Cosmos in collision is better than Infinity Gauntlet.

Honestly, you're right.  And this is from the guy whose life was so influenced by Infinity Gauntlet that my Internet identity has been based around Thanos for 20 years.

Anyone else see this? Thoughts?

My girlfriend is a huge Queen fan so I took her to a special sing-along showing as a Valentine's present. She absolutely loved it and I thought it was pretty damn good too, even though I'm just a casual Queen fan.

There's a line from Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, the book, that made me laugh as a kid, and still makes me laugh as an adult; but for two different reasons, and nowadays it's more of a cynical chuckle:

"But from my point of view, such an undertaking is impossible. The mathematics are so self-evident that they don't need to be calculated. It's rather like my asking you whether, on a billion dollars in income, you had to pay tax. You wouldn't need to pull out your calculator to check. You'd know tax was owed."

As long as they don't go down the "this character is 8000% perfectly awesome and can never do wrong ever" route, then yeah, I think this is good.

Also, love the Lockheed earrings.

Well, Vulture was responsible for killing an old boyfriend of Aunt May's.  While she did forgive him, there might still be some rage there.

That was such a good storyline.

Definitely! It's Mark Gruenwald at the top of his game, with great art by Mike Manley and Greg Capullo. Cosmic action and plots but with a more human touch.

Went to the library and picked up Trade containing the first 9 issues of his series. Been in a cosmic mood lately rereading all the post annihilation stuff so this should be fun.

Nice. Hope you like it enough to continue on to the second volume.

Quaze has only ever had one other collection, and I'd long given up hope on ever seeing my all-time favorite storyline ever get reprinted.

But guess what caught my eye this evening while I was browsing at Books-A-Million?

This! Collecting not only the seven part "Cosmos In Collision" story itself, but the nine issues that led up to it!

Not gonna lie: when I saw it and confirmed it was real, I laughed really loud, then grabbed it and did a goofy little spinning dance.

Cruz is horrible, but Mitch McConnell is worse.

Let me put it to you this way, I regained my faith in Christianity based solely on needing to believe that hell exists so he can burn there.

Personally, I'm a Deist, but that's part of the reason I believe in an afterlife too.

I think Biden's window just might be closed, period. Both of his previous Presidential campaigns were terribly unsuccessful and he doesn't seem to be embracing a new direction. All he really has now is " I'm Obama's guy. "

Corporate Dems have a weird habit of thinking people tangibly connected to past presidents will be instantly popular.  We saw this with Gore, Hillary, and now Biden.

See, I think Gore would have won indisputably in 2000 if he had leaned on Clinton more. That's something I read in a few post-mortems, that he was worried that Clinton's scandals would reflect badly on him and so tried to keep Bill at arm's length for most of the campaign. He didn't realize that, by and large, most of the undecideds tended to like Clinton, and that the people for whom the scandals were a huge deal probably wouldn't have voted for him anyway.

The establishment learned that lesson after Gore, but now they're clinging TOO hard to it and making exactly the opposite mistake.

Not sure what my thoughts are on superpowered Sivana, but the rest of it is great.

I do agree that Osborns and Goblins need to be kept out of the spotlight for a while.

The Blade films--well, at least the first two--were good, but I feel they fell short of "full crazy comic book action." So did the first X-Men.

Spider-Man Far From Home trailer.  I'm calling it now: those creatures were created by Mysterio.

Definitely. Mysterio's always been an attention whore.

My favorite is still the second Raimi movie.

Yeah, the Raimi movies are classics.  The Amazing Spidey films were subpar and the MCU movies are fun but they haven't quite reached the level of the first two Raimi flicks.  I think a lot of it has to do with Raimi's directorial style.  His visuals lend themselves well to the superhero genre.  Watts and Webb by comparison are passable film directors.

I especially think that the clock tower/elevated train battle between Spidey and Ock was the first truly great action sequence in a superhero film, matching what the characters are capable of in the original comics.
