FOX NEWS SAID SOME INCREDIBLY STUPID BULLSHIT ABOUT COMICS AGAIN
By Chris Sims
The great thing about Fox News is that it’s only Tuesday and you’re already about to see the dumbest thing you’ll see all week.

In this case, it’s a clip from Fox’s weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman’s upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman’s costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee’s redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.

No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.

Before they get to comics, though, the Fox Friends turn their dead-eyed smiles to a tragedy of epic proportions, blasting animator Genndy Tartakovsky‘s upcoming Popeye film for removing the sailor man’s “iconic” pipe. The reason behind this is, of course, that this movie is for children and, in general, having a character for children using tobacco products is a bad idea what with that whole thing where they give you cancer and heart disease. According to Fox News, however, the original Popeye smoked a pipe, and since medical science hasn’t learned anything new about how smoking affects you in the past seventy years, this must be part of the ongoing liberal plot to “wussify” America, which pretty rich coming from a guy who famously got bullied out of wearing bow ties on television.

That man is of course Tucker Carlson (he’s the dimwit on the left, in case you’re unfamiliar with this confederacy of dipsh*ts), who even goes as far as to make a truly aneurysm-inducingly stupid comparison: “Popeye driving around giving the morning-after pill to fourth graders, that would be fine, but smoking a pipe, a symbol of masculinity and freedom and America itself, the reason this country exists, tobacco, that’s like… oh, that’s outrageous.” And you know, maybe it’s just that I’ve had to bash myself in the head with a hammer a couple dozen times just to get through watching this video, but I’m starting to think he’s right. Fourth graders should have the GOD-GIVEN AMERICAN FREEDOM to have as many babies and cancers as they want! I guess? That’s what he’s saying, right? And then they talk about how Popeye was a good message for the kids about eating your spinach, and smoking.

Also, they refer to the screenshots of the Popeye movie as “photos,” which makes me think that they actually think Popeye is a real person and not a computer drawing of an imaginary sailor.

Once that’s done, they move on to Thor, and it’s at this point where you can see three human beings (or at least three somewhat convincing reptilian simulacra) turn into a YouTube Comments Section given human form.

AMAZING. INSIGHTFUL. SO DEEP. SO MUCH HAWK. LOVE. AND HAWKLOVE.

One other awesome aspect of Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue Deconnick’s “Rose City” BBQ was that they turned their fire pit into a s’mores station!


Reese’s for S’mores??? These people are on another level.

Rose City Comic Con 2014 was really fun! I have few regrets, no disappointments, and most of those were not telling people that I liked their look when I had the chance. Everyone was as cool and nice as you’d hope.

Highlights:

  • Finding out the Sam Wood is just as addicted to Marvel: Avengers Alliance as I am.

  • The quality of the costume contest was so high that amateur and professionals (ie FrightTown) were be indistinguishable. I made a more concerted effort on Sunday to tell people when I liked their costume. Here’s a reddit page were people have shared many of the amazing costumes people had created but I know there are other galleries floating around.
  • The panels moderated by Professor Ben Saunders were fantastic. I really wish I’d been able to take his class (and get a minor in comic books) when I was at UO. Any chance you get to see Greg Rucka or Kelly Sue start frothing with indignation is fantastic. Matt Fraction froths with humility.

  • The Pinky and the Brain panel moderated by Stephanie Stricklen was amazing. If that had been the only thing I got to see, I still would have been pleased with the weekend.
  • Willow Wilson was super nice. I had such a pleasant exchange with her and not just because she complimented my hair. My partner and I had intense discussions about my hair.

  •  Talking with Kelly Sue about the shrike in Pretty Deadly, which I totally missed on the first read-through. We have a couple species that can be found in the region, but are pretty uncommon. There have been sightings in Bend in the past, but I’ve read that they only spend the winter in the Pacifc northwest and even then you have to get fairly lucky to spot a cache or pay close attention to every songbird. I also got to tell her about the kea from New Zealand. It is a carnviorous parrot that occassionally takes down sheep. Here's an amazing page on it complete with some video of these amazing birds.  (They are a strong contrast the the largest New Zealand parrot, the kakapo)
  • If anyone is still jonesing for more Portland comic stuff, I recommend taking a listen to last week’s episode of State of Wonder (here). I expect Geek in the City podcast to have a nice wrap up episode later this week as well. 

There was also a guy dressed as Deadpool who seemed very upset by the out of character moment of Wolverine (me) and Lady Deadpool (my fiancee) holding hands. If I could go back and do one thing differently, I would have asked him to take our picture. I really liked the passion that guy brought.
