For Memorial Day: Remember those who have given their lives in the defense of our country

This news article brought a tear to my eye, because it's a reminder not just that many of our military personnel die in the line of duty, but that so many have died in the line of duty over the years.

Now I wish to thank all our brave defenders who have died in the line of duty. You served your country to the bitter end, literally giving your all so that we can be free from the forces of death and oppression. My heartfelt thanks for your sacrifice, and I pray that God is rewarding you now in paradise for a job well done.

It's because of these brave men and women that we here in the U.S. must continue to fight the forces of death and oppression, not just abroad, but here in our shores. Specifically, we must keep after our politicians and other lawmakers that they never forget just whom they serve - and it's not political action committees! Not all acts of bravery in the face of stiff opposition is committed by those that carry a rifle in the battlefield - sometimes they carry a protest sign.

Our soldiers fought and died so that we would be free to express our views against even our political leaders. I'm not advocating an overthrow of the government; rather, I want our government to be reminded - constantly, since it seems to need it! - that they serve this country and that they serve us, and not themselves and their own selfish interests.

I think many in our local, state, federal offices need that reminder come this November, so please study the issues and know the views of your representatives at all levels of government. Our soldiers fought and died so that we would continue to have the power of the ballot box, so exercise that power when the time comes, so that their sacrifices will not have been in vain.

Thank God for our brave soldiers from the past, present, and those in the future. We honor their memory and sacrifice by exercising those very freedoms that they gave their lives for us have and to keep.

New hat for me: MythBUSTer

Today's earlier blog entry has made me realize that I've been wearing a certain hat when it comes to debunking and demystifying certain beliefs and exaggerations when it comes to boobs, and especially big boobs. I have even come up with a clever name for that hat: MythBUSTer! Get it? :-D

Just note that this is not to bust (no pun intended, but see how ubiquitous slang for breasts is?) your bubble when it comes to the bounteous bosom, but to keep you grounded. Yes, you guys will always be drooling over large boobs, but at least try to stick with what is credible! And if you have any questions as to what is "credible" - well, that's what I'm here for. ;-)

That is all. Have a great weekend!

Holy smokes! Junko from "Desert Punk"

Desert Punk is an anime that I have not seen, so I don't know if it's good or not. However, I was sent the pic below of one of the characters. Her name is Junko. And yes, her boobs are that big in the show. I don't know who the little dudes are, and I don't know what she's about to do with one of them.

But trust me on this, fellas - in real life, boobs that big are freakishly, monstrously heavy! Heavy, heavy, heavy! So heavy that it would be virtually impossible for Junko to hold that pose below for any length of time without tipping over to her right side or her left arm collapsing from the weight! Try strapping on watermelon-sized water balloons to your chest and see if you could hold yourself up at an angle like she is with just one arm!

I know you guys like big boobs and that you are sometimes too horny for your own good, but most of you would have to admit that this is a bit too much? If Junko were real, she would be a candidate for breast reduction surgery. She could lose several cup sizes and STILL be a DD!

My Wish List

I'm starting a wish list, and I'll be adding to it periodically.

My # 1 wish is that my comic finally gets off the ground. I know how hard the boss has been trying to find a regular artist because he updates me, and I understand how frustrating this all is for him, but it's still my # 1 wish. In the meantime, I am perfectly willing to continue writing this blog because he got me started on this, and because I enjoy it so much. :-)

Next on my wish list is for the following artists to do pin-up work of me:

* Adam Hughes
* Terry and Rachel Dodson
* Amanda Conner

Another of my wishes is that I become a regular pin-up subject for aspiring comic book artists. I think it would be awesome to become a tradition of sorts in the comics industry that artists show their Andromeda pin-up whenever they present their portfolios to comic book companies or other companies that are involved in illustration. I would also like part of that tradition to be that a printout of my critique of their work being part of showing my pin-up to those comic companies.

For example, if Jane Doe applies to Bigshot Comics as an artist, among her artworks would be "the traditional" Andromeda pin-up, along with my glowing recommendation of her work. It could be one of those instances that if I like their stuff, then it becomes something to put on their résumé. I could post their pin-up of me on my blog, and then I can update everyone if that artist got accepted to work for the comics company that they applied for.

Yes, starting such a tradition is a long shot - but hey, when ya dream, then might as well dream big, right? ;-)

I think I have a pretty good start. I'll put this blog entry to my blog links on my sidebar so that I can add to it later.

Oh, and I wish for world peace. Meant to say that sooner, sorry. :-P

Tonner Dolls of DC Stars

Interesting! Check this site out! Tonner Dolls: DC Stars

It appears that superheroes are branching out into a brand of dolls that are higher priced that your little cheapie action figures. I wonder if these will eventually become collector's items like Effanbie dolls or Madame Alexander dolls? It probably would have to be a woman who both appreciates finer dolls as well as enjoys the superhero genre. While I appreciate the superhero genre, I am not so much into the fancier dolls. Barbie was mostly what I had played with, along with Star Wars action figures, Transformers, and GI Joe (there were female Joes and Cobra, in case you had forgotten).

