    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    I've been trying to move away from Physical books, but I love the ritual of it. My house is full of crap already though.

    Perfect match, IMO

    New Star Soccer 5 (PC/Mac/iOS/Android/Flash)

    A big chunk of the bad feeling could have been avoided with NSS5 if the publisher had brought the consumable IAP version to market as a new entry on the App Store / Play Store, and just removed the original version from sale for new purchases (leaving existing purchasers able to download). But I guess they wouldn't want to lose all those juicy download stats. I literally came back to the game one day to find it had totally changed and the only way I could play it was to keep paying real money for energy drinks and boots. No warning, no opt-out. Unforgivable. Yes, a publisher took the game on, but it's still Si's game, right? He has to bear some of the responsibility.

    I paid £30 and I'm absolutely loving it. Excellent game. Does anyone know what happened to Gunbird 2? It was definitely there the other week, but no sign now.

    That Miller piece is really odd. Just as it's getting interesting they just switch to Adams, who - after reading his latest Deadman mini - I wouldn't treat as particularly reliable / coherent these days. Interesting that he implies substance abuse. I was convinced Miller had cancer or something equally serious. If it's the former and he's turning a corner, that makes me really happy. He's got plenty left in him if he can harness it. FWIW I really love his art at the moment. It's so pared down.

    Moore is such a creep. Yuck.
  7. Yes. Less throttle makes it easier to get a bead on enemy planes.

    I fear you're probably right. I absolutely LOVE his recent art. The more extreme and distorted it gets, the more I love it. Did anyone see this as well? He's writing a YA book featuring Carrie Kelley - the Robin of The Dark Knight Returns. https://www.polygon.com/comics/2018/3/23/17157140/frank-miler-carrie-kelley-dc-comics-graphic-novel Ben Caldwell art. Loved his work on Prez.

    I've never been specifically into the Inhumans titles, but loved Black Bolt and the Karnak mini from a couple of years ago. There's plenty of stories I've enjoyed where they've been side players though. The first issue of Lockjaw is really interesting and not what I expected. Looks like they're trying to get Lockjaw together with an ex hero who lost his powers and is living a pretty sorry life. Definitely made me want to get the next issue for sure. On a different tack, these are in the Comixology sale right now and are wonderful. They include probably my favourite single issue in the last decade as well

    Saladin's Black Bolt Vol 1 collection is absolutely excellent. Recommended.
  11. I loved this, although I did want to curl up and evaporate in a cloud of existential angst afterwards. As said earlier - those final 30 minutes or so are absolutely stunning. The score is great throughout but in the final sequence it's just magnificent. And I love that it doesn't explain everything. It leaves us so much to talk about.

    I had a 25 year gap of not buying single issue comics, and I'm a few years back into it now. So I think the novelty hasn't *quite* worn off again yet. Looking at the boxes I've accumulated, it's starting to sour for sure. In every other entertainment medium, I've totally embraced digital. I don't know why I find it so hard for comics. I think I like the ritual of it a bit.

    I can't imagine Squirrel Girl without Erica Henderson art. She's made it her own. I'll pick up anything she works in going forward, no hesitation. Waid Ant-Man works for me. (Also intrigued to see who replaces EH on Squirrel Girl)

    I think I'm going to leave the books I read currently on this list (Hulk and Thor) behind after this reboot, and maybe catch up with them in the future on Marvel unlimited. Hopefully Squirre onl Girl will carry on as it is. Who's the team on Ant-Man? Love the character, but it''s totally going to depend on the team for me.
