In the words of a not-at-all wise man, “Zaphod Beeblebrox, this is a very stiff drink.”  But what’s in the glass?  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Jack Daniels, Presents:




In the world of ‘John Byrne’s Next Men’, Mark IV was an artificial being, accidentally awakened, who went on the run from the very people who created him.  He met a very sad end after his backup story was streamlined into the main book (a pretty cool trick, and I still recommend ‘Next Men’ as a comic well ahead of its time.)  He shares his name with a blended malt scotch whiskey bottled exclusively for British Army & Navy Stores…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
