Aquaman, a Must "Sea"

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  I went to see Aquaman over the holidays and found it to be pretty darn good.  Yes, there were two villains in the film, but Black Manta was little more than a set-up for #2.
     I will say that Patrick Wilson as Orm, Ocean Master, almost steals the show the way Loki did in Avengers some years back.  Not a perfect fim, mind you, but not as dark as Batman V Superman from a few years back.

     Boiling this down to a few words, I must say that Aquaman is one film that...holds water.

     Take care and adopt a comic (one with water in it) book today!

Great New Comic Books, These Last Few Weeks!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Boy, the last few weeks have been great comic book wise as I walk away from my favorite comic shops with a bundle this month.

     First, the latest Batman arc is great and it is good to see Batman back in control.  Also, pick up Batman Annual #3 out this week for a great tender story.

     The Defenders 4 or 5 parter is also interesting as I have loved the Hulk and Dr. Strange issues in particular.

     Lastly, Archie #700 is a real head twister as the gang wonders how Archie has changed over the summer break and why.  Read it and find out.

Goodbye Bob/Goodbye Bernardo

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Well, at the young age of 57, our dear Stephen, who created and gave us and Bob, all those wonderful square pants, passed away.

     Also, although he does not have much to do with comic books, Bernardo Bertolucci passed yesterday.  This director (mostly associated with "9 1/2 Weeks," I put him together with the masterpiece of "Novo Cento" (1900) a great film about two friends and their lives (and their countries) in Italy between 1900-1968.  Also he helped Sergio Leone write his brilliant, "Once Upon a time in the West."

     Take care and adopt some pants (that are square) and some films (by Berto).

Comic Books You HAVE to Get This Week

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  I must tell you that there are 2 books you must get this week...Batman and Archie (#700).

     Both books have mystery and great plots contained within with Archie letting loose with a great surprise ending and Batman having one helluva great monologue to Bane!

     Pick them up, you won't be sorry!

     Take care and adopt (the two comics I've mentioned already) some comic books today!

Post Turkey Day Comic Book Activity

     Take care and adopt a comic (one that you can relax with) book today!

     PS: I'm doing the same today!

Veterans Stand Forever!

     Hello Everyone, hope all is well.  Yesterday was Veterans Day and there were more than a few comics that depicted the exploits of those that served.  Since WWI ended 100 years ago, you might try reading, Steve Savage, Balloon Buster or Enemy Ace.

     Both comics show both sides of that "War to End All Wars."  Both comics have action and irony as well as chivalry.  Try them both and realize that veterans served throughout the years, just so we would be free to read our precious...comic books.

     Take care and adopt a (war) comic today!
