Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

December 2nd – On this day in 2009, Marvel Comics publishesSiege: The Cabal (One-Shot). The Comixology preview reads: “THE SIEGE STARTS HERE!! Remember when you were first introduced to theCabal, the gathering of the most sinister members of the Marvel Universe, andyou said to yourself: Well, that’s going to blow up in everyone’s face! Well,you were right and it happens right here!! Norman Osborn faces off with DoctorDoom and his mysterious threat to Doom is revealed. All of this is setting thestage for next month’s explosive event: SIEGE!”
