Mark Sable in Occupy Comics represents everybody reading Bleeding Cool. Possibly some of them writing it as well.

A pottymouth Red Skull? Honestly, such language, I don’t think I’ve ever heard the like. I know he’s a Nazi, but there’s a time and a place.

Look at that instant apologia for similar, more misogynist language in Batwoman there. Classic Jimmy Carr trick. Not that I’m saying Jimmy Carr is a seven foot scaly lizard creature. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But, again, such uncouth language, not fit for a lady’s ears.

Oh, no, apparently it is, in this scene from The Liberator #1.

imageWhat is it with Bloodshot and cows? He does seem to have a thing for them. Howabout a spinoff title, Bloodshot/Cow with them kissing on the front?

Captain Midnight #0 also has a problem with language, though it seems to be the information being imparted rather than the specifically chosen words that’s the issue here.IMG_0031

Talking of language choice, Captain Marvel notes that you can say “Giant Flying Robot” four times in a panel and it’s fine.

While in Wonder Woman, Lennox is probably at his most English-authentic with this classic Millwall football chant. You can hear it here.

House Of Gold And Bones encounters a little sexually flirtation. Taking the last word of the book’s title a little too literally.

Wild Blue Yonder #1 features some boots. I like well drawn boots in a comic. Chris Weston probably does them best, but this isn’t bad at all. All though, like the panel above this one, our co-star doesn’t seem to appreciate old boots.

Don’t people know that a woman isn’t anyone’s property? Come on Edgar Allan Poe’s Fall Of The House Of Usher! Things are getting too sexist around here, anything we can do to solve that?

mara

I don’t think it is Mara. This is getting to be a real problem in this article. How did we solve it last time?

IMG_0027

That’s right, the moment you have any sexist comment, you need an apologetic lizard to make it all right again. In the Superior Spider-Man, the Lizard appears to be sniffling, which will do. And despite being a lizard, manages not to call anyone a bitch, whcih is an improvement.

Not the only animal-people wandering around with the return of Bronze Tiger in Red Hood And The Outlaws. Now a fully humanoid tiger. But which would win? Bronze Tiger or the Lizard?

You know, I wonder if we may see a Marvel/DC crossover for September 2014? it’s about due, isn’t it?

IMG_0003

 Supergirl despenses with the humanoid aspect in this little al fresco scene. Clerly Val-Ro is giving Dramonicus a much needed mane-cut. It’ll just get in his eyes, otherwise.

IMG_0025

X-Files is back… and those who wondered if old continuity would be junked, need not worry. It’s still all about the baby!

IMG_0023

Mulder and Scully aren’t the only familiar faces who are back. Can we call this 101 Bullets now?

IMG_0004

Say, is that Mark Millar’s Sonic The Hedgehog-style character Kraakkl, the Flash’s imaginary friend, in the Vibe enclosures? I can envisage Vive hijinks there…

Judge Dredd Year One decides to show us that love is blind.

dreamthief2

Dream Thief also seems to be taking the last word of the book’s title a little too literally.

While Darth Vader seems to be performing exploratory surgery on a prolapse.

That’s it! congratulations, you made it through another week’s worth of comic books. So how exactly are you feeling, Baltimore: The Inquisitor?

baltimoreinquis Yeah, that’s about right.
