  1. Hey Chris,

    Apropos of nothing, the other night I was watching the Justice League Unlimited episode where GL, Supergirl, Stargirl & Stripesy discover the hidden world of Skartaris and team up with Warlord to fight the evil wizard Deimos, his horde of barbarians, and their giant, laser-totin’ dinosaurs.

    At one point, a dinosaur takes a bite out of Stripesy’s robotic armor. My girlfriend turns to me and says, “You know I appreciate the art, but I just can’t get into the stories. Watching a dinosaur kill a robot does nothing for me.”

    Instantly, I knew somewhere across the city of Columbia, Chris Sims started crying, and he didn’t know why, so I said, “You know, for a lot of people, watching a dinosaur kill a robot is the ONLY reason animation was invented.”

  2. I don’t usually offer relationship advice here on the ISB (as I tend to leave that sort of thing to Road Rage Venom), but if your girlfriend doesn’t like robots fighting dinosaurs, then it might be time to seriously re-examine your relationship.

  3. Seriously, Ronnie? That chair weighs like 5 pounds. Pick it up and go all Mick Foley on the bad guys, for cryin’ out loud.

  4. Despite the obvious lack of robots and dinosaurs (and ninjas) that panel is teh awesome.

  5. Better yet, Archie should to choose between Betty and Zantanna. And no offense to Betty, but I think it’s pretty clear what the right choice is there.

  6. She seriously needs to get the Hulk over there. He’d take care of the satanic, stupid chair.

  7. Ninjas wear black, the background is white.
    Case closed.

  8. Between this and your Friday post, I think you know FAR too much about what goes on in my bedroom.
