Last night, Bleeding Cool ran the story of an allegation from Hannibal Tabu that the store manager of Los Angeles comic store Comics Ink ripped up a copy of Pretty Deadly #1…
Hannibal Tabu being the same ass that writes The Buy Pile…Comic Ink being the same store that helps him to encourage people to read books in the store and then put them back on the shelves…wow…
Plus these assholes remove comics from people’s pull list and put them back on the shelves to, apparently, do them a favour. No, you jackasses, you don’t deserve anyone’s business.
And now I’m going to go order the first four issues of Pretty Deadly because a) I have heard nothing but good things about it, b) it seems awesome, c) Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios are fucking awesome and, finally, d) as a big middle finger to the jerks at Comics Ink and Hannibal Tabu!
…yeah, that’s a shop that would have lost my business to Amazon and Comixology in about six seconds flat.
Bluewater Is Doing A Paula Deen Comic, Somehow Still Exists
By Chris Sims
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our friends (well, frenemies) over at Bluewater Comics — so long, in fact, that I was starting to think that we were done with them entirely. Sadly, much like herpes, getting rid of Bluewater isn’t that easy. This week, they’re back in the news with another comic cashing in on current events. This time, it’s a biography of celebrity chef / racist Paula Deen.
Tell me this is not a serious thing. This is a placeholder, right?
…was the artist literally told “Draw me a giant vagina monster?” No, really, the focal point of this picture is a lady standing in front of a giant set of Lovecraftian labia.
I feel like I should be labeling this NSFW.
Dinotasia: What did I just watch…?
I just watched a B-movie revenge story. Played out with T-Rexes.
They took his arm. They destroyed his family. Now the only thing he has left is…VENGEANCE!
Complete with our hero getting sweet loving from his wife on the eve of his victory.
Someone tell me this man is trolling. The idea that he’s contributing a dialogue about and the presentation of minorities in fiction is too depressing to contemplate otherwise.
Annnnd this would be where I lost it, friends and gentlepersons. Full on guffawing and rolling on the floor.
It didn’t help that my mind provided a *poot!* sound-effect when I hit that last panel.
I never thought I’d say this, but I may have to give this a rent when it hits DVD.
Just…just go watch the review, OMG.
…why yes, I am going to discount your opinion on whether or not a character is OOC if the only place you’ve read about him/her is in fanfic. No apologies.
