Designing an X

Newsarama editor Chris Arrant interviewed designer Tom Muller about his take on the classic X-Men logo for the two upcoming series, Powers of X and House of X. I love these deep dives into the details of comic production. The logo is a key item on a comic cover, and when it comes to creating the newest evolution of the X-Men, the logo deserves to reflect that as well.

Redbox $.99 Rentals

Who can’t pass up a good deal? Or a good deal on entertainment?

Redbox has “older” movies BACK IN THE BOX for just $.99 a night! It’s a pretty sweet deal for movie watchers and maybe it’ll push you over the decision making edge to see that movie you missed out on. You know the one I’m taking about.

This is a great idea by Redbox and I look forward to taking advantage of it.

If I have the time. And there’s something I haven’t seen yet. And my wife and I can agree.

Down in DC

The ladies were getting hair cuts this past Saturday so I took a few shots from the city as I walked around with the boys. Later on we stopped in Tyson’s for some comic goodness and a discussion with a Batman creative team!

¡Coqui!

There are many things that can remind you of somewhere you hold near and dear to your heart. One such place is the sound of the coquí, a frog native to the island of Puerto Rico.

I was watching a terrible movie, Replicas, which said that it was taking place on the island. Knowing the nature of film, I’m like, “Yeah…sure.” But then I heard that sound. That irreplaceable, undeniable sound of the coquí. It made the movie a smidge better.

My Avengers: Endgame Experience

So today is the official release date of the latest Marvel Studios film, Avengers: Endgame.

To say that it is a highly anticipated film would be an understatement. Today will be filled with reaction videos, reviews, speculation, praises and disappointments. I have my thoughts, but instead of diving into those I want to share my movie going experience.

Comics DNA

Twitter was bombarded in mid-February by #comicsDNA, and it was all Alex Segura’s fault when he tweeted:

NBA 18-19

I haven’t watched this much NBA in years, and I’m enjoying it a lot.

It’s refreshing to see teams like Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Denver doing well. As a Lakers fan, I’m disappointed in this season. There has been drama, but I like some of the young players they have on the roster.
