Imponderable #96: The NFL vs. Justin Bieber

Yes, you read that correctly.


So what’s the Vegas line on this?

The most amazing thing about this story is that for once it is not the football player in trouble for speeding or doing drugs. Frankly, take out “Justin Bieber” and insert the name of almost any Dallas Cowboy and you have  story you’ve read a million times before. Of course, the fact that it really is Justin Bieber is the icing on the cake. Seriously, let Bieber come across Dez Bryant in a dark alley. Then we’ll see if Bieber has an inch of clear, unbruised skin left to get one more of his god-awful tattoos.



Were those tattoos copied out of a children's book? The who tattooed the cover of "Where the Wild Things Are" on his ass is cooler.

Personally, I’m hoping he hooks up with Amanda Bynes and let the fun begin.

The Saturday Comics: 5 Odd Incredible Hulk Covers

26 Jan

January 26, 2013


I’ve an odd bunch of covers for you this week. It isn’t the artwork, which in some cases is quite good. It is the subject matter. Comic covers are supposed to bring in readers. They should catch the eye and intrigue the mind. I’ve picked five Hulk covers that I feel would do nothing to make a casual fan pick up the issue. In fact, if I was thinking of dropping the title, these covers might be enough to make me not buy the title again. I see no way these covers could possibly have increased sales. Other than the last, I present these in no particular order.


“How nice, a Norman Rockwell homage.” Pass.


“Oh, I hope those eggs don’t crack.” The Hulk is not the focus of this cover. In fact, you have to look closely to see him. I wonder how many fans scanned the racks for The Hulk and then asked the guy behind the counter why The Hulk didn’t come in this week. Even the logo blends in too easily. This cover simply makes the comic too easy to miss.


“Marvel Kids is back?” Pass


“So what is this book about now?” The Hulk (the book, as well as the character) went through so many changes in such a short period that readers could be forgiven if they actually believed that this was a Hulk version of Where The Wild Things Are.


“Um, the Hulk is fighting a clown????” ‘Nuff said.
