• KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Free Comic Book Day 2015 (Avengers) #1. on the Free Comic Book Day 2015 (Avengers) board

    This Avengers team seems very similar to Morrison's Justice League of America team with respect to character archetypes and/or attitudes. Spiderman is the one liner pun comic relief of the team simi...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Preview: SECRET WARS #1. on the Comic Book Preview board

    Why does Marvel have to come out with 10 or 20 different covers for their number one issues? What, is this the 90s? Hopefully this will be better than DC's main Convergence title. Secret Wars: "Th...

    This is how you do a "Free Comic Book Day" comic book right!Make mine Valiant!

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Essential Comics for 4/29/15. on the Gen. Discussion board

    For all of my complaints of the Big 2 with respect to an overabundance of pointless events rehashing old characters in un-original ways (of course there are exceptions for both companies) along with ...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic C2E2 2015: Matt Kindt Joins All-Star Artists for NINJAK: THE SHADOW WARS. on the Comic Book Preview board

    Is it me or does the Barbe's equipment seem pretty similar to Mister Terrific's of DC Comics fame?

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic C2E2 2015: Valiant Announces Bloodsquirt Takes Center Stage in BLOODSHOT REBORN #5. on the Comic Book Preview board

    Bloodshot Reborn's art is what hooked me when I saw the previews. I like how it continues from The Valiant and you can't go wrong with a writer like Lemire. Bloodsquirt is just icing on the cake.

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Preview: SILK #3. on the Comic Book Preview board

    Is it me, or does this art style look similar to the new Batgirl art style? Two words come to mind: Hipster Comics.

    YEAH, I like Star Wars and all, but the Owen and Beru figures are kind of morbid.

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Convergence #2. on the Convergence board

    I skimmed through this at the LCS. It's still a big mess in my opinion. I'm glad I am sitting out on this event. Now that I'm picking up 0 DC comics, it gives me pause as to why should pick up DC ...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle #1. on the Convergence Nightwing/Oracle board

    The story in this one was pretty good and the art was pretty solid. But I don't care about Hawkman and Hawkgirl, especially these versions.

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Convergence: Batgirl #1. on the Convergence Batgirl board

    I wanted to like this issue, but the poor art kind of ruined it for me. The story overall was not bad. But it felt like someone said "wouldn't it be cool to see pre-52 Steph,Cassandra, and Red Robi...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Convergence #1. on the Convergence board

    Where Convergence 0 was a much cleaner story and clearer story (although not really moving the conflict forward other than introducing Telos), #1 was a complete and utter mess.

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Convergence #0. on the Convergence board

    When I went to the LCS today, I was teetering between buying this and not simply because I have been burned in the past by several Big 2 events (Secret Invasion and Age of Ultron, I'm staring dead cen...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Interview: Daniel H. Wilson Talks EARTH 2: SOCIETY and World-Building. on the Earth-2 board

    I miss James Robinson's story lines and takes on the Earth 2 characters. After he left, it felt like the writers and editorial were pushing/forcing these Batman/Superman family analogues down our th...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Detective Comics #40. on the Detective Comics board

    This story for this and the last arc seemed very "meh" to me. Personally I would give this issue two stars only because the art is so darn good. You guys should review Swamp Thing 40 and save your ...

  • KASPERCOLE posted a message in the forum topic Preview: PRINCESS LEIA #1. on the Comic Book Preview board

    I feel like all of this stuff is just Disney's / Marvel's new cash cow preying on our nostalgia. Wake me up when you start telling stories after Episode VI. And really, do we need all of the varian...

    Everybody check out X-O Manowar 34 even if you are not getting Valiant comic books or if you haven't been following the previous arcs. It'll be a thrill ride for sure!
