A Comic Show – The Violence Against Penis Motif

Posted by November 2, 2010 Comment

Another week, another Comic Show for Bleeding Cool from Aaron and Tri-Force Mike from A Comic Shop and Geek Easy in Orlando, Florida. And Aaron taunts me with his black-and-white sketched variant copy of Superman Earth One. But it’s all about the Serenity graphic novel for Mike.

And then there is Crossed: Family Values giving Aaron his fill of penis. Superboy from Jeff Lemire makes them both happy. Batman And Robin #16 is the complete wrap up of the show so far and explains what Batman RIP actually stood for.

And then they force you to read Invincible. You know, you shouldn’t probably need that much convincing…

Best Book Ever:


INVINCIBLE

ROBERT KIRKMAN! Creator owned super heroes are Indy! Where in Walking Dead it’s the characters that move the story and ‘survival in a zombie apocalypse’ is the setting, in Invincible it’s the SAME brilliant characterization that moves the story except the setting is ‘a coming of age tale with super heroes’! The son of a super man gets his powers, deals with high school, joins a super hero team, and then his dad turns out to be a Zod.
