Cell Phone

Small scratches on the corner and around the camera lens. None on the lens itself.

Small scratches on the corner.

These are the major scratches on the phone.

Notice the scratch on the upper left. Its outside the viewing area. Also, small scratches on the top right.

No major scratches on the main display. Notice the cover is gone for the screw on the upper left.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome Back!

Wow, I guess "No Time For Comics" really means "No Time For Blogging About Comics," because I still read them like crazy, in a little closet while my wife sleeps.

Invincible is still great.
Blue Beetle keeps getting better.
Uncanny X-Men is ramping up with nice artwork, while
X-Men's Ramos cheapens the industry.
Dynamo Five? More like...Dynamo JIVE!
Star Trek Season Four isn't anything new.
Morrison's Batman is kicking butt.

Please stay tuned.

X-Factor #21

Jaime's jus' eatin' him up some good ol' cookies n' milk. This issue starts a new four-part story line: The Isolationist, which we should all presume is this electrified red pupil zombie guy, but there's much more. We've got more of a lead-up to The Isolationist - he's in maybe a handful of pages. Before the whole X-Cell fiasco, things happened that are now being... not so much resolved, but... revisited. Good character-driven, signature Peter David stuff.

X-Factor is also taking on a new case which - also in classic PAD style - hits close to home, with a transparent mutant-bashing-as-a-racism-metaphor angle.

Guido gets a visit from an old friend in the form of Val Cooper. This scene is pretty good for Strong Guy fans; we get a nod to these characters' history together.

--as an aside, PAD's original X-Factor run (vol.1 #70-89) is what made me a fan and got me to start following his work. and of course his work on Spyboy only solidified that. haven't heard of Spyboy? GEEZ! Ask your local comic shop. --

This is a good issue, Raimondi is back as artist, so the panels are easier to follow. Mr. Peter David did not disappoint.

Nine minutes.

X-Factor #20

X-Cell conclusion.

You know, maybe I should go back and reread this storyline all at once, because I didn't get any of it. At some points it went too fast to keep up with, and others were so confusing that I didn't know what was going on.

Maybe it was the artwork, considering the last few issues with Khoi Pham doing pencils made me cry tears of blood.

I liked the part where Pietro describes Layla Miller and is like, "this is the girl that knows stuff" and Layla's all like, "don't screw with my catchphrase, jerk!" and then he's like, "whoah, watch it, little girl, or I'll punch you in the face."

And he does.*

I'm ready for a new storyline and a new artist. I have faith that Peter David can come up with some good stories.

Six minutes.

*not an actual occurence.
