DC Collectibles and Mattel

I've been giving this some thought since the disappointing showing both had at SDCC.

Friday, July 21, 2017

So far SDCC is pretty disappointing

Anyone else not getting into it this year? Also rant on my berserk button being pushed and the need to voice it somewhere.

What's Ma Gunn hiding ?

Will history repeat it's self with Jason discovering more family history?

Thursday, July 20, 2017

SDCC DC Collectibles

I'm pretty disappointed that it looks like DC Icons is being replaced with DC Essentials. Bombshells also has another wave.

BC calls DC out for not promoting RHATO

Interesting stuff.

Stop bullying creators

This has gotten out of hand.

Who is the the man in the suit?

A man showed up at the end of the first RHATO Rebirth arc. He's shown some interest in the team.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #12

Bizarro isn't doing so good and having Solomon Grundy around won't make it any easier.

DC Solicits for October 2017

For some reason I thought these would be revealed at SDCC.

Nightwing Statue tease

It seems like everyone really does know and show Nightwing by his rear.

My second thought was to wonder why he's maskless.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Dark Days Casting doesn't sound great

No big spoilers to reveal from what I've seen. I just found Duke 's codename to be disappointing. Also you know Batman screwed up when Hal Jordan has to call him out on being reckless and stupid.

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Rest in Peace Joan Lee

I remember her when she played Madam Webb in the animated Spider-Man series. She was married to Stan Lee ever since 1947 and inspired him to write what he wanted before he decided to quit comics. This advise let him create the Fantasic Four and a lot of other successful comics. It's been said that Stan based Mary Jane Watson on her.

RHATO "Who is Artemis?" Overall Review

This was an arc that was mainly put together in order to build up Artemis since we surprisingly have very little information on her despite the character appearing in the 90s. It also sets up future plot points for the other two leads and has a link with Jason's past.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Short Review: Odyssey of the Amazons #5

DC Solicits for September 2017

There seems to be a lot of big SPOILERS in this one for future storylines.

Tumblr can be a horrible place

You might find some cool sites but there's so much pointless crap. People getting upset over pairings that aren't canon, being furious that their headcanon isn't being treated like canon. Getting facts wrong and blaming people for stuff that isn't even the accused fault. Making blanket statements and stating something sucks without properly explaining why. It's aggravating and I barely go there except to visit the sites that are good. Even then you hear about the frustrating stuff.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #11 Vol. 2

I pre-ordered this but I saw it at a book store too. Which really surprised me since I rarely find it there. I couldn't wait to read it and I figured why not support the series a little more. I pre-ordered futures issues so I might not get anymore at the store. Partly because they one seem to get one issue of this series at a time. On to the review.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Thursday, June 15, 2017

The Sexuality of Artemis of Bana-Mighdall

I thought it was a good topic to discuss and was waiting until the end of her arc to post this. Then I heard people are fuming over the idea of her liking a man. Great timing huh? This deals with past canon and current.

SPOILERS AHEAD FOR NEW CANON

I might get the Injustice Comics

But I'm waiting to see how the new Batman and sister of Damian plot pans out first. Anyway Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) showed up. I kind of knew where this was heading by the solicits but this still had great interactions with the guys.

On another note: If Booster shows up in the next game I hope his super involves throwing his enemy into the timeline and have them get attacked in whatever eras the go through. That would be a lot of fun.

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Finally saw Lego Batman

It wasn't exactly what I expected.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Reading spoilers for Dark Days The Forge

And maybe it makes more sense in the comic it's self but just reading about it confused me. Some general thoughts based on what I heard. Any clarification is welcomed.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

My comics just got ruined

My glass fell and spilled all over my comics. Artemis Requiem is drying but I don't think it's going to be salvageable. I'm still going through the damage but my Rebirth RHATO VOL. 2 trade has a few pages struck together while Year One Wonder Woman trade looks worse off. This really sucks.

Rebirth Booster Gold?

Could Jurgens be teasing Booster's return? I hope so.

Monday, June 12, 2017

That time Selina dreamed of marrying Batman

There were probably other times but I remembered this image.


You probably can't see it clearly but Tim is wearing a bow tie.  If Selina and Bruce got married they might not have the uniforms (I hope not) but I'd want some allusions to their IDs. Even if it's just something like bat cuff links and a cat wedding cake. Something. 

Mezco One:12 Wonder Woman Movie Figure

The second female character to be made in the Mezco One:12 line. Unlike the other figures she doesn't seem to have any cloth clothing but rather plastic. I feel like the price should go down because of that. But this figure does look awesome.


Jason Todd isn't legally dead?

I gotta admit I've had a lot of questions about this for awhile. I wondered how he existed even though he's legally dead. Why no one outside the superhero community questioned it. Well this was kinda brought up...it just makes me a bit confused. What I like, what I don't like and what I want to see explained.

