Wow another laser person
for every marvel exec that says audiences are tired of origin stories two origin stories grow back
Into the Spider-Verse is fucking phenomenal. It is easily the best comic book movie I’ve ever seen. It is an absolute joy to watch.
They nail the visuals, the characters are spot-on and perfectly cast, the emotion beats hit just right, the pacing is perfect, the story is somehow fantastic, despite trying to merge 5 different story lines together into one.
Wow that was great.
i finally read tom kings mister miracle tonight and god what just an incredible thing it was
As someone who has only a vague awareness of the comics industry I found this Tom King post pretty interesting
And the reaction to it has been equally as bizarre:
the power of spider-man is so great that my joy at seeing a comics-accurate(ish) mysterio costume in live action is dulled by the fact that i can’t help but be disappointed that this isn’t into the spider-verse two already
(the spider-verse version of mysterio would clearly be voiced by like scott aukerman or something and be incredible, alas)
is this the first major MCU film to feature a character whose gimmick is that He Sucks???
just found out today at the comic shop that marvel regained the conan license and they’re releasing a bunch of new stuff?!
just snagged the shop’s last 30th anniversary hardcover of Crisis on Infinite Earths
edit: i couldn’t even make it through the first issue. the foreword had already put me on the ropes, and then i took one look at that first cover- all the detail there was to take in- cringed, and shut the book.
edit #2: can’t decide whether to press on or take another stab at Astro City and/or Grant Morrison’s run on Doom Patrol.
both of your alternative choices are better than crisis on infinite earths
what’s wrong with crisis on infinite earths?
i hate that i love this
it’s driving me crazy that it’s a modern squarespace style long site instead of actual individual pages
