Alpha Flight Funnies

As some of you may remember, I’m a big Alpha Flight fan.  Yes, they are the laughing stock of the Marvel superhero jet-set, but I still love them.  Thanks to Rob over at The Aquaman Shrine, I stumbled across this series of Alpha Flight comic strips by James Duncan.  They are hilarious!  Below I’ve presented […]

This first one takes place between the first […]

Malibu Ultraverse Origins

As I wrote earlier this week, Malibu’s Ultraverse was full of creativity and energy.  I’ve come across an issue entitled Ultraverse Origins that was published eight months after the Ultraverse line launched.  This book contains some good, succinct origin tales for many of the characters.  Today I’m presenting just a handful of these origin stories. […]

Dawn of the Ted – Misery Bear

Here is a funny horror video.  Wish I’d shared this with y’all last week.  There are no words, but be sure you’ve got your speakers up.  The music and sound effects really make the film. Click here if you can’t view the embedded video above.  If you enjoyed this, there is a whole series of […]

Geek Themed Keychains

I’ve accumulated quite a few geek related keychains over the years.  I seem to have a weakness for buying them even though I’ve only used a few of these keychains on a regular basis.  Today we’re going to look at the ones I’ve managed to hang onto. Below are several DC Comics related keychains.  The […]

REVIEW: Soldier Zero #1 from Stan Lee and BOOM Studios

I picked up BOOM! Studios’ Soldier Zero #1 upon the recommendation of an acquaintance.   I wasn’t expecting much from the comic but found myself pleasantly surprised.  Apparently this book has broken all sales records for BOOM! Studios, making it their best-selling comic ever. The story was written by Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Action Comics) with […]

I Miss the Ultraverse

I miss the Ultraverse.  It was a shining star that burned bright and was extinguished before it’s time. Back in early 1993, Malibu Comics launched a line of superhero titles under the Ultraverse imprint.  It was designed to be a shared universe where the characters could crossover and interact whenever the writers wanted. The early […]

Comic Book Themed Wrist Watches

I’ve owned a few comic book related watches over the years.  Most have moved on to the great temporal graveyard in the sky, however, I’ve hung on to a couple worth sharing. Below is a Fossil watch from 1989 featuring a fantastic drawing of the Joker.  I’m fairly confident the artist was Kyle Baker.  I […]

ACQUIRED: Doctor Who Novel by Michael Moorcock

Last week I picked up the new Doctor Who novel by famed sci-fi/fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, The Coming of the Terraphiles. The novel stars the current Doctor (as portrayed by Matt Smith) and his companion Amy Pond (as portrayed by Karen Gillan).  The BBC has previously published hundreds of Doctor Who books, but they are […]

Paul McGann’s Doctor Who Gets a New Outfit

Looks like the Eighth Doctor’s costume is getting a refresh!  Paul McGann appeared last week at the Armageddon Pop Culture Expo in Auckland, New Zealand.  While there he unveiled a new costume for his Doctor.  According to McGann, it’s a work-in-progress and it’s still unofficial.  McGann is hopeful it will be adopted by the folks […]
