Ok.. this is a weird one.  The Suncoast Video in the mall over by my work closed down about 6-8 months ago after that big announcement that they were scuttling over half the stores.   I was sad to see it go because they were one of the last, great alternative sources of specialty market action…

Not much of a post, but I saw this headline today and was wondering how many other comic readers had the same thought I did? Unusual Meteorite Found In Kansas.   -Jason

Looking Out My Office Window When I lived in Dallas years ago I probably visited this Toys R Us at least 3-4 times a week. It was only about 7 miles from my office, so it was a pleasant lunchtime excursion to see what was new. Now it is literally right below me in the…

I’ve been a collector for as long as I can remember. When I was around three years old, I collected sticks. Yes, ordinary branches that had fallen from trees, which came in all sorts of varieties and limited editions. After that I picked up stuffed animals whenever I could, the more unusual the critter (plush…

Okay, so some of you are wondering what the deal is with this Superfly guy.  I mean he seems like a hip cat, right?  Nice, cool guy maybe, or pretty damn funny. Or annoying or totally full of himself or really cute or superhot or kinda like Jared from Subway? (I have been called all of…

Well, here it is – for some crazy reason the nutjobs running this show decided to give me a public forum, a place where I can wax nostalgic and whim to my heart’s delight.  So get ready for some waxing and whimming I guess.

Hello again everyone and welcome to Tales of a Would’ve-Been Action Hero by other means.  As you are now aware, the AFI Columns section is no more.  It has evolved into a set of those latest existence-justifying, Do It Or You Don’t Count human activities, blogs.  Can I get a Woot! in the name of progress…
