This is a x-post from Winged Wolves.
So apart from spending most of my day either working or wrangling four children, I generally have an hour or so to myself. I’ve spent a lot of time since last November playing Skyrim on my XBox (which could probably be a post for another time.) I also play other video games (including spending a lot of time with Anne and her siblings playing League of Legends together) and have even instigated XBox Friday at work, but really I’m using this piece of the internet to talk about how my love affair with comic books as been rekindled.

X-Men Writer Chris Claremont at Library Square
The central theme of Claremont’s X-Men stories is prejudice. The X-Men are blessed and cursed with genetic mutations; some with visible differences, some not so visible. Claremont portrays the mutant experience as no one has, with parallels to our own human experience.
His initial unbroken 17-year run on the X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. His run culminated with the launch of the new title, X-Men, whose first issue sold over 7.6 million copies, a record that stands today. In total, Claremont has sold in excess of 500,000,000 comics worldwide including work on Aliens Vs Predator, Sovereign Seven, Star Trek and many more. His X-Men story, “Dark Phoenix,” with its radical treatment of the story’s central character, paved the way for reinterpretation of the superhero mythos throughout the industry.

Spicing up the blog with a classic from the "safe" archives at The Perry Bible Fellowship.

I get a daily email of Calvin & Hobbes comics from a friend to my Gmail account. Well one of the handy smart links that Google provides sent me to this web page. I have not read all 50 of them but it seemed like something some of you might be interested in.

Things went well, but we'll never be satisfied until the year that every con-goer fuses into a single, omnipotent digital entity. The convention's biggest hurdle is that it happens to be held within the confines of the physical universe, with its intractable laws and finite space. I wonder who we can talk to about that.
The man continues to churn out the best comedic writing available
is that from PA? they didn't have their news post up when i checked
I'm on such a freaking PA kick this week
all that coverage of PAX from people whose blogs I read kind of overloaded my system
I got caught in a recursion loop
I feel like going to PAX would be the equivalent of a pilgrimage to Mecca

For those who read today's XKCD and said, "Huh?"

So I've been wondering ever since I saw the first trailer for the new Incredible Hulk Movie why they would redo the story so soon after pouring millions into the Ang Lee version. I mean, it was only 2003 when that came out. The reviews were mixed, but that doesn't seem like a good enough reason to simply write over it. Continue reading "Avengers Assemble"

And you thought watching paint dry would be boring. Just read a few of them and see if I'm not right.

AoD, were you telling me the other night you like Death Note? I have a vague memory of you saying so... if that is indeed the case, may I direct your attention to this comic I found on deviant art? It made me laugh. (ps click on the image to make it bigger.)

Wren's reaction to the latest OotS:
"Well, that's just rude."

I guess everyone has noticed the lack of promised comic...but I hope everyone has also noticed the lack of Malyss/Watchik on WoW, which means that I have been working, not goofing off. I'm having trouble with some of the angles, (for example, I just can't seem to get Tessa's eyes aligned in one panel ;_;) and things like that, so we should have a page at least by the next time I see you guys (wed.) Okay? I love you all.

Ok, so Sideshow and I made a trip to the Comic Book shop (Night Flight) during our lunch hour today. Guess what! They now have a Dragonlance Chronicles comic book coming out on a regular basis, and they have a trade paperback comic version of the Drizzt Do'Urden origin trilogy. Maybe I suffer from a little nostalgia when I think of those titles, but they're really what got me interested in the role-playing universe.
It's kind of funny to think how much of a ripple they've created in the small pond of my life. I probably wouldn't have ever played Baldur's Gate if I hadn't read the Icewind Dale trilogy (as previously covered here). If I hadn't ever played Baldur's Gate, I definitely wouldn't have read through its rulebook and probably wouldn't have ever been interested enough in D&D to ever play it (or at least request Joey to DM for us here at the office). If I hadn't ever started taking an interest in D&D, I probably would have been turned off by Daboo's profile. So, maybe I'm stretching things a bit, but at least you can understand why I'd get excited over these old books.

No comic this week. Because I've been recruited as a personal assistant for a new English teacher who is compulsively anal about things getting done N-O-W. And so I'm in Sandy, and my computer is miles and miles and thirty minutes away, and there won't be a comic up for...well, days, at least. I know, I know. But, what can you do?
