This sounds like the soundtrack to a Chinese wedding, heck it would be sweet if they played this music at MY wedding reception (barring if I EVER get married that is, lol ) 😛
HA! At first I thought they were gonna make Sailor Moon gangsta and rap the song, but then they begin making idiots of themselves when the music starts playing 🙂
What’s bizarre is that it’s not their only video. They have others. And they all make no sense.
Well, youtube is the right site for uploading videos were you make asses of yourselves 😀
White people have Air Guitar we have Air Interpretive Dance!
Everything with you has to be so jokey.
Why so serious?
Is that a Cliche?, lol
Best wedding ever.
Coolest picture I’ve seen all day. Although if this was my wedding I wouldn’t want Kick-Ass at it 🙂
If I get married this is exactly what my wedding to look like. Except there’s no way in hell I would be Wonder Woman
Please get it on Youtube. I guarantee it’ll get over a million hits.
So who would you be, Stamps?
hmmm good question. Probably Catwoman or Batgirl. Not new tactical-leg-pouch wearing Batgirl but a proper Casandra or Babara version.
I would say Jade, but if college has taught me anything thus far it’s that full body paint is not fun to chip off your body at the end of the day. And no one wants to deal with the jokes about being “green” on their wedding day.
Oracle wouldn’t be that bad either I guess 😛 I could sit through the ceremony and have a laptop with me. lol
I would be Wonder Woman at my wedding. Just saying…
I think that look would work for you.
With the new JudgeDredd Jacket or without? 😛
Ummm, duhhhh…WITH! It is so bitchin’. I think I’ll also get a unicorn saying “Cowabunga” airbrushed on the back to give it an extra awesome kick. It will be so radical dude!
I’m loving the mental image of that.
Now that’s a wedding I’d have to crash. You’ve gotta give me at least 6mos. though so I could fit into my Black Panther costume.
Anything sooner and I’d have to come as the Flash’s friend.
although not quite as exaggerated 🙂
I watched Valhalla Rising over the weekend. I recommend this movie, the cinematography is awesome. Some might find the pacing to be slow but it keeps tension throughout the film.
Yeah, I like the single camera technique as well. The director really knew how to stretch a hour and a half. How about that dialogue? He he or lack there of, but what was said keep the story going. I would recommend it even though I think I’ve seen better from this director. I was going to do a review of the movie on my blog, but instead decided to ask a comic book question and forgot that only three people read my blog. Oh well, this was a interesting movie.
We are on the same page about the film TMS. Have you seen The Double Life Of Veronique? That is next on my list as soon as I find the time.
No, I haven’t, but when you find time tell me what you think. It sounds interesting, and if I ever get around to seeing it I think it will be the first Polish film I’ve seen.
Fucked up comics write themselves, how about one where congressmen want people who do the right thing to get the death penalty?
no treason, we are all humans, one people.
Somebody say “fucked up comic”?
I’ll second that. I don’t agree Obama, but I would never do something like this.
I agree with everything you just said
If only people could just grow up…
Yeah that rubbed me the wrong way.
Me too my friend. Me too.
Up late drawing.
How about you?
Up late drinking. You should know that by now. 🙂
Forgot what a boozer you are.
Great couple o vids today by the way, can’t wait for the Scott Pilgrim movie.
Arizona’s not that far away, J.
We could always meet in the middle and kick some ignorant ass.
Fuck ya! Road trip!
Since I can’t remember which thread irs on, I’ll ask again. What exactly is black pudding, Jose?
Heres your black pubbing
I like my pudding better.
me too Deemar,me too.
Hell I’ll take’em from the south, enough idiots I deal with everyday anyways.
That is pretty fucked up.
Def not trying to start a war on here, but I’m after watching Kick-Ass again I’m definately going to pick up Kick Ass 2 next week. Although I disliked the comic book I feel that Miller may of learned from the movie and stepped up his game for volume 2.
Miller and Learning?
As long as he can write a better ending this time around I think it’ll be solid. The ending of Kick Ass in the comics was terrible. Other than that I thought it was pretty decent. Def not sure if he learned anything, but I’m certainly curious to see where he takes these characters
Mbell, I am completely serious when I say this: You could write a better “reality based” superhero story than Mark Millar. The new Kick Ass series is called “Balls to the Wall” for fucks sake. Do you really think it will be better? I’m not having a go at you but I think if anything it will be even MORE juvenile. Just my opinion though. I’ll be interested to hear what you think after we both have read it.
Michael Bay of comics is so dead-on.
Am I the only one dreading Matthew Vaughn’s X-men?
Only nervous in that Marvel is rushing it out like they’re doing with the Spider-Man relaunch. I think the rush will lower the quality tremendously
I do agree with you Jose that Miller is a pretty Juvenile writer, which is why I didnt like the first volume of Kick Ass. The first few issues of the book were very solid, but the ending was awful particularly when Kick-Ass revealed to Katie that he was not gay. Her reaction to that, which was her yelling and screaming at him and then proceeding to text him a picture of her giving a guy a blowjob was completely unrealistic, ruined the development of that character thereby ruining the book for me. All I’m saying is that I think he should of taken some notes from the movie, which I believe handled the premise Miller came up with completely better than Miller’s finished product.
