To The Comic Book Store #114

Arrived at the comic book store this week and walked right into the middle of two heated debates; one focusing around the recent Thor 2: The Dark World trailer, and the other about the number of mutants appearing in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past film.

Had to steer away from the debate over the Thor 2 trailer because, well after listening for five minutes it became apparent that the entire discussion was focusing solely on Loki's hair, and with no women around, this was just kinda weird.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past discussion was an interesting debate; some arguing that the film is trying to include far too many mutants, some saying not enough, two guys kept referring back to X3: The Last Stand and how there was so much wasted potential with the various mutants that were no more than background fillers, and then there was the single guy who believes that Bryan Singer is some sort of God and can't do no wrong and that X3 would have been successful with Singer at the helm. Kid you not this guy literally said "Singer is a God and you guys can suck it" somewhere between ten to twenty times.

And now here's this week's comics:

Patton Oswalt's Star Wars / Marvel Poster

Here is the poster created for Patton Oswalt's Star Wars / Marvel rant seen on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

And just in case you missed it, here's the video.

Got to admit, he hits on some pretty good ideas. We vote for Patton Oswalt to write or direct at least one of the upcoming Star Wars films.
