Here is what to do with some old, broken terracotta pots!
Comics I am currently reading:
Moon Knight- The first six issues were written by Warren Ellis. It’s a reboot of the old series about a man brought back from the dead by an Egyptian god who is now a mad super hero.
Sandman Overture- By Gaiman, it is a prequel to the classic Sandman series.
GI zombie- This comic is about the only (?) zombie in DC world setting. He uses unorthodox methods as an government spook as he cannot be killed.
Samurai jack- A continuation of the amazing cartoon network show from my childhood, it retains the primarily visual story telling methods that the cartoon did.
Saga- Proving further that Ellis is awesome, Saga is a strange story of two lovers from warring worlds who have a daughter in a strange and whimsical science fiction setting.
Trees- More Ellis, because I cannot resist. Trees seems to be a story surrounding a world which has been drastically impacted by the sudden presence of giant alien cylinders that have no known purpose. It’s exploring the science fiction aspects of the setting as well as the social impacts such a change had on the world.
Rat Queens- This is good stuff, about a group of kickass mercenary women in a town where they cause almost more problems than they solve.
Chew (on and off)- I don’t read this consistently as it isn’t my favorite series, but it does have some entertaining ideas. The main premise is a FDA investigator who receives psychic information from eating things.
Sex criminals- This is an odd story about a couple who stop time when they orgasm and use this ability to rob banks. I’m on the fence as to whether or not i like it.
Hawkeye- This is pretty awesome. It’s standard Hawkeye story but well written adn a lot of fun. Similar premis for Black Widow and Ms Marvel
The Wicked and the Divine- This comic is a bit strange. Periodic incarnations of particular gods from polytheistic religions across the world appear every x number of years, and this particular batch of gods decided to go public with their presence.
Shutter- Honestly I’m not sure what’s happening in shutter, but it’s interesting all the same.
Bprd- You know what this is, it’s good stuff. If you don’t know, you need to go to the library and get to work on catching up.
Squidder- Post lovecraftian apocalypse where a soldier has the chance to save humanity again.
Big trouble in little China- A follow up to the movie, it’s a lot of fun. I don’t think it will outstrip the movie in terms of cult viability though,
Empowered- Whenever new issues come out I am all over this. It’s both a good deconstructionist story while addressing issues of racism and sexism without seeming preachy about it.
I’ll add more as I remember them/ pick up new ones
Buster Keaton (October 4, 1895 – February 1, 1966), “The Great Stone Face”
A man famous for directing and acting in silent films, his deadpan expression, physical comedy, and, featured above, his stunt performance. This man did all his own stunts, and they are amazing.
