This month's LootCrate was here and... it was disapointing. Like I've been okay with every other LootCrate but this one? Ugh. This month's theme was Covert, and we got two count them two actual items from well known brands. James Bond and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. No Archer, no Austin Powers, no Metal Gear Solid. Nothing. So I'm disappointed. As for the most useful thing in this crate the watch, seeing as how I didn't happen to have a watch before I do now. And the Spy themed Mad Libs, but that's mainly because I absolutely adore Mad Libs. Here's hoping next months is better.

No on to better news! The podcast is recording tomorrow! And I've established the name for it too: Piled High Comics: A Comic and Geek Culture Podcast. Unless someone else happens to have a better name by chance? But the reason I'm posting this is well I don't know where Cosmo is so it'll only be myself and my best friend in real life. So I'd actually appreciate not one but two other guest cohosts. If you'd like to be a permanent one however please feel free to message me! I'm willing to take on people with little comic knowledge so as to have them ask the questions other people may not know and are wondering too. I'd try to explain each comic as well and pitch it to you if you might be interested in picking comics up soon. We'd also move on to video games eventually probably about half way through the podcast too. If you'd like to do it with me please just message me and I'll give you my Skype, and we can talk more about it. I'm hoping for a 3PM Central Time to record but I'm still waiting on a definitive time so we'll see!









Solar Pony Django’s Bi-Weekly Comic Book Roundup for the Weeks of: 3/04/15 and 3/11/15

 

Note: The bi-weekly comic book roundup is for comics that I personally picked up during these two weeks since I don’t have enough money for all the comics that come out since there is a wide selection. Got a comic you did read that I missed? Talk about it in the comments and share your thoughts and feelings on it. I also only briefly talk about each comic, so as to raise awareness for them and see which ones you may be most interested in.

So still looking for a co-host, for the comic podcast, I do plan to start recording next Saturday for this first episode I know I have one for sure and if we get more people from there that works for me! I’m also thinking of naming it Piled High Comics: A Comic and Geek Culture Podcast, since I’d like to talk about games as well. What do you guys think?

I also wanted to give a short little mention to Sonic Super-Sized Comics Digest because there’s a short little 5 page comic that hasn’t been available before that shows off Sally a little bit more. It mainly happens to be a collection of comics that I’ve (for the most part) covered before. There’s a few that started right before I started this but it’s a roundup and not new comics. Still they’re a decent way to catch up on them if you’re interested.

Fables – The Wolf Among Us #3:

I’m really trying to not go into the story for this one since it goes with the game as well and at that point I’m kind of ruining the experience of 2 things and don’t want to do that. However what I DO want to discuss is that for when certain characters died because of your play through of the game it’s interesting to see them survive and see the other side of the story you didn’t get to see. So I have been enjoying that as well as the extras that have been included in the issues, but it does still feel a bit like a rehashing. Still, it’s interesting enough if you liked the game to give it a go.

Howard the Duck #1:

This week we also have the introduction of a new comic! I’d heard about the previous Howard the Duck comics and his brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy was enough to intrigue me. We even have a reference to that on the cover! Look at Howard’s filing cabinet. Even with his movie in the 90’s I was pretty interested in him.

Yeah that scene was weird… and I think it’s technically safe to post since it’s a PG rated movie? I mean if not, I’ll take edit it.

Anyways with Howard the Duck we see him getting out of jail right away and out of place, he was somehow teleported to Earth, he gets to talking with one of the other inmates and starts to become friends with her. We also see that his office is right next door to She-Hulks office (what?) and that a certain man is trying to get back a necklace from Black Cat. So Howard calls up Spider-Man (after intentionally pissing off She-Hulk (risky move) to get her to leave her office so he can steal Spideys number. Well done getting away with it. I did notice a slight problem with one of the scenes however. A continuation error if you will, one scene Howards wearing his hat, next scene he isn’t (not knocked off by anything) scene after that he’s wearing his hat again. Tara and Howard have a montage after his meeting with Spidey, since Tara knows where Black Cat lives but Spidey wouldn’t tell them. They have a literal training montage aftterwards.

This series is already weird but I love it, they then have a bizarre as hell plan to get into Black Cat’s apartment that I won’t tell so as to at least have some kind of mystery and get people interested. Afterwards Howard’s on the run from Black Cat after a Collector… well collects Howard. And that’s when he meets Rocket Raccoon. In space jail being hustled away to be part of a collection. That’s also where it ends.

My Little Pony – Friends Forever #14:

With this issue it’s the team up that I never knew I wanted! It’s Spike and Princess Luna! The reason that we have this team up is because FillyDelphia is having fires and no one knows why. Naturally since Spike is a dragon, they call him in to invest because well he’s a dragon. They also wanted him since FillyDelphia also has a dragon populace so they’re suspected naturally. Spike gets to meet with a slightly older dragon that’s cute and will possibly be seen later in the comic series. She’s also a fan girl for Princess Luna, how convenient for Spike that he knows her. Racial tensions rise, turns out it wasn’t the dragons at all and everybody should be trusted, the same lesson they’ve been harping on for a while in the comics. They do this in the show too but not nearly to this extent I feel. Still it was cute, and we find out that it was a Fire Snail that’s been burning houses down.

