Only in Imagination Land would a man orphaned by the murder of his parents decide to dress in a skin tight bat costume in order to launch a vigilante campaign against crime. An even more preposterous concept would be that the teenage daughter of a local police commissioner would become so inspired by the aforementioned […]

Woody Harrelson as Carnage, eh? What the heck! Why not? He’s played a psychotic serial killer to some acclaim in the past, but he’ll always be Woody the Bartender to me. “How’s life treating you Mr. Peterson?” Good stuff…   Amazing Spider-Man #361, first appearance of Carnage, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $125.

Batman sure does have terrible taste in women. Every woman he has ever expressed any romantic interest in turns out to be some sort of arch-criminal, or journalist seeking to reveal his secret identity. Maybe Batman should try using his world famous detective skills to figure out why he’s so oblivious to his own terrible […]

I’ve heard good things about Rick and Morty, but I’m going to have to sheepishly admit that I’ve never seen a single episode. I traded my T.V. years ago for a near complete run of Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham comics. Nice, high grade copies. Totally worth it.   Rick and Morty #1, Very Fine […]

Deadpool versus Punisher! I suppose that really comes down to a question of firepower, so I’m going to give this one to Punisher because he has an awesome weaponized van and Deadpool doesn’t. Anybody else remember the Battle-Van Punisher used to roll around in? Haven’t seen him use that thing in awhile. I hope that […]

You’ve got Batman and then you’ve got Boba Fett. Their names both start with the letter B, they both wear a sort of mask-type deal, they both wear a cape, they both have all sorts of high tech gadgetry. I’m pretty sure that Batman and Boba Fett are the same person. There are just too […]

Nice of Batman and Robin to help out with the war effort like that. They came all the way from Gotham City to the South Pacific to make sure our boys had new ordnance to keep the Emperor’s troops at bay. Buy War Bonds!   Batman #30, World War II cover, Penguin appearance, Good Plus […]
