Sad Links

Breaking: All the Marvel Now (2106) leaks and no more X-men? A few years ago Marvel discovered they could sell more comics by constantly shuffling their line-up and rebooting everything once every two years. Personally I don't see it as a very sound long term strategy but I understand why they do it. Are you more likely to pick up issue #248 of Iron Man off the shelf or #1 of The Invincible Iron Man, or International Iron Man or whatever it is they're calling the main Iron Man book these days.

I think what's really taken people off guard here is that Marvel had its solicitations for October leaked and there's zero X-Men titles on it. Mutants haven't gone away completely (Deadpool still gets two books) but there's nothing here with X-Men on the cover. Considering how popular the X-Men were when I grew up that seems amazing. I don't get what Disney and Marvel are really trying to accomplish here? Do they think Fox is quaking in their boots because Marvel won't publish an X-Men book? Fox barely even knows comics exist. All the execs at Fox probably think that they publish the X-Men book because they own the movie rights. This is the weakest strong arm technique I've ever seen.

A Cosplayer Is Running For Political Office. This is kind of interesting I guess. Cara Nicole Trujillo, a cosplayer from Arizona, is officially running for the Arizona Legislature as a Green Party candidate. Personally I have zero problem voting for a cosplayer but even though she's running as a Green Party candidate she says she's "pro limited government". I think I'm old enough that I understand what that means. Tax cuts for the rich, like Tony Stark.

A Gallery of Retro Video Game Ads. Well there's an ad you couldn't get away with these days. Some of the ads in this gallery are really something. I guess back in the 90s and early 2000's, it was too much to expect for video game companies to hire actual qualified advertising agencies to give them a hand.

Canadians Are Creating Their Own ‘Sad Pokemon Go’ Since They’ve Been Left Out Of The Fun.Since Pokemon Go isn't available on Windows Phone I'm going to do the same thing. I'm just going to wander around outside with a stuffed Jigglypuff, throwing tennis balls at things.
