Well, well, well, it certainly has been a big week for Homosexual Americans, now hasn't it? 1st the pro-hate Prop 8 outlawing same sex marriage is deemed unconstitutional by The Supreme Court. Duh. Incidentally, I also find bad hair unconstitutional. But, then again, I don't think of myself as very political. I don't think I could even pick Laura Bush out if a police line up.

Whitney MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

I used to make fun of my little sister for liking Whitney Houston. I thought it dorky if not reductive.


Cut to The Bodyguard soundtrack. I will always be a Dolly fan and really dug Houston's cover of Parton's cover of "I Will Always Love You." Throw in a break up with a boyfriend and it's over with! Well, and "Queen of the Night" - what girl wouldn't like that? Ironically, it was The Bodyguard director and co-star Kevin Costner that suggested Houston cover the song with an acapella intro. And, Parton famously thanked Jesus daily for the scratch she made off the royalties she made from Houston's version of her classic break up song.

Oscars MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

It's Howdy Doody time! Is that reference too dated for you, my little hatchlings? Look it up. It's actually Oscar buzz time, as the biggest night in Hollywood and the equivalent of "The Gay Super Bowl" is upon us. The biggest and most prestigious award show to recognize excellence in film. Also, the night where too much money is spent, a lot of bad jokes are told, and way too much time is wasted. A handful of people feel like winners, a ton of people feel like s#!t, and the rest of the world forgets all about it two weeks later. Woot! Woot! Bring it on!

 

Buffy S9I6The last issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9 left us with quite the cliffhanger, and this issue does not disappoint.

Talk about a dream team!

Secret Avengers 22Fanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

Secret Avengers #22
By Rick Remender, Gabriel Hardman, and Bettie Breitweiser



The Top Secret team of Avengers is back in action with a new lineup and a new leader. Hawkeye Clint Barton takes over as leader of the team as they go to investigate a new super-powered threat that’s popped up in the Middle East. Remender has a lot of exposition to get through, but he handles it nicely with a fun scene depicting the newest teammate, Captain Britain, being introduced to the team and immediately getting into an argument with Hawkeye. The big question, for everyone on the team, seems to be can Hawkeye really fill Captain America’s shoes. Hardman really brings his A game to the art with amazingly detailed line work and great layouts. His work really shines once the action starts. There is never a wasted frame as he keeps the Avengers in constant motion against their foes.  Secret Avengers is a strong addition to the already impressive Avengers line, and Remender and Hardman have distinguished their book with a unique look and an intriguing premise.


 

Batwoman52 Catch Up is a series devoted to looking at issues from DC's New 52 and seeing how they're faring now that they're underway, why they're worth reading (or not), and places we hope they will go in time.

 

Concept:
The introduction in each issue sums up who Batwoman is better than I ever could:

 

Kate Kane survived a brutal kidnapping by terrorists that left her mother dead and her twin sister lost.  Following in her father's footsteps, she vowed to serve her country and attended West Point until she was expelled under “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.” Now, she is many things: estranged daughter, grieving sister, proud lesbian, brave soldier, determined hero.  She is Batwoman.


Previously on Batwoman: Covering to the end of Hydrology: Issues #1 - #5

 

SPOILER WARNING!

Dr. Disco MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Up is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value. And, neither does revisiting Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Holy Grail of funny books with a sequel. What could be bigger blasphemy than trying to make a film version of the sacred comic tome Watchmen without Alan Moore's blessing or involvement? Why, making a mega-event prequel to Watchmen without Alan Moore's involvement or consent, of course.
