Patriotic Steve Rogers!! (Or, Happy Memorial Day 2016!!)

Patriotic Cap

Once again, I would like to wish a Happy Memorial Day weekend to our American readers!

For our international audience, as we mention every year, Memorial Day is an American Holiday wherein we celebrate the sacrifice of those who have fallen in defense of our country and in defense of the many freedoms we enjoy here–like going OFF in a Comments section when a certain comics company does something asinine with one of their best characters!

<Ahem>

I’ll be back later this week with a TV column about the Flash Season 2 finale (I have some thoughts on Season 3), and we also have the Uncanny X-Men Top Ten Set Review in the hopper!

Until then, Thank a Veteran or Active-Duty Serviceman, Stay Safe… and Watch Where You Draw Your Lines of Fire!!

Patriotic Nick Fury!! (Or, Happy Memorial Day 2015!!)

Patriotic Nick Fury

Once again, I would like to wish a Happy Memorial Day weekend to our American readers!

For our international audience, as we mentioned last year, Memorial Day is an American Holiday wherein we celebrate the sacrifice of those who have fallen in defense of our country and the many freedoms we enjoy here–like nerding out over comic plotlines or playing ‘Clix whenever we want!

And given that I’m a huge fan of “Secret Warriors,” AND that Nick Fury and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is our next set (out this July, I believe), the ol’ warhorse himself (on one of his classic Steranko covers!) seemed like the best choice for our cover art!

I’ll be back tomorrow with an article about Assembling Armies for the Avengers Assemble Chases! That’s right, it’s “Straight, With CHASEr 3!”

Until then, Thank a Veteran or Active-Duty Serviceman, Stay Safe and Watch Where You Draw Your Lines of Fire!!

Patriotic DeadPool!! (Or, Happy Memorial Day!!)

Patriotic Deadpool

Happy Memorial Day weekend to our American readers! For our international audience, Memorial Day is an American Holiday wherein we celebrate the sacrifice of those who have fallen in defense of our country and the many freedoms we enjoy here–like playing ‘Clix whenever we want!

(And yes, we realize good ol’ Wade Wilson is Canadian; but this was the best picture we could find that tied in the holiday with the most recent set release!)

We should be back at it on Monday or Tuesday with an article on the best Chase pieces in Modern, and then our traditional Top Ten set review & rebuttal for Deadpool should run towards then end of the week.

Until then, stay safe, and watch where you draw your lines of fire!!
