August 5, 2013 1:36 pm This is terrible! I can't believe a well respected American tradition such as the pornographic industry is being linked to the unhealthy and addictive practice of hoarding small plastic dolls. This must stop now. ...Now where did I put my Rom: Spaceknight? I've got a lovely peephole bra and pantie ensemble for him to wear.
July 15, 2013 1:31 pm Wow! Three things I didn't know: 1. I had no idea Morrison wrote one of those Julius Schwartz tribute issues. 2. I had never heard of Eddie Campbell co-writing and painting a comic called Batman: Oder of the Beasts. 3. Chuck Austin wrote JLA!!! I'm going to have to hand in my DC fanboy membership card. Mind you, I was spending my pounds on Gotham Central, Green Arrow and Identity Crisis this week in 2004.

June 3, 2013 3:23 pm Classic! Absolutely classic. Although you need the panel before it of Guy shouting "I BITE!!!" to complete the magic.
June 1, 2013 6:20 pm I agree, Top Ten is an overlooked gem of a comic. I would have loved this to have Season Two in it, despite not being written by Moore it was brilliant (apart from the non Ha drawn special, which was rubbish). Mind you, this is a big Absolute anyway, with anymore pages I might not be able to pick it up.
May 28, 2013 6:10 pm The super villain's Dark Side Bar from the Bwahahaha era Justice League. Never will you find a more wretched hive of stupidity and villainy, with the chance of winning Quakemaster's power charged jackhammer in a poker game.
May 28, 2013 5:53 pm Noonan's reminds me of my local. Rough as hell, but the chance of drinking with some real characters. Guys that might fuck you up or buy you a drink depending on if you pass their drunken social tests...or don't.
May 23, 2013 12:03 pm I became fascinated by the character Black Bolt from having a 1977 set of Marvel Super Hero Trump cards., mainly because he trounced all the other cards. But I have never read any Inhumans comic. That is apart from their alternate versions in the Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual #1. Mark Millar and Jae Lee's re-imagining on the Inhumans is utterly brilliant, I could quite happily read an ongoing comic of those characters. Maybe I'll check out Jenkins and Lee's series.
May 5, 2013 6:21 pm I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Chinese influence on this film. I understand there was a substantially different cut released in China, and you could see the Chinese actors that would have had larger roles in the Chinese edit. Right at the beginning we are introduced briefly to a Chinese business man who is snubbed by Stark, and two Chinese Extremis guys appear at the end on the film. I wonder if we'll see the Chinese scenes as extras on the DVD release? Of course, with Disney/Marvel wanting to exploit the growing cash cow that is China, there's no way they could have presented the potentially inflammatory comics' version of the Mandarin.
May 5, 2013 5:55 pm Mrs Vinylhed and I took ourselves to see Iron Man 3 this morning, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked that we saw more of Tony Stark out of the armour. I've never read an Iron Man story with the Mandarin, but I loved Sir Ben Kingsley's turn. Compared to Iron Man 2 this was Citizen Kane, although it was about 20 mins too long. What interested me most was the Chinese influence. I understand that China had a substantially different cut of the film, and you could see all the Chinese actors who would have had larger roles. I wonder if the Chinese scenes might find their way onto the DVD release? I doubt it.
