Before I’m accused of being a sourpuss, I want to emphatically state for the record that I loved A-Babies Vs X-Babies. It was a really great book that can be enjoyed on a lot of levels and you know what? It was a damn fun read.
With the terms “dark and gritty” being thrown around so much these days, it’s nice to be able to take a step back and have fun with a book like A-Babies Vs X-Babies. It’s one of the reasons that I’ve become so interested in Silver Age comics in the last few years. The stories are so far out there and just downright fun and silly, you can’t help but have a great time reading them. I like dark and edgy as much as the next guy, but darn if it isn’t nice to just have fun with a comic once in a while.
I’ve also really been digging the Skottie Young baby variants. In a lot of cases, much like the “Art Appreciation” variants, they are making me look twice at titles that I normally wouldn’t pay any attention to. Which, I suppose, is the point.
Also, effective immediately, I will punctuate the ending of all meetings, conversations and e-mails by flipping over a table.
You have been warned.
