Were still scratching out heads about this one.  It all started with our confusion about the title, and got worse from there.  This week were reading the surreal Manga parody, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.  Try getting your spell check not to freak out over that combination of letters.

Dark 'N Stormy

  • 2 oz Dark Rum
  • 1/2 to 3/4 oz Lime Juice
  • 4 oz Ginger Beer

Add rum and lime juice to a glass.  And Ice and stir.  Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wheel if you so desire.

It may be a bit of a stretch, but Bryan likes this simple cocktail, and things are "Dark and Stormy" for America, Manhattan, and the characters in DMZ.

Bat Bite

This week we are discussing 2002 Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia. From Greg Rucka and J.G. Jones, this book would begin Rucka’s long run writing Wonder Woman.  We changed up the format a little this week.  In part one we do a spoiler free intro to the book, then in part two we step thru the plot of the book and explore this gem.  Let us know what you think of the format change on our website, or any of our social media outlets.  Next week we are reading Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon.  A modern take on what an Avenger does when he has no suit, no powers, and isn’t Avenging.

Black Bitch

This week we stretch our feminist muscle with Bitch Planet.  We read the first collection of this current series by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro.  It is both a feminist parody of exploitation films, specifically women in prison movies, and a great commentary on society.
