any word on what next weeks read is going to be?
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."

I see a lot of McFarlane in some panels, but I thought Capullo was only on layouts?

I don't have enough familiarity with these differing styles to have an opinion--to me it looked like kind of messy MacFarlane, or like I would imagine a MarFarlane-impersonator might create. But I have only my memories of MacFarlane's first few books to go from.

The first couple of pages looked like Capullo to me, I guess in the end, it depends on how detailed his layouts were. Did he do just thumbnails with rough figure sketches or did he render a few panels. Either way, there is influence from all three artists and their styles present in the finished book.

a. it was unfunny
b. I don't get the reference.
c. it is entirely possible that b and a are related.

I am back to thinking choice d is the correct answer. The hoj I know would proceed to explain himself in humorous fashion.
