Re: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox DVD

Soooo...you're saying I should break new ground instead of re-hashing the same conversation over and over again?

Hey man, I'm just trying to fit in around here :twisted:

Re: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox DVD

If I may ask, how, exactly, are these movies not for a niche market? How are they for the mass market? I know about them because I buy them and because I buy comic books. I have never seen them advertised anywhere else at all, not even during related TV programmes, not in magazines (could you imagi...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

But you know who got screwed over the most in my opinion? I'd have to say Captain Marvel... The guy went from being a deep character full of depth, to a raging arsehole that would give House a run for his money. I didn't include Captain Marvel because DC has been giving him the shaft for a long tim...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

I'm longing for the end of the H'El on Earth storyline. I should be loving it - I'm a massive Supergirl fan, a slightly less massive Superman fan and I quite like Superboy. On the other hand I'm a massive Supergirl fan and watching her play the unwitting pawn to a genocidal maniac for several issue...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

Sounds like you are having the same problem with thr Bat books that i'm having with Avengers: Quantity over quality. I mean how can you have 6 different titles about the Worlds Mightest Heroes. Not to pull a Syndrome (from the Incredibles): However if everyone is one of the worlds mightest heroes, ...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

They need to trim some fat from the bat. Too many bat-titles. Also true. I'm afraid that Batwing would be trimmed. I like having a title that's not set in America and that feels both familiar and original. If they cut Batwoman or Batgirl, I'd shed no tears. I don't even look to a cut of the periphe...

Re: What are you still reading from the New DC universe?

And as much as I love a good Joker story, this Death of the Family is all over the road. Tbere is no cohesive narrative, just each title's main characters dealing with the return of the Joker (maybe). Throne of Atlantis looks good so far, by comparison. Tighter plotting, and only two titles crossing...

Re: Crisis on Infinite Earths

Crisis on Infinite Earths remains one of my all time favorite stories. When I first started collecting super hero comics seriously in the late 80s, I got a head start with some grab-bags of random comics at a bookstore on the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. COIE and the Legends mini-series were repres...

Re: Man of Steel 2013 film

There`s a line that I`m not sure irks me or piques my interest. Clark saves a schoolbus and Jon Kent is saying he has to be careful with his powers and Clark asks what he should have done... let them die? The response is... maybe. Had me going WTF? That goes against every incarnation of Jon Kent I`...

Re: The HOBBIT An Unexpected Journey 2013

I greatly enjoyed this flick. I started to worry as the framing sequence at the beginning seemed to run on a bit, but things started to roll.

And the added nemesis for Thorin? :shock: Yeah. Very cool. Go see this. Now. Good times!

I'm cautiously optimistic, and every tidbit leaking out in recent weeks is making me feel more confident that this will be a good Superman film.

Re: Avengers Arena: The Last Straw.

I think Marvel's success at the movie box office is contributing to the laziness of the comic book production. Its almost like making comics is something they're doing out of habit, and since the big screen versions of said heroes is making beaucoup bucks, who cares about the source material?

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

I am liking Morrison's Batman stories more and more, mostly because he is essentially ignoring the reboot in favore of finishing the storyline he began, not trying to showhorn in the continuity changes. I'm kinda leaning the opposite way, and I used to be a big fan of Morrison's work. All his curre...
