Keanu's limited in range for an A-list movie star, but I've watched CW network shows, Sci-Fi Channel original series and movies, and multiple seasons of Teen Wolf, and I'm here to tell you he barely scratches the surface of Hollywood Bad Acting

Maybe a mid-life crisis... this tends to be one of the slower burning thread subjects.

Really? Because I've always seen Morrison as quite greatful to Moore for blowing open the doors for that sort of work at DC.

Willoughby Kipling and the Cult of the Unwritten book may have been intended to be an affectionate lampoon of Moore's ├╝ber-arc on Swamp Thing, but the tone struck me as jeering and dismissive on a meta level.

Like a pinch on the neck from Mr Spock

Can our next thread include a Crisis?

Crisis of Infinite Capes!

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

I was going to include some sort of Crisis in the thread description, but then I forgot about it (the Crisis AND the thread description, both). We need to retcon some sort of thread description.

To understand what happened at the diner, we shall use Mr. Papaya! This is upsetting because he's the friendliest of fruits.

Yeah, what exactly are the life changing comics in Victor's life?

At the moment? It's a hodgepodge.

  • "Agents of Atlas" may well be the best superhero funny book out there. Serious old-school fun with a great plot and classic characters.

  • "Secret Six" is, alas, gone for the time being, but it was so popular I suspect it'lll be back. Gail Simone called it "the wrongest book in all of comicdom," and she may well be right.

  • "The Atom." No, seriously. This is fun.

  • "Fables" and "Jack of Tales" -- Bill Willingham's such a weird, inconsistent writer, but all of this has been good. It's always the book I save for last. (Whichever one's in.)

  • "Nextwave" which, also alas, is turning out to be a limited series, but ... "My robot brain needs beer." Love, love, love. The guest appearance of the old "What The?" characters, including Forbush Man, put it over the top for me.

  • "New Universal" is too new to say, but it's certainly got my attention. Same with the new "Justice Society."

  • "Justice League" is coming together. I like the leisurely pace of it, the way Meltzer gets into the heads of some of these characters. And Black Lightning!

  • "BPRD" when it bothers to come out. Love me the whole Hellboy mythos.

Zombies vs. Robots is a life-changing comic. Because of it being called Zombies vs. Robots. And also because it has zombies. And robots. Fighting!
