Weekend Table Talk: Angry Cocks Edition

A lot happened this week. There was Canada Day, Independence Day, and the day you finally figured out that 24 is not too young to trim your nose hairs. Unfortunately, all of those monumental events meant that a lot of people had days off this week. So not a lot happened in comics, but what did happen was pretty cool. Check it out…

So, Higgs boson tells Jesus to clean his room and Jesus is all like, “You’re not my dad!”

Wondering what all the fuss is about the Higgs boson discovery? Or just wondering what the hell it is? So is everyone else, despite what they tell you after a few cosmopolitans. Fortunately, Technabob found a great comic explaining the whole thing, plus a little extra. It’s written and drawn by Jorge Cham, the same guy who does the wonderful PhD Comics.

Well, if DC did it…

DC had a really successful relaunch last September and they’re still reeling in the rewards of good storytelling. Looks like Marvel’s taking a cue from them. Marvel NOW!, despite it’s name, is not an ’80s workout video. It’s the lame name of Marvel’s planned relaunching or launching of 20 titles. Here’s hoping there will be a book that will feature the characters acting their actual age. You know, featuring a 50-year-old Spider-Man telling Wolverine to “calm down, middle age ain’t nothin’.” If it’s anywhere near as badass as Old Man Logan, it’ll be just fine.

Featuring gory-as-hell indigestion.

The lawsuit against The Oatmeal was dropped

The Oatmeal is hilarious. Unfortunately, wacko lawyers and sketchy websites don’t agree, so The Oatmeal ended up at the receiving end of a lawsuit over some things he said about Funny Junk (link not included because it sucks). You can read all about in typical Oatmeal fashion here. But now the lawsuit has been dropped, after The Oatmeal raised over $200,000 for charity. The moral here is that every time you talk smack, charities benefit.

The guy who writes Chew is writing Batman

John Layman, who writes one of the most badass comics on racks today, will be writing for Detective Comics starting with issue 13. Here’s hoping Poyo gets a cameo.

"I'm in this for the money."

Perhaps he takes out Scarface… Because, seriously, how hard is it to kill a puppet?

There’s a rare comic auction in Edmonton

So if you’re in the Edmonton area and feel like getting your hands on the first issue of The Avengers, there’s an auction going on at the end of the month. Get to crackin’ that piggy bank.

Well… See ya in August!

I’m heading out to Croatia for three weeks, so this blog won’t be updated while I’m gone. Avoid crying for the time being – I’ll be back in time for Civic Holiday. Until then, just keep watching this awesome video of hipsters trying to guess what the Higgs boson is. Much love!
