  1. I think this is the only point in time where I can say GI JOE #1 > Spider-Man #1

  2. Watched the Kickstarter John K. "animation" Can's Without Labels.

    And now I feel like Bart Simpson after he sold his soul.

      A fitting Grand Finale for the mother of all grouchy cartoon artists.

      @SupahBerry It's the worst of him with some questionable design choices and inconsistent animation, and it feels like it stole something from me.

  3. Don't bother with the JJ Abrams Spider-Man book, it's mediocre and uninspired.

  4. They made Nightcrawler into a killer in Dark Phoenix!? Why the hell would-you know what, never-mind. The series is done and dead, no use getting upset about this.

    1. The Master

      The Master

      Maybe they only watched the first 5 minutes of X2?

  5. The latest issue of Powers of X seems to lay the groundwork for the upcoming X-caliber which references an interesting part of Apocalypse's history.

  6. That Purge TV show wasn't bad, it was rough around the edges but there's enough to enjoy.

  7. Carnage is outselling Batman, and X-men.

      To be fair it IS an event.

      so you're saying...

      carnage rules?

  8. Hey look, Angry Joe is getting political

    'Bout what I expected.

    1. Teoskaven


      He has been for a long time. When the 2016 elections happened, he posted a (now deleted) video where he cringed about a right-wing supporter yelling "KILL OBAMA!" during Trump's celebrational speech.

      @Teoskaven I see. Never held him in any high regard but I guess its time to throw him in with Jontron, Pewdiepie, and Candace Owens.

  9. Oh good, they're going to out Superman again.


    For context they just ran this back like two years ago after the Nu52 Superman got outed.

    1. Tara


      Why don't they do something original like make a comic where Superman actually dies.

      Oh, wait.

      So, no big deal.  How about one where Superman actually dies AGAIN?

      Oh, wait.

      Okay, no big deal about one where Sup

    3. Speederino


      To be honest I'm not entirely sure why Superman even has a secret identity. He's not as vulnerable as, say, Peter Parker and well


      I mean come on

      he is so OBVIOUSLY Bruce Wayne

  10. I watched the Fall of Boogie2988 video, and I'll never be able to forget the image of boogie screaming "This is what weird looks like!" as he wears a horse mask and smacks himself in the dick with Thor's hammer.

      Who is this Booger person?

      edit: oh wait that says Boogie, not Booger XD!

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Your initial post might be the most accurate assessment of that guy.

  11. Okay we ran out of budget, but kids 6 to 10 will love it! Glomtales!

  12. About to see IT part 2

  13. You have to put one gaming franchise in hiatus for the foreseeable future. What would you choose and why (Sonic is not an option, it's too easy)?

    For me I'd put Persona on ice, because IMHO it feels stagnant in structure, tone, and narration.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I'd put anyone who says Sonic in ice.

    2. Big Panda

      Pokemon, without a doubt. At least the core series. Spin-offs and side games are still welcome, but it’s obvious GF needs a serious break from releasing new RPGs on an almost yearly basis.

    3. Strickerx5


      Mario, easy. Would make Nintendo put those first-party resources into some of their other franchises.

      That or either Pokemon (because obviously it could use it) or Smash (because you really can’t go many places after Ultimate and I really want Sakurai to work on something else).

    4. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      The Legend of Zelda. 

      A soul for a soul so we get more Metroid games.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      Smash for me, after the DLC cast is out. I'd be perfectly content if we got a Ultimate re-release next generation since it's basically the complete height of the series IMO.

      I would've said Mario a few years ago, but they finally got a grip on things and took their time, giving us Odyssey, Mario Maker 2, and Luigi's Mansion 3.

    6. TCB



    7. Wraith


      This is a dumb question

    8. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      But Mario was already put On Ice!




    9. tailsBOOM!


      What @Ryannumber1gamer said.  Just give it the Street Fighter 2 treatment and and a few extra stages and characters to each rerelease

    10. Polkadi~☆





  14. >Sees Project Resistance trailer


    1. Teoskaven


      It looks harmless, certainly gives me better vibes than Operation Raccoon City or Umbrella Corps so far. No idea why people are freaking out, where they seriously expecting R3make from this?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Honestly I don't know what I was expecting, but I was hoping it would be another fun single player experience.

