Superhero Sworn in to City Council

A recent Washington Post article, written by Cleve Wootson, highlighted the swearing in ceremony of Lan Diep. Diep donned his replica Captain America shield as he took his oath of office as a member of San Jose’s City Council. This true nerd and collector of all the nerdy things stated that “There are few opportunities for a grown, adult lawyer to whip out things that some people would choose to classify as toys. So they’ve languished in my closet, safe from scratches, thieves and those who would mercilessly mock me.” Awe, Lan Diep, we would never mock you. We commend you! Stay Nerdy!

Review: Marvel’s Captain America – Civil War Prelude

The new Captain America movie is doing really well, and I’ll most likely go to see it in a week or so, once the initial crush dies down a little. While I wait, I decided to check out Marvel’s new graphic novel Captain America – Civil War Prelude, collecting all four issues of the Civil War Prequel comics, plus the first issue of the 2006 Marvel Civil War storyline that inspired the movie.

If you’re a diehard fan of Captain America and Iron Man and/or you’re a completist who’s dedicated to having everything Marvel’s released for those two characters then this is a graphic novel for you. Everyone else? You’re better off just seeing the movies again.

Review – Captain America: Civil War

I just got back from Captain America: Civil War and wanted to write a review while it was still fresh in my brain. I really liked it, and I definitely thought it was worth the wait.

That’s it. Goodnight everybody!

Kidding. It’d be a pretty boring review if I didn’t have at least a couple minor quibbles. But honestly, not as many quibbles as I thought I’d have: this one was hyped half to death, and it stood up to the hype better than I expected.
