What’s up Jose?
Nothing much Venom. I’m just about to watch a couple of French films called La Jetee and San Soleil. A friend of mine let me borrow them.
Hrm, I’m watching the office, and eating some late nite snacks.
I like the european office I like it better then the american office.
I prefer the other way around, it speaks to me, but that’s just me.
I tried watching a couple of episode and I did not find it funny at all.
Heh, I tried watching the european, and I did not find it funny in any way.
La Jette? Is that the movie that inspired 12 Monkeys or am I confused?
You are correct.
Sifl and Olly.. Man, I use to laugh my ass off watching that. I guess the creators of the original show still put out new material in Pod casts. I haven’t listen to them so I can’t say if the Podcasts are as good as the TV show.
Such a great flick.
apparently Mark Milla was offended.
Millar my bad.
1st one wasnt funny, but I LOL at the second one.
I believe Millar is just angry that he didn’t think of those ads himself. I think it’s hilarious he finds those offensive when almost everybody else finds his shite comics offensive. What a fucking wanker.
Hard to defend a guy who makes characters throw babies. REALLY hard…
I would eat this cake.
I would rather smash it into Joey Q’s face but to each his own.
If your going to smash it in his face you need to put a Peter and Mary Jane wedding topper on it beforehand, and then REALLY rub it in. That way he’ll understand what it’s like to have to read One More Day as a fan.
At CrossFit last night, one of the one minute exercises we were doing was hitting a hammer onto a large tire. I remarked I wished it was Joey Q’s head for ruining Marvel’s reputation. A few more people started hitting the tire harder.
Those were some cool cakes. The first one especially!
Just got caught up on the new season of Smallville. Not bad. I really enjoyed the inclusion of Cat Grant and the Suicide Squad. The pay off probably won’t be as epic as I’d hope, but hey, it’s a TV show on the CW…can’t expect too much.
Darkseid seems promising. It does piss me off that after 10 years Clark is still trying to learn how to fly. Tom Welling more or less owns the role of Superman though. Toss him a good script and I think he’d kick ass.
I just posted 11 Hardcover and Graphic Novel reviews. Find out which one I disliked so much that now Mr. Melendez feels COMPELLED to read it:
This is gonna be a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get Jose’s take on this piece of shit! I absolutely want to hear from everyone. Please come by.
i picked up a ton of trades at the con this weekend you would have been proud of me
What did you get Kuru? Anything from 22 title recommendation list? 🙂
the complete action philosophers by dunlevy and van lente
lock and key 1 hc
fear agent 3 rick remender sold out of 1 and said 3 was a good jumping on point
4 hercules hcs even though i messed up 2 of them were contained in the other 2 but i hadnt read these stories yet
3 cap hcs and operation rebirth by waid and garney sc i have been looking for that for years
agents of atlas dark reign hc
most of them except fear agent i got for 8 bucks a piece i think i paid 15 for fear agent and rick signed it for me and i got to talk to him a bit
i think i paid 11 bucks for action philosophers
Sweet deals. Good hunting. You will want those other Fear Agents at some point! I keep hoping that Dark Horse will do a hardcover.
anyone else watching no ordinary family? its fun and im pretty sure the kid on it is based on amadeus cho when they show the sfx for his power it reminds when the do the light up math equations in the comic
plus autum reeser and jullie benz are very cute
some nycc news
someone here complained about don kramer needing help on wonder woman when i spoke him and asked him what it was like working with JMS he said great except he sometimes sends scripts 2 weeks late leaving him 2 weeks to knock it out and don said he needs a month to get a book done
actually a month was pretty much the time most guys said it took them to do a book
i talked with cameron stewart and asked him what a morrison script looked like when you read it was insane or wacky he said no they were great but that grant writes very vague dialog to be replaced later after he has seen the art so he can tailor make the dialog to exactly what the artist drew. he loved when he saw the book and grant changed the script to something that matched his stuff perfectly but he says sometimes its so vague its tough to know exactly what he should be drawing he said that can get frustrating.
