Mulan Posted October 4, 2002 Share Posted October 4, 2002 I really can't believe that there was no thread for this series until now. Straczynski's really an amazing writer. He use to write for that Sci-fi show, Babaylon 5 and he's now one of my all time favorite new comic writers. He finished with Midnight Nation, another fucking amazing series. He's currently writing for Rising Stars and Amazing Spiderman. Both which he's stopping soon. I don't know what he's gonna be doing after these series finish up. But here's your chance to get in on the groud floor and catch up to everyone else who's been diligently reading his stuff. Rising Stars is up to issue 20 right now and it actually inspired me to start up this thread. I'm sure IC will love to interject his opinions soon. And I really owe him for starting me on this writer so early on. I really encourage you to read all 3 aforementioned series because they are all really phoneomeanl. But if I had to put them in order of favoirte, it'd go somethign like: Rising Stars, Midnight Nation, Amazing Spiderman I know it's strange that spidey isn't higher on my list but knowing how much i love spidey then you understand how the other two had to be out of this world to rank higher. The only problem I have is that I can't get enough of Straczynski. He take forever to write Rising Stars, but hey can't complain. I haven't seen Jeff Smith put out a new Bone in what 5 months? As for Midnight Nation, you are lucky that the series is finished and you can probably get the whole thing in paperback soon. But for us really die hard fans, we got months to go til the next Rising Stars comes out. Atleast Amazing is more frequent. I get my fix that way. pheeww...Now I feel like a true comic dork.
