September 2, 2013 8:17 pm I'm saddened by the news but that's just me being selfish! I know I was pretty sporadic in my contributions to the iFanboy discussions, but I was a constant visitor. Because iFanboy has been a great place for comic fans to talk about the things they love. That's something I don't have the opportunity to do a lot since I don't have a lot of friends into comics (especially at my age). All I can say is thanks for so much fun, for giving another fan a place to touch base with other fans and I hope everyone at iFanboy finds nothing but success and happiness in their other endeavours. And that goes for the other fans in the comments section too. Thanks for letting me part of the community!
August 22, 2013 5:12 pm It's been a controversial run among many Wonder Woman fans. But as far as I'm concerned, it has easily been one of the most engrossing, exciting and inventive runs in years. As soon as I finished the issue, I felt this was pick of the week material for sure. Glad to see I'm not alone in that. And I'm psyched to see what comes next. Great, great stuff.
August 20, 2013 8:27 pm I was just thinking about how much I enjoyed - and still enjoy - comics from the 1970s. They seemed to be more about the imagination and adventure than the brooding darkness. That said, there are some good "lighter" books out there, like Hawkeye, Daredevil and FF. Those remind me of the old spirit of things. And they still have some pretty dark parts in there too. DC has tried; OMAC was pretty fun fare. But the efforts have been fewer and further between... and don't always gel with the buyers. I think there's this idea that for comics to be morekid-friendly, they have to be dumbed down. I don't believe that for a moment myself. And we should WANT comics that we would be cool with handing to a kid. Otherwise, the industry is printing to an ever-aging audience...and that means essentially printing itself into extinction.
August 17, 2013 7:36 pm I dropped Fantastic Four pretty early on...but I've really been digging FF. Ah, well. At least Hawkeye is still awesome.
August 1, 2013 8:16 pm I second this review! A question: did you read the digital version? The touch of motion comic they added actually enhanced the whole look and feel. Really great use of the digital medium in an organic way!
August 1, 2013 8:09 pm I definitely enjoyed this one, but I can see why others wouldn't. The character models took a bt of getting used to and the world was dark. I had forgotten just how dark Flashpoint was, but this sure reminded me in a hurry. That said, once I got past my initial shock over some of the designs and dark elements, I found a lot to like. The transitions were impressive (especilly the way they just eased into the Flashpoint universe; very nicely done). The action was fluid and visceral and felt like it had genuine stakes. This was truly no holds barred and much bloodier than your average DC film - but that's in keeping with the story. Speaking of story, they did a good job of making the story - a fairly challenging one to deliver - stand alone for people. I think if you have a basic understanding of the DCU, you get it. They even managed to touch on a lot of the elements covered in the minis in a natural way. And there's even a post credits sequence (of a sort). The characters and voices were bang on as well. Voice casting was huge on this with so manycharacters but they got a mix of familiar folks with some geat additions. They accomplished a lot in this film. And they did it really well. If you aren't a fan of Flashpoint - or dark stories in general - you likely won't dig it. But I don't mind the occassional dark story - I wouldn't want all DC movies to be like this, but I'm okay with this one. My favourite part: two teardrops hitting a paper. You managed to get me a little choked up there, DC.
July 27, 2013 11:25 pm Agree with this pick 100% - it's mine as well!
July 22, 2013 6:28 pm MUCH more manageable week! Most looking forward to Aquaman, Superman/Batman and JL Dark...but I'll be throwing in a Fairest Vol. 2 in there too! As for the BQ....I haven't really been watching regular TV anymore. But I still watch Arrow, because it's fun. Can we count that?
July 21, 2013 7:55 pm Smart. Take your two most recognizable characters - characters whose last movies were huge. Put them together. And if that creates a soft intro for a JL movie, even better!
July 18, 2013 9:40 pm Oh,crap. I, like Josh, don't really care about Deadpool. But it sounds like I may enjoy this run of Deadpool. ANOTHER comic to pick up? Just when I thought my pull list was getting under control....
