This one’s for Insideman. Look for a possible review on his blog in the somewhat near future…maybe. 🙂
First off, I love the theme (which is unusual for me).
2nd: I love the acronym: H.O.T.D. (which is doubly strange because I don’t normally like acronyms)
3rd: Fan service. Oh My!
4th: Big breasted blondes AND zombies?
Where do I sign?
That was badass. Sign me up as well! 🙂
You can watch the first episode here for free:
i fighting my urge to post pointless videos
You can post one ya know? 🙂
that makes me feel great
i remember this!!! i am SO stealing it =D
One of my faveorite animes I am currently watching right now, if you love shows like gundam, code geass, and macross check this show out.
The screen shot of Joey Q’s Cup O’ Video 3 on the home page of CBR is stupid and so is the video.
Oh, I totally agree.
I was going to say it was retard, but I think that is insulting to retarded people.
Also, I was going to put up a video from the Hangover, but I think they have been taken down by Sony.
Ah Sony, you make an enjoyable video game console but you can still be a bunch of pricks.
God, JQ looks beyond stupid.
How do these pieces of shit always roll uphill?
If I was the head of Disney this doofus would be canned– as Jose would say– toot sweet.
Instead he gets promoted. To President of Insanely Stupid Face Making… I guess.
After O.M.I.T. I have avoided any video he’s in and every book that he does the art for or cover for. I don’t feel a need to explain my feelings about Joe Quesada ’cause I’m sure you guys know by know about how I feel towards him 🙂
so you like him, right?
How’d you know!? That’s TOTALLY how I feel about him 😉 Wanna know how I feel about Loeb?
is he the voice of his generation?
Just watching that and he’s getting fat again.
Looking like Bob’s Big Boy
these guys rage
not bad though i do think i would enjoy them more under the influence of something or the other. i’ve been on a Gogol Bordello kick myself lately
Gogol Bordello is one of a kind, they would be very fun to see live.
i got to see them live about a month ago and they blew my socks off. i can say without doubt that it was the best live show i had ever seen
When exactly in the future does this rock arrive? I would like to mark the date on my calendar so I don’t miss it. 🙂
Best skit show no one watched.
fun with rocker launchers
Rampage my old friend!
I has half expecting Blade to appear and stake blood suckers 🙂
Speaking of Blade: did anybody read the blade one-shot that came out this week?
Nah, staying away from X-men related stuff.
I have a plan for if I ever work for Marvel as a writer: Purposely write over-the-top scenes to see how far Marvel editors will let me go until they tell me, “Woah woah woah! You can’t do that!”
i foresee Deliverance with Hulk and Spidey…. poor spidey.
Maybe Hulk. Not Spidey. I love that character too much. Maybe I could execute this plan on the Ultimate Universe? Oh wait…
ohhh god it still sends shivers down my spine
This is my favorite line from the thread so far 🙂 ha ha
Heh, I’ve got a funnie yet to be shown with that in mind.
Don’t vote for Sen. King she hates comics.
I’m a loyal Democrat so when I type these words know that I mean them very strongly.
That female dog has got to go & get the hell out of politics! I hope her challenger wins the race.
What is this, the 1950s? Somewhere, Fredric Wertham is smiling.
She must have read a Bendis or Millar comic.
Probably would have worked better if the kids were reading Bendis comics. Ya know, because Bendis is single handily responsible for all future sociopaths on the account of all the violence, misogyny and apathy in his fucking shite comics. Fuck Bendis.
(This message has been approved by J.)
well that made me smile
You know who really disturbs me? Garth Ennis, I had to stop reading the BOYS I actually felt it was fucking with my soul to keep reading his stuff.
I like the boys
Better man than me, between The BOYS and Crossed Garth needs a good talking too.
I couldn’t agree more. It seems he’s violent for the sake of being violent.
I like the boys as well.
You’ll get tired of it one day, that or I’ll be seeing you on a ‘CNN breaking news segment’ in a few years.
lol I dont think I will become a killer from reading the boys. 🙂 well I liked the first trade and I am probably gonna read the 2nd and 3rd trade.
I also met the artist Darick Robertson at Comic-Con who was a really nice guy and he autographed my copy of the boys.
You have a long way to go.
The last one I read is #45 and although it meanders around and has some really long subplots, I still enjoy The Boys. Ennis has built this little world that is fucked up but totally believable(as in most things make since inside the world of the boys), this is one of many ways to look at the idea of the “hero” and our society, while having over-the-top-ennis-fun along the way.
I did like the dark humor in the first trade especially Butchers dog Terror which “fucks” things on command.
Darrick is from Jarjah I think.
Not really. That’s why I stopped reading it. Well, that and it was getting really fucking boring…just like a Neil Gaiman comic.
*Rolls Jose’s eyes for him*
Why stop there? Millar can be responsible for all the criminals who throw babies out of windows and electrocute someone’s balls. And Loeb can be responsible for all the fanboiz who pursue their power fantasies which involve objectify women and yelling poorly written dialogue.
Loeb should’ve been blamed a long time ago for Teenwolf2.
Try watching a good movie when a baby spontaneously erupts into into a crying factory. Now I’m not advocating that the Olympics sanction official baby tosses, I’m just sayin’……. 🙂
Wow, I’m being really negative right now… 😦 That’s a good sign that school is right around the corner…
On a happier note: I’m reading a lot of really awesome comic book series in absolutely no order! Scott Pilgrim, Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E., The Losers, Global Frequency, and old-school issues of ASM.
man youre lucky you have a few days of summer left I had to start school early. 😦
I’m not so lucky actually 🙂 I start school on Tuesday. I’m in that bizarre situation where I’m dreading going back, but a part of me can’t wait to see my friends again. Overall, I’m not looking forward to classes at all.
When did you have to start school megamanx4ever?
this week on monday but I was glad I got to see my friends again.
HA, suckas! I have been out of school for 17 years! Booya! School is fo’ fools and all that jazz.
Haha, can anyone else picture Jose as a teacher?
Had he been a teacher… I could have seen a lot of detention being served on my “then” future.
It would be awesome to have Jose as an teacher and we could get extra credit for tearibg up bendis and loeb comics! 🙂
If Jose was my teacher I’d probably look forward to school. “Avoiding crappy comics 101”. 🙂
J would probaly burn the school down after his first week on the job.
First week? Pfffft, first 3 days…tops.
great picks by the way! 🙂
I’ve been reading a lot of great stuff this year that has been a really surreal experiance reading. I feel that way because a lot of stuff I’ve been reading I never thought I’d like as much as I do now. For example: The Losers, Nextwave, Scarlet, Doomwar, Avengers Academy, Secret Avengers, Andy Diggle’s DD, Power Girl, AKA Goldfish,… damn I could go on and on! That’s one of the many great things about collecting comics!
Daredevil…Is it really ending forever???