Sonic The Hedgehog #270:

We get a little more backstory on Breezie again, with Metal Sonic having built Casino Park for her as part of his Sonic Heroes plan. We also get to see a lot more battles; in fact the majority of this issue is fight, after fight, after fight. Which isn’t a problem, should’ve expected it since Worlds Unite starts in 3 issues. I was also wrong on my guess as well, Sonic did not transform for his fight. Yet, we’ll see if that changes. Bean and Nack face off, with Bean winning but since Nack’s the boss Bean losses to Nack so as to make himself look good. We get Amy versus Knuckles and she just gets obliterated, partially due to Amy overthinking it. Completely actually, as she’s worried that Knuckles will get hurt and is focusing on that after the bell has rung. So Knuckles takes her out with one hit. Honey and Sonic fight and Honey’s just as cheap as ever! Color me unimpressed with this character, cheap tactics are not something that amuses me. Sonic does win however, and we get a brief slew of ads back before we’re back to the fights. We see that Breezie also has her own video game company, movie company, and her own TV station. She’s doing pretty well for herself! Knuckles then fights off against Nack and Nack is completely wrecked. Nack goes in thinking he’ll fool Knuckles because HA HA KNUCKLES YOU SO STOOPID! But Knuckles was luring Nack into a false safety and grabs him and smashes him similar to how the Hulk did Loki. We then see Nack and crew preparing themselves to interfere with the final fight between Sonic and Knuckles so as to steal the Chaos Emerald. I don’t typically talk about off panels (one shot three panel comics) but this one deserves a special mention as it references JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure! However I can’t seem to find it online so you’ll have to buy the issue.

Sonic Boom #05:

I’m hoping that after Worlds Unite Sonic Boom will develop into an actual story, for the moment though I understand. 8 issues until you plan a big comic crossover you need to establish characters. And that’s exactly what they’re doing, I just like actual story.

This issue’s mainly devoted to Eggman getting into shenanigans so as to have people trust him again, as you can probably guess that doesn’t pan out. You are kinda the bad guy after all Eggman, causing trouble to the islanders for years won’t help. It’s cute though, and I do enjoy it enough. Eggman then makes an amusement park based off of Oktoberfest. And I’m not joking on that. But I actually like that because when else will you see Eggman in lederhosen? Eggman eventually decides to go full evil again and Sonic and friends stop him. However someone suggests that he wants to buy a Go-Kart which gives Eggman his next idea. And it seems like we’ll get at least a small story in next issue since it says part 1! So I’m just here complaining sounding like a fool when my complaints already been addressed.

Spider-Man 2099 #10:

We have Spidey and Strange 2099 team up while Maestro and his Minister make a scheme; they both get out and sneak around until they come to Maestro’s collection room. And he has a lot in his collection, Spider-Man, Thor, Magneto, Wolverine, Iron-Man, all kinds of relics in there. Including a time machine that Maestro has never figured out how to get to work. Strange is stabbed by an invisible Maestro because he has a magic cloak that lets him do that. Spidey 2099 blasts Maestro with a super charged Iron-Man blast that looks like it does some damage but he is Future Hulk so nothing will keep him down for long. That dagger also was a special dagger that didn’t kill Strange but instead made it so she was under control of something else working for him. Spidey goes back to his own time and Maestro also uses the time machine to go back to December 25th, New Mexico, not sure of the year however.

Spider-Woman #005:

We find out that Spider-Woman hasn’t exactly… been on the ball lately with her super hero duties as she interrupts a demonstration for the Police on how to take out a super powered villain if it comes to it and is then thrown into jail. Which she doesn’t appreciate since she didn’t technically do anything wrong they can’t pin anything on her, they can however post a video of what she did online to humiliate her which is pretty stupid. She does get a hint however as that something, not sure as to what is going on and she initially decides she’s just not interested in it. As we continue on however we do see that, something is indeed going on as she meets one of the people that was mentioned in the report and decides why not, may as well investigate. The person the linked her in to this also gives a creepy smile one he finds out. Either foreshadowing or just cocky that he knew she’d do that, not sure yet.

Amazing Spider-Man #016:

While looking this issue up I actually want to discuss one other thing real quick. Apparently Spider-Man One More Day will not be cannon any longer soon! Which I know to a lot of Spider fans that will make them happy, however since I came in after One More Day I have no opinion myself. Boy it would be nice if I had a podcast I could talk about this stuff in instead… Which I am still working on and if things go according to plan first episode will be recorded Saturday.

Anyways… with this issue we see Peter facing off against a reptile man who I don’t think is the Lizard? Unless he’s changed? Man… I feel behind on this. But we have Pete being late to his very important business meeting again unfortunately and Sajani bitches him out, and is a rather unpleasant character overall, which I’d forgotten about due to Spider-Verse. We then see Pete presenting his plans for the Super-Villain Jail he’s working on building and we also see that Alchemax is playing… cheating. They’re cheating. Hiring a hitman to hit Parker Industries. We also get a bit of back story for Black Cat what she’s been up to lately.

