  1. 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.
  2. Declare a love for something

    I less than three the Invisibles Omnibus Edition that my girlfriend got me for Christmuhannakwanzyule!
  3. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    Nice hair, Pooka! And avaunt...I am 35 years old, and I have exactly 5 chest hairs. At least 4 of them are in the center of my chest!
  4. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    I am late to the Movember party, but here's my day 28 stache. BOO! (I suck at growing any sort of facial hair. :/)
  5. 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)
  6. What's going on with you?

    Ah! Congrats, Meaner!
  7. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    It's why I'm the perfect assassin.
  8. 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.
  9. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    American Driver's License photos are notoriously bad. Mine, however, is not.
  10. What's going on with you?

    Christian...that sounds AWESOME! Oh, and MEANER!!!!
  11. Declare a love for something

    I don't like otters as much as I used to.
  12. 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...)
  13. 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.
  14. Video Games

    Video games, eh? If anyone plays Dungeons & Dragons online, look me up on the Thelanis server. I am Varstagh Tenravens, a 9th level barbarian of the Tenravens Tribe, and I'm also Nephysis Tenravens, 6th level Drow Wizard (Necromancer/Pale Master), also of the Tenravens Tribe.
  15. Declare a love for something

    I just finished reading The Invisibles last week, and though I'm not sure I understood it (though I understand it better today than I did a week ago), I loved it. I know I read the whole thing years ago, but I seriously didn't remember anything about The Invisible Kingdom/
  16. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    Hey Red...what did that guy with the camera do to you? You look like you're about to murder him. With violence.
  17. 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.
  18. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    Mickey, How telling is it that I looked at your pic, then got frustrated that I couldn't find the "Like" button? Awesome pic, though.
  19. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    And because I missed the Halloween thread, here was my costume:

    Here's a pic of me and my lady-friend, Adele:
  21. Supposedly, they are filled all the way, but they settle to the bottom in transport.
  22. Right. I'm all for advancement, but not for people being treated as lifeless tools in order to get that technology.
  23. When I read stuff like that, I want to swear off technology and go live in the woods.
