What I bought – 23 December 2009

Ah, villains, hath that Mortimer escap’d?
With him is Edmund gone associate?
And will Sir John of Hainault lead the round?
Welcome, o’ God’s name, madam, and your son!
England shall welcome you and all your rout.
Gallop apace, bright Phoebus, through the sky;
And, dusky Night, in rusty iron car,
Between you both shorten the time, I pray,
That I may see that most desired day,
When we may meet these traitors in the field!
Ah, nothing grieves me, but my little boy
Is thus misled to countenance their ills!
Come, friends, to Bristow, there to make us strong:
And, winds, as equal be to bring them in,
As you injurious were to bear them forth!

Pugs is kind of a dick, isn't he? The Black Coat is quite the propagandist! All rats should wear monocles - it really classes them up! Well, now I'm going to have to track down some Korean noir, confound it! I wish Helena was always this cool. I'm really not sure how Sahara's breasts stay covered up ... Alan Davis: Best illustrator of smiles EVER! How will Amadeus resist Delphyne now???? I love the zombie fish on that cover This cover format really screws with some nice Cheung covers So instead, she makes new mistakes! Another cool cover by Johnson! Who's going to turn down tequila? I already own every issue, but this has new material, dang it! This is the first Sacco book I've ever bought - I hope it's good! Sterankoriffic! Pure.  Concentrated.  Awesome. Dixon and Zaffino wrote one of the few Punisher stories I like, so I'm keen to read this!

What I bought – 25 November 2009

I remember when I was in love, I broke my sword upon a stone, and bid him take that for coming a-night to Jane Smile; and I remember the kissing of her batler and the cow’s dugs that her pretty chopp’d hands had milk’d; and I remember the wooing of a peascod instead of her, from whom I took two cods, and giving her them again, said with weeping tears, “Wear these for my sake.” We that are true lovers run into strange capers; but as all is mortal in nature, so is all nature in love mortal in folly.

Kitties in love! Hey, I'd freak out if my partner did that too! Can you handle all the awesome? The Steward kicks ass and takes names! Oh, forbidden love - it gets you every time! Aren't all Mossad agents built like that? Who doesn't love sandwiches? Moore doesn't follow Chekov's 'Orgy Rule'! It's Cassaday!  Can you resist? 'He really likes beer.'  Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Warning: This hot chick does not appear in this comic! Yes, she's resting her drink on a headless guy's ass.  Why?  because Darwyn Cooke is awesome, that's why! Dang, that's a cool cover! For all his prominence on the cover, Thor doesn't actually appear in this comic. 'Remove Before Takeoff' cracked me up, I must admit. Yes, he really does drink blood in this issue!

I didn’t buy all of these – two were sent to me – but dang, that’s a grip of funnybooks, ain’t it?

“Now, let her out and give her your coat.”
“Why me?”
“Because you’re perfect.”
“You have a point there.”

Jonathan Hickman Calls Bendis A Girl

I’m cereal! In an interview with the Burgas approved Atomic Comics. He also talks about his upcoming Fantastic Four run, drawing, and his bitter feud with the “other” Jonathan Hickman. But I’m just going to focus on this throw away line at the end of the interview:

AC – One last question… Have you & Bendis had any massive arguments over story content? If it came to blows, who would win the brawl?

JH – No arguments, so no fights. As for who would win if we did throw down – I have no idea. I don’t fight girls.
