ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.

(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)

I worked at Regal when Quantum of Solace came out. That was a wonderful time to be in the box office.

i try not to judge people for petty reasons i really do but why would you pay ten dollars of your hard earned money to watch a movie you literally don’t even know the name of

UGH OK so yeah all of these have happened a billion and a half fucking times to me, but Guardians has had a damn fair share of weird names spoken

Galaxy of the Guardians

Guardians/Protectors/Defenders/Avengers/etc of the Earth/Universe/Space/etc

But my favorite was when someone said “Defenders” and I was just like “Haha nice” because I thought they were a comic geek like me asking for a different superhero teams name. And the guy looked at me like “What?” and I was like “Reference to the wrong superhero team, haha!” and he obviously didn’t mean it like that at all and I felt dumb.

Also the number of times I got “Captain Planet” instead of Captain America was astounding. 

So Charles Soule signed an exclusive with Marvel. It was bound to go one way or the other eventually. It makes me sad, though, because his work on Swamp Thing is some of my favorite since Moore’s run and I fear DC’s just going to up and cancel the book rather than seek a new writer since most of the Dark line has gone to the wayside already.

Meghan has a friend who is taking a course in comics and she wants to come to me to talk about stuff… neat

Hey Riley whats your favourite era comic books. I really enjoy reading silver age but I really hate whats been coming out lately. Ultimate universe from marvel, crap like Kick ass and new 52 from Dc. Its all about sex, gore, rape, decapitation and they try to be too realistic. I just think that silver age had more heart and soul in their writing, this is coming from a 23 year old who only started reading comics since last year.


I like all kinds of stuff from all over the place. I love comics from Golden, Silver, Bronze, “Adamantium”, Dark, and modern ages. I’ve written a thesis paper about comics since they began and the dawn of the superhero in the Atomic Age all the way through the “Event Age” up to now. I just love comics in general. Even when they’re bad I still love them because I live for comics. 

Now, there is a lot of shit out there. Pardon the language, I usually try to stay professional on here, but it’s frankly true. The New 52 started out as a pretty interesting, and often successful, experiment that allowed a lot of creators to play with original ideas, and it lead to the returns of a lot of interesting and awesome characters like Animal Man and Swamp Thing. However, then DC started interfering too much editorially, not allowing but a handful of creators to really spread their wings and do original things, and worrying too much about the number of books on the shelves rather than the quality of the books themselves. It got worse and worse until semi-recently when they seem to have started to allow more creators to have more freedom. They still lend too much focus to Batman, but eh, it’s been that way since the early 90’s. There’s more more dreck than quality coming from DC right now, but the few books that ARE good are DAMN good. 

If you prefer the Silver Age, though, then I have to say that Marvel is offering up a lot of stuff that has kind of emulated that era of comics. Focus more on character rather than the big, eventful stories that have kind of plagued the past two decades of comics, which leads to comics generally feeling more fun. Also lots of artists are working for Marvel who have that stylized Silver-Age-y look to their work. It’s a lot of fun. 

On the Ultimate Universe- You’re likely talking about Mark Millar’s The Ultimates. Check out Ultimate Spider-Man. Great representation of a young teen getting powers and being stuck with all the responsibility. Bendis is doing wonders still on the series with Miles Morales. It’s awesome. Also you mentioned Kick-Ass. Also by Millar. If you don’t like gore, violence, rape, all that stuff, then don’t read Millar stuff. He often goes for shock value rather than great character or deep story. It works every once in a while, but more often than not it’s just transparent and lackluster. 

If you only started to read comics about a year ago then my biggest word of advice is to never discredit anything. You’ll find yourself a year from now being more open to stuff you didn’t think you’d touch. Read everything and anything and then decide what you think. Judge based on creators and not on publisher or what era they’re from. Don’t be dissuaded from everything published right now because you aren’t digging a few things. I can tell you 100% for fact that not even near everything being published right now is about murder, rape, and realism because 1) you’d see a lot more people complaining about the state of the comics industry, and 2) you’d see sales be a lot more dismal than they are. Also, because I read every book published my Marvel and most of what DC’s doing at the moment so I can speak from firsthand experience. 

The most important thing to remember is to have fun, because that’s what comics are all about.

My intense comic love was glowing and showing last night before bed… oops.

I often wonder what it would be like if a western creative team adapted a shonen manga.

Did WB even TRY to approach Adrian Grenier to play Aquaman?

In 1991 Jim Starlin wrote Infinity Gauntlet. He followed that in 1992 with Infinity War and in 1993 with Infinity Crusade. 

Nine years later, in 2002, he wrote Infinity Abyss. He followed that with Marvel: The End in 2003 and then in 2004 he wrote “Thanos: Epiphany”. 

Ten years later, in 2014, he published Thanos: Infinity Revelation. If this isn’t the beginning of a new annually published Thanos trilogy then slap me silly. 





"Satoru Iwata also mentioned that several other titles are in development exclusively for the New Nintendo 3DS. These will not be playable on the old 3DS models."


This was essentially everyone’s reaction when I went into work (gamestop) and told them about it.



When u accidentally type pkay instead of okay


And when you correct it to “okay”


okay fiya









Oh look it’s Tony’s turn to be remendered.

Remendered: (verb) To be written badly, out of character, and so unsympathetically as to cause a massive drop in sales and loss of popularity. Fate of tent pole characters of Marvel Comics, so long as the dumbasses in charge keep letting the man TOUCH THINGS.

So Rick Remender is the new Mark Millar then?

Not ashamed to admit I’ve enjoyed everything Remender has written and I’m damn excited about Axis.