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Rest in Peace Adam West

He played a memorable Batman and brought some lightness to the role. He will be missed.

On my RHATO Theory

When I first re-read Red Hood and the Outlaws volume 2 something came to mind within the first two issues. It made me see some clues that supported this idea that was already forming. I might have gotten a little excited over what this could mean. This is a little bit of my thought process for how I came to my conclusion with the clues I found. I think the story was changed near the end since we never get satisfying answers to some parts.

World Building in RHATO Rebirth

According to this interview:

Nrama: This week is the publication of the Rebirth issue, which proceeds August's new Red Hood and the Outlaws#1. How does the Rebirth issue kind of set things up?

LobdellRebirth is a strong start to a new series... and as you read if you'll start to notice just how much is secretly crammed into Rebirth in terms of building the world. There is almost not a panel that doesn't get used somewhere down the line. (Lots of Easter eggs are going to be bringing readers back to the Rebirth issue again and again over the next few months!)


This isn't a recent interview but it's still worth mentioning. 

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Just random things

General thoughts of comic related stuff.

Selina's answer

My feelings on the question she was asked and her potential answer.

Responding to: "And Now What?"

Found here.

I've only read one issue of Deathstroke and I didn't like Lazarus Contract. That said I don't think that it's right that Christopher Priest got so much hate over it. I don't agree whenever any writer get treated horribly. Should writers be criticized? Of course but for their writing not as people.

Said criticism should be constructive. I understand the need to vent, many of my reviews are done as I'm reading them to capture my gut feelings in the moment. But I also understand that there's more at work than simply one writer especially in a crossover.

SPOILERS and LONG RESPONSE AHEAD

Monday, June 5, 2017

Teen Titans Annual #1

The previous part of Lazarus Contact was bad enough for Flash and Damian fans. Can it get worse? Yep. Can it make sense? That ship already sailed so not really.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Sunday, June 4, 2017

Deathstroke #19

Where we find out what the deal was. Yeah it doesn't make the reasoning for character's actions make any more sense. Quite the opposite.

Damian also continues to prove he's the only Robin that is horrible at leading.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

So Damian had an epic screw up

Will he ever be called out on it? I doubt it since he's gotten away with this behavior for some time. I heard about Lazarus Contract and I'm tempted to get it just to see how bad it is. I did see a little though.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Monday, May 29, 2017

Injustice Red Hood Trailer

Thought on this trailer. Based on reactions online so far it's a wonder that DC doesn't promote him more.

What to do with Kon, Tim, Cassie and Bart ?


With new characters and origin changes it makes it a little hard to include some of the older characters. Some go missing for awhile or struggle with finding some direction.

Saturday, May 27, 2017

Joker set him up?

As usual I can't help but exam text barely mentioned in a comic. It's my curse.

Questions we need answered

If Booster Gold does appear in Rebirth there are some questions that need to be answered.

JLI did happen

And I mean the classic era as it's referred to as "the old Justice League International." Mentions of JLI found here and how Booster hasn't show up in Rebirth. The Flintstones crossover doesn't really count.

I'll be pissed if he's the father

This has to do with Injustice and a theory someone has. Just no. Plus it makes no sense.

Why couldn't they at least retcon Damian's death again? At least Tim here has been kidnapped and assumed dead.

I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. No Roy but a great build up and possible retcon for something I hated from the Tynion RHATO run.

Not having a LCS close to home is a pain but I look forward to my new comics. I ordered online but Free Comic Book Day kept these a bit delayed. I'm also getting some new stuff in a week or so.

Jack Kirby inspired comics

To celebrate the 100th birthday of a comic legend DC is releasing some comics based on his creations. What I get will be based on who the creative teams are though I'm already intrigued. We'll learn who is working on these in the solicits.

Monday, May 15, 2017

Mezco One: 12 Figures

Expensive figures but pretty awesome looking. I knew about them for awhile but beyond a couple I never really looked into them before. I mentioned the Arsenal one here.

Writers' Block: Wonder Woman Origin Pérez vs. Rucka

I got the trade for Rucka's origin for Rebirth Wonder Woman thinking I'd continue to enjoy the story. I didn't and found my self comparing it to the Pérez version. This is a comparison of similar story beats in their stories.

Sunday, May 14, 2017

Should I be worried about Injustice 2?

I always semi-follow any story line that has my favorites in it. But apparently someone online already saw spoilers of one ending (didn't say which) and said they feel sick. That's not a good sign.

Happy Mother's Day!

The best moms I've read in comics this year have been Lois Lane and (in back issues) Queen Hippolyta.

