So many dinosaur covers this week! I don't know if I want to know what's going on here Venetian blinds - your pulp/noir staple! Why is she reaching for me?!?!?!? Has Gillen paid enough dues to make this a success? Best cover of the year?  Probably Is her left hand on top of underwear, and if so, WHY DEAR GOD WHY?!?!? No wonder comics writers and artists love dinosaurs - look how cool that is! Yes, I tried this! Given the way Moses usually acts, that smile sure is creepy! They went to the X-Men crossover a bit too late! So many dinosaurs!!!!!

“It’s like blue light when you touch me,” she’d say. “Electric blue light sparking between us.” She’d cry softly into my shoulder, tears of passion, because she couldn’t get close enough to me. (W. P. Kinsella, from The Iowa Baseball Confederacy)

“Poet.”

“Poet? But what do you really do?”

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.

“It’s the same thing,” he said. (A. A. Milne, from Winnie-the-Pooh)

Dear God, where are her nipples?!?!?!? Should that be crania? 'Wherefore' means 'why,' not 'where,' damn it! Darwyn Cooke-alicious!

Actually, his statement in its entirety was, “The rich are the most discriminated-against minority in the world. Openly or covertly, everybody hates the rich because, openly or covertly, everybody envies the rich. Me, I love the rich. Somebody has to love them. Sure, a lot o’ rich people are assholes, but believe me, a lot o’ poor people are assholes, too, and an asshole with money can at least pay for his own drinks.” (Tom Robbins, from Jitterbug Perfume)

Damn, I love the backgrounds on these Quitely covers! Batman puts some Bactine on this and moves on, because he's tougher than you are! It's a double-shot of awesome straight to your cerebral cortex! I don't know how those dolphins got on top of that building, but how sad!That guy in the foreground creeps me out! I love the ghost fingers right in the center of the drawing! You know, if more cops looked like this and flew around like this, I'd be a criminal just to check it out! How can anyone not love Tom Scioli? I'd risk the arrows if fine ladies like that were paying me so much attention! I wonder what this issue is about? She will tic-tac-toe your ass to death! Yay!  More nudity! That's kind of a lousy 'drawing' but a pretty effective image It just keeps getting weirder! Featuring ... SCIENCE!!!! I'm so geeked about this title! Is it the end?  We shall see ... Raise a glass to Christopher Mitten! This actually represents something that happens within the pages! Who doesn't love retellings of old fairy tales?

That woman was the closest thing to himself Achilles had ever come across. But he didn’t find out until a moment after he had killed her. She was hostile, and dead: everything Achilles loved in a woman. (Roberto Calasso, from The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony)

How does he pee? That's not a great cover, but it's a pretty neat drawing! He just read his own comic, and that's what happened to him! That table is only forty bucks at Cost Plus! You're in trouble when the palm trees start staring at you On the plus side, he's a hit at raves! McKeever writes his dates the cool way! That Darwyn Cooke - he has a future in this biz, I think They look like they're about to tango! Goin' crazy gives a man a powerful hunger! Man, I love this issue Ain't nothin' more American than shootin' guns at a football game! Now I have a hankering for some soul sushi I don't think J. Bone is capable of doing a bad cover Why, everyone loves the Tommy Taylor books! It's all ...... giant-sized!!!!! He won an award that begins with an 'X'!  That means it HAS to be good!
