Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars 47 (Guardians Of Knowhere Edition)

guardians_of_knowhere_1
With Secret Wars so delayed I thought I might actually get my write ups done before the event finished.  Well, I’ve got approximately 9 days to cover 39 issues.  Not impossible, but going to be tough.   After the break I’ll have a look at Guardians of Knowhere #1-4.  The Bendis/Deodato joint that essentially took the Guradians of the Galaxy shipping slot with the end of the universe.

Be sure to check out our latest Secret Wars Power Rankings, which also features links to the other parts of my read through.

Back in April, DC Comics and Mattel revealed the DC Super Hero Girls to the world. At the time, there was little information about the toy line beyond vague promises of figures, dolls, comics, books and clothing themed around DC’s strong lineup of female superheroes. Recently at New York Comic Con, the world got its first look at the toy line, including dolls based on Wonder WomanBatgirlHarley Quinn and more!

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Twenty

infinity-gauntlet-2

Much like my trip through DC’s Convergence, I’ve fallen woefully behind schedule.  At the very least I am caught up on reading everything.  Writing about them is another story.  I’ve also been pretty busy with our latest pet project: The Secret Wars Power Rankings.

After the break I’ll take a look at Infinity Gauntlet #2, Weirdworld #1, Weirdworld #2, Red Skull #1, Ultimate End #3 and very briefly touch on Giant Size Little Marvel AVX #1, Giant Size Little Marvel AVX #2 and Giant Size Little Marvel AVX #3.

Wacky Wednesday: Go Home Toy Industry, You’re Drunk!

sense-of-right-alliance

There is a serious injustice happening right now in the Toy industry. I’m not talking about how we’ve strayed from making toys indestructible (have you ever tried to break a Lincoln Log?), or how craftsmanship is a thing of the past. Nor am I talking about how most toys now-a-days have some kind of mechanical battery operated mechanism which leaves nothing left for imagination. No – the injustice I speak of is something that’s always been there, yet I’m so damn fed up with it – and that’s gederfication and blatant sexism in the toy industry.

Comic book superheroes die.  It happens.  Many get better.  A few stay dead.  And then there are the rare few who are almost designed to die and come back.

Once such character in that last category is Drax the Destroyer.

Joss Whedon Blames “Stupid People” For Genuine, Recalcitrant, Intractable Sexism In Comic Movies

We like Joss Whedon over here at Gabbing Geek. We like him because he’s given us some great movies and TV, and while we don’t expect him to slow down on that front, we especially like him since he spoke out about  the lack of female-led superhero films.
