MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
This week, Major Spoilerite Rich wants to know who would win in a fight between Captain Picard’s greatest foe, The Borg, or Doctor Who’s foe, the Cybermen.
MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Cerebus, Volume 1
This first volume, uniquely in the series, consists of one to three-issue storylines with only occasional back-references. Cerebus is introduced as an amoral barbarian mercenary, fighting (and betraying) for money and drinking it away. During his adventures, he encounters the warrior Pigts (whose religion reveres aardvarks) and the insane wizard Necross who turns himself into a giant stone Thrunk (a parody of The Thing). Most of the series’ prominent characters are introduced (or at least mentioned) in these issues, including Elrod of Melvinbone; Lord Julius; Artemis (a.k.a. The Roach); and Jaka. The series takes a sharp change in direction with issue #20 which is the first of the “Mind Games” issues that are a feature of the comic and introduces the philosophical Suenteus Po and the ultra-matriarchial Cirinists.
