  1. Pantheon #5-7: I'm still enjoying this. Age of X-Man Next Gen #1: ok, I loved this. Age of X-Man The Amazing Nightcrawler #1: I wanted more from a first issue of this. Good to see Meggan again, though. Anthem #1: I guess this is based on a video game? It reads like it. Issues: 105 Trades: 6 Omnibus: 7 Graphic Novel: 8
  2. Man and Superman 100 Page Super Spectacular: Wolfman says this is the best Superman story he's written and puts it in his top 5 scripts period. I just find it so boring when writers go back to young Clark/new Superman to tell stories. I feel like it's top 3 go-to story tropes. Old Man Quill #1: Not bad. Just an excuse to tell a future GOTG story (Imagine that!) with a joke title. Intrigued. Red Sonja #1: Already don't like this iteration. Suicide Squad Black Files #4: Same old, same old. The supernatural story is GREAT and the Katana story is boring. C'mon. When ISN'T the Katan
  3. Mike: you're a fucking machine!
  4. And tonight we've binged the first half of Made For Love, which is great and has my new favourite actress Cristin Miloti (from Palm Springs, and that Black Mirror episode about toxic geek fandom as a Star Trek spoof). Good stuff. I'm also halfway through season 2 of Creepshow and am NOT liking it. I know Barbara Cramton shows up, so I'm watching that for sure. Otherwise, I'd probably bounce. I think my next "working from home lunch viewing" now that Archer is done will be the Spawn series. Got that on DVD a while back. Them is also on the docket.
  5. Run: girlfriend and I just finished Ratched and Sarah Paulsen is in this one, so we went for it. Pretty bog standard horror thriller elevated by some great performances from Paulsen, Kiera Allen who plays her daughter and Pat Healy as the hapless mailman. Haha! Decent. All Hail the Popcorn King: review forthcoming Barb and Star Go To Vista del Mar: this was a wild, weird comedy. I really enjoyed it. A couple lines that will stay with me. More than you can expect from most comedies. Features: 49 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 6 Rewatches: 0
  6. Just finished my watch-through of Archer. It took me about three years, but - having just finished it - it was absolutely worth it. I don't suppose it will ever return, but it ended on a great dumb joke, and that's perfect. More to say at another time. Until then: Does anybody have weird incomprehensible fictional crushes? No? Me neither.
  7. Jason vs. Leatherface #1-3: This mini from the mid-nineties is written by Nancy Collins, who knows exactly what a Jason vs. Leatherface movie would look like. She made this work. Dumb fun. Immortal Hulk #26: This is so obviously the definitive run of the Hulk. It's wild. Like, it's not even a question. Issues: 75 Trades: 5 Omnibus: 5 Graphic Novel: 8
  8. The Untamed/Kiki-di, Kiki-da: reviews forthcoming Features: 47 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 0
  9. Yeah, for as much respect that DC treated Kirby with, fucking him over on an ending to the Fourth World was a shitty move. In my recollection, they cut the page count when he was half finished with it, too.
  10. Me and Joe Priest: a nigh unreadable DC graphic novel from 85. Awful Metalzoic: another awful DC gn from 86. Art from Kevin Eastman is the only saving grace. Space Clusters: yet another DC graphic novel from 86 that is also terrible. Trying REALLY hard to be Heavy Metal here. And failing big time. Bang Bang 1-3: Carlos Trillo and Jordi Bernet's erotic graphic novel series. The stories aren't great, but Bernet draws sexy women like few others. Immortal Hulk #20-5: Still playing catch-up here. This went from vague cosmic horror to actual dead centre definition of cosmic horro
  11. Stacy and I finished Ratched (which was great and contains some of the most intense shit I've ever seen in a TV show) and we're on to The Good Lord Bird (which is also awesome).
  12. Thought that it should be mentioned that writer, forumite (though he never posted much) and cohost of the E-2 podcast Better in the Dark, Derrick has passed away. I'm heartbroken. The world is worse off without him.
  13. I pretty much agree with everything you said, but I have to say the early work on GOTG was pretty great space opera. Injustice Gods Among Us Year 5 Complete Collection: This shit keeps getting wilder and wilder. Issues: 65 Trades: 5 Omnibus: 5 Graphic Novel: 2
