"I think Batman and Catwoman’s relationship is going to be key to the series moving forward, and I don’t think it will be what you expect it to be." - Tom King

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

I'm not going to mention politics specifically, but I will share a new word I learned this week;

Kakistocracy - Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens

I can't imagine why that seemed relevant....

I hope everyone survived Black Friday intact, or took part in the far less stressful sounding "Buy Nothing Friday".

After about 18GB of downloads, patches and copious swearing in my most Scottish accent, I've managed to get my Year 2 characters and levels of LEGO Dimensions updated and working!

My thanks for previous podcast recommendations, I'm particularly enjoying The Bright Sessions, a series about a therapist and her "Atypical" patients (eg superpowered) that manages to be fascinating in a very "original New Mutants" sort of a way as we see how their abilities have impacted their day to day lives (The progression of the young empath trying to sort out his emotional life is adorable)... There are a few interesting subplots too.

I looked long and hard for whimiscally distracting news stories, but they seem in short supply, so if anyone has any local news of that sort they'd care to share, that would be awesome.

I posted this a little over a year ago but found out today Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald on Gotham) cited it as his favorite Batman comic (along with 'The Killing Joke') and figured some may be curious to check it out again.

Warning for some violence/gore.

This is one of the stupidest and yet vastly underrated moments in Marvel history...

Back when zapbiffpow posted scans for Trinity 2 and 3, I mentioned this series and he was interested in seeing some scans, so here we go.

Superman For All Seasons is a 4 issues mini-series that gives great emphsasis on how important Smallville is to Clark. Each issue is narrated from the point of view of a different character and how they see Superman/Clark.

Our first narrator is Pa Kent )

So, uh, there's this Youtube guy called hbomberguy...

I don't know how to start threads.

Anyway, this guy did a video on the Killing Joke movie and why it's bad and how Alan Moore inadvertently helped kill comics. I thought it'd be interesting to post for obvious reasons.

Though what he does say that I haven't heard anyone say before is how the adaptation ignores a hell of a lot of the stuff that made the Killing Joke feel alive and interesting, and how Liefeldian sparse, nonexistent backgrounds are really fucking shitty for a comic and not just bad art. Background detail can really add a lot to a work.

He talks about this subject in other videos, and it's something I've been noticing in media in general. I recently replayed Chrono Trigger and noticed how the pixel thin strings in Marle's crossbow thwip when she fires it.Or watching a Jackie Chan movie and seeing how there's a clear rythym to the kicks and punches that don't exist in a lot of less awesome American action movies.

TL;DR details are hella important.

'When you have this much sturm and drang going on in the Marvel Universe, it’s bound to affect things on the edges — I liken it to something like the play “Noises Off,” where there’s the action going on on the stage and the drama happening backstage, and one affects the other. “New Avengers” glances off the main “CW2” plot, but we’ll be coming out of it in a very different place from where we go in.' -- Al Ewing

"Nick is a character who has been around for a good few years now but I don't think has really taken off yet, which is surprising considering how prominent the movie Fury is in that franchise. Nick has legacy attached to him because of who his father was, has involvement in contemporary S.H.I.E.L.D., etc., but still hasn't been in the spotlight. I tried to approach the story with the reader in mind and thought "what would get me excited about Fury?," then things clicked into place." - Declan Shalvey

This is the full context of the death of the girl in the "MCU synergy" Doctor Strange post (also this comic is more than a month old)... was MCU Mordo pathetic evil? My first post. Sorry, if I made mistakes.
