Budgeted properly using our monthly salary.
Wow! Much books, such savings!
sides and what not. I swear to god that it had that "dummy booklet used by the printing press" look to it.
It's nothing to write home about. But I seriously liked the first story though.
The same couldn't be said about the main story though (from
which the cover was based from).
Everyone has that constipated look on their faces.
THE same artist from the Countdowns to New 52 comic books that I had religiously collected back
then.The style seemed tailor-made strictly for DC Character. Applying the same aesthetic choices on Marvel characters just didn't carry the same magic and is a bit disappointing to look at.
And seriously speaking, anyone expecting some 30++ pages worth of Wolverine on Wolverine action (as what the really REALLY misleading Skottie Young cover might have suggested)
would be twice as disappointed that it only contained 3 pages worth of fight and a not all that
exciting exchange either.
For serious Wolverine collectors only and if you're not then please refrain from picking this
The Far Side Compilation is what you'd expect from books of similar nature.
And the said compilation actually delivers. With funny scenes like THESE (to name a few):
THE" definitive collection but a must have for any Gary Larson collectors, hoarders
Next up are THESE 4 badboys from Japan Selections (Starmall Branch).
These are the three One Pieces and one Recca No Honoo (Flame Of Recca) tankobons that we have
meticulously picked all afternoon. It took us forever but we do refuse to go over our budget hence
4 books would have to do for now.
#21 was from the Alabasta Arc. Basically it's Sanji vs Mr.2, Nami vs Ms. Doublefingers (Nami's very first 1 on 1 fight) and Mr.1 vs Zoro. So basically it's one big fighting issue and a whole lot of fighting makes Dark Chapel a happy boy! We are also then treated to the "GUNSHOW" courtesy of Ms. Doublefingers.
THAT and we get to see Franky square off against Fukuro.
A rather reluctant Sanji vs Kalifa, which would later on be a Nami vs Kalifa match instead.
Jabra vs Sogeking.
Kumadori vs Nami, which would later on be a handicap match right after Chopper's interference. Well, we all knew how that ended!
A quick Luffy vs Lucci bout.
And the sole reason as to how the Enies Lobby building earned it's trademark slice in the middle.
#47 was from the Thriller Bark Arc (well, there's a mouthful!). This was a random issue wherein Luffy's shadow was fed to Gekko Moriah's monster (Oars).
#27 was from the SODOM Arc. And no,
This chapter was after both the Ura Butō Satsujin (Tournament) and the Sealed Lands Arc.
And to make matters worst, these said chapters were never really given a proper
anime adaptation. Making it more obscure and denying the fans of a proper ending to their beloved
We did however found this clip from Youtube.
Yes, this was indeed how the final battle went on the manga.
But where's the rest of them? Every OTHER episode leading to this moment is nowhere
to be found.
And it isn't like the title is an ongoing one. It ended around issue #33 around the
early 2000's so for them not to make the anime adaptation of the last few chapters is either due to plain laziness or budget constraints. Either way, we may never know.
Anyways, back to the manga.
This was the first appearance of Kadotsu.
I mean, just look at him?
His appearance alone makes this purchase well worth it!
And then we had THESE books right here....
kind of blogger we truly are!
The SSM! Blogspot, the name you can trust!
Most especially on matters concerning geekiness and all-around pervertedness!
So is it Tattoo Flash or Flash Tattoo?
Either way, it's your standard tattoo magazine.
Filled with stunning works like THESE:
The only one we could find that was this one:
Next up is Bizarre Magazine.
Where do we even begin?
This magazine is awesome enough that no words could even begin to describe it.
The only problem we had with this book is that there aren't enough copies being sold.
Not just by any bookstore's standards but the throughout the entire country even.
This was the only copy we could find and yet we immediately fell in love with in.
to be hearing about this around the late 2000's is most certainly a travesty and a failure on our part.
I wish we could do something to make up for all those lost time but until then here are a few
of their social media accounts that we (and possibly you) can now catch up with.
Edit: It is with a heavy heart that we share this tragic and not so recent news with you.
And speaking of unexpected tragedies, here's yet another one.
100 pages worth of vintage and new school Piper.
Final Verdict: Totally worth it!!!!!
And to end things on a much happier note, we did had a lot of fun with this tribute book. As exhibited here:
And we've even thrown in some POE related theatrics for your visual pleasure!
Everyone's familiar with the first two films hence we will briefly review Wyrmwood instead.
Wyrmwood is an Australian horror film labeled as "Mad Max Meets Walking Dead". But with all things considered, closely resembled Walking Dead all the more.
We wouldn't go on and spoil the movie for you but amongst all the actors and actresses from the film, the stand out performer was a character named Brooke as portrayed by Bianca Bradey.
Best scenes were with the Christopher Lloyd inspired mad doctor
