That looks sick! Will check it out.

Really keen to read Snyder's horror comic that everyone's raving about, too; Severed.

I grabbed a few things from Kings tonight; missed Saga #2, though. Only went on sale today

Got the fourth Year of Monsters variant cover:



:jizzlobber:

Need the 3rd, Baba Yaga, so will grab online.

Oh, almost forgot: The Boys is finishing soon Last storyline kicks off next month.

Next I wanna grab Batman: Under The Red Hood - it keeps getting referenced in Supes/Bats or at least the premise of the return of Jason Todd, or not really.

And the world will really end this year Ian, it will! Look, I have proof:



SpiderMen: The 1st crossover between 616 and The Ultimate Universe

And it will all go downhill for Marvel from this.

Halfway through the first book of Chu. Great reading and dark humor is always welcome.

Finished the latest Walking Dead too.
Spoiler:
Rick just continues to go downhill, so much so
I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't die soon

"...There's daylight? It's Gotham City and there's bright daylight... That just doesn't work."

I don't fully share her opinion, but there's definitely something about that.

p.s. I also loved reading Gaiman's Sandman in wee small night hours; and its spin off Lucifer outdoors in summer days. When I'll be re-reading it, I'll do the same.

But what does "616" MEAN? What's the relevance of the numbers?

Main Marvel Multi-Verse Number.

Something Alan Moore originally conceived as DC was all 'Earth 2' this, and 'Earth 4' that, then I believe it was the creators/writers of The Exiles that built on it - and something to do with The Captain Britain Corps'

Three issues into Gates of Gotham, really enjoying it, did not realise it took place after The Death of Batman, so it's Dick Grayson Bats, not Bruce, which upset me, but way I see it, if it were anyone besides that two, I wouldn't read it.

And at lunch picked up Superman: For Tomorrow by Brian Azzarello and Jim Lee



DC Trades are nicely priced, so much cheaper.

We’re real poor at the moment, a situation that I am to blame for and gf is home sick.

So I totally thought I’d be sneaky and use the last $19.99 on her credit card for that Superman For Tomorrow trade

I return from a meeting with a message awaiting me:

“do you have my credit card?”

What? NO!

“Yeah you fucking do, cause my statement states it was used at Impact!!!”

I have yet to respond... I’ll probably just wait till I get home. I need to get weed 1st, maybe I’ll just go home super stoned.. idk.

Hey, meet the mystery illegitimate BLACK son of 616 Nick Fury, who now happens to be out of the Infinity Formula that has kept him from ageing all these years.

Can you guess what is going to happen next?!

You are fkn losing it Marvel, worst decision to have Tom fkn Beetroot! as editor-in-chief.

I may actually bring to a close my Marvel standing order.... keep some x-titles, other than that......

Dude I know, right?!

This is a decision I simply cannot justify, YOU'RE FKN DONE, SON!

It’s like I subconsciously knew this was happening, having taken a stronger interest in Batman and Supes and all that recently.

be prepared for ‘The New 616’ cause after AvX, the Phoenix Force will burn and destroy what we knew, and from the ashes will rise... I don’t fucking care.

Just wrapped this up between Hush, gotta say, I will keeping an eye out for Dennis Hopeless, great writing style, and he actually made me like Jean! JEAN?! Though essentially he replaced her with Emma Stone!

Fun and refreshing!

Press release, teasers and everything. C'mon DC.

Marvel didn't find the need to to have media statements for Rictor, Shatterstar, Hulkling and Wiccan when they came out, nor did that Archie Comics character that recently got married.

Yeah you gotta great point! Though Northstar's wedding is getting fuck tonne of media attention, and now the group, not so 'One Million Moms (bigots)' are boycotting X-men (yeah as I am sure it's on their non-existent standing order)

Found a great comment to go with that from the article:

Quote:

Is there any humor lost in an x-man being persecuted for how they were born?

Unless 1 million moms starts raising funds to build giant homosexual hunting robots this seems like a non issue...

I bought the Batman: Knightfall collected thingy (I think the cool kids call these trade paper bags, but what the fuck do I know about anything?). Regardless, I love it. Bane has always been my favourite Batman villain, and I'm really glad Nolan decided to use him in the final movie; perfectly dark fucked up character for a Nolan Batman flick.

^Planning on checking this out.

Read DC's Kingdom Come. Was good. Had Old Man Logan sort of feel to it, I don't normally read DC but glad I read this one. Going to check out Hush next. Also reading Silent Hill Omnibus, pretty good stuff - kinda like the games/movie - just lots of weird freaky shit.

Been reading "Young Brides Story". Really interesting and pretty accurate historical manga about the day to day live of a Central Asian family during the early 1900s. The artwork in it is drop dead gorgeous as well



Still reading Vinland Saga and it's still as brilliant as ever "Farmland saga" was a bit slow but that's all winding up now.
