By far Valiant Comics is my favorite comic book universe. It’s a universe that feels very adult. The art is simply amazing! It blows away the art found in the “big 2” comic universes. The writing is also top notch in comparison to the “big 2” also. My favorite character is Ninjak (an MI6 Ninja). Think Tony Stark meets Bruce Wayne, but so much more compelling. Then there is Rai. Rai lives in 4001 on a massive city satellite called New Japan. Then you have awesome characters like X-O Manowar (Think Thor with alien Iron Man armor), Livewire, and the Eternal Warrior. As far as groups, you have to read everything to do with Harbinger. The story of psiots and the greatest villain, living between shades of gray, called Toyo Harada. Out of Harbinger you get Faith, who has her own series which is a bit lighter but chalk full or geek culture and pop culture references. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. Oh… and look for the coming Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe webisodes coming in November!!!
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has become an event in our house. You pop the cork on a Game of Thrones beer, pour it into your Game of Thrones glass, and enjoy the new episode on Sunday nights. Football Sunday? Nope. Game of Thrones Sunday. We watch it though the Amazon Channels HBO app on Fire TV. It’s an add on channel but you can watch it LIVE and not have to have cable. When this season is over it is going to be so hard to wait for the final season… let alone the wait for the next book. I’m reading the books right now and they are written superbly. Game of Thrones is worth all of the accolades that it gets.
Blood Drive (SYFY)
Blood Drive is one of the best shows on TV just because it is so non-PC. It probably offends little snowflake SJW’s every time it comes on the air. SYFY even lets the “F” word fly when they broadcast it. When you are talking “edgy” this is Grindhouse exploitation edgy. SYFY should be commended for being brave enough to air it. Watch it, Love it, Enjoy it!!!
