Other Comics / The Immortal Iron Fist
« on: May 12, 2007, 07:03:28 am »
Any of you reading this book? Wow this is one of the hottest books out now. I can't believe this story has not been told yet. Brubaker hit a home run with this one. If Danny can be in a title this hot it is no doubt that done right Cage could as well, hell both of them together would even be hotter. How worldly the society is today with the Paris Hiltons, Corporate misdeeds and the war on terror there is little doubt that the buddy book hero for hire would not work.

issue 5 was one of the best books I have read this year. Has the history of Kuhn lun been told in more detail then this before?

Latest Flicks / 5 Deadly Venoms
« on: April 30, 2007, 05:35:23 pm »
Not a latest flick by far but a classic. Got the DVD of of Amazon and watched it for the first time in years. This film and this group of 6 martial artist produced some of the best work ever. Man this was a throw back and looking at fight choreography in this movie was stunning. You guys have ever peeped this flick or any of the other Shaw Brothers films. It is my goal to own all 12 of the movies these guys starred in collectively.

Other Comics / Marc Guggenheim Appreciation Thread.
« on: April 26, 2007, 03:18:25 pm »
Hey I don't know how many of you have been checking out the Hyperion v/s Night Hawk mini by Marc Guggenheim but it concluded last week and it has been both an informative and entertaining ride. Yes NightHawk kicks much ass in this series but more importantly he brings some attention to unspeakable horrors that is going on currently in Darfur. From time to time I will hear the talking heads on Meet The Press or CSpan debating this issue like it is something in doubt but while we fight in a region where no one really wants us there atrocities are being committed in a land where many black folks are dying and once again no one really cares. For all the militant midgets of the board including myself I think we owe Mr. Marc a big time bravo for not giving some shine to one of the baddest comic characters ever created NightHawk but bringing attention even in a comic book a ongoing disaster.

Thanks Marc.

Ok Ok I will jump in. After much internal debait to jump in the latest heffa fad, I said I will get down with all of you e-cool folks and get me a sig. The thing is I still can't get a picture to work in my sig from my photobucket account, since we cant just add pics anymore booo by the way. Any way I have to stick with my avatar as every time I have changed it I had to change it back because it just did not seem right. A nice sig is another issue lol. Here is the deal. All of you sig experts make me a sig and as opposed to me picking I will let you all decide which one fits me the best as a poster. Even how much is scares me to give over that much e-power I will relent and let yall decide what one of the sigs represents your boy the best.

Have at it. :)

Latest Flicks / Do you watch Director's commentaries?
« on: March 15, 2007, 03:26:47 pm »
Do you watch them on DVDs? I am probably the only person I know that will watch them. This is the real reason to own a DVD to me. I have learned so much from watching these that In my next life I swear I want to either be a director or a cinematographer or even a boom operator. The best ones I have seen were the Baby Boy, Miami Vice, Belly, Blade I, and Apocalypse Now. The directors in these movies went above and beyond on the DVD commentaries to tell you what went into making the movie.

Do you all have any suggestions on good director's commentaries? Do you all watch them?

Other Comics / Hey dad I want to write Comics.
« on: February 13, 2007, 11:26:23 am »
Umm son, why don't you try for something a little more realistic like being an astronaut. We have had more black men in outer space then we have had write comics for the big two. Seriously though I was trying to find McDuffie's back ground info because I could have sworn somewhere that I read he went to school to be an engineer or something and I wanted to see if my hunch of a pseudo scientific background was correct. Could not find the info anywhere but he did go to the university of Michigan for both his undergrad and graduate degrees. So while looking at his site for that I thought to myself damn, Reg is an Ivy leaguer, Kevin Grevioux who will write the new warriors is a former scientist and McDuffie has a strong educational background, I guess you really have to be either highly educated, smart as all get out, highly determined or all of the above in order to write comics for the major companies. Our boy Redjack is no slouch either so maybe we need to rethink our notion of what it means to be involved in the "funny book" business.

On another note, talk about having to be bigger and better. Is it just a coincidence that these brothers are this sharp or does it come with the territory. I don't feel like doing a wiki on every marvel or DC talent but I doubt every writer they have has such a high level of accomplishment as these guys.

