I really enjoy doing my Toys in the Bookstacks, and I must admit that I loved finding the books for this one. I don’t know as though I’ve ever done one that wasn’t intended to just be funny before.

The moral is simply that I made you something.

Love,

This is seriously one of my favorite Toys in the Bookstacks in ages.

As always, click the pic to make it bigger. Now please release your geek–this one can level you up–and enjoy:

“Uh, Michael? Did you see the name of the guy who wrote THIS book?”

“I need beer, Ted.”
“Me too, Michael.”

I’ll be shifting hosts in a few days, so benchilada.net may be down for a little bit.

While I have no doubt that you’ll survive, I do want you to know that if you need anything while I’m gone, there are other resources that can help.

Can I just say how much I love the barter culture? I recently put up a request for a bowling-ball on the local Craigslist–Nadja’s making a gazing-ball for the back yard–and was happy to hear that a person was willing to go swapsies for it.

As such, I paid this:

Daredevil Man Without Fear and All Star Superman - I'm bartering these for a bowling ball

For this:

Brunswick Bowling Ball for Barter

It’s a great world.

Speaking of great things, here’s a movie you’ll either love or hate, depending on how awesome you are. It is NOT what you think you’re expecting; instead, it’s freaky and terrifying. Watching it with particular intoxicants may result in your experience being more visceral.

I think that’s it for now.

Love,

benjamin

[EDIT: Hello, Cracked readers! Please enjoy a look at my other bootleg toys, a collection that’s always expanding. Also, you bastards have forced me to consider updating this site. Fine. Jerks.]

Hello, kids.  Two awesome things today.

I have four tattoos, all of them in some way geeky, and I just got one touched-up two days ago:

I got the Flash ring tattoo on my finger touched-up by Rick Kutch at No Regrets Tattoos

It’s Barry’s ring, and my allegiance is ultimately with Wally, but much love to the whole Flash Family.

The man who did the job is Rick Kutch at No Regrets Tattoos in Champaign.

I also just got an incredible bootleg toy for my collection, this time from Greece. It is totally ridiculous and brilliantly strange.

Little Pluckies Ninja Protects knockoff TMNT gun toy 2

Yep. Looks like they finally skipped past the “melee weapons” thing and tried a laser gun. Results? Shredder’s dead, baby. Shredder’s dead.

Fits my hand like a dream. God damn, no wonder those Little Pluckies Protect! Look a this bad boy in action!

Nadja fires the Little Pluckies Ninja Protects knockoff TMNT gun toy
Don’t worry, she’s not terrified of its awesome sparking power but rather I took the photo in the dark and this gun is bright. [EDIT: “And loud.” – Nadja]

The new Fuckbrain Comix is waiting to be scanned and should be ready for posting next week.

See you then,

Remember the Hero / Villain-a-Day thing? That I started about three years ago? And have completed only a dozen-plus of?

Well, [livejournal.com profile] zundian had a double-request, so here we go...

Ambush Bug and Matter Eater Lad don't know who they're messing with

For those of you who don't get this preposterously comic-geeky joke, there's Ambush Bug, who is...well, there's...and Matter Eater Lad has...if...

Fuck it, it made me laugh, but probably because I was up until Stupid O'Clock drawing the damn thing.

Shut up, Shut Up, SHUT UP OH GOD I CAN HEAR YOU IN MY MIND!

Love,

FINALLY somebody willing to get off of their ass and TEACH US about SAVE DRIVING!

THINK - Grand Rapids automobile guide from 1925

Dead children, helpless invalids, the monetary recompense for a human life...sounds like the RNC.

Seriously, that last stat? I'd love to see details. Also, there's nothing about cell phone usage...

No outside food, no smoking, NO CRIPPLES.

The MOST IMPORTANT reason to prevent traffic accidents is #XI:

Some old photo-links is still busted, from the old Flickr Employees Can Be Douchebags incident, and I can't seem to find the original posts for these two Toys in the Bookstacks, the first two I ever did.

So here, enjoy:

"FUCKING FINALLY!"


"FINALLY!"