Probably not. Most likely case scenario is it will get a re-launch and after about 30-35 issues they’ll re-number it at #550.
Ummm, no. This is Marvel we are talking about. They are going to relaunch all of their fucking comics with new #1’s. And then 3 issues later they will go back to the old numbering. Why? Because Joey Q. is a piece of shit who doesn’t know how to be an editor in chief…and because Marvel is a publicly traded company who needs to answer to shareholders.
I think it’s time for some shameless self promotion.
Is there any better kind of promotion? You are the Mark Millar of the CCW Nation.
I’m just kidding. If you have read Elliott’s “tweets” you know that he is the Mark Millar of CCW…and it makes me fucking sick.
So, I take it that it was Elliott’s idea for a CCW*TV twitter account.
No, actually it was mine. 99% of the CCW tweets are me. Elliot has his own shite twitter account over at GeekToMe. You can tell when I do the tweets because they are actually somewhat clever.
I guess that’s good to hear.
Well, you would guess right. 🙂
What is this twitter?
Twitter As I Understand It
WhoGivesA$|-|#: I’m takin’ a dump
AWhoGivesA$|-|!+: That’s awesome
WhoGives@%|-|!+ Yeah(grunt),I know
@WhoGivesA$|-|!+: Great, now I gotta take a dump
@WhoGivesA$|-|!+: yeah, cool
conversation continues tomorrow
it’s my dream conversation
I have no problem with a lot of promotion as long as it’s good and makes me what to check out whatever they’re promoting. Mark Millar does not fall into that category. Not even close. His promotion makes me sick to my stomach. I’m not even joking.
Hope your right comicbookdude….IT’s lame and clichéd, but much better then the series ending for good!
I honestly don’t understand re-numbering at all. They never stick to it for long. I love when they’d have books like ASM#30, but in faded #s you’d see #471, so that itself defeats the purpose of re-numbering.
re-numbering is a ploy to get new readers, nothing more. Just as long as there’s marketing departments, re-numbering will always being around.
Ultimate Spider-Man is going back to the old numbering in November.
I read about that. Such a pointless re-launch. Isn’t Sara Pachelli (hope that’s how her last name is spelled) going to be the regular artist for USM? A woman drawing a Bendis book= Bendis’ worst nightmare 🙂
Or what I like to call justice.
What else would be Bendis’ worst nightmare?
Having Karen Berger named new EIC at Marvel?
An issue of Avengers where they actually do something.
btw how was Avengers#4, Jose?
Had a lot of action in it but certainly DID NOT make up for the fist 3 issues. Bendis is TOTALLY writing for the trade. You can totally see it. Too bad people buying the monthlies had to spend $12 before the story got anywhere. This will bring about the death of monthly comics just like E and I have already discussed in our vids.
I wish Bendis realized that he can actually write some awesome fight scenes. The battles he has written in the first volume of USM are some of the best battles I’ve ever read in comic books.
Sara is an awesome artist tough. She drew the Namora one-shot a couple of months ago. But I totally agree. Putting a female artist alongside Bendis is nothing but trouble. Just wait till he has Kingpin sexually assault Gwen Stacy. Let’s see how that goes down without a problem.
Oh yeah I agree that Sara is an awesome artist and I’m glad she’s getting some recognition now. If the book was $2.99 I’d probably be buying USM.
Well that’s just dandy.
La Fuenta must have gotten tired of Bendis’ none collaborative nature.
For once I hope you guys are right and this IS a shameful attempt for sales by Marvel. Because if this IS the end of Daredevil, it’s seriously bad news and it’s getting hardly any publicity at all!
There will no doubt be a “new” Daredevil” for a while and when people get really fucking sick of that Marvel WILL bring Matt back. No doubt.
lets just hope its not Darepool
Jeez louise no, you put that in the air! It’s now on the interwebs it will become apart of the zeitgeist and Axel Alonso with bring us Darepool.
Marvel brought back Ravage 2099 (Oh so briefly, thank jeebus!)Matt Murdock will be DD again.
That’s why Nightcrawler’s death landed like dud, it really doesn’t matter at this point.
A new guy in a Daredevil suit? WOW, just hearing you bring up that lame, over-used concept I’m ALREADY sick of it. Originality is truly DEAD @ Marvel if they even attempt that.
Marvel’s originality died when they brought back Norman Osborn. btw who wrote that story? Because I kinda want to punch that person in the face. I HATE Norman Osborn. Dark Reign didn’t help fix that AT ALL. I got reeeeeeeeeeally sick of seeing his ugly mug in every Marvel comic I’d read (unless he was getting beaten up, which I love when that happens 🙂 )
They will UC. Haven’t you seen the “teaser” ads for the “NEW Man Without Fear”?
Kravin? Isn’t he dead? Also, he’s a coward! That’s his character! He cannot be a “man without fear”. Wow, Marvel really doesn’t give a damn anymore do they?
He got resurrected in The Grim Hunt spider-man story.
I thought he died after he got resurrected? Dang, I’ve been lied to.
Nope. Kraven is still knocking about. Thanks Joey Q and Joe Kelly for ruining one of the best comic stories EVER. Asshats.
Fuck, Joe Kelly wrote that?
Wow Im probably the only person on CCW who liked Grim Hunt. 🙂
Kraven’s Last Hunt was my first superhero comic ever. The fact the Marvel shat all over it didn’t make me very happy…at all.
I will admit it was no where near as good as The Gauntlet Rhino story or American Son story Joe Kelly did.
The Shat has hit the fan. Wait, that doesn’t sound wright. 🙂
I feel your pain, J. As most of you the Ultimate Universe re-energized my interest in collecting comics. But then fucker Jeph Loeb had to piss and shit all over it with Ultimatum. What he’s currently doing in the Ultimate U isn’t helping change my feelings either.
I actually remember getting so angry over Ultimatum that I was throwing things and weeping a little bit. I couldn’t believe Loeb was doing what he was doing to the UU. That bastard owes me a piece of my soul.
(Forgive me for my salty language this evening guys. I’m usually not like this).
Whoops! At the beginning I meant, “As most of you guys know…” Ugh, it’s getting late. I’m gonna call it a night soon.
No megaman I liked it too. Guys like you and me probably don’t have that connection to kraven like Jose, and some of the people who have read comics a lot longer do.
You are completely right Tom. I have a very, very strong emotional attachment to Kraven’s Last Hunt and that certainly DID play a part in me not liking Grim Hunt. The fact the Joe Kelly had Spidey almost RIP OFF Sasha’s FACE didn’t help matters. Sorry but that is NOT Spider-Man! How that got past the editors is beyond belief. Marvel is quickly killing my love for the first superhero I ever felt a connection to. OMIT very well could be the final nail in the coffin.
Because the editors dont give a shit unless you have a bad guy smoking.
