Now that his Amazon sitcom Alpha House has been renewed for another “season,” Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau will put the comic strip on hold. Fine, just as long as there’s not another Doonesbury musical. This development in no way means the newspaper comic strip is a dying medium or anything (it totally is). Trudeau will […]
So it looks like Yr Doktor Zoom has landed on the Comix Beat today, what with that funnybook review we did earlier, and then a story about unoriginal cartoon character Allen West, and now this bizarre story about a gender discrimination suit against the co-CEO of Archie Comics. The Universe is sending a message, and […]
When Kid Zoom was a wee lad of about 4, his favorite bedtime story for a while was Yr Doktor Zoom’s extemporaneous retelling of Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight. No idea how we stumbled on that narrative as a bedtime story; maybe there was a hope that the part about Lindbergh barely being able to stay […]
Everyone should drop what they’re doing right now and give a million Pulitzers to the Comics Alliance for blowing the lid off of an upcoming “Steampunk Palin” comic book/graphic novel/spank mag. It is (obviously) about a near-future crisis where “Big Oil/Nuke” seizes control of energy production and so everyone has to switch to steam power […]
For reasons as mysterious as the motivations of superheroes themselves, Marvel Comics has canceled plans to put out a comic book and cartoon show called Governator and starring the character of former California governor/gross old movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Why would such a sure hit be halted? Can’t a multi-millionaire celebrity/politician do whatever he wants?
Oh look, mysterious Wonkette intern Benjamin Frisch did a “political cartoon” for you!
Like so many great works of fiction — The Canterbury Tales, Macbeth, and Sarah Palin’s Twitter feed — Ayn Rand’s Adventures in Wonderland is not truly understood until one has read the thing dozens, nay, hundreds of times. It may be true that Ayn’s follies are done, but make haste! There is so much pleasure […]
It is time for our final installment, in which Ayn must pay for her foul deeds … and economic justice is most certainly served.
This is it — the penultimate edition of Ayn Rand’s graphic novel Chick Tract! Come and join Ayn in the objectivist climax of our story, there’s only one left after this one, baby!
After nine episodes of Ayn’s Adventures, you are probably so addicted to Mizz Rand’s animal magnetism that you couldn’t look away from this, our 10th episode, if you wanted to.
Ayn seems to have come full circle since our first installment. Like a snake eating its own tail, Ayn is locked in a never-ending struggle to end Socialism forever and also to forever choke on her own vomit.
Once, these comics were about serious political satire, but now they are all basically Bad Boys 2. Will guns and bootstraps help us get film options? COME ON OLIVER STONE YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS.
Ayn Rand’s Present Day Adventures continue in this, Episode V! In honor of this fifth weekiversary, we offer this very special chapter, which is pretty much just like all the previous episodes — but more contemporary.
Unlike Robert Byrd, Ayn Rand will never die. If you’ve missed any of our previous episodes, you can catch parts one and two and three before subjecting yourself to this, Part IV.
The third installment of Wonkette’s Ayn Rand journalism comic is here! Vomit along with Ayn, by catching up with our first and second installments … only then will you be prepared for Chapter III.
