My favorite line to repeat from this story arc has still been "You got that ick?" It just sounds like some nasty disease that people are passing around for fun.
To be honest, I wasn't very enthused about any of the books that I read this past week. Detective Comics #33 made the cut for my Pick of the Week mainly because of the artwork.

This is it! The second to last issue of my (Tash Moore) reviews for the Bronze Age Thor. It’s been a good run, along with Trolls, Frost Giants and upset fathers. Sounds like a really bad Coen Brother’s Film. All we’d need is Steve Buscemi looking lanky and sad in a Thor outfit while John Goodman is rocking the Odin dud’s telling him to “Shut up, Donny!” It’ll be great and just a little bit awkward. But I’d still find Jeff Bridge’s Loki the best. “ Loki abides man. Loki abides!”
But enough with my craziness. This issue has Thor yet again confronting The Black Stars! And boy are they not happy.

Oh, Moon Knight! As a young man, nothing made me more happy than reading comic books, Normally of the Spider-Man and Batman type and then playing a good video game. Mostly beat-em ups and fighting games. (Double Dragon and Street Fighter II to be exact.) I bring all these things up because after I read Moon Knight #5( Which you all can clearly see is my pick of the week.) I felt Moon Knight #5 combined all those things that I loved (Comics and Games) into a really awesome marriage. (Minus the fighting and name calling and calls to the cops to stop the fussin’ and the fuedin’.) of the two. I first got into Moon Knight thanks to the Marvel Essential program. Glorious black and white reprints of Doug Moench’s work from the 1980’s which is clearly worth it’s weight in gold.

Hey there, folks. Tash Moore here back with the post you all seem to love, but can never seem to keep around. Much like a family member who takes the coins in your piggy banks then slides out of a window in the dead of night. (That really happened to me in the summer of 1996. No lie.) It’s Reboots and Relaunches. Named for every time someone’s sales are slipping in any book. One of those two things happen. Shit, look at how bad things got for DC, and they did BOTH to all their titles. I’m slowly waiting for this to happen over at Marvel. If only so they can find a way to finally get that Captain America/ Goofy crossover By Mark Waid and Geroge Perez. I’d buy it. Shit, you know you would too! Legit! But really as always I’m just here to report “News” and then add my own wit to it. And by wit I really mean that I’ll give my opinion of the comic book news. For the record, almost anytime when anyone writes “opinion” on the Internet they really mean total hatred. I’ll try to be a little more kind here, but no promises.

starring Brent Butt, Amy Smart, David Koechner, and more.
"No Clue" is a funny detective film. It has a very classic premise, too. A young woman named Kyra (Amy Smart) enters the office of a private detective. She's sobbing. She's desperate to find out what's happened to her missing brother. Leo Falloon (Brent Butt) agrees to help the woman out and he's off to solve the mystery from there. The twist in the story comes from the fact that Leo is not a real detective!

In this issue of Amazing Spider-Man, Peter still needs to run about and re-organize his life after having Doctor Octopus mess around with it. It's like: "Hey, Ock. You could have at least put everything back where you found it. -_-" But it makes for an interesting story to see the ways in which Peter puts his life in order. The writing is a lot more creative as compared to the issue where he lets the Avengers know that it's really him by saying: "Hey, guys. It's really me. [Insert funny quip.]" Avengers: "Oh, yes. It must be him." Note that that wasn't the exact dialogue, but pretty close.

Well I am back as we have just a few more issues to wrap up this Bronze Age run of the Mighty Thor. It’s been a bit of a mixed bag but you know what? Almost any comic book you pick up, that could be the case. So away we go. But even more so the art has been fantastic. John Buscema is one of the all time greats and it’s pretty funny that he wasn’t a big fan of drawing super heroes. He was more happy doing Conan and sword and sorcery comics. He’s awesome with both, so “Big” John is totally a master in my book.
So yet again, with all the craziness that’s happened in the last few issues, Thor would like nothing more than to sit down in Asgard and catch a beer with the Warrior’s Three and dear old Dad, Odin. But there is no rest to be had! Odin knocks Thor’s hooch out of his hand and tells him there is a great danger to the universe…… AGAIN! Jeez, will Thor ever catch a break? I guess not. So Thor, Sif and the former Rigel Colonizer Tana Nile go to her home planet because the planet has been taken over and blown away by... wait for it…. THE BLACK STARS!!!!
