Recently Read

Iron Angels by Eric Flint and Alister Kimble

It was OK. An FBI Agent investigates strange murders that lead to the discovery of two opposing cults and a portal to another universe. It is as well written any any thing Flint involves himself in but it never really grabbed me. I'm not saying don't read it. It just didn't work that well for me.

Comic Book Writers Plot to Harass Conservatives at ComicCon

I like comic books. I've been reading them since I learned to read. Adaptations of novels led me to real books. I'm sure many of the writers and artists I liked when I grew up were liberal and liberal themes made their way into the stories but not in the heavy handed way they seem to be popping up lately. AND I never heard of shit like this until recently.

So, to you artists and writers out there. YOUR job is to entertain me NOT preach to me. Shit like this only means I won't buy your product and I'm pretty sure when others take the same stance your employers won't be happy with the drop in sales. By the way, I'm fifty-seven years old. I'm one of those guys who have some disposable income to spend on things like comics. Can you say the same about SJW you seem to be aiming your product at now? I just went in to my local comic shop and dropped my pre-orders from about 25 comics a month to three. Think about it.

I Guess We Know Where Ryan and McConnel Stand on the Second

Ryan Blocking Concealed Carry Reciprocity, Congressman Tells Armed American Radio
The GOP talks big until they are in a position where they have to put up or shut up. Then it's crickets. The only difference between them and the Democrats is one of degree.

R. I. P. Len Wein

I can't say he was what I would call a favorite but the man paid his dues and in doing so co-created Wolverine, Swamp Thing, and The Human Target. He wrote Giant Size X-Men #1 that re-introduced the new team that included Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus. Those are his creations that I can remember off the cuff. I grew up reading the comics he wrote. He did good work.
