    I like Comic Books, Role Playing Games, Anime, and various other dorky things. I am a freelance writer, and I work at my local college's writing center as a tutor.
    This is how I pay for all my bling.
    Comics I read:
    Hellblazer
    Checkmate
    Flash
    Besides by working and partaking in my dorky hobbies, I am a semi-practicing magician (the sorcery kind).
    I have a beautiful girlfriend, but not the one I had when I used to come here.
    What else?
    I get sad when the piano starts playing the closing theme for Saturday Night Live.
    I am afraid of everything.
    I am the most neurotic person you will ever meet. (Did I spell neurotic right?)
    There. That's all you need to know about me.
  1. I started on the last issue of Fear and Loathing. I was an off-and-on reader though Jenkins' run, and then read all the way up through the beginning of Milligan before I just couldn't afford comics anymore. (Now i'm back, and reading Lantern titles)
  2. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    I want to chime in to agree with Christian that Morrison does bring the fun with the characters, and he's probably that "One person, living or dead, you'd like to have dinner with" for me. I kind of want to hire him to be my life coach.
  3. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    Oh, don't get me wrong...Alan Moore's stuff these days is like if it's not League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I'm not interested. I looked at the Neonomicon a few weeks ago, and it was disgusting. I couldn't find any reason for the extended group rape scene, and I think it's a misunderstanding of what makes the Lovecraft Mythos scary. And I can't think of anything in the last ten years that Morrison has done that has had any sort of rape (Though that might be because he switched places with Kind Mob and KM is writing comics now...)
  4. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    Morrison book spoilers follow... Here's the link to the interview I'm referencing. Rolling Stone interviewed Grant Morrison, and in the interview, Grant makes some valid points about Alan Moore. In fact, the title of this post isn't quite fair because I don't really take issue with what he said about Moore; what I take issue with is this: "We know Alan Moore isn't a misogynist but fuck, he's obsessed with rape. I managed to do thirty years in comics without any rape!" So that wasn't an implied rape scene in Hellblazer when the father and his friends invade the daughter's room? And I supposed Lord Fanny's rape, shown twice in the Invisibles, doesn't count? You could make the case that Ragged Robbin's rape doesn't count because it was a false memory. However, you can't write off the Crazy Jane was raped by her father off panel, and then by a stranger in a church on-panel. Maybe I'm being nit-picky because I've read a lot of Morrison in the past year,so it's all fresh, but still...that's a lot of rape for someone who doesn't put rape in comics.
  5. Marvel comics

    I was going to ask if anyone was reading The Defenders (right now, it's the only book I'm getting). I see that Christain likes it to. Good stuff...though I'm not sure I like the promiscuous Dr. Strange. Iron Fist is great, though.
  6. Gratuitous Watchmen cash-in

    Yeah...I really doubt I'll be buying this, and I haven't even looked at any of the New 52. DC just doesn't interest me anymore.
  7. BEST PANEL EVER

    Open the window, and a breeze blows in, and I....
  8. Other comics we read recently

    I love Phonogram. This issue wasn't my favorite, but it was good.
  9. Hellblazer #256

    YES. My favorite issue in quite a long time.
  10. Hellblazer #255

    Meh. Unless this stuff comes up again later, I'm not sure what the point was.
  11. The tragic loss of Stevhan Gobble

    Damn. Sorry to hear that, Tim. We're all thinking of you. -jaynova/Jason Novak
  12. Other comics we read recently

    Although if you're interested in the back up stuff, it won't be in the trade.
  13. Big books of comics

    I've got that issue!
  14. Other comics we read recently

    OK...I'm going to get a lot of shit for this, but I loved Phonogram 2, issue 2. This story arc, "The Singles Club," has 6 stand alone issues that take place in the same place at the same time, and when taken together have that whole "Different experiences of the same events = different stories" thing. Anyway, I reccomend this series, even if you hates "Rue Brittania". Commence beating in 3...2...1...

    Quoted from a facebook conversation with a friend of mine, after my friend implied that Ellis whines on Bad Signal because he can't get any from some girl on a website:
