So, in an effort to gain a wider audience for the video reviews, I submitted the videos to That Guy with the Glasses, a popular internet site that features various reviews of games, horrible movies, and the like.
And the first trial video (my Top 15 WTF Moments) is now up. Within a half hour of its posting, 1,000 more views just got counted on it, so hurray! So check it out, check out the rest of the site (in particular the Nostalgia Critic), and answer me this question:
Should my next trial videos be ones I've already done, two new ones, one new one and one I've already done? YOU MAKE THE CALL! Read more!

Not the Teen Titans, but at the same maturity level.
Yeah, I've pretty much abandoned the idea of the Atop the Fourth Wall book. No guarantee of sales... plus I do get money every time you guys view these (more from Blip than Revver), so watch to your hearts' content!
(Revver version up ASAP)

Blue Beetle, arguably the greatest book in the mainstream market, has been cancelled.
But The Boys, Garth Ennis' effing The Boys sold 39,000 copies and is on the Top 100 list for Diamond's Sales report for September.
A comic featuring an awesome supporting cast, witty humor, and a likeable superhero has been cancelled because no one was buying the book (around 12,000 sales).
And yet The Boys, a dumbass book filled with foul language, uberviolence, unlikeable characters, and superheroes acting like complete nimrods and jerks is still breaking the Top 100 sales.
(Important, but NSFW question Behind the cut!)
Can someone please explain to me why someone would prefer this:

Yesterday, my mother was joking around with me when she saw this cover to a plumbing magazine called Angie's List.
Something about the artwork seemed familiar to me, and then it hit me:
This is from the last page of Infinite Crisis #1, with pencils by Phil Jimenez. Now, it's entirely possible that the artist just used the original art for a reference when they drew it, but looking at the inking lines, the sizes and proportions, and the like it seems to be awfully close to the original art.
We're asking Angie's List for a comment, but none so far. Think I should e-mail DC or Phil Jimenez? Read more!

I've been seeing a lot of people getting upset over the Robin, Nightwing, and Birds of Prey are ending. It should be noted that all of these are doing so at the same time as the "Battle for the Cowl" mini-event over in Batman, and as much as I'd like to separate Nightwing and Birds of Prey from the Bat-verse, they're still pretty linked to it.
As such, I just want to address the fact that sometimes it's easy to panic over things like this and worry that our favorite titles won't be coming out, but remember that #1 issues tend to sell better these days than ones that are over #100, plus gives new readers the chance to jump on. Batman is certainly not going to be dying and I highly doubt these professionals don't have storylines already planned for their series. As such, I say just be patient, enjoy the books while they're coming back, and eagerly await Robin, Nightwing, and Birds of Prey #1.
Otherwise, if you continue to panic, after these books reappear, it's very likely you'll regret it. Why? Because you'll do this:
And now back to our regularly-scheduled (yeah, right) Blog. Read more!
