Hideo Kojima Plays Favorites

People who have at least two or more children never claim to have a favorite. Mommy and Daddy always say that they love their kids equally, so as to not make one of them feel inadequate at some level. Not so with Hideo Kojima, the father of the Metal Gear franchise, or more specifically, all the characters who inhabit that world. In his interview with IGN he sits down and talks about a handful of his favorite characters, most of which seem to be from Metal Gear Solid 1. It’s an interesting interview to say the least. Rarely do we see Mr. Kojima talk so much about characters he holds near and dear to his heart, aside from Snake, that is. Enjoy

The Last Days Of FOXHOUND (reissue 015 – And Hijinks Too

[The Last Days of FOXHOUND is a fan made comic that I stumbled upon a few years ago while perusing the Internetz as an MGS fan. This strip, created by a fellow MGS fan named Chris Douchette, ran this comic from 2003-2008. I was lucky enough to run into all 500 completed pages and wanted to share them with all of you readers. I’ll try to reiterate each and every consecutive page as time goes on. Most of the humor stems from the going on throughout the MGS series, so those who aren’t too familiar may find themselves slightly lost. My solution: play the MGS games. You guys wouldn’t be here anyways if you haven’t at least played MGS1. Anywho, enjoy!]

Calvin & Hobbes (1985-1986 Reissue 006)

[Calvin &  Hobbes is one of the best comic strips to have come into existence in the latter part of the 20th century. This strip, created by the awesome Bill Watterson, ran for a decade, from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995. As a kid I discovered the first ever collection of strips in book form self titled Calvin & Hobbes in a local bookstore. As I glanced through the first few pages I became instantly hooked. It centers on a 6 year old boy Calvin, and his stuffed toy aka best friend come to imaginary life Hobbes, and their adventures about life. It’s a truly remarkable series that I’d like to share with you boys and girls. As that sharing goes, I’ll do my best to pepper in a strip as time goes on. Enjoy!]
