The Weekly Pull: Kick A$$!

blog_xray2It's a bit of a slim week for me personally but still one I'm excited about. I know I mentioned the upcoming film adaptation of Mark Millar's incredibly fun "Kick Ass" series not too long ago, and now you can take a peek at the source material.

 

Barring any unforeseen delays, the opening 8 issue arc of Kick Ass! is finally being collected in hardcover format (Because it's finally finished). The story of a kid in the "real world" who decides to live out his comic book fueled dreams of being a superhero and the subsequent hard dose of reality that is painfully inevitable.

DC Universe Origins is something else that I think is worth taking a look at. It's pretty much just a collection of super-hero profiles that provided back up material in the single issues of DC's huge weekly series "52" from a few years ago. Each character gets their own couple of pages detailing their origins all written and illustrated by some serious talent. Sounds like a perfect fit for someone's coffee table, right?

Here are the rest of the week's releases.

Heads up: According to my most trusted nerd sources, the new Punisher Max series is supposed to be awesome. It's only on issue 3, so the timing to hop on board is pretty good.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
