Living Under A Red Sun

Bad day. In fact, it's been a looooooooooooong month, people. You know about the technical difficulties but I haven't even gone into the hacking cold, the freezer catching on fire (yes, you read that right) or the- ah, forget it. This isn't "Look Out! Here Comes an Emo Blog!"

While I don't have the energy to post at length about why Emma Frost is awesome, what I thought of this week's comics, which Avenger has the worst personal body odor or how the suits at Time Warner are being heartless jackasses - I do have one thing, my friends: LINKS!

Links to free comics and graphic novels to read! So please enjoy these with my humble apologies for the lack of actual content - 17 free graphic novels for your reading pleasure, most of which I haven't even read. I can definitely vouch for Fables, Y: The Last Man, Fell and Sandman. The others, I make no promises.

And if you care for something deeper and more thought-provoking to read, please read this 224-page graphic novel Shake Girl.

Now it is high time for this crazy thing called sleep I hear all the kids talking about. As I understand it, tomorrow is both another day and contains a point wherein the sun will come out, so let's just see how that goes.

Gosh, you HAVE been having a miserable time of it lately, my dear. isn't particularly tactful of young Jimmie there, to come running up to snap a picture of Superman as he's bleeding to death. Perhaps Lois should gently chide him.

Sadly, more than a little. Today involved an hour in the dentist's chair. Good times, I tell ya. Thanks for the sympathy!

Jimmy Olsen has always struck me as needing a good slap to the face and a stern screaming at. Putting aside the whole "I take pictures instead of helping!" thing, the redheaded manchild endangers his life so freakin' often that Supes has to give him a special watch to call him for help. That isn't a sign you're "Pals" Jimmy - it's a sign that you're Special Needs.

Seriously, the only Jimmy Olsens in popular fiction who haven't annoyed the crap out of me are the poor, lonely looking schlub Jimmy in Superman Returns and Iceman Jimmy in Smallville.

The Dentist on top of your freezer exploding? Urrgghh!

Yes, Jimmy IS annoying, although I find that he's improbably amazing in All-Star Superman. And he cross-dresses so well.
