The things it doesn’t have, like FLASH, a camera, etc…makes we wonder why I would want one over buying a netbook? I’m sure future generations will have more bells and whistles, but for now, I’m glad I’m a late adapter. I think digital comics will read equally fine on netbooks, so I’m in no hurry.
A Watchmen prequel?
Probably blasphemous for me to say it, but I’d be interested in it, if the right creative team were doing it. I respect the hell out of Moore & Gibbons, but the Watchmen series was done as a work for hire project, so it’s fair for DC to explore such a possibility.
Planet Hulk DVD ROCKS!
Way to go Marvel. Each animated DVD has gotten better since the misfires of the Ultimate Avengers ones. Another fantastic animated Hulk story that is totally accessable .
Friday’s Ultimate Justice 2 Hour Smallville Ep?
I can’t wait. The Batman Brave & Bold JSA made me giddy, so seeing the JSA in live action, and written by the sure hand of Geoff Johns makes this the most anticipated tv show for me this season. Even more so than Lost’s return (which was great) .
Ultimate X made a great debut.
and that’s coming from a guy who is not an x-men fan, let alone an Ultimate x-men fan. Loeb & Adams have started a great story.
Has The pendulum swung to far to favor writers over artists, in terms of creative control?
I’ve read and heard a few artists make such a complaint. You’ll hear one in the days ahead on the next WB podcast. Certainly the 90’s had the opposite momentum, which made me drop the hobby for several years. But now that were into the 2nd decade of writers being the controlling voice behind comic book stories, has the artist become a 2nd class citizen?
Despite my access to writers and artists, I can’t say for sure. I can only judge the finished products and it seems that the quality jolt I saw that brought me back to reading comics over 10 years ago is still here.
Listen to the next Word Balloon ep, and see what your POV is.
