Azazel and Angel something or other? Why in... no, rather, who in the world thought either of them were good ideas for any kind of X-Men movie whatsoever?
 
Might as well have just given that Angel chick a red shirt with her costume.
 
Can't we just bury any and everything Chuck Austen once and for all? :(

First off, let me just say that I think a more standardized format is a great idea, and glad to see that that's going to be a goal going forward.
 
I do have a question about the Character/Team Article format. I assume Origin is supposed to refer to the character's comic origin, and not their meta-textual origin (which, presumably, is covered by Creation; a list of the creators involved, and perhaps any special circumstances behind the character's creation). Presuming that's what is meant, should the order of these possibly be switched? Have the Creation info, followed by the character's in-story origins, followed by their subsequent development, and then a list of major story arcs they are involved in for more reference.
 
Are there any pages currently done and approved with the new format to check out for more examples?

    I agree- I'd love to see more crossovers between publishers and their comics.

      Just picked up the second trade of Secret Six recently, and am catching up. Great title, and this was a particularly awesome issue. The Bane/Catman/Batman parallels and in-jokes were great. It also made me consciously realize that at least half of Secret Six's members are originally Batman Rogues (Deadshot, Catman, and Bane).

      I always loved the Blackbird.

        I was iffy myself; I haven't ever been terribly impressed with any of the previous attempts at D&D comics. Either the writing wasn't very good, the characters, the artwork- usually a combination of the above. 
         
        The #0 issue was cheap ($1), and I love Di Vito's artwork, so I figured I'd give it a shot. So far, it's pretty good.

        After a panel on webcomics at the Long Beach Comic Con, I've been interested in checking out the different fares out there, to see what's new and innovative. Problem is, there are just so many!
         
        Can anyone recommend any good webcomics to try out? Obviously, I'd love something with a good storyline and characters, but I'm very interested in seeing alternative webcomics that play with the computer medium and aren't necessarily just scanned strips.
         
        Thanks!

        Need to remove some lower quality covers from the Dungeons and Dragons IDW pages; specifically:
         
        Dungeons and Dragons issue #1: The first one is very grainy, so I did a second one.
        Dungeons and Dragons #0: The second scan of the 2010 Comic Con edition cover is grainy, so I put up another one.
         
        Thanks!

        Genis-Vell, followed closely by Mar-Vell. Though I greatly preferred the heroic Genis/CM of PAD's first run on the title, I did enjoy the "insane Genis" concept he explored in the second series (though I felt it went on too long, and was hurt by rotating artists and some of the stories PAD introduced seemed to not get fully explored). 
         
        I hope they bring Genis back some day.
