    Right now I'm reading Sonic the Hedgehog, The Flash, and Darkwing Duck when it comes to comics.

    As far as trades gp, I'm about half way done with The Flash Book One from Mark Waid's Run. Born to Run was a great, deeper origin story for Wally West and I really like the character of John Fox, the fourth, far future Flash. Glad to hear he'll come back in later volumes. There really hasn't been a story in this trade I haven't liked. If anything, this is just cementing, Wally West as the preferred version of the Flash for me.

    The Flash The Silver Age Vol. 1 has been a really fun read for me. Light hearted fun. Once I finish this one up, I'll probably jump into Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

    Currently Reading:

    Comics:

    Spider-Man Renew Your Vows
    X-Men '92
    Spider-Man / Deadpool

    Manga:

    Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin
    Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt
    Inuyashiki
    GTO Lost Paradise
    Berserk
    Monster Hunter Flash Hunter

    The other things I read are Marvel prose books, mostly words with few pictures. Because I'm a Marvel guy and I'm not really happy with the direction most of 616 Marvel is going. So I basically read stuff that takes place in and around 1980 - 2000. A happier time for me. So stuff I've read -

    Spider-Man The Darkest Hour - This is a great one and done by Jim Butcher of the Dresden Flies.

    Spider-Man The Sinister Six Trilogy - If you ever wanted to know who that mysterious old man was in those Andrew Garfield movies well he came from this series. An excellent read and the fun thing about it is that since it's a prose book and no one is looking, the author stuck a bunch of characters in there if you pay close attention. Joker, Ra's Al Ghul, Jerry Seinfeld, Stan Lee and even the gang from Scooby Doo ha ha! Good fun!

    Spider-Man X-Men Time Arrow Trilogy - Reading this now and up to the third book. The first book is okay, the second book is great (The second book is done by the same author of the Sinister Six trilogy. He snuck Godzilla in their ROFL) and the third book is dragging. I guess this is the problem with having each book done by a different writer. But hey at least Spider-Man is still married and the X-Men still matter. Hopefully the third book will finish strong.

    I guess since I'm here already, I'm reading the new teen titans: Who is Donna Troy? trade. Funny seeing how complicated both her pre and post crisis back stories are right next to each other.

    Even though i'm not reading that series yet, I'm really glad that Viv didn't end up being an isolated incident only to be used for one story and forgotten like most similar characters.

    That Vision(s) run was absolutely great, and she had some great character development in it along with Papa Vision.

    ---

    Started the Carnage run from last year, it's actually pretty good for the most part.

    April is looking really good. The X-Men will appear in The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows in their 90s outfits, so you are getting 90s X-Men with a married Spider-Man at the same time! Eddie Brock Will FINALLY become Venom once again in April's issue of Venom. Street Fighter vs. Darkstalkers also starts. HYPE!

    That's a real shame, I wanted to see the new guy actually get fleshed out as Venom.

    I also liked that Eddie was using the Toxin symbiote(coincidentally featured in the Carnage book) as a more morally bankrupt Agent Venom type.

    Can't agree with their choice to slap it right back onto an old host, I thought the fun of the symbiote came from the fact that they can throw it on a new character ever few years or so and it has a new dynamic each time.

    Just me personally but I agree with David Michellinie, one of his creators regarding Venom. It just isn't Venom without Eddie Brock. It's just another guy wearing his clothes. Marvel seems to understand this with Carnage. With Eddie and Venom, not so much.

    I did like Anti-Venom. The problem with Eddie being Toxin is that the original Toxin was pretty good. But he got the shaft really quick.

    I liked Flash as Agent Venom, but at the same time would just rather he was called something else or used one of the 100,000,000,000,000,000 other symbiotes out there.

    With Marvel right now there's definitely a push to gain a lot of the older fan base that they have shunned lately. Because the well they drew from the new readers that came in from the movies is sort of drying up. DC went through the same exact thing this year with their Rebirth initiative. Giving older fans things they wanted.

    Spider-Man Renew Your Vows is an obvious one with Spider-Man being married again. He'll never be married again in Amazing Spider-Man so long as Joe Quesada is working for Marvel in any capacity because at this point it's an ego thing for him. It's also quite telling that their first villain is Mole Man who is a Fantastic Four villain. Marvel pretty much got away with doing away with the Fantastic Four solely to stick it to Fox. So here you have a comic with a family dynamic again.

