Pointless Question #52

What is with kids today, putting lots of product in their hair, carrying around swords heavier than they are, and running off to save the world?

Well, the anime hair thing actually has a historical equivalent in the hairstyles popular in northern Europe during the Bronze and Iron Ages - lots of limewash and animal fat.

Sorry, that's not a very stupid answer, is it?

Don't worry... if it ever gets too bad, stuff like the sword length will get edited down in the next edition.

(Mabus... I'm not sure anybody takes you seriously anymore. Ever.)

Yeah, but then they'll add a gun to the sword and all sorts of new craziness will ensue.

(Man, Eragon sounds awesome now.)

That's the second-biggest bayonet I've ever heard of.

You mean like this?

Which reminds me... BD, you're a 'scaper, right? You getting the comics?

Bronze Dog said...

Yeah, watching part 2 of the Peacekeeper Wars on my DVR right now. Never got beyond the first part before since the recorder missed it last time.

Haven't touched the comics.

Awww, Mabus, you never visit my site! I'm disappointed.

BD: Okay then, no spoilers. ;) Worth getting if you're hardcore, but definitely not before you finish PK Wars. (Be warned, they're coming out in stupid small print runs, and the first two issues have already gone to their third reprint, so either pay silly money or wait for the trade paperback.)

I will say that they read like real Farscape. The art's nothing special, but it's not bad. Me, I'd make do with 6th generation photocopies of stick figure comics as long as it's proper Farscape.
