Blind Bag Book Bonanza, Part 2

The funny thing about our trip to Ollie’s was that we bought more than one blind bag of comics, so naturally we had to do a followup to our previous endeavor. This one’s better.

Blind Bag Book Bonanza, Part 1

One rainy day we decided to pick up a couple of comic book blind bags. Let’s see what treasures are in store for us!

RBX Preview – Gs, Issue 1: Guess Who

Frank previews what happens when Soul Calibur meets a gallon of ketchup.

Seconds – A Review

The big man in hipsteresque indie comics is back on the scene. Bryan Lee O’Malley’s “Seconds” is a follow-up to the award winning Scott Pilgrim series. But is it truly something to be hype about?

Punisher Week Finale – Archie Meets The Punisher

The Punisher Meets Archie. Some consider it a right of passage for internet reviewers. It’s old and well-worn territory, but like an aging prostitute, it still has more than it’s share of tricks.

Punisher Week – First Impressions of the Punisher

“You got somethin’ to say, say it! I’m missin’ General Hospital!”

Punisher Week – Eminem Vs. The Punisher

This comic is fucking duuuuuuumb.

Punisher Week – Manga Punisher

“All this book has managed to do is reinforce my lack of faith in the anime fandom, and humanity at large. Which is totally what I needed. What’s next on the docket, huh, Mr. Castle? What else do you have to throw at me? Let’s at least make it something vaguely competent this time.”

Punisher Week – A Man Named Frank

Sombrero Guy explains to Enchilada and Smokey that the diamonds they found were actually rock candy, meaning that Frank’s family was murdered for something that can be purchased for a buck fifty at Walmart.

Review – Sharknife: Stage First
