HEROES vs MILE HIGH :: SUPER BOWL 50 BID FOR CHARITY

February 05, 2016 By: Rico Renzi Category: Uncategorized

SuperBowl

Shelton has put together a fun and friendly wager with his pal Chuck Rozanski at Mile High Comics in Denver, CO. Since both our teams are playing in Super Bowl 50, we will both have auctions starting tonight and ending Monday with the losing city’s shop donating the proceeds to charity! We’re playing for Greg Olsen’s Heartest Yard and we’re auctioning off some very nice Deadpool books!

Both auctions start tonight and end Monday at 10PM Mountain Time. Check our Facebook and Twitter for direct links once the auctions are live!

We are putting up some key Deadpool issues with a bonus SuperPro Super Bowl Special!

STAFF PICKS :: WALT DISNEY DONALD DUCK DAILY NEWSPAPER COMICS HC VOL 01 :: SEPTEMBER 02, 2015

August 31, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: Uncategorized

staff_picks matt_staff_picksMATT’S PICK :: WALT DISNEY DONALD DUCK DAILY NEWSPAPER COMICS HC VOL 01: This is truly a glorious day for Donald Duck fans the world over! We FINALLY get to bask in the artistic glory of the finest duck artist who ever lived! And no, I am not talking about Carl Barks! Blasphemous, I’m sure, right? In my humble opinion, Donald (and his sadistic nephews) are best rendered by the great Al Taliferro. His ducks are more faithful to the animation model sheets than any other “duck artist’s” work. Furthermore, (I mention this often when praising Al’s version of the ducks) his duck drawings consistently have me laughing out loud at a mere glance of his character staging and attitude. He truly shines when he presents an exasperated or incredulous Donald meeting the reader’s gaze.

These gag strips are fun, quick reads. Nice for digest reading or a quick chuckle. In comparison, the duck strips are a departure from the long form/serialized strips featuring the mouse. I appreciate the work of Floyd Gottfredson – this is a whole different animal. As a reader with a very strong opinion on all things Disney, I can say without reservation: this volume is sure to delight! Also, as a fun side-note, it was Al who came up with the concept of “Unca Donald’s” troubled nephews for use as foils in this strip before they were featured in the animated shorts.

STAFF PICKS :: Giant Size Little Marvel A vs. X #1 :: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015

HEATHER’S PICK :: Giant Size Little Marvel A vs. X #1: Alright, Marvel, you’ve figured out another way to get me to read about this Battleworld place.  I adore Skottie Young’s covers so when I get a whole book filled with all this cuteness, I’m sold.  I can’t even decide who is the cutest! Maybe Beast because he looks like a little blue puppy? Although Magik is a sweet little butt kicker, too!
I’ll take this little piece of Battleworld and an Avengers versus X-Men street food battle! This is a great all ages take on the current Secret Wars event.  No prior knowledge needed!

Bonus Pick: Squirrel Girl #6: This book is at the top of my pile each week it is released.  I love this book! From the hilarious use of social media by its characters (@hulkysmashy, could it be any better?!?) to the tiny jokes at the bottom of the page (serious spit takes going on) to an amazingly relatable super hero (I want to hang out with Doreen), this book has won a hard fought battle to become my favorite comic.  That’s saying a lot for a character I had barely even heard of until recently.  Team Squirrel Girl, you are the best!
