Death of the five year timeline

Thoughts on this.

New Reading List

I've been thinking about whether or not I should add more titles. I'm not including any back issues I might get.

This is just really bad PR

I have a hard time believing Marvel would do this. Then again I don't get why Marvel doesn't seem to get why people are upset with the story line.

Short Review: Hal Jordan and that Green Lantern Corps #18

Since one of my favorite characters has turned up I decided to get this arc.

Getting a bad mini series

I enjoyed Millennium and since I've been read back issues of Wonder Woman I've been thinking of getting Amazons Attack. It sounds like it isn't just bad but also entertaining.

I want Jason to meet Amazons

As in going to either Bana-Mighdall (which is more likely in the current arc) or Themyscrira. Why? Because I need to see his reaction after these scenes.

The Shim'tar

What the Shim'tar is has changed over the years.

Retconning Tomasi

I started looking around for reactions to RHATO #9 VOL. 2 and I was surprised someone had a problem with a certain retcon.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Red Hood and the Outlaws #9 Vol. 2

I'm not loving the extra wait between issues but it makes it cheaper to also get digital copies. All you have to do is pull off the sticker on the last page to get the code. Their only good for a limited time and I've heard eBay was cracking down on people selling codes too. While I now have both copies I read this digitally because it helps keep certain things from being spoiled panels before I read it.

That said a couple things were spoiled for me online but I think they were minor things.

The Mom Situation

Death in the Family isn't a perfect story and even years later there's some confusion. One of the first arguments I heard from the DC comic fandom was if we actually got an answer to the question of who the real mother was.

Happy Easter !


I don't think there's many Easter related Bat stories but we'll always have Lil' Gotham.

How are comics edited?

With the Syaf controversy and other such incidences I wonder how comics are being edited. I once heard that the editors don't proof read the books for grammar, spelling mistakes and art problems so much as make sure certain things are or aren't in the books. I don't think it's continuity because, well, books don't carry the same portrayals or nods to some solo titles. Is it just allusion to bigger titles? I'm not trying to belittle the work of editors I'm just not sure what's true or not. I can understand some things slipping under the radar but other bits like Colossus' shirt kind of demand some questions.

Somebody is in Hal Jordon's book?

As seen in this article. Thoughts below. Yes, I'm excited.

I have to wait a week for my comics

I have to figure out an easier way to get my books on time since the digital change up is currently messing up my reading process.

In the meantime I'm going to be working on some projects. If results are good I'll post it but for now I'm in research mode.

I really want Jason Todd Robin series

He seriously got screwed on his Robin time and has the least amount of stories. A mini series could build up future storylines and we'd actually get Robin stories with him having his own costume. Sadly there's only a few writers I'd actually trust to write it. More stories of one of my favorites, that's well written, is always welcomed. It would also clear up misunderstandings of his Robin days. Namely he didn't act the way the bat family suddenly claimed after his death.

Sunday, April 9, 2017

Qurac and it's current importance

A fictional country in the DC universe that used to be wedged between Oman, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. I say "used to be" as it might be a little unclear where it's located in current canon.

What to read next

I realized that I don't have many current titles on my list this year and I'm wondering if I should check out any other titles. I'm not getting anything from Marvel but if anyone has ideas of what other series I can read let me know.

I'm also going through some back issues of Wonder Woman and I adore it. I'm not sure how much I'll read but I'm already considering what older series I should try next. I'm thinking of TT, possibly Superman or Batman. I'm not sold on anything yet so any suggestions would be welcomed.

Super Family Test

I expected this to be harder but I got a 100%. Nothing new is in it and I think that even if you don't know some answers you can figure it out based on the other answers. If you know comics in general anyway. I love superhero quizzes.

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Bad Character Work

Have you ever had a few favorite characters that some writers never get right? That they just wrote stereotypically and then sees other readers praise the bad interpretations? Mostly because the writers are currently hot or they have no idea how the characters usually act? I've seen this happen with Booster and all the bat kids. It's lazy and annoying.

Monday, April 3, 2017

Marvel Sales Slump

I haven't commented on this mostly because I thought it was an April Fool's joke. Nope, I just heard about it a day later. What Marvel thinks is responsible for their lower sales.

Getting out of X-Men

My interest in Marvel superhero comics is nearly dead. Their not publishing books starring my favorite characters and I'm not a fan of what they've done. Still I've held onto a lot of comics but I'm finally taking the first step in getting rid of some. X-Men to be exact which I doubt I'll ever be interested in again. Sad but true. So I'll be giving my sister and brother-in-law some of my trades. If they like them I'll send more.

Nightwing and Batgirl movies

I'm trying not to get excited about Nightwing until we get more information. I'm not sure how I feel about Batgirl at this stage. This movie will probably be about Babs and lately I haven't been loving how she's been written. So it's basically all a wait and see for me.

