The Great 2011 DC Relaunch - 52 New #1's in September

Yeah...what Bamfette said. Basically, the better the sales were before the reboot, the more of the continuity they're keeping. If the book was tanking, it got a heftier overhaul. I've also changed my pull list since that original list, due to more information coming out over the intervening time. I'...

I'm an old man. I have no idea who that is in the picture or what a "Smush" is. :p

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

And c'mon - who didn't want AoA Darkholme to hitch a ride back when Marvel teased that Mark Brooks preview art of the AoA/UXF fight back in the spring? DUDE. When I saw the previews for that crossover, without having read an X-Book in FIVE YEARS , I immediately thought "It would be AWESOME for AoA ...

Thundercats Reboot

I am totally into the new Thundercats. So far, it's really engaging and fun. Getting the old Lion-O to do the voice of the king was AWESOME. My only problem so far with it is that I'm a bigtime Tygra fan. I love his costume, I love his character design, I love his new backstory and attitude...but I ...

Who's this "Crawler" guy, and why is he moderating?

Hello, all. My name is Christopher, and I was the original founder of this place. Back in the day, some 14 years ago, I created The Nightcrawler Monument on a free message board host and invited the community from the Nightcrawler thread on the old Wizard World forums and the community was born.

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

If I had any confidence that AoA Kurt would be handled in an intelligent manner, I wouldn't have as big a problem with his incorporation. Unfortunately, I consider the writing in the X-books to have deteriorated in the last five or six years to shock and cliche'. In my opinion, Remender is doing wo...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

Ult, I like a bit of moral complexity in comics, but to me, the questions X-Force were faced with weren't all that complex. That they dithered about the ethics of murdering a child is a strike against them as not just heroes, but even just decent human beings. The child in question was an indoctrin...

Digital Comics -- Can They Make The Leap?

Well, a rented movie on Netflix is the same experience as a rented movie from a store...except cheaper and you didn't have to leave the house. However, just like reading and e-book on a Kindle or iPad is a different experience than having the physical book, reading a digital comic is a different exp...

Digital Comics -- Can They Make The Leap?

So your big problem with the existence of digital comics is that people think it's a good idea? Print comics are not going away, and digital comics will no more replace or "kill" print comics than Netflix has eliminated movie theaters. Print and digital comics are not the same thing, as many have po...

2011's big DC Crossover Event - Flashpoint (starring The Flash)

Flashpoint is a huge event, spanning 65 issues in all, and completely changing the DCU. The substantiated rumor is that Flashpoint is the in-story cause of the relaunch / reboot of the entire DC line coming in September. But for now, it's just good reads. In a nutshell, The Flash and Booster Gold se...

With the HUGE DC relaunch coming in September (52 new #1's!) they're also beginning Day-and-date digital distribution, which I think is definitely a step in the right direction. All titles will be released through comixology the same day as they are released through comic shops...and at the same pri...

I'm alive and my eyes are still (barely) in their sockets. I spent all day yesterday staring at code, but it's finally done.

I give you ChocolateShoes.net!

And I even updated the comic for yesterday and today.

Hope you dig!

"Pride of Baghdad"

Pride was so good.

Simply put, Vaughan "gets" war.

And it was beautifully written, with the main story playing metaphor for its own setting.

I could go on, but it's better to just read it. So just read it!

Nasty? They're the fun bits! And people keep them all bundled up and hidden away and it's just a shame, really.

Although I've seen enough porn to know that some people really SHOULD keep them hidden away.
