Why do the Big Two publish so many comics? Why not have a smaller amount of titles monthly? [more inside]
Looking for a picture from, IIRC, one of the early issues of the 1980s era GI Joe comic book. It's a picture of GI Joe member Breaker saying something like "Let's hear it for communications!" I remember it taking up the whole page, but haven't been able to find it online, or in the ebook version of the early comics.
Two or three decades ago I read a comic which I've been thinking about off and on the last few years, but I haven't been able to find it again. All I can remember about it was that there was a solid black panel followed by a panel where someone explains that there had just been something like a gap (or hole?) in reality (or time?)

What comics on Marvel Unlimited should I read? I asked how to read Captain America a couple months ago and read through the Brubaker run and enjoyed a lot of it. I'm looking for more recommendations for what to read that's up on the Marvel Unlimited site-- I'm not really interested in buying issues that aren't up yet. [more inside]
I liked the new Captain America movie. I want to read more about these characters. How do I get into the comics? Where do I start? Can I use the Marvel app to do this? How do I read them in order with all those team-up comics and spinoffs? *Should* I read them in order? Also, what slash fiction should I read while reading them, and should I read that at a certain point in the continuity, or just do my usual thing and go on a fanfic binge once I'm caught up?
What's worth reading from DC or Marvel, or the other guys in the last decade or so? I'm looking for superhero comics written recently enough that I can buy the trades new easily. I'll leave my likes and dislikes below. [more inside]
What are the superhero animated DVDs to get? What are the superhero comics of the last few years to get? [more inside]
I'd like to read some great old Marvel comics. The only reprinted compilations that I've seen in bookstores are the Essentials, which are in black and white (when the whole point is how colourful they are), and the Masterpiece series, which are expensive, and the colours don't look right when printed on the shiny paper. Is there any way to get reprints in colour on newsprint? I know there was at one point, since I first encountered the Fantastic Four in Archie's-double-digest-like format.
A few years back I found a website that listed out all the comics that Marvel has published throughout their history in a year by year basis. The page was set up in a very basic HTML grid format, but it was amazingly comprehensive. I need to find it to calm my anal retentive impulse to read all my back issues in chronological order. It was not Mike's Amazing World of Marvel Comics as much as I do love that site, it just isn't quite enough to fulfill my completist nature. Help?
Where do I start reading about Deadpool? [more inside]

I'm making a lightweight replica of Captain America's shield (the modern-day circular one), most likely with PVC in a laser router machine. The only dimensions I can secure online are that it's 30 inches in diameter, but I can't find any info on thickness and concave depth. Anyone know the missing dimensions I need? Bonus points if there exist specifics on the width of the color bars but I'm pretty sure that part I can eyeball during painting. Thanks!
Please recommend some off-the-beaten-path Marvel comics titles that are really good, and that don't involve any of the big name superheroes (like X-Men, Spidey, etc.) [more inside]
