LOL, I kind of understand why you linked this Jose, awesome, I LOVE IT!
Got to love a video that can sneak in a ‘Alabama Hot Pocket’ reference and still be funny! =)
Good one Jose!
Dare I ask what a Alabama Hot Pocket is?
I wouldn’t type it into a search engine if I were you =)
Hee hee 🙂
The one where she has the confrontation with the cop is prety fun as well. 😛
ATTENTION CCW NATION:
I HAVE STARTED MY OWN BLOG, AND HERE IT IS:
Maybe if Jose would like to, he could add in the friends of the program,
AND DON’T CLICK ON MY ACCOUNT NAME SINCE I HAVE ANOTHER BLOG, BUT I WANT THAT ONE FOR MY PERSONAL USE. THE ONE I LINKED TO IS THE ONE I HAVE INVITED ALL OF YOU TO SEE AND COMMENT! THANK-YOU! 😛
i think i like you, your thoughts and or opinions are like mine 😄
Thanks, much appreciated
Welcome to the club.
The New Universe was not so hot,but here’s something cool from the 80’s Now lemme tell ya ’bout when we had these things called cassette tapes…
I was little boy when we had those things 🙂
Man back in the day, making a good mixed tape could make or break your popularity in school. It was an art form to get just the right songs and put them on tape in one piece without it sounding like shit.
Oh, and that chick from Bow Wow Wow was hot as hell back in the 80’s, I remember there was a big stink however when people found out she was only like 15 or 16.
yes and she was photographed in the nude on their first album cover. The late Malcolm Mclaren was the groups manager.
I don’t know anything about Bow Wow Wow but, after Googling about it, I now feel dirty that practically every picture involves a half nude underage girl. How did they get away with that without getting in trouble for kiddie porn? Although, for some reason, album covers by Blind Faith & The Scorpions featured totally nude underage kids as well and none of them were put in jail.
i had such a crush on her back in 80s !!!!! they were no noubt about 15 to 20 years to early
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND THINK OF ENGLAND!!!
Free Comic Book Day is today!
Can this thread reach 500?
Lets make that our goal! 😛
Buzz kill 😉
Ah dude, I hit the wrong one, didn’t want to link this, but I accidently did so… 😦
YES!!!!!!!!!!!! All caps and exclamation marks always wins, Jose.
no not 500…..lets make IT OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!
That joke never gets old. It has so many different applications.
I think we can just let YOU do that one on your own 😉
here’s to 666 comments.
That’s about the same merits of my artistic talent.
RIP Bruno Kirby.
I was trying to link this:
Fuck! I forgot Bruno Kirby died. Here I just made a comment about him not having a career anymore. Now I’m depressed and feel like a real asshole. City Slickers 2 sucked without Bruno Kirby. There, I hope that helps my karma a little.
I sometimes forget that Billy Crystal used to be funny, Meg Ryan used to be hot, Rob Reiner used to be a top director, and Bruno Kirby used to have a career. That movie is a classic but it depresses me when you look at its talent today.
Put this right… here:
Disjointed thy name is Casino Royale:
Yeah, I’d like to take that back. It was funnier when I was 8.
Man, that movie is a classic! Haven’t seen it in so long.
I should have picked a better scene:
love the cannonball run too loved captain chaos
Burt Reynolds & Dom Deluise, the best skinny & fat comedic duo since Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello. They weren’t up to the quality of the other 2, but their undeniable chemistry on & offscreen made them great.
i love this movie love the jonthan winters in the gas station scene and of course dick shawn flying down the highway crying “momma im coming momma!!!”
Great movie! Sellers rivals the great Bob Newhart when it comes to one-sided phone calls.
Yes! If you know of any video of Newhart doing one of those phone bits you should post it. I remember seeing one floating around a while back but a quick look around and I can’t find any, only a crappy video wt. bad audio of a victrola.
That’s all I could find as well. Bob Newhart is one of only 2 comedians I’ve seen live in concert. The other was Adam Sandler(with a guest appearance by Chris Farley). Go figure.
Batman and Robin dopplegangers on the fan aet page.
hope this works
no one has an opinion on the Thor pic?
i saw that last night and it actually got me excited a little. Thor is the marvel movie i rather see then iron man or cap. the suit looks nice, i just wish he wore the helmet too.
