Re: Jsa

1) Find a reliable source of comics about the characters from that era, most likely in collections or digital forms. 2) Read them until you're familiar with the source material, enough to really know the characters, the types of stories of that era, etc. 3) Use those stories as inspiration for your ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Arabian Magic! Warriors of Fate! Cheers! Sam & Diane!)

It's kind of funny. I used to watch Frasier pretty regularly for the longest time, but I don't know that I've seen an entire episode of Cheers from start to finish. I've seen clips of it, I know about it via pop culture osmosis, but I never really watched the show at all, and thus have no real perso...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

This one was a lot of fun, and kind of heart-warming. The humor works because of the principal characters involved, since Drax and Mantis both have limited understanding of human society along with very dissonant codes of conduct. It helps that the movie goes by Rule of Funny, so no one gets (badly...

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

I just saw this last night with my brother on Disney+, and it was a lot of fun. It gets a solid recommend from me.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Shakira! Jennifer! Deimos! Claw! Arak- Son of Thunder!)

Arak was a fun book, going with a "all myths / religions are true" approach and generally treating them all pretty respectfully. A neat twist was that it was presented as something of "the last days of the Mythic Age", where the Greek / Roman gods had left Earth, the supernatural...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warlord! Machiste! Shakira! Jennifer Morgan!)

There was a modern version of Claw that appeared in the short lived Primal Force comic that came out after the Zero Hour event. It was meant to be the 'supernatural superheroes / exploring the dark corners of the DCU' book, but I bought it primarily because Red Tornado was on the team. The book was ...

One of the very few things I actually liked about it.
I found the side stories way better than the event itself. Convergence Shazam was a joy to read.

Re: The Coyote Den

I've been reading a web-comic called Dragon Ball Multiverse that did a similar premise to the Tournament of Power, but had it so that we go alternate realities where certain characters win, thus allowing it to be a greatest hits of fighters from across Dragon Ball lore, along with a few unique origi...

Re: The Coyote Den

An ongoing joke over in DBZ Abridged was how completely disinterested the creators were with Jiren. Anytime they had a meeting and Jiren came up, someone would say something snarky, like yawning while saying how "interesting" Jiren was. Heck, the last episode of the series took a potshot a...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (8-Ball! Omega the Unknown! Ulysses Bloodstone!)

I honestly love the concept of Ulysses Bloodstone. He's basically a heroic Vandal Savage that dedicated himself to hunting monsters, which is awesome. He has access to this whole Highlander style history of being involved in things, he could be someone who faced guys like Apocalypse and Dracula in t...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Erik the Red! 8-Ball! Iron Mask! Omega the Unknown!)

You know, while I empathize with Gerber's desire to tell "meaningful stories", his desire to own his creations (even though he knew what creating things for Marvel meant) and his frustration at his career . . . the man sounds like a pain in the butt to deal with.

I've said it before, but I love the new logo and these write ups are a solid way of summarizing the characters to new readers. Thanks! It's been a great way to practice how to be more succinct in describing these characters . Easier said than done, lol. Heh, believe me, if anyone can relate, it's m...