Hm, the thing about Grant’s vague scripts then changing the dialogue sounds almost like old school Marvel method.
hmmm, interesting tidbits Kuru!
i have more from the women of marvel panel and marvels next big thing panels that ppl were walking out of
the new spider girl book
spider girl wont have any super powers so its a book about a girl without SPIDER powers named SPIDER girl wearing the costume of SPIDER woman who had spider powers
to me thats like having a super girl or super boy book book with a girl/boy with no superpowers
but who is inspired to fight crime by superman
i know ted kord didnt have any super powers and took over for super powered blue beetle but he had very cool tech and was a grown man in great shape before he joined the jokey jla
arana has a yoyo
i trying very hard to see what is interesting or fun about this concept or why my suspension of disbelief should should allow me to believe a 100lbs girl with no powers and no real training and a yo yo can fight crime.
arana had powers they took them away im not sure why. why is she better non powered?
paul tobin is a goo writer and i like clayton henry’s art so ill give it a go
anyone else ?
youtubers i saw and said hello too at nycc
pete from cbc
og and big kev from big kevs geekstuff
hawkgirl boy from comic duo
i might have seen ilikecomictoo but it didnt look exactly like her so i didnt say hello
you know how folks can look different in real life
btw elliot from Law and Order was there with his son just walking around
If ILCT was dressed like a fine Flash, then that was her, Kuru.
you saw her? then the gal i saw wasnt her
Nah, I wasn’t there. I read a tweet of hers saying that she’d be there dressed as the Flash.
I said “Hulk Smash!” to Eric Bana as he got up on stage. He glared at me, I felt accomplished.
attention all agents of atlas and prince of power fans i highly recommend incredible hercules love and war storyline it co stars namora and introduces delphyne its also got namor and the marvel version of the amazons the namora stuff dove tails nicely into what i read in agents of atlas plus clayton henry does the art he also did some of the art in agents so she looks great and badass. she is also a big part right from the start of herc’s run when “the champions” side with hulk in world war hulk. but you dont have read all that just read love and war and enjoy a big fun action with lots of wacky fun romance and a jealous and very angry namor lol
also i never realized how strong snowbird was she had a very nice showing in the herc secret invasion storyline. the secret invasion storyline sacred wars sets up the current herc event chaos wars but its not necessary
i think pak and van lente’s herc run is the best book people around here arent reading
they make herc a major player in the marvel u and look great without diminishing anyone else. in fact they make guest stars look great too.
so many laugh out loud moments but a great action book. if you like mythology they make great use it all over this book and fit in so well with marvel continuity. and not just greco-roman myth.
Im very EAGER for NEW last rants.
So where is that ranting goodness???
this was a good list and some nice ranting one of my big pet peeves
Quick hello Foos!
What I miss?
Let’s see Smallville, Joey Q kick in face, Kuru inside scoops Herc.Namora, Mega pissed off Millar (Kudos buddy!) oh and Sifl 7 olly
Up 2 speed
Dont thank me Deemar, thank BladeOfTheMortal at CBR for pissing of Millar.
Please check my Blog!
And new art!
Deemar Do it! Do it!
Written by Geoff Johna??? Who might that be? 😛
A decent day for comics for me I must say. Grant mINdFucKS us with Batman (again…) but overall I liked the setting. Thor was fun, and I must say, IronMan wasn’t bad either.
Still need to get my comics. Thats the only badthing with image, I never know when comics are coming out.
one of the most badass fights in any anime I have seen.
Any iron raising moments in this weeks comics that need to be ripped to shreads?
SHADOWLAND needs to be buried. Even SIEGE has SOME good moments…
YIKES! When SIEGE has something on an event taht is NOT Bendis-written, that sounds REALLY BAD!
lol I know. SIEGE was bad, but I distinctly remember issue 2 being SOMEWHAT decent. So far, SHADOWLAND has been the biggest let down of 2010 for me.
I’m a New Yorker, so the idea of ‘battlin for the soul of NY’ comic seemed very epic to me, but its been NOTHING like I wanted it to be. I wanted some street action, some teams, leads, something, anything! But its been such crap that I’m just threw with it.
It should have been Daredevil handing the Avengers their fucking ass. The Hand lead by Matt Murdock would own Bendis’s team any day.
Seriously! Instead its just them all sitting around, (like the Bendis-Avengers) talking about Murdock, while Kingpin does some ancient magic thing, and UGHH such a missed opportunity Andy Diggle…
Plus, the whole Matt Murdock descending into evil thing was RUSHED. It could have been brillant.
