"Cosmic capsules", indeed!

In today's Fourth World panel (from Forever People #2), our heroes help a young boy take an acid trip:

Wow. New Gods came right out of the gate with the awesomeness, but Forever People didn't really start going until the second issue. I'm hoping the same thing happens with Mister Miracle...

As for new reviews, my stupid scanner is still broken, so it might be a few more days. Dammit.


  1. Hey dude,

    Just wanted to say, thanks for posting to my blog!

    Also, I like the one-panel-per-day from Fourth World. Fun idea. I'm thinking I might do something like that with Chris Claremont's X-Men (if I can ever get the hang of my roommate's scanner), because it would be much easier than writing a review of every single comic Claremont X comic (which I still want to do, but -- holy geez, it's daunting).

  2. Thanks! I went with the "panel a day" format because I don't know if I could have done much of a review of the whole thing, other than saying "It's awesome!" over and over. Plus, this is a good way of recording my progress through the book, which I'm enjoying immensely.

    And yeah, that might be a good way to do the Claremont thing, even if only to get started. Just posting one image is much easier than trying to cover the whole issue, so it's a good way to get the writerly juices flowing.
