This issue opens up with Laura eating fries while going down on an elevator. No this isn't the Laura from earth-616 at least I think she's not since she just bonded with a symbiote and became the venom of her world. Next we see a bunch of homeless kids in an abandoned building where they come face to face with Laura. Note to self avoid abandoned buildings unless you want to meet dangerous people. Anyways Laura lets the kids leave but then they run into some guy name Zebra... Why is his name Zebra? That's the least threatening name for a threatening guy. See Laura didn't find his name threatening cause she just took him and his partner out. Also was she following them so she could eat them all one by one later? Cause if she was following them I highly doubt it was to protect them till they got attacked. Also they say seeing other people gets hurt makes them sick yet they were wanting to eat them earlier wich would have hurt and killed them so what the fuck? We see that she joins them and helps them steal ice cream with Spider-Man on the box. I take it the Peter Parker of this earth got bit by the spider and thought instead of fighting crime I'll just make ice cream that looks like a spiders web and make billions off it. Later on we see the kids attacked by guards who are trying to capture Laura. I'd say how'd all these kids not commitea crime since they had some of the symbiote on them but they did just steal ice cream that the Spider-Man of their earth made so ya. This issue ends with Laura getting pulled somewhere and meeting a venomized Captain America. Artwork was not that good as for the story it was weird but good so I give this issue a 6 out of 10. I'm fine with Captain America being venomized cause that means he's not hydra wich means the venomized Captain America is way better than Captain Hydra.

This issue opens up with Ulysses having a vision about Laura, Old Man Logan and lots of blood. Hey from the little bit I saw he might be sacrificing alot of animals for something. Also great Captain Fuck Face is in this issue and so is the racist guy who see ls the future. Next we see Old Man Logan wake up to whale sounds. For a minute there I thought my friends ex girlfriend would be in this issue. Yes she is a whale. Anyways later on some robbers break into Lauras apartment which causes all three of our Hero's to laugh. Man those guys are brave. Heck if I was them I would have backed out slowly once they started laughing. You jerks why'd you have to shoot Jonathan? Dam Gabby is badass. Note to self don't shoot Gabby's pet. Well those guys will probably feel stupid once they wake up. Also note to self don't try to rob Laura unless you want your ass handed to you. I'm Old Man Logan she's not from your future which means she won't do what your Gabby did in the future you came from. This issue ends with Captain Hydra and his men swarming Laura's apartment. Artwork was weird. The story was a psa for people thinking about robbing Laura's apartment. So I give this issue a 6 out of 10. I really hate Captain Hydra.

This issue opens up with our main characters getting out of the safe zone. Later on we see Doctor Dinkley get attacked by one of her coworkers who is now a giant monster. Note to self don't work for top secret governments or scientist unless you want to turned into a giant monster that eats people then go ahead. Wait why are they all in a monitor room and not the fuck out of that shit hole? I think I've lost brain cells just by them being idiots and not getting the hell out of there. Finally they got some weapons and are moving. Wait if Daphnes family is so rich from bubble bath products then why doesn't she just stay in the family business instead of trying to make a TV show. Like hell if I invented stuff that people can use to have a bubble bath then you bet your but I'd stay in that business. Next we almost see Shaggy have a pda moment with his work crush who is also a monster. Um Daphne you just killed a human. I mean sure she looked like a monster and wanted to eat Shaggy but she was still a human. Oh great Daphne now her kids don't have a mom anymore. Does that make you happy? If so you are a sick sick woman. Anyways next we see them all crawling around in the vents trying to get to the garage. I'm surprised none of them feel like a tv dinner while crawling around in the vents. Finally they get to the garage and find a vehicle that some scientist was making that he calls his mystery machine. I'm guessing at some point there will be a dead flower along with a skull on both sides to fit the universe they're in. To see what happens next go buy and read this issue. Artwork was great. As for the story it was slow and made me lose a few brain cells so I give this issue a 7 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. You could make a drinking game out of all the times that Norville tells someone to call him Shaggy. Shit gotta get some acohal and take a shot.

This issue opens up with Mystique dancing with the same dude at the end of the last issue. I was gonna type what the hell is his name but I just remembered it's Fantomex. Anyway there scene almost put me to sleep so I'm glad it was short. The whole scene with Magneto and Triage alone on Genosha gives you the feeling that shits gonna hit the fan there. Next we see some of The Dark Riders go head to head with Shen Xorn who beats them. Dam he is badass but so is his face or mask. I think if I ever start up cosplay that he'd be the first person I'd cosplay as. By the way have him and Iron Fist ever went head to head? If not I wonder who would win. Also if they'd all attacked him at the same time I'm sure they would have won but hey bad guys never think that shit through. Later on we see the rest of the Uncanny X-Men go to Egypt where they fight The Dark Riders. Um why is that dude orgasming by just seeing Archangel outside. My guess is that Apocalypse is inside him or something. Also dude chill out I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want you to bust a nut over him. Well that fight didn't go as planned. That last panel is just awesome. To see what I mean you should definitely go buy this issue or even the volume and read it for yourself so you can see what I'm talking about. Artwork was awesome. The story was great to I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. If you jump out of a jet or airplane without a parachute while attacking your enemies it shows them how buck wild you are. Note to self do that shit so people will know how buck wild I am.

This issue opens up with an old couple trying to decide what to eat for lunch. DQ I mean if they have a DQ in that area they should definitely go eat ther- oh look Gwenpool is here to save her friends. Um Gwenpool I highly doubt threatening to eat them will make them hand your friends over in fact I think it'll just make things worse. See told you. Dammit cyborg superman is back... Gwenpool why are you aiming your weapons at the old people who opened this issue up? We finally see cyborg superman do something good. I'm sure any guy who says real men wear pink would be happy to see the next page with all of Gwenpools poole boys wearing her colors. Anyways shit hits the fan some more but luckily Gwenpool saves all her friends who then leave her at the end of the issue. No I'm not crying I'm just chopping an onion while writing this part :'(. Artwork was great. The story was funny and action packed at the same time so I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. Captain Hydra would be very happy to know that Batroc freelances for Hydra.

