    I loved the second half of the Scooby Doo gorilla issue featured not only the doom patrol, but flex mentallo.

    i said this last time,  but why are they still doing those DC/HB team ups? I guess someone must be reading them. It seems, based on flicking through a couple, they aren’t even doing the back up strips drawn in HB style anymore. 

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

    Forgot, I finally watched the borrowed copy of Ghost Stories that's been sitting over here for about a week. It was great. The second story was a little goofy but that was all forgotten with the third and the super grim reveals of the wraparound. Talk about twist endings...

    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.

  3. 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.

     

    Spoiler

    I will say that given the thematic build, I was a little disappointed they didn't pull a You're Next and have Laurie just eat him alive once he got into the house but I get it.

    Except they no longer want Iron Fist and Luke Cage...and Disney is getting into the streaming game now.

    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.

    I feel like this implies that people were asking for Quiet Storm and I have several questions about that.

    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.

    I guess if you're a completist? Maybe? Jesus why

    I'm perversely entertained by uniquely next level terrible comics. Needs to be on that Uwe Boll level of so terrible as to become strangely compelling in its own way though, so mediocre and plain boring stuff doesn't work for it.

     

    Sort of relatedly, they're putting out a trade of angel Punisher the same month.

    I haven't watched UFC in a few years but if they could guarantee me I'd get to see at least one loudmouth racist get his ass handed to him every show I would start shelling out for PPVs again.

    This. 

    Honestly, the fact that it turned into Conor losing and then his whole crew eating shit in a massive brawl is the most interested I've been in MMA since Rouseymania.

    Read the first issue of Border Town today.  I love it so much.

    It's really, really good. I'm hoping this Vertigo gen gets more attention than the last decade of cohorts. So many good books have gone unloved there.

  9. I actually just all around liked it. Superhero murder mysteries are interesting and the delivery is too. It's inconceivable that either Harley or Booster could kill some of the folks who are dead and it's all set to piece together from the aftermath. And King nailed a lot of the emotional beats along the way.

     

    I think it could turn out more Killing Joke than Identity Crisis: A great comic that nevertheless probably sacrifices more than it was worth.

    The only one Supes has known for years is Wally. They're the only pre-Flashpoint universe people.

     

    Sort of? Super unclear how the Superman Reborn retcon affected that, honestly. Pretty sure Clark now just remembers this timeline but it's been altered to mostly resemble his post-Crisis timeline with some post New 52 mixed in.
