If it’s debatable, we debate it. If it’s little-known, we reference it. However absurd, inane or trivial, we treat it with the care and precision of surgeons. Hungry surgeons at a buffet (we also mix our metaphors). Feast with us, won’t you?

How Can I Laugh Today (1)

I’m sure that by now most of you have seen Avengers 2. Did I enjoy it? The answer is yes. Did I think it became a joke fest? The answer is yes. I enjoy the humor in most Marvel movies and comics when it’s appropriate and done by the right character. In the Avengers 2 I sometimes felt like I was watching an Improv group where someone might be chosen to join the SNL cast. So the only one I have to blame here is Whedon on this. It’s the Avengers not an episode of Buffy! Ease up ya bastich.

edge of sanity

At this point you’ve now seen images of the Jared Leto Joker. After seeing the new take on him I was confused, angry, and a little hungry. I could go on about the Joker being a Juggalo or how he really loves shopping at Hot Topic but I wont! I’ve heard people say that he’s edgy and normal people just don’t get it. To them I say fuck that, he’s a parody of himself and I just hope that Jordan Catalano can sing the hell out of that Ramones song and save the day again.

 

This also may be the 2nd comic I’ve called Edge of Sanity. Find the other and I’ll give you a creepy hug.

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.
