Wowie, wow, wow, wow! Creating videos is hard work! This one took longer than I hoped, and it was aided by the fact that I started to do a little bit more writing for Anititcool.com. You can swing by there and read some of my, “This Week in Comics” articles. That, plus preschools being closed just makes my spare time disappear before I know I have it!

Anyway, this video is about DC Comics- my first comicbook love. DC’s, and comics in general’s best decades were the 40’s, 60’s and 80’s. So this video is about the Top Ten stuff DC published in the 1980’s. I gotta say, it was pretty hard coming up with the list. DC just put out so much good stuff that decade. It probably didn’t help that, that was also the time I started reading comics! I got a few subscriptions for Christmas gifts (FF and Marvel Team-Up), started using my allowance on buying Justice League of America and others at the grocery store, and eventually convinced by parents and older brother and sister to drive me to a comicbook store once a month! That turned weekly once I was able to drive. To date myself, one of my first comics bought at the comicbook store was Blue Devil #1 (I somehow thought that series was going to follow me all the way up today! Little did I know back then how fast things would get canceled!). But still 80’s was a great time, beyond my personal connection. Aside from the top ten list, I have 24 items in the Honor Mentions section! So I tell you honestly, I can’t wait to hear your complaints about this list. Because just about everything DC was doing at this time was so good! So have at it and enjoy, and I’ll see ya next time.

So this just a fun short one talking about Wonder Woman wardrobe. To steal a joke from Svengoolie: “You’d like to see more of Wonder Woman on TV? So would I, but that’s as small as the censor’s will allow her costume to be.” But seriously, this was something I found / figured out a long while ago and always wanted to talk about. So I’m happy to get to it, even if it is rather trivial. Because nearly every well versed person in comicbooks will tell you Wonder Woman used to wear a skirt. Just like Captain America’s shield wasn’t originally round. But here’s the thing, while yes Cap’s shield wasn’t always round, Wonder Woman never wore a skirt! Crazy right? Well it’s all about culottes. What’s a culotte? Watch the video and find out. I didn’t spend all this time putting the video together to just spoil the lead!

On a more human note, I know we are all dealing with ‘the’ corvid-19, and I sure hope it isn’t affecting you more than just sheltering in place! I hope you have managed to keep you income and that no one you know has actually been hit by the virus. But if that’s not the case, all I can say is: That sucks @$$. And I pray that our nation (or your nation, if you aren’t from around here) will only get stronger when it’s over. In how we deal with pandemics, to how we deal with the sick and in how we deal with people’s livelihood. Often times I think we makes things harder than they need to be, for fear of doing the wrong thing. And that often turns into the worst thing to do. So, good luck and if you pardon me, God bless. I hope to see you in better times soon!

Our latest video is up! Superhero-pow goes over every superhero team, to see which one of them could actually beat the world’s greatest superheroes, the Justice League (of America)!

And I gotta say, this was a bear to put together! More images in this one than any other video. Let’s just say I’m glad it’s done!

Well let’s see, it’s been about a year since some meaningful content- so here is a new video series I’m kicking off! SUPERHERO-POW! Where I talk about everything I love: superheroes and cartoons! Starting things off is the first solo female superhero movie, starring Audrey Hepburn! You read that right. Now watch the video to see how it’s true!

shehulk_wonderwomannovachococatHey party people,

 

Got an update from my sketch books.  First and old one featuring a color pencil sketches of the powerful ladies of comics, She-Hulk and Wonder Woman.  Next is new one, of one of my favorite Marvel superheroes, Nova!  And that would be Rich Rider there, not the new kid.  Lastly, my wife loves all things Hello Kitty.  And we are both fond of Chococat, so every so often I will sketch some Chococat for her.  Here he is hanging out with Ding-Dong, aka Doraemon.  You see, my wife is from Hong Kong, and over there Doraemon was renamed Ding-Dong.  So if I can call Go Mifune Speed Racer, she can call Doraemon Ding-Dong.  Hope you like ‘em.