This issue opens up with Peter Parker in a hospital checking on Mysterio. Oh cool it's Dr. Deadpool :). Shit I need to do something that'll get me in the hospital so I can see Dr. Deadpool. Good thing Spider-Man came in before Deadpool could try and kill Peter Parker or else Deadpool would've found out his secret. Anyways next Spider-Man and Deadpool hang out. By hang out I mean Spider-Man puts some sort of spider tracker on him that is also a lie detector that zaps you if you lie. Um what happenes if they continue to lie and it just keeps zapping them? Would it short out or kill them eventually? I'm thinking if he hasn't already that Spider-Man might want to fine tune that thing so it won't kill someone who doesn't know when to stop lying. We get a few pages of Spider-Man and Deadpool fighting bad guys with his mercs for money before Spider-Man and Deadpool fight Styx And Stone. To see how the fight ends go buy and read this issue. This issue ends with a very cute moment. Artwork was great. The story was funny, action packed and added a cute moment in at the end so I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. Deadpool is a very cool parent.

This issue opens up where the last issue ended with shit still hitting the fan cause they clearly don't watch movies to know that opening an antique box would cause shit to hit the fan. Hopefully they learn from this experience which I highly doubt they will. Next we see Iron Man shoot a mini missle at Fin Fang Foom which did jack shit. Good thing Director Hill got him to stop before he could do anymore stupid stuff. Dammit Captain Marvel there are people in there so stop your shit. Also I really hate Captain Marvel. Later on we see Laura go down into Fin Fang Fooms belly where she meets up with Old Man Logan who is being eaten by stomach acid. Anyways outside shit is still hitting the fan as the hellicarier goes into the water. When did Gabby learn to use a jetpack? No Gabby you should definitely not be a fan of fuck face Captain Marvel. But the drunk guy in an iron suit is who you should definitely be a fan of. How is she a pro with that jetpack? I mean she just saved Laura and Old Man Logan before they got eaten again. We see Laura put the pheromones all over her clothes so she can use a jetpack and drive Fin Fang Foom away from civilization. Also that reference to when other monsters have been attracted to her makes me wonder if she counts her fans as monsters given something this issue mentions but does not show. Next we get to see Laura tell Gabby how she had to give all her clothes to Fin Fang Foom which makes me ask how'd you do that in midair? Like yes I know fuck face was with her but still. Did she take off the jetpack and take of her clothes really fast as she fell cause I highly doubt she's that talented. And if Captain Marvel helped her then fuck face would have the pheromones on her wich would be great if it would just eat her afterwards but I highly doubt that one happened to do how'd she do it? Also I'm sure some horny lonely nerds are probably pissed off that they didn't get to see her jetpack naked so that they cou- I'll cut myself off before I get myself in trouble. This issue ends with Old Man Logan saying something very shocking. Artwork was great. The story was mainly shit hitting the fan so I think this issue gets a 7 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. Laura is very talented at taking all her clothes off while using a jetpack. Still would like to know how she did it just so it all makes sense but hey at least she can do something that just doesn't work in the situation she was in.
Monday, July 24, 2017
This issue opens up with us getting cyborg supermans back story. Wait he's actually a Doombot? Dam Squirrel Girl is hella old. Also before Skynet there was Dr. Doom and instead of John Connor there was Squirrel Girl. Hey John Connor seems like Squirrel Girl did a better job then you ever did. Someone tell her to stop Skynet before that fucker brings about the end of the world. Well that doesn't surprise me that the old dude became evil just because there were different people in the world. I mean most the ones now a days want the gays dead. We get back to the present where we see Gwenpool making a phone call while in the middle of a battle. Um shouldn't there be a rule for not being on your phone while fighting no matter how good you are at it. Well that didn't surprise me that her other plan didn't work like she thought it would. Miles was probably busy watching the Hulk get shot in the head at that point in time. That one police officer made me laugh. Like do you not see cyborg superman destroying the city right now or is Gwenpool so important that you don't give a shit if everyone else does or not? How you gonna arrest her if you two and cyborg superman are the only ones left huh? I really hope she doesn't come back in another issue. If she does she'd probably just lose the rest of her brain cells and let the world end even if she knew she could stop that from happening. After Gwenpool escapes we see her go back to her base where she meets a bunch of guys. Artwork was good. The story was mainly cyborg supermans backstory so I give this issue a 8 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue Officer Gray is horrible at her job and needs to be fired.
Saturday, July 22, 2017
This issue opens up with Magneto and Psylocke at the M-pox crisis center where they run into another healer. I have a feeling this guy is gonna die. I mean heck the other healers all died so it's only time before he bites the bullet to. Yo why is Hurricane named Hurricane and not storm? I mean he controls the weather to do why didn't he take that name? Was it already taken by the time he got his powers. Dam Magneto would not be fun to go up against. Next we see Monet talk to another healer with a cool mask. I mean I think it is. Later we see Magneto and the others on Genosha. Well something bad is gonna happen in the next issue cause that have one of Doctor Octopuses oto bots or whatever on their ship. This issue ends with someone getting shot and some guy talking to mystique who isn't naked like she is in the movies. Guess she finally found clothes that she really likes. Artwork was good. The story was OK so I'll give this issue a 7 out of 10.
Thursday, July 20, 2017
This issue opens up with Old Man Logan enjoying nature. I wonder if they're gonna kill him off and have his death bring the other Logan back or of they'll just make him get younger somehow for marvel legacy. I mean heck if they can bring the old Hulk back from the dead instead of actually keeping him dead then I'm sure they'll find a way to bring the other Logan back. Anyways some hikers come and ask for directions before they turn into terminators with claws and attack Old Man Logan. Note to self never give hikers directions cause chances are they'll be terminators with claws. Next we get to see a naked chick in a glass tank full of water. Note to self avoid tall glass tanks of water even if there is a hot naked chick in one cause chances are scientist will be there and will put you in one to. Next we see some old man getting mad just because Old Man Logan has been on a computer to long... Um dude there were a ton of empty ones all around so why was his so important? I guess just so they could have the panel where the old man freaks out about him reading stuff about mutants. Would you rather him read erotic fiction? Watch porn? Look at porn? Are you saying any of those would be more acceptable than him reading about mutants? Next we get to see Sabertooth and Old Man Logan fight for a bit. This issue ends with Old Man Logan going in Sabertooths cabin, eating his food while he lets a terminator with claws attack them both. Artwork was good. The story was good but hasn't really caught my interest much even though there was a hot naked chick in a tall glass tank full of water. Thus I give this issue a 8 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. Don't give directions to hikers and don't trust little kids cause chances are they'll be terminators with claws.
Wednesday, July 19, 2017
This issue opens up with The Scarlet Spider on the statue of liberty talking to one of his imaginary selvs. What. The. Fuck. Is. Going. On? Like what kinda comicbook is this gonna be? Funny, scary, villain gone good, or superhero? Like pick one and stick with it. Next we see him stop a chick from being robbed. If the voices in his head that he talks to weren't enough to prove that he's crazy then him asking the robber to have something more threatening then a knife definitely proves he's crazy. Instead of Uncle Ben being shot we see the robber get shot. I find it funny how the woman he saves has red hair and that her name is Mandy. Let me guess Ben Reilly and Mandy are gonna get together in a future issue, then later on they'll get married and after that they'll sell their marriage to the devil. I sure hope that's what happens. Later on we see Kaine dress like the jackel just to get information from one of the people who used to work for him... Um isn't Kaine supposed to be a superhero like Spider-Man? Anyways next we see Ben Reilly go to a casino where he meets an old lady named June who loves to gamble so much that her husband came looking for her then decided to fuck off when Ben Reilly said he was her nephew. Um dude you've been married to this woman for years so why'd you bail when he said he was her nephew even though you clearly knew he wasn't. Also why does Ben Reilly want June to be an aunt. Seems like sometimes he's trying to be Deadpool and other times he's trying to be like Peter Parker. Just fucking decide even though you're nither one. Do armed men normally rob casinos in las vegas? If so couldn't they just break the machines somehow and get all the money from those machines that clearly have money in them? Anyways shit hits the fan. Aunt June tells people to shut up and this issue ends with Ben Reilly getting a gun in the face. Artwork was ok. The story was hella confusing so I give this issue a 7 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. If you walk into a casino and see an old lady gambling while her husband tells at her just go up and tell him that you're her nephew and he'll gladly fuck off.