Below is the Wonder Woman doll. I think they did a very good job on it. You know - I might get at least that one. They're freakin' expensive, but I might splurge for at least one. I hope one day that my likeness is created into a Tonner doll. That would be so awesome, especially if they can detail it right down to the smiley face on my boob. :-)

Power Girl (almost) as you've always wanted to see her!

Hmm. I had a discussion with the boss about how to post this, and we both agreed that if you're one of those kind that checks out my blog while at work, then this might be considered NSFW. You know... in case you have one of those insane feminist bosses. :-P

In the link is an artwork of Power Girl (almost) as you've always wanted to see her.

The artist is Scott Blair, who just happens to be the same artist that did an artwork of me last year. Dang, Scott! Or should I say, Great Scott! That's some nice artwork there, dude! And that perfectly positioned hand (well, maybe not for some of you!) is the perfect tease for this kind of work. This gives you more of a gander of PG's awesome boobs than we normally would see, and yet not quite everything. It just works, and I think it's cool.

Local comic shops in the news, and correcting a mistake

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a news story today on the local comic shops and what they are doing to get and keep in business, and apparently the comics biz ain't too shabby. I know that some comic shops have come and gone in this area, and I miss some of them, because they were where I had spent quite a few coin getting the latest from Marvel or DC (and indies too, of course). However, I am glad to see that the comics industry has managed to tough it out, and I am also glad to see the indy comic shops persevere too; just like I like seeing the mom and pop stores and restaurants do well despite the presence of franchises in those respective retail and dining areas. I guess rooting for these indy places is where I show some of my liberal side. And yes, I have a liberal side, even if it's not plainly obvious. :-P

Also, I notice that the linked article above is written by Scott Hinze, who just happens to be based here in Fort Worth with his nationally known Fanboy Radio show, which broadcasts from the Texas Christian University campus. You know what? It's a bit odd that, here I am based in Fort Worth and I write a blog about comics, and here Scott is based here with a radio show also in Fort Worth, and yet I have never mentioned him on my blog until now!

Well, permit me to correct that now by including a link to Fanboy Radio on my list of cool links on my blog's sidebar. My apologies, Mr. Hinze! While I am not surprised that you don't know about me, I have known about you, and yet I never thought to talk about you on my comics-related blog until now!

See folks, even superpowered superhumans who can throw tanks like a child throws a water balloon can still make mistakes! Anyway, today's lesson is to go support your local comics shop, folks. They need the business just like any other business, and unlike your 7D-Elevens or Barnacles and Ignoble's Bookstores, your local comic shop owner not only sells comics, he or she is also most likely a fan, so go show some nerd love for a fellow comics nerd. :-)

Holy cow! We now know the identities of Red Hulk and Red She-Hulk!

Holy Identity Crisis, Batman! We now know the identity of the Red Hulk and the Red She-Hulk! But I won't reveal it here! Click on the respective links to find out, or if you prefer, go buy this week's Hulk comics.

I gotta think about this one, and whether it makes sense. Just so you know, if you don't want the identities spoiled for you before you read the stories, don't click on the links above, and don't read any possible comments below.

You have been warned!

My name is NOT Busty!

I was doing a websearch for my blog, and I came across this entry, which asked "What are some unique super hero names for women?"

While I am honored that I can get lumped into such elite company such as Wonder Woman, Jean Grey, and Cat Woman, I also would like to say that MY NAME IS **NOT** "BUSTY"! LOL

"Busty" is what I am, it's not WHO I am!

Ramón Pérez coming up in an issue of Marvel's Dazzler

Hey, guys!

Just so you know, the artist formerly known (and still known as) Ramón Pérez will be featured in part of Marvel's upcoming Dazzler one-shot that comes out on May 26th. If you recall, I brought up Mr. Ramón in a previous blog entry of his stunning webcomic, Kukuburi. Here is further info on his upcoming Dazzler gig from his website. Below is one such example of his artwork from the Kukuburi website. Isn't it awesome? Can you see why now that I still hope that he can find the time to do a pin-up of me? :-)

So anyway Mr. Ramón, I will certainly buy Dazzler when I see it come out! :-D

I will resume posting next week

Well, my little nerdlings, my day tomorrow looks to be too busy for me to finish at least one of my posts, so I'll just resume next week. Got most of my real life stuff done, but tomorrow is pretty much catch-up day, and I need to finish up some stuff by tomorrow if I don't want those plans to interfere with my weekend plans! O the humanity! Superhumanity, even! LOL

So anyway, sorry for the lack of posts this week, but this stuff happens. :-\

Have a great weekend, and see you next week!

Might be slim pickings this week...

Hello, my little nerdlings!

Just a quick note that my real life plate is pretty full this week, so it might be slim pickings this week in regards to posting on my blog. I'll try to post something on Wednesday, but don't be surprised if I don't post again until Friday (and there is a possibility I might not post then!)

I will also still be posting on Facebook, so if you've already friended me, then you can at least keep up with me there. Next week for sure I'll get back to snuff. Until then, take care!
