April Fool’s round-up: it’s hard to make anything outrageous any more

burrito

See I tolja, it’s hard to be funny about this stuff any more with satirical sites the Onion and Clickhole, let alone ACTUAL sites like Daily Caller, Upworthy and thenTaboola promising 10 celebrity dogs who have aged badly at the end of everything we read on the ‘Net. A few people tried. io9 of all places had the old DC, Marvel Announce Merger story, albeit with some nice characterization:

Review: crime makes a strange exit to Eden in Postal #1

Strange small towns commanded by dogmatic despots have long been a staple of post-apocalyptic fare like The Walking Dead. So when Postal # 1 opens on a church sermon delivered by a preacher waving a gun at a man who is bound at the foot of the altar, it seems a familiar scenario.

Despite their massive popularity, many die-hard fans of the comic books feel that the films failed to accurately depict their favourite Marvel characters […]

Unassuming Barber Shop: Batman Country, Part Two

In case you missed the first portion of this special two-parter, it was revealed that Batman has conquered America and has established his black Bat-capital in a cave in Branson, Missouri.

That is not entirely true, but I do hope something of the story of the Bald Knobbers (cringey name aside) rang true for Batman fans. The vigilante story is old and real in America.

Barcon, that starts with ‘B’ and that rhymes with ‘T’ and that stands for trouble

Party-2

We’re off to HeroesCon in Charlotte later today and one of the many pleasures of that show is its relaxing and expansive Barcon; as opposed to other conventions where people scatter to their various drinking holes, pretty much everyone at HeroesCon stays in the same bar, and it’s a great place to catch up with folks and maybe lay the foundation for future work.
