A big Comic Book Nerd and Expert Dungeon Master! I love to help people and I write all of the time. From stories to articles I storm the internet with the vengeful wrath of one who actually enjoys life!

Dispite his history with the series (doing dubbing work for a few of the villains), it seemed odd to hear []

First Look: Review of @DarkHorseComics Black Hammer #1 by @JeffLemire

Legacy. Do you remember legacy? At one time, heroes had moved on, and certain protégés had taken their place. Comics were imensly concerned with the aging phsyce of heroes. We lost this quality for many years. Thankfully, that human element of “growing up and old” is returning to mainstream comics.

Tech Time: Google Changes Music Forever

Ever since I was a young lad, music has been a fun romp through realms of creative possibility.
