GREAT week, this.
Who needs Alan Moore when we have THE Grant Morrison?
Super excited about this title. Can't wait to see how it works.
The awesomeness of this title continues.
More Morning Goodness please. Thank you.
One of the funniest books I've read in a long time. You are really missing out a burst out laughing read.
This is some quality stuff right here.
Hmm. We shall see.
This book hasn't slowed down for approximately 75 issues.

|He thinks you're a terrorist.|
He said the political tone in America was "too violent", "too vitriolic" and filled with hate. He swore to live up to the ideals the little girl one of you leftists murdered. The ideal of a politician as a role model and as someone that is inherently good.
Here's a few parts of that speech followed by what he's done, for his part at least, since then to live up to that promise he made to the dead 8 year old girl that was murdered by one of you lefties.
And so deserving of our good example. If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should, let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost. Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away with the next news cycle.
The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives - to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud. It should be because we want to live up to the example of public servants like John Roll and Gabby Giffords, who knew first and foremost that we are all Americans, and that we can question each other’s ideas without questioning each other’s love of country, and that our task, working together, is to constantly widen the circle of our concern so that we bequeath the American dream to future generations.
I believe we can be better. Those who died here, those who saved lives here - they help me believe. We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another is entirely up to us. I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.
That’s what I believe, in part because that’s what a child like Christina Taylor Green believed. Imagine: here was a young girl who was just becoming aware of our democracy; just beginning to understand the obligations of citizenship; just starting to glimpse the fact that someday she too might play a part in shaping her nation’s future. She had been elected to her student council; she saw public service as something exciting, something hopeful. She was off to meet her congresswoman, someone she was sure was good and important and might be a role model. She saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take for granted.
I want us to live up to her expectations. I want our democracy to be as good as she imagined it. All of us - we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.
Jimmy Hoffa's Introduction of Obama:
“We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers,” Hoffa said. “And you see it everywhere, it is the tea party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they've got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war,” Hoffa said.
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong (sic)”
And the people working hard here, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry, Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa, UAW President Bob King, Utility Workers President Mark Langford, we're proud of you and your congressional delegation.
Vice President Biden calling us terrorists.
Congressman Andre Carson’s claims that the tea party supports lynchings.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters telling tea party activists to “DIE, GO DIE AND BURN IN HELL!"
Yep, he sure is "raising the political discourse". At least he lasted 2 months before the natural way of the left (hate-mongering, one-sided-politics-of-fear-rhetoric, hate speech and intolerance) began to pop up again in his "town hall meetings" and amongst his supporters and your fucking Vice President. At least he's that sweet little man all of you lefty whackos voted for think he is. What a great job he's doing showing that ACTIONS speak louder than SPEECHES.
That last paragraph was sarcasm, in case you leftists didn't get it.
Keep ignoring the facts, lefties, you're losing and losing badly. Keep allowing yourself to be herded into the Party of Hate, Ignorance, Intolerance and Warmongering. You're swell folks. Keep those blinders on, you're not going to want to see how badly your Messiah is going to fail, and how long it will take for your ilk to ever see power again.
You overshot your load, you tried to get the most extreme fundamentalist lefty radical in the office and you succeeded. And we thank you for it. Because true Americans will get back into power...true servants of the people will be back in that office, repair the damage he's done to the citizens of this country, the citizens of our allies and the citizens of countries he wanted to drop bombs on in the interest of oil.
So thank you, again, because it showed what you're all about. You've been exposed as the anti-American, disgusting hate-filled slave-traders you truly are.
Paging Cindy Sheehan....Cindy Sheehan. Paging Cindy Sheehan.

Scott Synder's "Severed" (Image): Talk about creepy. The first book, comic or otherwise, to actually give me the chills.
Joe Harris' "Spontaneous" (ONI Press): A slacker that works at a mall burger joint can predict when people are going to fall victim to "Spontaneous Human Combustion". Does he help them or warn them? No, he just watches. Oh, and his best friend that helps him track people is one of the people on his list.
David Lapham's "Damaged" (Radical): A GREAT character story about two old school cops trying to deal with the incoming newbies. One of them goes rogue while the other tries to both help and stop him. Full of brotherhood, fatherhood, growing old type themes. A real sleeper, the first issue was amazing.
Jason Ciaramella's "The Cape" (IDW): A super slacker with super powers. He disposes of his first "enemy" in a way you'll never see coming. Hysterical.
Mark Roslan's "Broken Pieces" (Aspen): The USA has been nuked and two doctor's attempt to develop a cure for the damage to people. The way this story is written, it's told through the viewpoints of both doctors - attempting to explain what happened - while we silently follow a "monster" of a human being stitched together from about 30 other people.