I wasn’t sure going in, but I was happy with the ending. The spiffy art sure helped. Was the point of the while DeMattis short to let readers know that he was ok with the resurrection? I’m glad that the Kraven family was trimmed down. All for a waste thou, Kraven was a lame ass and dying was the only thing he did good. Cain and Julia Carpenter have promising story to tell coming out of it.
i thought the grim hunt was ok, nothing special, though i agree the rhino story was probably one of my favorite asm ones in recent history
Yes, Joe Kelly did write that. We did a video review for the first issue and liked it but it was completely down hill from there.
How did it get pass the editors? Just remember Joe Kelly wrote for Marvel back when Toy Biz owned Marvel and they cancelled a proposed horror line. I think the editors now probably encouraged this mess. These are the same editors that let Clint Barton have sex with memory loss Wanda and Clint Barton try to kill Norman Osbourne. They’re sitting around thinking “Kids today like ‘edgy’ stuff so let’s appeal to their purient interests.”
I’ll never be mad at Spidey, just the people in charge who play to the lowest common denominator ( or what THEY think is the lowest denominator) to make a fast buck. It’s that mentality that hurts comics.
This was a drunk post. I meant to imply that it’s the same regime, not the individual editors. (smiley face)
Thankfully I have avoided Grim Hunt and haven’t read it…… yet.
Read parts of it, wasn’t so bad.
HOLY F!!! NO I hadn’t seen that piece of crap…And I’m already pissed off that I did…WOW that is pathetic! I thought you were just assuming the worst out of Marvel.
I never assume. I only speak facts. 🙂
Follow me or else
I’m there brother.
My tweets will be completely devoid of self editing, enjoy.
That’s funny Deemar. I was going to tell you that you should tweet. 140 characters is exactly your short but sweet style. I’m there too!
Yep, I’m following you already.
I should’ve tweeted a long time ago, short simple phrases!
It’s like MTV,retard haiku!
I saw that you are following me. Thanks.
Get ready for the onslaught though. Elliott tweets 8 to 20 times a day. (I kid… sort of.) 😉
Writers gotta write! Heh
Follow me foo!
Sent you a haiku enjoy
had u posted your intent earlier…my initial response might have been a li’l bit different, but not much though.
I’m on a bunch of things, but Twitter is my Kryptonite. Must not succumb
Ijust finished reading Walking Dead vol. 1-12 and it was awesome!
Mega you have passed the rites of geekhood.
I’ve only read the first two volumes. I really need to catch up.
yes it is, i think kirkman puts out more quality books in a month than marvel does
Great observation Smokey
Well, my handicapped friend just fell over. She just called. Thankfully she’s not hurt. So I have to run and get her off the floor. Oh joy. Will return.
Good man save the day!
Hope she’ll alright
Yeah she has MS. She tries her best but she falls on occasion. Tonight she happened to fall at 1:30am PDT.
Been friends since she was a young kid. She was a RN at LA Childrens Hospital. After dealing with this disease for 20 years, she finally had to take an early retirement.
All her friends have abandoned her. No one calls anymore. No one comes by. Her Dad’s dead. Her brother suffered young from a brain tumor. Her Mom lives in New York. I’m the only person left.
I had to wind my way through the mounds of paperwork that were thrown at her by the Federal Government when she retired young– but just like everything else in my life– I taught myself, figured it all out and got her all the benefits that she was due.
People ask me why I do it. Try to make me out as some “angel” or something… and I simply tell them SHE WOULD HAVE DONE IT FOR ME.
It’s the ONLY way I know how to repay years of trust and friendship. All the other fair weather friends can go screw. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Dude, you’re awesome. Wish there were more people like you.
I’m going use my one vid post card on this one cuz I think it rules…
I can tie it into comics. In Avengers #137 where the Beast joins he explains to the Avengers that he got over his depression about being furry by listening to Stevie Wonder. I’m serious! Read the comic!
Love RayRay. I just bought a few of his older albums on vinyl the other day.
An avid Swear All You Like Blog Reader found a gorgeous young woman who loves to read Manga!
*Semi NSFW– depends on your boss. 😉
Well I’m off to pt1 of purchasing my last comics for ’10.
Think Geek has Stay Puff marshmallows and…they’re caffeinated! Awesome on so many levels, sadly they are 20 bucks a box. Today is the day that I have found a food to complement my massive red bull consumption. I just have to remember not to think about the marshmallow man logo around Gozer.
I love those but I am afraid I would eat them.
Too rich for my blood. 😉
Time for some J-Pop
and some old school J-pop…ish
Very nice. I liked the old school song, although I dig the energy in the first video.
More than one video. You broke the rules, but I think it was worth it.
This looks to be one of the biggest marketing plugs for anything ever made. Well except for maybe the wizard. 🙂
well pt1 was a almost a bust….. current issue of DD/S’land…check, current issue of Guarding the Globe..check, current ish of WW…check
WW #700 bust…WW #701…bust, Supes #’s 700&702…bust DoomWar #’s 5 & 6 bust
M-Glories… bust, MysterySociety #2…bust
For a quarter each I did get 3issues of JLE, 2issues of WildstormRising and an issue ea. of The Avengers: Stern/Buscema, FF: Byrne and Deathblow: Choi/Lee
I’m trusting my 2nd bookstore can fill in the blanx
team4 star dbz abridged is one of the joys of geekdom
Ahhh Saturday nite. The Nite I spend reading tons of comics, watching tons of anime, and maybe composing some more CCW themes.
@ Mike: How much did that Midi set you back?
Only about $80. I am a musician and work at Guitar Center so I got a discount. Which was nice.
It was the OXYGEN 25 by M-AUDIO.
Very decent for what it can do.
Ahhh Saturday nite. The Nite I spend reading tons of comics, watching tons of porn, and maybe drawing some more CCW Funnies.
@ D: Me to, except for that last one, and not always in that order
Ha! I bet I know which one is first.
I get my anime and porn done in the same category 😉
Whew! I’m on Scott Pilgrim volume 6!!! I finished reading volume 5 really quickly and I thought, “Holy crap am I really finished with this volume???” Scott Pilgrim is not only one of the best comic books I’ve read this year, it’s one of the best comic books I’ve ever read.
Have any of you guys read High Society by Dave Sim? My Dad bought the TPB of it for me because he felt that it was a story I’d need to read to become a good writer. I’m enjoying it so far.
Having a marathon reading session CBD?
Heck yeah Dee! I bought so much reading material at Wizard World that it’s distracting me from the reading I’m supposed to be doing for school over the summer, dangit! Good thing is I’m 3/4ths done with one book for school and almost half-way through the other book for school. Gotta get it done in 2 and 1/2 days! Can I do it? YES I… can?
You sure can my man.
Don’t slack on them school books, read those first.
Do it! Do it!
I’m sure I can as well. I’m one of those people who like to take time reading books, but if a deadline for when I should’ve read the book comes near I’m usually able to pick up the pace of my reading. Hopefully I can pull that off these next couple of days and still manage to read a few comic books 🙂 Also English is the FIRST class I have this year, so I’m hoping we don’t have to have our books done that day, we didn’t last year, but who knows.
