Re: Thoughts on NINJAK #1 due on July 14, 2021?

I don't have a problem with the linework, especially on a Jeff Parker penned book. But those colors! Painful. I actually tried to imagine some of the pages in B&W and i think they would look a lot better. I don't know if its my broken brain, but there's some Stan Sakai influence in this artwork :hm:

Re: Thoughts on NINJAK #1 due on July 14, 2021?

After looking at the FCBD pages, i can honestly and safely say i'm not a fan. This type of artwork in superhero comics, i.e. cartoony and stylish instead of the usual DC and Marvel house styles... if these are still a thing) usually works for me when the artist is very tight with details and has a "...

Re: Thoughts on NINJAK #1 due on July 14, 2021?

There is something very off with this preview. I did not disliked the more indie-looking artwork, but its certainly not what i expect to see in a Ninjak comic. Too bad there's no action so i could have a better idea of the artist's skills in that aspect, but even then, the dialogue felt off, just do...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Batman by Tynion. Still mediocre Bats book, with made for specs characters every 2 months it appears. I strongly reccommend not getting into it, if you are a Batman fan with some years of reading. Its just bland and a "product". Tynion is killing it (the children :lol: ) on creator-owned titles fro...

Ok, here's a simple question: Is this actually the end of the company or is it another Bad Idea gimmick, as in, they are trolling people with this announcement and the next month or so we get news that its just a rebranding or whatever? I sort of appreciate the sense of humor if its the latter, but ...

Re: 29 years of collecting Valiant...

Wasn't the X-Men REALLY big in 1980? :? That aside :P , I think that you are forgetting one minor detail, if I may: both DC and Marvel had been huge in popular culture at some point before they turned 21. DC invented the genre of superheroes (and made a couple of them quite famous...) and Marvel was...

Some of my thoughts about the Bat-stuff out there: Comics stuff. I grabbed the latest Detective ( #1027 , the 1000th issue with Batman in the book, as everyone knows), and for the price - 9.99- it was a decent chunk of good Batman stories. Nothing that will be remembered as Great Stuff, but neverthe...

There's a serious lack of WTFisms in this book, so far.

There's still half to come, so, let's hope it turns out being one of those type...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

I just read the Absolute Edition of All Star Batman and Robin: The Boy Wonder.

I enjoyed the Batman with an edge, and art (of course) was fantasti...

So, Death Metal, DC's latest BIG event is supposed to be an "Anti-Crisis" where at the end we'll realise that "everything/every story matters". Snyder's words.
