    Ultimate Warrior: THAT'S RIGHT HOAKOGAN!! THE TUPPERWARES OF VICTORY HAVE BEEN FILLED!! AND THE PUMA GOD, IN THEIR HOLY SPACESHIP, HAVE SENT THE POWER OF THE WARRIORS TO FOKE AT ARBY'S!!!
    Linkara: Damn it! Not you!
    Ultimate Warrior: WILL YOU NOT MEET THE CHALLENGE OF THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR??!! I WILL PARACHUTE IN FROM THE WATERS OF THE SUN TO WRESTLEMANIA, HOAKOGAN, AND THERE I WILL UNITE THE POWER OF THE HULKAMANIACS WITH THE POWER OF THE WARRIOR AND TOGETHER THEY WILL BE DESTRUCILICIOUS!!!

    64: Scarlett # 1 

    65: Future Five # 1 
  • "By the way, our professor Nightbird is a Native American. How do we know he is? Why, that Native American pendant! Judging by the symbol on it, he's obviously a member of the…uh, Nativo Americano tribe."
  • His mocking of the characters' descriptions:
    Narrator: Chef — Whips up powerful combinations of food and spices to combat evil.
    Linkara: Yes, the forces of evil quake in fear of his oregano cannon.

  • Chef: Professor.
    Professor: Yes?
    Chef: WHASSUUUUUUUP?
    Linkara: Wow, that doesn't make this thing dated at all! (laughs) Oh wait, this was made in 2005. It was dated even when it came out. (beat) Smooth.

    "Wasp, goin' to eat you up."
    Valkyrie: Listen up, you bitch. I knew a girl like you in high school. Played all the boys 'cause she was this hottie. She even went after a guy I liked.
    Linkara (as Valkyrie): And that girl's name was Bella Swan!
    • From part 2
    Linkara: BY DIEHARDS CROTCH! GOOD GOD WOMAN WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH YOUR SPINE?
  • From Part 3:
    • Mechakara's excuse for wearing the gloves is that he got into an argument with a hot plate.
    • This moment:
    Robo-Yellowjacket (To Wasp): "I'd rather not kill you, Jan. My experimentation on your DNA has only begun. Besides, you're almost like a mother to me."
    Hank Pym: "Then I guess that makes me *rips off the robot's head* THE MOTHER***KER!"
    Linkara: "I don't think they're going to let you call yourself that in the toy line."
    • Wrapping up all the plot holes at the end.
    "Well, that was certainly an enjoyable ride, wasn't it? Ultimates 3 wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I mean, really, what can one question about it?" *Inhales deeply* "What was the point of making the goo look like venom?! Why the sex tape scandal?! In fact, what scandal whatsoever?! It's still mentioned in like two pages! Why was Wolverine even in the story?! What was the point of Caesar's flashback?! Why did Captain America dress up like the Black Panther?! Why is Tony Stark still pining for the Black Widow when he was over her at the end of Ultimates 2?! Why did they let Hawkeye on the team when he's clearly unbalanced?! Why was Pietro a bigger threat according to Wolverine?! Why the flashback to when Logan met Magda?! Why did the robot assassinate Wanda when it was Quicksilver who declared his love?! How did Hank Pym recover from being drugged?! What was the point of the revelation of Wanda's reality warping powers?! If the robots have bullets that can target specific DNA, why don't they ever use them anywhere else?! Why did Doctor Doom do any of this junk?! DEAR GOD, THIS COMIC SUCKS!!!"
    69: Youngblood # 2

  • The final showdown with Black Lantern Spoony. "I'm not in your fucking way! Oh Jesus Christ, I think I just broke my foot in your ass!"

    • Linkara's first reaction to finding himself tied up. "Oh, great. What did Bennett find this time?"
    • Linkara using the I AM A MAN punch on Mechakara. It doesn't work, and he clutches his hand in pain and shouts, "Why, why, WHY do I always try to punch robots?! It never works!"
    • When Linkara puts in a plug for the prop guy who made his Green Ranger dagger, Mechakara gets even more annoyed.
      Mechakara: Are you honestly doing a commercial in the middle of your review?
      Linkara: Screw you, hippy! He gave me a discount!
    • "Now back to that delightful Chocolate Rain song! And then I shall go and listen to why we should leave Britney alone! AHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!"
    • "Oh hai, robot version of me."
    • "Cesiumfrancolithicmyxialobidiumrixydixydoxidexidroxhide, yaaaaaay!!!"

