  1. Every comic you've read in 2017

    The Vision is so good I'm buying the Director's Cut releases despite having the whole series on Comixology.
  2. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    A Monster Calls - Just heartwrenching. Loved it.
  3. Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Can't go wrong with Hannibal Buress. Maybe Eric Andre can be a teacher in the second movie.
  4. Spider-Man: Homecoming

  5. Every comic you've read in 2017

    Starstruck - I appreciate its existence as a comedic, feminist, creator-owned sci-fi story (especially with how dude-heavy stuff like 2000 AD is). I dig the worldbuilding that goes on. I like the themes. But man, was this hard to follow. Whenever I feel like I gave a handle on the plot, it shifts scenes into something completely different. Maybe I just need to read it again, and much closer but this initial reading took me a couple of months, on-and-off. As for stuff I loved, I adored just about every single page of artwork. I'm a fan of Kaluta's Madame Xanadu, and this was something a little different but still had a similar feel. Especially with Lee Moyer and Charles Vess doing colors, maaan. The Galactic Girl Guide backups were pretty cute. Those were more enjoyable for me on a first reading. I will say this though, I'm intrigued about the world. I found the audiodrama version on Spotify, so I'm giving that a listen.
  6. Everything Marvel

    This reminds me of the Kryptonian parts of Supergirl, just given its own show.
  7. I can sorta understand it, since the episodes are a well-oiled machine at this point, while the Anthology films are more new territory for them.
  8. The DCAU news thread

    Without any special features it seems, sadly.

    I believe it's a multiverse story?

    Apparently she's done an issue each of Journey Into Mystery and Fearless Defenders. She also did the full interiors (I believe) for the Superior Spider-Man: Inhumanity one-shot. She also painted this Peter Parker cover that is one of my absolute favorites.

    American Vampire Vol. 3 - Continues to be awesome. The guest artists Daniel Zezelj and especially Sean Murphy turn in some gorgeous stuff, in addition to the solid Albuquerque art. Excalibur Visionaries: Warren Ellis Vol. 1 - Mixed on this. First arc with the Soulsword is pretty good. But then Age of Apocalypse happens and the book gets thrown off course. The arc with Kitty Pryde and Pete Wisdom left me very cold. It didn't help having such inconsistent art. I dug Terry Dodson's work, and the others to some degree, but it changed far too much for my tastes. Umbrella Academy: Dallas - Baffling to read but it comes together pretty well in the end. Gabriel Ba's art continues to be my reason to read these.
  12. What games are you currently playing?

    Got Prey by Arkane Studios and Bethesda (Bethany Esda), since horror sci-fi is my jam. A couple hours into it, and I'm digging the game. There's some neat twists and turns story-wise, and I'm enjoying how Morgan Yu's character keeps shifting the more you find out about him. The worldbuilding in the game is great, with a great balance of darkness and humor (loved finding that one dude's D&D character sheet). There's so much thought put into where everything fits, it's amazing. The world design is pretty interesting, having a central location that links back to every other place you need is something I haven't personally encountered much. That leads into my only complaint so far, that loading times are pretty bad for how much the game relies on you going from area to area. It's more than a little annoying that a lengthy loading screen (with interesting art to look at, to be fair) has to be followed by another loading screen. But yeah, I'm really digging the game, it feels like a natural (and better) extension of games like Bioshock and Alien: Isolation.

    It took five months due to life and other games getting in the way, but I finally finished the Mass Effect Trilogy. I don't really have any complaints, aside from 1's gameplay being very frustrating. It was an amazing experience to me, and I just loved seeing my FemShep, Liara, Garrus and Tali grow over the course of the story. I don't know how likely I am to replay this any time soon, I'm a little too attached with how it went this time to do so. I got into this series because Andromeda got me interested but considering how all that's worked out, I might just wait until they've worked out everything first.

    Checchetto's one of my favorite current artists. He did the Star Wars: Shattered Empire and Anakin & Obi-Wan series, plus Rucka's run on Punisher and some Avenging Spider-Man during the Superior era. Great artist, glad he's getting so much work.
  15. What games are you currently playing?

    So after 50-something hours, I finished Horizon Zero Dawn. I don't think I've ever Platinum'd a game before, but I did it with this (and still have so many unlockables and map icons left). This is one of the few times I felt a game's plot was just as engrossing as the characters and the gameplay, as I often feel they have two of those three but not all. But I love the dense world holding, the characters that had just enough depth for a first game, and the combat that constantly had me figuring out new tactics. Aloy is a great character, I'm looking forward to seeing her grow over how many games they're planning to do. Everything with Rost just pulled on my heartstrings, especially when you visit his house later on. I don't like that, aside from Sylens, there's hardly any constant characters alongside you for most of the game but I get it. The side characters are wonderful though. Talanah, Petra and Vanasha are my absolute favorites. They're all so much fun. Whatever they have in this game's future, I'm here for it.
