The news is slowly making the rounds on this Saturday morning, noting the passing of legendary actor Sir Sean Connery, who died at age 90. No immediate cause of death has been cited at the time of this update.
While an actor since 1954 with “Lilacs In The Spring”, the world at large most commonly knew and loved Connery as Iam Fleming’s James Bond 007, a role he began with “Dr. No” in 1962. He continued to work on Her Majesty’s Secret Service in “From Russia With Love”, “Goldfinger”, “Thunderball”, “You Only Live Twice”, “Diamonds Are Forever” and “Never Say Never Again”. There were scores of other roles to enjoy of course and others I liked fell to “Highlander” I and II, “The Rock”, “The Untouchables”, “The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and even “The Avengers”. That last one is a film version of the classic British show and not the Marvel Studios effort. What was your own favorite Sean Connery work? Be sure to chime in down below in the comments section to let us know.
More about the life and career of the great Sir Sean Connery is documented on his Wikipedia entry so we shall not repeat all of that. We wish his family, friends and cinema colleagues the deepest of condolences on his passing and thank him so very much for all of the entertainment he has left us with. Rest In Peace Sir Sean, may your journey to Valhalla be a safe one.

Hey Fiends, it’s another manic Monday and yes please remind yourself that this is indeed a Monday because thanks to the quarantine the days are starting to bleed together like one long blur. I am back once more to share that Dynamite Entertainment and ComiXology are continuing their collaboration to give you a stack of free digital comics. Last week I shared the Fourth Batch so click HERE to see them if you missed a post.
As we are a few weeks away from the 2018 “Free Comic Book Day”, I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to talk up some of the issues that most interested me. Now I pretty much lean towards the superhero and science fiction titles if anything but as I glanced at the numerous free provisions that will be out there on that first Saturday in May, noticed some others that were a definite curiosity. I’ve snagged the images from the Official FCDB Website but if you want a deeper overview of what each title is about you should click over to them care of THIS LINK. My plan for this narrative is to group the issues into the “Must Have”, “Would Like To Have” and are “Somewhat Curious” about. Let’s go.
MUST HAVE: My must have list is always the longest but that is depending on how many of the titles focus on superheroes that I enjoy each month. Some of these issues didn’t have the final cover art available when I downloaded but the list below is pretty straight forward so I don’t need to add much more to the mix.
