Ain't It Cool News (



Ambush Bug here. The below hour-plus long conversation took place between myself and fellow @$$holes Matt Adler, and our host Johnny Destructo of as we talked about AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! #1, LEGION LOST #7, CROSSED: BADLANDS #1, SAGA #1, SAUCER COUNTRY #1, THE JUNGLE BOOK #1, and of course, more general jack@$$$ery!

Looks for more of the Holes rambling about comics on Poptards and in future AICN COMICS columns!

    do you guys just go link to link, writing "first"?

    by Poptard_JD

    but contributing nothing else? Man, I wish I had that much free time

  • March 20, 2012, 12:09 p.m. CST

    That is the oddest group of books to talk about ever...

    by Greg Nielsen

    You go Bendis to Legion to rape/gore/gross/death comic with Crossed. I'm at work so I can't listen to this yet but if it does do that I will laugh my head off. Even if it doesn't. It's still fun to listen too.

  • March 20, 2012, 12:20 p.m. CST

    Thanks Yorgo, we try to keep it mixed up...

    by Poptard_JD

    A lot of shows just keep reviewing the same books over and over, but we really try to switch it up and only repeat books if it's going to make for interesting conversation :)

  • March 20, 2012, 1:14 p.m. CST

    You guys were a little harsh on your friend there

    You're Right poptard_jd

    by Gore_monkey

    There's more to life than the coveted first post on the Talk back. I should actually contribute to the topic at hand, OH SHIT! Here comes my boss gotta look busy and switch tabs

  • March 20, 2012, 1:25 p.m. CST

    For some reason...

    by Ambush Bug

    ...first seems to be the equivalent of getting laid to some TBers, though I'm pretty sure if you are darting to the TBs to write first and are somehow jazzed about that it's more likely the antidote for getting some.

  • March 20, 2012, 1:32 p.m. CST

    mainman: who was harsh on whom?

    by Poptard_JD

    I would think it would be more difficult to go for fourteenth poster. You guys should aim for something more difficult.

  • March 20, 2012, 2:10 p.m. CST

    First!!!! At 3:10 PM EST!!!!!

    ...first seems to be the equivalent of getting laid to some TBers

    by BilboRing

    Says the guy who writes a novel to review a comic book that has maybe a full page of writing in it.

  • March 20, 2012, 2:25 p.m. CST

    I'm not sure where you failed harder there, Bilboring.

    by 3774

    The fact that you're confused over the analysis of comprehensive artforms (why write about paintings, since they have no words at all?), or the fact that you're criticizing someone doing something product with their time? Either way, keep derping onward.

  • March 20, 2012, 3:09 p.m. CST

    Ha! You beat me to it Pink!

    Podcast stuff...

    by 3774

    I jot thing down while listening, when I have the time. 1.) I love those re-enactment readings WAAAY more than I have any reason too! Every time you don't do one, another talkbacker troll is born. Think about that. B.) That Captain America dub sounded like it was coming out of Iron Man's helmet. 3.) RE: Spider-Woman cracks. YOU SHUT YOUR FILTHY MOUTHS! SHE IS AWESOME AND YOU ARE NOT!! IV.) I think JD's dislike of UFO stories is probably related to a fishing trip alone, a late night teleport abduction, and a gang-probe. E.) It's SAW-guh, JD. SAW-guh. You're driving me crazy. 6.) On that note, if Fiona's interior SAW-guh art looks a little rushed, it's probably due to twice the normal amount of content. There was probably a time-crunch involved.

  • March 20, 2012, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Pink...I accept your apology.

    by BilboRing

    Thanks for manning up.

  • March 20, 2012, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Best one yet

    by Mr_Fancy_Pants

    Been listening to these pod cast for a few months now. i think this one had the best conversations between all the players. When more than one person has read the books, it makes for a much more engaging show. When you guys pick the books to review, maybe a requirement for the show is that at least three of you are gonna read it? And while I'm at it, give Journey into Mystery a gander sometime. I'd enjoy hearing everyones take on the book. Later

  • March 20, 2012, 5:16 p.m. CST

    Pink and JD?

    by HiWayRobry

    Did either of you ever get around to reading Gladstone's? Thoughts?

