    Infinity Countdown Prime: I'm loving this. Way better than the Warlock issue. Love the art, and intrigued by the story. Lucas Stand Inner Demons #1: not as impressive as the first series. I'll give it one more. Mata Hari #1: snooze. Out. Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe #2: wow...really fun. Pumpkinhead #1: this was really fun. Punks Not Dead #1: this was decidedly unpack and lame. Out. Red Sonja #13: kind of losing its shine here. I am going to eye dropping this if it continues that way. Tales of Suspense #102: I'm really enjoying this. The Brave and the Bold Batman and Wonder Woman #1: I'm out. Terrible. The Mighty Thor #704: fucking beautiful. Uber Invasion #11: fucking great. Vampirella #10: same feeling here as with Red Sonja X-Men Gold #22: this is also losing its shine. They don't need three X-men books. Cave Carson has a Cybernetic Eye/Swamp Thing Special #1: more fucking garbage. Generation X #87: hard to see why they bothered with this. Superman #41: alright. The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #2: love this. Abbott #2: this better get to the fucking point right quick next issue. Action Comics #998: boy, Booster Gold really stunk this book up. All-New Wolverine #31: I loved this. Avengers #682: this was solid. Backways #3: I'm out. Not terrible, but it's failing to grab me and it's really close to something I'm writing. Black Betty #2: not my thing. I'm out. Calexit #2: I appreciate what they're trying to do, but I just don't give a shit. Champions #17: this was pretty ho-hum.

    Wow...that's the kickoff for the Marvel Epic proposal Davinder and I were putting together all those years ago when we first met.

    Episode 563

    I will go to my grave saying the first Saw movie is a solid horror film with an incredibly effective ending. I can't speak for any others because I've never bothered watching them.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    So...I finished season 4 and I have to say they really salvaged the Archer Vice thing. Not sure what led to the divergence, but it was handled pretty well overall. In particular, the last three episodes of the season are some of the best of the series thus far. It makes up for a pretty lacklustre beginning. Though, I REALLY dig Outlaw Country Cherlyne.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    So...Archer Vice is happening. Not sure how to feel about it.
  6. Uhm...I feel like we should fix this. I also have not seen the Zombie sequel, but I have the series box set. So, I'm all set.

    Help Influence Episode 55!

    yup. Ladyhawke is fun too.
  8. They might not be wiping the siblings thing out, but it isn't definitive in the first film, so it may be a lacklustre reveal in this one. I'm a little unhappy about no Halloween II (because I love it) but this looks pretty awesome.

    Hahaha! God! Tell me this hasn't been in a Batman issue in the past six issues! Also: real talk. Bruce Wayne is not a generous lover. If it's double digits it's because he can't ejaculate because all he can think about it his mother's pearls hitting pavement.

    Poison Ivy. Before that it was Wonder Woman. Then Talia before that. I expect fucking Silver St. Cloud to pop up before the wedding by this point.

    Skybourne #5: I really enjoyed this. A blockbuster version of the stuff I like to write. The Mighty Crusaders #3: Jesus...why can't anyone ever get this shit right? It's not fucking hard. Punisher #221: fuck, this is great. If you've ever liked a Punisher comic and aren't reading this, you're missing out. Weapon X #14: pretty solid. X-Men Blue #21: if you'd asked me even a year and a half ago that one of my favourite stories of the year involves a team-up between the time-traveling teenage versions of the original X-Men and Venom, then I would have probably punched you in the nose. Xena Warrior Princess #1: Well, that's a shame. Giants #2,3: Hmmm...went from kind of ambivalent, to really enjoying the world of this series. Justice League of America #24: oof, this was exhaustively bad. Marvel Two-In-One #3: really damned good. Suicide Squad #35: really solid. Avengers #681: still good. Batman #41: the cavalcade of girls Bruce has banged continues. God... Damage #2: a little early to be jumping into a crossover with the Suicide Squad. Seems desperate. Daredevil #599: solid. Deadpool vs Old Man Logan #5: really powerful ending to this. Did not expect that. Death Bed #1: holy shit. This is bonkers and I love it. Evolution #4: grotesque. Really good. Hellboy and the BPRD 1955 Burning Season #1: weird. I would have liked three issues for this. Seems too truncated for the ending to have any impact. Wonder why they didn't when they've clearly given six issues to far thinner storylines. Hit-Girl #1: this was fun. Ice Cream Man #2: is this just a horror anthology series? I'm intrigued. Incredible Hulk #713: really fun. Comics: 640 Trades: 17 Graphic Novels: 8 Omnibus: 9

