January 19, 2013 10:54 am After all these years of your pod and vidcasts making my working life a far more bearable existance, it's incredibly sad to see you go. The three of you have become an established part of my comic loving experience, and until I managed to meet and make some very fine comic loving friends (which was harder than I expected and only really kicked off last year) it was you guys who I shared my passion with. However, I have to congratulate you and wish you a great future in your new position. As for Paul, well, I've always felt he made a fine 4th Beatle and was the perfect fill in for when one of you guys were unavailable. He'll never be a Ron Richards but he'll always be a Paul Montgomery and I can't think of a single better person to take over your role. We'll welcome him with already established open arms. But, hey, don't be a stranger, Ron. When you've got the time we'll be most happy to hear or see you join the guys again as a special guest presenter/reviewer. All the best, sir!
December 20, 2012 11:39 am Superman better not push too hard or he'll end up eviscerating poor Santa, if not making his torso explode. :-(
October 5, 2012 11:35 am I am in the UK (jolly old London) so have used the right connotation of 'geezer'. :-)
October 5, 2012 10:37 am Some wonderful sketches there but, and I know I'm being a pedantic old bugger here, it's Frankenstein's monster (no matter what DC say). Frankenstein was the geezer who created him, innit!
June 21, 2012 9:57 am At the tender age of 11 I bought 2000AD issue 2 and encountered Dredd for the first time and have enjoyed his many exploits and the amazing world of Mega City 1 over the last 35 years. I have to say that this trailer leaves me totally and utterly cold. Considering the vast amount of potential storylines they could have used it's a shame that this seems to be just another shoot 'em up with a crazed villain in a big ol' building which really, is such an old and over-done storyline (Die Hard, anyone). I'm totally underwhelmed by this and only great, great reviews will make me consider going to see it. :-(
March 8, 2012 8:32 am I believe that, with his wonderfully complex and mature superhero stories (such as the Fantastic Four) and his mind-bending, challenging creator owned material, that Mr Hickman is the spiritual successor to the great Warren Ellis. There has to be such in every generation!
February 9, 2012 5:05 am This would be a brave and brilliant move if Marvel left things like this as it's so unusual to have a complete story, done and dusted, with any Marvel character. After all, Marvel still have the 616 and Ultimate versions of our beloved Frank, so there's still money to be made from the character. It's a shame, though, as this version of the Punisher was the first (and only, until I get round to reading Rucka's run, maybe?) version of the character that I ever liked (prior to this I thought he was a cheesy and terribly one-dimensional idea). On the whole I preferred Ennis's run to Aaron's (there was something far more gritty and real and nasty to it) but, being a Scalped and Preacher fan, it wasn't difficult to soak in and appreciate Aaron's run. Let the man Frank rest in peace, though. He's done his (psychotic) duty.
October 11, 2011 10:35 am Slightly underwhelmed as there were no BIG set pieces. I mean, where's the helicarrier, where's the real feeling of destruction and mayhem (other than a few cars blowing up). Is Loki the only BIG BAD? I want to see something other than a human figure raining down destruction upon our brave boys (and girl). Still, I'm hoping later trailers amp up the action.
