IRON MAN 2 [Review]

Not only are Tony Stark and Iron Man one, but Robert Downey, Jr. completes the set. This role has been the part of a lifetime for RDJ, and he plays Tony Stark with such a perfect mix of glee and determination that it even makes this lifelong die-hard Batman fan sit back and say, “Bruce who?”

IM2 is nothing but pure fun from start to finish, and the movie just flies by. The action is non-stop, the dialogue is sharp and funny, and this is the perfect movie to kick off what promises to be a really outstanding summer at the movies.

Also, big thanks to everyone who came out to the PacSci IMAX to see this film with the Comic Stop Social Club. It was an great night out with everyone! Let's do it again sometime, okay?

Kick-Ass: Yes, It Did.

In every way possible, this movie lived up to its title. Kick-Ass is a really great movie and, a few cosmetic differences aside, an adaptation that stayed very loyal to its source material.

After being bullied, mugged, and since pretty girls generally ignore him, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides to give being a hero a try. He dons a scuba suit and mask, goes out and confronts a couple of car thieves, gets beat to a pulp, and then run over by a car. After six months in traction, he tries again. He’s still in over his head.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! We hope that everyone is recovering nicely from the craziness that is the holiday season.

The Once-A-Decade Sale was a huge success! We hope everyone had a chance to come by and score some sweet deals. Even if you were unable to make it in for the sale, come in this weekend and get a nifty Marvel 2010 calander absolutely FREE! We still have some of the "Origins of Siege" comics left as well but they are going fast.

We hope you are looking forward to our 10th anniversary this year. We sure are happy about it. We will be making The Comic Stop even better in 2010. Stay tuned because in the coming weeks we will have more big announcements that we guarantee will blow you away. Want a little preview? How about creator signings, movie premiers and exclusive merchandise that will ONLY be available at The Comic Stop? Got your attention now, don't we?

From Brian, Chris, George, Michael and Jim; may the new year bring you peace, love and happiness!
