    I am ok with spiderman ending at 700. I am curious where they will go with the new start.

    As an answer to this weeks question…
    RedMist changed his name to mother f’er (he uses the entire word, but I am not sure I can write that here!)

    Concerning the rebooting issue, at the end of the day, all the stories are created by companies trying to sell the comic book. If they thought they would make more money selling releasing volume 2 issue 1 one month and volume 3 issue 1 the next month they would. New and old comic collectors instinctively want to own the #1 issue, but the old collectors want legacy as well.

    At the heart of it I think everyone should worry much less about if/when a series reboots, that’s a bit of a selfish (not to mention ‘difficult’) goal. For the most part the numbering is a company’s decision. As long as the writers/drawers can still do what they do best, we should have little reason to complain.

    The best way to sum that up is the following equation of importance:

    Art + Stories > Numbering

    That being said, there should be a comic book law requiring every reboot to also display the original numbering next to the rebooted number. That way the companies can exploit the #1 as much as they like, and the collectors can appreciate and (most importantly i.m.o.)keep track of the continuity much easier.

    And just in case Kevin misses it on technicalities, my answer to the trivia question:

    I need to pull out my Ghost Box issues again, but that story arc killed my interest in Astonishing X-Men. I really want to read Question sometime…I’ve only read an annual issue so far.

    Our own Jason Newcomb is a big Question fan. He reviewed that in one of the first few podcasts we did. If anyone can make a case for that book it’s him! I too want to get around to reading it.
