Observations

  • INVISIBLES HC BOOK 01 DELUXE EDITION: I have the first two tpbs, and am looking forward to reading this series.
  • LEGION OF SUPERHEROES: GREAT DARKNESS SAGA TP: I’ve always wanted this in a trade. Now you can too.
  • SPACEMAN TP: I heard it’s good. Anyone else?
  • VILLAINS MONTH 3D MOTION COMPLETE SET: Did anyone actually preorder this?
  • MLP FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC 100 PENNY PRESS #1: In case you missed the first print run.
  • SHE-HULK #1: Some people seem really excited to read this.

News

  • AMC will be adding another comic adaptation to its line up with Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. I never got into this series (I bought the first few issues–I wonder how much #! will be soon?), but I know it’s a favorite to many out there in the comic book community.
  • The voice of Jarvis will now be seen as the Vision in the Avengers sequel. Read how the Vision can solve the Robert Downey Jr. problem.
  • Ben McKenzie was cast as James Gordon in Fox’s Gotham. Is anyone else tired of all these tv and movie casting announcements? I don’t even care to watch this anymore.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy hasn’t even debuted in theatres, but already there’s talk of a sequel? I know we comic book fans hunger for more and more validation, I mean, big screen entertainment based on our favorite characters, but come on.
  • Finally, Bergen Street Comics announced that it would only supply Big 2 comics via subscription only. The co-owner stated he wanted to “move away from double shipping, editorially driven, artist-swapping, inconsistent, tied into events/gimmicks comics”. What do you think of this move?
