   Over on the site’s FaceBook page, I posted a Comic Book Cover Cavalcade of Holiday themed back issues in a photo gallery. Check it out here: Four Color Holiday Celebration. I post graphic heavy content on FaceBook to save space for blog-specific items. Anyhow, head over to the gallery, and check it out. There are a few magazine covers too, due to extra christmasy content.

   Happy holidays! 🕎☃🎁🎄🎉🖖🎅👹

Supergirl is now even More Super

Superman is a perfect addition to this 2nd season of Supergirl.

   Tonight’s season opener was a great ride and I feel like we have much to look forward to with this show. It had some low and many high moments on CBS, but we watched on. I really am excited about another light hearted show to watch during the week,  along with the Flash.

A Super Gift from my Super Wife

   Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍

That time Superman became the Flash…

Action Comics 314, by the Superior Curt Swan.

   Check out this awesome post from the blog of Dial-B-For-Blog about this story by Edwin Hamilton from Action Comics number 314. Drawn by Curt Swan, this is a fantastical tale from DC comic’s technicolor Silver Age. They really don’t make them like this anymore, and I doubt if they could or even that it would be acceptable by today’s standards.

   Visit Dial-B-For-Blog’s post here: dialbforblog.com/archives/306. I was reminded of the awesome tale by Thomas Perkins, @TNPerkins4 on Twitter, this morning. Swing over and check out his awesome artistic skills.

   Wordpress, my blog host, won’t allow certain plugins so hence the screenshot of the gallery link. I may be making some moves in the next few weeks. Earlier this month, I secured my domain name via Google Domains.

Nerd Rage & Geek Entitlement

   How I went from being overly critical about geek properties to a more laid-back, take it as it comes, fan.

   I used to be pretty harsh on TV shows and Films that just didn’t get it “right”. You know, “Captain America” (1990), Thor in “The Incredible Hulk Returns”, “Batman and Robin” (1997), I could go on. These, and other movies / tv shows like them, would be targets for my unyielding hatred. OK, perhaps hatred is a bit too harsh, but I loved to hate on them. Nothing was good enough. Even films like “The Lord of the Rings”, as great as they were, would set me off as to not being accurate enough. This sort of childish behavior went on for years, alright… decades.

5 Comic Book Titles that will be taking me into 2016

5 books 2016

   Nothing against other companies, I am a mainly a DC & Marvel guy. Money is always tight so limits need to be observed so I stick with the big two. Having said that, most of what those two are putting out has not been to my liking. Just not my sort of thing. The up side is that I don’t spend my hard earned credits on the titles that I am no longer into. Now back up until my final days of actual collecting (physical issues) I would stick it out and buy everything. Well, no longer.  Continue reading

Supergirl on CBS is Sci-Fi Fun! All of a sudden Mondays don’t seem so bad any more.

CSS6eImUcAAuqh-

   Supergirl is a lighthearted, good time. Melissa Benoist is awesome at playing a quirky, sometimes dorky and awkward Kara Danvers. The scope of the show seems a bit small at times but I am betting that once the popularity of it increases, so too with the budget. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Kara next week 🙂

   All of a sudden Mondays don’t seem so bad any more.

Super President? I thought I had Seen It All…

   If you are looking for a political rant, move along, nothing like that here. I gave up politics, along with religion & superstition, a long time ago. No THIS is Far, far worse my friends.

suppres1   YouTube is a hell of a site. You can find all sorts of interesting and frightening things on there. Today I found a show called “Super President”.  Wait. What? “Super PRESIDENT”? WTF?

This had to be a fake. A cleverly rendered retro project by some brilliant animation artist. Alas it is not. This show was an actual thing. I was shocked that I had never heard of it before. Not that I am a Know-It-All, but I am well versed in completely USELESS knowledge and being familiar with this show would rank right up there with that level of pointlessness.

600full-super-president-screenshot   Produced by the DePatie-Freleng animation company, “Super President” aired Saturday mornings on NBC from September, 1967 to December, 1968. It was voiced by Paul Frees as  and the American President, James Norcross, who gained superpowers in a Cosmic Storm. Along with super strength he gained the ability to change his molecular structure into any substance he wishes (i.e. Acid, Metal, etc…).

   Ummm… yeah. Well, it was very fun to make fun of, so there is that 😉

   Watch an episode for yourself. Continue reading