I’m certainly no Thor fan, but if a picture can get me geeked about seeing a movie…thats the picture!
now for a photo of Antman 🙂
meeeeeh….antman i dont know. i rather see the atom. but even then. it would be interesting to see a shrinking super hero on screen.
i like the hair and beard i wish the suit looked more like armor then a costume but doesnt look too bad the cape looks perfect thats what i was worried about the most if it would look silly
Antman! There’s another potentially interesting film stuck in development hell.I think they were going to use both Scott Lang and Hank Pym?
Hey, their going for the Copiel redesign, I like it. 🙂
I could be wrong, but I think that’s why they re-designed Thor’s costume to begin with; to make something they feel would work better for a movie. I also wouldn’t be surprised if we get a “pinecone Cap” design for Chris Evans. Either Marvel is taking tips from Millar or Marvel is where Millar learned that movies are wayyyy more important that the comics they’re based on.
I recently read Alan Moore’s run on Supreme and was a little disappointed to find it didn’t have a real conclusion. I know it’s old new but I figured Id just say that and see where it goes.
I believe he also wrote a few issues of Youngblood that were never finished.I think it may have had to do with Rob liefield’s financial backers pulling out of his company.
Did you read Supreme:Returns as well? The Kirby tribute issue by Moore and Veitch was one of the best single issue books I’ve ever read. I think it got nominated for an eisner a few years ago as well.
I saw that.I thought it was brilliant.
i read some supreme back when it was new i thought the premise was interesting but dropped it pretty quickly. then picked it up when alan moore started doing it and it was superman plain and simple and said to myself if i want to read superman ill just read superman not waste time with a clone
so i dropped that too
Its Superman written by Alan Moore, and it was better than 95% of Superman stuff written since Man of Steel.
It’s basically Alan Moore wanting to write DC characters, but not wanting to go back to DC
which is what ABC was meant to be in some ways…until Ironically Wildstorm got bought by DC
Supreme is a Sentry ripoff.
Thought ya’ll would like to see this here trailer.
since when did jonah have magical powers?
ill be seeing it
He always has, hence the name “Hex”, He doesn’t use them in most comics but he always has had them.
WOW i want to see this now, mind you i wish megan fox wasnt in it but i rather see this then iron man 2….
O, I’d rather prefer Iron Man 2 than this. Megan Fox=Bad Movie
General, come on, this looks half as good as Iron Man 2.
NO, johna hex :P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P i will not have this insubordination. *drops you in pit with sharks with freaking lazer beams attached to there head* hmm ebedently my cycloptic colouge informs that cant be done 😦
Are you sure about Hex always having powers? I could be wrong since I haven’t read every comic he’s ever appeared in, but, unless you’re just referring to the Vertigo version of him(I never read those minis), I don’t remember him ever having magical powers. If he did, why couldn’t he fix his face?
I really want to see it. I’m going to have to shield my eyes from Megan Fox’s toe thumbs during the movie though.
I heard they CGIed them to look like normal. Used up like 2 million dollars of the budget just for that. Money well spent if you ask me.
OMG that’s hilarious! I totally think that it’s money well spent, they freak me out and give me chills.
Anybody reading the Doctor Who series by Tony Lee. I like it because it really captures the feeling of the David Tennant series.
I think I’m going to miss Free Comic Book Day. I won’t make it to my local shop until noon.
i dont get out till 12:30 and im going to try and make it. i keep forgetting its today tho.
im going to miss it completely could someone please post what they gave out this year
i shall try, i only know of war of the supermen. but i will try to repond to ya
Here’s all the comics they gave out.
FCBD was great this year! I got 12 books that I’m actually looking forward to reading. Usually there’s only 4 or 5 decent ones.
Iwish I had missed FCBD
Yeah I’m in KY and it’s derby day here. I didn’t have time to go to my store, some parties only come once a year like FCBD too 🙂
Ah, yes a good party is always a good party.
Truer words have never been spoken good sir.
Of course, we must agree on true wisdom. 😉
Oh, lord. Derby Day. I’m not sure from your comment, but FCBD>Derby Day for me. I’m in KY, too. I could not care less about horseracing or gambling. I’m a just a little miffed that the shop I went to didn’t have a lot of the best offerings.
has anyone been reading the NOMAD back up series in cap? i could be wrong (and i usually am ) but did sean mckeever just go YURI with her and aracna?
i would love to hear peoples thoughts on this strip as a whole it seems to me to an ok but unspectacular all ages comic and its paired with brubaker’s more mature storytelling approach cap series. does anyone think that its a good match? why does tom breevoort and lauren sankovitch think it is?
