On of the most original team of heroes with a weird Lovecraftian origin. This is a dysfunctional family of heroes who sometimes are able to put aside their dislike for themselves and each other in order to save the world.
Their powers are ones you have never seen before and the script is wacky and witty and above all WELL TOLD. Morrison would try to pull something like this off and there would be no way he could have. Sure it was written by the guy in the music group 'My Chemical Romance' - but don't let that keep you from missing this Eisner Awarded classic.
This is about as good as comic books stories get and would make a terrific movie from a studio this prepared to change nothing about the graphic novel like was done with 'Kick Ass'.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
