September 13, 2012 8:01 am Best issue yet. In a loaded week, this is my POW
September 11, 2012 8:29 pm As much as I love Alan Davis and classic Thor epic stories, I think I'm done. Fraction using the words "burn", "blaze", or "flame" on every single page last issue was enough. Looking forward to Jason Aaron and Ribic.
September 11, 2012 8:27 pm Mitch, amazing stuff. This is one of my top 5 current ongoings, congratulations on the great book.
August 14, 2012 7:05 pm Isn't there another side of this of internet message boarders getting outraged and self-righteous about everything? Same thing seemed to happen on the Black Kiss POW podcast with Josh's comment.
August 14, 2012 6:58 pm Even if this series ends with Uncanny Avengers being the spiritual successor, there's something to be said for finishing a series, giving it an ending, and signing your name at the bottom. Don't you wish Astonishing ended after issue #24 and Giant-Sized #1?
August 14, 2012 6:53 pm @Ken - Yeah for the first time in a long time they've gone back to having actual lineups, I guess right now it's just that the quality isn't where it was back then. It definately seems more all over the place but that might just be my perception. Cyclops not acting like Cyclops for a very long time might have something to do with it but that's a whole different discussion. You can put Uncanny X-Force head to head with almost anything in X-Men comics history though, and Wolverine & the X-Men (while a little too wacky sometimes) is one I'll jump back into after the AvX crossover. I probably just have relaunch fatigue, they had it so perfect back then and Axel Alonso and co. took a cleaver to it. I want Kyle & Yost back.
August 14, 2012 3:56 pm Agreed. Pre Messiah Complex, they had 4 core titles + Astonishing and all 5 had unique teams and unique stories. Then they had to go and fuck it all up with constant relaunches
July 21, 2012 5:43 pm Just to clarify, I give him a pass for 300 because it is what it is, its an eye candy, adrenaline movie, and it passes that test. It's okay if it's a music video, it's kind of supposed to be that. But Watchmen.... I've seen many bad movies, but I think that was the one that made me the angriest. When you first saw that big blue dong flopping on the screen, I wanted to scream "WE GET IT!!!"
July 21, 2012 5:37 pm In my opinion, Watchmen is one of the more brutal adaptations ever made. I remember when he first got the film, he talked about it looking like more Taxi Driver than 300. I thought it looked more like it took place on Mars than 1985. Not to mention the point of Watchmen being "what if real world human beings dressed up and fought crime?" and he turned his into leather/latex, kung fu, and what looks to be super strength. Not to mention all the slow motion, doggystyle, and unnecessary violence. I don't think any of the actors were any good, they all felt like actors reading from a script instead of characters. To me that reflects on the director, albeit maybe less than the cast. I LOVED 300 when I first saw it in the theater, but we were all rolling our eyes at the dialogue. Although there was something very entertaining about seeing McNulty play the world's biggest scumbag. Now if it's on tv, I'll jump in for 2 or 3 of the fight scenes but that's it. The movie has no substance because Snyder would rather make music videos than movies With Snyder every scene is stylized, everything is slow motion and matrixy, the violence is over the top, and the sex is even more over the top. If a 13 year old boy understood how to frame a scene and make a movie, this is what it would look like. ...and you're going to be able to see Superman's cock through his suit
July 21, 2012 4:49 pm Snyder is such a hack, not looking forward to this
