Ooga-Chaka Ooga-Ooga

I'm not too familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy comic and nor will I be. When a fandom hits the big screen, I like seeing it through the eyes of someone who doesn't know what it's about, judging it based on the two hours in front of me.

In recent years, it's my understanding that many of the characters of GoG were taken from other elements of the Marvel Universe. Drax the Destroyer and Gamora, to name two, were from the Infinity Watch, a comic I DID read on a regular basis. I'm a big fan of Jim Starlin.

Anyway, this means a lot because Jim Starlin and Gamora are both influences on Morgalla.

Not this Gamora:

Not this Gamora:

But this one:

Which brings me to something else....

Oh and a note to DC - Marvel is kicking your ass.

Leonard Nimoy's Health

My thoughts are going out to Leonard Nimoy who is fighting a terrible illness. I only wish the best for an artist whom I so greatly admire.

Harry Loves Hermoine

In a recent interview, JK Rowling admitted that she wished that Harry and Hermoine get together instead of Ron and Hermoine.

To which I say...DUH.

It wasn't just the movies and the chemistry of Dan Radcliffe and Emma Watson but also while reading Joanne's writing, you just see that they both have more chemistry than Ron and Hermoine could ever have.

I could clearly see Ron having a thing for her and a love growing within but I never could never see him truly making her happy. Even while reading the later books, Ron and Hermoine's relationship felt forced and horseshoed into the series at the last minute.

Oh well, live and learn.
