“I am a moron.”
-- Ira Steven Behr, on using Brigadoon as a model for a DS9 episode.
I feel like I should start this review with one of my meandering, digressive paragraphs about some aspect of writing. I can’t. Why? I hate this episode. Seriously, hate it. Like normal folks hate lines at the DMV or people who say “hella.” I’d be tempted to just have this review be one long string of curses, but cursing at Fanboy Comics tends to read like Morse Code, and I don’t want to summon any boats.

Do you remember those awesome, choose-your-own-adventure novels from back in the day, where you would reach a point in the novel and have to make a choice? You might turn left and get eaten by a dragon, or turn right and defeat an evil king, taking his treasure. The story could go in any number of directions and was different every time. Well, comic creator Ben Bishop is developing a new graphic novel that will incorporate that choose-your-own-adventure style of storytelling, and he’s taken his idea to Kickstarter to secure funding and make a really awesome new book called The Aggregate. Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Jason Enright interviewed Bishop about the new project.

Geekery has a tendency to spread. Unlike measles, this is generally a good thing. As your interests gravitate toward one end of geekery, whether it’s tabletop strategy games, obscure cult cinema from the ‘80s, or the comedy stylings of Monty Python, chances are that the friends you will gain will educate you on one or all of the parts that you missed. Seriously, there was a point in the ‘80s where you couldn’t have a D&D game without a spontaneous recitation of the Knights Who Say Ni. It was . . . exhausting.
