My favorite book of all time is The Stand by Stephen King. If you have not read this book you are missing out. Don’t give me that I don’t read horror novels baloney sauce because The Stand is hardly a horror novel. If anything it is adventure novel with some sci-fi elements. Think of it as Lord of the Rings meets I Am Legend. Well the good people at Marvel comics have created The Stand Comic book series and I have just finished the second of the thirty edition series. I can tell you that is a superior effort. The art is breath taking the story telling detailed with out letting the story drag. It is a must pick up for any King fan or comic book geek.
I have been MIA recently… Why? I am not really sure, I guess not much has happened that I feel is blog-worthy. Now I have recently been using the blog to pick football games (for entertainment purposes only). Unfortunately I was so bad it at picking games it got depressing, so I have suspended that for the time being (meaning forever). In other news my wife has started a blog (I know, what a copy cat right?) detailing our impeding arrival so feel free to take a gander if you are in need of a little sleep aid. Actually it is not half bad; however she does something called spell-check, which removes all the gritty realism of a blog like mine. Well feel free to give Sarah's blog a read if you like, but be for warned, she talks about be gassy.
