Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

First results are in and added to the Batman post! (Technically not until tomorrow, but I think everyone's done voting)
Quote:
C3G’s Comics Recommendations

Best Introduction
Batman: The Long Halloween AND Batman: Year One

Iconic/Must Reads
2 Votes
- Batman: Knightfall

1 Vote
- Batman (Vol. 1) #147
- Batman: Dark Victory
- Batman: Legacy (& Batman: Contagion, since Bats admitted that he cheats :P)
- Batman: No Man’s Land
- Batman: The Court of Owls
- Batman: The Cult
- Batman: The Killing Joke
- Batman: The War of Jokes and Riddles
- Batman: Venom (Legends of the Dark Knight)
- Batman R.I.P.

~ Batman: Gotham By Gaslight
~ Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
We actually have a tie, there were two votes each for both as best intro and two votes each for in general.
I went ahead and counted intro votes that didn't make it towards the Iconic Reads, I'll do that moving forward as I don't want anyone to feel like they're wasting a vote.
Also, let me know if I missed or misinterpreted anyone recommendations; comics can be a confounding thing.

I'll probably add a reading chronology as well in case anyone wants to tackle a whole character's recs

Stay tuned tomorrow evening for the first faction/team vote!

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

C3G’s Comics Recommendations

Best Introduction:
I haven't actually read any, however I'm curious if anyone else has. The appeal is obvious, who wouldn't wanna see a mashup of their favorite characters/inter-company rivals?

Iconic/Must Reads:
I myself haven't read any, but back in the days of just reading character bios I did absorb a bit of the cool combos that they came up with, well some I agreed with and some I didn't, but it was a cool concept.
What I found more interesting, like many young fans, was who would win in a fight (although that hasn't changed much XD). One of the earlier books I read was, again in a library, was called Crossover Classics: The Marvel/DC Collection (I had to look it up of course). Before Amalgam really, but it collected the earliest crossovers between Marvel and DC. There was a Superman/Spider-Man one, a Hulk/Batman one, and an X-Men/Teen Titans one.
I'm pretty sure my favorite was the Supes/Spidey one because Spider-Man was very Spider-Man in that one. The Hulk/Batman one I remember was weird cause they chose Shaper of Worlds as the Hulk villain. I honestly don't recall anything from the last one except that they were in space.

Thematic Favorites

Best Design of the Bunch:
The Web-Pistol is a fun glyph, but gonna go Super Soldier. A better mashup choice and a fun card to play with or against.

Future Design Ideas:
Hyena would be cool to play as.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

Best Intro
The whole thing is really set up by the DC vs. Marvel miniseries event. It's a bit gimmicky, but it's a fun read and gives context for the whole Amalgam thing, so I have to recommend it.

Must Reads
Honestly the only one I've actually read is the last issue of the DC vs. Marvel miniseries, where they started getting into the Amalgam stuff. But my favorite character from it is Bruce Wayne, Agent of SHIELD, just because I think it's funny.

Best Design of the Bunch: I'll go Spider-Boy. I like Super Soldier, but he's almost too good and casts a bit of a shadow over the soldier faction sometimes. Really neat design, though.

Future Design Ideas: Gotta get a Dark Klaw.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

Cool, I'm beginning to think I'll have to read those soon.

I'll just go ahead and mention anyone can vote for any sort of stuff you've read where Marvel and DC have come together here, since they used a crossover to start Amalgam.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

I haven't read much Amalgam (the only issue I have is Magento leading the Metal Men, which is a cool concept but that's about it). I think the characters are really cool though.

Super Soldier is my favorite design. I agree that it'd be great to see a Dark Claw.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

Best Intro : Never read it! Honorable mention to the Death Battle youtube series I guess? Sometimes DC/Marvel characters get matched up on there.

Must Reads : N/A

Best Design of the Bunch: Super Soldier. Really dig what he brings to the Soldiers.

Future Design Ideas: Amazon and Dark Claw top my list. Honorable mention to Captain Marvel, because mixing Captain Marvel and Captain Marvel to make Captain Marvel is hilarious.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

When I was a kid I remember having issue #2 and #4 of Marvel vs DC. I remember always being super annoyed about the missing issues because at the back of each issue they would say who won which fights and I always felt like I was missing great stuff.

Re: C3G Comics Guide and Theme Review

Yeah, issue #3 is worth tracking down.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.
