Okay, I am going to admit it. I have been pooping all over AvX for the past few weeks but guess what, issue six is actually pretty decent. And it’s long – 38 pages of story. Plus, things are starting to happen, it’s not all punch this and kick that. Issues 0-5 could have been condensed into 3 issues max but it gave me something to complain about, which is one of my top three favorite activities (the other two being masturbating and clog dancing…simultaneously.) This issue jumps around a lot. Both in location and time so bear with me. (or bare with me since as I type this I am nude – but only from the waist to the knees. Use your gaymagination.)

The CBQties were invited to the Great White North to attend everyone’s favorite
elf mutant’s bachelor party! The whole gang made the trip to wish Jean- ClaudePaul and Kyle a happy nuptials! It’s LegionTonyL! Steele! Scavenger! Saro! PattyBoom! stevieD.
And since they couldn’t ignore their loving listeners, the Qties decided to take a break in the back room of Mounties (the best gay strip club in Montreal) to record their thoughts on a myriad of rapid fire issues! You’re welcome!
SPOILERS ahead for Batman #10; Earth 2 #2; Avengers vs. X-Men; and so many others!
And lest we forget…here is the Catwoman picture referenced in the episode (thanks Comics Alliance!)
Avengers punching X-men – Part 4!
Hey yinz guys! Guess what?! We are at issue #5 of AvX. We almost halfway there. We are 5/12 there. Which means that we (and by we, I mean me) still have 7 goddamned issues left to read. If you are wondering how my emotions and energy level has been thus far for this series, I will sum it up this way: Issue 1 was fun. Issue 2 was fun-ish. In issue 3 the cracks started to show and not good cracks like Captain America’s crack. Bad ones like Red Hulk’s which is all inflamed and dry. Issue 4 I realized that this will be painful if I am not reading the gazillion weekly cross-over comics, and now we arrive to issue 5 where I am getting AvX fatigue because nothing is happening and we aren’t even halfway done. Let’s hope that issue 6 gets us over the hump and 7 picks up steam but I doubt it. It’s been like a roller coaster that goes up a hill really quickly, flies off the tracks, and then takes 4 and a half months to crash into the Earth. Let’s see what is in store for us today…
After receiving some geek gifts, Scavenger, SaroSpice, Legion Tony L, and Steele! talk gay, gay, and gay! The DC “iconic” main stream character would come out as a “male gay”. Who could it be?* Plus the Northstar Nuptials and which X-Man is trying to steal their gay thunder. Also we ask the ever pressing question: “is Doop gay?” and we ruminate on who should be gay and who should not. Also, what about trans characters. Hmmm. Lots to discuss…
*Spoiler alert, it’s Alan Scott the lavender lantern on Earth 2. Wait…Earth 2? All gays are now relegated to an alternate universe? We’ll see about that!
