Dave Brown and 28 other people liked Kenny's review of Batman: R.I.P.:
Batman by Grant Morrison

“American religion is conspicuous for its messianically pretentious energy, its embarassingly banal prose, and its impatiently hustling ambition.”
Eugene H. Peterson

Warren Ellis
“Elijah Snow: 'Who have you pissed off this time, John?'

John Stone: 'Sumatran robot death sluts -- Dammit, ONE of these buttons fires the atomic death biter --”
Warren Ellis, Planetary, Volume 4: Spacetime Archaeology

Neil Gaiman
“Every hour wounds. The last one kills.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political or religious, produces an outburst of folly in a large part of mankind; indeed, this seems actually to be a psychological and sociological law: the power of some needs the folly of others.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison

Neal Stephenson
“I just saved your fucking life, Mom...It's like, if you--people of a certain age--would make some effort to just stay in touch with sort of basic, modern-day events, then your kids wouldn't have to take these drastic measures.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash
