REVIEW: Marvel’s Fear Itself #2

Posted by under *mixed, Comics | Join The Discussion |

Fear Itself #3 is in stores tomorrow and we’re spending the day catching up in preparation. Issue #1 was a strong introduction, but it seems that #2 may have faltered a bit. A lot seems to be happening around the world (and beyond) as the Norse God of Fear and the Red Skull’s daughter, Sin, put their plan into action. Unfortunately, the assembly of their champions, “The Worthy,” left us with a lot of mixed feelings.

Spoilers for the issue and series will follow.

REVIEW: Marvel’s Fear Itself #1

Posted by under *like, Comics | Join The Discussion |

We’re a bit behind in our discussion of Marvel’s Summer event book, Fear Itself, but with issue #3 shipping this Wednesday it’s time we caught up. With Thor and Captain America movies in theaters this Summer, it makes sense that Marvel would try to capitalize with a story focusing on those characters. It’s tough to say whether teaming up their villains is working just yet, but it’s a pretty interesting take on things. It’s also worth noting that DC Comics’ launched their latest event book, Flashpoint, earlier in May with issue #2 due in stores tomorrow as well. Comparisons may arise as these series go on with both companies centering their publishing lines on the events.

Spoilers for the issue and series to follow.

That’ll Move Chooch to Third Base

Posted by under *like, Sports | Join The Discussion |

The Phillies played an epic six hour and eleven minute, 19 inning game against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night and hearing the words “that’ll move Chooch from the catcher’s spot to third base” woke me from the half sleep I had fallen into. After running out of pitching options well after midnight, manager Charlie Manuel had no choice but to bring in a position player to pitch for the top of the 19th inning. Selecting second baseman Wilson Valdez as the new pitcher, Placido Polanco moved from third base to second. This was followed by catcher Carlos Ruiz (“Chooch”) moving to third, being replaced by backup catcher Dane Sardinha. Valdez recorded a full inning of work and earned his first Major League win as the Phillies scored in the bottom of the 19th behind his pitching.
