Finally got the first two Arkham games.

I know I'm a little late to the party, but just yesterday I upgraded from the old playstation 2 to the newer playstation 3 along with a great bundle deal with a few games - including Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

Anyway, stayed up till about 3:00 pm playing Arkham Asylum. Time flies when you're having fun, right? I got to the Scarecrow level before I finally peeled myself away from the screen and got some sleep. Anyway, it's really fun. It's one of the best console games, and I've played quite a few. On the off chance that somebody reads this and hasn't played Arkham Asylum, I cannot recommend it enough. Awesome game.

Image Comics!

So today I got my first ever Image comic/trade from Amazon - Five Ghosts: The Haunting of Fabian Gray. The concept sounded very interesting to me and the reviews I read where pretty positive in general. If I like it enough I'll keep getting the series from my LCS.

Art looks really good, too.

Uh, that's it I guess... Yeah....

Hey, look - Motion Comics! :D

So, a few days ago I got a PM from a user ( @rincewind86 ) on this site asking me to give him some feedback on his motion comics.

He does this as a hobby, but his work is still really good. I also admire his dedication, because it can take months to put even one of these comics to motion. The thing is, he can't seem to get his work noticed, which is unfortunate considering how much effort goes into them. So I thought I'd help him out a bit and make this blog.

If you would head over to his Youtube channel, and help get his work out there by sharing a few of his videos I would appreciate, and I'm sure he would as well.

Thanks for reading. :)

Hey, Viners! Great news! I bought my first DC comic today!

So I started really getting into comics after the Marvel NOW! reboot (or whatever you want to call it), and I had thought of spreading my wings a little and start getting Batman. At first I was discouraged because every title was already on issue 16, and I felt like I'd have no idea what was going on, and I'd just be lost and eventually drop it. So I decided to just stick to what i was comfortable with sense I had always been more of a Marvel guy anyway... But as i started getting more, and more Marvel comics i started to become more, and more bold. First I started getting different Marvel NOW! titles, and that satisfied me for a few months. But soon that wasn't enough. I wanted to start branching out even more! I really wanted to dive head first into this whole comicbook thing. So.... Today I decided to do something radical, something I'd never done sense i started buying comics. Get a New 52 title! A friend of mine recommended Aquaman, and sense I've always liked the more obscure characters I decided to pick up Aquaman #18.

It was great! There where a few things I didn't understand, and a few characters that I had now idea who they where, but all-in-all I really liked it. The art was great, the writing even more so. And I'm proud to say: I am defiantly adding this to my pull-list! It got me really exited start buying more DC stuff! which brings me to the real point of this blog post. I was wondering if anyone else that reads DC comics would be able to give me some suggestions on some more great New 52 titles who's story arcs might be coming to a close soon that I could jump right into and start getting on my next comic shop raid!

Thanks for reading.

Weird comicbook questions: What does "Pre-Crisis" mean?

Hey, fellow viners. I had a somewhat weird comicbook related question.

On the battle forums and whatnot I see things like: Pre-crisis Superman vs such and such character..

I know it has something to do with DC..But sense I've always been more of a Marvel guy this kinda confuses me.

If some one would be so kind as to answer me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.
