July 26, 2013 6:28 pm Oh ish. Only if Wolverine could've waltzed with Mariko and sang "You and Me" only to be locked out of the room moments later would my life be complete. Good eye, man.
July 26, 2013 6:25 pm I thought your review was spot on, though. Very much on the same level as Iron Man 3. I find it hard to believe, though, that Mangold and company didn't realize how campy the villains were. It almost feels like the Viper woman/Silver Samurai scenes were directed by a different director. It was just so tonally jarring. If those last 30 minutes could have maintained that same tone, this movie would have easily been the best super-hero movie of the summer. Unfortunately, ADHD took over and it became a cartoon.
July 26, 2013 6:15 pm Blue Valentine reference? I saw The Wolverine last night and didn't pick up on any Blue Valentine references--and that's one of my favorite movies. Please do tell.
June 9, 2013 10:01 pm Kevin Smith's "Guardian Devil" and Frank Miller's "Born Again" bring out his faith background fairly well; however, this might have been a tad over-done in a few places.
April 19, 2013 7:28 pm @MockingJay2015 No, thank YOU for your response. Seriously, though, I was trying to call your attention to the fact that you assumed things about the author that were not true. That's the point. You used your experience--which I respect--to invalidate her experience and say that she was wrong. Other comments have dealt with her ideas; however, you have attacked her character, not only as an author, but as a person, as well. "There are women who face 10x more than you ever did, and this article doesn’t mention ANY of that. It’s about how hard your life is and it just rubbed me the wrong way...It's just an article about you." These statements are assumptions used to attack the author's character, instead of engage in a healthy--and respectful--conversation about her ideas. Even though it's the internet, we still should strive to be kind.
April 19, 2013 1:18 am As a high school English teacher, this seems like a classic author's intention vs. reader's interpretation debate. And since the author is still alive (Molly, you are still alive, right? Pop it. Lock it. Drop it. Cool) then we should probably agree that her explicit motives for writing this article--which she clearly communicated in the comments section above--trumps one's subjective interpretation. You may 'feel' your interpretation is correct, but it's a little bit--I don't know--over-confident to assume your interpretation trumps the author's now explicit--not implied--intentions. She may be able to communicate her ideas better in the future, but she has already clarified this in the comments section above.
March 19, 2013 6:38 pm If this is the future of comics, I wholeheartedly support it. Listen: there are going to be shitty print comics and good print comics. Likewise, there will be shitty digital comics and great ones--like "The Private Eye." It's all in the hands off the individual creators and how they use their chosen medium to enhance--not detract--from the story at hand. Furthermore, it is a great feeling to know that I directly contributed to the creators--and not Diamond Comic Distributors--to help them continue to create stories that I love. Maybe this is an illusion, but I feel like there is a relationship formed between creators and readers through ventures like panelsyndicate.com, an experience that, in my view, can' happen any other way. I can't drive to Brian Vaughan's (and Marcos Martin's, as well) house and hand him five dollars, but I can do so, digitally, for the next nine months. Hell, if a particular issue puts a wild hair up my ass, I can pay him ten or twenty dollars! To me, this is a great step forward for creator-owned comics, one which...I don't know.... help creators actually make money. Imagine that.
March 19, 2013 6:13 pm For a while, I've been a print only purist--mainly because I don't want to see the local comic shop experience fade away--but this is a comic that is more effective because it is digital. All the art is geared towards being read as a double-page spread, and I felt that I was much more in tune with each page as a result. Double page spreads in print form can be hit or miss depending on the title (see Young Avengers #1 vs. All New X-Men 5-7) and reading this in a landscape format--where every page feels like a double-page spread--really made for a much more enjoyable experience, one that I feel will be less effective (both visually and story-wise) in print format.
