DF Comic Books / Re: Style of Comics You Read
« on: December 12, 2009, 08:31:37 PM »
The only new comics I've been into have been the recent rash of Golden Age revival books by Marvel, like The Torch and some of the Sub-Mariner one shots, and occasionally Booster Gold (if I hear good reviews for that particular issue off the forums).

I pretty much gave up on comics altogether at the turn of the millennium. The art was, on the whole, getting progressively worse, and the stories were leaning back into multi-issue plotlines that pulled way too much money from my pocket. I broke that briefly to buy Formerly Known as the Justice League and I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice League, but then DC went and killed off practically every character I'd liked, and Superboy-Prime punched reality...

Give me hokey Silver Age books anyday.

DF TV Series / Re: POLL: End Game Opinion of the Series

Saw the show, fell in love, then went and bought a good deal of the books. (I'm still not caught all the way up yet, but that's college for you...)

It's, hands-down, one of my favorite shows. I rewatch the DVDs often enough that even my non-obsessed roommate can quote whole stretches of dialogue. Nothing disappoints me more than that it didn't continue. I enjoyed the Rockford Files-ness of it all, the absolutely superb acting talent, and the beautiful sets. Everything about the show felt right -- maybe it wasn't all in-line with the books, but within the show, itself, it was aces.

Still, there's the huge sense of... wanting? ...that remains. A whole lot was left unsaid. I sincerely hope that the TV-verse storylines will be resolved someday.
