Actually, Avengers Vs. Defenders has been collected.If this reboot is successful, will it cause Marvel to follow? I hope so, maybe then we'd get a graphic novel of the 1973 series, "Avengers vs Defenders." God, I had the entire series, bought is as each comic came out, read them again and again. Saved them until I was 18, when my mother's bf sold them, along with the rest of my collection, to pay for his drug and alcohol addictions.
Bobblehead: which celebrities plan to appear at the Comic Convention-see...and i thought dims was a safe place to get away from comics...lol. i am married to a comics collector (and former dealer), self publisher and overall comics junkie. he is mainly into legion of superheroes...but has cases upon cases of comics. yes, they are all lovingly bagged and boarded...lol. they have their own special comic boxes and everything...fun..except when we have to move them to get to stuff...
right now he is powering up for heroescon...held right here in beautiful Charlotte, NC. It is the largest comic convention in NC. I am pretty sure outside of dragoncon..it is the biggest in the southeast. He is so psyched!
the good part is he is very easy to shop for...although the silver/golden age stuff can be crazy pricey...he gets comics for most major holidays.
at least he gave up collecting those little statues...
much love to all the comic geeks!
READ! WATCHMEN! NOW! It is quite possibly the best thing ever written (take that Hamlet!). Honestly, the movie will not nearly do it justice. Not saying it will suck, but it can't possibly compare to what was originally written/drawn. Watchmen is the type of book that really lends itself to multiple readings. My own paperback copy is nearly falling apart because of how often I've read it & I'm still discovering new things in it, lol!
And if you enjoy Watchmen I would also recommend Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (but steer clear of The Dark Knight Strikes Again), Mark Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme (& it's modern counterpart), Miller's run on Daredevil is also excellent (I highly recommend the Born Again storyline, in particular).
I pick up nearly everything Daredevil related. For some reason he's the only hero I can stand these days. Bendis' run on DD was great, certainly better than his New Avengers stuff, IMO. In writing that, Bendis made me hate Spider-Man. I know he's supposed to be a guy that quips alot to throw villains off-guard & all that, but in this he was just SOOOOO annoying I often felt like tearing up the damn books!
i hate when people think that Lynda Carter was the best Wonder Woman. she just happens to be the ONLY Wonder Woman. (Adrianne Palicki doesn't count, since the NBC pilot wasn't green-lit.)I agree RED BOOTS! and SHORTY SHORTS!!! Lynda Carter could kick her ass!

that's like saying Seth Rogen is the best Green Hornet.
(sorry for the late reply on this)Because yet another reboot is going to so help their bottom line. :doh:
It was pretty good. I enjoyed first class. As far as reboots go I recall back in the 80's Mark Gruenwald saying that "Marvel doesn't do reboots, we get it right the first time." Of course it makes one wince at the later retcons like "One more day." I had to laugh at the attempted John Byrne Hulk retcon. Rick Jones made fun of it over in "Captain Marvel." It was so laughable that everyone ignored it and Marvel just retconned that retcon away.Has anyone seen it yet? I really liked it, but dont know a whole lot about that side of the X-Men. It was directed by Matthew Vaughn who did Kick-Ass; which I loved. I'd like to hear your thoughts. Also, I recently saw Thor and surprisingly found it really good.
Most of John Byrne's retcons have fortunately been retconned away. Spider-Man: Chapter One was so bad I actually set fire to the book and threw it into a barrel. I remember when he retconned away a scene between Arcade and Dr. Doom by having Doom turn out to be a doombot, reasoning that Doom would simply never brook insolence. Ouch.It was pretty good.

WOW. Glad the WW series never got green lit. Looked terrible. Probably would've had follow the new Knight Rider/ Bionic Woman line up. So a Logan's Run Reboot? hmmm Do we really need to re-live our childhood favorites? Didn't they learn from Clash of the Titans? What's next? Forbidden Planet Re-Boot? Ain't cool news was discussing a possible Time Bandits Re-Boot. There really is no need is there? Let's get creative again! Let's come up with new characters and ideas! Enough said. There's my rant of the day.http://collider.com/christina-hendricks-wonder-woman-nicolas-winding-refn/97525/
I'm just going to set this down here for a moment.
