    Like I appreciate the idea of this giant special issue with art from Bruce Timm and Skottie Young and JG Jones and everyone in between but it was just really poorly paced and the tone shifts wildly and it ends by taking a giant dump on one of my favorite characters so

    not a big fan

    Does rape even happen in normal comics anymore

    Like the only time I hear about it anymore is in shitty fringe comics trying to be edgy

    I think 2 or 3 female heroes in DC New 52 have a rape in their backstory
    shitty fringe comics trying to be edgy

    You should spoiler that, since it is kind of a reveal

    jesus you guys, they're just capital letters

    like, not to be glib but you're saying he's worse than a character that rapes and murders

    That's skippable

    The only way to skip FCH's shtick is to not read it

    Or buy his book, which comes with both a Hulk (all caps) and a Banner (normal capitalisation) version.

    I want to like RLM so badly but I really fucking hate the in-character stuff they do

    I have this weird thing with Plinkett

    I think the voice is actually pretty funny, and a lot of the ticks of the character are great (not quite finishing a sentence before moving on, etc) but the serial killer part is suuuuch a drag it pulls me out

    I was just clued in to the fact that this word is "tics"

    I have been doing this for 15 years

    yaaay

    With team leader Amanda Waller no longer having the autonomy she used to and new members causing all sorts of problems, the team will have an awfully hard time on their first mission: a trip to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

    I'm kind of undecided on the new Iron Fist book.
    On one hand, ugh let's retell the origin yet again. On the other hand, fighting undead ninjas off a skyscraper. On the other other hand, Danny is one trip to Hot Topic before going full emo. On the other other other hand, Danny punched a helicopter to death.

    And on the other other other other hand why the fuck do I have so many hands?!

    I'm probably gonna follow the first arc at least but I wasn't entirely wowed by it.

    Secret Avengers was pretty fun, Avengers Undercover is getting interesting as well.

    It's so weird that while Marvel is killing it both in the movie box offices but also on TV and in the comics, DC's best thing going right now is a fucking CW show about the Green Arrow.

    I initially read "autonomy" as "anatomy" and it should probably say something that I was not surprised that was a thing that DC would be doing.
    By which I mean I imagined something violent and horrible happening to her because DC.

    I wonder if they care about the ratings for AoS

    I was reading something about how Cosmos's ratings are abysmal but they don't care because the targeted audience isn't going to watch it on tv on airing anyway

    And that describes people who'd be into a comics show to a T

    It had a huge spike on social media apparently, up like 150% or something. I wonder what time shifted views are like. I'm a pretty rabid fan and I wait an hour to skip commercials.

    Even, like, Iron Man 2's, which I think is wholly unremarkable

    Shit, I have two copies of phase one thanks to that giant-ass collection. I'll probably wind up with two copies of Phase 2 as well, if they do another phase collectors set.

    I don't yet!

    It's just Fury's Big Week and a couple of Iron Man tie-ins, right?

    Edit: Although I do also need a few of the Blu-rays, specifically Captain America, Incredible Hulk, and Thor 2

    -Black Widow Strikes (?) (Contains a 3 issue miniseries)
    -Fury's Big Week (contains an 8 issue miniseries)

    -After that, Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Cap 2 and GotG all have gotten (or are getting) books that typically contain a comicization of the previous movie, a two issue prequel miniseries for the upcoming movie and occasionally some random 616 issues that show off important character introductions or whatever.

    Oh, that's...

    On that note, do you know if any of these are collected together, or would I have to track down individual issues?
