Micro-Hero of the Week: Vampire Edition!

October 26, 2009

Greetings, one and all, and welcome to the second of our very special theme weeks – Vampire Week! Brain-Cravers took center stage last week, but this week belongs to the Bloodsuckers!

As we are apt to do, we start out with a very special micro-hero from EG, and boy, is it a special one! See, over the weekend, EG was able to watch a special episode of Wolfman Mac’s Chiller Drive-In. Wolfman Mac is the latest in the fine history of Horror Hosts (such as Sir Graves Ghastly, The Ghoul, and Dr. Shock) that we’ve had in the area. This weekend’s movie? None other than that 1922 silent classic, Nosferatu!

Inspiration struck, and the Steve Austin Book Club is proud to present one of the most famous vampires of all time, Count Orlok!

Keep a lookout, because we’ve got a week of vampire goodness ahead!

Welcome, friends, to the first of two very special weeks here at The Steve Austin Book Club.  This week, we focus on the life-challenged brain-cravers everyone loves – ZOMBIES!

And, to start us out this week, a special micro-hero from EG.  For those of you that have not seen the cinema masterpiece known as Plan 9 From Outer Space, you have lived far too sheltered a life.   Rectify this missing part of your life as soon as possible.

For those of you that have seen this epic film, we are proud to present one of the greatest zombies of all time – Tor Johnson as Inspector Daniel Clay:

Stay tuned throughout the week for more zombie fun!

Micro-Hero of the Week

October 12, 2009

It is almost mid-way through the month of October!  Where does the time go?!?

Here is a special heads up for you, our faithful readers:  The last two weeks of October will be special focus weeks here at The Steve Austin Book Club!  We are not gonna let the cat out of the bag as to the themes we have planned, but we think you’ll enjoy them.

One clue?  Okay.  Halloween does occur this month, doesn’t it?  Yeah, those two weeks probably have something to do with that.

And, speaking of Halloween, since these don’t fall in line with the themes for the next two weeks, but should be put up this month…

EG put a lot of work into this week’s micro-hero… or, actually, micro-heroes!

That, dear friends, is none than your hosts, EG as Batman, and OG as Robin!  Yes, costumed for Halloween, but long has EG hassled OG to dress up for a convention, but to no avail.  And, so, EG turned to the mighty art of the micro-hero to bring his dreams to life!

(Dreams may be a bit strong…)

This is probably as close as anyone will ever get to OG wearing green panties and showing off those fine legs of his.  ‘Tis the world’s loss I say…

Micro-Hero of the Week

You know, there’s nothing that quite compares to monkeys and apes.  Folks love ’em.

And, when you put monkeys and apes in comics?  That is, like, twice as awesome.

Put that monkey or ape into a comic AND make him a detective?  My friends, that is pure, straight from the fountain awesome sauce.

This week’s micro-hero is the culmination of the amazing formula – Detective Chimp!

Once merely a highly intelligent chimp, Bobo became a full fledged detective after taking a dip in the Fountain of Youth.  The effects of the Fountain gave him eternal youth, amped up his intelligence, and gave him the ability to speak to any living creature.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are proud to present, EG’s micro-hero of Detective Chimp!

The Red Hulk – or Rulk!  Who is he?  Does anyone even care anymore?

That’s right, folks – Rulk has been around for over a year now, and they still haven’t told readers who he is.  And, while EG doesn’t personally read the Hulk books, OG has been strung along this whole time!  Sucker!

So, this Rulk guy, whoever he is, is the red version of the Hulk.  He is tactical and conniving, and uses mammoth weapons to kill things like the Wendigo and Abomination.  And, evidently, when he gets angrier, he doesn’t get stronger like the normal Hulk… he gets hotter.

Huh?

Okay, whatever.  Here is EG’s Micro of Rulk.

Micro-Hero of the Week

Alright, folks, a special treat is in store this week!

EG loves M.O.D.O.K.!  Seriously, though, who DOESN”T love a giant head in a floating chair?!?

He is the product of AIM (Advance Idea Mechanics), who decided that they’d use technician George Tarleton to create a genetically altered and advanced creature, the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Computing.  Well, as is apt to happen whenever science plays God and creates an abomination, said abomination rebels and kills its masters. 

M.O.D.O.C. replaced “computing” for “killing,” and the rest, as they say, is history.

And, remember, EG is always open to suggestions for other characters to make, so let us know who you wanna see!
