Holy...What Was I Saying, Batman?

In regard to a conversation I had yesterday, a gallery:

When Superheroes Get Old, courtesy of Donald Soffritti.

For maximum effect, you should let this youtube video play in the background as you view the pictures. Don't watch the video, just listen to the song.

Also, in a vaguely related way, the Justice League of Punks.

Panels Out Of Context #44

From Amazing Spider-Man #657. Written by Dan Slott, art by Marcos Martin & Humberto Ramos, and lettered by VC's Joe Caramagna. Marvel, 2011.

I love the fact that Spidey's sleeping with his mask on here, like he can't take it off.

A Short Time But A Merry One

This week the (once Daily) Cabal is wrapping things up. If you remember, I started in as part of a group of new writers in the fall of last year, hoping to bring some life into the site. Considering the original crew has decided to close up shop, I would say it did not work. Hopefully this does not make me Cousin Oliver.

At any rate, I'm sad that it's come to an end, but proud for my short time participating in it. For those of you interested in such things, here's a list of my contributions to the site, from most recent to oldest:

"Staff Disaster Plan #24"
"Tea"
"Superhero Soup"
"The System"
"Anything"
"The Yuleist"
"Father Time"
"Reset"
"Looking Up"
"The Kosmomancer's Apprentice"
"Elephants"
"Questions"

I'm pretty sure the site will stay up, and may even updated with new material from time to time, but I think that'll be somewhat irregular.

Panels Out Of Context #42


From Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #1. Story by Malachai Nicolle (age 6), drawn, inked & lettered by Ethan Nicolle (age 30), and colored by Dirk Erik Schulz. Dark Horse, 2009.

The webcomic becomes a comic book. By the way, this is everything right about comics, as far as I'm concerned. Also, Axe Cop.

Although you can't see it, Wolverine's thought bubble says he wanted to be a lumberjack.

Any similarity between this panel and my parenting style is purely coincidental, I swear.