Hell I might have to pay you to do my class work, you on a college level yet?
I need brainiacs
No I’m an 11th grader.
Damn your pubescent mind.
I’ll have to do the work myself. 😦
this will not end well
Sorry Dee 😦
I’ve checked out a few of the early issues of Sim’s Cerebus, but that’s about it.
Oh and that issue of Spawn that gueststarred Cerebus and cameoed about all the heroes in the DC and M universe although they were someowhat strategically obscured by well placed shadows.
To answer the question that was asked…..um, no I’ve never checked out HighSociety 🙂
Anyone else pick up Guarding the Globe? I thought it was good, but not blow your mind away good. 6 pgs of filler, 22 pgs of story
Yep love it, wish it was more than a mini
I read it, but I haven’t read any invincible, so I though it was 3.7 out of 5. I’m sure if I had any attachment to these characters, I would had liked it even more.
Yeah you’ll need to brush up on yer Kirkmanverse
Actually while I’m not surprised that you liked it, D. I am surprised that you liked it as much as you did, considering that Kaboomerang hasn’t made his appearance yet:-)
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I BID YOU THE THEME SONGS OF THE CCW NATION!
Well, I’ve only written three, but I worked hard on them, and hope you guys enjoy it.
Deemar, did the profile shots for the characters. As time goes by I’ll be able to make a theme for you all, but with working full time, it’ll be a while. Until then, enjoy Pobra’s theme, Deemar’s theme and Jose’s Battle theme 🙂
If anyone has a special request in terms of music they love, when I compose their theme, I’ll try to incorporate that genre! 🙂
Mine’s too sad, I’m a batshit muthafucker! it needs mo’batshit with Hiphop flare.
The rest are fooking awesome!
I can work some “part 2” themes in. Part 2 of Deemar’s will be funkafied for sure.
Pobra’s theme is definitely my favorite, but great job Mike.
Those are pretty good Mike! My favorite one was probably Deemar’s. That ending was cool. Pobra’s theme reminds me of the music in the GB Color game Yu-Gi-Oh! Dark Duel Stories video game! Which isn’t a bad thing since I have fond memories of that game. Jose’s battle music makes me want to write a series with him fighting all the comic book creators he hates 🙂 I bet John Layman would buy that 😉
Impressive music, Mike! I agree with CBD, my favorite one was Deemar’s theme. It made me think of maybe a the intro to 70’s drama or something.
I need more funk in my theme.
Man, you have the best theme so far and you bitchin’?
I know…I know…
I wanted funk
Well, I was hoping to get some tail in these final years of the decade but that didn’t happen. You don’t see me bitchin’ about that do you? 😛
I wanted funk and you wanted skunk and neither of us gets what we deserve.
But your right, Mikey I Ah-paw-wah-gize!
@ Nin J: I think your bitchin’ about getting no tail manifests itself in some of your reviews, not to mention your dynamic with E.
I am a HUGE fan of this current project of yours Mike. My theme was awesome, it was murky and menacing but with a mellow hip-hop beat, very cool. But i think D’s was my favorite. And the avatar’s are all pretty bad-ass Deemar. Well done lads!
Daredevil: Reborn that sounds familiar. Oh yeah, they did the same to Captain America. Oh shit.
It’s called branding
BP does it, Enron does it why shouldn’t Marvel?
I think I read it before in Green Lantern: Rebirth. Only it was by Geoff Johns, from DC, and not very good.
It’s called parallel marketing
Burger King does it to McDonalds, LG does it to Apple, Crack does it to Cocaine, why can’t Marvel do it to DC?
Ugggg…for real? Jeeeezus.
You know what want to see? Marvel Reborn: The Return of Jack “The Motherfucking King” Kirby.
Waittttt. I’m mostly looking forward to “Bringing Down the House of Ideas”. In which Marvel just stops. It’ll be a requiem, and an ending. I don’t know about being reborn though 😉
How appropriate today was his birthday. Kirby was the man who helped make Marvel. He deserves more credit and respect than he’s getting. I just want to smack Marvel and say, “You better treat Kirby’s family with the respect they deserve. If it weren’t for him you wouldn’t have you precious job!” Ungrateful morons.
Yesterday I called Marvel hypocrites. Today I called them ungrateful morons. What will I call them tomorrow? Place your bets everyone! 🙂
$10 on DISMARVEL or MARVNEY
Afterbirth or Abortion
Afterbirth, it’s more tactile.
Anyone else see Kirkman on Freshink?
Not I. Was it any good or did Blair Butler just talk about how she thinks Mark Millar is a better writer than Kirkman the entire time?
She always feels the need to push The Walking Dead, and of course they talked about the new series on AMC.
Did she have a moustache?
more like Sanchez the dirty kind
Nope, but then again I’ve never lsitened to a word Blair says only her mammeries.
Woman’s voice and personality works better than Demerol to put me to sleep. In fact, just thinkin……..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
That is one of Maberry’s favorite comics right now, on his blog he will be doing a interview with him (Kirkman) that will be posted around the time the show airs. That was another funny moment when I met Maberry was a friend of Maberry’s saw my issue of Marvel U vs. The Punisher and asked Maberry didn’t I read this in black and white last month, and laughs were had all around.
Does Marvel practice what they preach?
“I think in general we have a pretty simple philosophy at Marvel,” said Brevoort. “We want to sell comics, that’s our business, but our belief where everything comes from is ‘People like good stuff.’ People want good stories, people like things that are well done. ‘Good material equals good sales’ is the fundamental underlying premise that underlies everything we do.”
Brevoort is undead.
The man has obvisously sold his soul lock, stock and barrel to gain a permanent footing at Marvel. Who could buy that marlarkey he’s peddling?
His Mama… But only to shut him up.
I think he sold his mama in the deal also.
Mephisto has been busy
Well, in a down economy I try to keep as busy as possible.
Heh, you too blame for all of this OMD and O.S.H.I.T. shit?
You owe me $32 dollars for OMD ya devil
All deals are final and non-returnable.
I just make the deals, I’m not a miracle worker.
You’ll hear from my attorney
HA HA HA. Devil vs. Devil
Two enter, one will leave.
Justice is blind.
Devil v Devil like that? I’m the man.
The Mighty PHIL enters the stage!
It ain’t working Mikey
oh and sorry for my baby tantrum.
Yeah I had it set to private by mistake. I just changed it, working now?
Jose’s theme: Got that hangin’ ’round the cemtary at X-mas funk to it. Seems more like a CBSack theme…………gr8 sound, nonetheless
Dee’s Theme: has that ancient Indian burial ground groove goin…sounds sacred, but u can still bop your head to it
Pobra’s theme: Kraftwerk meets Yaz
The Mighty…, well Me.. How quickly an opinion can change. At 1st I was like what’s with daggone whistlin’, then after about 8 seconds I was jammin’ to it…kind of a 70’s theme 2000ed up! Is it wrong of me that I liked mine the best?
