    August 15, 2017 7:22 am You know the whole 'because comics' and 'comics should be wacky' approach? I mean fine that can work I normally don't go in for that approach but fine. A character in Secret Empire that vomits up solutions for "altruistic purposes? ?? Yeah- No. If he can vomit up a piece of the cosmic cube? Why not the WHOLE CUBE? Or in the very least more pieces? I get the cheeky humour here- I don't think it works. Ron know that you don't pronounce E.M.P. as a whole word right? Emp? Egg-ret is one thing But I know that he has heard the electro magnetic pulse acronym pronounced before Tom King- I think maybe after the Batman suicide plot device just a month ago- using that theme again in Mister Miracle kind of seems lazy/weird.
    August 5, 2017 11:43 am It is interesting to see how movie opinions change on ifanboy. It's also just a little weird to hear more praise for something like Justice League War than Phantasm. - And talk about soft looking Justice League war looks like it was drawn with Vaseline on the lens - and the 'story telling" Well--
    August 3, 2017 10:33 am Agreed. I would love to have a sketch of his on my wall, but he's the wrong artist for this book from a story telling perspective. I think the reason senseless killing wasn't discussed is b/c it's impact wasn't really felt with this art. I had to go back a few times to even see it.
    July 30, 2017 4:03 pm Ultimates- Continues to be the smarter version of Hickman's -fuck everything in the Marvel U- and making sense of some absurdly Shamalan fuck the universe concepts. He's the one putting it back together- we owe him.
    July 30, 2017 3:40 pm No- No- no It wasn't Kyle that caused things to blow up it was the volatile- craziness of Sorakink that did that. Hyle was trying to protect her. Really - at This point Brian Wood is One of the best writers in comics? No- Duh. Don't get me wrong that is 100 correct. Also white guys who have a mad on for war stuff is maybe-- check your coffee. Superman stuff isn't perfect right now but it is all some of the best all around comics of everything right now. Which is awesome. Not sure I understand the Harry's testimony this week. And listen - you cant use the "can you unlock the case for me" anymore that's EVERY podcast. The main element that doesn't make sense about Secret Empire is the fact that Steve Rogers comes off as a Strong guy without logic or ability to carry this out. And Sorrentino's art is very very- very muddy and gimmicky and the last action sequence is missing about 10 panels. You knot it's true.
    July 26, 2017 12:28 pm Whatever you think about Secret War- and it is mild to say I am not a fan of it. I will give credit for the overall technical blueprint of how it would affect the Marvel U. One of the biggest problems with has to be that Spencer has somehow either purposefully- aka- Trump commentary or he just doesn't have the chops for it- written Captain America as little more than a thug. A dumb- oafish strong man and not the brilliant technician Steve Rogers is and definitely not the step up even he would need to become in order to really pull something like this off- make it believable and even begin to sell this.

    July 16, 2017 2:19 pm The Casting- Was this written by George Perez? So many words. I thought it was an over written mess. Art changes were jarring. I also quit Weapon X half way through. Which is odd b/c I was enjoying that series. Nth metal being more important than a power for Thanagarians is too much. Doesn't work and it's def over stretching it's value. I fear this is only going to get worse. I'm a sucker for alternate character versions though so hopefully that will be entertaining. I am enjoying my Harry;s blade quite a bit. I will say - the trimmer blade doesn't work very well and the post shave balm smells like old man on the town but it continues to impress with durability. I really wish Remender would just let the aging angry punk thing go- Let it go man. You can hold on to the ideals for sure- but the emo railing about it is tired. Bearded and jacked Barry Allen was awesome.
    July 12, 2017 6:32 pm Is anyone else bothered by how Jean Grey is written- I mean her voice. Hopeless has her obsessed with snapchat and twitter - Bunn writes things like- "It's not unlike the nightmare future I feared would one day dawn." Is it that tough for a Marvel writer to - sound like smart teenager and not a cliche?
