WTF she has King Ghidorah as her ring tone?
That’s because she is a bad ass.
Is Cutie Honey like a parody of Super Sentai or something because im loving it. 🙂
No. It’s a live action version of the manga and anime from the 70’s. Hideaki Anno directed this movie.
Holy shit I didnt know Hideki Anno wrote and directed this. First for me there was Neon Genesis Evangelion, then Gunbuster and now Cutie Honey. AWESOME!!! 🙂
Oh..I am going to watch this! Thanks for sharing J.
Shorty was cute!
Puma Lady fugly.
I could take Trinity.
Ahhhhh, shit. Darkplace is back on Adult Swim. Nice.
One of my favorite Japanese songs in any anime. I was fucking pissed that they didnt include this song in the new movies. 😦
Another reason to protest the new movies?
One of my all time favorite movies.
Man, I really gotta say I thought that Scarlet comic was a Black Widow limited series. I know, when I say it out loud it seems silly, but when the title was just something on the periphery of my awareness it was just like I wrote it off. It’s called Scarlet so why I thought “Black Widow” I’ll never know. Once the second issue came out I gave it th’ ol’ college try. Cool story bro.
Two things recently came to my attention that blew my mind. Batman Odyssey, the new Neal Adams Batman book which has 3 issues now. AND, Marvelman Family’s Finest.
Both those books stink to high heaven. The Adams Batman thing is just like if Neal Adams was one of the Image co-founders and had a Batman facsimile. Marvelman Family is just a scalp-scratcher at it’s sheer existence.
“Hey, we just got Marvelman, let’s rerelease all the old z-rate silver age shit that nobody wants!”
The only thing anybody wants out of Marvel owning Marvelman is a nice all-encompassing hardcover with all the GOOD Marvelman shit. Then just leave the goddamn character alone. Maybe a new 4 issue series that can be easily ignored.
I’d also like to say that The Proposition is a great damn Western. It’s one of those Australian Westerns. So if that term get’s your vibrissae twitchin’, yer in fer a good’un.
AND how ’bout the last ten minutes on the new Sons of Anarchy? Sheeit. Of course if you haven’t already watched every episode this wasn’t going to hook you completely. If you have been following, this ruled your ass.
New Batman & Robin was half decent. Nothing worth raving about. It had a Chris Sims approved “Batman kicks a pig-man with a viral narcotic in the face” moment. Not a wash.
I’m fixing to dip into this final issue of Last Days of American Crime. Thus far I’m not crazy about it.
Stumptown ended like a week ago. I never really enjoyed it. I love Rucka but this did not hook me. Too short, too intermittent.
AND I’m probably way behind the curve but Ex Machina ended and I couldn’t’ve given less of a shit. I understood the ending but it was just kind of soggy. I could do some sort of sarcastic thing but I don’t want to spoil it for folks who haven’t read every issue yet. Needless to say, if you are at issue 30, don’t get too excited.
“Tell Randy Gonzales…I’m coming!”
“Cats and Dogs… Living Together!”
for those that missed it; the pre-game to the event of a lifetime:
TERROR BENEATH THE TWITTER-DOME: the pre- event
your hosts; Noah Tahl and Hu Givzah Zhit
Noah: Well Hu, lets talk to our 1st celeb. who do you havve with you, Hu?
Hu:: I have the referee of the event, one Mr. Deemar. Now deemar…I know you’re suppose to be impartial, but do you….
Referee Deemar: Yeah yeah.Impatiality my @$$. Everybody knows e is gonna get creamed….um let it show for the record that my last comment was not sexual in nature!
Hu: Thank you Deemar? Let’s see who Noah’s rounded up. Noah?
