Luke Cage, Bad Dudes, and Not Being Bulletproof

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Quipped a Tulsa, Oklahoma law enforcement officer hovering above a local street just moments before Terence Crutcher was murdered by the state in the form of Officer Betty Shelby. Crutcher, like many before him fell prey to a combination of racism, a heavy-handed culture of law enforcement, fear, and what Claude Brown referred to as looking like “bad nigger” in “Manchild in the Promised Land.” As harsh of a descriptor as it sounds “Bad nigger” like “bad motherfucker” has particular connotations to many of us.

Frankly, It’s Comical: Comics I missed Captain America: Truth

This gallery contains 4 photos.

From about 1994 until about 2004/2005 I did not read one singular comic book. I collected them as a kid but for some reason I stopped giving a damn. I guess other things replaced funny books as one of my go-to distraction. Honestly, I wouldn’t have had any time to read them in college any way. When I stopped reading the ubiquitous X-Man, Wolverine had the metal forcibly removed from his person by Magneto (Nea-to).

My Hopes and Concerns About The Film Red Tails

This gallery contains 1 photos.

There are more than a few badly kept secrets about me. The first is that I’m awfully fond of pork-skins and Anheuser Busch products. (In tandem or separate.) Another is couple of secrets is that I like watching explosions and fighting hobos on Wednesday nights. (Never in tandem.) Finally, one of the biggest, badly kept secrets about me is that I’m a massive history/WWII nerd. Continue reading

Random Thoughts: My Favorite Sh*t of 2011

2011 AD was truly something else. It was neither a good nor bad year but a year none the less. Life kept on moving and I was thankful for every second of it. (It’s still real in the field though.) I would like to think that I’ve grown a little and made some all-around improvements. I know everyone is getting ready for 2012 but I just wanted to let everyone in some of the things I enjoyed in 2011. This won’t take too long and you’ll only feel a slight sting… Consider yourselves favorited b**ches. Continue reading

Manly Sh*t That Well Makes Me Feel…Manly

This gallery contains 2 photos.

For about six years or so I’ve maintained that the line that demarcates what manhood is or isn’t in America is getting really damn blurry. A good portion of my sentiment about being a carrier of a Y chromosome is based on the fact that I’m puzzled by the behavior of guys that are six to ten years younger than me.[i] To be blunt, these little millennial dudes are soft.

Marvel Comics killed Spider-Man and replaced him with a half black – half Puerto Rican kid named Miles Morales.[I] Well not really. Not at all. Continue reading

Frankly, It’s Comical Pt 3

Aight so I’m back on my comic book ish. I’m a month in a half behind so I’m going to try to be pretty concise. (I said I’ll try to be concise.) I make mine Marvel on the regular so that’s what I’mma gonna cover. Thanks to the folks at the public library I got put onto Y: The Last Man (A DC/Vertigo Book) and you’ll get a full review of my thoughts about the complete series that ran during the early 2000’s when I finish reading all of it.

Frankly, It’s Comical pt 2.1

This gallery contains 1 photos.

So here’s the second portion of yesterday’s rundowns. I was a little backed-up because I took three weeks off. This section is a little X-Men heavy. I’m taking a look at the X-Folk’s adventures in the sewers of New York and the level of dysfunction of Wolverine’s sidekicks/kids.
