Betch is fish. And by that I mean, I think I found Nemo.

Dear Marvel,

Gloria Steinem is PISSED!


Women ;P

~ Not really but don’t be a MAN and try to convince me your new vision for MS. MARVEL doesn’t require a “MS.” You’d have to be a WOMEN to understand the significance of that tag! And don’t try to justify your lame costume updates as ‘considerate’ when you’ve been serving 35 years of T&A! We didn’t have a problem with the costume, dudes!

You really want to impress a woman? MAINTAIN AN ERECTION!

Member me? I use to be somebody!

Avengers punching X-Men: Part 7!


Do you need a recap? I’m going to assume that most of you have read my Avengers punching X-Men reviews up to this point so you know they can be found HERE HERE HERE HERE HERE and HERE. But I’ll also recap the recap that’s in the front of this week’s book.

When Iron Man attempted to stop The Phoenix Force from destroying Earth his stupid Go-Bot action figure actually caused tPF to splinter and inhabit five X-Men: Cyclops, Emma Frost, Namor, Colossus, and Magik. Since then the super lame disco group known as The Phoenix 5 have reshaped the world for the better much to the Avengers chagrin. So the Avengers take Hope Summers, the intended Phoenix rape victim, to the magical marshmallow world of K’un-Lun where Lei Kung is going to teach her Kung Fu. Meanwhile, Scott is a dickbunny and tells the X-Men to destroy all of the Avengers once and for all.

So, who’s ready for some punching?!

Avengers Punching X-Men: Part 6!


“Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudge!” Just like a Keebler Elf screaming after he accidently knocks a tree-dwelling co-worker into the grist mill; that’s how I feel about writing this recap of AvX Round 7. The previous issue, Round 6, was finally a pretty good issue. A lot happened compared to the previous weeks of nonsense. Then this happened. It’s not that it’s bad; it’s just that it was so boring. You know the trend of movie studios breaking a film into two parts for no reason other than $$$? Harry Potter 7.1 and 7.2, Twilight 4×2, and now Hunger Games 3a and 3b. Well, Marvel broke AvX into about 90 parts and the cracks are really starting to show. There is not enough story to carry us through each issue. The good news is we are more than half-way done.

Let’s start with the cover. It’s a pretty good cover and as my friend Mike pointed out, under the giant AvsX banner at the top was probably Scott’s giant head eye-blasting the crap out of the Avengers. Instead it looks like the Avengers running from Kool-Aid man after he busted though the wall. Oh, yeaahh! Read the rest of this entry →

Issue 184 – Queer COMICSPALOOZA!!!


Whew…Pride Month…amiright!?!?

Eric, Jonathan, Jay, Jeremy, Justin, Tony and Dave

One of the events the CBQties attended was the fabulous 2nd Annual Chicago Comics Queer Comicspalooza! There was queer creators, queer fans, and PBR for days! We learned, we loved, we laughed, we passed out on the floor. Well, while we all recoup from that experience (and I know you could use it you naughty-naughty), why don’t you listen to the interviews we conducted with this year’s CCQC panel: Justin Hall, editor of the brand new anthology No Straight Lines: 4 Decades of Queer Comics; Tony Breed, creator of the always cute, sometimes sassy Charlie & Finn Are Hitched; Jay Fuller, who writes/draws the adorable The Boy in Pink Earmuffs; Jeremy Sorese, producer of finely crafted In The Parlor Room; Jonathan Bell Wolfe, generator of zine dream Tread Lightly; and Eric Johnson…no, not THAT one, but the producer of Radioactive Panda and Stone Clouds! *whew…so many links!*

My preciousssssssssssssssss!!!!!!

What the wha?!  Sweet hot dog in the butt! I am calling it :

From Apollo’s after-school special break down in STORMWATCH (“Closets are for super powers!”) to Alan Scott’s ancient Chinese secret (Sar! He’s Japanese!) in EARTH -2 (The gay Earth!) to yes, the Canadian civil union of J.P. Jinadu in ASTONISHING X-MEN, this month has been GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY! And what, you might ask, was our boy K. Kells doing to make us feel proud?
