  2. Bello says:

    Blogs a little slow tonight kinda suprised no one else is on here.

  3. Bello says:

    Saw Machete today that movie was so awesome

  4. Bello says:

    The last vid you guys did was great It would be kinda cool if you guys could do an open thread sometime strictly for graphic novels.

  5. Bello says:

    Now that Ex Machina is over does anyone know if Brian K Vaughn is working on any new series I really want to get into one of his books from the beginning.

    • Jacob says:

      I dont think so. I believe most of his time is being spent in the TV/Movie world. The Runaways movie is starting up early next year too so he seems like a busy guy.

      If anyone else has information I’d love to hear it. BKV is one of my top 3 comic writers out there.

  6. Johnny Cockburn says:

    this is a bit off topic but i was wondering if anybody could recommend any good mangas? kinda grew a taste for em after reading/watching Gantz and i wants some more. the only other manga i’ve read has been battle royale. i’m looking for something along those lines, Gantz/BR. anything horror or sci fi, good pace, action, weird, plenty of gore type of stuff.

    any suggestions?

    is anyone getting spiderman shattered dimensions?

  11. Venom829 says:

    Gotta say, I like the look compared to the previous one:

  12. phil says:

    My 2 cents on JMS’ Superman; Didn’t see 700. 701, JMS was able to briefly awaken the kid inside this jaded adult and stress more on the Man and less on the Super……man what a breath of fresh air. No beheadings, no disembowelings, nobody being ripped in half….don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with a lot of that stuff…….just sayin’
    My 2 cents on JMS’ Superman 702; Decent, but the basketball scene was cliched and condecending.

    My 2 cents on Wonder Woman; While I still don’t like the new suit (myself I would’ve preferred primary colors be put on that Star Sapphire costume she had been wearing….so far everyone that I’ve mentioned this to believs that costume was too slutty….”prudes”)Anyway I’m digging this deconstruct her to reconstruct her deal that JMS has going on with her.

    Lastly but not leastly, Robert Kirkman’s Guarding The Globe. On this one I put forth a li’l audio/video dilly-o for ya….I hope a few of you peep it out.

  13. kurumais says:

    bags and boards ? does your LCS give them to you free? one shop i go to does the other doesnt

  14. Insideman says:

    I show off another EPIC SHIPPING FAIL form the USPS (and it seems, a few other culprits as well):

    Thanks to Iron Muskrat for spelling out how the US Mail System works nowadays!

  15. TheMSpot says:

    Continued from the last thread:

    Did anyone read that Our Army at War one-shot? If so what did you?

    Same question for One Month To Live.

    Also, nothing to do with comics, but some one vandalized my fucking car by drawing a cock and balls on the hood. RAGE OVER 9000!!!!

  16. If you happen to be on Twitter I am giving you the real scoop on Elliot Con 2010.


  17. GeekToMe says:

    WTF is Jose talking about. He loves truck nuts. He’s always talking about how he likes them in his mouth. What was I hearing wrong? E.

  18. GeekToMe says:

    Notice how Jose doesn’t deny liking trucker nuts in his mouth. Give him credit for being honest, at least. E.

  19. Currently reading two stories right now. One is great, the other is awful.

    Good story= Kurt Busiek’s Avenger stories. Very good. Some of the best Avengers stories ever told. Perez’s art helps a lot too.

    Awful story= Shed. The new Lizard story in ASM. DO NOT READ THIS (unless your a fan of Chris Bachalo’s art). Guess now I have to add Lizard to my list of characters Marvel has ruined for me. Lizard has NEVER been a bloodthristy lunatic. EVER. He ate his son. Who let that slide by??? I would never let that idea see the light of day. Was the editor stoned high when he read that idea? Did people like this story? (I apologize in advance to anyone here who liked it) Lizard is my favorite Spider-Man villain and this story was like the people who made this story were pissing on me and I could do nothing about it 😦 God, I can hardly wait till Dan Slott takes over ASM.

      CBD, cover your ears and eyes mommy and daddy CCW is having a tit 4 tat.

      Or your can Join in!


    • SmokeyClocks says:

      I thought the story was ok but i love Bachalo’s style so this may have shifted my opinion of the overall story to a more positive one

      • That was the only thing I liked about the story was Bachalo’s art. I’m usually not a big fan of his art, but in Shed he did a nice job on the art.

        • SmokeyClocks says:

          speaking of Bachalo, I’ve been considering picking up Steampunk and was wondering if anyone else has read this, and if they had what they thought of it. It has Joe Kelly and Bachalo which is tempting to me but i wanted to poll the audience before i bought it.

          • Deemar says:

            It’s an ok read, some of Bachalo’s best art. This was when he was changing up his style too the one he has today.

            I’d say it was the precursor to Umbrella Academy in visuals.

