There exists only two LEGO X-Men sets. This is appalling. Once upon a time, Marvel’s CEO was royally annoyed at the X-Men because the movie rights were owned by FOX Studios, so no X-Men products were being made. But all of that is settled. Marvel and Disney own the X-Men again. So why haven’t they worked out more LEGO X-Men sets?
There are a ton of LEGO Marvel sets in general…but they’re starting to repeat themselves. Everything has either Spider-Man or Carnage or Venom in it. And there are only so many times you can give Spider-Man a new monster truck or helicopter before it becomes ridiculous. How many Hulkbusters does Iron Man need? How many themed motorcycles can they make? The time has come for Marvel and LEGO to embrace the wide world of the X-Men and give the people what they want!

The third season of the TV show Titans is due out…I think any year now…on HBO Max! We’ve already seen the live action Red Hood costume, and now they’ve revealed the new, more comics-accurate Starfire costume!
Here’s actor Anna Diop in the flashy purple Starfire costume!
I think it looks neat! It also looks a little awkward, but then a proper comic book Starfire costume was probably always going to look awkward. At least she’s not being made to wear a purple metal bikini on national TV…or HBO Max.
I still need to watch the second season of Titans.
So I got introduced to this show a couple months ago and I immediately binged all 8 seasons because it’s just that good. Letterkenny is about some good old boys in rural Canada, and I believe it’s available to watch on Crave and/or Hulu. Season 9 is coming out in a month!
Consider this a strong recommendation from me: go watch Letterkenny. Half an hour episodes of delightful comedy and wordplay. That’s good watching.
Season 9 debuts on Christmas Day.
Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! The holiday isn’t until Thursday, but this feels like a good time to say something nice about Thanksgiving. Be safe. Wear your mask. Social distance. Do all that good stuff.
Against my better judgement, Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Force #14, due entirely to lack of competition. None of the other comics I read this week were as fun.
Meanwhile, I skipped the newest issue of Spider-Woman. Not much happened. And I’m still enjoying Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Oh, I know! I got around to watching a Hulu show called Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and it’s very fun! Highly recommended.
Comic Reviews: Batman #103, Juggernaut #3, X-Force #14, Hellions #6 and Cable #6.Read the rest of this entry
We’re still three weeks away from the (latest) release date for Cyberpunk 2077 and I am still very excited about this game. The delays have not dampened the hype for what could be the game of the year…not that it’s had much stiff competition. Still, to ease the wait, CD Projekt Red put out another trailer!
And the game still looks great! It still looks incredibly immersive! A couple different gaming websites have put out articles this week about getting some solid playtime in demo copies, and the game sounds like everything I hope it’s going to be.
So now it’s just a matter of sitting backing and waiting for Dec. 10. Thankfully, I’m on vacation that week, so I imagine I will lose several days to the game!
