MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
Sometimes I fear what is going through the mind of SkrullBryan. Heâ€™s the one that sent along the Poll of the Week for this week, and I guess from the Skrull point of view, one might spend endless hours pondering the crazy beard look â€“ especially if you are from a race that has more than enough reason to want to cover their chins. Regardless of the mental state of our shape shifting friend, the big question remainsâ€¦
Who makes this look “look” good?
B) Alan Moore
C) John Brown

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Surrogates: Flesh and Bone
In a dark, downtown alley in Central Georgia Metropolis, a juvenile prank goes too far and a homeless man is killed. When the ensuing investigation reveals that the attackers arenâ€™t who they appeared to be, justice depends on the testimony of a single missing witness â€“ a street snitch with a history of providing information to a cop named Harvey Greer. Harvey is placed on special assignment to track down the informant, but others have their own designs, including a wealthy socialite and an ex-con turned religious leader known to his followers as The Prophet. As days pass and anger among the anti-surrogate population grows, the city stands on a razorâ€™s edge. Will punishment be exacted in a courtroom or on the streets? Set fifteen years prior to the events of the original Surrogates graphic novel, Flesh & Bone sheds light on the past that binds the cast together. From the streets of Central Georgia Metropolis to the boardroom of Virtual Self, Inc., Flesh & Bone takes us on a journey through a city struggling to come to grips with its present. Not only a suspenseful thriller but also a cautionary tale, this book reminds us that tomorrow will be determined by the choices we make today.
