I’ve spoken before about my strange love/hate relationship with X-Men #1, but with the first arc getting Marvel’s Premiere Hardcover treatment this week, today provided me with a good opportunity to unearth the ten goofiest panels of “Mutant Genesis!”
If you like exposition, shoulderpads, tiny pant legs and increasingly improbable skin colors, you’re gonna love this one.
So I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World while I was out in San Diego, and because this is a thing that a lot of people seem pretty interested in, I’ve written up ten thoughts on the movie.
I am pretty sure I stayed away from spoilers, but if you want to go in completely fresh, here’s the gist: I liked it a lot.
As you can see from the picture above, I spent the weekend at San Diego’s Comic-Con International, and wasn’t able to record War Rocket Ajax this week. But! A War Rocket Ajax without Chris Sims is still the world’s most destructive comics and pop culture podcast, and this time around our pal Matt Wilson sits in for me to talk about comics, bagels, neck tattoos and other assorted dreams.
Plus, Euge cut in two short voicemails I left him from the con in an exhausted and slightly inebriated state. Just so you know, the “Caitlin” and “Richelle” that are mentioned are novelists Caitlin Kittredge and Richelle Mead, two online pals that I met for the first time out West.
They, like everyone else I met out there, were super-nice and totally cool, but I’m sure I’ll get into it next time.
Jimmy Olsen heads to San Diego and… maybe it’s for the best that this one didn’t come out.
Yes, much like Batman and Richard Dragon: Kung Fu Fighter, I’m headed out to the San Diego Comic-Con, where I’ll be part of the team covering it for ComicsAlliance! By which I mean I’m going to San Diego, not that Batman and Richard Dragon are part of the CA team. It’d be pretty awesome if they were, though.
If you’re out there, find me and say hi, and if you’re not… well, you can say hi too, but I probably won’t hear it.
