At least the frammistat has more orbs than the Dyson Sphere.

So it seems as if the superheroes in comic books serve the dual purpose of engaging in the action and providing the ongoing narration. This is something I find fascinating.

When I was a little boy playing baseball, I'd do the radio play by play, out loud, including my performance and that of my teammates and opposing players, both real AND imaginary.

Being all grown up, I no longer do that. On the other hand I am regularly interviewed on such stalwart programs as meet the press and this week. But that's not the same thing at all...

The issue is Marvel Two-In-One 75 and it is indeed a classic of characters announcing who they are and what they are going to do. I don't know if I've ever seen one of these shitpiles of fantasy so satisfying in such a juvenile way. I'm sure you'll see more.

Which is why Herr Doktor is so much cooler than Sarah Palin, who annotates her pathetic existence with handnotes...

Smut Clyde said...

The contortionist performance involved in reading the footnotes has limited my career as a public speaker.

Smut needs a footnotophone.

But it is entertaining at the Old entomologist when Smut is drinking, talking and writing on beer coasters at the same time