Spider-Gwen #2:

We find out that Gwen did in fact survive her drop, not quite as gracefully as she could’ve unfortunately since she wakes up with what could quite possibly be a concussion. Well she has an imaginary Spider-Ham right next to her talking to her throughout the entire issue which is great, she did a pair of mini web wings instead of a Web-Chute though so that’s why she hurt herself rather than landing smoothly. We see the police are trying to find out who Spider-Gwen is, but she got lucky, she had lost her phone but her dad picked it up saving her butt. We also see a brief reunion with the Mary Jane’s crowd which doesn’t go over well and they’re gone almost instantly. I’m thinking they’ll come into play later they just haven’t yet, we do get to see that this Daredevil represents King Pin which I don’t remember if he did in regular Earth, which I doubt. Seeing as we find out that he’s a bad guy here. Looking for Gwen, this probably won’t end well.

We see everyone thrown into a lake, not sure why however as we didn’t get anything leading into it. However no one dies and they continue on we see a secret Hydra base leading Scientists and such inside to conduct research on something we don’t know quite yet. However since its Hydra, they’re pretty brutal and if they see any sign of weakness people are quickly killed off. We also possibly see a mutant? Not quite sure yet but I’m sure will be explained more. They manage to find the ship they were looking for that blasted everything but didn’t kill anyone somehow and once Howard Stark puts the orb in that he found the ship blasts off. Straight toward the Hydra base! And that’s where it ends, so we’ll have to find out what happens next time!

Future’s End #44:

Here we have Future’s End very quickly and efficiently knock Brainiac on his ass with just one hit, however he would’ve gotten back up if it wasn’t for Palmers coming along with Brother Eye and shrinking him down. However, no one is taking care of Brainiacs lifting machine however so it’s now falling down since no one is controlling it. SuperMan takes it upon himself and lifts it by himself, pretty impressive.

Future’s End #45:

Frankenstein finally dies in this one, unfortunately since he’s a pretty interesting character. However I’m guessing he’ll come back, seeing as how Brother Eye had him under his control later, but maybe the timeline has changed already. Then we have damage control with SuperMan taking care of it and SuperMan throws Brainiacs device into the sun. We also see the previous group that was taking the Earth 2 Super Heroes and boxing them in preparing for something, some kind of Apocalypse. Don’t have to wait too long to see what he referred to though as Brother Eye has taken over now that he’s been allowed in! Because no one saw that coming even with Terry warning Bruce! Great Jorb! Speaking of Terry, he’s on his way to Brother Eye now but happens to have some… problems in front of him seeing as Brother Eye has already taken over quite a few people under his control.

Solar Pony Django’s Bi-Weekly Comic Book Roundup for the Weeks of: 2/18/15 and 2/25/15

 

Note: The bi-weekly comic book roundup is for comics that I personally picked up during these two weeks since I don’t have enough money for all the comics that come out since there is a wide selection. Got a comic you did read that I missed? Talk about it in the comments and share your thoughts and feelings on it. I also only briefly talk about each comic, so as to raise awareness for them and see which ones you may be most interested in.

So once again I’m a bit late… by a bit I mean terribly late, sorry about that! Real life gets in the way sometimes and with my wedding coming up we had a couple of things come up, a birthday party, my best man came into town for three days to hang out as well and that derailed my train as well (not his fault of course). Speaking of my best man, I’m still looking for a podcast cohost if you’re interested! My best man from real life Ra, has shown interest so I think that’s one and Cosmontropolis as well but I haven’t seen him for a few days. But if you are interested hit up the comments! Be you new, veteran or in-between I’m interested, as I want this podcast to appeal to everyone not just comic book diehards. Also! What do you guys think of the name Piled High Comics: A Comic and Geek Culture Podcast?

Fables 149:

So… uh… well Fables is ending! I wish I’d gotten into this series sooner due to the fact that I only just started last issue, and it ends next issue. And I have little to no clue what’s happening still! But I am buying the collections as they come out, I probably won’t cover those just due to the sheer amount of content in each one but… I could on the podcast. Anyways in this issue we see a few more details that Snow White & Briar Rose are part of the cursed line that while one of them lives neither of them can truly be at peace. Other things happen that I don’t understand since as I said only have two of these that I know but apparently Bigby Wolf isn’t dead (big surprise) but is Rose’s agent as of this moment, which she has complete trust in will keep him on her side. We’ll see because I’m predicting that either it won’t work or after Bigby kills Snow White will go mad with rage and get Briar Rose as well. But I could be completely wrong!

Mega Man 46:

In this issue Mega Man faces off against Proto Man (Break Man) and beats him with a well-aimed shot, he also tries to convince Blues (man he has a lot of names doesn’t he?) that Dr.Light does love him and wasn’t trying to replace him when he made Mega Man. Mega Man also decides to not kill him because well… that’s what Mega Man does, he shows sympathy and like Dr.Light tries to see the good in all people. It’s why he saved all the Mega Man 3 Robot Master chips so they could be rebuilt. Proto Man also blows a hole in the ground because there’s a sewer system that’s easier than the front door, and we just kind of glance over the first Wily Fortress boss and continue directly onto a cliffhanger with Yellow Devil Mk.2

Sonic Universe 73:

We find out that Dr.Ellidy was partially holding on to a secret but it wasn’t to terribly bad, we see a person that looks strikingly similar to Nicole due to the fact that it’s Dr.Ellidy’s daughter Nikki who passed away and Nicole was supposed to save her. We also find out the reason they were acting so negatively was Gaia Energy throwing off their mojo’s. Nicole finds the intruder known as Phage and surprise surprise it’s from Robotnik. Sally digitizes in to try and help Nicole against Phage while she sends Tails and Big off to get the Chaos Emerald in the lake. While all of Robotnik’s creations and Dark Gaia monsters are after them.

