Sad day but there is happy days ahead!!

Today was bitter sweet.  I went to one of my favorite places here in Greensboro.  But, in two weeks, because of SCAT’s rules, I will no longer be able to be dropped off at the location that I’ve been dropped off on Lawndale, the Walgreens on the corner.  No fault on GTA and even no fault on Walgreens. It’s something that I have to go through to be a good rider. When I make a trip with GTA, I have to make a trip to a physical address. It can’t be a shut down location and I prefer to be dropped off at this particular corner because it has the only accessible ramp that any wheelchair user can navigate.  In the next two weeks, this location will be closed and if I tell GTA that I want to go to this location, they’ll tell me I can’t because there’s no Walgreen’s there anymore.  So, being the conscientious rider that I am, I prefer to make it easy on the bus drivers to drop off at different locations around the city.  After today, I told them what’s going on and they understood and I will be back when the weather is nicer when I can wait outside for the bus instead of having to go inside to seek warm shelter. Even though Acme Comics is not closing they are in the middle of the shopping strip but no ramp to use, oh there is one at  Elizabeth Pizza but people park on it without a care for others that need to use the ramp!!

On a brighter note, Greensboro is one of the best cities for this reason: it has more than one comic book shop and the new one that opened up in the last year is closer to my apartment and for the time being, will work out perfectly for my needs.  I thank you, Ssalefish Comics for being there and being one of the best comic book shops in Greensboro.

3 AWESOME BOOKS!!!

In the past few days I have read 3 Comics!!

Yes all 3 were Batman books and 2 are a part of the Metal series!  I can not say this more I LOVE THIS  SERIES!! I know no one is perfect not even Batman, this story goes down the path to show even “doing good” can turn bad later!!

The 3rd Comic is very different, at first look at the cover and reading the name I thought “oh great, another Comic writer going down the BS with everything wrong in America is the white race”!!

I got it anyway and I was wrong it is a different take of The Joker role and I loved it and want to read where this story goes!!!

As you know I love watching/reading The Walking Dead!!  Everything about the show is great, it is a way to get my anger out (even though just watching/reading it). 

My favorite person is Negan a no nonsense guy with no grey area (LOL)!!

Up to now I wished there was a book just telling his story, now there is;

For me it was a must read!  I read it in one afternoon, yes Negan is a piece of work, a bit messed up but I found a soft spot in him too…

A few Batman book’s…

Last week I read the tie-ins to Metal and I was not disappointed in every book in this storyline helps fuel the love of Batman in my life!!

 Plus it took me awhile but I got through The Long Halloween, I loved this story that had a BIG roll in my favorite Batman movie of all time!!

Two comic book shops..

Batman-Day_ss_232398388-696x348

What a day, we went to 2 Comic book shops here in Greensboro!  The first we went to Acme Comics had a ok time but I did get a big question answered about my Dark Tower books, thank you Peter!  I have to be real with you I feel Acme dropped the ball the year for Batman Day!  Batman Day is and could be a big day for every LCS but it seems to me that Acme treated today as every Saturday, not a BIG DAY FOR DC COMICS…


After we went to Ssalefish Comics, had more sales and we witnessed a big buy for a Wonder Woman comic, it was awesome to see that comic go to a good home!!  Yes it is Batman Day so what else did I get (for my birthday) a Negan Bat;

Yes Jay gave me a great deal on lucille!!!

LOL

Don’t get me wrong…

Batman-Day_ss_232398388-696x348

On Saturday Sept 23, 2017 is Batman Day!

I love Batman!!

This day has been on my Birthday month for a few years now (I just started reading comics a few years ago) Batman day was on my Birthday a few years ago.

This year there is a problem that is not sitting well with me!

 This year’s Batman Day posts and posters is this;

Do not get me wrong, I love women, I give them all the credit in the world!  For me women have the toughest job in the world and the moment men can have a baby on their own this will not change!

But why change Batman Day to Harley Quinn Day??

Why not give her a day like in the month she first appeared in comics?

Batman is a top seller for DC Comics and just think DC Comics would get more money!!

To me it is like what Marvel did to DeadPool, over hyped him to almost kill him off to the point that people don’t read his comics as much.  DC Comics is shoving Harley Quinn at us that I for one do not want anything to do with her!!

For me Batman day is just for Batman ONLY he is not sharing!!!

Love the artwork!!

As you know I am loving this Metal storyline so much that I am willing to say I’m happy for the New 52, just to get this story!!!

Along with the storyline the artwork that is coming out is MIND BLOWING!!

Here is 2 of my favs and a picture of my dark side…
