Hey J., how is your evening goin’ down?
It’s slow going. Watching this week’s episode of Supernatural right now. You?
Just woke up, last night I left my town with some friends to go to another town to see some friends there who wanted to walk in the park. It took 2hrs to get through the darn place.
I love the goldenloeb statue at the bottom.
Yeah, that Deemar, he’s one kooky cat. It kind of looks like Elliott’s about to kick Avi in the balls, dunnit?
HA, yes it does.
In Elliot’s defense, Avi does appear to be enjoying it.
Thanks guys. Avi is now going to give me shit about posting this pic all next week.
Interesting. D puts Avi on E’s side. Interestlng..
Also since I’m just waking up, I had to squint my eyes to make sure that Loeb award was’nt something else. L-)
I put Avi on E’s side just for the numbers
That’s about it
You said it not me lol!
So I guess that’s supposed to be the people on here? If so, I hope I’m Rambo. Cuz I’d like to think I’m not expendable.
No your not Rambo, your right behind Rambo’s zipper.
I guess that’s better than being on his tonsils.
Yes, yes it is.
I’m working on something else related to the individual CCW members, it’s going slow though juggling a few things right now.
Will keep you all posted
The turkish bazooka ‘thud’ is awesome!
Thup, it’s a thup!
Yeah, that’s Deemar’s interpretation of the hilarious plunger sound that guy’s bazooka made. And Cball–I’m not sure it’s the people on here so much as characters that Dee’s come up with from various things CCW-related. Like I know the Astro-Boy was inspired by E’s microphone stand. Turkish Rambo AVS nailed. Some of the others, I’m not so sure…I don’t really ask questions, I just color the danged thing! And drink coffee. And listen to Wordballoon and Stern. And try not to earn J’s ire. One day, he will reach up and swat me down. Of this, I am certain.
Oh, it will come one day. Be sure of that. 😛
Yes, you will smite me. I will be smote. And, thus smitten, I will look up at you and ask if I can have more fruit juice even though I shit the bed. And you will whisper, “No.”
*Runs and hide in fear*
All the various characters are up coming toons for the Sunday Funnies you’ll get to meet them all.
You all are familair with Red & Beans and Master Rice, just wait for what’s coming next.
i was looking up spaghetti westerns and found this little gem
the stranger and the gunfighter
i cant remember why or place lo lieh i looked him up on imdb and ive seen a few of his movies
Ha, I love me some Lee Van Cleef. I know he’s most famous for The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly, but he’ll always be the Master Ninja to me.
Oops, reposted the wrong thing. I meant to post this.
We almost missed out.
There will never be another show quite like MST3K. Nothing on television has made me laugh harder.
I remember that show. One of NBC’s shortlived genre shows of the 80’s. While it was a lot better than V:The Series or Misfits Of Science, this is still my favorite one…
I don’t know if I would like any of them now, but back in the day I liked V and Misfits a lot more than Manimal 🙂
Manimal was great. I also loved V and Misfits Of Science. And how about love for Voyagers?
I had never even heard of Voyagers until it was rerun on the SciFi Channel years ago.
my sister LOVED manimal lol
I love that show, when I was a wee lad me and my brother watched this religiously.
I own damn near every thing Lee Van Cleef on DVD
lol i watched that horrible show when i was a kid
Anyone remember a show from the mid-eighties kinda like Knight Rider only the guy was on a motorbike?
Was that the one that looked like Tron? I have a vague memory of that.
Oh yeah, the show was called “Street Hawk”.
Do you remember The Phoenix? I’m the only one I know who remembers this show.
i remember it i think it was the only time that actor was cast as a good guy
I don’t remember seeing it at the time but i want to see it now! Is that the dude that was Khans right hand man in Wrath of Khan?
Oh and what was that show that had a family transported into other dimensions through an egyptian pyramid?
Wow thats the one…fuck they really tried to milk the formula a bit too much with that
Yeah it was a good show while it lasted.
Anyone else read Time Lincoln? I’m a sucker for sheeeit like that.
I didn’t. Was that the comic drawn by Fred Perry of Gold Digger fame?
It is Fred Perry. But I never read Gold Digger. Any good?
I used to read Gold Digger way back in the day. I liked it because it had characters that were satire versions of anime, manga and video game characters. A lot of in jokes. Same with the comic Ninja High School. Loved both of the comics. Haven’t read Gold Digger Lately though.
What’s with all this Lincoln popularity? I saw that the author of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies just released his new book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. And then, of course, there was this:
Lincoln’s always been popular in Illinois. Where do you think I got the idea for my terrible beard?
You should have seen my beard last year. I went five months without shaving. Just to do it.
Don’t you ever cut that beard, lol it’s how I draw you.
Need you with a consistent look
The hat, it’s the hat.
yeah, that really does take me back down memoory lame.
Of course they cut the scene where Uhura kicks Abe in the nads.
The Dark Man took my son.
I have been listening to the Ricky Gervais Show podcasts over and over and over again for the last few months. I don’t think there is anything funnier on the planet at the moment.
Carl makes that podcast. Have you been watching the animated show on HBO?
Ya I have. The animated show is just bits pieced together from their different podcats. Even though there really isn’t anything new in them I do like the animation.
Oh, on a comic related note, there will be some reviews coming your way tomorrow on the blog. We still do talk about comics on here, right?
Stand up comics?
I was first introduced to Andrew Dice Clay when I religiously watched Diff’rent Strokes as a kid.
I listened to all of Andrew Dice Clay’s tapes as a teen while riding around with my friends in my car.
I am 34 and am sad about both of the above facts.
Oh, Dana Plato…crush. Le sigh…
Hell ya. You know what I’m talking about, Willis!
What you’re talking about,… I know about it, Willis.
Are you trying to ruin my childhood?
