Before we get started, I will admit something, while I was itching to get back to writing reviews, when I got the review copies of Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia, I was hesitant to get started, mostly because I am not what you would call a wrestling fan, at least not since I was a kid in the mid 80’s. I also wasn’t sure if six issues would be a big chunk to jump back into reviews with after so long. So what is Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia, and what did I think? Climb up on those turnbuckles and jump with me.
Sorry for the lack of posts for the site, the last couple of years have been difficult, between school for me, the pandemic, distance learning for my kids, and my own mental health, I haven’t had it in me to keep up with things. The site and the show will be up and running, with some changes, one of which will be a new phone number for the podcast (the old one expired). I have a review of a comic to post soon, as well as a list of a few things that I enjoyed in 2020, it’s been hard this year to read and watch things for me, concentration has been hard. I could read something or watch something and it just wouldn’t penetrate the fog in my brain for the most part. You would think being stuck at home would have been a very productive time, unfortunately, it wasn’t. I am feeling better than I have in awhile, and look forward to getting back to writing and podcasting. It’s been too long. I’ll be doing some changes to the links on the sidebar, and trying to find my way in the new landscape. I look forward to doing reviews of comics, and talking to new, creative folks, and checking in with old friends. Thank you, and see you soon.
I finally got me some glasses, so I can actually read and see enough to write again, so I figured I would share an album I am just goofy for. I’m All Ears the new album by Let’s Eat Grandma.
Hey guys and gals, sorry for the lack of anything lately. Been dealing with some heavy stuff here, but hopefully things are getting better. At least they are for now.
I haven’t been keeping up on new comics, but I have all kinds of stuff to go through, including a whole heaping buttload of John Byrne’s Avengers West Coast if that’s something that might interest you.
Finally got Netflix so I’ve been cramming things on there, so we can get some reviews out of that too.
As for the show, you know as much as I do, but it will be back in some way or form, as well as a new show focusing on the paranormal in tribute to Art Bell. (I’m all about dogmen lately)
Let me know what you guys want to see here, or if you want to write something, get in touch. If you’re a creator looking to talk about a book, we can make it happen. Or we can make fun of the ComicsGate morons. I mean, everyone should, I have missed writing and podcasting so much. Take care,
Happy post Thanksgiving day to ye, or as it’s also known in some circles, Black Friday, and as our buds over at Axeology are celebrating, Black Metal Friday. Join me as I get about as close to Black Metal as I am likely to get, and check out a hidden gem I stumbled across on Bandcamp.
Zombies. Clowns. The circus. Zombie clowns at the circus. Yes, please.
Atheist Tiki Hour is the new book from Logospilgrim, an author whose previous book, There’s A Hula Girl On My Dashboard, I wrote about (here). Pour yourself a drink, and follow me past the jump, and let’s kick back for a few.
The Vision is one of the books I recently picked up during the crazy bit of pricing on Amazon, and Sweet Jumpin’ Jesus, am I glad I did. It’s extraordinary.
Not really a review, but I had a few words to say about Modern Animals from Fifth Dimension Comics. NSFW language ahead.
If you check out the Amazon Kindle app you can find screaming deals all over on Marvel Comics. I picked up both volumes of The Vision, the New Mutants Epic Collection (500+ pages), and the Black Panther Panther’s Rage stuff for like $12. Swoop in and get some comics, there are tons of recent books and big collections, with a lot of them under $5.
