RIP David PhillipsStandard
Chris and I would like to take a moment to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of David Phillips. For those who don’t know him, he was an owner of The Launchpad a comic book store here in Lodi, California. A few days ago his life was senselessly, and tragically, cut short in an automobile accident.
I didn’t know him well at all. I knew him as a kind of quiet, sweet, and extremely funny guy from going in the shop. I walked past the shop a couple days before he was killed, and didn’t stop in. I just had lunch with the kids and wanted to get them home. But even just in that moment of walking by the window he was there, helping a customer, and he still had a wave and a smile for me. He always did. This is an unbelievable loss to his family, his friends, and the community. A GoFundMe has been set up in his name to help his family. If you can help, please do so, and if not please share the link, or this post.
A comic book store is not just part of a community, it is, but it is a community in and of itself.
Tomorrow is promised to no one. Tell your family and your friends you love them. Don’t assume like I did that you will see them again. Again, I ask you please to share the link.
Holy cow, it’s Hellcow!Standard
I recently picked up the Howard The Duck Omnibus on a
quaking screaming good deal, (seriously look around Marvel is clearing them out and you can snag them at around half off) and ran across what may be the greatest character in the history of the MU.
The internet is busy still eating its own tail with some movie about Star Tours or something and why you should love it or why you shouldn’t and something, something, NOSTALGIA, THE FEELS, and I’m just hiding in the mountains. The Force Awakens after the jump, bitches!
Key and Peele and Dwayne McDuffieStandard
Since this is the internet, and more importantly, the comics internet, and there is nothing it loves more than speculation based on almost nothing, I’ve got something for ye. Follow me after the jump.