I take it you have never seen the film Jack and Jill…and Jill? It was a soft core porn staring Dana Plato.
Hey, I do believe that Kimberly Drummond was the first girl I ever had tingly feelings for…right after seeing Linda Carter as Wonder Woman. I don’t mean to ruin your childhood. In the nineties I actually dated a girl who looked like Dana Plato. I’m pretty sure if I told you what we did that THAT would ruin your childhood dreams.
I’m not kidding about the dating a girl who looked like Dana Plato part.
mah mah mah,… I can’t hear you; mah mah mah mah.
Actually I was aware of the Plato Porno. I heard about it… I dated a girl who kind of looked like Punky Brewster. We broke up after a very special episode where she locked me in an abandoned refrigerator.
I went out with a girl whose previous boyfriend dated Punky Brewster. So I’m sure I tasted a little Punky residual with the girl I was with.
Is that sloppy thirds, twice removed?
Punky Brewster before or after the breast reduction?
Also, being locked in a refrigerator is no laughing matter.
I am a gentleman, sir. The very fact that you would think that I might answer this question besmirches the good name that I have attempted to cultivate over these many years on this earth; I have never been so insulted in all my time on this blog contraption. Good day sir! I said good day!
I did say it was a very special episode.
I saw the Playboy issue that Plato posed in shortly after she died. That made me feel weird.
Now you got me thinking who the first girl was that I had tingly feelings for. Well, first celebrity. I had the hots for some girls in grade school.
Hmmm… thinking… maybe Tawny Kitaen. Loved her in Bachelor Party and, of course, the Whitesnake videos. Or maybe Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles. There was probably someone before that, but who knows. I never looked at Wonder Woman or Daisy Duke was being sexy. I was probably a late bloomer. My biggest teenage crush by far was Christina Applegate. I had several posters as well as every magazine she appeared in. Kids these days don’t know how good they got it, what with the Google machine at their fingertips.
I was also a big fan of the way Art Adams drew women. Still am.
My first was Elizabeth Montgomery, home sick from school on TBS for an hour block 9-10AM. Still looking for a woman who can do that nose twitch thing. Involuntary ticks don’t count; just ain’t the same.
Elizabeth Montgomery and not Barbara Eden? Weirdo.
The heart wants what the heart wants.
Not to be morose, but you ever see Elizabeth Montgomery’s tombstone? It’s pretty nice.
I make a pilgrimage out to see it every once and a while and I keep stealing the little hat. To their credit though they keep replacing it. That’s cool, more little hats for me.
my 1st fictional crush was either Batgirl or the exotic green alien dancer on StarTrek, both playedI believe by Yvonne Craig
I’m with you AvS! Elizabeth Montgomery was way hotter imho!!! Even though they were probably the same age while filming their respective shows, I also liked “Samantha Stevens” more since she seemed mature. It’s funny how quickly you get over your lust for mature women when you hit your 30’s. A mature woman for me now would be in her late 40’s or early 50’s. Unless she looks like Heather Locklear, Diane Sawyer, Ellen Barkin, Angela Bassett, and maybe Pam Grier, I’m not interested.
Smartass, I would like to sign up for your newsletter.
I had the Christina Applegate poster hanging on my wall as a kid where she had a hawk perched on one of her hands. I think she had a snake in the other hand. So hot. I still have the poster to this day.
Same exact poster I had.
love and marriage, love and marriage. goes together like a horse and carrage!!!
My first fictional crush was Ms. Marvel, and now I have a second one: Stephanie Brown Batgirl. SHE IS HOT, I DON’T CARE WHAT ANY OF YOU GUYS THINK OF HER COSTUME! SHE’S STILL HOT!
I had an Christina Applegate poster on my wall as well. Before that, the little pervert that I was, I would buy Tiger Beat type magazines when they had pictures/posters of Alyssa Milano in them during her “Who’s The Boss” days. It’s weird that as much as I liked those 2 back in the 1980’s, they do nothing for me now. These days I’m all about Betty White.
I also have the Art Adams’ X-Men poster and the “Mutants” one as well.
I had no posters growing up, by choice really. But I did have a black and white photocopied picture of Louis Armstrong on the wall. It was the only thing on my walls. I’m not making that up, just the facts. Who’s the weirdo now?
Here’s another girl I loved as much as Christina, although not nearly as famous. Her name was Kim Anderson. She was the main brunette in the music video “Girl School” by Britney Fox. She also made an appearance, ironically enough, on one episode of Married With Children.
Way before I even knew what to do with these strange feelings(I never went through a “girls are icky” stage), my first celebrity crush was the female star of a shortlived TV show(it was canceled twice) named “We’ve Got It Made”. I even made my parents buy this issue of TV Guide…
…since she was on the cover.
Looking for a picture of “We’ve Got It Made”, I came upon this list of 1980’s TV shows…
…I feel guilty that I not only remember every one of these shows, I actually remember liking practically half of them(although I’m sure I wouldn’t anymore if I actually tried watching them again).
… childhood memories, that is. But while we’re at it, stay away from that time machine too.
Back to Barbara Eden, she had a fantastic rack.
Oh and Felicity Kendall’s ass was mmm
Oh by the way J hit me up on email got something to discuss with ya.
I’ll shoot you an email in a bit.
Points for anyone who can figure out the link between these awesome songs
I’m gonna say prince wrote these songs
Yes! You knows it!
I forget Vanity’s real name,but she’s a born again christian for the last several years. I’m not sure what happened to Apollonia.
