She didn’t realize that it was in the blood and not on the skin; she didn’t see that there could be nothing more suburban than suburbanites repudiating themselves. (Hanif Kureishi, from The Buddha of Suburbia)

I don't know what those things on the sides of her legs are, but I wish they'd tell us! The name of this issue is NOT 'Time's Up'! I don't know what those letters next to the creators' names are The cover is the best thing about this issue! Why so many versions of Ozma? Such an unimportant part of the issue is depicted on this cover! I wish I could blow smoke like that! Don't taunt us with a Bradstreet cover! Spooooooky! I need me to get a tattoo on the back of my hand so I can freak people out! I love this cover! So, yeah, Dustin Nguyen is pretty good Hyperion looks really odd on that cover Let's give it another try! Who doesn't love the bleak stuff?

For if the sun is at the center and not the earth, then there are no crystal spheres to hold us in; we have only and always fooled ourselves, we men, kept ourselves within the spheres which our own flawed and insufficient senses perceived, but which were never there at all. The way to ascend through the spheres that hem us in was to know that we had already so ascended, and were on our way, in motion unstoppably. (John Crowley, from Aegypt)

I hid the Totally Random Hottie link somewhere.  Can you find it? Time for monkeyshines! Darick Robertson draws all good and shit Hot damn, Jock is awesome What?  A scene from the comic on the cover?  That simply is not done! Greg Land's worst quality?  His blandness Old school, baby! So much freakiness! He's definitely gotten better, but this is still cool-looking I've been waiting ...

“You see,” Lardner said at the long bar of the Artist and Writers Restaurant, “Duke thought if his dream came true he would be a different person. He’s not unhappy about the dream. He’s unhappy that he is still the same man. Happens to a lot of us. We get somewhere we wanted and find we’re still ourselves.” (Roger Kahn, from The Boys of Summer)

'Conceived' is spelled wrong on the cover!!!!! Man, those are some big-ass thighs! 'Do you like my big gun, Dick?!?!?' You gotta love that tag line! He has a '007' on his watch - that's a nice touch So much RAGE!!! The dragon just wanted to mate with the airplane! It has a guarantee! I'm digging this cover Who doesn't love Mouse Guard?Commies, that's who! None of this actually happens in this comic! Your own ... Nuclear ... Jesus ... Let's get physical, physical! Spoooooky! Man-Thing does not appear in this comic! Look how cute they are, eavesdropping on their past selves! Yay!  They're all ready to kick ass! Oh, Thor - you can't stay mad at X-Factor! Well, that's charming! Boy, I like that logo Ellis/Conner?  SOLD! It's Ditkoriffic! Everyone loves Yetis!

If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of those you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. (Ernest Hemingway, from A Farewell to Arms)

The chick on the cover looks NOTHING like the chick inside - it's two different artists, but come on! Gotta love the yellow oval! Do the Republicans know that Batman is selling us out to the United Nations? Why is the Russian girl a Rastafarian? He looks more like a dandy than a punk, doesn't he? Arrrrgggghhhhh!!!!  A photo cover! Well, he doesn't look pleasant It's all dark and spooky!!!! What's she looking at? Is he moving?  He's blurry! That hand needs to clutch that gun more securely, I reckon WTF?  A Greg Land cover I don't hate?  Has the world gone mad?!?!?!? Their dentists' bills must be astronomical! Why so very dark? Zombie Vikings!!!!  Or are they Viking Zombies? More historical fiction! Yay!  More Talbot goodness! Secret societies RULE! Alternate dimensions RULE!
