Has it been five hundred of these things already? My God! What have I done?!?
I am truly surprised that I have stuck with this so long, but here we are, almost four years old, with a fairly substantial body of work. If you're new to Again With the Comics, my name is Brian Hughes, and I've been reading funnybooks all my life. Babbling about them on the internet feeds my ego in a sad, sick way, and apparently a bunch of you get something out of this too. Yay co-dependence!
Big thanks go out to my readers, followers, commenters, and to all those who link to this blog. The comics blogosphere is a big place, with a lot of great work, so I appreciate any portion of time you devote to Again With the Comics, you guys! Newer readers may have missed some of the best stuff from the recent past, though, so here's a handy list of some recent hits:

With that, I'd like to open the comments up for topic suggestions. I'm only one guy, and it gets a bit hard to come up with new things to write about, so with that in mind, what would you like to see me discuss, dear readers? What crazy old character/book are you dying to hear my opinion of? Any bright ideas, smart guy? I make no promises, but I'll consider any reasonable request! Let me know in the comments!
The Quatro drum & bugle corps appear courtesy of Baron and Rude's Nexus #27, a fine issue of a series I still haven't raved enough about yet.
