Film & TV / Re: No Wonder Woman 3?
« on: 08 December, 2022, 08:44:44 PM »
The best parts of DC are the TV shows. Sandman is another case in point. It’s when they go big-budget blockbuster that it all goes to crap. (TBF, I largely feel the same about Marvel now – I thought most of the Phase 4 films were middling to poor. But I have at least enjoyed some of them. DCU… not really.)

My guess is most houses will at some point get a big stack of mail all at once. That happened around here a couple of times. One year, basically all of my Christmas presents showed up on the 23rd. That was fun. (This was in the days when Amazon still used Royal Mail, and I’d bought about half my stuff from that company. It had taken well over a week to arrive.)

Mm. WW1 was OK. WW84 was bad to the point it made Mrs IP quite angry at the whole thing. And DCU in a broader sense has varied from barely above OK to garbage. The question is whether Gunn will be given the time to make a reboot work. My guess is probably not. If the first film or two isn’t a mega-hit, someone with money will be screaming that this isn’t yet kicking the MCU’s arse (without understanding how the MCU was slowly built) and they’ll be on to whatever the next reboot might be.

Made all the more frustrating as the boys Phoenix's are limping through okay is, a few days delay aside.
Here, even those are random now. Mini-IP got two on the same day. I’ve asked her to start keeping an eye on whether those and her Beanos are showing up, but, well, she’s 8.

It’s such a mess. Core infrastructure should never be sold off, and post is core infra. All the warnings at the time have come to pass. Royal Mail, not it’s a for-profit entity with shareholders, wants to ditch the things that don’t make it cash. Which leaves letter post where? (And given that all magazines sit in that space… bleh.)

You’re not alone, although the severity appears to vary: https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=49017.30;topicseen

Mm. not doing more of The Order is a pity, not least given that it’s concluding. Giving people a complete run in the UC would have been a nice thing to do, even though I personally don’t care for the story that much.

Those other decisions strike me as a positive. The Summer Offensive strips were mostly garbage, and some are mired in rights issues anyway. As for Outlaw, it’s been a long time since I read that strip, but I don’t recall it firing me up at the time.

Mazeworld seems a sensible inclusion. It’s a good strip. Dan Dare is a surprise, given that DDC will presumably need to give permission, and I imagine would want a cut. I’d hope the back matter might address what would have happened next. (That said, I won’t buy any of those, since I’m happy with my Dare HCs and whatever Mazeworld book I have already – a SC, I think, but I don’t feel compelled to ‘upgrade’.)

Likewise. No Prog here as yet. If it’s not here by the time the next one arrives, I’ll assume it’s lost and ping Rebellion.

The Titan HC is seven quid, including delivery, FWIW: https://forbiddenplanet.com/103962-numbercruncher-volume-1-titan-edtion-hardcover/

It’s been a very long time since I missed an issue, FWIW. And even then, 2000 AD shipped a new one right away (and even suggested I. It leave it so long to report an issue missing – I think I’d left it ten days).

Yep. Things are pretty random here too, hence checking. (Mini-IP got a Phoenix two days ago… and then another today. The Beano is all over the shop now. But it’s been a very long time since 2000 AD arrived any later than the Saturday after it was expected, even with the strikes. Oh well – I have plenty of other things to read in the meantime!)

Bit sad Marney the Fox is being offloaded (if that indicates poor sales), but a barg for anyone who still doesn’t have a copy, at under a fiver. I see The Beatles Story HC is back too, for less then the price of a Prog. I got Goldtiger in the previous one of these sales. At £6.79, it’s well worth a punt. Tons of Treasury stuff in here too.

A pity it wasn’t the first balloon on the previous page, which wouldn’t have mattered. Oh well. I guess someone had plonked this one on the wrong layer. Maybe we should go old-school, like in the days of game mags, with a cut-out-and-stick-on balloon to fix things!

Here’s one: https://snubcommunications.com/junk/the-out-balloon.png

It’s OK. I have a set of comics somewhere. I prefer it to a good chunk of IDW and more than half of DC Dredd. But I still would find it… a curious decision to reprint here. (Plus, there’s just so much of it – and there are far, far better Dredd stories that haven’t been in this and the previous collection.)

I can’t imagine they’d stoop so low as to include LOTF material. DC Dredd would be an odd one too. But… movie Dredd? That’s not all been collected in print, and we now know it’s a finite strip.