Becaue Breevoort is a fucking idiot.
It is suck a wierd contrast between the Nomad back-up and main Cap story.
I don’t see how this is going to relate to the main Cap story, at least it isn’t wiki padding.
I think their hoping that those that read Cap will read Mckeever’s young allies. I probably won’t but will see.
I gave up buying Cap when it went to 3.99 but I have read a couple of the nomad backups and I haven’t been impressed. Its light but not funny, its neither one thing nor the other, it dosen’t serve as a good advert for Young Allies.
“Becaue Breevoort is a fucking idiot.”
That is an unfair statement, you’re insulting one part more than it deserves to be insulted. And by ‘that part’ I don’t mean Tom B.
lol thats cold luiz
What, I am just being honest, while he keeps saying the stuff he says, doing ‘editorial job’ as he does, and behaving like a jerk, to me he will always be lower than an idiot 😛
Anytime I hear Breevoort’s name that thought pops into my head only because he was the one that greenlit Reborn and mishandled that whole mini and threw Brubaker under the bus because of it. Now it seems like Brubaker has not fully recovered from that since. The last couple of issues were OK and had some of the things that I like in Brubaker’s writing that I liked from Criminal, but there no where near Criminal level or pre Cap #601.
You know you’ve been reading too much Manga when you speak English but use a Japanese term to describe a lesbian. LOL!
I was never the biggest McKeever fan, but his going over to DC has made him unreadable. I tried to read his Nomad mini(I don’t know why since I hate Marvel & was never fond of Liefeld’s female Bucky) but I couldn’t make it past the first issue.
why do i get the feeling E’s car kept getting dirty that day
Theat would be awesome to see.
I would like to hear Elliot and Jose’s thoughts on Joey Q. writing Spider-Man…again? I have a bad feeling about, and I don’t think I need to explain why.
Hey Jose, I picked up the new Tegan and Sara today. So there will be no need for bloodshed 😛
Let me know what you think of it.
I had to view the last three installments of the CCW video channel in one sitting (not that it is a bad thing) and seeing that you mention the Golden Loeb, and the most likely winner so far, I think you should issue some other awards, like for example: The Golden Liefeld, to the artist that is more inexplicably popular despite the fact that his art sucks, the Joe Mad award to the most incosistent (or consistently late) artist of the year, and the Golden Simmons for the most blatant rip off. Oh, sorry, “homage”.
Joe Mad and the Golden Summers can be both named after Mark Millar when you think about it.
I almost feel like suggesting adding the Golden Bendis to your list for the writer who has the most boring pointless long dialogues combined with the worst/most numerous plot devices in a single history, but I think that for years to come Bendis would himself win that one multiple times a year, so quite pointless.
haha lol i’m hoping he gets act together for avengers the heroic age
The Chuck Austen award for most mentally ill writer
Another award that could be based on Mark Millar! 😛
Millar would probaly be honored too have such an award named after him
Chuck Austen still wrote better dialogue & soap opera type drama than Bendis imho. He wasn’t a great writer, but he wasn’t totally talentless.
Austen’s problem,he didn’t have a filter of self-edit button.
From what I understand, that goes for his writing as well as his online interaction with fans. Although, considering a fanboy once wrote that he hoped Austen died in a fire(probably the worst thing I’ve ever read online involving an upset fan and a comic writer/artist), maybe he had a point in getting snarky & eventually leaving the industry.
You think if someone said the same thing to Bendis maybe he would leave the industry too? Or is that just wishful thinking?
I wish it were that easy. I think for Bendis to leave the industry, you’d probably need an exorcism. Either that, or a doctor who specializes in removing tumors.
Why can’t there be an inept comic book talent with the last name Showers?
Good who tonight
Haven’t seen it yet. Still waiting…
just saw ironman 2 on a torrent… i think its kinda a letdown. was not expecting much but man, blackwidows acting is kinda bad, and the villain whiplash is really out there and doesnt fit at all.
i know finding a ironman villain is hard that would work in a movie. (probally as bad as a superman one) but still. awkward film all around.
now the new doctor who. that was great.
Ah, I want it to be good 😦
n00b question, whats a torrent?
A type of computer extension where you can track files, and download them such as moves, music, comics, etc.
ah, well if its true then it confirmed my suspicionse that this movie will be bad, ah the thought of pissed of fan bois 😀
dont base you seeing it on my word. i didnt like parts of the first one either.
it just was not what i expected. i was hoping for itto grow into more of a comic book film and less just action and star cameos.
nick fury is strange and not a badass just kind of a dick.
seems like they took away his espinoage secret goverment vibe
well of all the charecters in the movie, nick fury is a pretty big disapointment.
