They're starting to kill off mutants though, Sinister just combined Inhuman DNA to Cyclops' and it turned him into a monster.

I think it's the fact that it got worse from film to film that was the problem. The voice in Begins was fine but it got coarser and much more difficult to understand as the series went on. That was really my only gripe and I think that was the problem people had most to complain about, not that he shouldn't do it anymore.

Who else of the big names have they killed? Isn't it mostly the small time characters that the Inhuman Mists have effected? I know they killed Cyclops but I don't expect that to be a lasting thing with the amount of work they have put into his character over the last few years.

You guys still read comics? Do you mind my asking how? I haven't read anything new in many years, except when occasionally in a Barnes & Noble and I look at the GN section.
Do you buy monthlies (I assume that still exists)? Wait for collections in bound form?

I used to have a few subscriptions. Does that still exist?

Did you send away for Sea Monkeys or X-Ray Specs?

 

 

 

If I'm in the area I'll blow an hour at Forbidden Planet looking at the new titles. I don't really recognize anything though.

I know I bought sea monkeys but not from the comics. You could get them from the local candy store, too. The box said they were brine shrimp but that didn't dash the hope. I think I got the colored rock crystals there, too.



Man did I dream about those x-ray specs. Never got them, though.

I don't read much anymore. Occasionally dive back in but fell out of it a few years ago, but try and keep up on what's happening with them. It's an expensive hobby.

If you do decide to buy I think digital is the way to go. I'd only buy printed comics in trade paperback form.

The day my X-Ray Specs arrived was that day that I realized that the life can be a cruel bitch.

How did they work? Was it just a nude taped to the inside of the lens?

lol - here; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Ray_Specs_(novelty)
Is that what yours were?

As I remember. 

 

It was a sad day when I realized I couldn't see through the clothes of young women. Thank God for the underwear section of the old Sears catalogue.

Someone from another forum hooked me up with a Marvel Unlimited subscription for $10 or $15 a year (I forget). It's not up to the latest releases but it's a great value when there isn't anything to read.
