The horrible thing about this comic book is that it's really just okay. It's not even bad. It takes a great premise, and wastes it into mediocre. These aren't characters, they're filler for plot sequences. The gore and violence floats out disconnecte...more

It was, of course, nothing more than sexism, the especially virulent type espoused by male techies who sincerely believe that they are too smart to be sexists.Neal Stephenson

“The ambitions are wake up, breathe, keep breathing.”
Nicole Blackman, Blood Sugar

Neal Stephenson
“It was, of course, nothing more than sexism, the especially virulent type espoused by male techies who sincerely believe that they are too smart to be sexists.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

Dessa
“There is some mercy after all in our design:
a soft amnesia for the frequently mistreated,
an adrenal surge for the cornered and outnumbered,
a flash of light for the very nearly dead.”
Dessa, Spiral Bound

Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Bruce Sterling
“America hadn't really been suited for its long and tiresome role as the Last Superpower, the World's Policeman. As a patriotic American, Oscar was quite content to watch other people's military coming home in boxes for a while. The American national character wasn't suited for global police duties. It never had been. Tidy and meticulous people such as the Swiss and the Swedes were the types who made good cops. America was far better suited to be the World's Movie Star. The world's tequila-addled pro-league bowler. The world's acerbic, bipolar stand-up comedian. Anything but a somber and tedious nation of socially responsible centurions.”
Bruce Sterling, Distraction
