Re: The most petty thing you'd do as a comics creator

In Marvel? Fire all modern day writers, artists, and editors. Then roll back the timeline of the Marvel Universe to occurring just before the original Secret Wars. After that: Establish a house style that is more in keeping with the Bronze Age Marvel style. When Marvel was at its greatest. Pre-Mille...

Re: Star Trek vs. Transformers

My one regret with this? That Nimoy didn't live long enough to voice act this as an animated movie.

We all know Shatner would do it in a heartbeat.

Star Trek vs. Transformers

This is the crossover comic limited series nobody would have believed would work. But it does. And it is glorious!

Generation One Transformers colliding with Star Trek: The Animated Series. It is as crazy as one would think it would be. And more!

More comics these days need to be this kind of fun!

Re: Small Press Comic Companies - Talk About Em Here

I'm horrified by the behavior. That so-called professionals would even think of attacking customers and critics. It's bad business. And the publishers shouldn't be putting up with it for a second.

I finally saw this movie on Netflix yesterday.

I enjoyed it. It was a nice movie.

Re: Transformers Generations Power Of The Primes.

I didn't like the name change either. Slug doesn't fit the character at all. They should have chosen something else.

Why is the triceratops Slug instead of Slag?
It was changed because Slag is a an obcene word in the UK.

I'm not defending it. Just stating why Hasbro changed it many years ago.

Transformers Generations Power Of The Primes.

I managed to get a complete set of all new Dinobots toys. This has been the first full set of the original Dinobots released since the 80's. But they also include a feature that has been begged for by Transformers fans since Transformers The Movie. They combine! Volcanicus is the name of the combine...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

There has always been more to Jean Grey than the Phoenix. She has a ton of story potential that hasn't really been tapped. Because the writers treated her as secondary at best. She was always supposed to be the heart and conscience of the X-Men. That's a vital role. Not a secondary one. It makes her...

You wanna know why they did that?Now,mind,this is just a rumor i heard,so take all this for the grain of salt it's worth........

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

I paid for Phoenix Resurrection: The Return Of jean Grey though the online comic book store I get my books through now. Well every week of release of that series, CBR.com shamelessly spoiled literally every issue the day each came out. And it genuinely made me angry at them. Because they ruined my r...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

The other obsession that DC has that is annoying to the extreme is: Jack Kirby's Fourth World characters. There is no time in which they are not ever-present. They are always seeing use somewhere in DC's books. It's a nonstop onslaught. The writers act like they have no other characters to write sto...

DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

DC merging Watchmen into the main DC Universe only elicits one response from me. That I will take my money and spend it elsewhere. I do not like Watchmen. I never have. It is not the type of story I find entertaining. And its influence has become ever-present in modern comics. To the point that it i...