Shadowland is fucking BRUTAL… Diggle’s script is actually just as bad as Tan’s art. what a shitty book. Very disappointing indeed.
not gonna lie I have a bit of a fatal attraction thing going on right now with this chick who goes to the gym I work at shit is the worst .
KEEP US UPDATED!!!!!!!!!
Well she’s been working out at the gym I work at for a few months. She works out all the time we became friends and a bunch of my friends work at the Y. This weekend my friend Landon brittany and I went over to her house to drink. Turns out my friends set it up so this girl and I could hook up. I had no idea she liked me that way(especially due to the fact that I was texting another girl while we were all hanging out). We all got drunk my friends went to bed leaving me and this girl by ourselves. We did our thing that night.
The next day I leave turns out she told my friend Landon and Brittany what happened with extreme details and has for the last week told everyone I work with what happened and now she acts like we’re dating. I was under the understanding it was just a one night stand turns out this bitch is crazy.
Women! Us guys will always try to understand them, but somehow we fail, it makes NO sense!
Ohhhh shit. I hope you don’t find a dead bunny D:
luckily I don’t own a bunny but I do own a dog….oh no lol
I fucking wish I has your problems Bello.
dude I’m the whore of a YMCA I’m def willing to trade a day with you Jose lol. just let me know when
No, that’s Frank DeCaro…
I just spent $50 bucks on a date and $30 on the next for the gal to tell me that she can’t see us long term. Translation, I’m not wealthy like she is.
gotta love those golddiggers
Seriously. I mean, we totally clicked. She can’t even deny that. Just because I don’t go to some crazy University or have a shit ton of cash flow, doesn’t mean I’m not smart and nice! Lol.
yeah man I feel you there it’s never enough just to find someone you get along with and fun with it’s as if they find a way to see that it won’t work. Who know’s though maybe she’ll think about it and realizing she’s making a mistake hope it all works out.
Thanks brahh. I hope so too, she was actually real cool. Most dates I go on are snore fests. She was really interesting.
What’s going on around here? Everyone’s going on dates now? Fucking hell. Ya, it may not be working out but still.
And if she is not in it for the long term make the most of the short term, Heck. It could be worse. Trust me.
I feel you on that. I mean, she cut it off totally though. I’m fine with short term! She’s like “I’ll be in touch sometime.”
Heck, that sounds to me alot like “lets just be friends”, and we all know how that plays out.
Just friends is the death sentence. Fucking conservative nonsense. 😦
Although in my case, I prefer to date a girl who I’ve known for a while, that way I know what I like about her, and why I like her.
I don’t have a date…yet 😉
There is always marriage…
Think of having to eat the same Happy Meal everyday for the rest of your life. Not the cool Chicken Nugget meal, but the plain hamburger meal, with no pickles or ketchup..
I’m saving myself for marriage, I see it as a beautiful thing.
It is a beautiful thing, just saying you better be ready to enjoy it for the rest of your life.. be certain or get the fuck out =)
That’s the pln looooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggg term, til’ death do us part.
More power to you bro. I don’t think I could do it D:
I know I can’t.
It doesn’t work for everyone, than again, despite all the low expectations you have stated on you finding someone, you could find a girl who is ver tolerable, very nice, genuious, honest, loving, caring, and so forth, and she might be the one for you. So don’t give up Jose, she could be out there, you just haven’t found her yet!
I haven’t given up so much as I have become completely apathetic to the whole situation. Living in reality is my religion. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Thanks. I don’t find stisfaction or even the tiniest bit of interest or want in one night stnds, I want to do this in a way tht I believe shows honor to both me and my future gilfriend.
“I don’t believe I care to marry though I can not say exactly why. Somehow seems to me that matrimony is misery. It’s simply a faster way to die.”
Those are pretty much my exact thoughts on the subject.
Nothing wrong with choosing not to get married Jose, I have a lot of respect for you for realizing that marriage is not for you and avoiding getting married for the wrong reasons.
I will say I felt the same way you did, until the right woman came along and changed my mind about marriage =)
Careful, women are tricky like that!
