Metal like Raptor Armor. May 14, 2009 Posted by Mookie
I've updated the LINKS page to include some more high quality webcomics that I think you fine folks should check out if you haven't already. The most metal of these new additions, Nine-Shot Sonata, has a latest updated featuring a metal character reading a fairly metal book, but I happen to be biased about these things.

Speaking of metal and things I'm biased about, I'm very happy that Darkhawk is getting the spotlight lately in War of Kings: ASCENSION. It's a pretty nifty read so far and I've come to like the War Of Kings as a good old-fashioned cosmic comic.

Why am I biased about Darkhawk? Well, most people regard the nineties as a ridiculous time for comics, and most of those people would be right. However, I got into comic books in the nineties and there were a few heroes who were cast aside as the years went on but I latched on to them for various reasons. Among them were Speedball, Sleepwalker, and Darkhawk. Sleepwalker never really made it out of the early nineties and don't get me started about what Marvel did to poor Speedball. Darkhawk, however, has been blessed with good writers nowadays who realize he was an interesting concept and his armor looks really, really cool.

So here's my keeping my fingers crossed that Darkhawk stays in the spotlight and doesn't end up like poor Sleepwalker or Speedball.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
