Transmetropolitan or Comic Books that Must survive the Apocalypse, Part 2

Once upon a time, a man who was wise in the ways of science fiction (but little else) told me:

“Science fiction is, essentially, sociopolitical satire”.

What I Think About Stuff-Scud: The Disposable Assasin


                                                                       Awesome fan art brought to you by Bezzalair.

Scud the Disposable Assassin or Comic Books that must Survive the Apocalypse #1

With the nerdgasm that I called the Metabarons Retrospective behind us, I think I should tackle this awesome comic book series with a touch more dignity in an effort to present myself as a proper internet reviewer, instead of yet another slobbering fanboy. But before I put on my serious face

The Place He Can Call Home


Long ago, I met a traveler. I first saw him in his garden, kneeling over an exotic-looking flower, its blossom the color of lemon, like a babe wrapped in a blanket, sleeping peacefully. I’d seen him leaning over that flower, as he picked the weeds that grew around it, pinching them between his thumb and forefinger and pulling them off, his lips moving all the while.

Intrigued, I walked close to his fence and pretended I was trying to peek around the curb, as if I was waiting for the bus. I heard the old man say:

“…swam in the oceans of Ganymede and spoke to its people, who think of the outside world as an impossibility.”

What I Think About Stuff-The Metabarons Retrospective, Part 4



Part 4-Aghora the Confusing

DISCLAIMER: Due to Aghora’s peculiar gender issues, this Metabaron will be referred to with the personal pronoun hse (he/she) and the possessive pronoun hir (his/her). If this confuses you, it’s because you only have one set of genitals.

What I think about stuff- The Metabarons Retrospective, part 1



Oh my God.
I absolutely LOVE the Metabarons.

And there you have it. That should have been the entirety of this review, but you’re not here for that of course. You’re not here to see me treat my fanboy reactions with dignity, or even watch me as I try to be objective about it. You’re here to watch me slobber all over it and by Jehovah, this is what I’m gonna do!
