A short one today, but one that follows up on last week's skit, "Just waiting in a friend."
You know? That's the one where Animal Man was waiting on his buddy B'wana Beast to show up.
Well he did. And not exactly in the best of shape either.
Say it, don't spray it, right? Poor B'wana Beast:(
On a more positive note, last week I stumbled upon a new comic book store that opened up right next to a favorite Mexican restaurant of mine. It had been open for two week at the time, and I was just fucking ecstatic No really!
There hasn't been a comic book store in town for the last 4 years, so to see this, blew my mind.
It's called Nuklear Comics, and it's run by a very nice war veteran named Barry.
His main goal was to have a comic book store that was kid-friendly and open to everyone. And so far, that's what I've seen. Because you know, some comic book stores, the guys behind the counter can be complete dicks or snobs, and no one enjoys having to put up with that; especially not during these tough times in the industry that's trying to lure in new and young readers. So this guy's a very refreshing breath of fresh air, and I hope he stays in business a looooong time:)
So, naturally I bought a few things:)
Well not a few, but a lot really, and true to form, mostly figures(but some comics too)
I bought Jonah Hex(loose, but w/all his guns), Modern Booster Gold(Loose w/o Skeets), Mr. Miracle(loose), BL Hal Jordan, and the new(at the time) Brightest Day Green Arrow, who's looking very pimp I might add. He's what the current TV version of him should look like, so expect him to show up in future skits. Well all of them really, as the ideas are just swirling around in my head already.
Oh, and I also bought the the 1st Marvel Legends Beast figure. I was surprised that he doesn't have an ab-crunch, but everywhere else he's articulated out the ass. Oh and his mouth/jaw moves up and down, so you can actually pretend he's talking to you. You know, if you're into having pretend conversations with an action figure;)
Have a good one people.....
