Is Lauren Ambrose one of your redhead faves, J?
Ya, I guess. I really couldn’t stand her character on Six Feet Under until the final season. She kinda grew on me.
i liked her when she was trapped in the bathroom with seth green
How does “Six Feet Under” compare to “True Blood” with you? I thought Alan Ball was great after “Six Feet Under”, but after watching “Towelhead” & a couple episodes of “True Blood” before I bailed, I think he might be a one hit wonder(or two hit if you include American Beauty; I don’t like that movie as much as I once did). He also seems to be as oversexed as Larry Clark.
There is no comparison between Six Feet Under and True Blood for me. I enjoy True Blood for what it but Six Feet Under is my favorite drama show of all time. Though I must admit to having a very unhealthy fascination with SFU. That show resonated with me more than anything I have ever seen. In Treatment is a close second.
I did also like American Beauty quite a lot. The film doesn’t really hold up for me as much either as it did the first time I saw it but I still love it.
I saw American Beauty and Magnolia in the theater on the same week at a rough time in my life. Seeing both of those films so close together during that time meant a lot to me. They helped me get through some bleak shit.
I didn’t initially watch the Six Feet Under clip since I knew it would depress me all over again but I finally gave in. While everyone’s life ended up pretty happy, Keith getting gunned down still bothers me. It’s funny how when this show first started, I hated the David character so much, but by the end of the show, he & Keith were probably my favorite characters.
I always…always related to the Nate character. He was my favorite. But ya, toward the end of the last season I really wanted things to work out between David and Keith. They were perfect for each other and I loved the bit in the last episode where they got married. That was great.
i wrote a short story bout auaman and the flash if anyone is interested. 🙂
I’m interested. You can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you like.
I will definitely give it a read, email@example.com
I assume you mean aquaman, but if auaman is some new crazy character you thought up I’m down with that too.
Hey guys i amde a blog and posted my story on there since your emails are being stupid :p lol heres the link http://generaldark.wordpress.com/ Criticism is MUCH appreciated. basically the story is my attempt to give aquaman new powers and just having fun with a short story. hope you enjoy it.
BTW my spelling is much better in the story so dont let my typos now discourage you 😄
Well General, I read your story and I must say… I found it quite entertainig. Where I’m lost a bit, however is Aquaman seems to be very glib in your story. Were you trying to redefine his character?
On a seperate note; will you be putting forth any of your own characters for original stories?
i was trying to make him into my own vision and attitude. i might try to work on that version more in the future. as for original stories, i do have one im writting. its kind of my attempt to destroy the super hero genre of comics and bring in more variety into the main stream. i have it were the killer is in a rainbow hood and cape in a way to mock heroes and villians and is on a mission to destroy all metas not related to other books. its coming along slowely but im working on more shorter stories atm.
Abuelita: ¿Qué dice? ¿Que está pasando?
In my house we didn’t have subtitles.
Why oh why did they have to cancel this show? What a waste.
LOL! So true, so true.
I lost a lot of respect for this guy after he accepted a role in both live action Chipmunks movies(supposedly Patton Oswald turned it down) and got into a back & forth verbal war with Larry The Cable Guy(what, “Blair’s cousin Geri” wasn’t around?).
It’s a paycheck, dude.
You sound like a naked guy getting arrested at a rest stop.
HA that one is totally based on Atari 2600, I had a lot of fun playing that one… what reminds me that I am getting goddamn old 😦
I respect the fact that you’re able to withhold respect while at the same time making a ‘Facts of Life’ reference.
I’m just happy someone got the reference.
I’ll be honest, I had to google it.
Ya, I got the reference and I was actually going to post a youtube vid of her…but then I realized that I really don’t want yet another reason to burn in hell.
She seems to have a stronger career than any other “Facts” castmember…
Did not see where I could link on to the Daniels vid, so I’ll just say …country rap and rock ….it doesn’t get any better than that.
Did anyone else enjoy this flick as much as I did? I thought it was a far better comedy than The Hangover…
I was let down by it. I’ll take Office Space over Extract any day.
I liked Office Space better too. One of my favorite comedies.
i loved office space too
damn feels good to be gangsta!!!!
I love that O-face scene.
The “printer beat down” scene and this one are 2 of my favorites in Office Space…
Better than “Idiocracy” but falls short of “Office Space”(practically a perfect comedy) and “Beavis & Butthead Do America”.
So I watched the first five minutes of Dr. Who, since everyone on here raves about it. Some milf in high heels blows herself into space and then Dr. Who shows up to bring her inside his little thingamabob. WTF? How is he reaching outside like that? How does she not suffer from decompression sickness? Go watch the Battlestar Galactica episode “A Day In The Life” to find out what a few seconds of vacuum exposure will do to you.
After reading the words “Battlestar Galactica” I just couldn’t take your comment seriously anymore.
Best show ever, son. Don’t hate.
Oh, I am not hating. I am so truly apathetic towards that show it does not bring up any emotions in me at all. I just find it so utterly boring and banal. Hard to hate something when I feel nothing at all for it.
I’ll concede it’s not as good as Wild Wild West.
Your sarcasm is preaching to the converted on that one.
I’m just happy I’m not the only one with a brain who doesn’t find the Battlestar Galactica remake “sci-fi perfection” like so many others do. I saw every TV movie/episode/webisode of it(except for the last few episodes; although I did hear what happened) and I just don’t get it. It was good every once in awhile, but most of the time it vacillated from depressing melodrama full of cliched relationships & staggered character developments to pretentious science fiction that used as many thinly veiled analogies as a modern day Marvel comic.
I enjoy “V” more than BSG. Sure it’s corny, but it’s FUN corny.
I’m only up to episode 7 of the current “V”, but I enjoy it much more than “BSG” as well. In fact, even though it was cancelled when I was still in diapers, based on the reruns I watched years ago on the Sci-Fi Channel, I prefer the original “BSG” over the new one. It may have been cheesy and pretty light hearted considering most of the population had just been wiped out by lizard robots, but it was fun. You can’t say that about its remake.
The new BSG may not have been light hearted, but it was definitely fun to watch. The space battles were the best ever depicted, whether on tv or any movie. The special effects were phenomenal.
I do agree that it was quite depressing at times, mostly in how many characters they killed off (my main criticism of the show), but to say that character development was staggered is simply unfair. Every character went through tremendous growth from the very beginning. No one was quite the same by the time the show ended.
Considering one character was made an “angel” out of nowhere, they didn’t earn a lot of the “no one was quite the same by the time the show ended”. I’m not going to start citing all my specific reasons for ultimately disliking this show since you liked it & that’s fine, but there were a lot of relationships and character “beats” that rang false with me. They were either pulled out of the air with no building to or they came off as lame repeats of other dramas.
