Comic Books!

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

I have yet to read that but I know that was a Dark Horse, I'll give it a look ^_^

Even before that, Disney has never had an issue relating R rated films. IIRC they used Miramax for that.


Ah this makes sense now, as I recall princess mononoke was released through Miramax and not Disney Pixar.

Finally back to reading comics with moderate consistency.

Finished...
William Gibson's Alien 3 comic adaptation by Dark Horse.
- Surprisingly decent story (I recognize I am in the minority here)
- Only serious complaint was them not using Ripley in virtually anyway (not sure if this was at the stage where the producers inexplicably wanted to push Hicks as the lead or if this was the stage where they simply didn't expect Weaver to come back for monetary reasons), thankfully they did not kill her off like one of the other alternate scripts did.
- The Alien propagating like a airborne virus didn't bother me as much as I expected as it was a one off mutation.
Batman - Last Knight on Earth
- Good quick post apocalyptic Batman story.
A Red Mass for Mars
- Decent.
- First time I agreed with Johnathan Hickman's reputation for writing sterile emotionless characters. Didn't get that from his fantastic Avengers runs at all.

Currently reading...
Three Jokers (2020)
- Great.
- Heavy focus on Barbara & Jason.
- Fabok's art is fantastic. Only weakness is not making the Comedian & The Clown look different enough from each other. The Criminal is the only one who stands out.
Detective Comics (2011 - new 52)
- I have read up to issue #14. Don't get the hate. Of course it's not as good as Scott Snyder's Court of Owls but it's still solid.
- Dr Toxic was a interesting unique villain.
The Eternals (1976)
- First issue held my attention more than expected, gonna try and make my way through all the various Eternals series before the movie comes out.
Plunge by the son of Stephen King.
- Very happy Stuart Immonen isn't retired as I heard.
- 1st issue was solid. Characters fleshed out well enough.
Thor (2018)
- Behind on Thor for the first time since I started reading him around 2009.
- Del Mundo's art is not fitting the book nearly as well as expected.

Man, I've really fallen behind with my comics. I was halfway through Doomsday Clock and Heroes in Crisis when I stopped, randomly, and I think that was early/mid-last year. I have something of a small backlog to get through as well.

- Bendis is taking over Justice League (Blue Monday screams in the distance :D ) with a pretty different team line up including Hippolyta (instead of diana), Black Adam (instead of shazam) & Bendis OC Naomi. No Martian Manhunter, Flash or Lantern (:|
Pics...

I hope we get a alternate secondary JL team (with a better creative team) with Diana, Manhunter & Mera on it.

- The Crime Syndicate is getting their own mini series, something I have hoped for for a while.
Designs aren't as good as their new 52 counterparts sadly (power ring does look good at least, owlman looks solid aside from the eyes)
SPOILER: Show

The new 52 versions for comparison...

- A hammerless Beta Ray Bill is getting his own series spinning out of the current Cates Thor run.

- Gulliem March will be drawing a Joker series.
