Go into any Christian Book store, any book rack at a pharmacy, or any book section at a local grocery store; and you’ll find tons of different devotionals geared towards different groups of individuals. You’ll find devotionals for outdoorsmen, teens, mothers, hazel-eyed / club-footed / caffeine-addicted / dudes in their mid 30’s… wait, I still haven’t seen that one yet… The point is there are devotionals for almost all groups, but what’s rare is finding one designed for superhero/comic book geeks. Scott Bayles has joined the ranks of those attempting to fill the gap with his new 40 Day devotional, “The Holy Heroes Devotional.”
In this series, his journey to becoming the greatest hero of all time leads him to Gar’s Bodega Hero Supply Shop. There he and his fellow Customer Service employees work and stock the convenience store. While serving the hero community, they often find themselves fighting off the evil Boxman. Lord Boxman wants to shut down the Lakewood Plaza Strip Mall that Gar’s Bodega is located. Through various adventures and humorous experiences, K.O. learns what it means to be a hero while inspiring his fellow heroes around him. So why do you need to jump on Hulu right now and watch it?
For this week's Extra Tuesday, Captain Nostalgia returns with a devilish Captain's Comic Log. This month he's taking a look at Marvel's 1984, "The Blue Devil." You may be familiar with this character from his appearance in DC Universe' Swamp Thing, but was his comic worth reading?
Even if you removed the dialogue from the pages, you could still "feel" what was happening in the story. Crott's use of color in storytelling is a long lost art that I wish modern-day comic artists would take the time to remember.
