    I guess you could say I’m enjoying this comic yet AGAIN. (ed note: ‘again’ is a word found in the title of this comic)

    I don’t care. Superman stepping on Brainiac’s face is still awesome.

    Sinestro Corps War was still one of my favorite comics of all time

    Thomas – The face-stepping is indeed very awesome. It’s the quip he said while doing it that we’re bringing up. Our point is if Johns used this “device” sparingly it would be awesome, but when you read as many of his comics as Curt and I do, you start to notice that he uses it so often it gets funny. Making this comic I found way too many examples to use. Often there were multiple examples of this in a single issue.

    Nothingman – It’s one of our favorites too.* *= see my comment to Thomas

    Also, just for the record, “KABOOM BITCH HERE I AM!” is now my battle cry.

    I just started reading yesterday and it was so good I went through the whole archives. Pure awesome. You guys got yourself a fan.
    Also, am I the only one who hears the CSI: Miami theme after reading “his hour- is up.” ?

    My shit’s in your inbox, Curt. Twice.

    Is “KABOOM BITCH HERE I AM!” actually in a comic? I want to read that.

    I see your points, but I still like Johns. He got me to like Hal Jordan and the JSA.

    I see your points, but I still like Johns. He got me to like Hal Jordan and the JSA.

    Curt and Chris also like Johns’s comics. They mention that RIGHT THERE.

    Exactly. We’re not even saying it’s bad, we’re just saying it’s funny.

  14. aprilsteeleisreal

    at least we didn’t have to look at too much of chris’ art in this one.

    April – Damn, dude. If I didn’t like MST3K quotes so much you’d be dead as hell.

    PeterV – Thanks a lot, man. We are basically always in the market for new fans, so welcome aboard. Feel free to click that link over there on the right and buy our book and re-read a bunch of stuff you read for free in the archives as well as a bunch of stuff that isn’t available in the archives or anywhere else.

    Or just tell some friends about us.

    Or both.

    Or neither.

    Both is really the best option.

    Joey – If Geoff Johns was smart (and he’s rich, so he must be), he’d have Hourman saying that on the cover of JSA next month just to stick it to us. I would get a tattoo that says “Geoff Johns Rules!” if he did that.

    [Reply]

  19. Larry Koopa

    I’m just happy I’m not the only ghosthead here.

    [Reply]

  20. Joey

    I would join you in that tattoo! And it would have to be two lines. The first is, of course, “KABOOM BITCH HERE I AM!” I just wanted to say that again. Fuck, I should make a gif for that.

    [Reply]

  21. Nathan

    Johns doesn’t write JSA anymore, Willingham does.

    and I’m pretty sure that name is too long to reasonably get tattoed, it would spill into your other body parts.

    “Exactly. We’re not even saying it’s bad, we’re just saying it’s funny.”

    Agreed, but I can totally see this being used as a flag for the “Johns sucks and needs to be raped in hell or whatever” camp

    also nice Hourman sketch dude

    [Reply]

  23. chrishaley

    Nathan – Yeah, I know he doesn’t write JSA anymore, but I’m hoping he’ll exert his DC big shot authority and make it happen anyway.

    [Reply]

  24. chrishaley

    Nathan – Also, thanks!

    [Reply]

  25. vanessa

    Once again, I will tattoo that. Joey, am I off base in saying that it should that be incorporated into the Flash Gordon/Freddy Mercury piece?

    [Reply]

  26. tommy

    I love your strip,
    BUT SIRS… I must protest, and challenge you to a duel..
    Geoff Johnns is a Golden God of writing Comics… I mean c’mon he made Green Lantern Bad Assed ! (again?) i don’t know if he was bad assed before, cause I didn’t rea dit before Johns, same with JSA…
    Match POINT BITCHES!

    p.s. Love your strip

    [Reply]

  27. Joey

    Perhaps Johns should appear between the Mercury-Gordon and the Mercury-Ming and shout “KABOOM” etc. That could be EPIC.

    [Reply]

  28. Joey

    Also, did you ever finish drawing that, Chris?

    [Reply]

  29. Brian

    @tommy

    Dude, they freakin’ love Johns. It’s all done out of love.

    The Loeb strips come from some other place entirely. Someplace dark, angry, and uncomfortable. Like the back of a Volkswagen.

  30. Nathan

    Chris – Willingham isn’t the kind of guy to listen to executives, guy blew up on Whedon.

    Also does that pic from the new BN Flash count? I mean it’s half a page.

    I still have an aol account. I never look it. But I still remember Curtis Octave Franklin. I am still waiting for you to be famous.

    never could find the trip line. Much love though. It made me.

    I’ve been making do with Wikipedia summaries of comics as an alternative to buying them for longer than I would like. Would you mind telling me what all of the “catchphrases” depicted in the last panel are, and who says them?

    [Reply]

  34. chrishaley

    Kadin – I was thinking of starting a blog that is nothing but Geoff Johns one-liners. If I do, we’ll post a link.

  35. Alchemy

    And that’s why he is the best Flash’s writer ever!!! His rogues are awesome!!!!

    I know this is old and late. I’m the guy who comments on dead comment threads. Just started reading this comic (got linked from 4thletter) and it’s great. Anyway…

    “Would you believe we actually like Geoff Johns?” – No, not at all. There are plenty of creators who I love in every entertainment medium who have ticks that they use at least from time to time and even though I’m aware, I love them anyway. Nothing wrong with that.

    For example, look at the Transformers fandom’s attitude towards Simon Furman. They have a whole list of “Furmanisms”, tropes and dialogue he uses all the time. While they’re very aware of this fact and spotting them has become something like a drinking game, they still love him for it.

    Lugh – Wait, so you don’t believe we actually like Geoff Johns?
