These are the, almost, daily bits of brain dribble from a guy who is all talk and no show. This guy has a lot of ideas for, and about, movies, books, comics, TV shows, Video Games, but no will to leave the couch, so he inflicts them upon you poor souls. He's a writer, filmmaker, actor, musician, and masturbatory champion. Mainly he's full of shit. Enjoy!

Divinity #1 Review
I have been really
interested in getting into the Valiant Universe. They've been building their
own superhero universe over there for sometime now. While D.C. and Marvel are
well known for their company wide story lines and character crossovers, Valiant
has also been creating their own shared universe.
So, one day I decide
to dive into this new Verse. My first stop was the company website. I wanted to

was chosen for the mission that would take him to the stars.
The first issue
doesn't give much away about what we will see in the rest of the series, but it
does a good job of endearing the reader to this character. Grounding a god-like
character to the Earth and humanity by first showing him as an orphan on a doorstep
I don't want to give
too much of the first issue away, so I'll stop here. I think this issue dropped
last week so check out your local comic shop and get your self a copy. Throw
this one in your pull list!
