Y’know, for some unexplained, mysterious reason I really wanted to make a joke referencing Kid Rock (aka Robert James Ritchie, the blandest name ever) and I have no real reason as to why. I don’t particularly like Kid Rock or his music but it just seemed like a good idea. But then again almost all my jokes seem like good ideas. Then I make them.
Anyways. So I’m back, the fog has lifted, the earth has shifted and raised the gifted–damnit! I started making a Kid Rock reference again. What the Hell, me?
Stop making Kid Rock references. Stop it. It’s inappropriate. Alright, shake it off. *cue shaking my head side to side, Nixon-impersonation style* Woo, okay. I think I’m done.
But not with this article, that should’ve already gone underway. So, let’s jump right the fuck into it, this proverbial pit of monsters and creepy shit in comics with this edition of Peril In Panels! So this week we’re doing something different, something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while. I’ll be talking about more than one single comic in this article, one from Marvel and two from Dark Horse. I was originally going to do Kraven’s Last Hunt or maybe Preludes and Nocturnes, the first collected volume of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman (or maybe even some Emily Carroll “His Face All Red”) but I decided to hold off on those, because I want to take the time to really dissect ’em and explain what I think of them and more importantly WHY I think that. So the perfect solution is to do these smaller stories. Bonus is that they’re all perfect for this article. Enjoy!
