But novelists write for countless reasons: for money, for fame, for reviewers, for parents, for friends, for loved ones; for vanity, for pride, for curiosity, for amusement: as skilled furniture makers enjoy making furniture, as drunkards like drinking, as judges like judging, as Sicilians like emptying a shotgun into an enemy’s back. I could fill a box with reasons, and they would all be true, though not true of all. Only one same reason is shared by all of us: we wish to create as real as, but other than the world that is. (John Fowles, from The French Lieutenant’s Woman)

Yes, Glenn Fabry drew this in 2005! I'm not sure what's going on with Williams' obsession with X-rays in this issue Kalvachev does some nice covers for this series, I'll tell you what Man, talk about zipping along! This could get messy He's just a dude who likes his vodka and milk, man! 'Nuff said! Well, holy crap He's auditioning for Flashdance! So sad it's over! Who doesn't love evil Boy Scouts?

How does it happen that sometimes someone says something and wins someone else over forever? … at times a single word can work miracles. (Manuel Puig, from Kiss of the Spider Woman)

Man, I hate when they use my body for comic book covers without my permission! Francavilla drew this cover in 2010 - how long has he known he'll be doing this issue? Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Just to reassure you - that's not a penis Oh, Amanda Conner - is there anything you can't do? Symbolism! It's like she's shooting YOU!!!! Yeah, this won't end well Big 'n' spooky! Why does he have a fishing pole?  Dear God, WHY?!?!?!? Hells yeah!

Our nation has grown by its need for the unnecessary — another name for human progress. (Daniel Boorstin, from Cleopatra’s Nose)

Ryan Sook makes everything better! Estrogina and the Zamoran pirates need to get an ongoing title NOW! Naked chicks and giant robots! Did they honestly think it could be an ongoing? Naked chicks and giant Vikings! I couldn't resist! CBR reviews get quoted on the front of Marvel books, but God forbid they quote me! Yet another cool cover! It's all true! That dude needs to chillax! I hope there's bloodshed and ugly-bumpin' in this book! Yay!  More dinosaurs! Dang, this looks awesome! It's all European and shit! So much funny!

“It is something so monstrous it is past sin and becomes necessity,” he said. (Greg Bear, from “Petra”)

Ramos' art veers between ugly and scary, I'll tell you that much! Marlo is the kind of girl who exists only in geeks' imaginations! Yeah, I'm as surprised as you are that I bought this! Oh, John, you crazy punk, you! That cover is so boring it almost puts me to sleep Gotta have a chick! Who's his tailor? The puns don't get any better inside! My vote is for this to be a new ongoing series It's only sort of part of the crossover, so I didn't have to skip it! Fine, fine comic strip excellence! It's Pope-tacular! Too insane for words! Don't resist the manga!
