What's not to love about cartoons? From Calvin & Hobbes, to the Peanuts, to superhero comics of Superman and Spider-man, back to Looney Tunes. Cartoons have been my life since I was a baby. Until fourth grade, I wanted to be an inventor like Doc Brown, but I had no sense of mechanics or math or anything one would need to actual invent anything. But I drew everything. It was only a matter of time before I fully embraced my drawing. Since then I've created characters like Tick, cartoon T.C. & Jason, and countless others.

Hmmm... A couple of negative responses to this one. I post dozens of comics, and this is the one that gets the grief.
I wasn't looking to offend. I was just thinking that this many beefed up on steroids and oiled up dudes might be a bit... gay. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that whatsoever. I just thought it was a bit... over compensating, like the really tough football player who goes a bit further than necessary when picking on the effeminate boy in high school or the U.S. Senator who is a loud and overly critical voice against the legalization of gay marriage. Over compensating. Just saying.

Who is Andy directing there? Why it's none other than Ben. Or rather it's Andy's recasting one of the former main character of "Not Enough Hours in the Day". I wonder if anyone will notice. Or even more difficult: will anyone recognize a blonde Dave from "Hours"? That'll be really impressive.

At first glance, Salt seems to be an attempt to make a Jason Bourne for the ladies. And, well, it's exactly that. It's the idea of a bad ass "realistic" super-spy, but with boobs. There have been other female action heroes like Sydney Bristow or La Femme Nikita, so this isn't a new idea. But there are not a lot of these female action hero types. Why is that?. Is it because we as a culture are more willing to watch a man blow up stuff and shoot countless inept enemies? Seems like it. But who am I? There are far smarter folks out there to discuss this topic. Me? I'm a guy who draws comics about movies, pop culture, and fart jokes.
And that brings us to this weeks entry into the tcomics universe and two new characters for the pantheon. I think I got Ms. Jolie pretty well, but I had some trouble with Mr. Damon. I'm expecting at least one person to guess that it's Brad Pitt. Either way, the joke still works. One thing I do know women will always be able to do what men can't: ovulate.
