The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Muffina Winters On Self-Esteem (Censored)

ccc-86-theminstrelqboymuffytemplate

Well it looks like Muffy and The Minstrel are getting along now… We’ll see how long that lasts.

So in the last episode of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” “Buffy” gives this speech about being “cookie dough” as opposed to “cookies”.  Mostly this comic is making fun of that. There’s a good joke about “eating her” but mostly the speech seems oddly pre-prepared for the situation.

Tomorrow The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Spiderous-Man talk once again talk about self-esteem and maybe a movie coming out get mentioned. Hope you enjoy, and see ya then!

The History Of Comics With Q-boy #60 An Outlaw’s Prayer For Vengence (Censored)

The History Of Comics With Q-boy #60 An Outlaw’s Prayer For Vengence (Censored)

qbs60c

This comic is based on the work of Robert Crumb and Bobby Cakes is based on him. Robert Crumb is certainly a controversial figure, but he is undeniably a great artist.  He gained his fame mainly during the late 60’s and 70’s in the underground comics scene. The documentary about him from 1994 “Crumb” is really worth seeing if you haven’t.

The whole idea of having Q-boy Comics in this story have “7 great artists” and the whole Q-boy Comics being like “Deathrow” started with the idea of having Robert Crumb be like 2pac.  It was such a weird idea that I went with it.  Now let’s explain the panels:

  • Panel 1 is based on a panel from Crumb’s comic “My Troubles With Women” and the part in the thought bubble is based on a panel from another of his comics “The Adventures Of R. Crumb Himself” which you can check out here http://qr.net/bYtpa & here http://qr.net/bYtp2
  • Panel 2 is based on another panel from “My Troubles With Women” and a panel from another comic he did “Motor City” #2 which you can see here http://qr.net/bYtrY & here http://qr.net/bYttc
  • Panel 3 is based on a panel from a story Crumb did for “El Perfecto Comics”. The stuff in the thought balloon is based on a panel from his project from 2009 “The Book Of Genesis Illustrated” and one of the things he’s most famous for “Keep On Truckin’” a one page comic from “Zap Comix” #1 which you can check out here http://qr.net/bYtvg , here http://qr.net/bYtys , and here http://qr.net/bYtAb
  • Panel 4 is based on an unpublished cover for “Hulp Comics” (that I couldn’t do justice to the crosshatching in) which you can check out here http://qr.net/bYtEu
  • Panel 5 is based on a drawing of “Lightin’ Hopkins” from “R. Crumb’s Heroes Of Blues, Jazz, & Country” which you check out here http://qr.net/bYtCk
  • Panel 6 is based on a drawing of Crumb himself and David Zane Mairowitz from “R. Crumb’s Kafka” which you can check out here http://qr.net/bYtGf

Next time we continue with Bobby Cakes as he works with Q-boy Comics. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #91

The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Slowku On Slowku Avoiding Popularity

ccc-91-theminstrelqboyslowku

In most American comics if a superhero saves a city they become so famous they have to have a secret identity so everyone they love isn’t targeted by villains (of course their identity is always found out and all their loved ones are targeted anyways).

“Goku” saved the world if not the universe quite a few times and only a handful of people know who he is or what he did. Pretty much every time something happens or the situation makes it so people can’t see him do it.

It would be interesting to see a “what if” where people knew “Goku” saved the world. I’d imagine he’d be very uncomfortable. I’ve gotten into this before but “Goku” spends A LOT of time alone or with few people. His house is basically a shack in the woods. Also any perks of fame would be lost on “Goku”. The guy basically wears one outfit, and seems pretty happy to eat whatever he can hunt and kill. Some of these things change a bit in “Dragonball Super” but that’s clearly “Chi Chi’s” doing not his.  In real life “Goku” has a holiday and is the one of the most famous heroes in all entertainment across the globe and he’d probably hate that…

That’s it for this week. Next week we start off with a new “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” where we meet “The Outlaw”. Then new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Q-boy, Death Poll & Kill Screen On The Greatness Of Popularity (Censored)

ccc-90-qboydeathpollkillscreenc

I’ve seen a guy from “DC Comics” way “fuck “Marvel””. I’ve seen actors whine about, give excuses for, and talk about “great deleted scenes in “Suicide Squad”. I’ve seen pretty much of the whole cast of “Suicide Squad” give the middle finger the critics. What I haven’t seen is class.

For some reason “DC” especially in their movies want to to be the “bad boy”. And that just isn’t what makes “DC” what it is. All their movies so far have these awkward moments where they try to be “edgy” and it’s just weird and kinda sad. It like if the kid everyone knows is a goody two shoes all of a sudden started smoking. You would just give him the side eye as he struggles not to cough.  What makes “DC” what it is are two things. Legacy and possibility. Anything can happen in the “DC” (multi) universe even the whole thing being (repeatedly) rebooted.

Stop trying to be bad. No one’s buying it, and even if anyone did that’s not gonna make anyone like your movies. Embrace what makes you great. Let “Superman” smile, and hope really hard “Marvel” doesn’t take over “Hulu” too. Cuz’ if this “Runaways” show they got planned is half as good as the comic they will.

Tomorrow The Minstrel returns along with Q-boy and Slowku to talk about how Slowku avoids popularity. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