Vanity must be atoning for all that filth she used to sing!
robia la morte pearl from diamonds and pearl is born again she played miss calender on buffy i met her at a con very pretty but sooo skinny
she said she wanted convery prince away from whatever born again secthe is in to her born again sect
ive since heard she was pretty much banned from the con circuit because of the god talk
i thought she was nice not too preachy
Ah the royal badness collectio
S Walls, Manic Monday and Martika’s Kitchen were all penned by P for those singers
I feel 4 u was sung by P 4 his second album, then later given 2 Chaka Khan 2 use
I’m not so sure that StandBack was as much a P creation as it was a StevieNicks creation that she gavr 2 Prince so he could rework it.
I read somewhere Stevie Nicks really wanted a song that sounded like I Would Die 4 U, so he came over to her studio, jammed out the chorus on a synth and let her sort the rest out!
Prince wrote the song AND had sex with the artists. Do I get double credit?
As far as Prince connections go:
I use 2 have such a crush on this…hopefully formerly Pope hatin’ chick
and how can u miss with Carlton’s favorite singer.
Wow, I’d never heard of that Madonna track. Nice!
You never come back from pope hatin’.
Because of posting all of that unspeakable Madonna crap, I MUST post something AWESOME:
Chicago Punk Rock!Woo!
You will sing the chorus of this song for the rest of the day And so Jose doesn’t get mad cuz we haven’t been talking much about comics,there is a song on this album that was inspired by Dark Knight Returns. (smiley face)
Alright, here’s some more:
Since when is one clip of Madonna considered “all that Madonna crap?”
Now you got me considering a Madonna-thon 🙂
Sorry, I just hate Madonna 🙂
Well, I really can’t stand Rise Against so I believe we are even.
I had two extremely vivid sex dreams in my life that I still remember many years later. One involved a college professor. The other involved Madonna. We played Truth or Dare.
The only vivid sex dream I’ve ever had involved bringing home an extremely fat girl from the bar, who was constantly encouraging me to “slam it like Shaquille”. Just thought I’d share that.
I envy you.
As you should.
I had a dream I was getting attacked by a Black Mamba.
Dude you people give me so much material to work with!
Mental Note: Venom + Balck Mamba = ???
Wow! Something else that I missed. Thanks for mentionin’. Hey, you haven’t see my face tho’ 🙂 I MIGHT if I can put that as my avatar, so look out, and bring the puke buckets next to your computers! 🙂
Talked to J about that very thing.
In a few days you guys will see what I’m talking about.
Your gonna love it Venom
OOOOh, I’m excited!
You just wait til D gets word on YOUR dream, Pobra
( And a comicbook lightpage went off above D’s head )
hehe, it’s a true story, but i’m not sure the world is ready to have that image realized as one of D’s cartoons. It did give me a new appreciation for large women though 😉
Mental note LMAO!
i found an interesting clip on youtube batman the birth of the joker its part of fanmade film
but they use the original batman costume the bob kane design with that long bat ears sticking out at that odd angle and surprisingly it looks pretty good on film
i found it when i was checking out the trailer for a 1940’s serial called the green archer i wanted see how much of it made it into green arrow
Good morning CCW citizens!
I bid you an epic weekend theme 🙂
Okay, I hear that JMS first storyline on Wonder Woman involves…the destuction of Paradise Island!!!!!!! Oh nose!!!!!!! And it’s for realsies this time! No more retcons! It’s gone! Drama for my momma!
(fanboy rant commencing)
Can anyone identify how many times the destruction of P.I. has been used as a plot device in this title? I can think of John Byrne’s run where Darkseid destroyed it and killed a quarter of the amazon population (or something like that; fucking battle took place off-panel so I don’t know the exact number). Then Rucka had one of the gods (Athena?) splash the reflection of Themyscira, creating a tidal wave; which occurred before the OMACS attacked, forcing the island to disappear. Is this the bold new direction JMS had in mind when he took over? Where are the editors to tell him that he should think of something new? I got a baby on the way, people; I can’t waste any more money on lame-ass comics. So unless I start to notice dollar bills in my stool, JMS has 3 issues to convince me to keep buying WW, or I’m gone!
(fanboy rant ending)
JMS is quite overrated. His stuff is either hit or miss. I really enjoyed Rising Stars but I hated his Spider-Man run.
Yeah JMS is a little hit or miss for me too. But he knocked it out of the park with Brave and the Bold #33 this week.
I thought some of JMS Supreme Power stuff was OK.Not a must read,but OK.I think the real problem with Wonder Woman is not that the character is bad or that the creators are bad,just that the editors aren’t sure how to sell it to modern audiences.Incidentally,I think that was the issue w/Thor in recent years. Sure,we might like those old characters,but does the teenager who’s buying 4 Deadpool comics each month care about old heroes based on ancient myths?
The only JMS i have been able to read is his Spider-Man, and that was half good, and half bad cause of J.Q.
yeah i saw that and groaned writers love to torture and punish the heroes these days
when was the last time a comic book writer actually sat down and thought up a crime/plot that wasn’t directed at the hero? when was the last time a hero helped somebody just because it was the right thing to do and not because someone was targeting them ?
jesus christ why don’t you wait till the fucking comic comes out before calling it shit?
I’m a Wonder Woman fan, that’s why! We’re completely irrational! Also, I didn’t know I had to wait to offer an opinion.
If I’m Jesus Christ, can I call you Judas? Just asking.
You can call me Spanky if you’d like.
So, what did Spanky think of Brave and the Bold #33? 😛
Spanky liked it. Spanky might even review it tonight or tomorrow if he has time after putting a beatdwon on Elliott because Elliott is being very wishy washy about taping new segments tomorrow because Elliott feels he is a really important person and doesn’t really have the time anymore to slum it with Spanky.
Poor Spanky, that Elliott can be such a prima donna sometimes.
Spanky knows this to be true.
Could Spanky recommend a good Brian Wood comic, please? Someone told me today that his newest was great. But I really know little about him so I feel tempted to check out previous works before buying a current one
(he did the awesome covers for Global Frequency – that’s all I know of him) . . .