Thursday, March 30, 2017

The wait for more comics

I pre-ordered Booster Gold/Flintstones which has already been released. I heard it was good but I won't get it for a couple of weeks. I really miss Booster.

This is also the month I cancelled my online subscription to RHATO since the physical copy will have the code for a digital comic. I'll have to wait until that comes in the mail too.

Origins of the Splitting of tbe Amazons

I'm only going to talk about a couple origins. Which ones? The ones related to the Bana Mighdall Amazons and how they connect to Themyscira. Simply because I can't wait to see more of Artemis and her people during the RHATO arc. I'll be getting more into the Bana Mighdall lore in another entry.

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

So many comics to read

I have been reading through my trades I previously didn't have time to read. Right now I'm going through the four 75th anniversary Wonder Woman trades. Then I remembered I hadn't read Super Sons yet and had to sort through my comic pile to find it. I also have some comics coming in the mail soon. All in all this isn't a bad problem to have.

Stuff like this makes me mad

Granted I didn't have much faith in King but damn.

Minor SPOILER AHEAD

Jason Todd's living Parent ?

Sure DITF had Shelia Haywood and many fans still debate if she was actually his real mom. But there seemed to be another development I haven't seen anyone really talking about.

Saturday, March 11, 2017

DC Icons Blue Beetle and Booster Gold cancelled?

The figures I talked about here might be cancelled. Nightwing has been delayed and Ertigan has been cancelled/put on hold due of lack of retail interest. I pre-ordered Blue and Gold but it's currently unavailable on the site. Did retailers really have no interest in them?

The Price Hike Adjustment

If some titles are going up a dollar and including digital codes do those codes effect digital sales or count as sales? I'm going to be cancelling my digital subscription to use the codes which also means I won't be reading RHATO for at least a week after the new issues are released from now on.

Kawaii Bat Family Series 2 figures


I'm pleasantly surprised to see all of the current Robins are included in this. I usually don't get these, I only bought some RWBY minis (assuming these are the same size.) I think I wouldn't mind getting most of these with the exception of the Gordons. I'm not fond of this version of Babs and Jim isn't as high on my favorite list as the others. I love that unmasked Jason is the chase figure and he looks like he's posing for a photo shoot.

A better fighter than Jason and Tim despite them previously taking him down with little effort. That explains Robin War but it still doesn't make sense. I don't buy his list in general but having Damian so near the top made it harder to take seriously.

I never know which bat family appearance to get

Is getting Batman #16 worth it? Because I'm extra cautious about which appearances to get since I dislike how these characters are written in recent years. At least when their together. I've heard good things about this one though.

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Who owns Batman's copyright in the DCU?

I'd think it be Bruce Wayne since he revealed he financed Batman. But maybe not because someone else can make a fast food restaurant? If Batman can't have an owner to his rights does that mean there's a lot of different products including embarrassing ones? See this is why Bruce needs Booster Gold, say what you want about selling his image but at least Booster had the power to shut down people trying to steal it.

Maybe going back to my LCS will work out

I haven't gone there for awhile since it's out of the way although I'm considering it because of the $3.99 price change will force me to do things differently with my digital purchases. But today I got my comics in the mail. Usually their placed at my door but today they were crammed into my mail box. The packaging was bent to make it fit while making it hard to get anything else out. Luckily nothing was ruined inside but it reminded me of story where an artist had their art damaged because of this.

I'm not mad but I'll admit it was annoying when I saw everything jammed together. I'll be seeing if I can have them print a "do not bend" label or something.

Two accidents in a month?

Awhile back there was a car crash nearby and from what I heard no one is really sure why it happened. The car was going too fast and at least one person died. There was just an accident on the on the same street but a bit further down. I'm not sure of all the details but it involved a car crushing a man. I just feel so bad and want to do something but at this point there's not much I can do. Maybe I can once more information comes out. It feel very surreal.

Saturday, January 21, 2017

DC raising prices

I waited to see if this was just an option for the digital coded issues while regular non-coded issues remained the same. From what little I've seen of the upcoming comics this seems to be just $3.99 issues with no $2.99 issues being offered. Right?

At first this didn't seem to be a problem for me because I don't buy many series in general. But yeah it will affect me. I'm just not sure what to do about it yet.

I get RHATO digitally and the physical copy later. But if the physical copy has the code I have to cancel my subscription and find a way to get the issue in my hand faster than I normally do.

This is going to be a pain.

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

I really have to kill my curiosity

Because wondering how other fans feel about something or what theories they have only leads to headaches. A.K.A. message boards and the dreaded T. I watch, read, get things I enjoy and it's sad to see people invested in hating something. I drop things that I don't like and enjoy talking about what I love.

A lot of the things I read were just so toxic.
