Minor Comic Book Geekery
5 ways that Sandman changed the world.
I totally need to reread that series. This is where I would usually give you a link to amazon and encourage you to click and buy, but in honor of Edie-who-sells-books, I'm going to tell you to go to your local comic book shop instead. And buy, because seriously, y'all, Sandman is great stuff.
In other news, a trade paperback from a comic called "Y:The Last Man" appeared in my house at some point. I guess it's theCSO's. Or if you've stayed in my house recently and it's yours, let me know. Anyway, I was thumbing through and saw that a character has a zippo lighter with "Fuck Communism" engraved on it and I felt super cool because I knew what that was a reference to.
Then I realized I SERIOUSLY needed to re-examine my definition of "Super cool"
Hat tip to Jason Pitzl-Waters' Twitter Feed for the Sandman link.
who can't believe she just hat-tipped a twitter feed, but there you go
Ps. This may be a Gen-Xer thing, but have you guys ever found yourselves liking a really stupid pop song from your younger years at least partially because you have happy memories of making fun of it with your college friends?
I've noticed that in a decade's time, my ironic appreciation for this lame song has become unironic and it's weirding me out.
