I am trying to read Brubaker run and stuff on Captain America. Compare and contrast to the movie, and well, Brubaker seems excellent (only really read Catwoman and Gotham Central though iirc)
I hate getting into new sections of comics it’s all ten hours on wikipedia trying to work out how it all ties together and do I just give up and get the trades OH WAIT LOL trades for older stuff that isn’t Sandman in print just joking. In this case I can’t even find the nice collected editions list that I know has to be somewhere because single issues have so much of that extra bullshit from other stuff and I just want the main story.
Then I went oh wait I want to read the Avengers Assemble stuff by Kelly Sue Deconnick (and some has Warren Ellis?) I’m well behind and those are some bloody good writers. That does have a nice collected editions section but well.
Fucking crossovers. Jesus cuntsticks, I want to read one thing not a million especially when the odds are the other people involved will be terrible because well. Comics. It’s hard enough finding a run of a series with a good author and artist where it works.
Fuck an industry around an interesting medium where the most welcoming way to actually access and read this shit is fucking torrents where it’s all ‘oh you like Brubaker and Captain America here is his torrent run with and here are the side issues and why you might find that interesting’. Noone has nothing on those cunts and well, I’d be happy to pay wankers for that ease of information without having to deal with DRM and comic book store fuckwits. Hell I do end up buying and that’s the worst bit.
There’s something wrong with this. I mean why delibrately alienate readers.
(Especially as the reason I really started engaging with comics was No Man’s Land. So obviously crossovers can be important.)
When he first wakes up, it seems to take him a few seconds to coordinate his ears; so for those few seconds he always has one up and one down, or they’re both at half-mast and pointing in different directions.
Scandal seems to struggle with ‘legs, how do they work?’ especially with her back legs after waking up. She does the most hilarious flops and twists around the bed/couch/whatever she is lying on. So ridiculous. But meant she does the best Dancing Baby Groot impression it was wonderful.
I keep catching my housemate and her dog in the same position.
I love how happy Scandal looks.
Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused
