June 10, 2013 10:31 pm Okay... The trailer with 1) Russell Crowe speaking as Jor-El about his son, the way he describes his uniqueness 2) and when he's explaining to Lois what the "S" on his chest stands for and 3) when Supes is drifting away from a vessel in outer space toward earth notice the pose he is holding. There are many these are few. I'll just give one example of All Star Superman, the cover to issue No. 10 Supes pose can easily be compared to a certain painting of Jesus Christ in THE SAME POSE. It's up to you how much attention you pay.
June 10, 2013 6:44 pm BATMAN #21 SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1 GOTG #3 THE DREAM MERCHANT #2 BQ: Hmmm... I don't have anything, but now I want to find something to focus my obsession on.
June 10, 2013 6:34 pm I'd like to know if Jim read All Star Superman and if so, what did he think of it? I bring this up because there's people who gripe about the Christ-like undertones(?) in the new movie, yet these same people LOVE All Star Supes. If Jim has not read All Star then fine, no problem there due to consistency, but if he did read that story and like it, I have to call B.S. just like all those other phonies.
June 6, 2013 1:59 pm At times, people tend to overreact to things. This is one of those times. Yes, the title is kind of harsh, but its only that. We don't know what the story is yet, so let's reserve comments until then. Personally, I'm curious about this and maybe I'll try it out.
June 6, 2013 1:23 pm I couldn't wait to get the whole story as its been truly is informative. I found myself laughing at your pops pointing out Snyder's name to the retailer as for some reason I imagined Humphrey Bogart demanding, "Scott Snyder, does this name mean anything to you?" Not that your dad looks or speaks that way at all its just me. No disrespect intended. I would like to know David, when will the remaining issues 3 -5 be released? Or will the GN be out at some point? Again, good stuff and wishing the best for you guys and your comic.
June 4, 2013 1:28 pm I'm looking forward to the next two parts and interested in learning more about both stories. The first being the whole process of putting out your own comic out through the direct market and second, the book itself. Some questions for David Accampo or anyone who may have the answers: Is the story out now as individual issues or what # is it on? Is it sold in trade form? Is it out through comixology?
June 3, 2013 10:16 pm @IthoSapien: Look at it this way: When I was told that I didn't look Mexican, the other meaning in this was that if I did look the part I probably wouldn't be accepted by those kids who made this particular observation. Culture identity is important to me because it defines who I am in the best way and to be identified as something else is offensive. Not sure how you don't understand this. And a self proclaimed geek making this comparison is just grasping at meaning to was is a mere lifestyle choice, nothing more. @little_mascara: It drives me crazy when people say these stupid things. And you'd think this static mentality couldn't exist at this time, but sadly, it still does.
June 3, 2013 1:20 pm I totally agree with your article, Jim. I've had an awareness of Chris Hardwick for sometime, but never thought to look into this person's claims of true nerdism. Now I know I was right to ignore him. I'm so tired of people's willingness to be a victim in these situations. Where does that come from? What's more and I'll tell anyone this for free: I was told I DIDN'T LOOK MEXICAN when I was growing up and to hear kids say that to me was an indescribable feeling. Even as I type I 'm getting a wave of different emotions. At times, t was said as a supposed compliment and while it didn't happen everyday (I got this from time to time), but when it was said my heart would sink. All over again. I could go on about my experiences, but really my point being is that there is no comparing this type of insult to any presumed stereotype of geeks. It is NOT an insult and the want to have these comments to have such a meaning is merely an overblown sense of self importance. Great article Jim.
May 13, 2013 4:40 pm There are several reasons why these two MotherTruckers are multi-Eisner Award nominees. These single issue stories are one reason.
May 13, 2013 2:03 pm FATALE #14 FF#7 THE DREAM MERCHANT #1 looks interesting so I might pick it up. BQ: My mom would make me and my brother after-school snacks and whenever friends would come over they'd be shocked because their mom's didn't make snacks for them. :P
