Get Fuzzy

Go and read as much as you can.  I think this is the best strip out there today.  Just click the pic to get to the site.

It’s Wednesday part 2

September 12, 2007

So after a long work day I finally got to get my books.  It was a huge week with lots to read.  I did get my hands on Booster Gold number 2 today and the more I read it the more it feels like Quantum Leap.  While Booster is no Sam Beckett, he is still the leaper of the book.  Describing this book make me think of this:

 “Booster finds himself trapped in the time stream, facing a life that was not his choice and driven by an unknown force and Rip Hunter to change history for the better. His only companion on this journey is Skeets, a robot encylpedia from his own time, who accoupanies from mission to mission. And so Booster finds himself leaping from time to time, striving to put right what went wrong with the time stream and hoping each time that his next leap will be the the chance to save Ted Kord.”

Booster just fits the role, with Skeets by his side as his Al and Rip Hunter his Gooshie.  I think this book has some great potential.  With a trip to the Old West to see Jonah Hex in issue 3 and what looks to be an adventure with the Flashes in issue 4 this book could be the breakout book for DC in 2007. 

It’s Wednesday!!!

September 12, 2007

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s comic day.  The day can never go by quick enough at work.  I think I’m finally caught up on my books after my Fables marathon this summer, and ready to try to get into the stories for this fall season.  I have to say though my favorite new book that I can’t wait to read each month is Booster Gold.  It reminds me of Quantum Leap, which is one of my all time favorite shows.  I can’t wait to see where it goes.  Check it out if you can. 


The Batman Sidekicks

April 3, 2007



After much searching for a Batgirl I finally have The Batman’s sidekicks.  I did not really get in to this line or the cartoon till this season.  I’m a sucker for a Dick Grayson figure and I had to have Babs if I had him so I grabbed them both.  The colors on each are clean and they really look nice on the bookcase.  I’m working on a custom Bats because these two are way out of scale with the other figures of the line.  While I think I may not buy anymore from this line I hear the JL are showing up next season so that may change. 


I’m Back

March 30, 2007

So, I have been gone for about 2 weeks and I’m getting a lot of support, thank you all.  We have had a few deaths in the family in the past few weeks and it has turned our lives upside down.  As things start to calm down I’m coming back to this blog.  Now the family issues are not the only reason I took time off.  The message boards have been a source of stress for me over the last few weeks, to the point that if I had to choose hunting for toys or going home, I went home.  I just wanted a break.  I have been working a lot on taking pictures and writing my ideas down some fun and some serious.  I have though long and hard and decided that if I want this blog to become my soap box, I have to voice my opinions even if others don’t’ agree with them.  After losing on Fwoosh and feeling alone on AFI I am coming back to talk about all that and toys of course.  So stay tuned it will be an interesting ride.