If Miller follows the movie and not his comic (Which i know he won’t) I think that part two will be better than volume one. I will definately be more than happy to discuss the book with you when we’re both finished reading and I do agree with you that I will probobly fall in with you in that it’ll be bad just like the first volume. I guess I’m just trying to be a little optimistic.
On a side not I think I probobly could write a better reality based superhero book than Miller. I can’t draw worth shit though someone on here will have to that for me lol.
It’s all shock value, Millar has yet to find his way outta those old habits.
That and he so looks down upon the readership, that “blowjobs and texting” is the only means he has of telling a story.
I def agree with you on that. It’s a shame that Miller is put on such a pedestal when it comes to his books. He’s given such a great opportunity to appeal to a mass audience and he decides to write shitty books that are way over the top.
Aparently, the new series focuses on Hit Girl, and the bad guys recruit another 11 year old girl to kill her. So, you have two tweens going at it with swords, I guess.
haha nice Jose. I may think of this before I pick it up you never know it may sway me from picking it up
Any Starcraft 2-ers on here? Lemme know. RugbySkin and I like Thors, Void Rays, Stalkers and Roaches.
I have had this song stuck in in mind for most of the day and I have no idea way. I do own this album but I haven’t heard it in ages.
She got two talents and it ain’t her voice
Ya, her eyes are pretty nice now that you mention it.
I finally got the records I ordered…fuckin record player doesn’t work, what a pisser. This is like that Twilight Zone episode where the guy is left alone to read all the books he wants and his glasses break.
Heh, great analogy…but that does really suck.
The opposite of that is having a working record player and the only record left is John Tesh Greatest Hits.
that would be a gun in the mouth time.
Hey who doesn’t love “Fish don’t stink”?
yeah I know wha…..waitaminute, when did Tesh have even one “hit”?
And don’t forget both of these guys pale before the artistic might that is Kwnny G 🙂
Kenny G the paint tinner of Jazz
the name Kenny G and the word zazz shoulr nefer be used in the same sentence.
That sucks Rush. What records didja order?
I picked up Simon & Garfunkel Bookends the other day at a Goodwill for like 3 bucks. Completes my Simon & Garfunkel collection 😀
Daft Punk – Harder Better Faster Stronger(Deadmau5 edit) never released, promo only
Sia – Drink To Get Drunk(Chris Lake remixes)
Digby & Oliver – Human
Brother Brown – Slap Me Some Skin
$3 ain’t bad, fuckin house music on vinyl gets expensive. It’s anywhere from $10-$12 for a record with two songs on it.
Yeah, that was Burgess Meridith…t.v’s Penguin to Adam West’s Batman and later on Rocky’s coach on….well Rocky in that Twilight Zone
Nice a happy song. Ya know I don’t own a lot of happy music.
Trust me, neither do I.
not bad at all.
Ha! now thats a weird ass video!
I’ve seen the ping-pong ball trick overseas, although the ball was coming from the mouth.
Bizarre video. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder, they blow up at the end.
The first half ain’t bad.
Sorry dude, even a year in Korea, visits to Japan and China couldn’t get me too listen to K-Pop.
K, J couldn’t tell the difference.
They got J or K Blues?
I just finished reading volume one of Brubaker’s and Matt Fractions run on Immortal Iron Fist damn that book was cool I don’t know how the run ended, but I’m kinda suprised it’s not still running. I liked it because I always thought that Iron Fist and Daredevil were similar to eachother it was nice to read this book and to see how different Murdock is to Danny. I feel kinda stupid thinking they were similar.
Yeah they really turned that character around.
I won’t spoil the ending of their run, but I’ll say it ended way too soon.
def excited to read the rest of the book. I got the trades pretty cheap online gotta read those and volume one of Y:The Last Man.
They need too make that Y-The last man movie/tv series.
What series would you like to see Fraction on? I’d like him to take a crack at the Hulk. It obviously can’t be a cast of thousands but I think it’d be decent. Also maybe Doc Sampson. Always liked him (for some damn reason)
Fraction would be good on most of Marvel top titles, although for my money I’d like to see him take on C-D list characters.
He did wonders for Ironfist, let’s see what he could do for the Shroud or Falcon.
Def second the falcon I liked him a lot when I was reading captain America. I’d like to see a falcon centered book or one for Luke cage although he is in New Avengers and Thunderbolts
id like to see him on cap and title return to being titled cap and the falcon for a couple of years brubaker almost makes the falcon look good then bitch slaps him around like he is red shirted brother on star trek its quite frustrating
but id take a falcon solo title from fraction any day
I’d rather have a Falcon back-up than a Nomad one, and if it was written by Fraction I would start picking up Cap again.
ok im for that too
Black Panther. I feel like he could do a lot with that character.
now fraction on the panther would be interesting especially after iron man
in chritopher priest black panther t’challa had a nice verbal run in with tony stark and tore him to shreds it was basically the verbal equivalent to what thor did to him all the more powerful because it was true
yeah id but a fraction black panther book on pull list in a second
Maybe he could do Daredevil whenever Andy Diggle decides to leave that book?
haha awesome video deemar pretty much sum things up at the bar scene.
Nothing wrong with a little baby talk.
that was disturbingly sexy wow i havent seen janeane garoflo in looooong time
are those tats real??
Ok this looks good!
i liked the original im looking forward to this
That looks fucking scary. I kinda jumped at the end there.
