(This was a try out piece from months ago. I didn’t get anywhere with it but I put some effort into the piece and I would like to put it out there.)
Thirty years ago the world changed when the first Ghostbusters movie was unleashed upon the world. While there were only four paranormal heroes in the movie an entire generation grew up knowing that busting makes them feel good. Now, as the frights of Autumn 2014 are upon us Funko Pop! is poised to roll out an exclusive this October that will have Ghostbusters fans pulling out money faster than ghosts escaping the containment unit.
Toy Tokyo is releasing a slimed version of the Ecto-1 vehicle complete with Egon Spengler. Even better, this toy is rumored to be New York Comic Con exclusive. The strategically placed slime causes Ecto-1 to look like its been through a struggle more difficult then bringing Ghostbusters 3 to film. Egon drives the much detailed Ecto-1 and Dr Spengler appears to have been through hell himself. Despite that the Funko Pop! artists have still managed to catch the stony face of Harold Ramis’s performance that we all love and miss.
Stay tuned to PopVinyl.Net for more news and updates on the Ecto-1 plus many more exciting announcements.
FATHOM: KIANI vol 4 #1
See the hottest feuds and hardest hits of our WOW Superheroes! Coming February 1st the Flashback series that will introduce you to the world of WOW Women of Wrestling.
From Drunken Cat Comics, Derek Baxter, Brian Canini.
That is where this book starts getting bizarre, then funny, then weird, and then hysterical. So funny you’ll want to finish it and then go back to the beginning because by now you’re laughing so hard the first part of the book is going to be that much funnier to read the second time around.
This is the final post reviewing Drunken Cat Comics (for now). This independent comic company has a middle finger on the pulse of all that is funny.
The concept of Never Stop Drinking is that our good friends at Drunken Cat Comics collected all the silly doodles that the Drunken Cat himself scrawled on napkins in every bar he stumbled into from coast to coast. Let me tell you, the Drunken Cat is a sick freak. But he’s a damn funny freak. These are quick one page gags. Far Side with no filter. The humor is from the farthest side you can find. I dare say, its from the underside.
The art fits the concept. It seems rough at first but is actually incredibly well thought through to guarantee every line and dot helps the joke. Observations, social commentary, and pop culture pokes abound. Here’s a tease:
Its wrong. Its so very wrong. And I cant stop laughing. I read the joke twice and laughed each time. I took a picture and laughed. I laughed again when I attached it for this article. This is just one page in the book! One page and I’m losing it 4, make that 5 times. Guaranteed laughs for your buck.
If you would like to order Never Stop Drinking it can be found at the Drunken Cat Comics site.
Just in case you’re not sure I have one more picture for you. Yup, still funny.
I would buy this on a t-shirt without even thinking.
For those of you who may not know, I’m doing 365 days of shirts in 2015. Mostly t-shirts but I’ve already worn one long sleeve and I’m sure through the year there will be some other oddities.
If you want to see them all make sure to follow me on Instagram. http://instagram.com/kevinhellions/
Now, most regular readers know all of this already. The reason for tonight’s post is that I’m getting more shirts! Yes, only 25 days in and doubt had already started. Do I have enough shirts? Can I pull this off?
Then out of no where I get a Facebook message offering more shirts. Of course I jumped on it and hopefully will pick them up later this week.
This excites me to no end. I would like more of this. So if anyone has some t-shirts they don’t want or would like me to promote their product across social media please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work out the details.
This short post brought to you by the Royal Rumble.
So no one signed up for the prediction contest. Too late now. Ah well. Maybe I’ll try again later on. Anyways, lets see who I think will win and why.
(Winners in bold.)
The Ascension vs. The New Age Outlaws.
The Ascension really has to win here. There is a lot of potential in this team and they were great in NXT. Is this another example of Vince McMahon not understanding an NXT gimmick and burying it when the guys get to the main roster? I love the big beat everyone up nothing pretty about what we do tag teams. Give these guys a chance and give them a dominant win here.
Paige and Natalya vs. The Bella Twins.
You have to wonder where this will go next. We already saw the Bellas feud. Nikki is still the Divas champ. I see either Paige or Natalya hitting a finishing move and the other one making the blind tag to claim victory. Both women have a case for beating the champ. Three way match in the future to decide it.
The Usos vs. Miz and Damien Mizdow.
I mean we all expect Miz and Mizdow to split and then have a great WrestleMania match right? There is just no other possibility here.
The New Day vs The Masters of the WWE Universe and Adam Rose.
I really want The New Day to be something but it hasn’t happened yet. Kidd and Cesaro are the latest in a line of thrown together singles stars who click. Adam Rose is just here. Kidd and Cesaro will be tag team of the year by the time 2015 is over. It starts here.
Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena vs. Seth Rollins.
After beating the Undertaker and destroying John Cena I think the better more dramatic story is for Brock to dominate this match and look strong going into WrestleMania. Thus making whoever defeats him at the biggest show of the year look that much better. He (whoever that is) will do what no one else in a year was able to do. Defeat the Beast. But to have that moment, Brock needs to win this match.
The Royal Rumble.
Its down to Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler. I think Ziggler will be the star of the summer and I predict him to win Money in the Bank, thus getting his biggest underdog tale to date. I went into my feelings in a previous post. I think WWE would be risking too much giving this to Daniel Bryan. His injury could happen again. If anything gets aggravated then the main event at WrestleMania is in limbo. Maybe Roman isn’t ready right now. But he could be ready by ‘Mania. Its sink or swim time for him, but first he has to be given the opportunity to try.
Combining everything you love, WOW Superheroes will be unleashed on February 1st.
The Women of Wrestling Superheroes don’t combat in Metropolis or Gotham City. No, they take it inside the squared circle. For those of you who love wrestling, comic books, and athletic women. For those of you who miss watching GLOW every weekend. WOW Superheroes is here for you.
Truth, Justice and the Bodyslamming way.
All tights. All fights.