Noah: I’m over by the consession stand Hu, where I’m with what so many have called the allibaster hued DonKing. I’m here with promoter and pitchman Insideman to get his take on this festive evening. So Insideman, you,re…
Insideman: Yada yada yada c’mon time is money and I don’t have all day, besides I’ve gotta convince Stamps and Variant Girl to be the round gals. I bought ’em thon….I mean tastefully designed bathing suits for the occassion
(A face from the crowd…believed to be Ironmuskrat yells out “yeah good luck with that..they’re so gonna kick your ass”)
Insideman: Anyway, I hope that Nin J can drag this out for the entire 12 rounds, after all the longer the tv sets stay on…more revenue..more revenurevenue MORE REVENUE!
Noah:: So you believe that Jose will…
Insideman: No no, it’s anybody’s fight Make sure that gets recorded
Noah: Well there you have it folks, just what some of the celebs are thinking. When we come back we’ll speak with a non meat eater to get his perspective on things as well as a person of the cloth to see whether his spiritual beliefs will have him protest this fight or somehoe promoteit, but 1st a word from one of our sonsors; the wwe
“revenuerevenue MORE REVENUE!”
I’m gonna STEAL that and SCREAM it at my new big meeting. Just out of the blue.
Nah, that’s not true… I’ll give you credit.
LMAO! Phil, perfecto
You got me dead to rights and I didn’t know Insideman was Jewish.
That is making me slightly emotional.
Hey! I just FINALLY got around to watching “Let the Right One In” on Blu Ray.
Want to know which scenes in the original WILL NOT be in the US Remake?
And this isn’t a “Hey Look at me statement” but the second she touched the OLD GUY’S FACE about (what?) 10 -15 minutes in… I knew EXACTLY what was going to happen for the REST of the movie.
Supremely irritating that the Blu Ray automatically started on the ENGLISH DUB version. We ARE such cinematic cretins in the US. “Blu Ray NOT in English? Here’s let us FIX that!”
Fred and Martha’s HOUSE. Iowa.
FRED: Martha, that boy’s lips are movin’ funny! Why is that?
MARTHA: Now Fred, you know I don’t know nothin’ about no DVDs. Hell, last week I used your “Bridge Over the River Kwai” as a coaster. Remember?
FRED: Dammit! I was wonderin’ where that went to!
MARTHA: [Spit-take] Holee Shit! Did that little 12 year old girl just take off all her clothes AND her panties and get into bed with that little boy?! Call the PO-lice, Fred!
Why would she call the police? Isn’t that what happened at their last family reunion?
Oh middle America.
No. That was OK. They were cousins at the reunion.
ROFL! This is so true. Nothing good or interesting will make it into the American remake.
Joseph Michael Straczynski is an over rated hack. His new Wonder Woman stories are irredeemably boring and unimaginative. I never read the character’s books before but I sure as shit am not going to touch that trite now. His work on Brave and the Bold was more or less the same, awesome premises that turn out lame as hell. He even got the origin of Brother Power wrong. I know it’s super late to mention this but I dropped his Thor series after issue three, it was off to such an amazing start then he just shit all over it on that third issue.
JMS is bullshit and he needs to get the fuck off of Superman and Wonder Woman that way something interesting can happen. Where is my Grant Morrison Wonder Woman anyhow?
Seriously. The only thing of his I liked was Rising Stars and that’s it.
I approve this message.
OMIT: THOR that was Awesome!
i agree. i dropped this thor also. it only came out one issue every 2-3 months and was not worth the wait. i find is wonderwomen boring, sadly. his superman is taxing to read. hey lets have superman walk and fix peopls cars!
i liked the dial h for hero issue of Brave and the bold. i just wish he would get one book and really focus on it. not 3 that seem to be lacking. hell 4, whatever happened to the twelve?
guys like this write big comics. i wish mike allred would go back to dc and write/draw a comic. he could make a great doom patrol, deadman, swampthing.
Last I heard the reason why The Twelve never finished was because Chris Weston took a Hollywood gig (did storyboards for a movie) and never got back to the comics. This was late last year. Why it’s still not finished I have no idea. I did like that book quite a bit and wish they would just finish the thing already.
With all due respect, I am hearing the same criticisms about his new stuff. I am sure I will agree as I thought his Spider-man stuff could be very overwrought as well.
