Floppy Copy – Mind MGMT

What up, and TGIF Mother Fuckers? The weeks go by so fast, and I be missing my babies, and

remember childrenz a Floppy a day keeps SnowFlame at bay! “Cocaine’s a hell of a drug!”
SnowFlame the Cocaine Snorting Super bad Created by non-other than Steve Englehart himself, you know the creator of such Memorable Characters as Kilowog or Star-Lord, ahh if at first you don’t succeed. Dude literally sold the concept of Cocaine making you cooler and stronger to young children… In the late 80’s… Da Fug?
Honestly thought this is the Justice League movie I’m dying to see! Wonder Woman all Cracked out on the corner, Flash shacking so bad he’s passing through walls and shit. Batman with his

pimp hand strong you know lighten up that DC Drudgery a bit. This Week on Floppy Copy I wanted to jump back into one of my all time favorite series Mind MGMT, Writer, artist, and creator Matt Kindt really blew me away with this title in 2013 and as I give it another read here, its not hard to remember why. Volume 1 contains issues 0-6 and in Hard Copy you can pick this book up for around twenty bucks or less on eBay. Or from your local Comic Book store… Jon has one of those. (Hall of Justice Comics and Collectibles.) You may want to call first though not sure he keeps Mind MGMT in stock.
If you enjoy True Crime, Corrupt Government Organizations, Mental Powers, and Secret Agent like shit then this book may just be right up your alley, Follow main Character Meru, as she struggles to unravel the truth in her search for the missing passenger of Amnesia Flight 815. A True Crime writer by profession Meru down on her luck and 2 years removed from her last best seller unravels a world of Spies, Secret Government Organizations and a former top agent Lyme as she finds what she’s looking for a-la Matrix 2 like curve ball to wrap up the arc.
“Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness.”
Mind MGMT issues 0-6 is written in such a way that if you want to dive deeper into the world you most certainly can but if you just want a quick read and new universe to explore Volume 1 will serve you just fine in that capacity as well.
So do me a favor, just read this book! and then let me know what you think. The art does throw some people, but personally i love that rough water color look, but Don’t take my word for it, 4 out of 5  MARTHAS couldn’t agree more!

Floppy Copy – The Phoenix Resurrection


 
Phoenix Ressurection 1-5
This week on Floppy Copy, Old Man Logan, more like Owned Man Logan, Creepy Bio-Dome of the Dead your coffee is terrible, and oops Jean’s done it again, she’s back from the dead, and Marvel casually kills Cyclops with Mutant Super Aids… Again… WTF! ( Scott seemed suprisngly unimpressed. see below )  ( Cant this dude die in battle or something already, get with it Marvel he’s put in the time show that brother some love! )

Alright I sorta went into crazed state of mind there trying to rhyme the story to year 2000 smash hit “Oops!… I did it again,” by Brittany Spears. “Why?” you ask… And to you I may respond “Why not?”

Phoenix Resurrection came with more than your usual new storyline/arc hype. Jeans back bitch, and she’s here to chew bubble gum and kick ass and for a couple of years now Marvels been all out of bubble gum. The return of Phoenix this time feels right and needed, No Phoenix Five here ladies and gentlemen, Hope Summers who?
 
 
 
 
 

 
The real Mutant Messiah is back and her shoes really could not have been filled by any other X-Man than Jean Grey herself. Arguably the most beloved X-Man of all time is back from the dead with the Phoenix Force being responsible for her resurrection. This latest Marvel Legacy Event was a return to soul for the X-Men and dare I say it maybe just maybe Phoenix will rekindle the fire of arguably the greatest super hero team Marvel has ever produced. Oh Baby oh.
Final Thought: Honestly this mini series surprised me, it was overly long, 3 issues woulda done this run just fine. The rotating cast of artists left a little to be desired for me as visually the series struggles to find its look over the 5 issue series., That being said the book looked very good for the most part and Khoi Pham really closes out the series on a strong note. Matthew Rosenberg impressed me here as well. This story just feels fun to read. It feels like an X-Men story of old anchored with a lot of good that the current stuff as well. II have zero serious problems here and personally I’m very much looking forward to X-Men Red as we continue to explore the stories a newly resurrected Jean Grey opens up in the Marvel Universe. Please if you have read the the books Id love to hear your thoughts and maybe interact a bit , have a little back and forth if you will on the subject at hand. Strong 4 outa 5 Marthas here from me!
 
