Today’s Toy Haul: The Penguin [Batman Returns DC Multiverse Action Figure] (October 21, 2019)

Posting this one before calling it a night.  I just know if I put it off, I’ll never get it done. The Penguin When people my age think about The Penguin, one singular image comes to mind: Danny DeVito in 1992’s Batman Returns.  Similar visual comparisons have also been made to the version that eventuallyContinue reading “Today’s Toy Haul: The Penguin [Batman Returns DC Multiverse Action Figure] (October 21, 2019)”

Review: Problems with the printing quality of Captain America #8 [Volume #9 |February 27, 2019] (March 3, 2019)

Had some time this morning to sit down and read a couple of the books that I purchased yesterday: Captain America #8 and Simone Bianchi and Mark Millar’s Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1. Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 (Volume #1 | 2019) Now, I wasn’t immediately drawn to the name “Sharkey The Bounty Hunter” orContinue reading “Review: Problems with the printing quality of Captain America #8 [Volume #9 |February 27, 2019] (March 3, 2019)”

Review: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2019 [Day 1] (February 22, 2019)

The Mark of a Tradition After making it to Big Bad Wolf Book Sale for the third year in a row, I guess my family and I can now confidently label the annual event as a family tradition.  Since 2017, we have made it a point to grace The World Trade Center in Pasay City–siteContinue reading “Review: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2019 [Day 1] (February 22, 2019)”

Review: The Perils of Penelope (1973) (February 21, 2019)

Back when I was in nursery, our little school library had a single copy of an extremely hard-to-find book called Sesame Street Presents Bert and Ernie (The Jim Henson Muppets) in The Perils of Penelope (1973).  An adventure story and one of my all-time favourites, the book shows Ernie placing a hapless Bert in multipleContinue reading “Review: The Perils of Penelope (1973) (February 21, 2019)”

Review: The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part [No Spoilers] (February 20, 2019)

February 19, 2019. With the success of 2014’s The Lego Movie, it was only a matter of time before my family and I caught its highly anticipated sequel on the big screen, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.  I went into this movie blind–having made it a practice to (as much as possible) notContinue reading “Review: The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part [No Spoilers] (February 20, 2019)”

Komiket 2019 (February 18, 2019)

Medical Report I’ll be honest.  I am not in the best of shape today.  I’ve got the flu and didn’t think I’d even get a chance to post this entry tonight as I went to bed early.  Here’s a quick summary: No cough, running nose, or joint pain (I am grateful) but my throat isContinue reading “Komiket 2019 (February 18, 2019)”

Review: Haliya Publishing’s H Club Box 4 [Sold Out] (February 11, 2019)

Very fortunate to be among the few to have Haliya Publishing’s H Club Box 4 (with a sculpture of Tabi Po’s Elias).  My H Club Box 4 arrived via courier last week and I was planning on finding some free time this afternoon to do an unboxing video.  But as luck would have it–I ran outContinue reading “Review: Haliya Publishing’s H Club Box 4 [Sold Out] (February 11, 2019)”

Fringe 2019 x Komiket Makati (February 10, 2019)

Found out about the one-day Fringe 2019 x Komiket Makati event just last night and decided to drop by and support my fellow indie comic book creators today.
