    Ummmm, Mr. Burgas, correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you have a lot more than you’ve just listed? Or are you just listing the one that you’ve posted on AJS?

    1. Greg Burgas

      Tom: Yeah, I’m just listing the ones I’ve done for this blog. Eventually, I’ll get around to reposting the old ones, but that’s very time-consuming, so I haven’t done it yet. I don’t even know where the old archive is, so I didn’t even bother. But I’ll repost them at some point!

  2. Brent A

    Hi Greg, I checked and it seems there are only 6 articles from CBR missing from this archive, and then a complete “set” would be here: 300, All Star Superman, Stormwatch, Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing Moore & ST Millar. Any chance of uploading them sometime? Thanks-

    1. Greg Burgas

      I should be done with them in August, I think. I’m taking a bit of a break in June to catch up on graphic novel reviews, and then I’ll start reposting again. So it will be soon!
