Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

Astro City was never a Vertigo title.

Re: DC Cancels Vertigo

If they didn't sell, these companies would have been out of business decades ago. Dark Horse is nothing BUT boutique books, they have almost no original properties, they specialize in those types of properties. Actually. Dark Horse. Dynamite, and IDW make the bulk of their money from licensed prope...

Re: DC Cancels Vertigo

Dynamite: The boutique books didn't sell. IDW: The boutique books didn't sell. Dark Horse: The boutique books didn't sell. That's four different publishers (including DC) where the majority of those boutique books didn't sell. You mentioned Gaiman's books and Preacher. Again. Only a couple of succes...

Re: DC Cancels Vertigo

There were good parts of Vertigo? Since when? It was the bastion of boutique comics that would have never gotten any support any place else. And frankly, Vertigo's existence had been nothing but to DC's detriment. Sucking off resources desperately needed to improve the quality of the main line. It p...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

Was it? Cuz, in my circle, they're split. But you're right, I'm not a Godzilla fan. I much preferred Pacific Rim (the first movie.) I'm a fan of Pacific Rim as well. It has its own charm. Godzilla is something else entirely. And i'm not really keen on seeing the two mix. Because it would result in ...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

The humans were the big problem with the movie. They had way too much focus. They should be there to provide some narration and some side story. And not much else. This was a chance for them to really do it big and provide a really spot on Godzilla experience. But again they missed the point. And I ...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

Compared to the previous Godzilla 2014, this movie at least had a sense of agency for the human characters, which was a big part of the development of the story and, in my opinion, made sense. Not only Monarch was founded to study and counter the kaiju, but this version of Godzilla (and the other k...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

I just got back from seeing Godzilla King Of The Monsters. The movie was a good solid Godzilla film. And I only had a couple of minor nitpicks. But otherwise? It was a great movie. My first complaint: Way too much concentration on the humans. Humans are supposed to be largely incidental in a Godzill...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

I heard that it relies too much on smoke effects, shaky cam, human acting and other obscuring effects that get in the way of the action, is this true? That criticism is true of Godzilla 2014. I will be seeing Godzilla King Of The Monsters tomorrow morning. After that, I will be able to tell you if ...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

Godzilla Aftershock is a sequel to Godzilla 2014. It covers an encounter between Godzilla and a new monster called the MUTO Prime.

The story itself is self contained. But I seriously recommend getting it. It's a great book.

I just got the prequel graphic novel in the mail. Godzilla Aftershock. I'm going to read through it and post my opinion of it. But without spoilers.

Godzilla King Of The Monsters

I got tickets to see this for myself and my mom. We will be going next saturday. at 11:05 am Pacific time. I will post here my opinion here on whether it was good or not. But I won't do spoilers. Yes, I do know there was another thread based on this movie. But I hate the thread title. So I posted my...