    Venom being with Eddie Brock is another one of those things. But the conspiracy theorist in me thinks that this is because Venom is probably going to be in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite (he at least among the rumored characters) and he'll only be Venom while the game is making the rounds. Eddie Brock and Gambit are the two 90s characters people working at Marvel hate the most. I don't think they care much for Carnage either, but his minis sell. His ongoing did get canned so there's that.

    There's other things like X-Men '92's existence, and the big push X-Men are getting this year. A lot of that has to do with Marvel trying to push Inhumans in their comics as their replacement failing miserably. Once again solely to stick it to Fox.

    Another big one is bringing Ben Reilly back. He's not reeeeally back though. He's a clone of, a clone... I'm not really a fan of Ben Reilly, but there are definitely people out there who wanted him back in some capacity. He's getting a new ongoing by Peter David.

    The move that strikes me as funny, not because it's being done to attract new readers but it's just kind of random. Miles Morales Spider-Man dating Spider-Gwen. Both books are now having declining sales and this looks like a way to generate interest. They'll never get rid of Miles Morales, but pull whatever stunt they can to keep him around. Because he's a Bendis character and it keeps the SJW crowd happy. His book is written really well by Bendis despite all of the politics though.

    Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen will bond over comparing Peter Parker deaths. :P

    Mile Morales is just a token blackish character used to push more white female leads. Waiting for him to die so that Spider Gwen(dumbest fucking name ever) takes up his role and seeks vengeance for his death that will be forgotten in less than a few months.

    Re: Modern Comics

    I'm more than aware of "social progression" running throughout comics history. Green Arrows "My Ward is a Junky" storyline is one of my favorite comic stories of all time, likewise as a wee lad reading through my dads old Captain American and Falcon comics had an effect on me. Seeing a badassed black character being the partner, not the sidekick, of one of my favorite characters was pretty fucking cool. Yeah, it was in line with the current civil rights and war on drugs stance the USA had at the time but the writing was legitimately good and didn't come off as overly heavy handed. For my money those stories still stand the test of time, just look at these two panels:

    Green-Arrow-punches-Speedy.jpg

    32f7675ba0.jpg



    For a modern example that I really liked was Black Cap America in All-New, All Different Avengers dealing with the public deriding him as the "affirmative action" captain America. Sometimes the writing is heavy handed and I didn't always like the writing of Falcon as Cap but he has his strong moments. Alternatively, I really really like Miles Morales and think his comic is pretty well written. In fact he's so well written that he'd be a good superhero without the moniker of "Spider-Man", though I don't know how well his comic would sell unfortunately.

    I don't like female Thor partially because I feel like she renders my girl Valkyrie moot. I don't get why they didn't just push Val instead.

    Spider-Man's my favorite fictional character but it's really annoying that we currently have three people named Spider-Man living in the Marvel Universe at the same exact time. Peter, Miles and Spider-Man 2099 Miguel O'Hara.

    Anyone else ever finish reading a comic, manga or graphic novel and come out thinking: Man, that would have been way better as a movie. I'm curious because I recently-ish read 'Supergod' by Warren Ellis and that was my thought on the book. The premise was very interesting (with a decent screenwriter and a decent budget I imagine it would make a very watchable movie) but holy crap was the pacing terrible. Art wasn't great either. -_-

    Usually not, I just wish the book was written better.
    I feel like comic books are a good middle ground between films and books.
    They leave less to your imagination than books, but more than films.

    Also about modern mainstream comic books:

    They have no balls, and never will have balls.

    During the cold war, Captain America fought communists and everyone was trying to demonize drugs as much as possible, as governments around the world tightened up anti-drug laws, so the governments could freely invade those long haired hippy communists homes and put them to jail for having opinions opposing the governments agendas, and not because these drugs are more dangerous than coffee, cigarettes or alcohol.

    They always take the popular stance no matter how bullshit it is and try to offend as few people as possible.
    90% of the crap they release are retarded power fantasies designed for kids with low self esteem anyways, which often collides with the so called messages they try to send like equal rights for all kinds of people in X-Men, when mutants are obviously not equal to humans and thus not properly reflects actual problems in society.
    People in the X-Men actually have a point when they're afraid of mutants and trying to protect themselves, while white people have no fucking business oppressing people of different heritage.
    The topic is handled terribly by the X-Men and is much more on point in The Boys.

    When you're looking for honest material you usually gotta stay away from Marvel and DC and the likes and look for good writers doing material for smaller publishers.
    Back when I was more into comic books, Vertigo had some good pieces here and there, but I don't know what the status of the sub label is nowadays.