This is like the BP oil rig worker orientation video.
Nice Rush, I dug that quite a bit.
This is K-Pop D.
Ok this kinda groovy chick in the hat is hot.
Here’s one in English for ya. Don’t say I never did anything nice for you. 🙂
Ok not bad, generic lyrics, but a nice beat.
How could I not notice this stuff in country?
Ya , I agree with you about the generic lyrics but I still dig BoA. She put out her first American album last year.
I own it! I like it!
I’ve liked BoA for a few years now. I remember sometime last year walking through a Best Buy, seeing her album and being completely shocked. It was cool though to see her music in an American store.
Just for you D.
Now we talking Rushy!
More any other mash-ups like this?
…and this for good measure.
I can digg. I can digg.
I love mashups
I like the electro sound.
Actually the majority of BoA’s recordings were released in Japan, and many of her co-workers/label execs were Japanese so you could easily consider her J-pop since she has music directly aimed at Japan.
Somewhere around 30 comments ago the blog passed 30,000 total comments.
Pat on the back fellas!
I’ll take 20% of the credit
hahaha only 20? now that’s a milestone well done guys.
WELL DONE EVERYONE ON HERE PAT EACH OTHER ON THE BACK. PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK LADS WELL DONE!!!!!
is it wrong everytime i see your gravatar stamps i think of this
hahaha oh God that’s funny. No it’s not wrong. lol
I’m with U Stamps, that was retty hilarious.
You’ve got good peepers AA124. Until you said that about Stamps avatar, I thought that was a lady with a flower in her hair. Man, I had to put on mt reading glasses and kick the screen up to 400% to make out that was Sean Connery! 🙂
It’s the Hunt For Red October poster. One of my all time favorite movies. Just don’t let Connery find out you had him mistaken for a lady with a flower.
It’s like Connery day at CCW. This is something like the third vid concerning Connery. I wish everyday could be Connery day.
You know, all you got to do is ask. I could make a Connery ONLY post for you. 🙂
You’ll dig the Julien Jabre track Jose.
Alright I’m out, Holla!
Oh yeah, Jose finish the damn script so I can letter it.
Have you seen this? I saw this on the NNTP servers but I don’t know if it’s worth the bandwidth.
I liked it. Liam Nieson did a really good job and the atmosphere was freaky. I’d say it’s worth a watch.
Then I’m a drop a Dr Who and the Daleks Techno Remix
loving the tecno beats if you had the doctor talking on that it would be so much better
That would be much better indeed. Does anyone know the original sample/scene from Doctor Who? Lol..we could also do a quiz where someone posts a technotrack and we have to guess from which movie they took the samples.
sample 1 0.00-0.30
sample 2 1.28-1.56
Shadowland #2: HUGE Improvement over #1.
DOOMWAR #6: A great event that I wouldn’t of even heard of without CCW suggesting it, thanks again guys!
im waiting for the bargain bin but seems like doomwar started a loooong time ago
the xmen in early issues scared me away
i enjoyed marvel U VS. punisher, BD #7 was interesting.
my picks of the week are: 3. Doomwar..it had to end..2. Punisher vs. MU and number 1. Frankencastle 19..could be from last week..but I found it just today in my bin..anyway..frankencastle 19..is a 4 issue battle only between daken wolverine and frankencastle and its..awesome..
when will he turn into normal punisher again beacause he’s supposed to be ok in shawdowland isn’ he i don’t know i buy to much i think i might drop shadowland
That really anoys me, with Marvel ignoring their own contniuity and having characters getting involved in other hero’s affairs, while they themsleves have their own problems to deal with.
i like when some heroes like moon knight are asked to join a team and they say “i’ve got my own problems to deal with give the characters depth unlike in avengers where one character just came back from the dead. one can’t remember the last few years of his life, one just saw his homeland destroyed by a government he now works god damn it contniuity is dead!
frankencastle turning into the regular version? I quote: -SPOILER- Henry, Castle’s sidekick says in this issue: With that bloodstone in your chest, this crap’ll eventually end. You’ll heal. It’s just a matter of time. He will probably return to normal after next issue.
thanks well it’s about time
Interesting, Frank has the blood stone. I guess he has a “superpower” now.
on a britter note check this out this is a big deal for the ccw nation
something to cheer us up then? I think the new thunderbolts team is a really cool team and with Parker on the book, there’s no reason to complain. but this book is not on my want list.
who would have ever thought that mousy little slayer would turn into a bollywood saucepot one day
that was fun thanks
AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH Bollywood, bane of my existence.
Love this girl even more
This question has been on my mind for a while: In what order would you put all of the Star Wars movies from favorite (top) to least favorite(bottom). I’ve been in a Star Wars mood lately. My order:
1. Return of the Jedi
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Revenge of the Sith
4. A New Hope
5. The Phantom Menace
6. Attack of the Clones
I’m not going to count the animated Clone Wars movie because it was just 3 episodes of the show crammed into one movie that you had to pay for. Plus, it was just Lucasfilm trying to nickel and dime people. I love how my favorite 2 Star Wars movies weren’t directed by George Lucas 🙂
My list goes:
1. A New Hope
2. Return of the Jedi
3. Empire Strikes Back
4. Revenge of the Sith
5. Attack of the clones
6. The Phantom Menace
1. Empire Strikes Back
2. New Hope
3. Return of the Jedi
4. Empire Strikes Back
5. New Hope
6. Return of the Jedi
so you’re a prequel hater eh? 😉
Revenge Of The Sith over A New Hope? Seriously??