Monday, July 17, 2017
This issue opens up with Peter Parker spilling go get em juice all over himself... Wait is that really the name of this smart drink/juice or whatever the fuck it is? Or did the dumb Mary Jane of earth 616 make a drink which I highly doubt since she's a dumb broad. Or are they just making fun of her stupid catchphrase? Either way I'm glad that shit does not exist in the real world cause I'd never buy that shit. Dude Peter why is a little girl in your office and are you letting her talk to you like that? Later on we see Deadpool in bed with his wife. Just to be clear it is not a sex scene or I'd skip over it. Anyways we see him looking at a laptop while talking to his wife about Peter Parker and why he does but also doesn't want to kill him. I'm gonna have to ask my friend if he's up to date with current Deadpool and ask him if Deadpool still breaks the forth wall or not anymore cause it sure seems like he doesn't or else I'm sure he'd know that Spider-Man is Peter Parker by now unless the One More Day storyline made it so that even being able to break the fourth wall and all Deadpool would still never figure it out. Oh look it's Spider-Lad talking to The Amazing Spider-Man as he swings through the city... Um why the fuck is he wishpering? I mean I know why Deadpools wife did it but why does Spider-Lad need to do it? Dammit I missed free hugs with Deadpool day. Also Spider-Lad he was just hugging people no need to call The Amazing Spider-Man unless all three of you guys were gonna hug people. Anyways Deadpool and The Amazing Spider-Man talk before an army of goblins attack. Dammit they weren't real. I wanted it to be real so that I could see The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Lad and Deadpool all fight an army of goblins. Guess I'll have to read Superior Spider-Man to see that fight. Which by the way I really think they should bring Superior Spider-Man back. Next we find out who's responsible for making all of New York freak out. Note to self don't let Deadpool drive anything cause he will hit people. This issue ends with Deadpool calling his client Patient Zero. Artwork was great. The story was really good so I'll give this issue a 10 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue but did not really need to know. Where Deadpools grapes are.
Sunday, July 16, 2017
This issue opens up with a weapons deal going down on a boat in the middle of the ocean. I have a feeling that shit is gonna hit the fan... Actually no I know that shit will hit the fan. Never go out on the ocean or into space cause that's when shit tends to hit the fan the most. No I'm being serious go watch action movies that involve people in space or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. See told you shit would hit the fan. That lady just opened that box which caused shit to hit the fan. Note to self avoid antique boxes cause chances are if you open one up shit will hit the fan. Next we see Laura and Gabby walking their pet wolverine. Is Jonathan gonna be a recurring thing or is he gonna end up like Spider-Mans spider-mobile? What the hell is twenty-five with chicken. Later on we get to see Director Hill overuse her power and answer Lauras phone and also turn her speaker on. So she's totally fired right? Right? Seriously what the hell is twenty-five with chicken? I want some dammit! Anyways we find out that Director Hill recovered the antique box from the beginning of this issue. Um why are you guys opening it? Seriously guys don't. Oh great now look what you idiots did. To see what the idiots did go buy and read this issue. Artwork was good. As for the story good but it also made me crave twenty-five with chicken so I give this issue a 9 out of 10. Things I want to learn from this issue is what in the fuck is twenty-five with chicken!?
Saturday, July 15, 2017
This issue opens up where the last issue left off with the cops and aliens pointing guns at Gwenpool. That scene with the train was funny. Note to self don't live in the marvel universe cause trains won't stop when they see aliens and cops pointing guns at people. Next we see Gwenpool jump onto the moving train. Note to self don't try that unless you want to hurt your arms like Gwenpool did. Later on we get to see what Sarah looks like without the terrible eye on. No I won't say if she's cute or ugly. You'll just have to read this issue for yourself to find out. I have to say the whole scene where Gwenpool explains her plan to the team was pretty cool. This issue ends with cyborg superman being shot in the face by Gwenpool. Artwork was great. The story was funny so I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Hey Gwenpool just get some green stuff and throw it at cyborg superman. He has the same weakness as that lame superhero right? Things I learned from this issue. To avoid old people named Vin cause chances are they're cyborg superman.
Saturday, July 8, 2017
This issue opens up with Spider-Man and Deadpool webbed up together while in hell. Wait is this a sign that this will be one hell of a series? I'm guessing everything turns Deadpool on cause that's definitely what it seems like. Dude what the heck are those things? Go read the issue to see what I'm talking about. Note to self don't get webbed up with Deadpool unless you're kinky and want to do kinky stuff with him. Anyways Spider-Man and Deadpool finally get free and give us a flashback... No fighting first really? Just a flashback. In this flashback we see Spider-Man fighting water. Dam water cools people and keeps them hydrated! I think I'm gonna go fight a bottle of water. We go back to hell where we see Deadpool and Spider-Man fighting whatever those things are... Um why does Deadpool have pockets full of brains. Oh that's why. After Spider-Man and Deadpool get out of hell we see them fight water. Well my fight with the bottle of water went well I drank all the water in it. This issue ends with Deadpool saying he's gonna kill p- Artwork was awesome. The story was funny and weird but hella good so I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. Avoid Spider-Man and Deadpool unless you want to go through some weird shit and have a weird day. Also you'd probably end up in hell hanging with them.
Friday, July 7, 2017
This issue opens up with a flashback to the last time Laura saw Logan... I mean at least that's what I think. If I'm wrong please let me know. Anyways we go to the present where Laura gets woken up by Squirrel Girl and Jonathan the wolverine. Aww Gabby has a pet... Wait would wolverines even be good pets? Wait how do the squirrels know that it was Laura who caused men to go after their father and their home to be destroyed? Seriously how?? Anyways the next few pages are of Wolverine looking for the squirrel. That scene with the father and son. Dammit son what'd I tell you about bringing animals into our apartment. Good thing you didn't have a cat in here or Black Cat probably would have came and robbed us. This issue ends on a sweet moment. Artwork was great. The story was funny and good at the same time. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. I feel bad for the squirrel that didn't get it's nut back from wolverine. Things I learned from this issue. Don't bring a squirrel into your house unless you want Wolverine and Squirrel Girl to come into your house.
Sunday, July 2, 2017
This issue opens up with the reverend putting bandages on the mark carved into his skin. Well that's what you get for smoking and gambling. Note to self don't gamble also try to quit vaping. Later on we see Megan have coffee and chat with Kyle's ex wife. Wait Allison you really like when Kyle calls you and says nothing? Is everyone in this series werid? Oh that's funny. Kyle just visited the kid who was so hungry that he ate his own finger in the first issue. I'm still surprised that the parents let him go up that after he pretty much beat a demon out of their son. If he starts acting like he's possed again just beat the demon out of him again. Yes we promise that we won't press any charges. Some other stuff goes down which you'll have to buy and read this issue to see what went down and how this issue ended. Artwork was great. Story still has a good pace. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Finally the reverend admits that he's a failure and can't preform an exorcism for shit. Though I wouldn't really trust Kyle ethier unless he promised that he wouldn't beat the shit out of my kid cause hell yeah I'd press charges even if he did get the demon out.
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
In this issue we get to see Casey save the day without using her powers. Which was great to read cause it shows that anyone can be a hero no matter what. Casey also gets to have a very important talk with her father. So now that he's talked to her will he quit spying on her? We also learn that Invulnerable doesn't know certain stuff which is very surprising since you'd think he'd know that stuff. All in all this issue was a fantastic issue and has me waiting on issue four wondering what will happen next. The artwork was wonderful. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Remember kids and everyone else don't be mean to someone for no reason and if you see someone being mean to someone else for no reason be the hero and save the day. Also be sure to check out the kickstarter for Like Father, Like Daughter issue four. They have some awesome rewards. Link up above :)

