In my pledge to have a more free-wheeling time with this blog, rather than take it so damn seriously with a cavalcade of whatever I’m working on, here’s something I thought up earlier tonight.
This blog has been titled “Holy Hangover, Batman” for a while now, after what I used to utter after a night out. I’m not so much into the drinking thing anymore, since I kinda like spending my money on books and comics and, you know, using my cash to produce the stuff I’m working on. Don’t get me wrong I like having a beer (or three in tonight’s case), but I don’t like being so brutally hungover the next day that I am utterly useless and can’t even function the following day. I feel like a waste of space and I have shit to do so I can’t waste a day moaning on the couch. That just sucks. It’s called being an adult, I guess.
In lieu of that, and actually trying to make the title of this blog mean something towards the content itself, I present the new series: Drinking in comic books. There’s actually a ton of drinking in mainstream superhero books so this page is from NEXTWAVE #7, written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Stuart Immonen. I love the fact that throughout the Captain’s digression about why he’s just called The Captain, Aaron Stack taps a keg into his brain. So subtle, so perfect. Drinking tally: three beers (an Ubu, an IPA, and a Barkeater Amber).