    71: Strange Adventures # 136 
  • "Wow, this situation is really getting serious. I'd better switch to my serious hat!

  • Linkara taking Liefeld's cereal metaphor and twisting it to fit his purposes.
  • The ending, where Dr. Linksano is catching up on this universe's Dr. Insano, finds out he got his Anti-Magic Field Generator Kit to work, and vows revenge. Cue Pollo telling him to be quiet, and Linkara assumes 90's Kid is crashing in his storage room yet again, so he turns on the poison gas...

    73: X-Men # 1 
  • His review of X-Men #1. Particularly the Running Gag over Professor Xavier's attempt to justify his school budget's more... unorthodox items to the loan officer.
    "Also, this thing about exploding robots...what's that all about?"
    • Likewise, his impersonation of Rogue and Magneto.
    Magneto: Uh, Rogue, why are you cocking your hip to one side?
    Rogue:Oh, that's 'cause I'm like fish. When I'm up in the air flyin', I have to push my hips from side to side in order to move!
    Magneto:But… then why are you standing like that?
    • "Honk if you like pancakes!"
    • His shock at the artwork of Gambit and Beast coming out of the plane.
      • "AHHH! When did Beast and Gambit get possessed!"
    • "Cyclops! How DARE you engage in good-natured ribbing, you're supposed to be an asshole!"

  • 90s Kid pointing how awesome it would be if Bludwolf's mohawk could decapitate people.

    75: The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 2 
  • "Ok, who captured Missingno?"
  • "What do you want from me, Jay Leno? Why are you staring at me?!"
  • The ending where Pollo tells Linkara that "some mad scientist" (IE: Linksano) is plotting his downfall. Linkara responds with-
    Linkara: Who the hell cares! They made ANOTHER issue of Sultry Teenage Super Foxes! (Screams in horror at the comic in his hand).
  • In attempting to do a serious analysis, he puts on the brainy specs and holds the book upside down.
  • "Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, moron."
  • Don't forget this funny bit:
    Manga looking newscaster girl: Hugely large alien spaceship attack whole big planet!!! Coming up next on Super Manga Giant Big News!! Now, baby, tonight!!! I'm cool and hard-boiled!!
    Linkara: Oh, how I wish Sailor Moon would just walk out, twirl around fifty times and release a whole bunch of sparkly things to make this end.
  • In response to Superman and Wonder Woman's "relationship"
    Wonder Woman: Where is the man who stole my Amazon heart? Where is the hero who who threw me to the ground and took me as his rightful prize?
    Linkara: *indignant fury*
    SNL 'Hardball' Sketch: "I'm gonna go ahead and assume you know why that's stupid and move on..."
  • When Batman talks about Carrie's plan to use a concert to start a revolution.
    Batman: I never would've conceived it. Not in a million years.
    Linkara: Of course not. Your undying hatred of rock n' roll would never allow you to take advantage of a concert Batman.

    76: Sultry Teenage Super-Foxes # 2 
  • " Mechakara! It's Morphing Time!" (fails to find morpher).
  • Mechakara lampshading its own status as Ensemble Dark Horse.
  • So it was all a dream... they didn't really make a second issue of... (notices what he's holding in his hand, starts hyperventilating, screams in fear... only to cut to the theme song)
  • "Cornered by the fourth wall-breakers"/"Can Whatshername get out of this corner?"/"You stay in that corner and think about what you've done, young lady!"

  • "Oh god, I'm in Sultry Teenage Super Foxes! Somebody get me outta here!"
  • "It's almost as if women were people or somethin'!"
  • "We suspect that [women] are actually some kind of butter."
  • "No screams for ice cream? I imagine if I was a hellish woman inflicting terror upon my co-pilot, I would go for some Häagen-Dazs."
  • "Heh, heh. I have no way of controlling them, no way of proving that they have this power I claim they do, and they could easily roast me, toast me and burn me to a crisp if they so desired. Damn, I got it sweet."
  • "Naturally, two of the girls laugh out loud at the suggestion. And why wouldn't they? After all, it's not like they sparkle or are creepy stalkers, like real vampires."
  • "Man, this is the worst episode of Law & Order ever."
  • Continuously referring to the alien mothership as a "Space Calzone".
  • "Poor Linkara, having to read this tripe!"
  • "Oh my god, I want that hair!"
  • "Yeah, what an asshole! Going out with another woman even you clearly established earlier that you weren't even dating and that he was just being nice to you, especially since you're not even eighteen years old! ...wait, what?"
  • "No! Less! Less! Less!"

