CCW Open Thread

Posted: February 24, 2010 in CCW Nation, CCW Open Thread

Well, it’s Wednesday and the start of a new comic week. What’s on your mind?

Would anyone be interested in me posting a Blackest Night thread this week?


  1. Matthew Guy says:

    So did Flash Rebirth #6 finally come out today?


  2. Dan Griffin says:

    Anybody see the new Trade Dress for Invincible Ironman?

    • Wow. Very interesting. That last cover design didn’t last very long. Guess it was made especially for Stark Disassembled.

      My first impression of this new cover design is that I really like it. I like it a lot. I may have to make a post out of this later today. Thanks Dan.


    • Smallmaniac says:

      I get a neck cramp from trying to read the title. I think it’s awesome that they’re changing things up instead of keeping it all the same. The cover looks awesome, though a little hard to read.

      More importantly, anyone else notice the $3.99 price tag?

      • Marvel has been notorious for charging $3.99 on issues that begin new story arcs. That’s why I dropped Invincible Iron Man in the first place. If I remember correctly though this may by an extra sized issue. Whether or not it will have any reprinted BS in it remains to be seen.


    • Dan Griffin says:

      Does anyone else get a sliders feel to the text part of the cover? I like it, great Modern Sci-Fi feel to it.

    • MANACONDA! says:

      i like it, but i LOVE the current one a lot. too bad its gonna be gone 😦

      ill have to frame them and put them on my wall

  3. Deemar says:


    Should I drop Captain America or not?

    I’m on the fence

  4. Dan Griffin says:

    The Books that True Blood the tv show were based off of are now becoming comics over at Dynamite Entertainment.

  5. Mike F says:

    Jose could you please review how Flash rebirth was AWFUL and shouldn’t have happened?

    Your pretty much the only fearless comic reviewer who doesn’t care how he looks when he reviews. And since Johns is the golden boy of comics right now, no one listens to me when I say Flash rebirth ended in the cheesiest, cliche way ever.

    BUT Blackest night is still strong and remarkable (so clearly Johns is still great) but the whole rebirth of Barry Allen was completely unneeded.

    Please Help me Jose… 😦

    • I didn’t bring a copy home with me to read but I will try to the next time I go into work. Overall I have thought that the series has been awful. Issue #5 was better than the first four but not enough to save the series. I don’t know how it ended but by what you are saying it sounds like “not very well.” I will definitely check it out when I get a chance and get back to you.


      • Mike F says:

        Yeah I will admit issue 2 and 5 to me where highlights, and its not that the issue ending bad, it started off really intense but then some really cliche cheesiness was brought in. And I wouldn’t have hated it so much if it was delayed from November to freaking February! That Long and this is what I got…

        Man, but for a 2.99 book (and again if it came out sooner) I would be fine. But, the more I reread this issue, the more I feel like, its just embarrassing that Barry is brought back to begin with.

        Yeah, Overall, I expected better from Johns… But a few moments stood out.

  6. I found some old Deadpool books for a buck each! 🙂 Anyway what did everyone think of Blackest Night#7? I predicted the ending, but it still managed to put a huge grin on my face!

    • I also predicted the ending of this issue like 6 months ago. The issue was fine but I am now finding myself wanting the series to end already.


      • yeah I’m starting to want this series to end too. I’m sick of seeing all my fav DC characters dead and fighting dead people. But there is only one more issue left! Can’t wait for the payoff!

        I also find myself excited for Brightest Day, but I’m hoping it’ll keep my interest enough to buy all 26 issues (27 if you count #0). What are you guys’ thoughts and hopes for Brightest Day?

    • Morlock50 says:

      Does anybody else think this mini is going on too long? Maybe it was the break in January, but I feel the series lost it’s momentum. This last issue was just average in my opinion. Also, Nekron is turning into a lame bad guy.

  7. kurumais says:

    this is who jose reminded me of when i first started watching ccw especially after the first big BMB rant i saw

  8. says:

    what were you and E talking about when you mentioned Shooter and Valiant in a recent show?

    • It was a throw away comment I made while we were talking about Marvel I believe. I forgot what context I used it in but the long and short of it is Jim Shooter is currently in the process of trying to revive Valiant Comics. We could see them back in the industry by the end of the year…Wouldn’t hold my breath though.


      • says:

        This is besides the Gold Key characters at Dark Horse? That would be great. Early Valiant up to Unity was the greatest run of comics i’ve ever bought.

  9. mbell028 says:

    I definately agree that Blackest Night 7 was good, but I do feel it needs to end. I’m not too happy about Brightest Day because It’ll be bi-weekly on top of having Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps books as well. I wish they would just go back to having just Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. I could be wrong, but doesn’t brightest day seem to be similar to what Marvel is doing with Siege in bringing everyone back. I’m not saying that either DC or Marvel stole the idea from one another, but it seems that both are shifting from Darkness (Final Crisis, Blackest Night, Dark Reign, Siege) into whatever event is after Siege for Marvel and Brightest Day for DC. As long as the quality of books are good I’m fine, but I’m just about done with Marvel I haven’t even read a single book from Siege and I don’t plan on it.