 

Floppy Copy – Swamp Thing Winter Special Review


This weeks comic book review is more so an introduction to how I will be reviewing comics in the future than a review of said comics in the present; I would review comics in the past, but I am unsure on how to accomplish this. Regressive hypnotic therapy to uncover how I felt about a comic the moment I actually read it? A future option perhaps but I digress, so if you the reader gets what I’m laying down here, that’s right I set it on down, now its on you to pick it on up, that’s right pick it on up. Follow along with me as its time to dive head first into the method, whilst skulking behind the madness of “This Week on Floppy Copy”
Now don’t let the name full you this weekly review is about what I am reading, when I am reading it and how I wish to slang it, this is my comic book review dick, and I will slang it with impunity. One week you might get a little new shit POW right in the kisser, something from the Golden Age perhaps? BLAM, center lane uppercut to the taint! That’s right, FREEDOM! Now what this doesn’t mean is that I am un-receptive to your wishes or requests. This Week on Floppy Copy review show and variety hour is kinda like Airport Security, if you see something say something Mother Fucker! Your interests on upcoming titles as well as back issues you want the story on but lets face it, your probably to lazy or busy to give them a read on your own, and yeah I might got the time for that. Who knows I might not, But you can ask or comment and I for one hope that you will.
This shit should come out every Friday and I am committed to that deadline, also in the future ( JUAN ) I will get this to you not on Friday as I am doing right now. Like maybe Wednesday, but you guys wont read it till Friday. Thatss right, your getting a behind the scene look at the making of This Week on Floppy Copy! It’s really not that exciting, I’m in my boxers drinking Cherry Coke with my Macbook Air in front one of those fake ass Amish Fireplaces. its fucking sexy in here.
I didn’t want leave your without any kind of Comic book review here so daddy got a little something for ya. Takes care of my babies and you know this!
Swamp Thing Winter Special #1
“Tom King and Jason Fabok pay tribute to the legendary creators of Swamp Thing, writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, as they join forces for an earth-shattering Swamp Thing passion project!”
I know some online reviews walk you page by page through the story but I will never do that,it just kinda feels pretentious to me, like here dummy its the page, and this is what you should think about that page. Also I assume that one day, if you haven’t already you may wish to turn these pages for yourself. That being said there really isn’t a lot to review about this book in my opinion, Swamp Thing Winter Special #1 is just good, the writing, the art, the pacing of the story, and emotion on the page, this is vintage Swamp Thing. If you’re a friend of the Green, (Yeah this could have multiple meanings ) this is probably a must read and dare I say it the best Swamp Thing book in quite some time now. The self contained story has two very minor flaws in my opinion so minor in fact that I wont even mention them. This book is so easy to spoil, and if you pay close attention as you read the twist at the end wont even leave you that surprised. Which is  something I normally disdain about movies and comics but here its totally fine. Swamp Thing Winter Special #1 is gimmick free writing and beautiful illustration. Just read it and tell me what you think I doubt you’ll regret it.

Doyle Reviews DC's "Damage"

Ethan Elvis” Avery just wanted to serve his country. Instead, he’s been changed into a monster! Tasked as the government’s own living, breathing, ticking time bomb, Ethan retains no control when the monster takes over. Cheaper than a nuclear warhead and twice as effective, Ethan fights to rein in the damage he unleashes when the beast inside him springs free for one hour a day. With everyone around him in danger, Ethan struggles to contain the DAMAGE he inflicts on the DC Universe. 

“DAMAGE” Ethan “Elvis” Avery I think they are trying to give him kind of a Rockstar personality with that name, but we see zero of that personality here, in fact we don’t see anything that would make us like the main character/any character in this opening issue.
Ethan Hulks out. I mean “DAMAGES” out from the get go. Does some “DAMAGE” I guess. We do get a sense of his power here but the artist doesn’t give us a single wide shot to take in the destructive force that is “DAMAGE!” Every panel is close cropped and although, yeah, he is blowing stuff up and punching things it’s all rather contained. Also, he seems to be at least somewhat in control. What the f*ck DC! The only thing you got right was the hour a day thing. The comic starts out by counting down on every page and then gives that up randomly. Also, Ethan doesn’t seem to want this power that he has been given. He doesn’t want to be their monster, however later in the comic you get the idea that he kind of signed up for this?
Honestly… It was a pretty bad first issue, it had some okay roots, and I truly hope it grows into a good young DC title with lots of smart action packed “DAMAGE” for the readers. But this first issue really missed the mark and I had/have high hopes for “DAMAGE.” When I first read the elevator pitch above, beyond that I was pretty sold on the idea of Hulk on a chess board. Chess though, has rules, Hulk has no rules! I was stoked you get this overpowered mindless ball of destruction and it’s up to the writers (ARMY) to best decide how and when to use him. You know, without the whole thing blowing up in their faces. This kind of governor they put on the Hulk makes the character more interesting to me, well at least makes the idea of the character more interesting.
This book seems like a rush job, no real story, no real continuity with even DC’s Pitch for what the Comic was supposed to be about, and oh yea -SPOILER ALERT- Just toss in the Suicide Squad at the end, that should get em’ chomping at the bit for more. Well bravo to you DC it kind of did, it was the only thing in fact that makes me want to read the next issue. Hoping for more story and sweet sweet action-packed panels as the Squad goes looking for… wait for it… “DAMAGE! It’s hard to recommend this title beyond what I hope it will become, it somehow spins out of METAL although I have no idea how that ties in. I give “DAMAGE” 1 and 1/2 Marthas out of 5, Suicide Squad ending really the only thing bring me back for
issue 2 here.

Our pick for this recording’s #popcultureclassic is the 1987, Richard Donner movie, Lethal Weapon. This Mel Gibson, and Danny Glover movie, is a good refresher on buddy cop movies!!
