    May 30, 2016 4:06 pm I couldn't really relate to your hate for Batman versus Superman, but after thinking about it for a couple of days, I think you voiced my opinion on this movie beter than I could have :-). The movie in itself isn't that bad, but it was boooooooooooring. There was nothing that made me even remotely invested in the story and the characters. A real shame, could have been a real fun story.
    March 27, 2016 4:43 pm By the way: i loved the podcast, lots of emotion going around :-). Now it's time to go listen to Pick of the Week.
    March 27, 2016 4:40 pm I'm kinda on the same page as Connor. I really liked the Batman and Wonder Woman stuff (loved the black & white picture of Diana in WW1). Ben Affleck does a pretty good job as Bruce Wayne and this movie also has the best appearance of Alfred to date).I found this variant of Lex Luthor a good match with the current timeframe of the movie (mad tech guy). The introduction of Aquaman, Cyborg and Flash was ok (although I think I prefer the TV version of the Flash, this one looked too much of a hipster for my taste), and we now know that Darkseid will be the main enemy in the JLA movie (saw the Omega sign and the para demons). Negative points for: - I think Zack Snyder hates Superman, why else would he manhandle him like this; - The dream sequences didn't add anything to the movie, even worse: it killed it's pace; - Doomsday CGI was one of the worst things I've ever seen in any movie; - Jimmy Olson was the CIA agent and got killed. WTF? And the appearance of a random Russian with the same name as KGBeast feels like cramming in as many Batman references as possible. All in all, I still liked the movie (even a bit beter the second time I watched it) and certainly didn't think it was a hot pile of crap :-). Could help but give at a positive review on Rotten Tomatoes :-).
    January 31, 2016 9:11 am Loved the first two episodes. I was surprised that they "killed off" Hawkman in the second episode, but maybe now Cisco has another change to ruff up the feathers of Kendra, so to speak :-).
    January 18, 2016 5:15 pm Hi Connor, I could really connect to your story. I had to make a decision some years ago (how strange, it was around the time my first son was born :-)). At that point, I had more than 25.000 comics, which were mostly gathering dust in a storage facility a few miles from my home. In the end I decided I would keep some and sell most of my collection.Well, kinda, anyway....I can also really relate to the strange feeling when making the decision to let go of the collection, in any which way you do it. For me it felt like the end of a period in my life. The mind says "why keep the books, you never re-read them and you probably never will", but the heart just can't let go.......it was a proces that took quite a few years to finally let go of my "treasures". Concerning the stuff I kept: 1. Some other series, I replaced the issues with Marvel masterworks en DC Archive Editions (Silver and Bronze Age Marvel) or omnibuses (for example Tomb of Dracula and Werewolf by Night). These I put in a bookcase in our living room (my wife actually was cool with that, because they add a lot of color to the room. The original issues I sold 2. I kept some around 10 long boxes with some of the series I really loved and some which were not readily available in other formats. For example: Marvel: Master of Kung Fu, Alien Legion, Sisterhood of Steel. DC: Vigilante, Jonah Hex, Checkmate, Atari Force, Mike Grells Green Arrow. Independent: The original Vailiant series, Grendel, Mage. And of course classics such as Batman Year One, Killing Joke, Long Bow Hunters, Secret Wars (the real one, with the Beyonder), Crisis on Infinite Earths. 3. I got some comics in e-format and I took a subscription to Marvel Unlimited on my iPad. 4. All the signed books and sketches made by artist, I kept. To sell the other stuff, i went to a lot of conventions. To be honest, I loved to do that! I went there with three friends and we always had a blast going to a con together, even if we didn't sell a lot of stuff on that given day. But it was also great to see people who bought the books get really excited about it, just the way I was when I bought books during conventions. It was like spreading the gospel of comicdom :-)!!! Good luck getting your books to California!! Regards, Dennis.
