Due to circumstances completely within my control, posting will be very sporadic over the next few weeks.

In a nutshell, I goofed up right and proper and have to spend some time making good again.

No, nothing too bad or long term.. just ... well, it'll take a while to fix.

Feel free to "dumbass" me in the comments. Trust me, I deserve it.

My Haul

Well, part of it anyway. The blog-relative stuff. I got other, more personal things, too.

I must've been very very good.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Merry X-Mas

We'll be taking a break through the next week...

Best wishes to all of you and yours.

Now, enjoy some cartoons...

And, just because I was playing mandolin in a band that covered this last week (and quite well, I might add)... My favorite Christmas song:

Merry Christmas, fellows.


Y'know what would have been Awesome?!?

Yeah, it's a shoddy job. But it's still awesome.

Weekend Wrap-up

Things that made me happy this week:

Jack gives Hydra a Wet Willie.

J.H. Williams, with an easy throw-away detail of him eating, draws one of the best Jonah Hex character moments I've seen in a while. I mean.. Euggh!

Mr. Popular drew this. Total awesomeness a Go-Go!

I bought a Giant-Size Jimmy Olsen in which this actually happens for only a buck. And it's not the craziest thing that happens in it. Not by a long shot.

Season 2, Bout 4 tomorrow night! The Roller Girl's very own Devil's Darlings vs. those doomed-before-it-starts B-Town Battalion!

Oh .. and we're expecting several inches of snow tonight. Contrary to popular belief, it really doesn't snow much here in Boise. Surrounding area? Yeah. In the city proper? Not so much. So.. looking forward to that.

(It's actually quite funny early in the morning when I let the dogs out to do their business after a nightly snowfall.. they run full tilt outside, then stop suddenly in the middle of the yard, look around confused then back at me with an expression like, "Did YOU do this?!?")

Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

By the way... The devil girl in the Darling's logo? Yeah, that's Bettie.

So Long

Previews Want

Noticed in the latest Previews, via Sims:


Written by: Lisa Titan and Nader Absood
Illustrated by: Dennis Culver
Colors by: Pamela Rambo
32 pages, standard, full color interiors

Goodie Two-Skates is missing! And who are these new skaters–the freakishly perfect freshies that have suddenly shown up? The Wheels of Justice have to find Goodie and get to the bottom of this mystery before Nationals, or the Icy Blonde will succeed in corrupting the team forever!

So, yeah... I'll be getting a few copies of that. So should you.

Pack Smash!

So, I picked up a copy of the digest version of Marvel Adventures: Hulk / Powerpack on the cheap (read: free) the other day at my LCS's anniversary sale. And, while it's no Marvel Adventures: Anything Written by Jeff Parker, it's a pretty fun li'l read. It'll make a great stocking stuffer for when the Roller Girl's li'l monster comes to visit. Why, parts of it are gosh-darn adorable....

For 'zample:

Jack outsmarts Dr. Banner!



Ahem... KATIE-HULK!!!

A story title joke SOMEONE should've done before.
(man, that's funny. Or, it's just me.)

But, to my mind, all of this goodness pales in comparison to the book's climatic battle between the Hulk and the Avengers! The big buildup leading to the colossal smackdown! The absolute battle royale that, even though we've seen it a hundred times before, always kicks us square in the gamma-fueled gonads of justice!

(Hey! I just channeled the Tick! Spoon!)


That's freggin' awesome, right there! Part of me wishes it could go on for several panels.

Oh, what the heck...

*Sigh* That's good stuff!

Christ! You know it ain't easy

Another quickie, untouched weird cover. In case you couldn't tell, I'm kinda in low content mode for the holidays. And other stuff. It's complicated.

Anyway ... from the "What the Hell?!? Wait.. I'd totally buy that" files...

Yeah, I'll keep an eye out for that one. I hope it's an Eros title..

With Thoughts

Best wishes, girl. From all of us.

Story, in case you missed it.

It's an Ackbar!

Alright, let's get right to it.. I'm all-agiggling already with this one...


Hahahaha! Get it? It's a Boobie Trap! Bwahahaha! Oh, I crack myself up sometimes!

And ladies? That would totally work.


And, we're back! Back with a quickie, but back.

Apparently the holidays don't end after the actual "holiday." I'm still cleaning up and putting things away. And of course, preparing for the next holiday. But, I'll have 2 weeks off for that one. Not that I want to take 2 weeks off, but there we are.

Anywhoo... Here's more fun with romance comics...

Man, my new home theater kicks ass.

If I ever do get a big ta-do home theater? I want a full selection of stock footage. For occasions like that.
