Just another word on Crossovers...

You have no idea how, despite my promise to get back to reviewing bad movies, badly I want to write about this little chunk of terror:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Not convinced that'd wound your brain?

I love how they had to actually write "pinch" in action font just so you couldn't miss it. God.

Edit: On a side note, that auction (mentioned in the post below) is still up and, what do you know, someone bid on it. Neat, right?

That is incredibly disturbing.....what in the HELL were they thinking?!?! The vulcan death grip/pinch on wolverine....i think wolverine honestly would've won that brawl - omg, does this make me a nerd because i'm actually picturing this...AAAH!!

Sara: No. It'll make you a nerd if you write fanfic about it.

What is Spock doing there if the cover says it's 'The Next Generation'? Also, pinched or not, Spock might want to reconsider allowing Wolverine to grab him at belt level. ESPECIALLY after saying "I trust I made my point." That's just asking for comedy.

An even bigger nerd in your fanfic involves the phrase "As he gazed deeply into Wolverine's eyes, he felt the urge growing....growing..."

....my goodness I need sleep.

Thanks for the reassurance Collin...hmm...saying that i don't even know what fanfic is (but now I can make a somewhat educated guess) - i think that i must be safe from 'nerd-dom'. :)

awhile back (i think around the time the last star trek movie came out, though it might have been the last xmen movie) i saw patric stewart talking to john stewart on the daily show, and he related the following story;
aparently, during the run of next generation, someone from marvel comics approached him and asked him if they could use his likeness for an xmen/startrek crossover wanted to do. steward claims that (while not knowing what an xman was) he declined, stating that if they ever made an xmen movie, and he played a character, it would be wierd.

ps. hulyen hurt my brain

pps. is it me, or has patric stewart not aged a day since he was gurney

Wait, "Second Contact?" Is that a mere play on the popular term for the discovering of an alien species, or does it mean there were two of these unofortunate issues...?

I was wondering who was going to point out the whole Classic Star Trek vs. Next Generation fubar thing going on here.
Yes, they made two issues..maybe even three if the "To be continued" line at the end of issue 2 is to be believed.

Really I'm having trouble fighting the desire to post more horrible comic reviews. A full review of these, the adventures of a crotch-based super-criminal known as "The Codpiece", and maybe even a webcomic or two should be coming soon. That's more a threat than anything else.

Also it's very surreal knowing a family member is regularly reading the Blog. Let's hope my mother never finds out what a Blog is.

Actually, Spock was in a couple episodes of The Next Generation, if I recall correctly.

THE MORE YOU KNOW.