Excellent job, Mike
You two get a room
Ha ha…you know how much rooms cost these days?
b t w I happened to go back to Mike’s themes and by happenstance found out that you could click on the thumbnails next to the songs, and they would enlarge.
Pobra “Commander” was a nice touch
I dug that apparently the bastard child of Bishop & Blade (I feel kinda bad now makin you a Black Daredevil) I’m gonna have to give you a less parodyish look in the future………On the other hand I’m sure you’ll dog me at some point in Deemar’s Sunday Funnies, so I’ll play it by ear 🙂
Yourself: Dig u, lookin’ like a Superfied Black Knight
Short end of the stick? Mr. Melendez’ deal is looking like str8 up Jose Potter, or am I misreading it?
Haha, I’m happy you liked it.
Overall, I worked hardest with Jose’s theme, because I played the organ, then recorded my clarinet, then bass, some bells, finally drums. There’s a lot of tracks on it, and I’m quite proud of it. Its an old melody I wrote a while back for a video game that never went anywhere, and I’m happy I could use it.
Deemar’s theme was the most fun to play, cause it was really easy to move to it. I wanted it to have the same vibe as “Cammy’s theme” from street fighter.
Phil’s, your theme was fun too. Ever since I bought that Midi, I’ve been able to do lots of synth sounds, so I’m trying to have as much fun with them as possible, same with Pobra’s theme.
still to come,
INSIDEMAN\MSPOT\and we’ll just make the last a surprise 😉
We gots some talented mofos on this blog.
Who’s a OBGYN? C’mon I know we got one.
Hey Mike, I’m lookin’ to do a podcast or somethin’ in the near futre. Any chance you could let me use the song that you composed for me to use as my thems song….providing of course if I can find a seamless way of incorporating it
Of course man!
Kurt Busiek’s Career 1983-2010
That’s OK… It was over about 6 years ago by his own hand. This bs just puts a stamp on it. (And reinforces what I keep saying about writers having “X” number of good stories in them.)
I think Kurt has some gas left in the tank, but yeah it smells of sour grapes yet he speaks more truth than not.
I read this earlier and I don’t think this changes much. I bet a lot of people, that have over 100 long boxes, have read maybe too many superhero story’s to continue to enjoy them. Kurt is a golden and silver age kinda guy, he puts so much continuity in his comics that it is almost to the point of too much. I don’t think it’s surprising that some people don’t like Hickman’s style of a lot of information but not a lot of answers and just hints in terms of plot. I love it but that’s just me. Busiek has still done great things for comics, just a small sample: without him, no Parker on T-Bolts.
You’re right Tom… This won’t change a thing in the industry.
Except for the person who wrote it. (Be it Busiek or XXXX or XXXXX). Their professional life is damaged… Whether they profess to not want to write DC or Marvel crossover events anymore… or not.
A lot of older writers threw out the same kind of rhetoric during their careers. Now people like Wolfman and Wein would give their left nut just for ONE regular monthly writing gig.
The industry is that small and that petty.
And whatever happened to “Never Say Never”? This writer may not want to write those events today– but they may also want to put food on their table in a couple of years too.
If it’s Busiek– it doesn’t matter. Somewhere in the last 5 to 6 years he ran out of talent (at least while working for the majors). After that 52-week crapfest– “Trinity”– and the other Superman crap he recently wrote for DC… I would give him his wish (if it is his wish) and keep him off mainstream superhero books forever (or at least the foreseeable future).
Youz a cold heart MAN!
He don’t play by no rules, people telling lies!
Remind me again WHO you wished would fall into a 63 YEAR COMA Deemar? 😉
Dude, you so remind me of my best friend via your posts it’s scary.
We are bromance compatible
This is for you Insideman. 🙂
Ha! that never gets old.
It NEVER gets old man.
Elliot loves it, of course.
I don’t think he said anything that shocking that would cause him trouble working for the big two in the future. I’m sure most people working for the big two feel the same way. What he stated were just facts: Most of the superhero stuff out there sucks. Well when there is 10 ironman titles, 15 thor titles, 20 deadpool titles, 25 batman titles, 999 x-men titles, ect, ect, ect. Even the people working for DC or Marvel know that if you put 50 books out in one week your only going to have 2-3 great pieces of work, the rest is just to make money.
More truth to power right there!
WE In CHURCH UP IN THIS!
I think it does one positive thing, it gives us a peek behind the curtain a real peak. Not some CBR sponsored “Exclusive”
Hey Tom, you KNOW I love Hickman but Busiek is right about his books. I seriously, SERIOUSLY. think that if he is not careful Hickman WILL BE the new Bendis. I am sick of Secret Warriors and almost DONE with FF for the EXACT reason Busiek mentions. There is NOT enough story in each issue. Hickman IS writing for the fucking trade just like BENDIS taught him to. SHIELD n the other hand is a different thing all together. THAT is classic Hickman.
Man, I have been meaning to get that off my chest for a while.
It’s a night of coming clean, I’ve felt the same way about Hickman’s SW and FF, but I do find his Fantastic Four smart and full of ideas unlike *Cough* Millar *cough*
It’s what I’ve said before, Bendis is bleeding into the very fabric of Marvel, there is no aspect of the current Marvel U that doesn’t have his influence and notice the bit that don’t. Criticaly acclaimed but fails to sell.
I really think the general fandom are a bunch of fuckwits.
I have felt it coming from you for a while. And it’s very understandable, I dropped secret warriors about 8 months ago just for that reason. I still like FF, and SHEILD is one of my favorite books, even though it is still in the early stages.
Yeah, it’s like taking a really…really…really…reaaallly satisfying dump.
Hickman’s S.H.I.E.L.D. is what keeps me on his team.
He is razor close to being “Bendized”
Hickman and Bendis had VERY similar starts in comics. They both wrote and drew intelligent, engaging comics while at Image. At Marvel they mostly have become water downed versions of their former selves. I really hope that Hickman can escape that fate before it is too late.
I hope so too J, I hope so too.
I wish I could give Busiek a terrorist fist bump right now. Much respect.
He is just saying what the CCW has been saying for years. Why is that so wrong? I will now buy the first couple of issues of whatever comic he puts out next (regardless if they are good or not) in support.
He definately got my attention.
After Trinity I did kinda write him off.
Ya, Trinity was a steaming pile of shit. I am not going to defend that book.
Don;t forget his recent Superman stint either!
As I said I left Busiek alone after Trinity
As much of a hard on I have for Mark Bagley, he wasn’t his best.
I totally agree with both you guys. But I do want to make the following clear:
I’m not saying I dislike Kurt. I’m not saying others should dislike him… And I am sure as hell not saying that he should be penalized for TELLING THE TRUTH.
