Late Night Thursday, Baffled Friday Morning Post
Hmmm...out and up too late Thursday...don't really have anything prepared to post today...and the computer has decided that it really really likes to over-heat, which makes long sessions at it a bit problematic.
I should post something comics related, but the best things I can come up with are rhetorical questions that some people will assume are being deliberately provocative, rather than facetious.
Such as: Which comic company do you expect to still have listings in the August 2006 Previews; FC9, Speakeasy or Alias?
Or: Do comic readers find the "solicitisements" of companies like Alias, IDW and Tokyopop in Previews as annoying and unhelpful and poorly designed as I do?
Or: Given the limited number of jokes in the repertoire of your average comics/fantasy/sci-fi fans, exactly how many jokes about V drawing out the pronunciation of the phrase "Mister...Anderson" or having pointy ears under his mask, or Evey wearing Danishs on the side of her head or dying of lack of will to live do we have to look forward to in reference to the V for Vendetta movie?
(Speaking of which, there has been a slight increase in demand for the trade, but availability has only been sporadic at best, due in no doubt to the forthcoming hard-cover re-release. And yes, it does appear that the people asking for it are expecting it to be a kung-fu action comic with lots of knives being thrown in slow motion...)
