Real Life Crazy Comic Talk
#1: Blackest Night: Without a doubt, the biggest event in Green Lantern history, in which, the first issue actually lives up to the hype, is the most talked about topic at the store. Through the waves of giggling and clapping like five year olds, there is actually moderately serious conversation happening. The main thing is “who is going to be a Black Lantern, and how awesome would it be? (insert giggling)”
Craziest theory: Alan Scott becomes an official Corps member and saves everyone with G’Nort.
#2: Who is Red Hulk?: Jeph Loeb’s controversial series is wildly talked about it. You either hate the book and want to light
Craziest/Dumbest Theory: A regular customer truly believes that Red Hulk is actually a piece of Bruce Banner’s psyche which manifested itself into the real world. If this is true, I’m going to post a video of myself crying.
Craziest Theory: All right, so this one is actually mine and involves a lot of DW knowledge to understand. First part is easy to understand, I believe he’s the 12 doctor, not the 11. Reason: If they ever wanted to do a Time War mini-series, they’d need an actor and I don’t think Eccelson or McGaan will come back to do it. 2 crazy theory: Matt Smith is actually the final doctor resurrection, and this ties into Colin Baker’s era. In the “Trial of the Time Lord”, the Doctor is put on “trial” by himself in his final resurrection in order to prolong the future doctor’s life by stealing Colin Baker’s remaining resurrections. Confusing? A little, especially when I try and describe it. Matt Smith does mildly resemble a younger version of that evil incarnation of the Doctor, and I personally think it would be an awesome way to tie in the old series. Probably won’t happen though.
Why bother typing this all up? Well, there’s something about the comic book store that brings out the paranoid conspiracy theorist in a person that you won’t always see online. If one were to write these ridiculous things online, there’s always that fear of an angry troll jumping down your throat and calling you “DA n00b” or whatever the online diss term is that week. This is why crazy talk is still welcomed at in the comic book store world. They laugh with us, not at us. Or maybe they laugh at us when they get into the car and drive away, at least I can’t see/hear it then.
I would like to make this an open forum for anyone who has a way over-the-top theory about any book. Feel free to post your craziness without the threat of being called some silly acronym in which you need some sort of online dictionary to figure out you were called “The Biggest Moron Of All Time, Yes Bigger Than Kevin Federline” (TGMOATYBTKF I just made that up, thanks). Embrace your crazy theories… We’re laughing with you, not at you.
