May 7, 2013 4:56 pm @Paul: When my friend Brad and I were in high school, we had an Indian chemistry teacher with a thick accent who called him "Bread" and the nickname stuck with great hilarity.
April 22, 2013 5:32 pm I liked your casting pics - all except for Apollo. Skarsgård isn't beautiful enough. You need a big blond actor, like Chris Hemsworth.
April 20, 2013 7:47 pm I agree, this issue easily could've been condensed into flashback interstitials of a standard issue (the same way Hopeless has been backgrounding each of his other POV characters), but this way, Marvel squeezes another $2.99 out of us. :-/ Also - I was still a bit unclear at the end of #7, as far as the true source of Arcade's new powers as well as the truth about Ms. Coriander. (Was she all in his head?)
April 19, 2013 7:13 pm I'm still pissed that I'm paying *a small fortune* for this event - but this issue was really good. Can't wait to see the Butterfly Effect of what Logan just did...
April 13, 2013 8:57 pm This issue was a snooze-fest, in my opinion. Twenty minutes after reading it, I had already forgotten what happened. Then I paged through it again and realized why: the comic book version of Maggie is boring compared to her TV counterpart, and she's the throughline of this issue. Also, the issue tag wasn't gripping enough for a monthly; this Jesus guy is a B-level character, and his mere suspicions about missing "Kal"... I dunno, just didn't do it for me. :-/ Hoping that a coming issue gets me reinvested or I'm taking a break.
April 13, 2013 8:42 pm I think this issue only shows off Snyder's talents all the more. It's not very often that a comic book writer can shift gears so quickly and tell a different kind of story - changing his tone, pacing, etc. - and still make it be enjoyable. I was late the Scott Snyder game but over the past couple of years I've really become a convert. The guy just rocks, period. And he's taught his pupil well, too; that Tynion backup was very unique and engaging.
April 13, 2013 2:03 am +1 :) I own that Batman Family comic, too. Got it at a used book store - for a dime, I think! Amazing how I can own thousands of comic books over decades of collecting and yet I still know every cover, plus where I got the book. If I ever have kids, I'd love it if they loved anything like that.
April 5, 2013 7:40 pm It's a very readable but DECOMPRESSED mini. It might be the first one in quite some time that I don't finish. Marvel Now's initiative of upping the prices on their regular titles plus decompressing us with minis might be the straw that breaks this camel's back...
New Comics for 04.03.2013 Wants a Replica Skyhook from ‘Bioshock Infinite’ But Knows It Will Just Collect Dust
April 1, 2013 6:31 pm EARTH 2 #11, yay! BQ: I seriously want a carbonite-frozen Han Solo mounted above my fireplace (horizontally). It'll be behind a small curtain, so when visitors ask what's behind the curtain, I can laugh like Jabba and then reveal my eternal prisoner... :)