Uncanny Avengers 002:

In this issue everyone gets beat the hell up, the High Evolutionary as he’s called destroys the entire race he’s created since they’re imperfect, Sabertooth of all people tell him the blood never washes off. Well he is reformed. He also gets his veins removed from him quite painfully, and he’s still alive somehow. Rogue is still locked up and Scarlet Witch and Quick Silver just woke up from being knocked out and they supposedly have a sister called Luminose. So things are just getting started! Dr.VooDoo tries to confront the dead and Captain America makes a brief appearance as a tree.

Amazing X-Men 017:

In this issue we have a big showdown with the X-Men trying to fight all the bad guys that want the Jewel of Cytorrak but shouldn’t get it because the X-Men want to destroy it before it can be used for evil. Has it ever not been used to evil? Also Cain Marko is pissed as fuuuuudge when he makes his appearance since one of the X-Men killed Professor X. Cain Marko also wants to destroy the gem but nope. Not that easy Ahmet Abdol gets his hands on it, and I have no idea who that is! But I’m sure we’ll find out next issue.

Amazing Spider-Man 015:

So… this issue got weird… we found out the Master Weaver is a future version of Karn so that’s a thing, we also get Doc Ock Spider-Man being an asshole and cutting all the threads that held them all together only because he doesn’t want to be eliminated from time. Sounds like something Doc Ock would do, Peter Parker also gets some pretty funny lines in such as when Ock calls him a coward for outnumbering him. Even though he was the one that founded the Sinister Six, we also get Peter to tell Doc that he is not the Superior Spider-Man but Peter is. It’s amusing because of how cocky Doc Ock is. We also get to see that the Inheritors will be eating the mutated spiders so as to stay alive, UK Spider-Man’s world is gone. Destroyed. Don’t know how as of this moment. Also Karn appears to not be dead! So that’s good at least.

Spider-Man 2099 009:

For this issue we get questions. Lots and lots of questions. How did Miguel O’Hara not arrive in the right time line? Why is Maestro (Future Hulk) king of everything? Why is everything in shambles? What did Alchemax do to create this future? Oh and Maestro’s a messed up sunuvabitch, killing people and rearranging them as words to spell out his name. But yeah aside from us establishing that Miguel O’Hara is not where he belongs not that much happens, lots of Miguel trying to figure things out but hasn’t quite yet.

Silk 001:

Silk faces off against her first foe who is hired by Black Cat, Dragonclaw is his name although he keeps getting called a Pokemon, she has some job problems and Silk is wanting to find her family. They also have a scene that I’m… uncomfortable with… I won’t go into it but I am glad it shouldn’t happen again since Silk moved out of where she was living. Someone’s tracking her but we don’t know whom as of yet and Dragonclaw gets beaten pretty handily early on. That doesn’t mean he’s out quite yet since some foreshadowing is involved. It looks like it should be pretty intriguing of a series so here’s hoping!

Spider-Gwen 001:

The unfortunate thing with new issues of things is that they tend to set up a lot of things but don’t go very far with them. But that’s alright as long as they answer them eventually, they need to build the world, just makes it harder to write about them sometimes. If you remember Gwen got the powers and not Parker, Parker is also dead now quite unfortunately so… that’s great, she’s also blamed for that. Gwen’s also been avoiding her father like the plague, probably due to the fact the he’s the Chief of Police and she’s wanted at the moment, might cause a conflict of interests. Gwen’s band The Mary Janes is having a falling out of sorts, as this Mary Jane is very self-centered. We’re also left on a cliff hanger with her first villain battle against her version of The Vulture, I wonder if we’ll see some exclusive villains for Gwen as well? I understand their will be familiar villains because of the Spider connection but it would make sense for variants as well right?

Future’s End 42 & 43:

Lots and lots of fighting in these ones! Which makes sense since Brainiac is unleashing a full on assault, Palmers made it inside Brainiac though without being atomized (hue hue hue) as it originally looked like. Terry makes it look like he’s about to be finished but Alfred is back online and those orbs that are coming whizzing past make a useful weapon if you can plan where the next one will land. Palmers also saves Engineer again, because that won’t have bad repercussions later. Still… it did make it so Brainiac has to manually lift Manhattan up as opposed to things being super easy for him. Plastique’s robot double shows up and almost kills Plastique as well as Terry, we also find out that the Batker hybrid isn’t dead even with that hitting him. We get a hint that the world has already changed at least a little bit however since the Plastique bot isn’t quite sure what to do with Plastique. Unless It just determined it couldn’t kill Plastique because then it would cease to exist. It’s still not looking hunky dorey quite yet but that’s what the next couple of issues will clear up. Or make worse! Maybe this whole thing was something that couldn’t be prevented! Which would rustle my jimmies a bit.

