@ralphdibny
Made her more 'Hulk' essentially. The sassy lawyer/fitness model/bodybuilder/party girl Jennifer has been replaced by and 'uglied' up, massive Hulk closer to a standard Banner Hulk version of her. There's a not particularly well constructed (and rather unnecessarily on the nose) story line to go with it along similar lines of many of Bruce's past struggles with his Hulk personas.

I would assume the TV show will stick to the more well version of She Hulk, if for no other reason to have her have a life and job to balance out the Hulking. I don't know whether new She Hulk will still life her life as before, but the way they played it out in the internal struggle - I'm thinking not.

@KALofKRYPTON ahh fair enough! I've been seeing pics of the bulkier she hulk for a while. I wasn't too enthused when DC bulked up Beast Boy recentishly either!

I do wonder if the show will actually have a CGI she hulk or just a painted person.

@ralphdibny That will depend I guess. If they can find a tall, very muscular fitness model or body builder who can pull off a decent performance - I think non-CG would probably be preferable.
Holds the budget down or at least lets the effects work concentrate on suitable action shots rather than be spent just animating the main character every time she's on screen.

Also, they can always cast shorter supporting actors and shoot to emphasize her size.

@KALofKRYPTON I agree that non CG would be preferable, just because she hulk is more realistically proportioned than the hulk so it's not as necessary to use CGI

Recently I've read the first 85 chapters of solo levelling. Absolutely brilliant! Unfortunately the chapters have stopped in English as someone got ill

anyone see the panel from Thor: The Worthy #1, it clearly shows Superman and Wonder Woman

it's obviously a nod to JLA/Avengers but could it be more perhaps?, is it possible that another cross over is on the way?

@FullbringIchigo Oooh. I honestly don't know. Pretty out of the loop. I know Supes has dropped his secret identity now, but if they will continue giving Bendis money...

@KALofKRYPTON yeah people are still upset about that one and we know at some point they are going to change it back anyway

i wonder how though, maybe he will go around and use the memory erasing kiss on everyone

@FullbringIchigo Any number of magic characters could probably get it done. Zatana could probably do it.

@KALofKRYPTON yeah but however it happens it's going to feel like a bit of an ass pull because on one side your going to have the people who didn't want the whole losing his secret to happen now using it as validation they was right and on the other your going have the people who liked it saying they gave in to pressure and went back on it

either way DC are going to upset people

at least they seem to have their animation side on point, now they just need to sort out the live action side

Even people who like Bendis' work on characters not of his making have to concede that most people really don't.
He's like the second coming of JMS!

A lot to unpack lately with DC and Diamond, sounds like DC will stop using Diamond all together in favour of two new distributors they have set up. Normally I'd say it's good to not have a monopoly on these types of things to increase competitive pricing and to help with month long blackouts like Diamond suffered but it seems like it's more expensive, either with time or money for retailers to use the new distributors.

Not really sure what's going to happen, my LCS is always saying the margin on floppies is already thin and they mainly do them because people will come in the store to pick them up but look around and buy back issues and protection. Could be a good thing if they stopped stocking DC, just because my furlough is coming to an end and I don't really have the money to keep everything going. That being said, I'd at least like to get Three Jokers and Death Metal and its various tie ins. I'll probably try and have a chat with them this week about it though I suspect the news will be too recent for them to have formed a plan. We are UK too so I reckon that makes things a bit more complicated.

In other news...about news... Newsarama has been absorbed in gamesradar properly. It already wasn't the best mobile layout and seems to have been made worse by its homogenisation. So looks like I don't have any sites left to get comics news!

@ralphdibny I always wondered why my LCS stocked so many floppies, they never seemed to sell. I have to admit, I just wait for the volumes to come out. This DC news is interesting though, I hope it means they can create a wider audience because superheroes have never been at a higher popularity but comics are still seen as counter cultural. Perhaps we could see comics back in the supermarkets instead of only in dedicated stores?

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett my shop just gets floppies for pull lists, occasionally getting extra copies if they think it's going to be popular. They do have a rack of newish floppies for this reason and also because of people who didn't pick up their pulls.

I think DC were trying this supermarket thing again with their Giants line in American Wal marts which they eventually brought over to the direct market. It didn't really appeal to me though because of the amount of reprinted material. They did release the original stories from those first books as standard comics for direct but the original stories from the second wave of their supermarket Giants line seem to be releasing digital only, for now at least.

We do have the panini/Titan reprints in supermarkets and whsmith at least! Again though, unless it's from a book that's not already on my pull list from the LCS, it's probably of little value to me. Sometimes I pick them up for the posters though lol.

I'm not sure if I'd go in for supermarket comics anyway. The condition of the books already vary wildly, especially in somewhere like forbidden planet but even in the LCS, I'd dread to think what they'd look like stuffed into magazine racks in a supermarket!

Does anyone here like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? I thoroughly enjoyed the first two volumes and Black Dossier.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I've read the first two ages ago and love them, I have every volume after that too but I've never gotten around to reading them

ralphdibny

Draco_V_Ecliptic

@ralphdibny Same! Well, I have the 'Nemo' tales, dunno if there are any other ones, but, yeah, I think the series ran it's course and Moore moved on to his bumper book of magic, yet to be released, afaik.

I'd love to get it once it comes out, though.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic ah I haven't got Nemo, I think the supposedly final volume of loeg finished up last year, I think it was called Tempest, it's the only one I have as actual comics instead of the trades

I believe after the black dossier, there is century 1910, 1969, 2009 and tempest as well as the Nemo books

ralphdibny

Draco_V_Ecliptic

@ralphdibny Thank you, I'll get round to them.
