Have you ever watched an episode of Star Trek and said, "Wait. What?" once the aliens explain their plan? I did a couple of weeks ago.

It's that time of year again, so I figured that I'd re-post my dramatic reading of "A Christmas Carol." Enjoy.

Here's another #Anime recommendation for you: Love, #Chunibyo, and Other Delusions. Michelle, Kira, and I really enjoy it.

Another part of the Norse Creation Story in comic book form. Let's see what they got right.
Episode 34 is available!

In this issue, Nick Fury meets a woman! And loses a man...! It’s an emotional roller coaster in Sgt. Fury 4!

Then the Vanisher strikes in The X-Men 2! How can our teen team stop a man who can vanish before their eyes? It’s a good thing Xavier has a human brain! (Wait, what?)

And finally in Journey into Mystery 98, the nascent Kirby run on Thor is interrupted by Don Heck bringing us a man who was bitten by a radioactive sp—... cobra! A radioactive cobra!

So come give a listen!

When the comics and Norse Lore intersect, I'll be there to comment on it! Thanks to Make Ours Marvel for giving me the opportunity to compare Tales of Asgard to what's in the Eddas.
‪Episode 32 is available!‬ And it’s all Jack Kirby all the time (almost)!

Kirby starts his famed run on Journey into Mystery 97 with the Lava Man and the premiere of the Tales of Asgard! And as an ongoing feature, Norse worshipper and friend of the show Gene Hendricks writes in his thoughts on how Kirby’s Tales relate to the actual Norse myths! Welcome to the show, Gene!

Then in Tales to Astonish 49, Kirby transforms the Ant-Man into Giant-Man! But he’s having trouble adapting to his new size, so it’s up the Wasp to save the day (cuz she’s awesome)!

And finally, in Strange Tales 114, Kirby revived another Golden Age favorite, the star-spangled hero Captain America! Except not really!
And then Kirby takes a backseat to Steve Ditko, whose Doctor Strange is finally here to stay!

When I think of Stan Lee, this is what my mind goes to first.
