You'll forgive me, but I won't be reading any comments until after I've seen the movie. :P
The sad, coincidental, and somewhat unbelievable postscript to this little tale: as I was editing the photos for this comic, my husband came into my office and informed me the light on his Playstation was blinking. It is now a very expensive paperweight... that contains a Duke Nukem Forever disc.
I've watched a lot of werewolf movies, hoping that someday I will find an excellent one. I'm always disappointed. It shouldn't be that hard! These things write themselves. Silver Bullet and the original Teen Wolf are the best we have so far, and that is not saying much. Someone fix this!
I normally mock my writer's block with the Dream Fairy, but I have found myself missing Batmint lately. Also, I seriously could not find her cowl when I took the photographs. Panic was averted when I found it later on my desk.
That's right, I made a joke about McFarlane figures. Hey, Toyfare is out of print. Someone had to do it!
I posted a comic Monday to make up for not updating Wednesday last week. Be sure to go back if you missed it!
Ponies are vegetarians, so zombies and vampires are the most frightening monsters to them. That might explain why they make even more zombie movies than we do!
Most zombie fans are divided into two camps: Pro-Fast Zombies and Anti-Fast Zombies. I've even seen Anti-Fast Zombie bumper stickers. The word "zombie" brings up images of slow-moving, undead masses, so there are fierce debates on whether the newer, infected-style creatures can be called zombies. Fans of classic film and role playing games, however, are quick to point out that both are different from the original concept, and that they are missing the presence of the very cool Zombie Master. And then there are the Resident Evil-style, mutated zombies! Personally, I do not understand the division. I love zombies in all their gooey forms.
Many, many apologies for the late update. I pride myself on keeping a steady, reliable schedule every week, so I hope no one was too bummed out.
A large part of Minty's personality is based on my husband, and he actually did this last week. He was so excited to finally have a good Predator movie out after a string of really awful movies starring Aliens and/or Predators, that when he saw an official "sequel" comic, he bought it. Despite being written by David Lapham, it is a truly terrible story. Kris couldn't find an email address to send a complaint, so when he found an address to Dark Horse human resources, he directed his rage at them, instead. LOL! He found a more appropriate address later, but I can only imagine the reaction of the secretary who received his sarcastic job application.
Everything I ever wanted to say to a customer while I was working in comics. We had several customers boast to us that they had the first issue of Superman, one proclaiming that it was "still in the plastic!" The utter absurdity of this--that they could have something so incredibly rare in their possession, let alone that something from that era would come wrapped in plastic--was completely lost on them. It makes the news every time one of these comics auctions, but what the news fails to report is that there are only about 100 known copies of Action Comics #1, and that no, you probably don't have one. No, they leave that to comic shops to explain to disappointed customers who thought they'd suddenly found a way to pay off their mortgage.
It's difficult to explain that without sounding like a jerk.
For the MLP collectors in the audience, I have a new round of auctions!
