Paid assassins. They’re the things of movies and crime novels.
So it’s shocking to realize that hit men are also real-life professions for cold-blooded killers. Men like Sammy “The Bull” Gravano and Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski are just two of the names of hitmen that most of us know…
Here are the names of 10 of the Deadliest Hit Men You’ve Probably Never Heard Of.
Whether you love Sinatra, hate him or fall somewhere between, you’ve got to admit he lived an interesting life. Sinatra was a recording star, a movie star, the leader of the Rat Pack, a Vegas headliner, who hung with stars, politicians, and mafiosos.
Did you know that Frank Sinatra was once arrested for “seduction and adultry,” hated Marlon Brando, that his friendship with the Kennedy’s got him in hot water with the mafia, his son was kidnapped and had to loan the kidnappers gas money, or that Frank Sinatra’s friendship with Joe DiMaggio soured when Sinatra introduced (DiMaggio’s wife) Marilyn Monroe to the Kennedy’s… and DiMaggio blamed them for Monroe’s death?
Check out 10 Strange Stories About Frank Sinatra and you’ll learn all the details… and more!
It’s been a while since we did a quiz… so, let’s see how well we would survive the zombie apocalypse.
Let me rephrase that, Will You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
See, I’ve already taken the quiz and I’m going to easily survive. I’m hoping the best for you.

Yesterday’s Steranko paperback covers were such a hit that I thought we’d follow up today with most of Steranko’s Shadow covers!
Back in the early 80′s when I was collecting original art, Steranko sold off the detailed pencil drawings he used in creating these covers. Steranko called them pencil paintings and they were beautiful. I was still in college and $225 was a ton of money, but I purchased one (the cover to #8).
When I was heading into my senior internship, I decided to sell off my art collection. I was going to be teaching full time (but with no pay – internship, remember) and the money from the art sale would make things more manageable.
The Steranko piece is one that I have missed most over the years.

Have you seen this poster and trailer for Fury?
Then why didn’t you give me a heads-up? Sheesh!
Kevin Mellon created this cool piece. Sly as Jack Carter. Kevin said he gave Carter the shotgun as a nod to the original “Get Carter” starring Michael Caine.
Well played, Kevin. Well played.
