  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ... and often the answers to those "why" questions comes down to a very simple explanation of "because it's a funny situation".
    August 24, 2018, 05:37:39 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

    August 24, 2018, 05:30:21 pm
  • Tuxedo Mark: With New Riverdale, things kinda make more sense, overall, I guess. With Classic Archie (even new Classic Archie), I find myself often asking "Why is this even an issue?" or "Why would the teen characters even care about this?" With Riverdale, it's absolutely insane bonkers, but everyone involved is in on the joke, so it's fun to just sit back, shut off my brain, and enjoy. :)
    August 24, 2018, 05:28:08 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: What I originally meant by "realistic" is that actors are more convincing at portraying real people on television than lines on paper and words in dialogue balloons are in a comic book.

Picked up about 30 Archie Comics back issues from the 50c boxes last week. Don't know when I'll get around to reading them, but some of those are actually in pretty good condition, for ACP comics from the late 1980s. Some early issues of VERONICA, DILTON'S STRANGE SCIENCE, LAUGH (Vol. 2), plus BETTY AND ME, BETTY AND VERONICA, and a couple of Archie Giant Series B&V SPECTACULARs.

05-17 to 05-24-18:
JIMMYS BASTARDS #8
THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON #5 (of 5)
G.I. JOE VS THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN #4 (of 4)
HIT-GIRL #4

COSMO #5 (of 5) - Sorry to see it go. Along with YOUR PAL ARCHIE and MIGHTY CRUSADERS, it's one of a very few floppy comics ACP has published in the last year or two that I really enjoyed. There's still SUPERTEENS VS CRUSADERS upcoming, but that's a mere 2-issue microseries, and then ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66 (which I'm not sure how many issues there are supposed to be of... probably somewhere between 4 and 6). And then there's the upcoming DIE KITTY DIE: HEAVEN & HELL from AstroComix and (hopefully) more of SUPER SUCKERS from Darin Henry's SitComics.

SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP (with Blue Falcon & Dynomutt) #38 - It's officially my favorite DC comic book right now (with Future Quest Presents in 2nd place). Writer Sholly Fisch does a great job of working in Easter eggs and in-jokes for long-time DC fans, and handles the humor deftly with a light touch, and I'm loving the variety of DC and Hanna-Barbera guest-stars.

LOONEY TUNES #243 - It's good, but the writing tends to be variable from story to story.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #3 (of 4) - DC heroes and villains reconfigured into new Justice League teams to battle 4 giant cosmic beings (somewhat like Marvel's Galactus in that they feed on the energies of entire planets)

FLASH #47 ("Flash War", Part 1) - Not sure if I'll stick with this, or if it's really going anywhere in particular with this story of Wally West's pre-Flashpoint/New 52 reboot memories.

DETECTIVE COMICS #981 - "Batmen Eternal" Conclusion. Looks like they're breaking up the Bat-family team that starred in this title since the first Rebirth issue (#934, which restored the legacy numbering) and changing the writer, so this might be my last issue. I enjoy the Batman-inspired protege characters, and liked seeing them interact as a regular team, and James Tynion IV was one of the few of the more recent crop of writers at DC whose work I liked. The new writer Bryan Hill, is an unknown to me, and the solicitations for #982 and beyond don't really interest me.

WONDER WOMAN #47 - I haven't been enjoying this as much the last couple of issues, but I guess I'll keep following it through issue #50, which appears to be the last written by James Robinson (an old favorite of mine). Looks like I'm dropping most of the few DC in-universe titles which I still read. (I'm not thrilled with the idea of Brian Michael Bendis taking over on Superman, either. He pretty much ruined Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy for me, over at Marvel.)

THE TERRIFICS #4
- Still reading this (for a while, at least) because I enjoy Jeff Lemire's work, especially on Dark Horse's BLACK HAMMER and its various spinoff miniseries).

INFINITY COUNTDOWN: DARKHAWK #1 (of 4)
THE BEEF #4 (of 5)
BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM #2
PELLUCIDAR: AT THE EARTH'S CORE #1
(one-shot)
STAR TREK: NEW VISIONS #21: "THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY"
THE SEASON OF THE SNAKE #1 & 2

Millenium Edition: Superman's Girl Friend LOIS LANE #1 (1958/2000 reprint)
Millenium Edition: Superman's Pal JIMMY OLSEN #1 (1954/2000 reprint)
Millenium Edition: Tales Calculated to Drive You MAD #1 (1952/2000 reprint)

WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #166 (May 1967) - This was the first and only appearance of Bron Wayn E7705, the 20th direct descendant of Bruce Wayne and the future Batman of 2967. In this story, "The Danger of the Deadly Duo" written by then-High School student Jim Shooter (later to become the editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics in the 1980s), he first teams up with the Superman of 2967 [Klar Ken T5477] to battle their two archenemies, the future Joker and Superman's arch-foe Muto (a yellow-skinned hyperencephalic mutant with advanced telekinetic powers). The story was a sequel to previous appearances of the Superman of the 30th Century in SUPERMAN #181 and ACTION COMICS #338-39 (all written by Edmond Hamilton, who also wrote many of the early Legion of Super-Heroes stories). Unlike some other occasional diversions from the normal Superman continuity of the time, this one was not labeled as an "Imaginary Story" that "may or may not ever happen someday", but this was the final story in this sequence of future Superman tales. I loved searching out and discovering these oddball "special" stories as a young comic book collector. All of them were reprinted in the 2008 trade paperback collection, SUPERMAN: PAST AND FUTURE.
