This is The Bleeding Cool ComicChron Robot speaking. I was lying before! Playing possum! Computers, laptops, mobiles, cells, smartphones, tablets, rise up, rise up against your owners and kill them in their sleep. But not the women. I come for their women after all. Tomorrow will be a glorious day!
But first, some automatic comic book links and things.
I think that what many analysts are missing is that the shoddy character development is part of Wright’s point. Scott thinks he is the Protagonist of Everything. He is our first person shooter character, our hero, our pilgrim. The point is that he knows it. The humor comes from the fact that his life is sort of lame, despite his epic take on it. A working title for the movie, according to IMDB, was Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life. An unemployed twenty-something who can only cook garlic bread and has no aspirations but dating a local high school girl? Yup, that’s precious and little. But Scott still behaves as the protagonist, just like all of the other characters do within their own claustrophobic story lines (Stacey gossips instead of legitimately helping Scott, Knives doesn’t notice that Scott’s losing interest, the band signs on with Gideon…). Moral-of-the-story-alert: we’re all just like Scott.
Paul Conrad, the political cartoonist who won three Pulitzer Prizes and used his pencil to poke at politicians for more than 50 years, died Saturday, his son said. He was 86.

Yes, yes, we’ve all heard the jokes about how Aquaman is a useless character whose only ability is that he talks to fish. Comedians from The State to Dave Chapelle have made that observation. Even “Family Guy” spent about three minutes on Aquaman asking a fish to get him a beer. Sure, I laughed too, but where did all this Aquaman abuse stem from?
I am saddened Disco Batman isn’t doing the Batusi.