So Saturday I got a new phone and lost all my previous reviews which were saved in my notes so no new post till I get some new one reviewes written which I will make sure to save in other areas so that if I get a new phone again I'll always have backups. The stuff I won't be reviewing any more are Supernatural, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man and so on. Stuff I will be reviewing is New Comic Day, some Marvel and DC and independent comics :).
Friday, February 10, 2017
This issue opens up with The Mary Janes trick or treating. Ok I know Mary Jane is the scarlet spider and I know that the scarlet spider has been in comics but I haven't read those. Anyways the rest of the group decides to go somewhere else since Gwen is still upset. Well I can say this them going to an old abandoned carnival probably isn't the best idea. It's probably just as bad as the night when me and the ex and a few of our friends were gonna drive to an old pond of whatever that is poisonous and on the way their we were driving on a road that had graves off to the side and shit just got bad from there. Just so you all no I was not gonna swim in that pond at night or ever but me and my ex girlfriends friends sure wanted to go skinny dipping in it that night. Anyways so The Mary Janes go to the abandoned carnival where shit soon goes bad such as one friend running off after a cat while the others fall in a hole. Um Betty that cat definitely has nine lives so I'm sure it'll be fine. The Mary Janes also experience gas that makes them hallucinate their biggest fears. All I have to say is the villan didn't really seem like much of a villain cause once Betty came through the door with an axe in hand the dude freaked out. This issue ends with a big boom. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise pretty good. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. I feel bad for Gwen hopefully she'll be happy again soon. Things I learned from this issue. Mary Jane of earth 65 is afraid of dancing so I wonder what earth 616 Mary Jane is afraid of. Oh wait I know. She's afraid of marrying Peter Parker.

This whole issue is pretty much Suicide Squad vs Zod and some other characters. To see everything that happens go buy snd read this issue. Um I'm kinda disappointed and glad that this arc only lasted four issues. Disappointed cause I feel like they could've maybe done five issues or 6 and add a little more to tge arc. Glad it only lasted four issue cause it didn't seem like they were doing a whole lot with the arc so I give this issue a 8 out of 10. Hopefully the next arc will be longer. Didn't really learn anything from this issue.

