Fear not true believers, for your uncle Maz has finally returned from vacation!
Let me tell you, its was one crazy week filled with ups and downs, but mostly ups. Charlotte Comic Con was a blast as usual, and as usual I bought over 300 comics at the show. Although I would have bought more if the one vendor I was looking for had shown up as advertised. But I more than made up for it during the week when I hit a few comics stores near me.
Aside from the massive comic buying, I spent much of the week napping and dreaming of Jennifer Lawrence. Not sure why she kept showing up in my dreams, but I’m not going to complain.
I also caught up on a few movies that for one reason or another I missed in theatres. And before anyone asks, yes, I did see “Fantastic Four.” But I’ll have more on all of that later this week. For now, here’s a few things I thought you should know:
*At the box office, ” Straight Outta Compton” crushed the competition, earning a remarkable $56 million this weekend.
*Marvel is a pain in the ass for not releasing any of the Civil War footage shown at the D23 Expo . At the very least, the studio could release the Doctor Strange concept art.
*My favorite houseguest got the boot last week on “Big Brother.”
*I warned my mother in law not to eat those nachos, but did she listen? Of course not.
*Jim Nantz doing sports always puts me to sleep. It’s quite uncanny.
*Laneit is thinking about writing on this here blog again, but I think before that happens we’ll discover life on another planet first.