That’s because it’s Ultimate Nick Fury. I love Sam Jackson but my Nick Fury is the bad ass good guy from 616(pre-Bendis of course). The Ultimate Nick Fury is a fucking scumbag who makes Henry Peter Gyrich look like a respectable government agent.
Not for me I am a admitted Sam Jackson fanatic, but I think he’ll be fun.
Other than maybe Bruce Willis or Clint Eastwood I can’t see any other actor being able to command respect and presence of personality to stand with a bunch of Superheroes in a movie.
definatly loving the new matt smith series hey jose when are you starting up the doctor who thread we need to discuss what happened to the angels and what he doctor said about the cracks in time
I will in a few hours. I haven’t seen it yet.
I just started the episode now!
It’s really good. I’ll put the Doctor Who thread up in about a half hour.
Stealing is wrong friend….
…so got a link
free comicbook day. i got my atomic robo, tick, and that hellboy/bprd issue from 2007(saved money on ebay!)
my shop also gave out other books so i got solomonkane and spiderman 600 for free. weird but awesome!
is it true marvels free one is a iron man thor team up written by matt fraction and art by john romati jr.
F’d CBD: I p’d/u…Mouseguard/fragglerock…MG was good
Dr. Solar/Magnus DS was tolerable
Irredeemable/Incorruptible The 2nd I was enjoyable Will soon p/u 1st trade
jeremy i like your green refridgerator
personally i can’t wait to read matt fraction’s thor i didn’t read his thor one shots but i heard they where amazing i guess this free comic book is a jumping on point for any people who don’t know that much about thor or iron man and are getting into them because of the movies.
His minis were good. I’m not weighing in on the FCBD issue because my fucking comic shop didn’t have any. Yes, I’m a little disappointed. Did someone say torrent?
We couldn’t possibly use torrents?
I’d be more enthusiastic if fucking Marvel didn’t shove him to the curb because Gillen was doing so successful with the title. Its almost like the Conan/Leno thing. One guy SHOULD be there and was told to be there and then they realize “oh Gillen’s doing well, let’s let him stay even tho we already told Matt to come…”
I think its more likely that the delay is because Ferry is slow with the artwork.
Hope everyone got a good stash on FCBD. Got the latest Walking Dead (you guys got any opinions on this book?) and Invincible #1 reprint and #71, which I haven’t read yet. I picked up Incorruptible/Irredemable as an afterthought, and it’s was a damn good read. Very interesting premise.
Walking Dead is one of the most consistently good books on the market. Without being spoilerish, you have to wonder how long the present circumstances in that book will last. Like Invincible, it actually creates real suspense, instead of merely taking a passing glance at it. Support creator-owned books!
Predictions: Wolverine kills Matt Murdoch in the upcoming SHADOW-LAND event and then Foggy takes up the role of Daredevil.
I completeley disagree, it’s going to be written by Andy Diggle, so I have high hopes for it, and I don’t think that will happen. (It better not).
Did you actually read my comment? Do you honestly think for a second anyone would take Foggy as Daredevil seriously? This is known as a sarcasm towards a company that’s been very ridiculous lately.
(altho in several promo’s, they’ve hinted towards DD’s death) NO ONE is retarded enough to make Foggy DD.
Do you know who Foggy is?
Wait your a die-hard Batman fan right? Then let me put it in terms you’d follow.
“Joker kills Bruce Wayne and ALFRED becomes the new Batman.”
lol. Seriously tho, this event will be epic! (better than siege, secret invasion, civil war, etc)
I’m just givin ya’ a hard time, don’t take things to seriously, and yes I know who Foggy is, I read some Daredevil G.N.’s that I have interest in. lol, it’s all about fun! 🙂
haha, for a second I thought SOMEONE though Foggy would make a good DD.
IDK, the very image of it makes me laugh so hard. BTW, I was meaning to ask if you could recommend a good Batman Trade. I’ve read Killing joke, Man who Laughs, Long Halloween, and Caped Crusader.
anything else worth checking?
Up for some SSF4 Mike?
Yeah man. But Warning: I just put in my Bubblegum Crisis OST so I’m in the mood for some serious battles, lol.
Alright, give me 5 minutes and I’ll be on there.