This episode opens up with a couple hearing a baby crying in an old house and then going inside to find it only to die. See kids this is why you don't go in abandoned houses when you hear a baby cry cause chances are you'll end up dead. Also after watching shows like this you should always take notes. Next we see Sam and Deans mom reading their dads journal, talk to Cas about something and then cut her hair. I wonder when Sam will cut his hair. Later we see Sam and Deans mom find them a case. See guys if Sam and Dean and there mom weren't around to hunt monster or stop people from dying in weird ways than people would keep being stupid and dying in weird ways like having their hearts turned to ice in a room tha was sixty something. Those scenes with Cas and Crowley are pretty funny. Anyways Sam, Dean and Mary all go to the abandoned house where people hear babies crying only to have their mom get grabbed by a creepy ghost kid. If this ever happened to me I'd run out of the house then come back later and burn the dam thing to the ground. Dam Rowena way to show the devil that you're not as stupid as you look. Note to self never trust Rowena. Next we get a few scenes of Mary talking to people on the phone and then going back to the abandoned house alone. Didn't she ever learn not to do that in hunting 101 or whatever? I'd say she's a Winchester so she can't die but heck they all do and then they come back well except for their Dad. Anyways after Sam and Dean fight their possed mom and then burn the body of the real ghost that's haunting the place they go back to the bunker only to have something very sad happen. To see what happens and why it's sad go watch this episode. Dam that ending is sad but you could see how hurt Dean was so I'll give this episode a 9 out of 10. Things I learned from this episode if you hear a baby crying in an abandoned house don't go in unless you have a death wish.

This issue opens up with Peter Parker talking about his tux and then Mary Jane who happens to show up right as he's talking about her. She's not as hot as Gwen Stacy but she's ok. Later on we see Tony Stark tell Peter Parker that he needs to be more like him and then tells him that Spider-Man is costing Parker Industries more money then he is helping them make it. Tony I'm pretty sure Iron Man has done the same thing for your company in the past so you have no room to talk. Anyways the next few pages are Peter being jelous that Mary Jane is at his companies party or whatever with Tony Stark and also being nervous to talk cause he sees her in ghe crowd. Dude you've probably porked her a lot so why are you all nervous dude? Just think of all the times you've porked her and that should help you geg past the nervousness. Also yes you did screw up. Heck you did it clear back in that one Spider-Man series where your aunt got shot and you made a deal with the devil... wait actually you didn't screw up cause Mary Jane is not your true love it was Gwen Stacy who is hottef than Mary Jane. Anyways next the Ghost attacks the party snd then we see a team up between Iron Man and Spider-Man. Um guys less arguing with each and more kicking the bad guys ass. Dude I know August Roman he's from that one Spider-Man series where Peter Parker and Mary Jane were still married. To see how Spider-Man and Iron Man beat the Ghost go buy and read this issue. This issue ends with August Roman suiting up in his Regent suit while looking at screens of superheros. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise pretty good. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Sucks that Peter Parkers true love is dead. Things I learned from this issue. That Peter Parker didn't screw up when he made that deal with the devil.

Last year I did an Interview with the writer/artist C.D. Rudd hope you guys enjoy and check his stuff out :).
1: What got you into comics?
C.D. Rudd: I used to read comics when I was a kid. Marvel, DC, Archie, Manga (Viz and Tokyopop), Image etc... I wasn't a huge reader, but I read.
What got me into webcomics, though, was an idea I had for a comic. I wanted to make a comic, but lacked the skill to do it well. I use to spend HOURS thinking and plotting and figuring out the comic. Sketching possible characters when I had the chance.
Then one day, I came across a webcomic. I've read professional comics online before. But when I saw a amateur comic, this inspired me to practice making comics, so that one day I could move onto making 'the comic' I've always wanted to make.
2: How'd you come up with the idea for I Dream Of a Jeanie Bottle?
C.D. Rudd: It was really a fluke. I watched a lot of I Dream of Jeannie at one point (I'm a big retro TV fan), and decided to make a comic of some guy getting turned into a genie that looked like the TV genie. I posted it on Deviantart and it was received extremely well. So I drew another... then another... then another.. eventually I decided... well, might as well make this into a webcomic, since I was already up to like 20 or 30 strips by that point.
3: How long has this series been around?
C.D. Rudd: The first Jeanie Bottle comcic went up February 18, 2009 (http://fav.me/d1vi74z)
4: Would you ever want this series to be a tv show or movie? If so why or why not?
C.D. Rudd: I would love to see it go further then just webcomics.
5: How long does it normally take you to write a strip or complete arc for this series?
C.D. Rudd: It varies depending on what's going on, the size and what's in the strip. I usually have a good idea what's going to happen weeks ahead of time, if not earlier. Creating a strip usually takes 3 - 4 hours. Each story usually tends to go 1/4 - 1/2 of a year (remember, it's updated once a week).
6: What is your favorite arc or arcs and why?
C.D. Rudd: Favorite... usually the next one to be made... Why? Cause there is SO much potential to come out of it.
if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the 'I Dream of a B-witch' story. I always wanted to see what Jeannie and Samantha would do if they ever met.
7: Who's your favorite character in this series and why?
C.D. Rudd: That's like asking, "Who's your favorite child?" If I had to pick one right now... I'd say Araceli. I love the way the readers rally behind her at one moment, and then hate her another. She's a lovable character who's good and bad at the same time.
8: What advice could you give to someone who wants to start writing their own webcomic?
C.D. Rudd: I believe you need 2 of 3 things to have a good webcomic. A good story and characters, good art and/or update regularly. To have a great webcomic, you need all three.
Too many webcomicers start off well but then slow down, go on hiatus or just quit before they can build a readership. One thing I wish all webcomicers would do is to conclude a project before stopping it cold.
9: What experiences have you learned from writing this series?
C.D. Rudd: That people are no longer upset when seeing a Genie's naval.
10: What about this series makes it special to you?
C.D. Rudd: It's a unique series that appeals to the younger crowd and the older crowd who remember the classic TV shows.
11: How long is this series going to be around?
C.D. Rudd: Till I get tired of making it. Or till Jeanie get trapped in her bottle. Whichever comes first.
12: If you could date any comic book character who would you date and why?
C.D. Rudd: Anyone? I'd say the English version of Mutsumi Otohime from Love Hina. She's kind, sweet, carrying, (hot) and owns flying turtles... Who wouldn't date her?
13: Where can people find you on the internet?
C.D. Rudd: Between the one and the zero, after the two. (That's a little computer joke.)
This issue opens up with Jake and his friends packing all their stuff so that they can leave before Jakes fat crazy uncle gets their... dude is he that excited to leave for his crazy trip that he's already at the door looking for Jake or did the writers just decide to give him a head start. Ok that makes no sense to tell them to go upstairs and wait when they're already doing that you old fart. Anyways the next few scenes are them sneaking out before his uncle can see them and then his uncle reading the letter he wrote to his parents. I'm guessing Jakes fat crazy uncle used to sneak into girls houses at night. I mean with the way he's acting right now it gives me that impression. Later on we see Jake meet up with Frank and then go in and get a gun and some money from his dads safe in the store. Yep the writers definitely gave the fat crazy uncle some advantages in this issue cause he's already at the store beating the heck out of old man Frank. Dude I'm pretty sure that your new America needs sciencetist and probably doesn't want people who'll go around and beat the fuck out of people just cause their different from you. Ya all I can say is this whole issue was stupid so it doesn't surprise me that the ending would be just as dumb. Don't ever read this series. Artwork was meh. Story wise way to dumb for me yo handle. I give this issue a 3 out of 10. So glad I'm done with this series. Things I learned from this issue. Don't hang around your fat crazy uncle when the whole world goes to shit unless you like having some fat crazy guy beat the fuck out of you just cause you're different from him.

