It is this weird amalgamation of Jesus, Moses, the Spartans, the Postman, and probably a whole bunch of other stuff with football being the center of attention. I don't think I have read a book that was trying to be this controversial since Liberality for All #1.


This sounds fucking epic.

Supergirl 50

I will be giving it a bad score.

First off, I seen a post that I chuckled at but agree with: michael Turner is the new Tupac when it comes to Supergirl covers.

Hey DC, a little recap would be nice. This is literally right in the middle of something. I have no idea whats going on in the beginning, something with Superwoman. What is the point of Supergirl? What sets her different from Superman, especially when the villains plot was to "either get Superman...........or you" haha. I guess it's the random teenage girl dialogue, like clever ways to use the word bitch that sets her apart from Clark. That is odd too, as Supergirl seems to want to be a Kryptonian more than a human. The ending is cheesy as hell too. She has to break it off with her BFF Lana Lang? Also, it makes sense if you don't want her to be a whore, but the shorts under the skirt still make me laugh for some reason. Maybe I want her to be a whore? IDK. The only thing I can say about this is that Igle is a good artist. Helen Slater's story: It's awfully continuity heavy of this version of supergirl for me to believe Slater had much to do with it.

Story: 2
Art: 7

Overall: 4.5

I can't wait for Neil Young OGN... that is gonna be bananas. Bad or good, I bet it is still better then the movie. Maybe I will try to listen to the album, while watching the movie while reading the comic!

Meh, I got bored with Young after he made that record with Pearl Jam. I like Dysart and Chiang though so I'll probably end up reading it at some point.

I'm assuming there won't be any talking animals this time around. Hopefully the British teens shouldn't have any worries about anyone seeing them with their comics and running away in horror this week.


In Britain that's a legitimate psychiatric disorder, termed Narniphobia after being recognized anecdotally as "C.S. Lewis' Disorder" for many years.
Ireally hope this catches on.

Just in case it wasn't obvious, Jude's pick for next week is...

[center]Image
X-Men Forever #18
selected by Jude Terror[/center]WRITER: Chris Claremont
PENCILS: Tom Grummett

For our Salem-based X-Men, you’d think a trip to the South would be all buttermilk biscuits and bacon. But in issue 17, Nightcrawler and Rogue’s journey past the Mason-Dixie line puts them in the crosshairs of a familiar face known for her feminine…do we really need to say it? And in issue 18, X-Legend Chris Claremont takes us behind the visor in a special spotlight story that will change the way you look at Cyclops! Don’t miss this classic tale of the original X-Man. Rated A…$3.99

whut?

there is the album with Booker T and the MGs and then he started basically live blogging on album so you end up with weird concept albums like Life with War and The one about the cadillac... man is nuts! And Greendale would be right up your indie loving heart... makes not one damn bit of sense, it is like a musical directed by David Lynch.
