    X-Men Blue #28, 29: this was good story-wise. Tough art. Too bad. Archie's Superteens vs Crusaders #1: fun. Batman #49: this was great. Great visual storytelling for two characters who don't move. Black Hammer Age of Doom #3: fucking great. Captain America #704: I wish they never did this run. How inconsequential was this bullshit? Especially after the future storyline they just came out of? Champions #21: more rough art here. Crude #3: ehh...this took a turn for the boring. Daredevil #604: this was awesome, especially for the random insertion of a millennia-old secret society to deus ex machina a boss fight. it worked. Evolution #7: I think this has run its course. Hunt for Wolverine Claws of a Killer #2: solid. Infidel #4: this was way better. I'll give it another issue. Infinity Countdown Black Widow #1 Infinity Countdown Champions #1: I'm not sure this needed to be a tie-in, but it was really good. A bit of a flashback to the Nova series. Justice League #2: this was not good. I'm out. Comics: 19 Trades: 1 Graphic Novels: Omnibus: 1

    Yeah, there's clearly a sand/rock dude, a water dude and a fire dude, ,and perhaps a wind lady.

    I think it's the Elementals instead.

    I haven't really listened to Buckethead since I did that weird experiment and really fucked my mental health up for a bit. I'll pass. Hahaha!

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    Powered through the rest of season one of NORSEMEN last night. Fuck I love this show. I avoided it for AGES as I thought it was just a lower budget version of Vikings, which is plodding at best. Had I known it was a comedy, I would have checked it out sooner.

    Limbo: I abandoned the monthlies in favour of the trade and then never got around to the trade. What a fun, visually striking book. A unique world with familiar mythologies. Beautiful colours. I wish there was more. The Punisher #226: God, this is fucking rad. Thor #1: This is great too. Looking forward to more. Titans Special #1: Kind of dug this, but then just not enough to follow up on it. Comics: 4 Trades: 1 Graphic Novels: Omnibus: 1

    The Death of Superman: this is the first in that series of trades that came out a couple years back detailing the whole era of Superman. Looking forward to reading more. Impressions of this one have me impressed for the most part. Forgot how much I missed the work on Jon Bogdanove and Louise Simonson on Superman. Good shit. Still not sure about the issue of splash pages. I get what they were going for, but it doesn't ring true to me. Comics: 1 Trades: Graphic Novels: Omnibus: 1

    My only issue with the film (ONLY issue) is that Apollo Creed, who by all accounts is retired, comes back to train Rocky. That's cool, but the marker by which they determine Rocky's readiness for Clubber Lang is beating an older guy in a race on the beach. It's a little weird, but it does lead to the greatest ocean hug in cinema history.

    It might be my favourite Rocky film so far. Talia Shire IS sexy in this one and not like a mousy second thought. Carl Weathers in 1982 is body goals and kicked off my recent workout frenzy. I don't do resolutions, but I do now. I want to bench 300 lbs by the end of this year and that's basically because of this movie.

    Brian Regan Nunchuks and Flamethrowers: performance films are documentaries on my count. Once upon a time, Brian Regan was the funniest man alive. I sat through half of this and decided to smoke a bowl, but, even then, only a couple belly laughs and the rest was peppered with a few chuckles. This was not up to snuff for him. Kind of sad, actually. Then I saw the trailer for his Netflix show and thought it was hilarious. What the fuck is going on? Features: 6 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 0

    Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell: review forthcoming The Night Comes For Us: I'll probably talk about this in action movie month, but holy shit. This was a gorier extension of The Raid. Man, those Indonesian martial arts films are sick to a degree that I am impressed. Features: 6 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 0 Rewatches: 0

    Rocky III: fuck this was fun. I don't want to be the "Rocky was the worst movie in the series" guy because I know I've seen Rocky V and it's garbage but this movie is fun as fuck. 1. Carl Weathers in 1982 is 100% body goals. 2. Burgess Meredith gives his best and final performance as Mickey. 3. Mr. T as Clubber Lang almost makes this a fucking monster movie, he's so badass. 4. Hulk Hogan's greatest wrestling match ever is in this movie and 5. Creed comes back as a force of brotherhood which is brilliant and only a little homoerotic.
