In Psych (2006), Timothy Omundson plays Carlton Lassiter, a detective who hates the local psychic. Coincidently, he appears in the "Are you psychic?" commercial in Starship Troopers (1997) only this time, he is the psychic.

The Weird (1988 Mini-Series)

A creation of the awesome talents of Jim Starlin and Bernie Wrightson, this four-issue mini-series starred the title character, as well as the Justice League, Superman, and a few others (Nuklon as I recall). The Weird was an energy being from an alternate dimension who, along with his fellow Zarolatts, was enslaved by the malevolent Macrolatts. Taking advantage of the Macrolatt attempt to invade our dimension, he eascapes to earth, merges with and reanimates a dead human body, and tries to stop the Macrolatt’s ally from helping them invade. Along the way he gets involved with Earth’s heroes. Hilarity ensues.

The series was a quirky, well-written adventure yarn - a classic comic book trope (good alternate dimension alien trying to stop bad ones), given a bit of new life by the humanization of the title character alien. In merging with a human body, he gains that body’s memories (albeit fragmented) of family and love, dealing with those issues (and the loss thereof) along the way.

In the end, a sacrifice is made and the story was ended. Or so everyone thought.

Nearly 20 years later, in what became several interlocking mini-series adventures*, Starlin revisited the character by resurrecting him deep in space and allying him with several other space heroes. But that’s a reminisce for another time....

*Note - It was the finding of these series which kick started this bit of memory lane walking. I have yet to come across my copies of The Weird mini-series (a fact which is slowly driving me mad(er), and will continue to do so until I find it and read it).

The Sandman

That epic series by Neil Gaiman! So much awesome, I doubt I can do it justice. It was my introduction to Gaiman, and to the idea that comics could be just downright weird. Gaiman has a true gift for weaving myth, legend, and religion into a compelling story.

My only regret was that I stopped collecting the series at issue 51. I must have been overcome with some form of insanity. In bagging and boarding my Sandman issues yesterday, I began to consider completing my collection by seeking out the issues I'm missing.

Manhunter (Detective Comics Backup Story) – Back in 1973 the legends Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson started this story as a backup feature. I was only a toddler at the time, so did not collect comics yet. The entire series was later (early 80s) reprinted as a single book, which is where I discovered it sitting on display at BSI Comics in Metaire, LA (a place where I would spend many happy days).

This was an incredible story. The character, Paul Kirk, started out pre-WWII as a big game hunter turned costumed adventurer known as Manhunter. After WWII he apparently died, only to be reawakened years later by a cabal of scientists – The Council – who had used their incredible intellects and advanced science to not only resurrect Kirk, but to also supply him with a healing ability. At the same time, however, The Council cloned him over and over again, creating an army of duplicates for him to lead in The Council’s stated goal of “saving mankind from itself”. Needless to say, The Council was now corrupt and actually bent on world domination. Kirk broke with them, reclaiming his Manhunter identity and setting out to destroy the Council and end their evil machinations. Hilarity ensues.

The story had a great, pulpy feel to me. Kind of like Indiana Jones, but with Batman. It was old school adventure and intrigue, wrapped in a big, comic book bow. The settings were international – Nepal, Marrakesh, Australia, the Middle East, South America. There was even a visit to Gotham City. Interpol was involved – my introduction to that organization. The story was compelling – ones man’s fight to save the world and reclaim his own dignity, his companions and allies drawn into his cause by their own needs for revenge, redemption, and justice.

The writing was amazing. Each chapter had a short, opening paragraph to set the pace and the place – Letting you know what was going on and giving a hint of the mayhem to come. The location descriptions and set-up dialogue once again left me with that pulp adventure impression, with that flare for awesomeness that made Archie Goodwin into one of the truly greats. The art was dynamic. It wasn’t quite the style Simonson would develop later – that signature art so prevalent in Thor, New Gods, and other titles – but the beginnings of it were there. This was gritty art. It was rough, and violent, and action packed. Each page was a visual feast.

The story won numerous awards, and set these two artists on the course to greatness in the comic book industry. Years later, before Goodwin’s death, they began work on a short follow-up. When Archie passed, Walt completed the story as a “silent issue” –art, but no words. It was a fitting tribute to his friend and collaborator. DC later added that to the rest of the story in a special addition.

If anyone loves comics, adventure, conspiracy, ninjas, and Batman, then I highly recommend going out and finding a copy of this magnificent tale.