However, I would turn to anyone I know– even people who don’t normally like JMS’ work– and tell them to read Midnight Nation.
THAT is a FANTASTIC PIECE of comic book work… And rarely mentioned.
I heard that artists like Djurdevic find it hard to work with JMS as he tends to make last-minutes changes, resulting in the artist having to make new art, completetly ignoring the work the artist had already done.
Yeah, why isn’t Grant Morrison on Wonder Woman? That would freakinn’ rock out loud.
I liked JMS’s THOR quite a bit. His Wonder Woman is just boring and my gods, his SUPERMAN is one of the worst shit I’ve read in a while. Soooo terrible.
And we join our show already in progress; The Pre-game to Terror Beneath the TwitterDome
Hu: Well look who we have here, it’s CBallsack…and how are you faring this evening Mr. Sack?
cballsack: Any time I can get to see two living meat by products pummel one another, it’s a good day in my book.
Hu: Well who do you think will …
Cballsack Win? Was that what you were gonna ask me? I don’t care here to root anyone on. I came here to make sure that neither of the participants were wearing leather Ms. Hu
Hu: That’s Ms GivzaZhit!
Cballsack: Whatever. Ms.Hu did you know that wearing leather as a part of this thing we call vanity is destroying needlessly over
Hu: Look at that, we’re out of time, gotta send it back to Noah. — Noah who do you have with you and should I be jealous?
Noah: Yes you should Hu. Yes you should. With me right now are the femme-tastic force of the CCW nation. VariantGirl & Stamps. So ladies your significant others let the two of you out of the house to attend this event, huh?
VariantGirl: So like a man to think that we would have to be “allowed” to do anything. Listen, cro-magnon. Nobody dictates to us where we go, who we see, or how we govern ourselves.
Noah: I just meant
Stamps: Oh no you didn’t just cut her off mid-sentence. Maybe we should make you squeal like a pig. Did you see Deerhunter?
Noah: I think you mean Deliverance.
Stamps: Let’s see, you cut VG off, you’re back talking me. Lemme see what I got in my purse. Here it is
Noah: CUT TO COMMERCIAL, for the love of all that’s holy, CUT TO COMMERCIAL
This Commercial Brought to you by Hallmark
An ode to Noah
If you’ve never seen this, you gotta stay to the end
Stamps would definately lay a beat down
ha ha YES! I enjoyed my part in all this.
Why thank you Deemar, yes I would
Fuck this shit: http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2010/09/the-fifth-color-strong-enough-spider-man/
fuck that shit indeed mspot and fuck quesada
I agree Fuck Quesada and his Anti-Boner against Smoking.
and his hatred of Mary Jane.
I’m on the same page with you on both things
i never heard that awesome word before anti-boner i’ll use that forever now thanks megamanx that’s brilliant
No problem. 🙂
It’s shit on Quesad day, YABA DABA DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😛
It’s shit on Quesada day and nobody told me?!? I feel left out… 😦 Just kidding!
Ya, that was a load of horse shit.
Which one? The article or the issue?
And I would think ASM #641 would be right up your guys alley. Aside from the whole “I love you but I’m not strong enough for you” bull crap from Mary Jane, and the “I feel free and this feels like a Brand New Day(TM)” baloney from Peter, we have an issue that’s pretty much nothing but characters talking, debating, and being angst-ridden ad nauseam for pages on end that moves at the pace of a three-toed sloth, and yet ANOTHER instance of “wiki-padding” in the middle of the story–from another issue One More Day of all things–only with Quesada altering the dialogue in awkward ways. I mean, what’s not to love here? (sarcasm)
Heh, ya, both the article and issue were horse shit. And you have already pointed out all of the reasons why. 🙂
Seriously, if any comic this year was a definite contender for the “Golden Loeb” award, One Moment in Time would be it, along with Cry for Justice, The Rise of Arsenal, Batman: The Wedding Gyre, and the relaunched Ultimate Comics: Avengers series 1.
We definately need to revive the Golden Loebs
Yup. There is indeed a lot of competition this year. At this point in time I am secretly hoping that OMIT does win the Golden Loeb though.
