Hello True Belivers (to quote Stan the Man). Let's talk about anything comic related. Movies, Music, TV you name it..

Iron Man Cartoon on Hasbro site.

Posted By IaBlMeanie on May 8, 2008 at 9:09PM

This came out last year as part of of their "brain washing" of children as to why they need iron man toys when they haven't seen the movie yet and don't know who Iron Man is.
It's a 3 part cartoon that is better than some of the stuff they put on TV!! Great fun for kids and grown up kids too. I just wish they would make something like this into a full length movie.

I can't add them to the site but here's the link.

Theater Hopper -Comics about movies

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Apr 4, 2008 at 10:58PM

This is a strip created by a movie fan. He's been doing this for going on 4 years now and he's selfpublished the first 2 years worth. That's quite an accomplishment in comics, it's one thing to do your own site, it's another to get people to give you money for it.
Anyone can read these, they are usually movie related and when big events come around like the Oscars he has several strips. His wife Cami and his friends are the main cast with special apperances by those in the movie industry.

I like how he works in the movie theater as one of his main places where the strips take place. He usually has the movie posters in the back ground which I think is neat. Here are a few of my favorite strips, by the way he happens to live in the same town as me, we both hate the evil movietheater chain and so some of these strips are personal pet peeves of Tom's we can all relate.. Check out a few of his strips below and then check out his site at http://www.theaterhopper.com

It's worth adding to your favorites!

One line comic reviews

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Mar 8, 2008 at 8:04AM

Sorry I haven't posted very much, I am getting ready for the I-Con. It's the only comic book convention in Iowa and since I am an officer and comic crazy person I am getting ready for the big event in May!

What I am planning is to try to post about a free online comic at least once a week. I read about 10 of these every day and
they are a great way to kick off your morning. Many of you got my post about waterboarding so I am going to start off with Socks and Barney.

The cast is all animals, the pets of political people. Some are real pets, rest are creations of the writer, they all hang out in a bar and watch politics on TV or read it in the paper.
You get firsthand accounts from the animals who take the political agenda of their owners.

If you’re interested in politics but don't want to read every comment posted on line and in the news this is a refreshing way to get a bit of information. So far the Waterboarding strip has been my favorite and of course the ones he did about the Iowa Caucuses. As I live in Iowa and was in the middle of the madness I really liked those strips too.

So take a break today and check out his site, please pass this information along to your politically minded friends.
Can never have too many political cartoons!

Last Kiss Comics

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Feb 17, 2008 at 10:40AM

Once upon a time Romance comics were the biggest selling books in the industry. More than superhero’s, war or adventure books –COMBINED!!
That’s a lot of comics.. Today they are pretty much non existence in the U.S. there are some books that are picking up on more of the relationships angle but mostly
Were lacking in that area. At least we have the back issues for those who collect and they are just as valuable as any other comic.
Which brings us to this online comic which is a bit of the old and the new with a twist.

Back in the 80’s John bought the rights to this series called Last Kiss for $400.00. He took the art and made his own dialogue to go along with the pictures.
Now Last Kiss is published in the Seattle Times and online for your viewing pleasure.

Hard to believe these are written by a man! Very funny, usually told from the woman’s point of view, using current topics of love and romance.
You can check them out on his site and even sign up for them to be sent to you directly. Each comic has new “story” , mostly one liner jokes.
The art is the original from the books, this probably won’t mean much to the you. Some of these artists went on to DC & Marvel to create some of the most memorable art and they are known to the comic book community on a last name basis as in the legend, like Giordano (trust me this means something to comic people).

You don’t have to be a comic geek to enjoy these, just read them and enjoy the wackiness and some of them might sound like a date or two you have had..

Superhero Movie

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Feb 16, 2008 at 10:40AM

This is a parody coming out in a few months, it mainly uses the first spiderman movie from what I see in the preview.
Looks very funny, might be a bit too much. You see the main charater get hit by school bus 3 times, I think twice would have been more than enought.
Here's the link, check it out. Do you think you'll see this in the theater or wait until DVD?

Help me find a Spiderman Lawn statue for Christmas

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Nov 12, 2007 at 9:37PM

I must have this for my yard and to loan to my buddies who own comic book stores. I also have a friend here locally who is spiderman for Marvel Apperances Inc. and he must have one too.

If anyone sees these in their town please email me. I can't find it on line, but I'll keep trying!!

Have you see this???Have you see this???

I added more pictures

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Nov 11, 2007 at 7:47PM

There's some new pictures in my superhero photo album from fall con.
Had a really good time and didn't get picture of everyone there in costume but I did get a few of the ones I really liked
Wish I had gotten a picture of the Green Lanter guy, he was very nice.
His mommie made his costume :-)
Super Mommie!
Best thing was that the artist who created my favorite Wonder Woman picture was there and I bought a copy from him.

Tomb Raider Cartoons

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Oct 21, 2007 at 9:07PM


If you like the Tomb Raider Movies these are a lot of fun. Very well written short cartoons (less than 10 mintues each) and the art is unique to each episode. Many of them were written by well known comic book artits like Gail Simone and Warren Ellis. My favoirte is little Lady Lara, about her childhood and of course treasure!
Worth watching,them all and go back as they have more coming out. I am not a big gammer but Lara has some good comic and I would love to see more animated movies like this.

These came out as part of the anniversary of the game, so if you know someone who likes to play them I'd give it a try.

30 Days Of Night

Posted By IaBlMeanie on Oct 19, 2007 at 9:54PM

30 Days of Night - Seventh Printing
Offical Description of this comic:
The story of an isolated Alaskan town that is plunged into darkness for a month each year when the sun sinks below the horizon. As the last rays of light fade, the town is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires bent on an uninterrupted orgy of destruction. Only the small town's husband-and-wife Sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction.

This is a great "modern" vampire story. I love the idea and I am so glad that it's out as a movie now. There are a lot of Vampire/Zomibe books out right now but this is one of them that started it all. Worth a read, plus there are several additional stories since the orignal came out.
