So, DC ran up against something that all but forces them to take the ridiculous gore-porn out of their comics, huh?? Yeah, we'll see how long they can stay off that crutch. Their stories' barrenness will be more apparent to more people than ever! :P

I hope Vertigo puts out a My Little Pony series that's based on the cartoon.

Where ? Marvel will be more than happy to appease the "sc-fi violence and gore" demographic multiple times monthly with "Avengers Arena" and the multitude of Wolverine titles. :P

But let's be honest, there are only so many times that a person can read about a canadian samurai killing his own children before it starts getting a little repetitive. :-D

You could find the Viltrumite War from Invincible if you haven't already read it. It's full of "sci-fi violence and gore" and it's easily one of the best superhero comic books out there. In fact, it will even tell you that when you look at the cover of the book!

I wouldn't support a Fat Bob book if my life depended on it thanks to The Bass opening my eyes.

Onthe real, I'm waiting for the next omnibus edition.
