The Kollectors Edition comes with a certificate of authenticity? Wow, that's great. Every damn time I buy one of these things, it turns out to be some lousy fake. How good of them to make sure I can prove to all my friends that I bought the real thing! » 3/26/15 11:28am 3/26/15 11:28am

The worst thing about this story was, Joe Casey had set the CoH up as quite interesting villains during his run, and it seemed like there was a long term plan for them. » 3/25/15 6:46pm 3/25/15 6:46pm

I dunno... I enjoyed that comic at the time, but in retrospect, that character being created and written by an old white guy comes across as a bit of an unpleasant strawman. Straczynski takes a lot of actually very fair arguments about institutional racism, but has them coming out of the mouth of a rich, belligerent… » 3/25/15 10:31am 3/25/15 10:31am

As someone who adored the Clangers as a kid, and still gets a bit nostalgic at the sound of a swanee whistle, can I just say thank you io9 in general, and Charlie Jane (who I am certain is the only human person in America both willing and able to post news about The Clangers with the tag "THIS IS AWESOME) in… » 3/23/15 11:11am 3/23/15 11:11am

So the Transformed Man is not unreasonably considered a bit of a joke, but his cover of Pulp's Common People is genuinely one of my favourite cover versions in the history of music. Although a good deal of the credit there belongs to producer Ben Folds and co vocalist Joe Jackson, it's still Shatner's name on the… » 3/22/15 12:02pm 3/22/15 12:02pm

Hmm. Probably because I've only seen her playing someone weird, mysterious and a bit creepy, but I can't imagine her playing the down-to-earth, gun toting swear machine that is Tulip. Can anyone recommend me any of her other performances that might convince me she's right for the role? » 3/19/15 7:22am 3/19/15 7:22am

My personal favourites are Reaper Man, Night Watch and Lords and Ladies, but I'm currently rereading every single one of them in his memory, so my answer is probably going to be "whichever one I just finished" for the next couple of weeks » 3/18/15 8:33pm 3/18/15 8:33pm

Pfft, I've been shortsighted for 32 years now, and you're telling me I suddenly have to contend with a bunch of bandwagon jumpers? Right, that's it, I quit. It's just not cool anymore » 3/18/15 3:39pm 3/18/15 3:39pm

I remember suggesting that a while back in a thread about the show, and got jumped on by about half a dozen different people who insisted that Reese and Finch were in fact "Batman if he was two separate people". Quite glad to finally get some small measure of vindication on that :) » 3/17/15 4:01pm 3/17/15 4:01pm

Really? Are we completely sure? Not saying you're wrong, but a Shield affiliated agency that deals with aliens seems an odd thing to be included as part and parcel with all the Mutant stuff. » 3/15/15 8:26pm 3/15/15 8:26pm
