Oh, dip! Star Wars #1 (written by FP fave Brian Wood) and Superior Spider-Man #1 drop today, along with a crap-ton more new comics and GNs. Come on by. We’re open ’til midnight tonight.
Star Wars collectors!!! The only truly indispensable archive of action figures from a galaxy far, far away is in stock NOW! World famous SW expert Stephen Sansweet (author of more than a few of my fave pictorial books on the subject) returns to exhaustive reference books with this gorgeous tome… Pretty sweeeeeeeeet.

For the 5 of you who follow the adventure of Chris Troy and Fantasy Football, I wisely started the Patriots defense over the weekend. That was 25 points I needed. A shame it was up against the Jets who I actually like and are doing terrible this season…… HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING, I’LL TALK [...]
Comic Books as we know them are now over. Too bad, really, there were some super sweet books coming out this week, such as The Goon #41, Wolverine and the X-Men #15, Before Watchmen: Minutemen #3, Avenging Spider-Man #11, The Detective Comics Annual #1, and Justice League #12, which sure seemed like it had a [...]
When I was a kid, I was really into LEGO, even more than I was into action figures. As the years went on, though, I noticed the sets were declining in quality, mostly due to the amount of effort they were funneling into the Star Wars sets. As a result, I got more and more [...]
My buddy Mark Freado over at Junk Food Dinner is now hosting a movie night in Bed-Stuy, along with Kevin Merryman, who also runs a radical blog called Cultural Atrocities.

So totally NOT!) so let’s check in with Mars Rover Opportunity, who, unlike fellow trailblazer Spirit, currently has power and is about to investigate a recently fallen meteorite on the Red Planet. via NASA and JPL: Images that NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity took at [...]
I saw this with a news reel and 2 ‘toons for a nickel. They served real butter back then, not “butter topping.” Ah, those were the days…
Here on Earth we use games of both the card and video variety to distract ourselves from the misery of our daily existence. Logically, who wants to be an unemployed barber when you can be an attractive 60th level elf woman who rides a tiger? A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, however, life was different.

By Devin T. Quin Arg! T’is time again for the San Diego Comic Con, the biggest and most expensive trip most nerds will take outside of their parents basements this year.