I am just saying he WILL be penalized.
I think if Kurt said it– and if he is now owning up to it… He has TREMENDOUS BALLS. And I think it’s great if you want to support him on that by buying his books in the future.
Otherise, I am only telling the truth. If he did write this statement– the bigwigs will NOT let this slide. They will “NOTE” it. This is a man who made his BANK on the superhero genre– from BOTH of the Big Two.
They will NOT like him shitting on their party.(Can you imagine Tom Brevoort taking these statements with a grain of salt? Man’s got thinner skin than almost anybody in comics.)
The only other fact I noted was that Trinity sucked major and his recent (from the last 2 years or so) Superman sucked balls too.
If those two efforts are indicative of his current superhero mindset… He is played out– at least as far as the superhero genre goes.
Every writer loses his muse. I have TONS of Busiek work in my PERMANENT COLLECTION. I have recently bought several of his Marvel HC reprints. I have nothing but respect for the man’s talent.
But if you had told me he was ever going to write something as shitty as TRINITY… After writing Astro City and Marvels– I would have laughed at you so hard my balls would’ve shook off.
(And if anything– his superb Conan ADAPTATION work from a couple of years ago DOES prove he has something left in the tank, Deemar. Still, you’d have to be the biggest hack in the world to ruin a Conan ADAPTATION. Robert E. Howard literally wrote like a comic book writer. You could hand a great artist a Conan book and I bet they could almost adapt some of those stories with NO words and they would still look beautiful and be completely understandable.)
Huh..huh you said “Penalized”
sounds like penis
For the most part I agree with his statements, but the one that caught me was him saying something to the effect of Marvel wants flashy artists to make up for the lack of good story telling. So, what would you say about MARVELS?
Who knows what lurks in the hearts of geeky men?
The MSpot knows!
Your Damn Right!
AND THAT’S the bottom line because MSpot said so!
Oh no you didn’t!
Here’s HOPEFULLY something good that will come from this mess.
I just purchased the Good Neighbors Vol 1 and Vol 2 HCs that Kurt touts… And I dig Ted Naifeh’s artwork.
Both books are listed 7th Grade and up… So I figured I might be able to understand them if I take.it.real.slooooooooooow.
With all the Stone Cold references I was wondering if anyone saw The Expendables? Any Good?
Yes and no
Stamps loved it. I haven’t seen it yet.
It was good if you like mindless action. I didn’t like it. I do like Stallone though.
I did really like it. It’s a fun movie. Of course I did go in knowing that it wasn’t going to be a life altering movie. The action scenes are well planed and executed. Stalone was pretty good in the flick, though there were a few sentences that I swear he wasn’t speaking english in lol
I will be a good Mexican and go see Machete next weekend.
He jumps from a window using a man’s intestines as a rope I am there.
Machete it is.
Its got Segal, that means I’m in.
Now thats nice! He deserves this.
I totally agree with what Busiek said, well in truth he actually said what we here in the CCW nation have been bitching about for ages.
About Hickman’s storytelling. to be honest i stoped reading his books along time ago, although i am reading SHIELD. He has some fantastic ideas (no pun intended) but he just takes too long to piece all his story plots together. I personally think if his books were out more regularly, say weekly, than it woudnt be so bad, atleast the story will be moving at a much more interesting pace. it sometimes feels as if he is writing for a television series.
Nowadays i find myself avoiding the top superhero books as much as possible. I have practically stopped reading DC books because of the whole blackest night, brightest day bullshit. the only DC books i read is wonderwoman and powergirl, at least these two books dont heavily rely on the DC continuity crapfest. i used to follow REBELS, but i got discouraged with it when they brought in the blackest night crossover.
I really hate Crossovers, For example one of my favourite books that im reading right now is thunderbolts. but according to the marvel solicitations, the next 2 issues are going to be Shadowland crossovers. That really pisses me off. its really difficult for a writer to change the entire story plot of his book, just to fit in with some other writers crapass story. I dont really care much about shadowland or daredevil, why cant i just get my jeff parker thunderbolts story.
This was the same in x factor, when the whole second coming bullshit invaded peter david’s story flow. Those 2 or 3 second coming issues of x factor were really bad, they dint feel like the xfactor that i usually read.
I think to really pick out a good storytelling comic book, is by evaluating your reaction after you just finished reading it.
Bendis books- My eyes roll up so high that they actually rotate back around to admire the good artwork.
Millar books- i end up throwing the comic book out the window.
Loeb books- makes me cry thinking about the future of comic books
Parker books- makes me happy and i just end up reading the book all over again
Hickman books- makes me confused, but also leaves me with a sensation of wanting more, but still confused.
JMS books- makes me appreciate the art of good pacing in a story
Warren Ellis- makes me laugh out loud and i end up just loving the characters in his story.
Geoff Johns- ……………………….?
Morrison- Not sure whether to like it or despise it.
you should check out mike migola and john arcudi. both are amazing writers.
mignola does hellboy(been going awesome since 1994)
and arcudi writes the spin off to hellboy, BPRD(which surpasses hellboy in every way now. its awesome)
both dont get enough credit ithink. they are wrapping up these major storylines that have been building for years now. i honestly think they could be the best comics out now. them and their spin offs like lobster johnson, baltimore, witchfinder.
mignola and arcudi are awesome…i have almost all their books.
Hehehe… I’m gonna write out my reactions to comic book writers:
Bendis: Causes me to fall asleep in most cases
Millar: Causes me to throw his book on the floor
Quesada: Wow, this man really doesn’t give a damn does he?
Hickman: My brain hurts… (not a bad thing at all)
Parker: Wow! This guy can write a comic book!
Kirkman: Wow! This guy can write a comic book!
Loeb: Wow! This guy can write a- oh wait no he can’t. Never mind.
Johns: That was awesome! (OR) That was crap!
Ellis: This guy is INSANE-LY good at writing a comic book. And flat out insane as well
Fraction: (reads IIM) Man, this guy can write characters really well! (reads Uncanny) WTF is this crap?
JMS: MY level of respect rises for the man each time I read one of his books.
Slott: This generation’s Stan Lee
Dan Slott – Brings me back to the stories I read as a kid.
@ Nin. J: Will this blog accept a vid from Myspace?
No. Just youtube. You can post a link here to the mypace video though.
in grim hunt i did not understand what spiderman did to kravens wifes face. he touched it, and left a bloody gory palm print burned into it…. he can so that now? he has the burning touch of man thing?
Better that burning touch, than that burning feeling in the bathroom 🙂
Spiderman used his power to cling to walls to pull part of her face off. Other folk here and other sites think this was out of character for Spiderman. I mostly agree. He basically used his power not to restrain her or fight her, but to mutilate her face. Even guys like Logan or the Punisher who kill bad guys don’t go this far.
