My Favorite of 2013 Part 2- Movie and Heroclix Set

January 5, 2014

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone but my favorite movie in 2013 was Thor The Dark World.

As a long time fan of Marvel comics’ Thor character this was the Thor movie I was always hoping for. There were dark elves, weird science, awesome battle scenes and just the right amount of romance and comedy.  Plus Natalie Portman…’nuff said.

Favorite Heroclix set of 2013: Amazing Spider-Man

This set had the Legion of Monsters, Spider-Man 2099, and other bits of awesomeness.  I loved the characters with “Wild Dials”. It was my favorite “new mechanic” that was introduced to the game last year.

All in all 2013 was a great year for nerds everywhere!

Next time I will unveil the third and final part of my favorites of 2013. It will have my top 5 albums of 2013 and my favorite RPG book of last year.

My Favorites of 2013 Part 1 Uncanny Avengers!

January 5, 2014

Best ongoing comic book series: Uncanny Avengers

Of the titles I read monthly THIS is the one I look forward to the most.  It has been a crazy read thus far and I would argue it is more eventful than any of Marvel or Dc’s “event” books.  This team was formed after the calamities that occurred in 2012’s Avengers vs. X-Men mini- series. Captain America decides that  a unity squad with a roster made up of half Avengers and half X-Men is needed to show the world that mutants and humans can coexist together.  Great idea Cap! What could go wrong?

Years of mistrust and anger between different characters in this book causes….

I don’t want to give it away. You’ll have to either read it yourself or hit up Wikipedia. All I can say is it is EPIC!

This series draws heavily from past Avengers and X-Men stories.  For me that is one of the reasons I love this comic so much.

However if you have never read Marvel comics then this probably wouldn’t be the book to jump into.  2013 made mine Marvel…

That does it for today folks. My favorites part 2 (movies) will be coming soon!
