I don’t know that I can say I’ve ever been a big fan of She-Hulk, but then again, until relatively recently, I haven’t been much of a fan of the various Hulk series either. Big green rage monsters aren’t really my thing, even when they maintain their intelligence like She-Hulk does. But, given that I’ve enjoyed some of the recent Hulk offerings, I decided to give Jennifer Walters a shot in her solo series.
So let’s see what Marvel has to offer in the first six issues of She-Hulk.

Since I still have no time to do full reviews of all the shows I watch in a week, heck I hardly have time to watch them all, I thought I’d do a look at one show that’s new to the list, in fact one that I don’t think I ever did a review of in the regular weekly wrap-up, and see what I think of it. This week, for TV Thursday – 12/11/14, that show is Constantine.

Let’s be honest, this is not Ghost Rider. It’s not even close. Anything and everything that made the original Ghost Rider great is not in this book. This is it’s own thing and really shouldn’t even be called Ghost Rider. So please disavow yourselves of any thinking that this has anything to do with Johnny Blaze or motorcycles or anything of the sort. Of course, this is hardly the first time Marvel gave this kind of a shot, last time they tried replacing Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch with a female version and that one got canned almost instantly. So, does this new version hold up? Let’s see.

After looking through an old issue of an anime magazine, I decided to throw in a classic, the movie adaptation of the 1967 tokusatsu series Giant Robo, known in the U.S. as Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot. The movie, known as Voyage into Space, is a compilation of the entire 26-episode series and tracks Johnny Sokko as he becomes controller of a giant atomic powered robot, joins the super-secret organization Unicorn and defeats Emperor Guillotine and his evil Gargoyle Gang.
Join me now for a look into yesterday. Giant Robot go!

Another day, another Deadpool mini, these things are everywhere and they’re not even being treated like special events anymore, one ends, another begins.
This time out, Deadpool travels through time, trying to change history while X-Force tries to stop him. It’s a romp through the American Revolution and beyond. Let’s take a look at Deadpool vs. X-Force.

I’ve probably played most of the major Lego games that have ever been made, it’s something my wife and I can sit down and play together and generally enjoy but, to be honest, Lego games have a lot of problems that never seem to get fixed and I, for one, am really getting tired of being frustrated by the games and am considering calling a moratorium.

Since I do read a couple of stamp forums, I get to see some crazy stuff. In Australia, the post office is shutting down public mailboxes that receive less than 25 letters in them per day because it just makes no financial sense to send someone around to pick up a couple of things a day. All of a sudden, Australian stamp collectors (and probably others) are up in arms because they want the mailboxes to stay, out of tradition more than anything else.
Some of these people just don’t get how businesses operate.
