Or – “Fantomex Has Always Been A Bit Creepy, But…”
As the last volume of Uncanny X-Force ended, the three brains agglomerated into the body of the mutant known as Fantomex were cloned into individual bodies, leaving him with not only an evil counterpart but a female version of himself…
…and now they’re dating. Raise your hand if “Eww?” Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been a casual watcher of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ starting when someone dubbed a season (I think it was 2009?) the worst one ever. During that time, I have enjoyed a lot of quietly brilliant moments, a few utterly awful ones, crushed hard on Nasim Pedrad and Kristen Wiig (and even a little bit on new girl Cecily Strong) and also enjoyed the many cameos by the likes of Jon Hamm and Alec Baldwin. Most surprising of all was the transformation of boy-band jackwagon Justin Timberlake into a genuinely funny and remarkably versatile performer, who gave me an unstoppable laughing fit with nothing but his facial expressions and the words, “But privately? He hit that.” Back in the N-SYNC era, I would have bet nothing could make me a fan of any of those kids, but a decade or so later, I love me some J.T. and can’t stomach Jenny McCarthy. Life is indeed strange, which brings us to today’s query…

Or – “It Doesn’t Help That I Just Can’t Stand Negan…”
I have been taken to task recently on the social media sites in my assessment that both the Walking Dead TV series and this book have jumped different sharks in recent months, leaving me unhappy with the storytelling (which is different from being unhappy with what’s happening in the story, something this book has always excelled at.) Will this be the issue that changes my mind? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!

Fear, like beauty, is wonderful in that it is always in the eye of the beholder. One of the most terrifying events of my childhood came during a viewing of the Muppet show, during which a man’s furniture all came to horrifying, carnivorous life and began chasing him about with malefic intent. I never trusted my Gramma’s rust-orange corduroy couch again, let me tell you, though it was clearly up to no good before-hand. Still, the accidental nightmare fuel of that moment was a mere shiver compared to the horrifying sight of Edward Woodward’s immolation as human sacrifice or the inexorable vengeance of the circus folk after Cleopatra’s betrayal.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still can’t figure out exactly what Prince Randian was going to do with that knife, though, asking: What’s the single most terrifying movie moment in pop-culture history?
Remember: Once again, the best comment will win, thanks to Fangoria Presents!
