Apollo and Midnighter

littlebamf - they're not technically even DC characters... not until 2 days ago, anyway. They're from Wildstorm, which is getting merged into the DCU with the relaunch. could also get The Authority trades. Warren Ellis' 12 issue run was the best, you really only need those 2, even though The Authori...

The Great 2011 DC Relaunch - 52 New #1's in September

Just in - Hawk and Dove has sold out (... seriously? *sigh*) and, in bigger news, the DC comics app on the iPad just cracked the top 20 highest grossing apps. :) [quote][Comixology CEO] also said the DC launch was a huge success for comiXology: “Huge print run, great excitement, and pushing both the...

No, not you. just in general, there are some of them running around, actively hoping for the relaunch to fail. This isn't the only forum I'm active at. I am way more active at CBR recently than I am here, for instance. But to address some of your points.... You can't be sure of that guy's motives. H...

The Great 2011 DC Relaunch - 52 New #1's in September

So, the first printing of Justice League 1 had pre-orders somewhere above 200,000, and that sold out, so they went back to the printer and got another batch... apparently the SECOND printing has ALSO sold out at Diamond (it will be in shops on the 14th). Granted, pre-orders don't necessarily equal s...

Digital Comics -- Can They Make The Leap?

As we were just discussing, I am doing the same. Show support for what I want without adding to my clutter problem. I will still go to my shop to get trades, namely Vertigo trades since they seem slow on releasing the Vertigo stuff on Comixology (only up to issue 5 of American Vampire! i mean, reall...

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

hm... seems pretty matallic looking to me, but on the other hand there's no real NEED for a lamp or whatever to be in the panel. You never know, i guess. But why would he hide himself if he accidentally got sucked into the 616 universe?

A lot of AoA characters had similar tattoos. And how would moving another soul into his body repair a brain (or any other type) injury, exactly?

It's only a hook to those who know he's a big deal already. I've seen some complain that the problem was that th...

Digital Comics -- Can They Make The Leap?

Issues of comics haven't been collectible for ages now. It was that kind of thinking that caused the speculator bust of the 90's, and ever since then, comics are not collectible in any sense except sentimental. Sure, some people still do get multiple paper issue, but the number is far less than it w...

I fail to see how this deebate on his religion is relevant to the topic at hand. We know 616 Nightcrawler was a Catholic, it's canon. We know AoA Nightcrawler, the one we are now getting, is not, which is also canon. There isn't really much more to discuss, canon is canon.

As with C, this is the first time I have actually liked Psylocke. so often she just fell into monologuing about how badass she was, and it came off as Mary Sue-ish and boring. and I agree about Deadpool. He could have easly become just a funny quip dispenser, but he does have a real depth to him, as...

the jeans are TEMPORARY. The first arc or so takes place several years in the past, before Clark adopts the mantle of Superman, it is the story of how he comes to adopt the title, etc. by the end, the jeans will be gone and he will be in the costume from the Justice League. You don't honestly expect...

Actually, Batman DOES keep all it's past continuity. It and the Green Lantern were DC's best selling properties, so they got to keep nearly all their continuity, with a few relatively minor tweaks, and a timeline compression. Batman Inc will be continuing right where it last left off etc. Even Barba...

I am BAFFLED at how you could think Fantomex and Deadpool are anything alike. I mean, seriously, they couldn't be more different, personality wise. Fantomex has an arrogance to him, he's refined, and values expensive, quality living. His quips are more intelligent and dryly sarcastic than Deadpool's...

Except there are no CURRENT shows or movies that feature Batgirl at all, so how could they have pushed the character? People know Babs as Batgirl from shows that ended YEARS ago, the 60's TV show and Batman: TAS, and there isn't really much DC can do about such a deeply ingrained perception among th...

I don't think they shouldn't do digital. They should go for it while keeping the print editions running for as long as they're sustainable. I just think they need to also pay attention to the bigger picture of making comic books, regardless of format, more appealing to bring in new readers. I reall...

I got that information from someone living in Sweden. I am sure some countries get them faster than others, but not all of them.

Yeah, I share your reservations about them wanting to relive the glory days of the 90's vibe I'm getting from this. But this is a case where we vote with out wallets.

They are not forcing anything. The paper versions will still exist. You want paper, go nuts, get down to your LCS and buy them. Have you seen the sales numbers of comics over the past few years ?
