2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
I’m not sure what to make of this first look at Preacher that you can find after the cut. But it’s hard to tell anything from just over a minute of footage. And if you know nothing about Preacher…this trailer really won’t tell you much besides the fact that a man of the cloth isn’t afraid to kick a whole lot of ass.
If you are like me you don’t watch commercials. You probably rarely watch live TV. And even when you do, you wait 15-20 minutes until after the start of a show to start watching it so that you can skip the commercials.
In doing that it is also easy to miss things like say the pieces of Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 as you skip ahead. (Editor’s note: I wouldn’t exactly say you are missing anything there Jimmy.)
After the cut, a heads up as to why you should take it easy on the fast forward button this Sunday…as if you need to guess…
One of the great things about all these Secret Wars crossovers is that so many are quality reads. The quality varies of course. Some are outstanding while others trail behind, but most everything is worth checking out. This also makes it incredibly tough to rank them.
There are almost 50 unique series now. And when attempting to rank them books fall into clusters where there is little difference in quality. Hence when a series has a new issue that is awesome or degrades in quality from its predecessors, the series can seem to drop or rise greatly in the rankings.
After the break we’ll look at this weeks biggest movers and shakers on the Secret Wars Power Rankings. There are also three new books this week which had a ripple effect in the rankings. And some of my cohorts drop by with their overrated/underrated opinions. (Spoiler alert, overrated: Watson.)
Looks like Dominic Cooper, famous for playing Howard Stark (aka Iron Man’s pappa) in Captain America is the new front runner to play the lead in Preacher; a Vertigo Comics series about a disillusioned preacher trying to find and kill the creator. This property has been in development many times, so we are skeptical. Sound like a good choice IF they move forward? Source:CBR
