Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 29th, 2015

Originally posted on Indy Power Rankings:

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 29th, 2015 YoungBucks6-29

#1 Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)-This was an EASY pick at #1. Not only did they win the PWG World Tag Team Titles from Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett on 6/26, they followed that up with a win vs. Brian Fury and Julian Starr at XWA on 6/27. A 2-0 week gets the Bucks their second #1 ranking this year. With them picking up commitments all over the place, will they still be able to keep a strangehold at the top of the indies? We shall see, but one thing is for sure, they pick up gold where ever they go as they now hold the PWG, IWGP Junior, SCW, 2CW, FWE, and IWL Tag Team Titles right now.



#2 Monster Express (Akira Tozawa & Masato Yoshino)-The Monster Express stable continues to dominate…

ROTF 4 title revealed: LIVE BY THE CODE

Originally posted on Christopher L. Bennett: Written Worlds:

As usual, 8of5 at The Trek Collective has been alert to the latest updates on Star Trek news, and that includes the news that the title and pre-order information for Star Trek: Enterprise — Rise of the Federation Book 4 has now gone public. So I can now freely say (heck, I probably could’ve said months ago, but I wasn’t sure) that the book is called Live by the Code. It’s a title that has several meanings, but one of them is a play on computer code, since this novel continues the Ware narrative begun in Uncertain Logic.

Here’s the pre-order link on Amazon:

Order Live by the Code on Amazon

Nobody else seems to have it up for pre-order as of this writing.

The Collective‘s item includes a preliminary blurb for the novel, but it’s just an excerpt from one scene in my outline…

Why Don Rosa Is One Of Comics’ Greatest Living Creators

Despite having no formal training as an artist other than a degree in civil engineering, Rosa’s pages are beautiful and detailed, with his characters possessing a slapstick weight to them that makes every single gag land beautifully, coupled with an incredible knack for building amazing story premises that deliver as the foundation for both comedy and adventure. He also has an impressive knack for character work, especially in stories that are nominally meant to always return their characters to the status quo by the end of each adventure. They’re always instantly and engagingly defined, and in the case of Life and Times, seeing Scrooge’s fall from the hope and optimism of youth to this adulthood as a bitter, jaded industrialist before ultimately ending up as an isolated, lonely recluse is one of the best character pieces I’ve ever read.

Don’t worry, though: The story ends with Scrooge meeting Donald and the Nephews just in time for his first appearance — taking him right back to that same status quo that fans already know and love.

Panini America 2015 Father's Day Recap Main

With Panini America’s 2015 Father’s Day promotion almost entirely in the books now, it’s safe to say that this latest edition, like the three blockbuster versions that came before it, ranks as another resounding success. Once again this year, the Panini America Father’s Day promotion transformed hobby shops across North America into bustling holiday destinations filled with feel-good buzz, warm father-child bonding moments, monster hits and several days worth of social-media must-sees.

In short, the promotion accomplished exactly what it was created to. But don’t simply take our word for it. Below, we’ve captured feedback from a handful of hobby-shop owners who witnessed the benefits of the promotion firsthand and were kind enough to share their feedback with The Knight’s Lance.
