I Can't Make This Stuff Up
Arriving in comic shops in July! The colognes are just tie-ins for the STAR TREK film, you can only imagine the amount of crap that gets sold, like a bottle opener shaped like William Shatner's taint, ah, I mean the USS Enterprise. And there was a bazillion things that were WATCHMEN tie-ins. But the best and most brilliant of all, these one-shots based on Conan the Barbarian and Red Sonja. (An aside, Dynamite has been putting out a Red Sonja comic for several years, and it consistently outsells several DC and Marvel titles. My point here, really: I want to hook a gig with Dynamite.) The two comics are written by Larry Hama, who is not a hack in the least, so its not that gimmicky. But I'd think that that really isn't Michelle Obama gripping Barack's thigh. Though the outfit is nice. I even have to say that Red Sarah looks okay, what with her wearing chain mail underwear and all (and you think Bristol wasn't role-playing when she was fifteen?!?) I can see Hyperboria from my backyard!
