    Spider-Man reaches #600 Hero Initiative celebrates

    Amazing Spider-Man has reached its milestone 600th issue! That’s alot of Spidey. To celebrate, San Francisco’s Comic Outpost is holding a Spider-Man anniversary party on Wednesday, July 22. Comic Outpost has constructed a wall of all 600 issues of Amazing Spider-Man going back to issue #1 from 1963. It is probably an amazing site to take in. There will be raffles for signed books and a genuine chainsaw prop from Doctor Octopus emergency room scene in the Spider-Man 2 movie. “Way back in the early ’70s, my mother bought me my first comic, Marvel Team-Up #42, featuring Spider-Man and Vision. From that point I was hooked!” said Comic Outpost owner Gary Buechler. “Through the years, I’ve put together a full run of Amazing Spider-Man and it’s a kick to be able to display it in my own store! It’s an honor and a duty to help give back to all

    Honey and Clover (film) Review

    Title: Honey and Clover (film) Language: Japanese Subtitles: yes (English) Number of Discs: 1 Runtime: 116 minutes Sometimes it’s good to go through your closet once in a while and pick up something totally different that you probably never got a chance to watch. This is fun especially if the film is good. Honey and Clover is that type of film. I have never seen the anime or read the manga so it was a totally fresh idea and I was completely blind to the story. It’s a good thing that I hadn’t seen the anime or read the manga, I really enjoyed the film. Plot Summary: The plot is simple. This is a story about five art school students that are just trying to find their way. They get lost in the progress and that is what makes life fun. It’s a movie about living and learning. It also

    First Look: National Card Hockey League

    So, National Card Hockey League is a card game, sort of like the old “War” card game we’ve all played at some point or another.  However, this version of the game, takes another twist by letting you choose a NHL team to represent and game to play against.  Game play is in quarters, just like a hockey game, and you play your cards (players) using the player’s jersey number to match cards placed by your opponent.  If you’re a fan of quick card games to play online, or games that incorporate hockey themes, this will definitely be one to keep an eye out for  Since the game is still in development, there were several things that I saw that may be improved before you get to see the game.  The graphics are still unpolished, but I’ve been told that when a final product is released that the graphics will match
