Yeah, but only until next month.

I seem to recall some big movie that proposed this idea years ago.  Can't seem to put my finger on the name of it though...

Is it just me, or do most cosplayers look better than their movie counterparts? (Yes, I know there's no WW movie, but still...)

That is because the cosplayers take directly from the source material and make an exact copy of the costume. Hollywood tends to "make improvements" on the costume and change it from its original source material.

Not always detrimentally, in all honesty.

I know that the picture was a porn star in a WW outfit. But it still stands that cosplayers tend to have better costumes then Hollywood.

Yes, yes they do. I just wanted to make sure you knew! It's too cool to take the chance that you didn't!!

I think you'd agree, better told twice than not at all.

I really like that first one.  IMHO, that's the outfit a Wonder Woman movie should use.

No, the ground breaking part is in reference to how many unsold copies there will be and how much they weigh.

As long as it counts if I keep my finger on the previous page.

This series was better because you use dice.

True, true, play on.

Though I suppose technically the digital electrons have some mass, right?

And those "improvements" tend to stink in the worst way.

I choose for the adventure to take place in the time when DC was a comics company, before Johns and Didio ran DC Entertainment.

FirstNationalBastard: Johns and Didio


Say what you will about Didiot, but Johns is a strong writer. I like just about everything from him. I just wish he wasn't DC Brian Michael Bendis.

Johns is a strong writer when he has someone to edit him, and steer him away from shiatting silver age rehashes on the page.

Stars and STRIPE and JSA were great books. Everything since he became boss? Silver age fanwank, or worse.

Don't forget his Flash run, good stuff. But yeah, promotion and over-exposure have ruined Johns. Didio hasn't ever been worth a damn, truly a talentless hack.
