Quoted from RikeIsland:
This will be my outfit every day until I get my machine.
so... you ordered a halloween BSE?
Quoted from Tres:
Picked up a couple of variant edition comics from my local comic store. I went in not expecting them to have any. Check stores in your area before buying online.
attempted to do this today. found one store that had the B variant cover but they wanted $25 for the issue. found it online for $3.59 so I purchased a few copies to justify the shipping costs
Quoted from Aeolus7:
Okay, getting more into the theme now. I’ve watched a couple of episodes of the original series, now I’m trying to sort through the Matt Frank cover art for Ultraman. It’s Rise of Ultraman #4 and Trials of Ultraman #1, correct?!
the artwork used on the ultraman back glass is the surprise variant for trials of ultraman #4
I believe that arthur adams also penned the original cover for trials of ultraman #4
can someone explain what UKR is an abbreviation for?
I can understand HWN (halloween) and UBS (ultraman blood suckers), and UCE (ultraman collector's edition), but UKR has me baffled
Quoted from UltraPeepi:
I was so sad Ultraman was not in the movie.
yeah, that was a missed mark on a couple of fronts given that the [ultraman] power-up was time based and limited to 3 minutes (in the book).
a quick search reveals why this happened the way that it did
Ernest Cline: “When I went to Japan it was hard to tell the Japanese fans that Ultraman wasn’t going to be in the movie. That was not because anybody withheld the rights from us. The company that owned Ultraman, Tsuburaya, was excited, but they were having a lawsuit with another company over the foreign rights to Ultraman.
“Because of this lawsuit, neither one of them could give us a clear chain of title to the character. Even though they both desperately wanted Ultraman to be part of a Steven Spielberg movie. Just because of the timing it couldn’t happen.”
