Watchmen – Mayfair RPG Stats (1987)

Believe it or not, there was a time when Watchmen wasn’t the pinnacle of comic book achievement.  Back in 1987 it was simply a comic book being published by DC and was subject to the same exploitation as all other mid-80s comic books.  To be specific, it was the subject of three role-playing supplements from […]

Atari 2600 vs. a modern-day 9 year old

We found my wife’s old Atari 2600 at her mother’s house a few months back.  I’ve been fiddling around with it off-and-on ever since.  Sadly I discovered that it was missing some pieces.  Thanks to what must have been divine intervention, I found the final piece I needed this past weekend.  With great anticipation and […]


Star Trek Comic Book Advertisement – Nov 1984

Watchmen – Saturday Morning Cartoon Intro from the late-80’s/early-90’s

This is freakin’ hilarious and brilliant!  It represents everything that was right (and wrong) with late-80’s/early-90’s cartoons.  Genius! Thanks to Michael Bailey of Fortress of Baileytude and Views from the Longbox for directing me to it.


Watchmen was AWESOME! **NO SPOILERS**

Just saw the Watchmen movie.  Man, it was great!  Don’t worry, no spoilers here.   I just had to say how much I enjoyed it.  Going in I was optimistic, but was still considering the option that it might disappoint.  I was wrong!  It surpassed my wildest dreams. At the start, I told myself to forget […]


Blue Devil Advertisement – June 1984

Here is an awesome advertisement from Blue Devil #1 (June 1984).  I’ve mentioned it here before, but Blue Devil is one of my top five favorite superheroes.  I think this ad really captures the fun of the series.  All the facial expressions are smiling and cheerful, Blue Devil is leaping into action, and there is […]


Watchmen Graphic Novel Review

Back in July 2007, the gang from THE UNIQUE GEEK got together to discuss the Watchmen graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. On the call was Jon, Patrick, Todd, Holly, Cary, Maria, Sterling, Michael Bailey, and myself. We discussed the themes, characters, and who is hotter – Dr. Manhatten or Night Owl. You […]
