It’s Gotta Be We Stand On Guard #1 For Thee On The Wednesday Run

WeStandOnGuard1There’s nothing quite like sharing a little bit of patriotism on a comic book Wednesday.

If you’re seeing all things maple leaf red or the word “eh?” keeps coming up in your Facebook or your Twitter stream today, it’s because today, July 1, is Canada Day!

Canada Day! The national holiday of this columnist’s nation, celebrating the 1867 birth of the greatest hockey-playing, maple-syrup loving, beaver adoring, arctic-solidifying, rainbow-coloured monied, Mountied, health-cared country in the world!

Of course, some of those might not be real words, but any British, Russian, Brazilian or Korean citizen – or any other citizen from any other country – can easily get the drift: today, July the 1st is our day.

Why not spend it protecting our nations’ borders from our southern neighbours?

Wait. What?

You heard me right. Follow me after the jump for the eagerly anticipated scoop on We Stand On Guard #1.

Is Anything Larger Than ANT-MAN: LARGER THAN LIFE #1 On The Wednesday Run

AntmanThere’s no way to whisper this on the Internet is there? Fine. Ant-Man purists, cover your ears! Here goes:

I’m actually a fan of the Scott Lang Ant-Man character (the second Ant-Man) over the original Hank Pym Ant-Man character. (Ducks for cover).

Sacrilege! To the pitchforks! Strike the torches! Bring him down!

I know. I know. How could I possibly say that, being a “purist” sort of fellow myself? I mean, I like my Nutella on plain, untoasted, Wonder bread. I’m not a fan of company branding on my shirts. And Batman is at his best when his costume is a gray sweater with a black bat symbol on it.

Even though I’m a fan of the Scott Lang character, I’m still keen on the affectionately and cheekily titled Ant-Man: Larger Than Life #1 – out today.

Follow me after the jump and I’ll tell you why!

To The Polls With PREZ #1 On The Wednesday Run

Prez1coverTiming is everything, isn’t it?

A day after Donald Trump famously made a fool of himself (yet again) by throwing his hat in the Republican electoral conversation in the United States of America (my goodness, he’s so misinformed!), DC Comics is looking for your vote on a number of new comic books issued today!

You see, DC’s “New52” initiative from a few years ago has come to its only logical conclusion: it’s become something else. Witness the birth of the DCYou!

With new, debut titles of Robin: Son of Batman, Martian Manhunter, Harley Quinn and Power Girl, Black Canary, Doctor Fate and Doomed, it’s Prez #1 that’s got me most interested this week.

Follow me after the jump for the entire voter turnout!

Future Politics, Present Day With ABSOLUTE TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 1

TransmetropolitanI think it may be a little like life, in many regards.

Politics begins to mean something important later in life for many of us. Sure, there are the few in high school, the over-achievers, who are attuned to all forms of government and governmental persuasion. And there are those in the college and university crowd, the ever-assembled, who seem to have their finger on the pulse of what makes democracy tick.

And then there are those, like me, that come late to societal policies and beliefs and their legislation.

But hey! That’s ok. Better late than never.

So, regardless if you were the over-achiever, the ever-assembled, or even if you’re late to this political party, follow me after the jump for the political spin of the Absolute Transmetropolitan Volume 1.
