    Wife loves Locke and Key. Hickman is either hot and cold with me as well. I love Manhattan Projects, but his FF run was just bad and boring. I don't care about the FF kids especially when they are handing out Infinity Gauntlets to Dr. Doom.

    Its not God Awful, but some many people were making it sound like it was the Second Coming of Kirby/Lee. I prefer Mark Waid's run with the FF taking over Latveria. I thought was actually genius and that does have the second coming of Kirby.

    I've heard some really good things about Saga, so I ordered the first two trades from instocktrades.com. Looks interesting.





    here is a preview from the first trade

    From New York Times bestselling writer BRIAN K.VAUGHAN (Y: THE LAST MAN, EX MACHINA) and critically acclaimed artist FIONA STAPLES (MYSTERY SOCIETY, NORTH 40), SAGA is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in a sexy, subversive drama for adults. This specially priced volume collects the first arc of the smash hit series The Onion A.V. Club calls 'the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make.' Collects SAGA #1-6
    Oh and BTW:

    Saga is so good. I got guardians, rocket racoon and hip hop family tree for free comic book day. My store didn't have Sherwood Texas which was disappointing. I wanted to read a Robin hood story in the style of sons of anarchy.

    Rick, you'll love Saga. I've yet to find someone that hasn't loved it at minimum. I have the single issues and I've re-read them so many times. BKV might be my favorite comic book writer ever.

    So I went to a yard sale yesterday and for .50 cents for each comic I bought X-Men 266 (Gambit's first appearance), New Mutants 87 (Cable's first appearance), Batman's A Death in the Family, 1st printing, and Wolverine 1 from his first comic book in 1982, and Wolverine 10 from the late 80s, which was Wolverine vs. Sabertooth, and an X-Men comic that I thought was Psylocke's first appearance, but it wasn't.

    I paid $3.00, the lot is probably worth $100+

    I love yard sales.

    Yea, when you hit the right one it is so nice.


    I'm through the first TP of Saga, and it is really good. I'll probably get through the next two by the end of the week. The SciFi elements are really cool. You can see some influences, but not so much it smacks you around with them. Little nods make me smile. I'll elaborate later.

    Decided to go through and read all of my unread comics that i've acquired since the fall and holy shit, this is taking me forever. What an awesomely awful problem to have.

    I'm about to get started on this series called "Scare Tactics", apparently about a monster band. Yes, a musical band made of monsters. Bought the full series for like $2 from my local shop, so let's see how good (probably bad) this will turn out to be.

    Just read Invincible #111, and I'm always reminded why this is my favorite comic series of all time. Seriously, if you're into real super hero type books, put all your emotions in a steel chest and read this book.

    I would suggest the two companions that are $30 each, it will save you some cash and they are easy reads for the most part.

    I'm now through the first three trades. So far I put this on par and maybe above the first three Y: the Last Man trades. Interesting to see how and where he takes it from here.


    BTW: Instock Trades is having a big DC sale. Many DC trades are up to 65% off. Link to site

    Anyone checking out Southern Bastards or Outcast?

    I bought Outcast but haven't read it yet, I know it's Kirkman's new series so I figured picking up a #1 first print might be wise. They've already rushed a 2nd printing, so the market might wind up oversaturated, but who knows.

    Southern Bastards is only 3 comics in and I'm really enjoying it.

    Manhattan Project is so good. GJ Joe/Transforms, the one Image did with Jae Lee was surprisingly good, yet most of their team ups suck. Now, the Cobra Commander figure in a Sky Striker that looks like StarScream maybe one of the best San Diego exclusives of all time.

    I just ran roughshod through the digital Injustice series.

    Simple, fun and just a whole lotta good times.

    What a review. I should be on a website. Or a forum.

    I don't know. It's really hard for me to operate like that. The art gets better, though starts off quite weak. Actually, there's rotating artists, one of them isn't that bad to be fair.

    The story is really interesting to me, but may not be for people who hate alternate reality kind of stuff or are suckers for continuity. But I'm a wrestling fan as well, so continuity obviously means bugger all.

    Maybe an 8 or a 9 out of 10? I liked it, but it might not be for everyone. I'm going to check out some of the other digital things.

    Extra half a star for Alfred the Butler headbutting Superman and laying him flat on the ground. I really enjoy the premise of the story, I'm not sure I've actually seen it tackled in such a way. We've seen things like "The Nail" where the whole universe would be different if the Kents had a flat, and Superman was born somewhere else... but this is basically, what happens right now, if Superman decides that the world's leaders are no longer capable of protecting/leading the world into peace. And it's not so black and white, we see a conflicted Superman, who doesn't always agree with everything that he's doing, but sometimes does it because it's the most effective way to do something, that will prevent the loss of a large number of lives.

