The point of this Forum Section

Some members are a little iffy on what should go in the Games & Humor forum section so.

Trivial games like "the person above you game" should be placed in this forum.

Humor of all kinds also belongs here, like the "Superman has a problem with kinky sex" thread.

What does not belong here would be things like video games, board games. Or humor coming directly out of comic books or discussion of books.

Boardgames and the like would go in the Action Figure and Toys section as could video games, though those could also be posted in the General Forum Section.

also any posts in this Forum Section do not count towards your post count.

Hope that helps!

  • Pfft I'm not gonna use Geoff Johns, my idea needs a different type of writer

      When the Anti-Draft or the Idris Elba draft ends, I suggest a Draft An Ongoing Comic Book where you pick a setting, characters, a writer and an artist.
      For example, I would draft a Superman ongoing written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Cliff Chiang, if I wanted too
      Didn't we just do that though? Iggy's Captain America by Ennis and Cooke won.


      • Oh yeah, I thought that was a limited series thing until just now lol

        Anyways, Ill run a draft if people post ideas we can vote on


        • We could change that into a whole DCU or Marvel Now draft.
          Seven ongoings, you can only pitch characters that the respective publisher has the rights to (or that are Public Domain), and you need a writer and artist each.

          For example:


          1. Avengers by Mark Waid and Gary Frank
          2. X-Men by Matt Fraction and Adrian Alphona
          3. Spider-Man by Kieron Gillen and Pete Woods
          4. Hulk by Warren Ellis and David Finch
          5. Fantastic Four by Mark Schultz and Ladronn
          6. Iron Man by Greg Rucka and JG Jones
          7. She-Hulk by Brad Meltzer and Gary Frank

          And then we can argue how good or bad those books would be, how writer x woukd never work for Marvel, or how artist b would never manage 12 issues a year. We could have the extra rule that we can't pick creators that have worked on a book before (so no Brian Bendis on Daredevil, or John Byrne on Fantastic Four).


          • So would be drafting the creators or the series? What would be restricted? Can everyone draft a Daredevil book by Joe Q or once a creative team is taken they can't be chosen at all? Or just not chosen together?


            • I propose that you only get ONE chance to let a series go bimonthly. We could pick JHW3 on any book and it'll look amazing but for how long? If we fill up our seven books with slow artists then our entire line would be delayed. So you only have the opportunity to have one of your series published bimonthly like Hawkeye or Sandman.

              Additionally, you have TWO chances to have a two person rotation for an art team.


              • Sounds good. And I'd say everyone can draft a Daredevil series, but once a writer or artist has been picked, he's off limits. A writer/artist like Dan Jurgens, Jeff Lemire or John Byrne can be picked twice, however. Once as a writer, once as an artist.


                • Hmm, but what if I want one of those writing and drawing the same series?


                  • I'll definitely lose but I'll be up for that

                      I don't see the problem. They are eligible as writers and artists, so if nobody snatches them away from you, go ahead and put them on double duty.


                      • So who's in for the 7 ongoing comic books draft?


                        • I'm in, but what are we drafting exactly. Are we doing everything at once or selectively?


                          With the first pick, W.West selects "Justice League" by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
                          With the second pick, Michael Heide selects "Justice League Dark" by Jeff Lemire and Mikel Janin


                          With the first pick in the first round, W.West selects "Justice League"
                          With the first pick in the second round, W.West selects Geoff Johns.


                          • I think Ex 1 would be better, but you dont have to reveal what your books are until drafting is done


                            • Yeah, I agree. You pick a writer and an artist. And then you reveal all books at once.

                              I'd say we do DC first. And each of us can choose his own corner of DC or go all over the place. West could do
                              1. The Flash starring Barry Allen
                              2. Kid Flash starring Wally West
                              3. Earth 2 Flash starring Jay Garrick
                              4. Impulse starring Bart Allen
                              5. The Rogues
                              6. Flash Beyond starring John Fox
                              7. Speed Force starring all at once

                              Someone could do seven Batbooks, or one book for each Lantern Corps, or one for each member of the Justice League. Or seven books not yet published by the New 52.
