What the inside of Bryan Singer's head looks like

Here, have a picture of Superman making out with Jesus.


I am lazy, He is not.

A belated congrats to Mr Kendall of Not Blog X, one of my favorite comic sites ever. He set out to review nearly ever X-Men related comic published in the 90s, and he did it. An impressive feat, and i envy his mad blog-fu.

In other news, SIB has gone stagnant of late. Sorry. It's been a combination of laziness and busyness. The All Star articles are still coming, it's just all the silver age annotations are much more in depth than i initially realized. But it'll be neat, I promise.

In the mean time, look for my new Not Blog X inspired project, Not Spawn X, wherein I review only the bad issues of Spawn, all of them!*

*Not really.

Confessions of a Superhero

CONFESSIONS OF A SUPERHERO is a feature length documentary that chronicles the lives of three mortal men and one woman who make their living working as superhero characters on Hollywood Boulevard.  This deeply personal look into their daily routines reveals their hardships and triumphs as they pursue and achieve their own kind of fame.  The Hulk sold his Super Nintendo for a bus ticket to LA; Wonder Woman was a mid-western homecoming queen; Batman struggles with his anger, while Superman’s psyche is consumed by the Man of Steel.  Although the Walk of Fame is right beneath their feet, their own paths to stardom prove to be long, hard climbs.

The complete film, courtesy of Hulu:

These people are fascinating. Wonder Woman and Hulk seem relatively normal, even if they don't always make the greatest choices but man, violent compulsive liar Batman and obsessive Superman, they lead lives in a world only vaguely resembling our own.
