January 8, 2017 8:56 pm High School Teacher here, The youngifying has it's place for sure. My students love Miles Morales, and The new young Cyclops. They are huge on the CW shows. The ones that are big comic book readers are still into the traditional big time heroes. They don't know much about Champions yet, what I will say though is it's just as many girls as boys and people of color as there are white boys and I think more than anything that's what this is all about. That said I absolutely love Nick Spencer and Sam Cap.
December 5, 2016 5:59 pm Other than the children I think i'm living the same life as Josh, I moved from an urban area to an extremely rural gun toting one, I read humorous comics to lighten up my fear of the current political climate. I very much enjoyed Sam Wilson and Mockingbird until one got cancelled and the other got ripped apart by events.
October 29, 2016 8:43 pm It felt authentic to me. It didn't feel like a white person's idea of a black hero or black comic book show. It felt like a black creation and because of that I feel like it was bigger than a marvel tv show.
October 23, 2016 1:47 am Really smart people having a really smart conversation. Loved it. Also got the audio book for "God is disappointed in you"
July 17, 2016 10:51 pm So back to your question about colors and their significance in China, Red, Yellow and green are considered good luck, red being the luckiest, obviously it's also the color of the current "dynasty" then we have Yellow which is the Imperial color, only the Emperor was allowed to wear yellow in the forbidden city. I think we'll find Chinese Wonder Woman is in some way royalty.
July 11, 2016 7:09 pm Josh is the man it was a great as always though I missed Ron's constant laughter and Conner's dry sense of humor. Tom King is slowly becoming a giant in the industry, and you're right about Mark Millar. I'd rather read a cape story by him than anyone else. Especially Bendis.
June 27, 2016 6:08 pm When you guys were mentioning Bendis i didn't hear any of you mention Jessica Jones. That's a pretty successful show. I'd still pick Millar, his comics are amazing and Civil war...
June 15, 2016 2:21 pm Whenever someone mentions Tim Drake i just loudly proclaim "Yumm!"
June 15, 2016 2:20 pm I don't think that's true at all. Josh just isn't caught up in the nostalgia soup that is rebirth, Green Lantern was good and Flash is really good but everything else rebirth is just a redux of what they were post Flashpoint, it's not great, DC still hasn't fixed their creativity problem on many books. Josh is just the only one willing to say "Hey do something different"
June 11, 2016 1:29 am @Urthona, well Aaron is literally writing 5 amazing books a month. You're right that the villain seems eerily similar, but the whole using magic costs a toll thing, using the different magicians, and the way he writes strange as in his personality, is really good. It's the best thing Strange since Vaughn.
