    Comic books and Manga Thread

    I really liked Action Comics as a team up book. That was always fun and they dug up some obscure people like the Metal Men.

    What is the general opinion around here towards John Bryne's Superman. I read all of that era a couple of years ago and really liked a lot of it. I liked how they brought Superman's powers down a little. I also thought Clark Kent was really well done in this era. He's a super accomplished writer and Lois feels threatened by his success more than anything.
  3. Well, I did a stupid thing and got into the Marvel Legends figures after decades of saying no to toys. I think the kicker was we moved into a new house and I actually have an area for them now. Anyone else here collect any action figures?

    Yeah, I didn't know who Ram V was but he's really won me over with some good work on Swamp Thing thus far.

    R.I.P. Paul "Mr. Wonderful" Orndorff

    Him piledriving Hector Guerrero is one of my favorite angles from SMW.

    Fucking great TV matches

    The match where Sting wins the TV Title from Mike Rotunda. Smartly worked match with a hot crowd, tons of tension and JR and Hayes just killing it on commentary. It's not the best match by any means but I think it's a definitive representation of what NWA wrestling was about.

    The Jim Cornette Experience

    My problem with the women's wrestling push is the constant overpraise of super mediocre matches. Yes, there are some good high end matches in WWE but the vast majority of their women's matches are still snoozefests especially if you have access to promotions like Ice Ribbon or Stardom or even Impact honestly. There's good women's wrestling out there but you wouldn't know it because it's all about a couple of women in WWE. Like a great example is WarGames in NXT. NXT has ruined WarGames in general but the need to have a women's WarGames waters the gimmick down. Like sure, if you have a good narrative reason, go for it but it just feels tacked on most years.

    There's actually a good clip of Cornette talking about comics. He got into Marvel right when it was just pouring out great stuff on a monthly basis. I was actually kind of sad I was younger and couldn't have that same experience with Marvel.

    I find older stuff easier to understand and follow. Things like Marvel Unlimited and DC Universe make buying floppies a poor deal. But your experience isn't unusual. Manga and Scholastic releases like Dog Man just destroy comics now. They did it to themselves with short term thinking.

    Comics have kind of become a game of when they finally cross that line for someone on price and reboots. The fandom does get toxic but the companies all employ very predatory business practices and are just at the point of gouging whatever they can get out of the couple of fabs still buying their books.

    Yeah, that's always the best parts of his shows. I think he has sold off a lot of it. I know he sold his copy of Amazing Fantasy #15.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    I agree on Dracula. I wouldn't say he has any kind of moral code but he often seems to value the game of one upping people making things more challenging. You can tell when he feels threatened because a lot of that goes away. I am really interested to see the elements Hannibal King adds. I didn't know much about the character so the ending of #25 took me a bit by surprise. They are killing me with the slow roll out about Taj though. I want to know so bad and they are just drip feeding his backstory right now and it's so interesting.

    I moved over to Tomb of Dracula and I'm 26 issues into that. It's a really refreshing take on horror with some heroic elements. I really like the early Blade as he brought some much needed flavor to the protagonist side of the book. I really enjoyed the crossover with the Werewolf. Gene Colan is really becoming a favorite artist for me through this book and his Doctor Strange issues. Just such a great attention to detail.

    WWE TV 7/5 - 7/11 I guess no one watched Raw last night

    I think it's past the point of recovering. They have burned people so bad that they would need at least a year of amazing programming to even get people to start giving them a chance again. They would need an entire flush of creative and just start over with new people.

    Yeah, exactly this. He's going to keep doing it and getting away with it until a jury is overly hostile to him or he causes an accident.
