Re: Comics are Awesome III

I would never have thought there would come a point where I'd be reading more Marvel than DC, but it's happened. Of course when I'm buying one Marvel series and zero DC series, that's not saying much for the output of either company. I'm just not paying $5 per issue for a monthly book. The occasiona...

Re: Transformers: Escape miniseries

This issue continues the recent trend from recent issues, showing the Autobots and Decepticons becoming the factions most people remember from the original series. The Autobots, despite not being inclined to fight, are obligated to do so (most directly represented by Dai Atlas reclaiming his sword)...

Re: Transformers 2019 (IDW comic series) discussion

Dom, I wonder if the annual was originally meant to be a part of Galaxies? Maybe that series was cut short and the story had to go somewhere, so we got an Annual instead? Transformers 31 A cycle is a day in this continuity, so we get a time skip of 40 days as "Lord of Misrule" begins, with lots of s...

Re: Retro Comics are Awesome

Batman #73 October-November 1952 Last issue gave us three 12 page stories, while this issue has switched over to a mix of ten and twelve page stories. But two of the stories end with less than a full page of panels, so it's 9-2/3 pages, 9-1/2 pages, and finally 12 full pages. Guns for Hire! Script:...

Re: Star Trek

I hope they get it right, because I would enjoy seeing some well-written Picard/Q interaction. I figured they would have Q appear old because Picard is old, since John DeLancie has aged like everyone else. I wonder how they'll explain Guinan looking older if Whoopi Goldberg does appear on the show.

Re: Retro Comics are Awesome

A browse through volume 9 confirms that yes, Harvey Dent becomes Two-Face again, which I of course knew would happen/had happened from our present day point of view, I just didn't know when.

Re: Retro Comics are Awesome

I guess that's the problem when they created a great villain, gave him a happy, redemptive ending, but still want to use that villain. They can't have it both ways forever. I think this is why most comics feel the need to reboot after a decade or so. Over on the Collected Editions boards, one of th...

Re: Spring 2021 Hauls!!

Arrived today: Golden Age Batman omnibus volume 9 . I can't believe they've kept this reprint series going this long, and I hope for more. This volume takes us up to August 1954. I guess it's the old story of "Batman sells" because Superman is still only at six volumes, and no further than his 10th ...
