Comics + Cryptid Creatures
Hey YO! CHU Fam! What’s going on?
Well, it has been a while. Actually a long while. I have been wanting to write a couple articles up on here, but alas my hectic schedule does not allow me to sit down in front of a computer as often as I wish I could. I have had to readjust some of my priorities in life and been reflecting on somethings that matter in my life. People, impermanence, lack of attachments. With all the things going on in the world, and having some ACTUAL spare time, I did want to write up a quick review on a book which I had a pleasurable time to read several weekends ago.

What a change.. Continue reading “Cruzzer’s Phoenix Fan Fusion Wrap Up”
Dark Horse Omnibus Books
“We shouldn’t just collect or flip books, we should also read them. A good story can make your purchase well worth the money spent if you ask me. After all, we buy books to read for entertainment right? Even if you can’t flip them, reading is just as rewarding.” – AgentPoyo
It had been over 20 some years since I was that kid who went on a Boy Scout camping trip, and during the long hot Arizona van ride to the campgrounds, a kid passed me a copy of “Batman vs. Predator” that he had bought at the 7-11 were we had just stopped before our voyage started. This is the first comic book I ever read. The joy I had in the story telling about two completely different universes coming together, but I had always been a fan of the movie Predator. Not knowing the world of comics, I discovered Dark Horse Comics which I tended to gravitate towards reading. Continue reading “Dark Horse Omnibus Books”

Until the last several years, Carol Danvers for a long time has been somewhat of a background individual as far as the main players in the Marvel Universe.
