Random Hijack! Yes, I am stealing Chad Nevett’s bit for a week whilst he takes a hiatus from this column. Yes, this is all Travis Pelkie’s fault. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited! (Or don’t. It’s really up to you. This is a free country.)
In which the author gives himself an existential crisis about the state of pop culture, and also links to a picture of a bear eating a space ninja
Below the fold: presents left under the tree, stocking stuffer stuff, aired grievances, and other secular, nondenominational metaphors for stuff I found on the comics internet.
The biggest Brunch ever? Quite possibly. All the news that’s fit to pimp!
Another Sunday, another tour around the comics internet!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: You are buying Casanova, right?
This week, I share some links to the comics internet (as always), go off on a tangent about cultural discovery (as sometimes), and talk about Doctor Who (because no one demanded it!). It’s Sunday. Here’s your brunch.
We’re light on links this week, but there are some intriguing things to think about in today’s post, as well as a bit of a rant, a bit of a ramble, and a bit of a review. Onwards!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What comic series or topic is the internet ignoring? What needs to be reviewed? What needs to be discussed?
I bought a sexy new computer yesterday. I’m writing this on its decade-older cousin, however, because it’s hard to blog when your only available monitor (er, besides this one) is the TV. Doin’ it old school!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: I forgot all the good questions I was going to ask. So what’s a question you’d like to answer? I’m open to suggestions.
Not too much going on around the comics blogosphere this week, so let’s take a tour through some lovely webcomics!
Sunday! You know what that means.
QUESTION CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK: Invent an ethnically diverse legacy hero for the superhero universe of your choice, and then invent a grisly way to kill them off.
Beneath the fold: links and commentary, as I analyze the geek brain, disagree with things people have said, and put down your favorite sports teams! Oh, and there’s stuff about comics, too.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Will the upcoming XXX Batman porn parody be the first porno in which the sex is the worst part of the movie?
This week’s episode of Sunday Brunch is like buying a gallon of skim milk instead of a quart of whole. So you get all the fatty comments from me cut off, but a whole lot of comics nutrients. Something like that, anyway.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: If Batman was a flower, what flower would Batman be?
One day, I’ll just put up a Brunch composed entirely of links to Comics Should Be Good articles from the previous week. But until we hit that nadir of lackadaisy (which I have now decided is a word, regardless of what the dictionary says), I guess I’ll have to settle for sharing various bits and bobs (and carols and teds and alices) of the comic book internet with you, faithful reader.
And I’ve had absolutely no time to pull stuff together this week, so… lightning round!
QUESTION(S) OF THE WEEK: How was your Free Comic Book Day? Good? Bad? Neutral? Chaotic Neutral? Lawful evil? Via my two online retailers (DCBS and Heavy Ink, holla, etc.), I managed nine free comics! And a lot of not free ones. So I’ll tell you all about those. In June, probably.
Slow week. Let’s see what bits of awesome we can scrounge up!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: On the whole, are your favorite comic book writers “fat guys with beards” or “skinny bald guys”? Is there some kind of hybrid form? U-Decide!
