Re: BLAMMO!'S Official NBA Thread

He'd make them better, no doubt.  But I don't know if I'd want to put Lebron next to Simmons and Embiid.  Simmons, especially, would be somewhat redundant playing next to Lebron.  And his lack of shooting would be much more of an issue if he had to play off the ball a lot more (and you're not giving...

Re: BLAMMO!'S Official NBA Thread

I've been having a hard time understanding why the Sixers bothered to trade two lottery picks for Fultz, when they already had Simmons in hand. It seems like they would have been better off just holding on and waiting. Might have been thinking of just having transcendant all-around talent all aroun...

Re: BLAMMO!'S Official NBA Thread

For a long time it's been a drag that the Wolves were in the West.  But watching Giannis, KP, Simmons, and Embiid this year...I'm thinking it won't be long before I'm glad the Wolves are in the West. Whether the Sixers eventually win a title or not, I think it's safe to say The Process worked.  Two ...

Re: BLAMMO!'S Official NBA Thread

After an awful weak for the Wolves, seeing Towns play that well last night restored some of my hope for the future of the team.  That's the Karl Towns that projects as a Top-5 player.  The exceptionally well-rounded offensive player with solid, versatile defense that we see flashes of on a semi-regu...

Re: BLAMMO!'S Official NBA Thread

Small sample size and all, but my MVP and Rookie of the Year picks look spot on.  My Wolves look as disjointed as I expected this early in the season, but our new $150M wing has been impressive.  I expected him to really struggle early as he learned how to play with Butler, but he's been nice and ef...

Re: What're you listening to right now?

Well, my MVP (Giannis) and Rookie of the Year (Simmons) picks are looking good so far.  As a Wolves fan I've been mostly pleased by how it's going so far.  The team is just as disjointed as I expected, but Wiggins looks like he's continuing to progress as a scorer and has been rebounding much better...

Re: Justice League International Omnibus

Wow, they put the bonus book in the middle of the story? That's bizarre. Not a dealbreaker for me, but what an odd call. There's 3 separate stories in that issue.  The bonus book is the 2nd story.  The first story, and the bonus book, are basically Maxwell Lord solo stories, so it's nice spot for t...

Re: January 2018 Solicitations

Does anybody know why the Outsiders collections are so pricy? They are not even oversized.  $50 is a lot to ask for 10 issues. I enjoyed the first a lot (which I got for about $22) but just wonder how these can have such a high msrp. That price is pretty common for their hardcover collections of cl...

Yeah, seeing him on the floor like that was one of the worst injuries I've seen in real time.  Glad for him at least that he got his big contract before something like that happened.  Tatum looks special, at least on the offensive end.  Looks like a lot of quality players were in this draft, but I d...

And Annual #4. It looks like it will be #39-52 and Annual #3-4. That makes more sense.  It also explains the page count being lower than many of the other volumes.  Thanks. The Vol 4 would have the Spectacular magazines right? maybe this ones thin so they can fit both in magazines in the next one? ...

My library was able to borrow the first two volumes of the Adam Strange Archives. This is the first SA Dc material i've read. I'm almost finished with Vol. 2. These were better than expected. I'm going to see if they can get the Hawkman silver age material in as well.  I haven't read Vol. 1 yet, bu...

I can't quite tell from that video, as I don't have my copy yet, but did they include the backups from 8-10 in 'Extras'?  No, the backups stories are included with each of those issues.    The Maxwell Lord "Hostage" Bonus Book from #24 is also included (it was left out of the Vol. 4 trade).   And A...

Re: The Epic collection: What's been released, what's planned, what's left

I count 54, including 8 Star Wars Epics and 3 digital ones.  I'm not a completest on any of the major lines, though I keep being tempted to do that with Captain America.  I tend to avoid the ones where I have Masterworks or an omnibus, and I skip a lot of the 90's material.  I too like to "wait for ...
