Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
If I were a flunkie at DC, I’d propose publishing FIFTY Bat-titles a month … and nothing else! Come on, DC – you can’t lose! In the meantime, we’ll have to peruse this month’s Previews for other, non-Batman-and-thus-far-inferior titles!

Your weekly smorgasbord of comics internet things. And a TV review, because I can.
WATCH THIS SPACE for reviews of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Motion Picture and The Expendables.
Links, art, criticism, and discussion– sans the porn, it’s another week on the internet!
CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK: What if newspaper comic strips were written by today’s premiere comic book writers?I find the newspaper comics page to be a sad, boring place, populated by unfunny drain-circlers, occasionally peppered with decent strips or good art. So what if your favorite comic writer got in on the action? What would they write? Can you imagine the bizarre possibilities? My suggestions under the cut.
A few quick odds and ends from the week that was in rapid-fire fashion.
And now I’m gonna write about it!!! You gotta problem with that?!?

Random Thought: Hey, I still get to blog here! It’s random thoughts fill in time; get excited! (But it’s a fill in, so don’t totally lose your mind, okay? Keep it within reason.) Continue Reading »
“This will be our… Independence Day!” Join with me, fellow Americans, as we celebrate the anniversary of that movie with Will Smith and Bill Pullman! I don’t know why this country makes such a big deal about it every year, but… … Declaration of what?
So, leave it to the holiday weekend when no one’s reading for a (compared to recent weeks) double-sized Brunch filled with links to actual content, rather than just other links. Onwards!
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.
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.
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?
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!
Regular reader Louis Bright-Raven was nice enough to send along an article about his local comic book store, Heroes & Dragons in Columbia, South Carolina: “The Southeast’s Coolest Comics Shop!” Read on below the cut!

Looking for TV reviews? We all know you’re not, but if you were, you wouldn’t find them in this post! I haven’t seen them yet, because I am writing to you from beyond the grave before the weekend has yet commenced. They will probably show up later in a Midnight Snack. What you will find in this post, however, is the usual conglomeration of links to insightful and/or snarky articles and cool bits of art from the world of comics. I won’t steer you wrong, internet!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What single comic book, when unearthed by archaeologists in the far future, will best represent the comics medium as a whole, and the society/civilization from whence it came? Show your work. (My answer at the bottom of the post!)
Comics Should Be Good accepts review copies. Anything sent to us will (for better or for worse) end up reviewed on the blog. See where to send the review copies.
