Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the White moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the White moderate, who is more devoted…

Yes, Donald Trump SHOULD Be President.

Don’t look at me like that! Let me explain! I know I don’t talk about politics all that much here, and the last time I did I predicted that Hillary Clinton would not pick a White male as her running mate. Which she ended up doing, so clearly I’m not all that great a political…

HALLOWEEN MAN #13

Written by Drew Edwards Edited by Russell Hillman Published by Sugar Skull Media PREVIOUSLY: HALLOWEEN MAN #12 It’s been a long wait since the last issue (and a longer than planned wait since this issue came out a week and a half ago for me to be reviewing it, sorry Drew), but fans of our…

POTENTIAL VEEPS

Save So, over the weekend, Donald Trump picked his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, who is extremely right-wing. I must say that I’m only slightly surprised. First, I knew that Trump was going to pick an established politician. Despite the caricature of Donald Trump, one thing he is not is stupid. So although his…

BOOK SNOBS part 2

PREVIOUSLY: BOOK SNOBS Please read the link, if you haven’t before, as it says all I really have to say on this topic of Book Snobs, which is what I call people who are serious readers and/or writers, that take a particular delight in mocking certain books and those who read them. Personally, I hate…

PROMPOSALS

Warning: Potential Grumpy Old Man Rant So a couple of weeks ago some teenage guy posted a question on the dating advice forum on Reddit. Honestly, I usually just avoid even answering questions from teenagers, sometimes it’s hard for me not to sound like a condescending adult (which I am), because they’ll act like everything…

Strange Fruit #3

Written by J.G. Jones and Mark Waid Drawn by J.G. Jones Published by Boom! Studios PREVIOUSLY: Strange Fruit #2 SIX MONTHS LATER, the third issue of this 4 issue miniseries has finally been published. I wish I could say that it was worth the wait but…well, that would be lying. Like I said last time,…

HUCK #6

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #5 I have to say that this has been one of Mark Millar’s most enjoyable recent projects. With some inventive use of Anna’s powers, Huck busts the two of them out of the Siberian prison, and then mother and son team…

Empress #1

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Stuart Immonen Publish by Icon/Marvel Comics Mark Millar returns to Marvel Comics for this new series, published under their creator-owned Icon Imprint. I must say that I had high hopes for this title up initially hearing about it. First, because of his collaborator and co-creator Stuart Immonen, whose work…

JACKED #6

Written by Eric Kripke Drawn by John Higgins Published by DC Comics/Vertigo PREVIOUSLY: JACKED #5 This is it, the final issue, and it goes out with a bang, although I don’t mean that literally (or do I?). Now, I can’t say too much, as I want to avoid major spoilers. But as per last issue’s…
