  1. I was gutted when I saw the condolences vignette on the TUF finale last night, that was the first I'd heard about it. I'm glad Shane's doing better.
  2. The TV series was never going to be like the comic and that was said from the get-go. It started pretty similar, but Kirkman has said dozens of times that he is writing two different things. If you keep comparing the show to the novels you are always going to be disappointed IMO so you should stop doing that. The problem is, I shouldn't be disappointed when I compare the show to the comic I've been a fan of since day one. The show should measure up. They were obviously never going to follow the comic word for word, but the quality should still be there. Don't get me wrong, I liked the better part of the first 2 seasons, but season 3, and so far, season 4, have been lackluster. There's also no excuse for making unnecessary changes to main characters the way that they have, even killing some that are crucial to the story. They killed Dale without even doing the cannibal story-line, which explored the lengths some people are willing to go in this new world, and the toll is has on the psyche. They skipped over the winter, which presented some interesting obstacles to the survivors and walkers alike. They killed Lori and Andrea before their time, both of whom are important to Rick's character progression.. I could go on, but I'm not trying to bash the show. It's just hard for me not to draw comparisons, when they keep throwing in these nonsensical changes that detract from the quality of the show.
  3. It also happened in the comic eons ago. Having read the comics, the show isn't as enjoyable. Especially this season and the last. They changed nearly everything, and now they throw in a scene or prop here and there in an attempt to appease people who read the comics. The tank, Gov's head collection, etc. My main problem is Rick's characterizations to this point. They're pretty far off from the Rick that I know. Killing Lori before they were supposed to stunted his character development. Anyway, I hope tonight's episode is better than the rest of the season has been.
  4. Yeah, Uncanny Avengers has been pretty shit. My favorite book of Marvel NOW! is a three way toss-up between All New X-Men, Thor: God of Thunder, and Deadpool. Deadpool has been restored to his former awesomeness by the comedic genius that is Brian Posehn. Posehn's D-Pooly almost reminds me of Fabian's. Daniel Way shit all over Deadpool and his fans for too long. The 1st issue of Thunderbolts wasn't terrible, though. It was mostly just Castle and Thunderbolt Ross conversing.
  5. in the show's defence, Greg Nicotero and Robert Kirkman did state that the differances between the comics and the series are done deliberate to keep fans guessing. i mean, if you were gonna do a tv series based on a comic book, why would you do everything the exact same way. the people that read the comics would be like "Oh i don't need to watch the show, i already know whats gonna happen". Oh, I'm not saying it's bad to deviate from the comics, but some of the ways they choose to do so, as a huge fan of the comic, bothers me. The way things went down with the inmates in particular. Tamos had a way bigger impact in the comic. He actually killed one of the main characters, and then Rick beat him to death. Another thing I don't like about the new season is that they skipped through the first winter. The one improvement they made from the comics is the Shane story ark. He died in the first chapter of the compendium, but they fully explored that whole storyline in the show. I read in a GameInformer interview with Robert Kirkman that this is because he didn't expect the comic to make it past issue 10, and he wanted to finish that particular story before it was cancelled.
  6. The show is nothing like the comic, sadly. I've read every issue, and I still don't know what to expect from the show. It differs from the comic in some very unflattering ways. I despise their clean cut Governor.. He's supposed to look like a white Danny Trejo. They also killed Dale off way too early, and he never hooked up with Andrea, so he died alone. It is cool that they're finally bringing in Rick's best friend, Tyreese, and he's played by the voice actor who portrayed Coach in L4D2.
  7. No love for Lobdell and Rocafort? They've been kicking ass on Red Hood and The Outlaws. It's one of the more consistent DC books. The Superman zero-issue was also very good. For me, Snyder's run on Batman has been kinda lackluster at points. I feel like he has a better handle on the character of Dick Grayson than he does Bruce Wayne. His run on 'Tec before the reboot was far better than his run on Batman thus far. I dunno, Hopefully he'll do a good job with Supes. Two good Superman solo books at the same goddamn time? I'm down with that. It's rare that there's even one
  8. Dustin Nguyen's art is indeed awesome.. I particularly enjoyed Batman: Private Casebook. I think his art complements Dini's writing, and vice versa.
  9. My DC Relaunch Pull List: Action Comics Batgirl Batman Batman and Robin Batman: The Dark Knight Catwoman Deathstroke Detective Comics Green Arrow Green Lantern Green Lantern: New Guardians Justice League Justice League International Nightwing Red Hood and The Outlaws Suicide Squad Superman Swamp Thing Teen Titans Wonder Woman Alex, You should add the ones in italics to your list. Not in my opinion. Deadpool's solo series has been extremely lacking. He's good in X-Force, though. I have to agree.. The Hulk fight was fun, but Deadpoolmax has been much better as of late.
  10. Has anyone else been reading Mark Waid's Daredevil? It's really something. I haven't enjoyed Daredevil this much since Frank Miller was on it. Waid's story telling is on point as always, and Matt Murdock's POV is drawn beautifully. Speaking of Mark Waid, I recommend Superman: Birthright. It's the best telling of Superman's origin, in my opinion.
  11. Just read the final issue of Batman before the DC Relaunch. It was basically a recap of Batman's crime-fighting career, told by Damian. It was perfect. All you could possibly want from a final issue.
  12. I recommend it. That and All Star Superman are my two favorite Morrison stories.
  13. ^ You're missing a few. -New X-Men -Arkham Asylum -DC One Million -Batman and Robin
  14. I wouldn't say they're completely different.. They're both written by Judd Winnick and have the same overall story. The main difference is obviously the way Jason is brought back to life, and Ra's and Talia's involvement. Winnick originally wanted Jason to be brought back using the lazarus pit, but DC insisted on tying it into the Superboy Prime retcon punch. I personally prefer the way the story was told in the movie. Crazy Moon, I'd start with Arkham Asylum. It's more essential than the other two, and is by far the best of the three.
