September 29, 2013 12:14 pm I don't know if it's the fact that this last few years has been what I consider to be the best age of television ever or that I'm just older and expect more, but I was really disappointed in the first episode. The car thing was obvious, the characters had no foundation, even the bomb agent that was picked to lead does not have any of the charisma necessary for his role. The dialogue was just not good and the plot was average at best. The computer girl is a clone of the girl from Arrow with the same basic mannerisms. Overall I understand this is supposed to geared towards families, but even my kids were already asking where their DSs were after the first five minutes. ONCE upon a Time has the same production value, but at least the whole family is invvolved with the characters. I'll stick with it for two more episodes if I don't get anything then I'm dropping. I know it's possible to do a solid show of this type because they did pull off an amazing first season with Heroes, I just hope they don't start where Heroes ended with predictable stories and weakened characters you don't care about. For now Breaking Bad is the one to watch, (so sad it's ending)

July 21, 2013 11:43 am Well seeing as how we know for sure it won't be like the recent series arc (phew!) I am pretty excited to see Ultron as a villain for the Avengers. He's a perfect villain because he not only is scary looking but is an intellectual challenge for Tony Stark and Banner as well. My main question would lie in how they are going to insert the origin of the character since they have yet to introduce Ant Man yet. I would assume that Pym is going to be a side character to spark the plot so we can roll into the Ant Man Film after the movie is released. I'll be honest, I really excited for the Marvel films, the hype is certainly there, but Superman/Batman is definitely something I'm looking forward to seeing. I just wish Warner Brothers could spark the same magic that Disney does with its licenses. Marvel blew them out of the water this year. I mean, they didn't even have a booth at C2E2 and I thought that Marvel was able to dominate them at that con as well.
April 16, 2013 5:56 pm I'll give the effects the chance, but honestly, I wasn't expecting the Electric star mask or anything. This'll do spider...this'll do.
April 9, 2013 7:51 pm I remember there was a great cover from either the 80's or the 90's of Superman as a werewolf, I don't think he becomes one so it doesn't really apply here, but I had to mention it because it is a bad ass cover. YOu can see it here. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_6xoH967aC00/TU3sFVpKUcI/AAAAAAAAcsg/JZSRUZTMJ3U/s1600/reign113.jpg
April 8, 2013 9:15 pm Age of Ultron so far has a lot of great art and wonderful detail. But honestly, there hasn't been a fantastic story moment for me yet and we are already on issue 4. It feels like I was reading Secret Invasion all over again with no real story being revealed until issue 5 and nothing really happening yet. Yes I knew She Hulk bites it, but we really havent had enough story to care since most of it is huge pictures and spurts of people complaining to each other about how bad the end of the world has become. Cap's incoherent " self pity in the corner thing" doesn't have much weight and I find myself not caring about these New Avengers characters rehashed from a few years ago. I love all the great work Bendis has done, but really aside from his Avengers Disassembled work and the Dark Reign stuff which I enjoyed, his events really leave you wanting more. He will always be great at his character work with young coming of age heroes (All New X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man) but these event books just don't suit him well. I'm always one to say stick to what you're good at. If Marvel wants to really succeed at the event stuff again, pay MIllar some cash and get him to do something because Civil War was really the last event that had some impact. Or get Abnett and Lanning to come back and do another Cosmic Event for us. Annihilation was great and had lasting repercussions that make the characters we are enjoying some much now all the more interesting.
March 16, 2013 1:04 pm I wait for the DC issues to drop a dollar after their initial release to save money, but aside from the books I love from DC I buy everything digital. Marvel on the other hand has no love or mercy for prices online so while I like to read digital better then paper (Face it, it's easier and you're carrying all your books with you at all times so you don't just have to wait till the crapper to read. Especially if you're a collector and like your books pristine unread it works out too.) I buy the Marvel books and use the free digital download feature. But 3.99 for a brand new digital issue is really steep. I think back issues that are 20 plus years old that Marvel has already made their money on (And these things are STILL selling.) should be .99. That would only make sense, they've made their money.
December 11, 2012 10:07 pm Goose bumps galore. I haven't felt that was about a Superman movie since I first heard John William's score in the first one.
November 9, 2011 9:33 pm I've been buying all my stuff digitally and through some apps they allow the rating system, Action Comics had the most ratings at around 1200 when I bought it, might have shot up from there.
November 6, 2011 12:01 pm The only reason I see a 3.99 price point is because of the print industry. Action Comics 2 was 3.99 when it was first released and now is 2.99. It's only a matter of time when they see that 1.99 is going to be the ultimate best price point for everything digital and it will bring in more readers willing to risk a new title. I also am almost completely digital with my comics now except for Iron Man which I have been collecting in floppies since I was 8. No more crazy long boxes I never see and I don't have to worry about rushing to my shop worried my book will sell out. Only thing I wish Marvel or DC could do is offer subscription prices. $22.00 for twelve issues is their going price now, why can't they offer that through digital?
