Got 28 minutes of your life to spend on Matt and I talking new arrivals, Happy #1, Space Punisher, crappy old Image Comics, movies, Star Trek the Next generation, comic cons, Mark Hamill and Corvette Summer? Like hearing me say “um?” Have I got a video for you! Sorry if it’s a little dark this [...]
Some goofs on our first take. The store’s wi-fi cut out for about five minutes, thus making us late for the 4pm Hangout On Air. We missed a chance to have a prominent celebrity customer join us because of the delay in setting back up, and I still have a lot to learn about the [...]

Junji Ito’s wild horror manga Gyo is getting the anime treatment and I’m squirming with excitement! Up until fairly recent I was only vaguely familiar with Ito’s work, mostly from the live action adaptation of Uzumaki and seeing his name on various books in the store. That is until I picked up Gyo. Immediately blown [...]

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of being a guest on my favorite cult movie podcast, Junk Food Dinner! I know I’ve been talking about them a lot lately, but they’re great guys and I really support their cause. I brought Psychos In Love (which I also recently talked about, get used to it) [...]
I figured it’s time to start some reoccurring blog entries. So how about a tattoo tribute search, and who better to start with than everyone’s favorite merc with a mouth… Deadpool! So if you got an awesome Deadpool tattoo post it in the comments. I myself am tattooless (still hoping to be buried in [...]
