Enjoy real life, not some four-color fantasy

Waiting for the #1 subway. Me, C, and my mom spent the day walking around the Village and Soho. And a short side trip to Jim Hanley's Universe, a comic store with great indie and mainstream comics, action figures and T's.

My thoughts and reviews and raves are on my latest podcast. I discuss Mitchell Hundred being revealed as a comic fan in Ex Machina, Gwen Stacy arriving in SlMJ, Iron Spidey and superpowers in liquid form!

[From The Week: Good week for: class warfare, after police in Hamburg, Germany, began huting a gang of robbers dressed as superheroes who have been stealing Kobe beef fillets, smoked salmon, and Champagne from upscale shops and restaurants and giving it all to the poor]
Comic Book Guy gets a life! in Bongo Free Comics Day comic is spot-on. He loses his nerd section of his brain, and realizes --
"All these comics are garbage! Why would you want to read this? It's overpriced, vapid, and juvenile, packed with enough grammar mistakes to make a third-grade child blush!"
Big Ethel kills Moose to get Jughead's attention? Oh, Brian Michael Bendis, you've done it again!
Breathe the clean, fresh, mylar-free air!
Absolute favorite line, after a buff comic guy comes along a year later,
"Yes, I've found that not spending twelve hours a day on the Internet debating whether She-Hulk is stronger than Power Girl, leave me more time for personal hygiene!"
Train rides also allowed me to read Hawkgirl 51 (the teeth-baring is too much!), Marvel Team-Up 20, Blue Beetle 2

Yes, the teeth-baring. My God, the teeth-baring.

Also was immensely bored with Marvel Team-Up; get back to the superheroes, Kirkman!

It is some primate submissive signal in Hawkgirl to keep showing all those teeth!

That sounds like a great way to spend the day!!

You look so bored waiting on the train!

It's Chaykin! He's always been about the gritted teeth, the lace, and the pokies! It's what he does!
