The Bispectacult - Episode 5 - In this issue...BEER!
And we are BACK! Pre-finals, finals and finally GRADUATION put a kink in our already lax schedule, but we've managed to pick ourselves off the floor (well, Ivan and Kid-Chris have, Dafna enjoyed her stay and decided to remain) and back onto the interwebs. This week's issue is a little behind, we mostly cover comics from 6/20 and, of course, the soon to be classic film: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Dafna bitches, Ivan giggles and Kid-Chris reveals himself to be the geekiest princess of them all. Also, there is drinking, finally. The recording of our Top Trades got violated terribly in the process, so that section is missing from this episode. Don't worry, you didn't miss much -mainly Dafna and Kid-Chris making Ivan feel left out with their matching "Fuck Communism" lighters.
Top Picks for June 20, 2007:
Kid Chris - Justice League #10, Incredible Hulk #107, Flash #13
Dafna - Ex Machina #29, Checkmate #15, Ultimate Spider-Man #110
Kid Chris Preacher: Volume 1
Dafna Plain Janes
Fanfilm Pick(s) of the Week:
Secret Wars Re-Creation Society
News was a little scattered this week as a lot of it came up while reviewing our comics or getting our drink on. Of course we talked about boobs -Dafna has a fixation- and the staggering sociological implications of reducing Power Girl's significant rack. Whenever Kid-Chris even attempts to admit he sort of liked Flash #13, Dafna continuously interrupts with incredibly valid point of "but it's not fair!" We talk about the difference between Marvel and DC, the types of characters they have and the ones that tend to be successful. We don't use the exact words (since we weren't in...a wordy state), but "fanboy/girl entitlement" is, essentially, discussed. Zombie Mary Jane, is brought up, and Dafna is NOT mortally offended...evil alternate universe Dafna has arrived? She did have a pretty fantastic goatee that day -hrmmm.
Power Girl gets a breast reduction? Is it enough for anyone to notice or care?
Mary Jane Zombie and her lopsided tit!
Sue Storm is sexy...oh, and smart too...no, really - covers my problem with the characterization of Sue Storm in the movie, which really had nothing to do with Jessica Alba at all.
