The Last Resort by Palmiotti, Gray & Caracuzzo

I just wrapped up reading The Last Resort by Palmiotti & Gray with art by Giancarlo Caracuzzo. Have you ever seen that seminal Christmas classic, Elf (that’s right, I called it a Christmas Classic)?

Autographed X-Men #1

12 year old me is salivating at the sight of this. X-Men #1. Red variant cover. Autographed by Jim Lee. Autographed by Chris Claremont. Autographed by Stan Lee. First, Jim Lee was probably my favorite artist of the 90s. The Image comics held me captive like no other. I had Casablanca Comics in Windham ME […]

Batman Hawaiian Shirt

Sometimes kitschy goes too far. This is one of those times. This is a Batman Hawaiian shirt. Why? Why would someone do this to the Dark Knight? Are those short sleeves or long sleeves? I just cannot tell. They could be 3/4 length. Ooooooofffffffffffffffff
