Re: Your Top 10 Games Of All Time

Wow, it’s been close to TEN years since I last posted in this thread!! I saw ShadowTuga mention Hollow Knight above and I had to chime in - I love that game!!! I have not really had time to indulge in very many new games over the past decade, but I can probably add 5 new ones that I have enjoyed imm...

Yup :cloud9:

It doesn’t feel like it’s really happening. Never in my wildest dreams was I expecting to be able to get such a thing!

I’ll share here when I complete the layaway and have it in hand 8-)

Re: What are you collecting these days? I've gone Golden Age and subscribed to Marvel Unlimited

I find myself drifting away from collecting very many comics lately - for new books, I am mainly picking up just a few Image titles. Still reading new Shadowman but generally not excited about new Valiant. The only DC book I like right now is “The Nice House On The Lake”, which I think is only a min...

Re: Armorclads #1 (2022)

I'm still on the fence about trying this one. I can do without derivative crap... but you're kinda piquing my interest if theres actual VALIANT universe Spider Aliens making their VEI/VMG era debut!

Re: Bloodshot relaunching as mature reader book

Yes, that promo piece is by interior artist Jon Davis-Hunt (he also did the colors on this piece, but the colors on interiors will be by Jordie Bellaire) and no, this was not intended to be a Punisher homage... just something that lives up to the promise of the title! Well, make sure this will be o...

Shadowman is still the only current Valiant title that I enjoy and pick up every month. More of the same (or better)? Yes please! Hoping for a good A&A series too, I really...

Looks great and reads well! :thumb: :thumb:

Is any of that material making it into your contributions to the Overstreet Lost Universe book coming out this month?

Also, I’m mildly surprised that RAI #0 or Eternal Warrior #4 didn’t quite make that list of most commonly submitted CGC issues!

Re: There’s a new Archer & Armstrong series…does anyone care?

I’m interested and will definitely give this a chance - although it always makes me groan when the high concept of a “fresh take” on an established series involves taking away a key piece of the high concept and acting like that’s going to be something clever. Kind of like the Matt Kindt take on XO ...

Finally made time to read this latest issue. I enjoyed it well enough - I’m interested in seeing where this ‘Deadside Loa’ concept goes. A Loa that seems to draw its power from the souls of the multitudes of every single entity that inhabits it is a very powerful being, indeed - and that is a pretty...

I recently acquired the last Amazing Spider-Man *softcover* Masterworks trade that I was missing to complete the set of 8 (I much prefer the soft covers rather than the hardcover MM editions). While I wish they had continued making more of those, it’s enough to kick off a massive read-a-thon that I’...
