Back in the day, comics once instilled the woes of drug abuse into us to scare us away from even some of the legally recreational drugs out there. This isn't as much the case any more. Comicdom currently has its share of heroic drug offenders who depend as much on a fictional performance enhancer to get the job done. Others still demonstrate the debilitating effects of narcotics abuse to the previ... more.

There is a great deal of confusion among the “great unwashed” (non-geeks) regarding the distinction between dolls and action figures. I don’t have anything against dolls; they have a valid and venerable place in the play and collecting pantheon of toys. Dolls, however are not action figures. Dolls get dressed up and are used to role play situations boys and girls hope to engage in when... more.

I tend to be a bit fickle with in my fanboy sensibilities. I go for a depth of qualitity rather than breadth of quantity when enjoying my genre fiction, in whatever form. While I am always open to something new, I do hang on to my old favorites and often look for ways to enjoy them in new formats. In recent years, my television/movie watching and book reading time is at an absolute premieum... more.

Super hero movies: we all love them, we all watch 'em. However, there are some films out there either so awful, or so unsuccessful that they failed to so much as launch a sequel.