Don’t play. This is important.
Not playing. Why so serious?
Galactica 1980 was better than A New Hope. You know this to be true.
Yeah I like Revenge of the Sith a little bit more than New Hope. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the Star Wars movies, but Revenge was more of an emotional movie for me. Plus, I have a soft spot for the prequels because that was my trilogy of Star Wars as a kid. In fact I saw Phantom Menace 3 times when I was six years old 🙂
1.empire strikes back
2.return of the jedi
3.a new hope
4.revenge of the sith
5.the phantom menace
6.attack of the clones
Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan 😉
I second that.
I like your style Heck 🙂
1. empire strikes back.
2. a new hope
3. revenge of the sith
4. return of the jedi
5. attack of the clones
6. the phantom menace
Marvel U vs. The Punisher was a good start (even if it is a zombie book). I’m interested to see where he goes with this, and see if he can throw in any twists that will keep it from being a Marvel version of one of his Joe Ledger books. I don’t think that is a bad thing given that if he did a graphic novel version of those books they probably wouldn’t sells as well(fuck, now I’m thinking like a Marvel publisher or even worse a Marvel Zombie), and Marvel doesn’t even have the balls to publish a graphic novel version of one of Maberry’s books because they are better written than, lets say, any of those Stephen King adaptations.
yeah, i really enjoyed Marvel U Vs. Punisher. Very nice art, good set up with the rivalry between Punisher and “zero” and that bit at the beginning was rather amusing 🙂
Also, it’s nice to see The Punisher as a human again.
Agreed. Excellent first issue. I did like the little twist toward the end of who was responsible for the outbreak.
Also, the last issue of Doomwar was awesome. Cool ending to the best mini of the year…so far. I’ll probably nominate it for a CCW Award. 🙂
The ending to DoomWar was everything I expected and wanted. Literally, great writing. An event with class, action and a message.
I haven’t read it yet. I’m picking up my books tomorrow and I can wait to see how the last issue wraps things up. Doomwar is one of the few books that I will later buy as a trade…Damn I’m going to miss getting this book every month.
My favorite part of Marvel Universe vs the Punisher was how quick they killed off Deadpool in this event. It seems that Daredevil has to appear in every marvel event and I’m glad he was used in this and immediately killed haha.
I agree with you it is nice seeing The Punisher as human, and not that FrankenCastle bullshit. Also, the montage at the beginning was well done I liked the Colbert reference.
Alright a friend just sent me this vid and I need to know if this is real or not.
It’s real. Ive seen that episode.
i remember the boondocks episode that this guy was based on
Do you guys get the show Pure Pwnage in the States? I know it started as a web series (kinda like the Canadian version of “The Guild” except no Felicia Day 😦 ) but lately they’ve been airing episodes on Showcase (kinda like the Canadian version of HBO except not as good 🙂 ).
Anyway, if you fancy yourself a video game enthusiast, i would recommend it. It’s pretty funny.
And it definitely reminds me of some people i know…
Showcase can’t be all that bad, isn’t Trailer Park Boys from that channel.
Hey folks, I had a bit of news that I wanted share…
After reminding John Layman that Serrano is a pepper (remember, he said that all the characters in CHEW have food names) he announced this on Twitter:
“@themightylayman @GeekToMe Yep, you just earned yourself a guest appearance in CHEW #17… the prison romance issue, naturally! ”
Oh boy…I wonder what he has in store for my character? This should be fun.
Don’t drop the soap. he he
Better you than me. I have never been so happy NOT to be named atfer a food in all of my life.
Hey that’s racist
The Spicy Latino!
Oh and like Spotty said it’ll probaly involve soap.
probably a pepper fetish, but more than likely sodomy.
Oh you better believe in prison
Soap = Sodomy
I think I’m gonna draw that right now!
that’s brilliant e but you know it’ll be the soap. it’s the way of the prison
Jose, would you know which titles are in top 10 over at DC?
Here is June’s rankings.
Any guesses to what this is?
Maybe something along the lines of Marvel’s Strange Tales or Bizarro Comics? I have no idea. Some of that art is kinda old. Could be anything at this point. Chances are good if it’s a new monthly it will be at least $3.99 though. 🙂
I hoping that they are bringing back Solo.
Also, remember Solo. What the fuck ever happened to that series?
Not even a Eisner win could keep that around.
I’m hoping this will be the variant cover for one of the OMIT books.
That’s me after reading the new issue. Christ.
Dude, IM, these books are fucking terrible. It is no laughing matter. I almost had an aneurysm during Last Rants reviewing the first issue.
Don’t worry J, I almost had an aneurysm myself when I reviewed the first issue myself on my blog. We Spider-man fans shouldn’t have to deal with this shit Quesada is feeding us. Seriously that man has made it his life’s mission to ruin the character of Spidey and the past few years he’s done a damn good job of it so far.
Also… can’t wait for Last Rants 😀
it just funny picturing jose in a spiderman costume while he reads comics 😄
That’s why Invincible is where I get my teen superhero fix from now. I don’t think Dan Slott can fix what Quesada has broken, and that’s pretty much why I given up on the book.
