Things I Like and Dislike for the Week of December 5th, 2018

It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of November 28th, 2018.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?

Martian Manhunter Turns Dark
I’ve read that the new Martian Manhunter series debuting this week takes a darker turn.
I think this is good for DC Universe characters.
They need more dark characters and story lines. This is one of the few things that kind of turns me off from some of DC titles is they just come off as sort of cheesy.
For those searching for key books for their collection and have a few dimes to spend, Martian Manhunter made his first appearance in Detective Comics #225.
So mark this as a like as I’m looking forward to checking out this new volume (12 issue mini-series) from writer Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo. There was even an article on Wall Street Journal about this new series.
Deadpool Kills Santa?

I seriously doubt Deadpool will kill good ‘ol Saint Nicholas but this cover from Nic Klein is just pure awesomeness. This is the same artist who brought us that awesome GPK cover.
There’s a Will Sliney cover that is already sold out at Midtown but honestly, this is the cover (Poyo always bets on Cover A) to grab.
Netflix Cancels Daredevil
Okay, I admit I’m behind watching Daredevil on Netflix as I’ve only watched season 1 so far (I spend all my time working and writing these articles for CHU instead). But this saddens me they’re cancelling Daredevil after season 3.
I really enjoyed Season 1 and was looking forward to many seasons on Netflix to binge watch one day. I already pay for Netflix, Hulu and have Amazon Prime. I really don’t want to pay for yet another streaming service just to watch Disney shows so I’ll likely be missing out.
Maybe I’m not so upset about Daredevil getting canceled, it’s the fact we have to pay for their streaming service if we want to watch Marvel related shows.

That’s all that’s really grinding my gears this week. What’s grinding your gears this week? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Martian Manhunter was a character I never cared about but I’ll at least check out the 1st issue for Rossmo’s art.
    It still grinds my gears that he left Bedlam after the 1st arc and then that dickhead Nick Spencer left the book in limbo when he went to Marvel and ruined every character her touched.
    I like that a Shang-Chi movie is happening.
    I don’t like that every article is only pushing the “diversity” angle and telling very little about the character. The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu magazines are among Marvel’s best releases from the 70s and I’m hoping the original White Tiger appears in the film as well as Daughters Of The Dragon.
    Daredevil S3 was flat out amazing, the cast dynamic was like no other Marvel show, Netflix or otherwise. Charlie Cox and Vincent D’anafrio actually became the characters we expected from growing up with Miller’s run. It was perfect, I can see it ending on the note that nit did but I still wanted a 4th season.
    The cancellation really grinds my gears and Marvel is wasting talent if they don’t keep the same actors and actresses for wherever DD ends up.

    1. I never cared for Martian Manhunter either so I’m looking forward to this new volume. Maybe Orlando will make me a fan.
      I recall Bedlam as well. It was one of the first Image books I read when I was just getting back into comics. I remember being confused on why it just suddenly stopped.

  2. looking forward to the martian manhater series.always loved him.i am now buying severalcopies of that Deadpool killing santa cover.very sad about daredevil getting axed.if Disney did a marvel only streaming service I would pay for that.the d.c.u.streaming service is top notch and well worth the $8 a month.titans is the best show by d.c.i am so sick of diversity I am sick of Richard mayor diversity in comics p.c. culture having to give out trophies to everyone santa claus thank you lobof or killing him and the easter bunny lobo sir would it hurt to include the tooth fairy as well?the tooth fairy is useless .store variants make me upset and dear wallgreens thanks a lot I now have a funco pop habit and it is all your fault spiderverse pops darn you guys thanks for being in my life blind adam out

  3. Daredevil’s cancellation was really unfortunate. Like you, I really don’t want another streaming service. It’s not going to be long where every network has its own streaming channel and you have to pay for each and everyone you want to watch. It’s going to be like the full on cable days all over again.