« on: February 12, 2007, 05:37:18 pm »
I HATE ZOMBIES. Some of the younger posters enlighten me to the new zombie craze, I just don't get it. I can tell you about penny loafers, parachute pants, colored levis and even when member's only jackets were not just worn by your grandfather. I just don't have a clue about zombies. Reg you killen me brah. But I will admit you are knocking the fanboys out of the park. You and marvel marketing of this book is out of this world. Of course Im going to check this one out but you better knock this one out of the park. :)

Black Panther / New Avengers #27 = Bp # 10, 11, 12
« on: February 08, 2007, 02:47:44 pm »
Ok read New Avengers 27 and the second best issue of the run next to New Avengers # 22 The Cage Issue. Strong issue. But while the fanboys are busting nuts over this issue I think to myself where have I seen epic the Hand Ninja wall to wall ars kicking before eh? You got it right here in the pages of the Black Panther. Now don't get me wrong on some levels you are talking about apples and oranges but Reg still has not gotten his shine from still the most important arc in years. No It wasn't the Marvel heavy hitters but for the first time you had the Who's Who in Marvel Minority characters in the same book at the same time. Yawn for the fanboys, ground breaking for us. Hats off again to you Reg on this issue.

I have my autographed copy of this arc prominently displayed on my desk. 8)

Comic Reviews and Spoilers / Silver Buller Review BP#24

Black Panther #24

Posted: Monday, February 5

“War Crimes: Part Two”

Writer: Reginald Hudlin
Artists: To, Turnbull (p), Ho, de Los Santos, Regla, Nix (i)

Publisher: Marvel Comics


Plot: Storm is hopping mad about the state of affairs in the United States, so while the Panther goes undercover with Cap, she takes some very public actions, seeking advice and council on her terms, rather than the terms Iron Man is trying to set.

Comments: By my reckoning, Civil War has had a very uneven effect on a variety of Marvel titles, and not just due to company-wide delays in publication. For some books, the effect was deleterious. She-Hulk turned in its preachiest issue ever, totally out of step with the themes of the title. New Avengers has been reduced to a series of individual spotlights, unable to carry on as any sort of team since it began. The Fantastic Four and Amazing Spider-Man have been stalling for time, spinning wheels while stories go nowhere.

For other titles, their Civil War issues were taken in stride, or allowed the writer a chance to comment on the theme with their stars. Ms. Marvel has had to confront some of her own assumptions, Thunderbolts absorbed the dark times into their own agendas, and Hudlin takes the theme of social protest and sovereignty issues and runs with it, turning in the best mix yet of his concerns with race relations, police actions and individual freedoms.

This issue is a Storm spotlight, and it’s about time. In fact, the series of short vignettes he fashions here is perhaps the best response I’ve seen from each individual front of the Civil War, showing that someone at least at Marvel is on the ball as far as respecting their characters as people who think and talk and worry, not just costumes who are moved on and off stage like puppets.

Storm has been getting the short end of the stick ever since Claremont’s X-Men annual, incongruously overshadowed by the Panther, who (despite his having had more than one solo title over the years and being her predecessor by a decade or more) is nonetheless a lower profile character than the X-Men’s premier leader and conscience for the last several decades. It’s blind sexism to have marriage eclipse the history, fandom and established personality as a fierce individualist of a character who is arguably Marvel’s best counterpart to DC’s Wonder Woman.

This issue, Hudlin doesn’t forget that Ororo’s not just a mutant warrior; she’s also quite literally a Queen, and that role is always fraught with rights, privileges and responsibilities. Surely, T’Challa chose her in part because he knew she could handle them. Here, on her own, she copes with governmental pressure (is she or is she not subject to Registration?), public scrutiny, and her own doubts and fears for her friends. She argues with Iron Man, she seeks counsel with her paternal grandparents (Storm has a family? How often does anyone remember that?), and she finally goes to talk to Reed Richards, her long-time friend and colleague.

Meanwhile, the Panther spars with Cap, mentors Photon, and judges Sue Storm and Tigra. In Wakanda, the U.S. Military makes a show of force, which rattles the Wakandan leadership, already leery of the Panther’s world tour.

Good issue, lot going on, almost all of it making a fair amount of sense. Hudlin has Ororo’s grandma speak very idiomatically, but this too succeeds better than some of his attempts at having his characters let their hair down before. Storm went to her family for comfort, and she needs it with the decisions weighing on both her new allies and her old friends.

The art, on the other hand, is little more than serviceable. This title deserves a regular artist and a distinctive visual style to go with Hudlin’s words.

General Discussion / Help With Streaming Video
« on: February 06, 2007, 04:12:01 pm »
For some of you more internet savvy members, I need some help. Fell asleep during heroes and I was trying to watch the streaming video replay on nbc.com. I have been having issues with this site as well as youtube. The video will play for 3 seconds pause play for 3 seconds and then pause again. I don't know if this is a driver issue or codecs. Anyone know what can be causing this? It is only with streaming video. Any help  would be appreciated.
