July 29, 2013 1:42 pm Just curious, wasn't the Napster for stealing books just Napster? Files are files, now matter how you share them.
July 27, 2013 5:01 pm At least three reasons: 1. He's a character who has been very much attached to his original creator, in this case Alan Grant, and it seems it sometimes takes a few years to throw that yoke (Fantomex and Quentin Quire for instance). 2. He's a highly political character (thus a constant source of potentially unwanted controversy) whose creator has nonetheless refused to state which side of the political divide he is supposed to be on. He has been portrayed as both a hard-core socialist and a free-market rationalist over the years and so noone is probably sure exactly how to portray him correctly. 3. Isn't his character originally a little kid dressed as an adult (thus the strange body shape in the original comics)? It can lead to some iffy situations when you have a child being portrayed as a bloodthirsty criminal and/or being chased down and beaten up by the adult Batman.
July 24, 2013 3:05 pm Random thought on the issue of super flight. Since watching the film, what struck me was how he initially leaps like classic 1930's Superman before full on flying in the more traditional sense. For some reason that got me to thinking perhaps he is basically swimming in the air. It is also pointed out frequently that not only is Krypton a larger planet, it is also much harsher than Earth, with a much thinner atmosphere. In this sense, perhaps Clark is able to utilize his Kryptonian speed and strength to basically tred air like we would water, we just don't see much of the motion because its either a static comic page or a brief shot in a film.
July 15, 2013 10:59 am Why does Jim hate this so much? As someone who has never really understood the seemingly evergreen attraction of a slice-of-life comedy that seems stylistically cheap and utterly trapped in the early decades of the last century, this kind of dramatically alternate storyline would seem like the perfect shot in the arm (of course not one large enough to actually get me interested in reading it).
July 13, 2013 2:34 pm They're probably going with the slow burn model. That way, they can cancel the show one season before they release all the cool stuff à la Green Lantern.
July 13, 2013 2:30 pm Yeah, Pyg as an eco-terrorist was somewhat disappointing. He really isn't the greatest choice for an animated kids show considering Morrison specifically created him to be truly demented and disturbing to an audience long since jaded by Joker and the likes. In the comics, he mutilates men into becoming mindless petticoat drones, mainlines PCP, and hangs out with a man who may or may not be Satan. In the show, he's an eco-terrorist who makes doctor puns and themes himself off Canterbury Tales. Since they're going obscure, they didn't have to try something that necessitated such extreme changes.
June 28, 2013 11:58 am At this point the red is more signature than the purple really. 7 red vs 4 purple.
June 25, 2013 1:20 pm If one were to rate all four Before Watchmen hardcovers, what would the order be? Theres Minutemen/Silk Spectre, Comedian/Rorschach, Nite Owl/Dr. Manhattan/Moloch, and Ozymandias/Crimson Corsair/Dollar Bill.
