Comic Books…Comic Books Everywhere

"C" is for "cat." If I fitz, I sitz.

“C” is for “cat.” If I fitz, I sitz.

     Hey there nerds of the world. Busy Summer here in my neck of the woods. I’ve been spending a lot more time than I’d like working on my lawn…And I use the word “lawn” loosely. I knew I had to do something when “mowing the lawn” became “mowing the dirt.”  I look like PigPen from Peanuts out there, engulfed by a huge, swirling cloud of dust. Kinda embarrassing when the neighbors drive by. But besides that, I’ve been diligently working on getting a big ol’ monkey off my back.

Making Some Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes In How I Buy My Comic Books

Mad scientist

I shoulda done this years ago!!!

     Let’s get all mad scientist up in here and do an experiment.  First though, I need you to go to the bank and buy a couple rolls of quarters.  Then walk down to the river and start chunking them in three at a time. DO WHAT!?!  Of course you’d never do such a thing. So imagine how I feel to realize I’ve been doing pretty much the same thing when it comes to buying my new comic books.  And I’ve been doing it for awhile. D’oh!  Allow me to explain.

Get Your M.O.D.O.K. On!!!

Every girl crazy bout a sharp dressed man!

Tremble in terror as M.O.D.O.K. dispenses caffeinated goodness!!!

     Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing, or as you may know and love him…M.O.D.O.K.  Perhaps the most ridiculous (and constipated) looking villain in the history of comic books. Just don’t say that to his gigantic face.  If you’ve ever stood at the Old Navy t-shirt display and silently cursed the lack of M.O.D.O.K. apparel in a sea of Spidey, Superman, Batman, and Iron Man garments…BEHOLD the M.O.D.O.K. t-shirt!  Available this month for pre-order through the PREVIEWS catalog (at your friendly neighborhood comic shop) or through online sources like Westfield Comics (where I ordered mine).

     And once you adorn your torso with the mighty one’s menacing, mascaraed visage, why not drink coffee or tea from his humongous cranium?  The M.O.D.O.K. figural mug is available this month from the same sources and this Summer from comic retailers who will undoubtedly stock up on cases of these to meet the demand.  I’m not much of a coffee drinker, so I will probably use the evil M.O.D.O.K. to hold pens and pencils on the Nerd Cave workbench. Tremble at his awesomeness!
