10/29/2018 - Trade Review - Spider-Women


Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Who is the greatest Spider-Woman of them all?

It's ok, you know the answer - It's Silk.

What?????

You were expecting Jessica Drew, right? I am going to have to side with the host of Aurum's comics ( I can't remember his name, at this moment. For the longest time I thought it was Aurum). He believes that Jessica should be disconnected to all of the Peter Parker Spider-Mythos stuff, and have a new, non-Spider-Woman name.

    Her origins have nothing to do with Peter Parker, which is the exact opposite of the other two Spider-ladies in this book - Silk and Spider-Gwen. Silk was bitten by the same Spider that bit Peter Parker, and Spider-Gwen is the Spider-Woman from another reality, where the radioactive Spider bit Gwen Stacey, instead of Peter Parker.

    If I could rank the current adventures of each of these Spider-Women, it would go as follows:

  Silk
  Spider-Woman
    Spider-Gwen

What this book does a great job with is capture the distinctive voice of each of these three heroines. This book also does a fantastic job of drawing in all of the zaniness that fills up Spider-Gwen's world and ties it in with Silk's personal life. The art shifts dramatically from book to book, with each issue either being enjoyable to flip through or filled with cringe inducing character design. I love two out of three of these characters, so this book was at least three out of five stars for me, on goodreads.

7/16/2020 - MULHOLLAND DRIVE REVIEW

You can read this review, or watch my video presentation on it, right here: I should warn you, this review is more about my thoughts on David Lynch, and how I felt watching Mulholland Drive than it is about the actual plot of Mulholland Drive .    I knew that when I was going to start viewing and reviewing the movies of David Lynch I would be put into an uncomfortable position.  When I review a piece of media, I focus on the story.  If the story is a mystery, I rate the movie on how consumed I feel when trying to solve that mystery,  and if I think the answer to the mystery was satisfying. Were there clues pointing towards the answer, throughout the entire, comic, novel,TV show or movie? Then there are the questions I ask, regardless of the type of story. Questions like,were the characters well defined and unique? Would I want to spend more time with those characters if I had the chance? Would I want to spend more time in that world, if there was a

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
