I think it was Hitchcock who said, “The greater the villain, the greater the story.” Heroes may have top billing, but it is the villain of the story that truly captivates us. Whether they are masters of the elements, embracers of chaos, split personalities, or silver spoon Caesar wannabes, they have great power over us. They enlist our dark sides, transform our obsessions, and make us question our morals and sense of self.
So, what would they want to drink as their nightcap? I took the liberty of matching four of my favorite villains with what I think their beverage of choice would be. It is not often that I get to combine my interest in comics with my interest in spirits!

As an out and proud gay man, I am contractually obligated to worship The Wizard of Oz, so it would stand to reason that I would in turn like Oz The Great and Powerful. Well, I didn't like Oz The Great and Powerful- I LOVED IT!!! I remember seeing the posters months ago. Sam Raimi? Oz? Sign me up!

The devil's in the details. Ain't that the truth? It's also the name of the recently released collection of Todd McFarlane's art from his 3-decade-spanning career. I was excited when Image announced the illustrated biography of Todd McFarlane in hardcover. Not so excited about the price tag. I got $99.00 and Tood McFarlane ain't one of them.

As a result of the fallout from Avengers vs. X-Men and perhaps an answer to DC's much ballyhooed New 52, The Uncanny X-Men received a new number one and a bold new direction. Again. A new direction, with a new roster and new creative team seems old hat by now for the X-Men. So, here we go again with Uncanny X-Men with Brian Michael Bendis writing, not so fresh feeling considering his lengthy stint on Ultimate X-Men and Chris Bachalo on art again. No complaints there, as he is always a welcome addition; however, I would love to see him spread his wings and maybe get back to his indie roots. (But, hey, if I got to draw X-Men, they'd have to claw me off the book with a pair of razor sharp adamantiums.)
