Pan’s Labyrinth left me feeling little. I wanted Smokin’ Aces, but had to settle for Blind Guardian: The Movie. It’s better than Mimic, in case you were wondering, and it has ”Harry” from the excellent A Friend Like Harry, but Hellboy is superior. Apples and oranges, I know. I need Smokin’ Aces. Right now, the stupid light needs to be on HIGH for 2 – 3 hours.
Thanks go out to colleague Bob Mehr for gifting me with this. Sealed. Worst artwork of ’06? Me thinks so.

You can start saving up today. The shelves in my office must buckle under the weight of Born Loser, Crankshaft, Frank and Ernest, and Tumbleweeds anthologies. Competing writers fear no more, as I’ve eschewed all inspired book proposal ideas in favor of a 1,328 page examination of marginal funny page underdogs.
That’s right. The barely-veiled racism, the strips written and illustrated by two people, the existentialist box car hobos, the crotchety bus driver that grumbles at technology….I can’t get enough!!