    77: Star Trek/X-Men # 1 
  • His 30-second summary of the second Star Trek episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before"- "I AM THE GOD! I AM THE GOD!"
    • "Watch me move this Styrofoam cup!" * cup moves with a humming noise* "ISN'T THAT AWESOME?!"
    • Or this exchange:
      Dehner: So what if he's got godlike powers? Maybe he's really nice and having godlike powers will help the species and he WON'T try to take over the universe!
      Kirk: Lady, you've just totally reinvented stupid.
    • From that same review, Pollo in a hilariously oversized Starfleet uniform, singing the "Star Trekkin'" song.
    • "The planet starts tearing itself apart..."
      Johnny: You're tearing me apart, Lisa!
  • Linkara's suggestion, probably correct, that the entire point of the crossover was to put Beast and Bones in a room together and have someone call out "Dr McCoy!"

    78: Athena # 1 
  • "They should have just called this Athena's Butt, it gets more panel time than her!"

    79: JLA - Act of God Part 01 
  • From JLA Act of God - Part 1:
    Linkara: At the bar of Guy Gardner, former Green Lantern, then former superhero called Warrior...
    Ultimate Warrior: Load the spaceship with the rocket fuel, load it with the words!
    Linkara: Dammit, not that Warrior!
    • "Maybe I'll put salami on my sandwich. ...and maybe not."
    • "Maxi-extreme ultra normal."
    • The continuity alarm's message when it finally goes off near the end.
    Linkara: Oh, what, now is when you decide to pipe up?
    Continuity Alarm: (via text) You switched me off before the review. I'm back, baby!

    80: JLA - Act of God Part 02 
  • "Previously On the Act of God review: Superheroes lost their powers. The Martian Manhunter said that losing their powers is great; ergo, he's an idiot. Kyle Rayner, despite his ring being technology, has lost the ability to use his ring and is obsessed with getting it back; ergo, he's an idiot. Superman is sitting on his couch; ergo, he's an idiot. And Steel is dead; ergo, he's dead."
  • In part 2, when Kyle is still wangsting about the loss of his powers:
    Kyle: Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
    Neighbor: Shut up! We're trying to sleep! Go whine about your superpowers somewhere else!
    • Linkara punching the comic.
    • In response to Lois leaving Superman after he loses his powers:
    Linkara: (to the continuity alarm) You gonna give me trouble if I talk about this?
    Continuity Alarm: *Nah, this comic's too much for me. I'm gonna sit the rest of this one out.*
    Linkara: Goodie. (deep breath) "BUUUUUULLLLLLLL. CRAAAAAAAAAAAAP!" (goes on long rant about the nature of Clark Kent and his relationship with Lois to demonstrate just how bad the Character Derailment is)
    • "Were we too arrogant, Clark-" "NO. YOU WEREN'T. SHUT UP."
    • "Just look at Superman here, trying to seal that dam. You can just tell that he's thinking 'Hot damn, it's awesome to be exalted by humanity. I feel just like God. Maybe I should let this dam burst just to spite them all!'"
    • "I have Booster Gold's entire first series in my hand, and I assure you he didn't save Ronald Reagan's life just for cash! ...Though it did help."
    • I'm an alien, no-one understands me, wah, wah, wah!
  • "Dear Lord, I feel like I should be saying everybody's dialogue in the Superboy Prime voice."
  • As Wally West starts talking about alcoholism all of a sudden...
    Aquaman: WE ARE NOT ALCOHOLICS!
    Linkara-as-Aquaman: WE CAN STOP WHENEVER WE WANT!

