I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

It's been months but I read through Renew Your Vows.  I don't get the Battleworld stuff.  Is this mini one of the non real dimensions?  Love the story but, dang, the daughter should have been May and not Annie.  Would have loved it more if it was May for Spider-Girl and not this Annie May Parker AMP thing, sheesh.  Bonus for the Power Pack kids.  Yay female Beetle too.

 

I read the new Amazing #1 (ugh, issue reset)  yeah, gotta follow the new continuity but whooooa!  Prowler!  Now that a black Spider-Man that, uh, that actual could pull off.  (I recall Todd McFarlane drawing Prowler being all moody and Spawn-ish before, hehe).  Would be nice if Rocket Racer could be an alternate Spider-Man.  The gay wedding was ok (make it a superhero), seeing the old Horizon cast was nice,  Sajani, yiiiiikes.  But my favorite for my romantic tin heart is Anne Marie and yoooooow!

 

The back ups... is Ox and Walrus dead?  Please, I hope not.  Too many dead folks.  Who's the daddy of... who is that anyway?  Jessica Drew from 616?  The comic strip with the toilet, eeeeeew!

 

Great Dan Slott issue!  Looking forward to the rest!

 

Renew Your Vows is not the main Marvel universe, no.   Every universe was destroyed in Secret Wars and bits of them were turned into territories and mashed together to make Battleworld.

 

Renew Your Vows was set on one of these territories featuring the Parker who was from that territory (Called "The Regency"), who is different from the Parker in the Spider-Verse Secret Wars book (set in the territory "Arachnia") or any of the other Peter's running around.

 

At some point the original Marvel universe is going to come back, and it'll be basically the old continuity, so the new Amazing Spider-Man is following up One More Day and Superior Spider-Man and all that.  Due to delays, we're not getting the Secret Wars issues that explain how that happens for several more months, so the post-Secret Wars books have already started coming out alongside Secret Wars ones and its kind of a mess right now.

So this Regency territory's characters are like the Spider-Verse? So AMP might appear in the Webwarriors title? That'd be nice. She fights dirty (scratching people's eyes out? Really?) and I'd like Mayday to reach her a lesson.

Oh, I mean Prowler could be the black Spider-Man that actor was campaigning for.

Too many Spider-titles. Hope it doesn't collapse under itself.

I see ASM 1 has made the front page on a few news pages. That's pretty darn good considering it's not a death.

We don't what of Battleworld will be left when Secret Wars is over, so I can't say if Regency universe gets restored or if those characters will show up again.

It actually already happened in Amazing #1.  Scary to think about, really. I don't like it;

Well, we needed an unnecessarily powerful opponent for Pete now that Morlun's dead...

 

...no, we didn't.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Goblin is still alive. Just laying low. Peter being all multi national (mini Stark) means he'll get a higher class of villain instead of the usual street thug tho. Hope they're just as colorful.

I don't like Regent operating in the real world cuz he'd be killing heroes and villains to be powerful. Maybe it's a marvel mandate. The mutants would disappear cuz he killed most of them, haha. Then it's just inhumans.

So from the 3rd issue, the Zodiac is a Hydra, AIM, whatever terrorist group. Since I don't keep track of the Marvel Universe, are yet terrorizing other heroes? And since Peter is a global too, is he making his mark in other titles? Like, some hero using his tech or something?

Love Clash. Don't let him turn bad.

I'm guess this issue is Slott's statement on the Fantastic Four being shelved? That he'll keep the flame burning until the FF make a come back?

Would have been happier without the return of Norman. Harry is ok as Peter's friend but not Norman.

Zodiac has been around for a long time in one form or another. Dating back to 1970 with their first appearance in Avengers #72
