Easy guess, like everything else in life, Punchy doesn't like them, therefore they are hipster.

Maybe he knows something we don't about why the Greek is smiling like that.

Nope, the only people I know who eat it are hipster vegetarians.

That's weird. It's like Israeli junk food (or wherever, lots of countries in that region).

All the hipster vegetarians I know eat out of dumpsters or something. Free-gans, I think it is. That's why I never throw out any falafels.

All I'm saying is this:

Mystery Men > Falafel

Now I have to go to the post office and I'm going to the butcher shop next door and getting a Slush Puppie®. Not a Slurpee™ because they are too mundane and common.

Now they're dead common in the UK, they are synonymous with that kind of drink in the UK. No hipster!

Told you I'm not a hipster! 8)

Slush Puppie has ice pellets not that whipped frozen but probably watery consistency. Most people here call everything like that a Slurpee™ and they usually have nasty flavors that sound like candles or air-fresheners. Blue raspberry is as weird as a Slush Puppie gets.

Good news though about Slush Puppies U.K. penetration! All the 7-11s and most gas station chains sell Slurpee™ here.

Slush Puppie is basically the only kind of that drink here, and they aren't anywhere near as popular as in the US.

Why would you want to drink any kind of -pee™ anyway?

Unless you're Aquaman I guess.

The art of course is masterful but obviously that was expected since Tony Bedard couldn't write a convoluted/trite/ script if he even tried. I look back at some of the books we've "liked" over the years and this book easily surpasses stories like 4 eyes, nextwave and of course Blackest Night. This is just a masterful comic in a truly unique story that will be remembered how it changed the industry and the way we read and enjoy comics.

10

my real score is 4. Pretty much read that review and do the opposite

Please share your drugs.
