    Marvel/DC comics for beginners.

    There are different ways. You may start reading recent graphic novels/series or go to the very beginning. Personally, I would suggest to start reading Marvel comics from the beginning, i.e. the very first issues by Stan Lee from the 1960s. There are a lot of editions out there collecting the first issues. Stories might look slow paced and drawings outdated but they will show how it all started and they are entertaining. Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Captain America, The Avengers and Daredevil are a must. As per DC Comics, instead, I wouldn't start from the beginning, i.e. from the 1930s (stories look too childish to modern standards), but from the most recent adventures, early 1990s onwards (you may always go back later, if you wish). I would suggest the followings as a starting point: -Batman: stories related to The death of the second Robin -Superman: stories related to The death of Superman -The Flash: stories by Grant Morrison. -Green Lantern: stories by Geoff Johns -Wonder Woman: stories by John Byrne. For a fresh look at the characters of the Golden Age (i.e. DC in the 1930s) I recommend the mini-series The Golden Age by James Robinson. Just my opinion, obviously. Hope it helps.

    Thoughts on the show?

    I live very close (Clacton) and was delighted when they announced Colchester Sportsmania but last Saturday I was in London (at a concert at the RAH, booked months before). I know the stadium well: it is small but it is new and functional; I really would like to know how it went in terms of attendance and venue suitability. Certainly, the event lasted only for a few hours, as many guests were available during the 11-14 slot and this probably didn't encourage a lot of people to attend.

    X-Men Apolcalypse

    Excellent cinematography (especially the first 10 minutes) and special effects; there is also a good balanced mix of drama and action with a little dash of humour. I think Apocalypse's motives could have been stated in a better way. As someone else pointed out, it is maybe the weakest of the trilogy but as a superhero movie is very enjoyable. Anyway, I liked it more than CA:Civil War.

    Guest Cancellation - John Wesley Shipp

    Noooo. Hopefully, there will be more The Flash guests.

    Another week has passed and I still haven't received any reply from SM regarding my case. Thank you for taking care of the matter, Queen, but I now believe Jason has decided to choose the easy way: ignore my problem. Simple and effective. After all, what am I going to do about it? The answer is: nothing. I am very disappointed and disillusioned with SM. I don't think this is the way to treat fans/customers, considering I had told SM I was ready to accept ANY decision. Sorry, SM, not your finest hour.

    Sorry, I didn't get that. I sent it from my private email. Edited by Queen_Sindel, Today, 10:50 AM. E-Mail address removed after noting down - will be forwarded as promised. Thank you again, Queen.

    I sent my email to info@showmastersevents.comand info@showmastersonline.com. This was after Jason complained about the fact that I made my issue "public" on the forum, i.e. the problem was well known to SM. Jason said on the forum he would look into it. As a reminder, I just say it was about my son's picture with MJF. I had asked twice the pit boss in red shirt to have it retaken but he refused and insisted the picture was great. I honestly think that after 25 days SM should have taken a decision about it: some form of compensation? An apology? A confirmation that it is a great picture? As I said before, I have supported SM form many years and they have always been efficient at solving issues. I don't understand why they are not even communicating, this time. The explanation that LFCC has been a very busy event with a lot of things to do afterwards is beginning to lose consistency.

    Exactly! I have dealt with SM in the past (I have been attending their shows since 2004!) via emails on various issues and always had a fairly quick reply. That is why now I am worried that I am just being ignored.

    That is understandable. More people attending means more (possible) issues arising. SM really need to employ more people to go over the many mails received.

    I am too waiting for a response on the infamous MJF picture. It is really hard to believe it takes so long to solve such simple problem. Considering that in 4 days there will be Sheffield and then more events one after the other, I am worried that our LFCC problems will be overshadowed and buried by the (let's hope not) new ones arising from the oncoming conventions.

    Same here. Unfortunately, after such huge event it is taking longer than usual to deal with one-to-one issues. But I am positive: Showmasters never let me down in the past.

    If they are for personal use, I can't see why not to produce copies of it.
