Welcome to November 2021!

Originally I was going to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Call of Cthulhu debuting as a roleplaying game but it wouldn’t be sincere. I’ve only played the game a few times and I am trying to get more familiar with it because … Continue reading

“Realistic” superheroes from different angles

Sorry, I’m really running behind on what’s current or contemporary TV or movies. It was a crazy Summer…no wait, I’m only partially sorry because I planned on spending much more time on my house. Then in the near future, it … 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

MCU TV is off to a solid start with these two

Both of these original mini-series via Disney+ did a pretty great job scratching my MCU itch during the Pandemic since Black Widow and other movies were pushed back until it was safe to sit in a theater. I also think the … Continue reading

Justice League: the Snyder do-over

Allegedly, this Snyder Cut happened via HBO Max through the fans. Who these people are, I have yet to meet one. I do readily admit to enjoying Snyder’s 300 and he did the best job possible with The Watchmen, a story that … Continue reading

So far the Snyder Cut is rather weird

Jennifer split for Padre to have a long weekend with her mom, daughter and friend so I decided to use the time to finally watch the long awaited Snyder Cut of the terrible Justice League. Hmm. I wasn’t expecting this cameo … Continue reading

Wonder Woman 1984: needs more development/editing

It’s a good thing AT&T prepared for a beating by going with this sequel via streaming because 84 was another mediocre DC movie. What a pisser, I really liked the first one plus I was looking forward to the next chapter … Continue reading

RIP Chadwick Boseman

Such a damned shame too. I was really looking for to the Black Panther sequel and more Avengers movies because when I was a kid, he rescued them in the Seventies from some gravity-based villain (I guess Magneto was busy). He was young, … Continue reading

RIP Denny O’Neil

Another legendary person who helped mold modern comic books passed away peacefully in his sleep. Denny was a vanguard when it came to writing. Unlike many of his contemporaries at DC Comics, he was a journalist before contributing to Green Lantern … Continue reading

DC Comics and Diamond part ways

Yesterday, DC announced that it will have all its comic books, novels, etc. distributed by two new companies this Summer. For over 25 years, Diamond Comic Distributors has been the sole solution if you buy your stuff from direct-sales stores … Continue reading

Disenchantment characters remade seriously

My friend Steve (or as I refer to him as Stvee) did these “serious takes” on six key characters from my fave Disenchantment as part of a recent art challenge. I threw in some extra money toward his Kickstarter for going … Continue reading

RIP Mort Drucker

Mort Drucker was a legendary artist. As Michael J. Fox once said, if you’re mocked in MAD by him, you’ve arrived. He was the TV/Film equivalent of Weird Al even though Mort was around first. He had an incredible style combining … Continue reading

My contribution to this year’s Teddy Bear toss

One upside to having all those Pinballz points is that I often have enough to score a toy for the Stars’ charity thingy. Last year it was Rick & Morty, this time I figured a kid would love to have … Continue reading

RIP Ernie Colón

Another great guy who worked in Comic Books passed away last week. I never gave his heritage any thought because he went by the Anglo version of Ernesto, ergo, he was an American like Jack “The King” Kirby (Jewish) or … Continue reading