Please don’t scare me like that. I will now have nightmares tonight…and probably for the rest of the month. Thanks. 🙂
LOL. I fear the idea. My parents are miserable, my grandparents were miserable, I’m sure my great grandparents were as well.
Plus, I wouldn’t want to put a nice girl through life with me. That’s too mean. I also have no interest in procreating.
That’s why I say be certain..
I was 36 before I got married.. (yes, I am old)
Never say never =)
Well, at least someone’s happy. I gotta say. I salute you for being able to do it. You are a better man than I am, Gunga Din.
I’m all on your side IM!
I’m turning 36 next year. God dammit IM, stop it already. I’ve already got the heebie jeebies.
J, don’t give in. 😀
I am sure it will never happen to you Jose, I seriously doubt that in the next couple of years I will be attending your wedding, to a lovely woman that loves you very much and wants to have your babies..
But in case you do get married, I have my suite ready =)
You guys will be visiting my funeral before my wedding. I’m just saying.
This discussion we are having with Jose should put me and you IM in his wedding party! 😀
Oh yeah…If Jose did getmarried, adn we really were in his wedding party, I would totally be the guy hitting on the single bridesmaides 😛
Wanna know about marriage, don’t do it until your ready.
Period, point blank.
And extremely unnecessary.
Another uplifting song about marriage.
Not in the same vein as the last few but kinda sad none the less.
As an aside, I totally dig that tune.
Every one of Kathleen Edwards’ 3 albums are solid. This song is off of “Asking for Flowers”. It’s my favorite album of hers.
Dude, you sure know good music. I don’t know anyone else that likes such good stuff.
Thanks Heck. That does mean a lot to me coming from you. You’re no slouch in the “knowing good music” category either.
Thanks man. I appreciate that. Music is what gets me through the days 😀
Which makes music so good 🙂
Me too. I get to listen to my music all day at the comic shop when I work. There is no better feeling to me than when a customer asks what album I am listening to because they like it. Well, a customer dropping a Bendis book off their club does come close.
I love that. Nothing like showing off good music and having someone realize that they need to be listening too.
My friend thinks Mumford and Sons is the worst thing ever since I play their album all the time, but then again he listens to the Disturbed so I don’t value his thoughts on music much.
Disturbed?! Fuck me. Does he like Slipknot too? Sounds like you need a new friend.
Thankfully he does not like Slipknot. That would end the friendship right there.
He wants to get a new apartment with me, and Jesus, I’ll kill him if he plays Disturbed.
A non youtube link for ya.
But your wife can do other things for you that a single woman might now..
for example =)
I think we could pay some girl to do that. Although the “rough side” doesn’t seem appealing…
but that’s when you know a woman really loves you, sack detailing for free =)
Your wife have any hot friends? 😛
HAHAHAHA!!!! The greasy trailer park girl from My Name Is Earl! good choice IM! But most wives usually will respond like :”I’M NOT DOING THAT”, or “PLAY WITH YOURSELF” 🙂
And you all are able to get married and I’m not.
Yeah… sounds about right…
That’s Jamie Lee Pressly and she is one of the hottest women you will ever meet.
Also posed nude for Playboy twice and was in “Poison Ivy: The New Seduction” among many other things.
one of my favorite songs about love and marriage
Jose, I’m still the lonely, bitter, “He was such a normal looking guy, kept to himself” person I’ll always be.
Let’s change it up a bit.
I also am a robot, thanks for changing the subject.
“I wanted to be a pastry chef be shI AM A ROBOT! I AM A ROBOT!”
jim and tracy crack me up
Very cool song Jose, sort of reminds me of the Pillows =)
awesome Jose, I could listen to the Pillows all night, but I have to hit the sack…
See everyone tomorrow =)
Bowie is in a class all by himself. Hmmm…maybe The Beatles are is there with him too. And possibly Eno.
There’s always Cobain’s cover of Bowie. Great in it’s own way.
I was never really a big Nirvana fan but there is no doubt that their influence on music in the nineties was very much appreciated by me.
I was never big into Nirvana. I actually started listening to them with All Apologizes. I think Cobain always put wicked emotion into every song though.
I liked Green Day in the 90’s.
