achates-the-brave asked: But... Digital copies also cost $3.99... How can they justify raising the price on digital copies when they have no paper to print on?
They can’t, really. The reason they do it is to try to keep comic book stores happy, since there’s a fear that digital will make comic stores completely obsolete and lose business.
In reality, for me, happy as I am at the increase in digital, I prefer having an actual comic in my hands.
adrianianam asked: The problem is, automation is quickly poised to take over the majority of service jobs as well, leaving only skilled service jobs left. The service sector won't have enough openings to support the population as a whole.
I don’t think we have automated waiters/waitresses, cleaners, gardeners, accountants, cooks, writers, plumbers, architects, reviewers, entertainers, programmers, teachers, and etc.
Hell, even large-scale construction is still outside the realm of robots and automation. And there’s still something to be said for hand-made craftsmen, anyway. Even today we get products that boast hand-painted as a selling-point as well as people preferring a human touch to the creation of an object rather than mass-produced.
I’m not saying it’s going to be easy nor am I saying it’s going to end well for everyone. I’m saying it’s going to CHANGE.
clothinthesand asked: In an earlier HOPR, you mentioned that you watch the following season before reviewing the current season. Was that stopped in lieu of time?
luck-ethan-charms asked: So i recently rewatched your Secret Defenders review and in it you said you'd get into Thunderstrike's deal in another video but i don't think you ever did. (and this is coming from someone who marathoned every single episode last year though i still could be wrong, i just wanted to brag about that) anyway what did you want to say about him?
I always figured I’d redo the text review of Thunderstrike #1. Never did. XD
tardisman14 asked: In your video, I recall hearing that there were still two seasons of Power Rangers that you still had not seem yet. Were you referring to Jungle Fury and RPM or Samurai and Megaforce?
Jungle Fury and RPM. I’ve seen all of Samurai (except for Clash of the Red Rangers) and everything that’s out for MegaForce.
szaeth asked: Any thoughts you'd be willing to share on the work of artist like Carmin Di Giandomenico (All-New X-Factor), Ryan Stegman(Inhuman #4/Wolverine 2014) and Humberto Ramos (Alpha: Big Time/Amazing Spider-man 2014)?
Unfortunately, I’m only familiar with Humberto ramos’ work and I am not a fan. I think his artwork would work much better in general cartoons or animated series with a distinctive artistic style, but for sequential art? Blegh. But that’s just my own personal preferences speaking.
selfishmisery asked: Linkara, did you hear the rumor announcing Warner Brother's "No Jokes" policy behind their live-action DC films?
I have. If it’s true, it’s eye-roll-worthy in how completely out of touch they are if they think a lack of humor will make people want to go see the film.
It is, yet again, an example of the awkward adolescent jumping up and down and screaming how they’re so mature and adult and to take them seriously when all they’re doing is acting childish.
