Name: Kaarel Jakobson

Bio: An idealistic cynic, a hopeful pessimist, a stupid intellectual... Truly, BornIn1142 is a man of contradictions. Hey, is anyone actually going to read this? I'd be surprised.I'm a guy from Estonia (and I don't blame you for not knowing where that is) currently studying in Scotland. There's really not much more to say. Comics and anime are my two main interests, but I'm also an 'aspiring writer' in the same sense as half the Internet seems to be. Mostly novels/prose, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't loooove getting into the comics business. I'm a bit of a douchebag, as you'll notice.


I love the new X-Men status quo. I love the idea of so many mutants, major and minor, stuck together…

The first eight issues of Red Robin have been defined by two things: the very decent action, and the constant,…

December 11, 2012 5:38 pm Ever since I started reading monthlies on an ongoing basis - that would have been circa 2006, I believe - I've just rolled my eyes at Marvel editorial's completely idiotic idea that a story NEEDS characters to die in order to have "stakes." Every event book then and until now seems to have been written based off of a checklist where "character dies in order to make things dramatic" appears at least once. You would not believe how hard I laughed when Joey Q expressed the sentiment that they can't pull off character deaths too often, lest it get old and people lose faith in it. It hasn't always been easy to maintain my faith in writers' abilities and suppress then notion that I've been reading pointless schlock, but for the most part, I've just gritted my teeth and tried to enjoy stories by ignoring the occasional nonsense. This is a book that revolves entirely around that nonsense. Woohoo.
November 30, 2012 1:54 pm That's a damn nice Kraven. Love the shadowed face.
November 29, 2012 7:48 am I have to say, even though the art style doesn't match the show's perfectly, I am rather impressed with Price's work. There's quite a bit of detail to be found, including a whole bunch of subtle jokes and references in the backgrounds. I also noticed some pretty fancy panel-work during the face-off between the "Mane Six" and the changelings. Loved the shot with a look through the holes in the changelings' hooves. Oh yeah, and the hilarious expressions are a plus.
November 14, 2012 12:09 am "While Hopeless’ remarks might not bring comfort to everyone in that regard, you just might be surprised by his thoughtful considerations." The Hunger Games is really popular right now, so let's go with that! Everyone is Katniss! Yeah. Thoughtful.
September 4, 2012 2:37 pm Wrong Elasti-Girl, to be quite honest.
August 27, 2012 11:09 am That's actually been done in a brief fan comic that's probably better than most of Before Watchmen.
July 21, 2012 5:28 pm That Psylocke piece is amazing. Its one blemish is that bizarrely emphasized pokey nipple...