I’m taking the Blue and Green albums with me to work tomorrow. 🙂
Speaking of which, it’s time for me to turn in. I have a nine hour shift to work and have to be up in 6 hours. Talk to yo all tomorrow.
Have a good night/day brother man.
Chillin in Orlando.
Long day sleepy, ready to go home. and you?
I’d like to be in Orlando!
Sitting here, watching Mad Men with a few beers. Sad night 😀
Oh its not a vacation, but yeah I have beer and a mini bar! 🙂
Me Up late Dee
Glad I got somebody to talk too.
We some nite owls
what up deemar
Wassup Bello, hows the Y-M-C-A!
haven’t gotten any creepy texts tonight so all’s good right now. Monday night i actually had to calm a drunk guy down failed to do that so I had to call the police. My years of being around drunk people failed me this time.
Heavy sounds like you been having a wild couple days.
yeah your not kidding Deemar guess us 22 year olds shouldn’t get involved with 29 year old’s it doesnt end well
Maturity has no number.
Older women…*Russian accent* “I jump in it.”
*kisses tiny giraffe*
hey I didn’t mind it at the time I’m def open to it again as long as the next one ain’t so damn crazy or at least don’t hang out with my coworkers .
Ah…gotta keep work and love life seperate.
Gots too, nothing but trouble
office romances never end well…
Yo Dee, I have a friend who gave me some words of russsian advice, there is NOTHING more beatiful than a 20 year old russian girl
and there is NOTHING more hideous than a 80 year old russian grandma, lol 🙂
I’d heed his words.
Russian women are hot as hell when they young though.
Hell the whole Eastern Block breeds some hot chicks
seriously all that cold weather and communist roots…lead out hot ass women.
You want to talk weather and women…come to Canada! The women here are AMAZING! The heat in summer brings out the hotness in all the ladiez here.
Free medicine and hot women? hey Venom, I’m coming to Canada 😀
Umm…polish girls nah
…russian girls hell yeahz
always wanted to go to Canada. Now I have another reason other than Universal health care
Yes you do indeed 😀
Heck you are the man this video is so awesome lol
I try, I try 😀
I actually was thinking of starting to watch Sesame Street again. I watched it with my niece who’s a year old, and damn She & Him were on an episode.
that’s cool Zooey Deshanel is awesome (500) Days of Summer’s been coming on nonstop on HBO over the last few weeks I swear I’ve watched it just about everytime it’s come on
I fall in love with her everytime I re-watch that film. It’s sad ahaha.
I’m feeling Zooey also.
She’s hippie-ish, but I like that
If only she wasn’t married…
Hey never stopped most people.
Jennifer Aniston knows about that.
This is true. I guess I’ll be a home wrecker. I have no shame.
Funny you should post that just did a Sesame Street related piece of art.
Possible, it was another request.
You’ll get to see it eventually. It’s pretty damn hilarious.
nothing much bud just hanging out should go to bed but I’m too bored to sleep. Thinking on catching up on the episodes of Dexter I missed
Isn’t Dexter having another season? I could be wrong?
yeah it just started a few weeks back. I don’t have showtime anymore because other than their shows the networks pretty shitty. I’ve had to watch it through other means
Dude, watch Californication. It’s taking forever to come back, but it’s badass.
I love Weeds too, but that’s a required taste.
yeah i’ve seen a few episodes of Californication I thought it was pretty cool I’ll have to check those out. I can’t wait till Nurse Jackie comes back I love that show.
It’s really funny. Plus, I’m a lot like a younger Hank Moody in that show. I can relate.
Nurse Jackie is good?
yeah I like it. It’s actually a pretty funny show Eddie Falco’s really good in it.
Yes “other” means. lol
So hows that work if Julie Benz is on No Ordinary Family?
Can’t explain it until you see Season 4 of Dexter. Don’t want to give it away.
Dude just spoil it, seriously I’ll watch it anyways.
What happens to her
in season 4 Dexter goes against another serial killer at the end of the season guy figures out who dexter is and kills Rita
Time to get back into Dexter. 🙂
Well I’m going to bed gotta get up in oh 2hrs 45mins. 😦
but now she is super fast and her hubby is a good guy and her side kick is a cutie pie
I like Benz she very sexy
I’m up on a thrill:
Jose, you get around to picking up that City and Colour album yet? 🙂
Hey Pobra, I’ve been meaning to ask you, since you are from Ontario, are you a leafs fan or a sens fan?
as a native torontonian, it’s leafs all the way. 3 and 0 so far. woot!
normally i would mock you in this instance, but as they are WAY better than last year, i will do no such thing but see if they can keep it up.
