She Has No Head! – The 12 Comic Wishes Of Kelly’s Birthday Post…

Yep, today’s my birthday.

Kelly Thompson r1

I must have these boots IRL

You can figure out how old I am by figuring out how many columns I’ve done for She Has No Head! and then subtracting ten.  I WISH!  Yeah, no, it’s just the number of columns…no subtraction.  Man I’m old. ANYWAY…

Inspired in part by Chad Nevett’s always fun Random Thoughts and my sincere desire not to do a big serious post on my birthday…I bring you a list of 12 comics related ways in which I would like to bend the universe to my will in honor of ME.  Also, some cool shit I want people to buy for me.

What I bought – 28 April 2010

“It took me some time to figure out that love is in the details. It’s in the books and records and the stereo and the convertible. Love is always in the details. And that’s where the pain is too.” (John Crowley, from Aegypt)

Soraya isn't really the star of the book, but you never pass up a chance to put a hot chick on the cover! He uses that gun to swat insects.  True! This is only the start of the egg puns! Sue is actually on this cover ... you just can't see her! I already have this cover tattooed on my ass! Long may the mullet wave! Well, hello there!  Where've you been? That cover is sure to please the ladies! Oh, Mouse Guard, why do you ever go away? 'It's your turn to pick up the tab!' 'The hell you say!' I'm not quite sure why Thomas Edison is on this cover, but whatever Every once in a while I have to bring up how very much I hate that trade dress When in doubt, put a stripper on the cover! Get funky, Nick! The entire cover is a synopsis of the interior, because Brian Hurtt is awesome! Why the hell does Blair Butler keep getting quoted on books? I love Johnson's cover designs! Boy, I really hope this book is back on track! It's for the kids! Also for the kids! Kids fighting Nazis?  Definitely for the kids! Okay, I can't work in the kid theme ... just buy the original Super Spy AND this, together! Well, I checked this out briefly, and it definitely looks like it's for the kids!

She Has No Head! – Greg Rucka And The Fate Of Batwoman…

As the entire comics reading world knows by now, Greg Rucka has decided to leave DC.Batwoman 5

Before I start point by pointing this for myself, let me first offer congratulations to Mr. Rucka for doing what he wants, what he feels is right, and what he believes will reward him most (in a myriad of ways).  I couldn’t wish success on any writer more (not that he needs it) and I’m thankful for his sake, and ours, that he has the freedom to go and do exactly what he wants to do whether that be prose novels, screenplays, comics, and everything in-between.

What I bought – 6 January 2010

You don’t know exactly when you fall in love with someone, do you? There isn’t that sudden moment when the music stops and you look into one another’s eyes for the first time, or whatever. Well, maybe it’s like that for some people, but not me. I had a friend who told me she fell for a boy when she woke up in the morning and realized he didn’t snore. It doesn’t sound much, does it? Except it sounds true. (Julian Barnes, from Talking It Over)

Guns, boobs, and Nazis!  What's not to love? So much potential! Better singer: Bob or Superman? Tits, yes, but God, no dick, please!!!! Man, comics in the Fifties had a lot of words! Incest: Keep it in the family! Yes, Portland parking tickets actually look like that, I can unfortunately testify. Can you really destroy the House of Secrets? I must say, that's a cool cover. Where's it been?  I've missed it so!
