Night of 1000 Wolves is *not a Dungeons & Dragons story*. I already posted preview links once. I'm not doing it again. Ok, fine. I'll do it again. http://tinyurl.com/6qflseg http://tinyurl.com/6u8gfxj Is that 'children's crowd cheer' JD used lifted from Halo Reach? I hear that sound popping up a thousands times a day from my roommate's console downstairs. I'm pretty sure that's it. Mars Attacks: They all have the same cover, but each one has a different, giant, cover-sized sticker over it that can be peeled off. Saga #4: 'You can see it going in.' - Charlie Brooker AvX: You guys debated quite a bit about Marvel's intentions (reboot or not, how will they undo these changes) but never once mentioned the 'War' teaser images being released (broken Thor hammer, Wolverine's hand melting, etc.) for the 'big event' this fall. There's your answer. I would have called in and pointed that out, but you have no 1-800 number. Don't knock Baltimore's numbering system. We need more stand alone stories that are strong enough on their own, like this!

The children's crowd cheer that JD uses is a sound effect that just comes with Garageband, the Mac program that he uses to edit the show... it's entirely possible that Halo Reach uses the same file... I've only been sent two of the War Teasers...and so far, I haven't been sent anything that makes me care. One of them was Thor's hammer, shattered, which we JUST saw as the cover for one of the "point" issues of Fear Itself. Lame. I'm of two minds for the numbering of Baltimore, I like that it might get someone to pick up a book thinking that it's new, but it's also a little bit misleading which is annoying. Have you been reading Baltimore?

until tonight to play it. I'm dying inside.

NIGHT OF A THOUSAND WOLVES takes place in the Dark Ages. So, so different than when Dungeons & Dragons was set. Still, the art looks nice and if I recall, I did suggest we cover it when the first issue came out, but it was shot down by the rest of the Beatles. So all you have to do, Pink, is get this week's @$$terpiece right and we'll check it out...

Seriously, don't read the comic that we did this week's @$$terpiece on.

...or even hearing of it before, for that matter. But if I did, I hereby change my vote and suggest we review it. It can't be worse than the book we did this week's @$$terpiece on.

We all should be gun shy when Bug recommends a book to us now. Masochistic fuck!

I just can't find it in me to give a fuck about any of the Before Watchmen material. Azzarello, JFK, Gimp Masks, Rape Buddies and all. Don't care. Kind of reminds me a Giamans run on Miracle Man, where he goes on to elaborate on all of the stuff Moore went on to just slightly mention in the last couple issues of MM. That was one of the cool things about Moore. He would throw in these details and single lines that spoke volumes about the story and let your imagination run wild. He didn't really need to elaborate on it. They just seemed like these cool morbid factoids that added a bit more depth to the story overall (and sometimes they actually helped tell the story without cluttering up the main plot). Sometimes they were so awesome that they seemed like they could actually warrant their own story. If Alan Moore wasn't a fucking badass in the 80's and wrote such rich characters then I don't think DC would have been able to revive these characters for the good ol' dead horse beating we're witnessing today in all these new Watchmen titles. Plus I think it speaks volumes that they had to get the best of the best as far as DC writers go to even touch these characters. Though I feel, since most of these dudes are at their most creative at this point in time, that they should be working on their own masterpieces and bodies of work instead of unimportant busted ass addendum's to some other guys material written 20 + years ago. Yeah I know, Alan Moore is an old perv/cranky/hack whatever, but he's going to be remembered as one of the best ever because weather you like him or not, the man can write a damn good intricate story. Favorite quote from this podcast: "He cries more than Dr.Doom on 9/11".

Most coolest new feature ever added to Skyrim: black characters voiced by actual black voice actors!

I've spent the last month or so playing WEB OF SHADOWS which has an AWESOME web swinging mechanic, and this one just doesn't have the same scope so far. :(

And you want to make me jump through an hoop and beg pretty to get you to read it? How about instead of that, I drop my pants and you **** me where I *** before ******* my *** you useless ******* pieces of worthless ****-balls, and then **** it straight up your *** until it ***** and gushes ***. And don't forget to add the walnuts. Friggin' Noids.
