    March 17, 2009 8:14 am It seems like every X book is coming out this week (Uncanny, Legacy, X-Factor, X-Force, ....). I remember when they used to ship a different title every week as opposed to one big X-dump. Oh well...

    Clearly, this guy is taking the piss...

    @ ohcaroline - I'm not dismissing these kids at all (I hope I didn't come across that way). I'm stoked that these kids come in to my classroom with a 700 page book and then tell me that they are on their second or third readthroughs. I'm guessing this is roughly the equivalent of all the Final Crisis issues, tie-ins, and wiki entries :). My comment was more about the students who will read nothing else BUT those books - and again, there's nothing wrong with that. At least they're reading...

    Whenever I go out to dinner with my brother, he will always order the same dish at the same restaurant. When I ask him why, he responds, "If I want something different, I'll go to a different restaurant." I guess it's kind of like that.

    I am an English teacher  (my students are at lunch right now) and I can verify that the only books I see kids reading are Harry Potter and Twilight. Hell, they'll read the books in the Twilight series seven or eight times. When I ask them why, they usually say it's because they like the story. I use that as an opportunity to suggest other novels - y'know, there's more than one good story, right? I've turned quite a few of my students on to Orwell, Rand, and Shakespeare as a result.

    I've also used comics as a teaching device - in terms of plot structure, characterization, dialogue, even basic grammar. Thank God for those 10 cent DC comics and 9 cent Marvels. I bought a ton of those to use in the classroom. I even had kids design their own mini graphic novels for a semester project.

    Now if only I could convince my prinicipal to let me teach an elective class with Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns...

    February 9, 2009 4:46 pm @stuclach - awesome. I only wish some of my students were hardcore Q-ma fans... It seems they're all rabid anti-Commanites.
    January 29, 2009 12:18 pm @mikegraham6: That's right - I forgot her name was Eloise. Well, it all seems fairly obvious now, huh? I mean, the Farraday/mom thing, not the whole bloody show...
    January 29, 2009 8:36 am @ mikegraham6: I'm trying to remember if Hawkings (the old time-monitoring woman) had a similar hairstyle to the young girl who was holding Faraday at gunpoint. If so, that could definitely support your theory (provided Hawkings is his mother). There's definitely a connection there.
    December 15, 2008 8:01 pm How badass is that scene with him flying towards the chopper?

    To me, Joe Kelly's Deadpool is the definitive take on the character. That being said, I do enjoy Way's delusional moments with Wade.
