The New 52: Animal Man

I picked up this and Swamp Thing based on your assessments - so glad I did. I may just end up getting every DC Dark book now - well, maybe not I, Vampire. I was already figuring on Demon Knights, Resurrection Man and JL Dark though. It's like the early days of Vertigo again - only with a consistent ...

The New 52: Batgirl

Hands down my favorite of the books I read today (but I didn't pick up Swamp Thing...yet). I don't know anyone on this planet I would rather have writing this book over Gail. The inner monologue was pitch perfect. You could feel the emotions pouring off the page. Just plain awesome.

The New 52: Stormwatch

This and JLI had the same problem - the cast is too large to introduce well in one issue. I know Cornell can do team books - Captain Britain and MI:13 for example - but this one just seemed a bit...off. Still, I'm coming back for the next issue, and I suspect that I'll be giving this one a reread af...

Digital Comics -- Can They Make The Leap?

I bought Justice League #1 through my iPhone last night at 8pm. Here are the many reasons I found this to be awesome: 1) I didn't have to spend $8+ in gas to get to the nearest shop (which was already closed at that time). 2) I didn't have to wait until the shop was open to get it. 3) I didn't have ...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

I have really enjoyed Uncanny X-Force so far. While Kyle & Yost showed a similar love and appreciation for 80s and 90s X-minutiae, Remender has been able to bring a depth to these characters that honestly hasn't been present for quite some time (especially Deadpool - it's the second coming of the Jo...

When they said Uncanny X-Force was heading to the Age of Apocalypse, this is what I had hoped for. There are so many awesome possible moments with him in 616 now. Exciting!

He doesn't have a huge part - he's only in it for two pages, but he IS there, and it IS a pretty important aspect for any team.

Week 22 Cup O' Joe, Nightcrawler post

The first five issues of Young X-Men were slow to start, but issue #6 (which comes out this Wednesday) does a much better job of getting the team heading in the right direction. Plus you'll get to see part of the role that Kurt's going to play on the team. That being said, Uncanny X-Men is still the...

The freighter gets hijacked by pirates - Spiral and the Reavers! They're looking for gladiators to take back to Mojoworld. There are als...

New trailer for the animated series - it looks like it could definitely fit in a post-Evolution era.

No sign of Nightcrawler, but quite a few unexpected mutants turn up.

New Nighty Toy

This series has not been released yet. Wave 4 (Fantastic Four) just started showing up on shelves this past week. I would not expect to see Wave 5 until late summer - right about when the Brood Queen wave of Marvel Legends comes out.

Some of you might have heard about the Ultimate Alliance game coming out this fall - it's sort of an X-Men Legends 3, only it's opened up to the whole Marvel Universe instead of just the X-Men. But Nightcrawler does put in an appearance (and may be playable...) Kurt goes to the Doctor [Edited on 24/...

Has anyone gotten the PSP versions and had problems with it just locking up when trying to load the last few Danger Room missions?

Actually, if you had included the panel AFTER that one, which has X-23 asking Wolvie if she can borrow the car Friday night...

All in all, this past ToyFare was great - TONS of X-Men Marvel Legends stuff: past, present and future.

Except for one huge problem...

I would love to catch an episode some time...BUT...

He's on opposite Willow.

Alyson's on "How I Met Your Mother" along with Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser) at the exact same timeslot on CBS.

If "How I Met" wasn't laugh out loud funny, I would probably give "Kitchen Confidential" a chance...
