It’s now being reported on AFI that Alfred is the last Multiverse reveal.  The Mammoth wave appears to have been scrapped altogether.

Kinda dull so far.  But of course the biggest day of any con is Saturday.

Shang Chi is cool and overdue.  Can Killraven and Ikaris be that far behind?   thud.gif

Iíve noticed Marvel and DC are both announcing a lot of new titles this week.  Makes me wonder what theyíre doing at the panels this week.  Especially DC.  They seem to have a half dozen major panels in four days.

So, best I can tell, DCC goes Thur morning.  Hasbro Marvel Legends is Fri afternoon.  Star Wars is sometime on Fri (I think).  Mattel does not have a panel as far as I can tell.  Unless itís Daniel Pickets panel Sat evening.  Word is, Toddís got nothing to show for DC.  But heís got a boatload or other stuff to show and I think heís on several panels.

Guessing that Todd showing nothing means Mattel has one last volley to fire.  Probably on preview night.  Less than a week away.

Truth is, Iím ready for Mattel to close out.  I wanna see what Toddís got to show.  Now it appears to be NYCC at the earliest.

Based on Altered Carbon, Lost in Space, and Umbrella Academy, Netflix can go big and do it pretty well.  But the complexity of the source material doesnít just play into the special effects.  The story has to be told well.  Thatís why I wanted HBO.

I thick the Witcher might give us a better indication of what to expect.

DCís ďsisterĒ company HBO passed due to the cost.  Hmmmm.  Apparently, Sandman will be more expensive than GoT, the GoT spinoff, or Westworld.  Never mind the new subscribers you might draw in. 

Donít get me wrong, Iím stoked for this.  I just trust HBO more on something as complex as this.  Netflix has a tendency to shovel $$$ and hope for the best.  HBO would take their time and do it right.

Dunno what to expect.  I like the Legion but donít consider myself a hard core fan.  The second Levitz run (82-89) is my go to era.  Both before and after is kinda meh to me. 

Having said that, Iíve really enjoyed Bendis at DC so far.  Action, Superman, Young Justice, and Naomi are all solid to very good books.  Donít care for his curated stuff.  IMHO, Wonder Twins and Dial H are awful.  Yet both minis got extended for another six issues so Iím clearly in the minority. 

Iíll definitely give Legion a chance.  The way heís set up Jon (Superboy) Kent to join has been almost masterful.
