I hid the Totally Random Hottie link somewhere.  Can you find it? Time for monkeyshines! Darick Robertson draws all good and shit Hot damn, Jock is awesome What?  A scene from the comic on the cover?  That simply is not done! Greg Land's worst quality?  His blandness Old school, baby! So much freakiness! He's definitely gotten better, but this is still cool-looking I've been waiting ...

“You see,” Lardner said at the long bar of the Artist and Writers Restaurant, “Duke thought if his dream came true he would be a different person. He’s not unhappy about the dream. He’s unhappy that he is still the same man. Happens to a lot of us. We get somewhere we wanted and find we’re still ourselves.” (Roger Kahn, from The Boys of Summer)

'Conceived' is spelled wrong on the cover!!!!! Man, those are some big-ass thighs! 'Do you like my big gun, Dick?!?!?' You gotta love that tag line! He has a '007' on his watch - that's a nice touch So much RAGE!!! The dragon just wanted to mate with the airplane! It has a guarantee!

“Bonding is like the romance in an Arnold Schwarzeneggar movie.”

If it happens along the way, fine.”

But it ain’t the reason you go there.” (Bruce Feirstein, from Real Men Don’t Bond)

What can be broken, should be broken. (Dimitri Pisarev, 1840-1868)

The world would be a lot cooler if they swore in the president like this ... costumes included, of course I used to really like Brandon Peterson's art ... now it kind of freaks me out I like that you can see his ribs God forbid he lose his cigarette! She should really be looking more closely at what she's doing Oh, Darwyn Cooke - you're so groovy! Becky kicks ass! Nice of them to deliver it to the West Coast, ain't it? Squeed looks like he's doing some kind of funky boogie This seems like it's an homage, but I'm not sure what it's referencing Yes, please! That worm-thing on the cover is brought to you by a Mr. Steve Ditko! It's all lo-tech and shit! Freaky-deaky!

“It’s like blue light when you touch me,” she’d say. “Electric blue light sparking between us.” She’d cry softly into my shoulder, tears of passion, because she couldn’t get close enough to me. (W. P. Kinsella, from The Iowa Baseball Confederacy)

If they pour water over her, it would be just like Flashdance! He could use some calming tea or something Doll eyes freak me out, man! Bane has been hitting the Slim-Fast! Oh, the agony! I don't even want to know what that guy is doing! Dude needs to clean his ears every once in a while! They used my head tattoo on this cover, man! Firestar's breasts are oddly alluring!
