WEEKLY COMIC PICKS FOR 6.4.2014

This week we review Nailbiter #2, Rise of the Magi #1, Big Trouble In Little China #1, Black Widow #7, and Original Sin #3.

We took some advice from one of our viewers and tried to make this episode as spoiler-free as possible which also makes for shorter, more digestible episodes. Check it out and let us know what you think.

We hope you like this episode. Until next week, let us know what you’re reading in the comments!

PAST EPISODES
DAILY GRAFFITI: WASTED YOUTH EDITION
This piece of street art was submitted to our Geek Graffiti Flickr Group by 2nez. It reminds me of the days when my mom would go to the mall to get her hair did and give me five bucks to spend at the arcade. Five bucks which immediately went into one of three games: The Simpsons, X-Men, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Kids these days will never know how good it used to be.

I DON&#8221;T OWN A BIKE, BUT I&#8217;D BUY ONE JUST FOR THIS PIKACHU BIKE TIRE RIM
Check out this Pokemon bike!!! No sure if that rim is custom or they sell them somewhere, but I kind of need it in my life.

DAILY GRAFFITI: PAINTED ON A DARK KNIGHT EDITION
Check this sick Batman piece. I can&#8217;t tell if it&#8217;s a wheatpaste or a stencil, but apparently it was painted on a Dark Knight. Geddit? Because jokes.

CHECK OUT THIS CLASSY MAGIC: THE GATHERING BAR IN JAPAN

Shibuya, Japan is home of Mint Shibuya, a sports bar/trading card game shop hybrid featuring elegant seating for Magic duels, a swanky bar, and they even serve food - not Slim Jims and Combos like most game shops, but REAL food!

The pictures above really don’t do the place justice. Check out the video below for a better look.

Man. My local game shop holds Friday Night Magic in a crusty old basement. In the summer time, it gets so hot that moisture from the pipes in the ceiling drip down onto our heads. Super annoying/kinda’ gross. Maybe I should move to Shibuya.

DAILY GRAFFITI: THAT ONE TIME THANOS AND CARNAGE HUNG OUT EDITION
Here&#8217;s a ginormous street art mural of Thanos and Carnage wearing what looks like the robe Rocky wore to the ring. The full piece features the handywork of Merlyn, Kooltaste, Hose, Stom500, Uncle Ho, DarkElixir, Jack El Diablo, and Wise.
Check out a snazzily edited video of the creation of the piece below.

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE: 1/6th SCALE RAIDEN FIGURE FROM HOT TOYS
No, the above image is NOT a screen cap from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It&#8217;s an action figure.
[[MORE]]
From high-end collectible brand Hot Toys Limited, this is the excruciatingly detailed 1/6th scale figure of Raiden, the main character from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. If this is anything like previous Hot Toys releases, it will have somewhere around a gazillion points of articulation and cost way more than most folks can probably afford to spend on an action figure. This is high-end stuff people! But that&#8217;s also what makes it so awesome.
If Hot Toys releases are out of your price range, there&#8217;s always the almost-as-awesome Revoltech Yamaguchi Series Raiden complete with cardboard box accessory and slice-in-halfable watermelon.

CUSTOM CAPTAIN AMERICA AIR JORDANS BY SEKURE D

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4 and shoe & toy customizer extraordinaire Sekure D (check out our video interview with him here) went all out on a pair of Jordan 6’s and embellished them with all the iconic details of the O.G. Captain America suit. At first glance I though these were a legit licensing crossover which is a true testament to the artist’s skills and super clean lines.

Sidenote: Anyone catching the early premiere of Winter Soldier going on in select cities tomorrow?

SOMEONE MADE A CUSTOM ADVENTURE TIME MAGIC DECK AND IT&#8217;S FLOOPIN&#8217; AWESOME!!!
As a huge nerd for all things Adventure Time and Magic: The Gathering related, my body and soul reacted in unusually provocative ways to this deck of Magic cards altered with Adventure Time art.
[[MORE]]
As a die-hard Vorthos (look it up), there&#8217;s so much attention to detail to appreciate in these. For instance, the artwork for Ogre Battledriver normally depicts a giant beast whipping his minions to do his bidding. The Adventure Time version, on the other hand, shows Xergiok, the jerkface goblin king who was driven out of his kingdom by Finn and Jake for smacking on goblin hams like the true jerk that he is.
There&#8217;s loads of other cool stuff too like Flame Princess as Young Pyromancer, little flame dudes as red elementals, and even Finn wearing Jake like a suit for Titan&#8217;s Strength. Check out the gallery below.
















And they even made this super slick playmat to keep the cards looking minty fresh. It&#8217;s an homage to the Card Wars episode. 

Speaking of Card Wars, did you know Card Wars is now a real thing you can buy and play with your friends? There&#8217;s a Finn vs Jake deck and a BMO vs Lady Rainicorn. They were originally priced around $20, but on account of them being sold out everywhere and everyone wanting them because they&#8217;re awesome, expect to pay around $50 for the Finn &amp; Jake one and almost $80 for BMO vs Lady. Craziness.
