Name: Mark Goldberg Source: unca20060807.htm To reward myself for not committing demon-icide during my mother-in-law's recent visit, I have decided to finally purchase "Mind Fields". Susan, do you have any copies available? Steve Barber, my reasons for collecting have evolved over the years. At fir...

While I am a devotee of the cult of Joss, this latest run in Astonishing is lacking for me. I enjoyed the first 12 issues, but after their hiatus the series seemed to lose steam. I do enjoy the explanation for Emma's secondary mutation, as well as her "road to Damascus" moment, but somehow...

Other than 52 (and I am still trying to figure out who that giant dude is that caught Starfire, he looks very familiar but I cannot place it), the ones I am really enjoying are: Secret Six and Birds of Prey - primarily because of Gail Simone, the lady is a dynamite writer Shadowpact - I loved the te...

Adam-Troy, Thank you for your response and for clarifying some aspects that seemed out of character for me. When I saw Parker unmasking and they showed Aunt May and MJ watching on television, I assumed it was at their house, rather than at the Avengers mansion. This does emphasize one of the weak po...

Ron Palillo is dead? It is probably a cliche, but I have to say that Hamlet is the greatest work in Western literature. I re-read it again before I went to see it at the Guthire Theater and was just amazed by what the complexity and deoth of the work. As much as I love Midsummer Night's Dream and Ma...

This new Superman film is just not moving me, and I cannot say why. I had an opportunity to see it for free through a special sneak preview (I do love the perks of working for a newspaper sometimes) and declined. The story just does not sound interesting to me. Something that is starting to get me m...

Name: Mark Goldberg Source: unca20060807.htm Roger, I am tardy on posting this, but my condolences on your loss. Give me a call or drop me an email if you want to talk. Adam-Troy: I posted some comments about both Civil War and 52 over on the bulletin boards. I would be very interested in hearing m...

Changing subjects completely, I had an odd experience at my comic book shop today. A buddy of mine asked me to see if I could find a copy of Galactica 0, a special preview of a series that sold for only $0.25. There was only one copy left, and my buddy who works at the store told me that some guys w...

rob, I dun seen George Reeves in the old series and do agree he was "manly". Ain't got no problem with Clint Walker, either, he dun look like he could play the part too. Sorry, gotta stop this shtick, I am starting to write like some of my wife's relatives speak. Nic Cage would have been a...

Eric, in response: "wooly-headed idealism that passes for political analysis on Webderland will rub some fur the wrong way" Let me be clear, I am not an idealist, I just would like my government to stop treating the law of the land as a suggestion. The funny thing is, I am not even that li...

Rob, while a good story is paramount to a movie being accepted, I still say the reason people can accept people with different looks being Batman is because of the mask. Superman does not have that, so it is more difficult to cast actors with a different look in that role. Not impossible, as evidenc...

Bringing things back to books, as I made my political statement for the day on the main page, I picked up a book called the Children of Cthulhu today to re-read. With it being the summer solstice, I felt like reading a little strange fiction, for some reason. Ain't gonna read it right before bed, th...

John G - yes I read that piece by Niven on Kal-el's bodily functions a long time ago and found it hilarious, especially the description of Superman sperm flying around Metropolis. David - when Kal-el and Lois made "the beast with 2 backs" (God I love Othello), he had lost all his powers, s...

Mindtraveller, no you are not being cranky. Steve summarized the situation very well, but allow me elaborate slightly. There were a couple of comments about Philly on the main Webderland page, and I related the experience I had during a recent trip there. Since a number of people commented on the in...
