And just to demonstrate how serious I am.......I would rather eat BonChon for every meal for an entire month, rather than allow KFC or Chic-fil-a to pass my lips even once.


*is against Chick-fil-a for moral, ethic and personal reasons* Mostly cause they fired me. :P

makes plans to demolish every Popeye's in Aberzombie's area to replace with multiple KFCs and Chic-fil-as and a single BonChon

Let's see how this goes...

Not sure I agree about that but I will agree they don't exactly make it fresh. I mean we never killed chickens in our kitchen.

Then you're missing all the fun of discovering the truth of the phrase "Running around like a chicken with his head cut off."

The big thing you discover is that you should kill the chickens out in the yard/barn and not bring them into the kitchen until after.

Much more sanitary.

I am from Louisiana, but these days I hang my hat in Texas. Same general climate. Better state.

And I get my picante sauce from right here in the Lone Star State.

Sadly, I don't think there's a rope big enough to take care of the entire city.

Would that the people of New York City had but one neck, I would hang 'em high!

I think I can manage without knowing A-zombie.

To tell the truth, I don't know firsthand myself. However, it has been described to me, very vividly, by my mother.


The only things I've seen done on a farm were milking cows and shearing sheep.

I was going to start bagging and boarding my Robin comics, when I suddenly realized that, somehow, I was missing issues 1-10 and 15-23.

Nineteen entire issues!!!!!

INSANITY!

So, after a quick visit to the comic book store (and shelling out $51), I am now proud to say I have closed that gap to only 6 issues.

I love disposable income.


*wishes his disposable income had allowances for Pawns, Player Companions, Campaign Settings along with Core Hardcovers and Adventure Paths*

Also, Chuck Dixon is THE S$~*! Dude was clearly one of the best Batman and Family writers ever.


I'll stick with Grant Morrison for my Batman fixes.

I will send you some Slap Ya Mama. It's got a nice, peppery taste to it.

Now, now, different people have different tastes. Morrison, Bendis, etc. wouldn't be so amazingly popular if someone, somewhere, didn't like them.

Or is that different people taste different?

I get those two confused...

Actually, and I've said this elsewhere, I'm involved in a sort of love/hate relationship with Morrison. There's some stuff he's done that I think is absolutely awesome.

However, these days the hate outnumbers the love.

Firstly I'm pretty sure if the zombie apocalypse arrives, Orcus will be willing to finally let me use necromancy.

Secondly, I'm kind of on the inverse when it comes to love/hate for Morrison. I LOVED Multiversity and the other stuff. I only didn't like Superman since it was only slightly good and it was...Nu-52.

Wow, just finished reading Dark Night: A True Batman Story. It's an autobiographical story by Paul Dini, recounting his mugging back in the 90s.

I thought it was an amazing story, very honest. It must have been difficult to tell, considering some of the things he has to say about himself and his life. There were definitely some points I sympathized with him on.

At the same time, it was also very inspirational. He shows that he had the strength to overcome a terrible ordeal and not let it destroy his life. He engages is some serious self-examination, and ultimately emerges stronger for it.

And the art by Eduardo Risso is spectacular. At times playful, at other times stark and bleak.

I would encourage anyone who ever liked Batman (especially the animated series) or who ever felt a bit like an outsider to read this graphic novel.

as I have been mugged I'll have to check it out.

Scarab Sages

The detailed recounting of his own mugging was fairly brutal. Considering the aftermath required him to have some facial reconstruction, I can only imagine how painful it was, and how lucky he was to be alive.


mm.

I've probably mentioned it before, but I was a big fan of Marvel's What If...series back in the day. They had some really good alternate endings/takes on some classic stories.

So, I was channel surfing and caught Age of Ultron on one of the movie channels. That's when it hit me - I'd love to see Marvel do a short series of What If...comics based on the MCU. I think that would be really cool.


It would be nice to see an Age of Ultron I kind of actually liked. Kind of.


I loved the What if's. So many great ideas that were fun to see... but did NOT need to bog down regular continuity for years.

I honestly believe that there are WAY too many things in modern marvel that SHOULD have been relegated to a What if.


example, phantom?


'What if' Captain America was Hydra.

'What if' Cyclops killed Professor X

'What if' the super heroes were skrulls all along.

'What if' Bucky wasn't dead

'What if' the Registration act had passed.

'What if' everyone knew Daredevil was blind.

Actually that last one WAS a what if :D

But yeah, these plots have dominated the entire Marvel universe affecting every book and changing the direction of... everything... and yet the concept feels like a What If story.


*will grant Phantom there are times he'd like Bucky still being dead but other times is okay with it* As for Cyclops killing Prof X...doesn't bother me as much as Secret Invasion and Dark Reign did.


Seems like they spend so much time on 'CHANGING THE WORLD!!!!' that they don't have time to LIVE in that world. By the time one event ends, they're laying the 'Road to' the next Event.

Whether you like or dislike Cyclops killing Prof X, it decimated every book in the X-verse and four years later they're still dealing with the aftermath. That's a LOT of time to spend on one ramification...

This! It seems like none of the heroes ever get a break any more. I fondly remember an issue of X-men (might have been an Annual) that was a Thanksgiving special. The story centered around Scott Summers and Jean Grey walking together around the estate and talking, while everyone else engaged in various frivolities from flag football to leaf raking and leaf pile jumping.

Eh, at least it wasn't some nobody like the 'X-Cutioner' this time. What a meaningless 'death of Xavier' that was, to pump up some villain nobody had ever heard of, and I don't think anyone has seen since...

The inconsistent writing afterwards just mucked it all up. One minute it's all 'I was hopped up on Phoenix, I had no control' and the next it's 'He was totally asking for it, he's to blame' with a dash of 'I would have done it anyway, even if I wasn't possessed by a world-destroying cosmic entity.'

Whatever. Crap or get off the pot, Scott. You either wanted to kill him or you didn't. You don't get to answer, D) all of the above.

'What if' Bucky wasn't dead

Quite possibly the only 'shock' that I've really liked, after all the sturm and drang died down. And the Winter Soldier remains a relevant character, unlike some others (looking at you, Jean Grey. Why did you come back again?).

Quote:
'What if' the Registration act had passed.

I wish they'd had tighter plotting on that, so that it didn't end up so ludicrously one-sided (Iron Man being written as a fascist, pretty much, and Reed Richards offering three different reasons why he supported it, one of them being 'The Mad Thinker tricked me into thinking it was a good idea.'). The pro-registration side *could* have had some good arguments, but since the writers mostly seemed to be on the other side of things, it just got ridiculous (such as one scene where, attempting to 'apprehend' the teenaged Runaways, pro-reg military forces opened fire with heat-seeking high-explosive missiles in the middle of New York City, which missed and took out an apartment building full of people!).

Plus, if they were going to go that route, some *real* consequences, like a continuation of some of the Initiative teams, or further development of interesting characters like Cloud 9, Komodo, Hardball, etc. introduced during the event, and / or some lasting effects of the really terrible decisions made by some characters, with Reed, Tony, Carol, Jennifer and Greer, in particular, making some bone-headed choices, and basically skating on them. Pym got the out of being replaced by a Skrull, but Reed sent 'cape-killer' supervillains after his wife, brother-in-law and best friend *over a political disagreement* and the response from Quesada was 'eh, Sue will forgive him, he'll cook her dinner or something and it will be back to normal.'

Ugh.


I don't blame Carol, Jen, or Greer for their choices. I DO blame bad writing for Reed and Tony.

Quesada has to answer for that, no question.