    81: JLA - Act of God Part 03 
  • "Let's dig into 'Batman: Act of God Part 3 starring Batman'"
  • His entire response to Act of God Part 3, with him declaring himself never having been this angry since Superman: At Earth's End.
    • Leading to another funny moment: his near insanity thanks to Dr. Linksano's "Black Light Event Generator".
  • The reaction to seeing Wonder Woman praying to the Christian god, despite the facts that her whole origin story is heavily based on the Greek mythology, and she frequently invokes the Greek pantheon.
    Linkara: Y' know, this comic is actually quite the argument for Satan's existence!
  • Linkara comparing Doug Moench's knowledge of all non-Batman characters to his knowledge of Greek line dances, which is nothing.
  • "Maybe the powers were a crutch." "(to the tune of Westminster Chimes) WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. YOU'RE WRONG."
    • Hell, ANY gag-clip involving/relating to calling out the comic's stupidity.
  • "Nine, eight, seven, si- BOOOM." "You said 'ten seconds'." "Nobody's perfect, professor."
  • "While the power of heroes may fade, it can never die... except for, you know, when Superman became a drunk, and Wonder Woman became a Catholic, and Guy Gardner became a shill, and Billy Batson became a radio announcer, and Blue Beetle and Booster Gold sold their tech, and Green Lantern became an obsessed freak... you know, besides for all of that."
    • He actually says this line and pauses for a beat before his closing rant. The contrast between these two extremes cannot be any greater, because he goes from his mock "narrator" voice to bringing up the comics and loudly screaming "THESE! COMICS! SUCK!!!" at the drop of a hat. There's just something so amusing about that certain disconnect between the moods.
  • When complaining about the heroes' Wangst:
    Wonder Woman: Reduced to the level of those over whom we once towered.
    Linkara: No, let me say that again.
    Wonder Woman: (in Superboy Prime voice) Reduced to the level of those over whom we once towered.

    82: TMNT Meets Archie 

    83: Lunatik # 1 
  • During Linkara's usual review of the comic's cover:
    Cover: He's rude and crude and stronger than a bull elephant!
    Linkara: So we're probably not going to find him working in data entry.
    Cover: And he's coming to your world!
    Linkara: Lunatik— live and in concert!
  • Lunat!k #1; 'Because poor literacy is- (Beat)- COMPLETELY NONSENSICAL
  • During Thanos' cameo appearance:
    Narrator: Thanos, the spurned lover of Death. Thanos, former keeper of the Reality Gem. Thanos, who was once a god.
    Linkara!Narrator: Thanos, who has nothing to do with this comic. Wouldn't you rather be reading about him? Well, tough cookies; you get Lunat!k, suckers!
    • The shout-out to Kickassia happening that same week.
    "That's a good idea! Let's take a little vacation, I'll finish the review when I get back."
    Three months later...
    (Linkara sits back down) "They caught up with me outside Molossia."

    84: Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos # 1 
  • "That's why I printed this huuuuuuuuuuge picture of you. HATE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!!!! * Beat* Marry me."
  • He comments on the logo of the comic with words "Chuck Norris" taking up a third of the page and on the superhero-like outfit of Chuck Norris. He continues with "Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe this won't be an ego trip for old Chucky." Cue the first page with a thought bubble "Chuck Norris is the best!"
    Linkara: Well, that didn't take long.
  • When Too Much prays for something to save him from having to talk about the book he hasn't read - the Cult of the Klaw attack the school.
    Linkara (acting overjoyed): Thank God - TERRORISTS!
  • The return of Ninja Style Dancer, as an example of a REAL ninja, instead of the losers in the comic. "You make me feel like dancing..."
  • His rant at the end of the video, in which he says how Chuck Norris is overrated as an "All-Seeing Badass God"... which ends with him saying: "Besides, we all know Mr. T has more superpowers than Chuck Norris!"
  • His comment on the use of "Bammo!" as an Unsound Effect.

