What We Ultimately Lose From The End Of The Ultimate Universe

So the Ultimate Universe is ending – theoretically – with Cataclysm. I mean they have Galactus there (instead of Gah Lak Tus) and he’s going to eat the planet.

The Darke Files: KFC Buffet

I’ve been a fan of the Trashford Files because I to enjoy eating food that is horrible. In fact I will vehemently admit that I take pleasure out of it – my taste buds are wired so that the last unadulterated tomato, grown glistening on the vine, natural, pure and ripe was like a flavorless mound. I’ve forced friends into late night visits to White Castle and Rally’s – benefits afforded by my residence within the Buckeye State. For the past 7 years though, I have been blessed to live near the golden demographic for fast food. Those people who represent all niches that the fast food companies desire. I’ve seen new foods early, I’ve seen foods that never were introduced to the greater world. And being on the cusp of the midwest proper I’ve seen restaurants pander to worlds exotic for I live in The Darke County (Ohio).

Marvel Season One: Spider-man and The Avengers

I haven’t touched a lot of the old school comics before when it comes to Marvel and DC (and those I’ve read are because of SuperMOOC). So when the opportunity came via the library system to check out the Marvel Season One books – the updated origin graphic novels retelling the origin stories of some of the better known heroes I was game.
I really picked up the titles in order of interested and was able to touch the first few pretty quickly so the reviews are in that order as opposed to some kind of chronological one. This time I checked out Spider-man and The Avengers.
