You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2017 - 11:52 AM)

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

The beauty of this set up is they can "secret wars" anyone back whenever they want, for years to come. Need 616 Wolverine back? Oh he showed up in battlworld but Doom, or Magneeto or someone captured him and put him in stasis, and he just now escaped.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Squadron Supreme is happening! We've got Dr. Spectrum from the Great Society, Supreme Power's Nighthawk, New Universe's Blur, Thundra, and Hickman's Hyperion.

 

There's a character I don't recognize offhand but it could be Sif?

 

EDIT: It could be Battleworld Zarda. Hmm.

The post-SW Hulk has been...well, not revealed, but guessed, with a pretty high probability of accuracy. I suppose it was sort of obvious once you know Greg Pak is writing it, but I didn't find that out till just now.

 

It's a shame, as I was really enjoying Gerry Duggan's "Doc Green" angle, and Waid's series before that. Pak's work is wildly uneven, and his previous Hulk run is a perfect example of that. "Planet Hulk" was great, but the stuff after he left the planet was pretty dire.

I love Amadeus Cho.  He's one of my favorite Marvel characters.  I really, really, don't want to read Totally Awesome Hulk Cho.  Prince of Power was already pushing it, and I was enjoying the Doc Green take.

 

I'm weird with Pak's Hulk though.  My favorite stuff was the bit with Olivetti exploring Banner as the danger kept in check by Hulk.

On the heels of the Ant-Man series ending due to Secret Wars shenanigans, the relaunch was inevitable given the movie coming out.

 

http://www.latimes.c...0625-story.html

 

Nick Spencer will continue his run with Scott Lang's company expanding from just him and Grizzly to Porcupine, the female Beetle from Spencer's spectacular Superior Foes of Spider-Man, and WHIRLWIND.

 

It sounds great so far and I love Superior Foes so Beetle joining is so awesome.

Good to know that Ant-Man will have a soft reboot, keeping the same overall feel. Love the current run, and I'm liking more and more the independent B-Lister comics like this, Silver Surfer, Hawkeye, and Z-Lister in Howard the Duck's case. They don't run necessarily concurrent with the main Universe, but they're still considered part of it. In a "don't think too hard" way.

What exactly is going on with Venom?

The writing isn't always what I want, but I feel like whoever has been deciding what to do with Venom is sharing brain space with me or something.

 

Venom(No host given, but probably Flash?) having Spaceknight-related adventures? Where do I sign up?

Now, if only they could remember Mania existed.(Please don't kill her so Eddie can also be Venom.)

The image is from Guardians of The Galaxy. I liked his stint with the Guardians, and it's an overall interesting concept to have the Symbiote back in space. Maybe some old foes/allies we didn't know existed showing up? Giving him his own story, far away from Spider-Man really expands the character in my opinion.


Yep.

Having a solo title makes me hope they take some time to explore the symbiote-host relationship some more.

I really liked stuff from the end of the last Venom solo series and the issues of Superior Spider-man he showed up in.

 

It looks like it is being written by the guy writing Silk. Which I haven't read yet, but I've heard good things about, so that gives me some hope.

 

 

Definitely looks like Flash-Venom to me in that pic.

Yeah, sorry, probably should have pointed out that the article is using old art.

I was kind of let down by his time with the Guardians so far. I haven't read every issue, but it felt like for most of it he was either absent or incredibly inconsequential. Except for his introduction, and the planet of the symbiotes arc.

 

I thought he was handled better in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts, and I wasn't a huge fan of that book.

WARREN ELLIS IS WRITING A KARNAK BOOK.

 

I'm sold.

 

More X-Men stuff with All-New X-Men continuing sans Jean but plus one VW Camper van.

 

Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos with Extraordinary X-Men with Old Man Logan, Young Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Magik and Iceman. This gives me 90's X-Men Gold Team flashbacks with most of the members.

 

Cullen Bunn and...ugh...Greg Land relaunch Uncanny X-Men with Magneto, Sabretooth, Psylocke, Mystique and Fantomex. Looks like Uncanny will be our new X-Force.

 

Uncanny Avengers (by Gerry Dugan and Ryan Stegman) on the other hand adds Inhumans to the team. We get Old Man Steve Rogers, Human Torch, Rogue, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Quicksilver, Doctor Voodoo and most likely a couple Inhumans.
