1st plug…

I forgot to mention last week to get ready for Free Comic Book Day on May 1, 2010.

“Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores.”

So next year marked your calenders for May 2011.

I picked up some free comics, and caught up on some comics that went to the wayside.  Good times all around.

Egads moments:

The Flash #1, Barry Allen is back with “The Brightest Day.”

Invincible #71 Part one of the Viltumite War.

The New Avengers #64, Siege tie-in.

Notes from the Manager

“After How to Train Your Dragon had been out for a couple of weeks, all the glowing reviews finally got me to check the movie out. It wasn’t that I didn’t think it would be good; I just didn’t expect it to be very good. I mean… it’s Dreamworks Animation. I love (and own) Kung Fu Panda, but every other movie of theirs I’ve seen has just been pretty good — at best — just barely worth watching, nevermind buying on DVD.

To my surprise, I didn’t just think How to Train Your Dragon was a good cartoon. I flat-out loved it. Yet to say that How to Train Your Dragon is Dreamworks Animation’s best movie doesn’t even begin to explain how much I love it. It — like my favorite Pixar movie, The Incredibles; and only a handful of others — is what I consider to be a perfect movie.”

DGC commentary

Note in panels 5 – 9 are similar experiences I had seeing animated films The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Tokyo Godfathers, Mononoke-hime (Princess Mononoke), and Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi (Spirited Away) to name a few.  Or maybe I said too much?  If we’re happen to be watching this movie and I am having the same experience please, please reserve all commitments until we’re outside the theater because of any negative comments might have me doing the same thing Jason Atwood does in panel 10.
