Me: [surfing surfing surfing ... finds this list.]

Me: Ooooh ... well, I have some of those at least. Where's the original?

[Finds it.]

Me: Ah ... the snooty list. Well, at least I have #40 (and others). Mmmm ... but this list slightly depresses me. It seems even when you go to the far quality corners of comics, you still run up against the white, male, straight monolith. That's kind of a drag.

[surf surf surf ... finds THIS! (occasionally NSFW)]

Me: ... oooooooh.

[reads everything tonight]

Me: Yay! Yay! ... Hey, wait a minute! [flips through "True Porn 2" trade, gasps!] I KNOW THIS ARTIST! I LOVED HER BIT! SHE IS STILL GOOD! :D :D :D Yaaaaaaay!

(I have a long love-hate relationship with webcomics, so this is really significant. I'll tell you guys about it later.)


I also watched the huge-ass Lynda Carter Wonder Woman pilot and it was great. You heard me, great. I loved it. I'm not going to be all "I loved it, but it was campy" or say I love it because it's stupid. No, I genuinely like it and found it really satisfying. Yeah, it's not incredibly sophisticated or serious, but it's not half as corny as that Live-Action Sailor Moon that I watched every episode of. (Even when my Windows Media player decided to play most of it in Pause-O-Vision for the last half of the season.) My only major complaints were the Nazi scenes were kind of boring and the fight choreography kind of sucks but I am looking forward to watching the rest of the series. YAY!

(Ironically, I've got a cold and embarrassing pains that made it hard to walk at one point today. Still a good day to be a comic fan, though.)

16. At Least One Comic That Failed to Finish The Way It Planned To

Sub-Suggestions: Big Numbers, D'Arc Tangent, Atomic City Tales, Underwater, Hepcats, Betsy and Me, Thriller

I was a Hepcats fan. I still am, even though Martin Wagner will never, ever finish ANYTHING he starts. But it's really a shame that this is how Hepcats is listed. Everyone should own Hepcats, PERIOD.

Well, it started as a strip in a college paper. It was really funny then (the college strips are collected in The Collegiate Hepcats). When it became a regular comic, it became very serious. It deals with some major issues, like suicide, rape, etc. Heavy stuff. And oh, the characters are anthropomorphic, but after a couple issues, you don't really notice that anymore. The art is amazing, as is the story. (this collects some of the original comic) (Martin Wagner's official site)

I read issue #0 and #1. Looks like good stuff. I definitely see the Dave Sim influence even with limited exposure to Sim's work. Thanks for sharing this with me!

I unironically love to watch Lynda Carter beat down the Nazis. I don't care. I love it and think it's damn fine television. What this says about me, I don't really care.
