What I bought – 31 August 2011

“Life is so embarrassing,” he said. “How I love it.” (Robert Boswell, from The Geography of Desire)

That doesn't seem like optimal killing-bad-guys clothing Does Kubrick know about this cover? He's double-fisting it! I think we need to give Campbell a break, because it's obvious he just can't help himself Jodhpurs! Vertiginous! No wonder everyone hated Lincoln - he shook with his left hand! Don't tell anyone that Wagner would be a better artist for this book! Fact: Nate Powell is awesome! It's BACK! The fact that Ditko is still alive and cranky makes me happy

What I bought – 3 August 2011

“Sometimes I ask myself,” Emmerich said. “What is the function of a murderer? Is he the person you go to in order to confess?” (Don DeLillo, from The Names)

That's what happens when you stand under a ship - you get an anchor dropped on you! Seriously, DC?  Some people don't read your shit in single issues, you know! Aquaman is too cool to have a three-pronged trident, man! Gross but effective! Ah!  Greg Horn art!!!! He ought to use some Pert, yo! Surprisingly, I don't dig this Jock cover Still don't know who those dudes on the bottom are This cover idea has been used before, but it's still clever Speaking of ideas that remain cool ... Still wacky! Uh-oh - it appears he's about to punch reality! I'm not digging these painted covers More posing! Pregnant wolf Rahne is awesome Wagner had some leftover black paint he needed to get rid of Who doesn't love 20th-century Russian history?  Commies, that's who!  Oh, wait a minute ...

What I bought – 6 July 2011

Revolution is the universal rule of evolution. Revolution is a universal principle of the world. Revolution is the essence of the struggle for survival or destruction in a time of transition. Revolution submits to heaven and responds to men’s needs. Revolution rejects what is corrupt and keeps the good. Revolution is the advance from barbarism to civilization. Revolution turns slaves into masters. (Zou Rong, from The Revolutionary Army)

Freaky-deaky! That bustier has to hurt a little, doesn't it? Dare you get the glow-in-the-dark variant?!?!? Do you think this A stands for 'alive'???? We can't save him ... he's too ugly!!!! Why isn't this better?  WHY?!?!?!? I'm still not buying that outfit So secret I didn't even know about it! It's Amethyst! Well, that's creepy Pitchforks?  Really? Boy, I don't like that cover Well, it's better than the Thunderbolts cover, so I guess that's something!

What I bought – May and June 2011

Hey, look at that! I’m back in Arizona and I picked up almost two months’ worth of comics! Yeah, I’m not going to review them properly here – that would take waaaaaaaay too long. This is more of a “What I bought and the random thoughts I have about the issues and, why not, what I did in Pennsylvania for seven-and-a-half weeks.” Can you handle that??????

It’s time the other Big Summer Event got the Burgas Treatment! (Doesn’t that sound like some horrible medieval process by which, I don’t know, doctors extracted a spleen from the king or something?)

She Has No Head! – Random Thoughts Mash-up #1

She Has No Head! meets Chad Nevett’s Random Thoughts…OMG. WHAT. WILL. HAPPEN?  Let’s find out!

Here’s the deal, I’m way behind on my novel revisions for my agent, work is crazy busy, I’ve been sick and I just can’t seem to catch up, also my planned column for this week got pushed back due to some things beyond my control.  So the benevolent Chad Nevett agreed to let me pilfer his column concept (and I should add fearless leader Brian Cronin suggested the idea to me months ago) and so here we are!  Did you really want to see how the sausage gets made people?  I thought not!

Random She Thought: It’s She Has Random Thoughts Time!  Get Excited!
