StrangeFate indeed

While browsing the local dollar store, I came upon some odd packages: a number of old TMNT storybooks bagged with a random comic. Among them: Amalgm titles like JLX and Dr.Strangefate, and even an issue of Impulse. I just found that odd.

I delved into the second Promethea trade, and when they said it got stranger later on, they were far from kidding. The whole 'magic sex' stuff was...errrr, a little outside my jurisdiction. Right now, I'm in the issue where Mike and Mack the talking staff snakes explain how the tarot cards represent time and the evolution of the universe. It's kinda exited 'story fun' territory. It's still interesting but, when it is basically an article about tarot cards, it gets kinda dull. The visuals are still very nice, though.

In other news DC Countdown.

I like the idea of rotating creative teams and 'anything goes' stories. It means I can just pick up the issues that interest me. Even so, the 'shocking death' thing is kind of off-putting. I mean, it's not like those things aren't a dime-a-dozen these days.

I bought Grandaddy's Just like the Fambly Cat today. I'm liking it.
