STAFF PICKS :: WOMEN OF MARVEL STATUES :: OCTOBER 17, 2012

October 16, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

ANDY’S PICK(S):
I once informed my wife–aka¬†The Tower– that I would only ask for superhero statuary if the desired pieces were absolutely¬†indispensable…well,

 

Meet The Indispensable Wasp
and she’s rich, too!

 

The Necessary Marvel Girl
She knows–deep down– you need to have this statue

 

…and lastly, but not leastly, the Retro¬†Prerequisite¬†Black Cat
Hurry– she moving pretty fast.
My thanks to The Synonym Stick for suggestions and opinions and proposals
Remember, Christmas is right around the corner…I’m just sayin’

STAFF PICKS :: HAWKEYE #2 :: SEPTEMBER 05, 2012

September 04, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

HEATHER’S PICK :: HAWKEYE #2: I read Hawkeye #1 at Seth’s insistence and wasn’t really expecting to enjoy it.¬† My forays into the Avengers are generally short with rapid retreats.¬† Color me surprised to not only enjoy Hawkeye #1, but to add it to my reading list each month.¬† David Aja’s art is beautiful, especially his covers, and Matt Fraction is crafting an interesting story about Hawkeye that seems to paint him a little in the vein of a modern day Robin Hood.¬† The first issue also managed to spin off at least two twitter accounts with @PizzaDog and @LandlordBro.¬† This issue promises the return of Kate Bishop, who is apparently a fan favorite I will need to learn more about.
