I've got a Johna Hex Click and I remember when he was announced as being in that particular set, a lot of people on the Clix forums were quite happy about it.  He's a popular character despite not being a big name to a causal comic fan (I had no idea who he was until he was in JLU).

I'm kinda intrigued to know what other properties they've given to Hollywood to adapt.

There's a new entry about the cast of the Watchmen film that has a cast listing finally. Also, a short interview with a new artist jumping onto the Batman book in October.

And hello JP, you should message me sometime on AIM, or email me or something you dirty person you.

Alright.... well, this is what I get for trying to create a hastily thrown together blog post... but Spriggan so you know, those pictures should come up as smaller thumbnails that link to the larger picture. I apparently cannot do that. And I think I just gave you an awesome reason to implement "previewing" blog posts before they go live.

So... thanks when you get around to fixing it... Sorry I'm incompetent.

And next week, the fight's will be BIGGER!

Flicker has a feature that creates thumnails so link to those instead of the full blown images Gemm.

Code: [Select]
<a href="url to full sized image" target="_blank"><img src="url to flicker thumbnail" alt="" border="0" /></a>

Nor am I sure we can repost whole pages, let alone multiple from the same story, online and not violate copyright.  You should discuess that with SE, he'll know more then me.

In the context of a review, it's like quoting the text. The page would essentially be an extended quote, and the necessity of it might be questionable, but I don't think we could be sued over it. Preferable is to crop it to a couple panels, but a whole page shouldn't bee too much of a problem. Multiple pages, however, seems excessive.

And since the blog entry isn't a review.... we probably need to not do it again.

That's what I was thinking.

Though that doesn't mean Gemm has to drop the feature but will have to be a little creative to get around this problem.

blog == reviews; entirely. There will be other featuers besides news/reviews posted to the blog. So don't go panty-bunching when you see something that isn't exactly what you want to see.

no, gemm, this is a legal concern. Not all blogs == reviews. When a blog entry *is* a review, that's one thing. But that one wasn't. I have no problem with the blog entries not being reviews. I welcome it. I only have a problem with what sort of accountability we'll be held to by the copyright owner when we publish something that is distinctly *not* within our legal rights regarding their copyright. Please don't take this concern lightly.

mmmm... this is such an agonizing process. Me learning html = bad posts. Certainly doesn't add up to me wanting to post too often since I'll probably get something wrong. I'm not bad-mouthing Sprig in any way. He's been a huge help to me with this stuff. Plus he seems to be rather patient with my bumbling.

ugh. So full of hate.

Incidentally, the picture was in a press release and is specifically intended for use like this. So it's cool.

I'm too lazy to grab the link but ICv2 has the other cover for this comic and goes in depth on how the new costume pays homage to the orginal one.

As for me, I'm waiting for spiderman to start packing heat.
