Cap

By Michael Kim

 Hello sports and comic book fans, this is Michael from the back issue department for this installment on the national pastime and the First Avenger.  With the Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason in full swing, the 2014 season is drawing to a close.  For one player, his season and career has ended: New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.  Jeter, along with MLB, has said their goodbyes and thanks.  The thought came to mind to thank Jeter the comic book way.  If the 11th Captain in NY Yankees history Derek Jeter were a comic book character, he would be Captain America, Steven Rogers.

Guardians of the Galaxy Movie

 By Tom Hairston

Marvel Studios has certainly accomplished many feats that had been called impossible (or at least highly unlikely) in the short time since they started building the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It has only been a few years but people seem to have already forgotten what a huge achievement bringing several characters from separate movies together for a team up was. The mere fact that Thor and Iron Man are now household names is incredible to me.
