   THE ART OF TATTOOS Odd question to ask during a comic review but hey, I’m an odd guy. Do you remember that episode of Futurama? The death by snu-snu one?

WE’RE ALL EFFECTED… This past week, where I live in Pennsylvania, we’ve seen the after effects of a tropical storm. We’re currently gearing up to experience the after effects of another.

DON’T YOU HATE IT WHEN… Do you remember when they first announced that the supposed Man of Steel sequel was actually called Batman vs Superman?

LET’S BE HONEST! I’ve started this review and erased quite a few times. Quite frankly, I don’t even know really where to start with this book. For the past couple of years, DC has introduced us to these Looney Tunes crossover books. I’ve only read a few and honestly, they are super hit or miss. I wasn’t quite sure what …
