Hello interweb, Nate here! A while ago I mentioned in a post that I was getting a little burnt out on only talking about superheroes and wanted to expand this blog a little. I have decided, after much consideration, to expand this blog to an overall “geek” blog that will open the doors to more discussion over more topics without completely abandoning superheroes and comics as a whole. The biggest problem I’m really having is how to reorganize this site to accommodate this change. I’m trying to think of a new name for this blog as well as a new banner (or maybe change the style of this site to exclude the banner all together?). But for now, this is a post I’ve actually been wanting to do for years but just haven’t really been able to do it. So today, here’s my Top 10 Favorite Pokemon!
Now, this list was actually really painful for me to make as I could only pick 10 out of 800+ Pokemon that exist as of Gen VII. Granted, these are my favorites so I only had to deal with the ones I really like rather than mediocre ones like Pidgey or Rattata. However this list didn’t take too long to make as I actually looked up a website that helps with creating your top 10 list accurately and quickly that I’d actually recommend trying out as it was quite fun (Pro tip: try picking ONLY one pokemon every time and avoid clicking “pass” button).
Hello interweb, Nate here. So Saturday was Free Comic Book Day! For those of you who don’t know, FCBD is the first Saturday of every May where comic book publishers selects a few of their comics and gives them out for free. This was actually my first time going to a FCBD event so I didn’t really know what to expect. I originally was planning on getting more titles than I got (such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar, and Pokemon) but it turned out that you where only allowed to get three comics unless you where cosplaying (dressing up as a fictional character, usually from comics or anime/manga) where you could take four. So the comics I ended up getting was: Divergence #1 from DC, and Secret Wars #0 and All-New All-Different Avengers both from Marvel. Since I liked all the comics I got, I decided that I wanted to give them a review. However, because I got 3 comics that I want to review I’m not going to do my usual comic review format just to make it a little quicker. Also, I’m just going to talk about the stories, so don’t be surprise if I don’t mention the art or anything like that. So with that in mind, what did I think about these comics? (more…)