  15. This weekend just hard confirmed Summer was over. As I'm typing this we just got hit with hard showers.

    1. Teoskaven


      Same, though I appreciate it TBH after the heatwaves we had here.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      Over the last couple of days it just suddenly got really chilly here.

    4. Perkilator


      For me, it's still summer; not just in date, but it's so hot I somehow got sick with a cough and a stuffy nose.

  16. Robert Axelrod voice of Lord Zedd, Wizardmon, and Armadillomon has passed away.

    Rest in peace.

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Ahh crap. I loved him as Armadillomon :(


  17. Guys, I can't deal with Cristina Vee's singing.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Do you mean that in a good or bad way?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean that in a bad way. She is a great voice actress but I just can't stand her signing.

    3. PublicEnemy1


      Well, I respectfully disagree.

  18. Let's be real for a sec. If Stands were real then Ken Penders would've been the main antagonist with his stand "Take On Me"

  19. Continuing to read ultimate FF and I hit the part where Greg Land does the art. It's eye poison. So many reused poses and facial expressions, and you can't help but see porn face all over the damn page.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Can you share a few screencaps for examples?

    2. Perkilator


      And can you spoiler tag it, just in case?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @PublicEnemy1 & @Perkilator

      Some slight NSFW stuff due to suggestive expressions and poses.

      Who makes this face


      after learning their mom is alive?



      Or really any other time outside of a porno?

      Then there's him drawing a woman "dodging" incoming fire




      There are more examples but I think this gif does enough of talking for me


      I mean for real

      This complaint also extends to the background too.


      It looks like it was photo shopped in and give a pseudo-comic book esthetic but it still looks off, and in the case of the final panel unfinished. What is happening in the upper left corner of that last panel?


    4. Zaysho


      I never understand how he still gets work when stuff like his swiping is so heavily documented and something, at least from what I tend to see, that comic readers fucking hate.

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I don't know how the guy is still employed after learning he straight up swipes art from other artists sometimes from the same company.

  20. Send me your energy, I'm about to read Ultimate Fantastic Four.

  21. So is anyone here a fan of DC's Legion of Superheroes or even know about them?

    I ask because they're being pushed lately.

    1. Dejimon11


      I remember the TV show. 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 Well that's a good enough reference

  22. *sigh* Fine I'll try it. I mean if Venom can get a readable book why not Ghostrider?

  23. Speaking of Star Wars, anyone remember how racist the Phantom Menace was?

    Jar Jar is obvious, but do you remember the cruel & greedy hook-nosed alien? Or the ethnic stereotype crafty Japanese aliens with faulty weapons of war (yes that was a stereotype dating back to American propaganda cartoons)

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Maybe that's why that film is looked back on more fondly these days and called better than the Disney films.


      It because it was more daring where minorities didn't have any power.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @SupahBerry Don't know what you're talkin' about, they made Jar Jar a senator.




    3. Solister


      Well, I recently watched the movie [See complete review here] but didn't felt that. For me it was more notorious the inclusion of minorities in the sequels:

      Female Protagonists (Rey & Jyn)
      Asians (Chimrrut & Rose)
      Blacks (Finn & Saw Gerrera)

      and the lists goes on...

      I'm actually a bit impressed that no homosexuality has been shown in the saga. Likely, don't think they will do this in the very last movie from the saga.

    4. Teoskaven


      Wait, the federation leaders are supposed to be japanese? They speak with a russian accent in the italian dub.

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Teoskaven No joke, it's straight up dudes doing stereotypical Japanese and and Chinese accents.


  24. Today I heard Bendis is making Rogol Zaar a Kryptonian... Bendis is making this: maxresdefault.jpg

    A Kryptonian.

  25. More good news. Professional scumbag Alex Jones has to pay the families of the Sandy Hook victims:



    1. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy


      Unfortunately it’s not going to deter people who believe these conspiracies. But the impression I get from reading stuff from families and friends of Sandy Hook victims is that most of their ire is directed not at true believers but instead at people who know the conspiracies are BS but back them anyway for money, attention, whatever.

      This sets a nice precedent for family/friends of the victims to get some justice against the conspiracy theorists who saw a terrible tragedy and thought only of how they could make it about themselves and their agendas.
