September 9, 2010 12:30 pm I love the camaraderie and feeling of Brotherhoood (or sisterhood)  that comics provide.  I have moved cities numerous times finishing my degree and I always have a home base at the local comic store. My best friend in the world started as just my local shop owner,  now if I can just meet the right girl in the local shop...

Thou didst not reckon with the might of Thor, knave! 



April 2, 2009 3:44 pm @ohcaroline-  I honestly don't know if that is whats going on in the Gaiman story. It seems set in a different time and place than the current DCU. It is a Batman tribute, but more of an abstract death of the character for all time, instead of Superman or Hal expressing the loss of their friend and colleague. (if that makes sense)  Or maybe I'm not getting something. Thoughts?
April 2, 2009 12:36 pm Thinking of Requiem makes me wonder where the Batman tribute or memorial scene is. We know he's not dead but Superman was holding his smoldering corpse and for all they know he is as dead as disco.  Seems like DC needs to sell it a little better. Requiem was great though.

I should send you the neglected pillow that my dog feels is beneath her as well.

   "Do you need a bodyguard? I'd die for you."

 I'm just curious what restrictions there will be on which "dead" characters will join the Black Lanterns? Is there some other factor besides lack of life that qualifies them? I say this because I see a potential to just magic wand every death that has occurred in DC history.

You are fantastic and I hope you realize that.

Wadewilson wins in my book with:

Garth "P" Ennis   .....rofl

March 10, 2009 12:15 pm Excellent points!  Probably the greatest compliment I can give the movie is that it will now enhance my reading of the book.  Even though I have read the book many times, I never had the proper frame of reference for Dr. Manhattan's character.  I couldn't properly imagine how a godlike being would act and talk as he loses his humanity.  Watchmen the movie, I feel nailed it, and now when I re-read the book I will enjoy it even more.
May 23, 2008 3:52 am I too have had this same debate about the portrayal of women in comic books. However, I quickly realized that I don't know a single man that looks like any superhero, and I'm not sure that some of the muscles portrayed even exist on a human body. So when you look at both perspectives you see that all these characters are the sexiest and peak physical perfection that no male or female actually achieves. (at least thats what I tell myself as I down another TWINKY)