This issue opens up with Aliens turning Gwenpool into a pig. Is is bad that me seeing her as a pig makes me want bacon? Dammit I really need to buy bacon just for when moments like this happen. Later on we find out that they didn't actually turn her into a pig she just put a costume on a pig which works for a short while. I thought she'd know that that plan wouldn't last long. Anyways we see her meet with the mystery client who seems way to normal. No really like you know how some people are normal and then some are way to normal like they have skeletons in their closet. Don't trust him Gwenpool. As soon as you get the chance kill him. Anyways we get a scene of a cop calling M.O.D.O.K to figure out where their base is which doesn't go as planned.

Later on we neet Wills new governess who's name is Madamoiselle Phoebe De Azaïs. I can't even pronounce that name. Wait Will is just like his moms. I wonder if his governess is gonna rip out his wings for her soul. Seems like she's got some bad luck already cause three guys just tried to kill her in broad daylight... wait really guys are you that stupid or was the law extremely messed up back then that you could pull that shit without getting in trouble. Hey I'm pretty sure anyone who loves purging would love living in their time period if the law is that screwed. So anywayd we see Mariah stab one in the eye and use her powers on the other two to make them forget what happened. I'm thinking that Wills governess is the snake lady in disguise or that she's done something else but is still evil. After a while we get to see Lady Bertram break out of her cocoon and then we get another sex scene with her and Mariah. If you ask me these two love to fuck a lot and love being naked. To see the present left for Lady Bertram and how this issue ends go buy and read it. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise pretty good. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. I'd say I wonder how long Lady Bertram and Mariah could go without fucking or taking off their clothes and I just remembering the first of the issue told me how long they've gone without fucking or taking all their clothes off. Things I learned from this issue. Wills new governess will probably rip his wings out later on for her soul.

This episode opens up with Sam having sex with Supernaturals biggest fan. Guess Sam was into her beating the shit out of him... wait does that mean Sam would make ouy with Tuss Mackmey if he went to Mackmey Manor?

Saturday, February 4, 2017
This issue opens up with a bunch of people finding out different things about Scorpio and how they work but not being able to reach Peter Parker. Well that's definitely what he gets for knocking out a bunch of satellites. Next we see Scorpio with all the zodiac. Hey Scorpio don't gloat until you actually win. See what you get for gloating now Spider-Man found you and is gonna kick your ass. We get a few pages of team Spider-Man vs team Scorpio. Well looks like Scorpio just screwed both teams over and made a team all by himself. Later on we get a few scenes of Spider-Man playing keep away with the zodiac key. Just hearing what Spider-Man is feeling while he's holding the key would instantly make me drop the thing. Dude Spider-Man why'd you let him take the key away? Now he just opened the giant door. Dam you Spider-Man you just let him win! Dam you to hell! To see what stuff Scorpio sees when he opens the giant door and how this issue ends go buy and read this issue. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise pretty good end to an arc. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. I'm guessing that Spider-Man locking Scorpio in that room is gonna come back to bite him in the ass. Things I learned from this issue. Don't touch the zodiac key unless you want to play keep away with Scorpio while it burns you.

This issue opens up with a flashback to when Brent fucked one of Franks nieces on new years eve. Well it looks like their year started off pretty well.. not. Although when I think about it it'd be nice to have a girlfriend so I can get a kiss on new years and some sex to start the new year in great way. Anyways we go to the present where Jake and Brent go to ask Frank for help. Sadly for Brent he gets left outside since Frank still hates him. Note to self don't do what Brent did. We get to see more of the angry, fat bald stupid uncle. Kinda reminds me of someone I know who's that way and also beats the crap out of kids and tries to break their knees. Wait he almost kills the old man just cause he saw the papers he has and read them. That's like me going to a grocery store after reading this comic and pushing some old person on the ground just because this comic pisses me off. Anyways next we see Jake and Brent go to his family's grocery store where they get attacked. I'm just gonna end this review here since the rest of the issue almost made me fall asleep. Artwork was ok. Story wise a little better but not much. I give this issue a 6 out of 10. Yay one more issue to go! :D. Things I learned from this issue. Go push an old person to the ground if someone, reads and looks at any kind of papers you have cause that'll definitely show them how mad you are and solve all your problems.
This issue opens up with Mockingbird beating the crap out of zombies with her glowing hands. Note to self find stuff that'll make my hands glow so that when and if the zombies come I can just hold up my glowing hands and beat the crap out of them. Later on she saves a doctor who tells her why the zombies are there and where to go to get the antiviral so they can stop all the zombies. One things for sure is with glowing hands you wouldn't need to waste money on flashlights anymore cause your glowing hands would light the place when it was dark. Anyways on the way to the antiviral room Mockingbird runs into a talking duck and Spider-Man. When I see that talking duck all I think is I wonder how good that duck would taste. To see if Mockingbird stops the zombies and how this issue ends go buy and read this issue. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise eh good. I give this issue a 7 out of 10. Now I want glowing hands. Things I learned from this issue. That I want to cook that talking duck and eat it.

