The Society of unordinary Young Ladies

If you are looking for a new take of your favorite sitcoms, then you might enjoy The Society of unordinary Young Ladies. The first five issues are available of this spin on Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I have yet to read all the issues but I like what I have read so far.

Book Review: Spider-Man and Fantastic Four: Wreckage

Spider-Man and Fantastic Four: Wreckage (Boulevard/Bryon Priess, November 1997) by Eric Fein and Pierce Askegren is the third and final book in the Doom's Day trilogy. Five big black robots breaks Doctor Octopus out of prison and five more steal his tentacles, which are held elsewhere. Peter Parker aka is married to Mary Jane and investigates the break out. SAFE enlists the help of Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic to study one of the robots. The robots are based on ones used by Hydra but the weaponry is so advanced that only Doctor Doom could have sent them. Doom forces Octopus to work on a device that will harness the energy from the Negative Zone and that means sneaking into the home of the Fantastic Four.

I finished reading Spider-Man and Fantastic Four: Wreckage a few nights ago and I found it slow at first but picks up quickly. I have not read the first two books in the trilogy but there is enough explanation of what went on before that this book can be read without having to read the other two books. The ending was predictable but the epilogue made up for it. Overall, I give the book a solid B.

Goodnight Joe Kubert

Comic legend, Joe Kubert has passed away at the age of eighty-five according to Newsarma. Not a bad run for someone who started drawing comic books professionally at the age of twelve and was still working.

Matchbox Batmobile

I always check the Hot Wheels at the local Wal-Mart Super Center whenever I am there but they were pretty bare this morning. I decided to check the Matchbox section, which covers three pegs as opposed to twenty for Hot Wheels (this does not count the special editions and multi packs). I thought I was seeing things when I noticed a metallic blue Batmobile. I picked it up and read the back to make sure it was the real thing. It was so I purchased it since the price was still ninety-seven cents.
Matchbox Batmobile
This MBX City Batmobile is twenty-five of one hundred twenty.

The back states the following: "There's adventure around every corner in Gotham City! With the help of Batman in the unstoppable Batmobile, police cruisers foil the plots of bad guys while rescue vehicles keep a vigilant eye on the City. And while citizens hustle to stores, schools and skyscapers, trucks are busy transporting vital supplies in and out of downtown."