Spanky likes DEMO, DMZ, The Couriers and Northlanders. Out of those DEMO is Spanky’s favorite but they are all good.
Are you including Loeb and Bendis comics? 🙂
Well, I stuck out Jodi Picoult’s run on Wonder Woman so I think I’ll stick with JMS for a while reguardless is it sucks or not.
You’re a better man than I, my friend. That run gave me the runs.
It was brutal, I’ll give you that.
I think his Brave and Bold 33 issue proved he has a good way of writing female characters. And Wonder Woman is the quintessential Female hero. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was one of the best series for 2010. Really, he’s a trustworthy writer.
Thanks to all who recommended The Mighty Boosh, really digging it (despite Vince Noir being an emo dandy ;)). Never have I had such inspiration to create next years Halloween costume 😛
Hey Pobra, did you buy Tegan and Sara’s last album “Sainthood”? I finally got around to getting it last week and I am fucking addicted to it.
No, I’ve been meaning to pick it up though.
Tell you what, I’ll get it this week if you promise to pick up Metric’s “Fantasies”. You will NOT be disappointed.
Sounds like a deal.
You should also check out a fella’ by the name of Matt Good. He’s been around for a while, but he’s not on most people’s radar. I just picked up his greatest hits compilation and have been listening to it non-stop for a couple weeks now. Here’s a sample:
Just watched this. Thought it was a brilliant job of editing.
the tale tell sign for me with WW is Kramer, I saw his look for WW and the one hand, it left a l’il to be desired. On the one hand he’s drawn a more athletic WW; chiseled and defined, as an amazon should be …in my book, on the other hand, going by that pic, he might want to redistribute her proportions a bit.
I don’t mind a muscular WW, I just don’t want one that looks like a drag queen.
What are your thoughts on Thack Thwagger being a wwe champ and the release of Shelton Benjamin and Mickie James Myself, a goober like Thwagger is the worst decision since they shamed us with Sheamus. As for Shelton, he had the athleticism, the wrestling skill and whathavya, he just lacked the persona to get him over the hump and Mickie James; to quote Deemar…”thickness”. Man, I hope they don’t fill her void with another twig.
Swagger is ok. I am kinda getting sick of WWE putting championship belts on younger talent just to get them over. The Benjamin thing really pisses me off. He was easily one of the best wrestlers that company has ever seen. But, ya, he really never could get over and WWE never had any good storylines for him. What a waste. I’d like to see Shelton over in Ring of Honor. He would be a good fit over there.
While I believe you have a point on the wwe pushing the younger dudes to get them over, I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong; Thwagger, Sheamus and even Punk were certainly less than ideal to hold the title ( way less ),but the wwe does have to look to the future.
Shawn is gone, Takers’ probably next and the Game maybe has two….three decent years left before he has to go Whose shoulders will will the company rest on? Cena? Orton? Batista? These guys are good to great at what they do, but they’re transitional at best.
Folks like Morrison, Kingston, McEntire, even the Miz have to be considered to keep the business going forward.
Sorry ’bout that; as I was writing this, I did’nt know it was gonna go into rantish terrritory, but as a fan of this entertainment…I guess I had more to say on this subject than I realized 🙂
jose i picked up american vampire 1 and 2. really nice horror book so far.
are you and elliot going to review it for the show?
anyone else checking out i, zombie when it comes out in the next week or so
We reviewed #1 on our podcast last month. I may review #2 on here in the next couple of days.
I just finished American Vampire #’s 1 and 2. Really enjoyed it, the back-up origin stories inparticular.
Today’s fun fact:
William Moulton Marston, creator of Wonder Woman, also created the protype of the original lie detector test.
Now the lasso of truth makes more sense 🙂
what a amazing connection.
i now wanna know if he had anything to do with the invention of stealth airplanes.
Are these CCW fun facts gonna be like Snapple facts? Every thread comes with one?
Maybe. I’m reading a book right now about the history of Wonder Woman so I thought I’d throw that little fact on the thread. It’s a pretty interesting book so far.
maybe you could pass that book on to Fanboy Dee some time.
You’re right, I really should. 🙂
Wait, none of you other comic book nerds knew that? I thought that was comic book nerdology 101.
Well maybe we did, we just didn’t want to seem like know-it-alls.
Seeing how I am not a comic book nerd, no I didn’t.
Sure your not
your a conassuier
I gotta say, I was reading thru Millar’s recent Ultimate comic and I had high hopes at points. I even began to like it, but ultimately he still ended it bad. A shame, it actually had a few decent moments to be clouded by more bull crap.
I guess the good thing about bad writers at marvel is you never have to double check. They are just bad and pretty much there for you to know what NOT to buy 🙂
I’m always so happy that my favorite artists are teamed with my least favorite writers. Art Adams-yay! Loeb-fuck. Leinil Yu-sweet. Who’s he working with? You guessed it.
That is the only reason these terrible writers have jobs. Put Loeb or Millar on a book with Khoi Pham and we’ll see how far that gets them.
The only I mean only reason Loeb’s books sale is because of the artists period.
On the flip side the only reason artist work with Loeb is for a boost in recognition.
By your rationale…Jose, how do you account for Tony Daniel?
He has pictures of Dan Didio doing some nasty shit.
Just like Khoi Pham has Quesade by the balls
And Jose hits the 3 pointer from behind the backboard
I get a assist
Case in point..Ultimates 3.Ultimatium.And God forgive me cuz I really WANTED to like it Ultimate Avengers.I have NOT read Red Hulk or Ultimate Enemy.
Did you watch the new Who yet Ryan?
I am downloading it as we type. Unfortunately, still gonna be about an hour and a half. Re-watched the second episode, the one with the StarWhale in. Can’t help but think in a British accent.
