Who is your favorite character and why?
Thor and FOR ONE REASON ONLY… He can out drink Wolverine lol.
Spider-Man has always been my favorite character and not just because we share the same first name, but because when I was growing up I felt Parker’s personality was similar to my own: nerdish; shy; socially awkward. However, I wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider, so I got to live vicariously through Spidey’s exploits and character-building adventures. All of which helped me become the father, husband, teacher/librarian, that I am today.
Doctor Strange cuz magic is cool and he sports a sexier goatee than Tony Stark.
Harley Quinn but mainly for the batman animated series. I like to think I’m a huge collector of Harley. As for comics I have to go with the punisher. Even though I dont agree with how he handles things but by far my favorite comicbook character loving his war of the realms tie ins.
Daredevil for sure. He is a tormented soul who continually struggles with the pursuit of good versus evil. He views justice as very clear cut in a very confused world of Hell’s Kitchen.
Captain America, because he’s the moral compass of the Marvel universe and represents the very best of us.
Comic conventions are a great way to see some great art, pick up rare comics and collectibles, and check out some awesome costumes. Have you been to one? If so, share your favorite in the comments section!

The Fantastic Four. It’s got the excitement of an adventure series. It’s got the Crazy Comic Sci-Fi side of it. But most importantly, it’s got compelling characters. With a good writer behind the wheel, Fantastic Four is about as good as it gets.
Art is what makes comics comics, and between original pages, prints, and other items, there are all kinds of ways to get a piece of the action. Do you own any comic art? If so, share what you have in the comments section!
It is Avengers #143. It was the first issue of Avengers that I bought. My copy is signed by George Perez too. This is followed closely with captain America #106 signed by the King, Jack Kirby.
Deadpool #11 from Joe Kelly’s character-defining run in the late 90s. Deadpool travels back in time and they basically spliced/redrew him into an old issue of Amazing Spider-Man. Completely sold me on the character, and got me into comics as a whole.

My most prized book is my Hulk 181 signed by Stan,Len,Herb and John.
Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and[...]

New Release Pick of the Week
ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)
(W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora
When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.
Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!
