Scrawlers Tour Guide to the World

Andong? Poor girl. It's nice for a weekend but it would be very lonely to live out there. After a few years even Seoul is too lonely. I fit into the (X)L local size so I get to shop in Myeongdong and the other cool places. Itaewon is only good for getting drunk and eating pies. And banging American ...

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

I'm interested in darker and edgier Nightcrawler and always have been. My first solid impression of the character came from Giantsized X-Men 1, which I found in b&w paperback form at a garage sale for a nickel when I was a kid. Shrieking from the rooftops and finally leaping into the crowd to go dow...

The New 52 : Detective Comics

This is the one where I'm most looking forward to the next issue. That was how I picked which books were best in my list: how much I want to read #2. If the writing was mediocre, I didn't notice. ;) I wonder if anything more is going to happen with the girl he rescued. She seemed like such an obviou...

The New 52: Justice League International

I was expecting to hate this after that review, but I didn't. I thought it was really cute. A nice change of mood from the darker books. They're definitely setting Booster Gold up for some major leadership fuck-ups which I would like to see. I didn't mind that all the other characters weren't develo...

Hopping on the band wagon, which required actually reading all of these number 1s.

The New 52: Animal Man

It starts out really slow, even after I got past the first page I kept thinking "Oh, this again" until about the middle of the book. Then it goes nuts. (But never quite loses that sense of deja vu.) I really wonder how it would look to someone with no previous knowledge of the character. This is the...

this coffee tastes astounding!

I cleaned my apartment, which is nice, but the really exciting part was that I found a huge stash of earplugs. I'd been wondering how I got through like $20 worth of earplugs so quickly after my last trip "home". I got to throw out the yucky pair I've been using for way too long, what a beautiful day.

The New 52: Swamp Thing

I'm probably missing out on some stuff people familiar with the character would pick up on but they explained enough (without looking like they were explaining anything) that it can stand alone. I don't feel like I'm missing anything which is the important part.

Been dabbling in coloring

Great work, actually. I would recommend working a little more on blending a couple of the shadows, but that's about it. I'd actually say the opposite and that there's too much blending going on. Good idea of where the highlights should go, but they are all blurry which gives everything a kind of sa...

Classic X-Men

I remember when the Uncanny X-Cast guys were reviewing these old issues. They found it agonizing to get through them. I think they did something like five a week, and it was a tough quota to meet.

After reading the reviews here I wanted to see how it would look to a complete newcomer. I don't know Swamp Thing at all, but this was cool. You definitely don't need to know anything about anything to enjoy it.

I'm not really excited about any of them other than Uncanny X-Force because I know what to expect there. And it's good. I'll wait for the reviews to decide which ones to check out. The line-ups are all uninspiring to me, but a good writer can do great things with any characters... ... even Rogue and...

That said, I found the Justice League (notice the elimination of "of America," preventing me from shortening it to JLA) to be a bit...bland. It's not bad , it's just not what I had been hoping for. Bland is exactly how I'd describe most DC superhero titles that I've attempted to read, so I guess I ...

The government knows exactly what the problem is, they're all just pretending they don't.

To answer the question they are greedy psychopathic self-serving and ultimately evil.

What happened to her anyway? Last I heard she had a stroke despite being young and extremely healthy, because CC wanted to write about his own stroke in a comic book.