    • Tiger Topher says:

      Shed was shit. And yeah, the editing on that story left me scratching my head. Not only was Curt Connors drawn as having two arms at one point, but Spidey was shown to be shocked to hear the Lizard speak, when he’s had the ability to talk since his first appearance. In fact, there have only been one or two Lizard stories that I can think of in which he didn’t speak.

      • cballsack says:

        The only time I can remember him not really speaking was in McFarlane’s “Spider-Man” title.

        That’s really shocking to hear Lizard ate his own son. Jesus, Marvel is so fucked up now.

  20. Mike F says:

    I didn’t know all my CCW homies were on twitter…

  21. Guess who got a twitter account about 4 minutes ago!?!?!? ME!!!

  22. megamanx4ever says:

    currently watching Macross Do You Remember Love? and I have to say its pretty damn good so far.

    • megamanx4ever says:

      just finished watching Macross DYRL and I loved it.

      • phil says:

        My bad Mega…. I gave you props for not being lured into the mineshaft that is twitter, and what do I go ahead and do? Yep, I’m the most current Twitwit. The only good thing is that I think my stay will be very short lived.

  23. My Little Pony – A Masterpiece?

  24. Dre says:

    Hey, everyone. Is Scarlet more than 22 pages of story, or does the bsckmatter account for what would be those extra pages of story since it’s listed at 40 pages?

  25. Deemar says:

    Don’t know Dre, I’m deciding whether or not to buy it myself

  26. Deemar says:


    Where the hell is everybody?

    • SmokeyClocks says:

      well i just got done gorging on slow smoked ribs and other delectable delights

      • Deemar says:


        I had ox tail

      • phil says:

        Ah yes ribs. I remember what they taste like. Always best without the sauce. A rub. Yeah a dry rub or perhaps a marinade ya-heah that’s better… a marinade. Ribs marinaded along with some potato salad and some well chilled lemonade…man, thems were the days!

        Oh I almost forgot; the greens, oh yeah the greens with hamhocks? No. Ham shanks? Uh-uh. What you might ask? Smoked turkey wings yeahhh that’s the ticket

        Finish it off with some french vanilla ice cream and a nice hunk of sweet potato pie and you got yourself a holiday feast.

        Of course my scrambled tofu (sorry cbs) and tofurky (sorry again, sack) is good too!

    • tomstewdevine says:

      OK OK I’m up, I’m up.

  27. Deemar says:

    Fellas I’m watching my shows will return in 2 1/2 hrs

  28. megamanx4ever says:

    Just picked up Action Comics 890-892 and I love it so far, I thought the SuperBoy backup was alright. Anyway thank you Jose for reccomending another good comic.

  29. Heck says:

    Ughhh, hectic weekend over. I have the holiday off. 🙂

  30. tomstewdevine says:

    You know, I had some idea’s for “Special Episodes of CCW”, I really enjoy the show but wouldn’t it be cool to see:

    – MTV Cribs/Shelf Porn(cbr). A video of Elliot’s and Jose’s books shelves, long boxes, and toys or posters. Having them explore why they keep there collection the way they do and how they catalog there own stash of comic related shit.

    – List Episodes. Every so often throw in a top 10 list. like best single issues, or best trades, or best runs, or best art, or best writer, or best inker, ect..

    -Profile episodes. Maybe episodes that key in on one character or creator, tell us what your favorite runs involving them. and other stuff about the subject.

    These are just some idea’s does anybody else have any good ones? or do would you want to see any of my suggestions?

  31. Johnny Cockburn says:

    yo, what anime/manga is that picture from?? the P4 one with the kids. it looks like Stuff Of Legend (with the entire shadow world concepts) meets Japan emo kids.

  32. Johnny Cockburn says:

    ps 2 you say…
    is it an rpg?

  33. tomstewdevine says:

    Replace video with twitter and radio star with open thread comments.

  34. Deemar says:

    Speaking of which its been dead on here the last few days, I leave town for work comeback and the Blog is a Ghost town.

    Wassup wit dat?

  35. kurumais says:

    i have a question for those that read flash?
    how did iris allen become young again? during the wally/impulse eras she looked like she was in her late 40s early 50s. i just looked at a bit of flash she looks like she about 23.


  36. kurumais says:

    the 5 dumbest storylines in comic history?

    i dont read spidey
    i dont like grant morrison’s batman did he someone how recon an evil brother for bruce in there? who is this thomas wayne that keeps popping up? not his dad/
    i dont read xmen
    i thought knighquest was ok

    • Heck says:

      Thomas Wayne is Batman’s father. That’s not really him though. It’s an actor Doctor Hurt who posed as Wayne. This happened during RIP.

      Also, Alfred is not Bruce’s father. That was a throwaway line. Although it would be kinda interesting…
