August 23, 2012 2:45 pm Paul, Thanks for the answer. In a way that's disappointing to me. I wish they were bolder like DC was when they decided to do the new 52.
August 23, 2012 2:08 pm Question for anyone that can help me here. Marvel says this isn't a relaunch or reboot. So are the rest of the X books going to continue along side of this, or is everything ending and we will just have the 1 or 2 X books?
January 12, 2012 4:30 pm Not OMAC! Thats a shame. . . just what we needed, another Batman title.
December 22, 2011 11:57 am I'd buy it! I liked the prologue except for not being about to understand him. I got about 80% of what he said. Several people in the theater were complaining both as it was happening and afterwards. I don't know if I want to sit in a theater and try to decipher what he's saying when everyone next to you is also going talking to their friends asking what the hell he just said.
December 4, 2011 7:12 pm There are definitely creepy people out there. I know I've been creepy at some points, but as you said we all get creepy sometimes when its something we care about. The problem with the comic book industry, or any industry is that the industry tries to make me care about their product. This in itself is a double edge sword. I care so I'm going to support you and buy your product and tell my friends that they should buy it to. At the same token, if I do all of that and I care, the opposite will happen. In any industry if they do something that's grossly unpopular they will hear about it from those who care. Watchmen 2 is a perfect example of something that just makes me angry. No I don't have to read it. I might even pirate it out of sheer protest to read it because I don't want to support them in any way on this project . . . even if it turns out to be better then the first one. I know that sounds asinine. Its downright fucked up and creepy, but they made me care about something, and I feel that it shouldn't be messed with. Maybe 5 years from now I'll have an Absolute edition sitting next to the first one. Time will tell. I'm going to take this on a bit of a tangent for a bit. One other thing that kind of annoys me sometimes about creators (all creators, not just comics) is how they characterize feedback. In a lot of interviews I hear them say something like "We decided to do A, and we got a lot of negative feedback, so we decided to do Z and they still complained" which makes it sound like the same exact people that complained about A complained about Z, when in reality they are 2 completely different groups of people most of the time. Unfortunately thats just going to happen. Looking back at the 2000 elections it was 48 to 47 percent between Bush and Gore. No matter who won a large chunk of people were going to be pissed.
November 18, 2011 1:13 pm Huh, I guess I'm totally wrong then. I thought he left and was coming back. I guess we'll see.
November 18, 2011 11:40 am I don't think they will cancel X-factor any time soon. Isn't Peter David supposed to start on the series again soon? I think they are hoping he will revitalize the brand. I think it will be around till the summer at least.
November 14, 2011 3:36 pm Ron spent quite a bit of time on the podcast complaining about what he spent on a book. Granted that was a special case, but price does pay a factor on how you feel overall. If you know you overpaid for something then you just feel screwed/cheated. Its a hobby, but its a hobby that I got into when things were much cheaper. $4 a book is just too much money, and while I love comics and I'm loving the DC reboot, I've been giving some serious though about where my money goes. I think that should be said about any hobby that has a price to it.
November 14, 2011 3:27 pm I kind of like it, but I feel he looks a bit too much like the X-men villain Apocalypse and I've never felt that way before.
November 5, 2011 1:36 pm Ron if you liked Pluto then you NEED to read 20th Century boys. Dear lord its awesome. There are 3 movies out also that do the Manga justice.
