I love comics. Here’s why:

What is there not to like? Flaming skull with fiery sword? Check. Cheeky 70s dual alternative titles? Check. Cannibalistic redneck pioneer ghosts carrying mining weapons for combat? Check. "Holy fucking shit, this is da' bizness!" emitting from my mouth? Motha-fucking check.

My happy Halloween

I dressed up for the first time in quite some time. This was the vaguest costume out of the whole clinic, but when I told people who I was, they usually responded with, "Oh, that's right!" I walked around the clinic with the Back to the Future soundtrack playing on repeat in my vest pockets. "He must be a sailor."

I had to take a slight hiatus from the music, though, to perform a physical for some dude going to the brig. "So, uh, what are you supposed to be?" I replied, "Marty McFly from Back to the Future." He replied, "Ohhhhh. Uh..."

Best bit of the day was when I was at the front desk and one of the guys that works in the clinic said, "Hey Aguon. Are you supposed to be that guy from Back to the Future?" After affirming, he said, "We were just clowning you because we didn't know that it was you from behind. My man was saying, 'Look at that dude trying to look like Micheal J Fox.' We just thought you were a patient."

Oh, yeah, someone asked me if I was a redneck for Halloween. Sigh.

Embrace Change

I remember that my favorite piece of propaganda that the US dropped in Iraq that I saw on the streets were these pamphlet with the silhouette of a troop with glowing green eyes that said in Arabic: "The Green Eyes see all. The Green Eyes are your friend. Go to the Green Eyes." This is kind of reminiscent of that.

Top Notch Comic Art

This is typical 90's comic shit. Long hair, jacket, and wow! Pouring out some liquor for his homie, who happens to be his dad!

This just in: I am watching MTVs "From G's To Gents" and this is the line I just heard: "Our team captain was Shaun, because he was the person that could speak the wellest." I fucking love this show.

My "The Dark Knight" Review

Imagine that it was totally rocking to go to a rock concert and get punched in the face by the lead singer. Now, imagine that Batman was the lead singer and punched my face a gajillion times.

That is my review.

PS - Here is a cool picture that took me forever to draw on my tablet.

What you should be doing right now.

You should watch Iron Man.

You should watch Battlestar Galactica. The midseason finale is damn good TV. DAMN good.

You should read the comic book Casanova.

I should go to sleep.

Nerd Alert: Futurama meets Hellboy

Free Comic Book Day has came and went and as I was flipping through some of the goods, I came across the coolest fanboy bit that I came across in some time. For those that are fans of the comic book, I'll bet that you'll love the Lobster Johnson reference as much as I did.

*Nerd Alert!* Best. Comic. Ever. Kick-Ass.

I’ve just finished reading the second issue of this comic called Kick-Ass by Mark Millar and drawn by John Romita Jr. This book is the absolute shit for two reasons: (1) It is a comic book about an absolutely normal teenager that decides to be a vigilante and gets utterly fucked up and (2) If you are a comic geek and the first sentence of this blog didn’t get your willy wet, then I don’t know what to do. Also, the best line since, well, the fucking advent of french toast:
