I ran across this weeks-old article from Cinemanblend, and it got me re-writing the film… again. I quietly yearn for a day when I get over it & just enjoy the movie. Until then: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/C-3PO-Red-Arm-Force-Awakens-Explained-102337.html?utm_source=zergnet.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=zergnet_829106 “Due to the 30 year time jump in The Force Awakens, it makes sense that C-3PO is presumably an outdated […]

The Marvel universe will NEVER BE THE SAME because I give up…

Here we go again. More change for the sake of change. I guess we have to talk about something on Wednesdays.   Tweet

Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

They Actually “Get” Comic Books!

Well, at least one of them did (and the other was a great sport). I was invited, and happily accepted, to be on our British sister-podcast Nerdology last weekend, and had a great ol’ time talking about comic books in general, and Marvel comics in particular with Simon Brett and Mark Cockram.

New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ poster proves the Tower is inhabited by geniuses.

Let’s forget that the poster is another example of somebody Photoshopping a bunch of individual photos together for poor results. See what’s going on there? Something UNSUSUAL about the layout? Yes, Wolverine, X-Men’s literal poster boy is front & center and largest in the group, but in a solid second place is a LADY! Mystique […]

Podcast: Frozen Dead Guy

Holy Fraggaroley! Calamity!

Some bastich over at DC thought it would be cute if they started messin’ with the MAIN MAN from their own funnybooks.  While still reeling from the bizzaro-casting of Ben Affleck as … Batman, a smaller but still bug-nuts crazy reveal popped up on the electric internets today. DC is re-introducing fan favorite character Lobo […]

Hasbro Reaches Out to the Greater Geek Community

Gizmodo was granted access to Hasbro’s offices and has posted an interview giving the basics of the design process, focusing on the (new in stores, kids!) Predaking toy. Hasbro has slowly been coming to terms with the fact they need to focus on growing the fanbase beyond just 6-11-year-olds. Sadly, this access should also be […]
