I Cant Think of Anything Clever to Type Here

Felicia Day will be co-hosting Attack of the Show on G4 tomorrow.

That is all.

But I guess apathy is all the rage with the kids these days, right?

Yes, this is exactly what I want in a superhero movie. For the hero to look like a sad sack homeless person who likes to take his shits in a dumpster. Sorry, Mark Millar. Will Smith already be ya to the punch on that one.

Hittin' Back Hard

What is going on? DC has the Top 6 best selling comics in October? Detective Comics moves up to the #19 spot from being #25 last month and it is now outselling Hulk? Are fanboys finally coming to their senses or is the CCW Nation just taking it to the streets and not tolerating shitty comics anymore?

“Ya, but there wasn’t an issue of Cap Reborn that shipped in October,” the Marvel Zombies will say. Well, you know what? If Marvel actually shipped their books on time maybe they would have cracked the Top 5. Just saying.

Feel that? A change is coming DC fans. Today the industry is in a better place but don’t be content with this small win. There is still much work to be done. We still have to get some more independents in the Top 100.

And yes, I noticed that Tony Daniel’s Batman #692 came in at the #12 spot. Gotta take the good with the bad.

Odds and Ends

Posted: November 11, 2009 in Odds and Ends, Opinion

Thumbs Up

-I didn’t end up buying Punishermax #1 or Strange #1 today. Can’t afford to add two more $3.99 titles to my monthly pull. Marvel is just killing themselves (and me) with their prices. I’ll just wait for the trade on Strange.

-I did however end up getting Amazing Spider-Man #611. I had forgotten about this issue back when I was ranting about not buying Spidey again till January. It’s Joe Kelly’s chance to write Deadpool again, Eric Canete on the art and it’s pretty much a one and done story. Being that I am a fan of Kelly’s Deadpool run and Canete’s art I felt compelled to purchase it.

-Getting back to the subject of overpriced comics: Batman/Doc Savage Special was $4.99. I have yet to read it but that thing better be fucking golden…or bronzed as the case may be.

-There was a surprise(?) return of one of my favorite (mutant) characters today in Dark X-Men #1. Now if only Marvel could get Steve Skroce to come back and do another monthly with him. It’s really too bad Marvel somewhat ruined this surprise return with their shitty The Siege teasers last week.

Captain America: Who Will Wield the Shield one-shot has now officially changed to Captain America REBORN: Who Will Wield the Shield making it seem very likely that fans will indeed have to buy it before Cap: Reborn #6 to know what the hell is going on.

-Finished reading REBELS #10. Awesome ending to an awesome issue. Hope everyone who is checking the book out for the first time enjoys it as much as I did. May have to review this one.

-Just saw the sales estimates for October and DC really handed Marvel their asses. I’m working on a post right now for it. Should be up in a bit.
