My sarcasm detector is working fine here.

I like Pratts character in Parks n' Rec. He'd have to trim down a bit but I'd be fine with him playing Star-Lord.

His physique was pretty good in Zero Dark Thirty.

And for some reason I keep thinking Groot as voiced by Vin Diesel and did anyone hear the rumor that we maybe getting a Planet Hulk film for Phase 3?

Actually reading up on Chris Pratt, he's actually gained 60 pounds for a movie role after Zero Dark Thirty. In short, it'll be interesting to see his body change back and forth in Parks and Rec.

Oh, that's why he's so chunky recently. I was worried that he was going to be pretty bad by the time he hits forty, like some actors of his stature.

Pratt seems like a guy who would always be about 20 lbs overweight if he just lived his life normal. I'm sure he has to bust his ass to get in that shape in the picture up there.

Usually I hate Marvel announcing their crossovers before the crossover prior has begun, but I'm looking forward to Hickman writing the one after Ultron Unleashed. Especially with how things are shaping up after reading New Avengers, which the last page had a feel similar to another DC Crisis event.

Batman #16 is one of the best comic books I've read in a long long time.

Marvel NOW is pissing me off. It's all over the place. Fantastic Four is garbage, I'm dropping it. Someone let me know if it gets good.

I Remember the first Judge Dredd comic I read was the Judge Death arc and it wasn't a bad start off point. That was also the introduction of Anderson and had the movie not tanked, it basically would've been where the sequel would've gone for the films. If you enjoyed that, then go and read Judge Death Lives! which brought this amazing panel that I wish would've been replicated in the movies.

Goddamn I wish that movie had made a ton more money...

I'm hoping Dredd has a big blue ray/dvd following similar to office space. I bought it just to support it, looking forward to watching it.

Hickman is completely knocking it out of the park with both Avengers and New Avengers. Especially, New Avengers. He's working towards something huge.

Thanks. I'll look for those.


And I agree. Saw it in theaters and thought it was incredibly awesome. Favorite comic movie of last year easy and possibly my favorite movie overall from 2012.

I Just hate how everyone compares it to The Raid just based on premise and totally agree on best comic movie of 2012. It was also without a doubt the best money I ever put down for 3D in a theater ever. Otherwise if you enjoyed those books just know Judge Dredd books are mostly just one main series minus a few mini series or one shots here and there so it's just one giant continuity and universe all it's own, which I find awesome since some of the characters age and develop as well. It also means that somehow the Batman and Alien crossovers tie into that world as well. Judge Death I think was the 5th or 6th story arc, while Judge Death Lives takes place after the last arc after Judge Death if I remember right.

I Know some Scott Pilgrim/Bryan Lee O'Malley fans here, but he's doing a collaboration with Mondo to create a limited edition Battle Royale poster for Alamo screenings of the film. I Find it pretty awesome, especially in comparison to the film version of what Kitano drew.

DC will be cancelling Deathstroke, Team 7, Ravagers, Sword of Sorcery, Savage Hawkman, and Fury of the Firestorm in May and replacing them with two political comics, The Green Team and The Movement. Luckily I don't read any of those, but I can also say that I won't be reading the new additions either and I can't imagine politics is what comic readers are looking for nowadays.

Yep, looks like they pretty much just got rid of all the pure shit. I am still great upset that I, Vampire is gonna be gone. Everyone goes out and buys the shitty Batman and Superman books, but nobody reads I, Vampire. Pretty pathetic.

On what was actually cancelled, I actually kinda liked Sword of Sorcery, but DC has always been pretty terrible at trying to sell a genre (high science-fantasy) that they've never really done outside of Justice League Dark. That only sells because it has the Justice League tag on it.

I'm pretty heartbroken that I, Vampire and Team 7 will be gone. Loved both of them. Sword of Sorcery was good too, but I just didn't like it as much as either of them. Oh well, that's two books gone that I actually bought every month, so yay for money saved.

That's awesome, I'm a huge fan of both (although I'm mostly a fan of the Battle Royale novel, the movie is alright). I'd love to have a print of that.

Demon Knights kind of falls into the genre, although I've been kind of mixed on that series, there are parts of it I've enjoyed and parts that have just been kind of awkward. We'll see were it goes now that the plot is going in a new direction, although I'm not really sold on this new plot so far.

I was also enjoying Sword of Sorcery, like everyone else I'll agree that it wasn't a totally amazing book, but it was certainly enjoyable.

--

I'm almost to the end of Y: The Last Man which I've been reading through. I'm really enjoying it a ton so far and I'm really interested to see how it's going to end. Honestly I think the book kind of made it clearer to me why I adore Brian K. Vaughan's works so much, and it's that he knows how to write relatable and interesting characters, and he relies on those characters to really create the story rather than trying to craft a story which has characters in it. Which is actually the exact same reason my favorite literary author is John Steinbeck, I feel like Steinbeck totally understood how to create characters who could be totally felt and understood to the point where even seemingly mundane actions seemed important and interesting because of how close a relationship I felt to them as a reader.

If you like Andrea Sorrentino's work, then you should check out Green Arrow #17. Jeff Lemire is in the new writer and Sorrentino the new artist. It's pretty good and the pencils and page organization is fantastic.
