Marvel's Cloak & Dagger

Post by tony ingram on Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:36 pm

Just seen the first two episodes of this over the last couple of days. It's taking its time getting going, but is quite intriguing, I think. Though the characters seem to be kind of reversals of their original comics incarnations, Tandy Bowen now being basically a rich girl gone bad and Tyrone Johnson not half as much of a nerd and from a rather more stable background than I seem to remember Bill Mantlo's version being. On the whole, I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops...

Not having seen this, I thought you were going to say they gave her the darkness/Cloak powers and he would have had the light/Dagger powers.

I just bought it on Amazon (the price went up $3 for the season since yesterday!) and I'm looking forward to it.
Now to find the time...

Is that a streaming thing (ugh) or is it available on DVD?

Still can't really get to grips with the notion. I leave all that to Lucy.

I can see the advantages, but having that obsessive collector mentality, if I like something I want a physical product. I could never buy digital comics.

I get that, in that I want to OWN what I own, and with electronic products you don't. But, I have NO ROOM for more, and (if I'm honest) ebooks and such tend to be cheaper (though not always) and so I can get more of them with my money.

There's always a way. In the corner of our living room is atable, under a white cloth, with a rather nice display stand on it. Except it's not a table; under the cloth are six boxes of comics, heavily disguised. I haven't yet replaced the base of the bed with comic boxes, but hey, it's always a possibility... Very Happy

Crushed to death by a bookshelf full of DVDs? It'd be an end worthy of a true fan Laughing

I'd prefer to have lovely ladies feeding me cinnamon rolls or homemade chocolate chip cookies, but . . .

I want to die peacefully in my sleep on the day I retire, because I can't afford a decent pension.