"I don't think I'd fit in the ring...but those dudes DO look delicious. In a purely culinary, rather than homosexual, way, of course..."

"I don't think I'll fit in the ring."

So, I've been kinda absolutely loving the DC Comics promotion of cheap plastic
power rings given away / sold during the Blackest Night crossover. I gave a set to [info]city_of_dis , who wields them like a motherfucker:

Marc-Anthony wields all of the power rings like the bad-ass motherfucker he is

There's a postcard campaign now to have DC do a Legion of Superheroes Flight Ring as well.

Inspired by the ever-lovely
Comicstriptease's totally awesome contribution, I made mine. I knew there was a reason I kept promo things from movies:

There Will Be Blood Flight Ring Campaign

There Will Be Blood Flight Ring Campaign 2

Let's see if it ever gets mailed. That's my superpower: never mailing anything.

In conclusion, a super hero behaving badly:

If I'd been eating a cheese sandwich, I would have shot cheese sandwich out my nose when I first saw the "ITEM!"-obsessed Martin "[info]worldofagwu" Hand's Legion of Super Potatoes:


UNRELATED: Dave Sim wants you to tell Dave Sim that he's not a misogynist if you want to talk to Dave Sim.
Back in the early 1970's, the comic book title Green Lantern was suffering from bad sales and was slated to be canceled when new-to-the-industry Denny O'Neil took over writing duties with Neal Adams doing the illustrations.

O'Neil had been heavily influenced by the activism of the sixies and threw Green Arrow into the book as an activist foil to Green Lantern, who had been portrayed as a sort of cosmic cop with no idea of what was going on in the world.

The three panels here are what really got the ball rolling, with race addressed in a way it never comic books had never before attempted. The title would later tackle issues like drug abuse and sexism, but this is where it really all began:

So you've helped all these people, Green Lantern... )
HA! Look what I found at the comic shop yesterday. You'll know who you are if you know what this is...

Oh, man, did I...

Yep, I drew some MORE SUPERHERO STICK FIGURES...and man, there are a few REALLY shitty ones...">



How many did you guess correctly?

Oh, also, I think there should be wireless where we're staying, but don't count on there being a ton of updates while we're in Mexico.

What?

Oh, I didn't tell you we'll be in Mexico from this Saturday until next Sunday?

Well...well, I just did.

Smooches,

What happens when I get bored in meetings.



Special thanks to [profile] worldofagwu for providing me with the original image.
A statue of the "Witchblade Bikini Armor," apparently for use against villains who only want to shoot you in the nipples or the bo-jina.



Or the coccyx. Man, not enough jokes get made about the coccyx...



Also, would you prefer the deforestation cookies with endangered pink rabbit:



Or would you like some ChocoThinThin?



The former tastes like any other cookie/chocolate thing Japan produces.
The latter is delicious...because the box has 19 g. of fat (including 6 of saturated fat and 4.9 of trans fat).

Also, Sara's eye is starting to feel a little bit better. At least it's not tearing up all the time.

Well, since I'm made of Stupid and Sour Pudding (also 'cause I didn't go to the comic shop for my books yesterday, so I thought it came out NEXT Wednesday) I left out another important plug during YESTERDAY'S REVISED COMIC POST.

It's out now, it's from Red 5 comics, and it's...

[profile] atomic_robo! Atomic Robo! ATOMIC ROBO! ATOMIC ROBO!



He and Sir Reginald teamed-up a few times, but ever since Robo irradiated Reg's wine cellar, and Reg took a dump in Robo's buffing wax, they've been kinda on the outs.

Atomic Robo: Want To Know More?

Seriously, buy these comics I've been mentioning (Brawl and Parade with Fireworks and Atomic Robo).
There's at least one person involved in each comic that's trying to bust into this crazy scene hardcore.
Some are in it already, some have their foot in the door, and some are going first-time for a solid release.

You can buy check your phone book for the nearest shop and buy locally--which is distinctly preferable--or go online to G-Mart, or New England Comics, or Mile High Comics, or any of the countless others.

Please, think of the children, and by children I mean Starving Comic Creators.

Thank you,

The Management
