Oh hell yes I am.  I really hope it stays,  the fact they're cutting Preacher short has rustled me badly..  I was skeptical of preacher given its probably my favourite graphic novel of all time but it won me over with the last season they just nailed perfectly. It diverts too much on some storylines but hits others perfectly so overall I feel it's a good enough balance. The casting was nearly perfect.  I came to accept TV Tulip and nearly liked her more than book tulip for a while too.

 

Still waiting for someone to get the balls to tackle transmetropolitan though.

I hate TV Tulip.. I dont know what it is.. I think the fact that shes not hot pisses me off.. and shes always whining... I mean she did do that alot in the book too but still.... I really hope they stick closer to the book with The Boys.... I am actually just finishing up reading the story arch for the first time

Some casting with the boys has bugged me already too but I'll have patience.  And re: not hot Tulip I know right?  It's like she's some asexual lesbian or something.  Plus the fact she's a walking action hero when comic tulip was just a good shot.  

 

I'm going to revisit the boys soon but I recently got my hands on the Loan Wolf and Cub omnibus so I'm working through that.  It's fooking amazing fyi. Right up there with my all time favourite

Happy birthday bro!  What's the plans for the day?  

 

Yeah they killed off Preacher so the next season will rush through all the content left :(

 

Lone wolf and cub is the manga which all of the Baby Cart / Shogun Assassin samurai films were based on.  There's about 15 I think of the omnibus version,  600+ page books but they're absolutely epic and completely absorbing works.  

 

Frank Miller cites it to be his biggest inspiration. 

 

Tarantino lists it as one of his all time favourite films.  

 

Road to Perdition is basically a tribute to it.  

 

Here's a good recent article about it and whether the Hollywood remake machine should attempt it.

Never dabbled in superhero actually, I prefer my comics a bit darker lol

 

Oh yeah I've read heaps of crossed..  There's a lot of arcs that I haven't covered but the stories tend to seem the same. Any arcs you'd recommend?

For Crossed... Vol 6 Badlands is probably my favorite.. If you like really dark comics.. Crossed Vol 3 Psychopath is nuts! really creepy but good. Also Crossed wish you were hear is a good one.. it as a web comic but they made trades for it later. Also a little different but dark and pretty funny is Witch Doctor.. its about a doctor that deals with special cases.. possessed kids, vampires witches and ghosts stuff like that. If you arent into heros much but into dark stuff check out Luthor Strode hes a super hero but its really dark and not much like some basic DC or Marvel hero

4 episodes in and keep waiting for it to fall off and it keeps getting better. Episode 4 might have been the strongest.

Couldn't be better timing for the show. It's a great contrast to Marvel/DC, it's a great answer to the "Super Hero fatigue", and even though it was written in the pre-Trump era, it relates so much to the current political climate. I've enjoyed it a lot more than any other series through 4 episodes so far.

I hope it never gets a big budget. I don't need to see Supes throwing CGI hands for an hour. Forces it to get creative with it's world building like early GoT use to. An example is when Elizabeth Shue's character is in negotiations with the mayor of Baltimore about selling them the rights to a super hero to be stationed there. You even see a superhero fly by in the window in the background. Really enjoying the love/hate relationship it has for Superheroes. It glorifies them but makes them really human. Pays respect to the genre but tears down all the usual tropes and makes you realize if Superheroes were real, they probably would be more about commercializing, branding, and politicized. Hope it gets ALL the seasons.

Im on eisode 6 and damn this **** is good

Same.

Thought episode 5 dipped in quality a bit from the first 4 even though it gave us the 2 best quotes of the series so far. 

"You played my butt like jazz"

"I'm sayin if there is some geezer up there with a big white beard, he's a world heavyweight ****. He's got a hard-on for mass murder and giving kids cancer, and his big answer to the existential cluster-f*** that is humanity is to nail his own bleeding son to a plank. That's a **** move, come on, even you've got to agree with me there. We should just lob a f***ing nuke at him and get it over with" lol

Episode 6 was solid though. 

Endgame comes out on digital tonight and it's going to have to wait.

Finished it last night solid 9/10, can't wait for season 2

Homelander starts off a boring generic Superman ripoff and eventually works his way to possibly the best character on the show expect Billy & Frenchie for me.

Actually I should probably explain that better or I sound like a right nutter lol I just like that he became much more than just another generic Superman rip-off. He makes for a great villain which I appreciate. 

No had never heard of it or Preacher before I started watching it, will need to check out some of Ennis's other works.

GOATlander stole the show. Billy is p5p but somewhere along the way he lost his Jack Sparrow swagger and got too serious. Homelander is the best character in a while.

Nope but I've heard the portrayals are a bit nerfed for the show, except for SJWlight who apparently got a big buff. Which makes me think they'll do a Homelander vs Supes for season 2. Maeve and A Train both seem like they're near the end of their heel turn arc and the Boys both have 2 Supes on their side now already. How could you not like Homelander?

I disagree. I've read how much worse he is in the comics and they made it much more likable for the show for a reason. He's a cuck but he's more Joffrey than Ramsey Bolton and like Joffrey, the show is more interesting when he's on camera. His fake patriotism, speeches, and lack of fooks he gives is hilarious. The show is good at graying characters morality. The Deep is billed as a raper in his opening scene and then by the end of the season they somehow make you feel sorry for him. They did the same to Homelander to an extent. When he dies, the show dies imo.

Hmm I guess you put way more thought into it than I do.. but Homelander is still a d bag and thats what his character is supposed to be comic or not
