Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking

If you missed all the hullabaloo, this is what we’re talking about.

Sorry for all the crazy scheduling, LBFA HQ has been a little hectic with things going on behind the scenes.
Secret things.

It’s not up at the moment, but we’re told this new big thing we did for Comics Alliance should be up sometime today, so just go there and keep hitting refresh and sending angry emails until it shows up.

Thanks to everyone who sent us fanart, and if you have some of your own you’d like to contribute, please send it to us!

    More comics with Chris screaming in wide-eyed horror, please.

    I’m sure I don’t know what you’re talking about but when I went to the link to find out, it was too long for me and my short attention span. I do like the last panel very much. Keep up the great work! TM&TB

    i’m replacing “Kurt Busiek” with “Darwyn Cooke” and “S.H.I.E.L.D.” with “lesbians” and getting a similar comic

    I know I say this about like every other thing you’ve drawn, but freaked out Chris may be the best thing you’ve ever drawn.


  5. Euge

    everyone lauding freaked out Chris is undevaluing teary-eyed Curt, the true sleeper characterization.


  6. Jordjevic

    Freaked-out Chris is great and all but I think panel 3 Chris should go to the Captain Marvel auditions sometime. He might inch out Patrick Warburton.


  7. chrishaley

    It’s worth mentioning that I think Curt and I both agree with most of what Kurt Busiek was saying.

    @BoBrasher – I think there’s more to what Darwyn was saying than the simplistic “he hates lesbians” it’s been internetted down to..


  8. chrishaley

    @Dylan – We can’t go to the screaming in horror well too often.. just like we can’t go to the pee-hole well often enough.


  9. lynn

    ahahaha! i sill love that pee-hole one. also, for me it’s a toss up between two very specific things: Chris’s bubble-gum tongue floating in the middle of his mouth in panel 4 or the adorable little ducks in teary curt’s eyes. also, ftw?! curt is smoking?

    This may be weird, but when the conversation turned to the idea of “straw man” reasoning I thought for some reason that we might be getting a cameo appearance of the freaky straw Sue Dibney from 52. I also thoroughly enjoyed freaked-out-Chris.


  11. Brad Brasfield

    S.H.I.E.L.D. is like reading an acid trip that doesn’t make sense, but I still enjoy it for some reason.

    Can’t quite put my finger on why, but this is one of the best-looking comics I’ve seen in a while. Maybe it’s the coloring? Very crisp!


  12. Markus Seaberry

    Nice strip, guys. Straw-Bot? Awesome.


  13. bobrasher

    yea Chris, i know there’s more than that. and there’s more to what Busiek was saying as well. hence the similar comic.
    anyway back to Superman: Birthright


  14. Kurt Busiek is Right « Trouble Thinking

    [...] and is probably most well known for his (absolutely fucking excellent) series Astro City. Recently, a post Busiek wrote on a private message board was “accidentally” made public. The gist? The vast majority of comics currently being produced by Marvel and DC are mediocre to [...]

    How can you not like S.H.I.E.L.D.??? It’s so freaking awesome, and so is Hickman’s run on FF…you crazy Busiek!
