I think Snyder's work on Batman is really good. I loved his Detective Comics run, though I don't know if I'd call it a favorite. His work on the core Batman title isn't quite as good. It's still a fun read but TBH I think it's just a tad bit overrated. Greg Capullo's art ...

I read Year One and TDKR in 7th or 8th grade, which is when I started reading comics. At the time it was amazing stuff, probably because of my early adolescent mind's need for some sort of violent catharsis. And that meant watching Batman dominate evil's butt and shit. I would go back and ju...

I think a LATV series would be a better medium to adapt Evangelion to a western audience than a stand-alone movie. I suggest this cast: Nic Cage - Shinji Emma Watson - Asuka Kristen Stewart - Rei Amy Adams- Misato Kate Winslet - Ritsuko Peter Dinklage - Gendo Morgan Freeman - Fuyutsuki Christian Bal...

I'm trying to decide between buying the Frank Miller & Klaus Janson Daredevil Omnibus (plus the Companion, since it seems to include some essential stories) and Alan Moore's Swamp Thing TPBs. The Daredevil choice would cost a whole lot more, as the Companion is worth over twice a...

I've read up to #105. It's changed drastically in that span of time. The overall feel is kind of like The Walking Dead. There are big developments in the story where the world is shaken up, only for it and the characters to recover to stability and then repeat. The last one I read was issue ...

Mr. Tines used the same word at the top of this page, so after seeing it used twice I was wondering exactly what it meant. Unadulterated self-expression where the comic plays by the creators rules, fetishes, biases and beliefs? I'm not sure. I dunno why I chose to put it in their either. :irked...

I should have used a better word. Actually, the entire segment about Hard Boiled is kind of awkwardly written. Let me clarify. When I began reading Hard Boiled I thought I was in for a book where the themes trying to be conveyed are secondary to the gratuitous imagery. That's not been my experie...

That being said....I...don't know about serial killer Batman. It feels like Dracula Batman, and that got weird. Yeah, I really only came up with that one because I'd just seen Silence of the Lambs and felt inspired. It would be like an Elseworlds tale, back when they did those. I don't ...

Alejandro Jodorowsky's El Topo . It's weird and funny and I loved it. I'm not too knowledgeable of the the philosophies and religions brought up in the movie but that didn't hinder my enjoyment one bit. I particularly liked the mole's "duels" with the four gunmasters. &...

I thought I'd change her name to Queen for this one, as she would be the main antagonist instead of the Joker, who would be Harley Queen's Jester. It's really just to indicate her superior position and higher sense of self-worth in the fic.

Dark Souls II It's pretty much the same game for the third time over. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as I loved playing the previous two, but I didn't feel the same sense of enjoyment with this one. Maybe I've gotten used to the experience of the Souls games. I say that but I c...

Neither of these fic ideas are very original, but I just thought I'd put them up here. Tentative title: Pathologies or The Quiet Cave After watching Silence of the Lambs I had this idea for a fic where Batman is a Hannibal Lecter-style sociopathic murderer. He finally snapped and killed the Joke...

A LAEM produced in Hollywood is bound to be focused on the visual spectacle and battle scenes rather than the introspection and post-modern (am I using that right?) storytelling techniques that are distinctly Eva. In the end the one thing that would make the whole project worth it would be s...

Some thoughts on comics that I've recently read. http://i.imgur.com/OR57jXv.jpg The End of the F***ing World by Charles Forsman The style of art really worked well with this one. It's black-and-white and simply designed to give it a juvenile quality. I can imagine a troubled teenager (or...

Among the multitude of cosmoses there is a universe where I am a harem lead with an assortment of would-be waifus ranging from magical girls to Eva pilots (maybe even some eldritch abominations in the form of moe humanoids).

This is not that universe.

I've long since fallen out of love with The Simpsons (it's nearly a decade older than I am and I don't get a lot of the pop culture references, yet I still enjoyed the early seasons) but when it ends I'll probably lose a tiny part of myself that I can never get back. Oh my Go...