What happened to Starbuck was completely bogus. I 100% agree. I despised the last 20 minutes of the final episode. They did such a shit job.
And I agree with you that some of the relationships did seem a little forced. The show definitely had its share of flaws. But what it got right, it did sooooo well.
I enjoy V as well. It started off terribly slowly and I almost gave up on it, but it’s gotten so good in the past few weeks. Can’t wait til next week’s season finale. Looks all hell’s gonna break loose. The armada’s just about made it to Earth and Anna’s soldiers are about to hatch.
It’s no surprise that the mindless marvel monarchs are big fans of BSG. Bendis and Q have mentioned the show many times.
I just saw the trailer for the Jonah Hex film and I smell shit. Real shit. Looks fucking awful.
Unfortunately, I agree 100%. That sucks since I really like the character. I was already expecting the worst what with Megan Fox and those 2 fucking idiots behind “Crank” & “Crank 2” working on it, but it seems to have topped even those low expectations.
The bird coming out of his mouth made no sense at all. I hope that was a dream sequence or something.
They should have done it as a striaght up westren.
8.Chiefly British Slang. a girl or young woman.
That trailer needs more ‘new rock alternative,’ I gotta have more ‘new rock alternative.’
this is a continuation of the manga adaption thread and a HUGE WTF??
this is live acction tv series in japan called princess princess D
In all-boys school with a tradition of Princesses (boys chosen to attend school functions dressed up as girls to alleviate the tension between the students), Yutaka Mikoto, Shihoudani Yuujirou and Kouno Tooru are this year’s chosen Princess team. Dissatisfied with the half-hearted efforts of the current Princesses, Hanazono Otoya creates his own team of Dark Princesses to rival for the students’ attention.
Based on the shoujo manga Princess Princess, by Mikiyo Tsuda.
just had to share that sucker with you folks
So, what’s everybody excited to get today? I can’t wait for Return of Bruce Wayne and will try to discuss it here later. I’m also pretty excited for Birds of Prey. DC is just pumping out quality books while Marvel is canceling theirs. For the first time of my life my pull list has an almost 50/50 split between DC and Marvel. Oh yea, the end of Siege comes out today, Siege has actually been fairly good and my favorite Marvel event in a long time.
im excited about birds of prey
the return of bruce wayne looks like a train wreck in the making to me the worst excesses of grant morrison being used in a story/character that should be kept far away from them
and it makes the whole new batman seem a gimmick seems like dick hadnteven settled into the role when morrison started building up to this so what was the point of a 3 issue mini with tie ins(BFTC) if dick grayson was only going to feel like batman for a few issues?
dont get me wrong i like morrison his wacky over the top stuff like seaguy and all star superman worked great there but i think he needs to get back i touch with JLA days for batman
and has any writer explained why tim drake thought bruce was still alive from the getgo despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary?
On the whole topic of Return of Bruce Wayne, I feel like it will be amazing. Then again I loved Final Crisis and RIP so I’ve probably had too much kool-aid. BTF was editorially mandated and just like countdown had little to no baring on Morrison’s story. And I don’t see Dick being used as a gimmick because Morrison has explored the notion of Damien wanting to continue being Robin with Dick. I think it will be deeper than “Bruce is back!!! I’ll be Nightwing again and Damien can sod off!!!”
I can’t comment on Tim because I haven’t been keeping up with that book. This is just an educated guess, and I’ll comment more after I’ve read the book.
I am SOOO excited for BoP to return. I missed that title so much. Oracle is my favorite DC character, and no one writes her better than Gail Simone. I can’t wait to read it tonight
So I read RoBW and here are my thoughts
-I love that we’re revisiting the cavemen from FC
-I love that cavemen can’t understand Bruce
-I love that Bruce owned Vandal Savage
-I love the look Batman had this issue
-I love seeing Bruce back in action
-I the last page setting up the next issue
Overall, I loved this issue and can’t wait for the rest.
I’m with you, Ullar. I would like to add that I loved Chris Sprouse’s work in this issue as well. He has a way of keeping the storytelling simple, though his rendering can be quite detailed. I loved the panel where Bruce is aiming his Batarang thingee at Savage.
Yea, Sprouse was really good, I was pleasantly surprised because I’ve never read anything he’s done before.
I really like Sprouse, check out his Tom Strong!
See I thought that the cavemen were more than a little annoying and the first couple of pages were pretty useless. Mid way through is where the book started to win me back.
Bruce did look cool in the book. That was the high point of the art for me. I’m going to grab the next one. I just found it a bit slow overall personally.
Tim could have thought Bruce Wayne was still alive since he was in denial after losing a second “father”. He also could have felt Bruce was still alive since he lives in a world where people in tights, both good & evil, come back all the time.
Those are all valid reasons, but in red robin they never do explore why he feels this way, just lets the reader speculate. Was that a good writing choice? I don’t think so. I feel like Chris Yost is really hit or miss.
I’m not sure. I’ve never liked Tim Drake so I don’t read Red Robin. The only good thing, imo, to come out of his being Robin is Stephanie Brown.
thanks for all the replies i have a stacked of red robins i need to get through but of the ones i read yost never even gives the reader a clue to tim’s reasoning which is always bad for a detective story
here is a manga movie i think a lot of us would like i saw the opening scene looks good and reviews compared it favorably to buffy
That looks cool, although the music doesn’t really fit.
casting wonder woman
what about sarah lancaster from CHUCK? i was watching chuck a couple of weeks ago i it popped into my head not because she struck me as wonder woman but she smiled a certain way that reminded me of lynda carter
Can we just go back in time and get Monica Bellucci from 15 years ago?
she would be too perfect
Fuck 15 years ago, Bellucci is still one of the hottest women on the planet.
Even though I liked Lancaster as a blonde better, she might be the best suggestion I’ve yet to read for Wonder Woman(in terms of build, age, and looks).
I’ve watched most of the CCW videos and particularly enjoyed your conversations about the treatment of women in the Marvel-U. That being said, have you guys read the latest Spider-Man which, as far as I know, implies that The Lizard raped someone?
I quit reading ASM a while ago. Why? I can’t stand it anymore. The writing is juvenille and whether Quesada wants to admit it or not, the deal with Mephisto has perpetually damaged the Spider-Man AND Peter Parker characters. This is my opinion, so if you’re still an ASM fan…more power to you. Anyway, just wondered how you guys felt about this issue and ASM in general.
Always looking forward to the vids guys!
Did he rape someone as the Lizard or as Doc Connors?
