Quick Thoughts: Umbrella Academy Dallas

The Umbrella Academy was a gateway drug for me into the world of independent comics. Written by MCR frontman and goth cult icon Jared Way, The Umbrella Academy built a surreal world of apes and monsters heading towards an impending destruction, that could only be saved by a dysfunctional family of supers reuniting. It has been … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: Umbrella Academy Dallas

Wave 4 Amiibo Lucina Review

I don't think we could have predicted the whole world going amiibo crazy with ridiculous mark ups by scalpers on "unicorn" rare amiibos.

Quick Thoughts: The Walking Dead Season 1 and 400 Days (Spoiler Edition)

I'm mostly indifferent to the zombie genre that has had a sudden resurgence in the late nouties. Left 4 Dead is a blast, Zombieland is hilarious, but I dislike the amount of Zombie related media that is put out nowadays. It's become a novelty or a fad. Thus I've never invested in The Walking Dead … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: The Walking Dead Season 1 and 400 Days (Spoiler Edition)

Quick Thoughts: Hanamonogatari

The last time I checked in on Araragi and his harem of quick talking gag spewing oddity belles I stated that I wasn't overly hyped for the new season. I'm still a big fan of the Monogatari series but after spending a whole summer catching up on the series it can cause fatigue. Allowing myself a … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: Hanamonogatari
