Ok foIks, I can't take the DC relaunch belly aching anymore so here's a follow up Youtube video. Just think "What If"

Ya know what folks check out this video first from another guy who reviewed Suicide Squad #1 also. If I had discovered this guy's video before I made my 2nd one I wouldn't have bothered to make it. That's because he said it even more succinctly then I did with even more sarcasm and wit. His video totally upstages mine and I don't mind cause it cracked me up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8nm8LK53zE

And this one is mine it has a much shorter running time.

As I did to the last posting i thought I'd add a little extra something to this one beyond a link that will send you all to another one of my droning monologues about my likes and dislikes about the new Squad series. This is some art work I found at Deviant Art. There's other good Captain Boomerang fan art but this one got my attention because it was very unique aside from being well done. It's a water color painting but unlike my water color paintings this one is done in my of a traditional water color style mine never really end up looking this way. Another thing I like about this is that it really captures the personality of our favorite Task Force X Aussie. This was done by an artist who is obviously a big Boomerang fan and goes by the screen name of Waterwindow.

  1. Captain Boomerang is one of the personalities that is irreplacable and this artist captures this perfectly.

    This is what I kind of feel like is missing from the Tiger. No writer really knows who or how to write him and thats what I want to talk about with other Bronze Tiger and suicide squad fans over on thebronzetiger.blogspot.com

    I condensed the title name and I linked it right to your site. Check me out.

  2. so i see you've finally got yourself an icon for your screen name. that's so much better then the Blogger logo. i gotta run an errand but i'll check out your site and get back to you later tonight i promise. in the mean time now that you don't have that generic Blogger logo any more why don't you add yourself to my followers list in the right hand column since you pop up here fairly regularly?

  3. Second follower of thebronzetiger.blogspot.com! I'm a fan, and you've reminded me that I really need to get back to covering Ben Turner at my DC Bloodlines blog.

    As for the video, it seems like DC is once again trying to have it's cake and eat it, too. Continuity is clearly an overcomplicated muddle, but thankfully I don't care much, because I only follow three of their books these days. Suicide Squad will not be one of them, because if I want to fuck Amanda Waller, they're doing it wrong.

  4. That's a great rant. I love it, and it's true, people should look at how good the book is overall and not get hung up on one little thing. It is difficult when you're taking a character that is so iconic and changing her drastically. But I think, as long as her personality doesn't change and the Wall doesn't start handing out flowers and become a den mother people will start coming around. Like I said on your other posting, I had a first visceral reaction to her new look as well. But I think that's purely a female body image thing. I never had a reaction like that to the change in Harley. In fact, my reaction to that one was "Hey! Cool!"

    Watched it. Sucked. That dude drones on longer than it takes me to read the comics he's reviewing, and mostly just repeats the obvious. Amanda Waller has got to look like a wall in the same way Superman can't be a lanky Gomer Pyle looking motherfucker and still be Superman. There are tons of middle age white military dudes who act pretty much exactly like Waller. The difference is that they're the "masters of the universe," entitled by society to be mega-jerks. As a fat black middle aged woman, you know The Wall had to take everything she had by force and brains. Nobody handed her anything, and that doesn't come across when she looks like Angela Bassett.

  6. A fat short Amanda Waller is iconic, as at every time icons are messed with, people will get upset.
    I'd prefer she would keep her larger self. Still, I hope she will be well writen enough that she will still be Amanda Waller, because guys, a woman, nice looking or not, rarely gets to have any "man's" position in the world without having to prove herself over and over even if a man wouldn't.
    Someone said "The world will be an equality place when an incompetent woman can be the director of a multinational" or something like that.
    Waller is calling the shots in Suicide Squad?
    Until it's proven to me other wise, that is where she belongs for me, unrelated to her dress size.
    Boomerang looks great in that fan art. That artist is amazing. I love it every thing I find Harkness art from him/her.

  7. geez Frank, stop beating around the bush and tell me what you really think. well i think nuff said about all that cause i got nothing to add to my case for the book. i'm gonna just get #2 next month and we'll see what's what then.

  8. This whole new universe thing feels like an uneasy dream to me. Changing the Wall was a bad move. But I hope they can pull it off.
    And the Squad all being fresh fish is so foul Joker fish stop laughing. But all in all I'm on board,at least for right now. And Frank I'm coming over to bloodlines.

  10. hey Dale, i've given BT some love over here of the non-sexual kind :) as for the figure question i'm afraid my action figure collecting days are behind me. and if i may endorse myself, "the 3 reasons you never thought of why BT is a bad ass" was rather brilliant if i do say so myself.

  12. i'm sure it's no coincidence that freeing the hikers happened on the heels of what will hopefully be the last trip he ever makes to N.Y.C. their imprisonment has long been a farce that i think doesn't really serve iran anymore from a diplomatic stand point. not too mention iran gets a cool million bucks of extortion . . er i mean bail money out of the deal too. still, all in all i'm somewhat surprised they got out this soon. it'll be interesting to see what goes on around here locally when they return home. but it's possible they might want to keep the whole thing quiet though. i promise you Dale if i ever run into them i'll ask them how their "Middle East extension course" was. and even if i don't run into them i can at least come up with some funny shit to say for the next demonstration video about this to piss off their fellow leftists. next time a leftist douche bag gives you shit just tell em to go take a hike, along the iraq/iran boarder.

  15. i agree with the video here and the one with the guy in the sunglasses. these people need to chill out and give the new series a chance. i think there is a lot of bitching for the sake of bitching going on.

  16. You can say it again. Going to DC message boards can be taxing.
    Everybody bitches about something, and god forbid, someone trying to be positive around there. They jump imediately over you.
