Inception Ripped Off Uncle Scrooge!


I don’t typically do this sort of post (maybe I should though) but I found this so much fun to read over that I thought I would share.  Uncle Scrooge, Donald Duck, and all of them Disney based Ducks were some of my favorite characters  when I was little, including back in the days of the Duck Tales cartoon.

So anyway, the website Cracked has a list of “5 Amazing Things Invented by Donald Duck” and the first on their list at #5 is that basically, the concept of the movie Inception is “coincidently” a decent rip off of a story from a 2002 Scrooge McDuck comic!  Surprised smile I know!

Included in this list is also Indian Jones, actual scientific discoveries, and Astro Boy.  Ultimately though, what you should take away from the list is that there is obviously a hidden cover-up to hide the truth, that Donald Duck is the single most important individual in the last century, and that hiding in Mickey Mouse’s shadow is simply his cover.  (My opinions, maybe not yours)

To check out the pretty cool list, along with a bunch of other neat lists they’ve put together throughout the site, click here.

**I want to thank my buddy Daniel Morgan for bringing this to my attention

Spoilers: Who is the NEW Venom?


In an interview that Newsarama posted today that they conducted with Rick Remender and Marvel senior editor Steve Wacker, its revealed that Venom’s new how will be (highlight) Flash Thompson!  Guess if its true and not a red herring, we’ll be seeing how it plays out soon enough!  My only hesitation is that in the one cover we’ve seen, the hidden person is standing, while most will know that Flash is currently a double amputee.  Guess its possible that with the symbiote he regains his legs in some fashion?

Check out the full article and interview at Newsarama plus some new interior pages here.

Late night surfing gold–Springfield Punx


Image4In the latest of my late night, insomnia educed web surfing, I have come across a site of gold that has been under my nose until now, and I had to share and bring attention to it!!

Springfield Punx is described as the following by the author and artist “Dean”

Springfield Punx is a little pet project of mine. The idea of doing fan art parodying some of my favorite characters and stars in such a fun and simple style got me hooked immediately.

Sounds pretty sweet, right?  Well let me tell you friends, it is!  In just some quick surfing, I found some of my favorite, that have been highlighted here on this site before.

We have, The Doctor, Craig Ferguson, and Spider-man!  Its like the Simpsonification of Geekasms.com itself!

Corruption of the young…with Wonder Woman #600


So my 8 year old has currently been asking questions regarding collecting.  She wants to collect something, she’s wanting to make something her own.  Basically she’s trying to find who she is and develop her own identity, but currently has trouble letting go of the desire to make everyone around her happy with her.  Well the other day, she just randomly starting sorting through some of my old comic books I have up stairs.  Now first off, you have to understand I used to be a HUGE comic geek back in the day, I mean huge!  Was a heavy collector of all things Spider-man, well before the movies, and I had a great collection too, unfortunately I really don’t have any of it left, through circumstances I’m not proud of at all.  Anyway, she started asking question, like how long did I buy them, where did I buy them, etc. and actually sat down and started reading an issue of JLA.

Well today, I did something that gave me a small spark of pride, and a large chunk of questioning motives.  Fortunately my job takes me many places throughout the state, and when coming home, I was able to pass what used to be my main stop for all things comics back in the day in Somerset, Ky.  The store is Collector’s Comics, and fortunately for myself, the place was still there.  Well I walked in with the determination to find 2-3 comics that would give a good range of what my 8 year old might or might not enjoy reading and/or collecting.  A task that I found was not as smooth and easy as I had hoped, as I found out, and explained to the man working the store, its not that easy to shop for comics for someone else!!

So after much browsing and fighting the urge to buy a large group of books for myself,perez600 I came away with 3, those being Tiny Titans, the current Supergirl (#54 I believe) and the recently released Wonder Woman #600.  I had already read WW through a different means, so I knew the issue, not only being a starting point for a story for her, but also gave her a few separate stories she could read and get a feel for how comics are.

Where this will lead, I have no clue as she hasn’t sat down to read any yet, but already has one of my unused bags and boards to place her WW #600 in once she’s completed with it, and she already plans on going through my books and pulling ones she’d like to look at.  So either I will soon have what will be an avid comic fan (and my new excuse for running to the local store on Weds) or this will be a phase that burns out as quickly as it was ignited.  Only time will tell, so we can only sit back and wait (and read the news headlines coming in from SDCC)
