    Morrison/Final Crisis fans not reading The Unexpected should be or get the trade when it drops. #6 ending spoilers. Steve Orlando is so awesome. EDIT: Further on Orlando being awesome, Electric Warriors #1 is a blast. Further on Morrison stuff, Sideways Annual #1 has Grant doing a guest spot returning to his Seven Soldiers as well as dragging the Blue Jeans Superman back into things for fun. It's a blast and worth the read.

    Finally saw Venom and the reports of it being an amazing accidental comedy pan out. My wife and I were both in hysterics over some of the ridiculous action beats and Eddie/Venom interplay. The lobster scene had me in tears. Not a great movie or anything but a great time.

    A PG cut, with a portion of funds going to a cancer charity, and new footage involving the kidnapping of Fred Savage for a Princess Bride scene? Yeah, okay they got me.

    Probably but whether it materializes before the heat death of the universe is another matter.

    I read an advance copy and it was good. Feels like Grant doing Grant in that it references a bunch of old continuity stuff to try and make a character thesis and a lot of stuff seems to be setting up bigger things later while still growing the world. Also it may as well be in its own canon because it doesn't really reflect the broader status quo. It's a lot of fun. I know he's only committed to 12 issues but if he did a Batman length run on this it wouldn't be a bad thing.

    So Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman have been regularly clowning on Twitter thay their Venom run is better than Watchmen. The end result? A Watchmen #1 tribute cover as a variant...by Dave Gibbons. I'm almost mad at how ridiculously that paid off for them.

    They're steady sellers in my shop. Some of the B-List DC characters have definitely outsold their main books with them, honestly.

    Thank you for this because I saw the stage play, loved it, and had no idea it was adapted to film. Some of what made it work will be lost (sounds and actions surrounding you via audience plants and such) but it's still got plenty going for it as a narrative.

    No real news to speak of, just thinking of recent events and wow it's amazing how much Batman's penis could destabilize an entire company.

    Look, I realize I may be the only person in the world who will say this, but I can't express how hyped I am to have the first half or so of Mutant X in trade paperback.

    Way better than DK2, not as good as DKR or Last Crusade. It's a lot of fun and the art is great. Really it's closer to a Superman or Justice League story than a Batman one though.

    I really liked the new Halloween but it did have some issues. It couldn't seem to decide whether it wanted to be gritty and brutal or slasher ridiculous at times and while it sets the stakes early there's a real mid-film lull. Still, the whole theatre was invested in the Strode women and there was real tension at times and some of the best shots I've seen in a horror flick in a while.

    I mean, they may just not want people to feel like they're investing in series that are doomed before they even air them. I wouldn't expect Netflix to say the partnership is done until the last scheduled season has dropped and been out for a bit.

    2002 RoH completists mostly, I'd guess with a smaller amount of mid-2000s US indie diehards. Although he *has* washed up in NOAH but folks wanting him for NOAH stuff seems less likely.
