Two people talking about comic book junk. You people like that, right?
So, some important thing or another is happening in DC today, but tomorrow will be just another new comics day. Be prepared!
SEAGUY: THE SLAVES OF MICKEY EYE #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art and cover by Cameron Stewart
In 2008 alone, superstar writer Grant Morrison killed Batman, put the entire DC Universe through its FINAL CRISIS and concluded the unanimously beloved ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. But what does a writer whoâ€™s written every significant Super Hero do when he can create any Super Hero he wants? The answer, of course, is SEAGUY! Morrison (THE INVISIBLES) rejoins original SEAGUY artist Cameron Stewart (SEVEN SOLDIERS) in an all-new adventure starring the cult-favorite character!
In Seaguyâ€™s cartoon future world, everyone is a Super Hero and no one dies. Itâ€™s absolutely perfect…Or is it? In this follow-up to the cult 2004 miniseries, Seaguy resurfaces with a sinister new partner, a hatred of the sea and a rebel restlessness he canâ€™t explain. Why are Doc Hero and his ex-archenemy Silvan Niltoid, the Alien from Planet Earth, whispering strange equations? Why is Death so useless? And can that really be the ghost of Chubby Da Choona mumbling uncanny warnings and dire prophecies of ultimate catastrophe?
When the grotesque powers lurking behind the corporation known as Mickey Eye and the Happy Group attempt to erase Seaguyâ€™s entire existence, can he possibly get it together in time to save a world so far gone it canâ€™t even imagine the horror lying in wait? Find out here in Morrisonâ€™s own personal reframing of the Super Hero concept for the 21st century.

- And the best is last: Lance and Carla are out of the hospital. She’s been on Twitter a bit lately and I’m pretty sure he’s already wrestling bears, so, you know, they’ll be up to spec quickly. You should still pay attention to those auctions, though because I’m pretty sure they’ll need more shekels.
A new installment is up, and this time Stu gets to wax philosophically about a subject close to his heart.
Mike’s final strip! For now, anyway.
What’d I miss? Nobody killed Batman or anything, right?
Oh, they did? Let me take a look at this.
Oh, hey, there’s no reason at all people would flip out and scream bloody murder over his final actions, because he explained how he was breaking the one rule he would never break before and the situation demanded it, is there? I mean, he addresses the elephant in the room before even pulling out the gun.
Oh, they did? And they’re still?
OK, but I mean, it’s Batman. He made them like ten crudzillion dollars last year with that movie. Morrison put an out for the situation in the first four pages of that comic, to be used by the one character who could be trusted with that sort of power, you know? Surely comic book readers have to…
Tragedy continues to pile up in our latest strip.
What fresh hell is this? A Thursday installment? Why, yes. Yes it is.
I got an email from a friend of mine in the South today about how his local shop handled the Obama/Spider-Man cover.
Please note that it contains racially-charged language that may be considered offensive but is still very much part of the vocabulary of people who really shouldn’t be slinging it around:
OK, here’s what happened at my LCS today. You are not going to fucking believe this…Edited To Add:: The author of this email, Dr. K, has posted his story.
Mike Rosenszweig gets to draw his first Lydia Park rant.
Jerry and Danny both talk a bit about the Obama Spider-Man comic, but Lydia probably has the best idea about tomorrow.
