I wouldn't worry about the connection, it's probably just to cash in on the success of the games.

As of right now, it does sadly appear that way. I can forgive that, though, if it's a good movie. But this is (from what I can remember) the first DC animated feature that doesn't interest me at all from the first trailer.

 

 

Anyhoo, I picked up the Zero Year Flash tie-in and Detective Comics #30. I like what I've read so far, and that last page definitely makes me want to pick up the next issue. I just recently added Batman Eternal as well as Batman And... to my pull list though, so I think that's enough Batman per month. Still debating on whether or not I should get the rest of the DC Icarus arc or just wait for the hardcover instead. That art is definitely worthy of the hardcover treatment.

It seems like the story will be kinda generic. Thats a lot of Batman bro.

Sweet. I just recently added it back to my pull list with the final issue of the Two-Face arc. Didn't know what was going on story-wise, but I just wanted the Steampunk variant. The Aquaman issue was really good though.

By now Batman: Year Zero almost feels like a remake of the Nolan trilogy.

Yeah, no joke. That's how I've felt about it for a couple of issues now. It's crazy. I hope they do an animated adaptation soon.

I agree about X-Files Conspiracy being awesome. It was amazing.

DC released a new animated short for Batman Beyond, as they've been doing animated shorts for the 75th anniversary of Batman & Superman.  It also has a nod to the "His Silicon Soul" episode of TAS. 

 

 

 

Sadly, this is probably the only new animated material we'll probably see.  As DC seems more focused on adapting the more recent comics of Justice League, Batman & Superman to animated movies.

That short was fantastic, I loved it. Strange Days was okay too. 

 

You're right though. If we ever see Batman Beyond again (which is what I personally wish would make a comeback), the only hope is probably as an animated movie based on one of the recent comic book arcs. 10,000 Clowns would be a great choice for that, I think. It'll likely never happen though.  

 

I'm hoping at some point during all this 75th anniversary celebration maybe we'll get an official look at batfleck's costume. Hell, I'd settle for a peek at the cowl at this point.

I Find it weird and slightly disturbing how little of a shit I give about Batman of Steel 2 Electric Boogaloo. I Tried watching Man of Steel again and I couldn't even make it into an hour, that movie just straight up makes me furious and I still got nothing against Affleck, but him being directed by Snyder just doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

So I just saw an article that said a Chew TV show is coming - it is going to be animated but there are also talks of a live action show being developed as well.  I hope they do a good job with it...

Ending of the Walking Dead Negan arc was king of "meh" in my opinion, but in my opinion the whole comic has been kind of "meh" for the last 3 years. I get much more excited about Invincible than Walking Dead.

 

I saw some pictures of the upcoming covers for Avengers Undercover and saw Nice with a zombie Alex. I wonder if they are actually going to dig him up since I don't think he has been mentioned for probably like 8 years or so.

The reveal of the Batman Eternal baddie kinda feels as seminal as Black Goliath getting killed off in Civil War. Like I feel they think it's a big deal, but it kinda comes off (at least to me) as "huh, no one else to spare?" His douchey shirt doesn't help either.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one. It felt a little anticlimactic, but I guess it's a change of pace?

They've got another 49 issues, I don't think  this is  THE bad guy just yet.

The mind games thing and the first issue skipping into the future with Bruce without his cowl tied to the Bat Signal makes me think Hugo Strange is going to make his new 52 debut. Even than the baddie of the moment doesn't feel like he deserves the near Joker levels of gasp and shock. Especially since the only presence he's ever had is really in just two mini-series and really nothing else as far as I can remember.

I feel the same way. It's just stupid to use him. I'm sure Kite Man could have been used just as well.

Hell, they could've just made it an original villain instead of the hope that people read those two series and felt he had such an intimidating presence (he didn't) that he's suppose to be a big deal. Like really, I don't know who they're suppose to appeal to with that reveal, fans who got into Batman via new 52 won't know dick on who he is, while everyone else is really just shrugging relentlessly. Though I am for the return of Kite Man and his razor sharp kites of death taking over Gotham.

It does seem stupid. Even in the Long Halloween I didn't really care about him. He seems especially lame to show up after 90% of Gotham is controlled by insane super criminals. They should just have someone kill him within the first 5 issues. It's soooo stupid to have him prancing about trying to be a badass in that world. He isn't Black Mask.

kite man sounds like a future mega man boss

(if mega man was still making games)

 

so what have I missed in the x-men world? Haven't kept up with much since battle of the atom, is wolverine and the x-men done?

 

 

Also disappointed in the X story in the mega man comic I thought it was getting its own comic its just the back pages of the current mega man story. Booo shit won't be done until Jan of next year

Anyone with a comixology account should sign in and check their account balance. I got an email saying I was given $5 to celebrate the launch of their new update. Sweet. What's not sweet is that it sounds like, if I read things correctly, our payment methods will now have to be on our comixology account and paypal is no longer an option. I don't know for sure yet, haven't bought anything.

 

Anyhoo, does anyone know if Teen Titans: Year One is worth reading? I noticed it's on sale at comixology. I'm also considering getting the remaining issues of Danger Club, because I only ever bought the first one.

Danger Club hasn't had a new issue in like over a year. It's pretty frustrating and by now I went from loving the Fuck out of what I read to really indifferent. It also ended on a pretty big cliffhanger.

Hey all.  Pretty new to comics.  Been collecting for the last year or so, but mostly HC and only a few books per year.  Started out with Walking Dead.  Then collected a few Invincible, Kick-Ass and Fables volumes. I haven't read any of them except for TWD, which I'm up to Book 4....ya, I seem to collect for the sake of collecting. 

 

Any advice on which series to look into?  With FCBD coming up this saturday I've been researching a bit.  Hellboy peaks my interest so I'll probably pick up 1 or 2 of the Library Editions and maybe BPRD Omnibus 1 and 2.  Powers is another series that seems interesting so I hope to purchase a few of those. 

 

Also, where do you guys usually purchase your comics from?  I recently found

Spoiler
, which seem to be pretty cheap and have good reputations.  What are the usual sale prices during FCBD?

 

Thanks an advance and sorry for the long (newbie) post.

FCBD has certain comics that are freebies that are made for FCBD. Some stores may have limits on the free books. Some stores may offer sales on their current stock. It all depends on the owner.