As far as I know the lizard did it to Connors’ lab assistant.
Would the Lizard even have the right anatomy to do something like that? Maybe he used his tail.
I haven’t heard about that. I’ll have to check out the last couple of issues. Thanks.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3QGAJgjJWI one of the best movies iv seen in forever.
I hate when sex dolls attack.
dude it got me to not want one…
Well, Siege #4 came out. I can’t wait to hear what Jose has to say about it. I know he’s a big fan of Bendis. wink, wink 🙂
I just read it, and thought it was by far the best book out of the 4 seige books, but still nothing to write home about. I have seen Bendis do much worse.
I actually really liked it. Olivier Coipel is awesome.
If they didn’t want the Sentry then they shouldn’t of created him in the first place tragedy for the sake of tragedy. Stupid Superman analog. LOL
It taste like coconut (my favorite line from Iron Man 2)
“coconut…and metal…” I loved that, too. It’s funny, but it’s also vivid. You can imagine the ozone-like smell the thing would probably give off. Does anyone remember record players?
So, I really do try to stay in sync with the pulse of pop culture but what the fuck is this “Woof!” shit that Bendis has been using lately in his terrible fucking comics?
Snoop Dogg and Bendis has the same effect on me =)
“Woof” is Yiddish for shitty writer.
First Wave has completely lost me as a reader. I get what it is but it just isn’t good.
Stone age Batman was okay. But this ain’t going to be some amazing JLA Rock of Ages story. Or will it?
All Siege seemed to do was turn Steve Rogers into Matt Trakker. Loki turning good was about as dumb as that fucking Ultimate Red Skull shit. SHIT
For the love of god, DO NOT read that shitty Sentry funeral comic. Here’s the idea: Superheroes telling fake stories that never really happened about the fake ass Sentry. “Oh yeah, remember when we went bowling with the Sentry?” GOD DAMN
At least Sword 24 came out. If you haven’t been reading it, you missed out.
It’s more fun to rant about shit I hated though.
AF your sentry comments cracked me up thanks
Spider man definitely told a girl to shut the fuck up in the end
Yes, he did. I can’t wait to review this piece of shit.
Sigh…I just hope you can keep in mind that you’re talking about the hard work of fellow human beings who have feelings. Making comics is not easy, and of course it’s cool to not like the end result, but I (for one) don’t want to see CCW devolve into a bitter-fest. Default Hatey Smurf activity is not a good substitute for reasoned analysis. All this hatred gets pretty one-note, guys. (And I’m not just aiming this at you, J, so please don’t take offense!)
When have I ever reviewed something without giving a somewhat reasoned analysis?
“I just hope you can keep in mind that you’re talking about the hard work of fellow human beings who have feelings.”
I can’t tell if you are joking or not. So in other words “If you have something negative to say about somebody’s work don’t say anything at all.”
Don’t put words in my mouth (or my posts). I’m just calling for a little temperance.
I am not putting words in your mouth. I am explaining to you how I interpreted your statement in MY mind.
Really? Saying “creators are people, too” is the same as saying, “don’t criticize anyone ever?” That’s kind of a kneejerk reaction, don’t you think? Let’s not go into semantics. I mean to say that I hope empathy can play a small role in your reviews of things. I can see that you don’t like it when someone criticizes you, so take that feeling and translate it onto others.
I ask you again:
Are you now also implying that I can’t handle criticism or is that me having another kneejerk reaction?
I’m not accusing you of anything, man! And I’m not going to pore through old reviews and try to cite specific instances where I think you’re unreasonable or whatever. That’s very much not my intention. I even added a caveat in parentheses in my original comment to try and pre-empt this kind of debate. I mean you no harm.
Well, I have to be completely honest with you now. You know what really set me off? This:
Do you remember why I initially banned you from these boards back in February? I really hope that you do because then you will know why I am a bit miffed.
Banned me? I think you’re confusing me with someone else…
I most certainly am not.
Yeah, I was ribbing Deemar and Jose thought I was serious. I honestly didn’t know I was banned. I even changed my username and tried to draw a couple things for the site to get back in the good graces of CCW Nation. I felt really bad about it. Deemar wrote something about drawing people, and I very insensitively wrote “who fucking cares?” back. It was supposed to be a joke, albeit a very lame one. I think every artist has felt unappreciated at one point or another. It was a stupid thing to type, but the internet and beer sometimes leads to that with me. Honestly, I still feel bad about it, because Deemar and I are good buds, now. I’m glad we’ve cleared the air, though. And I’m sorry if my comments led to this type of thing.
I’m not sure I would call Bendis a human being. I think the only comment that might be out of line would be insulting him as a man and not his crappy writing. If I said something like; ‘Bendis writes like a greedy jew because he decompresses his comics and never ends story lines so he can keep milking stupid people out of more money.’ I think anything shy of that is more than fair game.
Yeah, I hear you that’s why I left out most of the negative in my thoughts of Iron Man 2 on my blog. It is getting kind of tiresome for me to always talk about the negative so I choose to ignore it. But, I think that is why I keep returning to the CCW blog so I can avoid the negative in comics and on forms of entertainment. I may not always agree with the reviews or opinions of those that are frequent commenter’s, but I do take them into consideration when making a decision. I do not take offence to your comment just to be clear I just like giving my two cents just like everyone else on this blog, you may or may not agree with it but I just like putting it out there, I think people are entitled to their opinion. (Hay, that’s just me though)
Right on. I’m definitely not trying to suppress anyone’s opinion.
Thats cool, now go hug Jose before he Hulk’s out from nerd rage. (Oh, and I’m digging the comic strip you, Deemar, and E are doing)
Thanks, man. I really am just trying to be constructive, not controversial. There’s certainly nothing wrong with negative reviews (I am as guilty as anyone else in that regard!), but I think being positive can be cool, too.
I HATE hate!
WHY! WHY! WHY! THE ONLY VILLAIN IN SIEGE I THOUGHT WAS REMOTELY COOL AND YOU KILLED HIM???????
I AM NEVER BUYING ANOTHER MARVEL COMICS. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER.
Black Widow number two was good tho.,,
So I guess you won’t be buying #3 now, huh? 🙂
I’ll read it. But Never shall another dollar of my hard-earned money go to such bastards.
If I had a nickel for every time someone said that on this blog, I would have at least $3.45.
That’s not even enough to buy a Bendis comic. 😦
I guess I will stick to hacks like Willingham and Buckingham on FABLES, or Mike Carey and Peter Gross on Unwritten. At least then I could afford comics, even if I have to read sub-par stories.
