Bonus Content Update: Sims vs. RomComs!
The big news today, of course, is that I have once again been passed over to judge the Eisner Awards. As you no doubt agree, this is a travesty of the highest order.
But at least I've got this:
Yes, the new CRACKED Magazine hit comic book stores and fine bookshops today, and once you plunk down your $3.99--or a mere $11.99 for a one-year subscription--you can enjoy all new comedy from Jay Pinkerton, Mike Nelson and Maddox, along with the first print appearance of Ye Olde Comick Booke Blogge's Jake Bell and a parody of The New Yorker that cracked me up for about two minutes.
More importantly--at least for me--is the fact that you can flip to page 68 and read two all-new pages of ISB-approved Chris Sims comedy. Like last month, it's a roundup of a handful of genre pictures, but instead of Christmas movies, I grit my teeth through eight romantic comedies and manage to only drop the f-bomb once.
And if you can't see the comedic potential of taking a guy known primarily for reviewing comics where people get kicked in the face a lot and getting him to review My Best Friend's Wedding and Failure to Launch, then check your webshooters at the door, buster.
So go buy it! And now, if you'll excuse me, that new Castlevania ain't gonna play itself.
