If it does, let’s just hope there won’t be somebody out there making thousands account to cheat on the tournament, I would want this to be fair for both us the fans and those who work on the comics.
Heyo, you as well!
Other than having to deal with the influx of fake accounts, I had a blast with last year’s tournament as well! As far as I know, planning has not started for a RR this year, so I’m not positive it’s happening. But if/when I hear more information, you all will be the first to know!
Kind of related to a previous question, but how does it get decided which older comics get digitized and which don’t? From the outside, it all seems rather random, especially considering how many iconic issues have yet to be added, but I can’t imagine that that’s really the case.
@Jitsu, any fan-cast for a show based off Vertigo’s “Fables”?
Did we ever get an answer as to why the digitization team working on Captain Marvel Adventures started with issue 124?
Hey hey! Answering this one during off-hours, but the short answer is that I do not have insight into the digitization process. I’m sure the team(s) that handle digitization have very good reasons, but I unfortunately am not provided with the reasons/processes that dictate what gets digitized and when.
Unfortunately not–I am not provided with specific reasons as to why certain books are digitized in the order they are. I’ll continue to press for more info though!
Gah, sorry for making you feel like you had to answer late! I figured that I’d get a reply next week (and didn’t mind that) but wanted to make sure and post my question so that I didn’t forget it. Thank you so much!
I guess this means it’s back to asking my Magic Eight ball what issues are going to be digitized!
Not a problem at all!
I recently got my copy of the Filmation. Adventures of Batman on Blu ray and I was wondering if you have heard if the other Filmation DC shows will turn up on Blu ray in the near future?
This trip to Trivia Corner - SWE (Special Women’s Edition), looks at some of the little known secrets regarding DC’s Wonder Woman, given flesh. A little segment I like to call Big Screen, Little Screen, Hidden Screen. After her big screen 2016 debut in BvS, we got 4 (counting a not so “secret” reveal in a new movie) appearances of Gal Gadot’s kicka#@ version of the Amazing Amazon. Before being put on hold, by the new WB/Discovery powers that be.
Prior to that, older fans like myself, fell in love with Lynda Carter, who literally was Wonder Woman in the 70s for our generation. Her TV series lasted 3 seasons, appearing on two different networks. And most WW fans probably know that before Lynda, a very blonde Cathy Lee Crosby donned a very different version of the classic costume, in a very different (and failed) TV pilot back in 1974. Memorable only for Ricardo Montalban as the heavy. Many others may know that before Gal, there was another made-for-tv movie pilot in 2011 with Adrianne Palicki. This new version, again attempted to bring the star-spangled heroine back to the small screen. It went unseen and was also unsuccessful.
But the real gem I found tucked away in a corner of the treasure chest, was hidden behind Adam West’s Batman '66. The show’s producer, William Dozier, wanted to reach a wider female audience. So, he gave us Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, in the show’s 3rd season. But he also made a terrible and rarely seen pilot in '67 for Wonder Woman. It starred little known Elanor Wood as Diana Prince, aka WW. And well, it has to be seen to be believed. You’d swear you were looking at a Jr. High stage play, with the same production values. Hard to remember that same producer, made both Batman and the Green Hornet. If you can find it out there, it’s worth a look see. If only for a few chuckles (or more likely, a grimace through clenched teeth). Suffering Sappho!
More on WW at a later date. "Til then, as Roy Rogers & Dale Evans use to sing, “Happy trails to you, until we meet again.”
Stay safe, be well.
Hello @Jitsu ,
Hope you’re doing great, by the time you see this post and responding to it (if you wanted too.), I’ll be watching Shazam 2. Looking forward to seeing it!
Anyway I have to ask you a question, my question is…if a DC movie was coming to a big screen on your birthday, which super hero would it be? I’ve got my wish last year with The Batman!
Anyway have a great day, and when I come back, I’ll let you know what I think of the movie.
Amazing info here!
I’ll add a little story about the incredible Lynda Carter…before DC, I worked at Bethesda Softworks–the studio/publisher behind some really amazing video games. The former CEO of Bethesda was a man named Robert Altman, who unfortunately passed away some years back. BUT, Lynda was actually married to Robert Altman! I have fond memories of seeing her at the annual holiday parties striking the WW crossed-arms pose with anyone who wanted a picture–didn’t matter if they were an intern, or an exec-level director. She was always so sweet to everyone, and even did a few voices in several Bethesda games!
Anyway, thanks so much for sharing–looking forward to your WW entry! Have an awesome night!
So so excited for you to see Shazam 2! Let us know what you think over in the spoiler/reaction thread!
Oooh, what a unique question–I think having The Batman come out on/around your birthday is an awesome way to celebrate! If I had to pick one, I think having a fully produced Sandman movie release on my birthday would be pretty amazing. I’d have such a blast seeing that on the big screen!
Hello @Jitsu , I know your first love is Batman, but who is your favorite villain?
Mine is Lady Shiva, though I often feel that many writers just use her to show how good their character is.
Hmmm…so many to choose from!
I think Black Adam (depending on what arc) is one of my top picks. His ability to just utterly overwhelm some of the most powerful heroes in DC history always made had me in awe!
That being said, I’ve recently been reading through the Batman–One Bad Day series, and I am so struck by how each villain is shown in a really different/new light. I find myself feeling bad for them, and even relating to them–which certainly makes me appreciate some of these classic villains even more. Definitely check it out if you haven’t yet!
Suuuuch a great pick!
Just finished the Clayface one today, I totally agree it is a great series with new characterization of each villain.
