Reviews: Heroclix Mutants and Monsters Set →
You may have heard me rant and rave about the delay we had in getting the new Heroclix Mutants and Monsters set here locally, and my need for a Devil Dinosaur figure. Well, we got the set in yesterday, and I did get my big red dino. However, there are some other not too happy things about this set. Characters I’m going to rate these characters on two levels 1) an objective level and 2) my...

My favorite New Comic Company of 2007? Red 5 Comics. And not just becasue they give me free comics. http://www.red5comics.com

The second best photo I've seen today →
From Dr. K, who posted this yesterday, but I just now saw it today. Man, I really need to figure out why my Newsfox RSS reader stopped working…
I don’t understand how Diamond & comics printing schedules are so screwed up that a holiday LAST week delays new comics THIS week.
Heroes & Dragons Comics Club →
I’ve talked some here about the Heroes & Dragons Comics Club, but I wanted to point all 10 of my faithful readers to the new Ning powered HDCC Networking Site. It’s a private site, mostly for our members, but if any of you Poptown readers are interested in joining, drop me a line.
Fooling around with a Ning site
Huh - been a while since I looked at Tumblr. They’ve made it harder to import RSS Feeds
Mel B was robbed
@stellargirl They took one of those from my buddy Chris Sims http://tinyurl.com/2y9q4r
I'm honestly shocked at this. →
Mostly because: A) I never went to college (though I did take college courses in High School) B) I scored higher than Dr. K, who is in fact a college professor.
I like minor league sports teams that are named after comics in a round about way. http://tinyurl.com/2bpwvx

I’m not really sure why I still do this - I will inevitably get something that I ordered that I forgot about. Anyway, lets me see what is feeding my habit. Previews $4.50 I’m just going to stop saying anything about me getting Previews. USAGI YOJIMBO #107 $2.99 There isn’t much I can tell you about Usagi Yojimbo that I haven’t already. If you’re not getting this book,...
bidding on a Super Nintendo. I could have bought one for $10 at a yard sale a couple months back. Now $30+
BSG Razor comes out on DVD Dec 4 - crisis averted. Surprised it’s coming out so soon after airing.
Chatting with Chad - which should be the name of a morning talk show or something
@beaucoupkevin Thanks BTW
@beaucoupkevin DANG IT
Did Razor come on and I totally missed it? Curse Sci-fi’s Razor page being down.

Not going to talk about the bad football of the weekend. Moving on… —- Mindy Kaling gives us a photo tour of Scranton, PA. (Via.) —- The new Heroclix set didn’t make it to my LCS this past week. The Heroclix sets came out so close to each other, that I knew little about this set, and wasn’t that enthusiastic about it. Then I looked online, and flipped out because this...
@lisaatneptune No - they didn’t come in this week. Supposedly next week they’ll get their shippment. Happened last set too
Really wished I’d scheduled this meeting for Monday instead of today
No new Heroclix at my LCS! NNNOOOOO!!! I NEED MY DEVIL DINOSAUR!!!!
Reviews: New Avengers Vol. 6 →
I realize that the following review is short of shooting myself in the foot, since I’ve just put this book up on eBay, but that’s just the integrity that I bring you dear reader. On the surface, a book about an Avengers team led by Luke Cage that features Iron Fist, Spider-man, and Wolverine fighting The Hand to save Echo should pretty good. I like all those characters, and the side...

Cracks me up every time I see it.
Goo Goo Dolls are playing at half time. BOO!!!
Wish I didn’t have to work tomorrow
@lisaatneptune Holy crap! New Heroclix came out today? How did I miss this?
I really hope it rains tomorrow. Nothing beats staying inside and watching TV while it rains.

Funny thing. I was opening up a page to write this, and in a new tab went to Amazon to check on something. I was greeted there by a letter introducing Amazon’s new mobile reader, the Kindle. I’ll let you go read about the thing, but it sounds pretty sweet. Anyway, lots of interesting things out and about with DC and Marvel’s new Digital/Web comics initiatives. An interesting...
Yes, I like bad pop music. What of it?
How does Nicole Scherzinger release like 4 singles, but no album as of yet?

After last week’s awesome explosion, it’s nice to see we get things to cool off a little. SPIRIT #11 $2.99 Counting down to dropping… INCREDIBLE HULK #111 WWH $2.99 This will be the little bow on top of this event for me. I must say I’m intrigued by a book that will feature Hercules and Amadeus Cho; but not sure if I’m intrigued enough to pick it up going forward....
So tired - almost fell asleep when someone was talking to be just now.
Legs still sore from yard work I did on Friday
Football and boiled peanuts and beer.

Carolina Panthers are pretty much dead. NFL Football as a whole has been really bad this year. There are only like 4 or 5 teams worth watching this year. Bah. —- Finished KOTOR II on the light side. That end movie sequence was very “huh?” Playing now on the Dark Side. —- Been reading New Avengers.In theory, I should be all about a book featuring Power Man, Iron Fist,...
