This is starting to feel like watching a 1000 car pile up.

At this point, I'm pretty sure "relaunch" is the only thing in Marvel's playbook anymore.

So, I read through Panther by Brecht Evens. Masterfully drawn and written comic. But it is also one of the most (emotionally, and psychologically) difficult books I've read. This thing is going to haunt me for a long time. If I had known what I was getting into, I may not even have read it. -_-

Looks interesting. I may check it out.

Its currently in my IST basked...but I don't know honestly. Did you get yours yet?

I want to get all the rebirth deluxes but thats gonna mean getting some potentially shit ones (like this) or actually shit ones (Justice League)

Pls don't Messi. You don't need to feel regret every time you look at your bookcase.

Are there any B&N deals on comics right now? Just saw there is one like 5 minutes away from the place I'm staying at in LA with my family.

B &N stores and the website are different entities so they won't price match. All their best deals are online (when you get to use coupons and offers on already discounted books). Usually nothing much going on in store.

Unfortunately not. It's holed up at IST for some reason. They must have had to order more or something. :(

I think I will probably get all of them except Justice League. Maybe I'll get that if I ever find it for like $5 just for collector's sake, but I have no plans for it. As for Action Comics, I mean, yeah, it's definitely got one of the more mixed receptions for Rebirth comics, but I've seen plenty of people who really like it too. I'm just going into it knowing that it's going to be mostly action.

Barnes & Noble charges more in store so I wouldn't recommend buying from them offline.
Awwwwwwwwwwww...

IST is delayed on action? That might sway it. I can't risk it being delayed too heavily from delivery.

They still have it listed as available, so it shouldn't be more than a three day wait for Diamond to deliver more.

Someone who got it posted what the spine looks like.


So happy that it's just using normal Rebirth branding. A line of those together on the shelf is going to look almost as good as my Marvel Now OHCs.

Also, don't be distracted by the look and art style and colours. I would NOT recommend it to anyone on the younger side.

I am very intrigued.

I don't think I can handle really heavy material right now, but i will take note.

Until they change the spine 4 volumes in. Never forgive or forget they did this.

Adorable. VanWinkle thinks DC won't change the spine designs halfway through the series or stop putting out hardcovers altogether.

I'll be happy if they keep the design for a year. They kept the New 52 design for like 4 years and DCYou for a year or so, and that was a half-hearted rebranding. We'll see.

Is Rai History of the Valiant U worth buying?

Not really. it tries to summarize and introduce most of the main characters of the Valiant Universe and give you the main story beats that have happened so far, but doesn't do a good job of it. It's too cursory, I would imagine would be very confusing for someone who hasn't read at least some of the comics already, and the art is nothing special. You'd be better off just reading a quick Wikipedia article.

Weren't many people hoping Legacy was a re-launch with new creative teams?

Sites like Bleedingcool were always calling it a "relaunch that isn't a relaunch" and Marvel just called it an initiative, but there are a lot of people unhappy with Marvel's line so people wanted big changes to creative teams and books like with Rebirth.

Since getting back into digital comics after a year I've now blown through:

Caught up on Dealy Class
Caught up on Black Science
Caught up on Invinicble
Caught up on Low
Caught up on Manifest Destiny
Caught up on MTMTE/Lost Light
first two trades of Paper Girls
Finally finished Hickman FF
World War Hulk
Second Vision trade
First three trades of Lemire Old Man Logan
1st trade of Unworthy Thor
1st 3 trades of Ms Marvel
Last Darth Vader trade
Rucka Wonder Woman volume 1

Also decided to reread Scalped and Zero Year for whatever reason. Still have 1st two trades of Coates Black Panther on deck. This has been in the last couple of months. I may burn myself out.....

I never understood the concept of the book. Batman wanted a more human team and those are the people he chose? Makes no sense.
He wanted a team that was about the people, and the easiest way to do that would be to pick a combination of flawed beings (Lobo, Killer Frost, Ryan Choi) and heroes that the people love and relate to (Black Canary, The Ray, Vixen).
I also fell in love with Kate through Rucka's run. I love, like, everything about her. Her design, her skill set, her back story... she's just so badass. But after reading the two-part tec lead in and the first few issues of her solo, I've dropped it. It's just so not what I want from a Batwoman book. And I haven't enjoyed these writers previously, so I don't have a lot of faith.
Detective is what really introduced me to Kate and got me to like her. I got super invested in her character, and I liked the lead in as well. Hell, she was dope in Night of the Monster Men (a fucking bad crossover). Then her solo started up and I liked the Rebirth issue, but after that it's been whatever.
Green Arrow has the best artist rotation
Nightwing's is pretty close.

Issue 11 of Mia Goodwins' Tomboy finally arrived, and it didn't disappoint. Criminally underrated, and a breath of fresh air since Marvel and DC haven't been interesting to me.

Hopefully she gets better and can do more work, its going to be a long wait for the final issue!

Anyone ever pick up the Invincible Compendiums? Looking to collect the whole series cheaply. Just over £30 for over 40 issues each seems insanely cheap to me. I'm concerned about the printings, paper, etc.

Cute and nice ending to Rucka's run, but it also just feels kind of empty. It just makes me realize we got so little from this run other than just invalidating other runs. We end up ending right where I want more from Rucka. Also thought Sharpe's art was kind of down this issue and usually I love his art.

The more I think about it, the more disturbed I get. Still creeped out. Someone online categorized it as 'Psychological Horror' and that is very apt.

Got a long weekend this starting tomorrow so I'm gonna start My Favorite Thing is Monsters. Really excited after your praise. It looks great.

Awesome!


So many things i can complain about

Damn, they seem to be upping the budget for these vapenation videos quite a bit.
