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 […]

Pins from Marvel Comics, Independents Comics, Movies, and TV

As mentioned yesterday, I was a big fan of comic-related pins in the late-80s and through the mid-90s.  Yesterday we featured pins from DC Comics, today we’re going to feature pins from Marvel Comics, independent comic companies, movies, and TV. Thankfully comic companies were generous with giveaway pins and also sold some nice quality cloisonne […]

Pins from DC Comics

Back in the late-80s through the mid-90s I was a big fan of pins.  I loved wearing pins on my shirts, especially those associated with comic books!  Thankfully comic companies were generous with giveaway pins and also sold some nice quality cloisonne pins. Cloisonne pins are small decorative pins worn on the lapel of a […]

OMG, I bought a Snuggie… Have I lost my mind?!?!

I bought a DC Comics Snuggie?!?!  First off, it’s not really a “Snuggie”, it’s a “Comfy Throw”.  What does that mean?  That means it’s a body-length blanket with sleeves made of fleece material; similar in design to a bathrobe that is worn backwards.  Yeah, I know.  That’s the definition of a “Snuggie”.  This is DC […]

The Irredeemable Lantern

I finally got around to visiting the comic shop this past weekend after nearly a month away.  Awaiting me were my Blackest Night Green Lantern rings!  I’m probably the millionth geek to relive this moment, but here it is anyway… my tribute to Green Lantern #49 (1994).

Star Trek Starfleet Academy Sweatpants

Here are some sweatpants I picked up back in 1995.  I really like the novelty of having “Property of Starfleet Academy Athletic Department” printed on them.  Most people don’t even notice what is printed on the sweatpants because so many schools print “Property of … Athletic Department” on their clothes.   Also, if you enjoy Starfleet […]

Superbaby Outfit!

Here is a cute outfit my daughter wore when she was still itty-bity.  I was so proud to show her off in this!  Well… at least until that other little girl at her daycare, Lena Luthor, got a kryptonite baby-rattle. What a spoiled brat that kid was!

My Lazy Halloween Costume

I went to a family-friendly party the night before Halloween.  We knew the majority of families through my ten year old step-son’s Cub Scout troop.  I didn’t have a costume prepared, so I cobbled together something from around the house.  Here is the result: Lord Vader getting ready for night-night… I’m holding a security blanket […]