The Kindly Dragon

Once upon a time, there was a very kindly dragon who loved all the world and tried to help people whenever he could.

He was killed by dragon hunters.

They made his scales into armor, bags, and furniture. They powdered his bones and sold it as a male potency enhancer. Then they bought a really cool castle with the gold from his horde, and spent the rest of their lives in glorious, drunken debauchery.

The end.

Wherein I discuss comic book related things…..

I’ve been a comic book collector for around 30 something years. It started with my maternal grandmother buying me an issue of Marvel’s G. I. Joe that caught my eye. Now I have 20+ long boxes worth – maybe a couple thousand? Some great stuff in there, including Crisis on Infinite Earths, a first printing of The Killing Joke, a good bit of autographed stuff, and so on…..

Not too long ago, I finally determined I’d get more serious about my storage, so I purchased a set of Comic Cubes. Each was two rows of drawers high by four drawers across, for a total of eight. In beginning to transfer my comics into the Cubes, I’ve been coming across older stories that I love. I thought it might be cool to share my thoughts on some of that stuff.

Be warned, there will be spoilers. Although, is it really a spoiler if the information is older than some of the posters hereabouts? Anyway, if you don’t like that, don’t read any further.

So, without further ado….

I'm indifferent to both the actor and the director they named. Marvel had a hand in the choice, and they've done some pretty decent moves to date. So I have faith they won't screw this up too bad.

I did see an article that stated he had really good readings with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. So I think that's a good sign.

Here's one I'm reposting from my Ramblin' Man thread.....

The Winter Princess

Once upon a time, there was a young princess who found she had been gifted with wintery powers. She considered these powers a curse and, with the help of her parents, concealed their existence from everyone, including her own younger sister.

Then, tragically, her parents died in an horrific carraige accident, leaving her to face the world alone. She tried to keep her powers hidden, but ascending to the throne made this increasingly difficult. Her young sister tried to get her to opne up, to reinvigorate the bond they shared as children, but the now queent kept herself guarded.

Things finally came to a head at the coronation celebration, when the queen argued with her younger sister and accidently revealed her icy gifts.

Then came the real shock. The younger sister revealed her own, summer-based powers of heat and flame. She also revealed that it was she who caused their parent's accident, and that she was finally ready to make her move and seize the kingdom for herself.

The two sisters fought, unleashing the full might of their powers. Flames roared. Ice cracked. Everyone died.

The End.

I will admit, I expect nothing to come of this. It was simply a cathartic move on my part.

I primarily post in the Off-topic section, and dislike seeing it poisoned by what I see as the argumentative opinions of self-righteous jackasses. And I also fall into the camp of "this should be a place of fun, not a place where the aforementioned self-righteous jackasses come to vent their spleens and role play solving the world's problems".

And, yes, Brainiac, I know about the Hide function. Sadly, however, I have found that threads do sometimes become unhidden. Not to mention that these arguments tend to generate bad blood that will leak into other areas.

In the end, I would prefer this to be a happy place. Sadly, some people don't seem to be happy, and so don't want that for others.

The Very Sleepy Princess

Once upon a time, there was a king whose vast wealth made him the envy of all other realms. He protected his treasure by locking it away in a vault surrounded by magic flowers.

"Be warned," the king said to his daughter, the princess, "For those these flowers are beautiful to behold, their thorns are deadly. One little prick, and you shall fall into a deep sleep where the Lord of Nightmares will find you and gobble you up."

The princess refused to believe her father, and while playing near the vault one day, pricked her finger on a flower. Immediately, she fell into a deep sleep.

Then the Lord of Nightmare found her dreaming mind, gobbled it up, and used her dying body as a portal into the waking world. Once there, he killed everybody.

The End.

Forgot to mention, the wife and I saw it this past Friday evening (thank you, Parent's Night Out). We both enjoyed it. Lots of action. decent special effects.

I was fond of the little nods here and there to the original, and liked how it was more of a direct sequel to that movie. The final dino battle was, in my never at all humble opinion, epic.

The only things I found disappointing were the whole "evil corporation plan to sell velociraptors to the military as weapons", and the romance subplot between Pratt and Howard's characters. The former, I thought was just too cliché and like beating a dead horse. The romance I considered a bit WTF because I didn't really see much chemistry between the actors or their characters.
