Once I wrote a review of this book on some interweb forum, and then I got an email from a teacher in Japan who'd used my review as the basis for a literary discussion for why this book sucks.

In the first issue of Jason Aaron's run, there's a weird throwaway joke about how Doctor Strange has a magic stomach that can only digest gross things. Little do you know that this is the plot of the entire series. There is so much eating of gross th ...more

“The world is my idea; as such I present it to you. I have my own set of weights and measures and my own table for computing values. You are privileged to have yours.”
Charles G. Finney, The Circus of Dr. Lao

“...it obeys none of the natural laws of hereditary and environmental change, pays no attention to the survival of the fittest, positively sneers at any attempt on the part of man to work out a rational life cycle, is possibly immortal, unquestionably immoral, evidences anabolism but not katabolism, ruts, spawns, and breeds but does not reproduce, lays no eggs, builds no nests, seeks but does not find, wanders but does not rest.”

Joe R. Lansdale
“I thanked him and he asked me if my cape got caught on stuff when I was running and jumping, and I said, "Sometimes.”
Joe R. Lansdale

“All I'm trying to say is that if you're not willing to observe this, if you're just going to condemn it, you're never going to see it. It's there, whether you like it or not. This is stupid life-force we're dealing with here," he said. "Think how old it is, Jim. Think how huge it is. Understanding it doesn't make any difference.”
Jim Paul, Catapult: Harry and I Build a Siege Weapon
