Re: BAD IDEA Eniac 1-4 Deal from Collector's Paradise (UPDATED)

Alright, will do. I do want to support a local store of course, but as I’ve heard nothing from them it started to concern me. It’s not my regular store, so I don’t know how competent/on top of things the staff are. Of course, Coronavirus and computer snafus are additional factors to consider, as you...

Re: BAD IDEA Eniac 1-4 Deal from Collector's Paradise (UPDATED)

I put in a request via the Bad Idea website to a local comic store, but it’s been over a week and no response, so I’ll be sending you a payment later today. Thanks for setting this up!

Re: BAD IDEA

Alright, I finally got a look @ the Bad Idea website and put in my pre-order for ENIAC (all 4). I like the premise, but I’m real curious how this computer flew the plane over Japan, opened the bomb-bay doors and dropped the bomb. I’ve been in a couple WW2 bombers and they’re not exactly built for co...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

They never paired up, but Byrne did draw the cover for #359, which is in the midst of PAD’s run. I was referring to all the tremendously talented artists who worked on the title from #300 up to the end of Vol. 1, which is about 30 issues prior to PAD’s start. As you’re probably aware, Byrne wrote &...

Re: The Market on Ultimate Fallout 4

Re: Miles Morales video game, Great trailer! At first glance, he looks several years older than his Spider-verse teen version. Could make for some interesting story-telling opportunities. I don’t follow the Spider-Man books these days; how old is Miles in the current books, roughly? I'm also a huge ...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

I have since worked my way up through re-reading most of Peter David’s run [snip] Overall it is an amazing string of legendary artists who worked on the title over this long stretch - check it; [snip] John Byrne It’s been a long time since I’ve dug through my PAD Hulks. Byrne worked with David on t...

Usually Dan Abnett is working on and writing several stories at a time.
And also writing novels. That’s how I know him; not from his work in comics but his many highly regarded novels for Black Library’s line about Warhammer 40,000. He’s their most popular author.

Re: Bloodshot available for digital download next week!

That's not Moffett Field ;) Ha! Well, you would certainly know. Lol. The dirigible hangars suuure look exactly like the ones that were there, including the partially deconstructed one, so you fooled me good. I knew it wasn’t 100% Moffett, as the water is too close and there are buildings that don’t...

Re: Bloodshot available for digital download next week!

Just finished watching it. I liked it! Pretty straight-forward story, but very fun. I’d heard some complaints about the CGI but it all seemed fine to me. One thing that cracked me up was the “Aviano Air Base” in “Italy” shown at 4min 15sec. That whole scene clearly takes place at Moffett Field in Mo...

Re: What video game are you currently playing?

Just started playing the D&D MMO, “Neverwinter” a couple days ago. So far, it’s been fun, but the reviews indicate that once you hit max level it becomes a play-to-win game. I’m not concerned. I’ll play through the 0-70 content and if it turns into a grind at some point, I’ll start a new character o...

Re: The Bloodshot movie...what would have happened

@3BMoose, not only is $45 million cheap, but a significant percentage of that had to go solely to Vin Diesel’s paycheck. I remember reading an article about what Disney pays their MCU stars (article came out around the release of A:Endgame) and the point of the article was that Disney is somewhat ch...
