If you think a comic with a title like Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers sounds like a sci-fi romp, you’d be right. [Read more…]
As you well know if you’ve been paying attention, I have been playing an ungodly amount of Marvel Heroes lately. I have fun with nearly every character they have available, even though I have more fun with some than others.
