Fuck me, can't believe it's December already! I say this a lot, but seriously, where the hell does the time go? It seems the older I get, the faster time goes by, and I'm pretty sure it's not just me thinking that.
Maybe something like the Time Trapper(famous LoSH villain) really does exist, and that's where it all goes. You know like when you lose you the other half of your pair of socks, or underwear. It just goes somewhere....Weird.
Anyhoo, speaking of weird, today's skit's based off those old "Help me, I've been stuck in the body of a gorilla" stories that were a staple of comics in the 50's and 60's.
Yeah, you get the picture. Crazy times for sure right?
So without further ado, here's The Beast having some "Fun with humans".......
Funny guy that Beast is huh?
According to some comic news sources, like one of my faves, Bleedingcool.com, Our ol' boy Hank might not be too long for this mortal world, as he's rumored to be killed off by Bendis really soon. If so, this would be the second popular X-Men killed off in what, two months? WTF!?
I guess eventually, every comic character get their change to go through the revolving door of love and death in the comic world, but still, it just all seems pointless.
I think maybe, just maybe, the general idea might be to replace the current original 5 with their younger, time-trapped selves. An idea that's been percolating for a good while now, so who knows. I know with the new X-Men: Days of Future Past movie in the works, the X-Universe is going be seeing some interesting changes and activity for awhile, good and bad.
As always, we'll just have to wait and see.....
Oh, this weekend I went to local comic book shop(it's been so long since I've been able to say that:) and picked up some things.
You know, it's the line that pre-dated the current DCUC line of figures. So that was nice, plus the guy threw in a Tim Sale Robin figure for free. He looks okay, but really looks more like an Asian girl or Jubilee in a Robin costume w/ a bath towel for a cape:)
Then I had to do it. I didn't want to, but I had to. I bought the DCUC White Lantern Flash from the Nekron wave.I had to because for some weird reason I was strangely compelled to complete my Nekron figure, and he looked so sad and pitiful missing that left leg, so I bough white Barry(not Barry White;) and now he's complete.
He's not a bad figure per-say, but you can tell by the pictures, he's more gray than white. I refer to him as the "Ghost of Barry Allen", and that's probably how I'll use him in future skits.
As for the comic front, I almost bought the New X-Men issues featuring the younger originals, but passed, just like I did on the new Jason Arron Thor: God of Thunder series. It looks good, with great art and a compelling hook of telling 3 different Thor stories at the same time using the past, present, and future set-up, but I just passed on it anyways. Maybe I'll go back and get them, idk.
What I did buy though, was The Shadow#8 from Dynamite Comics, and Batman Inc.#5. Yes I know, I bought a Nu52 book again, but before you buy me a seat on the hypocrite express, this issue which follows the last one, features the conclusion to one of my favorite recent Morrison story plots, the logical conclusion to the Damien Batman future world. It wasn't bad, and ties in with what Batman's been worried about for awhile now; that if Damien becomes Batman, Gotham's fucked! And oh yes, it really is!
I also finally got to watch the movie Inception by recent Batman trilogy director Christopher Nolan, and I really enjoyed it. It's long as fuck though, clocking in at 3 hrs, 30-35 mins long, but worth every minute.
Oh, and Shlomo's already mentioned it, but I got to talk to him this weekend on the phone, thus putting a voice to the face. The dude's a trip, but I wouldn't have it any other way:)
So 2 down, 2 to go(Omega, Dan you guys are next;)
Have a good one people......