    Is the Death of Wolverine story worth checking out, or is it as stupid, predictable and cheesy as the title suggests?

    It's alright so far from memory, I read the first three issues a couple of weeks ago (or maybe it was two) and it seemed to be pretty decent.

    The artwork is grand though.

    I didn't like the final one. Thought the first 3 were ok.

    Yeah the last issue was awful. The first three were pretty good though.

    DC spoiled the identity of the new Robin. It's sorta obvious. Not sure I like the twist involved though.

    Something tells me DC wouldn't have "spoiled" the story without some sort of twist coming...

    Just give me a swan song for the Burton/Keaton films. Keaton recently said that he'd definitely do another Batman film if Burton's at the helm. None of us is getting any younger, mother fuckers, so hop to it.

    This variant cover for Batgirl #41 got pulled because the social justice brigade threw a hissy fit:



    For those who don't know, it's an homage to "The Killing Joke", a classic Batman and Joker story by Allan Moore. In that story, The Joker shoots Barbara Gordon (who later becomes Batgirl) and paralyzes her.

    Here's the cover for "The Killing Joke" for reference:



    Of course, context doesn't matter to the perpetually outraged. I realize shit like this doesn't matter in the long run, but I think it's funny that these people who almost certainly describe themselves as "progressives" have disappeared so far up their own asses that they now advocate censoring art.

    I don't know if he did or not, but he planted the seed in Gordon'shead, driving him mad.

    That's the thing about Joker, comitting the crime or not was never his intention. His wanted to soundly defeat Gordon, which he damn well did.

    As for the cover, apparently the artist himself requested it be pulled. Lame. Caving to vaginas on social media needs to stop.

    He doesn't rape her, but after she's paralyzed he strips her naked and takes pictures to terrorize her father with. I'd classify that as sexual assault.

    I don't see anything sexual about the variant cover.

    Yeah, so lame. The cover itself is awesome and anybody who gets "offended" by it is just looking for something to be offended about.

    Anybody else reading Moon Knight? I think it's my favorite book now.

    Punisher has been pretty enjoyable as well.

    Do you think he would have asked for the cover to be pulled if the SJW's hadn't thrown one of their patented shit fits?

    Yes. Its not the greatest cover in the world. One, DC trying to get cash over something from 20 years ago is typical DC. Two, we don't know what he was thinking when he was drawing it. He could have been told, this what we want..Do it! He could have thought it on his own which is kinda unoriginal and now looking back on it thinks it was a bad idea. Lastly, he is the creator, he has a right to do with it what he wants. The SJW are not wrong, its a very disturbing cover.

    Yeah, he raped her and Batman kills him at the end. The Joker we see running around is a copycat that is why he cut off part of his face. Or not, make your own continuity. DC and Marvel don't give a shit about their own unless its to sell shit which is exactly the intent of this cover. It backfired. Good. Come up with something original.

    Excuse me lotjx, what isthe greatest cover in the world? That's a very aimless comment. And DC is in the business of making money w/ the characters they created. Why wouldn't they want to utilize that?

    The cover itself is awesome, and also very creepy. But all this talk about sexual undertones is totally ludicrous. It's a bummer Albuquerque had to request it to be removed because of all the bitching.

    DC's doing a Joker themed variant cover w/ 25 comics, and Albuquerque figured he would pay homage to TKJ:

    My Batgirl variant cover artwork was designed to pay homage to a comic that I really admire, and I know is a favorite of many readers. 'The Killing Joke' is part of Batgirl’s canon and artistically, I couldn't avoid portraying the traumatic relationship between Barbara Gordon and the Joker.

    For me, it was just a creepy cover that brought up something from the character’s past that I was able to interpret artistically. But it has become clear, that for others, it touched a very important nerve. I respect these opinions and, despite whether the discussion is right or wrong, no opinion should be discredited.

    My intention was never to hurt or upset anyone through my art. For that reason, I have recommended to DC that the variant cover be pulled. I'm incredibly pleased that DC Comics is listening to my concerns and will not be publishing the cover art in June as previously announced.

    Did he show any indication of not wanting his art to be used before the outrage started? He can do whatever he wants, but it feels like he was bullied into this position. Has there been any indication that he requested the cover be pulled because he felt it wasn't "original"?

    There are plenty of disturbing comic book covers. Where was the outrage over this one:

    I just read the Killing Joke for the first time a few months back, great story and I think this cover art is incredible as well. Pisses me off more than anything though when an artist caves in, artist expression should be respected unless it's extremely tasteless. Do I want to see a painting of Adolf Hitler gleefully burning Jews? No. This cover is awesome, I'd get that shit framed.

    You can draw whatever you want. They can sell whatever they want. Why would they pull it? Because they don't want bad PR or lost sales. Is it art when it's about money?

