Okay, so last night's South Park was a whole lot less topical than I thought it would be. Instead of a veiled social commentary, we were treated to a Die Hard spoof. It was still pretty funny. Check it out this weekend when it encores.
While I was not able to attend New York Comic Con this year, I was certainly there in spirit. As you may recall, I was pretty jaded when it came to comic books back in September (click here to read "Smeared Ink: When Comics Get Real"). A lot of my favorite characters were venturing into very dark territory, and it seemed like any semblence of that "gee whiz" comic book appeal had perished along with Captain America over a year ago.
However, things seem to be looking up. Amazing Spider-Man has been pretty spectacular (or amazing, for consistency's sake), and I'm really looking forward to Marvel's Secret Invasion series and crossover event, which will be rolling out over the next few months.
Speaking of comics, check out my Broken Frontier interview with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero scribe Larry Hama, who's acting as a consultant on the live-action G.I. Joe film, due in theaters in 2009.
Now if you'll excuse me, Call of Duty 4 is, well, calling me. If you need me, I'll be the dorky bald guy yelling over his headset in Lolspeak. I can has sniper rifle?
