Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers TL;DR

OK, so I thought this was going to be a Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers cartoon. It’s not. But it does animate Throg, which is awesome.

I love love love love this comic. So while the title implies that you aren’t going to read it, you should. You should buy it for your kids because it’s totally kid-friendly. It’s also adult-friendly. It’s a true all-ages comic!

The concept is simple: the animal sidekicks of various heroes get to be a superteam. If that doesn’t sound great to you, your loss. If it does, pick up a copy of the trade paperback and enjoy.

Description:

And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes were unaware of a threat greater than all of them could handle. And on that day, a teleporting puppy scoured the world to assemble a team of animals to fight the foes no single beast could withstand! Strap on your collar and hop on-board the adventures of LOCKJAW, LOCKHEED, REDWING, HAIRBALL, and an all-new FROG THOR! Collects Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #1-4.

Right?!?!??!?

Remember Fart Cop?

Remember Fart Cop? No? Yes? No? OK.

Fart Cop, exclusively at DaddyTips.com

Fart Cop 1

Fart Cop is the first comic strip DaddyTips published. It was written by my kids and began on January 12, 2011. Yes. That’s right.

It’s now been long enough that we wanted to remind you of its existence, because it’s really fun. Fart humor! What could be bad?

(As a reminder, fart humor got me into Redbook Magazine.)

Read all seven editions of Fart Cop here.

Marvel And Star Wars Comics Sale at Amazon

Marvel And Star Wars Comics Sale at Amazon! I know, we do this a lot. Push digital comics sales. And sometimes it’s when there’s only a little bit of time left. But if you read digital comics — and you should — there are some sweeeet deals to be had. Only valid on December 29, 2017, so hurry up.

Hey Kids! Comics!

Hey Kids! Comics!

Here’s the general link. Specific suggestions follow.

Ms. Marvel Volume 1, $1.80:

Man did I love these comics. An actual modern take on the “kid gets powers, has no idea how to deal with them” story. Plus it focuses on a culture that I know very little about. Give it a try.

Infinity Gauntlet, $2.20

The movie is coming out soon, and this is way cheaper than spending $450 on the hardcover.

Planet Hulk, $5.00

Oh man did I love these comics. Thor Ragnorak is based in part on stuff from here. And you can follow that up with…

World War Hulk, $1.80

Hulk mad, but Hulk SMART. Hulk mad and smart is very dangerous for those he is mad at. And oh, is he PISSED.

Hawkeye Vol. 1: My Life As A Weapon, $2.20

This was a pleasant surprise. Hawkeye buys a brownstone in Brooklyn and he’s blind, I think. It really wasn’t what I expected at all. Plus the art is genuinely different and overall very awesome.

And…

Marvel Graphic Novel #1: The Death of Captain Marvel, 80 cents

80 CENTS! FOR ONE OF THE BEST COMICS EVER! JUST BUY IT!

OK! Some Star Wars comics:

Star Wars: Darth Vader Vol. 1, $2.20

Vader in modern comic book form is highly intriguing. Think about it. What do we know about him, really? I don’t mean Spongebob Whinypants from the prequels, I mean VADER. What’s he like? These comics offer some insight.

Star Wars Vol. 1: Skywalker Strikes

Let’s go full Skywalker family, bros! (Sorry about that. I’m not really a “bro” type but it felt OK here. Is it OK? Do I have to give myself a wedgie now? Will it hurt?)

Just hit the link below and explore. Shop. Today only. December 29, 2017. May the force be with you, True Believers.

NY Comic Con Will Not Watch Your Kids

In case you were wondering, NY Comic Con will not watch your kids for you. Seriously. Look.

NY Comic Con Will Not Watch Your Kids

The fact that NY Comic Con had to post this on their website means people have asked, likely multiple times. “Can you watch my kids for me while I go cosplay and run around and buy comics and stuff?” “Um, no.”

Have fun! But leave your kids at home, or be prepared to watch them yourself.
