For five years, we have covered the comics and toy industry, but the costs are catching up with us. Relying on advertising helps with some costs, but as we advance more and more, the amount of advertising we would need to fulfill our goal of spreading the love of collecting comics and toys becomes more than a site could handle and remain uncluttered, not to mention free of influence. That is why we are launching a Patreon for your assistance in funding our efforts.
Calexit by Black Mask is a really intriguing comic addressing a lot of current tensions surrounding the political climate. It sets it in the near future if things take a turn for the worst. This year, at SDCC, they're putting their efforts to a good cause by supporting Immigrant Families at the border, separated by a zero-tolerance policy towards undocumented immigration. Here's the full press release from Black Mask.

It's really sad when I want to review an old Marvel comic like The Eternals and I can't use my Marvel Unlimited membership. I wanted to review this from the first time I read it and saw that it drew inspiration from Erich von Däniken's book Chariots of the Gods. I don't buy the "ancient astronauts" theory. It is a little entertaining to watch how proponents work evidence to meet their theory. I watch them ignore basic elements of artistic representation to make ancient works of art literal interpretations rather than rich, symbolic visual poetry. I find the thought that a lack of modern scientific discoveries made ancient man less intelligent almost offensive.
In the past month there have been two comic book weddings that were touted a little bit. One moreso than the other. In X-Men Gold #30, We had the wedding of Colossus and Kitty Pryde. In Batman #50, we had the wedding of Batman and Catwoman. I'm going to compare the two, as they are very similar tales. In doing so, there will be spoilers.
