Next Week: From the minds of superstar writer Gail Simone and gifted artist Jon Davis-Hunt comes CLEAN ROOM VOL. 1: IMMACULATE CONCEPTION—a new vision of horror that takes you inside the locked chambers of sex, science, celebrity, and the supernatural.

Somewhere between the realms of self-help and religion lies the Honest World Foundation. Its creator started out as an obscure writer of disposable horror fiction who decided to change the world—one mind at a time. Now its adherents rule Hollywood while obeying their leader’s every command. 

That’s almost all that anyone knows about the movement—or is it a cult?—founded by reclusive guru Astrid Mueller. But reporter Chloe Pierce is sure that there’s something deeper hiding behind Honest World’s façade. Her fiancé was a devoted follower of Mueller, right up to the moment that he blew his brains out while holding a copy of her book. Now Chloe wants answers from the woman whose words command the loyalty of millions—and she’s ready to storm the top-secret sanctuary known as the Clean Room to get them.

But there’s more to Astrid Mueller than Chloe could ever imagine—and the truth that she’s about to discover is more astonishing than any of Astrid’s accomplishments, and more terrifying than any of her novels.

Book One spans John Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. 

Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew inspiration from the 1958 comic book "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story." Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience, testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

And now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream - and he's more put together than Bobby ever was. He grapples with his gay identity and his family and how to build a life and legacy he can be proud of...and become the best Iceman he can be! But, whether it's seeking his ex-girlfriend Kitty Pryde's advice on meeting guys, or delivering his latest news to his folks, it won't be easy - and that's before a gang of revenge-seeking Purifiers comes calling! And, still learning to be comfortable in his own skin, Bobby will meet someone who's perhaps too comfortable in his - the son of Wolverine himself, Daken!

Cocktails

Strawberry Vodka Slushy

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 ounces Simple Syrup
  • 4 fresh strawberries (hulls removed), plus some for garnish
  • 2 cups ice cubes

In a blender, combine the vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, strawberries, and ice cubes. Blend on high for 15 to 20 seconds.

Pour into glasses and garnish with strawberries.


The Iceman Cometh

  • 1 1/2 oz Virgin Island Rum
  • 1 1/2 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Orange Juice
  • 3/4 oz Cream of Coconut

Add ingredients to cocktail shaker without ice. Shake the shit out of it, pour into a snifter and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg


The Pink Iceman Slush

  • 1 Gallon ice-cream bucket (eat all the ice cream, but use the container to mix your drink).
  • 12 oz pink lemon-aide concentrate thawed out.
  • 16 oz vodka
  • 2 liters favorite lemon lime soda

Mix all the ingredients together in ice cream bucket, then put back in the freezer. 

After it has frozen into a slush, pull it out of the freezer and use an ice cream scoop to serve. 

Add more club soda or lemon lime soda to slush.  


Iceman Rainbow Frozen Surprise

  • Multi-coloured popsicles (or freezies)
  • All your favourite multi-coloured candies 
  • Multi-coloured sprinkles
  • Corn syrup
  • Water or Sprite
  • Rum or vodka (or any alcohol of your choice)

1. Pour a little corn syrup and candy sprinkles into two separate dishes. Dip the rim of a glass into the corn syrup and then into the sprinkles.

2. Line a dish with parchment paper and place the glass upside down on the dish. Let it sit in the freezer until the sprinkles and corn syrup are fully hardened.

3. It's time to create the rainbow layers! For each layer, use 1 coloured popsicle and 1 oz. of liquid (you can decide on the ratio of alcohol to water/Sprite) and mix in a blender to create a slushie texture. Then pour your first layer into the glass.

Tip: When deciding your alcohol to water/Sprite ratio, just remember that each layer will have 1 oz. of liquid. So you can make as dangerously boozy or virgin as you want.

4. Continue step 3 for each colour of popsicle. Make sure you work quickly and also place your glass in the freezer between making each layer to prevent the slush from melting.

5. Once you have stacked each layer of coloured slushie in your glass, crown it with all your favourite colourful candies. We recommend the Twizzlers, Jujubes, Nerds, and Rainbow belts.


Next Week: A gritty, graphic pulp fiction about the temptation, damnation and redemption of aging private eye Frank Grissel.

Next Week:  It’s Pride month again, so its time for: Pride 2: Electric Boog-a-loo

We start with Iceman: Thawing Out.  Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most - but what has he left behind besides a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships? And now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream - and he's more put together than Bobby ever was. He grapples with his gay identity and his family and how to build a life and legacy he can be proud of...and become the best Iceman he can be! But, whether it's seeking his ex-girlfriend Kitty Pryde's advice on meeting guys, or delivering his latest news to his folks, it won't be easy - and that's before a gang of revenge-seeking Purifiers comes calling! And, still learning to be comfortable in his own skin, Bobby will meet someone who's perhaps too comfortable in his - the son of Wolverine himself, Daken!

Ep 110 - Deadpool Max: Nutjob - Show Notes

It’s the Merry Marvel Movie Month of May.  Were reading comics connected with this years Marvel Movies.

This Week: It's Deadpool uncensored! Government agent Wade Wilson is too valuable an assassin for the brass not to take advantage of, but the unstable killer needs the guidance of a steady hand to be effective. It's Bob's job to make sure Deadpool completes his missions - by any means necessary. Unfortunately, Deadpool considers him something of a sidekick, and it's always the sidekick who takes one for the team. And Bob's got the bruises and mental scars to prove it. Bob manages to keep Wade focused on the likes of Hammerhead, Baron Zemo and the Taskmaster - and although he gets a glimpse of the assassin's tragic upbringing, it becomes clear Deadpool isn't the only damaged goods in this duo. 


Drinking Game

What about Bob? - Everytime  bob is hurt, take a drink. 

Fuck, Fuckity, Fuck-Fuck - Anytime someone says fuck or a version of fuck, take a drink. 

Spooge On the Page - Whenever it looks like there is just spoke on the page, take drink. 

Aren’t You Fucking Edgy - Anything that seems throw in just cause they are a max book, and can, take a drink.

Next Week: Scott Lang has never exactly been the world's best super hero. Heck, most people don't even think he's been the best Ant-Man! And the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that's saying something. But when the Superior Iron Man calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and an old enemy returns (sort of), Scott's going to get a chance to turn it all around and be the hero he's always dreamed of being. That's right, Ant-Man's starting a new life -a bold new adventure - and you know what that means! It means he needs to borrow some money. Sure he's been to prison! Sure he's been through a messy divorce! Sure he's been, um...dead. But this time is different! This time nothing is gonna stop the astonishing Ant-Man!
