MAKIN' LISTS MONDAYS - WrestleMania 30 Reactions

Last night’s WrestleMania XXX was an insane evening filled with twists and turns, some of which were well received and others that angered fans both old and new.  I ended up 4-of-8 on my predictions, though I have to say in almost all of the cases that I was happy to be wrong (with a few exceptions).  To follow-up my predictions posted last week, today’s list isn’t a countdown, but rather ten thoughts that I had after watching this year’s WrestleMania.

Schrodt's Wrestlemania 30 Predictions!

As many of you know, in addition to being a huge comic book nerd, I’ve been a fan of professional wrestling my entire life.  Last year, I geeked it up by posting my predictions for the biggest pay-per-view of the year for WWE, Wrestlemania XXX, and it was well enough received that I thought I would do the same this year.  The upside to this year is that thanks to the WWE Network, I will be watching the show live and will be Tweeting my thoughts throughout the night.  So, if you don’t mind me nerding about something other than comics (and hockey and Saturday Night Live and food), check that out.  In the meantime, hit the jump for my thoughts on the biggest night for pro wrestling this year (seriously, there are 66 wrestlers on the card—how cool is that? The first Wrestlemania only had 18.).

MAKIN' LISTS MONDAY - Top 10 Marvel Films

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in just a few weeks and so I thought it would be a fun time to rock a new Top 10 list.  There are currently 9-ish entries into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with 1 film so close that I suppose it counts.  I could have waited until after Captain America is released to make a true Top 10, but I thought it would be more fun to build up some hype for the film to do it earlier.  Hit the jump to see my countdown.

You can be drawn into Left2Right!

We are just a few weeks away from the finale of Dear Dinosaur and the debut of my brand new webcomic, LEFT2RIGHT!  Left2Right (yes, one word) is an action/comedy about two young dudes trying to take back their city from the clutches of a violent and incredibly flashy street gang.  It’s going to be super awesome and I’m really excited to be working with colorist BJ Humphrey and letterer Adam Wollet on this series!

But wait—there’s more!  My good friend Devin Michaels is in the tail end of a Kickstarter campaign for Capitalism and Other Stories.  In order to help her out, you can be drawn into Left2Right with a speaking role!  In addition to this, you’ll get the original 11 x 17” art page, a Left2Right poster signed by me and BJ, and a copy of Capitalism and Other Stories.  Go check it out right now and bid today!

DEAR DINOSAUR - "Not Dear Dinosaur"

Dear Dinosaur isn’t really Dear Dinosaur this week—instead, it temporarily becomes Oh it’s obvious, Otis!  Say whaaaat?!  Head over to right now to check out this insanity.  Revel in the absurdity, consider its consequences, and then come back here for the official commentary.  Do it now!  Have you done it? Now hit the jump for the actual commentary!