I’ll wait til Shadowland ends then just focus on manga. I’m sick of Marvel’s continutity fuck ups, and even if I wanna support good writers like Hickman and Marjorie Liu, SOME of that money will end up going to Bendis. So after Shadowland, I’ll probably only buy JMS’ WW, and just find good mangas that took a fucking writing class (rather than demanding you teach one since your fucking a marvel superstar)
Hey LKR, I was listening to a podcast the other day called 2 people talking and a name sounding very much like yours came up though sleightly altered…….. Are you familiar with Derek and Angela from 2 ppl talking, by any chance?
Naw, it wasn’t me. Is it a comics podcast? I may have to check it out…
Yeah its a comics podcast plus other random stuff. Actually comicbook noise is a series of podcasts of which 2 ppl taiking is a part of. Let me know what you think.
Oh yeah, Shadowland is definitely still worth it…
Other than Billy Tan’s uninspired, lack luster art. Why couldn’t De La Torre just draw the damn thing?
Fuck, we really are a negative bunch here, aren’t we? 🙂
Nah, you just wanna be Negative so you can put your little 🙂
Exactly! Why is the better artist stuck on the ancillary title. At least De la Torre is doing a 3 issue Amazing arc with Roger Stern .
i am done now with bendis. every year they talk you into a event say its gonna be great, you really want it to be and its fails me. bendis is 0-4 now.
why do jose and elliot review them still? i figured they would have stopped reading his trash way before i did.
no more avengers junk for me. academy looks interesting but i really dont know if its just gonna lead into another horrible over hyped bendis jerk off fest.
spoiler. sentry dies. gets thrown into a sun. what kind of horrible, trying to be poetic justice ending is that.
i wish i could go back intime terminator style and end it before anymore people get hurt.
Not only am I getting stick now for HOW I do my reviews but now I’m getting stick for WHAT I review.
i think you review just fine, but what i am saying is you guys hate it to. do you buy it like someone going to see a b movie , its gonna be a fun train wreck or do you buy it because you think their could be hope in it.
i am guessing you review them because thats what most of the followers on here wanna see, that i get.
I work in a comic shop. I can read books without buying them. That’s part of my job.
i get that! and think thats awesome. what i was just saying was i dont understand how you guys havnt given up on bendis yet. completely that is. i only recently started hating his guts. while you two have been right this whole time for years now, he is trash
There is a small part of me that hopes that the “old” Bendis will come back at some point. I know it’s dumb to think that but I do. I really enjoyed his early works. But now as every year passes by it looks more certain that “old” Bendis is pretty much gone forever.
i liked powers 1 and 2. even if all he did was write a marvel universe cop book but change the hero names.
i kinda refuse to check out the new run of it.
Bendis has gotten so bad, imo, that he’s retconned out of existence the Bendis I used to enjoy reading. Bendis’ good writing is nowhere to be found in my reality.
As long as we’re talking Siege #4, here’s what I don’t get. A lot of Marvel Zombies say DC sucks because their heroes are too powerful. Marvel, even though it contradicts past stories & power levels, has Wolverine able to reform his entire body from a skeleton, Hulk is practically “nigh-invulnerable”, and now Thor, a hero who has been killed off many times before, is able to destroy the “angel of death”/power of God? What’s up with that?
Marvel = Dragonball Z.
Marvel = DraggingBalls “ZZZ”
Hey Jose, speaking of reviews, do you think that you and Eliott are going to possibly do a video review the new Birds of Prey title?
I thought it was great, beautifully drawn and well written. (Gail Simone once again prove how bad ass of a writer she is) I’d be curious to what you two thought about it.
We may. Variant Girl wrote a review for it that I will be posting on here a bit later. I will also probably do a capsule review of it myself tomorrow. I am very glad that that series is back. I was pissed when they canceled it initially.
i miss the weekly doctor who thread
amy ” …i got my boys…”
rory “we are so not your boys”
the doctor ” yes we are ”
rory “yeah we are ^sigh”
cant get more owned then that
not that i feel bad for either of them
I was in my local comic book store today looking at a copy of Fortune and Glory, and I had on one shoulder E telling me it is a good book, and on the other I had J screaming in my ear FUCK BENDIS, what has he done lately to impress you, and deserve your hard earned dollar. I thought to myself WWJD so I put it back on the shelf and bought a Ellis book.
Bret Easton Ellis?
Isn’t it sad that a Bret Easton Ellis comic book still might have sightly less murder and rape than Bendis?
Yes. Yes it is.
Bret Easton Ellis wrote comic books?
Ever hear of a little comic called Archie?
Did he really? The guy who wrote “American Psycho” wrote for Archie?
No. Not really.
Thank God! I wouldn’t want that guy to even be around kids.
What Would Jose Do
Sounds like a t-shirt waiting to be made.
That would be awesome! It would have to have a picture of your face on it from one of your Battle for the Cowl, or New Avengers reviews. Fucking classic.
Did anyone check out Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne yet?
It kind of started out slow, but I dig it.
I agree. The first few pages were really slow. It picked up pretty good around the fight scene. I just expected a little more for Grant Morrison’ level of talent.
I haven’t read the book yet but I did pick it up. I didn’t know Chris Sprouse was doing art, I loved his stuff in Tom Strong, so I am excited to see how the book looks.
Sprouse is only doing the art for the first issue. He is doing a new Tom Strong series that starts next month though.
Cool, are they changing the artist on each issue? I could see that if they are doing different times, different artist could be cool.
I saw the cover for one of the new Tom Strong issues on JHW3 blog. I has it as my desktop picture, but my girlfriend was offended by the swastikas so I had to change it (I thought it was beautiful).
I just opened the book, I love how the 1st page is an ad for Iron Man 2.
I didn’t catch that. ha ha that’s rich
Hi.This is way off topic,but I won’t get to the comics shop or see IM2 until this weekend,but I wanted to contribute something positive.I believe Tina’s is the original but the record went with Michelle Branch for sales reasons.I like Michelle’s version but I LOVE Tina’s.
Mom and Dad stop fighting!
I’m a firing my laser! (I got that stuck in my head, that stupid video)
My favorite part of The Open Thread this issue was the secret origin of LKR; that reveal at the end? Damn! I mean it’s your basic story of redemption, nothing ground breaking, but you really get invested in the characters by the end. And to be honest, they really seem to be on an origin kick lately. Didn’t we get an TheMSpot origin just last issue? Hopefully next issue we can get back to some current storylines and figure out who the real big bad is going to be.
I thought this issue sucked balls compared to last. To much positivity. The buzz on the indicator is that the second half of this issue is going get better.
