SORT BY Relevancy
Look at all the wonderful movies out there just waiting to be watched! Seems these days, many of the highly coveted films are those derived from comic books. The most popular are those being delivered by superhero comic book giants like Marvel (The Avengers) and DC (Batman). What you may not know is that there are many graphic novels that have been made into movies, who's characters don't have super human strength, nor do they have the physical ability to fly. In this weeks conversation, my co-host, Internet movie critic Larry Domkowski of Must See Movie, and I, Greg Morgan, the Reel Movie Guy, will do our best to stay away from superheroes and gravitate more toward the heroes from other graphic novels that were made into movies.
Our show will be broadcast live on Blog Talk Radio and from 11:00 pm until 11:30 pm EDT, then continuing our conversation on Google Hangouts On Air from 11:30 pm-ish until 12:00 am-ish EDT...

The series is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war.

BATS AND BONES~
Bats and Bones is IPPY award winning author Jeffrey Hickey's second work for children. This collection of spooky tales for middle school aged children and above is a subtle masterpiece of fright and emotion. Hickey wrote all the stories, the lush music, and does all the voices for the audio book. His wife, Karen Kiser, contributes the cover art, along with some penny whistle and a little piano. The inside illustrations, layout and design are by Rachel Betz, who also designed Hickey's first work for children, Wages Creek.
After a week off we are back for another edition of The Fantasy Six Pack Hour.
This week we start off by discussing how you need to start preparing for your Fantasy playoffs. An immediate way to do this is to make some trades before the trade deadline, which is tomorrow at Noon in standard ESPN leagues. We let you know some of the players you should target and who is good trade bait.
Next we want to talk about the level of play in the NFL recently. Have all these injuries finally caught up to the teams and affected the level of play on the field?
We finish with our Week 12 prep by going through the injuries you need to know about, waiver wire claims you need to make and making our sleeper/bust predictions for the week.
Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