My vid contribution to this thread
Off to pt2 of my final comics purchases
FRINGE got me back that god awful musical episode drove me away but i finally watched the last 3 episodes of the season a couple of weeks ago and they got me back very excited about the new season
very nice guest spot by martha plimpton btw
what do the red head appreciation warriors around here think of olivia with red hair? its like they know deemar and j are watching.
i too cant wait for the new season….its the only show right now on tv that keeps my interest. im really disappointed with true blood season 3.
And YES olivia looks hot as a red head
Anna Torv is a natural redhead I believe, so that works out well. Torv was also the model and voice for the main character in the Heavenly Sword PS3 game…who was also a redhead.
Glad to see you got back to Fringe, Kuru. Those lost couple of episodes were excellent as was the cliffhanger ending.
after being away from the show a few months i noticed a big difference in olivia’s characterization she really much more expressive not so much much the strong silent protagonist she started out as
Actually, this is Elliott’s theme.
never heard of this show from nbc i wonder if it will get on the air
Not what I expected
which was good
It is going to be on the air for the new season.
Marvel Comics and Brian K. Vaughn originally called this “The Hood”.
Notice the rip-off?
Wow, that looked really lame.
I’m not sold. This looks lameee.I was looking for a spin-off of Smallville, “Green Arrow”. Bastards couldn’t make that happen?!
crank up the speed! How about in 36 seconds. But thats my taste cause I even like 180 bpm’s 😛
Hi, I have a question. I was in a major book store chain earlier and read Spiderman 639. I admit it, I was curious as to what explanation they would give for not getting married. Now maybe this was dealt with somewhere and I missed cuz I don’t read Spidey regularly anymore,but in this story they mention the unmasking. I guess OMD Mesphisto made everyone forget his identity. My question is…what does Pete think happened now? Is he like, “I unmasked on world wide TV, what a stroke of lucky no one saw my face”?
It was revealed in the last issue (sort of) that Doctor Strange is the one responsible for making people forget that Pete is Spidey.
Thank’s for the info. However, that reminds me of something else…in House of M when the heroes find out what happened, Pete asked Dr Strange to put a spell on him so Pete would forget the false happy life and Doc said something like “My magic doesn’t work like that.” So he CAN’T make one guy forget something, but he CAN make millions of people forget something?
I wanted to say something about Doc being a a deux ex machina, but I’m not sure it even makes sense here.
He’s always been one. That was his entire Shtick in the 80’s. He took down Galactus with ONE spell. Entire space faring civilizations have been destroyed by this guy and he uses “Images of Ikon” and Galactus’s mind shuts down.
Well, in the last issue of Amazing Pete goes to Strange and asks him to make people forget. Strange said he “needs to think about it” and that’s kinda how the issues ends. So, Strange hasn’t actually done anything…yet. I guess it is possible that something else causes people to forget Spidey’s indentity. I’ll let you know what happens in he next issue.
what upcoming comic culture tv shows should we be on the look out for? anything you are excited about?
The only new show I am looking forward to is Walking Dead. Other that that I will just be watching the same shows I normally do.
So you’ll be watching:
Walking Dead, Pawn Stars, Swamp Men, American Idol and Drop Dead Diva?
I sure will be!
Tv ill be checking out
The event nbc though I got a feeling it will turn out like many of these high concept theme shows start out great then start treading water till the season cliff hanger
No ordinary family abc just saw it up against glee in its time slot see it while you can not long for this world
Undercovers nbc the beautiful tish jones from dr who comes to American tv that alone will get me to tune in
Nikkita cw worth a look
I was thinking of watching chase on nbc but the prieview left me flat
Blue bloods cbs
The only shows I could give a shit about at the moment are Mad Men and Warehouse 13
Ordinary Family had a GREAT PILOT script.
Whether they fucked it up or not– can’t tell you.
@Jose: You posted a video about that “CATHERINE” anime, by Atlus, do you know when its coming out? I couldn’t find a release date…
It’s a video game and the release date I saw for it (in Japan) is Winter 2010.
Damn… If its a video game, we’ll never get it soon.
i have to say if you are on date with woman and you ask her about her dreams and she and responds she dreams about killing someone you excuse yourself to the bathroom then run like hell
We have a new comic book publisher in the Netherlands; Nona Arte.
Their italian roots are with Panini Comics that had the Marvel license.
Here is the line-up for 2010/2011
Marvel Zombies by Kirkman
Kraven’s Last Hunt
Avengers dissasembled & New Avengers by the Bendis
Violent Cases by Gaiman
Daredevil: Born Again
Punisher: Welcome Back Frank
(Bone, Sin City, Walking Dead, Y The Last Man are titles that are currently being published by other publishers in the NL)
The number of US Comics translated to dutch has been very little the last 10 years. Amazing Spider-Man got cancelled last year after 30 or so years!
But its not all that is bad. There have been 1000’s of titles translated over the years.
Me I always buy the original US Comics.(I got a couple of translated comics. Thats how it started for me).
Anyway, I think the extra addition of superhero comics to the netherlands is a very good thing. I do think Nona Arte is a bit in Cloud 9 for bringing in Bendis Avengers. Lets hope the dutch are sane enough to stick with Invincible.
Oops..I just finished Avengers 4 and I mildly enjoyed it… the to be continued came too soon for me..uhh..its a $4 book! (I drop this series at issue 6: Red Hulk joins the Avengers in 7? 4 Real?)
Just finished watching the first 8 episodes of Highschool of the dead and I have to say it was awesome! It combines everything I love about anime and zombie films into one and I highly reccomend it to everyone. Also thank you Jose for telling me about this awesome series. 🙂
Did you see the uncensored episodes?
thers uncensored episodes?
Did the episodes you watch white out/cover up stuff like pantsu and cleavage? Especially in the episode where they were in the apartment.
yeah they covered up in the apartment.
There are uncensored versions. It airs in Japan on two different nights. The first night the show is shown on a network channel and is censored. Two nights later they replay it on a cable station and show it uncensored.
There was no censoring of the first 3 episodes. From episode 4 on there has been more and more censoring going on. Epcially in Epidode 7.
okay so do they censor just cleavage or do they also censor the violence?
They DO censor some of the violence, yes. Not as much as the other stuff though.
okay thanks for telling me.
actually my mistake I did see the uncensored episodes.
Where do you get your uncensored episodes from?
I am at work right now but if you want me to I can email you the link later when I get home at the email adress you provided the blog. There is some explanation I will have to give also on how to know which are the uncensored episodes. Is that cool?
J check your inbox
Asap read carefully and consult E!
I am at work. Whatever’s in there is going to have to wait till I get home later tonight. E should be home from woek in a couple of hours. If you need answer to something quickly he would be the one to talk to.
No rush, read it later tonight.
EVERYONE”s talking about this show man. I guess I gotta watch it now.
Even tho I am more of a 90’s guy.
