Blinded by the light.
I really hope that this person ordered McNuggets. WHAT THEN HAMBURGLAR? WHAT THEN???
Okay, someone tell me where the hell this is from. Or even just what is happening? His arms are in these super futuristic shackles but there’s hay on the ground. How does this even happen? Is there a horse being tortured off panel? Did they convert a barn into a spaceship.
Or was this Confessor guys like, “I am going to burn the truth out of you! You will beg for mercy BUT FIND NONE! But first, this ground is really cold so can we get some hay in here. He could catch cold or something guys, use your heads.”
Scrooge McDuck labored and lost his mind in a Minecraft world years before you did.
#5. Donald Duck Discovered Minecraft
Minecraft…(for those of you who don’t have 1,000 spare hours to sacrifice) is an indie game that blew up for almost inexplicable reasons in 2011. The main purposes of the game are survival, exploration, and building things out of cubes (in a world made out of cubes and as a character who is, shockingly, made out of pure anger).
It was a pretty unique idea for a game, purposely rendered in low-quality graphics, giving the virtual world a very original feel (especially for a game in 2011). And they would have really been on to something different and new if only Donald Duck hadn’t done it all first back in 1949.
I wrote words, arranged in a humorous and appealing way, on the topic of comic book inventions. I hope you all enjoy! Cheerio!
(Seriously, this is my new article. Check it out for the lulz and I don’t know, pasta? There could be pasta, sure.)
I was so confused by Jessica Rabbit as a child and not in any kind of sexual awakening way, but because I couldn’t understand why her character’s backstory wasn’t explained more as I thought she was a trans-species cartoon character.
Because the last name of every single character in cartoon universes is what species they are. Mickey is a mouse, Bugs is a bunny, Tweety is a bird, Yogi is a bear, etc. so when Jessica Rabbit first comes on screen, both Bob Hoskins and myself are super confused to see an incredibly sexy human woman, instead of a rabbit as her name suggests. So I thought for most of my childhood that Jessica was a trans-species character who had been born a rabbit, got a species change operation and was now living as a human cartoon character but had kept her original name and had this amazing husband who loved and supported her through these changes and decisions. And I thought that was great and wanted to learn more about her and was confused that they would skim over cool plot details like that.
And then I realized that she just changed her last name when she married Roger Rabbit and was pretty disappointed.

Q: Who is or was the best Robin? What is the Best Robin moment in Comic Book History? — @danceformyhorse
A: Here’s a little tidbit that probably won’t shock anybody: I think about the Robins a lot. When you spend around 60% of your waking hours thinking about Batman, it’s sort of inevitable that you’ll eventually get around to his sidekicks, and there’s a lot there to think about. There are a ton of complexities and little bits of subtext with what they bring out of Batman, but in this case, the answer strikes me as a pretty obvious one.
The best Robin is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Tim Drake. Deal with it, haters.
Don’t get me wrong: It’s not that I don’t like the other Robins at all. I think they’re all really great characters who bring something interesting to the larger mythology of Batman, and I’d even go so far as to say that they’re all necessary for building the version of Batman that we have now. That said, when you look at each of those characters and how they function in their role as Batman’s sidekick — or, to be a little less dismissive, his partner in crime-fighting — Tim’s rank at the top becomes pretty self-evident.
For one thing, he’s the only one of the Robins who’s not, on some level, in it for themselves. All of the others are motivated by very personal reasons. Dick Grayson essentially has the same defining tragedy that Bruce Wayne does, in that he sees his parents murdered in front of him. The only real difference is that it happens in Haley’s Circus instead of Crime Alley, and even that’s really just a convenient reason for him to already have the gymnastic ability to swing around Gotham City without having to go tromping around the world for 20 years like Bruce did. He’s ready to go from the moment he’s introduced, complete with the same sort of training and, more importantly, the same sort of motivation that Batman himself has.
I’ve always liked Chris Sims. Dude knows what he’s talking about.
This weekend I celebrate a great man, who loved all of humanity, who shared himself fully with his 12 followers, showing them the path to righteousness, who forgave us our sins, died and was risen.
New episode tomorrow night!
I have a theory that the front facing camera on phones is always lower quality than the real camera as a form of punishment for people taking selfies.
