That's a pretty cool promotion. I remember when comics were a buck.

Well don't think they're gonna be worth money one day because their #1s. These are reprints of the original issues, and reprints never go up in value. If you had the original, full cover price issues, then they might one day be worth a pretty penny.

I didn't mean value wise I just meant as in starting up the story I love giving new* stories a chance.


*I know there not technically new but to some people they are Like I never felt compelled to pick up Thor but for #1 I will and who knows that may hook me to pick up the rest.

In the late 80s and the 90s Punisher was one of the most popular characters in all of Marvel. He had multiple titles running. It's only a matter of time before Marvel starts to milk the character again in the same way.

What's sad is that I actually got hooked for the first few issues, wondering who "Rulk" was. Then as it dragged on and Marvel promised us the reveal 2 or 3 times only to have the rug pulled out from under us, I left. I just didn't care who it was anymore.

What's even stranger is that Rulk seems to be so popular. Far be it from me to judge someone else's tastes, but his popularity to me is as peculiar as Deadpool (*dodges flames*) and the Marvel Zombies' popularity. They're all camp... but folks treat them seriously when they're supposed to be more tongue-in-cheek humorous. It's when these nonserious characters start affecting the mainstay Marvel Universe that I start to get worried (Deadpool not so much... when he appears in others' titles he tends to be written more seriously).

I liked Marvel Zombies when Kirkman was writing it. It was funny and disturbing at the same time. A strange combination, I know, but it worked. But that fondness for the Marvel Zombies lasted from their first appearances in Ultimate Fantastic Four and the first mini-series. The rest were a little ridiculous. Oh, and Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness was fun, but that's because Ash added to the humor.