This issue opens up with Vesper relaxing till Corrick comes to ruin her moment of relaxation. Note to self Corrick is good at keeping people safe but not giving them their personal space. Anyways later ln they meet up with Tegan and who leads them straight to Dominic who was being a total stalker and pervert. See kids even back in the old west perverts and stalkers existed. Anyways we get a scene where Corrick knocks Dominic out and then Tegan beats the shit out of him so they can go find the spellbook that they're after. To see what happens next and how this issue ends go buy and read this issue. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise slow but good. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. Can't wait to see how this volume ends :). Things I learned from this issue. To listen to Corrick when he says not to go after the spellbook that created him.
This issue opens up with Green Arrow beating the crap out of some cops. Well he'd definitely be dead if he was a normal person like me. Oh look we're gonna get a Green Arrow and Diggle team up. Wait why isn't he wearing his costume that he has from the tv show? I'm so confused. Anyways next we see Black Canary put a bomb on some guys neck to try and get him to talk. For a minute there I thought she was serious but it turned out to actually be a dog collar. Anyways we get a short little scene between her and Emiko which ends with Black Canary being knocked out. Later on we see Green Arrow and Diggle fight. Wait who are they fighting over? They better explain why in future issues. To see who wins the fight, everything else that happens and how this issue ends go buy and read this issue. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise good but not great. I give this issue a 8 out of 10. So is comic book Diggle ever gonna get a costume? Things I learned from this issue. Oliver Queen slept with Diggles woman.

Later on we see Cas make a crash landing somewhere, knock some guy out and steal his truck. At least put the guy in hus truck with you so he can drive himself home after you use it. Anyways next we see Supernaturals biggest fan hire some guy to fix Sam up. I'm guessing she'll take him to her creepy basement after he fixes Sam up. From the likes of Sams condition it seems like she's pretty kinky. We also get to see that Crowley is trying to find the devil. While in one house he finds some demons. One of the demons actually is funny to figure out which one it is go watch this episode. Next we get a scene where Deans mom almost shoots Cas and then another scene where she admires Deans car. I like that car to and want one just like it. We get a couple more scenes of Supernaturals biggest fan torturing Sam by giving him a cold shower, burning his feet and then putting drugs in his system. By the looks of it Sam doesn't like her Kinky methods. To see what else happens and how this episode ends go watch it. I give this episode a 10 out of 10. See guys told you she'd take him to her dank basement. Things I learned from this episode. Don't mess with Deans mom cause she's pretty badass.

This issue opens up with a flashback showing us how Brent and Jake became friends. Wait Brent sells kids weed? He looks like he's at least 7 or 10 so how does he already have access to that stuff plus both swear like truckers. I take it both their parents are messed up. Anyways we go back to present day where we see Jakes uncle or whoever shoot and kill the redneck hillbillies. Yep definitely would not hang out with this guy. I'm sure my other friend would like him a lot. Anyways next we get a scene where the murderous uncle thinks he knows everything and then the sciencetist tell everyone to what's really happening. I feel like one or both of those sciencetist will die later in the series. I'd say buy this issue but so far it doesn't seem like it's something worth reading unless you want to bore yourself to sleep. Artwork was ok. Story wise crazy and lame. I give this issue a 6 out of 10. Yay two more issues to go. Things I learned from this issue. Trust sciencetist cause they seem to know everything about everything.
This issue opens up with George Stacy yelling at Jean Dewolff over the phone. I'd say don't yell at her dude but he's definitely got reason to yell at her. Next we see the fight between Spider-Gwen and Frank Castle. And no I don't feel like spoiling it but it was definitely awesome. This issue ends on a very sad tone. To see who one the fight between Frank Castle and Spider-Gwen and to see why this issue ends on a sad note go buy and read this issue. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise great close for this arc. I give this issue a 10 out of 10. I feel so bad for Gwen Stacy. Things I learned from this issue. That Gwen Stacy really needs a hug at the moment and I wish I could give her one.
Saturday, January 28, 2017
This issue opens up with us seeing what's left of Captain Boomerang. Anyone else in the mood for some fried chicken? Also note to self don't go up against a kryptonian unless you want them to vaporiz you leaving only your feet. And I'm sure somehow they'll manage to bring Captain Boomerang back even though he should stay dead since that's what'd happen in real life. Anyways we see the suicide squad shooting at zod which is pretty much a waste of time since duh he's kryptonian. We also get to see Enchantress in action for a bit till she gets hit by Killer Croc. Well Harley Quinn has the right i- actually on second thought maybe not since a bunch of Russians in high tech suits just came down and shot at her. Good thing she got out alive. Later on we see Harley Quinn and Deadshot kill the high tech Russians. To see the new characters that get introduced and how this issue ends go buy and read it. Artwork was pretty good. Story wise feels like they're stalling a bit. I give this issue a 7 out of 10. I wonder how long it'll take for this story arc to be over with since they shorten it by adding in other stuff about the different suicide squad members in the last half of the issue. Things I learned from this issue. Don't mess with Katana unless you want her to stab you with her sword and trap your soul inside it.