Yeah at first I thought Slott would for sure fix Spidey, but after reading what I have of Grim Hunt, Gauntlet, and OMIT my faith in Dan Slott has taken a beating. I’ll still buy the first few issues of his run, but he may need a miracle to fix what has been broken.
I’m gonna give his ASM a try, it has three of my favorite artists and my favorite writer.
What’s the worst that could happen?
IMO the worst possible case scenario is if Quesada does what he did with some of JMS’ ASM stories by pissing in them. Hopefully Quesada will stay away from ASM forever after OMIT.
all that aside I’m looking forwars to Slott’s run on ASM and the artists lined up for his run are some of my favs. Here’s to a great and hopefully long run for Dan Slott!
Damn you got a point, if Quesada would stick his grubby hands into JMS’s stories (A Name Guy!) he’s definately gonna fuck with Slott’s stuff.
No doubt about it, and that is the worst that can happen. Nothing has stopped him in the past so what will stop him from continuing. As long as it’s selling Quesada will continue, and that is why as long a Quesada is there Spidey is dead to me. It pains me to say that.
I need a drink.
I’m already way ahead of you MSpot.
I believe you Jose, sometimes I feel bad benefiting from your pain, but it’s through your sacrifice that I avoid total crap comics..
and for that I thank you =)
He’s the Human Target!
Dear lord, I am 75 hours into Final Fantasy XIII and I THINK I am finally at the ending. Fingers crossed.
75 hours? at least you got your money’s worth out of it.
No shit, Chet. Noooo shit. 🙂
I’m re-reading my collection of MAD Magazines 🙂 It’s nice to re-visit all the laughs I had!
Celebrating SC2 Style after a glorious day for my people.
And by people I mean the folks that wanna abduct Ben Cohen and Force-Gay Marry him in CA and live off his rugby/magazine cover riches.
And in a 2nd good thing, I unlocked the Firebat portrait for my guy! Oh yeah.
Sounds like a great day to be Micah. 🙂
In all honesty though, I was very happy to hear the news about Prop 8 in Cali today. It made living in this fucking terrible world a little bit better…if only for a moment.
Once all the old people die off none of this non-sense will be an issue.
Love who you wanna love.
Well, wasn’t too great. Went 1-2 tonight on SC2. Damn useless partners in 4v4…
Like MSpot I’m hoping this will be an OMIT varian cover as well:
More fuel for the Deemar Sunday Funnies fire.
HA!!! That’s awesome.
anyone here finish reading Marvel Universe vs. the Punisher that shit was awesome as hell. I hope Eliiot and Jose review that book. I’d be very curious what you guys thought of it. I’ll def have to pick up Doomwar once it goes to trades.
I commented about it earlier on here. We will probably review it next week too.
Yes, we did talk about that earlier in the thread some where around comment 178.
Also, my favorite line from the book was I’m a shooter not a scientist.
it was nice to read a book that actually explained why the protagonist was immuned to the sickness instead of just telling the reader to accept whats going on
Agreed, but I think that is as far as I will go into talking about the book without spoiling.
Haven’t read it yet Spoiler?
Did anyone read the finale of Doom War?
i think im going to re read marvel vs punisher before i go to bed 🙂 wow i think maberry must think we are major ass kissers or something lol. goodnight.
Yeah Doomwar was a pleasent surprise so Maberry gots my money for this one.
How far will CBR crawl up Joey Q’s ass? Let’s see.
Yup, they are in there pretty deep, aren’t they?
Deep sea diving.
Jose check your inbox in 2mins.
That’s terrible D. So, so terrible. 🙂
Yes..yes it is Show it to the CCW Nation why don’t you.
But thats the opposite of Doomwar’s ending. Even if the villain deserves punishment…we are not savages 🙂
You clearly have not read Cry for JUSTICE!!!
It made me cry for Justice.
i don’t get that so now all the characters in that are normal again and don’t kill?
sorry i hit submit then went back and submitted again
Okay, finally got that ANGRY BLUNT OBJECT of a new post written.
Here’s the title: It’s MILLAR Slime!
Bet you’ll never guess what it’s about! 😉
DAMN IT INSIDEMAN! I just went so long without thinking about Millarrrrrr ughhhhhhh
still a good article tho man.
Mike, the books in the HUGE “To Read” stack often GUTS me too.
But I have to read them– as the stack demands it.
Apologies for taking you down as well. 😉
I don’t know if anybody saw this and posted it yet but now you can own your own CHEW tshirt…with Poyo on it!!!
I have mine already. I had Elliott buy me one while he was in San Diego. It’s very nice and awesome.
I know you can’t expect every creator you love to give you and Elliott EVERYTHING you’d covet gratis… But the shirts should have been a treat.
I mean, John can’t SWAY you with SWAG… You’ve both already expressed your UNDYING devotion… Long BEFORE such a shirt ever existed. 🙂
Cool. I can’t wait until I get mine in.
Doom War was awesome!
Jose, did you manage to read spider-man 639?
Holy crapfest, Batman!
How about some good news for a change.
this is so cool
I posted a like to that story in the last thread. I couldn’t believe it when I read that story it was like something out of a TV movie.
Did you? Oops. I must have missed it. My bad.
