Who You Gonna Call this Halloween? My buddy Robby!

This October IDW will release Ghostbusters Holiday Special: What in Samhain Just Happened?!, written by Peter David with art by Dan Schoening.  Why am I pimping this particular comic you ask?  Well, beside the fact that Ghostbusters are cool, my buddy Robby was used as a cover model for this comic! The cover artist for […]

Coolest Piece of Mail I’ve Ever Received at Work

Yesterday at work I received a promotional brochure through the mail.  It’s without a doubt the single coolest piece of mail I’ve ever received at my office.  What was the brochure promoting you ask?  I have no idea.  It was the postage stamp used to mail the piece that made it so cool. Awesome.  Just […]

My Wife is a Wonder Woman

Have I mentioned lately how awesome my wife is?  The other day The Irrepressible Gena came home from shopping with this t-shirt.  She’s an absolute non-geek, but bought this shirt because she knew it’d make me happy.  She’s so fantastic!  And beautiful too! It’s a reproduction of the cover to Wonder Woman #253 dated March […]

Alpha Flight Return on the Horizon?

I love me some Alpha Flight!  I got hooked reading the John Byrne back issues in the late 1980s.  I’ve stuck with the team ever since.  Sadly they were wiped out in early 2006 in New Avengers (vol. I) #16.  In 2007 we did get a solid Omega Flight mini-series, but it didn’t spawn anything […]
