January 4 Trivia Rankings

January 5, 2017

Happy New year, my Quizlings! Thanks to all who came out to play in the first game of 2017. We said goodbye to some familiar faces, found out why it’s not easy being green (although apparently it’s easier for some teams than others) and, hey, it’s a little early for 4/20 but California runs at a different pace, I guess.

Lots of prizes, lots of trivia and lots of fun. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Oh – and keep posting those fliers! Spread the word and share the love.

Here are this week’s team rankings. (more…)

Check Out My Giant-Size Man-Thing!

March 7, 2016

Seriously. This is a real comic book. Marvel published it in the 1970s.

Honestly. If you thought titles like Brother Power, The Geek and Not Brand Echh were bizarre, try walking around a comic convention and asking folks if you can see their “Giant-Size Man-Thing.” 

Heck, I’d wager someone may be putting me on some special watch list even as I type the very words. But that doesn’t matter. I collect comic books. I can name all the forms of Kryptonite and recite the Green Lantern oath by heart (both Golden Age and Silver Age). You want to test the mettle of a real fanboy? It’s someone who can say “Giant-Size Man-Thing” without irony or derision.

So, hey. My Giant-Size Man-Thing. Check it out. I’m quite proud of it. I’ll show it off to strangers, if they ask. It’s in fine condition. And when I’m not displaying it proudly, I keep it in a Mylar sleeve.