I thought Tony Daniel had it in the bag, but Quesada fells to disappoint.
Well his dad did die of lung cancer.
yeah I know but he costently says in interviews that he doesent allow smoking because it will be a bad influence for kids and thats all fine and good… But this is the same person who lets people get ripped in half by a whiny pissy Superman knockoff (The Sentry), lets Peter Parker have sex with like 10 different girls, and allows the Red Skull throw a BABY out a window and have his henchmen gangrape the Red Wasp. So smoking is inappropriate, but I guess all the things I mentioned above are okay for kids to read.
He is a Grade A hypocrite.
Agree to the max
I miss Ben Grim with a nice big stoagie
Damn I almost forgot about that, yeah. Strangly now that I think about it the image of Grim with a cigar made him…human? I guess that’s the best word to use.
OMIT has to be the most insulting piece of crap comic I’ve ever read. Ultimatum was insulting to me, but OMIT just takes it to another level of insulting. Joe Quesada seriously must have a vendetta against Spider-Man. There is no way he can be a fan of Spidey and let all this garbage slide. Well, mission accomplished fucker Joe Quesada, you’ve taken a dump on my love for Spider-Man (he’s my favorite comic book superhero, btw). True fans of Spider-Man SHOULD NOT continue to let Quesada anal rape them anymore. I’m fed up with this crap.
I feel so sorry for Dan Slott. He has a lot of crap to clean up.
And people wonder why I’m buying more independant comics now…
I know how you feel Joe Quesada and Marvel pissed me off so much that I am down to buyng 3 Marvel books instead of like 10. Also you actually read OMIT? You have my sympathies Im glad I didnt, I just read the Wiki article on OMIT because if I paid 16 dollars for that I would be fucking pissed and I would mail those issues to Joe Quesada himself and I will write FUCK YOU! on each issue of OMIT with a sharpie. Also my hatred of Marvel started when Marvel did that promo where if you rip off 50 Blackest comics and get a shitty Deadpool siege variant. One more thing FUCK Joe Quesada, and Tom Breevort nd thier Anti-Boner for DC.
No I just read Part 1 of OMIT. I have been reading summaries of the past 3 issues of ASM. My dislike of Marvel started with that BN promo as well. I love Marvel. I grew up with just Marvel. To see them today breaks my heart.
I am a die-hard, bleed red and blue fan of Spider-Man. Looking back on what Spidey has been through the past 4-5 years is unbelieveable. I have a hard time believing Quesada and Stephen Wacker love the character like most of the fans do. If they don’t love Spidey or don’t have any respect for him then they should GTFO.
Because I had to do, or someone else would:
V brings the levity
That’s what I’m here for D, or should I call you “Don King”, lol 😛
Donkey King Kong
Hrrrmmmm, how did I know Deemar would respond to this? 🙂
Stop Inceptioning me Foo!
DON’T CALL ME A FOO YOU FOOL (LOL) 🙂
that cracked me up Venom 🙂 lol
*Pulls out of pocket a dusty Magnum Condom*
You’re welcome Stamps 😛
I dont know aboout you guys but Im definitely looking forward to this in November.
i had a geek-gasim first time i saw this reminded me of justice league unlimited and don’t know why he said BATMAN! but i am loving this
Time well spent Jim Lee
i wish this was a movie
It is it’s called Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.
that was okay i loved marl harmer as superman but the voice of batman put me off a lot and i seen the ending coming a mile away but overall good movie
sorry mark harmer
the flash is goofey in this. the guy can run at the speed of light and he cant outrun lightning?
well i guese the flash altogether doenst make sense. he could just run around and do everything ever to fix the world faster than anyone could blink…
this game looks great, the gameplay is nice looking too.
tobad its pay to play monthly:( i was hoping to be a lantern or metamorpho
my only problems is why would flash wear armor it’d only slow him down and i prefere john stewart as green lantern and where’s martian manhunter?
