Jose, would you happen to know how Raiden became the cyborg he is in MSG4 (have you played it)? Is it revealed in that game or does in happen in MGS2 (a game I have yet to play)?
They explained it a little in MGS4. The new Metal Gear: Rising game that comes out next year tells the story of what actually happened to Raiden and how he rescued Sunny from the Patriots.
Rising will take place between MGS2 and MGS4.
What’s everybody up to tonight? Me I’m just surfing the interwebs on my phone and finishing of unread volumes of manga and thining down my stack of unread comic books.
Just watching some prank call videos on youtube, and failblog videos.
more japanese wacky goodness
That is kinda badass.
Where can I find it?
Shameless self promotion http://edward2962-welluh.blogspot.com/ tell me how bad I fail at public speaking
So, I’ve made a decision as a comic collector that I’m basically going to purchase comics based on the quality of the artwork alone. Fuck the story and dialouge! This is a visual medium, after all. That means Green Lantern is back on the pull list, and I’m ready to drop Wonder Woman for the first time in years if Don Kramer can’t get his act together and finish an issue without help.
Insanity! Man art & written word go hand in hand.
reconsider, no need encouraging the Tony Daniels of the world
I hate Tony Daniels, so no worries there. Although Teen Titans #88 may have my name on it at the end of the month.
so you’re going to start getting avengers even though bendis is shit but romita’s artwork is good this is insane i can’t begin to understand this logic you have dear God that’s a mad idea. But of course it’s your choice i think it’s crazy but it’s your choice.
I don’t buy Marvel comics, so Avengers and Hulk and shit like that is out. I may be insane, but I’m not batshit crazy.
your just screw loose crazy 😉
That’s what my wife says.
guess you’ll be picking up Batwoman 0 then next month since JH Williams is writing and drawing it.
Morlock, Are you really gonna do that… Or are you just trying to spark a discussion?:-P
I think we know the answer. heh
dammit he got me curses foiled again!
Well it got the thread moving
Yup. I’m really doing this. (Although if it sparks a discussion, that’s fine too.)
This was my pull list yesterday:
Batman Oddessy #4
Freedom Fighters #1
Batman: Hidden Treasures
Superman: Secret Origins #6
DC Legacies #4
I’m basically sticking with DC mainstream books for now. Hey, at least I didn’t buy Justice League.
If I had too follow art only, I’d buy nothing but Marvel.
DC art wise ain’t got nothing on Marvel, I’m sorry Marvel my be the Evil Empire, but they got a murders row of artists. Plus they have a good track record of finding new artists.
You’re right, Marvel’s artists are better overall. But I’m a converted DC fanboy at this point. Plus Gary Frank, Nicola Scott, Doug Manke, and J.H. Williams are nothing to sneeze at, my friend.
I feel the same with SUPERIOR, Its Mark, so bad. But Its Leinil, so Maybe Good…….
Mike, we each have to decide what’s the best use of our dollars, especially in this economy. I tried Invincible, for example, but Ryan Ottley just wasn’t doing it for me, so I dropped it despite the fairly strong story by Kirkman. It also depends on what kind of art you like to see in a comic. I lean towards the Finch/Lee/Benes stylized superhero stuff, although I’ve grown to appreciate Amanda Connor too. Lastly, I really like the DC universe, so until Bendis or Millar switch sides, I don’t have to worry about supporting writers who most of us here feel are bringing down the storytelling medium.
Of course, there is still Geoff Johns to contend with….
So I need a new game for my XBOX. My birthday is next week and I know I’m getting Dead Rising II but Id like to get another game for when I get done with that one. Here’s what I was thinking about getting after Dead Rising II:
Preordering “Call of Duty: Black Ops”
Spiderman Shattered Dimensions
Preordering Star Wars The Force Unleashed II
And no an option isn’t getting a PS3 Jose lol 😛
Looks like you got the bases covered.
See that trailer for the Cap’n America game?
Yeah. It looks pretty cool so far.
Nick Spencer and Bernard Chang on Supergirl starting in January? I’m in but for the love of Kirby redesign that fucking terrible costume.
Oh no! Not only has DC ruined Batgirl for me with that terrible artist they are bringing on in December, but now they are changing the whole bloody team on Supergirl. Man my two consistently favourite books are getting fubared. I really like what Sterling was doing with Supergirl. I’m hoping this new team keeps the spirit of the book close to what he’s done.
I want Cassandra Cain back as Batgirl, point blank period.
