#So These Are Comic Books

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (6.4.14) – Bucky & Steve (Original) Sinning In The Bathroom

Welcome to this fucking jam!

What’s up, good cretins? It’s Wednesday! The second best day of the week! Only being trumped by Thorsday, where myself and several other chaps dress up like The Odinson and have Thorgasms under the Slurpee machine at 7-Eleven. Mjölnir goes places, man! But what would Thorsday be, without Comic Book Day? Nothing! For I shant have such urges if it were not for the weekly arrival of the funny books. They’ve shaped me, my psyche, and the floor of convenience stores across the nation in ways we can only theorize about. This week in funny books sees People Totally Sinning, a Return to the Trees, Miles Morales’ posthumous idol, and more. Strap-in and check out the books I’m picking up, and then hit the comments selection with your own choice cuts.

Buy These Flippin' Comics!

It’s Thursday, and I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking “Why the hell is there a BTFC today, Johnny?  I’ve already been to the shop/ipad/whathaveyou and got my comics – why am I even reading this?”  Here’s what I’m thinking:  Maybe you missed something.  Maybe something dropped off your radar.  I don’t know.  Intros are hard to do.  Buy these flippin comics and I PROMISE you once read you will transform into a giant, dancing, Omega-Level robot.  And just like most Omega-Level robots, you’ll do less monster-fighting and more sitting on your couch scratching your nethers and scrolling through tumblr.  God Bless America.

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (5.07.14) Spider-Man and the Rebirth of Cool

Ultimate Spider-Man

Welcome back, friends!  This week we keep it short, sweet, and to the very simple point:  buy these few flippin comics and the rest of your week goes by smoothly and without trouble.  Your grades will improve, perhaps a promotion at work, your sex life becomes blog-worthy, and strangers stop you to comment on your newfound swagger.  You’ll feel like a new person, and for just the price of a few funnybooks.  Sound too good to be true?  Maybe so, but necessity is the mother of reinvention, and like the books recommended this week prove, sometimes looking at old stories in a new way can turn the stagnant into the vibrant, and the once-lame into the new-cool.

Head inside to see what I’m talking about!

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (04.09.14) Numba One Stunnas

 Ultimate Comics Ultimates

As a kid, young Hotsauce loved him some #1 issues.  Even for books I knew I wasn’t going to keep up with, I’d grab the first chapter.  Was it a collector’s instinct?  A love of foil covers?  Maybe to both, though I’d like to think it’s mainly because I am a fan of beginnings.  The promise of the start of a journey is much more enjoyable than the realization of or expectations for its ending, to me.  I doubt this is an uncommon feeling, though, and certainly not among comic fans, who are often given new beginnings, and rarely the finales.  The trend continues today as your LCS/iGadget/Whatever is inundated with a slew of “firsties.”  So climb inside the escape pod, hit the jump, and let’s talk Miles Morales, Iron Fist, Doop, and whatever other comics are nuzzling your nethers this week!

Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (3.19.14) – Spring Break Fo’evah

Spring Break!

Yo kids, it’s that time of the year.  The land thaws, the days get longer, and the great migratory pattern of the teeming, oversexed youth of the nation marches southward.  It’s also time to break out those wallets, and ramp our nation’s commerce back up.  For those not into buying nunchakus and shorts in every color, we got Ghost Rider rockin a hemi on hell-wheels, Daredevil changes locales, more John Prophet, more Kamala Khan, and Superman off da’ chain all comin at us today!  I got comic books in my blood, ya’ll, and I hope you do, too.  This is the American Dream.  It’s Spring Break, ninjas!  So put on your dark tannin’ oil, spritz on two kinds of Calvin Klein, and hit up the LCS for this week’s dopest selections.

Hit us up in the comments below to celebrate the accumulation of material goods with us, particularly of the four-color variety.
