Ain't It Cool News (



Ambush Bug here. The below hour-plus long conversation took place between myself and my fellow @$$holes Matt Adler, Optimous Douche, and our host Johnny Destructo of as we talked about EARTH 2 #1, GARFIELD #1, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #1, HULK SMASH AVENGERS #1, WORLD’S FINEST #1, MIND THE GAP #1, another rousing episode of @$$terpiece Theatre, and of course, more general jack@$$$ery!

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

    Cyclops is a badass, Wolverine a traitor and Cap a fascist. Just wishes JRjr get the fuck out, though.

    Yes, it was...

    Hopefully, we can rectify that next week. Sorry about that.

    Accurate assesment of Smallville JD

    by Wcwlkr

    I loved it when it first came out. The first couple of season I was digging it, but that show just got progressively worse from season to season.

    cancelled 52 titles

    by eloy

    hey guys Im rather off the loop just lately, would you mind giving me a rundown of which titles specifically were cancelled out of the new 52 lineup? And, were they replaced by new ones? Is still a 52 title lineup over at DC?

    by Ambush Bug

    Cancelled were MISTER TERRIFIC, MEN AT WAR, HAWK & DOVE, BLACKHAWKS, OMAC. I think that's it. They were replaced by the new titles EARTH 2, WORLD'S FINEST, GI COMBAT, THE RAVAGERS, DIAL H. Still 52. I'm still following less than half.

    please tell me the people who were confused about a book titled Earth 2 showed up on Free Comic Book Day.

  • May 8, 2012, 9:38 p.m. CST

    Nope, they are regular comic readers, but not DC readers.

    I guess the revamp must have been more confusing than I realized. I'll leave it at that so I don't offend your customers.

    World's Finest....

    by 3774

    Optimus mentioned the weird dwarfism of Power Girl's head proportions. I think it's because the artist intended to tone down the tired DD thing, but literally couldn't either figure out how to do it, or bring themselves to do it. So they tried to compensate by drawing her head larger. It's funny, yet sad. Like many things in life. Power Girl's new costume isn't the costume that DC was promoting. They removed the gold boots and added blue racing stripes. Probably for speed. It's a scientifically proven-fact that racing stripes make you go faster an' junk. It's not great, but anything is better than the boob window.

    is there an Earth like that?