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Short Review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #20

Has no one besides Rip ever dealt with time travel in this series ? Because no one else seems to know the rules. Or they know but don't care. I'm not sure.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Time Travel and Multiverse Crap is going on

And it seriously doesn't involve the Time Masters? WTF?! Forget Tim Drake, much as I love him Tim shouldn't be one of the prime threats. The freaking Time Masters should be.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Happy Futures?

I love time travel/possible future stories but I think we need more variety. I'm not asking for things to be perfect but having the heroes lead happy lives would be a nice change. Technically we got that for Booster although we never really see the whole picture. The Convergence change kind of ruined that too, at least what we see of it.

Monday, May 8, 2017

Fatherhood vs Crime fighter ? Why Not Both?

This seems to be a hot topic now with many asking if Batman can be one or the other. I haven't really seen anyone ask if he can be both. Why can't he? We see other heroes do better than him.

SPOILERS AHEAD for the Button plot

Disregarding Fan Favorites: How Marvel ended Spider-Girl

Once Marvel attempted to have Peter Parker and his wife Mary Jane have a child. Then the rug was pulled out from the creators having the baby disappear and never be mentioned again. At least until a What if? issue came with the child as a teen that they dubbed Spider-Girl.

The character suffered a number of cancellations but was repeatedly saved over the years thanks to loyal fans. To this day May "Mayday" Parker a.k.a. Spider-Girl has the longest solo run of any female character at Marvel. Yet Marvel kept forcing changes onto the character to take away her spotlight.

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Free Comic Book Day was kinda disappointing

Most were gone by the time I got there and the things I was I was going to buy weren't there. Didn't the new Wonder Woman trade come out this week? It was too crowded to really ask anyway but I asked someone at a book store who wasn't sure. I also found out Roy is still in Green Arrow but didn't see the current issue.

On the bright side I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Which was pretty good although I know I missed a lot of Easter Eggs going on in the background.

EDIT: I know I can get the free comics online it's just more fun to get them in the store.

Cheaper 1/6 Superhero Figures

I've never bought any of the superhero dolls. Their too expensive, don't always look so good and they never make the ones I'd really want to collect. I did find less expensive ones that seem to have some quality to them though.

The Bana-Mighdall of William Messner-Loebs

Where the Bana-Mighdall Amazons get more sympathetic and Artemis is first introduced.

The Trauma of Resurrection

Every once in awhile I read something that makes me analysis a comic. This is a continuation of the bits I previously talked about that we got of Jason mentioning his death.

What Kids Should Return?

I talked some about this before but I think it's worth debating whether certain characters should come back. Would they fit in current canon? Do they have a place to exist?

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Short Review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #19

I've read it and my thoughts remain the same as they were in the preview. There's more to talk about of course.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Monday, April 10, 2017

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.

Friday, March 31, 2017

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 the 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.

Why the Robin case doesn't make sense

I get that it's iconic but having it around now makes Bruce a bigger moron than usual.

RWBY: Qrow and JNPR

I've mentioned some of this before but I felt the need to expand on it. A look into how Qrow behaves and how he views the team.

Not buying that it will happen

In regards to a Nightwing SPOILER I heard.

RWBY: Chess Pieces referred to as Relics

I've been wondering about the importance of the chess pieces for awhile so this is just me pondering if there's a meaning.

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.

Really not much to talk about.

Why the Ranking list doesn't make sense

I was going to drop this but someone brought this up and I feel the need the go through the list.

King thinks Damian is...

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.

Another WTF Batman moment I stumbled upon

I really don't get what's going on in bat books.

Batman didn't decide that Jason did

I saw this and while it's nice to see different bat books tied together I question how much is researched. Well at least one series linked in this.

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.

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.

RWBY Why did no one help with Cardin?

This is about something that happened in VOL. 1 but it relates to what happens in Vol. 4 episode 10. Also a talk about the JNR dynamic.

DC Solicits for April 2017

Nothing new this month just a few things that I was already interested in and a couple details I thought were were worth mentioning.

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.

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.

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.

RWBY World of Remnant: The Great War

This was awesome and I wish we could have gotten more. Qrow's voice does sound off though.

Some are calling it a copycat? Really?

I'm not thrilled with how Marvel is handling the Scarlet Spider stuff but apparently some are saying the new design is taking the hood idea from Gwen. Did everyone forget Scarlet Spider/Ben Reilly was the first spider person to have one since he wore a freaking hoodie?

This week is a RWBY WOR

Most Fans: Their giving us another World of Remnant video now?! We left on a cliffhanger! Technically three or four cliffhangers!

Me: It's on the Great War?! Finally!

RWBY Thoughts on Volume 4 episode 8

I haven't read any of the hate this episode got (I've seen responds to them though) but I don't need to. Unfortunately I already had an idea how some viewers were going to act. So I need to do a little ranting on that and then talk about how I felt about the episode.
