According to their copyright information, these are the actual titles of the first four trade collections of the current Hercules series from Marvel:
- Hulk: WWH–Incredible Herc
- Incredible Hercules: Against the World
- Secret Invasion: Incredible Hercules
- Incredible Hercules: Love & War
So, depending on how they’re stocked in the store, the books could be in either one place on the shelves, or three different places. It goes without saying that there are of course no volume numbers on the spines or covers of these books.
And it’s hardly as if Hercules is the only Marvel series to be titled in such an…idiosyncratic way for the collected editions.
Why, it’s almost as if Marvel, after all these years, is continuing to treat their trade paper-back program as a half-assed after-thought instead of a genuine revenue stream…
I apologize for the link to Ain’t It Cool News, but the video clip in question doesn’t make sense without the context. So go take a quick look and then come back.
This is the line that I want to take issue with:
But the following clip has one of the coolest sound effect mixed with an action that I’ve seen in a really long time.
Yeah, about that sound mix…it’s about as close an approximation of the “Biff”, “Bam”, “Pow”, “Wowee” sounds of the 60s Batman live-action show that I’ve ever heard. Insert some graphics over the action, and it pretty much is the 60s Batman tv show.
But was purposefully camp then, I’m being expected to take seriously now.
There’s something very wrong with that.
