Which banned member would win in a fight? - Page 4

post #46 of 80
Up to about 8th grade, what discretionary income I didn't use on clothes went to (Marvel) comics, especially the X-men, but had some DC (The Dark Knight series for example) and the entire original Phoenix Saga.  In the ensuing years, I traded interest (to girls) and my brothers stole all of my comics.  It was a nice while it lasted.  One of my good friends went to the Pasadena Arts School, and is an illustrator.  She is *really* amazing, but call me old school, but prefered the old John Byrne and Romita drawn comics (and of course, the Millers) to all this new stuff I see.

And you couldn't have 2 interests? I agree, most of then current crop are all T&A artists... ever since Art Adams and Macfarlane came out, everyone seemed to copy them.. Ron Lim et al..

HA. Disjointed posting GO. Comic books. On my 21st birthday I held a billiards tournament for my first edition mint Crisis On Infinite Earths. Alan Moore is awesome, I was really pissed that League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen sucked so bad, I'm waiting for someone to get off their ass and make a new Swamp Thing movie. I have mixed feelings about Watchmen - The movie. I couldn't bare it if they screwed it up. I'd have to light myself on fire in protest. Frank Miller = Hero. Two words SIN and CITY... the end.

I think LXG's publicity was so bad that when I finally saw it I thought it was kind of watchable, although deeply flawed. Swamp Thing, though -- that was awful. Louis Jourdan (quite a dapper fellow, BTW) must really have needed the money.

I did have two. Clothes and girls. But I'll freely admit that the first quickly became an adjunct of the second.

I hated LXG... they really cocked up an excellent story . I read an initial script of the Watchmen movie... very very different ending, and it sucked the egg, but that was back in 1989. Here is the link: 1989 Watchmen Movie script Frank Miller, what an extraordinary talent. Sin City was awsome. I really liked the retelling of the battle of Thermopylae in his 300. Thoughts on the "Dark Knight Strikes Again"? Misunderstood work of genius or a rotten egg?

AlanC: Just curious, how much were you able to sell off your comics for? It seems like the market for comics peaked over 10+ years ago. T4Phage: When you listed all your comics, why didn't you list the Born Again saga in the Daredevil comics when Miller was still writing for that series? That has to be one of my favorite all time stories.

I'll second that... truely amazing. And the art from Mazzucchelli was top notch for its day, and holds up well. Art that does not detract from the storyline is (to me) as equally important as an outstanding story. Daredevil is quite possibly my favorite of all the Marvel good guys. (Spidey being a runner up) I've always preferred DC villians though - especially ones who get their own series. Eclipso being my personal fav. amongst that crowd. Now that we are TOTALLY off topic on this thread - Daredevil v.s. Kalra v.s. Greyson v.s. Bresch ?

Yes, I do have the entire DD Miller run, but I have so many comics that it is hard to remember them all... plus I have the Miller/Varley Elekra lives, and The Miller/Sienkevicz (sp?) Daredevil Graphic Novel. Tokyo Slim, since Murdoch is both and attorney and Superhero he wins hands down..

No, no, no. Its like arguing who would win a fight between Superman and Batman. Even though Superman has more powers, Batman would find a way to defeat Superman somehow. Matt Murdoch would end up pulling his punches and letting his opponent live another day. Thus, I'd have to give to somebody like grayson, especially if he wasn't afraid to fight dirty and twist his knowledge of the law for his own dark purposes. The question is who would win in a court of law, grayson or RJ Man? Does anybody know what's happened to the whole Electra/ Daredevil saga? When I was in Barnes, the new graphic novels have rewritten the whole saga where Electra's father is no longer a Greek diplomat and where his death didn't lead her on her path to self-destruction. The one thing you learn to appreciate about Miller is how he doesn't overwhelm his stories with all the verbosity Claremont exhibited. If you look back, Claremont's words overwhelmed the story where it became more of a book, with some pictures, instead of a comic book.

I don't think the Murdoch of Miller (especially in the final stories) would have pulled punches... so I think DD is still the winner . Superman v.s Batman... of course Batman. I agree totally about Miller, although Claremont in his stint with the X Men was pretty good (Mutant Massacre).

I have been holding my breath since I heard Robert Rodriguiez was working on a Sin City film with Frank Miller as Co-Director. My wait is almost over, only 12 more days until it is released. I recently got back into comics a little, having been a huge Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and X-Men fan as a kid. Then the fan boys became too much for me. But when I got back into art I got back into comics, if only for the art work. Miller being one of my favorites. Alan Moore kicks ass too, and I hope Watchmen is done right. Hijack complete.

To see in person? Anyway, your orneriness has a certain Gallic panache, dare I say what the French call a certain I-don't-know-what...
