Howdy all you nerd-pokes. So I picked up Fantastic Four #2 & #3 to find out how the next two issues may give me a idea of the direction the series maybe heading. So the feeling I got from reading these two issues is that this could be a good old adventure series. Now I talking about adventure in the lines of something along a Indiana Jones in comic book form. Okay maybe not in the lines of a Indiana Jones movie but I hope you understand my meaning. Matt Fraction’s writing is light and enjoyable with very little of the tech babble that you see in books and in TV shows these days. To me it seems that more books spend there time trying to show off how technical they can be then just writing a good story. Again like I wrote in my review of FF#1 I still am reminded of the old Lost in Space TV show from 1965–1968. Now that is not a bad thing because that show was good fun. I also can see a similar style to shows like Supernatural that has a core story that has a tread thru the series but it still has their creature of the week. Both books are a good read and fun. Also the feeling of books written in the 70’s and 80’s. The good books written in the era. Mark Bagley art is still enjoyable to look at, smooth and pleasing to the eye. The ink work by Mark Farmer and Mark Morales really help the art pop out.
Overall the did like the new FF and hope that the writing and art can keep up. I hope that the book will continue to be a good adventure book. If they can continue to have the creature of the month and Reed’s quest for a cure as the anchor thru the series I for one hope this has a good run.
So in the short hairs of the review was the FF #2 & #3 a fun read? Hell yeah and I may add it to my pull list. Only I have to remove one the list also to make room.
Remember comics are made to be enjoy, not destroyed.
This is a nice little mash up I found on the Marvel YouTube channel.
Here is a sneak peak of Marvel event coming this March
Hello all you beautiful nerds how it going? Well the other day I found out that that the SyFy channel in the good old US of A was going to broadcast Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome movie that was a web series. Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome is set in the tenth year of the war between the Colonies and the Cylons and follows the young William Adama. Adama fresh from the academy is assigned to the Battlestar Galactica. To his shock and amazement he is assigned to a Colonail Raptor and not a Viper.
Originally green lighted for a pilot for series it ended up a web series. I remembering hearing about these awhile back and forgotten about it. I am glad now that I found it floating on the net. Blood and Chrome is a good entertaining movie but does have some slow parts in it . The acting is good, not second class like you might fine is a web based series. Luke Pasqualino as the young Adama was a great choice. Ben Cotton as Lieutenant Coker Fasjovik, co-pilot on the raptor with Adama(Luke Pasqualine) starts out rough but the two blend together well as the movie moves along. The rest of the cast some you will have seen before do a excellent job. We also get to see the start of the Cylons move to final verison that we see in the series Battlestar Galactia.
Like they tried to do with Star Trek:Enterprise and show us the history of the Federation, Blood and Chrome tries to show us the events that lead up to to the final season of Battlestar Galactia. If it was a series the stories available are huge. I for one would love to see more of these characters. If your Battlestar fan and need a fix I highly recommend you find Battlestar Galactica:Blood and Chrome
Hello Nerd and Nerdits. So how is it going? So I finished reading Deadpool #4 and I have to say that I am really enjoy getting this book ever month. It is my son’s copy but I read it before giving it to him. This issue old Deadpool is still hunting down dead presidents brought back to life by a Necromancer. I think Deadie is having a grand old time doing it. Deadpool gets JFK’s attention by pretending to be Marilyn Monroe and shows off a little Deadpool noodle. JFk may of wished he could have put a bullet in his head at that moment. Later in the book Deadpool gets in to ring for a good old smash mouth fight with old Abraham Lincoln still wearing his top hat. Deadpool asks Abe if he has every made a trip up to Canada and put a short hairy baby in a woman. Get the drift, huh, do yeah?? Deadpool makes his way thru a few of the dead presidents slicing and dicing them up as he dances thru the panels. The whole book if fun to read and has a few good giggles in it. Brian Posehn a stand up comedian and Gerry Duggan writing is witty and entertaining. The snappy dialogue and breaking down the third wall is excellent and I enjoy the mouthy, smart ass Wade Winston Wilson better than his somber less funny counter part I just finished reading in Deadpool Killustrated. I like the art work of Tony Moore. Not as smooth and clean like the art I prefer but I can not draw as well as him so I not going to bitch. Tony’s art reminds me of something I would find in Mad magazine and I mean that in a good way. Over all I like this book a lot and plan on keeping it in my pull box even after my son stops collecting it.
So folks did I have fun reading DEADPOOL. Hell yeah, fun enough to keep reading it. Hey give it a shot. If do not like it then give it away to the kid next door.

I sat down the other night a watched Part 2 of Batman The Dark Knight Returns. The movies picks up just after the events of Part 1. This time the story centers on the return of the Joker(Michael Emerson) coming back to play with the Batman(Peter Weller). The Joker tricks his shrink to allow him on a local talk show. The Batman arrives only to be greeted by Gotham city finest. The Joker kills his shrink and the audience allowing him to escape and plan his final play date with the Batman. Batman escapes with the help of Robin(Ariel Winter) and heads over to Selina Kyle and finds her bound gagged by the Joker. Robin finds cotton candy on the floor and Batman believes the Joker will strike next at the amusement park. This sets up for the final battle between the two. The fight smashes thru the House of Horror and ending in the Tunnel of Love with the Joker killing innocent people all the way thru the park. Batman feels guilty for all the people the Joker has killed because of letting the Joker live. The final fight between the two if fitting end.
Also the B side of the movie has Batman(Peter Weller) and Superman(Mark Valley) confronting each other. Superman is working for the U.S. government as a operative in exchanged to still help people. The White house is being embarrassed by Batman vigilantism and wants the big blue boyscout to go and bring him in. This leads to a action packed fight between the icons of the DC universe. Batman builds a Superman battle suit to help even the odds and with the help of Robin and Oliver Queen(Robin Atkin Downes) take down Superman. Batman only weakens Superman to show that he can be beat and Batman was the man that did it.
DC has a been able to put out well crafted animated movies that are better than their live action movies. With the exception of the Batman movies if you want good story telling and fast paced action try the animated series to DC movies. All in all Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 and 2 are a good buy and fun to watch.
