Re: The Matrix of Friendship?!

I'd rank it a bit under Transformer/Ghostbusters, but it's still a pretty high bar. Must find this. Because I would never have thought in a million years that those two notions would go together... Star Trek and Transformers I can see... but Ghostbusters ? Well, in G1 canon Starscream became a ghos...

Re: The Matrix of Friendship?!

Well. The first issue is out. It's actually kind of cool, and respectful of both properties. I'd say that it's about as good as the Transformers/Ghostbusters crossover, while not quite equaling the Transformers/Star Trek crossover or the ongoing Transformers/Terminator crossover. I'd rank it a bit ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Chapel! Photon! Badrock! Diehard! Riptide!)

Most likely. The only one of the early Image guys that seemed to give any real thought to a kind of pecking order for strength was Eric Larsen, as he had a definite hierarchy with his own creations. Though if I had to come up with a pecking order I'd probably go: Rank 11 - Hulk (sufficiently angry)...

I'm guessing some kind of delinquent is up next.

Re: Jim Valentino

I think that part of the bad blood between Valentino and McFarlane came from the fact that Jim Valentino was the only founder of Image that remained on decent terms with other companies. He occasionally moonlighted for Marvel (mostly on secondary titles like War Machine) and even worked for Valiant...

Re: Jim Valentino

IMAGE CREATORS- JIM VALENTINO: [/u] -Jim Valentino was the oldest and least-popular of the Image Creators, having been known primarily for a 50-issue run of Guardians of the Galaxy . He deliberately countered the "grim 'n' gritty" '90s stuff with a more "fun" comic, but quit to co-found Image. His ...

Yeah, I know that its painfully Edgelord, but I love this picture. The whole samurai-ko leaving a trail of blood is really nicely presented.
I agree.

Re: J-Mart Prime: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Archangel

The problem with Bobby/Iceman is that he's really the everyman of the team, but he was creared way before this concept was popular. A lot of his characterization pivoted around the idea of hin being "just a guy from neighbourhood", rather than a supergenius (like Hank), a professional superhero (lik...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warblade! Grifter! Zealot! Voodoo! Maul!)

tvtropes tells more on the Deathmate storyline: Deathmate was a 6-part comic book crossover between Valiant Comics and Image Comics, published from September 1993 to February 1994. Here, ladies and gentlemen, is a tragic story. Once there were two friends who worked at two different comic companies...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warblade! Grifter! Zealot! Voodoo! Maul!)

So far I've not commented because I really never got into early Image stuff, especially WildC.A.T.s. I don't know why. On one hand none of designs really appeals to me, which is really weird, but that's not the case. In the early 90s I was insanely into Valiant stuff... And sure as hell those design...

Re: J-Mart Prime: Electrocutioner, Graviton, Captain Stingaree, The Cavalier, Batroc's Brigade

It's just Duela Dent in her latest stolen identity. Yesterday, she was Joker's Daughter. Today she's Batroc's Daughter. Tomorrow, she'll show up in the 30th century DCU with a purple winged fez and a stolen magic wand and call herself Mordru's Daughter. How does she get around, between continuities...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Spiral! Super-Brood! The Human Fly! Due South!)

As I said a while ago on the Discord server, Due South has something of a cult following in Italy. When I was in high school, the series was aired in a late afternoon/early evening slot which was the moment most teenagers were watching the TV. I got a good laugh out of it, but wasn't a big fan, most...