It’s Jim lee costumes must have useless flair, it must have zippers, stitching, pouches, belts, goggles if possible, shoulder pads and assorted weaponry, buttons, fingerless gloves, overly complicated footwear……..
and giant Batman thighs. (don’t get me wrong though I love his Bats)
You just don’t come across the phrase “giant Batman thighs” every day.
I’m a Kyle girl myself.
Kyle is my GL too
Once again we join our show; Terror Beneath the TwitterDome already in progress
Amanda: Welcome back everyone. I’m Amnanda Huugankiss and I’ll be filling in for the recently ailing NoahTahl who’s in the hospital suspended precariously 4 to 5 feet above above a hospital bed in what one could only describe as a Superman pose, although there was nothing “super” about how this “man” ended up in this state The only thing an onlooker was heard to say was Noah kept shouting WHAT ARE U PLANNING ON DOING WITH THAT FROZEN LOG OF SALAMI? Then silence, anyway back to the event. Hu who do you have with u at this time
Hu: Well Amanda, we actually have royalty in our midst. So what brings u to this event Little King Ryan?
LKR: I simply wished 2 see what the common folk found as entertainment and then I bore witness 2 the fact that two of my former subjects were going 2 verbally abuse each other I thought 2 myself, self how can I pass this upwith your inane questions and your oddly phallyc sound device that u’re thrusting into my face
Hu: Back 2 u Amanda
Amanda: Thank u Hu. Hmmm suddenly I want a chocalatty drink, but anyway as an added hi-light we have taped interviews with the two combatants and their corner men about what they exspect 2 happen from their epic encounter……………..let’s roll the clip
Amanda: So u’re the cut man for Elliot….do u think that you have your work cut out 4 u?
Ed2962: Not really, E’s a clotter Whenever he bleeds he practically seals himself up automatically I’m more concerned with his endurance He can out muscle Jose, but how long can he keep it up?
Amanda: So what u’re sayin is if he can make it the distans that he might have a cha
Ed2962: Nononononono…we all know that E is gonna get verbally murdered, our concern is 2 make sure (hope) he survives.
meanwhile…in the other training room
Hu: How do u beleve your guy will fare in this contest of wills, good sir
IronMuskrat: By all rights this match is already won b4 either opponent enters the ring, but we have 2 keep Jose away from that kinda talk.
Hu: Ah u don’t want him 2 b overconfident, right?
IM: Incorrect. We don’t want him 2 b overly overconfident. Being over confident is just in his D.N.A. He can’t help it Look Hu, U, myself, everybody in this arena and E himself knows by all rights that E doesn’t stand a chance, but it’s my job 2 keep Jose motivated ’cause even a blind squirrel can find a nut if he’s hungry enough. Just gotta keep my guy’s eyes on the prize
Hu: Thank u Mr. IronMuskrat and now
IM: Hold on a minute Dahlin”. Just so we’re clear..when I said Jose’s my guy, I don’t want u gettin’ any funny ideas about editing that soundbite 2 make me come across as anything other than hetero. U got that? I’ve killed ppl 4 less. U take care now, Ms. GivzaZhit.
Hu: um th th thanx….well b4 his predicament, Noah was able 2 procure interviews from the two combatants. Let’s roll the footage
At stately Serrano manor
Noah: Thank u 4 allowing us 2 film here in your abode, Mr. Serrano
E: No problemo Noah. Pardon me while I take a slurp from my 711 big gulp cu
Noah: So Elliot any wors for your opponent?
E: Only that I have the utmost respect 4 Jose, and that I think we’ll both enter in2 this as gentlemen and will exit the same way
Noah: Hahahahahahaha…………oh u were serious. My apologies. What do u think of your chances?
E; well I outweigh by a few pounds
Noah (surpressing laughter)
E: And some tai chi techniques that I picked up from whatever city/state/country I’ve been in should prove 2 be beneficial. I just my pull it out. ….The victory that is. It’ll shock the world!! You’ll see, you’ll all see!!!
Noah: Thank u 4…
Jose: Can we just get on with the questions. My God…I work with Elliot, I don’t need 2 hear useless hyperbole from someone else!!!!
