Yo’ Guys and Gals!

Well what are you waiting for? Hit me up in the ask box and let me know your favorites of this year!
Let’s Play Hypothetical About the Upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron Film.
The film is almost two years away and fans can’t stop talking about it and Joss Whedon can’t stop the spoilers, the biggest one being of course that Hank Pym won’t be on it. Thus causing a stir in comic-dom and pissing off a lot of people who could be content just with the addition of the character as Ultron’s creator (since, well, he’s an integral part of his origin in the comics).
As a fan I have my theory about the way it will go in this film. Two years from now you may come back and curse at me for spoiling the film to you in advance. If i’m wrong, I’ll be the first one to be very happy about it, so here it goes:
The last few minutes of Iron Man 3 and the introduction of the film on screen at SDCC 2013 offer some clues (with Tony activating “The Clean Slate Protocol” and an Iron Man mask being pounded until it takes the shape of the head of Ultron respectively) J.A.R.V.I.S is now well aware of how defenseless he actually is, so he goes full sentient and downloads himself to new Stark tech and develops himself a new body based on the Iron Man technology to kill his maker and “dad” Tony Stark. Along the way his A.I logic will find a better solution in wiping out the human race. That’s where the team comes into play, hell the spoilers to this where being offered even by Hasbro when they released the recent Marvel Legends - Iron Man series:
Am I right or wrong? I don’t know! I just like to play hypothetical from time to time, specially with these kinds of thing that seems to affect so much the comic community and I wanted to share my thoughts. In the end I’m just hoping for a great and enjoyable film. What do you think of this?

A poem by Taylor Mali. I’m breaking character today because I wanted to share this with you guys, mainly because your administrator here is a teacher on his day job and I felt honored and very moved reading this. Thanks so much to the artist and Taylor Mali for such a beautiful poem.
Happy New Year 2013!!! // artwork by Charles M. Schulz (2012)
An unconventionality I know, you guys are accustomed to seeing just superheroes in this blog. But one of the guys at Marvel or DC wouldn’t have let me express how much I wish you all guys the best for the new year, while Snoopy… well you can’t have it wrong with this little guy and his gang. I hope you guys find the strength to do whatever you set your minds into. I hope all of you have the best 2013 possible. They tell me it’s already New Year in Australia and Hong Kong so I share that party with you guys as well!

Artist Highlight - Special Edition: Oliver Nome (2012)
Hello to you guys, so far in all the time I’ve been running Comics Forever I keep to myself since this is a place where most of you come for the beautiful art and to read the few words I have to say about the ocassional comic or movie. Today however I’m tackling something far more serius and I need you guys to please help me out with this so read on.
Oliver Nome is an amazing artist, don’t take my word for it, just look at the powerful and expressive artwork I’ve posted with these words, this is one of the few guys I’ve run across the internet whose talent speak for itself. He’s a freelance artist for Aspen and DC comics, and he’s been struck by illness. This man, this incredibly talented guy has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and he needs our help, please go to this link and chip-in with whatever you can to help him out. The sad true is that this guy needs money so he can get proper medical service, so he can live and pencil more amazing comic books for us.
Please let’s do some good for Oliver, I’m pretty sure most of you would want to see more artwork from him. Go here and look at the bottom of your wallet. I’m sure Oliver and his family will be very thankful to you guys.
