Yes, Free Comic Book Day is a mere 10 days away and the super awesome team at the Collective of Heroes has put together a bumper-sized free comic for the occasion. I’ll pimp out the links once it goes up online.
Also, Avengers:Age Of Ultron has finally arrived. I’ll be seeing it on Saturday. I have a few friends who have seen advance screenings and they have been saying it is awesome. I AM VERY EXCITE!. From the clips/trailers, I think a World War Hulk could well be on the cards… fingers crossed.
Are you seeing the film this weekend? What are you’re thoughts on it?
See you Friday!
Art, writing, etc.
