    New unboxing video.

    I want to see a Harley Quinn/Pinkie Pie/Power Rangers/Aliens Marine/Poison Ivy teamup.

    So, Lewis, are you going to discuss Bendis heading to DC?

    Here is Prof. Thorgi's great take on it.

    For once, I'm going to be a little demanding.

    I'm the biggest Punisher fan out there, having collected most of the comics, both regular and MAX. Having watched The Punisher on Netflix, I think it's done decently. It's not perfect, and a little more like Prison Break than I would like, but it's decent and fun, and keeps Castle nice and grim.

    Here's my demand. Linkara: Review Punisher MAX: The Slavers, widely considered the darkest and bloodiest of all of Frank's expeditions into the criminal underbelly. Is it perfect? No. Is it terrible? Not if you just like seeing the worst monsters in existence meet a deservedly disgusting end. This is pretty much the Punisher doing what Liam Neeson did, only not with a happy ending and even more brutal methods. Yes, I am aware that slavery exists and it is NOTHING like they portray in fiction (slavers are a lot more subtle than we think, among other factors that would take too long to list).

    And I am aware that Linkara doesn't like Garth Ennis. After reading books like Preacher to see if they were bad, the man has some definite anger issues beyond the norm. That's beside the point. I want Linkara to give us a full review of Punisher MAX: The Slavers and everything he can do to both boost this book and tear it apart. I'd even pay Patreon money for it, if at all possible.

    There.

    So, regarding Steam Wars, I have a "Missed Opportunity" for Linkara.

    The main character is named Bo. Why? Because he's the Luke Skywalker equivalent.

    Bo and Luke.

    The Duke boys.

    You could have had a ton of Dukes of Hazzard gags.

    Another item for Lewis' "Top 15 Mistakes" or overlooks, etc.

    He said during the Blackest Night review that Death of the Endless was "death as compassionate release", Black Racer was "death as an inevitability", Nekron "death as an opponent".

    Neil Gaiman states that was bollocks, and said that Death of the Endless is the ultimate incarnation of death; in other words -- the real death, not a form of death.

    Okay, another mistake/oversight, thhis one from Marville #1:

    1. Mickey saying she'll call Kal "Al" is a reference to Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al".

    2. $500 for concert tickets was a reference to the fact Barbra Streisand tickets were actually that expensive.
