Nerdtacular II: The Dark Knight! Check out my fat face in this diary entry. [quicktime]http://www.majorspoilers.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07a/nerdtaculardiary1.mov[/quicktime] I’ve got my HD camera with me today, and I plan on capturing a lot of the festivities, we’ll see if I get around to posting that video – I promise I won’t be in it the next time (wink).

Contact Stephen Schleicher and we’ll get them up for all to see. via Action Figure Insider

It is surprising that there are not more stories that focus on the celebrity aspect of superheroes and the lengths those heroes will go through to keep their private life separate from their hero identity. Fortunately, Noble Causes from
“I think the garbage cans and toilet brush are a nice touch…” After the bad experience I had with Jenna Jamesonâ€™s Shadow Hunter, I was a little hesitant to review yet another new title from Virgin Comics. But not everything from Virgin is bad. The companyâ€™s Dan Dare series is actually quite good. So with two titles on opposite ends of the spectrum weighing in, I sat down to read The Megas by Jonathan Mostow and John Harrison, wondering where it would fall on the scale of good to bad.
How Blue-Devil Got His Groove Back Only two issues to go before Shadowpact closes up shop, and there are a lot of open story lines that need wrapping. Fortunately Matthew Sturges answers one, and sets readers up for a smack down of godly proportions in The Burning Age, the first installment of a three part arc from DC Comics.