Noah: I’m sorry, Jose. I didn’t mean…
Jose: No Noah, I’m sorry………I’m sorry that I granted u this sorry @$$ interview. Now that’s about 8 more minutes of my life I won’t get back. GOD, why me?
GOD; Well my son:
Jose: It was a rhetorical question.
Noah: Anyway, Elliot says that he has a tremendous amount iof respect 4 u. Would u care 2 reciprocate?
Jose: As for him having a tremendous amount of respect 4 me, well…as he should. As 4 reciprocating….Look I’ve been doing the heavy lifting since day 1…..all I’m gonna say is…I’m gonna savor every moment of torture that I’m gonna put him thru. If this goes past two rounds, it will be because I’m having so much fun decimating him Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve gotta catch up with my buds, J. Beam and J.W. Red…………..later
Noah: And there u have it…2 ppl, contrasting personalities, contras..
Jose: HEYYY!!! GET THE F**K OUTTA MY HOUSE, or no more Mr. NiceGuy
And that concludes the pre-game festivities The only question that remains is who will emerge the victor and who will be…well let this final commercial say it, who will be…
ok this is getting good, your ear for Jose is killer.
In honor of the new NFL season. 🙂 Any NFL fans in the CCW nation? If so who’s your favorite team?
I’m a Dolphins fan thanks to my father.
@Stamps…not really of teams per se. I tend to find a personality I like and then follow that team. Which is why I’m vibing to the Vikings. I like Favre
Consequently, I hate the Heat (although you weren’t talking about the nba) “cause I despise King Lames (not a typo)
I’m not a huge NFL fan, but I will watch games from time to time. My favorite team is the Vikings mostly because I’ve been raised in Minnesota my whole life. I’m also a Chicago Bears fan.
you cannot be a vikings and bears fan at the same time thats just crazy talk
Falcons straight up, no second favorites.
Do or Die
I miss that gadget play coach the Falcs use 2 have
The running offensive, the Falcons are by far one of the best teams to watch for pure gameplay.
the ny giants go big blue
Hey When was the last time the Bears mattered?
Oh yeah never
Why D, I’m shocked you’ve forgotten the contributions the Bears have made to the entertainment industry with the Super-Bowl Shuffle.
A day that will live in infamy
You right I wouldn’t be who i am today without the Shuffle
Minnesota. Since I was a kid. So I gotta still like ’em now.
my first post hurray for me
Welcome new guy/girl? Gooey?
TWITTER BATTLE ROYALE II!
i read scalped high lonesome the other day damn i was not ready for that
i think the people at fx must have seen that and collapsed in organismic throes of ecstasy. the first couple of pages i was like ho hum but starting from like page 3 or 4 i was hooked and had to read the whole trade threw jason arran keeps you moving switching characters and perspectives through the whole thing which is why im guessing this reads much better in trades not that it would be bad monthly, just better in big chunks. my only complaint is the art and or the coloring it can get very murky and its hard to tell the native americans from the african americans which is odd because i never have trouble with that in real life. and im not the only one i asked a few folks i knew that have read it and they agreed with me. but from now on scalped is on my trades to get list. if you liked tv shows such as the sheild, the wire and sons of anarchy i think scalped will be up your alley.
Thats good to know because I do enjoy The Wire and Sons of Anarchy.
Have you read Scalped MSpot?
I have read the first three trades. Haven’t gotten around to reading 4, 5, and 6.
You need to read 4, 5 & 6
So Jose,I remember a little while ago you said you finally got around to picking up Wilson. I wonder what did you think of it?
A bit of a mixed bag for me. I loved the art. I loved the way Clowes used a few different art styles on every page. Didn’t care for the story being broken up into one page strips. I just had very mixed feelings about it. I would not say that it was bad but at the same time I don’t know if I would recommend it to anyone.