    I would still put Planes, Trains and Automobiles as the top by a huge margin, but Uncle Buck is fucking great and undeservingly forgotten when his legacy is discussed. Speaking of... The Great Outdoors: a John Hughes script that is just pure dumb fun. It is still pretty smart being both a youth romance film as well as an adult-oriented family comedy. Solid. John Candy is amazing here, but Dan Ackroyd really steals the show. I think that was the point. Annette Benning was a fucking fox, by the way. That's it.

    The Crow (remake)

    I'm going to posit that we don't remake the Crow until an idea comes around that's better than the original (which isn't a huge bar to rise above, by the way).

    Talk Dirty: a crazy ass Eros graphic novel with completely incredible art and storytelling. It gets a little rapey, but it's European and almost all Euro comics are rapey. Superman #40: I'm tiring of this series, to be honest, but this is an interesting take, this arc. Action Comics #997: goddamn...what an inversion on prior storytelling techniques and quality. The conspiracy theorist in me almost wants to say they're tanking Action to make it look better when Bendis gets his hands on it. Ugh. Archie #28: pretty close to jumping off the Archie train here. Nothing outstanding, but just tiring of it. Avengers #680: the worst issue of this arc, but still halfway decent. Babyteeth #8: this was really fucking great, Captain America #698: ok, this is alright. Death of Love #1: interesting. Not great, but I'll give it another. Detective Comics #974: pretty solid. Hack/Slash vs Vampirella #5: fun. Good ending. Kick-Ass #1: nawww....I'm good thanks. Ninja-K #4: the best issue of the series so far. This is great. Old Man Hawkeye #2: this is really solid. Old Man Logan #35: this was ok. Red Hood and the Outlaws #19: really fun. Shade the Changing Girl Wonder Woman Special #1: fuck...why am I putting myself through this nonsense? Sideways #1: nowhere near as solid as Silencer's first issue, but I'm interested to see how they tie this to DC. Comics: 618 Trades: 17 Graphic Novels: 8 Omnibus: 9

    Random movie and tv thoughts

    No, but I've seen and read a bunch of "I used to be a zombie" things, though. I was going more by post zombie apocalypse. Most notably springing to mind is THE CURED.

    There's post-post-apocalypse stuff, but nothing zombie specific that I can particularly think of.

    I'm not. The only people facing consequences are those in the entertainment industry. Those in politics are still running free and completely fearless.

    Weird Dreams

    I dreamed last night that I was a guest auctioneer for a suped up Mercedes, but I was really tired and couldn't keep my eyes open, so while I was barely able to read the copy another guy was keeping tabs on who was bidding and what amount. That guy went on break at the end (because why not?) and the last bid anyone could remember solidly was 22K and it was by Donald Trump. We were desperately trying to find the guys who bid after him as we were all sure it happened, but he ended up winning and I got really mad. I think it was about NAFTA.

    The Music Thread

    Zeal & Ardor is pretty cool. Genre-mixing is the new thing with Black Metal now which is good because most of the time. BM by itself is terrible. Blackgaze is a thing with Alcest, GhostBath , Deafheaven, and my favourite Vattnet Viskar (just Vattnet now). My favourite though is the mix of folk music and black metal which you get with Cobalt, Agalloch, Fall of Rauros and Panopticon (my favourite.) Their album "Kentucky" is being called blackguard because it mixes bluegrass and black metal. Pretty impressive. Edit: Jesus...how did I get all those band names through the autocorrect of Safari and not the two bolded words?

    CM Punk: The Best in the World: watched this feature length doc on the DVD set Duane sent me because I'd never seen a CM Punk match and really enjoyed it. Some of it was schmaltzy WWE production, but there was some rawness to it which I appreciated. I didn't expect so much ROH footage, which was interesting.
