I loved this week's Deadpool. Such a great start to the crossover story with plenty good jokes and an actual good reason for the fighting. Steve with the Ark of the Covenant and Mister Sinister getting a group text with a bunch of heroes numbers in it was good stuff.

It's Chuck Dixon on a Bat character. Why wouldn't anyone be hyped?

Looking forward to the Image comics panel today, should be fun. Will be late UK time but should be able to follow it before I crash out. Is the DC rebirth panel today as well?

It's all on the ECCC website. Image is 4:15 pst, DC is the hour before that. No idea about all the others but they're up there. You're Europe right, so that'll be an hour after me. 12ish tonight for DC for you then, 1am for Image.

Unless I fucked all that up.

I just had a revelation last night in the wee hours of the morning while unable to sleep.

What if the mysterious Clark Kent impostor isn't any of the suspects put out by DC, or Superboy Prime.

But is in fact the Pre-Crisis Golden Age Superman
This would make some sort of twisted sense with the way other Clark has been acting.

The reviews for Zelda are insane with multiple reviewers calling it the best game of all time. One more sleep until I can finally play it.

The latest issue of shutter wasn't great, but on whole the last arc hasn't been so bad, its the same as shutters always been which is pretty much scattershot fast forward sci fi. They've never really had much character development or really tend to do pay off for story build ups, but they make up for it in crazyness, unexpected twists and great art. The story pretty much turns on a dime from issue to issue so I wasn't surprised when after all the build up it switched from a prospero to a cassius story. Plus lets face it cassius is the best character ha

Image Comics Announcements

Mar 02, 2017, 4:15 PM - 6:15 PM

Image Comics is bringing the Future of Comics to Emerald City Comicon in 2017 with this special two-hour presentation. Featuring a keynote speech by publisher Eric Stephenson about the past, present, and future of comics and a full slate of brand-new series to be announced, this panel is sure to set the tone for the year and give you plenty of great comics to look forward to reading.

This is the one I assume that there will be new things at, but you're right, there are a few going on over the next few days. Even a panel dedicated entirely to Rob Liefeld.

Zelda reviews look fucking incredible, nevermind the game.

I was wondering what was going on with Reborn after Bloodshot USA. Exciting stuff. Lemire's Bloodshot is the best thing he's ever written, and one of the best books on the shelves.

Just read the second volume the other day, it's great! First few issues were fine, it kind of felt like it was just acting out its premise in a quite basic way but now that it's got running and the characters have had time to flesh out and he's built the world out with all sorts of weird and wonderful groups of people, it's great stuff.

Also. Driller is a real killer.

I think at this point the only active creator owned thing by him I haven't had a look in at is Black Hammer, hopefully that hits trade soon.

I'm so confused by that whole thing. Whey were they so concerned with people licking it that they coated it in something bitter?

And am I the only person that liked America 1? It was perfect but I liked the set up. And I love a good map.

Also finished the first volume of My Hero Academia. My god those costume designs. So over the top. So good.

What I really like about the class's costumes is that other than maybe Iida (and maybe Yaoyorozo) they totally look like something a high-school kid would design, lol. Bakugou's especially.

They are tiny and Nintendo is making sure kids don't eat them.

Apparently so. It didn't feel like the America I know.

My Hero Academia is grossly underrated. It should be hitting Naruto level fan levels though One Piece is still the best of all time.

I've never put one in my mouth, as far as I remember, but did they do the same thing with DS cartridges?

Or are the Switch ones just much smaller?

That predates my LoSH knowledge, if GrandHarrier were still around he'd be able to tell you.

My go to Legion recommendations are:

The Great Darkness Saga
The Curse
Legion Lost (DnA/Coipel, not N52)
Legion of 3 Worlds

That picks up where the old Legion Archives (volume 13 HC specifically) collections left off so not sure how good a starting point that would be.

This starts at the beginning of it all and seems to collect the same material as the first few Archives collections so would probably be a good place to start. Disclaimer: I haven't read the material myself.

I started with the Legion of 3 Worlds miniseries and then went onto what is referred to as volume 3 of the LoSH which ran for 63 issues.
