LOOTCRATE SEPTEMBER: SPEED

Posted 9/21/2016

It's LOOTCRATE time.  The these this month was SPEED!  This is what came:

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This exclusive Flash hood ornament is SWEEEEEET, but I'm not sure I want to stick it on my Jeep.  I totally WOULD, I just don't want to risk losing it.  So I put it on my file cabinet instead.  For now.

Next up, an exclusive Battlestar Galactica "scar" vinyl replica.  This goes well with the Futurama ship I got a few months ago.

The T-shirt this month is an exclusive Stark Industries Racing Tee, which I'll be wearing tomorrow.

The exclusive Batwing keychain is a troublesome item because most Batman things go directly to my son.  But I really like this ...  

Finally, the Gone In 60 Seconds "Eleanor" die-cast car is cool, but I'm not sure yet what to do with it.

And Loot Crate is really going out of their way with the boxes lately.  Last month's box turned into Harley Quinn's mallet while this month it truly is a transformer, becoming this race car.  It's ugly as hell, but still pretty cool.

CURRENTLY READING: BLACK SCIENCE, Vol. 1: How to Fall Forever

Posted 9/14/2016

BLACK SCIENCE, Vol. 1: How to Fall Forever

 “A must-read for Remender's fans or anyone thrilled by bizarre and compelling sci-fi.” Starred Review -Booklist

There is a lot of meat to this book. Plenty for everyone to like, or dislike. The dangers are real. People die. The worldbuilding is solid even though we're jumping through different realities. Each of those worlds pops off the page and has their own distinct look and feel.” - Kirkus

“This is a solid adventure tale...” - PW

Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, has finally done the impossible: He has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But what lies beyond the veil is not epiphany, but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the long-forgotten, ancient, and unimaginable dark realms. The only way is forward, through the madness of the lightning sea-swamp and a futurepast trenchworld, where the Sons of the Wakan Tech-Tanka wage never-ending war on the savages of Europe! How did the Anarchist League of Scientists end up this deep in the onion? And, who among them sabotaged the Pillar?

CURRENTLY READING: BITCH PLANET, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine

Posted 9/9/2016

 “...one of the most unique and subversive artifacts of pop culture in recent memory.” - Salon.com

"Seldom do comics burst onto the scene and shatter our worldview by being entirely poignant, raw, and captivating - but then, most comics aren't Bitch Panet." - Entertainment Weekly

Eisner Award-nominated writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty DeadlyCaptain Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of Bitch Planet, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation. 

In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman's failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?

CURRENTLY READING: DEADLY CLASS Vol. 1: Reagan Youth

Posted 9/6/2016

I bought this for my daughter last week, but she's not going to read it yet.  So I am:

Deadly Class is a solid read for those who want a combination of Mark Millar's Wanted and Harry Potter with Garth Ennis's (Preacher) style.” - Library Journal (Starred)

“A good start to a wicked series.” -- Booklist

It's 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can't focus in class. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin's top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he's failing is "Dismemberment 101," and his crush has a double-digit body count. Welcome to the most brutal high school on earth, where the world's top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At Kings Dominion School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn't always metaphorical.

Collecting the first arc of the most critically acclaimed new series of 2014, by writer Rick Remender (Black ScienceFear Agent) and rising star artist Wesley Craig (Batman).

New Post Title

Posted 9/4/2016

The August 2016 Marvel Collector Corps. box came the other day.  Not the most impressive collection, but it'll do until the next box, which I'm very excited for.  Next time it's Doctor Strange.  This month was Spider-Man, but as a LONG time reader of comics, believe me, I have plenty of Spider-Man things.  But still, I'll take it.  Here's the haul:

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Everything from the Pop figure to the plush, to the hat, was powered by Funko this month.  I also got issue #16 of the Spider-Man comic, and of course the usual pin and patch.  I'm probably happiest about those two things because they join the pins and patches from the previous boxes on my desk.  My daughter has the hat, but really it wasn't like either of us were going to wear it.  If either of my sons were still at home, I'd have probably given it to one of them.  Still haven't figured out what to do with that plush.  I may give it to one of my grandsons.  We'll see.  I do have a plush Deadpool as well from an earlier box.  Hmm....
