    You are thinking of "DarkHold". Normally, I would say that Marvel made a stupid mistake in having two "dark"-themed series. But, "Dark Ages" was meant to be released last year.

    "Dark Ages"...

    I think that Billee was referencing when Spider-Man found his family alive as the tear-jerker.




    Blue Marvel is too obscure for a story like this.

    The more back-writes that a character has, the harder it is to say what is the "right" iteration. Wonder Woman has always had some connection to Greek bawdy gawds.

    I did not read (or even know about) the "Immortal Hulk" one-shot. (Gonna need to pick that one up tomorrow.)

    Did you see the two minute mark? Nia was reluctant to pick up Charlotte. (One of many oddities. But, this one stands out.)

    Interesting thread. Gonna ask my question (the reason I was going to post), then answer a few things.

    -any word on if the zero issue (from Free Comic Day 2020) is being re-issued? (I tossed...

    The question of who remembers what has never been consistently answered.

    Have read up to issue 5 (Nighthawk). For the most part, the tie-ins are better than the main event. While this is not unusual for a Marvel event, the main event being nearly unreadable while the...

    I have only read the first 2 issues and the Imperial Guard tie-in. I was really hoping that the polemics I noticed in issue 2 were Hyperion-specific. Based on this thread, I am thinking that I...

    Never played the game.

    But, I love the comics. For about a decade, the Taylor-written stuff has consistently been some of the smartest stuff DC has published. (My only real complaint is that I...

    Injustice 2 question

    The second volume of "Injustice 2" (Taylor/Redondo) skips issue 13 of the series. (It reprints "Injustice 2" 7-12, 14.)

    Does anyone know why issue 13 was not reprinted?

    Maybe it is a swerve for the sake of a swerve? It seems like somebody (likely trying to keep Vince happy) leaned all the wrong lessons from the 90s, and assumes that random "swerves" are more...

    I suspect that this is a question of WWE trying to be bigger, shinier and louder than AEW. "Smackdown" featured a cage-match a few weeks ago.

    AEW is not perfect. But, they have a sort of...

    Spacey was not convicted. The charges were likely false.




    Zimmerman was also acquitted.

    But, the main thing to consider is the other variables on that scale.
