These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

Sad to see Slott's run end. He did quite well with the time he had. Part of me thinks he might of not wanted to rewind to Pete being the down on his luck normal joe again.

I think Dan Slott's delivered some of the best Spider-Man in decades, but I also do think he's hung in there a little longer than necessary. Not "Bendis staying on the Avengers after Siege" unnecessary, he's delivered good material and really sold the "Parker Industries" idea without compromising the heart of the character, but it does feel like the time is really nigh for him to move on and I'm glad he's doing so. His first true Peter-as-Spidey versus Norman-as-Goblin saga will be a strong one to go out on, and if his next project can be another Silver Surfer quality book, we'll be the richer for it.

 

Mad as heck about Hawkeye, though, that's literally one of the best things Marvel is publishing right now.

Gwenpool, I think we already knew was coming. America... I can't say I'm upset, since it basically threw out everything I liked about the character, but it's a shame for those that liked it.

 

I dropped Captain Marvel once it became evident that Stohl wasn't getting to write "misanthropic human disaster Carol Danvers" whether she wanted to or not. I'm a little surprised that it's still going if GOTG isn't, honestly.

The rest? I can live without. Gen X was fun though.

Gen X with that legacy title only having one or two of the legacy team members until near the end pretty much killed it I think.I would have liked more of the old team reuniting than Quentin Quire and the weird mutant crew. Oh well time for someone else to get stuck with Quire now.

Finally made it up to the local comic shop for the first time in a few months. 

 

The cancelled comics? Weren't even being stocked anyway. 

 

They had four shelves of lenticular covers and four shelves of assorted $1 issues though. 

 

 

Picked up the first four issues of "Punisher: The Platoon". I've heard good things about it, so I decided to splurge and take that risk.

Sounds like Charles Soule and Saladin Ahmed have both referenced upcoming Marvel projects, and I can't help but shake my head and wonder why these weren't ready to announce before they had to put out solicitations for last month. (Which is where everyone learned of the big slate of cancellations)

Seems to me like Cebulski is pretty much making 15,000 physical copies the official line in the sand, with anything that dips below it being in danger of cancellation. 

 

My question though is if he's simply looking at sales figures, or if he's asking questions as to why those sales figures are as they are. I'd hope the latter, as that would help him figure out a better strategy to keep titles from dropping that low in the first place.

Looking at the numbers for November, She-Hulk was over 36,000 so that's an outlier. Also, to drop Generation X and Gwenpool, who were both above 14,000 while a title like Ms. Marvel hangs at 15k just seems petty.

Also, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is at 10k, and that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. (At least it better not.)

But if this is accurate:
Monsters Unleashed
Secret Warriors
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
Royals
U.S. Avengers (After No Surrender ends)
Black Bolt

Are all sub 15k and would in theory be on the chopping block.

Also Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel are within spitting distance.

EDIT: Okay, She-Hulk was just "Hulk" in October and sold 16,970; swapping over to the old name and numbering scheme must have boosted its numbers or something.

EDIT2: Oh wait, Secret Warriors hasn't been in solicitations for a couple months now and Royals even longer.

My understanding is books like Squirrel Girl and Ms Marvel sell extremely well both digitally and through Scholastic tpbs to kids neither of which tratitional rankings account for, which is why they remain while books above them on these charts are canceled.

Basically they sell great, just to audiences that these types of numbers don't measure.

-ZacWilliam, Monsters Unleashed is the one that interests me. I really like that book (I'm a few issues behind because I haven't seen an issue on stands recently) but even really liking it (its just kinda a fun old fashioned kinda comic) I expected it to have been canceled by now. Maybe the trades of the Monsters Unleashed event did really well through Scholastic and gave it a foothold in that market before the regular book launched...
