Thank you Dream!

Since last week, hundreds of eulogies and memorials have been written about professional wrestler Dusty Rhodes, who passed away at the age of 69 last Thursday. Many of them covering Rhodes' career and how he changed the wrestling industry, but I'm not here to do that. Yes, I could regurgitate Wikipedia facts and other things that anyone could find on the internet, but why bother? Other people have got that covered better than I ever could.
-The reason I decided to write something about "The Dream" is because he's a man who actually changed an aspect of my life. In 1989, while watching Superstars of Wresting, I saw a vignette advertising Dusty coming to the WWF:
I wasn't really familiar with Dusty Rhodes. I had seen him occasionally on the NWA show on TBS, but that's about it. I had no idea that he had really had a very long, successful career before that. I was excited, because he looked funny and interesting and then I saw him wrestle. This is, for some reason, the only full length Dusty match that I could find on Youtube, but it's your average Dusty WWF match. And yes, I'm writing WWF, because that's what the company was called at the time:
First, I loved the polka dots. Yep, I was that guy. The only one on God's green Earth that actually LIKED the polka dots. I didn't think they were mocking Dusty or belittling him in anyway, I just thought that they were something different and that they looked cool. What I was most impressed by, however, was how he moved. He FLEW around that ring, then got up and danced, the man had the energy of someone half his size!!! What I haven't told you, was that in 1989, at the age of 16, I weighed close to 250 pounds. So, here I was watching this guy, who weighed just a tad more than I did and he was flying around a wrestling ring in nothing more than polka dot underwear. It was then that I realized that just because a person IS overweight, doesn't mean that they have to ACT like they're overweight. From then on, I decided that it's important to be the person that you are, not the person that people expect you to be.
-So, thank you for that, Dusty. You taught a young kid a very important life lesson, that I'll never forget, and one I always hope to stay true to.

Ghostbusters: Get Real #1 is the best comic that you'll read tomorrow. Guaranteed. No, I haven't read ALL of tomorrow's comics, but I've read a bunch, and this one is the best, by leaps and bounds. Erik Burnham works his usual magic telling not only a good Ghostbusters story, but he tells a great Ghostbusters story that features two DIFFERENT teams of the SAME Ghostbusters!!!!!
-Dan Schoening's artwork is amazing. You're honestly going to think that they used cels from The Real Ghostbusters TV show, but no, it's all him. DO NOT let this book get lost in the shuffle tomorrow. BUY IT!!!!!! And hey, if you're in KNOW who to call!!!

Hot Girl Wednesday Starring...Cameron Canada!!!

I'll be honest, I don't know much about Cameron Canada, and honestly, I don't care. She's hot. That's pretty much all you need to know!

Looking to follow her on social media? Good luck! She doesn't have any (and good for her!). Buy some of her DVDs, I guess? You can find out a little bit more about her at her Freeones link, right here.

Iron Man is about to get awesome again!!!!!

Earlier today at the first Special Edition NYC, Marvel announced it's first post-Secret Wars title, and it appears that they aren't messing around. Debuting in October, Invincible Iron Man #1 will be written by Marvel Comics mega-star Brian Micheal Bendis and red-hot artist David Marquez. Um, wow. The thought of Bendis writing the words coming out of Tony Stark's mouth make me REALLY excited for this book. I have to confess, I don't read Miles Morales, but I checked out some of Marquez's artwork online, and I was VERY pleasantly surprised by his art. Bendis gave a in-depth interview to USA Today.....because everyone at Marvel does, and here's the bullet points concerning the new title:

-The series picks up 8 months after the events of Secret Wars
-There will be new armor(so don't you worry, cosplayers!)
-A bigger, all new cast. But don't worry, Happy and Pepper WILL show up
-Tony's getting a new love interest. One that's SMARTER than he is!
-Iron Man will be getting a new, bigger rogues gallery (OK, WHY does every creator feel that they have to do this when they come on a book?)
-The book will deal with the fact that Tony is adopted and we'll find out just WHO his biological parents are.

-Sounds fun, doesn't it? I highly suggest you read the full article over at USA Today, Here's what I'm liking (And keep in mind that this is the inaugural announcement, the ones that follow probably won't be as ground breaking): Good talent on books that haven't really had a chance at the spotlight before. Yes, I know that Warren Ellis wrote Iron Man. You know what else I know? Warren Ellis doesn't stay on a book for any measurable length of time. Bendis does. He just finished, what FORTY issues of All-New X-Men, he's at 27 issues of Guardians of the Galaxy, and he's also writing Guardians of Nowhere, and Guardians Team-Up, he's also been on Ultimate Spider-Man for over...too many issues for me to keep track of. The point is, he's going to stick with the title for awhile, and that's what it needs. To be consistently good over a long period of time, that's going to draw readers to that book, and that character. Second, the artist. Great choice. Love the new armor design and what they plan on doing with the armor will really stretch Marquez's artistic muscle. Can't wait to see it.

-Plus, I like Iron Man and I feel that he rarely gives the attention that he deserves. Sure, the movies were hugely successful, but that didn't exactly get reflected in the Marvel Comic Universe and in my opinion, it should have. For your enjoyment, here's a couple of my favorite Iron Man cartoons. I would post comics, but 1)I have no clue how to do that and 2)It's illegal. So, enjoy!!!