My lands, now that fucker’s coming in. T-minus twenty minutes til New Who. Who? The Doctor, that’s Who. The Doctor who’s Who.
Ok. The Who Thread will go up as soon as you say when. What’s it like to hold the power of the CCW blog in your hands?
Holy Whores on a Cracker, Batman! Do it when you like, I’ll be back in forty-some-odd minutes. My torrent is seeding.
I just started watching the new episode so wait 45 before you give it the go ahead LKR.
I’ll put it up at around Midnight Central Time.
We about to have a Who-Orgy up in this bitch
This is a picture from my favorite Dalek episode of Doctor Who…
…and this is a trailer for another great Dalek episode…
NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW
I read UA as well and I had the exact same reaction!! Without giving too much away,Cap’s big “plan”…really?The Skull’s true motivation…then why didn’t he just do that in #4 when he stole the cube instead of killing dozen of ppl and having a big fight w/heroes?I really wanted to give this one a chance cuz I liked Ultimates 1 and I’m fan Carlo’s art,but well…to paraphrase Johnny Rotten(Lydon), “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”
What happened in the issues, I don’t buy any Ultimate books?
I’ll put up a review of it later tonight (hopefully)
I await your Thunder sir!
Actually you’ll have to wait a bit longer. I’m not going to be able to get IM’s and my reviews up tonight. Probably tomrrow.
Well, get your ass in the chat room and I can give you some quick thoughts on it
Already there what’s yo handle?
I REALLY hope Jose puts up a review cuz I don’t wanna be spoiler guy.It was nothing shocking,it’s just the ultimate in lazy “writing”. I read it and felt like Mark’s thinking, “I can’t be bothered to put any effort into these f**king comics anymore.I got Hollywood meeting to make.”
Sounds about right.
Millar does seem taken with Hollywood now, who could blame him
Dude,I found an ifanboy clip earlier today.The screenwriter for Kick-Ass said something like “Mark came to us with the idea.He hadn’t even finished the comic book yet.” No freaking wonder the comic was so fuggin’ late! That shows you what he thinks of the fans that made him a marketable writer.
I don’t blame him for going for that Hollywood money,if I had the opportunity to I would too…I blame him for putting out piece of sh*t comics!As if the medium that made him semi-famous is beneath him now and he just can’t be bothered anymore.Is this the same guy that claimed he grew up in a left-wing house hold?
Can’t argue with that.
Personally I think he should leave the comics industry all together, make room for better writers like Dan Slott.
He’s always been the Michael Bay of comics let’s see him actually work with the real Bay and leave us be.
Did anyone see that promo for Scarlet by Bendis. I have a feeling he’s trying to rip off Hickman from what I saw. Which makes me excited for Hickman’s new Plus book I’m pretty sure that will have a more original story, and graphics that will blow my mind.
Well, knowing Bendis that book will only last 2 or 3 issues on the account of the main character getting her head ripped off.
HA HA HA
One Icon book doesn’t makeup for how he treats female characters in his mainstream works.
I think it’s Bendis’ way of placating the fans who don’t like the way he treats women.
Either way fuck that guy.
I second that!
Buy Hickman instead of Bendis is my new motto
It’s funny that’s been my motto for awhile. Bendis had his shot and I don’t think he’ll ever recover in my mind. I want to do a list of all the bad writing him and others like him have done. But I don’t think I have the time and/or the patience to do it without dying a little inside. Fucking lazy story telling. I rather just give the good more attention than the bad anyway.
Spotty that ain’t a bad idea a list/chart or Bendis, Leob and Millar showing how they went wrong. Theres a seed of a new thread idea in there
Count me out. I just want to focus on the positive, like MSpot says in his last sentence above. My life sucks enough without having to shit on my one true love: comics.
The CCW has gotten to where it is today by shitting on terrible comics though.
And it has been GLORIOUS!
Tom’s geek knowledge
Well…thanks, guys. Never knew you cared. I do love it when you shit on terrible comics, Jose.
And you forget King, your a valued member of the crew dude this blog wouldn’t be what it is without…
Jose’s Snark and suggestions
Musky’s writing & reviews
Gendark’s Merose nature
Cball’s shit talk
Variant Girl’s estrogen (It’s a cockfest up in here we need womens!)
and LKR’s artistic talent
Oh and Venom’s Creepiness! lest we forget
this is great deemar
I would vote Deemar CCW MVP. Your the Sgt. Hulka of our group, keeping us in line =)
Well if were Stripes characters I want to be Bill Murray always endorsing mud wrestling.
Life ain’t that bad.
You got friends here on CCW, a budding art career and internet porn!
What more could a guy want?
Sho’ ya’ Right! LOL
Time to bust out the Inspirational video =)
Perfect timing musky
Now let’s all hold hands in song
I’m in, just as long as I don’t have to hold Venom’s hand.
I JUST GOT OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😛
This should be the song:
Sorry I missed you in the chatroom I.M.
Guys should have said chat missed it also
If anyone can pull it off your the one for the job. I like what you did with this Open Thread even though I had to do a double take to make sure that the Golden Loeb wasn’t a golden dildo.LOL
Should have made it a dildo
Icky Thump! perfect venom
Sorry dude, I dig chicks!
Hey me too!
“Whew! that was close no one must know about my secret love affair with VENOM829.”
*Inner monologue’s inner monologue*
“Note to self buy 6pack of KY.”
Me cooking sausage (DON’T GET ANY !@#$ING DIRTY THOUGHTS!)
See Deemar has a secret crush with me
Loves the ladies even more now 🙂
Post a pic of me as my avatar, Deemar will lose crush!
