Hello and greetings fellow Otaku,
Now I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of DC Comics New 52. With tons of great titles including Batwoman, Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Teen Titans, and Hawk and Dove just to name a few, now would be a good time to get back into the world of comics. But for those of you who are familiar with these, your probably asking yourselves how can I share my opinion with DC to make the New 52 even better? Well here is your chance to do so.
Right now you can share your opinions with DC by taking an online survey or by visiting your local comic book shop by Friday July 6th. The survey will consist of questions about the New 52 and it’s readership. All you have to do is answer the questions honestly and to the best of your opinion. But even if you cant complete the survey online, the nice folks over at Nielsen NRG (The people who are conducting this survey) will be visiting local comic book shops all across the country during the next two weeks during the survey period to get your opinions on the New 52 via in person interviews. To find out if Nielsen NRG will be visiting your local comic book shop in the next two weeks, just give them a call or contact them via e-mail to see if they will be making a visit near you.
And now for a quick break for some eye candy!!!!!
Starfire looks so hot doesn’t she. I wonder how much she spends on beauty treatments every year in Tamaran???
Well that’s all for this edition of AFC Comics explosion. So make sure to take this survey and voice your opinion, otherwise I will send Starfire out to get you. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime, manga and comics out there. All you have to do is find them. Ltrs.
Survey (2nd Wave)DC Comics New 52 Research !!!!

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,
Now most of you in the blogosphere already know about this story and that almost the media outlets have talked about this in one way or another, but for those of you who haven’t heard about this yet, something very interesting is about to occur in the Marvel Universe that will be the talk of the comics world for the next few weeks. So hang on to your seats because you are going to be amazed about what is going to happen.
Edit: Click on the following picture above to see a clip from today’s episode of The View talking about Astonishing X-Men!!!!
As it was mentioned on the popular ABC talk show The View earlier today, the next two issues of Astonishing X-men (#50 and #51) will be featuring the controversial subject of same-sex marriage in which Northstar will propose to his longtime boyfriend Kyle to be engaged.
For me, I find that this has to be one of the most interesting events that has taken place in comic books in recent years. In the past, comic books have dealt with hot button issues such as drug addiction and other controversial topics covered in the main stream media. But with the recent news of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden supporting gay marriage, is this the right time to showcase this to the American public or will it cause more debate as to whether or not same-sex marriage should be accepted in our culture?
You’ll just have to stay with AFC to find out. I will have more on this story in the days to come as well as all the latest news and reviews related to the world of otaku culture. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
I apologize for the lack of updates, I will be updating the site with new information in the days and weeks to come. Thank you for your patience and virtue during this brief hiatus!!!!!
