If you aren’t in Northern California, you may not have seen this story on your news. A young boy by the name of Joey Sinco has been battling brain cancer, the University Of The Pacific and the Make-A-Wish foundation took some time to help Joey feel like the hero he is. You can watch the video here among the things done during the halftime of the game at UOP was a presentation of a custom cover of Joey and Captain America by local creators, and genuinely great guys Sean Miller and Travis Compton from Anchor Comics, who you may remember from one of our early episodes of the podcast where we talked to them a bit about making comics and more. That episode was recorded at my LCS The Launchpad. Which brings to the second thing I wanted to link to.
Mike from The Launchpad has a Kickstarter in progress called Night Of The Bloody Hooks, which is a set of horror themed adventure hooks for table-top RPG’s, they don’t need too much more to go, but if you are a gamer, go give it a look and if you can’t donate, please share. Thanks so much!
The new trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron just dropped, and it looks freaking awesome! We finally get to see a bit of that Hulk vs Hulkbuster action, some speculation had been that it wasn’t Tony in the armor awhile back, but it sure looks like him piloting it in this trailer. And Hulk looked pretty beat up there. And it makes me wonder, can you have a Marvel team without a redhead being a member at some point? Or two. And that dude is Klaw right? Who was the chick we saw from behind? Is it May yet? I’m dying to see The Vision.
What do you guys and gals think? It looks pretty freaking rad!
So what do you guys think? How does this work without Hank Pym? Ultron is… some sort of defense program that Tony Stark had something to do with, now? Is The Vision the Jarvis program in a body? Will the rest of the world learn that androids can cry? One thing is for certain, I made it through this whole post without a single, “Spader? I hardly know her” joke, which is a shame because both veterinarians and fans of James Spader love those jokes. Sound off in the comments! Let’s speculate! Rampantly!
