A Little Shelf Expression


It’s been too long since my last post and WAY too long since my last League post.  Between some obscure League topics and real life keeping my busy, I’m a little behind on my blogging.  But, thankfully Brian threw out an easy one this week so, I’m pushing through and getting a new post up! […]

Batman’s 75th Anniversary


That’s right, folks.  Batman made his first appearance in Detective Comics #27, 75 years ago today.  I know, I know … the cover says May.  According to DC Comics, the date this issue actually hit the newsstands was March 30th.

The Sticker Post


I’ll just start off by saying, this post is a complete rip-off of the sticker book post on ShezCrafti.  As Jaime put it, every kid in the 80s col­lected stick­ers It’s something I never really thought about but, this is very true.  Stickers seemed to be in their heyday, in the 80’s & early 90’s.

When it comes to Movie Monsters, I’m old school


Most people in my age group grew up on 80’s movie monsters like Freddy, Jason, Pinhead, Michael Myers, etc.  Not me.  The fact is that, I’ve only just seen ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ for the first time about a year ago.  I’ve never seen a ‘Hellraiser’ or ‘Halloween’ movie.
