You Say Yes

You Say Yes published on 3 Comments on You Say Yes

Had Conan lived in an age with “Ghostbusters” and “Skyrim” I suspect, if he’d been honest with himself, he would have added them to his list of what is best in life–I don’t think they’d have beaten out enemy crushing, but they’re both way better than women lamenting.

But of course, I’m Jack the Civil and he’s Conan the Barbarian so maybe I’m just projecting.

This may very well be one of my favorite comics. We’ve got some nice Easter Eggs in there too for those with an eye for detail. First the entire comic plays on a quote from, that most quotable of movies, “Ghostbusters.” ┬áHere’s the scene, you’re welcome.

Panel 3 has a very nice pile of bones that was once Xavier’s cat–we’ll call her Stalker. In real-life my brother is both really into his cat and Skyrim, though to my knowledge she’s still with us. The second is a little homage to one of my comic heroes Bugs Bunny.

Panel 4 you’ll notice that Xavier has just finished making a deposit into one of his pee bottles. To my knowledge the real life Xavier has plumbing, but he is a bachelor so I’m not willing to say he hasn’t made a trucker bomb in his recliner. Admit it gentlemen, the temptation is strong.

Panel 5 Xavier has tissue boxes on his feet. I’ll avoid the obvious tissue joke here. On another note, man can Jim draw a grizzled hobo-looking guy. Well done partner!

Well that’s it for this week. Make sure to share us with your friends and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Cheers,

From Season 5, Episode 10:” $pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)”

Mr. Burns: Ah, my beloved plant. How I miss her…Bah! To Hell with this! Get my razors! Draw a bath! Get these Kleenex boxes off my feet!
Smithers: Certainly, sir. And, uh, the jars of urine?
Mr. Burns: Oh, we’ll hang onto those.

You’re just jealous that your simpering weakling is nothing compared to my unstoppable juggernaut. Like an unholy hybrid of Dumbledore and Darth Vader he rules the mage’s college and crushes dragons with 3 blows of his blighted mace. Kings will bow at his feet and even time bends with an utterance.

And Stalker is great. More powerful and beautiful than all of your cats combined. A feline Galadriel the likes of which the world has never seen.