    Luckily people like Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Alan Moore and a handful of other writers sneak cool comics into the heaps of shit Marvel and DC dump out every month.

    For all of the campy things that happened in the 2099 Universe, I really thought Punisher 2099 made the most sense and could have been a cool movie if done correctly.

    That would have been nice. It's also why I, at this point treat, graphic novels that tout being written and illustrated by the same person with some hesitation as the number of people out there who're legitimately good at both is far fewer than the number who try to fill both roles. IMO you'd rather get can write but can't quit draw over can't write but can draw as at least with the former you've got a decent story. The funny thing is that I'd still kind of recommend checking out one of the most egregious examples I have of can't write can draw in 'Legends: the Enchanted' just because it's some of the best artwork I've seen in any graphic novel (the story is pretty throwaway).

    Can't say I've ever wished for a comic book to become a movie.

    When you read a comic book you have full control. The characters can sound like anyone you want them to sound like. Anyone you know in real life, any actor that has ever lived past or present, any cartoon voice actor, anybody.

    The dialog flows however you want it to flow.

    The music you hear in the background can be anything you want. Any song with lyrics or any orchestral song you have ever heard. You don't have to worry about licensing fees or a song being on embargo because someone else is using. Or, there can be no music period or no music for certain scenes. That is also a choice.

    Yeah, you are married to the art. But at least with Marvel and DC, the characters have been interpreted many ways you do have some wiggle room to imagine certain aspects of a character looking however you want because there will be artwork out there to justify it.

    In my mind Spider-Man has NEVER had tiny eyes in a comic book. McFarlane / Bagley sized eyes since day one. That's my story and I'm sticking to reading it.

    So when someone makes a movie they take all of these choices away from you and they have real world limitations your imagination doesn't have.

    If you have someone talented like Nolan, the Russo Brothers, James Gunn, Robert Rodriguez and so on you can sit back and relax, enjoy their vision and let it add to yours.

    ....But if you get Snyder, Singer, that Daredevil / Elektra / Ghost Rider 2 director who deserves to be shot, anyone who has ever touched a Fantastic Four movie... RUH ROH! It quickly becomes a situation where you have to be careful what you wish for.

    I love Miles and think Miguel is cool. I just hated how they handled Miles initial book. Put me off from the whole thing really. Same with Arana, I thought she was going to be pretty cool as well but marvel rather fill it's books with corny white women. Best actual true spider man that I read so far was doc ock spidey. That was fun, so was Kaine as Scarlet Spider. I might check out some other stuff later but honestly they just make it so hard to get into some times with all these cross overs.

    Pretty much only read Invincible whenever they decide to release an issue. Been more into manga which still seems like slim pickings as well.

    I enjoyed Ock as Spidey during the Superior Spider-Man arc. It was different and fun.

    To me it seems Slott is burned out on Peter Parker Spider-Man and doesn't really want to write him anymore. People constantly tell Peter in his own book that he's an idiot and he doesn't even lead the action in his own book most of the time, other characters do and he reacts to it. Slott was better off writing Doc Ock as Spidey and I would rather he found a way to keep that going.

    The worst Slott moment was towards the end of Spider-Verse. All the Spider characters were around alternate reality Unce Ben who had given up being a hero. You would think that Peter Parker would give him an inspirational speech to motivate him right?

    Nope. Doc Ock Spidey actually curses at him and says something like "SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET OFF YOUR ASS!" And that works. Wow, just... wow.

    So now with millionaire Spider-Man, Slott is basically writing Iron Man. I get that writing Spider-Man is his life long dream, but what has he written like 200 issues by now? That would burn out anybody. I wish he would step aside for the good of the character.

    In much less depressing news, Dark Horse will drop another Berserk volume in July! After 3 years. Damn! Nothing major will happen and the plot will not advance at all. But I still get excited whenever a volume drops lol!

    Cosplayer Jennifer Van Damsel was used as reference for Captain Marvel on a cover for Civil War II The Oath issue 1. That's pretty cool! I saw her at New York Comic Con last year cosplaying as Cammy.

    There should be a hard limit on how many iterations or spin-offs a character has.

    A few here and a few there are fine, but they've really stretched the gamma thing thin.

