the Xeno books

I visited Time Warp Comics today, and showed the owner (and long time friend) an issue of Xenorama.  He hadn't seen any and didn't even know about them.  He asked me if I had been promoting it.  Apparently I need to do that more often, especially since I have three issues of Xenorama and two side projects published.  I think they would do well in comic book stores, so I told him I'd do some more advertising and here we are.  I'm working on issue #18 as we speak which will feature all sorts of cool stuff, including Marvel's great Godzilla series from the 70s.

How's that for a teaser?

So much Batman

I have so many Batman DVDs. More than any other superhero. I find that surprising.  I know it's due to Batman being everywhere these days, and knowing everything, akin to the 60s Superman Supreme.  He's just a boring asshat now, except for maybe the 60s based comic book that is being published.  I hope to have more on that later.  Two of my top five posts here are about Batman.  It used to be three, but inexplicably the Sky Captain post seems to have more fans than I thought were possible.

Midnight Express vs Road Warriors July 1986

I have never seen this match. The most famous match between these teams is the scaffold match, and I also really like their match at the second (I think) Crockett Cup. This one has Dennis and Bobby as the Midnights, and of course, the great Jim Cornette. This had to happen before the Skywalkers match, so I'm happy to see it.

World's Finest

 It was pretty inevitable.  Once WB started the excellent Superman cartoon, having him meet Batman was just going to happen.  So they had a three part episode/movie.  The commentary doesn't remember quite if it was released in prime time as a movie, but it was released on DVD as one.  By the way, as always, the commentary on this episode is really fun.  I wish they could have done more commentaries, which is something I rarely say.  I usually want  a doc about the movie.  End digression.  Naturally Bruce Timm took the name of the three parter from the long running comic book (back when Clark and Bruce were best friends) and it does fit the scope of the movie.  It's odd, they act like they are the only heroes on the Earth, though by now we know there are plenty more.

cool 70s Godzilla book (in Japanese)

August reported on this way cool looking book a while ago.  It covers all the 70s Godzilla movies (and it appears one 60s movie and Yog as well).  I'm sure it has loads of cool pictures from all the movies I grew up loving and seeing in the theaters.  I'd love to own this, but I really would love to see all of it translated into English.  Wouldn't that be great?  I mean, the cover alone is great.

Bob and Doug Sing 12 Days of Christmas

Good day and welcome to the blog. Today's topic is Christmas and what is the best song. I believe this one is, eh. This is a very cute animated (sorta) version of the boys singing 12 Days from the album, eh. It was released almost 35 years ago- that's a long time for some hosers- but has been a classic since then. Right up there with Stairway to Heaven, eh.
