character-quotes-imageAmy wasn’t the woman for you,” Boyd said, staring at his friend’s image in the mirror.

Why? Cause she wouldn’t put out?”

No, man. Because you need a woman who stimulates your brain, not just your ‘nads.”

Well, not getting much of that either, thanks for pointing it out. I feel so much better.”

Oh, stop.”

For a psychologist, you’re completely oblivious.”

I see a lot more than you give me credit for.” Boyd folded massive arms across his broad chest. “For example….” He pressed his lips together, gazing intently at his friend. “You missed a spot right there.” He poked Quaid in the neck, just over his Adam’s apple.

Character Quotes from Conduct Unbecoming by Dellani

Cereal Authors

conduct front cover“That was a sophisticated device, Chief. Not your basic home grown shit. Whoever set that knew what he was doing.”

“He missed his target anyway,” the chief said, watching the flames.

“Did he? If his point was the scare that man, he was successful.”

“You don’t think he was trying to kill him?”

The arson inspector shook his head, shrugging. “I really doubt it. If you want someone dead, shoot his ass.”

“A bomb’s effective, isn’t it? Nothing says I hate you like an explosion in the fridge. Besides, they tried to make it look like an accident using the propane.”

The inspector shook his head. “I’m not so sure. The man who built that bomb did it in such a way that pieces were left. He had to know we’d figure out it wasn’t an accident. No, he meant for Quartermain to stay alive, but terrified.”

“Think he did…

Miss Mary Mack

The sound of little girls giggling and playing a hand clapping game could be heard all the way up to Old Man Oscar’s porch: “Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack…All dressed in black, black, black….She wore her buttons all down her back, back, back…”

“Whacha know ‘bout Miss Mary?” said the old man rocking while the children clapped along. Looking at him one of the little girls answered, “It’s just a song, there’s no Miss Mary!”

“Girl hush! I tell y’all it’s true, there was a Miss Mary and she used to run that ol’ orphanage near LaGrange road.”

Thinking these were just the ramblings of an old man, the girls continued to play on. Meanwhile a skeptical little boy asked, “Oh yeah, how come I ain’t never heard of no Miss Mary?” Seeing a little bit of himself in the boy, the old man answered…

Review:

Suicide Squad (2016-) #16 - Rob Williams, Tomeu Morey, Tony Daniel, Sandu Florea

Thank you for not turning Superman into a Nazi.   (Although Red Son, although that was very clearly an AU.   Thank you for not turning him into a Nazi in the regular verse, then telling us all how amazing this is, and trying to get real people to dress up as nazis.)   Thank you for offering a non-politicized option since apparently the only other options seem to be leaning far to the left or far to the right. 

 

Thank you for focusing on characters and exciting stories and well drawn comics.   (And as much as I love Jim Lee and his details, I find myself far more drawn to Daniel’s work as a penciler: a little smoother and less busy and I love the way he portrays Harley Quinn.)   More than that, I love the writing: the reason that Waller is going to Lex Luthor, for one.   I was surprised not only at what she wanted from him, but also why she wanted it.   It should have seemed obvious, but the storyline was dropped for a while and I thought even Waller wouldn’t do this, even though they were setting it up from last issue.  I thought someone would talk her out of it, a certain superhero would discourage her, something, but not this…

 

Things are going to get so, so interesting for the Squad.   And I plan to be there when they do.   This issue also seems to be the first one that isn’t broken up into two parts – and while it worked when they were doing background, at least for me, a lot of fans complained.   I don’t know if that’s what stopped them because they continued breaking it up, which I found a distraction when it seemed like they were really trying to tell one story in two parts once they’d dropped the backstories.   The real problem was that the two halves didn’t necessarily line up as neatly as the writer tried to make them, at least not for me.   But with one, clean story, Williams has upped his game, and I’m finding myself most excited for this series for now.

Character Quotes from Heirs of Shakazhan by Dellani

March 31, 2017 by dellanioakes

Heirs of Shakazhan front

Heirs of Shakazhan is book six in the Lone Wolf Series. Sorry, it’s not out yet, but I’m working on it! Wil and Matilda have just had a spooky late night visitor, an apparition which, they reckon, is a telepathic projection. It attacks Mariah, their daughter, first and goes after her nanny. Wil tries to fight it but can’t, but with Matilda, it’s another story. She fights the entity—and wins. It leaves her shaken.

“He was incredibly powerful, wasn’t he?” his question hung between them unanswered for several minutes.

Matilda didn’t seem to be listening, but suddenly she shook herself and looked in his eyes.

“Powerful? Yes. He is quite adept at projecting himself over great distance. I’m still not sure how he does it or how far away he is….”

“Do you know who he is?”

She looked surprised, her eyes going wide. A slow smile crept across her features as she gazed at him.

“What?” He looked around nervously. This was the precise feeling he got when confronted with a lynch mob.

“You mean you don’t?”

Wil shrugged. Matilda chuckled, shaking her head in wonder. She looked self-satisfied and very cheeky, Wil thought.

“Well? Are you going to share?”

“I’m savoring this moment. It’s not often I know something you don’t.”

“Matilda….” His tone was ominous, his manner intimidating.
