Green Beans

Yeah, I’ve been remarkably lazy with blogging this month. I mean, I’ve had lots of interesting things to keep me occupied, like work, and eating and sleeping, and um, video games and… umm, well, I’ve basically been very lazy. And I will probably continue to be lazy. Huzzah for sleep!

Anyway, here’s something I noticed the other day I thought was interesting…

The other day, artist Alex Ross released the latest cover he’d made for the “Immortal Hulk” series (and holy cow, do I ever need to review that series, right?), depicting the Hulk and the Thing sitting down in a diner for some chow.

Hopefully, their waitress is about to inform them that they’re going to have to pay for the booth they’re wrecking — and to remind them about the “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service” sign they apparently ignored when they came in.

But the other great thing about the cover is the little detail of what the Hulk is eating. ‘Cause the thing a lot of people forget is that, ever since the ’70s, the Hulk has really, really loved eating beans.

And he’s loved making other superheroes eat beans, too.

So be like the Hulk and go eat a nice, big bowl of beans. Hey, it’s the weekend, and you don’t have to worry about stinking up your office, right? Plus you don’t have a gamma-powered digestive system, so whatever you do in the bathroom, you’re probably not going to completely destroy the toilet…

Seriously, I ain’t got time for nothing this week. So you’re getting a post full of weird nonsense. Brace yourselves!

Nonsense Monday

It’s another gruesome Monday, and I’ve got no interest in blogging anything.

So here’s a chicken and a little boy smoking a cigarette.


Now back to the salt mines with all of us…

The Best Sound Effect Ever

I’ve never been able to figure out which comic this panel came from (which is why I’ve never used it for Friday Night Fights), but it never fails to make me happy.


I bet if you were ever around during a fight where Thor and the Hulk were smashing cars around, you’d need to go to the bathroom, too.

((ADDENDUM: In the comments, Habbakuk identifies the issue as “The Incredible Hulk #300 – mindless Hulk post-Secret Wars rampaging and being fought by all the different heroes before being banished by Doctor Strange to The Crossroads.” Many thanks, Habakkuk!))

Spring Has Sprung

According to my calendar, today is the first day of spring. So the nice weather can start riiiiiight about… now. And warm temperatures, please — not extreme wind, thunderstorms, or tornadoes, please.

So to commemorate this hopefully happy occasion, here’s a bunch of comics dedicated to spring.






(Yeah, “Hellraiser Spring Slaughter.” Anything for a seasonal tie-in, I guess.)





Seriously, ready for that nice weather right now. I mean now. Now, please. Now? Okay, okay, how ’bout riiiight… now.

Bah, next thing you know, we’ll have a blizzard, just to spite me…

Deadpool Recommends my Blog

Daylight Savings Time is really doin’ a number on my ability to stay awake and concentrate on much of anything, so I ain’t thought of a thing worth blogging about.

So instead, here’s a couple panels of Deadpool plugging this blog.


Because you know a guy aware of the Fourth Wall is probably reading Z-list comics blogs, right?

(Thanks to Derek Moreland for the scans)

(Also, hoping I didn’t have to reduce that too small for y’all to be able to read.)

Adoption Option

In case you haven’t noticed, November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Why am I writing about it now? Well, obviously, because it’s a great cause, an important celebration of adoptees and adoptive families, and a fantastic goal of getting more children adopted into loving families.

And also because maybe I don’t have anything else to write about today.

So should we as comic fans care about adoptees? Well, of course we should! Without adoptees and adoptive families, we wouldn’t have many of our favorite characters!

Clark Kent!

Dick Grayson!

Little Orphan Annie!


Roy Harper!

Donna Troy!

Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa!


Jessica Jones!

Mia Dearden!


Garfield Logan!


Tim Drake!

Astro Boy!


and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

So won’t you and your family consider adoption? The kid you adopt today could be the superhero of tomorrow…