I could recommend No Man’s Land, Year One, Tales Of The Demon, (Origin Of Ra’s Al Ghul), Bruce Wayne: Fugutive, and Knightfall.
Thanks man! I’ll start with Year One I guess 🙂
Year One is really good. One of the best Batman stories.
People always reference it I noticed.
Also, good match tonight man. I might get back on later. That last match was fun. Vega is hard so I gotta retrain a lot more…
Just leave a message on here if you go on. Don’t now how much later I’ll be up. Gotta work tomorrow. If not tonight in the next couple of days definitely.
Everybody talks about Year One, it is good, but like The Dark Knight (the movie) it is really overrated.
By what criteria do you believe its overrated, V29?
Yeah sure then they’ll change the title too
Daredevil: Man with high cholesterol!
Damn missed a whole thread convo
Hey everybody, here’s a preview of Secret Avengers, yes, a NON-BENDIS AVENGERS COMIC:
i’m not a big fan of brubaker because he has a hard on for steve rogers but this line up definately looks the best
Drinking a cold beer and watching Cloverfield how could my night be any better. Forgot how AWESOME this movie is. HOw does everyone else feel about it.
I really liked it. Thought it was very well done.
I myself am drinking beer and watching the this week’s episodes of Fringe, Supernatural and Doctor Who.
Cloverfield is great if you want a headache.
The whole shakey-cam thing is way overdone and the shifting back and forth pov shots are fair annoying.
I didn’t hate it as much as some, but overall it was a disappointment. The hot girl dies, the funny guy is behind the camera the whole time(I’m a big fan of T.J. Miller), a lot of gaps in logic(the amount of time it takes to get to the girl’s apartment should have taken a lot longer; you’re in danger and out of breath but you keep filming?) and the creature’s design rivaled Bay’s Transformers for cgi shit. IMHO, of course. 8)
very cool I’ve been meaning to watch Fringe I guess I was banking on it coming to instant Netflix. I’m on season 3 of Buffy thanks to that. Hey jose have you ever read Crossed by Garth Ennis. I just finished reading it the other day. It was a solid book it had some pretty gruesome scenes almost a little too far, but I feel like it helped explain the extremity of the nature of the Crossed. When I was reading it, it reminded me of you and elliots review of Ultimate Avengers. The violence was pretty shocking, but it actually had emotional depth. If you haven’t read it I definately recommend it.
The hard cover collection just came out this week. I’ll check it out when I get a chance. Thanks.
I have zero interest in Crossed, its just shock for shocks sake in my opinion.
If you want to read an Ennis comic thats actually well written, then read Battlefields, its one of the best books out there at the moment.
I’ll respectfully disagree that the violence is strictly for shock and awe(although I think it is part of it, but more to get the audiences attention), but I have heard Battlefield is really good I will check it out.
I saw The Losers yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I don’t know why it isn’t having much box office success. It’s PG-13(R rated movies usually lose a lot of money from potential underage ticket buyers), has a very charismatic cast(Chris Evan steals all his scenes but proves to me he’s all wrong for Captain America), some pretty cool action scenes, and a villain who chews his way through the scenery(I’m surprised it was Jason Patric since he’s always been so bland in other movies I’ve seen him in). All I can think is that it’s not connecting with movie audiences because it’s not a known property, none of the cast are really household names, it looks too similar to the more well known A-Team, and I’m not the only one who thinks Zoe Saldana is all skin & bones(and neck). Oh well. Since I’m not sure I want to see Kick Ass & Iron Man 2 and Jonah Hex looks like ass, at least one good comic book movie came out this year imho.
That is very good to hear. I’m going to try to see this movie during the week.
yeah kick ass was good you should go see it before it drops off the face of the earth also jonah hex does look but i don’t know it’s so hard to make a good western as will smith’s wild wild west can tell you also am going to see iron man 2 tomorrow it looks awesome.
There is this ‘Sentry’ pic on CBR and man it makes me laugh http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/4278/majinboob.jpg and I do think Bendis’ Sentry is pretty much like that 😛
HA ha…awesome. That is exactly who the Sentry is under Bendis. 🙂
I wonder if I should post a list of the similarities. Its quite lengthy even for me, and I still think it is rushed and incomplete.
Cracked has a list of most unintentionally offensive superheroes. It’s awesome.
Man do I miss Cracked Magazine! In its heyday, when it had John Severin, Don Martin, and Daniel Clowes, I liked it better than Mad.
Also, from that list, Lois looked hotter when she was black. I’m just sayin’.
