Manhunter To End? Apparently not!!

Newsarama posted this most excellent news tidbit, buried deep within its NYCC coverage:

" ... and that Manhunter is back from the dead again (with the added confirmation that this is for good…not a 5-6 issue reprieve)."

There is much more in the way of news to share with you, but alas we must walk our office mascot, Mister Fanboy Capybara.

Civil War To End Tomorrow

General Rogers will meet General Stark at the Appomattox Courthouse to sign the armistice. If not them, then their stand-ins (Lieutenant Barnes knows he's up for a promotion). President Bush to celebrate by going to a play. Vice President Cheney continues to fiddle as Stamford, CT burns, all the while leading Hell's minions to Earth. Inmates from notorious Negative Zone Prison expected to be released today. Mass migrations expected North. Ken Burns already planning the documentary. Developing ...

Mister Fanboy Movies Mini Haiku Review: Breach

Today, Mister Fanboy is pretty much just phoning in a review of Breach, starring Chris Cooper, Ryan Phillippe, and Laura Linney, which opened this past weekend. It is based on the story of Robert Hansen, an FBI agent who was caught selling U.S. state secrets to the Soviets and then Russians. True story: We once lived 3 blocks from the park where he was caught making the drops.

Agent sells secrets

Cooper great, Linney annoys

Phillippe good; go see

It's been a whirlwind last few weeks. International travel for work. Visits by family and the requisite happenings that go along with all of that. Domestic travel. Not to mention a haircut. So basically, we've been lame and haven't been blogging. So sorry. Look for some sort of post tomorrow. Yep, we're committing.

In the meantime, I will leave you with one thought. Namely, we overheard the following ... It was said somewhere, by an anonymous woman describing a recent tryst to her girlfriends, while she didn't realize she was speaking so loudly:

My lips were so swollen I could hardly pee.

Comic-Con 2007 Hotels: Going, Going, Gone

It appears that all of the conference hotels booked up in about an hour today for the 2007 Comic-Con in San Diego. Beginning at 9 AM PST, the Mister Fanboy Editorial Staff, armed with a cell phone and high speed internet connection, tried to get through to make a reservation. We had our priorities straight and were blowing off work for a bit. Clearly we weren't the only ones. Phones were busy for the full hour and the internet pages were going nowhere, presumably due to the high volume of traffic. Luckily, we did finally get a page to load and made reservations for one of the conference hotels, but the bummer is that it's not on the free shuttle path. It was our only option, so we took it. We do recall that last year that satellite parking was available at Qualcomm Stadium, and we suspect that it will be the same this year. What the hell is Quallcomm and why do they have a stadium?
Out of curiosity, we kept calling over the phone to see if we could get a better room. We finally got through to someone around 10:30 AM and all of the rooms were booked. Still, we are also guessing that folks sharing rooms all tried to reserve their own room and once they all confab, room reservations may be released (they didn't ask for $ up front to make a reservation). Or maybe the Comic-Con folks will be able to get more hotel rooms released. So we'll keep checking every morning to see if we can't get a room closer.

We're curious - How'd you do?

Invite: Telly Savalas' Private Orgy (Ladies Only, Baby)

Update: For reasons that are unclear to us, though assuredly have to do with simultaneus aging of Tina Yothers and increase in popularity of assholes why drive Jetta's, we weren't able to post the clip here. Follow the link, baby.

It's like we've been invited to view Telly Savalas' private orgy room through a camera hidden in someone's anus. Now if that's not enough to get you to watch the clip, we're out of ideas.

Some may say that this is not comics related. We say pshaw! They're has to be a Kojak comic - if not, there should be. Sure this was posted on Boing Boing last week and you've probably already seen it. We say, we've been busy - give us a break.

We'll be back to normal posting shortly. Be patient.

Wonder Woman's Private Letter To Superman

We know, we've been remiss about posting. What can we say except that the job that pays the bills has been a succubus, stealing all or time and energy.

In the meantime, read this letter to Superman from Wonder Woman about the Invisible Jet, posted on The Gilded Moose today. It's a hoot (but not of the "give a hoot, don't pollute variety). And for the record, Ms. Bondage Queen (Wonder Woman) has to be lying when she talks about the sex sling. We're just saying ...