So I was going to have everyone listed as a pony for my top 9 but I figured that would annoy people so I decided to change it up a bit. Instead everyone just gets a random groove to go along with them as my music playlist plays. It doesn't have anything to do with anyone but I figured it would be a fun little thing to do. I won't be listing any staff members because how can you compete with the likes of Occams, Andy, Holmes, Chris Carter, Mike, and a whole slew of amazing staff members including Papa Niero of course. I'm going to list a couple of honorable mentions a little bit differntly as we go along too so they get some mention. I should also mention that where you are on the list doesn't matter. I love all of you so it's just there because it has to.

Honorable mention:

DanteKinkade:

That's right. I actually have Never Gonna Give You Up in my iTunes list. Bought it and everything.

Anyways, I've only just gotten to know Dante recently actually (I'm not sure if he's new or I've just never noticed him, either is possible due to the fact I can be pretty damned oblivious on occasion.) Either way he's a pretty decent guy, I don't always agree with him on everything to be honest (Bayonetta waves hello) but he's honestly a pretty decent fellow and that's good enough for me, although on occasion he does make me uncomfortable (as I'm sure I do as well) but he's a damned good person.

#9 Favorite Dtoider:

GajKnight and Dreamweaver!

Now honestly I could write a seperate slot for these two because I like both of them a lot. But you just can't split up Chris Carter's children like that! That would be unethical.

As many have said Dream is honestly a fun guy just to talk to in the first place, he's nice, witty and he helps out the community quite a fair amount. When you need someone to talk to he'll listen and his mind is pretty open and willing to talk about anything which is pretty cool. His blogs are great and he puts a lot of thought into each one that he writes.

Gajknight's also a pretty decent guy Kingdom Hearts fan and all (I kid, I kid) he's honestly also pretty open and willing to talk and also gives some pretty great anime suggestions. He's a guy that's just fun to talk with and hope I get to talk to him more, don't always get that opportunity.

Honorable Mention:

Calty Slitorius

Calty's one that I haven't talked with much myself, but his blogs are in particular really quite great to read when he does them and really fun, I've also seen his comments around and he's pretty funny there too.

#8 Favorite Dtoider:

The Kodu

This is one I actually expect a few people to raise an eyebrow over but no really. I like Kodu. The way he writes his blogs spelling mistakes and all really speak to me and he seems to for the most part check his research before he posts. He tries to find information for anything that he posts rather than only slinging shit. The way he presents his blogs for the most part I tend to agree with even though I'm staying out of that whole deal he presents on. I also think that he actually gets a little bit of a hard time from everyone but that overall he's a pretty decent guy.

Honorable Mention:

It's About to Get Gay In Here

Ah IATGGIH. How we all love your delightful satire blogs, with just a spark of truth to them but with a whole lot of fun in them too. But more than that your comments seem to be pretty truthful as well, I've had a few interactions with him and he's a pretty decent guy. Wouldn't mind getting to know him more which seems like a pretty common theme.

#7 Favorite Destructoider:

Nekrosys

(Picture is outdated as of 20 seconds ago)

Ah Nekro. I think I'd talked to you before the infamous Nekrosys's sexy harem but since then I've seemed to talk to you more and more about various things. Haven't actually brought up the post apocolypic Harem in a while but is the way jokes go on occasion. Discussing America's and Australlia's stupid ratings for games, movies anything for completely different reasons Australlia being to strict America not enforcing it nearly enough. Talks of anime, games pretty much anything that catches our fancy, you helped out a lot during when I worked overnights and had no one to talk to since I was by myself so I do appreciate that a lot. You got me into Panty and Stocking and I'm sure other animes you've suggested I need to get into. Which I will. After I have a job again. Hard to purchase anime otherwise.

Honorable Mention:

Goofier Brute

Goofier Brute. I've talked to him here and there and enjoyed him, my honorable mentions should be more so yeah I've talked to him once or twice. He seemed pleasant. Wouldn't mind talking to him again. That being said Goof makes some funny comments and I ususally just take a while to warm up to people sometimes so I lurk more so than talk.

#6 Favorite Destructoider:

Zyk

Ah Zyk the Australlian also known as a Phil clone. OR IS HE? Is it not actually Mentok the Mindtaker taking your mind and making you think that he's a Phil clone?!?!

(Gosh I hope that was funny. Was supposed to be funny. I'm not always funny)

Only he knows. But one things for certain, Zyk is a pretty good guy who I've also recently started talking with more, although I've noticed him for a while now. At first I think we got off on the wrong foot back in an Anita Sarkeesian article (everyone can get off on the wrong foot in those articles am I right?) of course I could be mistaken about this. The internet's a pretty hard place sometimes. But seeing Nekro and Zyk talk about Australlian things is pretty amusing as well honestly and the more I talk to Zyk the more I like him. I dunno what it is about him maybe he's just a swell guy or maybe he's mindtaking. Who knows? Either way he's fun!

Honorable Mention:

Operative 20

Operative 20

I actually have had a fair amount of conversations with and that's why I wanted to include him. I've mainly talked to in private message about getting him a Rosalina amiibo and then we just started talking about things from there. I still haven't talked with him that much as of yet which that's why he in honorable mentions but from the times I have talked with him he's been a lot of fun honestly!

#5 Favorite Destructoider:

sonic429

Oh hello awkward song. How about an awkard live performance to go with it?

