We had some friends over tonight to play a couple of tabletop games. Given the time constraints(we have to deal with kids that don't know what sleeping in is). We played two games. The first was Smash Up by AEG. This is a game in which you take two decks, such as dinosaurs and pirates, … Continue reading Board Gamin’
Today was the first time in two years that I'd been able to get down to my local shops and check out the festivities. It's always nice to get down and see what's going on, as well as to see the comic community out in full force. My son was along acting in his duties … Continue reading Free Comic Book Day 2018
This is one of the first issues I received a free digital copy of. I've got to say that one of my favourite things about Marvel is the free extra digital issue you receive when redeeming the digital code on a hard copy purchase. On to the comic! The Cover This cover was done by … Continue reading Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme #1
Last weekend my family went out on our first back country camping trip. We had some friends that had an extra site booking so we went out to meet up with them. We loaded up the car, packed our packs, threw the little red wagon into the back of the car, and off we went! … Continue reading My First Experience with Back-Country Camping

Call me weird, but I like to read the book that the film is based on, even though it has driven me nuts in the past. Either way, it gave me a good excuse … Continue reading The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower Book 1

This summer we went on our longest camping trip as a family yet. We took two weeks and went out to the west coast. Outside of the first night's drive the trip was a lot of fun! We got to see some beautiful scenery, wildlife, and family members we haven't seen in years. The first … Continue reading Recapping B.C.
So it's been a while since I've written anything, as I've been on vacation. Time to catch up and write a couple more travel related blogs before getting back to the usual. On our return leg we stopped in the city of Castlegar in British Columbia. Apparently it's the 'City of Sculptures'. It's also in … Continue reading Castlegar: City of Sculptures
So I don't actually have a physical copy of this issue. Marvel has been providing additional free comics when you purchase a hard copy. This is the most recent one that I've received. It's a great opportunity to look at something you might not normally pick up. The Cover The cover is imposing. Thanos is … Continue reading Thanos Returns! Thanos #1
Ok, I actually bought this a few months ago and am only getting to reviewing it now. But I had some really good DC titles to look at, and a course I had to complete for my job. Time to get this one off my to do list! The Cover The cover looks pretty good. … Continue reading Champions #4: Conflict!
