  1. I’m kinda surprised to see that this hasn’t been canceled. I though the ’80 were over. :p

    Anybody here reading this?

  2. I’m not reading the monthlies, but I’ve been flipping through them in my LCS. I can honestly say I cannot wait for this trade to be out.

    The only criticism I can throw at X-Force is the inclusion of Wolverine. I’m Wolverined out at this point. Time for a new team leader (Cannonball would be my choice as he lead a very black ops X-Force during the Warren Ellis plotted Counter X).

  3. I’ve gotta say … I hate it when I’m watching a movie and it’s shot too dark for me to tell what’s going on on the screen (except, obviously, when you’re supposed to be in total darkness to get ‘the effect). In comics, it’s just plain inexcusable.

    Are they trying to cover up the fact that their artists didn’t bother drawing backgrounds, or did someone just get a little to happy with the clear-to-black gradient tool in PhotoShop in post-processing … ?

  4. I agree, I always end up having to turn the bright all the way up on my tv, and that annoys me….then I flip back to watching regular tv and the picture is all screwy……..wait what were we talking about
