There’s always been a very close relationship between gaming and comics, and while this site doesn’t cover a lot of gaming stuff (we probably should), we can at least throw the gamers a bone with this week’s Friday Sing-along from Kirby Krackle.Â With E3 wrapping up, the comic book rock band takes a look at the early 64-bit gaming world.
BOOM! Studios announced today that THE INCREDIBLES: FAMILY MATTERS #2, one of the premiere titles for their new BOOM! Kids imprint, has sold out in only one week! This follows on the heels of simultaneous pre-release sell outs for THE INCREDIBLES: FAMILY MATTERS #1 and THE MUPPET SHOW COMIC BOOK #1, as well as sell outs of CARS: THE ROOKIE #1 and THE MUPPET SHOW COMIC BOOK #2.
Fans should keep in mind, while Diamond Comics Distributors is completely sold out, THE INCREDIBLES: FAMILY MATTERS #2 first printing may still be found at a direct market retailer near you.
Diamond Comics Distributors is making the second printing of THE INCREDIBLES: FAMILY MATTERS #2 available for retailers to order immediately and the second print will be featured in a forthcoming issue Diamond Dateline.
I’m digging Kirby Krackle and the fact that they are from the comic book industry. So once again, another song from the group.
Yes, you did hear those lyrics right:
Hey there Skrull Girl,
How’s the shape shiftin?
I imagine you would have some esteem issues
Cause you’re always changing, all the damn time
Pick a body type, I’ll tell you what turns me on
I could think of a dozen ways that I’d like to see you
mainly naked but always with the chin
I know it’s wrinkly, but I kinda like it
So don’t you ever, never, ever, never, ever, never, ever, never,
ever, never, ever, never, never get rid of that chin you Skrull Girl!
You Marvelous Girls!
What happens if you donâ€™t do what a god tells you to do?Â Thatâ€™s what the members of the Justice Society of America are about to find out as Gog makes a demand that not everyone is comfortable with.
Paul Pope thinks fight sequences are vexed by page limits.Â In Battle Boy, Pope is devoting about 50 pages to a single fight sequence.
In Batman Year 100, I had room for a couple of long fight sequences, but I felt cramped even with 200 pages. This fight scene from BATTLING BOY alone is about 50 pages. It’s liberating to have no page restrictions. I wish Kirby could’ve had 50 pages for one fight scene, imagine what he would’ve done.
I’m in the process of cleaning out the Major Spoilers Toy Closet (something that is taking forever).Â The toy collection goes back nearly 20 years and contains a variety of figures (some are for sale), and I’m constantly amazed at the number of different styles a particular character can take.
This brings me to…
Yes, take the jump and see all the Darkseid incarnations.
It has been a real struggle to write the reviews for Final Crisis.Â Every time I pick up the book, I get angry over what I am reading, but then after a while, my blood stops boiling and I give it a second, third, and more often than not, a fourth and fifth reading to come to some kind of understanding with what Morrison is trying to accomplish.Â I see and respect what he is doing, but that doesnâ€™t mean I have to like it.
