Snoopy Magneto

Nuff said.

Batman v Angelus.

Freaking hysterical.

EDIT: Okay, this is way more funnier if you're a comic fan to be fair, though I really should have assumed the Angel fans would also have been interested. The actual comic is called Blood of the Demon, and is based around the Jack kirby created character Etrigan the Demon. Normally Etrigan is buried deep within a human host named Jason Blood, but can be set free whenever needed. Parallels between Angel and Angelus can be drawn here.

From the sound of the review, the writer/artist John Byrne has certainly taken the basic inspiration of previous issues of The Demon and mapped everything across to correspond to the Buffyverse. Which, when you consider his previous stands against people taking inspiration from outside comics, is incredibly hypocritical and further evidence that Byrne's losing it.

This is of course the same John Byrne who recently caused quite a stink over the use of the word "nigger".

And feel lucky you missed his (in)famous Christopher Reeve and Jessica Alba rants.

Coming attractions...

Yes, I have been tagged by spankerella to do the films/dvds meme, so that'll probably turn up tonight or tomorrow.

Plus, that WIP meme count alternatively calls me and horrifies me, but after seeing mynuet's count of 35, I feel a lot better. That'll turn up soon as well.

But I really wanted to mention that I've edited my last post to explain a lot more background on the whole John Byrne Batman v Angelus thing. Short version - Byrne's turning into a loon these days. Really is a case of separating the artist from their work here.

And speaking of comics, empressvesica? You do know the new Fables is out this week?
