Sometimes the ads in the books are just as priceless as the awful stories. I really wish I could find some of these comics.
The Aliens vs Predator comics were infinitely better than that WWE slapfest Wes Anderson threw together for the silver screen. Still I’m not quite sure we need the Aliens and Predators fighting goth-attired emo kids. It wouldn’t be a fair fight. Those emo dorks would make our extraterrestrial friends so depressed they’d commit suicide. Nor could our interplanetary visitors stand up to a constant barrage of horrid bands like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy and Hawthorne Heights. Don’t kid yourself, vile fashion trends really are The Deadliest of the Species.
Defiant’s ad for a Warriors of Plasm Christmas special has to be the grossest yule image I’ve ever seen. I’d be thinking of using it for Christmas cards this year if I thought I could do it without getting sued. Or yelled at by the recipients. And the fun with WoP doesn’t end there.
Have I been tweaked lately? Sounds like an ad for a Cheech and Chong movie. And to answer the question: No, not since High School.
So all the really good superhero names are taken, huh? Also note that any hero named “The M@n” should be older than 18. Since this guy is a teenager, his handle should actually be “The B0y”. And I’m not even going to comment on “Mr. Right”.
Editor 1: “Let’s do a book on Pirates.”
Editor 2: “Naw, Pirates are lame.”
Editor 1: “What if it’s really bloody? We’ll call it Oceans of Blood or Waves of Gore.”
Editor 2: “Still lame.”
Editor 1: “How about…um…they are Vampire Pirates?
Editor 2: “That’s BRILLIANT!”
