“*sob* They just didn’t know…how much it hurt…to be Superboy, Bruce.” “What, am I your therapist now, Clark?” “I’m sorry, Bruce, I just thought, you know, seeing your parents gunned down in front of you might make you more sensitive to the pain of child-hood.”
The first ten minutes of the live-action Death Note film that all the cool kids are talking about:
Internet jerks spoiled the ending of volume seven for me. The jerks. But in the process I discovered that there was some controversy over the ending of the series. An ending which was broadly telegraphed as early as the first volume of the series. But I guess an unwillingness to engage in careful reading or recognize foreshadowing isn’t limited to American comics fans.
Aw, go listen to some Fall Out Boy, you big cry-baby!

Dear Mr. F–,
Thank you for the informative e-mail. However, I do not feel it is neccessary to
go back and address a statement I wrote in June because, frankly, I still stand
by my inital assessment that the reason the book is being published in English is
because HK Comics wants some of the very lucrative “DaVinci Code” money to be
spent on their products. Honestly, they would be foolish not to, given what an
obscenely bloated cash-cow the book has become.
As for your concerns that my statement was “dismissive,” well, yes, it was
supposed to be. It was what some people call “a joke.” Perhaps you have heard of
Again, thank you for your e-mail. In the future, however, it might be in your
best interest to simply not read my site, for fear that it might once again
inadvertantly offend you.
Thank you again,
(I get, on average, about one of these a week. Usually I just ignore them. But I’m in a lousy mood and this guy was the lucky one who pissed me off enough to not only get a response, but get it posted here.)
