When a thing you love ends how do you remember it? Do you remember the good times? The times before it all went wrong? We don’t remember the past objectively anyways. Perhaps life is just about joy, about purity, about perfect moments.

Or perhaps the dark time matter. Perhaps surviving the hard times makes the good times better. Perhaps when we look back we we strip something vital, something important, something that matters, if we strip away all the flaws, the confusion and the betrayal.

All I know for sure in life is that Dune was a stand alone novel, and The New 52 Action Comics only had two volumes.

Season 5 Episode 5: Elder Godhood and the Life Cycle of a Fish-Man

Title: Hellboy Volume 1
Creator: Mike Mignola
Publisher: Dark Horse
Release Date: 3rd Edition: December 9, 2003

Listen to me! The Many-Sided-Ones knock! You think we are just Podcasting about their glory three weeks in a row because they make for great villains? You think we like talking about their many sided glory? We love them with a dark love. Our dedication to their glory flows not from our own engines. The Mechanic removed that which shines in us. Now we rot. We rot with the glory and power of an ant forced to behold the full splendor of a man. Our many sided parts, jokered passion, our ardor are not a warning, but rather a joyful noise! We are The Men of the Vestry; We show you What-Is-To-Come!

Alternatively titled Sometimes Red Dudes Get Unreasonably Angry About Frogs.

VFCast! Season 5 Episode 4 – Two Men, One Boy

Title: Batman/Starman/Hellboy Issue 1 & 2
Author: James Robinson
Artist: Mike Mignola
Publisher: DC & Dark Horse
Release Date: January 1999

This is a crossover book drawn by a very popular creator and written by a cult favorite about the most popular character in comics and his dudebros. James Robinson has a very devoted fan following (Cabel and Leland included) and Mike Mignola is an extremely influential writer/artist.

So why can’t I find anything about it online? Seriously, the Wikipedia entry isn’t even important enough to get tagged with the “it’s just a synopsis” tag. It is so unimportant that no one (us included) even cared to mark that it was a bad entry.

Why is that? This should be an important book, right? There are big things happening. It is Starman’s first multiverse crossover. It is Mignola’s first time to professionally draw Batman. It has semi-false advertising on the cover.

We enjoyed it, so I guess all my confusion is somewhat moot.

Meh.
