...50569439b1.jpg

    Almost finished reading volume 4, and it doesn't let down for a minute, with action-packed adventures; novels I very much recommend

    - Pirates of Venus (1934)
    - Lost on Venus (1935)
    - Carson of Venus (1939)
    - Escape on Venus (1946)

    And can't wait to read

    - The Wizard of Venus (1964)

    Should really read the whole collection

    And once read, with this next line, from book 4 in "Escape On Venus" could an attemp be made to finally resolve in comic book form this mystery

    Betty Callwell aka Loto-El-Ho-Ganja (Most High More Than Woman Of The Fire, Fire Goddess) Goddess of the Brokols"
