February 21, 2017 8:56 am Well if that's the case I would recommend a different FX show over this one. Check out Taboo. It's great, only 8 episodes and I'm pretty sure its only a miniseries.
February 21, 2017 8:54 am I loved loved loved Sex Criminals for the entire first volume but I also didn't care for #16. It has gone from a book with a ton of momentum to a book in which people just sit around talking. And it has gotten a little formulaic as well. It seems every issue someone tells Jon he's an idiot, he gets pissed and says something stupid, Suze gets pissed at him, they fight, make up, have sex, repeat next issue. And for a book that only come out once or twice a year now it's just hard to get excited about. And frankly Fraction's ego has gotten a little tiresome regarding this book. He talks in the recaps and letter column about it having way more theme and subtext than it actually does. The art is still great and the dialogue is still as snappy and sharp as ever but there's just no there there anymore. I'd drop it but when it's only one issue every 6 months or so I'll probably just keep buying it until they wrap-up.
February 20, 2017 9:49 am It's just a little confusing as you mention Marvel in your comment, and something about ad-versation, but nothing about DC. I think you kind of cleared it up for me. The Lobo thing was weird.
February 20, 2017 9:21 am What?
February 20, 2017 9:16 am Maybe try watching it before forming an opinion?
December 30, 2015 2:59 pm Do you think you're the only one who noticed the similarities with A New Hope? Practically every single review of the film mentions them. Did you think this was some sort of revelation? It probably took you what? Fifteen minutes to type that? Instead you could have just typed "This had a lot of plot similarities to A New Hope."
December 26, 2015 10:11 pm My theory on Phasma is that she's not actually a Stormtrooper, she's a Resistance agent. Think about her two biggest scenes. 1) Right after the battle on Jakku when she see's Finn with his helmet off she tells him to report to her command. The very next time we see Finn he is helping Poe escape. Seems like suspicious timing unless she helped Finn or at least planted the idea. 2) The scene you mention seems really strange unless she doesn't resist because she doesn't want to. She helps Han and Finn because they are Resistance...and so is she. That's my theory at least.
September 21, 2015 4:31 pm @conor: Haha my bad! Still working my way through the beast.
September 21, 2015 2:15 pm @connor: That's true, Rogue One will be covering more virgin territory. Also less sacred territory. How have you felt about the plethora of new Marvel Star Wars comics adding backstory to so many known character's backstories? I think they've been a little hit or miss. For instance, I am loving the Lando mini but am not really caring for the main Star Wars book.
September 20, 2015 10:36 pm @conor I agree with pretty much everything you said regarding Star Wars falling flat when it attempts to over explain things. It's just not the kind of franchise that needs that type of minutiae. However, I don't think any of that is reason to be concerned about the young Han Solo film considering that really none of the people that were involved with the prequels or EU works you mentioned will be involved with that film. I assume you're also not excited for Rogue One as that will be over explaining the capture of the Death Star plans?
