Screw You, CBR!

I mentioned before about Comic Book Resources annoying me with their inclusion of spoilers in their headlines or at the start of their articles; because I still use a feed reader, I can sometimes be surprised by spoilers of comics, TV or films and I hate that.

I haven’t been reading The Button, the current crossover between Batman and The Flash, but I’m interested about the connections to the Watchmen and Rebirth mystery connection so have been keeping half an eye on things. Checking my feed over the weekend, I see this:

I’ve redacted the headline and the picture because of spoilers! How difficult was that, CBR?

It’s the last straw, for me – I’ve unsubscribed from them partly because of crap like this, but also because of their annoying auto play videos and the seemingly never ending list based articles:

Seriously – what is the fascination with 15?

I’ll miss The Line It Is Drawn and the Comic Book Legends Revealed but apart from that, I’ll rely on other sources for my news.

War Of The Gods Annotations Done

Took a lot longer than expected – mostly due to having the entire house redecorated last year – but the War of The Gods annotations are finished.

I might wait just a little longer to publish them and tie them in with the forthcoming Wonder Woman Day on 3rd of June just for the hell of it.

It’s a toss up about what to do next – either Bloodlines or Millennium. Anyone have a preference?

Doomsday Clock Thoughts

So, it’s actually happening – Superman and Dr Manhattan are going to meet up sometime in or after November this year.

Geoff Johns is back to write a story about optimism versus pessimism and, surprisingly for a big event . . .

There are no crossovers. No watered down one-shots or mini-series on top of this one. This is a standalone story.

This concept – the DCU vs Watchmen could have been played out on a scale as large as Crisis on Infinite Earths if they’d wanted, so it’ll be interesting to see what they do with it.

New Hellboy Film Coming

Just read the news that there’s going to be a reboot of Hellboy coming soon which made me do this:

And then I read that it was to be directed by Neil Marshall . . . which made me do this:

I loved Dog Soldiers, thought Descent was great until the cave monsters were revealed and as far as Doomsday was concerned . . . sweet Cthulhu, I’m so glad I barely remember the level of awfulness.

Still, we wait and see, I suppose.
