On the importance of variety...

  1. No "it's true" tag?
    Okay, comparing Marvel to McDonald's in terms of 'nutrition values' is over exaggeration, but there IS more to comics than Marvel (or DC) and people who read exclusively those miss out on so much!

    1. I thought it was pretty accurate

  2. What else are you going to eat from McDonald's? I made a funny.

    1. No you didn't.

    2. Yes, he did. You just don't get it. It has to do with the subtleties of where the comic placed "only" in the sentence.

    3. I think what he means is that as soon as you say 'I made a funny', you didn't. Rule of comedy.

    4. @Anon 8.17pm

      I got it just fine, thanks. Still doesn't make it funny.

    5. Also explaining the joke (Anon 8:17) doesn't help make it any funnier.

      Maybe you should look into the rules of comedy 8.17, because you clearly don't get them.

  3. While you CAN read only Marvel comics, if you do, you're missing out on a lot of great work.

    3. The internet = that diner down the road, you know the one. It doesn't have an actual name, it just says "Diner". Its relationship with health and safety inspection is rocky at best, and you should never, ever order anything that would be eaten with a fork, but DAMN if the don't have the best damn burger you've ever had.

    4. OK, now which one is BKM? :) http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/world/2005-08-05-muslim-burgers_x.htm

    5. -> OK, now which one is BKM? :)

      Either Teshkeel or AK Comics would fit that description. Moreso since neither one found popularity in the US an neither are still printing (Teshkeel is available digitally). Jalila, Zein, Aya, Rakan and the 99 all deserved better.

    6. Cool! Since BKM is French, now I wonder which fast food chain L'Association is. ;) BTW, how many Aya's are there in comics? Just the 1 in the 99 and the one in Aya de Yopougon, or are there more? :)

    7. Aya was published by AK comics. She was a Batman-like character based in... Algeria? Totally different publisher from the 99, which was published by Teshkeel.

      Those are the only two Ayas I know about in comics. And the only reason I know about the other Aya is because I keep seeing it in eBay searches for Aya comics.

  5. Dynamite = Carl jrs
    Archie = Sonic

  6. I'm sorry, if DC would stop hitting the reset button over and over again like it was going out of style I'd probably care more. But until then, it's Mahvel baby!
