Four Things In Previews That Make Me Happy
Diana Prince: Wonder Woman: The white jump-suit/I-Ching era of Wonder Woman is pretty universally panned for a reason. That being said, it does give us Wonder Woman fighting evil lesbian street gangs and, eventually, Samuel R. Delany.
New series Doctor Who comics...with Martha!
As glad as I am to see this, part of me wants to wait in hopes that the edition with the diorama and Near's figurines gets a US release.
Now, I have no intention of buying any of this crap...but I like that it exists. Because, as questionable as my taste can sometimes be, at least I can still feel smugly superior to Star Wars fans.
Four Things In Previews That Amuse Me
Lesbian Mini-Mates...I think I'll pose them next to my Hawkgirl, leaving Hawkman open for my Wildcat...
Well, that's quite a change in tone for this series...
Yes, I am entertained that the figure that was basically just a repainted Optimus Prime with new accessories is now a bust that's...just a repainted Optimus Prime bust. Of course, Transformers fans have shown a willingness to buy just about ANYTHING, so this also doesn't really surprise me.
At the rate the series is progressing, those "Parental Advisory" stickers on MPD-Psycho are just going to keep getting bigger and bigger.
Four Things In Previews That Confuse Me
Torchwood Magazine? From the people that give us all those cheesey licensed television show magazines that are low on content but high on merchandise ads? I'm having trouble picturing Torchwood as part of that crowd of shows...
A Japanese action figure of a female character...that's sensibly and modestly dressed? Can such things truly be? The cognitive dissonance of stumbling upon this item has forced me to go lie down for a bit...
"Toon" Buffy merchandise now...it really is just far past time to let Buffy go.
But, but, people keep telling me that manga is better than American comics because it's not sexist or misogynistic...did the blogerati lie to me?
Four Things In Previews That Appall Me
It's not so much the existence of a $40 piece of scrap metal that I find offensive...it's that there are people who will see this and say "Forty bucks? What a deal!"
No, seriously, fuck you Marvel.
Non porn comics based on porn performers...pathetisad.
