Who says comics aren't real literature?

Here is some more info about the book, Kurtlover. :) I must confess that I haven't heard of many of the writers, but the essays I've read are very good.

Originally posted by Bamfette I can so totally identify with that. we have Cherry Coke now, but up until, say, 2000 or shortly before, we didn't.

Who says comics aren't real literature?

I've found a cool book that I'm giving my brother for the holidays. :read It's titled Give Our Regards to the Atomsmashers: Writers on Comics . As you can guess by the title, it has several essays by various writers about the impact comics had on them. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone was ...

I need a NC tattoo

I saw a guy with a Captain Britain tat on his leg this past summer. I commented to him how I loved Excalibur, and he said only about four people have ever mentioned that they knew who Cap was.

Just to clarify, my costume choice was a total joke. However, it is so hideous that it does have a certain charm. :)

Alright, kiddies; since I haven't posted a pic in a while, here's me all Gwen Stacy-ed out -- pre-Brooklyn Bridge. ;) It's hard to tell, but I do have on the requisite black books and headband.

Yeah, I think many people have the theory that [spoiler] the kids are either Harry's or Norman's[/spoiler], but personally I hope it doesn't turn out that way. At any rate, I've given up trying to figure out how this will all unfold and am just enjoying the suspense.

Is anyone reading the "Sins Past" storyline in Amazing? I'm very curious about how they wil make everything fit together (especially the time aspect), but the arc is certainly generating a lot of talk.

Any comments?

Would that include the extra $ it took to get my BAMF license plate? (Ha, ha.) Sans comics, I'm guessing probably around the $50 range; that's including the box of Cookie Crisp cereal I bought several years ago so I could send in for the poster of Kurt swinging on a trapeze in the circus with random...

Nighty's best feature?

Well, at first I thought he was just the coolest looking character - blue fur, elven ears, tail, all of it. But, his sense of humor made him a really endearing character to me. His religious dedication was icing on the cake.

I think the concept is amazingly inventive and can't wait to see how it plays out. I'm always so impressed when writers come up with such outlandish ideas but make them work!

Kitty is also my favorite character with Kurt being a very close second. :)
