"I ate cookie dough ALL night!" - Omi, dragon of the water

 I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who read my review of Amazing Spider-Man#638. That review has become my most viewed post BY FAR, totaling 204 views and counting. I haven’t done any new posts since then because I didn’t want to drown it in other posts. I poured my heart and soul into that review and I’m so glad I wrote it. Seriously, thank you to everyone who is checking out my blog and be sure to tell your friends about it!

Now here’s what I’ve been doing lately:

  • I saw Inception last Friday. Very, very good movie. All the actors were great and your mind is on full throttle trying to process what’s going on (or at least mine was). I recommend it to anyone with an open mind.
  • I am re-visiting my childhood and re-watching my favorite cartoons as a kid. Just to mention a few: Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, Xiaolin Showdown (picture shown above is from this show), and Jackie Chan Adventures. There are many others that I’d like to mention, but these are the ones I’ve been watching recently. Speaking of re-visiting childhood I’ve also been playing Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. Such a great video game that is so worthy of being a classic if it’s not already.
  • Yesterday I bought volumes 2 and 3 of the manga series Vagabond. The artwork is GORGEOUS. The art drew me in and soon afterward the story pulled me in as well. I also found a beat-up copy of Trigun volume 1 for .50 cents(!). I’m about 30 pages in and so far it’s pretty funny. It’s about a gunman who’s a pacifist. Good stuff.
  • I’ve also been buying random back issues of comic books left and right, some of which I’ll be doing back issue reviews of. I also got a volume of James Robinson’s Starman for a buck! You can’t go wrong with that.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for a few back issue reviews and a new kind of post featuring… well, just wait and see 🙂

Thanks for reading and I look forward to your comments!

What REALLY happened in between R.I.P. and Final Crisis!

Surprise, surprise I have a new kind of post where I ramble about things that I’ve been watching, things I’ve bought recently, etc. A majority, if not all, of the things I talk about on this post will be geek-related subjects. Without further ado, let’s begin:

  • Maus I by Art Spiegelman. I have not read much of this yet because I want to find a time where I can just sit down and read a good chunk of it. I’ve heard nothing but praise for this book, so I’m expecting a good read. My dad pretty much read both Maus I and Maus II in one sitting, each.
  • On Monday (I think) I found a whole bunch of old Superman comics from the early 70s for .25 cents each. There not at all in “mint condition”, but they’re in readible condition and I don’t care if something is in “perfect” condition. Anything in good/fair condition is fine with me, but if it is beat-up beyond recognition or has pages falling out, or if it’s all mangled, etc. that’s when I avoid buying it. The issues I found are #265, 270, 278, 282, 296, and 298. I haven’t read them yet, but if the covers are any indication it’s going to be fun.
  • I’m also watching the Adam West and Burt Ward Batman TV Show on Youtube. If only more shows were as innocent and fun as this one! I also like Batman’s dance too! Great, great show! Their utility belts have something for everything too.

That’s all for now. Leave a comment about… well, anything relevent I guess… Thanks for reading!