    Warrior 2- 3 
  • The reveal that Dr. Linksano is one of the Schlumper brothers from Spoony's Party Mania review.
  • "You're giving the slash ficcers material!" lampshading the Foe Yay that many will be pointing out.
    • Not to mention that in this universe, both Linkara and Spoony are Johnny from The Room. The outtakes take it even further, with both of them improvising further lines in-character after a mistake.
  • Pretty much all of the battle royale at the end, from the Robotic Grabby Thing Mark Two to Dr. Bearsano.
  • The Shout-Out to 1408.
    "We've Only Just Begun" starts playing
    Insano: Kill it! Keel et! Keel et! {Attacks radio}
  • Warrior!Spoony's confrontation with Dr. Hulksano:
    Hulksano: Whatcha gonna do when I unleash these 24-inch pythons of SCIENCE on you, dude?!
  • The review continues the proud tradition of random time-dimension crossover cameos... with a few twists.
    • Angry Joe rants angrily about the section he has just read, only to be revealed to be neither Linkara nor Insano. He just snuck in.
      Angry Joe: My GOD this comic blows! I can't believe anyone let this thing see print, much less FOUR ISSUES of it!
      Linkara: Joe, what the hell are you doing? I went to take a bathroom break for a minute, and now you're doing my review?
      Angry Joe: (A few seconds of silence, followed by him throwing the comic away and running off)
    • Iron Liz asks everyone's immediate question. "Who the hell am I?"
  • This bit, with Spoony and Linkara's voices over the Nostalgia Chick and Marzgurl, respectively:
    Nostalgia Chick/Spoony: Yeah, the slow ass route. (Pause) Hey, do I look weird to you?
    Marzgurl/Linkara: No, just as masculine as ever.
    Nostalgia Chick/Spoony: (promptly fondles herself then feels her face)
  • Or this bit:
    Dr. Insano: Purpose that connects us.
    Nostalgia Chick: Purpose that pulls us.
    Benzaie: That guides us.
    Bhargo: That drives us.
    Lord Kat: That defines.
    Bennett the Sage: It is purpose that binds us.
    Linkara: We're here because of you, Mr. Anderson, we're here to take from you— (looks around) Wait, where the hell did you all come from?!
    • The outtakes reveal that it took a while for everyone to stop cracking up at Bennett popping up in the foreground and suddenly blocking out half the screen. Then they hit on the idea that his head in profile would be even funnier, and it starts all over again.
  • Dr. Linksano's attempt to explain how his universe is different from ours.
    Dr. Linksano: For example, in my universe, Wayne Brady is black!
    Spoony: He's black in this universe, too...
    Dr. Linksano: Silence, you sad, silly bastard!
  • Dr. Bearsano: "I've done things I'm not proud of, but they were all very adorable."
  • There's also Linkara's "our hero, ladies and gentlemen" Running Gag. However, thanks to the dimension shifts, this line is instead delivered by Mechakara.
  • The Silent Movie universe, complete with black and white, piano, Antiquated Linguistics, and title cards to let you know what they just said.
    Spoonkara: I say, dear boy, if the hues were incorrect in the starting collection, perhaps you should simply have stayed the course for the next one!
    Dr. Linksano: By George, where IS that piano noodling coming from?
  • The confrontation between the other-dimensional Insanos ends with Team TGWTG barging in, as a {[callback}} to the previous Warrior episode:
    Sage: Nobody rapes Santa on our watch!
    MarzGurl: (to Sage) Wrong year!
    Angry Joe: Let's get 'em!
  • The Spoony!Warrior parts are always excellent, but special props go to the one which is basically Spice Girls lyrics
    Spoony!Warrior: IF YOU WANT TO BE MY LOVER, YOU GOTTA GET WITH MY FRIENDS! MAKE IT LAST FOREVER FRIENDSHIP NEVER ENDS HOKE HOGAN!

