old timey

Whenever I see someone with an old timey mustache I think “you’re not Rolly Fingers”, Then I think why hasn’t anyone beaten you yet. The only people that should have that type of facial hair are street tuffs who box kangaroos. The handlebar mustache is the equivalent of a gothic kid carrying a boa constrictor around their neck for attention. Now you may say “But Gent! You have a shitty 90s goatee”. My response is yes, but it’s in honor of  the band Los Lobos. A band who I connect to the movie La Bamba which in turn reminds me of Esai Morales and his desire to throw away cartoon drawings. So lay off of me putos!

 

Just to be clear all of these events happened and just like all of our comics every word is a direct quote. We take this factual news comic seriously and we hope you do too.

Love Obscure Gent

the look

DC comics showed the world a few revamped costumes last week. The one I took note of was Superman. He really looks like some mouth breathing bro who is ready to commit a hate crime. Now I’m sure they’ll return him to his original glory but for now, I’m not interested in reading about the exploits of how Superman pounded a Monster energy drink while installing some truck nuts on his new raised dooley.

Note: Apparently the lack of quotation marks and obviously embellished words by Bob Harras did not make the comic clear enough.  To make things clear for the small percentage of people that did not get this let me say that these are not actual quotes. I hope that clears it up for the people who take a comic that makes fun of things seriously.

More items that are not true

-We did not see Aquaman come out of the water.

-The Trevor character was never murdered.

-Turkeys have never tried to touch Trevor in inappropriate ways.

-Bruce Campbell will not have a gun that shoots nacho cheese.

I’ve played many a game online through Xbox and Playstation. While this doesn’t happen every time I wish I could go to a parent’s house and find out why they allow their kids to talk like cretins. It’s unfortunate that the experience you get from playing people online is one riddled with homophobia and racial slurs. The good news is that there is a mute button and I don’t hear one word of the ignorance anymore.

Also a special thanks to honorary Gent Rob Darke for playing the part of one of the Dads.

Aaron did this tribute to Leonard Nimoy, a fallen sci-fi warrior. Aaron appreciates everything Nimoy did and therefore wanted to do this.

Today, we lost an icon. Some people will not understand that sadness that this loss has brought onto most people, but I say it is a great loss. To me Nimoy sits on the pantheon of sci-fi and nerdom that I love. He’s part of the reason that I love what I love. When I was younger and I would repeat in my head something that Spock once said “Pain is a thing of the mind. The mind can be controlled.”. He was the logic that kept the typical hero archetype that was Kirk. Through the years he did amazing voice over work that I loved in Transformers, Futurama, and the Simpsons. Lastly I will always remember his amazing villain role as Dr. William Bell in one of my favorite all time shows Fringe. I will miss the greatness he brought to this world but will always preserve it in memory.
