If you don’t want to run away…

The only person who should try to pull this off would be Jairo, the Brazilian Capoeira teacher from Bob’s Burgers. Even then I think the bear is too formidable for his trademark pony tail whip attack. If you still believe you … Continue reading

RIP Alan Grant

Sad to read the news about this comic book writer passing who oddly had the same name as Sam Neill’s character in Jurassic Park. He was part of DC Comics’ influx of UK-based writers and artists who made comics and superheroes … Continue reading

Yet another sad passing I found out later, thanks a lot New York Times! But, better late than never. The legendary comic-book artist Neal Adams died last Saturday at age 80 and for us nerds, he was a big deal. Back … Continue reading

Black Widow: Worth Seeing (MCU Recap 2)

I wanted to see this movie not to just be an MCU completist (I’ve only missed one MCU movie in a theater) but as a show of support to Scarlett. The actress was a trooper in a male-dominated genre and … Continue reading

MCU Recap 1: Loki and Modok

We’re about six weeks away from Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and I sat on my ass, failing to blather on about the latest MCU crap and whatever else came out in the meantime. Sure there’s spoilers by now … Continue reading

Al Jaffe of MAD Magazine is 101!

Comedian Dan Telfer made the best joke, Al’s birthday is now the perfect fold-in! For Gen Z and some Mills, back when MAD was around, the back, inside cover was an art-based joke by Al. It would ask a question and … Continue reading

Danny DeVito is closer to the real character’s height

OK, I was wrong, according to imdb.com, Danny is 4′ 10″ (1.47 m) and what I remember from the Marvel Universe comics, Wolverine (aka Logan) is 5′ 2″ (1.58 m) but let’s face it, movies prefer the illusion of height: many … Continue reading