    Let's see of the Gamma Mutates of note(current and former) we have Hulk, Shulk, Rulk, Shrulk, TA Hulk, Lyra, Doc Sampson, Leader, Cosmic Hulk, a new bootleg Ross/Rulk, Abomination, A-Bomb, and most recently Teen Abomination.


    Actually you know what, I'm pissed, I want Skaar back.

    Yeah i'd rather they just pushed Sif or Valkyrie to the front.

    I would say they should have pushed Skaar(he is a teenager technically) instead of hulking out Cho, and just had Cho be on the team as the Prince of Power again.

    But then they'd have Skaar being more PG that i'd want. I mean it's not like he was slicing dudes in half towards the end of his prominence either, but still.

    "Mustang" has a cool sleeper agent dynamic and all of the actions scenes are pretty cool. It's a pretty great origin story IMO. Only problem is Marvel fucking axed it after a big set of cliffhangers, and its been three years and he's only been in SHIELD books really. I really want to know how those things resolved.

    Looking forward to the Gundam Wing manga the Glory of Losers. It retells the story from the TV anime but replaces the mecha with the mecha from Endless Waltz. Since Endless Waltz says the mecha always looked that way (the designs in the show were not popular). So it should be more official than the TV anime, at least visually. It should drop in the Summer.

    Nice. Somehow, we're keeping the Comic Book Forum alive. Barely.

    Currently reading:

    X-Men: X-Corps tpb - this collects Joe Casey's run on Uncanny that took place while Morrison was writing Adjective-less. It's a pretty strange group of stories with an oddball team made up of Archangel, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Chamber, and a new girl.

    Catwoman vol. 1 by Brubaker - The Darwyn Cooke one-shot that started out the book was pretty solid, first few issues of Bru are promising.

    Prophet vol. 5 - sad to see this crazy series finish up

    I think the top 5 is accurate. Bottom 5 is when things get murky. There's no way that Tim is bottom.

    Prime Time!
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    Finally reading Casey's Uncanny run, I see. Good stuff, P.Gabby. It didn't get enough love when it was coming out. Seems like in the past few years, its reputation has somehow improved. I've been a fan since the beginning. The thing that mars the run is the uneven (and lousy) art, particularly in the early issues. Issue 400, the annual, and the last few issues are some of the best X-Men comics of my lifetime. I guess Casey wasn't really feeling it, though. Uncanny, especially the Sean Phillips issues, kinda feels like a proto-Wildcats, especially with the stuff about Archangel's company that Casey sort of hinted bigger things for.

    Rest in Power, COOKE. We will always have Catwoman. I still flip through and reread that run every so often. "Relentless" is one of the most exciting and emotionally intense arcs, and the three-parter after it ("No Easy Way Down") remains one of the boldest and illest indie comics masquerading as a superhero comic.

    I need to read the end of Prophet. That was a crazy, creative series. Every individual issue was a cosmic delicacy, a true cornucopia of wild science fiction and offbeat but emotional storytelling.

    Agree. Tim's been getting the shaft since New 52 de-aged him.

    Invincible is getting movie produced my Seth Rogen.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. Seriously. With all the lore Invincible has built, I'd prefer a well done television show.

    The Great Lakes Avengers 2016 run is pretty fun.

    I really wish Mr. Immortal would get a solo series, I just find the concept of him great.

    I, for one, am excited as all heck. Seth Rogen is the ultimate definition of a double-threat: 1) He is a screenwriting savant, as made evident by his inimitable screenplay for the recent classic The Green Hornet, and 2) He is an emotional chameleon (also evident in his legendary starring role in The Green Hornet) capable of exhibiting the full spectrum of human sensations through his adroit body language, timely facial expressions, and masterful vocal modulation.

    Translating Invincible into a movie will be no problem for one of Hollywood's greatest living maestros. Plus, he's clearly an avowed comic book fan himself. In addition to The Green Hornet, he also produced the Preacher TV series. I expect the Invincible movie to quickly spin off its universe into a sprawling group of franchises including Guardians of the Globe, Battle Pope, Tech Jacket, The Astounding Wolf-Man, etc. Seth Rogen would be a perfect Allen the Alien.

    Picked up the Titans Vol.1 The Return of Wally West TPB. Looks like it will be a fun read and that new suit for Wally is growing on me.

    Also got the first two TPBs of Superman under the Rebirth line. Loving the whole family dynamic. Damien Wayne needs to fall face first on a rusty spear head and not get retconned back to life.

    Waiting for my TPB of The Flash by Mark Waid Book Two to come in the mail.
