SALE INFO

This event is designed to insure every student that needs it, receives a back pack full of school supplies, to get them off to a great start this school year. Did we say BAG FULL? We sure did! If you head on over to STAPLES you'll find you can spend $25 and walk out with 4 bags full of items from the list below. Seriously, My Wife and I did it and purchased nearly 150 items for the money. PLEASE be sure to purchase a variety of items. We can't all just bring notebooks!

Seriously, you will be judged on this. If you spend $5 on school supplies and expect to take full advantage of this awesome sale, you will be sorry (and go home SALELESS)!
 
 
Want to get in on the sale sooner. I will be announced first through the Jetpack Ap!

Comic Review: Nightwing #25 (DC Comics)

Nightwing #25 (DC Comics)

While Batman has been fighting Bane and proposing to Catwoman, Dick Grayson has been building a nice life for himself in Bludhaven. He’s got a new girlfriend, some sweet job prospects, and things seem to be settling down for him. Until this issue, where Tim Seeley and Minkyu Jung really put ol’ Dick through the wringer. As the finale for the “Blockbuster” story arc, Nightwing #25 uses its extra pages to really bring in the emotional gut punches and set up some pretty interesting ideas for future issues.

Tim Seeley’s storylines for the past few months have involved Dick Grayson trying to come to terms with if he wants to be Nightwing for the rest of his life. After settling in with his girlfriend, he seems like he’s ready to put it all behind him, but all that changes in this issue, as old foe Blockbuster (who’s actually the brother of the original Blockbuster) pushes Dick to the brink. Surrounded by enemies on a boat with a ticking time bomb, Nightwing seemingly has no choice but to let the bad guys blow up. Or does he?

Seeley’s script wraps up this cliffhanger from last month fairly quickly, but he makes up for it with a surprisingly emotional element that comes later in the issue and a pretty cool spin on what Dick Grayson will be doing for employment in the upcoming months to come. By putting a focus on the personal side of Nightwing, he’s really invigorated this series and made the character a lot more personal. Dick Grayson is struggling with growing up, and as he watches his friends grow and change, he wonders if it’s time for him to do the same.

Minkyu Jung does a great a job of fitting in with the typical “Nightwing style” that fans will come to expect. While he doesn’t do anything that really makes his art stick out, that’s clearly what DC is going for with a lot of their DC Rebirth titles. There are plenty of excellent action and fight scenes, but like Seeley’s emotional beats, the real surprise here is the quieter moments. Jung‘s pages are able to bring the emotions in Seeley’s script out even more with some stunning and stark pages by the issue’s end.

Nightwing has a been a series that’s been flying under the radar since Dick Grayson returned to his costumed ways, but it’s been a very solid and fun superhero book since the first issue. While this issue probably isn’t the best one to jump onto, all signs are pointing towards issue 26 being a pretty interesting place to check in on the first Robin. Honestly there couldn’t be a better time to check this character out.

Comic Review: Astonishing X-Men #1 (Marvel Comics)

Comic Review: Astonishing X-Men #1 (Marvel Comics)

Not content with just two X-Men series for ResurrXion (three if you count Weapon X), Marvel’s putting out a brand new edition of Astonishing X-Men, the series that achieved instant classic status thanks to Joss Whedon and John Cassaday, only to then be watered down by Marvel trying everything and anything to make that magic work again. This time though, they’ve tasked Charles Soule, the writer of about 15 other comics (give or take) with coming up with new adventures for the team of mutants, and are pairing Soule with a different artist each issue, which is kind of brilliant when you think about how inconsistent Marvel is with keeping artists on a series. With Jim Cheung as the first artist on deck, there’s a lot of hype around this new version of Astonishing, and while it doesn’t live up to it, there’s still great potential for this series.

 

While walking around London, Psylocke is attacked by the Shadow King. Desperate for help, she sends out a psychic distress call to members of the X-Men that she’s worked with in the past, which conveniently gives us the team you see on the cover. After helping Psylocke subdue the carnage around her and regain her control, she realizes that Shadow King has not only grown in power, but is attempting to create a “web” of psychics that he can use to completely overtake the planet. With this new team assembled, the X-Men prepare to jump into the Astral Plane to take on Shadow King.

 

While Charles Soule’s script is a lot of set up, the one thing where Astonishing shines is characterization. Often times writers have trouble writing the X-Men simply because it’s such a large team. With so many characters, there’s bound to be some that either don’t sound like they should or are completely written out of the series. But with Astonishing’s opening issue, every character gets a moment to shine in some pretty great introductory pages. Soule is able to give succinct back stories for the characters on this team, and even teases at adventures that are going on just prior to this series that I really want to see (especially Gambit and Fantomex).