Let Spoiler be spoiler
No way, Stephanie is much more interesting the Cain ever was. Next to Barbara Steph is my favourite hands down.
We’ll agree to disagree.
Steph don’t do a thing for me. Cassandra had a nice hook and skill set, cool background (Guess who her mama is!?) and the best costume next to the Big Bat himself.
Looks like I jumped the ggun on Supergirl the art looks terriifc. Now I’ll just have to wait to see what happens with the writing. Batgirl still pisses me off though grrr
That’s pretty funny. The one thing that has stopped me from buying Batgirl was the terrible art. Now that Dustin Nguyen will be the new artist I will start buying it. I like his stuff.
I just think it really doesn’t fit Batgirl at all. The book is light and fun and his art is a little too dark for it.
He can to light and fun. Did you ever see his DC “super deformed” whacky races 2 page spread ealier this year? It was quite awesome.
The wacky races and lil’ Gotham stuff is pretty cute. On that I’ll totally agree. He does covers pretty well also but his interior art is nothing short of horrible to me. Way too dark like constantanius said.
Just a personal opinion
Well, I’ll buy Batgirl and love the art enough for the both of us. 😛
that works lol
I’m going to have to agree with you constantanius I’m really loving Stephanie as Batgirl and Nguyen is going to make it so shitty *sigh*
I like the costume.
It’s distinct enough from Supes.
That current Supergirl “costume” is one of the worst in the history of comics.
I have to agree with Deemar on this one I really like her costume. I think the worst would have to be the late 60’s depowered Wonder Woman.
I said it was one of the worst, not THE worst. But yes, That WW one would be in there too.
See, I don’t have a problem with the jumpsuit. I think it was at least an inventive design. The worst WW costume for me would be the biker getup she wore around WW #100. Remember, that shitty spandex with the white stars? Ugh.
I remember that unfortunetly. That one WAS worse than the jumpsuit.
Yeesh the biker look, yeah that was a george Perez design IRC.
Perez was responsible for that?! For shame!
The white jumpsuit? Yeah it was a generic look, but not terrible. Just not WW.
Lemme guess the skirt?
The costume is fine, but just as an excercise what would you like to see SG wearing?
I liked the costume from the movie.
Ah..I see oldschool.
We not that far apart, but J its pretty much the same costume.
No, it’s really not.
Yes it really is.
Add yellow piping and wahla same costume!
We will have to just agree to disagree.
Even thought I’m right 😉
How bout the costume she wore during COIE…red headband and all!
I could do without the redband. 🙂
Oh the 80s!
Speaking of headbands Gambit needs a overhaul stat.
This looks like it should be interesting. Still, I’m a little upset that Sterling Gates is off Supergirl. Despite being connected to the New Krypton storyline, I thought Gates did a great job writing the book. Interested to see what he does next.
Of course, I also liked the Astros uniforms from the 80’s, so my fashion sense may not make alot of sense.
Ha ha, I liked those uniforms too Morlock! So 80’s.
If you haven’t checked it out– I deconstruct DC and Marvel’s price pull back… Giving a generous note of credit to the efforts of one Mr. Melendez:
Is it just me or does anyone else think the re-design of Howard the Duck is awful?
Yeah I saw that on the shelf at my LCS. Not great that’s for sure.
I kinda dig it.
It looks very….sketchy.
Whatever the design, it’s time for some duck.
Concerning Howard the Duck, I dunno…the look made me remember an old interview with Steve Gerber about the threatened Disney lawsuit over Howard where he mentioned at the time some Disney artists drew proposed re-designs for Howard. In Steve’s mind they deliberately drew visually un-appealing just to screw with Marvel.
It’s all subjective of course, but I prefer either the Civil War look from a couple years ago or classic 70’s/80’s Howard.
anyone getting the force unleashed 2 at the end of the month. its looking pretty good
HANDS OFF! MINE! MINE! MINE!
Thanks for posting this Micah.
Sort of related to this subject was this article I saw on bleeding cool earlier
Interesting article. If DC really wanted to shake things up, they should let Wonder Woman out of the closet. It’s well known and pretty much excepted by most fans that she is bisexual.
I agree with this statement.
I think Wonder Woman would be a lesbian, she’s an Amazonian. It’s just how she’d be. I mean, she had Steve Trevor back in the day but nowadays she is a ladies lady. I don’t want to see it become a huge part of her story, but I’d like it to be there.
Just my two cents.
