NOTE: Hi – Carlos here. The internet hates Steve. He uploaded an article to go with this, and not only did the internet reject the article, it shut down his connection for at least 24 hours. Wow – was what he wrote really that bad? Find out for yourself tomorrow when Mr. Garrett’s connection returns and he posts his preview article. For now, here’s the card:

The Pull List: Episode 66
(1:02:09) Jeremy from Signed In returns to heckle Craig and Sean as they take a look
at THE ZOMBIES THAT ATE THE WORLD #1 and ROBIN #183. Also Sean talks about Chris
Giarrusso's non-Mini Marvels work in the G-MAN trade from Image. Don't miss the new
track from comic book rock band, KIRBY KRACKLE at the end of the show! We'll be
playing their music for the next few weeks and having them on the show, so if you
like thier music go check out their album at www.kirbykracklemusic.com!
Because YOU voted for it, we give you…Morbius!

Love the team affiliation there! Quite a mouthful.
For the past couple of weeks one thing has been dominating my VS thinking, and that is the upcoming (still some time away actually) UK Nationals. I have decided that at the very least I want to put up a good show defending my title, and that means working out how to deal with a couple of very different formats.
I plan on tackling each in the next couple of weeks and giving my initial thoughts at least before I begin a process of focused testing to see what actually works and what just sounds cool on paper. With that in mind this week I’m going to be thinking about Bring Your Own Two Teams (For anybody that doesn’t know – Golden Age, you pick any two teams who are considered to be crossed-over and can only use cards that reference one of those two teams).
This week we're joined by our Special Guest Richard Vaughn. We discuss the glory days of VS, where we're headed, and Cliff's dabbling with Magic. All this an a lot more!
We want to draw your attention to three great Vs. events coming up this month. If you attend, and we hope you do, please grace us with your tourney reports!

Last night I sat in front of my PS2 playing Guitar Hero, Legends of Rock with my wife. Mrs Kamiza was attempting Metallica’s “One” for the first time. I watched as my beautiful better half powered through the chords dropping the occasional note. All the time in the background Beelzebub sat in the background swinging a massive hammer in time to the thrashing guitar solo. As I followed his movements I thought to myself “That’s not a hammer. This is a hammer!”
The Pull List: Episode 65
(1:04:31) It's a week full of five star books and the guys feel a little guilty giving so many raving reviews; that is until they remember how awesome it was reading that many awesome books! This week they give special attention to FABLES #81 and the hefty tome that is THOR #600. Then Craig explains why Dr. Grave from the DR. GRAVE AND THE UNHOLY TWELVE trade paperback is the "hero" that you love to hate.

Well with a lovely new site to write for it seems up to me to try and write lovely new articles, and hopefully now the start of year rush is over I’ll be back to more regular writings. The only problem with that is that I need to come up with lots of new subjects to write about so any ideas people have will be great.