Just wait for this weeks capsule reviews Tom. You may get more negativity than you can handle.
Oh I can handle a lot, I mean I love that old video you did a while back. This one:
Huh…I don’t remember making this video…but it does sound like stuff I would say. Hmmmm…I must have made it during one of my “blackouts” that occurred back when I had those oh so many 3 day drinking binges. And by “back when” I mean yesterday. And by “yesterday” I mean right now.
It’s nice to see you’ve been paying attention, yeah I hope they’ll be a twist in the reveal of who the bad guy is,maybe it will be the Joker (Batman and Robin referece). LOL
The call is coming from inside the house.
Did I mention that I posted my silly comment “who fucking cares?” comment under the name “BendisFan”? Yeah, I’ve learned to not try and play the heel ever again!
Had I known you were just playing the “heel” I may have given you a huge “push” to garner you with even more “heat” within the CCW Nation. We then eventually could have pulled a “swerve” and turned you “face”. That would have been cool…if this was professional wrestling of course. 🙂
I’d like too officially state I hate wrestling
Frank Frazetta died 2 days ago!!!! How did I not find out about this sooner? What a horrible loss, he was truly a living legend, oh how he will be missed.
That guy was truly awesome. Somehow I missed the announcement at first, too. There’s an excellent documentary about Frazetta called “Painting With Fire” I believe. It’s pretty good.
Yes, I have seen it many times. It used to be on IFC all the time.
I’m more of a Frezzato fan myself.
No painter holds a candle to Frazetta. Best fantasy painter ever. Best “good girl artist” ever The man could capture the female form like no ones business. His figure work was able to convey motion and emotion at the same time. His Death Dealer painting is my favorite work of his.
DaVincci, Michaelangelo,and Rembrandt have to open the gates because one of their pupils have come to join them.
didn’t get a chance to go to the comic shop today. im heading over there tomorrow and was thinking of picking up Daredevil Cage Match. Did anyone read it? if so is it worth it?
Love this show.
Ah, yes! This was good. I totally agree. I hope it comes back for another season.
Ted Danson is awesome.
Well, I can see how it was hard to interpret. But my motives were not truly dickish, just mostly dickish. I actually thought it would be kind of funny at the time to create a villain known as Bendisfan, but it was just stupid. I’ve since stopped drinking and commenting.
I have since stopped doing neither…which explains a lot.
I just watched the movie version of Land Of The Lost on HBO. My gods. It was so awful. There are no words. The Spirit was a work of brilliance compared to this. The writers should be banned from ever doing another project. It might very well have been the unfunniest movie I’ve seen. Every joke was super lame. And yet I watched the whole thing cuz it was still a kick seeing the Sleestaks again.
“It might very well have been the unfunniest movie I’ve seen.”
You have obviously never seen a Corey’s vehicle…or The Sweetest Thing. Just saying.
Granted, I haven’t seen them in years but I liked “Lost Boys” and “License To Drive”.
You have obviously never seen “Busted” aka One of the worst movies ever made ever in the history of ever.
Lost Boys was cool though.
I’m a total movie nut but I’ve never even heard of “Busted”. Other than “Lost Boys” & “License To Drive”, the only other Coreys movies I’ve seen are “Dream A Little Dream”(poor Jason Robards) and “Blown Away”(not the one with Jeff Bridges but the one where the girl from “Charles In Charge” got naked before she got fat).
Even though that’s the wrong version of Charles In Charge(Nicole Eggert was on the syndicated version and that’s the original CBS version), that’s the only one I watched. It’s really depressing that I know that.
Wasn’t The Sweetest thing that movie with Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate back when she still had boobs?
God Damn…to soon!!!
Too soon? She cut them off about two years ago. I thought that was sad that she didn’t seek any holistic treatments for her illness, but she did what she thought was best.
Hee hee. I was listening to the latest WordBalloon last night with Jeff Parker and Gabe Hardman, and Land of the Lost came up. They liked it as much as you did. Apparently, it was rushed into production because of the Writer’s Strike a while back…
Yeah listened too it last night, Hardman nearly gave up the goods on Bret Ratner.
The sets on that movie look great, to bad the movie didn’t look as good.
Why isn’t anyone “replying” to the comment they are talking about. C’mon!
Oops…apparently you are. Ahem…carry on.
Seems I missed quite a bit in my absense
You suuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrre did.
There was a lot of drama, but I’m saving it for my mama.
You always entertain sacky
I for one will be glad when this open thread is a distant memory. I still feel pretty awful about my “BendisFan” comment.
Nice one Jose!
but allow me to lowbrow things a bit here =)

Well, that was a colossal waste of time. But it kept me out of trouble for a good 15 minutes.
Kinda surprised that I’ve watched so many movies with the same line.
I’ve been playing this for the last week or so. Love it.
Nice, I have a good feeling I will lose many hours to that game.
The Super Mario theme song is honestly one of my favorite tunes of all time and I hum it to myself practically every day.
Of course, no one does it justice like this guy.
Then you’ll like this ballsack.
I’ve seen the Asian kid with the double guitars before (all his videos, actually — kid’s a genius), but this car thing: wow. Just, wow. That gave me hope for mankind.
He’s the guitarist for the band Dragonforce.
That’s kinda awesome
Beatboxing with a flute, who’d have thunk.
I had such a crush on her in my younger days. Le sigh…
Regardless of the fact that I watch and like CSI, the name Sara Sidle is still pretty bad ass.
Funny. I never took you for a CSI guy.
Only the original CSI. None of that Miami or New York bullshit.
Thinking the same thing
The first five or so seasons of CSI were pretty solid.
I’ve never seen an episode of CSI. Or Law & Order. Or any other cop show. Not since Hill Street Blues.
Hill Street Blues? Damn you from the way back.
Law & Order SVU
Mariska Haggarty = MILF
You know Mariska is Jane Mansfield daughter or ganddauughter or something, and she was quite the milf back in her day.
She’s her daughter.
She was a milf and she died at my current age. Damn do I feel old.
I watched most of the first season of the original CSI the summer after its first season and found it entertaining. I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fantasy that the show had for real CSI’s(arresting people and get confessions out of criminals?). Even though I came to it late(I started with SVU in the early 00’s), Law & Order is where it’s at in my book. I one day plan to watch every single English speaking show in the L&O universe(if I live that long). That would include…
* Law & Order
* Exiled: A Law & Order Movie
* Law & Order: Special Victim’s Unit
* Law & Order: Criminal Intent
* Crime & Punishment
* Law & Order: Trial By Jury
* Law & Order: UK
* Law & Order: Los Angeles(coming soon)
* Homicide: Life On The Street
* New York Undercover
* In Plain Sight
* The Wire
* The Beat
* Arrested Development
* The X-Files(which would then include The X-Files movie, The X-Files: I Want To Believe, Millenium, and The Lone Gunmen)
* Sesame Street
Not even Cop Rock ballsack?
