The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. Charlie is doing great, been home since day 2 and really getting the hang of chilling with mom, dad and the cats. Brucie is still in NICU trying to put on a few pounds, but he's otherwise in great shape and should be home in time to save the world from evil on NYE. I'm waiting on a call-back from Ra's al Ghul that would potentially get him home a few days sooner.
  2. Thanks gang, I figured if there were ever a place on the internet that could truly appreciate the names, it would be right here. Wifey gets major kudos not just for being okay with it, but for actually suggesting them. With parents this cool, how can they go wrong?
  3. Thanks for the feedback, all! Mike, I had many of those issues with later story arcs of 100 Bullets - I had major trouble following Azzarello's dialog and felt like it was too convoluted and complicated for its own good. Loved it for the atmosphere, though, and learned to appreciate the series for that reason alone. I felt like Spaceman was similarly difficult to translate at a glance, but more singular-minded, with far fewer key players, and as a result more appealing to delve into. I'm also much more interested in dystopian futurist sci-fi than pulpy modern crime, though, so maybe that factored in here as well. Either way, I'm surprised we had such wildly different takes on it. Prez, I think that exaggerration is part of what I love so much about Bachalo's artwork. In a world filled to the brim with cloned muscle freaks baring grit teeth and arched backs, it's often tough to differentiate one character from the next apart from the markings on their wardrobe. Bachalo's style is more interested in defining each different character's body type and personality than strict realism. He does have his slips and slides from time to time, granted, and I still yearn for a return to the hybrid style he showcased in Death: The High Cost of Living, but his modern work is pleasantly different. I get that he's a major point of contention among fans, though, and understand the reasoning on both sides of that argument.

    Dubs is 27!

    Happy birthday, Holmes. May you spend it enjoying all manner of inane, scarcely known video games from all corners of the universe.
  6. One other thing I failed to mention in the TMNT review: The Sam Keith variant cover is one of the biggest disappointments ever. What happened to that guy?!
  7. Frankly, I lost interest when I saw the letters MMO, but it's disappointing to hear it isn't living up to expectations all the same.
  8. Thanky kindly. I'd be interested in seeing how the ratings break down by publisher, since this makes two weeks in a row where we've trashed a Superman book.

    Thanks everybody! I know I haven't been around here as much as I'd like, and it means a lot to hear from everyone. And Dubs, that llama pic is breathtaking.
  10. Excellent reviews from my peers, as always. Tom, I've been with Scarlet since issue one and this was undoubtedly the weakest single issue of the run. Earlier issues had better showings from both creators, Bendis back to his old form with street-wise dialog and Maleev experimenting with gorgeous new techniques. I think the action moving faster in the primary storyline has forced both to take the back seat for an episode or two.
  11. They actually made four proper console games set in Oddworld, though you're right in claiming only two were chapters in the "quintology." -Abe's Oddysee -Abe's Exoddus -Much's Oddysee -Stranger's Wrath Still loving this series, Dubs!
  12. I'd completely forgotten about Bad News Baseball! That review made me fire up the modded Xbox for an emulator session last night. Nice work as usual, Dubs.
  13. Thanks Tom, I had fun with it. Hope it lives up to the expectations!
  14. I love these stats. And I also love that I've once again won "most balanced."
