Couple more days.  I can't wait til I step inside on preview nite.  See you all there.

I'll be there.  It'll be my first trip to SDCC.

I'll be checking them all out.  I'm curious to see how they'll handle them period, but also in the scope of the reboot.

I've said the same thing about titles led by Black characters, they aren't supported enough by the companies.  Look at all the effort that goes into other titles and films, they don't do the same for Black characters.

Too many times, when a character is shown to be a lesbian, it's more for spectacle and doesn't always show the depth of a character.  Sometimes it's been like ooh a lesbian and it doesn't enhance stories or characters.

It sucks, and it is only further injuring an already hurting industry.  I have and will always prefer physical copies of my comics.  There's nothing like picking the comics off the shelf, or getting them out of your pullbox lol.  I never even purchased a trade until less than 2 years ago.  I have since bought several for questionable titles and if I really like them, I back-issue hunt them such as what I've been doing with Umbrella Academy and what I will be doing with Y: The Last Man.  That doesn't really matter so much for new comics.  
 
But really, this is only one of the many problems with the industry.  There should be a round-table discussion or something featuring people with genuine interest and love for comics.  They should look at comics purely as a medium and not in the sense of this as a business, layout the problems and brainstorm potential solutions.

I have this for SNES.  Every time I play it and fight the giant robot, I'm always like man, that's a damn Sentinel.

Thanks.  Yeah, I'd heard good things about it and I like some other stuff Van Lente has written.  I just need to order the first issue.

Racism is still prevalent in the real world and in comics.  Comics hold poor representations of people of color.  It's kinda hard being a fanboy of color with so many characters that look like me having terrible backgrounds.  Why are so many Black characters former criminals?  Why are most, or all as far as I know, Native American Indian characters all great trackers?  How many Asian characters know martial arts?  I am working on personal projects, all of which will star strong characters of color?  I love comics, but there are so many problems.

Without comics, I'd still read novels and other books as I already do.  I would have more time for video games.  I split time between games and comics.  As for not having things created without imagination, there wouldn't be much.  Not sure what would really exist to tell you the truth.
