  1. I feel like it's an appropriate day to bump this
  2. As much as I like Ultimate Marvel, I like the All Star concept better. Instead of taking top notch talent and have them creating a new continuity, you take that same creative energy and put them in "regular" continuity, or at least one close to it. And the shocker for me? Quitely's Superman! While I love his work in JLA: Earth 2, his Superman had that grim gritty look still. But here he's created a Superman rivalling Alex Ross.
  3. Jingle bells... Batman smells... Robin laid an egg... The Batmobile lost its wheel... And the Joker got away. Merry Christmas from one fanboy to another (I wish I had a toy Batmobile to mess with, but oh well)
  4. Damn, I wish they were bigger pics! And I thought they were about the DC Direct/Marvel Legends scale? Still, if they're cool looking I'll have to check them out.
  5. Yeah, it was called Pushback but since it was late most of the time it had to be cut off in time for War Games. So really, it seems like #60 is the conclusion to Pushback. Personally, I like the story. Hush now has a personality and we get to know him better. The twist totally blew me away. And I also love how the title gives the issue away then has "Spoilers" after it
  6. I prefer my Mattel Mr. Freeze but I would really like to own a Freeze with a suit more like the animated one when he first appeared. I'm not too keen on Croc. But Man-Bat... HOLY CRAP! For sure I'm getting him!
  7. SPOILERS! Well, you're partially right! Wantanabe is claiming to be Ra's but really it's Ducard (Neeson) who's actually Ra's. He's not Ubu from what I remember in the script. Actually, I don't remember Ubu in the script at all come to think of it.
  8. I'm guessing these are reissues from the 90s Spidey cartoon? Interesting.
  9. I've read the script and for about 50 minutes (1 page of a script usually equals a minute), it's all about Bruce Wayne. But I think it's worth it because we see him train and the drive to become Batman. And when he does appear, it's friggin slick. The wait for Batman to appear in costume is worth it.
  10. I'd buy that for a dollar And just to help out guessing, I did a quick cut, paste, and flip... ...okay, it might not help much but it does gives us a better look at the victim without us turning our heads on the computer. What's odd is that the above image doesn't seem to have a mask, but the bottom one looks like Blue Beetle's goggles.
  11. Yep, that's how I picture Superman. In that episode where Bruce Wayne is kidnapped, Superman wears the Batman suit and appears bigger. I think Commisioner Gordan (or a cop) notices he's bigger for some reason.
  12. Wow, that's a bummer. I have a feeling this is going to be like Kevin Smith's rematch between Daredevil and Bullseye. It was promised but it took forever to see it (and it's not even complete) so Bendis took over whether it was Smith's plan or not.
  13. Just curious what's up with Two-Face? I know in Hush, he had facial reconstruction and is supposably a good guy now but I never heard anything about him afterwards. Has Harvey Dent appeared in any issues after Hush?
  14. While playing with Legolas in Rohan armor and daydreaming of owning Marvel Legends Hawkeye and I came across something I've never noticed before. His right hand has a space between his fingers that allow him to hold the string of his bow. I can't believe I've overlooked this. Though I can pose him with string between fingers, it doesn't look as cool as I'd thought since he can't pull back very far with out it slipping out of his fingers. Nonetheless, I'm amazed by how detailed this figure is and he just keeps getting cooler.
  15. I'm just curious if anyone else here buys those Spidey Classics and JLU mini die-cast figures. I thought they were cool so I picked up my favorite characters... These guys measure under 3 inches. Spidey and Daredevil only have 4 points of articulation (neck, arms, waist). Oddly Batman only has 1 at the waist and it seems a bit pointless since nothing else moves. What I love the most is that Daredevil's head is really a minature version of the first Spidey Classics figure with the grim face. And I love Batman because he's basically a super duper cheap version of those JL maquettes. These are $3 a pop which is a bit expensive considering I could have bought a Marvel Legend figure instead of these 3. But too be honest, I love these little guys. They make for a cool display and I now have another set of my holy trinity. EDIT: I forgot to mention what other figures there are. For the Spidey Classics they include: Spidey and Daredevil as you see above, Beast, Iron Man, Punisher, Captain America, Hulk and probably more since those are the ones I remember off hand. The JLU figures are just the core 7: Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Superman, and of course Batman. Since it's under Ulimited, I hope there's a Green Arrow one.
  16. Just stumbled over this neat picture. Over at Neal Adams' website, he just took the time to sketch out a new suit for Batman... Pretty neat, but I really do like the current look. And I do like the WWII style army belt.
  17. I doubled checked in my Road to Perdition paperback and he says in his introduction: And a link that confirms it in a review.
  18. Yeah, I've seen the Killer Croc 2 pack at the comic shop. I don't know the price, I'm sure it was around the $17 range.
  19. I WANT THAT POSTER!!! Though Batman isn't associated with the daytime, I still think it works because we just see he's silhoutte and apparently it's dusk... time to beat the crap out of bad guys
  20. While browsing through the comic shop today, I noticed they had a few Batman paperbacks for sale at $.50. One was Batman: The Ultimate Evil by Andrew Vachss (a damn good yet disturbing book) and there was a novelization of the Burton's first Batman movie. But the book that caught my eye was The Further Adventures of Batman. It's a collection of 14 short stories and some of the authors were a bit surprising. There's Max Allan Collins who wrote Road to Perdition and created Jason Todd I believe. And the biggest surprise Isaac Asimov the writer of I, Robot! Plus the cover looked cool. And the artist who drew it? Kyle Baker! For something that's less than a dollar, I think I struck gold. Collins and Asimov's stories alone sound worth reading. And there are more books about "Further Adventures... " that I might have to track down.
  21. Dammit, I guess I'll just host it because even the link doesn't work. (So now you can see it in all its ugliness)
