Long-time ISB readers might have noticed that for 2009, I finally gave up on Chris vs. Previews, my long-running roundup of the comic shop’s catalog. A couple of people have even gone so far as to ask why, and it really just comes down to the fact that I suddenly remembered that I totally hated writing those things every month.
Still, there are some things that just can’t pass without comment, so tonight, I’m bringing CvP out of retirement for this:
P. 138 – Dead @ 17: Afterbirth:
Uh, yeah, hey Josh Howard, are you aware that your comic is called Dead @ 17: Afterbirth? Because if you’re not, that’s probably something you should be aware of, and if you are, that brings up a whole new set of problems. I mean, sure, coming up with a title isn’t always easy, and “Afterbirth” might’ve seemed like a good idea at the time, but I can assure you that the prospect of going into a store and saying “Hey, you guys got Afterbirth yet?” isn’t something I’d be looking forward to, no matter how well last summer’s Hack/Slash: Placenta sold.
Just a heads-up.