Cop Rock! what a epic failure,If only GLEE died on the vine just like Cop Rock and Viva Laughlin
TV musicals suck
Except for the Buffy musical. That was EPIC!
Whedon gets a pass
It was a one off
I remember they reran episodes of Cop Rock on some cable channel during the summer years ago and I didn’t mind the show if you took out the singing. I know that’s like saying I liked Baywatch if you took out the lifeguards but what can I tell you?
I saw the first 3 or 4 episodes of Glee and, even though I’m straight & I don’t like musicals, it’s not a bad show.
The only pass Whedon gets from me is when I see one of his comics on the stands. He reminds me of Bendis(although when he was good, he was a lot better than Bendis). He produced quality work for a brief period and then just coasted on his prior works & his obsessively devoted fans all the way to the bank. Except for “Serenity”, I haven’t liked any of his work since Buffy season 4 and Angel seasons 2 through 4. I also hate both of their non-stop attempts to provide “drama” by killing their characters off.
Whedon got me when he started writng Astonishing X men and then he lost me when he brought Collosus back. I have not purchased an issue of Astonishing since.
I must be the only regular poster on this blog who doesn’t mind the resurrection of characters. I can understand it if you don’t like the character(for me, that would be Ra’s al Ghul and Bart Allen), but why is bringing back a good character a bad thing?
I’m not opposed to it much myself that probably why I like “Brightest Day” fairly well.
I guessing that for many people they don’t like it because they are really invested in the story. And when they bring characters back it makes them feel like all that time they spent reading the story up-to, and after a character dies means nothing in the long run.
I guess, but considering superhero comics will still be going, in some form, long after we’re dead(God willing), it’s not like resurrecting a character killed a great story. These “stories” have been going since before most of out parents were born and have new installments come out every week. I also find it a little arrogant to feel that a character that we grew up with shouldn’t be able to return from the dead. That means later generation are going to be stuck with only shitty characters like Sentry, Captain Boomerang Jr, Wolverine Jr, etc.
I meant “I’m Guessing”
To the contrary, Smart….you’re one of many on here that either are in favor or are indifferent to the resurrecting deal.
Stamps pretty much has me down pat on how I feel about that kinda stuff.
Specifically addressing your Collosus question….Its because he was a good character…that’s where my frustration lays. Peter gives up his life for what he hopes will be a greater good and then what happens, Joss has a jones for Collosus, takes a crap on what a previous writer has done and decides to arbitrarily bring him back At that point I no longer cared when a character died in a comic, it became pointless.
BN, I shoulda known better, I knew there was only one way for this story to end up, but I went along for the ride anyway, so that’s my bad.
I’ll end this by saying…a few months ago I switched my preference from Marvel to DC….. at this rate it might be a miracle if by years end that I’m buying anything from the big two.
Apologies for being so long winded on this, I guess the more I was typing, the more I needed to type 🙂
I was a fan of Colossus coming back because I didn’t want him to die in the first place.
I did not want him to die as well, however once it was done I accepted that he was gone. Hell, most of the deaths…I thought were unneccisary, but when the scythe has been swung,, that shoulda been it. When they come back, it cheapens the medium………………….but thats just me.
I think I saw one episode of Cop Rock.
Watching Doctor Who season 3, the whole thing just bought it figured I need to brush up on my Who
I’ve rediscovered my love for Freema Agyeman
She looks very similair to my highschool sweetheart
Ya, she is very easy on the eyes. She is currently on Law and Order UK.
Holy shit I’ll be watching that
Damn Law&Order is a goddamn money making juggernaut of a franchise ain’t it?
Not on American television my man. You have to find it by other means. Nudge, nudge, know what I mean?
Indeed good sir,
You’re wicked, you’re wicked. Say no more. 🙂
I could quote Python all day
I had a buddy back in the day and we’d go 20mins easy just spouting off Python like idiots
There was a bit in the documentary “Comedians of Comedy” where (I believe) Patton Oswalt was talking about when he was a kid. He said that he was friends with all the kids who thought Monty Python was cool and hated the kids who didn’t.
I still feel like that today. Though…Avi really does hate Monty Python. I still don’t know why I am friends with him. 🙂
I hated Monty Python as a kid. Well, not hated, but I just didn’t find it funny. Thankfully I grew out of being a dumb kid.
I was more of a Benny Hill kinda guy. Python always came across to me like aren,t we clever… they were just a bit too snobby for me. Not that anyone brought it up, but not a fan of Mr. Bean either Or SCTV,s canned laugh track.
has anyone seen survivors from bbc with freema in it?
i was thinking of checking it out any thoughts?
survivors is a decent watch, its a bit depressing in places but it does have that bbc feel to it.
“I’ve rediscovered my love for Freema Agyeman
She looks very similair to my highschool sweetheart”
high five for you dee
I wonder if James Cameron made this…
In other news, I actually picked up Invincible Jose and I have to say it was a pretty good read. The art was jarring at times but the writing was very solid.
Was this the first trade Rob?
Actually it was the Invincible Returns issue you guys reviewed a while back. I guess I was kinda thrown from the main story to the back up artistically.
You liked Ryan Ottley’s art in the first story though, right? The second story was done by Cory Walker who was the original artist on Invincible when it started.
Yeah Ottley’s seems a much better fit for the story. The only other thing that was slightly weird was while reading about the Viltrumites I couldn’t help but get a Saiyan vibe off of them. Oh well, that could just be me.
Ottely is the regular artist on Invincible so if you liked his stuff more then you’ll enjoy Invincible now. I’m glad to hear you liked the issue. Are you going to start buying the new issues? Invincible #71 came out a few weeks ago and is the first part to the Viltrumite War.
The Viltrumites do kinda have a Saiyan vibe to them. I can see that. But they also have those really cool mustaches.
Yeah those are definitely sweet upper lip sweaters. And yes, I do think I’ll jump on board for at least the next few issues. The dialogue about wheter or not to kill enemies was really compelling and I’m sure it will be plenty entertaining.
Just saw the top selling graphic novel for April, and JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! REALLY?! GOD DAMN MARK MILLAR! MOTHERFUCKING MARK MILLER!!! I almost pulled a Elvis on my computer when I saw that.
To Elvis- To shoot a inadament object out of anger. example: TV’s or cars
He he…pull a Elvis. I like that.
