@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

Anybody been reading any of Rebirth? I've been loving Green Arrow and New Super-Man, even if the art in the latter is a bit shonky at times. Doom Patrol is exactly the right level of weird, too, as is Shade the Changing Girl.

 

Generally the line as a whole looks promising; it feels like it's got a solid direction in a way that neither DC nor Marvel have had in recent years. Hopefully Marvel takes a few lessons from this, and hopefully they're the right ones (i.e. not "drop all diversity and tell the same stories over again").

 

Blue Beetle and Detective Comics - well, the entire Batman line, really - have been disappointing, though, which is a shame; those were the two books I was most interested in.

It will be a long time before I go back to a standard DCU book, but Young Animal is off to a great start. I think this looks to be the perfect Doom Patrol book (something many of us have been waiting a looooong time for!). Haven't checked out Shade but the first issue of Cave Carson was good too. Wonder Twins by Scioli is about the greatest thing I can imagine.

So, Wednesday's issue of the Flash (with classic Wally and kid Wally meeting) was actually great, and really heartwarming; huge step up from the boring Zolomon retread it had been previously. Here's hoping this is actually permanent improvement, and not just a weirdly good one-off like that Nova issue with the Captain.

 

I'm kind of feeling lukewarm on Rebirth as a whole, though; while it's good that pretty much all the books are okay to great, I'm really missing the weirder, more fringe-y titles from the New 52 and DC You. There's a reason that most of what I'm getting from DC is Young Animal, Flintstones, and the guilty pleasure of Sixpack and Dogwelder. The weirdest thing that "main" DC is doing is New Super-Man.

Oh, absolutely. Honestly, the Chinese Trinity are some of my favourite characters in comics recently.

The FFoC have really cool designs, too, and I like that Folding Paper Man doubles as their Doll Man and Plastic Man.

So, hey, other than that... other thing... that happened today, there were also comics.

 

Mother Panic! ...I wasn't feeling it. It was just a kind of underwhelming mix-up of Batman and Punisher. Great art, but I don't think I'll be following this one.

 

Doom Patrol, meanwhile, is going from strength to strength. I think this is gonna be one of my comics of the year. That "Danny Comics" interlude? MAN.

Spoiler

 

New Super-Man is still the best of the Rebirth titles. You really get the feeling that Baixi was waiting for a while to use the "I'm Bat-Man" phrase.

loved doom patrol..its just...the right kind of weird and fun. Also, notice that Flex is the only non-danny based comic in the store.

 

Mother Panic was good too...i like the story so far, but i hate the art. Like Nghthawk over at marvel, its just not my kind of art. The Gotham Radio backup was fun, but all I could think about while reading it was "look at that Robin costume...where and when does this take place?"...because that was clearly a Pre-flashpoint original Robin suit.

Priest?! Priest is writing Deathstroke?!

Checked out the first issue because man, that dude can write. Don't give a crap about Deathstroke, but for Priest I'm there. It didn't blow me away but it was solid and I'll probably give it another issue or two at least.

I'm not sure I'd be confident in recommending it after just the initial oneshot, but it's Priest, so I'm fairly happy to assume that once it gets going it has a good chance of being literally the best book DC is publishing.

But I'm with you. I mean... Deathstroke. Of course, I used to feel the same way about Black Panther and Priest pushed him into my top 5 favourite Marvel characters. So.

Man, today's New Super-Man absolutely pulls out all the stops. Character development for Kenan? Correlating his powers - and the S-shape on his chest - with the bagua trigrams? And most of all...

Spoiler

If you read one DC comic, it's got to be this one, because wow.

 

(Also, the new "villain" Alpaca is apparently based on the "Grass Mud Horse" meme, which is pretty great.)

decided to try JLA Rebirth because *Real* Lobo (aka the non-Twilight-Sissy-Faux-Bo) is in it, and he's luckily sufficiently Main-Man-Like for the moment.

Could have used more "Feetal's Gizz!" shouts though. But it's good to have the Main Man back.
With many thanks to Alex Milne for the new Dragnet Avatar!

I've only checked out Titans mainly and the first few issues of Superwoman. The bait and switch on the Superwoman book didn't sit well with meand I dropped it after issue 2. Titans has me with my fondness for the characters from the tv series and the fact that the Wally I know is one of the members plus the whole mystery of the Watchmen thing going on. Though not much has happened on the latter part. But my first three DC comics were parts 1,2,and 4 of Wally's "Year One" story in the Ninety's. Wally has always been my favorite DC hero since.

 

 

And while it is part of the Rebirth but I really don't consider Batman Beyond as part of it. Sadly even though I'm glad Terry's back I really don't like the post apocalyptic future Gotham being the last bastion of humanity angle they have had since beginning Tim's tenure as the Bat of Tomorrow. And the latest issues new suit has me really hoping it doesn't last long. Adding more red lines doesn't make it look any cooler.

 

Oh and I think I checked out the first Superman issue with Damien trying to take on Jon Kent. That was just out of curiosity.

All I want in life is a "Lobo vs Lobo" miniseries where classic Lobo and New52 Lobo (played as a parody of anime bishonen heroes) repeatedly murder each other in hilarious ways.

Lobo, proper Lobo, good Lobo, is one of those things... I shouldn't like him, but he's just too gosh darn loveable. Doing right by Lobo should absolutely be a priority for DC in this Deadpool-obsessed world.

So after significant delays, Doom Patrol is on an axey hiatus for a while after issue six (which hits April 29 but was due in Feb). Apparently 7-9 will be resolicited at some point in the future, but we'll see.
