I'll see it. I don't know anything about the character.

Aw heck! Who needs actors! Not when you can use CGI to give Manga characters big eyes.
From now on, all movies will hire one actor for motion capture. All character rendering will be done with CGI. Whether they are male, female, dog, cat, robot, or monster... it's CGI.
It looks interesting.

When I left work at 12:30 PM yesterday, there was about 3" of snow on the side mirror. Today, there was another 2.5" on it. I know there was some melting. I'd say we got at least 6" of snow. That's uncommon for us. Normally we get sleet or freezing rain. The sun finally came out today, so most of the roads are clear, unless it a shaded side street. It's supposed to get down to the 20's so black ice tonight is likely.

When I started getting spam, I clicked on so other vforums and saw that almost all the other messageboards were overrun with spam and abandoned. Some required admin approval for registration and I suspect that they were abandoned also.

I'm starting to see the remnants of the storm come down here in the form of rain now. The winds are strong. It's supposed to be in the 40s later tonight. I was hoping to kick my lousy cold in these next 24 hours. {Angry}

Posting seems to have gotten easier here. No blank loading pages. The black Friday timing makes sense.

The solicitation was limited to 75, but nothing stops them from giving out certificates at dhows lr store signings. :/ They won't sell 75 anyway. Maybe 20,

I'm starting to think it was a spam attack coinciding with black friday. It's like the server was overloaded with traffic. The support forum was flooded with spam and it usually doesn't get spam. Also, my spam filters are probably using intense server processing because I'm blocking hundreds of IP addresses, email addresses, and keywords. Most of the boards that still exist at these site closed down or require admin approval to register.

We had a mini-snowpocalypse. I worked 7 hours and it took me 3-1/2 hours to drive home. Normally it takes about an hour and 5 minutes. I was having to sit through traffic lights 4 times. It was 15 miles of slush and 15 miles of wet rain. I should have left early, but I'd worked 12 hours of overtime in 2 days. I didn't want to convert it to straight time. We are amazingly far behind. i've never seen so much material being received. We have about 25 welded cabinets to inspect and half of those take 2 hours a piece to uncrate. If Idid nothing else, there's about 50 hours backlog of work to do which is over and above my weekly obligations. I guess it'll be waiting for me in January, because I only work 5 more days this year. {Smile} It was preapproved vacation a couple of months ago. {Tongue Out}

I got my signed copy the other day. It's basically the blue variant cover issue signed and the COA is a smaller thin white paper from American Myth saying it was limited to 75 copies. But there's no real number on them to say it's 1 of 75 or anything. The completist in me was curious about their COAs with their signed issues.....they're not like Dynamic Forces certificates where they're numbered.

I haven't seen the loadtime errors in awhile. It was bad last week but this week seems better.

It's a little slow, but I'm not getting errors. I've worked 28 hours in the last 2 days. I'm trying to get caught up because I only work 6 more days this year. The rest is paid time off & weekends.

I've located the support admin's email address and sent him an email. Hopefully, I'll get a response.

Well, no improvements. I would have expected things to get better or go offline completely.

I was told that Image required cross advertising between the creators. Image is more decentralized than a real publisher. They are more of a co-op. When you say Image should link to the blog, I think you are saying Sam Wood (whatever his name is) should link to the blog.

lol.....imagine if they started linking his blog. There are more inspiring stories there of value aside of his regular convention interviews. Image Comics needs to retweet that blog too. Especially if they're looking to get better storytelling in their comic line.

Looks like my copy of issue #1 signed by JCV is being shipped tomorrow. My preorder of it with the ones for issue #2 got split. I guess Diamond had them signed from their unsold stock. Issue #2 ships on....{Confused} ....who knows.....I bet it will be resolicited in previews again to see if they get more orders to fill the required minimum print run.





I don't know how much unsold stock Diamond keeps. I'm not sure if Vaughn takes the excess or if Diamond store it. #2 will probably be delayed until the summer.

I will not use proboards again because of the stupid interface. It reminds me of the interface in this video.



On a positive note, the site that hosts my DEFIANT site is getting the best reviews online and they never nagged me to upgrade to a pay service. I just have to remember to log in once a month.

Shooter's latest interview inspires another fan to make a youtube video about it:
