March 22, 2013 9:38 pm This is great. This show is what helped me fall in love with the Batverse. I recently watched Batman: The Movie on Netflix with my six year old daughter and we had a blast watching it. It was just as great as I remembered it and, actually, better than I remembered it. One of my favorite parts of the movie was the insane riddles (and answers) and how fast Batman and Robin solved them!
February 25, 2013 2:50 pm Back issues is precisely why I use Comixology. Or for the occasional new series 99cent sale they have. I just bought the first 2 volumes of the new TMNT comic. It is a good series.
February 19, 2013 1:15 pm I've never been to SDCC but I don't think I would want, I don't know. SDCC just looks too crazy for me. I go the OTAKON (anime convention in Baltimore) and is really fun and second only to AnimeExpo in size, it's a big convention. Then I go to Baltimore Comic Con in the same convention center as OTAKON but it only takes up about 1/8 of the center. I love Baltimore Comic Con because it is small. The chance to meet and talk with so many great creators in a small setting like BCC is great. The experience there is so much relaxed and not being overly exhausted in the end is a big plus.
February 15, 2013 4:59 pm I agree with @kennyg that covers depicting something that doesn't even come close to occurring inside the book is pretty annoying. I would also say that I don't quite mind covers that are sort of pin-up style because in a way I would like to not know what is going to happen in the book. I want everything to be a surprise. Then again covers that tell you the general story that may take place is great as well. Something to the effect of "Spider-Man fired" and such. I do really like the blurbs on covers and I wouldn't mind seeing word bubbles being used more often in covers as well.
January 30, 2013 7:37 pm It's funny how in my young age I never cared much about the writing aspect of comics. It was all about the art and art and art; this was in the early 90's, so that should probably explain things. Now though the story and writing mean so much more to me. A good writer has the ability to shield art that I would otherwise think was subpar. The same could be said about characters that I would otherwise never bother with. I used to like The Punisher in the 90's and specially when JRJR was the artist for War Zone but lost the love for the character as I grew up. This review and your great appreciation of the writer is certainly giving me a reason to pick it up.
January 28, 2013 4:01 pm @JesseCuster Well, I'm not so much saying that people only don't like the movies because it is expected, but it seems to me that it's just cool to rip on them. and I'm basing this on pop culture and how much those three movies get picked on. Maybe I should say that it has become cool to joke about the movies' lack of greatness. and example I would use would be one of my friends: He would constantly go on about how he hates Superman and how the Death of Superman was stupid and whatnot. After days of listening to him I wanted to understand which parts he hated and why he hated The Death of Superman, so I asked him questions about it. He replies saying he has never read that story and has never really read any Superman books. I feel perhaps that is what is happening to episodes I - III of Star Wars.
January 15, 2013 2:01 pm Indeed. I'm not saying they were perfect films but I don't think they were as bad as most people say. And yes I might have been confused after my initial read through of the review. I read it pretty fast and at times it can be confusing when a person says "the first three movies." Depending on how you look at it the first three movies could be (eps I - III) or the first three movies (eps IV - VI), so yes at first read through I might have understood it as you liking the first three movies (ep I - III). Well, maybe there is one more person that has come out of hiding, sitara119, regarding their enjoyment of eps I - III, unless you are joking.
January 9, 2013 3:55 pm It's nice to know there are others out there that liked the first three movies (episodes I-III). I think people probably feel they have to hate on those three movies because it's what's expected.
July 3, 2012 1:01 pm Fatale is very impressive. The team of Brubaker and Phillips is outstanding. If those two are doing something together you can pretty much bet I'll be reading it.
April 9, 2012 9:08 pm This is in part do to the double shipping they are doing in most of their books, and I think Wolverine is one of them, but also they don't want to disappoint readers with late books, so they hire this random guys to fill in within the issue. Either way we complain: the books are always late or the books have to many artist (because the company wants to keep their books shipping on time). Oh, well, I have found it kind of annoying, especially when one of the artists art looks like a total novice is doing the art (the silver samurai parts) but the artist is doing something right since he is hired by marvel, right?
