It Came From The Interwebs: Pizza Dance, Widowmaker Hamburger, Fun with Cartography

With a jetpack fueled by insomnia and an easily amused mind, It Came From the Interwebs scours and sifts through everything that has ever appeared on the internet (more or less) to find a few things that you should know about every week. These things come from the interwebs, hence the clever name.

This week: The Pizza Dance, The Widowmaker Hamburger, a Trippy PSA, the Ugly Duckling, and Fun with Cartography!

NeverRants: Destroying Comics For Fun And Profit

I spotted this little tidbit on Bleeding Cool and was compelled to write something.

Superworld Comics is a store in Massachusetts that specializes in bronze, silver, and golden age comics and original comic art. On their YouTube channel, they have a feature called “Trash-A-Comic.” The title is pretty self-explanatory. Every episode, they destroy a comic book from their back-stock in what they insist are fun and creative ways for, one can only assume, the entertainment of their customers.

Because comic book fans — especially collectors of mint and slabbed comics — LOVE seeing those books destroyed.

In their first episode, they shot an issue of Classics Illustrated: Kidnapped to pieces with a paint gun.

In their second episode, they fed a near-mint issue of Dazzler to a couple of pigs before having it pecked by chickens.

In their third episode, they ripped an issue of Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories in half, put it in a blender, turned it into a smoothie, and drank it while toasting, “Here’s to the end of another worthless comic.”

In their fourth episode, they rolled over a CGC slabbed issue of Shazam with a steam shovel and fed it into a wood chipper.

Laughing all the way.

Comic Review: Donald Duck and Friends #351

Donald Duck and Friends #351
Written by Fausto Vitaliano and Marco Bosco
Art by Marco Mazzarello and Franco D’Ippolito
BOOM! Studios
Release date: February 24, 2010

Remember the days when Donald Duck wasn’t as much of a talker as he was a loud and angry quacker? Well those days are all over. In BOOM! Studios’ Donald Duck and Friends #351, Donald Duck has been re-imagined as a secret agent, working among other secret birds in an attempt to retrieve a disk full of code names from an international criminal named Marlo Burke, all while dealing with a fellow agent named Kay and a pair of crooked agents named B.Berry and B.Black.

To tell you the truth, I was surprised with the complexity of the Donald Duck and Friends comic. The plot was a maze of crossings and double-crossing that could match with any classic spy thriller, from Mission: Impossible to Ronan. For a kid’s comic, it was surprisingly sophisticated. Yet the writers Fausto Vitaliano and Marco Bosco still maintain the cartoonish elements. Donald Duck is still constantly getting in trouble with his cartoon girlfriend Daisy Duck, and he still drives that bright red cartoon jalopy, even though everyone around him drives modern cars.