I’m curious as to where people watch their animes other than downloading of course. I usually watch mine on goodanime.net, but sometime the quality isn’t as good as when I download.
I am about half way through the final volume of The Invisibles, while concurrently reading Slaughterhouse-Five. You wouldn’t believe the dreams i’ve been having lately, i think my mind is broken…
in green lantern did larfrez write a letter to santa?
yeah he did.
and it was fucking awesome.
that is absolutely brilliant
What a day…5 mo’ days till MACHETE!
Awesome I can not wait for machete! Ive been waiting since I saw the fak trailer on Planet Terror.
“I’m the new gardener.”
the new gardener who 66 freaking years old i still cant believe that
Did I read it? Apparently, Bendis will be doing a variant cover for Scarlet #3.
edit: Did I read it wright?
Edit: Did I read it right?
Hurmmm..we forgot something.
It’s like baby sitting, I feel unloved.
Some one is dragging ass.
It’s up D.
Thanks you put up one of my favorite funnies I drew, even better.
Good start to La Liga today, Barca win and Real Madrid only drew haha
Hendricks was robbed!!!
Is it me or is MMA slowing becoming as exploitive and full of gimmicks like rasslin?
Are you referring to the Boxing vs UFC that occurred yesterday. I think that there has always been a little spectacle not only in UFC, wrestling, but in all American Pro sports.
Yeah I agree, but what’s next?
Is Dennis Rodman and Jose Cansesco gonna be fighting Spider Silva next?
Not so much Rodman but I heard that Shaq wants to do a fight with some Chinese kich-boxing who is over 7 feet tall.
Man it’s really hard to type and watch the Emmy’s
are you referring to the big chinese mma guy who fought a midget?
I guess if your over 7 feet tall very ones a midget.
Emmys? man Rubicon is on!
Fuck, I should watch that show, but I wanted to see if Conan would win for anything.
He’s gonna bring “Shaq-fu” to the mainstream.
he said that would be his one and only fight.
Yeah especially if he takes a beating
Jose!!! i just started reading Gantz!!! i recalled you suggesting it all the time and my bud brought a couple of the books over the other day. it was pure destiny! anyway, went through vol 1 and 2 in super speed and i want more!!! my roomie is reading it as we speak too. i can`t find any avi files for the animated series though…think you can help a brotha out?
either way, thanks a lot for hammering this on the CCW vids! this will be the second manga i ever read (first being Battle Royale).
Gantz is great. If there’s ANY possible complaint, its that its a often a short read (for me) since a lot of the story is visual. I can’t imagine how beautiful it’d be in full comic length rather than reader’s-digest size…
ya i def prefer the manga. it`s more detailed and the visuals are more coherent. i just watched a couple of random episodes and the girls voice is like hammers on my brain. and the subtitles kind of ruined Gantz` charm. still, me likey.
Readin’ Doomwar right now!!! I FINALLY found most of the issues I was missing except #2, but I figured I’d skip #2 ’cause I’m tired of waiting to read Doomwar.
I have no idea why people hated this book. I cannot think of one GOOD reason why people hated it. I’m loving it. Maberry really uses the characters in situations that make sense for them. I cannot tell you how I’m loving how Maberry is writing Dr.Doom. Doom is my favorite American comic book villain and it is SO refreshing to see a villain, especially Doom, whose motives make sense and are not cliched. I give Doomwar TWO THUMBS UP!
Hey that Big Bang Theory guy won an Emmy!
Now we can see him do more stereotypical “comic book” moments, since all nerds are scientists, up-tight, extremely high maintenance and straight up annoying! 🙂
Big Bang Theory is fucking horrible. That show sucks donkey balls. Seriously.
CBS is the devil!
I like CSI and Cold Case. Oh how I LOVE Cold Case. I want to have Kathryn Morris’ babies.
Oooh frontal butt crack.
I mean boobies
Other than David Caruso making me laugh at his self serious over acting CBS ain’t got nothing to offer.
Leverage on TNT top notch
Good thing you don’t live out here. We’d be banging the same women.
Don’t you DARE go there Deemar. 😉
*Hands up innocently*
Watching “Let the Right One In”. 🙂
the last good vampire movie ever.
Such a beautiful film. Like watching a poem put to film. It reminds me of classic horror, something I very much digg.
Easily one of my favorite vampire or horror flicks.
The remake looks like shit.
I’ve got it. Just need time to watch it.
I have made some DEFINITE NEW DECISIONS concerning my Swear All You Like Blog… I’m gonna leave all the HYPE BULLSHIT to the CBR, Entertainment Weekly, etc. etc websites.
It’s back to basics. Only took me 14 days to see the light. If only I had been that quick with my last GF:
There will be two, that’s right 2 Batman’s! Dick will be Batman, Bruce will be Batman, I have to say, I didn’t see this coming but it is a really good idea.
wow that’ll be interesting
happy batman pissed off batman which one would i rather have come to my 5 year old cousin’s birthday party.
and really you didn’t see this coming it was either that or bruce wasn’t going to be batman.
i think i’ll see about picking up batman and robin soon.
will bruce have the yellow circle or will dick. i think it should be dick as he’s a younger more innocent batman
Bruce has the yellow……I just figured they wouldn’t copy Captain America, I thought the editors at dc would only let there be one Batman.
i want to see how this pans out beacause at some point someone will do a storyline where there’s only one batman. but who will it be
and will dick go off and create a new identity or go back to nightwing.
will bruce just retire and become like he is in batman beyond just talking to dick and damien and doing research etc.
Personally I kind of hope that Dick goes off and becomes Nightwing again, though I know it’s a bit boring to go that route.
i thought red robin was the new nightwing
I love this. Story-wise I was expecting some angsty inner struggle from Bruce as to whether or not to put on the cowl again. And I’m sure there will be a little bit of that, but this is very exciting news.
I’m Batman nerding out right now.
Why can’t Bruce Wayne just be the new head of SHIELD while Dick continues to be Batman?
LOL! ‘Cept Bruce already was head of SHIELD! Remember Amalgam? http://www.amazon.com/Bruce-Wayne-Agent-S-H-I-E-L-D-Amalgam/dp/B000ILKBT6/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1283210419&sr=1-1
What marvel should do in response is have Misty Knight gain a few pounds and head T-Bolt so that book can be more like Suicide Squad.
Ha! I do remember that Amalgam…and I have been trying to forget about it ever since it came out.
@ Nin J; but if Bruce becomes director of Shield, Steve would have to abdicate his throne…Leaving Steve to become the boss of Checkmate!
U know Quesada and Didio are not gonna play nice
Haha seriously, I never thought I’d see the day where DC copied a Marvel story…
Check out this t-shirt, it is only on sale for today, I bought one.
That is pretty awesome.
Amazon’s Big Wii Video Game Deal of the Day (there will be several others) is the Tony Hawk: Ride Skateboard Bundle for Wii, Xbox and PS3.
