@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:48 PM)

*rescue, though

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:47 PM)

Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

@  Robowang : (23 May 2017 - 10:32 AM)

mmm. That's my favorite dish.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 10:06 AM)

Psh. I'm still waiting for Ranma Whole.

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2017 - 05:08 AM)

I'll wait for the sequel series Dragon Whole.

@  Maruten : (23 May 2017 - 04:26 AM)

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

Nah.
It's mediocre, sure, and nowhere near the level of Power Man and Iron Fist or Nighthawk, but it's not BAD. Certainly a lot better than the name suggests.

Also, apparently the author wanted to use American Eagle, but was told to use Red Wolf (because all Natives are the same, I guess?)

im actually really enjoying Occupy Avengers...i like Red Wolf...i like where its going, its also leaps and bounds better than the regular Avengers book.

 

Also, whats wrong with Powerman and Iron Fist? that book is LOADS of fun.

 

and hell pretty much anythin that Marvels got out right now is better that than steaming crap that is Squirrel Girl.

A lot of Marvel's pretty bad right now. Nova's the only thing I'm really digging, plus Hulk, Unworthy Thor, Hydra Cap and Ultimates.

 

I hate to say it, but Marvel needs to reset its slate. Marvel's in a bad state right now of pumping out titles that no one cares about and pushing certain titles that under-perform badly. And the reports of them overshipping comics is quite bad. My local store is giving overshipped comics away now.

Squirrel Girl is absolutely at the top of the "best things Marvel has published in decades" list.

Occupy Avengers just bored me in concept. Not what I'm interested in Super Hero comic wise. But I've honestly heard mostly good things from others folks after the first couple issues at least.

i hated the Batgirl revamp too, but I oddly love Hellcat. Ms Marvel and Gwenpool are at the top of my fave female led books...Squirrel Girl just doesn't work for me, I hate the tiny text thing, I dunno, its just not a book that's written for me...and that's ok...the best part of comics is being able to find books that speak to you and enjoy them.

I've said it before, but I can't enjoy USG. The art is... well, it's bad; character's faces are grotesquely distorted in a way that doesn't line up with their intended expressions, there are irritating proportion errors, and the backgrounds and colours tend to be sparse and ugly. There was a fill-in artist a few months back who was mimicking Henderson's style but without the face or anatomy issues and it made it so much more readable.
As for the writing, every character just feels like "Ryan North dressed as [character]". They don't have their own voices. Plus, I don't feel like the college setting is a good fit for what I want out of Squirrel Girl.
That said: I do really like North's characterisation of Doreen, and it works really well when she's in stuff like New Avengers. Also I like Nancy.

I love Ryan North, and I have loved Squirrel Girl for many years, but yeah, at launch the book wasn't doing it for me. And despite Marvel trying to push her pretty hard I haven't been compelled to go back.

Gwenpool... that's a book explicitly designed to piss a lot of people off. The whole concept must be pretty irritating... to readers who are boring losers. Because oh my god, what a book. First Gwenpool appearance I read blew my mind, I had no idea what her deal was and was not prepared for it. I assumed she was just a Deadpool/Gwen Stacy mashup taking the piss out of Spider-Gwen but that doesn't scratch the surface. So funny, so much fun.

Occupy Avengers seems a lot subtler about grappling with "real world" issues than Champions does at least.  Too bad Hawkeye's gotten all murder-y of late...him and Red Wolf do give off a whole "Lone Ranger and Tonto" vibe.

 

I do feel like they're trying to pinhole Clint Barton into that "regular guy dealing with regular problems" niche now.  Not everything has to be like that Fraction book.  The whole point of Hawkeye is that he's a regular bloke who stands among supersoldiers, mutants, and gods and holds his own.

 

I miss Hawkeye and Mockingbird.  There was a fun book.