Being naive at that time, I actually liked Tyroc. I remember him being powers-wise like a cross between Banshee and BlackBolt. He had that sonic scream, whose sound could manifest into solid objects if I’m remembering correctly. I must have blocked out the reprehensible backstory or paid it no nevermind at the time
And man, Mike Grell’s rationalle 4 why he designed Tyrocs’ costume that way (sure it was in protest, but still)
Well…the things you see with fresh eyes, huh? I remember diggin’ Tarzan, also, but I won’t even go into that.
cracked always has great lists
my boy falcon made number 1 damn but i always hated that snap wilson stuff
chrisopher priest started using it again on his cap and falcon series but we never got to know where he was going to take it they cancelled it still makes me sad loved that run
Ex Machina is pronounced ” ex mach-ee-nah” not “ex ma-sheen-ah”.
That is all.
Yeah Ex Ma-Sheen-ah is Charlie Sheen’s Ex wife
I somehow got it in my head as a little kid that the H in Thor was silent. I passed on this incorrect info to my friends. I also pronounced Avengers as av-n-gers. It’s hard to believe I was at the head of my class all throughout grade school when I thought stupid shit like this.
anyone reading SOLOMON KANE?
i got the first mini and now the deaths riders is out? was wondering if its good or not.
i need more horror comics.
I did capsule reviews for issues 2 and 3 of Deaths Black Riders in my last Rants & Raves column
The trailer to Inception looks so ridiculous. Its just Han Zimmer hitting a drum ever five seconds. Man, what a joke.
Anyone see the preview of Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine #1, it looks interesting. (it’s Jason Aaron) But anyone else think that Spidey looks a little like Alan Moore for some reason.
Hello, there. Would it be wrong to tell you all I just saw Iron Man 2 and thought it was just meh. This wasn’t bad, but the first difinitely outshines it more ways than one.
That seems to be the popular consensus so far.
that was very funny
i hadnt been to the shop in a few months just got a HUGE stack of books
man it sucks to be cheshire this year
I just saw “How To Train Your Dragon” and much to my surprise, I fucking loved it!!! I’ve always been more of a Pixar guy. In fact, I’ve even enjoyed the few cgi animated movies from Blue Sky/20th Century Fox than what Dreamworks has given us. I’ve always found Dreamworks movies to be all pop culture references with little in terms of humor and about as much of a sincere heart as a “very special episode” of an 80’s sitcom. After “Kung-Fu Panda” & “Dragon”, I now feel Dreamworks has the potential to be as good as Pixar. This movie had cooler creature designs & breathtaking dragon flying scenes than “Avatar”, badass Vikings that made me even less excited for “Thor” than I already was(if there is any accuracy to their wardrobe in this movie, Kirby’s Thor costume looked more genuine than the medieval armor Coipel gave him), and Craig Ferguson as a 1-armed, 1-legged Viking blacksmith. I hope this movie continues its legs and doesn’t fade away with the latest Platinum Dunes “opus”(to be honest, I haven’t seen the latest “Nightmare On Elm Street” but I’ve seen the rest of their crappy theatrical movies) and “Iron Man 2:ScarJo Can’t Act”.
what did everyone think of the Iron Man and Thor book on Free Comic book day? I honestly thought it was okay I thought the art was pretty mediocre and the story was pretty solid, but not great. I thought last years avengers story was a lot better.
I was impressed with the War of the Superman book was pretty good. I haven’t been reading Superman or the World of Krypton books, but this book helped me catch up on what was going on and what to expect for the mini-series. The fact that it’s only 4 issues makes me curious to check it out especially since I plan on reading Superman during JMS’s run. I’m hesitant to pick it up because I haven’t heard anything good about any of James Robinson’s current books. I may just pick of the first issue just to see how it is.
I thought the Iron Man/Thor book was pretty good. Romita struggles a bit with the new Iron Man armor, but a nice, solid little story with great art and those gorgeous watercolor-like Dean White colors. It was good, self-contained, and obviously aimed at getting a few new readers into comic shops after leaving the movie theaters this summer (or whenever Thor comes out). I wish I had a hard copy. Last year’s Marvel offering was great, too, and probably the only full-length book Jim Cheung has done in two years. I prefer it to this year’s Free Comic Day comic by a small margin. Alas, I couldn’t get a hard copy of it, either. I thought DC’s comic was inferior to Marvel two years running. Shorter, not as satisfying, and more obviously an advertisement for a current event.
