Hey Nerds!

Friday! We made it, it's the weekend and it's time to get crazy.

GOOD DEED OF THE DAY

AICF and Mark Clayton Scholarship Golf Tournament, help some kids go to college, it's expensive. #NerdsUnite

THE NBA DRAFT

The NBA Draft was last night and it's crazy. There were seventeen trades during the draft and honestly I'm confused about a lot of team's direction. Atlanta clearly knows what they're doing, they've built a great young core. A lot of other teams though are clearing space and moving pieces all so only one of them can sign a hobbled Kevin Durant who might even just resign with the Warriors and be traded later. The Lakers who have been trying really hard to be the most incompetent team in sports lately continued the trend by buying a draft pick and adding a player, wait what? I thought they were looking to clear space for a Max player? Now they're adding players? Say what? I'm not sure New Orleans should be all that thrilled with their line up but I guess if you have to trade a superstar this is what it looks like.

WHILE YOU'RE OUT

As always and as usual, you should support your local Comic shop. There's some interesting stuff going on in Marvel, they're bringing the Infinity Gems back to the forefront and did so with Marvel's favorite X Man, Wolverine. The story culminates in Wolverine: Infinity Watch #5, which is supposed to set up the stones back in Marvel proper where they haven't been around for well over a decade. If Superman has always been your thing but you've never been able to get into it, DC launched Superman: Year One under their Black Label line. Black Label is a more adult approach to superheroes and DC comics has been really selective about what books come out under this line, so an intro to Superman is an interesting choice. If Indy books is more your thing then makes sure to check out Lab Raider #1 from Black Mask, they're taking a lot of risks and telling new stories with new superheroes and breaking a lot of new ground. Check this thing out.

WHO ME?

Tonight I'll be up at The Adventure Begins playing Heroclix with Joey Savage, we'll be hanging out and having a good time. It's BYOB and a great time, so why aren't you going to come hang out with us? You should, you really, really should.

NOT THAT YOU ASKED

So hopefully, by the time you read this, I'll be releasing my first complete digital comic book. I am SO PUMPED about this next step. This is the next step in me pushing and developing my career and I am super excited. This is hopefully a big and great next step for me. Fingers crossed and thanks in advance for the support.

A heated debate took place on First Take today when Domonique Foxworth claimed that Chris Paul was still an elite player.

Ryan Hollins vehemently disagreed with Foxworth's take and stood up and walked away from the debate desk.

Make sure you check out the entire segment, it's highly entertaining.
