There are none where I live.

I could have bought a copy of the Cassaday variant for £10, but even I'm not that dumb. I'm waiting for the 2nd print now.

There is a 30% chance of Deathbag flurries today. And a Deathbag Storm Advisory for over the weekend.

Has GHERU selected the follow up to the rip roaring good time that was Robocop yet?

I read this, it was a little annoying how they kept working the title into the dialogue. "Are you for hire, hero?" Maybe it was just a few times, but damn that would get old fast.

No, he's too busy reading the Darkwing Duck trade I sent him yesterday.

You should have held the duck book hostage until he made his pick.

When I read that line I though "Hey that would be a great tag line for a tv show".

Which made me thing that a Heroes 4 Hire cartoon would be a great showcase for a lot of these charactes which probably wouldn't have a strong enough fanbase to support their own show.

I think that line is a hold over from the original series. The whole thing has a 70's TV show vibe to it, which isn't a bad thing.

Yeah, but where's the beef? You can kiss my grits.

(Eh, I think there's a reason TV shows and sit-coms have moved away from the "catchphrase era". :lol: )

Touche. :P

Another thing I've enjoyed are the done in one missions. Satanic weapon deals, Savage Land slave trade? They're neat little ideas that tie in play up on the idea of crime in the Marvel Universe.
