October 21, 2013 12:41 pm I very much like this "TV Season" format that Marvel is starting to implement onto their books. It's especially great for lower tier books, since if a book is on the verge of cancellation, the creators at least have a set amount of issues to tell a story. This way, a cancelled-but-brilliant series reads better in the future, as there hopefully will be less unintentional untied plot elements. Slightly related, I just started watching Chikara wrestling recently. It's an independent pro wrestling federation that utilizes elements of lucha libre and straight up comic book madness. For instance, one of the main storylines focuses on UltraMantis Black, a masked evil space insect, who refuses to relinquish a mind control device called The Eye Of Tyr despite repeated warnings that holding onto it after one use will bring upon catastrophe. But I digress...the reason why I bring this up is that they tell their stories in the same TV Season format that Marvel's apparently doing now. Unlike the WWE, who's stories roll on continuously, Chikara's stories have a beginning, middle and end that culminates in a Season Finale live event that wraps up that years rivalries and sets up a cliffhanger for the upcoming season. It's a very interesting way to go about pro wrestling.

September 2, 2013 12:19 pm I feel like I should write something a little more substantial. I don't feel like I can describe the importance of this site to me in mere words. It's alot more to me than simply a place where I can keep track of the comics I read with the pull list. To me, it was pretty much the basis of my online existence since...2008 or so? Most of the folks I interact with through twitter and other online avenues are somehow intrinsincly linked with me posting on this site. When I first started posting on the Rev3 forums, I thought this was just going to be another way to waste time. I had NO idea I would be making the friends I made throughout the years...and not just online friends, either. People who are a part of my life in a gigantic way! The community started out for me in 2008 simply as an online audience to expel my love for things like Nate Grey, but damn...it's like, Prax is the first guy I text whenever there's a concert I wanna see, and I now call Ali whenever there's some crazy Chinese place in Queens I want to try. I have some of the best friends of my life, and it's all thanks to being active on this site. And nowadays, it's not even just comics that we talk about when we hang out. Comics was just a primer, at this point. Nowadays, we all know about each other's lives in big detail, no matter how inane the facts are. I don't know why, but the giant conversation that I'll always remember was when we were all learning about the weird & questionable food phobias that Paul has. Even before we all MET met, it seems like we were already close knit. That live recording in 2008 that Ali mentioned above was where alot of us met for the first time, but it didn't feel that way. After the initial "Hey, you're Praxjarvin? DUDE! I'm CBC!", all of us just started BSing like this wasn't the first time our paths have physically crossed. This also is true about the iFanlords, who are all some of the most personable guys I've met and most engaging guys I've ever talked to. Just a little dumb thing to wrap this up that probably doesn't mean anything to anyone...I had a good time talking with everyone that night in 2008 at Legends (oddly enough, I didn't get to talk to Ron that much...people were swamping him. I guess they were enamored by his side burns?), and the next time I saw the iFancrew was that following NYCC. On the first day, I saw Josh lugging some camera equipment to his booth to set up, so I went over to say hi. Before I was able to launch into my "Hey, you probably don't remember me, but..." shpiel, Josh sees me and just goes "Oh hey, Chris". That always meant an incredibly huge deal to me throughout the years...not so much because the glasses dude who frequented my iPod remembered me, but that I realized that it was like the glasses dude who frequented my iPod was much more than the glasses dude who frequented my iPod. We, and the rest of the crew and my new friends, were something more than just simple online acquaintances. We're iFanbros. Paul...for fucks sake...we need to go to Kaiju Big Battel already. eFanboy 4 life!!!
September 1, 2013 5:11 pm Absolutely agreed about me being fantastic.
September 1, 2013 4:43 pm If this wasn't sad enough, that picture was taken on the day that I met most of my friends from this site in person.
August 29, 2013 9:47 pm See Crash. Not the shitty one...the one where people get sexually turned on by car crashes.
August 29, 2013 1:39 pm Sweet deal. I'm glad they're going for an actor with range instead of a voice to stereotypically go "I AM ULTRON BWAHAHAHA!"
August 29, 2013 1:36 pm He was known for a heck of a lot of Basic Instinct-esque sexual thrillers at that time (including one of my favorites, Crash), so yeah.
August 26, 2013 1:43 pm The prospect of easily buying new comics on an iTunes esque platform has gotten me pretty stoked. I had a gigantic move recently, and the thought of moving a ton of the mediocre recent DC titles I've accumulated over the years was a depressing one.
August 24, 2013 8:07 pm If Chris Pratt was able to get into the shape he's in for Starlord from the shape he was in, then that "He's not the right body type" argument has truly been killed and not worth bringing up ever again.