Last year I interviewed Electric Gecko. Hope you guys enjoy and check his stuff out.
1: What got you into comics?
Electric Gecko: Some of my earliest memories revolve around comics: reading comic strips in the newspaper, sifting through old silver age comics that I’d pick up at flea markets for a few quarters, that sort of thing. The comic has always been a noble, inpsiring medium to me: a place where imagination ran unfettered. I drew comics as a small child. As a teen, I devoted myself to ridiculous superhero titles now best forgotten. And when I got to university and had some free time on my hands, I knew that I wanted to try my hand at a strip comic. That’s where Puck began.
2: How'd you come up with the idea for Puck?
Electric Gecko: The exact (and highly complex) process of Puck’s creation is a long, odd tale that I explain in detail in Puck: Volume One. (Print and PDF editions available! Shameless plug!) But to simplify it, let’s just say that I wanted to do a strip comic that was funny, offbeat, a little sexy, and generally unlike the bulk of what existed in strip comics at the time. Nowadays, weird slice-of-life comics staring fantasy-type creatures are seemingly a mainstay of the internet, but back when I started, I’m proud to say that I was a bit of a pioneer.
3: How long has Puck been around?
Electric Gecko: Puck started as a student newspaper comic in the Silhouette, a weekly paper at McMaster University. That was in 1998. Yes, that was in the previous millennium. That means this webcomic is old. Like, old old. Let’s put it this way: the first Puck website predated Google by a few years. In internet terms, we’re talking ancient e-history here. Puck is actually now older than I was when I started the comic. That’s freaky to think about.
4: Would you ever want Puck to be a tv show or movie?
Electric Gecko: That would be cool – particularly a Puck TV show. Puck is a slice-of-life comedy that I essentially made as a demented take on the television sitcoms of old. You know, like Full House? I could see Puck as a show like that, I think: Full House with more violence and pointy ears. That said, I think the concept of a live action Puck show would be kind of horrifying. Like that live action ‘The Tick’ show. Remember that? Nightmarish. I’d want that thing to be animated, if at all possible.
5: How long does it normally take you to write a strip for Puck?
Electric Gecko: The writing part takes me no real quantifiable time. The ideas for comics come to me when I’m doing other things, like eating or pooping. What takes real time is drawing the comic (and inking the comic, and scanning the comic, and coloring the comic, and inserting word bubbles in the comic, and posting the comic). From start to finish, I probably put in twelve to twenty hours a week on Puck. It’s not a great payoff for the time investment, really, given the fact that I only produce one comic a week. If I were smarter, I would have chosen to draw the strip in a sloppier, quicker style that would have cut down on production time. But I clearly wasn’t that smart.
6: Who's your favorite character and why?
Electric Gecko: Puck, the main character, would have to be my favorite. She’s a rampaging redheaded nightmare. She screams at bystanders and punches doctors and masterminds elaborate plans to put her sister-in-law in traction. She’s not a good character, per se, but she is an interesting character, and I have to admit that I live somewhat vicariously through her. I do not regularly threaten or attack those people who wrong me, but I dearly wish I could. Puck does threaten and attack those people who wrong her. Regularly. And I find it somewhat cathartic.
7: How long is Puck going to be? Do you have a plot already mapped out?
Electric Gecko: Well, I started Puck in university, and it ran for three years as a student paper comic. When my undergrad ended, I stopped the comic. Then, ten years later, I was bored and started Puck back up again. That was five years ago, and I’ve been going steady ever since. I have no real plans to stop.
Whenever I start a story arc, I already have it mapped out in my head, though I’m open to taking things in a different direction if I suddenly come up with a funnier idea. Story arcs take a long time to finish when you only have four panels of content every week, however. I started a basic little story arc a year ago, and fifty-two weeks later, I still haven’t finished it. At that glacial rate of progress, I probably have enough stories in me to last me another twenty years, at least. Though I might get bored or frustrated before then and call it quits. Who knows?
8: What advice could you give to someone who wants to start writing their own comic series?
Electric Gecko: If you want to be a comic creator, I say that there’s really only one question that you should ask yourself: Am I having fun? Well, are you? Are you enjoying the process of creating and sharing your work? Because if you are, then you’re in the right place; you’re doing the right thing. If you aren’t having fun, then stop. Immediately. Find something else to do with your life, because let’s face it: comics have always been a terrible way to make money. The market is small, the competition is fierce, and the internet’s taught everyone that entertainment is free now. Starting up a comic is perhaps the second worst ‘get rich quick’ scheme I’ve ever heard, right behind starting up a metal band. You need to do it for the love of it, because that’s probably the only reward you’re ever going to get.
9: What experiences have you learned from writing this series?
Electric Gecko: I’ve learned a lot about how the internet works, how to manage a website, how to advertise – boring stuff like that, which I actually find quite interesting. Beyond the practical stuff, I’ve learned that people on the internet are actually 95% awesome. Most people on the internet are friendly and supportive and encouraging. You wouldn’t think that after looking at most Youtube comments, but I now realize that those hateful Youtube comments come exclusively from the tiny-minded idiot portion the population. They’re only 5% of the total, so don’t be afraid to share your stuff out there. Some people might hate it, sure, but lots of people will be supportive and encouraging, and that’s totally worth it.
10: What about this series makes it special to you?
Electric Gecko: Well, it’s special to me personally because of the characters. I like my characters; I’ve been writing these characters for a long time now, and they feel sort of like family to me. That said, if you asked the bulk of my male readers, I think that many guys who read my comic would say it’s special because of the humor and the art. It provides the odd chuckle, and, well, there’s lots of drawings of pretty girls. I unabashedly like drawing pretty girls. So if you’re into that, then there’s that.
Beyond that stuff, though, I’d say that the thing which makes the comic most unique, in comparison to all the others out there, is fact that it that centers on themes and concepts that you don’t see given much attention in comics: themes like motherhood, and family dynamics. It’s a comic with a ‘strong female lead’ who isn’t a ninja assassin or some teen warrior struggling to bring down a dystopian empire or some crap like that. It’s a comic about an unemployed mother of two living in a sketchy neighborhood who’s just trying to get by. There’s not a lot of that stuff out there in comics.
11: If you could date any comic book character who would you date and why?
Electric Gecko: I’ve been married for fifteen years and haven’t dated in forever, so I think I’m allowed to take a pass on this question. And it’s a good thing I can pass on it, because it’s a hard, hard question. All the comic characters that I find interesting, engaging and sexy would be really, really hard to live with on a daily basis. And all the characters who would be really easy to live with are kind of boring. Take the X-Men, for example. Scott Summers and Jean Grey are the relatively responsible, kind, and well-adjusted types. They would both be good to date, but damn it if they aren’t boring! They’re like the dry toast of superheroes! Hell, Jean Grey had to be possessed by an alien being and turned into a fiery genocidal demigod just to make her even remotely interesting. Characters like Wolverine and Rogue, meanwhile, are damaged goods; they’d be really awful choices to date in real life. They’d be all angsty and pained, and calling you ‘bub’ and sucking the life energy out of you. They’d be awful people to live with, but damn it if they aren’t sexy. I guess that’s why we don’t date comic book characters.
