  1. Man. Josh Williamson really is the stylistic heir to Geoff Johns at DC huh? Even took off with a long Flash run.
  2. I'm good thanks! I got out of habit checking the forum around the time I got into the habit of working seven days a week so oops. Anyway, apparently Van Sciver just posted a pic of Johns with podcast hype to stir shit up as he is truly garbage. Johns' path to being the 2000s John Byrne but only a writer returns to a slow boil.
  3. Geoff Johns hanging out with disgraced racist collaborator EVS in public again makes me wonder if Flashpoint 2: Electric Boogaloo is about to go the way of Generations.
  4. So DC announced today they're leaving Diamond. This is huge with massive repercussions and a lot of unanswered questions. One big issue is shipping. It's been noted that Lunar/UCS have pricier shipping than Diamond. The UK/Europe are especially hosed though...neither distributor has plans to set up local shipping hubs, so the cost of comics+shipping is going to exceed cover price, doubling at least the cost of any DC Comics sold there. Retaliation is also going to be a thing. On a small scale, I wonder if DST stops producing DC merch. Or further, if Diamond stops distributing toys and merch featuring DC Characters at all. Moreover, will Diamond cancel its contracts with Midtown and DCBS to retaliate for the loss of DC income and likewise to encourage shops to purchase heavier amounts of Marvel/Image/Dark Horse/Etc. since the two biggest can't anymore. On top of all that, Bleeding Cool is reporting that this is part of a AT&T purchase shakeup with the intent to phase out physical copy single issue comics in favour of digital serialization and a focus on graphic novels moving forward. Lots of aspects to this one.
  5. Rebirth Red Hood is shockingly good, honestly. The whole Ric Grayson thing is weird to me because I like a lot of the ideas driving it, but don't know how I feel about what I've seen of the execution. Planning to read from the start through the Gray Son arc this week to judge for myself.
  6. What's the size like on that? I've been staring at it at work for months. Also the JL Batman figure is a few years old but was an exclusive for DC Nation members and thus functionally US only. Thankfully it's finally getting an international release.
  7. I love statues but they're definitely pricey. I primarily collect the Batman Black & White line. Got between a dozen and 20 right now, can't remember the exact amount. Bigger statues I'm fussier on, but I have a decent few. At some point I gotta actually photograph my nonsense again. I did so at my previous house but it's been a while and I have more now (though not everything from the last place is on display)
  8. Tom Lyle has passed away from a brain aneurysm at 66. As someone growing up reading comics in the 90s, his work defined a lot of my formative books. Co-created Spoiler and the Scarlet Spider and worked on early Robin minis, Maximum Carnage, Clone Saga stuff, and I always loved Mutant X. Real shame. 66 is too young to go.
  9. Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Journal has reportedly passed away. Only 51. Hell of a shame. He left quite a mark on comics journalism and will be missed.
  10. Got my review in! If anything comes up for a bonus, I'll run it by as well.
  11. Watched my movie last night so I should have a review in by day's end.
  12. Joker is getting a whole mess of social media criticism leading to Todd Phillips now banning press from the world premiere, which he's further getting blasted for since his whole "Sneaking an art movie in the backdoor of a comic movie." approach would theoretically hold up to criticism. Everyone I know who saw it on the festival circuit says it sucks, fwiw. I'll probably end up seeing it in theaters due to both my nerd curiousity and my desire for WB to do this kind of art focused approach with other DC properties and creative teams but yeesh this looks like a mess.
  13. For those who wanted the Daredevil: Born Again Artist's Edition, but couldn't justify the money or space, the Artisan Edition dropped this week and it's basically got all the art goods you want, just at a larger than usual but not original page art size for $50 USD instead of the $100-150 the full size Artist Edition's go for. Big recommendation. Seeing the overlay processes is particularly fun.
  14. My first choice isn't on Netflix anymore so I'm trying to think up an alternative. This is complicated because, as a Canuckian, I may not have the same Netflix options. Within the next hour or so I should have one for you. EDIT: Sent.
  15. I'm in. Haven't done this in a few years, very excited.
