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!:
6) Neo as Kaneda....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
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!