EPIC WIN FOR ME !!!
here is a cheesy show from the past while we are at it
lucan the wolf boy i dont really remember the show but i remember thinking it was soo coolas a kid
Miss one day on here and it flys by jeez
Don’t forget new Doctor Who tonight.
I’m actually gonna watch!
ii just finished watching it and honestly i didnt expect moffat to be able to pull off another scary episode with weeping angels but i think he did it
remember way back when we listed out top pop culture heroes ? i think it was after E&J did a show on EW’s list. who wouldnt vote for the doctor after watching the first 4 episodes of this new series plus taking in account he’s been around since 1963 in tv, movies, audio plays, cartoons, comics, and novels the doctor ranks up there with top comic culture heroes of all time. i havent sen everybit of doctor who mostly tom baker and all of the russel t davis eraand ive sampled the rest and of course the past 4 episodes but smith and gillan are making a strong case for my favorite doctor/companion combo
I’m coming around on Doctor Who, I was just never a big fan. Quite enjoy it though.
I need to draw something who related
I was thinking the same thing. A Who drawing would be fun.
Do it boys. I want to see both.
I only spent about twenty minutes on it, in my defense: http://littlekingryan.deviantart.com/art/The-Good-Doctor-161881799.
ha, like I would forget.
Alright I’m going too grab a bite to eat, holla in an hour or so.
Has anyone seen the lame, pathetic preview for Ultimate Comics Avengers 2 #1? Only thing good? It was nice to see Leinil Francis Yu doing something in over a year.
Oh, Lord help me. First Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine and now this. Please someone talk sense to this guy and get him to team up with a decent writer.
It’ll never happen, once Lenil got a taste of that Bendis money it was a wrap.
Seven pages of the Punisher shooting guys from different angles. Fucking brilliant writing. There’s a third of your book, right there. I’ll be sure and pick up the “Foilogram” variant. I want to hasten the return of 90s style gimmick covers to go along with 90s style shit writing.
So do you guys like Lenil enough to still buy the comics with these horrible writers and story lines?
I would like to buy SOME of them, but the writer can know how to kick you in the balls (Loeb) with their plots 😦
My doctor said it’s better for my cholesterol
I don’t blame Yu for working with these cats it’s good money so from that angle I understand why.
I’m not sure I get it.Is Ultimate Punisher going to become Ultimate US Agent and then they go after Ghost Rider?It makes me sad cuz I’m an old school Avengers fan and after the latest arc I’m afraid it’s going to suck.But Deemar is right,it’s good money for the parties concerned.
Locust is Pvt. Soyer
I’m the BIG TOE
and funny enough I was a sgt in the army
methinks tis time for a bit of levity
at somewhere between 11 and 15 comes another of my fave comics (comedians, that is)
What is Robert Smigel doing now? Haven’t heard what he’s up to since TV Funhouse or did he do Wonder Shozen?
I love it Phil! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey, Jose, I’m working on a splash page-like drawing of BMB’s Avengers #1. Would you mind posting it here on the blog when I have it done? I’d love to get some exposure for it! Beware, though, it’s not very good and I’m not an artist…… yet. I’d just like to get some criticisms if I can and maybe use them to improve. Exspecially your critques. I know how heartless you can be when reviewing something you know is bad and that what I need above all else. If my pic is bad, please tell me it’s bad, why it’s bad, and so forth. Don’t hold back a bloody thing. I hope I’m asking for too much, I’d just like as honest an opinion as I get. So, what do you say?
The best thing to do is upload the image to photobucket or a website like it and post the link in one of our open threads like deemar, phil and pobra do. If you go to the fan art page on the blog you will see all their links to get an idea on where you can upload your pic.
I like J said
*Runs away for dear life*
Best thing is go to http://www.photobucket.com upload your pic and post the link in the Fan Art section of the blog.
On a slightly different note,I was thinking about doing a You Tube review of Lady Vengeance directed by Park Chan-Wook.I keep putting it off.Has anyone else seen this film?What do you guys think? I just brought it up here cuz the CCW Nation seem to have a varied film interest.
I’ve seen it and absolutely loved it. I’d be very interested in what you have to say about it.
You know she’s serious about vengeance when she’s putting on makeup and high heels.
I will watch this tonight, So now you must review it, or I wasted my night.
If you’re still interested,I just uploaded it to You Tube.Lemme know what you think of the movie!
Do it Do it!
I’ll support it
Thanks for the encouragement! I’ll put it up in the next few days!
I need to watch that again, as most of the movie is spent not knowing whether she was involved in the killings or not. The end was so grim…I love Chan-Wook though.
Flash Fact: I actually went to see this film on a first date…Which was also the last! Ha ha
Hey D5ever did u make it to the chatroom last night / yhes morning?
4ever that is
Can it be chat room time?
Ok, I’ve created a deviant art profile, but I still have no idea how to get in to this chat room… lil’ help?
never mind. please disregard.
looks like you found it at the exact moment I logged off DAMN!
Hey Tom. I was joking. Come back to the chatroom!
So whats up on this mutant deal now? Namor’s one? My understanding from back in the day was that Subby was a hybrid (whatever that means), but in Marvels’ milking it all for what she’s worth process, I guess it should come as no surprise that they would back-peddle away from this stance. How about the Falcon? I remember a while back that they were trying to push him off as a mutant as well. Giving him the ability to communicate with all birds, not just Redwing. Is that back in play?
On the DC side of things, any word yet who else is living again aside from (the big reveal folks at the end of BN8?
Namor always had the mutant x gene in him, Falcon, no clue. And I’m pretty sure more will be ressurected in BD1.
Depending on your definition of always, I’d have to say that I remember an issue of the Sub-mariner from ages ago, when the mutant deal was 1st brought up. At that time, Marvels’ stance was that he was not a mutant…case closed. When mutants began to become popular, Marvel started altering its initial premise with Namor and convieniently put his “mutancy” back in to play.
