If you adjust for the fact that I grew up in South Carolina, I wasn't raised in a particularly religious household. I mean, we went to church every now and then, but it wasn't, like, a thing, you know? There was, however, one publication in my household that I read with a faithfulness and devotion that bordered on religious fervor, that I looked to for guidance in times of struggle, and that may have even helped to shape my world view more than any other: Nintendo Power.
This week, the first thirteen years of the magazine were uploaded to the freely accessible Internet Archive, and looking back through them, I'm pretty sure they're why I still, to this very day, have a completely irrational hatred of the Sega Genesis. It wasn't just the secret codes or hyped up previews for Daydreamin' Davey that kept me hooked, though. Those were definitely interesting, but there was something else in each issue that kept me wanting to read every single month: The comics.
Listen: We can agree that drawings are cool, right? I mean, they're great. We talk about them pretty much all the time here at ComicsAlliance. But the thing is, drawings have their limitations, and one of the key limitations is that they are not gigantic pieces of actual metal that look like killer robots with buzzsaws. It's just a flaw of the medium.
Fortunately for us, Aurelian George has created pieces of art that are that exact thing! That's not all, either -- in addition to crafting awesome arcade sticks, George has created metal sculptures inspired by Portal, Pac-Man, and Wolverine. Check out a few below!
Avengers artist Jerome Opeña took to his Instagram account to wish his followers a Happy Valentine's Day in the best way possible: he recorded himself drawing Starfox, a.k.a Eros, a.k.a. The Sexiest Avenger. Also, there's music. It's pretty great, you guys.
This week, Marvel's releasing the first issue of "Avengers Prime," a book that focuses on Thor, Iron Man and Captain America. It's pretty clear that those three guys are the best of the Avengers but there's a pretty steep drop down to the worst. That's why today, Chris Sims and David Uzumeri are here to take a look at a few of the third stringers who have been proud to Assemble over the years!
