I saw Superman Returns on sale for $1 a few Black Fridays back and I still thought it was $21 too expensive. You want me to take that movie off your hands, you're handing it to me along with $20 for my troubles. I didn't just dislike it, I was angered by it. I wanted to see Bryan Singer's Superman, and what I got was "Bryan Singer's Richard Donner's Superman, Except Based On A Version of Superman 2 That Was Never Released Or Even Finished And Oh Yeah There's A Kid For Some Reason - Now With Extra Jesus Metaphor."
Spider-Man 3 I could actually watch again sometime, because I actually kind of like the whole Dancin' Peter thing because that was the *exact* moment where you could tell that no one involved gave even one f--- anymore and gave the studio exactly what they thought they wanted. Bad movie? Sure, but Raimi & Co. probably bought some nice houses and boats on those paychecks and probably still laugh about it to this day.
LCS: Fearless Defenders #4 Rocketeer Adventures Treasury Edition - Love these IDW treasury editions, and both the mix of creators represented and the size of the artwork made this a no-brainer. Superman #207 - 30th anniversary issue and an 80 Page Giant to boot. Comic Book Creator #1 - New TwoMorrows mag from Comic Book Artist's Jon B. Cooke, who happens to be local, so my LCS did a launch/signing event for this; Jon's a very nice guy, and I got to see a preview of the Joe Kubert issue coming out this summer and it looks gorgeous.
Digital: Aw Yeah Comics! #1 - This was a lot of fun. If you liked Tiny Titans or Superman Family Adventures, this'll be right up your alley. If you didn't like those, see a doctor because there's clearly something wrong with you.
The Boston Comic Con organizers say the show will go on as planned, but they're taking to social media to ask cosplayers to refrain from bringing prop weapons. I'd go a step further and say people should maybe avoid costumes that will make them look bloody and severely wounded... might be a bit much for some folks to handle, and it would definitely be in questionable taste, especially since the Hynes Convention Center is right down the street from the site of the bombings.
Probably safe to say you can expect to get your bags searched as you go in, too.
Glad to see it's still going, though. It might feel a little weird and almost certainly a bit more sombre than it would've otherwise, but as the oft-memed British WW2 poster says, keep calm and carry on, you know? Boston's a tough town.
Anything involving Gaiman and Marvel that isn't the reprinting of Marvelman/Miracleman pretty much doesn't matter to me (unless he were to write, like, The Greatest Doctor Strange Story Ever or something like that). If there are big Angela fans out there and this makes them happy, then great, I'm legitimately pleased for them, we should all have comics we like. But for me, this doesn't seem like as big a deal as they're making it out to be.
