7/4/2018 - Trade Review - robin: Son of Batman, Vol. 1


    Patrick Gleason. I thought you needed Peter J. Tomasi to make magic. Boy wonder, was I wrong. I did a list of my top ten favorite Marvel superheroes in my very first review. I am going to show you my top ten DC superheroes list, now:

1) Batman
2)Dick Grayson (doesn't have to be Nightwing)
3) Hal Jordan
4) Zatanna
5) Black Canary
6) Huntress
7) Robin: Damian Wayne
8) Guy Gardiner
9) Star Girl
10) Swamp Thing

   Notice a pattern there? Yeah, I have a thing for people from Gotham. Patrick Gleason takes Damian far out of Gotham for this book, as he goes through his "Year of Blood", a self imposed year of penance, making up for his past crimes. It is pretty fantastic stuff, quite adult and deep for a character that is probably about twelve years old, at this point. The characters I listed above have gone through some major changes, during the New 52. In the case of Zatanna, Huntress, and Black Canary, these changes were not for the better, and luckily talented writers were able to return these characters to their glory, during DC Rebirth.
    Damian, however, has stayed consistently great, whether he is in the hands of Grant Morrison, Peter J. Tomasi or Patrick Gleason. I give this a four out of five stars, a "Really liked it" on Goodreads.com.

6/27/2018 - Let's just get into this!

Welcome…. why are you here?    There are three things that I am going to talk about, in this safe little blog space. It is the perfect little digital coffee shop (minus the coffee) where we can have an actual discussion. Please, leave as many comments as you like. We can go back and forth. I would much rather take the time to talk to you, in my little digital domain, than go back and forth on Twitter or Facebook.    Wouldn’t it be amazing, if somehow some milk-like cortical fluid dripped out of my brain and passed through my hands, into the part of your brain that goes “Hey, this is something that will affect you today?” It probably won’t happen, but if you ever do share one of these posts with another person, well, then I think that might the the greatest thing that could happen to me.     Hey, let’s get to those three things: I will review comic book trades and novels . I call them comic book trades, not graphic novels. None of that pretentious shit here, in my

FEMALE MAIN CHARACTERS FROM THE BALANCING ACT UNIVERSE

  You came back! Oh Man, are you awesome! Speaking of backs, I have pulled a muscle in mine. All day I have been walking around like poor Tobey up there. That is not going to stop me from delivering on my promise! In our last newsletter, I mentioned that I would provide you with a break down of all of the recent videos from each of my three channels. That will always be a given with this newsletter. I also said I would share a few of my favorite female main characters from my universe with you. This is all in anticipation for the first piece of fiction I will be sharing with you, on February 4th! Ok, so as the pain meds kick in, let’s talk about the shows that came out this week: Shari T and I were very sad to say goodbye to our recent favorite show -  YELLOWJACKETS. I had suspected that covering  YELLOWJACKETS  would stir up interest in the  ANCHORPETE  channel, but I didn’t realize how active our community would become! As we went from Episode One all the way to the Season Finale, at
