Knowing Who You Are Is Half the Battle

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 6:02pm 10 Comments

I’m a big GI Joe fan.  I grew up playing with the action figures and watching the cartoon- complete with the moral at the end of the story “now you know… and knowing is half the battle.”  I wasn’t aware of the comics at the time or I would have immersed myself in them too.  I’ve also spent a lot more time thinking about GI Joe than is probably healthy for a grown man.

Dynamite Fizzles – Again

Going Solo

Posted on February 1, 2013 at 7:58pm 5 Comments

I’ve always been a team guy. Ever since my childhood love of the Uncanny X-Men and the New Teen Titans, I’ve been drawn to superhero teams. But lately, my interests have become decidedly solitary. More and more, I’m following solo stars.



It’s not like I’ve been averse to solo heroes in the past. I’ve always had a solo star or two on my radar, whether it was…
