The New 52: Swamp Thing

Thanks guys! I think a big thing is that I am 100% new to Swamp Thing, so I don't know the mythos at all. But I'm willing to give it a try :). The first issue was interesting enough to keep me for at least the next few.

The New 52: Batgirl

I really liked this. And I was on the fence about reading it, Gail Simone hasn't thrilled me in the last few things I've read. But it was fun and exciting and I am really intrigued by this Mirror character. And I loved the turmoil and the memories of her shooting which, in this case, temporarily par...

The New 52: Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E

I totally agree, Bamfette, this was fun! I'm a big fan of Lemire, and this didn't disappoint. I have to say, I got alot of joy from meeting his team, essentially made up of your typical Halloween monsters. Loved that.

The New 52: Swamp Thing

Ok, I need help. I enjoyed this book, but I feel like I was missing out on something. I know literally nothing about Swamp Thing except that he had a show or something. Or movie. Are there any basics I should know going in that will help me to understand and enjoy this more?

The New 52: Red Lanterns

When it comes to DC, I am a Green Lantern fan. I've gone all the way back to issue 1 and loved every second. One of my favorite things to come out of GL mythos in the past years has been the other corps, based on the colors of the spectrum, each representing an emotion. Loved this concept, LOVE the ...

Abstinence only vs Sex Education

Those articles are breaths of fresh air in the climate we are facing lately. More and more politicians seem to be jumping on the "abstinence only" bandwagon, even though time and time again it's been proven it does not work . I don't get society's insistence on avoiding statistical evidence and medd...

The Netflix Queue: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

Ah drat, missed that you had all ready linked it but yes, that might be my favourite scene in a cracktastic sci-fi channel movie of all time. I've found it's oddly applicable to outside conversations as well. I will agree the scene is almost better out of context than it is in. But considering ther...

That's very true. Jessica was kind of unclear, as far as whether becoming a vampire changes a personality. I loved Jessica's transformation, I loved what a bitchy teen she was. It will certainly be interesting to see if the transformation is more than physical. You know, I was thinking today of how ...

I'm not sure what is more unbelievable about this film. That a megalodon and giant octopus (just a giant octopus. Nothing special, never explained. Not a squid, which does come in "giant" sized. A giant octopus) become unfrozen and wage war on everyone and anyone, or that Debbie Gibson is a scientis...

"First Class" movie

I agree that Emma Frost was the weak point. They intended to give her a "frosty" personality, (according to the DVD extras :urg) but I think the actress didn't pull it off at all. I agree. I don't think she came off as frosty, she came off as complacent and bored. Favorite scenes - The cameo of Wol...

Yeah really. The opening of X2 was one of the best scenes from all of the movies combined. Everything else was kind of dissapointing though. But I'll be contraversial here - I don't dislike Alan Cumming, I think he's a pretty good actor. However, I don't think he was necessarily a good casting choi...

To answer the Betsy question, if they ARE going to have two versions of her running around then I'm pretty certain its 616 Betts in UXF, from everything I've been reading about coming up. Remender did a podcast and during the second year of UXF he's got a big Betsy arc coming up in Otherworld and h...

What she said. Honestly though, you're right.

I would see Nightcrawler & Husk. Unfortunately, Warren tapped that. So I dunno how he would've handled it. But Darkholme might be the suave type and I can see him making a run for her. I wonder if they'll put Darkholme with anybody within his first 3-months of introduction? Would be a good way of g...
