Not every story is for every reader? So now he talks down to me? After 45 years or reading comic books like it's my religion I deserve a little more respect from an industry with contempt for it's readers. Some creators get it that comics should be fun but many shouldn't be in the business at all. Maybe not everyone is cut out to Edit a comic book either. Maybe Brevoort has run out of ideas and needs make way for someone else. Just saying. Damn my outrage feels good. Don't fuck with me when it comes to comic books. I have seen and read it all. I have survived every stunt your tried to throw at me and I took your shit like a good little soldier just to get my fix of funny books. So when I have an opinion on comics, I think you should listen to me and this Captain America 'stunt' is all wrong. I almost don't want to follow the story but I will because I am full of shit and my love for comics is pure.
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.
