  1. I'm away for a couple days and Dan Didio has been fired!? Wow, end of a long stupid era.

  2. Just heard about Gareth leaving. What's up with 2020 being the end of entertainers in some way.

    1. Kuzu


      I heard he was going through a lot, so him leaving was probably for the best. 

    2. Balding Spider

      @Kuzu Yeah divorce isn't easy, and that part about dipping into the patreon to help support his family and himself was heartbreaking.

      I guess Gareth from Brainscratch Comms and FTCR?

    5. Dejimon11


      Yes it's that one. It sucks but I do hope that everything works out for him. And I do hope Chris does a good job at running FTCR

    6. PaddyFancy


      Aww man I'm reminded of that Sonic Heroes race where he had his wife shave off his hair for charity.


    Oh no, Rush Limbaugh has lung cancer....


    1. Myst


      Sad news. :(

      Hope he makes a speedy recovery.

    2. Dejimon11


      Regardless of the type of person he is nobody deserves that. 

  4. For real people stanning for Hillary need a reality check. She's around the same level as republicans with social issues. She said trans rights pose a concern for Cis women. She called young black men super predators (yeah like callin' us thugs wasn't enough), oh and she and Bill had slaves.

    Yes really: https://www.currentaffairs.org/2017/06/the-clintons-had-slaves


    TBF that also involves some fucked up prison system shit too.reminded

      I always said that the USA's 2016 elections were just about voting for the lesser of two evils.

      If everyone could take their minds off material goods for five seconds, they might also realise that their way of life regarding social issues also needs to be improved and upgraded. Even in Australia, I feel like American life is a joke.

      So Bernie really was the only good one? (I legit don’t know, I’m just asking)

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Big Panda Well he was the best option of them in 2016

  5. To anyone reading comics today, don't bother with the latest Justice League.

    1. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      What happened this time?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      The same thing that always happens with Snyders JL books.


      Basically they power up, it looks like they will win, and then don't and lose. This shit keeps happening throughout all his Justice League and it's so effing tired. Also turns out it was all set up for another big comic event and that nothing the heroes could have done would matter.

      It's the worst of anime storytelling stitched into a comicbook.

    3. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Oh god. Is it as bad as Heroes in Crisis?

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Nina Cortex Jovahexeon No where near as bad as that, but it feels like a bigger waste of time after all the time invested in it. Throughout the run the book had several pacing problems making it feel like it was needlessly drawn out. And the final issue felt like one giant rush job. It's strangely disappointing and apathetic at the same time.

      I can't believe this is the way they end the story, a setup to another Crisis that will probably reboot the DC Universe again. I'm done. I'm only gonna read Justice League Dark, because that book can actually deliver.

    5. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Oh yeah, I'm so enjoying Justice League Dark. As well as the Dark Multiverse too.

  6. Wow, so Darksydephil is going bankrupt?

  7. Happy that Somecallmejohnny and the SGB crew can end on their own terms.

    1. Dejimon11


      It's not super best friends. Let's be glad about that.

    2. Waveshocker Sigma
    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Waveshocker Sigma Yeah SGB is coming to an end.

  8. What's the gameplan for the Star Wars films? Should they give them a rest and let the shows hold it down?

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      It seems like the plan already, putting things like the intended Boba Fett and Obi Wan on hold. (Salavged as shows, presumably)


      And for all I know, let's keep it dat way.

    2. Failinhearts


      That is the plan, especially with Solo's box office failure. Star Wars movies will be on hiatus and Disney Plus will be the focus for a while.

    3. Ferno



      but like this


    4. Sean


      Star Wars is officially cancelled forever

    5. I Have Berry!
    6. Miragnarok


      Focus on TV and streaming.

    7. dbzfan7


      Luke wakes up from his sequel fever dream.

  9. read some spoilers about TROS. Fuck this whole trilogy.

    1. Boomer


      Pretty much. Skywalker saga my arse. 

    2. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Ok boomer.

      No offense but I love this trilogy, it's what got me to watch Star Wars at the cinema, it's my own generation of Star Wars.

    3. Ryannumber1Scarer


      Y’know, you could explain why you like it instead of just claiming Balding is being a boomer, when he could have like actual criticisms of the movies.

      and that’s coming from someone who fairly likes the two movies we got so far.

    4. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      I'm just using the meme when someone kills hype/excitement for something. I said no offense. I explained why I like the trilogy. Plus he didn't really explain why he hates the trilogy either, so eh.

    5. AdventChild
    6. Boomer


      And here I thought the OK boomer was at me aha

    7. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      FTR, I'm not a fan of this trilogy mainly because I just don't find the story or characters compelling. I'm more dissapointed than upset with the movies I've seen. It feels like squandered potential than anything else.

  10. Jesus Christ @ Scorbunny's final evo.

    1. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      I think that one was a mid Evo 

    2. Lord-Dreamerz


      @Whispering Ultima

      It isn't a mid form, look at what level it has to be to reach that form on the pic, LV49. And it is from the same page as all the other final forms in the book.

    3. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Welp that's strange that this is it's final Evo cause it looks like a mid Evo to me.

      Hopefully we'll get clear pictures

  11. Rest in peace John Witherspoon.

    VA of Grandad in The Boondocks, Pops in Friday, and so many other roles

  12. The bigger news is that Rob Liefeld left Marvel comics.

    1. Teospooker


      Oh noes. How will i ever cope.


    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      You won't, we're all living in a post no visible feet Marvel. It's all down from here.

  13. Nice to see Playtonic find there footing with the Yooka-Laylee series. I'm listening to the Gamexplain review and I'm liking what I'm hearing.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's great to hear that the game is good. But I'm always going to be disappointed that YL was so meagre, and that the sequel isn't 3D. Feels like it's not what the series was supposed to be...

  14. Decided to get ahead of the curve and dawn my Halloween themed avatar.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Get on my level mate. 

  15. This Creepshow series is already more promising than the new Twilight Zone.

  16. All right, time to watch the new Creepshow series.

    Edit: Yo, they got Adrienne Barbeau back!

  17. I mean we already knew Ike Perlmutter was a racist sexist shit piece, but I suppose more statements couldn't hurt: https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/09/24/disney-ceo-bob-iger-captain-marvel-black-panther-ike-perlmutter/

  18. There's no way Marvel didn't crib from The Flash. Everything I'm reading ATM is straight up One More Day, but better.

    I mean I just got to the retconned relationship part, but it's clearly shown it's going to be addressed. None of that years long teasing nonsense that Spidey has to deal with.

    1. Celestia


      It's bizarre to me that Marvel's been so stubborn about OMD. I guess even though things often get reversed in comics, the entire point of the story was reversing something, but...for once it's not an exaggeration to say that everybody hated it.

  19. Flash did One More Day, but did it right...what the hell?

    1. Dejimon11


      You mean Flashpoint?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 No I mean issue 128-129 of Wally West as the Flash by Mark Waid. It's literally One More Day but it makes sense, and was thought out.

    3. Dejimon11
    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Yeah, demon bargains and everything.

  20. The late 80's Flash issue #121 in which we see an old politician push for "the good old days" including denying the local LGBTQ community rights.

    But comics were never political right?

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I’m surprised a late 80s comic even mentioned the LGBTQ community.

    2. Teospooker


      The bronze age was all about that, the drug war, AIDS, alcohol, you name it.

  21. Reading the Mark Waid Flash run, and hes made Reverse Flash really creepy.

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

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

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

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

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

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

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

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

  25. 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 Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Maybe they only watched the first 5 minutes of X2?