  • March 20, 2012, 8:07 p.m. CST

    I freakin' LOVED Saga.

    by Jaka

    I mean LOVED it! Read it, flipped through it again to just look at the art and layout, then read it again. Afterwards I immediately wanted to know more. That one is probably going to read exceptionally well in graphic novel form. My favorite new ongoing title in a good long time. Hope it holds up.

  • March 20, 2012, 8:45 p.m. CST

    I have not found it yet, sir.

    by 3774

    I have looked, but to no avail. I'll probably have to special order it. JD works in a comic shop and has no excuse, tho. Any negatory response is proof of shiftless lay-about-itis.

  • March 20, 2012, 10:57 p.m. CST

    not only do i work in a comic shop part time...

    by Poptard_JD

    I believe I OWN the first issue, but it sits in my "to read" short box by my bed just waiting for me to read it. I'll get to it! I will!

  • March 21, 2012, 12:38 a.m. CST

    I've posted twice now, and they keep disappearing!

    by Poptard_JD

    glargh! I haven't read the issue yet, but I will, I swear!

  • March 21, 2012, 6:34 a.m. CST

    Jealousy get's you no where fellow talkbackers

    Love Gladstone's

    by optimous_douche

    Lots of fun and Mark Andrew Smith is a great writer for all ages. Check out his New Brighton Archaeological Society for another awesome kid adventure.

    Touche, Douche

    Though I don't say SEGA, I say SAHHHHHGA, to rhyme FAG-A

    Hey! Mr Fancy Pants!

    by Poptard_JD

    Really appreciate the kind words! Write in and guess what the ASSterpiece theatre was this week and when you're right, make us review JOURNEY!!!

  • March 21, 2012, 10:34 a.m. CST

    Come on, JD.

    by 3774

    You couldn't use something like 'bag' or 'tag'? Not cool. I thought you were better than that. Homer probably did, too.

  • March 21, 2012, 10:47 a.m. CST

    woah woah

    by Poptard_JD

    I wasn't going using that as an insult, I was thinking british smoke. Was literally just watching Luther (which is an AWWWESOME show starring Idris Elba that you should check out) and Fag was just the first thing that came to mind. No offense intended.

  • March 21, 2012, 10:56 a.m. CST

    but while we are on the subject

    by Poptard_JD

    Is anyone actually offended by these words anymore? They are so cartoonish at this point. I've yet to meet someone who is offended by terms like that. Either it's bandied about between friends and it's cool, or even when someone calls them that in an attempt to be insulting, they aren't insulted by it. The only people I see getting offended are people who are offended FOR other people, if that makes sense.

  • March 21, 2012, 11:26 a.m. CST


    by 3774

    ....two members of my women's club also belong to the LGBT club. Yes, JD. Words like that are used in harsh ways you might not imagine, and they still offend. Please don't go down that 'I don't see a problem with it/everybody does it/my gay friend is fine with it' logical fallacy junk thinking. I've seen two guys get beaten senseless and bloody, I've seen one woman get the crap kicked out of her by a group of 5 others, and I've seen countless people online just quietly go away and stop participating, or never bother to begin with. RE: No Place Like Home. I might take a look at it, but it won't be due to a positive female review for the first issue. It's a sociological fact that the first person to roll over on women with sexist thinking is other women. It's a power dynamic that involves selling out your own kind to ingratiate yourself to the majority in power, and it's been done throughout history. When you see somebody proudly exclaim, 'Well, *I* don't have a problem with it!', it makes your brain hurt. Because there's so much education required to bring them up to speed, that you just don't bother. Which is usually exactly what the men who brought the little token out were hoping for. I hope that writing is well done. It depends on whether or not the same mentality responsible for the first cover is also responsible for the writing.
