The Antihero

I’ve always loved the antihero character archetype. To me, the least interesting character has always been the main hero, the good guy, the knight in shining armor. All too often the good guy is the same basic formula; A naive individual called upon to take up a weapon (either literal or metaphorical) and go on a quest to vanquish evil. Throughout this quest s/he … Read More The Antihero

Custom Action Figures

I want to talk a little bit about action figures once more as I’m an avid collector of them. They’re fun to display, fun to collect, and certainly fun to play with your kids with… unless they’re the $30+ ones with fragile parts… then yeah, just the first two! But what about characters that don’t have action figures, either because they’re just not popular … Read More Custom Action Figures

Death’s Work-Around

Hello Writers, Did you recently kill off a character? Do you regret it? Do you want to get that character back but are too good to simply resurrect the character? Well we’ve got a lesser known, yet equally cheap gimmick for you; take the character from another reality! At the low cost of your writing credibility, you can have you character back without any … Read More Death’s Work-Around

WandaVision… What the Hell??? #Marvel #Avengers #Wandavision

So… I just watched Wandavision… and I was going to review it for everyone, but… … … … Nope, I can’t decide on a response… so… here are my top ten responses: 10. “WTF did I just watch?” 9. “Was any of this in the comics?” 8. “I am so confused.” 7. “Someone liked Bewitched WAAAAY too much!” 6. “Okay, who’s trolling me? Where’s … Read More WandaVision… What the Hell??? #Marvel #Avengers #Wandavision

Unpopular Opinion: The Phantom Menace Wasn’t A Bad Movie

  Shaddap! Okay we all remember Episode 1 being the most anticipated movie in almost all of history. Fans were nuts! Action figures literally flew off of the shelves (I think I still have a few) and people were ready for Star Wars fever. We’ve been without a new movie for over a decade and were itching for this. What we got… did not … Read More Unpopular Opinion: The Phantom Menace Wasn’t A Bad Movie

Unpopular Opinion: Bakshi did it better!

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know how I feel about things like preaching in your story, out of context political diatribe, breaking the 4th well, inappropriately clashing reality with fantasy, and so on. Well… today I wanted to touch on a subject that I think is getting constantly […]

The Love/Hate with Relationship Writing

There seems to be a trend that is pretty well-established in Hollywood, but unfortunately has also inked its way into literature and other various art forms as well, and its one I do not like nor do I think its effects are positive. What do I mean by that? Well let’s think about this for a moment; Name one TV show in recent memory … Read More The Love/Hate with Relationship Writing

The Double Standard of Art

There seems to be a trend that is pretty well-established in Hollywood, but unfortunately has also inked its way into literature and other various art forms as well, and its one I do not like nor do I think its effects are positive. What do I mean by that? Well let’s think about this for […]

Prequelitis

I think I can speak for everyone here when I say that we’re all pretty tired of prequels am I right? Earlier in the week I heard through the grapevine that Game of Thrones was going to have a couple of spinoff series dealing with events that happened before the events we all know and love. The response I’ve heard; A collective groan. Of … Read More Prequelitis

Action Figure Review: The Good, The Bad…

So I recently got my hands on a pair of action figures that I was really excited to get. The first one was the Toys R Us limited Edition Black Series Rey. I wasn’t planning on purchasing this one as I got the standard version of this figure… but when Toys R Us going out of business, I got it for $8. and honestly, … Read More Action Figure Review: The Good, The Bad…

Action Figure Collection Woes >:(

  So as most everyone knows… I’m huge into action figure collecting. There are two big ones I’m waiting for. The first and perhaps most important is a commissioned one-of-a-kind action figure. See I love Skyrim… but let’s face it, the figures that came out from the game kinda sucked! All they had was a Daedric lord and a fairly generic Dragonborn. Yeah sign me … Read More Action Figure Collection Woes 😡

Comic Collecting…

  So for the longest time now, my comic book collecting has been fairly minimal. Since I cancelled all of my Marvel pulls and have restricted myself to Teen Titans, Lady Mechanika and a few indie titles, my monthly box at The Hall of Comics has been kind of bare. That being said, every now and then, I do get a diamond or two… … Read More Comic Collecting…
