Amazon or drive to your local comic shop and pick it up today! The latest trade paperback collects Power Pack (1984) #18-26, Thor (1968) #363. When I was a kid I used to go down to my local drugstore and pick up a comic or two. "Power Pack" was at the top of my list. I loved it! Then Marvel went and did something silly. Starting with issue #26 they decided to only sell "Power Pack" to the direct market (i.e. comic shops only). What prompted this I don't know, but what it meant to me is I could no longer get "Power Pack" since the town I lived in didn't have a comic shop. I had tried subscribing to "Power Pack", but Marvel's cheap shipping methods made me decide to never do that again. All they would do is take a brown paper sleeve with the address on it and wrap it around the issue to be mailed leaving the ends exposed to the elements. Not to mention the issue would almost always get ripped, torn, mutilated, bent in half, destroyed, etc. Also, to add insult to injury, when Marvel made the switch to the direct market, they also stiffed me out of the last two issues of my subscription. So I was supposed to receive issues #26 and #27 in the mail, but never did. Thanks Marvel, I really appreciated that.

Did you know that the Wii version of "Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings" has a secret unlockable game hidden inside it? Well it does and it's none other than the fabulous "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis!" While "Staff of Kings" is a fun, but short, action game, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is an amazing example of classic point and click adventure game goodness!

Probably the greatest car chase ever filmed comes from the 1968 Steve McQueen thriller "Bullitt". While the rest of the movie is only so-so, the car chase scene is AMAZING! Enjoy the entire car chase courtesy of YouTube. If you would like to own this on DVD it's currently going pretty cheap on Amazon.
