Action Figure Collecting… #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

I want to take a few minutes to talk about action figures. For years now, I’ve been collecting Star Wars and Superhero figures. Usually I buy two of each; one in package, the other out to play with my boys with. That way I always have a collectible. Recently I’ve noticed something about action figures as they’ve been released. With the 3.75″ Star Wars … Read More Action Figure Collecting… #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

Basing Characters on Loved Ones #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

Writing characters based on loved ones is a mistake. A BIG mistake every time for a multitude of different reasons and it could not be any more clear why as with the recent Frank Cho vs. Robbi Rodriguez dispute. Allow me to explain, Robbi Rodriguez is one of the brilliant people who created the now-extremely-popular series Spider Gwen. Recently, a known comic artist, Frank … Read More Basing Characters on Loved Ones #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

White Widow, Initial Impressions #WhiteWidow #Comics #Superheroes #Indie

So I’ve recently picked up a new book that I just stumbled on at a comic auction for $8… and it was money well spent, but I’ll get into that. The book title is White Widow. The plot from the kick starter: Story Gabrielle Garcia was a typical American girl going to college to follow in her father’s footsteps – or so she thought. … Read More White Widow, Initial Impressions #WhiteWidow #Comics #Superheroes #Indie

Unpopular Opinion: Incredibles 2 wasn’t worth the wait. (Spoiler Free)

Yeah… this was a major let down. Oh, bring it on! I went to see it with my family the other night at a drive-in. My kids loved the original and watch it ad nauseam.  I admit it’s a fun movie and definitely an entertaining take on Superheroes. I actually got a laugh out of Samuel L. Jackson’s character when he’s arguing with his … Read More Unpopular Opinion: Incredibles 2 wasn’t worth the wait. (Spoiler Free)

Marvel Comics Endsong…

Perhaps it’s time for Marvel to consider ceasing production of its comics. I think we’ve gotten to that point. They’ve pretty much proven that they don’t know what they’re doing anymore or they’ve taken on the disastrous business model of trying to appeal to extreme political ideologues who are too busy being offended by things to read comics. I mean it’s bad enough that … Read More Marvel Comics Endsong…

Wonder Woman: A Fitting Tribute

So I just saw Wonder Woman… All right, let me start of by saying that I did not have high hopes for this movie… Hear me out! The initial reviews of this movie that I saw came from Salon and The Mary Sue… You know… these yellow journalists: Back off, men—they’re scientists: New “Ghostbusters” trailer gets slimed by sexist trolls The Ghostbusters Trailer Backlash Shows Men … Read More Wonder Woman: A Fitting Tribute

LOGAN: Wolverine 3

  Oh God… you know, I get the impression that I will not be leaving this theater with dry cheeks… On one hand, its because this is Hugh Jackman’s last appearance as Wolverine. That alone is enough to make a respectable fanboy cry. This is a rare form for an actor as he has faithfully portrayed the character and gave the role his all, … Read More LOGAN: Wolverine 3

Spider Gwen… is it good?

Let me just say that I had high hopes for this series. An alternate reality where Gwen gets bitten instead of Peter Parker. Peter dies and Gwen becomes spider… woman. The premise is great, the costume if awesome and the character is pretty good too. The end result is a series that literally flies off the shelves and rarer variants showing up on Ebay … Read More Spider Gwen… is it good?

Originally posted on James Harringtons Creative Work:
Hi All, Just wanted to give everyone a sample of my newest book: I “Nurse, what happened?” “I don’t know, Doctor. He just started convulsing. We were monitoring him after his skin became discolored, and then he flat-lined.” Corban McConnell felt his body slipping away and was powerless to stop it. He tried to scream, but Adramelech…
