Proof of Life..err, Time

Proof of Life..err, Time

Wait, you mean when you start a blog, you have to keep posting things occasionally?   Why does no one tell me these things? Hey everybody!   Been lots of dead air around the Sideshow lately, I’ll blame it on the holidays that are slowly creeping ever closer and trying to get things done before we finally escape 2016.   But speaking of slowly creeping, I wanted to update everybody on how my path to the runDisney Dark Side Challenge was…

Con Tour: Scifi/Fantasy Fest (Hoover, AL)

Con Tour: Scifi/Fantasy Fest (Hoover, AL)

I’ve mentioned before how much I love public libraries, and how lucky my area is to have a really kicking library system.   Well, guess what, I get to brag a little bit more today!   This past weekend was the 2nd annual SciFi/Fantasy Fest at the Hoover Public Library in Hoover, Alabama, and good times were had! The more conventions I go to, the more love I have for the smaller, community organized events like the SciFi/Fantasy Fest. They…

A Hero’s Labors: Dan Abnett’s Hercules Reviewed

A Hero’s Labors: Dan Abnett’s Hercules Reviewed

When people think of mythological Marvel characters, Thor or Loki usually top out the list, along with a slew of their Asgardian kin.   Eventually people might remember there’s another (demi-)god on the Avengers roster, but Hercules has never gotten as much love as his hammer swinging rival.   Hercules has fronted his own title a couple of times, and even been in the middle of a big event if you remember the Chaos War story, but his books have…

Stuff went Boom – Big Week in Comics

Stuff went Boom – Big Week in Comics

  It’s been a hell of a week for comics, man.   Comic books sale numbers for August came out, and DC is freaking killing it with all of their titles since Rebirth.  Not only that, but comic sales in general are at levels that haven’t been seen since the bubble burst back in the 90’s. GHOST RIDER Agents of SHIELD returned to television this past Tuesday, with the much hyped Ghost Rider debuting in the first episode.   And…

Would You Like To Play A Game? : The Tomorrow Children

Would You Like To Play A Game? : The Tomorrow Children

For years, I managed to avoid the sand box games like Minecraft, with their blocky worlds to explore and build.   But when I got an email in my inbox about early access to The Tomorrow Children, I was intrigued.  Like a lot of people growing up in the 80’s, I’ve got a certain obsession with the so-called evil empire of the Soviet Union.  One of my earliest RPGs was this Red Dawn-esque game called Price of Freedom, where the…

Nothing to see here, folks

Nothing to see here, folks

Hey all, just wanted to drop a quick note that we won’t have any posts this week, because of freaking Dragoncon prep!!   The wife is planning and packing, booze has been acquired (I’m a cider fan myself discovered a really cool local brew store with a ton of new ciders, including stuff on top, but that’s a post unto itself), got my Ghost Rider costume packed up, and now we just have to manage to get everything in the…

ROM #2 – The Review

ROM #2 – The Review

So I’ve been slacking lately when it comes to reporting on comics..and it’s not because I haven’t been reading…heck, if anything I’ve been reading too much!   But it’s hard to find time to really do more than just rattle off a bunch of titles, so I’ve been lazy on my weekly pull list posts.    But there was no way I was going to let a new issue of ROM come out without sparing a few words.  Consider this…

Pull List – 8-10-16

Pull List – 8-10-16

Hey hey, only one day late! Man, my comic book stack keeps getting bigger every week it feels like, lots of new stuff coming out, along with a stream of Rebirth #1’s that just don’t seem to ever quit. This week, I’ve narrowed it down to talking about my top 5 books from the pull.    DC took 3 slots, Dark Horse snagged another, leaving Marvel with just 1.   (To be fair, Marvel Unlimited has really put a cramp…
