The Football Factory – Review

April 28, 2006

Violence, drugs, football (the non-American kind) and sex. This is what The Football Factory promises. Well, two out of four ain’t bad, right?

Punk: Attitude – Review

April 28, 2006

From MC5 to Blink-182, and all the cultural aspects that were spawned from the all-encompassing movement. The fashion, safety pins, crude language, and ‘zines.

The Snow Prince – Review

February 3, 2006

I enjoyed the last two pages: A story he wrote for his niece when she was upset about moving. It hilarious and better by far than the rest of the book.

The Jungle – Review

February 3, 2006

Someone finally got it right. The artwork in The Jungle is cubist and raw, boxy and sad. The colors are simple, depressing, and magnificent.

Pirate Club – #6 – Review

February 3, 2006

Legend of Zelda with ass-kicking Japanation at it’s best. The art is very pleasing to the eye: Boxy, sharp angles, a video game without the pixilation.

NIL – A Land Beyond Belief – Review

February 3, 2006

Simple, black and white, blocky, boxy and art deco, with all the factories, wheels, and cogs for a backdrop. The story is slow at first, worth your time.

Devilboy in the Land of Love – Review

February 3, 2006

This is Edward Gorey and Shel Silverstein after they finish off a handle of Jack and double-team Mother Goose, the sick fucks. Juvenile, silly, and I like it.

Bear – #8 – Review

February 3, 2006

The set up is similar to Garfield, except instead of a dog, it’s a bear, and instead of being stupid, it’s quite smart. And Looshkin is WAY more fucked up.

Lenore – #12 – Review

February 3, 2006

I thought the “cute little dead girl” gig would run out, but 12 issues deep, it’s still just as witty, innocent, raunchy, and chalk fulla potty-mouthed humor.

Haunted Mansion – #1 – Review

February 3, 2006

Different stories by different authors based on the Disney attraction, The Haunted Mansion. It sounds pretty lame, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.

Corporate Ninja – #1 – Review

February 3, 2006

Corporate Ninja looked totally kick ass. Its humor, while cliché and tame, broke a smile every now and again. Perhaps more decapitations would help.

Chixdiggit! – Pink Razors – Review

November 11, 2005

That same pop punk sound with the same three chords. It’s mindless to listen to, fun to dance around to, and although it’s super cheesy, I love it.

Big Teaze Toys – Review

June 13, 2005

Under the guise of waterproof vibrating massagers comes the Tickle-Popzzz (which makes it oh so much fun to say I’m a Lollipop Girl), and the S&M Bondage duck.

Gizoogle – Review

June 13, 2005

This thugged-out version of the Google search engine finds sites and translates a blurb into thug language “Fo all you beotches who wanna find shiznat.”

Ebaum’s World – Review

June 13, 2005

If it sez “The most annoying thing I’ve seen,” I’ll click it. I won’t return my parent’s calls, but I’ll replay “Tequilla” played by a rabbit, lion, and ape.

Thrills, Spills And Chills – Review

June 13, 2005

Dirt bikes, jet skis, skateboarding, snowboarding, and even skiing and rollerblading, all set to the latest punk/hardcore bands. What more could you ask for?

Punk Rock Holocaust – Review

June 13, 2005

I love the Warped Tour and hate a lot of bands that call themselves “punk” nowadays, so I really wanted to see them die slasher-movie style.

Cocopiazo – No. 1 – Review

June 13, 2005

When women or turtles aren’t falling into John’s lap, he’s got someone out to get him. Appearances by Death, a very cute two-headed chick, and salty wit.

Boneyard – Vol 3 – Review

June 13, 2005

Instead of a dark, evil fiend scaring the wits out of helpless, sexy teenagers, the IRS is coming after a guy and his slew of cute monster friends.

Cake – Pressure Chief – Review

February 7, 2005

The album is okay, better than most of the shit that’s being produced. It’s growing on me. This might be the album we’ve been waiting for since Fashion Nugget.

The Self-Destruction Handbook – Review

October 4, 2004

Who’d’ve thought a stick figure drawing could make you laugh out loud? If your sense of humor is sick, twisted, and extremely cynical, get this book right now.
