    Batman #45-47: Hmm. I think I might take your advice and pair this with Action Comics for a review. In truth, I think I enjoyed Action more than this. These issues were the same dialogue repeated over and over and over again. Also: "Meow." STOP IT!

    I might have to do that, as my plans fell apart when the Captain America issues turned out to be so-so.

    Captain America #695-704: Mark Waid's third shot at Captain America (if you don't count Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty) is mixed. While the series opens strong -- with a post-Secret Empire Steve Rogers searching America for himself -- it quickly jumps away from that for two stories set in the future. One is 2025, the other is in the 24th century. The first focuses on Cap fighting Nazis and a king, the second is about his great-great-great grandson and his attempt to save his child. Because neither is grounded in the here and now, and because we don't really get to know any of the characters surrounding our leads, nothing feels weighty. Chris Samnee brings so much life and action and power to issues #695-700, but then he moves on. Honestly, read the first two issues then move on as well. Nothing here is bad, but it isn't even interesting.

    Suggestion: Maybe cover it in conjunction with Batman #45-47.

    Weird Dreams

    I had a dream the other night where I saw/experienced the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which turned to involve Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones chasing a baby raptor through a giant old university or museum in Dublin/London/some dreary European city in winter for two hours. It featured Crook and Jones because I've been doing a rewatch of Detectorists lately and since Jones is going to be in the next movie. For some reason, the raptor had bat wings but never flew and neither did the only other dinosaur in the dream (picture this one but pink with bat wings). Overall it was a strange mix being bizarre and dull and gave me a spark of optimism for Fallen Kingdom, which I don't expect to be good but which can't be worse than the dream I had about it.

    Brother and I weren't allowed to watch South Park, so when Channel 4 had an evening dedicated to it I crept downstairs at 9pm to push the 'Play' and 'Record' buttons on the VCR simultaneously to get 3 hours of content on a tape! This is why 'Not without my anus' ranks among my favourite episodes.

    Yeah, I'm thinking guys way north of 300 lb. Leans doesn't crack 300, but he's more along the lines of the WWF guys from the 80s/early 90s. The whole titans thing. He would be normal sized for that era.

    Earthquake taught my best friend's older brother math and PE in high school.

    Action Comics #992-998: This is an exceptionally interesting look at time travel within the DC Universe if you view this as a Booster Gold story. It being in Action Comics, it's a Superman story; as such, it reduces Superman to a whimpering child who's throwing a fit because he can't get his way. I have very mixed feelings about these issues. I might cover them on The Show to sort said feelings out.

    Death Wish (2018)

    I thought it was ok, but nothing special. He wasn't some trained ninja taking revenge. He got lucky most of the time and didn't know how to properly use a gun, so this was no Taken. Honestly the one thing I couldn't get past was Bruce Willis playing like the top surgeon in the city. I couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to buy that shit.

    If Brock Lesnar is in that category, he would surpass Vader. If you're only counting guys with Vader's body type, it's between him and Bam Bam.

    I remember being really ticked off when I missed the premiere of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine because it was delayed by over an hour by some sporting event. I had set my VCR to record it, and still missed it.

    Detective Comics #975: beautiful Doom Patrol/JLA Special #1: this whole event was garbage from the get-go and it only got worse. Holy shit. Embarrassing. GI Joe vs Six Million Dollar Man #1: Tried this on a whim and holy shit, it's good. SMD Man is captured by Cobra officers and Mindbenders gets to him. Cut to him attacking a plane where a team of Joes is escorting the three leaders of the North American countries to a conference. I'm psyched to read more. Imaginary Fiends #4: I'll be shocked if there's a better horror series this year. Invincible Iron Man #597: pretty solid. Justice League of America #25: going back to the world of The Extremists is the perfect way to get me back on side for the finale. Kiss vs Army of Darkness #1: oof...terrible. Legion #2: I get what they're doing, but it's just not clicking with me. I'm out. Lockjaw #1: dumb fun. Mera Queen of Atlantis #1: decent. I'll read another. Moon Knight #192: this is really good. Motherlands #2: this is too frenetic and goofy and feels like it would have been ahead of its time ten years ago. Now it's just rote. I'm out. Raven Daughter of Darkness #2: of...this is a snooze. I'm out Rick Veitch's The One #1: terrible. The Beef #1: I didn't really like this, but I'll try one more. It's weird enough to intrigue me. Suicide Squad #36: solid. The Demon Hell is Earth #4: still good. Comics: 682 Trades: 17 Graphic Novels: 8 Omnibus: 9

    Bam Bam is up there. I've always had a soft spot for Earthquake, but he couldn't move like Vader and Bigelow.

    I'm trying to think if there's ever been a better big man in the ring than Vader? Bam Bam Bigelow, maybe?

    I remember crying like a fucking baby when I discovered I wouldn't be home in time to watch wrestling on a Saturday when I had no warning to tape it beforehand. Fucking DEVASTATED.
