New SD&D page+ Action figures with unnecessary motorcyles.LOL

I was Bored at work...I dont Know Im SORRY! My girl hit me with the Pokemon snap I look like Captain Molester.LOL

Whatsup Swordsmen?!
New Page post up on the site! See whats up with Stray Dog and Duck!

By the way, I was at work earlier, and saw an Iron man action figure on a motorcycle.

Now, we're all probably pretty familiar with every action figure known to man to have their own motorcycle (Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, Batman). I guess its a toy thing.

 But WHY in the Tony Stark Hell does Iron Man need a Motorcycle?? He can fly and hover and shoot deadly hand blast energy out of his suit...

But wait!!! He needs a drive..on land...
That I imagine is at least 30 times slower than he actually is in the Iron man armor. LOL.

 To think they pulled the wool over my eyes for the entire decade of the 90's. Ha!
 Every action figure I owned had a sport bike.
 What the f*&K?? "Zooming fast action"??? haha!

Face first in Dragonball's *FUNNY*

So swordsmen, as I strolled in to work today I immediately saw something hilarious. Although it was insanely funny, it kind of made me feel good about what I do.

Now, I walk into my job (Books-A-Million) Walk down the main isle, and to the left of me see a kid maybe around 12 or 13, knocked out face down in the biggest  stack of Dragon Ball Z comic's. HAHA. So being the guy I am, my first thought was to take a picture. The problem was, 1: I'm not supposed to have my phone while working the floor and 2: Id look a little crazy just snapping a picture of the kid in plain sight. Mind you, this kid was sleeping in the exact same position for well over 2 hours. I just knew I needed to get this photo but didn't know how was going to pull it off, until...

About and hour after I got to work, a few young ladies walk in, walk down the isle and immediately start laughing hysterically. I already knew what the deal was so i headed over to them. Then I ask while trying to hold my laugh in, "Could one of you snap a quick picture and send it to my phone?" Of course I expected them to say no but They all laughed, then one of the girls says "yea I'll do it!" Then she walks right in front of the kid, snaps it and immediately proceeded bust out laughing! Mission accomplished. The little guy didn't wake up for another hour and a half. Ha!

So thanks to the girls who just so happened to think getting this pic was as worth it as I did. I don't fault them for the blurriness on account of them laughing the entire time taking the picture ha ha. And big up's to the kid who was hardcore enough to fall asleep face first in the pages of Goku's epic shenanigans Lol. I long for the day someone falls asleep face first in the pages of Stray dog and Duck. Comics win yet again...

 He didn't move for 2+ hours....LOL!

New Post tommorow+The most influential book I've ever read!

Whats up Swordsmen?? New Stray Dog and Duck post Tomorrow!!!! If you're not caught up with the adventures of SD&D, Head over to the site and Sharpen your sword!!!

So, were all familiar with the great works of Dr.Seuss, correct? I'm indeed well read in this man's work. Cat in the Hat, Green eggs and Ham, Fox in socks and the list goes on...But i was unfamiliar with a particular book of his until recently. Its called "Oh the Places you'll Go!". I picked it up off of one of the display tables at my job yesterday. I stood right in the middle of the store and read it cover to cover. It maybe took 5 minutes to read, but it was absolutely the best book Ive ever read!! Its like the blueprint for life's journey on the path to success. I expected it to be another one of Seuss's wacky stories full of shenanigans, but it REALLY, REALLY spoke to me. That rhythmic little colorful book tells you everything you need to know while trying to follow your dreams.

Once upon a time I made a decision to just GO for it. I mean dig deep within myself, grow a pair and follow my dreams. I dropped everything I was "supposed to be doing" and made a decision to take my life into my own hands, and try to figure this thing called happiness out. Now, of course that sound's courageous and maybe even admirable, but the reality is its a lot harder than it sounds. There is countless setbacks and hangups. Sometimes it feels like no one is on your side. There are days when you just don't know where to go, or what to do and just down right want to give in. The fact is, most of the challenge of making your dream's come true is surviving the nightmares. But there is nothing better than knowing its all a part of the dream itself. Those night's you feel its you against the world, or the time you really screwed up, or even lost sight of the goal for a while,  just ENDURE it. Persevere and be THAT much closer. You can do it if you just...DO IT. And Soon enough you'll be able to look back on it all and perhaps write an amazing book too...
Big thanks to the first Doctor I knew by name. ;)

Green Lantern, Nick Fury, Half of Spidey(lol), Now THIS! We have a Hell of a roster now lol.

I saw this in the bookstore I work at and thought it was pretty damn cool. I never thought Id see a Black Superman...and (wait for it) The brother is also the PRESIDENT! HA! This is Epic man.
 So i don't want to spoil anything, but from what I've read so far, on another Earth in an alternate universe this guy is Superman. For some reason Superman thinks Lex Luthor hates him because hes black , and even though he has absolutely no problem slaughtering millions of people from time to time, Luthor feels it important to let Superman know he isnt a racist and in fact only hates everything else about him. So hes cool with him being a brother, he just wants to completely murder him LOL. and theirs some more stuff about Luthor having some time machine and what not. Its really interesting so far and I cant wait to finish reading it!

But superheroes are cool no matter the color of their skin..Besides, most of them are in costumes anyway. I just think its cool to see them different shades from time to time. Why not? Don't we all deserve to to have superhuman strength, climb skyscrapers and beat the crap out of people with powerful alien rings????

The Hiatus is Over !

The Hiatus is over SWORDSMEN!!!!!  


Man, I really missed Stray Dog and Duck while i was away from them. Sometimes, life gets in the way and we just have to bump ourselves back on track. Out of the millions and millions of other interferences, problems, challenges and hindrances we just have to get focused again and take control. Get back in the game!

I recently read a great article from Comic Book Marketer Phil Hampton, who I consider a friend that has really helped me along since I started SD&D. The article titled, "How to Deal with Failure"  really gave me a boost to get back on track, regardless of whatever else may have been going on in life at the time.

P.S - The Avengers..... WOOOOOOW! 

They couldn't of pulled it off better.

 Look out for the new post!!
