The weirdest thing happened to members of The Stately Beat Manor yesterday. None other than Bessie the Hellcow was seen loitering our gated off community. We’re not heartless, so we decided to let Bessie in for the day (more like a week). Now relieved of her Earthly crusade to seek vengeance upon Dracula, she has gained a completely new state of mind after kinda (sorta) dying at hands of Howard the Duck. We attempted to further her new mindset by teaching her how to read…comic books of course! Only a few Beat Staffers even have the capacity to read books with words (is that even still a thing?). Unlike Floyd Belko (A.K.A. Arm-Fall-Off-Boy) from last week, Bessie immediately grew a taste for exploring the world of Valiant Comics. Since there are few titles that are all so easily accessible, Bessie was able to read the entirety of Valiant’s 2012 catalogue after a couple of all night binging sessions. We thought it was unhealthy, but proceeded in joining her late into the evening. After diving headfirst into exploring the wild and wonderful world of comics, here’s what she and the rest of the Beat Staff had to say for the week of 5/6/15.
