Stan Lee & Spiderman

Happy 90th Birthday Stan Lee!

Thank you for getting me interested in reading.

And also getting clogged generation of your readers

into reading. I always knew you were more than

that friendly and grandfatherly voice I heard on the

Spider Friends Saturday morning cartoon in the 80’s.

You taught us a lot of important lessons.

Like heroes must be moral and that they also have

feet of clay and can be flawed like us mere mortals.

Thank you for your creating and ce-creating some of

the most unique characters in comic books and pop culture

today. Characters such as Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk,

The Invincible Iron Man, The Avengers, The Uncanny X-Men,

Daredevil, The Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Magneto and

many others.

And also thank you for making New York City a real city

where all the characters know each other and interact with each other.

This revolutionary idea for a reality to these larger-than-life action pack stories.

Thank you for making Marvel comics were the greatest comic book companies

ever are making comic books the art form they are today.


Happy 50th Spiderman Birthday!

Thank you for 50 years and 700 issues

excitement and an action-packed web swinging adventures.

Thank you for showing us anyone can be a hero even a skinny teenager

from Queens. And also thank you Spiderman and Stan Lee are teaching us

“With great power there also comes great responsibility” truly words to live by.

Even though you finally met your heroic end recently I say long live Stan Lee and Spiderman!

To celebrate I am watching The Amazing Spiderman tonight.

Well it’s December 23, 2012 and we are still here.

No Zombie Apocalypse, no Leviathans, terrifying Dragon or Rapture.

I guess someone had 12 crystal skulls. I only had 2 crystal skull vodka bottles.

The Mayans believed 12 crystal skulls was the only thing that could stop the Apocalypse.

Whatever happened we are still here.

I can tell you how it happened it was the winter solstice and Christmas around the corner.

With that thought I wish all my friends, family, freaks, geeks and zombies.

A Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Freaky New Year!

Christmas and the Apocalypse are coming!

By Adam Blasucci 12/10/12

It seems now Christmas is after Halloween if you ask Madison Ave.,

but for me it doesn’t start until I see Spiderman balloon and Santa Claus’ appearance

on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Then it’s officially Christmas!

So let the silly Christmas commercials, specials and Christmas music

invade our world like a zombie apocalypse.

Two things about the end of the world.

Two days later it’s Christmas.

And whatever happens will happen.

The Mayans didn’t know the calendar

would keep going. I think their downfall was

was being discovered by the Spanish,

too many human sacrifices Temple of Doom Style

and playing soccer with human skulls.

Made them think the Apocalypse would come

AMC has announced a fourth season for The Walking Dead, but the series will need a new showrunner with the departure of Glen Mazzara.

From the network:

“AMC also jointly announces with Glen Mazzara today that for future seasons, the two parties have mutually decided to part ways. Glen guided the series creatively for seasons 2 and 3. AMC is grateful for his hard work. We are both proud of our shared success.

“Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on season 3B as showrunner and executive producer.”

Mazzara had replaced the TV series creator, Frank Darabont, who abruptly left early in Season 2.

“My time as showrunner on The Walking Dead has been an amazing experience, but after I finish Season 3, it’s time to move on,” Mazzara said. “I have told the stories I wanted to tell and connected with our fans on a level that I never imagined. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey.”

Said The Walking Dead creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman: “I am in full support of both AMC and Glen Mazzara in the decision they have come to and believe the parties came to this decision in the best interest of the future of the show. I thank Glen for his hard work and appreciate his many contributions to The Walking Dead and look forward to working with him as we complete post production on Season 3. I am also excited to begin work on another spectacular season of this show that I know means so much to so many people. This show has always been the result of a wide range of extremely talented men and women working tirelessly to produce their best work collectively. I believe the future is bright for The Walking Dead. Thank you to the fans for your continued support.”

Said executive producer Gale Anne Hurd:

“I am appreciative and grateful to Glen for his hard work on The Walking Dead. I am supportive of AMC and Glen’ s decision and know that the series is in great hands with one of the most talented and dedicated casts and crews in the business. I look forward to the show’s continued success.”