And, ya, best selling graphic novel of the month. Christ…
I’m assuming that was Kick Ass?
Too bad that didn’t translate to box office tickets. LOL!
Did any one catch the preview from Avengers #1, apparently Steve Rogers wants to turn the Avengers into Team America World Police. Bendis is such a joke.
This was the best way to start off this day. Yes, I did just wake up. It was a long night. Now to see if I can get some shit written for the blog.
lol I LOVE this. “Bed Bath and Beyond, Fuck Yeah”
And is that the fucking Next Avengers bullshit in the MU??
just got seats to ny red bulls vs juventus
and man city and tottenham HOTSPURS are coming over too
and one other team cant remember
Whoever is the 300th commenter has to say THIS IS SPARTA!!! LOL
So, I have a stack of 14 comics that I have to get through so I can do some reviews. Already read Birds of Prey, Siege, Dark Avengers and…that’s it. I have now started and stopped reading New Avengers Finale like 4 times. I can’t get through it it seems…so terrible. I guess I’ll come back to it later yet again after I read something hopefully good. I guess I really should be reading these books and not typing comments on here, huh?
I can see paying for Birds of Prey, but don’t tell me you paid for Siege, Dark Avengers, or New Avengers Finale.
C’mon. Give me some credit. I work at a comic shop dude. I did buy Birds of Prey though along with everything I listed on Monday.
I figured they were on loan from Dreamland.
Anyway, get back to work. 14 books are work and especially when your dealing with that New Avengers Finale. God speed my friend and happy reading (and you may want to get a bucket if your reading the New Avengers Finale just like when I read The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs)Hehe.
Get back to work Jose, you got shit to do. The CCW nation needs it’s reviews.
I flipped through one of the Hulk books yesterday(I don’t know which one since the new trade dress has all the Hulk books with the same bland logo style) and they reveal who the Red Hulk and Red She-Hulk are.
Willie Lumpkin and Millie the Model?
No. In all seriousness, it was Brian Banner(Bruce’s father) and Marlo Chandler-Jones.
I’m lying, but my ideas couldn’t have made the books any worse than what Loeb has already been doing.
What’s the deal with The Heroic Age? I know it isn’t technically a storyline but Marvel is already screwing up the books that fall under it. I believe Invincible Iron Man #25 was the first Marvel book that featured a “Heroic Age” logo on its cover(I’m talking regular covers and not the marked up incentive “Heroic Age” covers that Marvel is giving to every single book they publish), but it isn’t mentioned in their “Heroic Age” Marvel Previews freebie that was given out at stores yesterday. Black Widow #2 and Avengers Thor & Captain America Official Index To The Marvel Universe #1, which are listed in that freebie, don’t show any “Heroic Age” mention on their covers. Not only was Siege #4 late, they’re already fucking up their next hyped “event”.
They did smartass? I didn’t look through those. Who are they? Was I right about Rulk? Was Red She Hulk, Betty?
SPOILERS(for anyone who cares but I hope no one actually does)
Betty & Thunderbolt Ross.
How is it Ross!? Rulk and Ross were allies. They weren’t the same person. Rulk killed Ross in Hulk #600 too. WTF? God Damn Loeb. Makes no sense. Knew he was going to pull this shit.
Again, I just flipped through the book. Since I didn’t read it, maybe I got it wrong. According to the last 2 pages, though, it looked like it was father & daughter Ross.
What the fuck is this Sentry: Fallen Son comic? What a load of horseshit. Are you kidding me?
Does anyone still even buy marvel one-shots? Especially one-shots that revolve around the Sentry? How much was that comic anyway? $4.99 like that bullshit New Avengers finale (I’m just guessing it was bullshit, I for one have learned my lesson when it comes to marvel one shots).
So the Sentry and Rogue had a sexual relationship? Dear lord…
HAHAH!!! what, when he wasn’t off crying in outer space or sulking in his room?
Ya WTF, I am an adamant mutant reader, and I never remember that. I did read this book though, after I finished I tried to do a summary in my head about what happened. and I couldn’t even do that because nothing came to mind.
And then your head exploded. hehe
Well at least Sentry is finally gone so when can forget about him.
Amen to that.
Let’s hope he doesn’t come back.
somebody will bring him back THEY ALL COME BACK
In Flash #2 Barry saves a bunch of people from a rundown apartment building before it collapses. He then rebuilds it from scratch using new materials. So…is it OK for a superhero to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of materials to build apartments? Barry surely doesn’t have that much money, right?
Home Depot is big supporters of the speed force.
I say yes.
Yeah at the same time I kept thinking, so did he just steal all these items? Or did he just happen to find them laying around… Jesus, Johns is a fucking joke man.
Yeah when Bendis took on 4 projects at a time, it turned out great, so why the fuck not you Geoff Johns?
I think the next time I go to my comic store, I’ll just laugh at every person who picks that Flash comic. It’ll be more fun than reading that piece of horseshit.
I think you get more incensed about Geoff Johns than anyone on this blog does about anything else(this is coming from the guy who tries to tie his bashing of JoeyQ into almost every conversation). You’re attacking Johns for writing Barry doing something that Wally, the Flash you prefer, has done himself before. Did Johns spit at you at a convention?
I’m not attacking you for your opinion but I feel you’re going to have a stroke the next time an issue of Flash comes out.
haha i love that seinfeld episode!
i loved geoff johns’ run with wally west, but i just get so confused with retcons… they just make me feel like in the long run its not worth buying the comics at all.
but yeah, flash #2 was a bit better than #1. I actually liked a lot of it, but I still feel like Wally could of fit just as perfectly in this story..
The villain aspect of the story was the parts I liked, but I just get really stubborn over revised origins. I spent so many years reading so many Barry/Wally issues, and when I see the timelines change so drasticially, its like “what? in one issue its all different when I just spent my summer reading 60 or 70 issues trying to memorize his history? damnnnnnnn” lol
Personally, I’m not thrilled with either of the “big 2’s” ways of dealing with things. DC reboots/retcons a lot of things about their universe about once a decade while Marvel will casually ignore things and hope no one notices or cares. Either way, you’re going to piss off as many, if not more, people than those you please.
In John’s defense, I think the DC universe as a whole sems to be more accepting of their superheroes’ behavior. Or, it also could come back to bite Barry in the butt as this is some sort of small sign that you can’t right every wrong perfectly. Or maybe they weren’t really new but he used the Speedforce to accelerate chemical reactions or something. On that note, I think it’d be a good point to point out that the Speed Force is insanely overpowered.
or MAYBE (and work with me, this is just a theory, i know it has its flaws, its probably too early to tell) but maybe
BARRY ALLEN IS SUPPOSE TO BE DEAD.
