Adjusting Crotch Radio...

Oh, swell... another one of these sequences. Just get your ass out there and save people already! CHRIST! And what's with all the Snap-Tite/Lego crap goin' on? He didn't have to do that last time! Young Gerry Conway, my patience with your shenanigans is growing perilously thin at this point.

Still, wouldn't it have been great if "THINCH!" had become as closely associated with Iron Man as "SNIKT!" is with Wolverine? Every comic-con would have herds of fanboys wandering around with "THINCH!" emblazoned on their too-small t-shirts. *sighs wistfully*

Christ on a bike, I hope he remembered to actually charge his damned suit this time.

The last "action" scene -- a term I use with some hesitation -- was just a teensy bit disappointing.

If it helps, we're actually headed into the climactic fight scene. And the infamous "lobster-claw antennae" show up in two more pages (i.e. maybe a week and a half).

It's like Voltron or the Rambo cartoon, the heroes have to go through this whole elaborate and repetitive set up before they spring into action.

Black Widow said...

that sounds like Tony though

Phillip said...

Yeah just like Rambo or Voltron, they're avoiding actual plot in favor of padding.

Jon and Phillip: A-ha! So "THINCH!" is the American equivalent of all that sword-clang noise in a giant robot cartoon when two metal parts come together... or when the sun glints off of something shiny. (Yes, the sun shines quite noisily in Japan!)

Black Widow: Cool, up-close and personal info from a superhero insider! I like it!

I'm hoping for another five pages of Seussified thinching together of inchified things, followed by Iron Man emerging triumphantly from the bathroom stall into a destroyed Washington.

Then he smacks his forehead and says, "no, wait. I forgot a few things," and goes back into the stall. And then, y'know, finally goes out to fight the long-gone terrorists, only to collapse because the batteries are still sitting on the sink.

And...what's with the hip-frisbees, and why do they sound like "swik"? I hope they're important to the plot, because the artist keeps drawing attention to them whenever Iron Man can be bothered to show up.

Three cheers for Seussified Iron Man! ("Tony Clones a Thor!") The hip frisbees are the power sources, I think, and I imagine they're filled with little D batteries. Which is why they burn out after like, fifteen seconds.
