New Brighton Archeological Society

The Wheel of Morality will turn,turn,turn, and we’ll think of something funny to say about wherever it stops… theoretically, anyway. Johnny’s got his gun, and he’s lookin’ for Keanu. Bulletproof girls still like to play headgames. Plus: Is it #1 or #401? The Lion, the Witch, and the pyramids at Giza! And Rodrigo says It’s time to get things started… (Why won’t you get things started?) on the most sensational, inspirationational, spoiletational, majorational…

  1. Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo in NCIS) as Hal Jordan, it’s the only guy I see playing him, too bad Nathan Fillion is too old.

    Every comic book store I know has at least a small manga section and sells Magic, Yugioh and Pokemon cards. In fact here in Montreal one of the few places were you can get English manga is in a tiny comic book shop.

    Superwoman may still be kryptonian, she is seen saying her suit held up against the kryptonite blasts to some guy, he asked “what if it didn’t?” and she answers: “let hope we never find out” which means the blasts could have either killed her because she’s human (Daxamites wouldn’t have even felt it) or that she’s a Kryptonian after all. She’s working with general Lane because he knows who she is, which is big enough a secret to blackmail her into working (and killing) for him.

    P.S.- What’s with the blipping of curse words? Never had those before…

  2. I dread going to my LCS depending on who is there. Some people are okay, one guy is really nice, and there’s this one guy who is just a total douche. He always acts like I’m bothering him, and I guess I am interrupting his conversation and hang out time. But really, it’s gonna take 2 minutes to ring me up and he can get back to his gabbing. I go in and out as fast as I can because sometimes I am the girl that gets leered at. I know there is a great deal of elitism amongst some employees but a business is a business and in order to retain customers and profit, maybe they shouldn’t treat people like we’re all morons or annoyances. I’ve been in the corporate world for a number of years now and even if you don’t like someone, you have to be civil and respectful for the sake of the business.

    Anyway, thanks for touching on the subject. It’s something that bothers me to no end too.

  3. I would like to see Jensen Ackles from Supernatural as Hal Jordan I really like him in Supernatural and think he’d be good as Hal.

    My LCS Tim’s Corner in Rock Island, Il never made me feel like I was wasting his time and I was new to comics 2 years ago.

    Should I still be reading Superwoman or does it matter for the New Krypton story.
