A back-to-back Jabber!  (we’ve lost track of time without Guests in the store, so we forgot to post the last one earlier) The Mask! Remember him? Jim Carrey hamming it up in a yellow zoot suit? Yeah well, the comic is … significantly … more violent than the film. In fact, the cover art is […]

I’m pretty sure that all of the characters in the books featured this week are immune to any earth-born illnesses – so that’s good, right? Possible exception of Beta Ray Bill when he isn’t transformed into Thor mode. He’s an alien so he may actually be more susceptible to earth diseases when he’s not in […]

Things to do while under quarantine: Read comics … that’s really all that you’re allowed to do. Read comics … nothing else…. Oh! I guess that you can play board games too. As long as there are less than ten people playing. You can also play with and/or admire action figures, but really you should […]

I didn’t watch Lost, but please don’t “@” me about not having watched the show; maybe I will one day but I haven’t yet, OKAY?!

Boy I’ll tell ya, I sure would be up for a really awesome Silver Surfer video game. Surfer has only ever had his own video game one time, and it was on the old NES – and it SUCKS! It’s way too hard and super un-fun to play. Consider this week’s post a plea to […]

Well I hope you folks weren’t expecting some sort of Valentine’s themed post from me today in honor of the holiday. The reasons for this decision are variegated, but the primary factor would have to be a distinct lack of key issues featuring romantic imagery in our recently arrived inventory. I’m sure that if I […]
