    I think you're mistaken: the two latter events are both clearly Dan Brown's fault. (Or perhaps just the first is Dan Brown and the second is EL James' work...)

    I'd certainly place more of the blame for it on Miller than I would on Brad Meltzer: generally the person who wrote most of something is more culpable for the stuff that's wrong with it than somebody else who didn't write any of it.

    The Priest Black Panther is great fun, so it's nice to see Marvel acknowledging that it exists.
  4. Other comics we read recently

    That may well be true, but it doesn't alter the fact that blaming the way Marvel fucked itself up on Brad Meltzer rather than Mark Millar is ridiculous bullshit.

    That's on Marvel rather than DC or Meltzer, though.

    Finally got around to reading Meltzer and Morales' Identity Crisis, and I'm not sure that it's quite as reprehensible and foul a comic as its reputation implies. The Alan Moore scene is gratuitous, and the final revelation is mind-numbingly daft (though I might be able to take it more seriously if Ambush Bug: Year None hadn't spoilered it) but it still works quite well as a story. (Ish)

    If #20 is the issue I'm thinking of, you might have been thinking: "this pub scene is a rip off of the one in EuroTrip"...

    Just Mister Miracle. Are they relaunching CalExit already?
  9. DC Comics

    Halfway through one of the collections, then, Lou? That's not ideal.

    Saturday morning kid's telly from the dark ages, seventh. The biro-bearded disc jockey used to host a television show that was a set up for children to exchange stuff. Nobody watched it, however, as it was on at the same time as the vastly better Tiswas.

    This seems a great idea for a thread, Ade. I'll try to resist thinking of you as Noel Edmonds from now on, though.
  12. DC Comics

    The film's definitely worth seeing, but they made a point of toning down some stuff down in a way that pisses purists off. The stuff you'd expect, mostly.

    Nothing this week, though I do feel vaguely guilty that there's a comics company called Space Goat Publishing who I've never bought anything by...
  14. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    Probably not. The more I think about it, the more twitter looks like the ideal medium for Ellis.

    I thought Kid Lobotomy was promoted as an ongoing? Maybe somebody's realised that S:TCM was originally promoted as a miniseries and got promoted to an ongoing after the first few issues did really well, and that reversing that approach for this title will provide balance...
