  1. I've always been a huge fan of this long running web comic even if I don't get all the most scienc-y jokes. It's amazing what stick figures can do to communicate tone and ideas and emotion with the right context. Today I want to start off the discussion by posting two recent strips that really tickled me. #2341: (https://xkcd.com/2341/) and #2360 (https://xkcd.com/2360/) To me these are quintessential XKCD. They use a quasi textbook graphic presentation with the star chart and the comp

  3. Used to play cricket a lot, but stopped once my eyes got bad. I tried my had at hurling when I visited Ireland. Seemed like a fun game but it really demands depth perception since you make a lot of baseball style shots and being blind in one eye, that's tough for me. Strangely, I've started to get into sports shooting this year despite having bad eyes. Steel Challenge and USPSA stuff. Shooting is a very 2D sport in many respects, so doesn't demand as much from the eyes as you might think and the rest is running around and body positioning, I'm really glad I fou
  4. Glad to hear people like the show. I'll check it out. I like the first comic series a lot, though I never read Dallas.
  5. Did he say the FF was coming though? I mean, if he's claiming there was a five year plan in place before the merger, I don't think FF would have been in it either. Or Doom. I do think the Celestials are the next big thing. They did give us Knowhere, so that's set up in the universe. Re: the Chinese market holding back the portrayal of gay characters, is it an issue of the govt not allowing such portrayals or audiences being turned off by them? Cuz one is more of an obstacle than the other.
  6. I'm usually a stickler for consistent worldbuilding where even if things are surreal, I understand why it's surreal. But this movie's logic issues didn't bother me as much as it seemed to bother others with it's lack of clear cause and effect. The performances, action and sense of connection to the characters powers you through that. It helps that almost all the character stuff is in the first half and the worldbuilding cracks don't become apparent til the last 1/4, so by then you're invested. And I think it also helped that the action across the movie was surpr
  7. I'm seeing a big block of grey for the hollabox with the text, 'Invalid Host Header'.
  8. Yeah, I had the same reaction. And this is a symptom of my overall dissatisfaction with the show They seemed set to tell a story about a character who just happens to share the name and get him wallowing in angst that isn't very Iron Fist-y. You have a problem with CW-level fight scenes, but my big problem is the CW school of drama-creation and characterization that they seem to be following since Season 1. They could have done the inverse of what the trailer did and used this as a moment of pride. And then whatever drama they were trying for, whether it was him saying he
  9. I was never a fan of old man logan as a regular series. The orifinal story really seemed like the kind of thing that needed to be left alone so it could be a self-contained story. I never even checked it out, though I heard the old wolverine showed up in the comics present... tl;dr on that?
  10. Haven't read Death of Wolverine. Anyone have a tl:dr?
  11. A review of two books that bump into each other at the intersection of tween lit, graphic novels and politics. Both released in 2012, 'Drama' and 'Cardboard' seem to stand almost as relics of their time now, a mere 6 years later. Their politics seem so retro given the current topics and confrontational tactics dominating US public debate. One book is a gentle tale of group dynamics & sorting through relationship perils when they're all new to you by using empathy and consideration while the other book is heavy on physical conflict while espousing the values o
  12. Rom, Spaceknight was one of my favorites as a kid. My introduction to the New Mutants was as guest stars in an issue of his comic. I read that thing about 100 times. The way the Limbo from his world connected with sword-wielding Illyana (an X-man) being queen of Limbo at the time blew my mind. I would indeed love to see more Rom in Marvel. Or just more Rom as it's own thing.
  13. I don't think we ought to worry about the renumeration issue. It's part of the self-policing mechanism to control quality now that the entry barriers to art production are so low. I deal with the same issue as an indie novelist. Because of things like Amazon self-publishing and soundcloud and cheap digital movie cameras etc, people who want to put art out there can do so. And a lot of it is crap. The gatekeepers are fading away and nothing is restraining the influx of enthusiastic but substandard producers, certainly not their lack of talent. That sounds harsh, but
