Busy week as I'm sure everyone else is right there as well.

...and here we go. :)

13 Coins #1 - Another reason to go through the entire previews catalog.  Simon Bizley is one of my favourite artists and his Lobo stuff is just second to none.  Having not seen him too much, I was excited to see that he had a book coming out from Titan Comics.  This is a limited series, 6 issues I think.  A nice little heaven and hell war story and the Biz is perfect for this.  Good first issue. 7.5/10

Axis #3 - The battle against the Red Onslaught continues in this issue! Magneto's brought in some villain flavour to mix things up, including Dr. Doom.  Some awesome art work by Leinil Yu make it a pleasure to read.  This is a big slobber knocker issue and at the end.... Dr. Doom gonna Dr. Doom. ;) Some Deadpool humour as well as a bit of a change for Evan and things don't really get better between the Avengers and X-men. 8.5/10

Lazarus #12 - I've said it before and I'll say it again, Lazarus is one of the best books out there and I don't really know what to say if you're not picking this up.  Fantastic work by Michael Lark who has captured the setting of this book since the beginning, perfectly.  This was a lower key issue, more political stuff going on and Forever gets put in a position that she's definitely not used to. 9/10

Multiversity: The Just - I haven't heard a lot from any of you gents about these books.  Is no one reading this?  Normally, or at least lately, Grant Morrison is usually good for one thing - confusing the fuck out of me.  I don't know what it is in this situation, whether it's the fact that these books play off as purely "elseworlds" types of stories, or what but I'm actually really enjoying them.  Ben Oliver's art here is really gorgeous and it's never hard to get through a book when the art is this good looking.  Anyway, great issue! 8.5/10

First POWERS trailer - Coming to PSN this December :)

13 October 2014 - 10:43 AM

Two reasons I'm posting this here.

1 - It's based on the awesome comic series by Brian Bendis and Michael Oeming
2 - I don't think it would get much attention on the main Entertainment board

I've been preaching Powers for a long time now.  I'm not sure how many people have heeded this wise advice, but nevertheless, it's an amazing book and some of Brian Bendis' best writing efforts.

Finally after much negotiations with FX and even a pilot shot and nothing happening, Powers the tv show is coming to the PlayStation Network this December and it will be amazing.

Check out the trailer!

I guess everyone's just as crazy busy as me lately! :o  I've really barely had a chance to read the huge stack that I have.

If you feel inclined, What ya bought, What ya thought!

What the eff is a promotional balance and why is it expiring!?

02 August 2014 - 12:34 AM

I added money to my wallet on the Xbox One some time ago.  All of a sudden I get an email from Microsoft saying that it's a "promotional" balance and it's expiring at the end of September.

What exactly the fuck is Microsoft trying to pull here?  I pay for a card to add money and they throw on an expiration date.

Anyone else run into this?
