"12 Drummers Drumming"
Featuring The Drummer from Planetary


A holiday return

So, I haven't blogged in ages. I've been busy with blah blah blah. That and I'm getting deployed soon. Thus, sometime soon, The Nerd Alert will be in hiatus. But, until then, I'm gonna try and pump out as much nerdadelic goodness as possible.

To treat everyone for me being gone so long, from now until Xmas, I'm gonna present "The Toof's 12 Days of Nerd Christmas". Enjoy!

Comics fo' yo' face: Oct 28 '09

- So, the final issue of "Ignition City" hit the stands. Hilarity ensued.

- "The Incredible Hercules" #137 followed up with Amadeus Cho in his search for his sister. This episode reveals the truth about his parents' deaths. This issue also has a showdown of the minds and reminds me why I love this comic so much. Actually, I never forget why I read the comic.

- In other news, I finally caught up with "Agents of Atlas" in the latest issue/crossover "Agents of Atlas vs X-Men". After Jimmy Woo resolved the bad-ass dispute (where M-11 whupped a more advanced robot by using literal Muhammed Ali arrogance) between Atlas and the Jade Dragon, the group goes up against the X-Men on their brand-new home turf, Utopia. For those of you that don't know anything about Atlas, well, here is a one panel rundown:

Go read comics fo' yo' self now!

X-Factor: Did I write this?

Peter David, author of the final volumes of "Captain Marvel" (which I swear is the funniest cosmic comedy before "The Guardians of the Galaxy") has hit my heartstrings with his run on X-Factor. I think that Peter David is writing the story of my life, though...

Exhibit A: Internet Habits

Exhibit B: Sex Appeal

Exhibit C: Favorite People, RE: Vampire Slayers

Exhibit D: My Arrogance

Exhibit E: Uh, My Time Traveling Woes

My Zombieland Review

I just finished watching the Americn version of "Shawn Of The Dead" "Zombieland". Fuck it, since nobody else seems to be saying it, I'll say it:

All Hype.

Catching Up: The Atomic Robo Edition

I am catching up on the awesome Atomic Robo comic. It is about a robot that was created by Nikolai Tesla and has been around since the 20's. Think Hellboy, but instead a robot. Why do I like this comic book?

Crossed #7: They take the offensive


Crossed #7 has the humans being tracked by the Crossed people. They start to realize that they have been tracked by the same group that they escaped from in the city a few issues ago. Patrick (the kid in the story) gets separated from the group.

In one of the most disturbing comic books I have ever read, this is probably the most inspiring issue yet. I'm quite positive that is the most I'll be getting as far as optimism for the main cast for the rest of the story. When the crew finds Patrick being chased by the Crossed, they all lose any sense of self-preservation in order to get Patrick back. Since the beginning of the story, they have always been on the run and this issue shows the first time they take the offense. FYI, the look on Cindy's face when she does what she has to do was the most fucked up piece of artwork in the whole series. That's saying alot, especially in reference to a comic book that had psychotic freaks jerking off into a bowl so their dad-paste covered bullets could infect others when they shot them.

The series is winding down to a close and though it is quite a fucked up read, I'm truly going to miss it. There are few post-apocalyptic comic books that are worth a damn in my book and this one is probably on my top five list.

Planetary: Epilogue

I'm not going to fuck up the final issue of Warren Ellis's by making my usual bad jokes. I do want to say though that it was the perfect comic book ending to a perfect comic book. Planetary is officially this generation's "The Sandman".
