  1. Rewatching Daredevil Season 1 mainly 'cause it seems Born Again will be closer to it in tone and I won't have to feel too much pangs of longing for the Netflix series when it finally arrives . Also, Bullseye. I've seen contradictory reports as to whether Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson will be back -and if they are, it will be in a limited capacity(?). I guess it might be too much to hope Marci will be back as well but I am hoping nonetheless ('cause I keep thinking of her in those pumps). Seeing Kingpin again in DD S1, and the somewhat altered version in Hawkeye, and the one in Echo , I find myself a bit tired of him but what the hell, he's still better than some of the fingers of the Hand. That reminds me, I wouldn't mind seeing Madam Gao again.
  2. https://comicsarcheology.com/index.php/2023/10/12/keith-giffen-1952-2023/ How he broke into comics is almost as funny as his writing. There was a small part of me that was hoping that he would reunite with Tom and Mary Bierbaum on LSH.
  3. Keith Giffen passed away. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.superherohype.com/comics/550561-keith-giffen-obituary/amp
  4. Anyone see Ryma, the Yellow Ase Dai who got, um, damaned, (is she a book character, btw?) amidst the battle and eventual rubble? I know the sitter for the Blue Ajah was there.
  5. Just finished Justified City Primeval Thought it was alright but it just ain't the same without Harlan and the rest of them folk. (Yeah, I know who appeared at the end, whose bit was more entertaining than all the episodes with the homicidal rock-star wanna-be combined.)
  6. Children of Hurin reread; and afterwards, I'll follow the advice of an article and reread A Storm of Swords' Red Wedding section to cheer myself up.
  7. I wouldn't mind a live-action Kate Bishop vs Madame Masque
  8. Very belatedly reading Hawkeye: The Saga of Barton and Bishop by Matt Fraction and David Aja. So this is where the Tracksuit Mafia came from? And Pizza Dog? While I grew to appreciate MCU Clint Barton more because of the tv series, I'm sure he might have been more memorable in the Avengers movies if he'd been portrayed as a ne'er-do-well who cares like he was in Fraction's graphic novel.
  9. She always seemed like one of those people who'd go on forever.
  10. Yeah, in the animated version, Eobard (I betcha it's that name that caused him to go whacko ) called it um..."time wave"? "Time bomb"? Whatev. Actually, the original timeline was the one where Barry's mom wasn't killed (before Geoff Johns decided DC didn't have enough characters with parental issues) butI'm not gonna follow that train of thought.
  11. What to make of Tom Cruise being a fan of The Flash film... https://www.ign.com/articles/tom-cruise-loved-the-flash-so-much-he-cold-called-its-director Well, to be honest, despite my reservations about him, I'm glad he does.
  12. Utopia Avenue by David Mitchell. I just started and considering where and when it's set, I keep seeing the actors in that Beatles music based movie Across the Universe as some of the characters in this book.
  13. Hmph. Peacemaker S2 has been put on hold. While I'm intrigued by most of the announced projects, I was looking forward to it the most.

  15. I dunno if anybody here has read or heard about Abraham Reisman's bio of Stan Lee True Believer but if anyone has and is feeling disillusioned here's Roy Thomas's pushback. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/roy-thomas-former-marvel-editor-pushes-back-on-new-stan-lee-biography-guest-column

  17. I'm sorry but when I read that, I suddenly thought of Robert Mueller.
  18. Chilly reunions are Bran's specialty. I expect he'll give Jaime the "I wouldn't be what I am today if it weren't for you" speech.
  19. They do this every time. They have me exasperated with the show for majority of the season, then they blow me away (and not just with spectacle). 10.
  20. 5. One or two awesome scenes and entertaining dialogue among the seven who went beyond the Wall does not a great penultimate episode make.
