    He is quite an unreliable narrator, it is true. Well, even if they didn't in reality, he had fantasies about them having sex, so she might count as an ex to him.
  3. American Gods

    ORLY? TO AMAZON !!!!

    Are you sure? He's insisting that they did, but he's also barking mad so his convictions that this is what happened might well be suspect. Milligan likes his unreliable narrators, after all.
  5. American Gods

    Amazon has it. I bought the blue rays. Worth it.

    They have fucked each other though.
  8. American Gods

    Yeah, me too. Loved the book. Have yet to catch the show. I don't think I have that channel.

    I don't think the protagonist and his sister were ever really a couple in that one, though obviously I've not read the third issue.
  10. Comics Shipping the Week of Dec 11th

    I thought it would be because she was the ex of someone who now has a far cooler girlfriend, and she needs to be demeaned in front of her ex, so her ex can know that he's dating the coolest woman on the planet....as per the usual Milligan.

    If Cordelia's his sister, she's probably getting fat because one of the lads she's killed while shagging them got her pregnant.
  13. Comics Shipping the Week of Dec 11th

    I said I was going to check out issue #3, because it said that Franz Kafka was going to appear in the story. I figured it was worth getting just for a Kafka appearance. However, the next issue's synopsis asks, "Why is Cordelia getting fat?", which brings back all those memories of Milligan's HB. I'll probably want to jump ship before such happenings.
  14. Marvel's One World Order

    Oh, I thought that Marvel had decided to only have one Avengers book, and that it was being written by Waid. I must have misunderstood.
  15. American Gods

    I read the book years ago in college (and read Anansi Boys more recently, a year two back), but haven't check out the show yet. It's on my eventual "to watch" list.
  16. Earth X

    I stopped following the DCTV shows ages ago, though my wife still watches Flash regularly. I tuned in for the crossover, though I missed the first half of Supergirl and Flash both nights since I was putting our son in bed. I thought it was all handled very well, it was a pretty faithful translation of a comic event series. Like you, though, I had no idea who half of the Legends characters were supposed to be (or who half of the Arrow side characters were either, to be honest, other than Mr. Terrific and his awesome comics-accurate costume).
  17. Earth X

    That's the longest I have spent with the DCTVU On reflection Flash - charming better of the two senior series. Better Rogues Gallery of course. Leo Snart is grand. Arrow - I'll stick with Gotham Supergirl - certainly shows the current movies how to do it. I hear they have Jonn Jonnz Mr Terrific is fun. Firestorm was excellent, and Red Tornado , they should do that elementals cross over with Swampy and whoever the watery one was. Not sure I followed the Legends stuff or who is who. Earth X as nazi is a tad obvious. But their Overgirl was convincing.

    I thought you'd given up on Kid Lobotomy?
  19. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    Bendix is a shouty angry slaphead: of course Ellis enjoys writing him.
  20. Marvel's One World Order

    Ewing's Avengers series didn't get cancelled, it just got folded into the 4-times weekly AVENGERS series through the crossover, right? I thought all of the titles were coming out the other side with relaunches in time for the new movie.
  21. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I suspect that's just a case of him enjoying some characters more than others, I bet he just loves writing a mean old crank like Bendix.
  22. Marvel's One World Order

    I don't know what is going on with Marvel at the moment, they seem to be cutting a lot of their titles, right after their latest relaunch. Is it time for another relaunch? I think Marvel's editors are finding all those big numbers on the covers of their comics confusing and disconcerting. They're more comfortable seeing single digit numerals. I'm sure that they felt they needed more #1s for comfort purposes. It seems that both of Al Ewing's titles for Marvel have been canceled now. So, I wonder if Ewing is the next big name to leave Marvel?
  23. Last week
  24. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    The weird thing is the way the characters he conspicuously hasn't changed (that he's writing Henry Bendix as exactly the same unspeakable authoritarian shitweasel he was in Ellis' second Stormwatch series, for instance, is very conspicuous) stand out a lot more than the ones he has revamped. I'm starting to wonder if that's deliberate.
  25. American Gods

    Burned through the first season over a couple of days, wouldn't surprise me if it's near a word-for-word adaptation of the books as the first season plays out like the first third of a novel rather than a complete series of TV. I enjoyed it all the same
  26. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I don't think you'll miss out on anything beyond an initial 'ohIknowthatname!' moment, it's a brand new take on the characters so their relationships and history may be totally different to their original counterparts. Examples of nods - the original Deathblow had a vertical strip of warpaint over each eye whereas the new one has a tattoo of two vertical strips on his arm, Zealot's introduction scene has her wiping blood off her face that just happened to resemble the warpaint/markings her original incarnation wore.
  27. Comics Shipping the Week of Dec 11th

    Dammit! The only comic I was truly looking forward to this week (Judas #1, see above) was sold out at the comic book store, even though I had it on my pull list, due to the fact that stupid Curtis only ordered one copy! Sure, Royal City, Jenny Finn, and Mister Miracle (oh, and there's a Kid Lobotomy in there as well) are all good reads, but I probably would have skipped this week (there's a freakin' blizzard going on out there today!), had it not been for the promise of seeing if Judas would appeal to me.
  28. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I was thinking more of the background stuff than the characters who actually appear on the page, to be honest: all the stuff with King and Craven blathering about Lynch and the like. Mind you, that could be setting stuff up that's going to appear in the story later rather than just winking at a certain chunk of the readership.
