Michael Ian Black “Loses His Shit,” Scolds a Moron

Mr Black explains:

The guy in the dark says, “Because when you say you like Obama, that’s the same thing to me as saying ‘Heil Hitler.’”

The audience, predictably, starts booing. I ask them to please calm down, that I will handle this in a mature way. While I am saying this to the audience, I am thinking, How do I possibly handle this in a mature way.

So the audience settles down, and I turn to the gentleman and say, “Sir, I say with this all due respect – you are a fucking moron.”

Unashamed and delighted.

One thing we’re required to ask is, “Why aren’t you reading BOMB QUEEN?” Issue one is up for the reading on Robinson’s Comics Space. You have no excuse now.

Ash Saves Obama: Comics, You’re Being Silly Now

Ash Saves Obama

Whilst perusing a CBR article on Joshua WIlliamson’s “Necessary Evil” project (coming soon to Cartoon Network), an ad caught our eye.

Army of Darkness: Ash Saves Obama #1, it says. Coming August 2009 from Dynamite Entertainment, it boasts. Being a sucker for sensationalist entertainment we clicked and did not find the content advertised. Being OCD’s bitch, we ran to Google for quick information/assistance.
