Yum, I want, thanks.  If they're not too greasy.  Maybe if I skip the fries...

So Sarge, personal question for you:  why not Sgt. Fury?

The Fury comic first appeared after my comic book reading days were over. Rock, though, was part of my childhood.

the phone rings and somebody says,
"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Someone told me once that DC and Marvel Comics teamed-up once for a story about Rock and Fury working together on a mission.  Never seen it though.

 ;) Undeservedly, and imperiling its future, Classical Music carries that cross.  Some of the most "highbrow and pretentious" discussions I've ever been witness to - bar none and that includes some lofty lit & critical theory classes - have been among Donald Duck and Unca Scrooge comic fans.  Sophisticated literary allusions, deconstruction, philosophy, psychological analyses, alternative history, nothing is beyond these cats.  Same is true of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans (a series which continues btw in comic book form).

Yes, I know exactly what you mean. Lit crit pond scum and Buffyologists. They are the kind that give bullshit a bad name.

To be fair, there is some depth in e.g. Carl Barks's Donald Duck / Uncle Scrooge comics.