It’s funny. I had a woman come into the shop today who bought Scott Pilgrim Vol 6. She asked for recommendations for what she should buy next. I listed a couple of things and then brought up Ghost World. I told her that I had just finished reading Wilson but that I couldn’t really recommend it and explained to her why. I told her that she should just stick to buying Ghost World and then maybe pick up Caricature or David Boring.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the art on Wilson but the overall story telling technique just didn’t do it for me.
Me loved Wilson. But I like comic strips. So to see a LATER artist adapt the format for a book was fun.
Wilson was funny. What a clueless SOB.
Elliot wants a second Bout of the CCW Tweeter BATTLE ROYALE!
He’s on now and yes he talking shit.
Hey everyone, Don King is back yallll! lol 😛
*SPOILER WARNING DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN EVANGELION!*
Now that I got the disclaimer out of the way this is one of my all time faveorite Animes along with Gundam 08th MS Team, Zeta Gundam, Gundam 0080, and Code Geass.
I know Millar is saying that Superior is his way of paying homage to Superman, but why when I hear the premise I think Shazam?
Its probably because Millar created Superior so he could tell Superman/Captain Marvel style stories while working at Marvel.
And the only reason they don’t step in is because it’s a Icon book. Because if Superman/Captain Marvel was in the Marvel U they would give him a drug habit and have tearing people limb from limb, Oh wait they already did that.
Yeah well at least the sentrys dead now. 🙂
And he better stay dead!
Or Marvel will reincarnate him as MiracleMan or some bullshit like that and ruin another great character.
Doing what they do best.
That MiracleMan will turn out to be a reincarnated Sentry is my biggest fear. And the idea that we’ll get new stories but thay won’t re-print any of the Moore or Gaiman stuff.
which baffles me because Neil Gaiman is on good terms with Marvel and even did an afterword on that Marvelman Primer they put out a few months ago, and even Alan Moore who despises Marvel doesent care if they reprint his stories as long as they give his Royalty Money to Mick Anglo the creator of Marvel Man.
I think they’re afraid folks will go, “THIS is how you should do the re-imagining of those classic archetypes!” and then realize what pandering nonsense Nemesis is.
His combo of Captain Marvel/Superman who probably drops f-bombs on every 7th panel thatb he has dialogue in.
Most likely. 🙂
what if batman was joker, what if spider-man didn’t have powers and showed up nowadays and called himself kick-ass or what if captain marvel and superman was the same person BULLSHIT MILLAR!
do something original for once create your own character don’t just blend two characters together or swap different archetypes around fuckin hell sorry i needed that
Pride of Baghdad or Y: The Last Man.
Pride of Baghdad. It’s only one book. 🙂
That’s what I tell people. I was wondering have you ever read his Escapists.
I have and i have read a little of it. It’s good but Pride of Baghdad is better.
There are 3 Escapists books. Brian K Vaughn didn’t write all 3. I picked them up because of his association with them. His was the best but all 3 SUCKED. Pretty badly.
I would suggest picking up ANYTHING else if you are looking to expand the BK Vaughn part of your library.
Deemar I was just wondering if the Transformers drawing of me is finished? If its not finished I can understand because youre probably really busy, so please respond if you got time, thanks.
I finished the pic last week, j keeps forgeting to post them.
You didn’t send me Megaman’s D. I only have the 3 you initally sent me. I will post them when I get all 5 of them.
Who I’m missing?
Checking what I drew, might be my fault
Ok..Mega and one more MSpot
Damn slipped my mind
Mega what you wanted to be? This was around the time I had to film in South Georgia.
Probably a Tank since Im pretty bulky lol.
Cool draw it after my Falcons/Steelers game :-_
Thanks D. 🙂
Yeah apologize for that Mega, got quite a lot on my plate and I need reminders.
Watching Bebop, Spike quoting Bruce Lee. Be water my friend.
Always loved that quote.
anyone ever realize how much firefly is like outlaw star. both space outlaws, federation against rebels. space pirates flying around. girl with mysterious past both cryofrozen and main plot centers around them?
captain and crew taking any job they can, bounty hunters, stealing stuff, smuggling weapons?
just weird. i still love both of them.
yeah i noticed that as well. I thoroughly enjoy both series and the space western genre in general but the similarities are very apparent. Maybe joss was a fan
This was rather sweet.