Its not unlike what they’ve done with the Vision. You ask most folks these days what the Vision is ( prior to his disassembling ) and they’d say android, but back in the day he was referred to as a synthnezoid or something like that. So its like whatever’s expediant for Marvel at a given time is what they go with.
What’s the difference between an android and a synthnezoid?
Marvel’s non cleverness 🙂
Where is everybody?
I’m here, but I’ve gotta go soon.
As of 15 min ago or so; myself, Pobra , mast, and cbDude were in the chatroom.
I left the window open, but I don’t know if anyone’s still there.
I mean my name is up, but I’m in a different window
I’ll probably be back there 3ish if not 4ish
No chatting for me now. I’m at work.
Gotta make that cheddah
Bummer ’bout workin’ the weekend, though 😦
Hope you’ll be doin’ some episode tapings with Elliot when you’re done 😛
My CCWtv intake was low, thank JEEBUS new episodes
We didn’t review anything though. All we did was rant about shit for an hour.
Hum, Spoiler Alert please!
Rants are my favorite part, hell Jose you haven’t went off in awhile.
Ha!A friend of mine came over this morning around 6am,she just looked at me cuz she could tell I was hungover.211 not for lightweights. By the way,have I shared my feelings about Scott Summers?
Jesus hates Cyclops, So should you.
211, yowza! I used to work with a guy who called that “crack beer”. I hope you’ve learned your lesson, young man.
I must have missed this 211 during my wild and crazy drinking days.
What’s worse is a brand called Camo “Black Ice”.It has an alcohol content of something like 10%.It’s brutal stuff.
Best news I’ve heard this month…
…I’m not a member of PETA and I still eat meat but torturing/killing animals for entertainment makes me want to kill every person involved. Score 1 for the bulls!!!!
That is cool, indeed.
It’s dead up in here, everybody recovering from hangovers heh!
and caffeine highs 🙂
Non drinker you
I think I got a sympathy hangover. I bent over to put in a new trash bag and threw up a little in my nose. It burnt like hell. I slept all damn day and now I’m raring to go. Just thought you’d all like to know that.
loved the movie pilot, the tv series, not so much
style wise, i preferred the civilian suited Mantis with just the Mask exposed
substance wise; the series seemed dumbed down from what the pilot was
such potential, lost
although were it done right… it would still have been hard to push it thru
I liked the actual mantis suit sans clothing
It was a head of it’s time.
If they ever get around to making a Black Panther movie Carl Lumbly better have a role, at least T’challa’s father.
agreed on T’challa’s father
in a casting call video I made I put the guy that does the mind wiping as the Panther.
Jimmi Jean Luis
Yeah he’d be good, but for me it’s either Idris Elba or Chiwetel Jifoir (Fucked his named all up) Black dude from Serenity.
I think he may be too small. But he is a great actor.
from Serenity, the only person of color I remember was Ron Glass
unless u’re talking about the dude that was in the finale…a bounty hunter or something like that
The dude with the sword in the movie
Chiwetel is badass. But so is Idris Elba, being a huge fan of the Wire. It’s really a toss-up. I think Elba may just edge out the win. Ever see Kinky Boots? That’s why.
Since I’m a recovered Joss Whedon fan(couldn’t get into Dollhouse, thought Astonishing X-Men plummeted in quality after the first story arch, dropped his Buffy comic after a couple issues, and thought the last few seasons of Buffy ruined the near perfect first 3-4 seasons), I wasn’t expecting to like Serenity but Chiquita Jafar(however you spell his name) stole that entire movie. I’ve since seen him in a few other movies since then and he’s now one of those actors that makes me interested in a movie as soon as I hear he’s in it.
Have you seen Redbelt, I think you would really like it, if you haven’t seen it.
Yep. Mamet & Tim Allen.
my bad, I was thinkin’ bout the series
Anybody else want Brubaker to return to Incognito?
Man, I loved it. I think there’s room for a few more stand-alone’s maybe…
I HAVE heard that they are going to do more Incognito, this first series just kind of set up this world they have for so much more. I think they could do a couple more volumes, but I would probably say that about anything phillips and brubaker do.
Oh nice. Without a doubt it was a fun series. I prefer it over Criminal to be honest. IDK. But I haven’t read into Criminal as much… so I might rephrase that later 😉
I think you might, I love both, but Criminal is one of the best books out there.
Yeah, they’re doing more Incognito next. Says so in the back pages of the last Criminal. I think Phillips may also be doing the next arc of the Dark Tower. Not sure where that fits in. But I do know is more Incognito next before they get back to Criminal.
Anybody see the JG Jones cover for Doc Savage, it looks horrible. What hell happened, he usually does outstanding work.
They all suck 😦
broke his ass
Does anyone have anything bad to say about Losers? I was about to put on my shoes and go see it but can’t find my left shoe. So if anyone can give a convincing argument for it being a piece of shit it would really help me out; giving me an excuse to stop looking for the shoe and maybe start in on that apple I’ve been thinking about eating.
Ummm…why don’t you just wrap a plastic (or paper) bag around your left foot and go see the movie? Shoes are fucking overrated anyway.
I knew you was a hobbit
Because of little rocks mostly. But you’ve skillfully uncovered the real problem: I just don’t want to leave the apartment. Those fuckers out there are cold blooded!
My Left Foot
Haven’t seen it yet good luck with that buddy
You only have one pair of shoes?
Check out Daddy Warbucks over here.
Well, it is a hard knock life.
AvS, I love your posts. Not just like them. Between this and more little E. Montgomery hats, I stand in awe of your wit, if not your wisdom. Were you the one who compared J. to a drunken stepfather? Classic.
