SOMEONE IS GOING TO DIE!

FANTASTIC FOUR #587 will bring about the death of one member of Marvel's first family! Will it be The Thing? The Invisible Woman? The Human Torch? Mr. Fantastic? Find out in this issue!


Almost 50 years after their first appearance in Fantastic Four #1, one of these characters will not make it out of the "Countdown To Casualty" story-line which at it's end will also end the Fantastic Four title. Later the title will relaunch as FF.

This issue will be released in January, will be sealed in a BLACK POLYBAG, and will NOT BE OVERPRINTED. FANTASTIC FOUR #587 will not be sent to newsstands, so you will only be able to pick up this issue at your favorite funny book shop. This issue will sell out fast so order yours today!


PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY BY SATURDAY JANUARY 1st TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR THIS ISSUE!
Call (814) 539-0085 or e-mail bwilt@hotmail.com !....sorry I don't mean to yell, I'm just excited.

MORGAN'S KIDNEY!

Like art? Me neither! But, good friend Morgan Davis is giving up her Kidney to her friend in an amazingly selfless act and to help off set the expensive costs of lost work and recovery time she is having an art contest! Click on the title above to go to her facebook page and for only $1.00 you get to vote on your favorite image! This is what I've submitted...

I figured it best to stay on the good side of someone so willing to give up body parts as I'm sure that I will eventually need a new liver from all the drinkin'. Good luck, Morgan!

COSTUME CONTEST WINNERS!

After hours and hours of tallying your votes, the winners of this year's MONTH LONG HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST are.....drumroll please.....for first place.....I SAID DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!.....first place for the mad phat 25 DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE goes to THE RIDDLER! (insert round of applause here)

Second place for the $15 DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE goes to WHIPLASH!

Third place for the $10 DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE goes to RAVEN SHOT DOWN BY PAINTBALLS, BUT since she just takes whatever she wants from the store anyway, she graciously forfeited her prize to FLO!

So FLO is the proud recipient of third place's $10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!

This year everyone is a winner (except for me because apparently Raven Shot Down By Paintballs has a five finger discount)! Thanks to everyone who participated! You have one year to get to work on costumes for next year.

X-FORCE SEX AND VIOLENCE!

Always a sucker for a good Wolverine story (which painfully is kind of hard to come by), X-FORCE SEX AND VIOLENCE #1 seems to be off to a good start.  Domino not being much of a damsel in distress reluctantly accepts the help of Wolverine when an old job with the Assassin's Guild comes back to haunt her.  Featuring fully painted artwork by Gabriele Dell'Otto this reminded me of the still classic Meltdown series from Epic years ago.  Vicious and bloody right from the get go and playing off the sexual tension between Domino and Wolverine, I recommend this 3 issue limited series.  Let's hope the two issues that follow are just as good.

DEFENDOR!!

  I expected this to just be a quirky movie about a guy with some issues who takes it upon himself to battle against the evil "Captain Industry".  I didn't think it looked great, just an indy movie where I'd get a couple cheap laughs as Woody Harrelson cheesed up
a goofy character who thinks he's a super hero. 

And to my amazement, this wasn't that at all. 

Much darker in tone than I expected, this movie takes itself pretty seriously.  The motivations of Defendor and the actual feel of the entire movie has a lot more weight to it than what any of the trailers I had seen let on.  Damaged characters well acted by an excellent cast, a few nods to the super hero genre,  and a really solid story.
Give it a shot.
