Comic Book Fix: Avengers vs. X-Men Release Party and Review
Last Updated on Wednesday, 4 April 2012 05:39 Written by david golbitz Wednesday, 4 April 2012 11:00
To celebrate the release of the biggest crossover event in years, comic book shops were given permission by Marvel to sell the first issue of its much-hyped megaseries, Avengers Vs. X-Men, a day early. More than a thousand stores around the world, from the U.S. to Europe to Japan, held Tuesday night release parties for the epic showdown between Marvel’s two mightiest franchises.
Some stores hosted Marvel creators like Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction, while others held special sales for all the fans who came out, like Omaha’s Krypton Comics, which marked down all back issues to half price for the duration of the AvX party. Marvel is trying its best to make this 12-part series a BIG DEAL, especially with two would-be blockbuster movies being released over the next few months: The Avengers in May and Amazing Spider-Man (in the comics Spidey is a part-time Avenger) in July.
The repercussions from this event will be felt throughout the Marvel Universe for the next couple years, so it’s imperative that they get the kickoff issue right. So how did they do? Click the link for my review of the book everyone on the Internet will be talking about this week, Avengers Vs. X-Men #1, and check out a few photos from last night’s Krypton Comics release party.

Review: Omaha Welcomes the Return of Dr. San Guniary’s Creature Feature

When you think of a “classic” horror film, what do you see? Some things that might come into mind is a black and white flick, thunderstorms, a wolf howling and seeing monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein or the Wolf Man. Unfortunately, for many horror fans, those days are a brief memory of what a horror movie represents. Today’s standards use too many special effects and horrible story lines to make a movie go bump in the night (don’t even get me started on sparkling vampires). Well bringing back the “classic” horror film feeling is coming back, at least here in the Midwest.
On the last Saturday of every month, Aksarben Cinema welcomes Dr. San Guinary and his Live Creature Feature. Dr. San Guinary has been an iconic figure in the Omaha area since the 1970’s. Ever since the original Dr. has past away, fans have been waiting for the torch to be passed. I witnessed this on Saturday, and I must say it was a fun time.