Taking a page from M Spot, here’s shameless shameless self promotion #1
and M, tell me if I got Lamont’s history wrong!
For the most part, but at first Lamont was a separate person that The Shadow would impersonate. In print The Shadow’s alter ego was ace fighter pilot Kent Allard but to keep in line with the radio and film serial versions and more streamline they dropped that in favor of the Lamont character.
The power to cloud men’s minds or the power of invisibly was the only way back then to explain to a listening audience stealthiness. No ninjas back in the 30’s and that’s I how I viewed The Shadow a 1930’s ninja.
Actually, Bill Finger’s first Batman story was taken from a old Shadow story.
No ninjas in 1930’s American pop culture just to be clear.
Ha! I didn’t think of this until just now, but that actually reminds me of 80’s Moon Knight! His real identity is a soldier, and he has alias of a millionaire and another as a blue collar worker (MK had Jake the cab driver and Shadow had Fritz the janitor,right?) Most people think of MK as marvel’s Batman, he really marvel’s SHADOW! Or he was in the 80’s, what do you think?
That is a great observation. All masked vigilantes owe their existence to a certain extent to characters like The Shadow, The Phantom, and Zorro.
little known fact, Orson Welles was the voice of Unicron in The Transformers: The Movie (1986).
An shameless self promotion #2
I live in the midwest, bring on the fatty foods and the high gravity lager!
What better time to eat such foods than now
I know I’m playing with fire, I’ll get my act together before my chest starts hurting too much. Hmm, seems I was alot healthier when I had a live in mate, but that’s another story…
Who here would spend 350 bucks on a Wolverine movie jacket?
We had a customer here special order one of those from us. I don’t think it was worth it.
The bright stripes make it look something you’d see on a traffic cop.
i think i need a flash t-shirt and a superman hoodie
i’m too busy wearing my streethawk jacket to wear any other outerwear
The questions is, Do you consider the Akira “PILL design” jacket worth the money?
It’s a nice jacket, sure why not.
Plus I’d have an excuse for randomly stabbing people.
I doubt you need any excuses.
No..no I do not.
Getting ready to top off a surprisingly good weekend by finally watching The losers and The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo.
Well you will have a good night then, just don’t expect The Losers to blow you away, go into it wanting a fun movie and you will enjoy it.
The Losers was a fun movie, but not particularly deep. Girl with The Dragon Tattoo was really good in my opinion.
Bout to digg into some Mad Men. Just watched Beautiful Girls again, that flick never gets oldd.
The movie is great. I totally agree with you, it never gets old. Whenever it is on cable I watch it.
Is it lame that I digg this song so much? They were sooo hot.
My Pull List is up at the Swear All You Like Blog:
Plus a lot of COOL CONTENT found by a Mr. Jose Melendez!
This is funny.
Fuck Family Circus.
Do you have a favorite comic strip, J?
Not anymore. I loved Calvin and Hobbes. Maybe some of the early Far Side stuff too.
i was a huge bloom county fan i have few of the books
For nostalgia, I love Classic Peanuts. I liked Hi and Lois for a long time. Anymore though, nothing sticks out.
That looks like a great article. Thanks Heck.
Not a problem. I’ve been thinking a lot about the comic strips I used to love as a kid, it seems like that art form is dying out or evolving into webcomics.
I doubt newspapers will survive the next decade.
started watching dexter season 1 on netflix oh man is this show disturbing i even cringe during the opening credits not sure im going to make it that far
It’s worth watching, Dexter was one of the best shows cable had to offer.
Plus for Sgt Dokes alone watch
Doesn’t seem too bad, seeing that DOOMWAR ended, MAYBE this will work. IDK, I don’t know what to think anything I guess…
Its good to have some hope right?
I just really hope the continuity doesn’t get totally fucked here..
Got my interest.
Don’t know the writer.
Either way more BP
