Bendis & Stern & My Life Sucks

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Had to get up early to finish a report for history that is probably about two hundred years ahead of most of the wastoids in my class. I’m willing to bet the teacher will like it, if she understands it. Anyhow, so I missed the announcement of the first entry below. And that day just […]

The third thing that Fanboy wants more than anything else in the world, and the one thing that he wouldn’t tell Goth Girl he wants, is that he wants his parents to get back together. He strongly desires this, but also feels rather selfish wishing for it because his mom does seem pretty happy with […]

I think the third thing Fanboy wants is to be Accepted by others. Cal and Kyra welcomes him but that’s only two people. If only two people were to like you then you might notice something was wrong. Fanboy has lots of self-esteem issues and I can relate. He is picked at in school by […]

On the Texas Tour… Houston (Day 2)

One of the most exhilarating and rewarding stops on the Texas Tour came on January 22 at Elsik High School in Alief, TX… At Elsik, Barry got to meet with dozens upon dozens of students and staff members from Elsik and other district schools…all of whom had read the book! It was an amazing experience […]

The Third, and secretive, Thing that Fanboy wants is someone to love, but for that someone to love him back as well. He wants this because he does not want to feel completely empty, as if no one is there for him; the idea that having someone love you unconditionally is the idea that they […]

The third thing is he wants to feel needed. All throughtout the story it seemed like people just didn’t need him as much as he needed them. He needs Cal, his only friend, and Kyra. It doesn’t seem like they need him though. Cal’s got his jock buddies at school, even if they don’t rave […]

The third thing Fanboy wants isn’t something he can buy. He wants to be someone he’s proud of; someone he can look at in the mirror and really, truly like. He wants to be the hero of his own story, to understand other people, to be the sort of person that he feels it worth […]

Hey, Slate — Shut the hell up!

Friday, January 26th, 2007

So, did everyone see this article on Slate? It’s mainly about Heroes, which I love, but it’s a real backhanded slap at comics. Man, I think it’s a bunch of crap. “Starting in the 1980s…” Look I’m not the oldest comic fan I know, not even close really, but has this writer ever checked out […]
