#5. Comics -- Billy Ray Cyrus, 1995

There have been a number of strange celebrity comic books and bizarre crossovers. For 18 years, Bob Hope had a comic about sexually assaulting women; Eminem the rapper beat the crap out of the Punisher; and Jay Leno once helped Spider-Man defeat ninjas. They all pale in comparison to the Billy Ray Cyrus comic from the Marvel Music line.

Pretty nice.

Something that showed up on my Twitter.  Check out the whole thing here.

When momma said to knock you out, we’re here to comply–and so is Robt Seda-Schreiber, an artist and middle school art teacher from New Jersey. In today’s edition of Shelf Porn, Robt shares his collection of toys, action figures, comic books and graphic novels, as well as a look at his drawing area.

Cyclops is a whiny bitch.

I actually like Cyclops.

Is it a vase or an old woman?


Arrow (TV Series) Ep. 102

Series: Arrow

Episode: 102, Honor Thy Father

Rating: 4 out 5 billionaire playboys turned vigilante arrow slingers

Review:  First off I don't intend to review EVERY episode of Arrow but after watching this weeks episode I wanted to comment on a few things.  In pretty much every way this episode is better than the pilot.  We get more time with Detective Lance and Dinah Lance and they really deliver on their characters.  They manage to make Dinah a relevant character again after pretty much neutering her in the pilot.  It could be argued that the sudden change that bring Dinah back as a love interest is a result of sloppy writing and an attempt on the part of the writers to unwrite the corner they wrote themselves into.  But the way they bring about the change makes sense both in the context of the story and in the context of the character.  Plus I'm just happy that they made her relevant and she wasn't going to be this barnacle of a character holding on to the show because they may need her later or because fans want someone with Black Canary's name.

  The episode really gels and is fun to watch.  The action is good, Oliver becomes more interesting and we see him kick a huge amount of ass.  We get a super villain (in the form of China White, I believe).  We see the return of the trick arrow.  Pretty much everything that was missing from the pilot was here in this episode.  It had that "thing" that was missing from the pilot.  This made me want to break out the action figures and boot up Justice League: Heroes on PS2 so I could play as Green Arrow.  This episode made me excited about the character and really excited about the future of the show.  The last 20 minutes are the best.  Oliver Queen makes an awesome speech trying to destroy his own legacy and another shock ending.  Plus the next episode preview shows Deadshot!  If you didn't like the pilot you might want to give the show another shot.

Arrow (2012) TV Series

Rating: 3 out of 5 arrows to the knee which stopped you from being an adventurer like me

Review:  Well, they got me.  They hooked me into seeing where they're going with this thing.  The strong cast really makes the premise soar in the new series on the CW.  I wasn't really expecting too much, superhero TV series have a pretty poor track record.  Not really a track record of being bad, more like a track record of mediocrity but this was anything but mediocre.  That being said it still only gets a solid 3 out 5.

I always carry a hammer in my pants...

The Daly show with Tim Daly and his son Sam, the whole series is hilarious and something I was happy to come across.  But this one in particular is my favorite.  You have the definitive voice of Superman with the voice of Green Lantern and the definitive voice of the Flash.  It's pretty awesome.  The only thing that would make it better is Kevin Conroy.
