Tuesday’s Treasury: It came from outer space…

28 May

Both my husband and father love astronomy and astrophysics. I enjoy space-related things too, but I’ve sat through many an episode of The Universe where I thought my head would explode trying to understand String Theory and quantum mechanics. If you also have a space-lover in your life, or happen to be one, check out the treasury below for out of this world handmade awesomeness.

Alexia’s early birthday gift, Huntress!

It is now May 19th, which means that my next post will be all about Comicpalooza with Holly, Ryan, and Carmen! They’ll be getting to my house on Wednesday night, and the fun will stretch over into Monday. I’m looking far beyond forward to having close to a week with them, and the fact that we’ll be at Comicpalooza having fun and selling great jewelry makes it even more exciting!
On top of that, the post after next will be telling you all about Alexia’s super birthday party. I cannot believe my baby girl is about to turn two years old, but I am so looking forward to this party! I and my best friend, Tabitha, have put quite a bit of effort into everything already–seeing it come together will be very exciting. Hopefully she loves it, and loves every present that is given to her!

Free Comic Book Day!!

4 May

Free Comic Book Day

The holiest of comic book nerd days has come once again. Free Comic Book Day! The first Saturday in May of every year the God of comic books, Archie, bestows upon us a selection of free comics so fans, new and old, might take in the wonder that is comic books. And as an extra added bonus, Archie has aligned the stars so that Iron Man 3 is released on the same weekend. So go see Iron Man 3 and swing by your comic book shop afterwards. You can get some free stuff while you engage in a healthy discussion about the movie. And give thanks to Archie.

I’m going to ignore the fact that Free Comic Book Day and Star Wars Day collide once again, and just list off some of the free comics that may be available at your local specialty shop.

This is a reprint of the comic by Geoff Johns, Richard Donner, and Adam Kubert. It is the epic story of Superman fighting General Zod and his Phantom Zone cellmates. It is also going to contain a special preview of the upcoming Superman movie, Man of Steel.

The Walking Dead

Mom's Basement Comic Article about Free Comic Book Day by Bruce Osborne

Also, in a shameless plug to myself, check out Bruce Osborne on Facebook. I post/link all my stuff there, including chapters on a book I’m working on. Feel free to hit the ‘Like’ button as if you’re an addict.

I also write publish works of fiction on my Bruce Osborne Blog. Feel free to read, follow, or even hate my stuff. I don’t care if people like it, only that they read it.

There are too many movies for me to review in full, so I created a twitter account to give brief opinions on the many movies I view. If you wish to read my smart ass remarks, follow M.O.V.I.E. Reviewer @MutantOpossum.