That wasn’t me. I imagine that dude got an empty bottle thrown at him though.
Does anyone watch Smallville on this blog? Friday’s episode was dealing with some Clark and Lois issues, but why I wanted to post it here was to see if anyone had any insight on The Red Queen? Who do you think this is? With Maxwell Lord showing up in this episode and showing the Red Queen wearing Red Boots, could it be Wonder Woman?? I’ve never read the Suicide Squad so some information in there may have helped me but I can’t find any info on a Red Queen from the DCU at all. Please post your thoughts and insights into this.
I do watch it, I will be watching the new episode tonight, so i will get back to you.
WARNING: We will both be ridiculed for watching this show and admitting it here on the CCW boards. Some fools like to think that they are too good for shitty versions of our favorite characters presented in a teen pop way, and they don’t watch, well I say so what if no one can act on the show, I still like it.
But we only ridicule you out of love. 🙂
Heck yeah, I’ll take my Superman any way I can.
I watch Life Unexpected so I really don’t have the right to ridicule anyone.
ya you don’t
Don’t test me.
This is no test, Life Unexpected=Garbage.
Well, if I actually did watch the show I may have been insulted but I really don’t. Seems to me you’re the only out of the two of us watching a garbage show. 😛
I’m able to admit I like awesomely horrible show, and I actually have never even heard of Life Unexpected. 🙂
Well, if you have never heard of Life Unexpected than you are really missing out of a great sh…er, I mean…
I only saw the JSA absolute justice episode and couldn’t stop laughing at the over acting by Hawkman.
You know that was Michael Shanks aka Dr. Daniel Jackson from SG:1… Yeah I know that 5 O’Clock shadow threw me off as well
I saw that episode too. Overall it was ok but, ya, Hawkman’s overacting and his love of puns was almost too much.
I wasn’t to concerned with the acting as I was forced to realize that the Hawkman costume doesn’t translate well to live action. It’s much better on the page.
This is true.
Yeah, I watched it with my brother, who is a huge Stargate fan but not so into comics, and we were both a little embarrassed, and chagrined by our respective interests. Not translate well? How about at all?
Is Life Unexpected the one with that hot girl who was on ER for a while? Her name is….data banks processing…Shiri Appleby! Knew I could come up with it. Never watched the show and yet I am a fan.
That just happened to be the episode written by Geoff Johns. Irony? Not really!
That show lost me by season 5
I was gone by the third season.
I’d seen every episode up until the first Zatanna one. I still mean to catch up on the episodes I’ve missed(about a season and a half but I still haven’t). I probably can top that for embarassing TV. I’m in love with Lauren Graham so I started watching Parenthood. Considering she was a last second replacement on a show that’s the second attempt to make a TV show based on a movies that’s over 20 years old, I wasn’t expecting to like it. It’s actually a pretty good show that seems to get better with each episode. Although, it’s no Grey’s Anatomy. What?
GUYS I am… Uhh I am scared.
I read an interview where Grant Morrison wants to kinda touch base on Bruce’s parents. As if their fate was different but Bruce still became Batman.
Guys – this is not good. If Grant actually retcons the death of Batman’s parents then… All’s lost.
Is it possible that Mr. Morrison, a comic legend is planning to do something completely awful?
Citizens of the CCW nation… we must stop this.
Coming from one of the biggest Batman fans of the CCW Nation, I’m not really worried, he already tried that stiff in his last run on Batman so this won’t matter, he is trying to do something with Thomas Wayne in Batman & Robin #13
Don’t be scared Mikef we will get through this.
Haha I know but still, so many origin edits have been thrown around in DCU as o lately. Makes my brain sigh.
And here I said last night that Uncle Ben and the Wayne parents are the only comic book characters that are sure to stay dead. Maybe I spoke too soon…
Dude, don’t you know that Thomas Wayne was really Bruce Wayne time traveling? He had sex with his own mom AND is his own father!
Batman’s origin is Batman’s origin, nothing that Morrison does will affect that, I wish people wouldn’t get so tied up in knots over stories that haven’t been published yet.
Yeah, when I saw this – I almost cried at the fact that I don’t live anywhere near this place -__-
I did cry when I saw this…in my pants.
I had to play it while I saw the pics
Then again I play this about on average 3-5 times a day so…
Sweet lord I just looked at the preliminary books coming out this week. Does Marvel know no bounds? I had to hit my scroll wheel ten times on a 22″ wide screen, most of the clicks due to variants
It’s those damn Iron Man variants. If you have money, Marvel will find a way to get it from you.
80 Books including variants 48 excluding the variants. Wow I don’t have that kind of money, and I can’t imagine who does.
That is so ridiculous.
Marvel always do this shit at the end of a quarter year. You would think that proper scheduling would dictate an even spread of titles but Marvel leave some weeks barren and then unload a torrent of shit in one week. In the same vein they’ll put out 2 or 3 Avengers books in a week and then have nothing for weeks afterwards.
I have the series on VHS.
There’s got to be a way to tar and feather Joey Q in real life? Because thats what I do in my mind on a daily basis.
Really? Cuz I’m thinking about a swimming pool full of money and lesbians on a daily basis, but hey, I guess we’re all different.
It’s one of many things that get me through the day.
Don’t buy his books. That’s the only way to hurt him(without actually hurting him where you’ll just end up in prison). It was hard at first due to my decades long love of the Marvel U but I sleep like a baby on Wednesday nights knowing I’m not giving a penny to a company that has made a non-talent like JoeyQ rich. I even plan on skipping Iron Man 2(although with “The Wrestler” and “Mrs. Hal Jordan” in starring roles, it’s not that hard a sacrifice).
Apparently fistfights broke out amongst otaku over a few figurines of Yui…those wacky japs!
how long did last nights / this morning’s chat go onfor, Jose?
