Chill Bloggity Thing for 9/18/15 or SPX Code Magic!

Since I’m not writing this at near midnight I got some extra writing energy in me for this one. Yay for not writing things half asleep! Oh my goodness though I am on a spree of comic reading. I did write a thing on Danger Club, which is more a big giant nerd out so here’s the link and have at it. I loved writing that piece as it was written out of pure comic book excitement and love. Now I got informed about the SPX code on Comixology giving 50% off on SPX books and I got Charles Forsman’s Revenger #1-4 with the #5 not being part of the sale but I got that anyway and Box Brown’s An Entity Observes All Things. Between my gargantuan Amazon order funded by gift cards and Comixology, I’ve got some good comic reading ahead of me.

Outside of that tomorrow should be pretty low key and I plan on playing some extra writing catch up on a few things outside of blog. I’ve been watching Longmire today though and dang I’ve only got two more episodes left! I can’t imagine how this season is going to end but so far so good. After Longmire is over, it is Bojack Horseman time, oh yes totally Bojack Horseman time. Though tomorrow night is Doctor Who and I can’t wait to watch that. That will be a lot of fun and this should be a cool season ahead, I have high hopes for this. Now that the fall season is getting in full swing next week I’m excited in general for my TV viewing ahead which we’ll talk more about later.

Anyway it is now time to get more comic reading adventures done for the night. Enjoy the evening everyone and hope everyone is doing well out there. Laters!


DC Comics: Please Get a Marvel Unlimited Style Service, That Would Rock

In going through Marvel Unlimited and seeing what all they have I realize that DC Comics needs this kind of service in a big way. For a decent period of time I was a huge DC fan, I was buying about 90 percent DC Comics at one point. Now my buying is much more spread out but for awhile I was mostly a big DC fan. There’s a lot of Marvel I didn’t get to read and Marvel Unlimited has been huge in catching me up with periods of comics I missed. Heck there are books from the few years I didn’t read comics that I hadn’t gotten to read. Now with people digging Marvel Unlimited, why hasn’t DC Comics figured out a way to do this too? It would be amazing! DC has such a ridiculous library of books that people would be getting a DC Comics Unlimited style service day one. So many years of comics in the DC Library and it begs for DC Comics to get on the Marvel Unlimited style train.

DC Comics has so many periods of comics to play with between the Multiverse, Vertigo Comics, and the main DC line, people could spend days in that. With Marvel Unlimited already people are spending time getting to know all the Marvel stories and people would do the same for DC Comics, it would generate so much interest. Considering DC has Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad, and more on the way, this would be perfect! People getting to learn more about the different characters involved in these movies. Easy way to get people hooked into Suicide Squad too. You have Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl on TV and even more opportunities to get people hooked into a DC Unlimited style service, so much comic history!

I hope one day that DC Comics does do an unlimited service. DC Comics Unlimited does have a nice ring to it, though I know they could come up with better. It would be so cool to see. The day DC does this unlimited style service I will be so excited because a DC Comics Netflix would rock on so many levels.
