    Of course, DC decided to ruin that genuinely emotional attachment in more recent comics by revealing that Freeze and Nora were never married at all, she's some random woman who's been cryofrozen that Freeze just randomly became obsessed with while he was still normal. She's something like twice his age now.

    Yeah, sometimes Scott Snyder's and James Tynion's twists-for-their-own-sake are ill-conceived. That said, the change was of the New 52 era, so for all I know it could be put back by now.

    John in Injustice was one of the best characters there. He is such a bastard and has Batman-esque levels of planning.

  • SadgasmSadgasm Deluded doodler A cold placeRegistered User regular
    John Constantine is one of my favorite DC characters, mostly the original Hellblazer version, but the modern one isnt bad or anything. Though I never understood why everyone in DC hates him so much. He's turned back the literal Devil atleast twice, and freed the souls of all the kids trapped in Hell, he's arguably an even greater hero than Superman. I know he screwed up really bad in his early years, but jesus, get off his balls already.

    ...what

    What seems like a really misguided and confusing thing to do. Like, I don't really understand, what is that supposed to accomplish, other than inverting a sympathetic villain into an unlikable creep?

    It was part of their near-universally reviled New 52 initiative, where they messed up a bunch of classic characters with change for the sake of change. Rather than, you know, RESOLVE any of the goddamn stories they've been running for over 20 years. Cant actually let any of the characters have a satisfying ending because then they cant keep writing the same stories over and over.

    I remember that, I believe it was more Tynion's idea than Snyder's since he was the protege.

    Good news is they can easily fix it by saying it's The Watchmen putting too dark a touch on the DCU's timeline.

    I want to like Walking Dead type stories, but the fact that a zombie apocalypse only works when mass idiocy is involved kind of dampers it. World War Z the book is the best attempt I think.

    Literally all you need to stop a zombie horde is elevation and spears. And if swinging a spear is too heavy, you just make one of those pneumatic devices butchers use to kill cattle, that's assume you don't have access to thousands of guns and the internet (There would be an "IiZombie" app in DAYS showing horde movements, etc).

    We really have to be more specific about the type of zombies we're talking about in our zombie apocalypse survival plan.
    Spears and a second story window would work fine for your traditional shambling dumb zombie horde like The Walking Dead, up until the stack of dead zombies reached the window, anyway.
    If you're talking the rage zombies from 28 Days Later or some Resident Evil type scenario where a certain percentage of affected will mutate into ever more powerful zombie forms, maybe not so much.

    I'm a traditionalist, I admit.

    *Groan* While that was a cool scene, the fact that it's physically impossible is kind of a buzz kill.

    Again, buzzkill here.

    I mean...rot. Humidity. Insect life. The heat of the midday sun.

    I don't think about it a whole lot but when I do I find it hilarious that zombies are considered so unstoppable when the environment would do a fairly good job of containing and eliminating them.

    Not exactly but in a pinch I can think of a way to design one. The hard part would be finding tanks of pressurized gas.

    I think you're vastly underestimating how easy it would be to be this resourceful. Also, if we have a zombie apocalypse we're not going to have an internet - let alone people designing apps for our iphones. You seem to be thinking of a zombie apocalypse as being some sort of minor inconvenience.

    There's an artist called Ant Lucia who is really good in an Adam Hughes meets 40's pin-up style, so much that he's done a lot of the DC Bombshells covers and designs. He also has branched into some other retro style artwork but I got two of his prints at the comic shop the other day, and they're just the best and full of life and style:

    O2PbWAU.jpg

    Really good and nice for framing, the only thing I wish is they would be printed bigger than 16 x 20.

    This is Kevin Maguire's cover for the upcoming JLI Omnibus vol. 1 (which has something like 50 issues in it), the way it goes from the core team to the JLE team and then the villains is such a nice way to show the team radiate through it's whole run:

    I got my dad's collection when he died and let me tell you it's the least convenient inheritence in the world, but it is a nice excuse to go back through taking photos of a bunch of comics we read together before I sell them because I don't need 20,000 physical comics taking up like a shipping container wherever I go.

    He swore he was going to get around to arranging and CGCing and starting to sell them but...

    Also I now have thousands of photos of old comic covers and they're universally amazing. I love the ones that are the first appearance of a villain no one cares about, because they're equally as bombastic as like the first appearance of Galactus.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.