Oh yeah, what did you think of this? (if you haven’t seen it that is:
anyone know what this is from? my buddy sent it to me we havent a clue is it a marvel alliance cut scene? thanks
I’ve heard about this, look very interesting.
I like the art style
at the marvel next big thing panel arun whats his name in charge marketing started the panel off with “if you havent sign up for marvel’s digital service upstairs make sure you do blah blah blah” so that turned me off right away honestly i felt like 90 % of the panel was more of sales pitch for the books then talking about the books. jason aaron seemed to be the only actually speaking about his book instead of selling it. a lot of people got up and left. it was packed it the panel started but as it went on more and more poeple got up and left and i think the only thing that made the rest stay was the free iphone/itouch marvel cover thingie they gave out at the end.
jeph loab took a shot at dcs 20 page books during the thing. arun was talking one of dan slots spideys scripts and said he got to that last page and was blown away. so loeb chimed in and said was that 20 page book or 22 page book? because if it a 22 page book another company would be missing the big wow moment or something to that effect. it was real cheap. a lot of folks got up and left
most of what they said was on the net already before weekend but this was news to me scorpion wont be venom much longer he will go back to being scorpion and they way they made it sound the symbiot wasnt going to join up with anyone. they kept saying were the symbiot will end up going they never used the term who would end up with the symbiot.
after that it was Q&A with most ppl just asking bendis fot spoilers
Rest In Peace “Young Allies” for me you will not be missed.
if you want to see a cool comic culture statue collection check out averone007 on youtube
the guy’s collection is insane he gets custom pieces he has a half size hulk lol
the new NON super powered spider girl will be taking on the red hulk …. i am speachless
Spider-Girl is powerless?
What’s the point? She got gadgets?
she has a yo yo grappling hook thingie
The following video reminded me of the marriage discussion you guyes were having earlier, thus I thought I’d share it here since some may find it interesting and it’s actually somewhat comic related if only tangentially at best. At NYCC this year was a proposal and an acceptance to a round of applause and cheers as two become one, presumably for ever and ever and ever, ‘tll death due they part and all that unrealistic nonsense since humans aren’t a species made for enternal union (I guess you can guess where I stand on the marriage thing now, huh?). In any case, here’s a vid many of you have said you’ll likely never do. It’s always titillating to see a proposal in real life. It has more punch and potential for unmitigated embarrassment/disaster if “No” is the answer given. Whoops! More rambling! Vid below. Before that, though, here’s a question: would any of yous ever propos in a public venue populated by thousands of onlookers?
I’m curious as to what the girl’s mom thinks of this. Like, is she cool with the environment? Or does she think “Humpf! Some son-in-law! Couldn’t take my daughter to Paris or Niagra Falls to propose…he took her to the Superfriend’s hang out!”
But you know what? Bless ’em anyway. I hope they’re happy.
Either Steve Rogers really let himself go while Bucky took over or Marvel is really trying to push Captain Samoa.
Proposal is nice too. 🙂
I proposed to my wife on a bench in a local park near our home. The moment had much more significance to both of us then if I did it on top of the Empire State Building or at a Knicks game. Not to be cynical or anything, but I’m a little suspicious of these public proposals. It’s like, who invited you to invite me into your private moment, anyways?

Anyone read 18 days by Grant Morrison?
I haven’t BUT I did read Cross Game Vol 1 today. You should buy it if you can Mike. I loved it.
I already plan on buying it. Hearing from you that its good is only more incentive 🙂
I’m of two minds about this, the beat is bananas, but its a rhyme about Pokemon?
gotta catch them all
Ha! seriously, some took the time too make this?
Heres a beat for that ass J
Good one D.
Paul Cornell said on Twitter today that he saw a site with over 2000 links to illegally download KNIGHT AND SQUIRE and he said it made him outraged, and I quote “BLOODY THIEVES”
I must admit, stuff like that does make me real upset. I like to value myself as a writer, and if people were stealing my hard work for free I’d be pissed. I hate to sound like the old school guy, but it’s just not cool.
