Sep 22nd 2010 1:22PM Nageki and Dageki: Practitioners of the Sesami no Sutoreto Karate style.
Seriously, the first thing I thought when I saw their picture was "Bert and Ernie."
Sep 10th 2010 1:01PM Captain America isn't so badass because he can block a helicopter (even though he BLOCKS A HELICOPTER). It's because right after pulling something so insane and awesome, he'll turn to you and tell you you're the only person who can win the fight. And he MEANS IT.
Jul 29th 2010 12:52PM Exactly. I didn't even need to read the rest of the review to find out why Mr. Sims didn't enjoy it-that panel at the very top was enough.
Jul 15th 2010 9:18AM Definitely agree with Transmet having an unexpected source of optimism.
Hell, Spider himself has a long monologue about it at one point, when he talks about a childhood that sounds worse than almost anything that appears in the main series, and ends with this statement as his thesis: "The future is inherently a good thing."
Spider isn't a cynical bastard because he just doesn't like people. He's a cynical bastard because he's passionate and wants people to do well to each other, and so often they fail to even be decent.
Jul 11th 2010 10:07AM Well, inle, I think there is some really amazing art in Guys and Rick's Story....but the damage is done by that point. Sim's crazy philosophy isn't as prevalent by then (and Guys does feature an amazing Alan Moore cameo, if I remember correctly), but it does pop up occasionally. So I'd only recommend those if you're enjoying the art a lot, and can ignore Sims' beliefs enough to appreciate the art.
Jul 9th 2010 1:32PM As far as Cerebus goes, here's my take. The first volume is okay, the 2nd through 7nth are great, the 8th is good, and then stop reading-you're done. Anything past that is dipping into straight craziness.
Jun 25th 2010 3:49PM I think a great example of Volstagg showing that brave (and experienced) warrior inside comes from earlier in the Simonson run, when he accosts Beta Ray Bill for trying to run off in the middle of a battle and finding Sif, who has been lost behind enemy lines. As Volstagg puts it, the life of a goddess is "a pearl beyond price," (I believe that's the correct quote, at least), but he won't let Bill run off and leave the army leaderless.
Jun 4th 2010 10:34PM Let's see if I remember this tomorrow!
Jun 2nd 2010 6:42PM Man, this is going to be a pain to sort out for the staff, isn't it?
May 8th 2010 9:23AM Weapon imbue totems.
Don't get me wrong, changing Windfury and Flametongue to their current forms was great. They were completely useless if you didn't have melee in the group, and at the time the damage Fire Totems were great ways to waste mana, since they'd die in 2 seconds. But as I raid in groups with Demonology warlocks, Frost DKs and/or 3+ shamans, it would be nice to switch out Windfury to something that uniquely buffs other melee classes and specs.
