  1. Turned out the Goblin Formula also gave him a Wolverine-style healing factor, which allowed him to survive being impaled by his own glider. He escaped from the morgue after killing someone with a similar physique to switch for himself, fled to Europe, and spent the next however-long-it-was in comics time orchestrating basically every shitty thing that happened to Peter in the ensuing years, including being the mastermind behind the Clone Saga nonsense.
  2. Middle-aged Peter David did okay, though.
  3. For people in an apartment situation, a headphone amp and a set of headphones might be a good option. Assuming you've got a turntable with a built-in preamp like the AT-LP60, get a quality headphone preamp like this Schitt model, which is good enough to make even a $25 set of cans like this sound great.
  4. Hickman is a noted LoSH fan, so I wouldn't be shocked if part of him coming over was being promised the Legion to play with, especially with how they've been teased throughout Rebirth.
  5. Magic Circle is a great old-school doom metal band from Boston and their second album, "Journey Blind", is coming out on Nov 20. You can listen to the first two tracks on the front page of their site here.
  6. IIRC, Moore is not benefitting financially from these reprints: per his request, his name has been removed from the credits and any money he would have made goes to Mick Anglo's estate.
  7. When asked if the blue futuristic-looking Flash on the cover is Wally, Booth replied "Wally is on the cover." I'm guessing he's the kid in the right-hand corner spray-painting "SUXS" on the wall.
  8. Any word on who is taking over permanently on Flash?
  9. Her response to this whole mess has actually made me want to read more from her.
  10. This is from the writer of the book in question:
  11. Honestly, it kind of makes sense -- the version of Lobo that was made hugely popular by Giffen back in the day was meant to be a parody/pastiche of the "badass action anti-hero" characters that littered the landscape of the grim-and-gritty 90's, so a Lobo created in 2013 probably would be a commentary on the "tortured pretty boy" type like Hiddleston's Loki, any almost character Benedict Cumberbatch plays, etc., wouldn't he?
  12. Huh? He looks fine to me... EDIT - Ah-ha, I hadn't read the thing about THIS lobo being an imposter, and this being "the real thing": I actually like the design, but yeah, it really doesn't say "Lobo" to me.
  13. Who will TV half of all crime TV shows rip off now?
  14. Lo3W had nice art and brought back two characters that everyone wanted to see return. Besides that, it was pretty awful.
  15. DKSA also suffers from the fact that 9/11 happened when Miller was writing it, and that's generally agreed to be what sent ol' Frank into his current state of loony-tunes, Ultimate Warrior-style insanity.
  16. Again, based on the fact that Zimmerman was going into his pants, I think Martin thought he was going for a gun and rushed him in an attempt to keep him from getting it out. If you have someone on the ground who you think has a gun, yeah, you might want to render them unconscious before you call the cops or run so that they can't get the gun and shoot you.
  17. If someone's pulling a gun on you who's standing right next to you, what are the odds that screaming is going to get him to stop in that split second, or get someone to you in time to stop them?
  18. Zimmerman was following Martin even though Martin was actively attempting to lose him, which makes it a little more than just "walking in the same direction." You are correct that 911 dispatchers cannot tell a caller what to do, mainly because of liability issues, but neighborhood watch guidelines say that you should follow their suggestions whenever possible. They also dissuade people from carrying firearms while out on patrol. I obviously can't say why Zimmerman chose Martin to pursue over any of the others he'd called the cops on (although do we know for sure that he was carrying a gun every single other time?), but his words and demeanor during the call indicate that he had become frustrated with the police's inability to catch any of them, so maybe he'd just had enough and decided that that night was the night to take a more active role? Zimmerman's own account of events is that Martin didn't throw the first punch until he brought his hands to his pockets; he says it was to get his cell phone, but Martin may have believed (correctly, it turns out) that Zimmerman was armed and was going to draw a weapon. As to why Martin didn't run, if he did indeed believe Zimmerman to be packing, why would he put himself at risk of being shot in the back by turning tail and running?
  19. Honest question: If the cops showed up that night to find Zimmerman dead and Martin standing over him, and if Martin had told them that he got into a confrontation with a creepy dude who'd been following him around the neighborhood, that the guy pulled a gun on him after a brief fight, and that he'd managed to get it away from him and shot him out of fear for his own life, do any of you think the cops would have sent Martin home without a drug test or further questioning and shoved Zimmerman's body into the cooler as a John Doe?
  20. According to the aforementioned Juror B37, SYG did factor into the jury's decision, and the judge's instructions made mention of it. http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/07/16/3502481/juror-we-talked-stand-your-ground.html
  21. Having a Mac limits me, but I bought Borderlands 2, Surgeon Simulator 2013, and Serious Sam 3 BFE.
  22. I'm probably buying more Marvel than I have at any time in the last five or ten years, although except for Fantastic Four/FF, it's all solo hero stuff.
