Bought/Thought 12/12/07

I liked Champagne's "GL Corpse" arc. Coulda swore I read somewhere he was coming back to the book. Maybe a fill in issue or something.
 
Kinda surprised about the lack of fanboy outrage over the death of the Trickster.
 
Isn't there another one? A teenager?
 
Yeah, I suppose that now that Jessie's dead, the kid can come outta hiding cuz he doesn't have to be afraid of him kicking his ass again.
 
I didn't know that anyone really cared about the Trickster in the first place.

I sure as heck didn't.

(Then again, I don't really "care" about any comic book character when you get right down to it...)
 
I always liked him. But I tend not to get to broken up over the deaths of fictional characters. I figure most don't know, cuz they dropped Countdown long ago.

Especially since they tend to come back at the drop of a hat.

So why the hell do you read comics and post on a message board for comics? :confused:
 
Because it's still illegal to hunt mimes for sport.
 
I'm afraid I don't really believe he is going to stay dead.
 
Maybe he wont. But by the looks of him, he's very dead at the moment.
 
He certainly is, on another note, I've actually been enjoying Countdown at the moment.

Guess the reason I don't rant about them killing Trickster, is it's actually provided the most entertainment from Countdown so far.

They're imaginary characters, man.

I don't cry when they "die". I don't get emotional about them.

Every comic book fan isn't like dude from The Simpsons.

Yeah it has. It's been really good for the last four weeks or so really.
 
Aww, I was hoping that if I didn't mention it, no one would notice.

Actually I think the Jimmy Olsen arc is still pretty returded and the whole Ray Palmer search still feels like the single biggest waste of time ever, although it has a tough contender in the Karate Kid/OMAC arc; what in the hell did the Legion have to do with OMAC that would make any of this even remotely relevant? Oh, that's right: nothing.

The Piper/Trickster arc, however, has stepped up by frakking leaps and farking bounds. Not only because the writing has noticeably improved, but also because out of everything, everything we've seen so far, it's the one arc where events have actually seemed to flow logically into each other and we get a payoff for a whole lot of what past issues have set up, believe it or not.

And who said they were? I don't cry when anyone dies either. But I do care about the characters, and the legacy and continuity that past creators have given them, though.

If you have no emotional attachment to the characters you read about every week, then you're wasting your time reading comics.

Like in any medium, movies, tv, novels, if you don't grow emotionally attached to the characters in any form, hate, love, care, hope they don't die, then that medium has failed you.

Be careful if you ever get caught in a mime field. Those suckers will put you in an invisible box and keep you there forever.
 
Did anybody get the Chronicles of Wormwood graphic novel? I hadn't heard anything about it, so when I saw it on the stands I assumed it was just the collection of the mini-series. But apparently it's a whole new original graphic novel. That I've missed. :(
 
It's pretty ****ing great. I actually liked it a lot more than the original series.

I put "care" in quotes for a reason. To parapharas you I enjoy the characters the legacy and continuty yaddayaddayadda.

But I never forget they are comics. I'm not that guy that cries over comics--and yes I've seen posters who say they have. I'm not that guy who takes the time to threaten comic creators because they did something I don't like with my favorite character like that Ron Marz thing years ago.

The things I care about are real.

If you have no emotional attachment to the characters you read about every week, then you're wasting your time reading comics.

Your opinion and you have a right to it.

I've been reading comics since I've been able to read. Not gonna stop. I like good stories and art, and variety in both.

Like in any medium, movies, tv, novels, if you don't grow emotionally attached to the characters in any form, hate, love, care, hope they don't die, then that medium has failed you.

We're just gonna have to disagree on that.
