Plus, I can't even begin to choose from all the public domain photos. Did you know she was in, of all things, The Spirit?

Really? I can see it fine. I'd ask my Hack Squad but I've got 'em adding up receipts at the moment.

Well, since she's already favored us with some bad poetry, how about this from her Twitter acct:

I just love being a woman. I love my boobs, I love my legs, I love it all. The only thing that gets me down are angry man-hating feminists.


:-D

The Spirit was a glorious mess

I enjoyed it despite it faults
its better though with ice cream malts

:lol: I just thought it was a funny quote, especially amidst a lot of fancy Shakespearean quotery.

Kill Shakespeare #1

I'm by no means a Shakespeare wonk. Like most people I read a play or two in school and have seen a few movies so my only interest in this book was if it was a good story and if it was well executed. After reading this I have to say that in spite of what is actually a really cool conceptual pitch, it's a major nay on both counts.

Dry and boring sums up the first half of the book. There's no flow at all, the faux-Shakespearean dialog doesn't work. The story picks up a bit in the second half but all this issue really does is present you with the concept which is delivered far more swiftly in the blurb on the back cover. Had the creators cut the first 10-12 pages of this and used them to advance the story past the point this issue ended, it possibly could have provided something to interest me going forward.

The art is nice in places and oddly inked and muddy in others. This style works well for a fantasy series, but it's not anything overly exciting.

Story: 3
Art: 5
Overall: 4

I'm assuming since this is an IDW book and a lot of people's shops suck, there will be more than a few "my shop didn't have this" posts this week.

The first person who can't find Kill Shakespeare that wants it, I will send you my copy. Just post here or PM me.

We should form an Outhouse Movie Club and just watch The Spirit once a month. The trick is that each month we'd be on different drugs until we found exactly what kind of crack Miller was on when he made it.

I don't think it's crack, it's just good old fashioned old man demensia.

I hope it's one of the Brits! :lol:

Additionally, any review group members in the continental United States, Lee's got 2 copies to send out free-of-charge for the next couple RGers who couldn't find the book. You should get them pretty quick, in time for a hasty review. That way people get to participate, and they can protect their streaks.

There you go, at least 3, possibly 4, free review books this week for people who can't find the book.
