    He still lives in Glasgow, is there a chance of bumping into him?
    There's a very good chance of running into him, and I hope I'm going 100 miles an hour when it happens.


    ouch

    I know, it's big but I really needed to share this with my buddies here in DC Comics. In ALL the years he has been drawing comics, Liefeld has not improved at like...all.

    Let's highlight what I can tell easily that is wrong:

    1. Feet were conveniently left out, they prove to difficult to get right.
    2. Why is Dove's fingers all the same length?
    3. Those hips don't lie.
    4. WHERE IS OTHER DOVE'S ARM?!

    Took out the picture since it's big, but hahahah. This is so true. Seeing Liefeld's art today makes me cringe even though I don't remember having a big problem with it back in the 90s when I was a kid. I'm really not sure what it is. CBR had another Liefeld image in their Twitter art post for the 52 Reboot and it was just terrible. Some guy in a gray suit in a chair...?

    Snyder is on the main Batman book? Hmm, tempted to give it a try now.

    Anyone who hasnt read it, it is now mandatory for you ALL to get the three Flashpoint Batman issues. SOOOO good, words cannot describe that work of art.

    Probably the best new comic I read this year, hands down.

    Called early and had TMNT and Batman, Inc tossed into my folder to be safe. Also exchanging comic doubles I got by accident for what I wanted.

    Batman, Inc. #8 and Superman Beyond #0 were claimed by me.

    Can anyone tell me wihen the next Batman Beyond issue drops, and if the #0 SB issue is to test the waters for a series?

    Well that wraps it up for Gates of Gotham

    damn I loved this mini. really makes me hopeful things to come with Snyder and Higgins. He did alright by Cassandra Cain and that means he's a-ok in my book. and damn I loved the art

    Finished reading the Batman Arkham City mini. Pretty good story and artwork to match, but you can probably skip this comic altogether and jump right into the Arkham City video game with no real problems. Which was probably done intentionally to be fair.

    Anyway Robin showed up in it and... I really haven't been keeping up with the game and stuff but he had blonde hair? Who the hell is that supposed to be? OG blonde Jason Todd?

    Don't get me wrong Arkham Asylum is a great game but my biggest gripe with it is the character designs suck and it looks like I'm not going to like them in Arkham City either. The only character that looked good in Arkham Asylum was Joker because they pretty much left him alone. I just wish they did the same for everybody. None of the designs were broke and none of them needed fixing. I'm still getting Arkham City but I wish the character designs, particularly the costumes were better. Catwoman looks good in the new game, but once again they left her design alone for the most part.

    Well if it is Tim Drake Robin in Arkham City I guess dying your hair blonde is one way to hide your secret identity...

    Justice League 90s Retrospective was hilarious and great. It was written by Keith, J M DeMatties with beautiful art by Kevin Maguire.
    If you're looking for a good laugh definetly pick this up.
    Sigh Giffen era JL is best JL (even if they don't have Aquaman)

    Good luck, I am still waiting on Flashpoint issue #2 and #4, along with FF #2. Diamond is being dicks lately since they are the only large distribution of comics, they set things at their own pace.

    Got my copy of JL#1 tonight at a midnight release. So far # 1 is going on a good start. They even had a raffle for the 25$ variant cover, I got that amazing luck lol.
    I also picked up 1-5 flashpoint. The moment I saw zoom on the front cover for #5 had to get it.

    @flashpoint - Ah I get it now lol.

    I dont see the point of a midnight comic release, what a dumb idea. Especially when said comic is like 30 pages and resolves nothing. Even for DVD/BD releases it boggles my mind.

    Games are cool though.

    First issue of JL was a good read.

    Cyborg starting out as a JLer bugs me, it's Smallville all over again. But in the sketches in the back they call him a 'Titan to be.' I guess if he eventually joins the Teen Titans it's cool.

    I guess they got tired of using John Stewart as their media black dude, time for Cyborg to step in and take the load off.

    So my local comic shop owner told me Stormwatch is perhaps a series worth keeping an eye on in the relaunch. What do you guys think?
  • SanoSano SRKSANO on PS4 Joined: Posts: 13,062 mod
    Yeah I think I'm sticking to JL, Action Comics, Nightwing, Batman and Robin, Outsiders, Teen Titans and Swamp Thing for now. If you try Stormwatch let us know how it is.

    Lol I remembered that Cyborg and Firestorm were the newest characters on Hanna Barbara's Super Powers cartoon. I guess there's some precedence for Cyborg starting out on Justice League, other than Smallville.

    Not sure if he's even going to join the JL right away and they might just be retelling his origin. The current JL story is a flashback story and the book will eventually take place in current time like the other books. Maybe Cyborg will join then. Hmm.

    Justice League was interesting, not much there other than macho throw my super dick around moments between the boys but eh. I liked it for what it was.

    My 52 pull list that I can remember: Detective Comics, Batman, Nightwing, Green Arrow, JL, Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, Flash, the Demon one.

    Might get GL and JLI but dunno.

    Started my catch up and I loved Superman Beyond 0, I haven't raed much DeFalco, but I liked this from him. If there are more issues I hope they'll be as good as this one.

    Ok so I just read DC's preview of the new 52 and I gotta ask... Why so many Batman titles? There's like four just for Bruce Wayne. I'm not really a DC reader so I don't know how these titles are different from one another.

    Anyway there are a handful I'm interested in. Good time to get into DC.

    It's because everyone loves Batman and his books sell is all. The same reason Marvel puts Wolverine and Spider-Man in everything.

    Batman won our character fan poll a while back. Hell people are talking about Batman in the Marvel thread. :rofl:

    Mainly picking up Batman and Robin because I loved Tomasi on this book and Nightwing before. Aside from that waiting for Morrison's Batman Inc. to return and wrap up. Kind of tired of Tony Daniel and not familiar with the other Bat writers.

    So Sano, think one could be made?

    Character poll rules, mostly because I helped create it...I think.

    Also don't hate on Batman, you can never get enough Batman seriously. If you complain, you are a commie.

    Yeah it was your idea, in response to IGN's horrible top 100 comic book characters list. Our list was better. No Garfield. :rofl:

    Have you read the comic strip lately? It hasn't been funny in over 20 years. Joint was hysterical in the beginning, but the older Jim Davis got the more his sense of humor went out the window. Same thing happened to Schulz with Peanuts, but at least he had Rerun to give us a laugh here and there. Jim Davis has lots of characters he put out to pasture, it's basically the Garfield, Odie and Jon show. Either Garfield complains about Monday, eats a lot, kicks Odie off the table or makes fun of Jon being a dork. Wash / rinse / repeat for two decades...

    That alone should auto ban Garfield from the top 100 anything. Maybe a comic strip specific poll only (and I still wouldn't rank him that high) but one that's supposed to represent the spectrum of all comics? Um yeah how about NO.


    Anyway, I read Action Comics and to my surprise I'm not impressed. This is supposed to be a younger Superman right? Well he's already in Metropolis, already best friends with Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane and Lex Luthor were in issue one. So what seperates this from a regular Superman comic exactly? That he's a jerk, wearing jeans and working for a rival newspaper? Um okay...

    It did have a strong ending and Lex continues to show why he's the man so there was that.

    I'll hang in there because of Grant Morrison for a little while and hope there's a reason why he's doing what he's doing.