    Why wouldn't it be? You don't believe art and commerce can intersect?

    I honestly don't believe the bad PR would have stuck. I'd surmise that most people either don't give a shit or weren't offended and that the people who are flipping out over it will forget about it in a few days once they find a new cause to hashtag about.

    Yeah, but it's not the art being censored, it's just not being mass produced and sold. That's the decision.

    I mean it's playing right into the common complaints about the way women are treated in superhero comics, so they could have seen it coming, but this will be the most attention the comic will have got since she grew her sexy legs back.

    I don't see a problem with superheroes being "sexy". I'd personally like to see a comic about dumpy out of shape heroes, but I can't imagine that being a mainstream success.

    Yes. Rodger is right. It is a marketing ploy now. Again, we have no idea who came up with the cover either the artist or the editorial staff. What the artist can do whatever he or she wants with their work. People complaining about censorship on this are wrong. Its not about censorship, its about an artist putting out a piece of work, a part of the audience rejecting and rethinking the work. Everyone should get a first draft.

    Best Cover is Amazing Fantasy 15 or Batman 404 or I don't know the Killing Joke cover, they are ripping off.

    I'm behind on it. I bought Daytripper but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. It's also been on my tablet for like a year. I'm bad at reading comics. I tend to just binge them and stop for a while.

    Also, the people bitching about the Batgirl cover are not the same people who buy Batgirl. Just like when they bitched about video games that they don't play.

    Are you really this dense? Nobody was ripping anything off. And we know what came first. Albuquerque wanted to pay homage, so he did. He wasn't instructed to draw it by anybody. I guess you didn't care enough to read it?

    Absolutely. Just redditor/4channers that have nothing better to do than to be outraged over nothing.

    Redditors and 4channers? You're just saying Internet groups now. If you want to choose the right group you'd say tumblrs. They're the current one for these sorts of things.

    Reddit is too big to just pigeonhole like that. There are some vile and/or obnoxious sections, but there's plenty of interesting stuff as well.

    I've stopped reading comments on youtube completely because of people claiming to be reddit405blahblahblah or redditsuckmyballsporchdick and all they do is rip apart every fucking thing that I actually enjoy watching. Every comment I've ever seen posted by a supposed redditor has been nothing but complaints. And they say that because they are redditor so and so, everything they say is truth and fuck everybody elses opinions. I wish youtube would just turn off it's damn comments all together sometime. And the issue with this batgirl cover is only an issue because of people who have sand in their vaginas. I used to have a picture of Alice Cooper hanging on my wall in my office with other little pictures. This particular picture was 2 x 3 inches and it was of him and Leann Rymes where he's pretending to choke her. He does this on request with anyone who ask for pictures with him. My boss at the time, told me I had to take it down because it was degrading to women. So, I printed a picture of Alice choking a male fan and put it in it's place the next day. I still got in trouble because now I was promoting violence. Can't fucking win anymore.

    Redditor Youtube comments have gotten so out of hand, Firefox has an app... an APP... that filters out Reddit comments. It's a godsend.

    Hey, every once in a while there'll be a youtube comment that's absolute gold. It's a rare occurrence though.

    My daughter likes to watch Disney egg surprises on Youtube. Its all cute and kiddy centered. I scrolled down one time to see the comments. Good God, we have devolved.

    I've read nothing but a bit of New Avengers for the last month here and there while moving house. It's immense, but I am missing out on everything else

    the people on twitter throwing outrage around for the sake of it are awful, but the creative team behind batgirl thought the cover was completely inappropriate for their comic and was never approved by them.

    Was it really that bad though? Storm in a tea-cup.

    You guys need to learn to park your account when you're not going to be using it for a while.
    Home > Settings > Account Parked > Yes

    So this stops happening, granted not all are Rajah people:


    I have 4 invites but I'm not sure it will let you make another account, if it does you'll probably need a different email. PM me and I'll try.

    I was gutted when I read it. Didn't expect it at all, and almost got a little misty about it. Was like - "Whoa."



    It's been one of my favorite pulls every month. Love the artwork, and the writing has been fantastic. Highly recommend.

    I am ashamed. Sorry Bert.

    Your PMs are full up by the way.

    I don't suppose you know a way to get my account un-fucked? Like a donation or something?

    You might be able to get it undisabled.

    Go here, use your site username (GoodKingAlf) for the nickname and then ask them to be undisabled and see what they say:

    The idea of having to park your account if you're not going to be using it regularly seems absolutely ridiculous to me.

    I understand it, every private torrent site I know is like this. Waffles, what.cd, sceneaccess, torrentleech, they're invite only and have user limits. If the user isn't being active then they make room for someone who will be.
