Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

Mixed feelings on this episode. Nothing I especially loved or loathed one way or the other. The worst part was the soap opera relationship mash-up with Ollie / Laurel / Sara / Nyssa. Ollie jumping Sara at the end of the episode was especially cliche and disappointing. Katie Cassidy is getting better...

I've assumed that "Ian Quinn" somehow equates to "IQ," but I dunno for sure.

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

Is "Kang the Conqueror" Fox or Disney film/television property? I'm thinking maybe he's the Clairvoyant? Time Travel isn't exactly outside the scope of the Marvel Universe nor outside the mythos of the cinematic universe, and a nefarious person from the future would work as a "clairvoyant" who does...

Re: Justice League: War

Just watched it. Ares' post covers my thoughts almost exactly. This movie would only be slightly bad except for the misleading words "Justice League" in the title. I generally liked the Flash's portrayal, although he was severely underutilized. Batman was okay. Cyborg was tolerable. Pretty much ever...

Re: Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

I watched an Ironman one made in the same style a good while back (it even had the punisher and Black Widow in it) and found it severely disappointing . I'll likely not be going after this one. Same here. The art and animation aren't my favorites, but that's forgivable. The storyline, characterizat...

Re: Cosmic Handbook News(?)

Very trilled to be working with folks like Christopher McGlothlin and Jack Norris! Yup. Those two in particular tend to put a big ol' smile on my face when I read their work or hear them on podcasts. I can relate to the passions (and peeves) that influence them. That you've gotten to work with them...

Re: Best Comic Storylines?

I'd go along with about 90% of what's been mentioned already. I'd have to add Mark Gruenwald's original Squadron Supreme limited series from the '80s, as that's one of my all-time favorites. I'd also add that If the names "Kurt Busiek" or "Roy Thomas" appear in the credits, it's probably worth looki...

Re: The decline of modern comics...

Regarding Greycrusader's comments... I completely understand and agree with the points you made. That said, whatever the specific causes were that led to the current state of the big two in the comics industry, they've lost me as a reader. To little, to late: They burned a lot of readers & yes an im...

Re: Cosmic Handbook News(?)

Last I heard, the Cosmic Handbook was one of a small handful of books that were slated for a 2014 release. I don't think anyone's committed to a date more solid than "by the end of 2014." http://greenronin.com/2013/12/ronin_round_table_around_the_w.php Less information the better until its release.....

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

So we got a glimpse of what happened to Coulson... And it seems clear it was Fury who gave the project the green light... But there's still no hint as to why Fury did it. I can't imagine it was because Coulson was too valuable an asset or Fury was too sentimental to let him die. Coulson had to've be...

Re: Time of the Doctor (Doctor Who Christmas Special)

...hmmm... Overall, I liked it... But for all the clever details and nostalgia and bits i really enjoyed, the episode felt haphazard and the plot lines they resolved felt rushed and a little contrived. It was certainly a fun romp and I have no real complaints. Despite some of the Pond-haters out the...
