Spooktoberfest Special: Chris vs. Tarot on ComicsAlliance

 

 

Chris Sims?! Writing about Tarot?! Believe it!

Yes, last week saw the release of the BroadSword Comics Falll 2009 promotional video, so today on ComicsAlliance, I provide minute-by-minute commentary for the announcements concerning everyone’s favorite witchity empowerment figure, who mysteriously can’t get through a swordfight to the death without becoming aroused by her far more skilled male counterpart.

Not to spoil it for anyone, but the biggest item in the video is the news that Balent is teaming up with Diamond select toys to bring Tarot into a third mind-boggling dimension, and I’ll be honest: The question here is not if I’m going to buy it, but how many.

So enjoy, and look for our annual delve into the Tarot archives later this month as Spooktoberfest rolls on!

  1. My primary thought is: Holly GoLightly scares the hell out of me.

    My secondary thoughts are all attempting to grapple with all of this horrible new information on the nature of reality.

  2. I guarantee you, man, that you’ve already seen worse than what Diamond Select would do with Tarot in the Japanese import pages of Previews. How come you never do that anymore, Sims? You should do that shit again.

  3. And you chose a picture of the sculpture with just the word “Come” in it. Way to keep it classy, Chris.

  4. I remember the days when Chris not only went through Previews for us but provided actual content on this blog and not just links to elsewhere.

  5. Oh and by the way, how dare you decide what and what not to put on your own website. For shame, comic blogger, for shame.

    Seriously, thanks for the laughs. And I’m just talking about the comments section, natch!

    Well golly, Julius, I’m sorry that I added the horribly exhausting task of clicking your mouse button again to what I’m sure is a jam-packed morning of excitement. Maybe you should find a quiet place and just cry your little eyes out over it. We won’t judge you.

  7. But Chris-

    What about mouse clicking related injuries? What if that one click breaks a bone in their forefinger or…something? Are you really asking folks to take that risk?!

  8. I met Holly at SDCC a few years ago, and she was a bit more “intense” in person than I thought she’d be.

    Then again, this is someone who was married dressed as Slave Leia while her husband was dressed as Darth Vader.

  9. Chris, in that article… that picture of the red-headed chick and Darth Vader… is that Balent in the Darth Vader suit? Because I need to seriously re-examine my own life if it is.

  10. Wait, I’ve just continued reading the article. I am giving up all my worldly possessions and will travel to wherever Balent is to learn from him and be guided by his wisdom.

  11. My primary thought is: Holly GoLightly scares the hell out of me.

    I can’t be the only who finds Holly hot, right? Right?!

  12. She’s definitely hot, I was just saying that she was different in person from what I expected. I’m not even really sure what I expected.

  13. Recently, Tarot gained an element of true personal horror for me. Going through some twenty year old news-clippings from the local paper, I found an article about a young artist the next town over from me, who had just entered the field by self-published a horror series called “From the Darkness;” take two guesses who that artist was. Somehow I’ve got to get the article online, since it has so many presciently ironic statements.

  14. And you chose a picture of the sculpture with just the word “Come” in it. Way to keep it classy, Chris.

    That was actually Laura’s addition to the article, but I wish I’d done it. Cracked me right up.

  15. Fuck, I’m sorry. I didn’t know we weren’t allowed to use our mouths for anything other than blowing Sims around this joint!

  16. Fuck, I’m sorry. I didn’t know we weren’t allowed to use our mouths for anything other than blowing Sims around this joint!

    You use your mouth to type?
    No wonder Chris not blogging what you want him to blog angers you so, if you’re going to that much trouble to leave an asshole comment.

  17. I’d laugh, applaud you or add to the discussion Re: the ludicrous haters in this Comments Section . . . but the inarguable personal and professional success of Jim Balent has caused me to fall into a bleak, contemplative depression about my life choices.

    If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go sit in a corner, eat a gallon of Mint Moose Tracks and wonder if I should start writing about women with giant spikes for nipples, in lieu of my genuine hopes and dreams.

  18. The reason I go by “Andrew” and not “Andy” was because I knew too many embarrassments who went by the latter.

    I may have to rethink this now.

  19. I will punch the continuity until Sims’ blog is back on Blogger and he posts nowhere else.
