    DC reboot

    I've completely given up on DC Comics since the reboot. I spent so much time getting emotionally invested the post-Crisis universe, learning far more about it than I ever possibly needed to, and now I just can't bring myself to care about a new continuity. Especially when 95% of the creative teams do absolutely nothing for me.
  2. Just finished Battlestar Galactica. The 'net tells me there's a lot of dispute over the final episodes quality, but I greatly enjoyed them. Sure, it didn't solve every dangling plot thread and probably doesn't make any real sense, but it was fun. I'd be first in line for a proper sequel series or TV movie set on current Earth. Battlestar Galactica- The Plan- The plan obviously being to spend 10 minute writing this pointless addendum. Paul- Kind of amusing on its own, but really disappointing considering the hopes for a new Pegg/Frost written film. I guess what this film perhaps proves is
  3. Suckerpunch: They spent all that money on the CGI to try and cover up for the terrible acting, right? Other than that I'm not sure what the hell to think about this film, since the quality of the visuals (and by that I mean the actresses) completely distracted me from forming a coherant critical thought. I'm even trying to do it now but can't because Vanessa Hudgens.
  4. Haven't posted on Earth-2 in a while, so this seems like the place to start. I'm currently watching... Game of Thrones- One of my favourite new shows of the past few years. The ending to episode 9 leading into the finale was jaw-dropping. Batman Beyond- I've been going through the DCAU show by show, and after some of the banality of Superman TAS this is a lot more enjoyable. Chris Sims at Comics Alliance pointed out that it's essentially Spider-Man in a batsuit bantering with Bruce Wayne. Good stuff, on the 2nd series now. Battlestar Galatica- Been very slowly watching this with a fr
  5. My bet would've gone on the next film being Superman/Batman- The Supergirl from Krypton. Maybe Apocalypse is that with a different name, although probably not. As long as it's not that shitty story arc with the fake Ultimates.
  6. Sorry dude, but I can't buy that. Marvel's biggest comic of the moment is about a battle between hundreds of superheroes and villains taking place on an island floating over America which happens to be Asgard, home of the Norse gods. At the crux of that, the strongest superhero of them all has just turned into his Lovecraftian alter-ego, just after murdering Ares, the Greek god of War. Marvel has more street level heroes, yeah, but one of them literally sold his marriage to the devil, and Marvel's grittiest street hero of them all is currently a nightmarish combination of undead man and mac
  7. Amazing Spider-Man #611: Spider-Man + Deadpool + Joe Kelly + Lady Stilt-Man= Funniest non-Incredible Hercules comic I've read in... maybe ever. Deadpool might be the second most over-exposed character in the MU right now, but this case the guest-starring was worth it.
  8. Just finished watching all of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe, which is a fantastically cynical programme about television itself. Also just finished Adventures of Batman & Robin, with New Adventures lined up next. Just saw Mystery of the Batwoman, too, but I thought it was pretty dire. Also, the Hulk vs. DVD, which I was pleasantly suprised with, and I particularly liked the vs. Wolverine one.
  9. Been reading The Books of Magic. Neil Gaimain's original miniseries is amazing, but the ongoing really isn't. Like The Dreaming, the majority is self-indulgent esoterical crap, occasionally brightened up by a good idea that just doesn't last. Also, Batman & Robin is amazing, and the news of upcoming Cameron Stewart art has me foaming at the mouth like a rabid dog who likes comics.
  10. I've been switching back and forth between: Bones- Season 4 Star Trek: TNG- Series 7 Eureka- Series 3 Dragonball (Just finished the Tien-Shinhan Saga) Batman: TAS (around ep 40)
  11. Superman's Pal Jimmy Olson Special 02- I wasn't expecting too much from this, and so I was very pleasantly suprised with how good it was. James Robinson writes Jimmy Olson better than anyone else I've read (i.e. he's actually a likable character rather than a whining little shit), the conspiracy-laden story is fan-freaking-tastic, and the ending is absolutely shocking stuff. Ongoing Superman just became a must-read for me, because I felt this was Starman-good. 9/10.
  12. Can't wait for the six month gap between issues.
  13. Happy birthday to Mr. Dirk Shadow
