Bronze Age Marvel Madness

I can’t explain it, but I’ve been infected with Bronze Age Marvel Madness! I’m loving old Marvel comics from the Bronze Age!  This is surprising because I’m predominantly a post-Crisis DC guy (or Tween-Crisis DC guy to be exact).  The Bronze Age is often defined as mainstream comics published from 1970 to 1985.  Growing up […]

Let Your Geek Flag Fly

I picked up a new bumper sticker this week – LET YOUR GEEK FLAG FLY!  I love it! I bought the sticker at Lofty Pursuits.  I can’t seem to find it for sale on the internet, but if you go looking it was produced by “Duck and Cover”.  I’m still deciding whether to slap the […]

Calvin and Hobbes Did Inception Years Ago

Just in case you’re wondering, Calvin and Hobbes did Inception years ago.  Christopher Nolan clearly ripped off Bill Watterson.  Geez…

Are Aliens Real? First Contact about to be Admitted?

Are aliens from another planet real?  Could evidence of first contact be just around the corner? Two stories caught my interest last week.  The first story was about seven U.S. Air Force personnel admitting that UFOs are real.  The second story was about a newly discovered planet that may be able to support life.  After […]