 

If you’re going to open a series with an excellent artist, you could do no better than Jim Cheung. Cheung’s style is expertly utilized here, and he sets the bar extremely high for the next artist. The devastation in London is drawn incredibly, and Cheung’s even able to nail some pretty intricate emotions and facial ticks on the characters. There’s a few odd panels here and there (Fantomex’s arms look a little thin at times), but I pity the artist who has to jump in on issue two.  These are quite the shoes to fill.

 

Astonishing X-Men may not leave the same impression as the Whedon and Cassaday run that came before it, but it’s still a solid set up issue that actually serves as a pretty good jumping on point for new and lapsed X-fans. Soule has crafted a really interesting team filled with dynamic personalities. Really the only thing that has me worried is the different artists for each issue gimmick that Marvel is putting out on this series. If done poorly, it could give the series an identity crisis. But for now, this issue was pretty damn great, and worth a read for X-Men fans.

SDCC 2017 Wrap Up!

Another year, another San Diego Comic Con. Just like any other year, there were a ton of awesome reveals and surprises at this year’s comic con, from an awesome WB panel that revealed surprisingly cool DC movies coming up; to Netflix revealing Stranger Things. With so much revealed, what were the top things to pay attention to? Well, lucky for you I kept an eye on everything this weekend (much to the chagrin of my girlfriend), and have prepared this article just for you! Read on for all the cool stuff to impress your friends with!

Doctor Doom

Easily the craziest news to come out of the movie scene of San Diego Comic Con was the announcement that Noah Hawley, the mastermind behind Fargo and Legion, would be producing a solo Doctor Doom film for Fox. There’s literally no other news regarding this announcement since Hawley blurted it out at the end of the Legion panel, but needless to say, even though I want the Fantastic Four back into the MCU, this could be a cool consolation prize.

Ready Player One

Ever since I heard the news that Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One would be turned into a feature film, I had to wonder “how the hell is THAT going to work?” Set in a future world where the population plays a Virtual Reality game that allows them to use whatever big pop culture item they want, the movie seemed impossible from a legal standpoint. But with Stephen Spielberg helming the movie, it seems like there’s enough here that will satisfy fans of the book, even if the trailer seems to be a little TOO full of itself.

Defenders

The closest release of for the con is Defenders, which finally showed off a brand new trailer for the upcoming Netflix show.  While Iron Fist definitely left a lot to be desired, it looks like the key to making him interesting was sticking him in with Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones. The wait for August 18 just got a lot more difficult.

 

 

Thanos_(Earth-616)_from_Thanos_Vol_1_4_0001

Thanos

It’s very rare to get comic news that surprises me from SDCC, but Marvel really sent some cool shockwaves with the announcement that Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw, the creators behind the spectacular Image series God Country, will be taking over the Thanos series for Marvel. Simply put, this is friggin’ awesome. Donny Cates has been kicking ass and taking names with his independent work, and I can’t wait to see what he does with the Mad Titan.

Rocko’s Modern Life

Revivals are all the rage now, and of course Nickelodeon is getting into the game. Rocko’s Modern Life was my absolute favorite Nicktoon growing up, but the upcoming special movie was something that I completely forgot about it before I saw the trailer that released Thursday night. Rocko, Heffer, and Philbert find themselves transported into the modern day, and the quick two minute trailer is chock full of the hilarious society skewering that the series is known for. After forgetting about it, the Rocko’s Modern Life movie is now one of my most anticipated things of the year.

Justice League

WB started to right the ship with critics and fans with Wonder Woman, and now all eyes go to the Justice League, which will bring the members of DC’s super team together for the first time. We already had one trailer released a few months back, but the one released for SDCC blew that one away. Running nearly four minutes, it features a ton of awesome moments that have me legitimately exited for many aspects of this film. Cyborg may still look iffy, but Aquaman, Wonder Woman ,and especially Ben Affleck’s Batman look to make up for him.

Stranger Things season two

Stranger Things made a huge impact on pop culture last year, so it’s only natural that it would get its own panel for comic con. Of course, a panel means we’ll get a trailer, and the trailer for season two of the hit show looks to be just as nostalgically awesome as the first season. There’s more 80’s goodness (check out that old school arcade), more Winona Ryder looking super worried for her son, and more Eleven! Plus it’s already showing to have a killer soundtrack

 

ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok

While Justice League’s trailer definitely impressed, the biggest trailer of the con has to be Thor: Ragnarok. Expectations were already high for the next Marvel Studios release, but director Taika Waititi seems to have hit it out of the park with this trailer. From insane Jack Kirby visuals to hilarious buddy cop moments with Thor and Hulk, Ragnarok just jumped to one of my most anticipated movie of the year.
