Three All-New #1’s
Hey, class!!! Sorry, your usual teacher is off on vaycay and who’s your substitute this week? THIS GUY! *points thumbs to himself*
If I was to take example from all of the substitute teachers from my academic past, I would throw in a VHS of a horrible movie (one guy put on Scanners II in high school once, which was odd, but I kinda dug the attempt), or give you guys photocopied wordsearch sheets. Hangman was always fun, though, right?
But NO! I’m way cooler than THAT! With me, you get the REAL DEAL! Or at least, I will try my best to do your normal teacher justice by doing homage to one of my favorite columns of his, which is when he does a series of short reviews of recent fresh titles that have begun from Issue 1!
Sound good? GREAT! Now spit out that gum! Or something!
Now let’s see here…There’s gotta be some #1’s hanging around…oh, these ones will do! Read the rest of this entry »
Okay, first off, before anyone tries to ban me from the internet, I was born a paraplegic boy and grew into a (quite handsome) paraplegic man, so I’m one of the only comic book/ pop culture columnists around that has absolutely every right in the world to do this column and make light of this subject. So neener neener, okay? Go get angry at Seth McFarlane and Trey Parker and/or Matt Stone or whatever you activisty people do.
I guess I’m sort of wondering why it took me so long to write this column…it may seem like a no-brainer to some of you. I think I’m just a dude that goes through his life not thinking about what I can’t do, but what I’m able to do. Being disabled my entire life, this is just something that comes naturally. Plus, I do my darn best to make this column as fun as possible and not be too self indulgent.
That being said, I just recently finished reading Mark Millar’s Superior mini-series about a young teenager with Multiple Sclerosis named Simon Pooni who is given, via a “magic wish monkey”, the chance to literally become his favorite super-hero. It sort of jumped out at me as something I should find interesting.