That said, comics shouldn’t be $3.99. I’m looking at you Joey Q.
I agree with you Heck. The reason people steal comics these days are because the prices always change. I mean 2 MARVEL comics are $8 when I can get a Manga at Borders (coupon) for that price and its a lot longer and in most cases (more interesting)
Its a shame people steal but, they don’t steal because they wanna, usually there’s a reason behind everything.
I’m just a purist…. sadly…. I have to own the things I love. Every expensive anime import, every original uncut video game, every comic… ughh
Exactly. I mean we all like our entertainment. Times being how they are, we might never be able to afford them. Still, people neglect the fact that people work hard for that entertainment and that it isn’t a given.
The reason comics were SO popular back in the Great Depression was because they were cheap, disposable entertainment. I just can’t see paying $8 for two floppys.
I too am a purist. I binge on old books. Whenever I run across a used book store, where I can spend 10 bucks and get 10 books, I go nuts. That’s my vice. I still buy CDs and vinyls cause I like to have the actual album. I’m old school that way, and honestly I don’t mind it.
I had a funny joke for that, but I’m too spent
If anyone gets past the 20 minute video loading time, I have a link to the new Black Panther Man Without Fear Preview:
I was wondering what you guys thought of that. Seems like an interesting idea.
Any new CCW youtube videos coming soon?
That is a very good question that I do not have an answer for.
Hey guys! What’s up? Sorry I’ve been absent here on the blog. I’ve been fairy busy with school and my Grandma’s funeral and other various little things, but it looks ike I’l be having some free time coming up soon. I have a much needed 5-day weekend next week! 🙂
Things I’ve read recently:
– JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice. It’s a fun superhero team team-up book. Pacheco’s art is great. Some of his best work if you ask me.
– Bleach. On volume 6 right now. I love Bleach. It’s a very rich world with very 3-dimensional characters and good humor and awesome fight scenes and one-liners. Oh, and the monster drawings are very cool.
I’m going to a comic convention tomorrow so I can’t stay up too late tonight, but I’ll be updating my twitter account at the convention! Follow me: http://twitter.com/comicbookdude89
That’s all! Have a great weekend everyone!
CBD everything went well at the funeral?
Welcome back buddy
Yes the funeral was wonderful.
Glad to hear it.
Give me a idea for a superhero and I’m gonna bang ya out a cool pic tomorrow.
Least I can do.
Would you be willing to do a design of my Batman character in my Batman of the Future story?
Yep email the details and give me two days
Awesome. I’ll send the details tomorrow. NOW GET SOME SLEEP 😉
I heard that with the DC prices lowered there will be more ads, anyone else hear about that?
Guys I am at a tough call here. I’ve been wanting to read DMZ for a while now, and with 53 coming out next week, I decided the time is here, BUT I need your advice guys…
Should I just go for Trade’s or try to get the back issues? Is it a series worth collecting in whole from issue or decent enough to carry around thru trade?
A NEW CCW youtube last rants pt 1 on Bendis & comics writers/journalism.
I gave Bendis Avengers #1 a shot but it was the same ol’ same ol’ w/ JRJR blocky artwork on faces that do nothing for me. I got burned out on Powers because on the delays between issues. I read Ult. Spider-Man in HC (12 or 13 issue chunks).
I do like the snarky reviews that you put on Bendis & Loeb but I do enjoy the serious reviews of manga, indie & hidden gems from DC & Marvel. I have no interest right now to try Scarlet because I feel it will be a “flash in the pan” 5 or 6 issues & move on to something different like same bleeping Moon Knight. Really Bendis MOON KNIGHT!!! UGH!
So in closing thanks for your many reviews on comics because it opens my eyes to new stuff like Blankets, Scalped, DC Elseworlds from Alan Davis, & Monster manga.
CCW is the awesome sauce!
Yeah, I gave Scarlet 2 issues and dropped it. Artwork was lovely but there was nothing compeling enough for me to keep it on my pull list. Bendis doesn’t really stack up to repeated readings for me. Not even his “good stuff” like Alias.
