    And congratulations Ajax_X!

    Congratulations to Ajax_X for a marvelous, fantastic cover which managed to catch people's eyes. After all, the eyes had it.

    The captain is totally impressed with the theme this week. The circle is a deceptively simple shape. As those of us who didn't sleep through plane geometry remember, a circle is the coplanar set of points equidistant from a single point, called the center. It's a very tough shape to draw correctly free hand, but using help, it can be a powerful part of visual art. I am now seriously considering delving into Dante's Divine Comedy. Not sure how many comic book adaptations there are, but this sounds like something P Craig Russell would fit well into doing. Or the captain could just read the actual graphic free original. Is the captain rambling again? "No", you respond, "'again' implies you stopped at some point and restarted. You are rambling STILL"
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

What if you were in the same room as someone older who saw it in a totally different light, laugh out loud. No way to rewind it, or even a real thought you might not ever see this performance ever again. That shit is hilarious.

    Not as trippy, or in the say mushroom filled way at least but I remember being a kid and seeing Prince's When Doves Cry for the first time. Something about being a certain age and peeping a musical performance that kind of soft reboots you in way nothing else had before. Thought it was cute anyway.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    Ah. Fair enough. I would've thought there'd be more. Or barring her, Banshee and/or Siryn would work.

    Thank you very much to Kai "the Spy" for the lovely reciprocal vote! ^_^

    Congrats Ajax_X! Had I remembered that cover I would have posted it myself. Funnily, I remember Spinerette the most from this humorous breaking the 4th wall spread from Byrne in Sensational She-Hulk #5.

    And to continue the She-Hulk conversation…

    I was considering posting this Greg Horn homage but thought, not enough circles. Ah well.