Sonic's one of those guys that I really like talking to, we don't agree on everything in fact we discuss a lot of things we don't. But that's what I like about him. He's not an asshole about it, he states his side not trying to push you to his side but just try to have him understand why he prefers something more. Such as preferring an Xbone over a PC and a multitude of other things, but as I said we do agree on a lot as well we both like Sonic and a fair share of Nintendo games. He's a great guy and his comments and blogs are worth a read as well, it's always fun to talk to him knowing the worst you'll get is a little bit of trolling to make a joke. And that's mainly only when you deserve it. Usually.

Honorable Mention:

Reinhold Hoffman

No matter what he says, no matter how many Psycho Punches he pulls, Reinhold Hoffman will always be M. Bison to me. Although he likes to troll... a fair amount, for the most part it's in good fun. When you actually get something out of him that isn't trolling such as amiibotoid, Destinytoid or such he can actually be pretty fun to talk to. If you look at his blogs you notice that as well, he seems to have a deep love for people's art which I can respect as well.

#4 Favorite Destructoider:

SUPAHGAMUH

Supah is actually someone that I've recently started conversing with more, I've seen him around plenty before but only recently has it seemed our paths have been interconnecting. Which is nice, from what I've gathered we seem to share a lot of the same interests and he's nice as well as funny. Seems to be a running list as well.

Honorable Mention:

Heracles the Whorsebane MMV

Heracles the Whoresbane MMV. He's a guy that can make you laugh pretty easily with his musings, an all around good guy and funny.

Favorite Destructoider #3:

Keiichi Morsiato

Honestly I don't know that much about Keiichi but what I do know about him is that he's a pretty decent guy. Just from what he's told all of us has made me feel closer to him because he's a pretty swell guy, nice and interesting to talk to. He's also another anime fan which that's always fun to talk about and all around a good guy.

Honorable Mention:

AlphaDeus

Honestly how can someone not talk about Alpha? He goes out of his way to make music that's based on us for us for free. Or you can give him a donation on his bandcamp page and help him out: https://alphadeus.bandcamp.com/

But really that takes a lot of time, effort and skill to make music and as I said he just does it because he loves it. For no other reason and that? That's really cool. Plus he's pretty generous and helpful.

Favorite Destructoider #2:

Cannibal Steven

Cannibal Steven is someone I've really enjoyed talking to as well as reading his blogs. He reels you in with the feels and teaches you more about himself all while interconnecting the story he's trying to tell. He likes commenting on other peoples blogs as well and giving his insight which I really appreciate, as do most of the people I've mentioned before now but that doesn't make what Steven does any less fun or impressive.

Honorable Mention:

JawshButterBalls

For giving us one of my favorite running gags on Destructoid that's actually funny unlike something that's gold or white... and for being a guy that's just fun to chat with about anything and everything (although let's face it most of the time it's pokemon) In fact maybe you should write a top 9 Sexiest Gardevoir Dtoiders list. Would fit with your theme quite well.

Favorite Destructoider #1:

Everyone else. It's a cop out. So sue me. But it's true, there is so many other people to list that would talk a while to talk about them, Luna Sy, Shade, Luck Required, Fenriff, all the staff members, Cold William, FlanxLyncath. All of you. All the community is what makes Destructoid what it is. A big dysfunctional but loveable family that sometimes fights but we get over it quickly, we do have a loveable black Grandma that fixes a lot and is a blast with her various bands after all. So thank you. I'm glad to know each and every one of you and can't imagine Destructoid without any of you. Even the one's I didn't have time for <3.

So I have decided to go through with my idea of a comic podcast and create a comic podcasts, but it will surely delve into video games on occasion and possibly other things. That being said I would like to keep it at least 50% comics, that is the point of me starting this in the first place after all, would be silly otherwise. I'd kind of like the podcast to be a possible introduction to people thinking of getting into comics, as well as expanding comic fans knowledge about comics and possibly intriguing them into other comics they may not have thought about.

On a side note the weekly comic blog should be done by Wednesday. I'd have it done today but I have another blog that's going up tomorrow first and I know we're not supposed to post more than one blog per day. So I won't!

However I think I need the Destructoid community's help a little on two things first. Number 1: What the hell should I call it? I thought about Comictoid and nope. Taken. By Destructoid actually! So that was fine but now I'm trying to think of something clever and I just can't at the moment. So that's where I'm looking at you kid.

So I need help on that but I need help on two other aspects as well.

The second thing I need help on is more cohosts. I have one and I think Cosmontropolis would work really well actually so he's included. However I'd like to have one more Dtoider as a full time host bringing it up to 4 (I forgot to mention I'll be having one of my friends as a host as well most likely) and I'd like to have a rotating host. Possibly three or four other people from Destructoid interested in comics that way it could spice up the comics a bit since otherwise we'd most likely be talking about the same one's each week so I think this would be a good way to keep it fresh.

The third thing is could I get some advice from other people on Destructoid that have made podcasts?  I'm looking into it myself but figured the best way to get this started would be to get advice from people here on Destructoid, how do you record, what do you recommend using for voice communication between people, what software do you use to format it. Things like that, so honestly any and all help on that subject would be greatly appreciated.

So hopefully with your guys help I can find an additional cohosts, a rotation of cohosts, a name and some podcast advice. Any and all help is great! Thanks so much guys!

