I am finally cured of my geek existential crisis, due to The Brave and the Bold, of all things. It’s written by Mark Waid*, who I would gladly follow off a cliff so long as he left a trail of comic book pages, but holy cow, I laughed through this entire thing. No–not laughed, giggled. I, the cynical little nerdling, giggled throughout this book.
I don’t know what earns you a geek card more than giggling through a Catwoman/Superman team-up. Even Commissioner Gordon’s two-page appearance was wonderful, when he wondered aloud at a superhero who was actually polite.
Or finding 22 comics for a little over a buck apiece. Now that’s a good day.
Now I’m going to go try and read Alan Moore’s Promethea again (last time I quite after the first volume), so let’s see how long this elation lasts.
*Seriously. My favorite comics writer like, ever.
