  • Re: Movie News: Avengers 2

    PS- An Avengers trailer using a creepy version of a Disney song? Cheeky Joss Whedon. Well-played.
  • Re: Movie News: Captain America: Civil War?

    In the past, it has been argued on the forum and on the show, that the movies don't help sell the comics. And that might be the case when it comes to periodical ("floppy") issues in the shop. But I think that has long NOT been the case in the book and now digital markets.

    A case in point-- look what simply a RUMOR of an upcoming movie has done to sales of a certain seven year old Marvel story. (And I saw reporting that a few days ago, it got up to #2 on the overall graphic novel charts on Amazon)

    My biggest problem with Gotham is that I catch myself staring at Camren Bicondova. SHE'S 15 FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!

  • Re: What's Great Right Now?

    This might be premature, as I have only read the first two issues of what is going to be a 16 issue thing or something like that, but so far the "Fire and Stone" series of interconnected miniseries, based on the 20th Century Fox properties (Aliens, Predator, Aliens Vs. Predator, Prometheus) at Dark Horse has been great.

    I've long been a fan of Dark Horse's work on these properties, going all the way back to the B&W Aliens stories in DHP in the 80s. I haven't read everything they've done in those years. And quality has varied wildly. But it seems they have been less busy with these licenses the last few years, and I like that they are making a big push to get them going again. And to judge from the first two, they are off to a strong start.


    I was wondering. I'm not in a position to add another event and I know that there's no way I'll be able to just dabble in that world. Maybe one day....
    I'll follow up once things are further in to say if it stayed good.

    Also, though it is early to know this yet, too, but I think they have set this up so that you could only choose to read the minis individually as their own things. They seem to share some of the same locations, and I am guessing there will be some cause and effect connections, but so far the Prometheus and Aliens minis are set in two different times, so I am guessing they may not directly intersect.
