Best Series 2007

Immortal Iron Fist

I've absolutely loved this series from the first issue. It brings Iron Fist into historical perspective, and makes what used to be one man into an entire mythos. Starting a few months ago, Iron Fist became caught up in a martial arts tournament to determine his host city's dominance compared to the other 6 mystical cities. And in the middle of all this, he's having to stop Hydra from destroying K'un L'un as well. Very well written, excellent art, I just can't say enough good stuff about this series. Go out and buy it!

Best Story 2007

There were some great story arcs this year, but I'm going to have to give the nod to:

The Sinestro Corps War

This story was stretched over Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps, with some specials thrown in as well. It was exciting to see the massive space battle between opposing groups, along with the smaller, character defining moments. They're also leading into another big story, with even more Ring Corps getting involved, so this is something to keep an eye on.

Best Publisher 2007

Welcome to my 1st Annual Comics Awards! My apologies to Comic Book Resources, considering I stole most of their categories...
So, without further ado, my publisher of the year is:

Marvel Comics
Marvel had some major, universe changing this year. And, unlike some other publishers, it happened in continuity! The comics are actually having to react to this new status quo! Of course, I'm talking about Civil War, but there were other changes as well. Annihilation and Annihilation Conquest brought some forgotten heroes to the forefront and changed how life outside the planet Earth operates, decimating the Skrull and Kree races. The discovery of the 3rd Summers brother, Vulcan, is having ramifications in the Shi'ar galaxy. There were some major blunders and delays, but all in all, a great year for Marvel.

Delegates so Far

Wow, where've I been?! Those holidays must have really taken it out of me. Anyway... Here's a list of how many delegates each presidential candidate has as of this morning.

  • Mitt Romney 30
  • Mike Huckabee 21
  • John McCain 10
  • Fred Thompson 6
  • Ron Paul 2
  • Rudy Guiliani 1
  • Duncan Hunter 1


  • Hilary Clinton 183
  • Barack Obama 78
  • John Edwards 52
  • Bill Richardson 19
  • Dennis Kucinich 1
  • Mike Gravel 0

Note: Democrats have roughly twice as many delegates as Republicans, so must win twice as many for their nomination.

Wizard World Pics Part 1

Alright, since I actually got a card reader to free my Wizard World pics from my camera, I'll go ahead and blog a little about it. This picture is from Saturday. Quite a line... Saturday was the worst, like always, but I didn't have to wait too long. Aww...Star Wars nerds! This is the 501st Legion. And yet, they have jedi, stormtroopers, fighter pilots and death star commanders... I don't see how they'd get along. But, they were all nice guys to talk to, so I'll stop making fun.
