Re: this coffee tastes like ass

Update on my friend and her baby. They were able to stop labor for another couple weeks to give her a bit more time and give the baby a somewhat better shot. A couple of days ago she went back into labor. After about fourteen hours, her little guy was born... silent. He opened his eyes and tried to ...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

My husband and kids are having the time of their lives at Salt Lake Fan XPerience. I had opted to skip it this year because I couldn't afford a table and attending conventions as just a fan hasn't been as fun since crowding indordinantly stresses me out. Just when I thought I might be able to knuckl...

So I'm not the only one who felt this last issue was very rushed, then.

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Ehhh, I don't see gender stereotypes as being a prevalent problem in Claremont's work. He has a grasp on writing female characters who don't fit the "girlfriend" role that too many other writers- including a number of newer ones- lack. As for Gail Simone, I've seen a lot of sides to both her and her...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

#7 was wonderful, though there really wasn't much plot to speak of. This issue really made heavy use of Claremont's strengths- a wonderful grasp on scripting, beautiful prose, and the ability to get into a character's head and make people care what they're thinking and feeling.

And all of that, in turn, is tribute to the John Carter of Mars books, of which Claremont and the late, great Dave Cockrum have been huge fans.

They sure did.

Re: Nightcrawler's name

That's always been a matter that gave me a bit of a headache, even after the latest Origen retcon, which had Kurt taking the name of a kindly priest who defended him. I always liked the explanation offered by the '90's animated series the best- Wagner was the name of the family that adopted him.

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

If the body's reconstruction is a supernatural phenomenon, no DNA is necessary. To be certain, this is not the resurrection scenario I would have preferred. That would have involved Kurt showing up, people wondering how he came back, and him shrugging and saying, "Of course I came back. I'm Catholic...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

I'm not going to sweat the details unless they goof something up. Right now, the only thing I don't like is the insistence that Kurt no longer has his soul. As long as the new body and soul stay together, Kurt still has his soul. And if the body is an exact reconstruction of what used to embody Kurt...

You may have to scroll down to see this, but any idea who that well-dressed young blue guy is? He dropped by my table at Salt Lake Fan XPerience, and I just had to have a picture taken.

Re: Sexism & Violence In the Comic Industry

Thank you, thank you thank you, and keep it up. It's sad to say, but too often, female creators are not in a good position to call out sexual harassment and other vile behaviors, especially when one or more of the perps is also a comic book creator. The comic book industry is insular enough that the...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

If Claremont doesn't know how to write a contemporary comic, I don't want him to learn! I've always liked the balance he kept between action and character moments. If anything, I kind of felt the action in the latter parts of the book was too rushed.

Re: Aaron leaves Amazing X - Kyle & Yost to take over

It's always seemed to me that Fraction was just trying to pass the buck, likely over flack he took for that disaster of a funeral he wrote. "Don't blame me if the funeral sucked. Blame Chris Yost for killing off Nightcrawler." It also appears that he's forgotten who suggested killing off Nightcrawle...

I'm not adverse to Kurt and Amanda reuniting, provided the relationship remains one between Kurt and a friend he knows he cannot trust. I actually would think less of Kurt if he got back together with Amanda romantically, not just because of the whole incest-like nature of that relationship, but bec...
