Re: Favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe character?

Chris Evans, easily.

It's funny, but with both RDJ and Chris Evans as soon as they announced the casting I KNEW they were going to be great in the roles. I could see something in Evans' portrayal...

Re: DC Black Label

The proportions are all off. His legs (especially his upper legs/thighs) are too long. His arms are slightly too long. He really looks like a 21 year old kid dressing up as Superman, not the real...

Re: Industry Rant

The whole industry has been mismanaged for over 30 years (there's plenty of blame to go around). If not for the huge success of these movies Marvel and DC would have gone out of business years ago,...

Re: Recommend 70's or 80's DC Superhero Titles...

Superman in the Seventies is garbage as a TPB collection. The stories look and read like Superman stories from 1964. The stories collected in this book are simplistic and clearly aimed at 12 year...

Re: DC Black Label

That wasn't true until about 15-18 years ago.

His work on ASM, Iron Man, and X-MEN was really good, especially with Frank Giacoia or Bob Layton inking.

Re: DC Black Label

I used to love Romita Jr's art, but his style changed 15-20 years ago as he made a conscious effort to separate his style from his dad's. He took a more modern approach that made his work less...

Re: The Rookie (ABC) -- S: Nathan Fillion -- from the Producer of Castle

Damn. I did not see that coming. Aside from being wrapped up a bit quickly (that could have been a two parter) that was a great episode.

This really has developed into a top notch cop show.

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

Yeah, Stan Lee, John Romita, and Jim Mooney had a crazy idea to do a Spider-Man Film Noir on the printed page, and that was the late 60's Spectacular Spider-Man #1. The art looked amazing - the...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

Bummer about this one (Showcase Vol 6) - that series is apparently in black & white. No color, no sale. (It's not like they were originally in black and white and colorized later on, these stories...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (D: JAMES GUNN!!!!)

Well, enough time has passed and Gunn has remained clear of anything remotely controversial since his (temporary) removal as director, and since he did make a mea culpa that was rather well worded...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

I am looking forward to the Neal Adams books, and I'll get the Gerry Conway books (he's great), and maybe some of the others.

I just wish they would or could do more numerical Omnibus or...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

And that's a partial solution, but for those of us who want chronological, numerical collections with all the parts of the stories included - we're out of luck.

Having said that, I'll buy what I...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

The problem that contract has created, though, is that if they want to do chronological/numerical order collections without skipping issues or parts of longer story arcs they have to get ALL of the...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

Yeah, but it doesn't help the artist when they make zero money off their older work because the royalty rate is so high that the publisher can't afford to publish the reprints/collections.

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

Bummer about the royalty thing. Looks like the contracts designed to help the creators really screwed them.


Well, I'm still looking for the best of what's available. I did order these...

Sounds like they're just sitting on properties that could be generating revenue. That sucks.

Re: Captain Marvel (Boden/Fleck, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I liked the movie. Not top tier, maybe lower middle tier MCU, but I love the MCU so that's not a bad thing. I'd give it a 3.75 if that were an option here, but it isn't so I gave it a 4.

But...

Re: 70's & 80's Batman TPB's

Hmmmm...

How is it that Marvel gets this stuff right and DC doesn't? It can't be that hard to put out collections that are chronological/numerical in order.

Having said that, I now get why I...

70's & 80's Batman TPB's

OK, as I'm collecting various TPB's, Omnibuses (Omnibi?), and Masterworks, I'm still looking for specific titles for some characters and eras.

For this thread, let's focus on Batman.

The era...

Re: Castle Derrick Storm Graphic Novels

The first two were co-written by Brian Michael Bendis and Kelly Sue Deconnick. Now, Bendis I've heard of, and my impression is that he has a good reputation. Deconnick I've never heard of. ...

Castle Derrick Storm Graphic Novels

So I found the first two Derrick Storm graphic novels at a great price, and being a big Castle fan I immediately ordered them.

And I read the first one last night. It was really good. The art is...

Re: Recommend 70's or 80's DC Superhero Titles...

I believe so. Parts 2 & 3 have an Elseworlds logo on them. The story premise is very interesting. (I ordered 2 & 3 on ebay for $4.74 total shipped - not great shape, but not too bad.)

But I'm...

Re: Recommend 70's or 80's DC Superhero Titles...

So there was a gas leak in the street outside work today, so I couldn't get in the building. Given an hour and a half of free time, what to do??

Go to Southern California Comics in Clairemont...
