I just learned that a mini series of Metropolis is in the works! With a $10 million dollar budget per episode. Cool beans. Personally I think the mini-series is the best format for adaptations. Screw trying to fit something into 2-3 hours and sacrificing elements. And multiple movies from one story/book seems greedy or whatnot. Anyway.... Here's hoping they do it justice.

I'm not using covers for my comic, since it's a neverending series of intermixing stories. I'll have to make a cover eventually, though, when there's a hard copy for sale down the road [I have a point in mind where it might make sense to declare it a "volume".] And having made quite a few book covers, I'm not too worried about coming up with something.

But I just wanted to say this regarding comic covers: When I'd been a kid I'd always been annoyed when the cover showed something that never happens in the comic. For a made up example: If the cover shows a giant robot hand clutching a superhero who is obviously in danger/in pain/(seemingly) bested and then I read the comic and the giant robot's hand never actually clutches the hero at all... this just bugs me. Oh sure, I get the idea, that it's supposed to give us a the GIST. Nevertheless, it bugs me. I feel cheated. Maybe try to avoud "false events" on the cover.

There are always new people drawn to the comic, and they'll have things to say. And even if the author doesn't see them (but likely will) the comment will be there for other new readers to see, or even stimulate their thought or enjoyment of the comic. So no, I don't see anything wrong with commenting on past comics.

Of course the real challenge will be not ignoring my werewolves for Zelda! :)

Hey there Mouse! Welcome! I've been drawing my webcomic for about the same amount of time. I guess that makes me a 'noob' by your standards. And here I felt accomplished to some degree. ;) I had a pretty great day, as I am assured of Zelda in about 48 days. Other than that, same 'ol stuff.

To answer about my comic, the banner says enough. :)

Feel free to jump into the crazy goodness here.

Glad to have you aboard.

Just wanted to say welcome to you even though I don't have a comic to recommend in that vein. Not my cup tea. But always nice to have someone join the tea table. Have fun!

I felt rather geeky because I watched it live. I happened to remember that info would be released soon, thought I'd check if it came already, and then saw the live broadcast would be in about an hour (at the time). So I sent it to the big TV to watch.
(I've never done anything like this/that before - watching a live stream for announcing something.)

You would have heard much "WHOA!" and "YES!" coming from me. Mostly during the Mario and Zelda trailers.

I'm pretty stoked that I figured out Mario. It certainly doesn't look like a Mario game at the start. But I said in my head "Mario? Nahhhhhhhh. Can't be...." it IS!

As I said in my own thread, the only thing that matters to me REALLY is Zelda.

I'm intrigued by the HD Rumble. Having experienced the LAUNCH of the ORIGINAL rumble, I'd like to see it improved.

SOOOOOOOO GLAD mine is already ordered and is being shipped to me by the release date. (supposedly). NO going to a freaking HUGE line at some ridiculous hour!

I had thought the idea had been to NOT have a Mary Sue. I'll assume sarcasm. :)

I can see what you're saying. To someone not into it it does look "same". Quite so. But you also have to understand, I played the ORIGINAL on the ORIGINAL. And every one since (not counting hand helds, I never had a hand held device.) It's a deep seeded love. (I suppose the same could be said for Pokemon, right?)

For the record, there is a continuity. There are 3 timelines going on - and granted it's confusing. It has a lot of the same elements over and over, but always has new things, too. Or new characters. Or places. And sometimes old stuff comes back. But it's never EXACTLY the same thing. For instance: Zelda will be captured at the very beginning of some and not until the end in others. It's always a new adventure, even though it has the same tentpoles each time.

Funnily I'm the guy who didn't like Majora as much, since it departed from the norm. ;) Link's Awakening ALSO takes place away from the true adventure/history.

nearmintmill:oh i'm sure i'll need switch for new games namely whenever they come out with another metroid. i just tend to not buy a system until its absolutely necessary. like when they stop making games for the older system. but thankfully thats not the case here.


I like Metroid. But the one for the Gamecube (I think that's what it had been on) where it had been "3D" for the first time... I couldn't stand it. EVERY place looked the SAME and the maps were so confusing and it took FOR.EV.ER. to GO anywhere and I'd get lost and not know what it even is I'm supposed to be doing... might just be me, but it sucked. I tried a few times (restarting). Never got through it.

But I can see why you'd want it. For me, the only video game needed is Zelda.
And if they make the mods available for Skyrim like they did on XBOX One, I might have to re-do that, too.

But Zelda is primarily the reason I still play video games, because it exists. :)

Frankly I don't care if they ever release any other games for it. ZELDA is all I need.

(yeah, sure, I'll wind up with other games down the line... just saying.)
I've never played Pokemon in my life. Never going to. I find it difficult to believe it's still a thing. Not meant as insult to anyone or the game. Just surprising to me it's lasted this long.

Super Mario ODYSSEY looks amAZing though! Due out for Xmas.

I WANT A CTHULHU movie. Just some Lovecraft goodness I need more cosmic horror in my life please

Have you seen this one? It's actually quite good. It might not be what you imagined or expected, but it's awesome nonetheless. It's made in 2005, but it's crafted to look like it had been made in the 1930's

Call of Cthulhu

Anyone else got their pre-order for Switch and Zelda?

I am so relieved that we don't have to WAIT, again. All too often the fantabulous new Zelda games are pushed further down the line... but we get it around the corner!

So yeah, Best Buy will even ship it to you (allegedly by actual release date) FREE.
No standing in line at midnight at a store or such nightmares. Did that horrible scenario with the Wii. But no, directly to me. NICE.

TOO EXCITED.

I'd been a little worried Talbot might be a Mary Sue, because right now it seems like everything works out for him. This is by circumstance/set up of the story and due to the way the world of the comic functions and such. And he has had some troubles. But in taking the test, I used the entirety of what I know about the future with him as well.

Talbot - 21
It would be less, I'd imagine, if there weren't the set-up of getting him into town. But probably not much given the actual questions.

Another new person! Yea! {Not sarcasm, actual joy.} Welcome, welcome! As I tell most, you'll find an equal amount of serious & silly here. And plenty of great comics, of course! Best of luck to you, and have fun.

Sorry to hear of your woes. Please know the only reason "The sun will shine again" is a cliche is because it's very true.

Mine comic is pretty darn upbeat after the initial (mild) conflict that sets the character on a journey...
And I'm always told is has nice colors. :)

Let me begin by saying that on the whole I am against remakes. For me, 3% of remakes are worth doing and 1% of those that get made are done well/right/justice for all the reasons of updating without destroying, and having a new view to share and add along with being respectful to the original.

This 1% I'd like to see done to Metropolis, the 1929 Fritz Lang classic. Not that it needs a remake, but it would be cool to showcase how far the art of cinema has come since that masterpiece, and how the issues resonate even more so today. I'd like to see it done with as little dialogue as possible, preserving the silence. I wouldn't demand black & white or that it be devoid of sound (who doesn't want to HEAR the bustling master city?!), that would defeat the purpose. But there's so much wonderful (granted over the top due to the era) expressive acting in the original, very few words are needed. Done without the extra flair, it would be chilling I think.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents for this topic.

Added 2 cents:
It would also allow the WHOLE story to be shown. Not sure if you all know about the missing reels and re-edits and whatnot hell this poor movie went through. But with a remake it can all be included and WON'T be sliced apart or the messages/plot altered.
