Topics I've Started

Would any comic fans like to join SoberChef and I as our third chair for Day1patch'...

20 April 2015 - 06:13 PM

Most of our comic fans post in here, so I thought I would ask here first. @SoberChef and I decided our third chair will be rotating, and we would love to have any of you guys join us. The format will be pretty simple, the only thing you are required to do is talk about comics. First, we will talk about the comics released in the two weeks previous which we have read. No spoilers, just broad strokes and our own thoughts them. Did you enjoy the issue, has it pushed ahead the broader storyline?
Next will be about media and news in the comic industry. Pick two news pieces, announcements, upcoming movies/animated movies you are excited for, or things that are angering/upsetting you about the industry. No comics, just comic media.
Third is one of the topics I am most excited about. Each podcaster will choose a comic series, Graphic Novel, or Trade Paperback from the past that they enjoy. This can be as old as the 1938 (or older if you can find something pre-superman), or as new as up to two years ago. That will be the upper limit, any newer and we are just getting into the territory of recent comic history, and too close to current story lines.
Fourth will be upcoming comics from the next two weeks in our pull lists.
Fifth is Toy Time, where we talk about the toys we own, owned as children, or can't wait for. Each podcaster will pick a toy they enjoy or enjoyed to talk about.
Sixth will be us wrapping up, talking about random industry topics, upcoming events, writers and artists whose work we enjoy. We will finish up with general shit talking, notice of upcoming events, cons and such. This will be the most unstructured part of the podcast.


Who is up first? Just post here saying you want in, and we will take members first come, first serve, as long as you regularly read comics!

For those who want to watch the best Batman movie ever made

18 April 2015 - 12:47 PM

Here it is. I'm sure many of you have seen it, as its on Netflix. I have two versions on Bluray, A two part version, and a single Deluxe edition where its together as one movie, and includes a bunch of extras on the disk.



And as another great Batman movie, though not as near as good as DKR, honorable mention goes to Year One.


If you could turn a comic series into a movie series, what would you pick?

Personally, I would have to go with The Invisibles, with 100 Bullets as a runner up. Grant Morrisons Invisibles is one of the best series I have ever read outside of DC's superhero universe (Yes, I know Vertigo is still DC). I still remember picking up the first issue, unsure about it, but I've always had faith in Morrison. By the ed of that issue, I went straight to the comic shop to pick up the next two (those were the only comics released at the time), and then read every issue created after that. I cannot remember a single bad issue, and it would fit perfectly into a movie world.

So, lets have it. What are yours?

Looking for New 52 Batman Issue 25 Variants..

11 March 2015 - 06:32 PM

The only variants I'm missing amongst my monthly subs. I need all three of the variants, I have the original.

I need the blue lined/blue logo version of the original. the grey/black variant, and the one with batman in front of a skull of light, hands reaching toward the reader. Ill add links.

I'll pay the going rates, and add a nice finder fee. Find more than one, bugger finder fee :) And of course i'll have them shipped, preferably in a comic shipping box I will provide, but any box will do as long as its sturdy enough to protect them. I don't expect anyone to go looking, just to look out for them when you are browsing your favorite comic shop, and if you see them, I will either e-mail or paypal the money so you can pick the stuff up once you recieve the cash.

Last nights Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the best of the series so far.

A few years ago, when all the new Superhero TV Shows were announced, First Arrow from DC/CW, then SHIELD was announced, Flash was getting talked about soon after, then the slew of Netflix shows that are coming, I would never believe that DC would lead the way with great superhero tv shows.

I am a longtime DC fanboy, and Green Arrow is one of my favorite superhero's of all time, along with Batman, Green Lantern (Preferably Hal Jordan), and Swamp Thing. DC/Vertigo Comics have long been the best and most interesting line of comics out there. They have been known to let their universes sprawl a bit too large, but the important titles are fantastic. The New 52 product line has by and large been fantastic. Not everything can pull big numbers, but they have introduced some fantastic reimagined characters, and tweakled others who had become far too powerful (Superman), and kept their best characters interesting (The whole Batman, superman, Flash, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and so many others, have just killed it. Suicide Squad, Justice League, JLA, Sinestro. I can go on and on, and I don't think that Marvel can compete, in the COMIC arena.

We all know that DC will never be able to make movies at the caliber and frequency that Marvel and now Marvel/Disney can. And with Joss Whedon running your universe, very little can go wrong (as Fox isn't pulling the strings, pricks). So if you would have told me 4 years ago that DC's Arrow, and now Flash, would be better, or even able to compete with a Marvel TV series, I would have called you a nutbar. In no part of the multiverse could that be possible...  Except for this one. Again with Agent Carter, they have dropped the ball (IMO), though Gotham is a horrrible experiment as well.

THIS WEEK THOUGH!!! Fucking fantastic.

Spoiler

I havent beeen around in a bit, and haven't kept up on peoples opinions of it. So, what does everyone here think? Can it be saved? Or do you enjoy it already? And if you watched this weeks show, how did you like it?
