Showcase of the Immortals / Re: RIP Jim “The Anvil” Niedhart
« on: August 20, 2018, 04:46:39 AM »
Hey, Anvil remarried his wife and was married to her at the time of his death, so obviously that was either a lie, or SHE forgave him :).

Plus, it was Diana Hart's book, wasn't it? That whole thing was a steaming bowl.

Marvel Zombies / Re: Multiple man 1

It's the type of comic that gives me the feeling Matt Rosenberg lurks here.

I also like the explanation for why Madrox is still alive. It's not a copout and actually fuels the overall storyline. I have a feeling this is going to be a clever and fun run. Wish the art was better.
Like there's any hero on Earth easier to resurrect than THE FUCKING MULTIPLE MAN.

..he clearly shittted on Wakandan culture to inject Western degeneracy into the mythos.
But... but I've heard MRAs whine that he's a black supremacist who carries on an anti-white story! WHICH MORALLY-ABHORRENT CRACKPOT DO I BELIEVE, NOW!?!?!?

General Comic Discussion / Re: So, the great Steve Ditko is dead.

Steranko looks HILARIOUS in person- ultra-tanned, finely-coiffed, but all of five-foot-two. He looks like a Mafiosi that shrunk in the wash.

It's sad that Ditko wasn't found for 2 days. The idea that someone who had an influence on the world could be ignored for that long bothers me.
Sadly not that uncommon for people who live alone, and not in Retirement Communities. Given how antisocial he was, I'm honestly surprised it wasn't longer- usually, it's the smell that tips people off in these cases.

One of the last of his generation- I think Stan Lee might be the only major comic book star of the '60s still kicking. I suppose there's Steranko, Neal Adams and a few others who came along later in the decade.

Ditko was a true original- famously-shy, even in his creative prime (he refused to answer fan letters, and they joke about it in the "Mighty Marvel Marching Society" record they sent out to their fans), obsessive about what he saw as proper morality, and with a very specific take on Spider-Man. As soon as he was gone, you saw a HUGE creative shift in the book, as it became a "College Drama" with a very different feel to it- a sure sign of his creative input. And Doctor Strange was never the same again- nobody else has come close to Ditko's level on that one.

This one's really fucked up. Dude basically had his career kneecapped early on by brain cancer... then dies from it ten years later? With a HUGE gap in the middle? Cancer is fucking weird.

Daria was so era-specific. I dunno if the same thing would work today. Okay, so "girls like shitty guys as long as they're in bands" and "High School sucks" are omnipresent tropes in real life, but still.

Curse you, Gambit! That was Deadpool's girl!!

...

But yeah, it's kind cheap to promise the fans something and don't deliver.
She was actually getting with the Torch in that Avengers book, too. EVERY new writer of books tries to form their own Random Coupling these days.

And, he’s been future endeavored. 

Carmella better watch her back.
Dude, they didn't even future endeavor him! They actually DIDN'T WISH HIM THE BEST IN HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS. Now THAT is cold!

Yeah, it's good. WAY more action-packed than the first one, and a bit less "Small character stuff", but I liked it. Some of the funniest stuff was in the trailer, but they left in some really good gags- including probably the best one. Despite a huge amount of "The Merch" focusing on Edna Mode, she's only in a pair of scenes, so don't worry about her being pushed too hard. She's great, but repetition of her would ruin what makes her fun.

The cynic in my notices a LOT of "The Merch" going on, here- there's a motorcycle AND a car, plus three costumes for Elastigirl, a ton of Jack-Jack forms, and more. Even the one scene with the raccoon is turned into a toy!

And yes, they show it off, and it is GLORIOUS. Many, near-endless scenes, almost entirely shot from behind Helen Parr's huge, glorious... wait- where was I?

OH YEAH! Great action, with some fun Supers (very minor characters), your trademark Modern-Day Disney Villain, and more. I do like how every character had stuff to do, cool actions scenes to show off, and some character bits. The Villain Reveal got REALLY obvious about ten minutes before it came off, largely because Odenkirk being the bad guy was so obvious that it was clearly a red herring (I mean, it's BOB ODENKIRK!).
