Got Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection vol. 1 and Golden Age Wonder Woman Vol. 1 for Christmas.  Looks like a lot of vintage holiday reading this time out!

I know Superman is a new concept for you, but there MUST have been a better way to test your theory.

We'll, I didn't want to start this thread on a bummer note, but that's just what it is.
William Messner-Loebs is currently homeless.

The good news is that he's on his way to living in a home again, but the dude needs work.  He still seems to be a great artist so I hope he gets it.

On the lighter side.

Guys, I think I like Rob Liefeld now.

The way that he has leaned into his reputation and jokes about it has certainly made him more endearing than he was in the 90's.
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Started Bitch Planet.  Though issue one does some great world building in a creepy misogynist society, I wasn't completely sold on the series until issue 3, which is fantastic.  Even though the Twilight Zone-type twist is easy to see coming, it is a real moment of triumph and made me realize "Wait, why isn't THIS the main character."

Is it too much to hope they have a cameo in a Deadpool movie at some point?

Shit.  The guy was great and created some wonderful characters like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Question and the Creeper.  Not always a fan of his worldview (the only issue of Spider-Man solely written and drawn by him has Peter Parker complaining about student activists), but it certainly lead to some fascinating books.