That’s ok it’s still a good story. I think people passed over it because they probably thought it was a link to my blog, and I was self promoting.
edit: I posted a link…
Well, if it was a link to your blog I actually would have been MORE inclined to check it out. 🙂
Jose, here’s another “review” to CHEW on from some of your “favorite” reviewers!
Gosh, they drive me CRACKERS!
Shadowland Bullseye #1
story by John Layman
art by Sean Chen
Admittedly bias toward all things Daredevil, I do still possess enough artistic objectivity to be able to smell it before I step in it. So, let me be the first to say, please be sure to wipe your feet before coming in the house. There was so much squandered potential here I lack the time and pages to regal you with this tale of woe. The story was incredibly weak, ESPECIALLY given that this was meant to be some kind of a send off to a character who truly has been arguably one of the Marvel U’s greatest villains. And to add insult to injury, Ben Urich as a main character was completely wasted given their history. The art isn’t really even worth noting either other than to say the books best image was one that we’ve seen in a couple of other books already. If you insist on reading this anyway, please, borrow my copy and save your money.
would you let me borrow your copy. oh wait the postage wouldn’t be worth it never mind by the way liked your millar post on your blog.
That was NOT my review above… That was SOMEBODY ELSE’S review… I was just passing it along to Jose. 😉
I REPEAT, I did NOT write the review above!!! This was the WORK PRODUCT of someone else… Reprinted simply to give Jose something to compare HIS REVIEW to!
I’d like to think MY REVIEWS aren’t so cliche-ridden! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I do not agree at all with the above “review” but will say that the issue WAS completely unnecessary.
I have to say I was impressed with Layman’s writing style, considering I don’t care about Daredevil or Bullseye one bit. The POV of Ben Ulrich and the kid was very good. Agree with Insider about the art though. Typical Marvel style. Blah!
Who wrote that review?
Sooo….you give it a A+
So, i went against my better judgment and picked up Shadowland #2. Much to my delight it was waaayyyyyy better than #1, even Tan’s art didn’t seem quite as awful. Diggle, you may have just won me back. Two words, GHOST RIDER! So awesome…
And then there’s omit part 2… yep, there it is… fuck you Joe Q, fuck you.
I would love to hear some more from you on OMIT part 2. 🙂
Hating on Joe Q? YES YES YES MOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I feel EXACTLY like that every time I eat a Dominos Pizza!
Or read a Millar or Bendis comic. 😉
Hey come on Insideman, I LOVE Dominos Pizza!
Venom Dominos is the Shit, sorry I mean its shit.
NO it is THE shit, not plain, hey while were talking pizza, is there a pizza place where you live called “Family Pizza”?
At least Domino’s apologized for there shitty pizza, but you would never have Millar or Bendis apologize for their shitty comics.
Man, Chris Matthews is schooling people left and right today on Hardball. Haven’t seen him this fired up in a while.
Watching it now, Matthews is a stand up dude.
The Meet the Press guy showed his hand and I think he leans left.
The Right is about to lose Hispanics/Latinos, man they can’t see the forrest for the trees.
Political junkie <— Tapes Countdown every day.
Bought Batman: Under the Hood today and wow…it’s good!
Judd Winick,I’m…sorry your in my good graces.
Spot on! Spotty.
I wish Marvel could do animation this good.
I don’t think they have a chance given that Loeb is in charge of that department now. I heard that Paul Dini is going to write the new Ultimate Spider-Man series so there is a slim chance of hope, but I doubt it.
Hot damn that Mofo is half GRASSHOPPER!
The Yanks should sign that guy up.
So here’s the SDCC trailer for Thor
A little late Gates, but cool nonetheless
Hi, there. For a few weeks now I’ve been looking to buy the Frank Miller DD omnibus but have had quite the hard time finding a copy that isn’t exorbitantly priced even when used. A short time ago I mamanged to find a sealed, brand new copy going for about $300.00 on ebay and another, whose condition is largely unceraint until the seller replies to my email, at about $209.00. There are cheaper copies online going for about $1.30 but their condidtion is likely poor and the more expensive couple I mentioned have the more favored red and black cover. Any advice on which I should purchase or not purchase at all?
Jose, would you happen to have a copy lying around the shop anywhere?
I’m sorry to say we don’t. We sold out a while ago and the book is now out of print, hence to ridiculous prices for it. You should head over to Insideman’s blog and ask him how to find a cheaper copy. He is really good at hunting down those types of books.
You’ve done the obvious,the only other thing I can think of is to maybe contact someone who’s selling they’re collection (craigslist,U-tube etc),but that can be ‘iffy’.Awhile back I tried to find a HC copy of Electra Lives, anything decent was going for over $100. I said screw it, a fair copy will turn up somewhere eventually.
A little off topic, but my favorite story from Frank’s original DD run was issue #191. It’s a thoughtful piece about violence and the nature of pop culture action heroes. I really wish he would do more stories like that instead of saying that Batman vs Riddler is silly, but Batman-like heroes vs Bin Ladin is on target.
You and me both, man. What the fuck happened to that guy? He used to be so awesome back in the day.
I love that issue of DD as well, Ed! It’s my second favorite next to DD#181. I wish that Frank Miller would come back to us…
I just looked around Jose and I believe Dre is going for the copy from an Amazon Seller. He claims mint in the listing and has excellent feedback.
