Nextwave

These days it really seems like there's not much going on in the world of super hero comics that I really enjoy. But one of the truly exceptional exceptions is Nextwave: Agents of Hate, a recently-wrapped series that mixes equal parts hilarious satire and insane action sequences. Written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by the incredible Stuart Immonen, it's a totally overwhelming experience that defies comparison. The closest spiritual kin I can think of is maybe something like Dr. McNinja, but still, you really have to see it for yourself to get what it's all about.

Fortunately, you can do just that... the first several pages are available to read free, right here on the internet! Check it out. It'll kick your butt.

A challenger emerges

Sonic in Smash Bros!

I am really surprised. I was so sure that Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, with its perfect 50/50 split of the title, cast, and even official artwork, was a sign that the companies' respective legal departments would never accept anything less than perfect equal billing for any crossover game. (Kind of like how Mickey and Bugs Bunny were required to have identical amounts of screentime and dialogue in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.)

But clearly I was wrong! Sonic is going to be one of the many playable Smash Bros. fighters after all. And after seeing how well Nintendo has handled Snake's inclusion, heck... they're almost certain to treat Sonic with more care than Sonic Team has been lately.

Turn up the stars

Happy Thanksgiving, my fellow-Canadians! Be sure to do something to make your day off memorable. You'll need those memories to look back on when you're stuck at work or school during the American thanksgiving!

Don't forget... Sam and Fuzzy has a fancy new message board that is just crying out for your participation. (Or maybe it's just crying, period. I know many other online forums that often have that effect on me.)
