“Real Ghostbusters” Slimer review by Diamond Select

The little green spud is back as part of series 10 of Diamond Select’s “Real Ghostbusters” action figures. Packaged with three heads and another part of the firehouse diorama, Slimer looks just like his cartoon counter part, and is a worthy addition to your Ghostbusters collection.

You Should Be Reading “Weapon H”!

For someone who doesn’t read a lot of Hulk comics, I sure review a lot of them!

Today is different, though, as we take a look at “Weapon H” from Marvel Comics. This 12-issue series wrapped up not too long ago, and continues the story of Clayton Cortez AKA The Hulkverine that began in Greg Pak’s “Totally Awesome Hulk”.

In “Weapon H”, Clayton seeks to make sense of everything that has happened to him since he was first experimented on. Along the way, he is reunited with his wife, makes some new friends, and maybe saves the world a few times. It’s a feel-good, heart-wrenching, and gut-ripping good time that is so out of this world and original, you will be surprised how much fun this book truly is!

“Weapon H” is collected in two volumes, with the first one at this link here – https://amzn.to/2TEvvng

And volume 2, “War for Weirdworld”, at this link here – https://amzn.to/2CckeQX

“Real Ghostbusters” Winston Zeddemore Figure Review – Diamond Select

Bustin’ makes us feel good! Today we look at Diamond Select’s expansive Ghostbusters line of action figures, with series 9 – the start of their “Real Ghostbusters” figures. Based on the classic cartoon and Kenner action figure line, we kick things off with Winston Zeddemore, and if his figure is a sign of how good this line is, my wallet is going to be very empty very quickly.
