Hi all! Shanty here posting on Robbie’s blog while he sorts through pictures.

What can I say? We’re awesome exciting people.

Anyway, I found this old comic book cell or frame (Whatever, ask Robbie.) about Wonder Woman facing one of the biggest enemies known to women still to this day… Vanity.

Girl, you know it’s true. ooo ooo ooo…

Enjoy, and hopefully I’ll post something to my own blog sometime soon!


xox, shanty


I’ve had my issues with Alicia Keys over time. Her debut album was decent, but WAY over-hyped. Then her first single from her second CD was over-indulgent (a phone conversation right in the middle!? Come on…). However I’ve come to terms with my dislike of Alicia and realized, she does have some excellent songs. Her new song is no let down. It’s not groundbreaking or earth-shattering, but it is a great R&B song, and I’ve been enjoying it since I heard it for the first time on the radio last night. And you know I’m a sharer… here ya go…

Alicia Keys – No One

Bonus – My favorite Alicia Keys tracks:

Alicia Keys – Karmastition (Mash-up with Stevie Wonder)

Alicia Keys – How Come You Don’t Call Me (Prince cover)


Avengers: The Initiative #5 – What I don’t get about these big crossover things, is that they have this team of superhero trainess really thinking they could fuck with the Hulk. Really? The Hulk!? Who just took out Iron Man, Black Bolt, Mr. Fantastic, & conquered an entire planet of warring alien races!? I guess they really wanted a tie-in… but I can’t imagine anyone on this team doing much more then getting caught between the Hulk’s toes!
Black Panther #30 – More of the Fantastic Four in Zombie-ville. Not a bad arc not a great arc… just more of the same average chugging along we’ve come to expect on this title.
Fanatastic Four #549 – I’m digging the return of Reed & Sue. I’ve been skeptical of the whole Black Panther & Storm on the FF, but this arc has been decent reading. Plus… Kang returned last issue. Or at least it looks that way!
The Last Fantastic Four Story – I didn’t think I was gonna snag this one, but it’s a light week… & it’s written by Stan Lee… aka God! Plus art by John Romita Jr. 2 Marvel legends… why did I think I wasn’t gonna buy it?? Shame on me!!
Spider-Man: One More Day Sketchbook – Preview of the new big storyline that’s gonna shake up everything for Spidey. Allegedly he & MJ are gonna split. If the book from Free Comic Book Day is any indication, Aunt May probably isn’t gonna die though.
World War Hulk: X-Men #3 – The end to the quickie mini for the X-Men tie-in to the big summer crossover. I’m excited about this 1, because last issue saw a chunk of the extended X-family coming in to save the day. And I’m a sucker for seeing a bunch of characters in one book!
