Touched by Kevin Smith and John Layman!

The title may be a bit misleading, and given Kevin's work, your mind may have to lift your mind out of the gutter, but last night while live tweeting during Comic Book Men, one of my many tweets was "favorited" by the main main himself:

https://twitter.com/#!/thanosrules/status/173980790261153792

I know this is lame, but this is what Twitter is all about right? I mean why else would people spend hours sending 140 character messages into the universe if they weren't asking for a little attention from someone they admire?

UPDATE (02/29/2012): In the same week I was "touched by Kevin Smith", I was also, "touched by John Layman". I think I can die happy now. lol. I am so lame!

UPDATE (03/04/2012): Again! But twice this time! lol First Time @9:12PM 03/04/2012 and Again @9:18PM 03/04/2012. :D

Update (03/14/2012): Okay, this time I made a whole new blog post for my recent Kevin Smith Experience!

New 52's All-Star Western - Review Gallery

Inspiration taken from titles like, "The Quick and the Dead", I decided to name my New 52 - All Star Western issue reviews in kind (after the first issue of course, when we started having two different stories per book).

I have to say, I really enjoy this genre of comic book. I have always been more into Super Heroes and Marvel, so this is a completely different stride. I have always enjoyed gritty western dramas though... so this was a perfect fit!

Here are my reviews of this series:

  1. Issue #1: Targets and Opportunities ( 5.0 / 5.0 )
  2. Issue #2: The Damned and the Cursed ( 4.5 / 5.0 )
  3. Issue #3: The Bounty and the Sacrifice ( 4.5 / 5.0 )
  4. Issue #4: The Stolen and the Avenged ( 4.5 / 5.0 )
  5. Issue #5: The Darkness and the Ghost ( 4.5 / 5.0 )
  6. Issue #6: The Secret and the End ( 4.0 / 5.0 )
  7. Issue #7: The Quick and the Doomed ( 5.0 / 5.0 )
  8. Issue #8: The Ensnared and the Vengeful ( 4.5 / 5.0 )
  9. Issue #9: The Silenced and the Avenged ( 4.8 / 5.0 )

NOTE: I will be appending to this as I review more of this ongoing series.
