  1. and now I've taken up Donny's trick... THat last post was me.
  2. Small please, and with the shipping required to get it to Idaho...
  3. Moronic young male action movie fans? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> ANd 12-year-old girls in love with Shia.
  4. ANd don't forget the American female audience's obsession with accents (yes, not all of the are British): Johnathan Rhys Meyers, Sean Connery, Mel Gibson, Russell Crowe, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewan McGregor, Ioan Gruffudd... But of course that wouldn't appeal to their demographic at all :-)
  5. Nah, more like a tomb raider with an archeology degree :) I swear I've never seen so many "priceless archeological discoveries" turned into rubble so quickly. As for National Treasure... well honestly it looks like it'll be shitty, but fun, and since there's a free showing on campus on Tuesday... Hey, I'm a college student, I'll go to almost anything if it's free!
  6. An Arkham security tape of JOhn and Woodrue if memory serves...

    First of the fallen

    After reading enough Greek and Roman mythology to make my head spin I've come to the conclusion that gods who are part of a larger pantheon don't NEED consciences. It seems like they tend to have wives or pissed off relatives instead...

    First of the fallen

    lol hooray, someone managed to say it succinctly! Three paragraphs is the shortest explination I could come up with and it was still confusing so I didn't post it... Proof once again that James is a god :)
  9. "There are those exquisite days that seem to drift by, like dandelions caught on a light summer breeze. Then there are the rest of them--the ones that drift by like dandelions superglued to the arse end of a bull elephant." Hellblazer #116 I dont' necessarily love it for the John Constantineness (yeah yeah, not a word. It's 3a.m. and it is if I say it is!) of the phrase, I just love that description :)

    First of the fallen

    The short version? No. First of the Fallen and Lucifer are two different entities. If you go to the "Thology of Hellblazer" thread the guys have done a pretty good job of trying to hash out the system (it gets complicated). In Hellblazer #83 First of the Fallen (who refers to himself as The Devil, slightly different than being Lucifer/Satan) gives his own personal backstory. You want it quoted?
  11. My favorite image was always from End of the Line (#67) Dillon's title page where John's stretched out on a grave passed out with a bottle in his hand and the rain just pelting down. It's depressing, but at the same time it just fits so well...
  12. Guest I think most of us would prefer for Conjob to live a long and basically wretched life, both in story and as the Hellblazer series. That said, if given the choice between John meeting an appropriate end, or seeing the series linger for years with a repetative nowhere storyline, I'd rather see him dead. Hell, I think John would probably agree with me. At the moment we're very lucky. Carey's writing has been, in my opinion, superb and the stories are still going somewhere interesting. I want the Hellblazer series to continue for as long as it remains fresh and surprising, I don't like to see something I love staggering around half dead.
  13. Hmm, do you have any "enforcement" type words that might work? I just remember a friend of mine, a marketing major, describing hardsell to the exchange students. "Imagine you have a product, and you want to sell it. With the softsell you'd make them want it. Fluffy bunnies and babies and flowers and stuff. With the hardsell you'd make them afraid not to have it. Think the mafia showing up to your door and saying you WANT to pay them for protection, 'cause if you don't they're gonna break your knees."
  14. You touch one hair on her goth little head and I'll stab you with a black eyeliner pencil!!! That said, some fresh ideas or trends WOULD be nice...
  15. I've got to agree with Rogan here. I voted no, mostly because I don't trust people to fuck with things I like. There are elements of DC that I would like to see done with a Vertigo flair, and I've got to admit that the idea of a GOOD Batman/Hellblazer crossover makes me drool, but overall I'd prefer if the two universes remained separate. I love superhero comics, but in general I prefer if they stay the hell away from my horror stories.
  16. GUess we should revell in our five minutes... Oh, wait, they're already gone. Damn it, I slept through my only chance at fame :-(
  17. (not being an artist and therefore just going for "ooh shiny") I was always intrigued by the art, right up until you got to a fight scene. Then it tended to get even more confusing than Manga :( Here's a knee, here's sombody's foot, here's a lot of hair... Still, I love it :)
  18. Well there you go, we're destined to disagree :)
  19. In my mind edgy has to try harder, although some of the basic elements are the same. However, I think this is turning into semantics. Suffice to say I'm not sure if you'd like it, but in my opinion it's a hell of a lot better than some of the shit Vertigo's been putting out recently :)
  20. Hmm, edgy... Well it started in 1991, the guy payed for the printing himself (and sold countless issues out of his home 'cause most stores didn't carry it) and it managed to stay alive and later thrive until he decided he was done with the series... Edgy (in the Vertigo way that you REALLY want to imply) isn't the first word that comes to mind. It's fucked up, dysfunctional, violent, angry, sarcastic, occasionally sadistic, and in my opinion funny as hell, but I'm not willing to call it edgy 8-) I REALLY wish I had a scanner...
  21. Funny, that's part of the reason why I love Poison Elves, I always enjoyed Drew Hayes' rather cynical, dirty, pissed off view of the fairy tale world. I enjoyed watching Luse try to dismember the Purple Marauder at every turn... As for being nice, refrain from flogging dead horses or throwing temper tantrums and we should be good :icon_confused: (I know, I know, that's supposed to be confused, but they don't have a good sarcastic smile...)
  22. Very diplomatic of you ;) . Would you like to explain what you disliked?
  23. I'm not allowed to watch Constantine with any of my friends. :icon_cry: One of them is a self-affirmed Keanufile and the rest have found themselves black and blue for saying things like "It might not be too bad," or "It looks promising"... I'm just gonna have to sneak into the theater by myself, 'cause there's no way in hell I"m paying for that piece of shit!!!
  24. So I'm sick of getting blank looks, has anyone else ever read Poison Elves? It's a dark fantasy title by Drew Hayes (No, no relation whatsoever to Elf QUest unless you count Hayes making fun of Elf Quest in most of his introductions). It has very dark amazingly done artwork, although occasionally confuses the action. http://www.tgfa.org/comics/elves/elves.htm Not the best storyline, but a good example of the art.
