I am Eric Lingenfelter.
Happy birthday to Jack Kirby!

Even if he just drew this, he’d be a comics legend. Lucky for us, he did way more. Like, WAY more.

Just read Grant Morrison’s Multiversity #1.I wasn’t sure about it at first, but then I remembered that Grant Morrison’s comics are always about the ways that fiction and reality influence and interact with each other.
When I realized that the Big Bads in this are basically jerkass Comic Book Guys who think that all comics must be Very Serious because comics are Very Serious Art, and that Nix Uotan - our hero for the first few pages - is a once-noble comic book critic who gets corrupted when he gets sucked into the cosmic equivalent of a Twitter argument, I laughed out loud and the whole thing clicked into place.Oh, Grant. Don’t ever stop being you.

"I need a one-word suggestion."

"Nyl’fgar!"

"No proper nouns, please."

"Um, it’s actually an Elvish curse word referring to a half-orc’s secondary anus."

"OK…"

"The one below their nose."

"Oh, right right right. Like, orc mouths are buttholes because they’re always talking shit."