I read somewhere that one of Gail Simone’s long term plans was to develop a romantic relationship between Hyppolyta and Phillipus down the line. She would present Phillipus with one of those wrist band things that Diana gave Nemesis and say “3000 years is long enough” or something like that. I think that would have been more interesting than what I read in issue #603 at least.
Yeah that won’t float with “Middle America”
It think she would be lez/bi too, but they put WW on lunchboxes and blankets so it ain’t happening.
Very true, but I saw that Batwoman is returning in November at least.
I keep forgetting JH is returning with BW.
I’m done for it, hope to god he can write at Greg Rucka’s level.
Hey guys! I can read manga on my phone! And it’s free! Reading Black Lagoon right now. 🙂 I can also read 278(something like that) chapters of Gantz 🙂 Good reading times are ahead! This won’t stop me from buying the actual volumes though. Digital comics may be cool, but it will never beat holding the book in your hands.
quick nycc report
its seems this free hugs thing is big with cosplayers i saw about 12 girls and 2 guys today with free hug signs
also gothic lotitas were running rampart
NYCC was pretty fun, other than the hard time walking.
DC and Marvel were both pretty uneventful. Robinson on Hawkman? Boo to that.
I got to talk to a gal who was dressed as Wonder Woman and looked 100% the part. She spoke to me in character and told me how hard life is fighting crime and getting taken seriously by fanboys.
All in all fun Saturday!
Ah, I missed it this year too. Hope everyone who went had a good time (and got some sweet deals on GNs).
I”M DRUNK! and its my birthday (10/10/10) which means im the Antichrist plus 444
Let’s paint the interwebs red!
Happy afterlife Beezle Bub Jr!
Happy B-day. Do something evil (but not too evil) 🙂
Lets leave bags o poop at Dan Buckley’s door
i just set it on fire
We could teepee Joe Quesada’s house and throw rotten eggs in the mix.
we can use TP that’s been uh..used?
Joe Quesada’s house after we’ve teepeed it= how myself and many other fans felt after OMIT.
Its a deep wound, but hey Joey Q gots egg on his face via DC so karma is a bitch.
im down, just give me the address. 🙂
We got a 3rd taker!
I’m buying Charmin it flys higher when tossed
Speaking from experiance there Dee? 🙂
We could flip him off too, but see he has too much raw, rotten egg on hi face so he won’t see! 🙂
or he is too busy too notice us because he is doing this.
Happy B-Day, Smokey.
Happy Birthday Smokey! Hope you are having a great day!
happy bday smokey
I’m not afraid to say I am pissy, mutha fuckin tanked and drunk.
If I stand up too fast it’s like I’m in a Ditko Dr.Strange comic
glad to know im in good company then 🙂
I’ll be your AA sponsor
I’d laugh out loud at that line if the kid wasn’t sleeping next to me, Deemar.
New post. More reviews. I wrestle with the written word. http://ed2962.wordpress.com/2010/10/10/non-sequitur-3-5-your-what-hurts/
Even though around here we know newsarama sucks, I am happy they have a live feed of NYCCC, It’s fun the watch. I just saw a interview with Dan Slott and it sounds like he doesn’t like the way spidy and black cat interact together (like others here on the blog) and is getting rid of her in spidy’s life.
Yeah but being there man, kinda sucked. lol, it was just so crowded, and was easy to get tiring, BUT was still more fun than anything!
Ya, it looked very busy, but I would have loved to be there. What was some of the cool things at this con: any really cool cos players, any great deals on comics, any sketches; meet any of your favorite creators?
aaand I just looked below and saw who you met there.
Yeah it was great, but man, that crowd really made it hard to get thru. Like, I saw Lenil Yu and he was probably 20 feet away and it took at least 4 minutes to get to him, hah.
But yeah, costumes were wild! I will try to post them for the CCW nation to see, I mite on Twitter…
I’ve returned from NYCC and am happy to have meet Cliff Chiang, JMS, and Lenil Yu 🙂
ALSO the Sushi Typhoon panel was epic, more sexy gore films on there way!
If you gots inside scoop,news, spill it!
Has anyone seen the new Hell’s Kitchen yet? I dont know about you, but I think this season probably has the worst chefs, but I still think it is fun to watch.
Yes I am watching the new season of HK.As far as entertainment its one of the best seasons yet. As far as the chefs…well the video speaks for itself… I must admit that I did like watching Ramsay yell at Raj all the time. It seems like Fox has gone out of there way to get crap cooks on the show… you can almost tell that they’re trying to boost viewers so they can get more viewers… still a good show though.