 









Solar Pony Django’s Bi-Weekly Comic Book Roundup for the Weeks of: 2/4/15 and 2/11/15

 

Note: The bi-weekly comic book roundup is for comics that I personally picked up during these two weeks since I don’t have enough money for all the comics that come out since there is a wide selection. Got a comic you did read that I missed? Talk about it in the comments and share your thoughts and feelings on it. I also only briefly talk about each comic, so as to raise awareness for them and see which ones you may be most interested in.

Before we begin I’d first like to apologize for this one in particular taking so long, but the reason for that is I’ve been particularly busy. My fiancée had jaw surgery where they cut open her upper jaw so as to realign it to properly be in line with her bottom jaw. I haven’t had access to a computer much these past few days and I left my comics at home so as to not damage them. Second point of business, I’ve been toying with the idea of turning this into a podcast, and wasn’t sure if other people might be interested. It would still give access to all the comics that I round-up and the ability to talk with others, however the other good point of this would be to give access to other comics that I don’t read and other parts of the community does. So I’d love to get two permanent cohosts and possibly rotate the fourth out with a few different people so if anyone’s interested just drop a line.

I’ve also been dealing with personal problems as well one I can talk about and one I plan to talk about at a later point due to the circumstances. For the other point though during when my school is actually in session I tend to get a lot more nervous and self-doubting, worrying I won’t do well on my grades and that I’ll fail. Which then leads to me playing video games so as for me to try and calm myself but then I tend to lose myself in video games because I’ve played for too long and it’s hard for me to control. With my ADHD it makes it even harder to focus on my grades because I get distracted and then instead of focusing on my school work I tend to focus on my problems more. And with the other problem that I currently can’t speak about I tend to just spiral more and more away from what I should be doing. So that’s why I’ve stopped writing so many blogs lately unfortunately, and it’s taken me longer to write blogs especially one’s I should’ve done since December (it’s coming FlanxLyncath I promise and I do thank you very much for your Secret Santa Gift). But… that’s not what this blog is about, and without further ado we should continue onto the comics!

Fables – The Wolf Among Us 2:

With this we continue where we left off for the Wolf Among Us and I’m still going to try and not give away too much but with this issue there is something I truly want to talk about. The Donkeyskin Girl Fable was briefly touched in the game but here it’s given much more emphasis here and even goes into depth to make it a picture book fairy tale like you’d read. Which is one obvious advantage a book can have over a movie or game, sometimes it’s able to be done quite well in game but it’s easier to pull off in the format of a book. But I like that we get to see it in this format, I’ve recommend picking it up if only just for this part. It is nice that we can get some extras that the game didn’t have as well which makes it seems a little more worth it aside than just for curiosity’s sake of what cannon is. And we continue seeing the cannon way that decisions are supposed to be in game, even though all of these aren’t the decisions I’ve made it’s usually the middle ground though instead of being outright mean or outright nice.

MegaMan 45:

Wily gets away with Gamma and Roll gets a good smack on Doc Robot… before she is blasted away and threatened by Wily to be destroyed unless Light hands over the keys to Gamma which he does. Dr.Light also almost knocks Wily flat on his butt before Doc Robot steps in and has to save him like the wimp he is. Wily as he teleports away gives the order to trash Dr.Light’s lab entirely so as to leave nothing behind (but he doesn’t seem to do a very good job at this as he just gets the ground level and not the basement…) Protoman has a quick fight with MegaMan but only to distract him while Wily gets away with Gamma. MegaMan recharges they rebuild Auto and MegaMan prepares for the fight against Wily as well as Protoman. So after this story arc wraps up I’m thinking it’ll be time for Worlds Collide again as Megaman, and both Sonic comics are on a 4 story arc. Just call it a hunch.

Sonic Universe 72:

With Sonic Universe we get to see as far as I’m aware the introduction in the comics of Red Star Rings, which haven’t been here as far as I’ve seen. Ring’s hold a bit of a different usage in the comic as well, as they help to power machines, or let Sonic as well as others perform abilities that require just a little more of a boost. We see a bit of Nicole’s and Sally’s past back when Nicole wasn’t much more than just a computer and the best part about this issue is we get a fair amount of Big the Cat! Hooray! I don’t care what all the haters say Big the Cat’s character is charming even if his levels weren’t. Speaking of his levels we get to see Big the Cat fish up the Red Star Ring as well as kick a badnik that was attacking them and break it. Nicole also seems to detect a ghost or something in the system as they try to fix Dr.Ellidy’s systems from whatever has been going on. Sally finds something weird in Dr.Ellidy’s garage and Dr.Ellidy looks a little different as he confronts her and doesn’t look to happy.

