I suppose I could be tempted out of retirement. (PS I am still reading all the books, every week, just not writing about them.)

Group project?

If that's code word for 'intervention for Aldo' then I'm down.

share your scans and i'll read any damn thing

I eagerly await your reaction to the flood of taint pictures you've inadvertently requested

I like Batgundaman but the others are pretty much shit.

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 14 March 2015 19:42 (five years ago) link

The Bat Bunny.

Comics is a much funnier place when DC editorial is trying to do something.

Frederik B, Saturday, 14 March 2015 19:48 (five years ago) link

I like the Batman a lot! Good design. Reminds me of Marvin the red rabbit in Dungeon. Snyder's been a bit shit since the first year, though, so not expecting much.

The rest are a bit ridiculous but not really ridiculous enough.

Chuck_Tatum, Sunday, 15 March 2015 00:24 (five years ago) link

they all suck imo

I like how the Wonder Woman outfit at least addresses the ages old "why would a warrior wear something like that?" question of her previous costumes, too bad it looks so "90s shit" otherwise.

The new Bat-bunny costume has gotta be a shoutout to the rabbit-eared cyborg guy in Masamune Shirow's Appleseed, right?

Tuomas, Sunday, 15 March 2015 11:30 (five years ago) link

that doesn't address the major shit element that Albuquerque was repeatedly asked by DC to make the image creepier and more inappropriate, including elements like the blood lipstick and the gun pointing towards Batgirl's crotch

jesus, they really have no idea what is good in their stable or how to encourage it

mh, Friday, 20 March 2015 01:11 (five years ago) link

Wow. The crotch thing seems like they're plain baiting the audience.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Friday, 20 March 2015 01:13 (five years ago) link

thank god they're bringing back Steel; brilliant market recognition

this looks terrible. kinda surprised (but grateful) they're not trying to fold watchmen into the dcu as part of this

bizarro gazzara, Thursday, 26 March 2015 15:23 (five years ago) link

U.S. Price: $3.99
On Sale 4/15

STARRING HEROES FROM ZERO HOUR! Aquaman has lost his home, his powers, and his hand – but now he faces his most difficult challenge: a battle to the finish with Deathblow!

thrilled that they're streamlining the dcu by resurrecting 20-year-old efforts to streamline the dcu which were terrible even at the time

bizarro gazzara, Thursday, 26 March 2015 15:25 (five years ago) link

almost 20 years ago, Deathblow was chilling with Wolverine!

the times, how they change

Well they have, kind of. Earth 4 is the earth of Watchmen, or rather the earth of Watchmen had it used the Charlton heroes after all.

As a store owner whose only DC sales for two months will be Convergence - fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Thursday, 26 March 2015 20:20 (five years ago) link

Followed shortly by Marvel rebooting with an assload of #1s with their version of the New 52.

I need to find a connection for good, mellow weed.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Thursday, 26 March 2015 20:21 (five years ago) link

okay irl lolz

Multiversity: Ultra Comics was really cool, but at this point I have no idea how it's all supposed to fit together.

Frederik B, Thursday, 26 March 2015 20:40 (five years ago) link

I was about to say, as someone whose only DC book has been Multiversity, DC seems to be in a pretty neat state at the moment!

Well... yes?

Andrew Farrell, Friday, 27 March 2015 09:01 (five years ago) link

Caught up with some DC stuff -- the final issues of the three weekly minis, plus Convergence 0.

Surprise! They were not good. Also, unless I read wrong, they've set up a definitive future in which, er, all the heroes are killed and turned into zombie robots - is that right? That seems... bleak.

Chuck_Tatum, Saturday, 4 April 2015 01:41 (five years ago) link

it's convergence. Everything will change and be rewritten and chucked out the window for the nunu-52.

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 4 April 2015 01:44 (five years ago) link

one month passes...

I don't know if we need a new thread for post 52 clusterfucks, but DC is making a new ad campaign: DC YOU! Promising to ask readers such smart questions as: 'Are YOU ready to laugh?, Are YOU ready to hashtag this?, and Are YOU ready for the new awesome?' I know I'm not! Apparently they are promoting diversity. So of course there's an ad with famed gay superhero Midnighter, which just shows a man in a mask with blood on his face and the tagline: He can predict your every move... but nobody can predict what he'll do next... are YOU ready? They really sold the diversity of that story...

Frederik B, Tuesday, 19 May 2015 21:02 (five years ago) link

New Fifty-YOU! sounds horrible.

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 19 May 2015 21:30 (five years ago) link

I'll contribute to a thread but Conetc has undone all my goodwill to lengthy reviews tbh.

the bowels are not what they seem (aldo), Wednesday, 20 May 2015 03:48 (five years ago) link

So, based on those ads, the "bunny Batman" we discussed in the other thread is... Commissioner Gordon in a robosuit?! Whoever thought that was a good idea?

Tuomas, Wednesday, 20 May 2015 06:37 (five years ago) link

kneejerk answer is 'geoff johns'

bizarro gazzara, Wednesday, 20 May 2015 08:35 (five years ago) link

I think it's an okay idea, and I like the suit design. Snyder's a decent writer when he can be bothered (which hasn't been often, lately). I wouldn't buy it, though.

Chuck_Tatum, Wednesday, 20 May 2015 09:15 (five years ago) link

The question isn't who thought of it. The question is: Are YOU ready for it?

Frederik B, Wednesday, 20 May 2015 09:37 (five years ago) link


DJP, Friday, 22 May 2015 20:41 (five years ago) link

I'd always wondered why you never see Superman and Henry Rollins in the same room.

The Freewheelin' Denny Dillon (Old Lunch), Friday, 22 May 2015 21:10 (five years ago) link

Is that the new version of Superboy Prime? IIRC he had that red "S" on black background thing going on before the reboot... Considering that the whole character is supposed to be a parody of fanboys, I guess it'd make sense for him to try to look cool and drive a motorcycle.

Tuomas, Sunday, 24 May 2015 09:41 (five years ago) link

I am not that into DC's recent work but that image gives me hope for something

ultimate american sock (mh), Sunday, 24 May 2015 10:39 (five years ago) link

Tuomas, that's the post-Convergence Superman, seen in a preview of an upcoming Superman/Batman issue. Apparently his Clark Kent ID has been revealed (by Lois Lane!) and he's depowered. And he's been watching Bruce Willis movies.
