Circles Are Round

When any young comics reading male first embarks on a relationship with a young woman, the task of legitimizing his passion rests squarely on the shoulders of that first telling tome given to the lady as a way of saying, “See, they’re not all about women drawn like men with watermelons fixed to their chest!”

I gave a girl the first arc of Kyle Rayner’s Green Lantern and I think she got the wrong message.

    There is a word to describe Chris’s stance in the first panel.

    That word is “Sassy.”

    I’ve always seen Curt as some what of an over dresser…this solidifies it.

    reminds me of the first time “behind the green door” was described to me.

    Atticus – Of Lost Girls? I think you’ll have to track down Mr. Moore somewhere on the Astral plane for that one. Talking to Dr. Strange might be a good place to start.

    Luckily, I don’t have to worry about this. Gay guys have a universal bond of a fondness for pornography and manicures. That pretty much gets us through to the casual sex. It’s a good system!

    Of course, now I’m past that and actually with someone and will have to learn to sort of pretend to enjoy Alabama football and James Taylor. I’d prefer comics.

    WAIT A SECOND AND SHUT UP; I’ve actually seen that book! It has boobies on the inside! This is the first actual inside-ish comic-y joke I’ve gotten! I feel clammy and my blood pressure just went up! Yay!

    I lent my girlfriend Watchmen, with pictures of butterflies and flowers pasted over the dogs Rorschach killed, because she didn’t like it when dogs died. She decided after the first chapter it wasn’t for her, so I tried Black Hole instead and she really took to that. I think if I steer clear of super heroes, she’ll be okay.
