Old one was autosaging.

Anyone into the new Valiant comics? XO and Bloodshot are pretty great action books, if not two of the better titles out there. Quantum and Woody is hilarious as always. Archer and Armstrong is the writer of Incredible Herc doing another Incredible Herc (if you've read the Herc run you'll love this). Shadowman is good too (not the best but I'm going to give it a chance). Haven't read Harbinger yet. Overall they're putting out stuff better than some of the shit the big two puts out.

Also Furturama is cancelled but Brickleberry is still going. The fuck?

How come Reboot managed to feel like a living city yet Beware The Bat and NewTMNT feel dead as shit?

To be fair, Reboot could fill the streets with walking cubes and unrealistic looking cars.

But yeah, enough time has passed that empty cities really shouldn't happen any more.

Anyone else watch Bravest Warriors and think the second season isn't as good as the first? Before it was just Nickelodeon risque, but now it seems to have gone full PG13 and lost some of its charm.

its only funny when you fondle the line, but now that you've been making out the the thing, its getting to be a bit much.

I think the problem is the long wait between episodes and that the first episode of Season 2 was so damn good that it made the others look worse than they actually are in comparison.

>The nominated films for this year's Academy Awards:
>The Croods, Despicable Me 2, Ernest & Celestine, Frozen and The Wind Rises
>The Croods, Despicable Me 2

And hopefully, either Ernest & Celestine or The Wind Rises will the that statuette. While I haven't seen Frozen, and I don't believe it's a bad film, I don't want to have an Oscar when it's side by side with Ghibli and French-Belgian animation.

See, this is why all animated flicks being required to compete only in a single Best Animated Film category is bullshit. Frozen had a lot of really well done stuff in it that deserves recognition, but its visuals (while good) were not especially noteworthy, which is a category that Ghibli works shine in.

I understand that there just generally aren't enough animated films each year to justify a "Best Animation / Art Direction in an Animated Film" category separate from the "Best Animated Film" category, but that's a damned shame.

For an example of what I mean, look at Ponyo. I don't remember what came out that year, but Ponyo probably does not deserve an oscar for Best Animated Film for whichever year it was. But I am pretty god damned certain it deserved one for Best Animation and Art Direction whichever year it came out.

Did you just "Eugh" at The Croods?

Because the Croods was fucking wonderful.
>> No. 222160
I felt it was above average, not terrible, but not remarcable either.
I don't think that film is bad, I haven't seen Despicable Me 2 (I think the first one if fine though), but I don't believe those films are deserve the Oscar.
>> No. 222162
Well I disagree with immensely on The Croods but Holy Shit Dispicable Me 2 was flotsam.
>> No. 222168
With that one I feel if the premise had stuck to just Gru and the girls I'd have liked it a lot more.

The oscars are becoming a joke anyway.
Most award shows are.
>> No. 222171
Self congratulatory back patting and "statements" moreover than movies that are actually good anymore. Sadly I do see Frozen possibly getting it as a statement to Pixar over Brave, hell cutting them out entirely this year and their lack of any film next year seems to line that up as a high possibility.

These days, there's an alarming trend wherein writers make a supervillain tailor made for a single story arc, make them sooooooo powerful and impressive, and then they're beat and no one ever uses them because they were so grafted to that particular story (ex. most of the new New52 villains).

What's the key to creating bad guys that can actually be recurring foes to the heroes without making those clashes seem forced?

I mean, there are tons of supervillains who are tied to a gimmick, yet they still keep getting used over and over.
>> No. 222394
Have the antagonist closely related to the protagonist somehow?
>> No. 222396
It mostly has to do with how little "the status quo" matters in comics nowadays. When there was a steady status quo, recurring villains made sense because they got beat, went away for a while, then came back and fought a hero that was more or less the same. Nowadays every story has to be an earthshattering event that utterly reshapes the hero, and that means that new villains, written to fit that kind of story, are essentially transformative and situational. If they show up and kill the hero's wife or blow up his city, they can't exactly do that twice, the wife or city are already gone.
>> No. 222398
I'm not sure how anyone thought that was a good idea. It's basic pacing, or a lack thereof in this case.

I think it might be brilliant.

Wait until Marvel exhausts all their big properties, finishes its Avengers trilogy, parts ways with RDJ, and cancels Agents of SHIELD.

And while they're resting their laurels and the public is amped up for more superheroes, whammo! A DC film released every year with a shared universe! And to top it all off, they'll be made after taking notes on how Marvel's were such a success. Marvel takes all the risks while DC gets all the benefits.

I think they might have timed this. Why compete when you can dominate?

Adult Swim is now going all the way to 8 PM.

Dunno how that will work. Pretty much saying DCNation is RIP.
>> No. 222982
What the hell is the logic here? Their little experiment in running an hour less of Adult Swim every night and an hour more Cartoon Network didn't seem to pan out well, so they're going to try the opposite?

Also DC Nation has been fucking dead for a long time already.
>> No. 222985
Sucks to see advertising is going on Boomerang but maybe it will lead to new bumpers and network ads. They've been using the same stuff for almost a decade.

And why not just spin Adult Swim off into another network at this point? Then they can air five hours of Family Guy reruns instead of one. Whoever the fuck watches those over and over will love that!

DC Nation died once the only new content was whatever shorts they hadn't gotten around to airing.
