Vol. 5, Issue 30

Happy Thursday, everyone. I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Before we get into the news, I wanted to ask: If I needed to shift Nerd News to another day, which day would you be most likely to read it? Or, does it matter? Let me know in the comments?

Now, onto the good stuff.

  1. The 'no joke' rule wouldn't surprise me. I feel like the comics have had that rule since at least the 'New 52' reboot.

  2. I am so excited about the Dragon Age news!! Now I just have to get a PS4 before it's released so that I can play with friends.


    Those Disney re-imaginings are so awesome. I would love to see a Tiana!

  3. I'm so down for a Full House reunion. The no joke rule for DC films is interesting. On one hand, I do like seeing darker interpretations of comics, but at the same time it's kind of silly to have no comic relief at all.

    Everything I hear about the upcoming Star Wars movie gets me pumped, and that spoiler-y article was no exception.

  4. Hmmm I go back and forth about whether or not Sandman could be a good film. The comics are so spectacular that I don't think they could match them, but it could be cool to see a film adaptation. However, I think it would be better as a really well done miniseries, simply because of the episodic nature of the comics. It isn't one big storyline, it's many different storylines in the same world, with some of the same characters.

  5. I don't care what day you do nerd news on- I'm gonna read it while the kids are at school/sleeping the day it comes out as long as I'm not at work no matter what. ")
    I'm excited about the star wars news that I keep seeing. It's nice to see someone treating the series with respect. I'm throwing shade at you George Lucas.
    Those tmnt prints are super cool... except Raph's right arm- WHAT HAPPENED AND WHY IS SO MUCH LONGER THAN HIS LEFT ARM AND OMG THE ANGLE AND I JUST CAN'T!!!!

  8. Oh, good! (re: the spoilery article) I'm going to take your word on it that it's a good thing. :)

  10. Thanks Rebecca. <3


    And THANKS A LOT for pointing out the weirdness of Raph's arm. Now that's all I can see. ;P

  11. Nothing wrong with being cheesy either ;-)

  12. That TMNT art is outstanding. Wow! My Little Dude should probably have prints of that on his wall. I was reading the Gordon-Levitt/Sandman article and I have to say, while I love the idea of more Gaiman on screen, I agree with this: " I'm starting to think that this project could very easily just dissolve in the near future. As, frankly, it should. No disrespect to Levitt, but Sandman simply doesn't feel like a movie to me."

  13. More and more, I'm liking the idea of a Sandman mini-series rather than a movie. I feel like they'll try to cram so much into one 2.5 hour thing, and it won't do it justice at all.