That is the absolute lowest price I could find. Amazon will also help (somewhat) with the purchase if something were to happen.
Check into it Dre. I don’t know the seller but it seems like a good bet.
Yep. That’s the one I was initially going for but before I went through with the purchase for that price I wanted to browse the net a little more and throw out some inquiries to see If I’d find it any cheeper anywhere else. So far all I’ve managed to find are some in worse condition for not much less money at all and more expensive copies. Ahhh, well. Thanks for your effort, Insideman!
Tonight we dine in Hell!!!! 🙂
I’m going to have poutine tonight 😛
I want it dressed and zesty mordant!
Mmmh?..can’t we dine at Wolfgang Puck’s? Hell is so passe.
Do they have poutine? 😉
Poutine and protein and poontang!
The three Ps
I think you stole that from the Scott Pilgrim poster. 🙂
Wyclef Jean is going to run for president of Haiti. I’m of two minds, one hand COOL! It’s not like Arnold or Sonny Bono had experience before they ran for office. On the other, my cynical side is like Bono was mayor of Palm Springs and it’s not like Arnold has exactly saved California. That country is so devastated right now and it will definitely get worse before it gets better. I know Wyclef was some sort of quasi-ambassador but can he really get a fix on things?
Anyway watch this cool vid, if you blink you’ll miss the Bob Dylan cameo.
I don’t know how to feel about it one way or the other, I just hope who ever leads Haiti next does that nation right.
So has anyone been reading Keith Giffen and J. M. Demattis run on Booster Gold? I was wondering if it was any good.
Can someone explain to me the bad mouthing by reviewers on other sites of Doomwar.
They don’t know what good comics are…end of story!
Good comics I’m aways on the look out for those.
edit: I’m always on the lookout for those.
Who’s bad mouthing Doomwar now? Link please.
We will be reviewing this next week and as far as I am concerned ours is one of the few that matters when it comes to this title.
Comic Book Resource gave it like 1 and a half stars or something. I don’t care really, actually, I prefer it, I won’t have to worry about it getting overrated and hearing dumbass xbots rave about it. Let them have their Millar and Bendis, I’ll Keep DOOMWAR to myself ^_^
Just read it. Let’s take a look at some of this reviewers other review scores, shall we?
Brightest Day #7- 4 1/2 stars
Green Lantern #56- 4 stars
Artifacts #1- 4 stars
JLA #47- 3 stars
To me ALL of those books (which I DID read) were complete shit, especially the one he gave the highest rating to. There are other books that I buy that be gave high scores to but they are books CBR just WON’T give low scores to.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again: CBR, Comicsvine, Newsarama and IGN reviews at this juncture are fucking POINTLESS. I will not go into detail yet again why.
The review of Doomwar completely misses the point of the entire series and the fact that CBR let that review be published is a fucking disgrace. They should be ashamed of themselves. Also, the fact that hardly anyone over there actually knows what a good comic is just sad.
I will also add these other scores from CBR this week:
Avengers Prime #2- 4 stars
Ultimate Avengers 2 #6- 3 and 1/2 stars
Amazing Spider-Man #639- 3 and 1/2 stars
That should put into context what these guys think are good comics. Again, every one of those comics on that list were horse shit in my opinion. Especially that Avengers Prime issue. You want to talk about fucking pointless and writing for the trade.
Well at least at the CCW blog, we have people who can actually see the difference between good and bad comics! 🙂
Actually, it also puts into perspective what makes good ECONOMIC SENSE for CBR, Newsarama, etc, etc.
One of main reasons to trust your opinions (other than you are cool, straight-forward people) is the fact that you guys are NOT ad supported. As long as these other goons make their living off of sites that are COMIC BOOK PUBLISHER AD SUPPORTED– there will ALWAYS be pressure to SKEW review grades HIGHER.
I know this from experience. I was a major film reviewer (under an alias) for a national magazine for several years. My Editor would call in me in periodically and say, “We haven’t seen a pull quote from you in a while.” In other words, my reviews weren’t being quoted in MOVIE ADS… Which didn’t expose the magazine I worked for as much.
I said, “That’s because everything that has been coming out is SHIT and you know it.”
Didn’t faze her. She said, “Well couldn’t you just throw SALES and CORPORATE a bone now and then?”
And I said, “I tell you what. If you can get “X” actress to show up at my house ready to BLOW ME– I’ll write a review about “X” movie that will be legendary.”
“X” actress was knocking on my door 2 days later. Hollywood (and ANY creative industry) likes to act like reviews aren’t important… But they know different.
I’ve written two specific hardcover reviews on my blog in about 2 1/2 weeks. ONE was positive. I know for a fact (because I have the emails to prove it) that 9 people have bought the book because of my review… Imagine that… As my site understandably receives a fraction of the hits this Blog does.
The difference between a comic book staying afloat or dying is only a couple of thousand copies now. (Used to be marked by TENS OF THOUSANDS). But if a good selling book sells 16K to 20K copies… And Jose & Elliott’s positive reviews are responsible for 500 to 1,000 (or more) copies being sold from all the hits here and their CCW*TV You Tube channel… They ACTUALLY MAKE QUITE A DIFFERENCE in many people’s lives.
