To The Comic Book Store #117

Listening to a pair of young brothers discuss a variety of comic book characters today made the entire trip well worth the hassle of driving in a downpour and getting soaked walking across the parking lot. And here's just a few tidbits...

  • Brother 1: "Deadpool is just really awesome."
  • Brother 2: "which one is he?"
  • Brother 1: "he's the blind guy"
  • Brother 2: "no stupid the blind dude is Devil Dare" (pretty sure he meant Daredevil)
  • Brother 1: "oh that's right, then Deadpool is just Wolverine in a red suit"

That discussion was followed by...

  • Brother 2: "who the heck is that guy" (looking at a giant poster of Watchmen's Rorschach)
  • Brother 1: "you know man that's the guy from that movie we watched a couple of years ago"
  • Brother 2: "oh so he's a character from a movie"
  • Brother 1: "yep it sucked too"
  • Father: "you guys do know it was a graphic novel before a movie"
  • Brother 1: "yeah sure dad, they made a comic book for that crap" (rolls eyes)

Kids, you gotta love 'em.

And now for this week's comics!

Steampunk Gizmoduck Sculpture

This awesome Gizmoduck sculpture from Deviantart user Timbone stands at 9 inches tall, and is a fantastic steampunk concept idea of the beloved character that appeared on both DuckTales and Darkwing Duck


Batman: Arkham Origins (Official Trailer)

Still have some doubts with this being a prequel game and all, but who am I kidding, I'll be picking this one up right away.

Now let's be honest here, if Disney started to redo their films with awesome Sci-Fi twists like this, we'd all watch them.

To The Comic Book Store #116

Things were a little dead over at our local comic store this week, so the only thing discussed this week was with an employee and focused on how much it sucks to be a geek and broke. Just in case you didn't know, it sucks.

First Promos For Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Extended Promo

Have some doubts with this series being on network TV, but hopefully ABC and Joss Whedon can make it work; it looks promising.

Would honestly love to see these versions of Raven and Starfire in their own series.

To The Comic Book Store #115

Sadly there wasn't a big crowd this week at my local comic book store and even worse those that were present held their conversations in Spanish, so I have no clue what anybody was talking about tonight; some people got pretty animated too, although that seems to be part of their culture.

Anyway, here's this week's haul.

Free Comic Book Day Heroclix Piece

For most people, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is all about the comics, but for me it's all about the FCBD Heroclix piece.

Now sadly I don't know much about the game, nor have I had the opportunity to play other than a store demo here and there, but what I do know is that I love this game. Do you know of another game that allows you to build teams by mixing characters from the DC, Marvel, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, and Halo universes? Yeah me neither.

Plus you also have to admit that this year's Iron Man piece is pretty kick butt.
