Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

So after activation you get a series of downloads (you read that right... a series of them) including a license keyed to your name (WTF? These are comic books, dude), some reader program that I've never heard of from the friggin' UK, I don't even know what half this crap is. This is so ridiculous I ...

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

I used Google Street View to find the address for GITCorp's office, and it appears to be run out of someone's home. The original releases from years back were so good. In some cases, it was clear that they were doing quality scans of lower condition back issues, but nothing that interfered with rea...

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

I remember this, and we did talk about it on the FB page a little bit. Mainly though, it didn't affect many people. That, and it warned others to stay away. This went down how long ago? Several months, right? The cancellation of the $90 collection went down in December, but the shipments of the Blo...

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

So let me get this straight... you're paying $20 for 159 comics, and you're complaining that it's not DRM free? Shouldn't you just be happy to get a ridiculous amount of comics for a ridiculously cheap price? And what does this have to do with the Facebook group? You didn't get it straight. Instead...

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

DRM, much like Facebook, is the devil. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk It is man, but this is such a pile of nonsense.

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

My big problem (in addition to what's already been mentioned here), is that I tried to take a screen shot of a panel to swipe out some new dialogue and replace it with something funny (basically, just do something fannish to share with other fans), and found that the protection DOES NOT LET YOU SCR...

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

Dude, their Marvel & Archie releases were simply PDF's on a nice DVD-Rom. This is a disaster. it's such nonsense I don't even want to email them to activate the collection. I am SO f'n *SQUEE* off.

My background in Law Enforcement taught me that much. Bro, and my background in law enforcement taught that not everything needs to be administered. That's how you stay on regulation and avoiding power trips. My point? Just relax and treat it more like a fan thing - don't be so Draconian unless you...

The bleeding cool article should have run the story about the communist rules over at that group. And how this ban is more of that bs. I'm glad to hear you say this.

Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

I am very curious to see how this is going to work out. I'm interested in it. I think it's a novel approach, and in some ways (I know, I keep coming back to this, but I mean it organically, I swear) it's a variation on the modified distribution model that Future Comics tried some time back now. I th...

Shouldn't there be a folder for Bad Idea stuff, specially considering tomorrow's announcement? Just like the FB group, this place will have to decide how to properly funnel the Bad Idea messaging out there, and I think it's own folder will keep the members here for some time, without getting in the...

This may be an ignorant question since I have never been to any of these big comicons..... but what are the chances of Vin Diesel going to any of these to help promote the movie? ...possibly giving people chances of signatures on their Bloodshot comics?

I've already got feelers out, and the first news I'm hearing is some places will want $75-$100 for these. Seems kind of steep if you ask me. I've talked to Brian Wells, and he stated that these will be sold on Sony's site, and will (more than likely) be much cheaper. Movie poster values ebb and flo...
