"The Coming of The Avengers!" - Nuff said!

I don't know if you've heard or not...they're keeping it kind of hush hush and not marketing it much at all...but there's a movie coming out this week based on Marvel Comics' "The Avengers".

No...seriously...I'm not making it up.  I'm not surprised you HAVEN'T heard of it.  Kind of a small indie film, I guess.  

It looks pretty good through...I hope some people hear about it and maybe go see it.

In the meantime, here's how Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby brought the whole ever-lovin' blue-eyed thing into being 49 years ago!!!!!!!

Yep..even back in 1963, Loki was a thorn in their sides!

Dig in!

This book is cover dated September 1963.  Understanding how comics were post dated so they'd stay on the stands longer...that means it came out about May or June of '63.  And seeing how I wasn't born until August of that same year, I guess you could say I've been waiting for this movie to come out since before I was born.

I am drooolin', kiddoes!!!  My ass is tinglin' to see this'n!!!

So please...have mercy on the poor producers of the film who couldn't afford an advertising budget.  Tell a friend to go see it.

Here's hoping it's as good as they say...which is better!

Talk to you soon.

Wait a second. Hold your horses. There's a new movie coming out based on the comic book adventures of the superhero group known as the "Avengers." That sounds pretty hot. I wonder if Robert Downey is going to be in it. For those that may not now, he played the comic book character named "Iron Man" in a quiet little film a couple of years ago.

I'm dying to see this one, too. Mostly for the Hulk!

I hear there's a possibility that Downey may make a brief 2 hour cameo in the film.

Tell a friend, Mykal...every ticket helps!

That Kirby image of Clown-Hulk juggling Circus animals is still among my all-time favorite comic-book moments ~!
