    Re Deadpoolmax (why is that all one word?): I’m reminded of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Apparently the original script was full of profanity, but they were told (or suggested, or they decided) to take it out. The movie was better for it. In this case, of course, rather than just censoring the profanity they replaced it with much more creative dialog (“you cheesy lot of second hand electric donkey bottom biters!”), so it’s not really the same thing. Well, let us know how it is.

    As for Tron Betrayal, something about this movie makes me want to see it “blind”, without any information about what’s happened between the first movie and now. It looks like it’s set up as a bit of a mystery, at least at first, and knowing what’s going on seems like it’d mess with the reveals. That said, anyone planning to review this comic?

    Arcana’s newsletter this week announced that they have acquired some graphic novel titles from Devil’s Due Publishing. This list, verbatim from the newsletter, lists these. Several of the premises may sound familiar:

    Kore: A blundering college slacker releases evil from an ancient tomb.
    Warstone: Only a long lost half-elf, half-human can stop a dark scorcerer from ruling the Earth.
    Mercy Sparx: A devil girl is contracted by Heaven to hunt down rogue angels.
    Misplaced: A powerful outcast from Utopia finds her new life on Earth.
    Defex: Five student scientists discover hidden powers in human DNA.
    Breakdown: A superhero becomes a deadly vigilante after the murder of his family.
    Blade of Kumori: is the lone daughter of an old samurai but the family has changed their purpose to for-profit security and assassination.

      Well, to be Frank, “Breakdown’s plot of a guy becoming a deadly vigilante after his family is murdered (a man’s home is his Castle, after all) sounds kinda familiar, and “Defex,” -Man, I can think of a comic book series that sounds like that.
