    i'm glad you didn't either!

    and from the sounds of things I'm glad I'm glad I didn't give his Blackhawks a shot. I honestly wanted to cut him a break, maybe the transformers were just out of his wheelhouse.

    nyet.

    here's the thing, everything in that quote by costa is entirely true, more or less

    that doesn't excuse you from your duties, as a writer, to create with it and allow you to whine because it is hard.

    Superman 7 was pretty good. It got the taste of 6 out of my mouth.

    I read the latest Hawkman and Firestorm issues today to see if those books were improving at all.

    I'm honestly not sure. Hawkman is definitely much better, but once Liefeld takes over again, it will probably all go away. Firestorm seemed just a tiny bit better, but I'm thinking that was more because the setup has all been established now and it was more or less a down issue where things cooled off after whatever big event happened at the end of the first arc.

    Pretty much my thoughts on Hawkman, too. It's way better than the first few issues, but still not quite there yet where I can say "yeah, this is good!"

    Most of the problem lies in that I don't feel they really pieced together a character outline or any kind of cohesive backstory for Carter. He really doesn't have much personality outside of talking like a 80's action movie hero. And supposedly he's been Hawkman for awhile and has some tragedy in his past, but everyone reacts to him like he's a brand new super-hero ... confusing.

    At ECCC, one of the editors made a point to say that characters will failed books won't disappear, but instead will just kind of fall into the general universe.

    That honestly sounds better to me for some of these guys. I'm fine if Static needs to bounce around through guest appearances in other books until someone finds enough of a voice for him to get him his own solo series again. And I'd be fine if that happens with Hawkman, Firestorms, and a lot of the other B- and C list characters in the DCU.

    A lot of them, but not my OMAC. :( And not my likely living-by-the-moment Frankenstein either <img class=" title=":cry:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    Did I hear the guy at ECCC wrong, or did he mention Savage Hawkman as a character that will float around from comic to comic after his comic is gone? Maybe even DC doesn't have faith in Liefeld.

    So last week I picked up 1-6 of Blackhawks
    and O boy it was inconsistant and with a meh storyline {I know JLD was sooo slow 1-6 but still this was rather sad}

    hahahahahahahaha

    Blackhawks was written by Mike Costa, the guy who wrote the horrible and slow transformers ongoing from 2009-2011

    his style is so fucking decompressed, three of his issues make up a single normal one

    his GI Joe run was good, though, so I'm a little bit surprised that he can't write Blackhawks

    then again, his best work was about a guy infiltrating Cobra

    Ahh I saw it was a lot like Gi joe in being a like a Counter Terrorist squad instead of being elite pilots


    Really how hard is it to write Transfromers people do it everyday and sometimes it's all about sex

    So according to Gail Simone at the ECCC panel, Batgirl is selling really well with new, young readers

    I thought that transformers did have sex

    I thought Optimus Prime had a robot girlfriend! Arcee!

    You can tell she was a girl because she's pink, you see

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    Also because she has a molded set of double-ds and an incredibly supplicating nature

    they don't have sex

    they "reproduce", if you can call it that, by making protoforms in factories. the protoforms are educated, take on an altmode, and eventually become full-fledged transformers.

    as for gender, IDW did something reaaaaaally weird. At first, they declared that there were zero female transformers, but, a writer screwed up, and put some female transformers in Megatron Origin. Eventually, they showed that a mad scientist named Jhiaxus, who tried to force evolution of the cybertronian race in various ways, introduced gender to the species by experimenting on various test subjects.

    Arcee was the first subject, the first female transformer. other transformers would involuntarily call her a her, she, etc, which implies that that sort of thing wasn't initially present in their language to refer to each other. she did have a more feminine appearance, but not the ridiculous DDs of other versions of Arcee.

    This drove Arcee nearly insane, and she swore to kill Jhiaxus. She eventually found him and beat him up horribly, and got satisfaction out of the fact that no matter what she did, he couldn't die, and he could be "killed" over and over again.


    Plus, Elita-1 is Optimus's girlfriend, not Arcee.

    @Arivia

    the only supplicating or "weak" or stereotypically feminine Arcees are poorly written Arcees
    which, coincidentally, links up to only the Japanese versions of Arcee

    she's always been shown as an incredible warrior that viciously defends her comrades from threats

    I've heard of Arcee before (for some reason I never remembered her when I watched the classic series) but she only made an impression with the Prime series. Great character.

    of course

  • AntimatterAntimatter if you want to talk to me look elsewhere.Registered User regular
    again

    she is never supplicating unless someone is doing something wrong

    in japan, she was a secretary. in the US, she was a crack shot and master hand to hand fighter.

    So reading Johns' interview about Shazam on AICN today, and then going back and rereading the Shazam back-up ... is the implication we're supposed to pick up on is that Freddie and Mary are going to be the other foster kids he's going to go live with?

    So Mary's not going to be his blood sister this time around?

  • TexiKenTexiKen Was it Kierkegaard or Dick Van Patten who said, Registered User regular
    Probably not, let's just pray the Shazam doesn't oggle Mary Marvel in a Guy Gardner type way in the DCnU.

    Billy is going to hook up with Mary

    the she gets killed by Black Adam

    Shazam swears that he will have his brutal revenge

    a classic story for all ages!

  • TexiKenTexiKen Was it Kierkegaard or Dick Van Patten who said, Registered User regular
    Which leads to an evil version of Mary Marvel.......Bloody Mary Marvel.

    Who of course embarks on a string of murders where she tears various protestant leaders to bits

    Now Billy must kill his adopted sister/girlfriend or become a martyr himself!!!

    JLI got really bad in the span of two issues.

    Spoilers for JLI AND OMAC:

    So not only is
    Spoiler:
    but now
    Spoiler:
    Also, OMAC shows up, and he's not even the same as he was at the end of OMAC 8.
    Spoiler:

    The only decent thing is that it gave Batwing a real reason to be in Gotham for Night of the Owls.

    And next month's issue is a tie-in to Firestorm, which makes me wonder if that's why JLI has suddenly turned into one of the most grimdark books at DC after being consistently light and entertaining until now.

    Also, the end of OMAC was goddamn heartbreaking, and we should all light a candle and take a moment to reflect on the now dearly departed best book of the New 52.

    Yeah JLI is feeling really blah on the palate after being one of my most consistently enjoyable DC books. I hope it picks up again after the Firestorm crossover.

    They're just going through a rough patch right now, and only one person on the team died, the rest are just banged up pretty bad.

    You guys need to look on the bright side here, with OMAC's book coming to a close they could have ulterior motives for his arrival.
