I remember you asking about the X comic heres a  pic its dr.cain finding X I assume so it should be out soon hopefully

Spoiler

Ah! Cool, thanks.

 

Yeah, I just subscribed through Atomic Empire. The February issue is the debut of X, so that'll be my first one. I don't know much about the original Mega Man but I'm hoping I'll be able to follow along with that part of the comic easily enough. Hopefully it won't be right in the middle of a story arc or something.

 

What I love is that from now on (or at least for the issues solicited so far) you can choose between a Mega Man cover or a X cover for each issue. I've gone ahead and selected the X covers. Really looking forward to it.

I Got an odd question that's been bugging me. I Haven't read any of the big X titles outside of Uncanny Avengers and I got to ask does Cyclops now shoot giant X shaped optic blasts at people because of his new hood, visor, mask or whatever you call it? A part of me is hoping he does and then says a one liner. Something like "X gets the square" or "Survey says...".

Eh, I gave up on AvX by the 4th issue so spoil away if you want. If you want to tell me it's because he's super ecstatic now from having his head hit by Thor's hammer and wants to share it with the world with giant X shaped optic blast wounds, I'd totally believe you as well.

I Haven't read a story with Cyclops in a while, but I'll gladly take douchey Cyclops over younger Cyclops merely for the fact that his costume's color wasn't dependent on the first Skittles color he got out of a bag.

Really want to like Harley Quinn. I Enjoy the art by Hardin and I loved Conner and Palmiotti's Power Girl, but fuuuuck the writing feels so half assed with no real direction. Two issues in and I want to drop it, but I want to give it one more issue out of blind hope that it'll suddenly turn around. Can anyone write Harley Quinn besides Paul Dini? ANYONE?

 

Also I feel more excited about DC's live action TV projects a billion times more than Man of Steel 2/Batman vs. Superman/Justice League or whatever they're calling it.

Yeah, my excitement levels are through the roof when it comes to the various DC tv shows that are in development.

 

Superman vs Batman? Eh. Showing me a pic of the new batsuit might help, but really... even if it does indeed turn out to be a secret Justice League movie, my excitement for it has bottomed out. The supposed delay really killed the hype. 

 

Has anyone here ever used DCBS (Discount Comic Book Service) before? I'm really, REALLY trying to give them a shot... but I've made two orders through them and they were both wrong when they arrived. I'm just trying to decide whether or not to give them another chance, but I've got tons of pre-orders through them and I can't say that I have any confidence that I'll get what I paid for. I'm still waiting for a reply on Monday from their customer service to see how they deal with their latest screw-up.

Anyone else looking forward to Dredd Underbelly and/or Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1? First (paper/single issue) comics I'll be buying in years.

I'm interested in Leaves on the Wind. I'm curious to see how they tie-up the few loose ends from the series and movie. Plus, all (few) previous Firefly comics have pretty stellar. The last I believe was the Wash one-shot from a few years back.

I've used DCBS for about 2 years now with no problem. The one issue I had was thanks to FedEx losing a box, but when I contacted DCBS about it they offered to send a replacement with whatever they still had in stock right away. Fortunately the original box turned up, but the experience was pretty good for customer service.

Every shipment has been perfect so far, so I'm surprised to hear they messed up 2 shipments for you. Hope their customer service works out!

Yup pumped for Dredd. I also picked up Mega City 2 once I found out it would only be 4 issues.

I've been looking forward to Serenity: Leaves on the Wind as well, although I've not read any of the other Firefly comics. I'm not the most die-hard fan of the show but I do enjoy it quite a bit. I'll probably end up rewatching the series before I read the comic.

That's good to hear. I had a feeling that it was just some bad luck, 'cause I've never heard any other negative things about them. Always nice to get more reassurance though.

Everytime the young X-men make an appearance I'm always waiting for something to happen with Angel. Either he finds out what happens to him later on or something. At one point way way back he was interested, that was probably like 8 months ago. Cyclops, Beast, Ice Man, and Jean all know what happen to them in the future but Angel just seems to be in the background hanging around doing nothing.

 

He also reminds me how good the Dark Angel Saga was.

 

Edit:

 

Also it seems the bride of Deadpool is out and about. I'm not going to spoil what the story is, but I kind of wish they dragged Outlaw out (from wherever she has been the last 6+ years) because she seemed to be the only currently living female character who actually liked Deadpool as Deadpool. If they didn't want to use Outlaw, then resurrect Copycat. She was a DP stalker way back.

 

It seems they are kind of distancing themselves from everything from the older DP comics. Blind Al, Weasel, Hydra Bob, etc. They all seemed to have pretty much disappeared. Even when they last appeared it was only for like 1 issue way back (except for Bob who hung around for a few).

Unless Lazarus can be used to regenerate like Wolverine, I don't think it's that one.

I Want to believe the Lazarus Pit is a different thing entirely from the one seen in Earth One. Meaning Wolverine regenerative capabilities are possible and also writers love bringing that up during any Batman story in some way to bring people back.

Besides that I read Dredd: Underbelly so far from my pickups this week. Not bad, it's really a DVD extra of a story, but with really nothing grounded. Though if it shows them I loved that movie then I'm all for buying it.

I loved the Earth 2 Annual. Fantastic writing and even though his identity wasn't a surprise, how he does what he does was.

 

Superior Spidey and Invincible were also great reads.
