One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is to dredge through musty longboxes in a quiet comic book store. I find amazing, forgotten stories that can be had for a few bucks, sometimes less (while these days your average new comic book is $3.99 and up)! One of the main reasons I staked … Continue reading Bargain Bin Bounty: Conan the Barbarian Annual # 9
Did you know that the Justice League of America used to do waterskiing shows at Sea World! With (appropriately, for once) Aquaman! And Mera! Enjoy this family video another person's family took at Sea World! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fd44ZNbiVgI Captain Cold was there too! Happy Fourth of July, Wagoners!
Darwyn Cooke, one of comicdom's greats, passed away yesterday. Cooke was best known for his work as an artist and writer for DC Comics, most notably Justice League: The New Frontier. He wrote and drew exuberant, joyful stories that made clear his love for the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, and he will be … Continue reading Farewell to Darwyn Cooke
I don't know about you, but I'm starting to get concerned with the...discrepancies cropping up in the flow of time. Things like the Eugenics Wars not occurring in the early 1990s (in fact, there is no record of Kahn Noonien Singh ever existing!) and the fact that my Chronowerx computer now has the name of some … Continue reading Something is very wrong with Time
NOTE: This post has panels and a minor spoiler from a recently released comic book (All-New, All-Different Avengers issue 6 - 2/24/16) The X-Men (and all related characters) were created at Marvel Comics, meaning they exist in the same world as the Avengers and ally/fight with them in the pages of Marvel's comic books. Even … Continue reading Marvel really doesn’t like that one property they own but don’t have the rights to make movies of
Well, I moved. I was sad to go, there is no place quite like New Jersey. But what I will miss most are the people (not the inhabitants of the state in general...definitely not those people); my parents, my sisters, and my dog, and the great group of friends I've made and known since I … Continue reading Star Swag – Moving Edition

It's a bunch of cool dudes in good moods, jawing about stuff they are passionate about and having a great … Continue reading Check out this sweet Podcast!
Of all the relaunched Marvel Comics titles I've bought that have begun since the....end? (delayed end? is that still going on?) of Marvel Secret Wars, I think some of my favorites are The Vision, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Captain America. Captain America follows the exploits of Sam Wilson as he continues to wield the shield, … Continue reading Cool Current Comics: Captain America
Recently my buddy Tom invited me to what he termed a "warehouse comic book sale" out in Brooklyn. Me: "You mean a bunch of vendors setting up in a warehouse somewhere, like a convention without celebrities or cosplayers?" Tom: "Not quite, it's just one guy." And then he sent me this link. We took the … Continue reading Wandering the Warehouse of Wonders
Wasn't done! Got more swag! I had these when I made my last post but forgot to post 'em (I was wearing one when I wrote it!); Courtney got me a shirt featuring some Outer Rim desert planet I had never heard of and her brother Danny got me a classic Superman tee. Now I … Continue reading The Empire Swags Back
