Afronerd Radio Presents The Comic Shoppe!

And now, words of wisdom from The Comic Shoppe's Daryll B:

Howdy AfroNerd Readers... Due to Daryll B overloading on the Thor Movie, Fast Five, and Dylan Dog of Night, I'm reduced to linkblogging (with some snide comments thrown in of course.. even tired I can't remove my trademark snark!)

1) Yeah. To say I am disappointed in Smallville yet again is an understatement. The Smallvillains do a much more humorous job at ripping the penultimate episode from this past Friday. To sum up my anger in two words: Mechanical Starro:


2) I hope everyone got a chance to attend free comic book day on Saturday at their local shop. In case you missed it, Newsarama gives a pretty good rundown of the books given away:


and my one regret was I was I didn't get online to grab this free Adam Warrock song "Marvel vs DC"(no worries, it is on the next album!). However Comics Alliance has it playable here:


3) Chris Sims gives a playful retro look at THREE Jack Kirby versions of Thor:


4) To expound on our discussion of the "New" Ultimate Universe from last week's show, Andy Khouri gives detailed listing complete with interviews from Marvel editors and writers:


5) It Hollywood round up time an' how about Mark Sheppard? First Battlestar, then a nice little Doctor Who stint, and now Supernatural. Thank you Sir!:




7) *sniff* Monday is the finale for Stargate Universe and I am not happy. Graeme McMillian goes further an looks at the state of the WHOLE SyFy Channel... NOT good..and why I switching to BBC America for my science fiction fix


8) News isn't all bad in Hollywood for me however as Roc is being cast in Powers:


9) Tom Bondurant does a great framing of Flashpoint (starts this week) over at Robot 6 an then decides which books he's interested in:


10) Finally Chris Sims gives his stand up comedians as members of the JLA. No Chris Rock? No Charlie Murphy? No Lewis Black? Damn you Chris Sims....


Okies I am pretty sure we'll spend all of the show this week talking in Asgardian but....I hope everyone found something in this brief to peak their interest. I am also pretty sure that your local comic shop still has copies of the free comic book day stuff this week, so check them out.

(I recommend the Cap America/Thor by Landridge and Samnee, Darkwing Duck/ Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers combo, and the Bongo yearly FCBD Anthology. The Spider-Man by Slott and Ramos just missed my cut but was also fun).

So until next time AfroNerd Readers..Keep Fantasizing!

I'm still amazed Darkwing Duck and Rescue Rangers have been resummoned from the dead. AND in recognizable, non-rebooted form!!! When does that kind of thing ever happen? The cultural turnover rate is so fast now that anything older than five minutes is usually considered poison, no matter how much of a breadwinner it was.
