Wizard is an entity I have a love/hate relationship with. I had a subscription as well, but it took at least a week and a half to two weeks after it hit newstands to get to my house, so it was always frustrating.

The 100 issues was a good story for sure. I was happy to see all the Vertigo stuff I love in there, as well as some oldies but goodies. I also enjoy the interviews with old school creators.

My pet peeve is the top artist and writer. Half the people on the artist list can't make a deadline if their lives depend on it. I think that lateness should disqualify a person, so I will never be happy there.

I also dislike the top comic books any more. It is all variant crap. Back when it was about the issue, I dug it, but now I just cringe.

Scott, I definitely agree with your assessment. Ten years ago it was like a bible to me; now it is a guilty pleasure.
