Elsewhere on the web: In which I see Captain America
It's my totally unscientific opinion that the two big comic book publishers draw their fans from slightly different demographics.
Fans of DC Comic characters tend, I think, to be conventional characters who respect authority. Your Marvel reader tends to be slightly more countercultural. A little more out there.
You know me: I'm dull. I've always been a DC man, even though these days I'd have to say my all-time favourite funnybook is the Mark Millar / Bryan Hitch run on Marvel's The Ultimates.
So what did I think when I reviewed groovy hippy publisher Marvel's squarest, most conventional character for Bleeding Cool?
Well, it's my raviest review ever. and I don't mean there are glowsticks. I liked it so much, I simply couldn't find space for any jokes. I prefer my reviews to contain at least one decent gag.
You might want to read my take on Captain America anyway.
