Let's have some fun: let's make up superpowers/abilities we'd like to have! Or, if you are really lacking in originality, tell of an ability that already exists in an established medium (books, comics, manga, etc.) that you would love to have and tell us what would be the first thing you'd do with that ability. Also, if you are making an original ability, you have to give it a name!
I'll go first: the power I'd like to have is the ability to create orbs of light of varying colors and of varying intensities. These lights could be made to flash in certain patterns or at certain speeds at different colors for effects such as disorienting others, etc. I call this ability 'The Distractor'.
The ability to enter and gain complete control over the dreams of someone I've had physical contact with.
Anyone desired within visible range (not limited to a single person) will experience the physical sensations of whatever is in contact with my thumb(s). Particularly fun with matches, ice-cubes and stress-balls.
The ability to create a 'magical bubble' of desired size that will slow-down/speed-up time for anything that enters it. The dilation also creates the inverse effect when an object leaves the bubble. For instance, you throw a rock into it at 10m/s, it slows down by a factor of 10 (1m/s) within the bubble but exits with a velocity 10 times greater (100m/s).
Perfect memory, with the ability to edit and erase memories anyway I see fit.
Does anybody know which webcomic this is from? Sorry if you guys disapprove of /req/ threads on this board, I'd just like to know.
In return, have some Men in Hats
Greetings /co/. I'm looking for some comic books about the paranormal and ghosts in particular.
I know about BPRD and Hellblazer, which I'm thinking are the most popular /x/ type comic series, but I'm looking for some more spooky comics.
Locke and Key deals with Lovecraftian horror, you may enjoy it thoroughly. Hell, it even takes place in a town called Lovecraft. It's still ongoing, too.
On the subject of Lovecraft, there's a comic called The Strange Adventures of HP Lovecraft, which I don't think got a second volume even though they left it wide open for one.
As for my last suggestion, I recommend Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth. The art is fantastic, the story is fantastic, everything about it is simply great.

Anyone here ever heard of Wakfu?
To those who don't know, Wakfu is a French anime-esque cartoon which takes place in a rich fantasy world. Its first season concerns a boy, supposedly the last of his kind, and his connection to the dragons. The dragons have been missing since the dawn of time, and many consider them to be mere legend. In his travels he meets Ruel (a spry and greedy old man), Amalia (an uptight princess), Sadlygrove (an idiot), and Evangelyne (an elf). Together they must defeat the time mage known as Nox.
While most of the first half of the first season is filler which has no bearing on the plot in any way whatsoever, the second half is where it really kicks off. Contrary to those of you who hold a bias against generic fantasy stories, I assure you that it does get better. Their travels actually lead them through a series of defeats at the hands of Nox. Honestly, I believe that Nox is easily one of my favorite villains of all time, he's not just your run of the mill antagonist.
If you haven't seen this show, give it a shot. There's a series of comics and what-not, and almost all of them are good. You can download here.
I do love this series. You probably should have mentioned that it's a video game first though, and sequel to the already great doofus.
Yeah, that probably would have been good. But I'm pretty sure that the Wakfu game came out after the show.
I haven't read the Dofus comics yet because they haven't been translated at this time. Whether or not they will get translated is still up in the air.
First comic book you ever read.
Sometimes I just can't stand to look at the flashy art in comics these days. I have trouble connecting to characters if there is an explosion in every third frame. Am I in the minority?
I like both types of comics, depends on my mood.
Am I the only on eon the planet that thinks both Adventure Time and Regular Show are fucking garbage? It seems that fucking everyone, from elementary schoolers to grown fucking men at my job, love the hell out of this show. Why, /co/? Why?
Pic very related.
ITT: Cartoon Hipsters.
So obviously you've only seen a couple episodes between seasons 1 and 2. Adventure Time is amazingly deep the world of ooo is a post apolcalyptic earth where Finn The Human is the last human, and many consider his constant adventures a distraction from the realization that he's the last of his kind in the world, not to mention his struggle as he ages with no other humans to guide him through his hardships even though Jake tries his best. Are there cheesy jokes and non plot driving episodes, yes. But there is meat in the plot and I await it every week. Regular show is just "bro" humor and I love it for it's simplicity.
>throw random gibberish events or characters that don't make sense or have anything to do with each other at the episode until it's long enough, and then try to force them to fit into one world
You could not be more wrong, most of the time the episodes feel rushed and have abrupt endings, but this is not the writer's faults--it's because the executives at Cartoon Network are dicks and force Pen and his staff to only do 11 minute episodes with like one 2-parter every season. There is an incredible amount of depth to the show, especially in seasons 3 and 4.
So im at a yard sale today and i find all five part to BloodTies, all in mint condition, and all sign by at least 1 artist each
Issue 1: Tom Palmer - Inker/Colorist
Issue 2: Andy Kubert and Matt Ryan - Penciler and Inker
Issue 3: Dave Ross - Penciler
Issue 4: Dan Green - Inker
Issue 5" Tom Palmer - Inker
Im sure theyre not worth anything too crazy, but any Idea how much they could go for?
I payed $10
Not much, really the only thing you're going to get money for are golden age and silver age major arcs. If you bought them to resell rather than collect the highest you can get is probably to break even, I only really recognized Andy Kubert because he did flash point i'd have to look up the others.
Let's watch Superman vs the Elite!
I'll start the movie in 5 minutes so people won't miss the beginning.
There is an Adventure Time streaming marathon going on all night for those interested. Come watch and comment. Or lurk.
Synchtube room streaming decent cartoons, Regular show, Beavis and Butthead, Superjail and a few more.
