OH NO THEY DI'INT!!!! That's some kind of blasphemy, right there!

Is there such a thing as a 'perfect' book?
Maybe not, but I'd have to agree with some that books like The Great Gatsby and As I Lay Dying are about as good as we'll ever, ever get.

Fun-to-read comics commentary and criticism and related stuff.

Gary Oldman likes being the good guy (Via cleolinda)
“In the past, I’ve had my share of good reviews, but it’s always the crazy, scary, weirdo guy. I don’t even know how it happened. Look at me. I mean, when I’m naked, I look like a bald chicken. How did I get to be a scary bad guy?”
Man, I love Gary Oldman. LOOOOOVE.

In (Deadpool) Comics:

Deadpool as a Garbage Pail Kid: Surprisingly Cute!
(From this guy's blog, but don't scroll through unless you are not easily squicked out by the bizarre lengths to which Garbage Pail Kids goes to...squick people out. Seriously, I had a bunch of GPK cards back in the day (still might, somewhere) and...were they this gross? I mean, they may have been - I remember some of them made me feel ewwy, but...I dunno. Maybe I'm getting sensitive in my old age. Anyway. DEADPOOL. As a GARBAGE PAIL KID.)

Speaking of weird variations of Deadpool: Is it a...Deadpool panda-saur?
(Lanowar's icon. SO BIZARRE. I do like his Secret Invasion banner, though.)

Also, in my opinion, Fabian Nicieza Interviews shed a lot of light on the subtext behind the scenes in a lot of Cable & Deadpool interactions (not to mention they're really fun to read). I love being able to get into Nicieza's head a bit re: the characters, which is what happens if you read this stuff.

Some choice quotes (Warning: spoilers ahoy!):
Collapse )
Fabian Nicieza is AWESOME.

In conclusion: Kevin Kline.