That’s why it is so GREAT that they take their reviews SO SERIOUSLY. It’s also why we can trust them over the fluff and puff those other bullshit sites spew.
(And no, to answer the inevitable question– I did NOT write the film review based on sexual favors from Actress “X” either… I wrote the review the film deserved. Period.)
good on you insideman although you can’t tell i’m clapping right now if i ever had any comic out i would ask the guys on here for a hand.
they’ve done wonders for all sorts of writers and artists most notabley chew john layman and rob gillorey owe them a lot.
i personaly have to thank elliot and jose and everyone who comments on here beacause of the guys on here i’ve branced out i used to be a marvel zombie before i started watching this show and if it wasn’yt for the people on here i wouldn’t be reading chew,mystery society, turf,shield ,generation lost,fantastic four, secret warriors,and probably more so let me just say to everyone on here THANK YOU ALL!
It’d be nice to think that something you’ve wrote has made any kind of difference at all.
The most you can do is write about the books you care about and that interest you and get the name out there. sometimes it takes a while for interest to build in something but eventually if something is good enough it will come to peoples attention.
Thanks. See above comment.
Sorry, I didn’t hit my refresh buttom before I posted the link.
It’s funny I went to a Barnes & Noble at a mall today because I had time to kill before I went to see a movie, and I flipped through a copy the Hotwire trade because it had Ellis’ name on it. After your review I may pick it up.
Did anyone watch CBR TV @ CCI: Robert Kirkman? Best part is the little jab at Mark Millar.
No but I may need to now.
Link please?! 🙂
I want to let everyone know that my wife is in labor right now. We’re in the hospital at present. Wish us luck folks!
Oh wow! Good luck Morlock. 🙂
Good luck Morlock. Hope everything goes well.
Thanks guys. Right now it’s 2:10 est and Helene still has had no contractions yet. So we’re just waiting. Doc says we might be waiting another 10 hours till baby comes. This sure is different then what happens in the movies.
Best of luck with everything Morlock… Please send your wife all our best wishes!
If it’s a boy are you going to name him Jose or Elliott… Or both? 🙂
Josie (and the pussycats) a nice young lady’s name… I’m just sayin’! 🙂
Ha! Good suggestions! I can ask the wife and see what she thinks. How about Bendis or Loeb for middle names?
“Stamps” is my suggestion 😛
See, Stamps I woulda thought you’d gone for James or Sean.
Ha Ha yeah, but I would want no doubts about who I named them after. It would be “Bond” or “Connery” 🙂
If T’Challa really did find a way to render the Earth’s source of Vibranium inert, how is it that Vibranium dependent devices, like Captain America’s shield and the Falcon’s wings, still function?
Isn’t Caps shield a composite of Vibranium and Adamantium? Maybe that’s why.
Contractions are starting folks!
So Justin from the CBC is a rapper now? Sure, why not.
The rap, audio tuning, and dancing were a FAIL, but the complaints are valid. Still a shitting music video. If you can call it that.
And Elliott and I were planning on doing a musical episode soon. Think we’ll just put that on the back burner for now.
Ha ha ha. The fastest way for me to lose respect for you, and the fastest way for me to possibly never return to this blog if you did something like that.
Ha ha ha, a musical episode, good one. Can you carry a tune?
I most certainly can not.
And neither can I, and I hate when people ask me that question.
*cringe* i did get a laugh out of that Scott Pilgrim bit at the end though.
Okay, my wife just told me to stop posting, so I’ll update when baby comes. Later!
I couldn’t help but smile after reading that. Let us know how everything goes.
You’ll look back on this moment 20 years from now Morlock and realize how smart you were to turn your damn computer off. 😉
congrats Morlock. Good luck dude!
Good Luck, Morlock! An stay off the message boards for at least a day!
“Great things come in bears”
I’m sitting there watching that horrid POS when I start thinking WHO is doing that SHITTY Yogi Bear voice?
Dan Aykroyd? Are you fucking kidding me? PRICELESS.
The best thing Johnny ever did was die young. Seriously.
have we learned nothing from those god awful Garfield and Chipmunk movies?? People actually pay money to watch this shit!? I think i’m going to go kill myself now…
This happens every year when some comic nerd brushes against somebody like Olivia Wilde…
… at San Diego
can i brush up against olivia next year? please?
If you’re wearing a Depend undergarment. Sure.
I can’t even make it through an entire episode of House without changing my pants at least three times.
Truth be told, neither can I.
Pedobear the movie?
i get to go see these guys in about an hour.
so i watched the first 4 episodes of persona trinity soul on the darkside this week
its pretty good lots of fun questions i want to see answered very emo which you would expect from a persona anime i mistakenly thought the youngest brother was a sister the japanese do love their androgyny solid art nice effect when the personas come out
decent opening and closing theme songs but not truly ipod worthy
I think I will check this out. Thanks for the heads up Kuru.
knocked out a couple of more episodes 6 was the best so far kind of wacky character development episode that works perfectly for this anime and the persona mytho as a whole the show is really coming together its starting to get that persona scooby gang feel to it
there is one girl in the show she is always stoned in a strange very perona related way it cracks me up it was a nice touch the writers of the anime added it works really well
i got some good news and i got some worse news. good news is jeff parker IS taking over HULK. the worse news is red hulk is joining the avengers under bendis’s control -_-