And I say this in defense of all the people who’ve bought Flash comics the pass few years and feel like their entire world has been such a contradiction, that its officially a self-parody… Maybe. Like I said, could be too early to tell.
[If I should stubborn: its because I hate the fact that my favorite character is a joke now.]
I agree with you Rob F. I think the Speed Force is becoming too powerful. I feel like when a Hero gets too powerful, it makes it less appealing to read, every now and then I like the “under-dog” story, the guy who is outmatched but uses his brain to solve the conflict not muscle.
yea i called bullshit on that when i read what barry did there but i thought to myself because this is a comic and we dont get much moments like this i thought i would enjoy it. i really like this flash series. but dammit…i want wallY!!!
Is anyone gonna see Robin Hood? I might if I go on a date this weekend.
I plan on it.
Kevin Costner as Robin Hood in Prince of Theives was badass though. This looks much more grim and Hollywood’s version of realistic. Still should be fun.
i just have a hard time seeing ballsack on a date lol 😄 but yea im not sure if i see it or not. i probally will since i like russel crow
i finally read sheild #1 i really enjoyed it it reminded me of those early issues of planetary where i wasn’t quite sure where it was going but the ride was so fun i didnt care
I’m not the only one on this blog that reads the Bleeding Cool blog, but has anyone seen that stupid acomicshop show or whatever the hell it’s called on the Bleeding Cool blog. Is it me or am I the only one who thinks that those guys come off as a little simple, and I can not believe that some one like Johnston would take these guys seriously.
I gave up after watching 2 of them. I can’t tell if they’re “simple” or if it’s an act, but I only have so much time on this planet left. I just don’t care.
Ya, I got the ripping of the covers bit, but after that he should have quit. I just figued he was friends with someone at Bleedingcool
Never seen it, I’ll be sure too check it out
I hope Sentry Fallen Sun will be up for a Golden Loeb this year. I spent $3.99 on bullshit stories that did not happen and im suppose to feel sorry for the Sentry. It was not to long ago we had the same shit for Hercules Funeral now for worst character in Marvel comics. If you want to know why i bought was because the previews said Fallen(Not Final Title, i was like okay aftermath of siege about Norman Osborn in custody so i added it to my pull list. I picked it up and went home with Siege#4, Embedded #4, Dark Avengers and New Avengers finale and i see Fallen Sun and im like what is this shit. I was hoping for Marvel to kill Sentry for along time and after him dying 3 times and coming back im pretty damn sure we haven’t seen the last of the Sentry.
I second that vote.
It is deserving of a Golden Loeb
Did anyone find out what Bullseye did to Mrs. Sentry? I know he’s been around for awhile and is just a fictional character, but he’s been killing too long without being brought to justice. I hope I live to see both Bullseye and The Joker killed off(although since The Joker is one of the most well known superhero villains of all time, I don’t see that happening).
i wouldnt say i want the joker dead, but i want him to not be used so fucking much!
don’t worry, if joker dies geoff johns will bring him back… all’s well guys.
I could be wrong since I haven’t been keeping a running tally, but I think Johns has still killed more characters than he’s brought back.
Mike F. your heart is full of rage, welcome to the red lantern corps!
It’s just comics Smarty, they’ll kill them and bring them back within five years.
I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it
I hope we see some reviews from you in the next couple of days Jose. I don’t care if it’s an all Geoff Johns bashing starting with how he can’t even spell his first name right, I need to hear some insightful negativity. LOL!
I’ll put some up tomorrow from Variant Girl, Iron Muskrat and myself. I am sure there will be some negativity thrown in for good measure. Not to worry.
You been slacking on them reviews J
I am working more hours now so less time to do stuff for the blog. But ya…I have been slacking. 😦
Do you have multiple jobs or is Dreamland to blame for depriving us of more blog posts?
I only have the one job.
I hear ya man, my schedule has been hectic also.
The blog is growing, we gotta figure out a way to make it run smoother.
I’m sure I’ll figure something out.
We should do a chat this weekend with E
I’ll let him know.
Tell me what you think.
You made a good point about Johns
Oh, and great job on Red Fury
Pretty much agree with everything you said MSpot. Glad I am not the only one who is getting tired of his stuff. And good point on the Batman Earth One GN. If he fucks that up too at least it is not the “real” Bats.
…the creeping tide is upon you Geoff Johns
According to J 2010 is the fall of Geoff Johns. 🙂
Yeah, it may not be the real Bats but if he can’t pull that off then I’m going to have to turn my back on him for good. (like so many before him) hehe
ohh damn what happened to him is geoff johns is he pulling a bendis or millar
What happen to Johns and others popular writers, is they got comfortable with their jobs and lazy with their writing. So, they think they can get by on notoriety they built with previous good works to sell their shitty one’s. That is why I tend to avoid this lazy writing in hopes that they will return to the form that made them good in first place. Honestly, I don’t see that happening any time soon so in the mean time I’m good to focus on the writers who are good right now.
Yeah your pretty much Murder Face
Hey alright, bottom of the hour, it’s almost the weekend ladies and germs! Alright!
Coming at you with a little ‘Loverboy,’ these guys know a thing or two about the weekend. Alright!
not a bad move DC, not a bad move at all
Lost Planet 2 looks kinda fun… anyone else up for it?
It’s gotten some pretty terrible reviews.
Damn… I guess I’ll just go play some old school games like Castlevania originals, none of these new age remakes.
It’s a sad day kiddies. “Law and Order’ got canceled.
What the Fuck am I supposed to watch when I do mundane tasks in my living room, or at 2 in the morning when there is nothing else on. DAMMIT. Why couldn’t Criminal Intent get the ax.
Well, I’m sure TNT will still play the 21 season’s worth of reruns 10 out of the 24 hours everyday. So…there’s that.
Yeah that’s true. It’s just so unfortunate…
It’s ridiculous that they ended it one season away from beating Rawhide’s record. There was even a quote recently from NBC’s prime-time entertainment chief Angela Bromstad that said “I’m a Law & Order junkie. I wouldn’t want to be responsible for not having Law & Order break the record.” L&O gets canceled but Chuck gets renewed? I also love how they’re picking up L&O:Los Angeles. I like to pretend California doesn’t even exist but now it’s going to tarnish probably the best cop franchises ever.
Yeah, kinda an end of an era
Although not really since we still have two L&O spin-offs and another on the way
Don’t fuck with UNICRON’S Wine!
Either Jose is working hard tonight or playing hard. Where’s the Weekend Open Thread? LOL!
Maybe he’s getting a little action.
I fucking wish.
