News and Gossip

Comic Books to Soldiers in Iraq – “We have a ton of overstock back issues that will never sell in our store. Our customers don’t generally buy back issues. They buy the trades.Regardless of your stance on the War or your politics in Washington, there are Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors stationed overseas that are just like you and me. They are our friends, brothers, sisters, moms and dads, and they should have comics.”

I couldn’t agree more. It’s little gestures like these that show the men and women in our military that we love ’em and appreciate all they do. The idea was cooked up by A Comic Shop’s owner Jason Blanchard who served our country honorably for 6 years. He hopes other comic shops will follow suit and we all spread the word. Way to go, Jason!

Online Community for the Poconos – FINALLY! A fun place for people living in the Poconos to get together, share information, and do it in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

Sure there are other places to go, buuuuuut. Right now one is dead in the water (and run by a guy in New Jersey, no less), and the other has people jumping ship amid censorship, moderators banning people en masse, and even reading their private messages. (Sorry, Pocono Crybaby… but I told you so).

So if you live in/visit the Poconos, I wholeheartedly recommend “The Speakeasy” at Our Pocono Community.Com. Good times, friendly people, a place that will make you feel at home. Say hi to me (Erox) when you get there. 😀
MySpace is sued over child safety – Here we go again! Once again parents that don’t supervise their kids are looking to make a few bucks off of MySpace as a result of their bad parenting.

Since Michael Jackson has left the country and Neverland Ranch is no longer available for parents to drop their kids off in exchange for a nice hefty lawsuit… letting them mingle with predators online is the next best thing I suppose.
