    Just thought i'd throw it out there. In case you didn't know.

    Re-read a lot of his Marvel stuff again, mostly the cosmic stuff. He seriously, single handedly (for me) developed the Marvel Cosmos as it is today. If it wasn't for him my favourite character of all time, Thanos would not have been created. As well as fantastic stories like the Annihilation stories couldn't have been done without his creations.

    So :bowdown: before your literary God, fools.

    I really would like to read up on my cosmic marvel history. Thanos is pretty sweet.

    How does the rapidshare premium stuff work? Cause I've had a premium accnt for awhile, and share it with two friends, one in SD and one in Vegas. Could I just toss it out in public for everyone to share?

    I liked the Thanos stuff but Death of the New Gods was pretty subpar and kind of a rehash of the Infinite Gauntlet story but w/ DC. Rann/Thangar War is supposedly off to a pretty badass start but I haven't had a chance t o pick it up.

    Yeah, you can share it if you want. :bigthumb:

    Death of the New Gods was = :ugh:
    I think he did do that badly just to hurt DC, because no way does he suck that bad. He also did Mystery in Space (will upload soon) which was just semi-okay.

    His Marvel work has always been spotless though.

    Hasn't Starlin done more than that? Or am I thinking of another writer?

    Well, i did have a DC Cosmic he wrote, Mystery in Space. Haven't read it yet, but i plan to. Still, it's Starlin, he can't do any wrong in my books.

    He did. Just doing majority of his Marvel work. I had entire Captain Marvel run, but that one got deleted :hs:
    Got Death of Captain Marvel and some others, but for the most part those are the defining moments in Marvel Cosmic History.

    If it hits that limit, it just cuts me off for a couple hours or what? Does it close out the account?

    Nopp, you just can't download anything for about 4 days. On the fifth day, it clears out however much you had downloaded to start with and you can re-download that way.

    That's how i think it is anyway, it's a bit loony system really.

    Just read Infinity Crusade and I have to say that the religious overtones were a bit much but the story was still enjoyable.

    Is Thanos always as calculating as that story made him out to be?
