Things That Made Me Happy...

in my comics book world this week.

  • The new "I Read Like a Girl" tee shirts for sale!
  • Mary Wollstonecraft smacking J-J Rousseau in the crotch with a wooden paddle.
  • The most recent Big Monkey Podcast with its Dramatic Reading from Adam Strange.
  • Scarecrow's deathtraps. Good for you, Scarecrow!
  • Diogenes versus Alexander the Great.
  • Damnation-vision is one of the best powers ever.
  • "Unarmed photographer wanted. Must have patience and a thirst for vengeance. Apply to J. Hex."
  • The Family Circus explains Foucault.
  • Green Arrow is a black belt metrosexual? He was a billionaire playboy; of COURSE he is. DC's really pulling out all the stops to make me warm up to GA, aren't they?
  • Aqualad and Francis Bacon.
  • Luthor and Brainiac, together again, and defeated by the great fruit flavors of Airheads candy.
  • Kirk and Spock playing football with hand grenades.
  • Plastic Man and Lao Tzu.
  • Jimmy Olsen's Giant Head.
  • Hey! Somebody remembers what Jim Corrigan is supposed to be like!
  • Scotty Beatty's unusually poetic origin of Lex Luthor.
  • Now I want a sidekick named "Neutrino"!
  • You have to admit turning Wonder Woman, the creature from clay, and the Martian Manhunter, the flammaphobe, into candles is some grim irony!

I almost know NONE of your references this week. Mary Wollstonecraft? Diogenes? Damnation-Vision? Family Circus? Aqualad and Francis Bacon? Plastic Man and Lao Tzu? Jim Corrigan? Candles?


And yet, you left out Atom's Head in a Cape.

Yeah, I'm usually pretty good with the references, but this week I only get 3 of them!

Scipio said...

Ah, that's because you're not buying ACTION PHILOSOPHERS and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED folks!

Scipio said...

Just a Hexian humor, Gyuss.

Considering how old Jean Jacques was pretty much responsible for bringing on the French Revolution, I say that hitting him in the nads with a paddle was the LEAST that Mary Wollenstonecraft could do. And good on her.

And I loved the Six Degrees of Francis Bacon. Oh, and Roy wanting his Lingerie magazine back from Black Canary. Heehee.
