HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANTHONY MACKIE!

Anthony Mackie a.k.a. Falcon turns 36 today.

Anthony, I hope you have a SUPER day. Like, one down here, one here, one here, one here day.

You may be Captain America’s sidekick, but you’ll always be that gay dude from What’s Your Number (another Chris Evan flick! AND STARLORD’S IN IT!) to me.

Hawkeye Shirts Will Benefit Signing Time Foundation

Matt Fraction’s critically acclaimed Hawkeye series isn’t really stopping in its momentum of being one of the best solo Marvel titles ever created. Now there’s a t-shirt to show your love for the title, as well as the love of others, thanks to WeLoveFine.com. This shirt features sign language in reference to Hawkeye issue #19 and will be sold to benefit the Signing Time Foundation, which aims to make sign language a fun activity that’s also very accessible for deaf children.

The shirt is $25 and available in purple and black in both men and women sizes. If you haven’t already read Hawkeye, I suggest you do, as it’s one of the finest comics out there at the moment.

DAILY GRAFFITI: ELEKTRA EDITION

Here’s some HUUUUGE graffiti inspired by Joe Madureira's (favorite comic artist EVER!) run on Savage Wolverine where Logan and Elektra take on the Hand.

Fun fact: The Hand is a group of evil ninjas from the Marvel universe. They were parodied in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics as… DUN DUN DUNNNN… The Foot!

WEEKLY COMIC REVIEWS 6.11.2014

Here’s our latest video review featuring comics released on Wednesday, June 11 2014. Gonna’ be completely honest, most of this week’s reads were complete caca and garboski with a few gems sprinkled in. Check out the video below to watch us talk smack on the turds and gush over the good stuff.

As always, comments on these are truly appreciated and you can help our YouTube channel grow by subscribing and clicking that thumbs-up button. It really, really helps.

Also, this show needs a catchy name. Weekly Comic Picks was dumb since it sounds like we’re recommending top picks, so this week I changed it to Weekly Comic Reviews, but that’s sooooo boooooring. I’m torn between Comic Book Casserole because I thought of it while making a casserole the other day, or Comic Book Real Talk because it has sass and we don’t mess around with silly scores, but that just sounds kind of generic.

Whoever comes up with the best name in the comments section wins a prize.

HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL MINISERIES COMING
Hawkeye is my single favorite Marvel book being put out at the moment. Deadpool is my least favorite Marvel character of all time in the history of ever. Marvel has decided to torture me with contradicting emotions by putting the two in a six-issue miniseries later this year. The promo pic up top actually looks pretty badass and as a Clint Barton fan, I can’t resist adding this to my pull list.
For more on why Deadpool is doodie, check out Albotas contributor Kevin Cortez’s nail-on-the-head rant about it here.

PAST EPISODES
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MYSTERY BOBBLEHEADS FROM FUNKO
Starting in June you’ll be able to pick up these blindboxed 2.5” GotG bobbleheads featuring your favorite band of space outlaws and their not-so-nice friends. I’m not usually a fan of bobleheads, but I have some of the other Marvel Funko stuff and it’s actually pretty awesome. And look how freaking cool Groot looks!!! Yeah, I’ll definitely be picking a few of these little guys up.

IF YOUR CATS HAD X-MEN POWERS

Most of the Internet thinks cats are nothing more than adorable little creatures meant to be laughed and aaaaawwwww'd at in YouTube videos. Few know the real truth: they're bloodthirsty demons prepared to unleash their evil wrath upon anyone who refuses to do their bidding.

Case in point: this video from The Pet Collective showing an accurate and scientific imagining of what it would be like if adorable little kittens had the powers of X-Men such as Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Magneto. Man, cats are dicks.

GIFS FROM OUR LATEST WEEKLY COMIC PICKS VIDEO

We’ve received a few requests for a GIF of YaYa’s Rupee moment from last weeks video (check it!). Here it is along with sad Hawkeye being sad. You’re welcome, weirdos. <3

If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our butts on YouTube for weekly comic reviews and some secret stuff coming soon. We’ll love you forever for it.

ROCKET RACCOON SPEAKS!

Here’s the first footage of Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. (UPDATE: My bad, actually THIS is the first footage. Thanks to nukaraxyn for calling out my shenanigans!) It’s kind of hard to form an opinion since all he only says two words. Hopefully they show more in the new trailer set to hit the Internets on Monday.