Sonic The Hedgehog 269:

With this issue we see a little more history about Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog with Silver Sonic thrown into the mix as Breezie reveals she was working for Eggman in the past which I’ve been enjoying these throw back to AoSTH. Sonic takes out his opponent quite easily, and pff screen as well and with his usual Sonic showboating he almost transforms into Were-Hog Sonic in front of everyone, but thanks to Amy is reminded just in time and transforms in his room. Amy also wins off screen, and Knuckles uses Chip effectively to take back a piece of the Master Emerald from a lady who was using it as jewelry. Wes Weasley also makes a brief appearance thankfully, wouldn’t be the same without him as an announcer and we get to see Honey versus Tails on screen. And Tails is trounced because well… Honey’s a cheap bitch, and I don’t mean that as a joke he actually punches him in the stomach as the beginning move after having shaking fists. Cream the Rabbit had the same reaction as I did to the cheating as Honey also did a look over their trick and I don’t like cheap fights typically. Once in a while it works but not in this case. We also get to see Bean’s and Espio the Chameleon face off in a pretty amusing tussle, as Espio completely underestimates Beans and Beans just trips him out of the ring. Pretty amusing actually. Knuckles and Bark face off next and it’s just a no restraints straight up max muscle punches from one character to another, and honestly it’s nice to see that, for the next part we get to see who some of the people are going to be fighting next issue. Knuckles versus Amy which will be interesting and we’ll also get Honey versus Sonic. So that fights going to end with Honey losing. Only after Sonic transforms though. I could be wrong but it’s what I suspect.

Operation S.I.N. #2:

The aliens kill a few people and then for some reason back off once the device that summoned them is turned off. Except that didn’t happen, apparently Howard blacked out as soon as the aliens popped up, which also turned out to not be aliens but just pure energy that did blow stuff up but somehow didn’t kill anyone. Anyways after that they decide they should continue on so they can find out more about the strange orb and so they don’t attract the Russian authorities. However the authorities still catch them (not much of a surprise) so they fire off a rail beam gun which is pretty cool for the brief time it’s on screen. Then Woodrow MCcord wrestles with a bear that can talk and we get some foreshadowing for things that are going to come.

Cyclops 10:

Honestly for the most part there’s not all too much to write about for this one, Scott and Chris do both get away from the Pirates (after the Pirates found out that the Starjammers are still alive). Most of this is fighting since it is a whole planet of people that are a little upset that they had that weapon stolen from them and set up an ambush. Heck Chris Summers and Corsair almost make up their differences at the end, does help that Chris just saved Corsair’s crew from being eliminated. And then Corsair’s daughter decides to be a whiny little person, who just because Scott was working to save the Starjammers and his dad that they should die because oh he broke her heart. Wah wah, even though Scott even said that his feelings to her were true, but nah, let’s just knock him out and not let him fully explain then ask your dad to kill him even though he just saved you. Seems legit.

The Amazing Spider-Man 014:

In this one, we’re nearly at the conclusion of Spider-Verse and what a ride it has been, everyone that isn’t dead is here and ready to take them on. Kane has already been killed unfortunately as we found out last time, as he was one of the three and right before the Scion (the Child) is killed he’s stopped in time both times. Once by a quick web grab and the other by Spider-Ham disguising himself as the child and then promptly kicking them in the face. And the Uncle Ben from the irradiated world made off with the actual Scion in a good plan making it seem like he had chickened out. Doc Ock Spider-Man kills the Master Weaver and Peter Parker himself almost dies from Morlun but… Peter Parker scares Morlun even further than the previous times they’ve fought. They abandon all of Morlun’s family on the world that was dangerous for them but even more dangerous for the Inheritors. A completely irradiated world with just one safe place. However how safe remains to be the question since we’re unsure whether or not those spiders from last time were taken care of.

Spider-Woman 004:

For this one we also have a big fight scene but we also have the Loom World’s Jessica Drew take over after the end of Loom World being controlled by the Inheritors. We have Spider-Woman tell LoomWorld’s version of herself that if things become worse she’ll be back to fix things but for now it seems like she would be the best fit. She does know the most about LoomWorld and it’s on goings so that does make some amount of sense. We also see Spider-Woman quite the Avengers but if she’s needed she’ll come back. Just in case. And with that we see that they plan to continue Spider-Woman’s story which I’m excited for, they’ve decided to keep Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman, Silk, and Jessica Drew Spider-Woman continuing. However I really wish they would’ve done Spider-Ham as well as a few others. Who knows maybe they will in the future?

Future’s End 40:

Brainiac Invades. That’s pretty much the big thing that happens. Brainiac also dislocates all of Manhattan for some reason, but we haven’t been told the reason behind that quite yet. As Father Time predicted Engineer did indeed go rogue again once Brainiac was close enough for him to reacquire her so that made a problem quickly. Brainiac also has a giant robot version of himself walking through Manhattan as he’s trying to find a sample of something, which we’re still not quite sure of what yet.

Future’s End 41:

It’s pretty much all fighting in this issue again, which isn’t bad especially since Superman does happen to make his official return. Also attacking the main Brainiac head straight on doesn’t seem like much of a good plan since it seems to revert you to previous forms as Hawkman went back a few generations to the 70’s I believe. Mr. Terrific also finds out he’s been played by Brainiac and that his uSphere’s are having some part to do with Brainiac himself. However Plastique’s robot version of herself has found the real version of Plastique so we’ll have to see how that goes. Dr.Yamazake also decides to help out because, the whole human world versus his grudge against super heroes… ehhhhh… He decides to let it go for now and do the right thing.

 

One last note, one as a reminder if you're interested in doing the podcast leave a message below and one other thing, I was thinking of doing a Patreon to possibly do comics people want me to do as well but what I don't have money for. Just wanted to throw that off you guys and see what you though. If not that's okay too. Have a good day guys.