    85: The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 3 
  • Linkara summoning a Battlizer and performing his "I AM A MAN!!" punch on the aforementioned comic, causing it to be set on fire.
    Linkara: I told you I was saving it.
  • Linkara's freakout leading to him creating "Beppo the Invisible Monkey" (while obviously disoriented).
    Linkara: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY, FRANK?! WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS MINISERIES?! WHY ARE THEY MAKING ME REVIEW THIS?! (lunges for the camera) WHY?! SOMEBODY, SEND HELP! GAAAAAAAAAA
    (Feed cuts off; a "Please Stand By" screen displays for several seconds)
    Linkara: (clothes and hat disheveled) You know, people often ask me how I can cope with such horrible comics...well, it's all thanks to the help of Beppo, the invisible monkey! (off to the side) Isn't that right, Beppo?
    (Beat)
    Linkara: (to the camera) Beppo says 'yes'".
    • Also worth noting is that Beppo is also a Shout-Out to Silver Age Superman's pet Kryptonian monkey.
  • Linkara: Hello and Welcome to Atop the Fourth Wall, where bad comics burn! Say... * Pulls out his pocket watch as the Miller Time music starts* It's- * Gets up and tries to make a break for it as the Miller Time music screeches to a halt*
  • In response to Miller naming a porn star to who takes up the name Big Barda "Hot Gates" in a reference to 300, Linkara plays the clip of Benzaie explaining that 300 is really about constipation while driving to film Kickassia just to show how great interpretation of symbolism is. Best. Take That. Ever.
  • "Back to the bottle." (chugs from a brown-bagged liquor bottle)
  • "So here's a video of a kitten instead!"
  • The Stinger at the end. "Eh, who are you people? Where's my soup? You want to see pictures of my grandchildren?"
  • Linkara saying that Frank Miller has "all the subtlety of an elephant singing Ave Maria while doing the can-can," just for the imagery.

    86: Tandy Computer Whiz Kids: Fit to Win 
  • In Tandy Computer Wiz Kids, the teacher asks her students what this great new enterprise is that will energize the economy like never before. Linkara gives a gleeful shout of "Prostitution!"
    • The appearances of Duke Nukem and Popeye.
    • The Stinger: DID YOU STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM?! YOU DID, YOU SONS OF BITCHES!
    • Him making fun of the blatant Product Placement: "Alec, why are you doing a commercial? I know all of that! I'm the one who BOUGHT them!"
    • He decides that the main characters are all undercover policemen.

    87: Anita Blake: The Laughing Corpse #1- 2 
  • Linkara doing Anita Blake: The Laughing Corpse as Harvey Finevoice. You'd think it gets old after a while, but...
    • "The kids were playing with Jell-O again!"
    • "No, that's a Barbie doll."

    88: Freak Force # 1 
  • Freak Force #1; 90's Kid's Suspiciously Similar Song version of the theme song. That is all.
    "90's Kid! He is a man! NO... wait, he is a kid! Uh, wait! Aren't I 90's Kid? Wh-Why am I talking about 90's Kid as if I'm not actually here?"
    • Also his alternate version of the normal second lines:
      "Brodsky, you are a genius! Liefeld, you are my god! What's another word that rhymes with genius...?"
    • The voices he gives to the characters. Good Lord.
    • All of 90's Kid's complaints of the book.
      "I believe they should add guns to the American flag."
      "A redhead walks down the street wearing striped pants that kinda make her look mint flavored."
      "Clearly he was pondering if it would be wise to add more pouches to his huge shoulder pads. For the record, the answer is CHA!!"
      "Cha! Big red dudes go on top of the Christmas tree, not the fire escape."
      "Whoa, this guy can make an Ace of Base album of out of old beer cans!"
      "Dude, no ones' gonna take you serious with a name like Mighty Man! You should add "blood" to it! Or at least Strike. That's Stryke with a Y."
    • 90's Kid doing the comic's sound effects.
    • When 90's Kid gets bored and decides to play Justice League Task Force on his Megadrive instead, the fact that the cartridge that was previously in was Shaq Fu. (And in the credits, Linkara says he owns two copies).
      • It gets better: He plays the game on the highest difficulty because it's "Hard Core" and then gets curb stomped... and promptly gets curb stomped again and proclaims the game awesome.
      • And in lieu of an ending 90's kid just keeps playing. and according to Pollo it just goes on like that for an hour.
    • The look of sheer shock and horror at 90's Kid's performance that Harvey Finevoice gives is absolutely hysterical as he asks Pollo what he was thinking asking 90s Kid to do the show and can he take over next week, please.
    • It's a cliche to call something a "Crowning X Of Awesome", but in this case it's true. 90s Kid's appearances are usually Crowning Moments Of Funny on their own, so giving him A Day in the Limelight makes the whole episode a Crowning Episode Of Awesome.

    89: Chain Gang War # 1 

    90: Ewoks # 9 
  • From Ewoks #9: "I'm distracting you so she can stab you."
    Linkara: It gets better. They're robots!
