Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episode 7 Opinion Piece

   I love the Heavy Metal music featured in this episode! Also I prefer the English dub over the Japanese dub for this episode of Bebop. Though I do think both voice actresses of VT sound somewhat similar in their vocals and delivery. I also think the Toy Story/Disney parody with the kid restaurant was amusing. As was Decker looking like Woody Allen. Finally I think the waitress's personality was funny in terms of what they did, but bad in that it was stereotyping.

   Questions! How many people have posted speculations about how VT's husband died? Does the creator of Cowboy Bebop have something against Woody Allen? Why wasn't there more Heavy Metal playing in this episode? Why was the eel tattoo guy made into someone with a sexual fetish for eels in the English dub, while in the original he seems to be just a cartoon fan?

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Marvel Storm Conditions Edition

1. Hellstorm: Prince Of Lies #1 from 1993 is a relatively decent issue that shows the potential for two of Marvel's supernatural characters. The art could be less scratchy looking in certain panels but is decent overall. There is a little bit of a problem with the word count, but not enough to cause the issue to fail. In the end this is an intriguing example of a comic straddling the line between good and bad taste.

2. Spider-Gwen #1 (2015) is very accessible for new readers. Also it has strong characterization in the dialogue and art.

3. Princess Leia #1 circa 2015 is a good take on the Star Wars character. Perfect for teens, though I am not sure if the following issues are suitable for tweens.

4. Silk #1 from 2015 is not entirely accessible to oncoming readers. However the first issue is decent and can be picked up in a one dollar price range thanks to Marvel's 'True Believers' initiative. This is another good read for teens.

Zodiac Starforce Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    The cover is more Scooby-Doo horror versus magical girl in what it suggests about the interior story. This being said I think this issue is much better paced and written than the first one. I especially like how there is room to breathe and take in the characters personalities. Also where issue one felt like an info dump this feels like a book worth collecting. Another reason I liked this issue is the Sailor Moon reference hidden in the beautiful interior art. Finally the fact that it has strong and diverse looking females leads.

    My verdict: recommended, though not for bigots!

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 What The Grodd Rogue Edition

1. The Flash #155 (1965) is hindered from being a good story by the gorilla segments. Also the fact Flash suddenly has the ability to see radiation when that has nothing to do with super-speed or control of his molecules.

2. Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier #11 (2015) This issue solidifies that this whole series is a waste of money. It doesn't even have a story that makes sense. Also it leaves too many questions in the air. Finally one would need to have read all the previous issues in order to understand any of the events in this issue.

3. Sonic The Hedgehog #276 (2015) just feels like a filler issue. Not to mention that both stories end very abruptly.

4. Faster Than Light #1 (2015) is slowly paced and has too much filler mixed with the set-up of the main plot. The art, while realistic, is too similar to a storyboard and thus it lacks the illusion of kinetic motion.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 34

   After I get done with this post I will never talk about the original English dub of this episode again. It's just so stupid! I mean the Japanese dub at least made sense, even with the lousy droid/monster and the barely there plot. The original English dub on the other hand is edited to garbage level and the script is just...Insert screaming and cursing while crying. Finally I only have one question: if Usagi is such a bad student does that mean Ami and Mamoru actually run the future Crystal Tokyo?

Book Of Death The Fall Of Harbinger Issue 1 Day Of Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   If you don't want to know the possible future for Faith or the other Harbinger characters than avoid this book! On the other hand it is an extremely recommended book due to the thoughts and emotions it provokes in its readers. Heck I almost cried while reading this comic. It is not just the character deaths or how beautiful the art is, but the profound thought put in to all of this comic. I would rate this up there with the last Doctor Who Christmas special to star Matt Smith, because one truly feels the sadness of knowing the end approaches. Just a beautiful, brilliant, and award worthy comic!

The Paybacks Issue 2 Advance Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  I recommend this awesome book due to the amazing creative team. Also I am loving all the references they throw, including the ones that they have to be careful about. Speaking of references another character Donny Cates worked on at Dark Horse appears for a few panels in this issue. Regarding panel structure I have to say the creative team has hit the mark again for a perfect composition. Said structure also greatly evens out the pace for the comedic visuals to truly hit their marks. Finally I am loving the rate of questions and answers that are being given to the reader. This set-up of a nice a-b-c-d kind of plotting is working well for the book and I hope the creative team can keep it up.
