Moments of the Week for 09/26/07

edited October 2007 in Graphic Violence
Man, why hasn't anyone made this thread yet? Anyway, this week was phenomenal.

Iron Fist - his entire fight with the sumo dude. Actually, let's just say the whole damn issue.

Iron Fist Annual - the whole damn issue

X-Men - the whole Beast vs. Dark Beast fight in the Endangered Species bit.

When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Iron Fist
    Bring me my victory wenches!

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Haha, yeah. I randomly chose to read the regular issue before the Annual, and luckily this is the correct order. The annual was just awesome, though. Orson's adventures were so old school pulp fiction. Also, the last non-Chaykin section was drawn by Jelena Djudjevic, and it was the best art in the entire issue. She and Marko need more interior work.

    My shop sold out of Iron Fist before I got there, but they had like ten of the annuals. I mean, on one hand, I'm glad it's selling well, but on the other hand, you know, I'd like to read it.

    Let's just say that things in the issue did not progress in a way I would have predicted.

    Also: the shit is getting complicated. "Some questions answered, more raised" type deal. Stuff. Going down.

    Any part of the Iron Fist issue with Chaykin art was eye rape.

    Allstar Batman is the most hilarious comic ever. And batman was just fucking awesome

    Yeah, I picked up the last three issues of Batman. Awesomesauce.

    At least Chaykin didn't do the whole book. Or the cool parts. Is what I kept telling myself.

    Countdown got a few moments for me this week.
    Todd: "youre nothing but a second rate Batman." "No, you are!" as Todd gets owned. It's funny because its true.

    Then shortly after when the Society shows up, "Someone just hit me with a crowbar already". Again, funny because its true.

    Teen Titans 51
    The end cliffhanger, while obviously not going to happen next issue, was still pretty cool. The Prometheus fight was pretty good too. And Rose wondering if she should be happy or upset that Conner tortures her father in the future was funny stuff.

    Starlord 3
    Groot was awesome. Love the role reversal for him and Rocket and spitting on him was funny as hell.

    The Gabe image at the end reminds me of Wolverine in the sewers during the Hellfire Club stuff way back in Uncanny X-Men. The whole bloodied and beaten and the only hope for the rest of the team. Very cool stuff.

    Immortal Iron Fist 9 & Annual
    "Bring me my wenches"! And "Sweet fucking Christmas it's cold"!

    Immortal Iron Fist Annual was a whole lot of eye rape. It was a good, fun tale about Orson's past but I dont see why this story was so important that Danny had to lose the first round and travel back to Earth and go to France. Nothing major was revealed. I think it would have been better to stay and just learn more from the Book of Iron Fist than find out his father got his money from Orson. Did I miss some major reveal here? Did Orson's daughter just want him to go get more information on the father she never knew or something? I hope Fraction and Bru do more with this next issue of the main series to make this so important he had to leave the tournament.

    Ill see if I can upload some scans later if people are interested.

    Because hey fuck mainstream DC, which I consider series starring mainstream characters.
    "Man let's do this event because shit's confusing. Man that made it more confusing, let's try to fix it. Oh fuck now we need to do another one after we jump all our storylines ahead a year and do 2 weekly series."

    Also I'm just not a big fan of DC for the most part.

    To be fair, it's generally true that you can't say anything around here that amounts to "I don't really like to read DC" without someone getting on your case about it. I mean, Lol!'s situation is more or less true for me (because I'm far more invested in Marvel than DC), but I don't remind people of it. At any rate, Lol! shouldn't make a point of reminding us of his bias against DC and Keith shouldn't have a knee-jerk reaction to everyone who says they don't like/are biased against DC. At least not in a thread about moments of the week.

    I've said it before. As long as Frank Miller only writes HIS OWN characters, I'm fine with him.

    The second he writes someone else, he's worthless.
    "i want to read that but i have a policy that says "DON'T READ THINGS YOU WANT"
    I gotta agree with Keith. If I ever see someone in a Moment of the Week thread tell me how awesome a comic I don't read was that week, I tend to pick it up, regardless of who is in it, etc.


    Unless it's Countdown.

    And Mask: It's more that he's bitching about how he wants to read it, but has a policy not to.
    We're not gonna fucking arrest you because you picked up Allstar Batman and Robin and you have a policy not to.
